Disgusting. Embarassing. Garbage. These are just some of the words being used by Dallas Mavericks players to describe yesterday's loss to the Toronto Raptors.

It looks as if Toronto does gain an advantage by playing against Western Conference teams early on Sundays, according to Chris Black.

DeMar DeRozan has an opportunity to be part of what is arguably one of the worst dunk contest lineups of all-time.

Imagine if LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh decided to take pay cuts from their max contracts and all signed with the same team and spent the next five years trying to win as many championships as they could. Not going to happen, according to Wade.

The Globe and Mail's Michael Grange echoes a previous column by Sports Illustrated's Ian Thomsen regarding to the importance of Andrea Bargnani to the future of the franchise.

In praise of unsung hero Amir Johnson.
