Zach Randolph Suspended For Game 7 Against Oklahoma City


Z-Bo’s no-no made him a no-go for Game 7. The NBA announced tonight that Zach Randolph is suspended for Game 7 of the Memphis Grizzlies’ first-round game against Oklahoma City on Saturday as a punishment for punching Steven Adams of the Thunder during the fourth quarter of the GRizzlies 104-84 loss Thursday night. Here is a link to the video, which shows Randolph clocking Adams in the right jaw with a closed fist as the two ran upcourt off the ball. The loss


Oklahoman newspaper calls Kevin Durant “Mr. Unreliable”

Doesn’t Clay Bennett’s family own the Oklahoman? I believe that is the case. But whatever the case, that was a low blow by the newspaper this morning printing a front page headline that read: “Mr. Unreliable.” I have a headline for Scott Brooks and his strategy in Game 5, which you can hear in this podcast with WHBQsports56 in Memphis. I think you will like it. The hosts, Greg and Eli, loved it. And as far as the Durant headline goes, there is a corollary to be drawn


Twitter reacts to Joey Crawford’s wild interference of Durant’s potential game-tying free throw, Jay Williams rips Durant’s final shot attempt


Joey Crawford is one of the most – if not the most – animated referees in the game. On Tuesday, his antics in overtime may have helped cost the Oklahoma City Thunder Game 5 against the Memphis Grizzlies:With 27.5 seconds remaining in the game and about to take his second free throw to tie the game, Kevin Durant was abruptly interrupted by Crawford as seen above. The reason for Crawford’s sudden course of action to prevent Durant from shooting his


NBA Owners Respond to Sterling’s Unprecedented Punishment

With much of the national discourse centering on Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, the reality of the matter is that a lifetime ban and a $2.5 million fine is the limit to what NBA commissioner Adam Silver is capable of doing. The rest falls on the shoulders of 29 team owners, as they—according to the NBA’s Constitution and By-Laws—must vote with a 3/4′s majority to force the sale of the team. Players, media pundits and people all across the nation


NBA players go nuts after Kevin Durant hit the most amazing shot of the year


The Oklahoma City Thunder lost to the Memphis Grizzlies 111-105 in overtime in Game 2 of the first round of the playoffs, but they only managed to get that far because of Kevin Durant, who hit the most ridiculous shot of the year in the fourth quarter. With 13.3 seconds left in regulation and down 98-93, Durant found himself in the corner to catch a pass from Russell Westbrook. With Marc Gasol draped all over him, Durant lost balance and was

The Indiana Pacers, finally, brought home a big win. During a two month slump that has caused the league, media, fans and Pacers themselves to question their capability, Sunday’s 102-97 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder should help them sleep easy. At least for a night. With the win, the Pacers positioned themselves to successfully claim home court advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs. Despite Friday’s crucial loss at Miami, because the Heat slipped up against the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday, the Pacers


Tweet of the Day: Jeremy Lamb, Perry Jones III With Hilarious Memes


In the late-1990s Bill Cosby hosted a television show that showcased children giving hilarious answers to simple questions. The show was called, “Kids Say The Darndest Things“. The modern internet era could breed a show of its own using funny pictures accompanied by comical captions—generally called memes. Title the show, “Pictures Say The Darndest Things” and give it a funny host like Ced the Entertainer or Kevin Hart, you might have a syndicated hit. Some people find humor in taking photos of


Bernucca: Have Pacers Lost Belief in Themselves?

Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

Believe it or not, there’s someone out there who doesn’t think the Indiana Pacers are coming apart at the seams.  “Everybody goes through this,” Spurs guard Tony Parker said last week after San Antonio manhandled Indiana, 103-77, on the Pacers’ home court. “I’m not worried about them. They’ll still make it to the Eastern Conference finals and they’ll still play Miami.” Parker is somewhat right. From time to time, every championship contender has a stretch during a season where they look ordinary.
