  • Kyrie Irving and the Most Famous Trade Requests in Sports History

    Kyrie Irving shocked the sports world when he asked the Cavaliers to trade him in July. After all, it seemed Irving had the perfect situation: His team had reached three consecutive finals, he played alongside the best player in the league who is known for his unselfishness, and Irving did not have to defer to LeBron during crunch time. James would often defer to Irving when the Cavs needed a bucket, most famously when Irving hit the game-winning three-pointer in the 2016 NBA finals.

  • Thon Maker Becomes Internet Hero After Giving Up Seat on Airplane

    It seems Thon Maker, like many people of late, got screwed by United Airlines this week. Unlike many people, however, Thon Maker is seven feet tall. In another weird twist, Maker ended up sitting next to a guy who said on Facebook that he’s a distant cousin of Lakers rookie Kyle Kuzma.

  • LeBron James didn't kill idea he could land with Knicks

    LeBron James didn't kill the idea that he could look toward the Knicks as a possible destination if he were to become a free agent next season. In an interview with TMZ, the Cavs forward didn't have a response to comments that Clippers' F Blake Griffin said about James going to New York before L.A. "I don't even know what you're talking about, shawty," James said. Griffin told the "Views from the Cheap Seats" podcast that he could see James coming to New York rather than joining Los Angeles, which had been a rumored destination for the forward.  "I could see him going to New York before L.A.," Griffin said. "I still think, when you go to the Garden, it's a completely different feeling. The energy,

  • Lakers owner on Lonzo Ball: “He’s going to bring an element that’s very similar to Magic”

    Lonzo Ball has yet to play a minute of professional basketball in the NBA, but fans in Los Angeles sure are happy to have him on board as they get ready for a new era in team history. An exciting run through the Las Vegas Summer League in 2017 certainly showed us that Ball is ready to meet the challenges of a rookie in the NBA. Ball and teammate Kyle Kuzma also helped the Lakers beat the Portland Trail Blazers in the championship game to close the tournament.

  • Kobe is the Lakers’ all-time leader in steals

    In a video posted to YouTube by Complex on Saturday, rookies tried to answer questions similar to the one Ball pondered over, like what team drafted their head coach, who the NBA all-time leading scorer is, and what day the first game of the season starts on. A lot of the responses were pretty funny, including the guys getting wrong what year Adam Silver became NBA commissioner. Poor David Stern has already been forgotten about!
