Before this season, Derrick Rose had missed all but ten of the previous 164 regular season games the Chicago Bulls have played, dating back to the beginning of the 2012-13 season — just months after his 2011-12 season ended due to an ACL injury.
We’re nearly one month into the NBA season, and teams not named the Oklahoma City Thunder are beginning to settle into their place in the league’s pecking order. Let’s get to some of the highlights and lowlights of the past week.
Last week, Hulk Hogan was spotted flexing on the sideline of the Cleveland Cavaliers-San Antonio Spurs game, getting the Cavs fans hyped for what was an eventual loss to the defending champions.
The hottest NBA compilation of last season was an eleven-minute tribute to James Harden, in which the Houston Rockets guard was seen acting rather lackadaisical on the defensive side of the ball.
Aww, that’s cute. While a three-pointer (from anyone) would have helped the 76ers’ cause Monday night, it still wouldn’t have been enough, as they lost 114-104 to the Portland Trailblazers. On the bright side, Philly fans get to enjoy some half-off Papa John’s pizza. Speaking of three-point shots, the Blazers had no problems finding their
Trick shot crew Dude Perfect stopped by the Seattle Seahawks’ practice facility (and CenturyLink Field) earlier this season to toss footballs around — and at each other — with quarterback Russell Wilson and head coach Pete Carroll. Turns out Wilson can throw the ball quite accurately (even if he’s been a little off this season),
Poor Evan Turner. Late in the third quarter of the Portland Trailblazers’ 94-88 win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday, the journeyman guard found himself defending Steve Blake — a 34-year-old fellow journeyman guard — on the left wing. Although, we’re not really sure we can call it “defending” because Blake made him look silly
Because there is no God, the tanking Philadelphia 76ers still have 69 games left to play in this terrible, horrible, no good, very bad NBA season.
Clearly, the Chicago Bulls were not content with the Oklahoma City Thunder snatching the title of “Most-Injured Team” in this young NBA season.
Just when you thought the Lakers had turned the corner — thanks in all parts to the return of Swaggy P, of course — and appeared to remove themselves from the discussion for worst team in the NBA, they ran into the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night. And by “ran into”, I mean they got
The Oklahoma City Thunder lost again Friday night. It was another winnable game, against a team (Brooklyn Nets) that, if the season ended today, wouldn’t even be in the EASTERN Conference playoffs. The Thunder led for most of the game, but then did what they do when they don’t have Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook:
The latest national crisis involving Derrick Rose surfaced last night when it appeared the sidelined Bulls guard casually snatched a jersey — a Derrick Rose jersey — from some little kid sitting court side at the Kings-Bulls game. I’ll ignore — for a moment — the fact I hate this kid (because I hate all
