Top 5 returns by NBA players after gruesome injuries

Kyrie Irving played his first game after shattering his knee cap in last season’s Finals Everyone who follows basketball knows that it’s a very intense and demanding sport. The bursts of speed, the lock-ups in the paint and the sheer physicality of playing at a high velocity for even a few minutes are extremely taxing on the body. Add to that the fact that most NBA players are much larger than the average person, and you have a

Honorable mention – Mengke Bateer, the first Chinese player to win a championship (Spurs, 2003) The one common thing that every NBA champion will tell you in the post-win interview is “œThis was a team effort and everybody did their bit. We couldn’™t have done it without each other.” But what they’re really thinking is “œI wish that #@%& gets traded in the next 30 seconds because he

Can the Warriors make it to the New Year undefeated?

Celebrating into the New Year? With each passing game, it seems like the Golden State Warriors will never lose a game. No matter the opponent, they seem to have an answer or scoring ready to go that has allowed them to win 23 straight games to start the season, by over 14 points a game. Last night was no different, as they took on an Indiana Pacers team attempting to replicate the Warriors’ small ball brand of basketball, and the Warr

Unbeaten Warriors: 5 amazing features of Golden State's record-tying 15-game winning streak

As the defending champions headed to Denver on a one game road trip, a lot of people were playing the altitude game but in essence the real threat to the Warriors unbeaten run were the Chicago Bulls who visited the Oracle Arena on Friday night.

End of an era? “How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”. Dr. Seuss summed it up perfectly. My, how the times have changed. It seemed like the men who have defined greatness in this era of the NBA would never see the sun set on their careers. But now, it seems like it’s a matter
