D'Angelo Russell is doing good work in pick-and-rolls; notes, stats and more

D'Angelo Russell has looked comfortable operating out of pick-and-rolls. Some interesting findings. D'Angelo Russell is a point guard, which means the pick-and-roll is and will always be his best friend. The Los Angeles Lakers have been starved for talent at this position, a wound they tried to bandage with Steve Nash and are now in transition to handing off to the No. 2 pick out of Ohio State. The Lakers are putting up just 97.5 points per 100 possessions, according to NBA.com, which puts them in the bottom-three of the league through the first stretch of the season. That number drops to...

Jordan Clarkson thinks he's Steve Nash, runs circles around the Magic

Jordan is like the Energizer Bunny. Jordan Clarkson has dished out 4 assists for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Magic, but his most Steve Nash like play might have been this probe through the paint before scoring a layup: Jordan has shown patience tonight with his dribble, and this was eerily reminiscent of how Nash used to "midget" in the paint before scoring or finding a teammate. Just one more trick Clarkson picked up from the former MVP's tutelage last year, and this promising young former second round pick just keeps getting better.

Steph Curry sharpens his game — with help from Steve Nash

Warriors guard Stephen Curry is off to a torrid start this season, even by his lofty standards. Through four games (all victories), Curry leads the NBA in scoring at 37.0 points per game, including his 53-point outburst Saturday night against New Orleans. Curry worked with part-time assistant coach (and former NBA great) Steve Nash at the end of Golden State’s practice in Oakland.

Vancouver Grizzlies nearly traded for Steve Nash in 1998

Instead, they chose to hold onto Bryant Reeves, according to Tommy Stokke of Today's Fastbreak. The Grizzlies franchise existed in Vancouver for only six seasons. Now we know it could of been a lot more. According to Tommy Stokke at Today's Fastbreak, the Grizzlies nearly pulled the trigger on getting Nash twice. The first time was during the 1996 NBA Draft. Vancouver owned the league's third overall pick. They passed on the Canadian national, Santa Clara grad, and instead Nash fell to the Phoenix Suns. The second chance was in 1998, but the Grizzlies were determined to keep Bryant Reeves,...

Game Preview: Phoenix Suns look to beat the odds against motivated Los Angeles Clippers

Despite a few additions, these are still the same Clippers that you have come to know and hate. And the Phoenix Suns will have their hands full trying to prevent and eighth consecutive loss to them.

Center of the Sun, 11/2/15: Where Tyson Chandler has found his role early for the Phoenix Suns

The week that was for the Phoenix Suns, as well as a look ahead. The Phoenix Suns kicked off their 2015/16 season in humiliating fashion, getting squashed at home in front of a sellout crowd by a depleted Dallas Mavericks team. Tyson Chandler found himself in early foul trouble against his twice-former team, and like his teammates, never got comfortable. The Mavericks used their intimate knowledge of the big man to effectively gameplan against his roll game, and the attempts by the Suns' guards to lob the ball inside weren't even close. The only bucket scored by Chandler came on a putback,...

The Madhouse: Week of 11/2/2015

Basketball is back!  Anyone ready to start rosterbating yet?  I think it's a little early yet and these guys haven't gotten on quite the same page yet, so I'm holding off.  But if you've got some wonderful ideas to make this team better, this is the place to share them. In other news... The Arizona Cardinals overcame their buttery fingers to defeat the Cleveland Browns, 34-20. SPECTRE is coming to theaters this week.  Any other James Bond geeks out there? American Pharoah, the first triple crown winner in 37 years, retired after winning the Breeder's Cup Classic.  With 9 wins in 11...
