Thunder Offseason Report | CBS Sports

Young provides his Thunder report for this current offseason. I like the part where Royce refers to Derek Fisher as a 'savvy veteran.' Great code word, there.

The Top 100: Ibaka at 43 | CBS Sports

This spot for Serge Ibaka seems about right, but one notch below Amare Stoudemire? Seriously? Amare couldn't guard a fire extinguisher at this point in his career. Ok, that's a bit of a low blow.

Ranking the Best Point Guards of All Time | Behind the Basket

Magic Johnson is #1 and while I cannot disagree with that, to call Magic just a PG seems to be a disservice. Even though I despise the guy like no other, I'd probably argue that Isiah Thomas is the best 'pure' PG of the lot.

NBA is Full or Horrible Owners | SB Nation

While 'horrible' is a subjective term...are we talking an owner who is without morals or a bad businessman? Zller has all the bases covered here. Yep, Donald Sterling is mentioned.

No Team, No Ticket Sales, Plenty of Cash | NY Times

We've written about the Silna brothers before. Here is a renewed look at the swindle of a lifetime.

As a longtime Knick-hater, this might be one of my favorite career retrospectives ever.

I love this historic deconstructions, which take a numbers-based look at stories we've long held as true gospel.

Throw it down, big man.
