Having a starting lineup of LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Stephen Curry is more than enough to dominate most teams in the world. For former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins, though, Team USA’s bench unit is equally problematic for opposing squads facing them in the 2024 Olympics. Team USA’s exhibition victory over Canada showcased their depth and potential for the upcoming Olympics. Anthony Edwards and Anthony Davis led the way, highlighting their importance to the squad. Despite facing a strong Canadian roster led by Jamal Murray and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the American team prevailed with a score of 86-72. The win demonstrated…

Unlike his time playing for the Charlotte Hornets and Golden State Warriors, former NBA star Baron Davis’ stint with the Los Angeles Clippers isn’t exactly memorable. Now, the point guard recounted his experience with the team and called it a bad soap opera in prison. Davis enjoyed a successful 13-year career after being drafted third overall by the Hornets in 1999. He spent his first three seasons in Charlotte, making his first All-Star team in 2002. Davis then played for the New Orleans Hornets from 2002-2005, leading the league in steals in 2004 and earning All-NBA Third Team honors that…

For the longest time, everyone saw the Minnesota Timberwolves as one of the most disappointing franchises in the NBA. But after All-Star guard Anthony Edwards, former number one pick Karl-Anthony Towns, and current Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert led the roster to a Western Conference Finals appearance, there’s a lot of promise waiting in the future. To make sure that happens, the team will get a new general manager in Matt Lloyd. Lloyd has been a fixture in the Minnesota Timberwolves’ front office for the past two seasons, and his contributions have now been recognized with a well-deserved…

After failing to extend All-Star wing Jimmy Butler’s contract during the offseason, the Miami Heat may be in danger of losing him without getting anything in return. That potential scenario can happen next year, much to the detriment of the Pat Riley and everyone in the front office. Butler joined the Heat in 2019 and has made a significant impact on the team. In his first season with the Heat, Butler led the team to the 2020 NBA Finals, where they ultimately fell to the LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. Butler’s leadership and two-way play were instrumental in…

Although the Denver Nuggets didn’t get the chance to go for a second consecutive ring last season, head coach Michael Malone is still a winner off the court. Proof of that was when he and his wife purchased a beautiful highlands ranch house worth $7 million recently. Malone’s coaching career began in the college ranks, where he held assistant coaching positions at Friends School of Baltimore, Oakland University, Providence College, and the University of Virginia. Malone’s NBA coaching career started in 2001 when he joined the New York Knicks as a coaching associate, before being promoted to assistant coach in…

Although this is the first Olympics for All-Star guard Stephen Curry, it seems like the Golden State Warriors’ franchise player is made for the global stage. This is backed up by Team USA stars Anthony Edwards and Anthony Davis amid his run with the national squad. Curry, who had missed previous opportunities to participate in the Olympics, cited his admiration for his fellow competitors and teammates who had won gold medals in previous games as a driving force behind his decision to join Team USA. With the official roster for the Paris Olympics finalized, Curry will get to play with…

All things considered, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James’ longevity in the NBA is legendary in its own right. That’s why former Boston Celtics champion Kevin Garnett dropped the possibility that the King can play for 10 more years if he changes the way he plays his game. At the core of James’ longevity is his commitment to a meticulous, data-driven approach to his health and training. He closely monitors his body’s recovery, nutrition, and sleep patterns, constantly making adjustments to optimize his performance. James emphasizes the importance of listening to his body and making proactive decisions, rather than pushing…

It’s no secret Miami Heat big man Bam Adebayo has been consistently good on defense for quite some time now. The thing is, the Team USA star is getting annoyed about being constantly snubbed to win the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year. Adebayo was selected 14th overall by the Heat in the 2017 NBA Draft after playing one season at the University of Kentucky. As a rookie, he came off the bench, averaging 6.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game. In the 2018-19 season, Adebayo’s role increased, and he started 73 games, averaging 8.9 points, 7.3 rebounds,…

For several years now, two-time NBA champion Kawhi Leonard has continually missed a lot of time due to injuries. The latest, though, has forced the Los Angeles Clippers to back out from Team USA, causing sports analyst Stephen A. Smith to get pissed at him. Just recently, Team USA announced that Leonard will be withdrawing from the 2024 Olympic Games squad. The former San Antonio Spurs star had been participating in practices with the team in Las Vegas, but USA Basketball and the Clippers determined it would be in his best interest to skip the Olympics. Boston Celtics’ Derrick White…

As some fans expected, Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard backed out from the Olympics to prepare for the upcoming season. While there was a positive reaction for Derrick White replacing the two-time champion, former NBA big man Dwight Howard was shocked it wasn’t another star playing for the Boston Celtics who was picked. Leonard has recently withdrawn from the 2024 Olympic men’s basketball team due to lingering injuries sustained last season. In his place, the Celtics’ Derrick White will replace him in the roster. USA Basketball announced that while Leonard had been ramping up his preparations and had some…
