Could the Heat target Russell Westbrook?

Jacari McRae| July 7th, 2019

The NBA is now more wide open than ever before.

Early Saturday morning, the Los Angeles Clippers signed Kawhi Leonard and pulled off a trade for Paul George In a move to acquire George, the Clippers gave up Shai-Gilgeous Alexander, Danilo Gallinari, four unprotected first rounders, a protected first rounder, plus two pick swaps.

Mike Fanelli | July 6th, 2019

July 5th, 2019 will go down as one of the wildest days for the state of California in history.

Givanni Damico | April 14th, 2019

The West was more competitive than usual. The Blazers had a great season in which they found themselves as the third seed with a record of 53-29. It’s their second straight season as the three seed, but they won four more games this year than they did in the 2017-18 season. The Oklahoma City Thunder won 49 games which placed them sixth in the conference. During the 2017-2018 season, the Thunder won one less game but were fourth in the West. Clearly, the Western Conference teams were even better than usual this season. Here’s what you can expect from each team in this series.

Which Playoff Series Would Provide the Most Intriguing Storylines?

Kit Shepard | February 21st, 2019

With temperatures getting warmer, days getting longer, and All-Star weekend behind us, attention can start to shift towards the Holy Grail of the NBA campaign. Whilst this year’s regular season has been wildly entertaining, and the upcoming free agency is set to be the most dramatic in recent memory, it is the time between mid-April and mid-June that will always be the most exciting period in the basketball calendar. To paraphrase the NBA’s favorite slogan, the postseason is ‘why we watch’.

Introducing Your 2019 Western Conference All-Stars

Josh Elias | February 1st, 2019

As a basketball fan, I’ve always found the NBA All-Star Weekend to be one of the more interesting times of the year. It allows me to watch the top talents of the league play without putting me in a position to seriously root for or against either team. It puts all of the league’s best players in a one-game situation where it’s the best of the best against the best of the best. It immortalizes otherwise-forgotten players such as Jason Kapono and Jeremy Evans through the Three-Point Contest and the Slam Dunk Contest. But perhaps the most important thing it does is recognize, in a semi-official capacity, who the best standout performers in the NBA are in any given season.

In Pursuit of the Elusive Quintuple-Double

Josh Elias | January 14th, 2019

With Russell Westbrook‘s prime and players like Ben Simmons and Giannis Antetokounmpo entering into NBA stardom with the ability to do just about everything – score, pass, rebound, and defend – better than the vast majority of players in the league, it’s no wonder we’ve entered the era of the triple-double to the extent that we have.

Without Melo, the New-Look Thunder Are Poised to Shine

Caleb Mynatt | July 31st, 2018

After Paul George and Carmelo Anthony joined the Thunder via trade last offseason, Oklahoma City fans were ecstatic. Feeling that George would contribute a lot of the scoring they lost when Kevin Durant left, as well as gambling on Carmelo Anthony‘s upside, OKC felt that they could compete for the championship in the 2017-2018 season. The loud and loyal fanbase was prepared to capture the feeling of success they once knew, a feeling they lost when Durant left. But like many teams in the NBA before them, things didn’t exactly work out as they planned.
