    Bryan Curtis

    When Charles Barkley sank his teeth into analytics this month on Inside the NBA, you could almost hear the whole Internet groan. "I've always believed analytics were crap," he said, later adding, "They're just some crap ...

  4. Embrace the Dark Side: How the Rockets Became the New Bad Boys

    Jason Concepcion

    I find the Rockets extremely annoying to watch. In their slavish devotion to Moreyball -- which I have in the past described as "if card counting were a spectator sport" -- they have become the most predictable offense in the NBA....

    Jason Concepcion

    See the Billionaire. He is tanned and thick, he wears a tight-fitting cotton-poly blend, shmedium shirt, a white horse in profile printed across the chest. He stokes the scullery fire and the stove grows hot. His folk come from the steel-mill towns o...

    Zach Lowe

    The NBA has always been about opportunity: When one team's window opens, another's often closes. This year, more than any in recent memory, is all about these windows: superstars in new cities, icons nearing retirement, general manager...

  8. The Best Way to Understand Daryl Morey

    Andrew Sharp

    The best way to understand Daryl Morey is think of Chris Paul at the end of playoff games. There's nobody more relentless, and nobody more devious, nobody with more stubborn dedication to defy the limits that apply to everybody else. Every angle...

  10. The Amazing Pace

    Jason Schwartz

    Grantland really likes NBA basketball. We like it so much that bingeing on LeBron James off-the-wall dunks and Marcin Gortat "Dream Shake" Vines sometimes doesn't cut it. We need more. That brings us to D-League Week, an examination of...

    Zach Lowe

    Ricky Ledo's contract negotiations were going badly. Which sounds a little ridiculous. The Mavs selected Ledo with the 43rd pick in the draft, meaning he was a second-rounder with very little leverage and almost certainly no place else to go if he wi...

    Ben Detrick

    For basketball dweebs, the last few weeks have been Morey-palooza. Eat Morey. Sleep Morey. Listen to Morey-house Morey-wave Morey-trap. Find a remote island, call it New Mauritania, and govern by conch-shell possession and small-sample-size offensive...

  16. CourtVision: The James HardenKevin Martin Shot-Chart Comparison

    Kirk Goldsberry

    James Harden plays basketball like a video game character: all 3s, dunks, and layups. About 87 percent of his shots come from either near the rim or beyond the 3-point arc. He's great in both areas, but make no mistake — it's his ability to cre...
