The Memphis Conundrum

The Memphis Conundrum

Tim Brown – A few weeks ago, a friend asked me what I thought the Western Conference Finals matchup would be this year. I obviously didn’t know any better than anyone else, but I, to everyone’s reasonable surprise, said that the Grizzlies and Thunder would be going head to head for the right to face either Indiana or Miami.

Roundtable: The Wild, Wild West

Roundtable: The Wild, Wild West

The West is stacked. We know that. But, with 20-odd games remaining in the 2013-2014 regular season, we still have no idea how all this madness is going to play out.

We Brits don’t have the best national team when it comes to basketball, so when they play the likes of Spain, it tends to go pretty badly. Last night, it went 100-46 badly. One of the problems is that they don’t have anyone who can slow down Marc Gasol – the reigning defensive player of the year and […]

Tony Wroten drops his defender with a nasty inside-out dribble

Tony Wroten has been doing some nasty things this summer, but this may be his best set of plays yet: First, an ankle breaking inside-out dribble and on the next play, a drive right past the same defender, punctuated by a powerful one hand slam.

Highlights from Josh Selby’s 34 point performance at The Goodman League

At The Goodman League this weekend, Josh Selby did his thing, scoring 34 points in a losing effort to the annual Goodman League team. And, to no surprise, he did it on an array of deep threes, step-back jumpers and acrobatic finishes at the basket. But really, did expect anything else?
