Tatum generally seems to receive the edge because he’s the more polished player between the two. But Brown showed a lot last year by recovering from his slow start to...

Up until recently, Caris LeVert was set to be one of the more desirable names in an underwhelming 2020 NBA free agency class. But the Nets didn’t want to take any chances with him on the open market, so they came to terms on a three-year extension worth $52.5 million, according to ESPN ’s Adrian...

Derrick White didn’t exactly play much for Team USA in Thursday’s game against Australia, and the game was essentially over when he entered in the fourth quarter. But the Spurs guard still played. The same cannot be said for Marcus Smart, who was the only member of Team USA who didn’t get in the...

As is the case with most NBA players, the first thing that comes to mind when examining Kemba Walker’s game is what he does on the offensive end. It’s why he makes as much money as he does and why he was a good fit to fill Kyrie Irving’s shoes. But his defense is still somewhat of an unknown...

As much as Kyrie Irving appeared to be the primary problem throughout the Celtics’ disappointing 2018-19, there were instances where it seemed other players weren’t helping the situation.

The Celtics made several significant adjustments to their roster this offseason, and are a much younger team than in years past. However, 2019 first-round pick Grant Williams doesn’t think that means the team should be counted out. "I feel like we're (an) underestimated, underrated team because we...
