In the 2009 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls selected James Johnson from Wake Forest with the 16th overall pick. While he showed flashes of potential in his rookie season in Chicago, it was one plagued with inconsistency. For every block, steal or offensive rebound, there were missed shots and turnovers, leading him to playing spot minutes off of Vinny Del Negro's bench.
It's Super Bowl week, everyone! On Sunday, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will face off at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey to determine a champion for the 2013-2014 NFL season.
For the third straight year, Shane Battier got his Heat teammates together in Fillmore to put their vocals to the test in "Battioke" - an event that raises money for Shane's 'Take Charge Foundation', which is dedicated to providing financial aid for underserved students looking to go to college.
Life was better when Markieff Morris and Marcus Morris were on different teams because, for once, I could tell the two apart. But now that they're both on the Phoenix Suns, life has been made difficult again for me.
Last night in a loss to the L.A. Clippers, Terrence Ross shocked the entire world. In 44 minutes of game time, the eighth overall pick in last year's draft tied Vince Carter's franchise record for points scored in a game with 51 and did so quite efficiently, shooting 16-for-29 from the field and 10-for-17 from three.
Being a rookie in the NBA isn't easy. If it was, we probably wouldn't have that thing called, "the rookie wall" that people harp on about every year as soon as someone's numbers start to drop, even in the slightest. But that's understandable.
The second game of a quiet Sunday night in the NBA featured a match-up between two teams destined for the lottery: The Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic.
Apparently, there were a pair of important NFL games on last night, so it turned out to be a pretty quiet night in the NBA.
Out of the 30 teams in the Association, less than a handful run the pick-and-roll as well as the Houston Rockets do. A lot of that has to do with the deadly combination of James Harden and Dwight Howard, as well as their mix of perimeter shooters, such as Chandler Parsons, Patrick Beverley and Francisco Garcia.
In my best Kanye West voice, "Last night was mad real." The Bulls went into triple overtime for the second time this season, Greg Oden played his first regular season game in forever, the Clippers made a ridiculous comeback, Nick Young got ejected and ,well, SO MUCH MORE. It was a good night to be an NBA fan. So with that being said, let's get right to all the fun.
