Tweet of the Day: NBA Players Reflect On 9/11


It was 12 years ago today that the horrors of 9/11 were etched into the annals of history, yet the events of that day still seem so recent. Two airplanes crashed into the World Trade Center towers in New York City causing them to collapse and two other planes flew towards targets further south—one crashing in a field in Pennsylvania, the other hitting the Pentagon in Washington. Today, as many across the United States take time to reflect on the tragedy that


Tweet of the Day: Nate Robinson will miss Chicago


Free agent guard Nate Robinson has a new home. He will be joining the Denver Nuggets for the next two seasons. As detailed in today’s Evening News, the deal is reportedly worth the bi-annual salary-cap exception, which is about $4.1 million. The addition of Robinson gives the Nuggets six new players heading into the 2013-14 NBA season, including JJ Hickson, Darrell Arthur, Randy Foye, Erick Green (46th pick in the NBA draft) and Joffrey Lauvergne (55th pick).

Bernucca: What’s “laughable” about Lakers is D’Antoni


After Friday’s dispiriting home loss to the Washington Wizards, Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni could not take it any longer. D’Antoni went on a wide-ranging rant against his team, targeting its lack of commitment and effort on both sides of the ball.

SH Blog: Wall remains adamant about his worth as max player, Chris Paul calls out Clippers defense

John Wall

Not long ago, many wondered if John Wall could ever reclaim his reputation as the possible savior of the Washington Wizards – a burdening label immediately thrust upon him when he was drafted with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010-2011 NBA Draft. In fact, some openly wondered if he’s even worth building around. And when I say “not long ago”, I’m talking about just weeks ago. [Read more…]


Fantasy Spin: Heat Make It 23 Straight; Bynum To Have Surgery

Spencer Hawes

In a terrific contest, LeBron James (37 PTS, 12 AST, 7 REB, 2 STL, 2 BLK) powered the Heat to their 23rd consecutive win, but it could have gone either way.
