Despite the relative blandness of his Karl Malone-inspired in-game dunks, it’s been established recently that LeBron James can be pretty masterful when it comes to dunking as a way of expression – as evidenced by his recent, stunning throwdown during last week’s pregame warm-ups against the Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron is on record as saying that …

It’s just a tweet, a silly characterization of a person’s mood in 140 characters or less, and possibly something we shouldn’t spend more than three seconds considering before moving on to more weightier matters. Like dunks or draft picks in June, I suppose. Ah, forget that. This is Magic Johnson, possibly the finest point guard …

Some were legends and retired happily, yet there were always those who were on the bench for most of their career and never got to know what it was like to carry the pressure of your whole team, yet were content with their teams and retired respectfully.
Shut the hell up, Michael Jordan. Nobody should be listening to you. You were an amazing basketball player — probably the best ever — but you are showcasing your arrogance and selfishness. We all know that about you by now. So nobody should care that you said you would never have called Larry Bird and …

If anything, my opinion would be that Dwyane Wade is closer than anyone to being the next Michael Jordan. Now you may think I would be crazy that [...]
Never in my life will I claim to know more about the game of basketball than the logo himself, but Jerry West stating that Kobe Bryant is the best Laker ever is a bit much. Now anyone that knows me knows that in the past decade Bryant has surpassed Scottie Pippen and Shaquille O’Neal and my second favorite player of all time (nobody could ever top MJ) but even still I [...]
No Guts reader Keezy W send us his beefs with Slam’s new top 50 list.
Slam Magazine has released their new list of the top 50 Greatest NBA players of all time. The first list was made in 1997 and revised for the first time in 2003 and extended to 75 players. In 2009 it’s back to 50 and while it’s not a bad list, I have a few issue with this list.
3. Bill Russell and 4. Shaquille O’Neal…They may have championships and MVP awards but neither one of these guys deserves to be ranked this high. Kareem was better and more skilled than both of them. Shaq isn’t even the 2nd or 3rd best center of all time, so how can he be the 4th best player?
