Kobe once told Iguodala he'd drop 50 on him, almost did it

Andre Iguodala is one of the NBA’s finest perimeter defenders, so it’s no small feat when someone torches him, even if it’s Kobe Bryant in his prime. Bryant not only did it, but he even warned Iguodala that it was coming. The story starts on Nov. 11, 2005, when Iguodala was a second-year pro with the Philadelphia 76ers. On that night, the young Iguodala faced Kobe Bryant and...

Game 7 at is hardly a lock: An NBA cautionary tale

I have been saying for a week that being down 3-1 in a seven-game series, while not a position to be desired, is not fatal to a very good basketball team. If that team is the defending NBA champion, there’s even less cause for panic. To support that position, I merely had to recount my own experience covering the 1995 Phoenix Suns, who had the defending champion Rockets in a 3...

Warriors, Thunder taking turns beating each other in the opposite style

The Oklahoma City Thunder were never going to win Game 5. At least, that's what it felt like for most of the night - not against that team in that situation in that arena. Though for one long moment, as a Kevin Durant 3-pointer hung in the air with 35 seconds remaining, nobody managed a breath. For a moment, the impossible seemed suddenly plausible.
