  • Lakers play defense with hands behind their backs because they were sick of being called for fouls

    The Los Angeles Lakers may have figured out a way to avoid fouls. LeBron James said it was the team’s way of making sure Chris Paul and James Harden couldn’t draw fouls, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “Just trying to defend without fouling,” said James, who briefly locked his hands behind his body on a Rockets possession in the third quarter.

  • Harden's 50-point triple-double leads Rockets over Lakers

    The Houston Rockets were clinging to a lead over the Los Angeles Lakers in the fourth quarter on Thursday night when James Harden told coach Mike D'Antoni he needed to come out for a bit to rest - something the reigning MVP never does. D'Antoni was perfectly happy to fulfill Harden's request, and the move could not have worked better for the Rockets.

  • Lakers have some assets to move as NBA early-trade window approaches

    When a team signs a free agent it is not allowed to trade that player for the period of time that is greater between three months or the arrival of Dec. 15. This is because the NBA and the players association do not want teams to sign players and immediately trade them if they later feel they made a mistake. Even though this season has already seen three trades, from the Jimmy Butler blockbuster to the Cavaliers selling off veterans, trade action really picks up when the no-trade restriction ends on Dec. 15.

  • James Harden backs up outrageous outfit, sets NBA record with 4th career 50-point triple double

    James Harden gave LeBron James a shoutout with a ridiculous snake-print shorts suit prior to Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Houston Rockets guard then proceeded to give James and the Lakers more than they could handle on the court in a 126-111 win. Harden backs up swag with big night on court Harden tallied 50 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds on a night that he outdueled James and a hot Kyle Kuzma in a tight game that Houston pulled away late to win.

  • Three Things to Know: Who’s your MVP? James Harden drops 50-point triple-double on Lakers

    It’s early in the season, but the narratives for the race for MVP are taking shape, and right now LeBron James — having a season similar in many ways to the ones he had recently in Cleveland, just now doing it in a much brighter spotlight — is near the top of a lot of lists, with a compelling narrative around him that he has turned around the worst run of Lakers’ basketball in franchise history. If the vote were taken today Giannis Antetokounmpo would win, but LeBron would be in the mix… just my sense talking to other voters and what one straw poll found.

  • Paul hails 'sick' Harden after record-breaking display

    Chris Paul was left wide-eyed after James Harden delivered a masterclass to help the Houston Rockets beat the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday. Harden got the better of LeBron James, becoming the first player in NBA history to produce four triple-doubles with 50 points or more, as the Rockets recorded a much-needed 126-111 victory. Paul told ESPN: "That's crazy.

  • Rockets attempt to slow down Lakers

    Somewhat reticent to commit long term to the lineup alteration initiated on Tuesday, Houston Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni was provided every reason to stick to the changes moving forward after an unexpectedly effective performance from a beleaguered bench. The Rockets (12-14) had three reserves score in double figures on Tuesday in their 111-104 win over the Portland Trail Blazers, the first time for that achievement this season. D'Antoni ran the risk of further hamstringing his bench when he inserted guard Eric Gordon into the starting lineup in place of forward James Ennis.

  • James Harden pays homage to LeBron James' infamous shorts suit with his own outlandish version

    Houston Rockets guard James Harden has a lot of admiration for Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. Either that, or Harden decided to have some fun at James’ expense prior to Thursday’s game. Harden did his best James impression by showing up to the game wearing a matching suit coat with shorts.

  • Is NBA Star Donovan Mitchell Getting His Own Adidas Signature Shoe?

    Utah Jazz baller Donovan Mitchell had a stellar rookie campaign last season and has spent this year dominating opponents on the hardwood. Does that warrant a signature basketball shoe from Adidas? Through 29 games this season, Mitchell is averaging 20.8 points, 3.2 assists and 3 rebounds per game.
