Breaking down the DeMarcus Cousins trade, with hindsight

Well, it’s official: DeMarcus Cousins is a Pelican. As is the custom at this time of year, Adrian Wojnarowski (or “Woj” as he’s more commonly known) of The Vertical, broke the news via Twitter, before providing a more detailed breakdown via Yahoo Sports, stating: “New Orleans will send guard Buddy Hield, 2017 first- and second-round picks, and guards Tyreke Evans...

Going Nowhere: Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks

It’s been a(nother) bad couple of weeks for the New York Knicks. The seeds were sown by an article published on fanragsports.com last week, in which Phil Jackson’s buddy Charley Rosen claimed that Carmelo Anthony had “outlived his usefulness in New York”. The article also claimed that as a result of the no-trade clause in his “humongous” contract, Melo would... INSIDE THE POST

Making sense of the Denver Nuggets

If this year’s NBA London game taught us anything, it’s that the future could be bright for the Denver Nuggets. As the first Western Conference team ever to participate in the NBA’s Global Games in London, the young Nuggets caused a huge upset, blowing out the superior Indiana Pacers 140-112. Going into the game the Nuggets held a 13-23 record... INSIDE THE POST

Paul George: the long, hard road back

Going into last night’s game at the O2 Arena, Paul George was the centre of attention. As the only superstar on either roster, George was expected to bring enough razzle, not to mention dazzle, to excite a fervent UK NBA fan base anticipating a thrilling encounter, laden with spectacular dunks and high-quality action. Unfortunately he didn’t quite deliver on the night... INSIDE THE POST

The Orlando Magic may need to go backwards to move forward

This season was meant to be a big one for the Orlando Magic. Heading into the summer break there were rumours of dramatic change, prompted by the appointment of former Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel. Then, on draft night, they flipped promising guard Victor Oladipo to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Serge Ibaka, before signing veterans Bismack... INSIDE THE POST

Western Conference Playoff Preview

Let’s face it, the Western Conference is more cultured, more competitive and more compelling than the East, and it has been for some time now. With one or two teams past their prime, this season hasn’t quite delivered what we’re used to, but still, the Golden State Warriors made history by becoming the first team ever to record 73 wins...

Comfortably zag: don’t trust “The Process”

So, much to the annoyance of Matthew Bates (as demonstrated on the most recent edition of the Double Clutch Podcast) and Philadelphia 76ers fans everywhere, “The Process” is dead. Sam Hinkie’s resignation (which took the form of a 13-page love letter to the organization’s owners) sealed the fate of the tanking-era in Philly, as the franchise looks to stop being...

Hero ball’s dead, long live the OKC Thunder!

A few weeks ago the Oklahoma City Thunder looked truly mediocre. Steph Curry’s 32-foot bomb was one thing, but losses to the Pelicans, the Clippers, the Warriors (again), the Timberwolves and then the Spurs just highlighted the mess they were in. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were doing what they could, but as we all know the fate of this... INSIDE THE POST

Like a Blatt out of Hell/Don’t Look Blatt etc. etc.

In some respects David Blatt’s tenure in Cleveland was doomed from the outset. Hired to oversee the continued development of Kyrie Irving, the sophomore year of troubled former number one overall pick Anthony Bennett and the rookie year of superstar-in-the-making Andrew Wiggins he instead found himself facilitating the return of LeBron James, not to mention the media circus his presence...
