  3. Melo Ball goes back to the future

    Ethan Sherwood Strauss

    There was a time when it didn't look as if Carmelo Anthony would be so sought after at age 30. When he was traded from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks in February 2011, he was the bane of the advanced-stats community, his reputation sliced ...

    Ethan Sherwood Strauss

    Four days after lifting the Larry O'Brien Trophy for the fifth time, Tim Duncan quietly opted in to make a team-friendly $10,361,446 next season. Which reminds us: Wait, Tim Duncan made roughly three times less than Kobe Bryant did last season? How c...

  6. Livingston puts a bounce in Warriors' steps

    Ethan Sherwood Strauss

  7. Sixers' tank machine strikes again

    Ethan Sherwood Strauss

    The Philadelphia 76ers aren't just a part of the NBA draft. They're an agent of chaos within it. Like Heath Ledger's Joker character, they gleefully expose the absurdities of the system while flouting its laws. Last year they blew up their team t...

  8. Getting a grip with Noah Vonleh

    Ethan Sherwood Strauss

    Noah Vonleh is one of the draft's more intriguing prospects. Few saw much of him during his one season with a middling Indiana team, but he measured out impressively and has been rocketing up the draft boards. We caught up with the prospect who, idea...

  10. To make splash, Dubs must break up duo

    Ethan Sherwood Strauss

    Don't be fooled by the "Splash Brothers" nickname. The fraternal moniker makes it seem as though Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry are perfectly complementary, as though theirs is a bond the Golden State Warriors will suffer for losing, that they will ...

  11. San Antonio Spurs' grinding halt

    Ethan Sherwood Strauss

    The San Antonio Spurs are great at exploiting an advantage that was hiding in plain sight. Sometimes it's a simple discovery, like how 3-pointers from the corner are just a bit easier than other shots from behind the arc. Sometimes there's more nuanc...

  12. It's not LeBron, it's the rest of the Heat

    Ethan Sherwood Strauss

    If you're blaming LeBron James, you're missing the point of what the San Antonio Spurs just did. As much as we want to reduce this game down to heroes and legacies, basketball has grown out of the isolation-era 1990s. It's a team sport, and while...

  14. How the Spurs can make stars go dark

    Ethan Sherwood Strauss

    LeBron James could have played better, but even if he had, it likely wouldn't have mattered. Nobody was beating the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night, not on an evening when they scored 71 points on 33 shots in the first half. The Spurs started thei...

  16. LeBron delivers an impressive answer

    Ethan Sherwood Strauss
