Embiid vs. Drummond Lives Up To The Hype, Kinda

“No disrespect, but he can’t shoot. I just gotta worry about the defensive coverages that we have, they have a lot of down screens, backside action, and he’s always the roller so he gets lots of lobs and stuff.” That is the verbage Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid used to describe Detroit Pistons centerpiece Andre

The finger roll is the new slam dunk

Remember when dunking the ball in the game of basketball was glorified.

Kristaps Porzingis Continues To Dazzle, But Is It Fair To Consider the Knicks “Real” Yet?

You can hook last night’s New York Knicks’ game up to me veins now, please. In what was almost definitely Kristaps Porzingis’ most dominant performance to date, the Knicks toppled the Indiana Pacers 108-101 in a game that featured pretty much everything a Knicks fan could want.

NBA Opening Night Lives Up To Chaotic Offseason

It was an offseason of epic proportions for the NBA, so it only makes sense the league’s opening night was similarly thrilling.
