He showed us flashes of Tim Duncan during Kentucky’s almost improbable run to a 40-0 season, cementing himself as the number 1 pick in the 2015 Draft.    And the best part?     There won’t be a Hack-A-Towns. As an 81.3% foul shooter, we are likely to see Towns' actual...

Is Tristan Thompson worthy of a max contract? This has been one of the biggest questions in the NBA this summer, as Thompson is currently holding out from re-signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and asking for a whole lot of money.
