  1. The Case for Melo to the Hornets

    Michael Pina

    Whatever your views on Carmelo Anthony - as an open wound on defense, cap space-guzzling hangover, or misunderstood, point-scoring virtuoso - it's undeniable that whichever team signs him this summer will be mu...

  3. 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...

  4. The Charlotte Construction Co.

    Zach Lowe

    The so-called "Thunder model" of NBA team-building was never really a discrete, original thing. It had existed before; Oklahoma City was not the first team to bottom out and rebuild around draft picks. And it can only exist as a success if ...

    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...

  8. Good-bye to All Cats: Watching Charlotte in the Torture Chamber

    Danny Chau

    Though the transition back to being the Charlotte Hornets in the 2014-15 season is purely superficial, it still leaves this year's Bobcats in a strange situation. On one hand, the best thing the Bobcats can do to usher in this new era is suck. Select...

    Zach Lowe

    Rookie-scale contracts have given teams time to assess talent, but they still have to make bets on very young players, often committing borderline star money to guys who have never worked as anything close to primary options — or who have perha...

    Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose

    Jalen Rose and Bill Simmons marvel at the damage Michael Jordan has done to his hometown Charlotte Bobcats, ponder the fate of Al Jefferson's gigantic $23,000 bed, and Jalen predicts that Michael Jordan will play one game for the Bobcats. Yes, he is ...

  13. The 2012-13 CourtVision Awards: Leading Scorers

    Kirk Goldsberry

    Carmelo Anthony led the NBA in scoring this season, but not everywhere. Every player has their own sweet spots — Shane Battier loves the corners, and Al Jefferson is in love with the left block. After an entire season of play, it's interesting...

  14. Dwight's Flight and What We've Learned From Free Agency So Far

    Zach Lowe

    The madness is nearly over, just like that. Dwight Howard has taken his farts to Houston, finally, and may God have mercy on all our souls. The Lakers are flailing (and should probably join the deepening Tank Pool), the Thunder are still looking for ...

    Zach Lowe

    The Jazz looked dead after a dispiriting road loss to Dallas two Sundays ago, and it's tempting to write them off again after their defense no-showed (or, alternatively, showed up in its usual form) last night against a very enthusiastic Denver team ...
