Anyone who dresses the way Kim Mulkey does loves attention. And since the ultra-competitive and always controversial head coach has never shied away from the camera, she might as well show up in Waco next month for a photo-op on Brittney Griner’s big night — even if the two can’t stand each other. – Carron J.

The Milwaukee Bucks, by virtue of having the fourth-best record in the NBA, could afford to take the gamble that is firing your coach midseason. Their position in the standings gives them the luxury of “having patience” with new skipper, same offense Doc Rivers, and if that means trading a few losses to implement a play style better suited for the postseason, so be it. – Sean Beckwith Read More

Ben Simmons shows up to work, posts up on the bench in vibrant fits, shades, and quietly monitors the Nets from afar. The Nets’ well-compensated point forward has one of the best desk jobs in the NBA. Simmons being back on the shelf to rest another affliction once made him a maligned figure, but he should finally be turning the corner in the court of public opinion. For fans, that might be frustrating, but for the rank-and-file professionals who glide up and down the court every night, he’s probably never looked more like the Platonic ideal. – DJ Dunson Read More

The Golden State Warriors have had a hellacious run over the past decade in the NBA winning four championships and appearing in six Finals over this time. One of the core pieces from the beginning of this dynasty has been Klay Thompson. Despite what Thompson has meant to this franchise, many people, including Warrior fans, are waiting for the team to trade the sharpshooter. If you’re on that hype train, you might want to slow down just a bit. – Criss Partee Read More

Tyrese Haliburton played 22 minutes and change on Tuesday night. A hamstring injury has been nagging him for most of January. Haliburton has missed 10 of the Indiana Pacers’ last 11 games. Usually, there would be no issue with him needing 15-20 games to fully recover from a soft-tissue injury. In fact, at no time in NBA history would that be an issue, except for this current season. – Stephen Knox Read More

Joel Embiid, the world’s best regular-season player, is closing in on his second consecutive MVP if he remains upright. When active, Embiid is a force of nature, bending defenses to his whim and simultaneously wielding an unduly influence over Philadelphia’s defense. – DJ Dunson Read More

NBA executive vice president Joe Dumars has to say everything is fine while standing in front of a fiery explosion of scoring. And, of course, he’s going to be anti-load management. He is a shill for the league and has to toe the company line on the state of the game. However, it’d just be nice to at least acknowledge the recent critiques lobbed at the Association by fans, players and coaches, alike. – Sean Beckwith Read More

Here are all of them, including James’ record and average stats against them courtesy of StatHead. – Cale Clinton Read More
