The NBA’s annual general manager survey revealed the KAT hype train has derailed.
A strange thing has happened with Karl-Anthony Towns.
“You’ll always be a Sonic.”
In a spotlight feature with the The Mercury News, superstar forward Kevin Durant remarks how fans in Portland often tell him this whenever he plays there. He also reveals he keeps a “really big bin” of Sonics gear and memorabilia from his time in Seattle.
The relationship between Luke Walton and LeBron James has started off strong.
Almost immediately after LeBron James signed a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers this summer, there was speculation regarding the future of Luke Walton as head coach of the team.
Walton will be James’ fourth head coach in six years and the seventh in his 15-year career. You can argue the reasons to why that is, but head coaches historically are given a shorter leash with James on the roster.
He knows he’s a better defender than other players who make all-defensive teams, but will anyone else realize it as long as he stays with the Warriors?
Klay Thompson sat down with Stadium’s Shams Charania this week. The big headline out of the interview hovers around Thompson’s declaration that he knows that he’s a better defender than some of the players who have been on the NBA All-Defense teams the last couple of years.
The Raptors have never been more talented after trading for Kawhi Leonard, but they need Kyle Lowry to stay on track and quickly embrace change, which he hasn’t always done.
VANCOUVER — When former Villanova assistant Billy Lange — one of the few men Kyle Lowry has ever trusted — left for a better opportunity, Lowry didn’t speak to him for six years. In Houston, when Lowry’s former coach, Rick Adelman, was replaced by Kevin McHale, he had a hard time adjusting to the latter’s rigidity. Early last year, he struggled to find his way in the Raptors’ revamped, egalitarian offense before getting on board.
If Jimmy Butler's reported trade request last week came as a surprise to you, don't worry, you weren't alone. Even Butler's Timberwolves teammates were apparently caught off guard by his decision. During a recent interview, Taj Gibson, who was teammates with Butler on the Bulls and often works out with him in the offseason, said the news came like a "right hook."
LOS ANGELES: LeBron James warned Los Angeles Lakers fans not to expect an immediate challenge to the dominance of the Golden State Warriors as the NBA superstar addressed the media for the first time here Monday (Tuesday in Manila).
The 33-year-old four-time NBA MVP joined the Lakers in July on a four-year $154 million deal which was sealed just weeks after his Cleveland Cavaliers were beaten by the Warriors for the third time in four years.
Almost all of the 30 teams in the NBA have found themselves in a situation in which they could erase a choice in which management either signed a free agent that did not pan out as hoped or made an agreement with another club to swap players, hoping that a new home would reap benefits. It is easy for fans and media to sit back and critique these moves months or years after they have taken place, but to be honest, there have also been a few doozies that were obvious flops right out of the gate.
Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri has spent several years building the team into one of the league's elite, and it's thanks in large part to his ability of retaining big stars like Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan.
Ujiri was able to prove that the Raptors are capable of keeping and/or landing top-tier players, despite the ongoing theory that NBA superstars don't want to play in Canada. Lowry and DeRozan both re-signed with the Raptors on two different occasions, rather than seek a trade or test free agency.
EVER heard of the apocryphal story of how a frog reacts when dumped into a pot of boiling water vs dumped in a pot of simmering water that is slowly brought to a boil?
This story is often told to demonstrate how change that slowly creeps around us (the simmering water brought to a boil) could catch us unawares and end up turning us into cooked frogs.Read more ...
