Bespectacled Paul Pierce pokes some fun at Russ Westbrook

Paul Pierce took a few friendly jabs at Russell Westbrook this weekend, mocking his “we executed” interview from Friday night. John touched on Westbrook’s little tantrum in the Saturday Dump.

Is this the greatest flop ever?

Is this the greatest flop ever?

PJ Hairston was trying to draw a foul against Tony Parker last night. What he ended up drawing was a $5,000 flopping fine and an Oscar nomination.  The flop has already inspired appreciations like this… but the question is… is this the greatest flop of all time?

The dumpster fire in Cleveland is still raging

The dumpster fire in Cleveland is still raging

We poked some fun at the Cavs mediocre record in this morning’s Dump, but there’s nothing funny about the revelations in this column from ESPN’s Brian Windhorst: They see players appearing to run different plays than the bench calls, see assistant coach Tyronne Lue calling timeouts literally behind Blatt’s back during games, and hear Cavs [...]

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Don’t look now but the Pistons are on fire

Why should you care that the Detroit Pistons have won 6 straight games since dumping Josh Smith?
