Obviously, the guy who thought it was a great idea to throw a pie in Kevin Johnson’s face hadn’t seen these videos. Mr Goodie Two Shoes will definitely whip you worse.

Remember Nikoloz Tskitishvili? Of course you don’t – and that’s just fine with Denver.

Recent seasons have seen quite a few notable rookies posting player efficiency ratings of less than 10. In light of this, the Dunkyard goes right to the top shelf of shittiest rookie seasons from the last 26 years – to see what may lie in store for the likes of Dante Exum and Mario Hezonja.

Is there an Adam Morrison Rule – that top 5 picks who post rookie PERs of less than 10 won’t make much of themselves, let alone an All-star game?

Barely 2 weeks after the glitz and glamour of the 2016 NBA Draft – which you can read all about here in case you missed it – the NBA dove head on into Summer League action. I love Summer League, the time of year where even Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson can be optimistic about the upcoming season (before he has to trot out Bogan Bogdanovic and Trevor Booker for 30+ minutes per night).

While I’m not often aroused at the thought of watching players like JaMychal Green, TJ McConnell and Henry Sims run up and down a basketball court, the prospect of seeing the top ten draft picks in action was too much to turn down.

Lloydy and Dave live in a location where the NBA draft commences at 7.30am on a Friday morning. For the past three years, it’s been a perfect reason for them to take the day off, commence proceedings with a whiskey and dry (or two) and watch the NBA draft with their big boards in hand. This year, they’re joined by Disco Stu (and his big board) and take you along for the ride with their very first NBA draft diary.

The process is simple (for a three person game): if someone predicts a pick right, and the others don’t, they each drink a double shot of a 40% liquor of their choice. If two predict right while the other doesn’t, the loser drinks double that.

Is there really anything you’d rather be doing at 7.30am? Enjoy.

Kevin Durant has decided to wuss out and join the enemy. He must think that a manufactured title is better than no title – just look at Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and Karl Malone (who joined the enemy too late).

The sad thing is that Durant could easily have won it all right where he was and been the best player on a championship team. It is now highly unlikely that this will ever happen in his career. If he’s lucky, he’ll go down as one of the best championship second bananas of all time.
