How Kyrie Irving is playing like an All-Star

The 22 year old point guard is having the best season of his career, and that deserves recognition. When the selections for All-Star starters were released on Thursday, it was revealed that John Wall and Kyle Lowry would be starting at the two guard positions. This meant that Kyrie Irving would not be eligible for the Rose Rule bonus to his rookie max extension (unless he wins MVP), and would need to rely on the coaches vote for him to make the team. The two-time All-Star has been enjoying the best season of his career and deserves to be a member of the team. Everybody knows that Kyrie...

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak: The No Bull Review

I've been a Broncos fan a very long time. I've watched Gary Kubiak as a player, a coordinator, and a head coach. I have a lot of mixed feelings on his hiring. This isn't going to be an exhaustive look at everything Gary has done throughout his carrier, but I'll touch on what I've seen from him in the past and what he's been a part of as a way to build some thoughts on pros and cons he'll bring to the organization. Disclaimer: during his time in Houston I did not watch every game he coached, but I did catch his games when I could as I've always been a big fan of Kubiak's. I have mixed...

PORTLAND — The Washington Wizards went into halftime Saturday night at the Moda Center a confident group. Once leading by 14 points, they were up 10 against a top Western Conference contender and they were playing their game.

Game 45: Thunder at Cavs

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER (22-21) at CLEVELAND CAVALIERS (24-20)Quicken Loans Arena3:30 p.m. SundayRadio: WTAM-AM 1100, WMMS-FM 100.7, La Mega-FM 97.7TV: ABC1. This will be the return of Dion Waiters, traded by the Cavs on Jan. 5 in a three-team deal. It brought the Cavs J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert and helped turn around the Cavs season. Waiters was a talented player, but was often times misunderstood. LeBron James said Waiters wore the scapegoat tag very well. The latter always seemed to get blamed for what went wrong with the Cavs. He's being billed as a defensive stopper-type in OKC, which is...

Bucks vs. Spurs Preview: After blowout win, Milwaukee heads to San Antonio

After rolling the Pistons on Saturday, the Bucks are sure to find tougher sledding against one of the Western Conference elite Sunday evening. Last night's 101-86 victory over the Detroit Pistons was a welcome respite for the Milwaukee Bucks, who had been struggling tremendously at home for the better part of a month prior to the blowout win. Milwaukee moved back above .500 with the win and knocked Detroit a game and a half back of the Charlotte Hornets for the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Pistons' bigger loss was revealed after the final buzzer sounded, as reports have...

Atlanta Hawks benefit as the Brooklyn Nets continue to struggle

This is a good time to be an Atlanta Hawks fan. Why? Well, consider this. The Hawks could conceivably go deep into the playoffs and garner a top-10 pick in the upcoming NBA draft. All Hawks fans, say thank you to Billy King and the Brooklyn Nets. As a part of the Joe Johnson trade three years ago, Atlanta has the right to switch first round picks with the Nets. And the Nets of this season are teetering toward awful. With Saturday night’s 108-73 loss to the Utah Jazz, Brooklyn is 18-26 overall...
