Well, those pesky Clippers did it. They knocked off the Hornets last night in what was the most lopsided game of the season record-wise thus far. At times it seemed like the Clippers were trying to give the game away, since they were absolutely brutal from the free throw line, going 17-34 on the night. But hey, when you are 1-12 entering the game, a win is a freakin’ win. Continue Reading

Think back to July 8th. LeBron James sat around with Jim Gray and made his decision. The man was taking his talents to South Beach. Woo-hoo! And then came the claims from some NBA analysts about how this could potentially be the greatest team ever, and a team that would challenge the ’95-96 Chicago Bulls’ record win total of 72.

The toddler has been identified as two-year-old Lucas Anthony Tang, who managed to crawl over the glass partition from a luxury box which led to his fall.

Miami Heat

Everyone knows where the weakness of the Miami Heat is. It’s in the frontcourt, which is a place people tend to look past since they have LeBron James and Dwyane Wade taking care of business pretty much everywhere else. But as the Heat have shown so far this season, it takes more than just two superstars to be successful in the NBA. Continue Reading

The game that was ranked number one on yesterday’s NBA schedule ended up being the most lopsided of the bunch. The Lakers, behind Pau Gasol‘s perfection, blew out the Warriors at Staples Center, and once again proved why they are the defending champions. Elsewhere, the Celtics lost in Toronto, the Hornets won again (check out James Grayson’s post-game thoughts as well), and the Pistons beat the Wizards in overtime. Continue Reading

The New Orleans Hornets have played 12 games this season. After an ugly 75-71 win in Sacramento this evening, they’ve won 11 of those games. However, it still doesn’t feel like Chris Paul and the Hornets are getting the respect they deserve. Maybe it’s because the Hornets aren’t filled with stars. But as they have shown thus far this season, having hard workers like David West and Emeka Okafor more than makes up for that lack of star power at multiple positions. Continue Reading

Blake Griffin Kind of Embarrasses Timofey Mozgov (Video)

If there’s one thing we know about Clippers forward Blake Griffin, it’s this: the dude can dunk. And well, Timofey Mozgov found that out the hard way in the Knicks’ victory over the Clippers last night at Staples Center. I would try to explain this dunk, but honestly, words can’t describe this display of athleticism. So let’s go to the video. Continue Reading
