  2. NBA Draft Winners and Losers

    Andrew Sharp

    After a solid 12 months of buildup turned into seven days of chaos this past week, the "craziest draft in years" turned out to be pretty sane when it actually got here. No massive upsets at the top of the board. No potential top pick slidin...

  3. Kevin Love Was in Boston This Weekend

    Andrew Sharp

    (Very important photo via @BigDub74) The future of the Celtics was born in a blurry photo at Fenway Park this weekend. Either that, or it was two NBA superstars randomly bumping into each other while the rest of the world daydreamed about the futu...

  7. NBA Mailbag: This Is the End

    Bill Simmons

    I know, I know ...; we're two days late with the weekly NBA bag again. In my defense, my entire life revolves around the free-falling Celtics, Chad Ford's Big Board 8.0 and endless conversations about Wiggins, Ja...

    Jay Caspian Kang

    We have reached the dog days of the betting season. What once was clear, robust conviction has devolved into mushy, degenerate gloop. Let's get on with it. Magic at Cavaliers (+2.5) o/u: 194.5 Doesn't matter the metric or the eye-tester, Cle...

  9. CourtVision: The Jordan Rules

    Kirk Goldsberry

    The early-season success of Jordan Crawford is so peculiar that it's hard to know where to begin. Let's start with this: Fifty-eight players have attempted at least 95 midrange shots, but nobody has made a higher percentage of them than Crawford. Her...

    Zach Lowe

    Boston shocked the NBA landscape twice within a two-week period last summer, first dealing Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn, and then hiring Brad Stevens seemingly out of nowhere as Doc Rivers's replacement. No one seemed to even know Steven...

  13. The Knicks Suck

    Brian Koppelman

    It was 34 degrees in New York City yesterday, but my son Sam and I decided to spend 45 minutes in the cold walking home up 9th Avenue instead of sitting in Madison Square Garden watching the second half of the Knicks/Celtics game. I can't offer Z...
