Irving Dazzles as Lowry’s Frustration Continues

I remember whenever I would run a pick n’ roll on a high-school court, everything would feel cramped. There’s hardly any room to find the dive man, the help defense is a step closer, it’s frustrating. Playing on NCAA and CIS courts was always a massive help in that regard. The court feels wide open, ... Read more

A farm-kid who loves animals (deer, usually) pushes the big kid over while he’s tying his shoe. No bother, the child gets up again ... Read more

Anunoby sees this and ducks under the rim, Leonard drops off to Anunoby, but he’s surrounded by three defenders. This isn’t a problem for the incredibly strong Anunoby, he rises up for a 2-handed jam in traffic. ... Read more

I would come to RR and read through the comments, fervently looking for DeMar DeRozan praise or slander. I didn’t have an account to comment with, so when people would go to task ... Read more
