  My mom is fond of always reminding me that “nothing is free in life.” For athletic NBA guards who build their careers on visciously attacking the basket, this statement couldn’t be more true.   Russell Westbrook may have torn his right meniscus during Game 2 on Wednesday night, but it wasn’t just from any one...

It’s now or never for John Wall

  Players aren’t the only things that fly in the NBA…..so does time. Can you believe that John Wall is already entering his third season? I know guys in this era play close to 20 years but, still, John’s already worn two different uniforms for the Washington Wizards. When I look at Wall, I see the explosiveness of a Derrick Rose mixed with the wiry craftiness around...
