A token of J.R. Smith’s eternal shame is up for sale on the NBA’s auction site. “He played 38 minutes and registered 10 points with 2 assists and 6 rebounds,” reads the very charitable caption. In some sense, this is the greatest piece of LeBron James memorabilia that money could buy.

   

The Sacramento Kings are going to find a way to waste the second overall pick on Thursday.

The Kings Are Going To Screw This Up Somehow The Kings Are Going To Screw This Up Somehow

Any and all pre-draft player prognostication must come with the caveat that no one actually knows anything, at this point. DeAndre Ayton might turn out to be Michael Olowokandi 2.0; Marvin Bagley III could wind up being another Justise Winslow; It’s not impossible that Luka Dončić is in fact Mario Hezonja, operating…

I Regret To Inform You That Mike Bibby Is Now A He-Man Action Figure I Regret To Inform You That Mike Bibby Is Now A He-Man Action Figure

That photo up there of a jacked 40-year-old Mike Bibby comes via the Sacramento Kings, and it is extremely disturbing!

Michael Wilbon: LeBron Should Play For The Wizards So He Can Be Like Jeff Bezos Michael Wilbon: LeBron Should Play For The Wizards So He Can Be Like Jeff Bezos

Michael Wilbon, a grumbly shithead who’s spent the better part of this millennium actively torching his own hard-won relevance, has now weighed in on LeBron James’s impending free agency.

It Seems Like Draymond Green Truly Dislikes Tristan Thompson It Seems Like Draymond Green Truly Dislikes Tristan Thompson

It is not uncommon to see two NBA players who just spent a game or even an entire series scrapping and talking wild shit to each other suddenly shaking hands and hugging once the buzzer goes off.
