Dirk Nowitzki Knee Injury Magnifies His Importance to Dallas Mavericks

Though Dirk Nowitzki has won an MVP award and gone to nine straight All-Star games, you won’t find his name in the conversation for best player in the NBA. LeBron, Kobe, Dwight, Dwyane, Durant — everyone talks about those guys, but Dirk seems to play without too many people noticing. Matter of conjecture, Dirk’s steadiness…Read More

Darko Milicic Scores on His Basket (Video)

If there were any way to perfectly sum up Darko Milicic’s career in 15 seconds, this would be it: Of course the basket didn’t end up hurting his team as Minnesota beat Washington 109-97. Darko actually had 14 and 11 in the game (not sure if they added in his bucket for the Wizards), but…Read More

Derrick Rose Should Be in the Dunk Contest, Not Brandon Jennings

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is listed at 6-foot-3 — not exactly short, but below average by NBA standards. What he lacks in height he more than makes up for with his vertical leap, which is reportedly in the neighborhood of 40 inches. On Monday night against the Pistons, Rose once again showed us…Read More

LeBron James Says He Has Kind of Embraced the Villain Role

As we have seen over the past year or so, LeBron James is incredibly self-conscious and image-concerned. After his ill-advised “Decision” show inspired incredible amounts of hatred, LeBron grew even more sensitive. He said he was taking mental notes on all the people who criticized him over the summer, and he seemed to be genuinely…Read More
