Don't Miss The Kemba Walker Show Don't Miss The Kemba Walker Show

A surefire way of embarrassing yourself is by saying anything optimistic-sounding about the Charlotte Hornets based on something they do in the first month of an NBA season. They finished each of the last two seasons with 36 wins, and their biggest roster upgrade headed into this season involved jettisoning Dwight…

Cheese Is Cascading From Jimmy Butler's Pores As If From A Grater Cheese Is Cascading From Jimmy Butler's Pores As If From A Grater

“Sure. Go ahead, boo me. It ain’t going to change the way I play. That’s going to make me smile more. So please, come on with it,” aspiring villain Jimmy Butler told Wolves reporter Jon Krawczynski a week ago.

Raving Cavs Fan Yells At Amused DeMarcus Cousins Because He "Destroyed The League" Raving Cavs Fan Yells At Amused DeMarcus Cousins Because He "Destroyed The League"

“You ruined the NBA! It’s real funny! [Unintelligible burbling] money!” said a damp fan in a Cavaliers jersey to DeMarcus Cousins during Sunday’s Warriors-Nuggets game. “Punk ass! He destroyed the league,” added the rapidly reddening man.

Trae Young Is Letting It Fly Trae Young Is Letting It Fly

Trae Young was a tempting punchline leading up to the draft, and even for sometime after. You can count me among those doubters, at least to the extent that I foresaw a future in which he the teeny depraved chucker would get steadily shredded on the other end of the floor. Which is to say, I foresaw him being a…

Brandon Ingram Shoves James Harden; Rajon Rondo Brawls With Chris Paul [UPDATES] Brandon Ingram Shoves James Harden; Rajon Rondo Brawls With Chris Paul [UPDATES]

Somehow, the events that led to this fistfight started out with wayward bozo Lance Stephenson as one of the players trying to keep the peace. When Houston’s 124-115 win was still a one-point game Saturday night, Lakers forward Brandon Ingram shoved Rockets guard James Harden in the back after a foul. As Stephenson and…

It'll Be Fun To Watch LeBron And The Lakers Become Instant Oatmeal It'll Be Fun To Watch LeBron And The Lakers Become Instant Oatmeal

Here’s what LeBron James had to say after his first taste of loss with the Lakers, a 128-119 season opener against the Blazers:

Nik Stauskas? Nik Stauskas! Nik Stauskas? Nik Stauskas!

The Blazers spoiled LeBron James’s Lakers debut last night thanks to a big night from, uh, hmm, sorry, it says here that it was “Nik Stauskas,” which can’t be right?

Markelle Fultz Is Still Struggling, But He Finally Made A Three Markelle Fultz Is Still Struggling, But He Finally Made A Three

The Sixers didn’t really need Markelle Fultz to play well in tonight’s 127-108 blowout of the Bulls, which was good, because something’s clearly still affecting him. He finally made his first career three-pointer, though, and it made for a nice little moment. The Philly crowd celebrated like they’d traded for a…

Animation Festival Drops Kobe Bryant After Protest Over 2003 Rape Allegation Animation Festival Drops Kobe Bryant After Protest Over 2003 Rape Allegation

Oscar-winning cartoon maker Kobe Bryant was set to be a jury member on this weekend’s second annual Animation Is Film, a Los Angeles-based film festival, but organizers rescinded his invitation after the animation community protested the inclusion of “accused rapist and sexual predator Kobe Bryant.” The news was first…

DeAndre Ayton Is Good DeAndre Ayton Is Good

The sorry-ass Mavericks lost to the sorry-ass Suns in Phoenix last night, thanks mostly to a fourth-quarter explosion from Devin Booker. These two teams will most likely be headed south sometime around the all-star break, so the only reason to tune in would have been to check out the NBA debuts of Luka Dončić and…

Elfrid Payton Has Neat New Hair And Neat New Teammates Elfrid Payton Has Neat New Hair And Neat New Teammates

Some of the uncertainty coming into this season, for the New Orleans Pelicans, concerned the departure of Rajon Rondo, who played an important role in the team’s strong finish last season and then left in free agency, and his replacement, Elfrid Payton. If, like mine, your brain has been turned to slush by worms and…

Kevin Durant Laughs Off Joe Lacob's Plea To Re-Sign With Warriors Kevin Durant Laughs Off Joe Lacob's Plea To Re-Sign With Warriors

Kudos to The Athletic’s Anthony Slater for inspecting a deeply unholy NBA rite closely enough to spot something wonderful. Had you watched the Warriors ring presentation as carefully as The Athletic’s Anthony Slater, you would’ve seen Kevin Durant walk over to Warriors owner Joe Lacob, only for the team’s head …

NBA Developmental League To Offer $125,000 Contracts To Top High School Prospects NBA Developmental League To Offer $125,000 Contracts To Top High School Prospects

The NBA’s developmental league has unveiled a program that could greatly loosen the NCAA’s grip on top high school basketball prospects. The league will begin offering what it calls “Select Contracts” that pay $125,000 for one year to just-graduated high school players who would rather forgo a one-and-done year at the…

Blake Griffin Had A Bad Start To His Season Thanks To Jarrett Allen

We all wondered what the high-flying Blake Griffin would look in the latter stages of his career when he could no longer consistently rely on his athleticism for buckets like he once used to. Thankfully, Jarrett Allen was there to answer that question for us tonight.

Knicks Fan Scores From Half-Court Before His Team Makes A Field Goal

The NBA’s schedule-makers were kind to the New York Knicks, giving them an evenly-matched opponent for their home opener: the Atlanta Hawks. As expected, almost two minutes of game time passed before either team scored, but the Hawks soon took early control of the game. They went up 10-2 on the Knicks, forcing coach…

Kevin Durant's Brother's Instagram Comment Definitely Means That Kevin Won't Re-Sign With The Warriors Kevin Durant's Brother's Instagram Comment Definitely Means That Kevin Won't Re-Sign With The Warriors

Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors yawned through their win in Wednesday’s season opener against the Thunder. Durant had 27 points, eight boards, and six assists, and he seemed to have a nice, chill time playing with his buddies after everyone received their championship rings. Fittingly, he celebrated with a…

Jayson Tatum Is Already Good At Everything Jayson Tatum Is Already Good At Everything

A full-strength Celtics team probably wants to run their offense something like this: Kyrie Irving penetrates or somehow initiates the action, then a Gordon Hayward–led cast of slashers takes advantage of whatever chaos Irving stirs up to knock down an open jumper or exploit a mismatch. However, the Celtics are…

After All That, Jimmy Butler Is Ready To Play For The Timberwolves Tonight After All That, Jimmy Butler Is Ready To Play For The Timberwolves Tonight

Jimmy Butler went about trying to launch himself off the team he no longer wants to play for about as loudly and obnoxiously as possible. There was the trade demand, followed by the staged and vindictive practice, followed by post-practice shit-talking on national TV. Despite all that, the Minnesota Timberwolves are…

Whatever The Hell Jaylen Brown Did To Joel Embiid Here, It Ruled Whatever The Hell Jaylen Brown Did To Joel Embiid Here, It Ruled

Dear lord, Jaylen Brown is unwell in the best possible way. Every neuron in his big smart brain must have been hollering at him not to do what he did. Joel Embiid made opponents shoot 12 percent worse at the rim last season. He has made a living by—among many other things—scaring opponents out of exactly this kind of…
