It’s back. The Hoops Manifesto’s Sixth Annual College Dunk of the Year Tournament is back. We’ve selected 12 of the best dunks from the 2016/17 college basketball season (Canada and all levels in the U.S.) and have paired them up in a single elimination tournament (the best four dunks in our opinion heading into this get a bye into the quarterfinals). The rules are pretty simple: you, the reader, vote for which dunk is the best between each pair
The Cavs sweep of the Pacers is fueling already strong speculation that Indiana is going to have to deal Paul George. Two teams, the Celtics and Lakers, are both rumored to have interest. Mitch Lawrence of the Sporting News says Boston is the better landing spot.
My gut told me that Isaiah was going to have a huge game on Sunday, and boy was that feeling right on. Thomas poured in 33 points in 36 minutes to lead Boston in it’s series tying win over Chicago.

To get better before the combine, Foster was on IV fluids and claims he “drank and ate as much as I could without throwing up.” “I couldn’t eat much, but I had to drink water and Gatorade,” he said. “Then a few coaches said something about me being too light… so I drank and ate as much as I could without throwing up.
Paul George was asked about Myles Turner’s play after Game 2 Monday and he told reporters : “We just need [Myles] to challenge Tristan [Thompson]…” The Indiana Pacers center has been fairly quiet in the first two games of the series against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he evidently took George’s message to heart. In the second quarter of Game 3 on Thursday, Turner got his own rebound after missing a shot, then proceeded to put the Cavaliers center on a poster with a vicious slam that got the crowd at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on its feet.
Below is the leaked schedule, per numerous media outlets now. My first thoughts is this is a nightmare schedule early.
