With the return of Dwyane Wade, the Heat have undertaken a renewed sense of urgency and passion, just in time to make a significant playoff run. One notable change: the reemergence of Justise Winslow. Touted as the D-Wade’s eventual heir, Winslow needed to weather several setbacks–from finding his shot to facing injuries–before settling into his […]
Trae Young, the Norman native. The freshman sensation averaging 30 points and 10 assists per game. Just turned 19 years old, and Trae has already showed the NBA scouts that he stands alone as the best guard in the country. And with his Steph Curry range, he will make his transition to the NBA a […]
There’s athletic. There’s incredibly athletic. And then there’s Greek Freak athletic. In yet another impressive example of Giannis Anetokounmpo’s dunking abilities, he brought out the “I can easily sail over another player” dunk by posterizing the Knicks’ Tim Hardaway, Jr. What makes this an impressive feat is not jumping over a full-grown NBA player; that’s happened several […]

@SacramentoKings De’Aaron Fox showed out last night in his NBA debut vs. the Suns. De’Aaron finished 18 points, 5 steals and 4 assist. Bet your ass Vlade Divac and the Kings are pretty damn excited about this pick.

As part of the deal, the Pacers will acquire guard Victor Oladipo and second year big man Domantas Sabonis. Sucks for Pacers, but does this make OKC an actual contender in the West?
@Sportstalk During the Eastern Conference Finals Shaquille O’neal and Charles Barkley had a heated exchange that quickly got personal. During last nights NBA Awards Show they picked up where they left off with the fat and ugly jokes… Can we please have Shaq and Chuck commentate every NBA game next year?
