Sprung: Curry Could Become Best Playoff Shooter Ever

Curry Playoff Shot Chart

Stephen Curry has a legitimate chance to go down as the greatest shooter in NBA playoff history. With just two days before the Golden State-Cleveland NBA Finals finally begins, an appreciation of Curry’s shooting stroke — and the changing landscape of how offenses emphasize the three — point to Curry having a chance to at least be part of an elite playoff performance list. The 27-year-old MVP ideally will be playing in many more postseasons over the course of his career and should be


SH Blog: Wolves ship Williams to Hornets, may cut Neal; Hawks clear cap room by trading Payne to Minnesota

Flip Saunders

The Minnesota Timberwolves weren’t able to fetch much in return for veteran point guard Mo Williams, shipping both he and second-year guard Troy Daniels to the Charlotte Hornets for guard Gary Neal and a 2019 second-round pick. The trade was first reported by Shams Charania of RealGM, who says the Wolves (11-41) will now explore buyout negotiations with Neal. Neal, 30, has disappointed in his role with Charlotte this year — shooting just 29% from beyond the arc, his specialty — but


Scotto: Forget New York and LA – Rondo and Mavs a Perfect Long-Term Fit


While Knicks president Phil Jackson spent Monday night finalizing a three-team deal that he hopes will make Madison Square Garden relevant again, across the East River, Mavericks guard Rajon Rondo was helping Dallas beat Brooklyn with one of his patented double-doubles. You know, the one that doesn’t require points. Jackson has the woeful Knicks going all in on free agency, creating enough cap space to possibly lure two stars to the World’s Most Famous Arena. The main targets are obvious – Marc Gasol,


SH Blog: LeBron James says 29-point loss to Hawks is not embarrassing, Mavericks trying to acquire Rajon Rondo

LeBron James

After going on an eight-game tear through the early parts of December, it looked as though the Cleveland Cavaliers were finally starting to figure things out. LeBron James took on more of a point forward’s role, Kyrie Irving became the go-to scorer, and Kevin Love was seemingly the third option on most nights. But just as things began to look much better, the tides have turned again recently, with the Cavaliers losing three of their last four contests, including Wednesday’s 127-98


Scotto: Is Jabari Parker The Next Carmelo Anthony Or Paul Pierce?

Jabari Parker

After enduring a 15-67 season, there was light at the end of the tunnel for the Milwaukee Bucks. There was a new face of the franchise with the ability to light up a scoreboard like a towering billboard in Times Square. There was Jabari Parker. The November Rookie of the Month spoke exclusively to SheridanHoops.com during coach Jason Kidd’s infamous return to Brooklyn. Parker discussed his transition to the league, his relationship with Kidd, improving his game and comparisons to Carmelo Anthony and


Sheridan: Why are Cavs so “Fragile?”


It all starts with LeBron James in Cleveland, and when the Chosen One comes out and says he is playing for a “fragile” team, panic buttons start to be pressed. We’ll see what kind of buttons coach David Blatt pushes Monday night against Orlando after saying he expects to tinker with his starting lineup, but this comes down to a bigger question: Why is LeBron James playing in November mode this November? It was understandable the last couple of seasons in


SH Blog: LeBron James and Dirk Nowitzki want less games played, Kobe Bryant expected to have minutes restriction this season


The NBA has been considering, or at least entertaining the idea of finding ways for the regular season to be shorter in some way to help prevent its valuable players from being too worn out. So in Sunday’s upcoming preseason contest between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets, the league will try out a 44-minute game for the first time ever just as a simple sample to evaluate. Here are the details, from ESPN: The contest will be four minutes shorter than


SH Blog: New Zealand drops heartbreaker to Turkey; T’Wolves break season ticket record


Nobody warned me that the first day of the World Cup coincided with the first day of college football. Instead of watching my Maryland Terrapins thump James Madison by 45 in a total mismatch, I could have watched Team USA demolish Finland by 59 in a total mismatch. Okay, maybe I made the right choice. Tomorrow, though, the US has Turkey, who weren’t gifted a tournament spot because the guy who made Angry Birds said he wanted them to be in
