LeBron's Fourth MVP Is Pushing Him Into Ludicrous Territory

What Is Sadder Than The Lakers' 72-Year-Old Backcourt? Let's Discuss!

So now, having watched a team led by a 27-year-old superstar beat a team led by a pair of 23-year-old superstars in the NBA Finals, the Lakers have produced their own blueprint for returning to championship form: pairing a 38-year-old former MVP point guard with their 34-year-old former MVP shooting guard.

Raptors Sign Landry Fields Solely To Cockblock The Knicks On Steve Nash

Marc Stein reports that the Raptors have agreed to terms with Knicks RFA guard Landry Fields, at three years for around $20 million. That's exactly the sort of backloaded, poison pill deal we wrote about yesterday—the Knicks have the right to match the offer, but probably not the financial wherewithal.
