Well hello there, fellow basketball enthusiast! It’s that time again: Time for the NBA season to have begun literally over two hours ago, when the Celtics and Sixers tipped off in Boston. There could be no better time than this to look ahead to what the 2018-19 season has in store for us, except maybe Christmas.

The Sacramento Kings Are Going To Be Apocalyptically Bad, But Harry Giles Will Be Fun The Sacramento Kings Are Going To Be Apocalyptically Bad, But Harry Giles Will Be Fun

Another season of Sacramento Kings basketball is upon us, and you will not be surprised to learn that Year 13 of the rebuild will be yet another futile one.

As first reported by PhillyVoice reporter Kyle Neubeck, the Philadelphia 76ers issued an apology on Saturday afternoon for some gross tweets made by Mike Muscala’s father Bob.

Report: Pat Riley Called Tom Thibodeau A Motherfucker For Trying To Squeeze Him On A Jimmy Butler Trade Report: Pat Riley Called Tom Thibodeau A Motherfucker For Trying To Squeeze Him On A Jimmy Butler Trade

It’s no secret that Timberwolves coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau does not want to trade the disgruntled Jimmy Butler, since sacrificing short-term success for long-term planning is not in his own best interests. But thanks to ESPN’s Jorge Sedano, we have a really good story about broken-down…

Which Episode Of I Love Lucy Is This Embarrassing NBA Media Slapfight Like? Which Episode Of I Love Lucy Is This Embarrassing NBA Media Slapfight Like?

Have you seen some cryptic and not-so-cryptic tweets and subtweets from some sports bloggers about who invented the special and not-at-all generic idea of comparing NBA teams to TV shows and movies? Are you wondering who first came up with this innovative and original idea that nobody else could have thought of? Would…

Which NBA Team Is Most Like Your Favorite NBA Team? Which NBA Team Is Most Like Your Favorite NBA Team?

It’s almost time for the tip-off of the new basketball season, and you know what that means: It’s time to point out that not only does the NBA exist, but that other things also exist. A few outlets have already beaten us to the punch here, imagining NBA teams as rom-coms or TV shows or fake movies, but nobody has yet…

Trae Young Did A Very Trae Young Thing To Beat The Spurs

Look, I know it’s just preseason, and just a few hours ago I yelled, “You’re all freaks!” at my colleagues because they preferred to watch pointless NBA games tonight instead of a competitive Stanley Cup Final rematch. But this game-winning trey from Trae Young is worth your time, even if you’re a healthy person who…

Report: Adidas Allegedly Funneled Money To Families Of DeAndre Ayton And Dennis Smith Jr. Report: Adidas Allegedly Funneled Money To Families Of DeAndre Ayton And Dennis Smith Jr.

The more reports you read from the ongoing wire fraud case against three Adidas representatives, the more it becomes obvious that the world of basketball recruiting is churning with cash, such that the only reason anyone inside of it could conceivably resist paying college athletes officially is to protect a lot of…

Jimmy Butler Continues Trashing The Timberwolves And Karl-Anthony Towns In Post-Practice Interview Jimmy Butler Continues Trashing The Timberwolves And Karl-Anthony Towns In Post-Practice Interview

The Minnesota Timberwolves are having such a bad day today. It started with Jimmy Butler showing up late to practice, subbing himself into five-on-five scrimmages, and taking a gigantic shit on basically every central figure in the organization—Tom Thibodeau, Scott Layden, Andrew Wiggins, and especially Karl-Anthony…

Report: Jimmy Butler Showed Up At Timberwolves Practice To Humiliate The Stars And Yell At The GM Report: Jimmy Butler Showed Up At Timberwolves Practice To Humiliate The Stars And Yell At The GM

After faltering over the weekend, trade talks between the Timberwolves and Heat are reportedly back in action. Jimmy Butler, the player at the center of those talks who has been conspicuously avoiding his colleagues and who demanded to be shipped out of town by Friday, returned to Minnesota’s practice today. A…

Udonis Haslem Sues Animal Hospital For Denying Him His Rightful Dog Semen Udonis Haslem Sues Animal Hospital For Denying Him His Rightful Dog Semen

Longtime Miami Heat big man Udonis Haslem—present tense, as Haslem is still on the active roster despite averaging less than a point per game in 14 appearances last year—is suing a Florida animal hospital and one of its doctors for castrating his prized show dog, thus denying the three-time NBA champion the…

Good Dog Throws A Mean Alley-Oop Good Dog Throws A Mean Alley-Oop

Max Pearce is an extremely good dunker. He participated in the 2018 College Dunk Contest, where he threw down a memorable and pleasingly violent one-handed self-alley-oop while filming himself with a cell phone in his off hand. The website of Purchase College says Pearce has signed with the Harlem Globetrotters, where…

Detroit Arena To Replace Conspicuously Empty Red Seats With Less Conspicuously Empty Black Seats Detroit Arena To Replace Conspicuously Empty Red Seats With Less Conspicuously Empty Black Seats

Ever since the new, taxpayer-funded home of the Pistons and Red Wings opened in Detroit, people have taken note of the often empty seats surrounding the action. This was especially true during Pistons games last season, when the team consistently found itself playing in front of a sea of vacant red seats. The arena…

Steve Kerr Says "I Don't Want To Be Here," Gets Ejected, Waves Goodbye

The Warriors left Klay Thompson and Draymond Green out of Monday’s preseason game against the Suns. Who cares! No team maybe ever has had any less use for the preseason than the 2018-2019 Golden State Warriors. Steve Kerr knows this. Watch him thank the referees for hitting him with technical fouls for coming onto the…

Chris Bosh's Teeny Son Has Yet To Learn The Way Of The Baller Chris Bosh's Teeny Son Has Yet To Learn The Way Of The Baller

Chris Bosh introduced his adorable children to MSG Network’s Rebecca Haarlow during Monday night’s Wizards-Knicks preseason game. These are some seriously cute children. Haarlow, thinking fast, asked Bosh’s teeny son Jackson whether he will grow up to be a baller. It turns out innocent young Jackson is still…

Fire The Suns Into The Sun Fire The Suns Into The Sun

The Suns fired GM Ryan McDonough on Monday. Firing McDonough makes sense, as he has proven himself to be very bad at building a coherent NBA roster, let alone one capable of winning more games than it loses. Firing him nine days before the start of the regular season is just more flailing absurdity from a basketball…

Kyrie Irving Says He Intends To Re-Sign In Boston Next Summer Kyrie Irving Says He Intends To Re-Sign In Boston Next Summer

Rotten news, Knicks fans: Kyrie Irving told an assembly of Celtics season ticket holders that he plans to return to Boston in free agency in summer 2019. And if you’re clinging to the hope that he was just saying that to ingratiate himself with Celtics diehards, he went into greater detail Friday at practice, saying…
