Bradley Real Deal Beal Is The Best Shooting Guard In The (East) NBA

Ladies and gentlemen, well gentlemen since there is a 0% chance any women are reading this, it is time to put some respek on his name and call Bradley Beal the best shooting guard in the East. I know that the East is a hot pile of garbage and there may be 4 better shooting guards in the West, but it is a fact nonetheless. John Wall is the heart and soul of the Wizards and when he got hurt, the Wizards were bound to fall apart as they always do without him. The past few games though, Beal has...

Devin Booker Carried Off Court After Apparent Groin Injury

Really bad injury from the looks of it early here. Devin Booker apparently suffered a strained left adductor (whatever that is) in tonight’s 126-113 loss to the Toronto Raptors. The injury comes just a night after Booker scored 46 points to beat the rising 76ers on Monday night.

Derrick Rose Reportedly Returns To Cleveland Cavaliers

After placing himself on a week-and-a-half long exile from the team, Derrick Rose has reportedly returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The absence, starting the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, came as a result of a nagging ankle injury that has limited Rose to only 7 of the 23 games of the season so far. Being arguably the most injury-ridden superstar in NBA history, Rose placed himself on a self-imposed exile to ponder his future in the NBA. Rose is reportedly welcomed back with open arms and will continue to rehab his ankle until he is ready to play. There is currently...

I May Have Been Wrong About Donovan Mitchell

Earlier this year I did an evaluation of the Western Conference’s draft picks from the most recent NBA Draft. Admittedly I was not that impressed with the Utah Jazz, their first pick of Louisville’s Donovan Mitchell in particular. Admittedly I was a little nervous after Mitchell had a pretty solid Summer League, but was not expecting the start that Mitchell has had during his rookie year so far. The peak of Mitchell’s NBA success so far came 2 days ago when he scored a career-high and Utah Jazz rookie record 41 points against New Orleans. Mitchell added 4 assists and...

After showing his discontent with the coaching staff earlier this week, Coach Fiz has been shown the door. The NBA player power rankings have officially been shaken up, with Marc rising all the way to #2, joining LeBron James as the second player to push their coach out of town. This move exposes Memphis’ total desperation to remain as a playoff team in the Western Conference as they ride out the tail ends of...

Last night in a battle between young and rising teams, with the Philadelphia 76ers beating the Los Angeles Lakers 115-109. Joel Embiid went OFF for the Sixers, scoring 46 points while racking up 15 rebounds and 7 assists in the process.

Kyle Kuzma is Better Than Josh Jackson

Last night the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Phoenix Suns 100-93 in Phoenix, with a strong performance from Rookie Kyle Kuzma over 34 minutes factoring in heavily. Kuzma scored 11 and grabbed 6 boards while adding 2 dimes, and has been a major factor ever since moving into the starting lineup for the injured Larry Nance Jr. Kuzma’s season averages are now up to 14.9 and 6.8 boards, which is mighty impressive for a dude picked 27th overall just a few months ago. The Other Rookie wing in this game? That would be Phoenix’s Josh Jackson, who played 18...
