The 7 Who Are Bleeding Money

$151 million Miami Heat. Last Conference Final: 2014. Largest Salary: Chris Bosh ($26,837,720). Freedom: 2020-21, $57 million.

They have entered into…

Ranking The Playoff Desperate

the desperate 1. Minnesota Timberwolves. They haven’t been in the playoffs since George Bush was the Prez and if we’re counting at home that would be 14 seasons without a post-season even with Kevin Garnett and Kevin Love in tow. You know who you are, those who penciled the Wolves in for 50 wins and…

Hate Wins the Fight but Loses The War

The only way the Oklahoma City Thunder were going to beat the Golden State Warriors without a bunch of perfect performances was an epic Westbrook 55, 25 and 17 performance. Anything shy of that was going to be another Warriors win. Russell Westbrook tried his best and actually had a triple double- 47 points, 11…

Why You Are Wrong About the Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder are in a precarious situation this upcoming season with the Kevin Durant departure. Russell Westbrook is the only superstar available, and the frontcourt, specifically the power forward position, is lacking major depth, with Serge Ibaka joining the Orlando Magic lineup via a trade on draft night.

If Green is suspended- the consensus is…

The Worst Missed Call in Playoff History?

It got crazy at the end, crazy enough to make you forget how abysmally boring these playoffs have been. Not in San Antonio. Not on a Monday night. Not after a game one beat down. But of course, if you have been watching NBA basketball long enough you knew the Thunder were going to come…

How do the Thunder Keep Durant? Move the Ball

When his team was in the midst of their greatness, and battling the Celtics for NBA supremacy, Pat Riley would write on the board before every game, No Rebounds, No Rings. It was pretty simplistic as strategies go. If you rebound the ball, you win. If you don’t, you lose. Of course, it was easy…

It’s Almost Midnight for Kevin Durant and the Thunder

Regardless of the hypoxic impressions of the media, most top-5 players don’t leave their team in the prime of their careers. Most stay put. Consequentially, it was always a long shot for Kevin Durant to put his name on the list with LeBron James and Shaquille O’Neal as the only top-5 players in the past…
