  3. R.I.P., Brooklyn Knight: 2012-2014

    Zach Lowe

    It has been a trying year for the league's mascot community. It started when the Raptor, one of the three or four best mascots in the league, tore his Achilles performing a trick at a team event. Toronto thought he would miss the whole seas...

  4. Gordon Hayward, Free Agency, and the NBA's Middle Class

    Zach Lowe

    As the world waits on LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, private planes, Vegas meetings, overpriced meals, and mystery pickup games, a few of the league's non-glamour teams are engaging in real and interesting transactions! The headliner is Gordon ...

    Zach Lowe

    Last Thursday was a time of good feelings for the Bucks and Nets. Milwaukee got its man in Jabari Parker, fired from its overloaded quiver of second-round picks, and Giannis Antetokounmpo may or may not have grown another three inches. The Nets unvei...

  7. Avoiding NBA Extinction

    Zach Lowe

    Three more playoff series could end tonight, as we wrap perhaps the greatest first round in NBA history. Here's where each series stands after five games, and what we might see in Game 6 and (please?) Game 7. Neither team can stop the ot...

  8. 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...

  9. NBA Playoffs Preview

    Zach Lowe

    Happy Playoffs Eve! Hug your loved ones, watch a movie (Gravity will still be good on television, right? Right? RIGHT????), and drink some beers, because after tonight, the NBA becomes all-consuming for two long months. Let's get right to it an...

  10. The NBA Mega-List of Things to Like and Dislike

    Zach Lowe

    Every year, dozens of "likes" and "dislikes" fail to make it into a Tuesday column, left to die if they are somehow unique to that particular season. And every year, we try to save at least some of them with a mega-post to showcas...

    Zach Lowe

    The Nets came into last night's Toilet Bowl having allowed 107.5 points per 100 possessions, the very worst mark in the league. They outdid themselves against the struggling Knicks, allowing the equivalent of 130 points per 100 possessions in a game ...

  12. Abolish (Useless) NBA Divisions: Step 1 of a Radical Plan

    Zach Lowe

    The NBA landscape will look much different toward the end of the regular season than it does now, but it's still insane to think about. If the season ended today, the Toronto Raptors, who aren't even sure if they should be trying to win this season, ...

  13. So, How Is Brook Lopez Doing on Defense So Far?

    Zach Lowe

    In previewing the Nets' season, I focused on their lack of a plus defender on the front line, especially on Brook Lopez — his limitations as a defender, his history as a shaky rebounder, and how teams would exploit his tendency to defend the pi...

    Zach Lowe

    Game 4 of a series in any 2-1 state has always been my favorite playoff game. If the trailing team wins and ties things at 2-2, each of the following games obviously takes on its own sort of hyper-drama. But for this moment, at 2-1, a single game det...
