Your Morning Dump… Where Sullinger’s agent wanted a max contract extension

Your Morning Dump… Where Sullinger’s agent wanted a max contract extension

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “We didn’t spend one second discussing an extension for him,” said Sullinger’s representative, the estimable David Falk. “Danny [Ainge] wasn’t in a position to give the [...]

The Eastern Conference Overreaction Post

The Eastern Conference Overreaction Post

Well, with every team in the East having played at least 2 games, it’s time to make some snap judgments about the teams in what is probably the fourth or fifth best conference in professional basketball. Detroit (3-0): Stan van Gundy is on track to win coach-of-the year. Toronto (3-0): Clearly, this team is going [...]

The Grizzlies gave out the worst half-court-shot prize ever

The Grizzlies gave out the worst half-court-shot prize ever

This dude pulled off your dream last night. No, not that one with Hannah Davis. The one where you get picked to take the court at halftime and heave a half court shot. That one where you stand in front of 18,000 people and calmly drain a shot like you’re Steph MF’ing Curry. The one [...]

We should all be happy the Celtics didn’t trade up and draft Joel Embiid

We should all be happy the Celtics didn’t trade up and draft Joel Embiid

Sports Illustrated has a great story on the troubles in Philadelphia, specifically the attitude of 2014 #3 pick Joel Embiid. Turns out, Embiid is flat out ignoring the team’s trainers and conditioning staff: Embiid was determined to go to Vegas to party for the balance of the 10 days of summer league. While Embiid was [...]

Kevin Garnett should do media day forever

Kevin Garnett should do media day forever

Kevin Garnett in front of a microphone is one of life’s great pleasures. The man is a quote machine, especially if he’s in a good mood. The KG/Paul Pierce “Super Man theme music” remains a classic, and there were few post-win interviews that didn’t include some sort of humorous KG moment. Now, at 39 years [...]
