The Boston Celtics should be flying high heading into the 2022-23 season. After finishing two wins shy of last year’s championship, they’ve been regarded as the odds-on favorite to win the 2023 title all summer. Now, just as training camp is about to start, they’ve become a team in disarray.  Ime Udoka’s yearlong suspension for […]

Flying in off the top rope, the Cleveland Cavaliers pulled a Donovan Mitchell trade out from under the Knicks on Thursday. Mitchell in Cleveland makes the Cavs a very interesting team, but what does missing out on him mean for the Knicks?  Thursday was also a big day for Collin Sexton, who was sent to […]

The 2022-23 NBA schedule was released on Wednesday (what portion of it wasn’t previously leaked, anyway), and naturally, we’re all running through it circling the matchups that stick out. Here are 10 to mark on your calendar through the first six weeks. 1. Lakers at Warriors (October 18) Opening night. LeBron James will watch Stephen […]

It’s not really accurate anymore to say Stephen Curry is disrespected by his peers or the media or even by random idiots on Twitter. It sure used to be. It look a long time for a lot of people to simply accept, without qualification, his all-time status. But there’s still some residual ridiculousness hanging around. […]

After the New York Knicks struck out on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in the summer of 2019 (which now looks like a blessing), they did well to not commit big long-term money to anyone.

The 2022 NBA free agency period opened Thursday night, and things have gotten wild on the trade front. Rudy Gobert now plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Kevin Durant asked out of Brooklyn. Once he goes, Kyrie Irving will likely follow him. The Celtics landed Malcolm Brogdon from the Pacers. That’s just the start.  Let’s get […]

Kevin Durant has reportedly requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets, and once he goes, Kyrie Irving, who just opted into his $36.5 million player option for the 2022-23 season, could soon follow.  On Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski said on ESPN’s free agency special that it is “very likely that not only Durant but Kyrie played […]

With the No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft on Thursday the Oklahoma City Thunder selected Chet Holmgren, a 7-foot stretch big with guard skills and potentially game-changing defensive ability.  One of college basketball’s most dominant two-way stars during his lone season at Gonzaga, Holmgren joins budding superstar Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and 2021 No. […]

The Golden State Warriors have won the 2022 NBA championship, their fourth title in the past eight years. It would seem like a good time for a breather, but the NBA doesn’t stop these days. The draft is Thursday, June 23, and free agency opens up at 6 p.m. on June 30.  Honestly, it sort […]
