On Monday, I documented the 14 teams destined to miss the postseason , although I believe three teams - Pelicans, Nuggets and Rockets - are better than some Eastern Conference playoff-bound squads. Part II - it'll be as good as "Back to the Future II," but not quite "The...
We are just days away from the start of yet another NBA campaign. Though everyone starts off on equal footing, it won't take long for the herd to be thinned and the Sixers and Spurs to veer off in opposite directions. It is now time for tradition. Let's rank the top 30 teams,...
In our society, it's never too early to think about awards. You can easily access information on this season's Oscar frontrunners, despite the fact the show is not for another almost four months. I have no special powers to see into the future. (No one does.) But here's a...
It's been a rough month for Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo. The second-year pro has not played in the preseason because of a sprained left MCL and on Thursday suffered a facial fracture in practice that will keep him sidelined indefinitely. Oladipo was hurt after taking an...
When the reigning MVP, the second-best player in the known universe, is going to be shut down for two months, everyone panics. Kevin Durant will be gone for two months after he undergoes surgery for a Jones fracture in his right foot. That's a gigantic loss for sure. No team can...
Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo suffered a sprained right MCL last week and will miss Tuesday's preseason opener against the Miami Heat. Oladipo, who is expected to start the season in Orlando's new-look backcourt along with former Nuggets guard Evan Fournier, injured his...
When the NBA announced extensions with ESPN/ABC and TNT on Monday, minds began to wander. First, the reported sum by the New York Times is $24 billion over the nine- year agreement. That number is so staggering it's incomprehensible for us commoners to discuss rationally, but...
(From L) Frank Vogel, Monty Williams and Kevin McHale could be on the hot seat already. With NBA Media Day barely behind us, it's perfectly fair and reasonable to begin speculating as to which coaches will be fired soonest. We live in a world of immediacy. Blame it on the...
The Boston Celtics signed forward Evan Turner on Monday. Turner averaged 13.9 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 81 combined games with Philadelphia and Indiana last season. The No. 2 pick by the 76ers in the 2010 draft, Turner has averaged 11.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.1...
