Mitchell Robinson should have been added to the Rising Stars game

Mitchell Robinson should have been added to the Rising Stars game

The dunk contest, too The first half of the season didn’t exactly go as planned for the Knicks, but the revelation of Mitchell Robinson and his ridiculous dunking and blocking abilities has provided some semblance of hope for the future, and the NBA should have made him a last minute addition to All-Star Weekend. Before you lambast the idea as ludicrous, remember that back in 2012, less than a week before All-Star Weekend began, the NBA made Jeremy Lin a special addition to the Rising Stars game. Thus, there is precedent. Granted, Robinson may not be quite the international sensation...

The answer arrived Wednesday in the form of Jaylen Adams’ conversion from his Two-Way...

Hawks outlast Lakers in 117-113 victory

A fun one in Atlanta. The Atlanta Hawks entered Tuesday night’s game in the midst of a three-game losing streak and, to put it bluntly, the team didn’t operate at a high level in any of the defeats. On cue, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers arrived for their one and only visit to State Farm Arena this season and, in Atlanta’s first game without Jeremy Lin, the Hawks entered as significant underdogs. 48 minutes later, however, the home team emerged victorious by a final score of 117-113. The Lakers controlled the pace early, using a 7-0 run to take a 14-8 lead. Atlanta’s...
