  4. Danilo Gallinari's 'Shot of the Century'

    Chris Ryan

    Best part about this other than JaVale McGee's reaction (which is not quite this, but pretty close) is how the Nuggets announcers go from calling it the shot of the century, to the shot of the year, to "guessing" it's going to be in the top 20 shots ...

  5. JaVale McGee Is the Special Ingredient

    Chris Ryan

    What's more amazing here? That JaVale McGee already had a 3-point shot celebration in his back pocket? That it's referred to as the "Betty Crocker" on the NBA's YouTube page? How much better it would be if it had been called "The Barefoot Contessa...

    Chris Ryan

    I ride or die for the Sixers. Unfortunately for me, they are currently riding a four-game losing streak that is probably going to kill me. Sometimes, when you are being raked over the coals by the team that has your heart, your mind wanders. And mine...

  8. JaVale! We Take It All Back!

    Chris Ryan

    Just the other day, Denver coach George Karl compared new Nugget JaVale McGee (acquired in a trade with Washington for Nene) to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, saying "I think he plays a little bit like Kareem, but he's a defensive Kareem more than an offensive...

  9. And Then We Came to the End of Blatche and McGee

    Chris Ryan

    First they traded JaVale McGee. And we were sad. Then they shut down Andray Blatche. And we were beside ourselves. Tuesday, just a few days after sending JaVale McGee to Denver, the Washington Wizards announced they were shutting down Andray Blatc...

    Chris Ryan

  12. DeAndre Jordan Won the Super Bowl of Staring Down JaVale McGee's ...

    Chris Ryan

    Apparently. We're going to go a little The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance here and print the legend, because the legend is so good you should make it the new bedtime story that you tell your kids. In fact, I don't even want to know if this is true or n...

  14. Exit Flip: Saunders Reportedly Out as Wizards Coach

    Chris Ryan

    At 8:36 a.m., The Washington Post published a story about Flip Saunders giving the Washington Wizards a day off. That seemed odd because the Wizards got severely punked Monday night by the Sixers. It seemed less odd at about 11:30 a.m., when Yahoo's ...

    Chris Ryan

    You Can't Go Home AgainObviously Thomas Wolfe, writer of the novel from which our little sub-hed borrows its name, never met Kendrick Perkins or Lamar Odom. This is largely due to the fact that he died in 1938. But let's say he had lived to see Perk ...
