NBA Trade Rumors: At least for now, the Chicago Bulls are not expected to explore moving Zach LaVine. At 10-14, the Chicago Bulls are reaching a point in the season where they have to make some serious decisions regarding their future. At this current pace, they’re not even going to qualify for the Eastern Conference Play-In Tournament. With the way this roster has been constructed, that’s a problem.
The preseason hype has been a lot of hot air. More talk than actual results. Uneven play has reigned. No, we’re not talking about the Knicks. This is in regards to the Eastern Conference, which was supposed to be a monster, but through more than one quarter of the season has been the picture of mediocrity after the very top. Nine teams, from fourth place to 12th, are separated by just two games in the loss column. Only three teams — the Celtics, Bucks and Cavaliers — have winning percentages above .538. The Heat, 76ers and Nets have been major disappointments. There...
After the Columbus Blue Jackets lost 9-4 to the Buffalo Sabres Wednesday night, Adam Proteau writes it's a reminder of the team's struggles this season.
The Philadelphia 76ers have stumbled out of the gates this season. At 12-12, they currently occupy the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference, far removed from the heavy-hitters up top. There’s still plenty of time to turn things around, but it’s starting to feel like Daryl Morey might need to explore the trade market ahead of February trade deadline.

The New York Islanders’ 7-4 loss to the St. Louis Blues was already a tough one to digest and arguably their worst performance of the season, and just when it seemed things couldn’t get worse, defenseman Adam Pelech took a hit into the boards, and his head was the first thing to hit the UBS Arena wall. He left the game looking dazed and didn’t return.
After their embarrassing 113-89 loss to the New York Knicks last night, the Atlanta Hawks have a 13-12 record. That puts them at first in the Southeast Division and fifth in the Eastern Conference. The Hawks are 4-6 in their last ten games and have lost two straight. Trae Young led Atlanta with 19 points in the game. They came into the game last night missing two key pieces for the team, and lost an all-star after he played just three minutes in the game.

TNT analyst Charles Barkley had some harsh words for the Miami Heat. With the Heat on a two-game losing streak, Barkley said the Heat should overhaul the roster. "It might be time to break the team up and start over," Barkley said. "They got some contracts, they're no good. They need to start over. That's my personal opinion. Trade some of these guys to contenders or teams and get us some young guys and start over."

The Dollar Vans idled at the intersection of Flatbush and Atlantic, a long shining line that coursed up and down Brooklyn’s primary arterial Avenue in both directions. The culprit for much of the traffic, just off the Southeast corner, sits the now decade old, rusting, grounded spaceship known as the Barclays Center. It’s catty-corner from an utter failure of foresight and zoning indicative of the entire Brooklyn Nets experience, a Chick-Fil-A and a Shakeshack huddled together on a concrete island between Pacific and 5th, which collectively represents one of- if not the- worst traffic choke points in New York City. An entire lane in front of the two fast food franchises are cordoned off, occupied by a procession of delivery people hailing for every food delivery app, creating a toxic, eternal bottleneck as they wait for their orders, jamming the gypsy cabs, along with trucks, impatient parents ferrying their kids to and from weekend birthday parties and extracurriculars, and commuters trying to get into or out of the borough on an already dark early winter evening.
Kevin Durant reacts to Steve Clifford saying that he reminds him of the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant.
It was just days ago that the New England Revolution confirmed the arrival of teenager Santiago Suarez. There is a second new arrival in Foxborough now, this one being a first team player.

The New York Rangers entered the 2022-23 season with lofty expectations, coming off a trip to the Eastern Conference final, but they have yet to deliver on them. Through 28 games, they are fifth in the Metropolitan Division and do not occupy a playoff spot. On the surface, things look...
