Malice in the Palace, 10 Years Later

Gray slacks. White, gray and black button-up shirt. Black leather jacket. It’s the type of event that unconsciously forces you to remember what you were wearing when it transpired. Ten years ago today, not only am I able to recall what I had on, the company around me, and where I was, but I can [...]

As free agency progressed, it became more apparent that LeBron James was heading back to Cleveland. The rumors and signs eventually became too obvious to ignore.

UConn is the New Duke

Whether you love or hate them, for better or worse, and if it makes sense or not, Duke is the gold-standard in the eyes of many when it comes to college basketball. Don’t shoot the messenger. Part of the reason is winning, but it has more to do with allure. Those two used to be [...]

Phil Jackson Compares Jordan to Kobe in Upcoming Memoir; Jordan Comes Out On Top

The closest thing we’ve seen to Michael Jordan has been Kobe Bryant. And I don’t mean from a basketball skillset standpoint, I mean from an emulation point of view. Ever since he entered the league in 1996, Kobe has walked, talked, pointed, chewed gum, shot free throws and fade-aways just like Mike. The similarities were [...]

The Writer Who Cost LeBron a Unanimous MVP States His Case

Over the weekend, LeBron James of the Miami Heat was named NBA MVP for the 4th time in his career. It’s scary because if you take a look at his career stats, LeBron seems to be getting better, as tough as that is to believe. Yesterday, we learned that of a possible 121 first-place votes, [...]

THD Behind the Scenes as Wizards Knock Off Thunder

THD Behind the Scenes as Wizards Knock Off Thunder

The NBA can be a very unpredictable League, where it’s tough to take any team too lightly. We saw that last night as the NBA-worst 4-28 Washington Wizards hosted and defeated the NBA-best 26-7 Oklahoma City Thunder, and I represented The Basketball News at the Verizon Center in D.C. to cover the game. Now, it’s [...]

Who Made the Worse Decision: James Harden or the Rockets?

Who Made the Worse Decision: James Harden or the Rockets?

The National Basketball Association can be a very opportunistic place. Occasionally, things may go your way, or “fall in your lap”, and you must simply seize and capitalize on this. From the very moment James Harden was drafted 3rd overall by the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2009 NBA draft, he has done just that. [...]
