The five players on a basketball team have their positions and responsibilities. One of these positions is the Shooting Guard. Some of the best players in basketball history are shooting guards and that includes Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. A shooting guard can also be called by other names. When you hear the word off guard, that generally points to the shooting guard although they may also be referred to as "wings," "two-guard," and a "swingman." (Oftentimes, small forwards may also be called Read More
Kobe Bryant's signature models are some of the best basketball shoes ever made and I'm not just saying that because I'm a Kobe Bryant fan. His shoes-- Kobe 6, 8, and 9-- not only look good, but they also blazed a trail for low top basketball shoes. With that being said, the best Kobe shoes are not only limited in the $200 models. Some of the best Kobe shoes for basketball are present in the budget "hundred-dollar or less" models. Let's take a look at some of these: 1.) Kobe Mentality 2 The Kobe Read More
I'm a huge Kobe Bryant fan and possibly even more so when it comes to his shoes. Kobe Bryant wore many shoes during his career, and it is hard ranking the 5 best Kobe shoes of all time. Nevertheless, we will do our best... Kobe shoes often offer some of the best possible packages in terms of playability, traction, and cushioning, these bad boys often came in the most amazing colorways. (Yes, I'm talking about them Bruce Lees, Grinch, and Preludes!) Now let us stroll down memory lane and take Read More
We basketball fans will always remember Kobe Bryant and if you have played fantasy basketball long enough, you probably remember Mamba's body of work in his best fantasy seasons. First of all, the 81-point game. Kobe's final line was 81, plus 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, 1 block, 7 3pts made. That would have been the most points scored in DFS basketball in the modern era (103 points in DraftKings and 100.2 in Yahoo). Only Wilt's 100, Jordan's 69 and Hakeem's 38-17-12 triple double are above Read More
Superstars dropping huge stat lines on a nightly basis are common occurrences in the NBA not only today but going two, three, or even four decades back. The league did not record blocks until 1973-74 so many of George Mikan's or Bill Russell's or Wilt Chamberlain's big stat lines were lost. Nevertheless, we are still left with some of the best fantasy basketball seasons ever starting with some old school stuff. 1.) Wilt Chamberlain, 1961-1962 espn.com Back when the NBA only records points, Read More
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
