1. Offensive Machines
Since 1990, only FIVE teams have had 3 players averaging 20+ points: 90-91 Golden State Warriors (Run TMC), 2007-08 Warriors, (Monta, B-Diddy, Captain Jack), 2013-14 Sacramento Kings (Boogie, IT, Rudy Gay) 2016-17 Warriors, and 2017-18 Warriors (Steph, Klay, KD).
2. Kawhi open to leaving San Antonio to take less money?
In case you're living under a rock, Kawhi Leonard has reportedly asked for a trade and would be willing to forego the Supermax and take less money. How Read More
Kobe Bryant will have both of his jerseys (8 and 24) retired tonight at Staples Center, so in honor of the Black Mamba, let's take a look back at EIGHT of his most impressive (but lesser-known) stats he recorded during his historic career.
Yep, we know all about the 81-point game-- second-highest scoring performance ever. Blah Blah. Here's what most people don't know: That night, he had 2/3 of his team's scoring output (and 36% of both team's scoring output) and that game pushed his average 1.1 Read More
1. Kyle Lowry
The Toronto Raptors guard is arguably the best player whenever he steps on the Olympic floor. Need proof?
Lowry: 1st in defensive rating, 3rd in net rating. Team USA was +192 with him on the floor. Yeah, he's good. https://t.co/Xj5tAKyPDd

2. That time when David Robinson decided to steal one scoring title from Shaq on the last day of the regular season...
... and finished with 71 points, 14 rebounds, Read More
The Oklahoma City Thunder landing the heavier punches through the first four games of the Western Conference Finals is somewhat a surprise. But the Golden State Warriors coming back from a 1-3 hole is just as, or even more, surprising.
Here are the 3 things we learned from that helluva series:
1. Makes me realize how special a player Kobe Bryant is.
I don't mean to come across as a fanboy and I apologize putting someone in this conservation that is not even remotely involved in the series Read More

Here are the best DFS basketball options for a six-game March 1 game day.
March 1, 2016-- Best DFS Basketball Value Picks
Damian Lillard, PG ($9,600)
Anyone with a brain would be tempted to pick Stephen Curry, who is averaging like a hundred points lately. However, the reigning MVP is doubtful for the Atlanta game. If you want to pay for another high quality point guard, there is no better option than Lillard here. Dame's least productive outing for the past 10 games is a 40-FP output Read More
Feb. 21, 2016-- DFS Best Value Picks
LeBron James, SF ($9,700)
You can either go with Russell Westbrook or Kevin Durant here but LeBron James is cheaper while averaging almost the same Fantasy Points over the past 10 games as Westbrook. It seems Tyronn Lue's offense has awoken the fantasy beast in "The King". The only "mishap" in the past 10 is the Jan. 27 game in Phoenix, where the four-time MVP scored "only" 37.25 FP.
Pau Gasol, C, ($8,500)
I'm going with Pau Gasol for two Read More
It used to be so exciting to watch Kobe Bryant will his team into a win by doing everything statistically, but sadly, his body can't take it anymore.
Bryant already announced he will be retiring at the end of the season but ironically, this made it the perfect time to hang on to "The Black Mamba". That's not to say you should be targeting him on trades but if somehow you used a 7th round pick on him, this would not be the time to be impatient.
This year isn't exactly a banner season for Kobe Read More
Here are NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks in a six-game Friday.
John Wall, PG ($8,300)
Wall's Washington Wizards have disappointed so far and in some stretches this season, their best player did too. However, if the last two games are any indication, the speedster may have just turned a corner. Wall dropped back-to-back 60 fantasy-point games against Cleveland and L.A., and will be facing the Phoenix Suns at home, who incidentally is the league's worst in defending point guards.
