Stellar Company: NBA All-Star Starters Set

History was messing around the league the past few days and that includes writing new story lines in time for the NBA All-Star starters announcement Friday. Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry broke into the books by making a late push in the polls, surpassing LeBron James as 2015's leading vote-getter for the annual showcase. Meanwhile, brothers Pau and Marc Gasol became the first siblings to start in an All-Star game. "This means a lot; it's something that I don't take for granted," Curry Read More

Midseason Report: Biggest Disappointments In The NBA

The Golden State Warriors are better than expected. The Atlanta Hawks may well be the Team of the Year (if there ever was one) halfway through the season. Andrew Wiggins is rounding his game up nicely in Minnesota and looks like the runaway winner for the Rookie of the Year. But let's not delve too much on the positive side, folks. General managers don't always earn their stripes (and cash) for being too complimentary. By pointing out who's not playing up to par, hey, maybe we'll get their attention Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 13 (Jan.19- Jan.25)

Honestly, I couldn't remember one season where there are more transactions than Knicks' W's. That's not a knock on the Knickerbockers but more of a nod to the front offices doing everything in their power to be more relevant today or in the future. This week alone saw: Jeff Green move from Boston to Memphis (along with Russ Smith) Tayshaun Prince and Quincy Pondexter from Memphis to New Orleans (along with Grizzlies' future first-round pick to BOS) New Orleans' Austin Rivers was also Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 12 (Jan.12-Jan.18)

I can barely keep up with the transactions happening around the league and it's still January. In the past few days, the Cleveland Cavaliers acquired Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith from New York while paying a steep price (two first round picks) to land Timofey Mozgov from the Denver Nuggets. Dion Waiters, too, went from Ohio to Oklahoma in the same deal. (Mozgov is potentially more valuable now that he's on a team desperate for a rim-protecting big man. He should be getting minutes as a back-up Read More

Possible 2015 NBA All-Star Snubs

The third returns for the NBA All-Star ballots are in and as usual, there were some surprises to and fro in both conferences. In the East, Pau Gasol is the 2nd leading vote-getter in the frontcourt comfortably behind LeBron James and slightly above Carmelo Anthony. The backcourt's vote leader is John Wall (very well-deserved) but oft-injured superstar Dwyane Wade is in Wall's rear-view mirror, over a hundred thousand votes atop Kyle Lowry and Kyrie Irving and nearly twice the votes Jimmy Butler Read More

Six Players Change Addresses As Three-Team Trade Pushes Through

The NBA's trade deadline is still over a month away but that didn't make teams sit back and wait for February to make bold moves. Dion Waiters, J.R. Smith, and Iman Shumpert were among the players involved in a three-team trade between the Cleveland Cavaliers, the New York Knicks and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Smith and Shumpert went from New York to Ohio and Waiters will join Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant in Oklahoma to create a potentially explosive scoring trio.

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 11 (Jan.5- Jan.11)

In NBA fantasy basketball, basically you have to watch out for a couple of things: Injuries and playing time. The latter is often a by-product of the former but come to think of it, the other way around is also true. Say for example, LeBron James. Ever since "The King" step foot in an NBA arena, he was handed the key to a franchise immediately. At a mere 18 years old, 'Bron was playing almost 40 minutes a night with Carlos Boozer, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, and Jeff McInnis. His workload hasn't come down Read More
