We are about three weeks into free agency and almost all big names are off the board and only one real big trade piece (that everyone is aware of) in Carmelo Anthony is still on the market. That got me thinking about the casualties of the 2017 free agency period from a player perspective and [...]

Noel, Mavericks Far Apart in Contract Talks

Noel, Mavericks Far Apart in Contract Talks

Many assumed when the Mavericks acquired Nerlens Noel in a trade before the 2017 NBA trade deadline that a quick and easy long-term extension was a mere formality as the Mavericks would pay big money to lock up their center of the future.

All basketball fans are aware that the 2004 Summer Olympic Games are the black mark on an otherwise perfect resume for Team USA Basketball since professional athletes were allowed to play in the 1992 Summer Olympic Games in Barcelona.

Rockets Keep Improving, Sign Mbah Moute

Rockets Keep Improving, Sign Mbah Moute

The Houston Rockets are all in on doing one thing this summer: build a team to challenge the Golden State Warriors. The Rockets, somewhat surprisingly, were a mid 50 win team last season behind James Harden’s historic season and incredible success at point guard.
