After Just One Season Playing For The Knicks After Just One Season Playing For The Knicks

Poor Enes Kanter. Once so youthful and sturdy, with a shock of the darkest, most luscious hair. Still just 26 years old, and now grey as a heavy November sky. Playing for the Knicks will age even the strongest of us prematurely, I guess.

It Is Time For The Cavaliers To Unleash, Uhh, Jeff Green It Is Time For The Cavaliers To Unleash, Uhh, Jeff Green

Tyronn Lue announced during Cleveland’s Sunday shootaround that Jeff Green will start in place of the injured Kevin Love. This was sort of a foregone conclusion—the only other options on the roster are Rodney Hood and Cedi Osman; Hood hasn’t touched the floor since Game 2, aside from a couple minutes of garbage time…

The Rockets Had A Hell Of A Chance, And Then The Warriors Woke Up The Rockets Had A Hell Of A Chance, And Then The Warriors Woke Up

It feels weird to say this about a team that lost a road playoff game by 29 points, but, man, the Rockets blew it. Or, anyway, that’s the glass-is-half-empty take: Even without Chris Paul, even on the road, even going against an unbelievably loaded Warriors team desperate to stave off elimination, the Rockets had a…

Kevin Love Ruled Out For Game 7 With Concussion Symptoms Kevin Love Ruled Out For Game 7 With Concussion Symptoms

Kevin Love will not play in Game 7 Sunday night after the Cavs placed him in the NBA’s concussion protocol Saturday afternoon, per an update from the team. Love bonked noggins with Jayson Tatum in the first quarter Friday night, and was pulled from the game immediately. The Cavs held off on placing Love in the…

If That Was LeBron's Last Home Game With The Cavs, He Sure Made It Count If That Was LeBron's Last Home Game With The Cavs, He Sure Made It Count

If you thought the Cavs were completely screwed when, down by four points and looking disjointed against an unflustered Celtics defense, they lost Kevin Love to a scary-looking head injury, man you were not alone. Love’s mostly been crap in this series—he’s producing 48 percent true shooting on 26.5 percent usage, and…

Cavaliers Lose Kevin Love In First Quarter With Head Injury

Kevin Love, who has a history of brain injuries in the NBA, left tonight’s Game 6 against the Celtics just five minutes into the game after a collision with Jayson Tatum left him suffering with what looks like yet another head injury.

Chris Paul Is Out For Game 6, And Everything Is Grim Again  Chris Paul Is Out For Game 6, And Everything Is Grim Again 

The verdict is in on Chris Paul, who was hurting a whole lot at the end of the Rockets’ Game 5 win: He’s out for Saturday.

The Most Painful Thing For Chris Paul Is Having To Watch The Most Painful Thing For Chris Paul Is Having To Watch

Chris Paul is, let’s say, a competitive person, probably to an unpleasant degree. He is also among the all-time greats at his position and finally, in his 13th season, making a deep run into the postseason. And he is also someone who, in the final minute of a conference finals Game 5, with a mere four-point lead over…

If The Warriors Are Going To Die, They Should At Least Die Pretty If The Warriors Are Going To Die, They Should At Least Die Pretty

The pre-series nightmare, for anyone who is a Warriors fan or particularly despises the Rockets’ brand of basketball, went something like this: The Warriors, a free-flowing, elegant offensive team that so often makes the experience of watching them feel transcendent, would be outpaced by the cold calculations of the…

The Rockets Have An Answer For The Warriors The Rockets Have An Answer For The Warriors

In a game that saw James Harden go 0-for-11 from three point range, the Houston Rockets didn’t have to reckon with disaster. Instead, they beat the Warriors with defense, winning Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals 98-94 by neutralizing some of the toughest-to-guard players in the NBA.

The NBA Shouldn't Get Credit Just For Not Being The NFL The NBA Shouldn't Get Credit Just For Not Being The NFL

Ahead of his team’s Game 5 matchup with the Rockets tonight, Warriors coach Steve Kerr took time to blast the NFL for its new rule banning players from kneeling during the national anthem. Kerr called the policy, which compels all NFL players to stand for the anthem or stay in the locker room while it’s played,…

A lesson for everyone, taught to this basketball child by Rudy Gobert: Do not, under any circumstances, bring that weak shit, or it will be obliterated.

The NBA Playoffs Have Been So Boring, And Last Night Was A New Low The NBA Playoffs Have Been So Boring, And Last Night Was A New Low

These here NBA Playoffs have been terminally boring. They have been so dull and charmless and forgettable that the one night of actual exciting basketball fans have enjoyed somehow still featured two teams taking 3-0 leads in second-round series. Even Rockets-Warriors, this season’s most anticipated series and de…

It Hurts To Watch The Cavs Like This It Hurts To Watch The Cavs Like This

LeBron James looked exhausted. Jordan Clarkson was tasked with running the offense on far too many possessions. The Celtics’ rotation of hyped-up young dudes absolutely hounded the Cavs to death on defense. Watching the best player in the world trying to keep his team from going down 3-2 in the Eastern Conference…

Milwaukee Police Release Video Of Bucks' Sterling Brown Being Tackled And Tased For No Reason Milwaukee Police Release Video Of Bucks' Sterling Brown Being Tackled And Tased For No Reason

Today the Milwaukee Police Department released the Sterling Brown arrest video, which confirms that Brown was not “combative” as was initially reported. You can find the 30-minute piece of body-cam footage below. One of the cops uses a taser on the Milwaukee Bucks player just after the 8:00 mark.

A People's History Of Bill Simmons Making Up Corny Things For Boston Fans To Chant A People's History Of Bill Simmons Making Up Corny Things For Boston Fans To Chant

There are any number of reasons why it’s easy to goof on Bill Simmons, and all of them are honestly pretty solid. Many of these have to do with the way he acts—grandiose and aggrieved and prickly-petty and, now that he’s ascended to demi-mogul status, prone to dilatory rich-guy extemporizing on The Future Of Apps.…

The Warriors Have Been Infected By Houston's Brain Worms And It's Ruining The West Finals The Warriors Have Been Infected By Houston's Brain Worms And It's Ruining The West Finals

Okay, yes, goddammit yes, I was wrong, the Houston Rockets, who tied the Western Conference Finals at two games apiece last night in Oakland, have a chance to win the series. A frighteningly strong one, if like me you break out in hives at the prospect of a Larry O’Brien trophy consecrating into canonical Championship…

The Rockets Refused To Die And Tied The Series The Rockets Refused To Die And Tied The Series

Despite some early hiccups and, um, premature pronouncements of doom, the Rockets held a 53-46 lead going into halftime in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors. For the most optimistic of Rockets fans, that advantage might’ve been enough to nervously hope for an even series. Everyone else was…
