This Looks Like The Year The Celtics Finally Trade Rajon Rondo

Swapping Rajon Rondo trade rumors is America's oldest and most treasured holiday tradition. But this year, the Celtics' last chance to get something for their star point guard, it seems like it's actually going to happen. Last night, all around the same time, seemingly every NBA beat guy began reporting that talks on… » 12/18/14 8:58am Today 8:58am

Monta Ellis's Game-Winning Buzzer-Beater Was Bananas

I think it's time to admit that there probably isn't another player in the NBA who is better at hitting reckless, off-balance buzzer-beaters than Monta Ellis.

Mavs Beat Spurs On Vince Carter's Three-Point Buzzer-Beater

The Mavericks beat the Spurs 109-108 on a Vince Carter three-pointer at the buzzer. Down 108-106, Carter got the ball off the inbounds with 1.7 seconds left, pump-faked Manu Ginobili into the stratosphere, and drained a three from the corner as time expired. The play was reviewed and upheld, and the Mavs now lead the… » 4/26/14 7:24pm 4/26/14 7:24pm

Dirk Nowitzki Gives Conan O'Brien A "Texas Citizenship Test"

Conan O'Brien is taping his show in Dallas this week, and last night he invited Dirk Nowitzki onto the show to test just how much of a Texan Conan really is. It's a pretty funny bit, but mostly it's just a reminder that Dirk is awesome and that the NBA will be a much worse and humorless place when "The Berlin Tall"… » 4/01/14 10:57am 4/01/14 10:57am
