Charlotte Hornets Agree to 4-Year Extension with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Charlotte Hornets Agree to 4-Year Extension with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is worth more than Kemba Walker. Sort of. The Charlotte Hornets took care of their impending restricted free agent point guard ahead of last season, electing to lock him up on a four-year, $48 million extension rather than allowing him to test the semi-open waters.

Fan Follows Steph Curry For 30 Miles Seeking Autograph

Fan Follows Steph Curry For 30 Miles Seeking Autograph

Fan is short for fanatic and we sometimes lose sight of that. The NBA boasts the league with the most recognizable individual players, and that’s not really arguable. This can be good and bad, however. In the case of Steph Curry, this was less than desirable, as a car apparently followed him and his family [...]

Kobe Bryant Wants to Play for Team USA at 2016 Olympics

This is so going to happen. Team USA held its usual scrimmage on Thursday night, which went off without a hitch. No one was injured. Every participant walked away healthy, proving, once again, that Paul George’s broken leg in 2014, while tragic, was a freak anomaly. But that’s not why we’re here. Nor are we [...]
