Rumor: Lillard the NBA Live 15 cover athlete?

5

It seems pretty likely considering that their first screenshot was of him shooting over Irving (the previous cover athlete) and that they even used him for the graphics close up. Plus he was the only NBA player to cameo in the Madden 15 commercial (also EA). Now we have a french article saying (according to google translate) that he is confirmed as the cover athlete. It is possible though that this article is just making the same assumption to get page hits. What do you guys think?

JD 42: The Question

I recently had a religious revelation of sorts, and was interested in hearing BE's thoughts on the matter. I've always been a scientifically minded agnostic, so this is rather big for me since it...

www.twitter.com Interesting that Charlotte is the highest by far in player assist season highs. Also interesting seeing the differences West vs East coast.

Kings to Retire Travis Outlaw's Jersey (Satire)

Got some great stuff in there, including his new nickname: Swaggissippi.

Luke Babbitt doing well for the Pelicans

Small sample size, but it's good to see him finding a home in the NBA again.

One more reason I'm loving our new depth and T-Rob.

Last year, we would have argued heavily over whether Michael Beasley was worth a shot coming off the bench. This also helps us appreciate T-Rob all the more. His career has basically mirrored Beasley's so far, but for different reasons. If off-court means anything, I think we'll see a much different career trajectory than Beasley's.

McGee: Michael Jordan Turns Bobcats Over To Rich Cho

Ryan McGee writes in ESPN: The Magazine that Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan has turned over key decision-making responsibilities to GM Rich Cho, who held the same position for the Portland Trail Blazers. Hat tip to Ben Golliver

Would you trade LMA for picks (with poll)

So I seem to keep hearing the same questions being asked repeatedly about our current situation, one of which I wanted to clear up. To do this, I need a poll. So, would you be willing to blow it up...

Back-up 4: Babbitt or Hickson?

This may seem like a silly question, but after thinking about it I realized that it is much closer than expected. Both players have been playing very well in very small sample sizes, though Hickson...

Spurtability= The statistic

Hey guys, I've been taking a statistics class recently and just got into variability and standard deviation. I'm not going to get deep into it, but basically variability is how much a data set...

A look at true point guard potential including Nolan Smith

A look at true point guard potential of rookie scoring guards. Nolan's passing to three point shooters reminds me of Steve Blakes great passing within set plays. A reminder of this would be Webster's big 24 pt. quarter.

The Point Forward: All-NBA teams

Great praise for Aldridge here, mostly because so little was said about him. For three spots for the F/C All NBA third team, out of Garnett, Horford, Bosh, Randolph, Love, Griffin, Duncan, Carmelo,...

Trade idea from a Blazers fan

With the emergence of Aldridge at the center position and the obvious fact that we are not competing for the championship this year, I thought this trade could be very beneficial for both teams. h...

Thinking of Batum and the Blazers a couple years down the road

I've actually been pretty critical of Batum recently, not because of of his shooting or defense, but for his ability to take over a game. We've all seen the flashes of briliiance, but we've also...

Rudy's future

To start off with, don't get me wrong, but as much as I love his game it's not likely he is going to be on this team longer then he is contractually obliged. I'd love for him to be a spark off the...

Nate is stubborn. This is one of the top four statements of BE, along with Blake/Outlaw sucks and Roy's selfishness (good one). But is Nate really stubborn? Maybe in some ways, but this is not the...
