The Philadelphia 76ers are absolutely wretched and even dogs know it. They had a little bit of fight in them when they had Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes, but not much really. And those guys were traded for second-round picks and open boxes of Playtex maxi pads. So, the...

The Onion has produced a ton of genius content over the years, but this might be my favorite. The concept is brilliant and the execution is flawless. The Los Angeles Clippers may be a really good basketball team these days, but it’s not long ago that they were picking...

Indiana Pacers center Andrew Bynum is out indefinitely. But, unless you really know your basketball, you’ll never guess why. Only close, keen observers of the NBA know that Bynum has been dealing with knee issues for the past umpteenth years. And it seems that those knee issues are flaring...

There are conflicting reports on this right now, but the bad news for New York Knicks guard Raymond Felton is that none of them are good. Regardless, we do know that Felton has been arrested on several felony weapons charges in the second, third and fourth degree. Two of...

The Philadelphia 76ers are doing a great job of stampeding towards the first-overall pick. They have very few players on their roster who are semi-competent at playing basketball, and it shows on the floor. Now, they have one less. Center Spencer Hawes has been shipped to the talent-heavy Cleveland...

We’ve all heard about Andrew Bynum by now. We’ve heard about him not playing for the Philadelphia 76ers all season because of knee issues even though he would be out dancing and bowling. We’ve heard about him signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers and then getting suspended for conduct detrimental...

The Philadelphia 76ers stink. There are no two ways about it. They are the closest thing to an NBA D-League team this side of the Milwaukee Bucks. They are in the “winless for Wiggins” sweepstakes and they know it. So, they’d like to get some sort of future draft...

The last year or so of Andrew Bynum’s life have been pretty interesting. He gets traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Philadelphia 76ers, and everyone in Philly loves him and can’t wait to see him out on the court. Then…he never plays a minute for them. But,...

No real shocker here. The Cleveland Cavaliers were absolutely done with Andrew Bynum. He was suspended from the team indefinitely and there were reports that it was because he got caught sleeping with an assistant coaches wife. One could see how – if true – that could make for...

Well, well, well. Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum didn’t make one single friend during his year in Philadelphia with the 76ers. He didn’t play even a partial minute in a game (or probably even a practice) because of his bad knees and he did dumb stuff like go bowling...

The rumors have been swirling for weeks now in Philadelphia. There has been talk that Philadelphia 76ers Evan Turner and/or Thaddeus Young could be sent packing to another city. Not only does it sound like Young is okay with that, reports are that he’s asking for it specifically. Liberty...

The New York Knicks are not good at basketball. They are 7-16 and would be in the basement of Atlantic Division if not for the truly putrid Philadelphia 76ers. But, the dysfunction runs deeper than just a poor win/loss record. Apparently, after the Knicks lost to the Chicago Bulls...

Kobe Bryant made his long-awaited return to the Lakers on Sunday, his first outing since his Achilles injury last April. Unfortunately, his performance – and that of the Lakers – certainly didn’t live up to the pregame hype. Los Angeles lost 106–94 against the hapless Toronto Raptors, making this...

This would hardly qualify as shocking news if it turns out to be true. Steve Nash of the Los Angeles Lakers is really more of a liability at this point in his career. He’ll be 40-years old in February and he’s breaking down badly. He snapped his leg last...

The Los Angeles Lakers open up their season this coming Tuesday against cross-town rivals (not really…in several senses of the term) the Los Angeles Clippers. But, it looks like they will have to do so without the services of backup center Kobe Bryant. Head coach Mike D’Antoni said recently...

In case you haven’t noticed, Allen Iverson hasn’t played basketball in a while. He hasn’t been in the NBA since 2010, so when you hear about him officially announcing his retirement, your first thought is, ‘didn’t he do that years ago?’ No, he didn’t. Officially anyway. So now, it...

We saw a report on Rotoworld.com that Houston Rockets center Marcus Camby has a torn plantar fascia and could miss “at least another two weeks.” Come again? Torn plantar fascia? At least two weeks? What planet do you live on? Camby is 39-years old and is trying to avoid...

Back in April, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook had some surgery on his knee. And we found out last week that he had some swelling in that knee due to a stitch or something. Today, according to David Aldridge, Westbrook actually underwent some arthroscopic surgery to alleviate that...

Here we go again with Andrew Bynum. I have a message to Cleveland Cavaliers fans: Enjoy Andrew Bynum. Bynum did not play a single lick of basketball last year for the Philadelphia Sixers. Nothing. Not at all. He gave the Sixers absolutely zilch. His balky knees kept him from...

The Boston Celtics have lost a bunch of key players in the past year or so. Ray Allen went to Miami to win another ring. Kevin Garnett is now in Brooklyn with the Nets. Now, they just lost another player to…arrest. Jared Sullinger was arrested on Tuesday on domestic...

This has not been a good offseason for former Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom. We’ve been hearing reports for a while now that Odom has a hardcore drug problem. This latest report from TMZ would support that. According to the gossip site, Odom was arrested early Friday morning for...

In any sport, it’s up to the head coach to set an example for his players. And it looks like Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer is doing just that…if he wants his players to get tuned up and then get behind the wheel of a vehicle. According to the...

We mentioned previously about the alleged drug habit of former Los Angeles Laker and Clipper Lamar Odom. TMZ reported that he’s got a big problem and that it’s tearing his marriage with Khloe Kardashian apart. Well, TMZ also reported that Odom went missing for 72 hours and no one...
