  3. Wingspan and a Prayer: Trying to Decipher the Massive Promise of ...

    Zach Lowe

    Tyson Chandler has improbably become an archetypal NBA player. There have always been dirty-work big men in the NBA -- seven-footers with zero offensive game expected to block shots, rebound, and stay out of the way on offense. Defense comprised almo...

    Jason Concepcion

    The collective bargaining agreement is the DNA of the NBA. It is a vast tangle of rules governing how teams are assembled, how players are retained and moved, and how the monies generated by the game are divided and transferred. At the heart of the C...

    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...

    Chris Ryan

    There are very few NBA players who arrived as such fully formed, ready-to-wear brands as Kyrie Irving. An 11-game career at Duke served as the perfect coming attraction. He seemingly walked off campus in Durham and right into a huge Pepsi&am...

    Brett Koremenos

    With all the hype surround the upcoming NBA draft class, the NCAA tournament has been as much about scouting as it has been about simply enjoying the games. When Kansas lost, we heard as much about what it meant for Andrew Wiggins and Joel E...

  12. What Would an NBA Sweet 16 Look Like?

    Kirk Goldsberry

    The Phoenix Suns are 41-29 and currently a half game out of the Western Conference playoffs. However, they have a better record than all but two teams in the Eastern Conference. They are obviously one of the 16 best teams in the NBA, but there&rs...

    Chris Ryan

    A quick look at last night's NBA action. This game kind of sucked to watch. At one point Jordan Crawford and Lance Stephenson got into it and I thought the world was going to end. This was one of those contests where you feel like -- despite ...

    Danny Chau

    My ears started stinging with about two minutes left in the game. That's around the time when Jordan Adams, who was having a miserable shooting night, drilled a 3 that brought UCLA all the way back to a tie with no. 1 Arizona, 68-68. Ryan Hollins's f...

    Zach Lowe

    Going into Thursday's games, there were four teams in the top 10 in both points scored and allowed per possession — in offense and defense, basically: Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Miami, and the Clippers. It's an artificial cutoff point, but it'...
