TDS Mailbag: The Return of Red Nation Radio

Yes, it's back. Now what shall we talk about? With the blight that was Voldemort blasting us all in the ass with his Avada Kedavra over the outstretched arm of that Chach Douche who will remain nameless out of our memories, we can finally turn the page and talk about a new season of Houston Rockets basketball. This is both good and bad because it means a new season of Jeremy Lin-free basketball as well as the return of Red Nation Radio. And unlike Jeremy, Daryl Morey can't trade away the likes of BD, The Doctor and myself for future draft considerations. At least I don't think so. Things...

All in for game 1?: Humphries hopes to return for the Wizards season opener

After injuring his hand in the preseason opener against the Bulls, Kris Humphries is working to rejoin the Wizards in time for their opening night game against the Heat. The Wizards frontcourt rotation for the season opener against Miami was looking pretty thin.  After a summer of building depth down low through acquiring and retaining big men, suspensions and injuries threatened to leave the Wizards with a frontline of just Marcin Gortat, Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin for their first game.  Help may be on the way, however, as injured forward Kris Humphries is aiming to get himself...

The Daily Clipper — Blake Griffin's A Slapper, Not a Flopper

Just when we thought this preseason couldn't get any worse... what's next, someone comes out with a compromising tape of our longtime beloved owner? After losing Saturday evening to the Nuggets at Mandalay Bay, the Clippers decided to go out on the town. Their excursion featured Big Baby singing his theme song and more rookie hazing for C.J. Wilcox, among other antics. Today we learned those 'other antics' might not be as innocent as the name suggests. TMZ broke a story today about Blake Griffin being investigated on a battery charge stemming from a nightclub incident: Here's what we know...

Did the Suns commit to the Morris Bros too soon?

The Suns' frontline is at once too thin and overcrowded at the moment. Signing the Morris twins to four-year contract extensions a full season early might only compound the situation. As the Phoenix Suns near the regular season opener, any 2014-15 preview, reputable or otherwise, seems to carry a common theme. The backcourt is gravy -- possibly too much gravy -- but the frontcourt is frighteningly thin and full of question marks. How curious it is, then, that the Suns decided to forgo the last season of the Morris twins' contracts and plunk $52 million on extending them for four more years,...

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert on verge of breakout season according to NBA General Managers survey

Gobert news and more! NBA.com's John Schuhmann released the details from the 2014-2015 NBA General Manager's survey! Be Excited! Now, I don't know which intern of which front office filled out each survey, but we are led to believe that this is how GM's actually think. (By the way, for those of you keeping score at home, it's the GMs of some teams who give bad players great contracts who are to blame for the last two lock outs. Not the players.) So these geniuses were at it again, and among the most obvious answers (like how LeBron James causes opposing coaches to make the most...

Wiggins Sits Outs, But(t) Anthony Bennett Struts His Stuff

Andrew Wiggins took the night off as a precautionary measure. Meanwhile, Anthony Bennett continued to show signs of hope entering his sophomore campaign. The Pacers and Timberwolves squared off for the second time this preseason last night, this time at the Target Center instead of Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Earlier this preseason, Andrew Wiggins gave Solomon Hill the business. He swatted three of his shots (shots?) and made the second-year pro look overmatched all night, as I wrote here. Wiggins, however, wasn't able to do the same on Tuesday night. The #1 overall pick didn't play because...

Why the NBA's draft lottery reform was turned down

Why the NBA's draft lottery reform was turned down

The league voted against a proposal to reform the draft lottery. While change can be a good thing, there are several reasons teams may have been against it. How does the NBA deal with the issue of tanking? Shameful, often agonizing tanking - much like what we saw last season from several teams racing to the bottom to secure more pingpong balls in anticipation of a loaded draft class. A strategy that can force even the most devoted fan bases to openly root against their own team as they cling to a sliver of hope that it will brighten the team's future. The league tried to find a solution...

Memphis Grizzlies waive Earl Clark, Hassan Whiteside, roster down to 16

Via press release, the Memphis Grizzlies have officially announced the releases of forward Earl Clark and center Hassan Whiteside. Both signed in the off-season to training camp deals, Clark and Whiteside -- along with several others -- were brought in compete for the Grizzlies final roster spot. With the release of Michael Beasley earlier in the preseason, there was some optimism surrounding Earl Clark's chances to make the final roster, fitting considering his abilities to act as a stretch four. Appearing in four preseason games, Clark averaged 5.25 points on 47 percent shooting, 2.7...

Jared Sullinger’s offense now awaits the real season

The blessing, and maybe also the curse, of having a coach for a father is an ever-running font of advice.And when Jared Sullinger struggled last year, or displayed body language that his father Satch didn’t particularly like, the result was an instant clinic.“Last year, I watched a lot of film with my father and he showed me a lot of clips of what I can do off the dribble,” the Celtics forward said of how he can respond now that opponents respect him as a 3-point shooter, and will actually try to close out hard when he squares up beyond the arc.
