Merging New Shooters With The Rest Of The Hive

If the three-point shot is both the present and future of the NBA, the last season's performance beyond the arc by the Charlotte Hornets must have meant they were stuck in the past. The Hornets finished a disappointing 14-15 campaign ranked dead last in three-point field goal percentage (31.8) while also finishing just 24th in attempts per game. You don't have to point to much more...

What number should Mo Williams wear?

The NBA’s July moratorium period ends today, Thursday, July 9. This means that NBA players and teams can officially sign contracts and create binding agreements where previously there had only been handshakes and wink-wink deals.

On Mo Williams, regrets and homecomings

Mo Williams was my first regret. The Cleveland Cavaliers were in the midst of one of the worst single seasons in NBA history and had just allowed Chase Budinger to drop 30 points on them as the Houston Rockets provided Cleveland with its 28th loss in its last 30 games. It was the night of the league’s trade deadline and Williams in street clothes nursing an ankle injury. As I stood...
