Bah Gawd! It's An Al Horford-The Rock People's Elbow Mashup!

After Al Horford’s ejection for dropping The People’s Elbow on Matthew Dellavedova last night, it was only a matter of time before we compiled every angle of Horford’s move and mixed it in with some vintage footage of The Rock. And, yes, there’s the usual presence of “J.R.” Jim Ross in there too. » 5/25/15 11:18am Today 11:18am

My God, The Warriors Are A Sight To Behold

How do you stop this? We could focus on everything the Rockets did wrong—James Harden shooting 3 for 16, Corey Brewer attempting multiple times to take the game over—but that wouldn’t be fair. That would deny the role the Warriors played in forcing those wrong things to happen. Without an ounce of hyperbole, that… » 5/24/15 12:15am Yesterday 12:15am

Report: Kyle Korver Out For The Rest Of The Playoffs With Ankle Injury

Tonight Was The Good Kind Of J.R. Smith Game

Tonight was a J.R. Smith Game. That is a terrifying sentence to read for anybody who has ever been a fan of a team that J.R. Smith played for. A J.R. Smith Game is one in which he does something inexplicably stupid, like elbowing somebody in the head. A J.R. Smith Game is one in which he plays terribly because he was… » 5/21/15 1:28am Thursday 1:28am

76ers Win Right To Trade Somebody For Two Second-Rounders In 2017

Well, it was worth it. At long last, it was worth it. The two forfeited seasons, the lottery picks spent on bum legs, the young players traded for assets, the assets traded for lesser assets, the draft lottery letting the Heat and Lakers keep their picks instead of shipping them to Philly, the TED talks, the… » 5/19/15 10:00pm 5/19/15 10:00pm

Kevin Garnett Once Headbutted A Wall While Watching Making The Band

Kevin Garnett will probably go down as the most charming crazy person in the history of the NBA, and there are plenty of moments in Howard Beck’s massive new oral history on Garnett to support that thesis. Perhaps no Garnett-related anecdote has captured the man’s essence as perfectly as this one, from longtime friend… » 5/19/15 12:18pm 5/19/15 12:18pm
