  1. Behold: The 4-pointer

    Henry Abbott

    Maybe the greatest basketball quote of all time comes, of course, from Antoine Walker. He was once asked why he shot so many 3s, and he responded "because there are no 4s." At least, that's how it used to be. Consider this press release about t...

  2. The Best Basketball Photo

    Henry Abbott

  9. Tuesday Bullets

    Henry Abbott

    Greatest center of all time. A big ol' ranking that I got to vote on, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar comes out on top. On Chad Ford's podcast I make the case that Bill Russell is the man. If being the greatest winner in team sports history doesn't ...

    Henry Abbott

    Back around Thanksgiving, I put together a list of the ten greatest basketball books of all time. Someone using the name "Lovetron" posted the following comment. Dude! How can you do a list like this and fail to include Rick Telander's "Heaven Is a P...
