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 [...]

Introducing the new Red’s Army grading formula: The AUERBACH system

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 [...]
