  1. Kobe’s Beautiful Madness: Understanding the Lakers’ A...

    Zach Lowe

    Watching the Lakers right now is honestly unlike anything I can remember in my NBA life. They have transcended basketball and become some meta public art piece that we can all enjoy. Watching them play, and in particular watching Kobe Bryant play...

    Zach Lowe

    Happiness and continuity can carry an extra price in the NBA, and the teams most willing to pay it are often those that have known the deepest misery. Charlotte sunk into depths of misery no one even knew existed, both on the court and in the prof...

  3. NBA Playoffs Winners and Losers, So Far

    Zach Lowe

    The first 72 hours of the NBA playoffs have been wild compared with last season's early chalk-fest. We've had nine competitive games out of 10, crazy finishes, a GM giving an ECW-style promo, massive scoring totals, and lots of other fun st...

  4. The Charlotte Construction Co.

    Zach Lowe

    The so-called "Thunder model" of NBA team-building was never really a discrete, original thing. It had existed before; Oklahoma City was not the first team to bottom out and rebuild around draft picks. And it can only exist as a success if ...

  5. Good-bye to All Cats: Watching Charlotte in the Torture Chamber

    Danny Chau

    Though the transition back to being the Charlotte Hornets in the 2014-15 season is purely superficial, it still leaves this year's Bobcats in a strange situation. On one hand, the best thing the Bobcats can do to usher in this new era is suck. Select...

    Zach Lowe

    Rookie-scale contracts have given teams time to assess talent, but they still have to make bets on very young players, often committing borderline star money to guys who have never worked as anything close to primary options — or who have perha...

  8. The 2012-13 CourtVision Awards: Leading Scorers

    Kirk Goldsberry

    Carmelo Anthony led the NBA in scoring this season, but not everywhere. Every player has their own sweet spots — Shane Battier loves the corners, and Al Jefferson is in love with the left block. After an entire season of play, it's interesting...

  9. Dwight's Flight and What We've Learned From Free Agency So Far

    Zach Lowe

    The madness is nearly over, just like that. Dwight Howard has taken his farts to Houston, finally, and may God have mercy on all our souls. The Lakers are flailing (and should probably join the deepening Tank Pool), the Thunder are still looking for ...

    Zach Lowe

    The Jazz looked dead after a dispiriting road loss to Dallas two Sundays ago, and it's tempting to write them off again after their defense no-showed (or, alternatively, showed up in its usual form) last night against a very enthusiastic Denver team ...

    Zach Lowe

    Utah has a million and one questions. Namely, who's part of its future? Plus: Boogie Cousins problems and the binary reaction to Brandon Knight's posterization.

  13. CourtVision: Big Al Jefferson and the Symmetry of the NBA

    Kirk Goldsberry

    In the time of attack guards, small ball, and stretch 4's, Big Al Jefferson's game is unapologetically old school. He's the kind of post player that was once so ubiquitous in the league, but now seems to be an endangered species. Like Adrian Peterson...
