When you continue to embrace a man who reportedly impregnated a 13-year-old when he was in college, and honor that same man regularly by inviting him to marquee league events (like the 2023 All-Star Game) alongside Kareem Abdul Jabbar and LeBron James, it makes it really hard to discipline a current player for allegedly having sex with a minor.

Ball don’t lie: NBA life not what Lonzo and LaMelo thought it would be

The NBA is Ball-less after Lamelo suffered an ankle injury earlier this week that will leave him sidelined for what sounds like at least a few weeks. Shams Charania reports that it’s a sprain of the same ankle Ball fractured last season. As the Charlotte Hornets prepare for life without LaMelo, the Chicago Bulls have been living theirs without big brother Lonzo for nearly two years. Read More

Hey, Jason Kidd: Learn how to take a compliment

Jason Kidd was in a foul mood after the Dallas Mavericks’ 121-115 victory against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. It was the final game of the NBA’s inaugural In-Season Tournament for the Mavericks, since they will not be advancing past the group stage. Them missing out on the knockout round would be a much more legitimate reason for Kidd to be upset than a simple question from ESPN’s Tim MacMahon. Read More


Russell Westbrook has a point about fans crossing the line

When attending an NBA game involving Russell Westbrook, you might want to be careful what words you let slip out of your mouth. Westbrook has never been with the foolishness of fans, but in the past few years, it’s like he’s been on a crusade to confront any fan who crosses him. Westbrook had another incident with a heckler in the stands on Monday and took time out of his busy schedule to acknowledge. Read More


Billy Donovan needs to end this Chicago tragedy and get back to college hoops

One thing that became apparent during the final night of the NBA’s In-Season Tournament Group Stage was that the Chicago Bulls stink.

They got thumped by 27 by the Celtics, who needed every point to advance into the quarterfinals. Bulls Billy Donovan might be a better X’s and O’s tactician than Joe Mazzulla — he’s certainly more accomplished — but it had to be dispiriting to realize this is what it’s come to. Despite the NBA’s attempt to create an NCAA Tournament-level atmosphere in November, Donovan can’t coach this team into contention. Read More


Hate James Harden all you want, but the Clippers are actually good

Some people in this world delight when James Harden is not successful as an NBA basketball player. His iso-heavy style of play is an acquired taste, but so is coffee and yet a Starbucks gift card can win the heart of the average American adult. What really grinds peoples’ gears in regard to Harden is that he always gets his way. Most recently, he called Daryl Morey a liar and got traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Los Angeles Clippers. Read More


Don’t let the In-Season tourney distract you from Orlando and Minnesota

The story of this early NBA season in the In-Season Tournament for no other reason than the league wants to cram it down our throats. However, this is not another diatribe about that mockery of a cup. That’s been done, so allow me to present to you the real stories at the quarter-ish mark of the season: The Orlando Magic and Minnesota Timberwolves. Read More


We’ve seen Klay Thompson overcome the whispers that he’s washed

The Golden State Warriors should be reeling after squandering a 24-point lead against the Sacramento Kings in their NBA In-Season Tournament’s group stage exit. Yet, they’re oddly sanguine about backsliding below .500 since they launched out of the regular season gates to a 6-2 start. Klay Thompson is the most at ease despite being the Warrior with the most reason to worry. Currently, Thompson could attach an annex to the Chase Center compound with all the bricks he’s firing at the rim. Read More


Sorry, Congress, Adam Silver and the NBA aren’t going to stop doing business with China

When the U.S. is at war with China in 20 years, on the list of microaggressions that incited the conflict will surely be NBA-China relations. The Association’s dealings in the People’s Republic of China are so well-documented and lucrative that they created in-roads for its players, who may not realize the complexity that comes with doing business with companies overseen (or run) by the PRC. And if you ever need someone to remind you that making money in foreign countries needs to be on the up-and-up, Congress is that person. Read More
