Six Best Players in the NBA this Season

steph Curry klay Thompson

Every NBA season has its best players, and this season is no different. Everybody who talks about the NBA has, at one point, referred to a great player as a top-10 or top-five guy. That term is safe to use during the season because there’s no official list of the best players currently in the NBA (until the end of the season when the all NBA teams are released).

NBA on Christmas Day: Full Schedule, Storied Tradition

thunder-dancer

It’s a tradition we’ve all come to know and love- the NBA on Christmas Day. 

The NFL has Thanksgiving. College basketball has St. Patrick’s Day. College Football has New Year’s Day, and they’re trying to claim New Year’s Eve as their own, but it’s going over like a lead balloon thus far. Boxing Day (December 26th) belongs to The English Premier League while Yuletide is one with the National Basketball Association.

On Sunday, Dec. 25, ABC and ESPN will combine to present over 13 consecutive hours of NBA action over five games. It’s the NBA on Christmas Day for the 15th consecutive year on ABC/ESPN. They don’t really have to compete with the NFL either. Obviously, the NFL owns Sunday, but this weekend most of their slate is on Saturday, Christmas Eve.

After last year’s disappointing 41-41 season, it looked like the NBA’s Houston Rockets were a team headed in the wrong direction. The drop off in 2015-16 was quite unexpected was quite unexpected after they made it to the 2014-15 Western Conference Finals (where they lost to the Golden State Warriors 4-1).

Phil Jackson smoked marijuana? NO WAY! And it wasn’t medicinal, and instead recreational? YOU DON’T SAY!

The Zen master is totally chill and relaxed, so it makes sense that he smoked the good weed, I mean just look at the featured image here. The New York Knicks President appeared on this week’s episode of We Need to Talk on CBS Sports Network, and he talked about the culture of the sticky icky icky in the NBA.

Here’s what the legend of two extremely iconic franchises, the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers, had to say.

Stick to Sports? Not Anymore, not with the SERIOUS Concerns We Have

colin-kaepernick

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to acknowledge the passing of the phrase “stick to sports.”

It has now passed on into the great abyss.

Of course, to be honest with ourselves, we must first acknowledge

a.) that “stick to sports” only existed as a phrase conveniently leaving off the second, more important, self-defining portion of the expressed sentiment.

b.) that it was impossible for stick to sports to ever really exist in the first place.

The Derrick Rose gang rape case took yet another serious turn this morning. The former Chicago Bulls and current New York Knicks point guard has maintained his innocence throughout this process. On Friday, it came out that Rose received text messages from the alleged victim telling the 2011 NBA MVP that he is the reason she “wakes up horny.”

Derrick Rose Maintains Innocence Regarding Gang Rape Allegations

bulls-derrick-rose

It’s the official start of basketball talking season as most NBA teams held their individual Media Days on Monday. It’s the first Chicago Bulls Media Day without Derrick Rose since 2007, as the point guard was traded to the New York Knicks in June. At the time, many thought the Bulls got fleeced on that deal, but it was still easy to understand why Chicago was looking to part ways with the controversial, injury prone locally produced star.

Exactly one year ago today, the hometown hero pretty much punched his ticket out of town when he made very strange, self-defeating remarks at Chicago Bulls Media Day.

A healthy and fit Thibaut Courtois is of primary importance to Chelsea this season. Well, as the video shows, the Belgian goalkeeper can dunk a basketball, so that counts for something. As the 2016 Chelsea FC summer preseason tour winds down, the club have taken in some rest and relaxation on their off days. Some of the Blues attended a home game of the Minnesota Twins, of Major League Baseball, at Target Field.

Then they had the chance to interact with the MLB players, before meeting up with the Minnesota Vikings at their training facility.
