    With what Stan Van Gundy has done to the roster, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has a chance to break out. With the NBA season fast approaching, SB Nation NBA is highlighting players believed to be break out this season. This is DBB's submission. Stan Van Gundy now has his own team. All that is left from what he inherited is Brandon Jennings, Andre Drummond, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. After trading for Reggie Jackson and making more moves this offseason, Van Gundy has his team. But while people are talking about how Jackson and Drummond are going to thrive, people might be overlooking KCP.

    Preseason prognosticators may doubt that Detroit has any shot at making the playoffs, but if the team can build upon last season’s successes, it may even battle for a top-four seed. So ESPN has already weighed in with its prediction that the Pistons will win 35 games and finish 11th in the Eastern Conference. This view is a safe projection, predicated on the fact that the team suffered through a disappointing 2014-15, lost a key player (Greg Monroe) in free agency, and has added many new faces to its roster. But a closer look at what happened last year, plus the new players Coach Stan Van…

Not engaging in overt racism means that he has already been an improvement over Donald Sterling, although early returns on the franchise's new uniforms and logos have not been positive. Despite that early mix of positives and negatives, Ballmer's ability to overhaul the Clippers' image must be obsessed at least a bit into the future, when we can take a broader view of his tenure and his vision for the city's second-most…

How much can he really help Cousins, though? Let's start with defense, because that is Koufos' calling card. His defensive rating backing…

That scenario seems to have taken place, as Shams Charania is reporting that Moreland is returning to the Kings on a one-year deal with "significant guarantees".  Those guarantees likely come at a discount to the deal that Moreland would have had if the Kings didn't waive him (his contract would have become fully…

I was expecting Dukan to receive a training camp invite following his steady play in Vegas, but Vlade Divac’s decision to give him a guaranteed contract should tell you all you need to know about the…

If you're mostly a basketball-only sports fan who doesn't devote a lot of time or brain space to other sports beyond hoops, it's hard not to get a little bit stir-crazy this time of year. There's an interval of about 8-9 weeks or so - starting in late July, as the free agent signings start to wrap up and the real offseason begins, and ending in late September when training camp gets underway - where you just have nothing. It's pretty sad. Being one of these fans myself, I start to feel…

His explanation was fairly extensive but one point was particularly interesting. Olshey claimed that Stotts was largely responsible for expanding Nicolas Batum's game by empowering him to do more on the basketball court. He thought a similar thing would happen with Aminu. Al-farouq is already a plus defender, elite rebounder for the small forward position, and a solid finisher at the rim. If he could become…

  • Why Would The Wizards Give Bradley Beal A Max-Level Contract Extension?

    Jack Winter
    4 Sep 2015 | 10:40 am
    Getty Image Players have almost no leverage in extension negotiations as restricted free agency looms the following summer. There’s simply very little incentive for teams to lock-up youngsters before they hit the semi-open market, and that’s especially true if the player in question is asking for an ultra-lucrative deal that takes potential performance going forward into account. But that’s the nature of development in basketball. Most players not only improve from season-to-season over their first several professional campaigns, but the subsequent handful, too. In the…

    Getty Image Good-guy LeBron James is at it again, and this time, he’s turning his attention to adults by helping them receive their General Education Diplomas (GED). Earlier in the summer, The LeBron James Family Foundation announced a program that would send over 2,000 Ohio-based children to college. Now, James, in a partnership with Project Learn of Summit County, is helping out the parents and guardians of the children enrolled in the foundation’s scholastic mentorship program who don’t have high school degrees or a GED by providing them with financial and emotional…
  • Kevin Durant Is Reportedly Considering Joining Carmelo Anthony In New York

    4 Sep 2015 | 9:40 am
    Getty Image You can probably speculate as to which talking head on which network made the suggestion, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t tell you what Stephen A. Smith said on ESPN last week about the impending free agency of Kevin Durant AND Kobe Bryant. Durant’s July, 2016 has been discussed ad nauseam since before this past summer, and even before 2015 — the year before the year before he’s a free agent (not a typo). That’s what happens with a player of KD’s caliber, the only NBA player who might be able to challenge LeBron James in terms of…

    USA TODAY Sports There are trade demands, and there’s what Markieff Morris continues to do ever since the Phoenix Suns traded his brother Marcus in July. Both of the Morrii felt disrespected by the trade, and Markieff has let it known, very publicly and very explicitly, that he doesn’t want to continue his career with the Suns. On Thursday, Morris’ insistence continued with this tweet.

    Eric and Eric slid into each other's DMs to discuss a bevy of Bucks questions on their mind, including MCW, the offense, and who on the team may be ready for an All-Star berth. Regularly, Brew Hoop's resident Erics (Buenning and Nehm) will DM each other on Twitter about the Bucks topics they find most interesting. Sometimes, the conversations are particularly good. This is one of those times...or maybe not.  We'll let you decide!

    Alternatively: Mopeland, Dopeland, and, to a lesser extent, No-Hopeland And order is restored. Our first four polls have seen the Brew Hoop community kick off a quartet of youngish-to-quite-young players, and frankly, I've gone a bit nuts. But now, finally, a guy has been sent packing who we can all agree has absolutely no long-term value to this organization and won't do anything of consequence to help the team move forward on its path to glory. Except that he was actually quite good in his first two professional seasons and might be a pretty great fit for the team this year. This is…
  • Breakout Bucks: Which Milwaukee Buck is most likely to break through in 2015?

    Frank Madden
    3 Sep 2015 | 5:00 am
    The Milwaukee Bucks may not be quite ready to join the Eastern Conference elite, but let's be clear: big things are expected of them over the next few seasons. As a result, the status quo won't be good enough going forward; a roster full of young talent will have to convert its raw potential into real production at some point, and hopefully sooner rather than later. So who will be the Bucks' breakout star of the coming season?  We each have our favorites, but a team with a half dozen "core" players 25 or younger provides plenty of options. So let's break down the guys who might be…

    Dan Sinclair
    1 Sep 2015 | 6:00 am
    This one, on the other hand, has infinite pun potential. "Youth movement" is a pretty catchy phrase for rebuilding NBA teams. It got tossed around a fair amount in Bucks-centric chatter last season. But "movement" in this context isn't usually synonymous with "exodus," which is what we seem to have going on here. The ages of the players now identified as the four least-valuable members of the Milwaukee Bucks' 2015 roster are as follows: 22, 21, 20, 27. The last member of that foursome is the latest to go: three-year veteran center Miles Plumlee. 27 might not exactly qualify him as a "young"…

    Today, Sports Illustrated began unveiling their list of the top 100 players for the upcoming 2015-2016 season. These lists don't mean much once the season starts (or even now), but they are a fun and harmless way to work back into training camp and the regular season, and it is cool when a player from the Bucks makes the list. At spot #100 on said list was Giannis Antetokounmpo, with players like Khris Middleton and Greg Monroe probably coming later when other segments of the list get revealed. Though Giannis has held internet darling status basically since his debut in the league, his…

    Stephen Curry (fourth), Draymond Green (16th) and Klay Thompson (26th) ranked in the top 30 of SI's top 100 players list, which was compiled with an eye on who could succeed on the widest range of teams. SI completed their top 100 players list today with "transformational" Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry being ranked fourth, just ahead of 2015 NBA MVP runner-up James Harden of the Houston Rockets and so-called point god Chris Paul of the L.A.

    In a recent poll, the GSoM community predicted that Festus Ezeli will have a break-out year in 2015-2016. We look back at his career thus far while envisioning his potential moving forward. Festus Ezeli will be 26 in October. It has been a full 11 years since he graduated from a Nigerian high school at the age of 14. At the time, he aspired to be a physician. In 2004, with an eye towards achieving academic and career success, his parents sent him to live with a pediatrician uncle in California. Yuba City, in fact, near Sacramento. He had never played basketball before, but, standing at…

    I hate Steve Kerr. Am I a terrible monster? Isn't Steve Kerr a golden god, above scorn by plebes such as myself? No, he's not, but I'm a monster nonetheless, because of the grossly frivolous basis for my baseless and stupidly hyperbolic hatred. I hate Steve Kerr because of Marreese Speights. Here's the thing: I stupidly and hyperbolically hated Marreese Speights for years. I derided him in previews and recaps in 2013-2014, scowled at him via my television whenever he played the Warriors in years prior, and basically disrespected him in a way that only people on the internet can get away with.

    There are plenty of good players ranked ahead of Andrew Bogut and Andre Iguodala in SI's list of top 100 NBA players for the 2015-16 season, but few would fit the Golden State Warriors better. Ben Golliver and Rob Mahoney of SI.com began releasing chunks of their top 100 NBA players list yesterday and two Golden State Warriors made the top 76: 2015 All-Defensive Second Team selection Andrew Bogut (#76) and 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala. That leaves Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson to be ranked somewhere in the currently unreleased top 30, but Bogut and Iguodala's rankings are…

    Tony Snell and Doug McDermott haven't provided the Bulls much thus far, but with a new coach and a tightening title window, Chicago will need them to take the next step in their respective careers. [Thanks to Tyler for today's post. This is part of an SBNationNBA Theme Day, looking at potential breakout players this coming season -yfbb] For Tony Snell and Doug McDermott, their very young careers have been rather suboptimal, to say the least.

    Jimmy Butler is a top 20 player, according to SI. Player rankings are fine. Not 'fine' like a dog drinking coffee inside a burning house or a jilted celebrity, but actually alright: mindlessly enjoyable and harmless and probably not something worth getting totally worked up over. This is, admittedly, a controversial stance. Player rankings exist in part because people love to hate them.

    The Bulls have been great in close games for the past five years. What is behind their success, and can they maintain it under new coach Fred Hoiberg? It takes a lot of little things to win close games in the NBA. Part of the formula is smart coaching decisions, another part is players who can perform in the clutch, and it doesn't hurt to have random chance on your side as well. For the past 5 years, the Chicago Bulls have been lucky to possess all of the above.

    Late Wednesday night there was a TMZ report that Derrick Rose was named (along with two of his associates) in a lawsuit accusing him of rape and other grisly and heinous acts. The plaintiff is anonymous, and alleges that she and Rose had a relationship between 2011 and 2013, with the rape occurring in August of 2013. The lawsuit's been confirmed to exist (hey, it was TMZ, you never know) and filed in Los Angeles County (via). A spokesperson for Rose has since issued a denial (via): The plaintiff's allegations are completely false and without any factual basis. This is nothing more than a…

  • Why George Hill will be the most intriguing Pacer to watch in 2015-16

    C. Cooper
    3 Sep 2015 | 2:01 pm
    In 2014, he was passive. In 2015, he was assertive. What he is next season will make him the most compelling Pacer. George Hill's star is like the Sun. This is not to say that the Pacers' universe revolves around him. In fact, quite the opposite. The luminosity of his talent is like that of the Solar System's central star because under the right celestial circumstances it can be partially or fully obscured. During a solar eclipse, the Sun doesn't actually disappear when the Moon passes between it and the Earth, the darkness only makes it seem so. The same can be said of Indiana's point guard.

We've heard the offseason moves.  Monta Ellis in.  Roy Hibbert out.  But why is it that the 2015 Rookie Class is catching my attention the most?  After a solid Summer League performance, the rookies Myles Turner and Joseph Young are my players to keep an eye on heading into the new season.  We know Paul George, George Hill and Ellis are proven players but are going to need some help from the young guns to make a run in the next couple years.

    The Pacers will turn a parking garage into a state-of-the-art practice facility after getting the green light from Indy's Capital Improvement Board. Despite the old-school feel, the Fieldhouse still doesn't seem that old, does it? Well, despite how enjoyable it is for those of us of a certain age, Bankers Life Fieldhouse no longer keeps up with the modern NBA needs. So after 15-some-odd-years, the Pacers are looking to expand and build a new practice facility across the street, between the railroad tracks and the Virginia St. parking garage.

    The 43rd overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft represented well in NBA.com's annual rookie survey. The scoring acumen of Pacers' second-round pick, Joseph Young, has caught the attention of his peers. Young was tabbed as the biggest steal of the draft in a survey conducted at the Panini Rookie Photo Shoot earlier in the month. In an effort to diversify the results, the 36 rookie participants were not permitted to vote for themselves, their college teammates, or current NBA teammates. Young garnered 12.1% of the "biggest steal" vote, outshining a quartet of second-place finishers, Tyus Jones…

    When the Pacers are in a crunch, who should the team use in the clutch? The Past: Down two with 12 seconds remaining in an overtime contest against the Washington Wizards, Roy Hibbert was supposed to set a backscreen for Chris Copeland to fade for a go-ahead three-pointer from the corner. Instead, Nene sagged off Hibbert in the paint, effectively cutting off Donald Sloan's pass to Indiana's sharpshooter. The Result: Roy Hibbert, wide open, attempting a game winning shot 27-feet from the basket. Spoiler Alert: It did not end well. Later, in Philadelphia, a similar result would occur. Down…

    The Suns took the youngest player in the NBA draft this past spring, but Devin Booker talks like a much more mature person than your normal 18 year old. He hopes to parlay his shooting, basketball IQ and fundamentals into a long NBA career. Phoenix Suns rookie Devin Booker, a 6'6" shooting guard, knows his calling card is shooting. Above all else, he knows that with his off-ball movement, high lift and quick release he can get his shot off against anyone in the league. But he also knows that fundamentals, and keeping the game simple, is key to making it a career. "The area I grew up in, Grand…

As of now, they will enter the 2015/16 season as the 10th youngest team in the NBA, but as with most numerical rankings there is a caveat, and in the Suns' case it is something of a double-caveat. The average age of the team is skewed by veterans such as Tyson Chandler and P.J. Tucker, who are currently taking residence in the Valley due to the fact that the Suns have every intention of making the 2016…

    Number two on the roster review docket, is the incumbent starting shooting guard, Kevin Martin. He is one of the holdovers from a bygone era: The Adelmanian Years. The Adelmanian Age was a time in Twolves past when PFs shot step back threes, wing players imitated NFL wide outs: when the front court featured flat footed rim-protection and everyone complained far too much about officiating. This era was  riddled with injuries that left the organization wallowing in mediocrity. While it still far surpassed the rule of the tyrant Rambis Khan, who pulled the team back  to the “Johnny…

Ironically, Minnesota ended up with the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s Draft as well, selecting big man Karl-Anthony Towns, and his presence, along with Wiggins, Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin, and a potentially healthy Nikola Pekovic, could be the foundation…

    SB Nation asked every NBA blog to write about the player they feel is poised to have a breakout season this year. It wasn't hard to identify the best candidate for the Wizards. The roster is filled with veterans who are beyond the age where they can have a breakout season, John Wall already had his breakout last season, and while we expect big things from Otto Porter this year, his potential for a breakout year pales in comparison to the obvious choice here: Bradley Beal. Everything is lining for this to be the year Beal takes the next step in his development. From the looks of things,…

More importantly, he beat out Kyrie Irving (23rd) and Damian Lillard (24th), two other stars at his position who he's frequently compared to point guard debates. Wall made a big jump up the rankings this year after SI ranked him 31st last season. Here's what they had to say about how Wall exceeded their expectations last season: Let us eat crow. We were wrong about John Wall, who came in at No.

But with Kyrie Irving missing the beginning of the season; this is an enormous opportunity for John Wall to show all media members and NBA fans not located in Washington, D.C. that he is the best point guard in the Eastern Conference. Both Wall and Irving are fast. Both are at their best with the ball in their hands. And both guys were drafted with the top overall pick in back-to-back years so it is obvious…

  • Mavs’ new additions share desire to bring title back to Dallas

    DALLAS — Although they all join the Dallas Mavericks on different paths that led them to town, new additions Deron Williams, JaVale McGee and Wesley Matthews share a common goal of bringing the NBA title back to Big D. Matthews was the first key domino to fall for the Mavericks this offseason, signing a reported four-year deal worth $70 million on July 9 to come to Dallas after spending the past five seasons with Portland. Williams, a three-time All-Star and the No. 3 overall pick of the Utah Jazz in the 2005 draft, then signed with the Mavericks as a free agent on July 14, inking a…

    In the video, Porzingis wears #6 and Willie is #14. Willy will come on next season and is described by Phil as being “stronger version of Luis Scola.” That’s strong. WG is a post player that gets rebounds. KP seems like stretch four that likes to set high screens and pop.

    The addition of this guy guarantees it: If Calderon doesn’t come back full speed in November (he was hobbled much of the second half of the season in case you quit watching), I would expect 4-years of college traingle royalty in Jerian Grant. He’s the 6’5″ point guard nephew of Horace Grant, of Chicago Bulls dynasty. So we have Derrick Williams, Jerian Grant and Aaron Afflalo as the shooting guard. The Afflalo signing assures decreased minutes for Langston Galloway, a d-league all star who started last season and was the Knicks’ only award-winner during the…

We have ourselves a new roster. Yes we struck out on the big names. People are saying they failed in that respect. I think the Knicks might be fun to watch this year. Much depends on Melo, the coach and how well the new players blend in chemistry-wise. We weren’t going anywhere with Tyson Chandler (neither did Dallas) so I welcome Robin Lopez and his workman game. We weren’t going anywhere with…

    knicksdefense
    11 Jun 2015 | 12:03 am
    As either a roster player next season or as a trade chip for perhaps a second-rounder? Note that Langston Galloway is in many of these highlights. Funny how salary cap could have prevented Thanasis from seeing any real NBA time last year but Langston got plenty of time to shine. Maybe Phil didn’t want to show the rest of the league how bad Thanasis is on offense, or how good Thanasis is on defense. At this point in the game of NBA Draft 2015, I know they’ve had Mudiay in and they plan to bring in many other new rookies for questioning. The Knicks are a mess, they only have 31 year…

What made you decide to drop weight? It started during [last] season, and even before that. I was talking to my wife, and she said “You were always your best at your college weight.” The saying is, the older you get, the lighter you’ve got to be. I thought Ray Allen did a great job of that, and Chauncey Billups too. I’m getting to the point where I’m a little bit older. I’m still young, but I’m a…

    Rushing to judgement is a character flaw in all of us. Some are just better at hiding it than others. But these days I’m striving to buck that trend, particularly when it comes to possibly jumping the gun on a player who still has room to grow. I’m sure most can relate, as often times our fandom gets the best of us. Only to come back and haunt in some form or fashion. A caveat counteracts that notion, however. As one investing their emotions is half the fun. I guess the constant tug-of-war will always exist, but as we continue to evolve as fans, letting a scenario play out to its…

There should be optimism in Minnesota this season as the young players are a year older and the team has some great veteran leadership. The Wolves have not had a winning season since 2004-05. Can they do it this season? Here are the things you need to know about the Timberwolves.   The Wolves had 2,424 points scored by rookies last season. That was 30.2% of Minnesota’s total points scored. The Wolves led the NBA in points scored by rookies and percentage of points scored by rookies. While Minnesota…

    Jeff Teague may not be the best point guard in the league, but a panel of NBA experts weighed in on his game in a positive way. August and September represent the "dead period" in the NBA world, and those writers who cover the sport regularly often use player comparisons to generate discussion. We are certainly in support of that practice in this space, and when a panel of NBA writers from CBS Sports opted to compare Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague to another interesting PG in Ty Lawson, I was riveted. Fortunately for Atlanta, the panel unanimously believes that Teague is the…

    Yes, in my house! There are good reasons that the Hawks should and are going to retire Dikembe Mutombo's jersey, as announced during the Fulton County Commissioners event Tuesday morning. The jersey will be hoisted to the rafters on 11/24. What are the reasons? Glad you asked -- here they come, nerf bullet point style! Mutombo, by my own measures, admittedly, came in at #4 in the Greatest of All-Time Atlanta Hawks list I did in 2010. He came in only behind Dominique, John Drew and the late Dan Roundfield. Nobody else added more, in a minimum 300 games, than did Mutombo. So his short stint (5…

He's the highest ranked Spur on the list, ahead of Tony Parker (54), Danny Green (50), LaMarcus Aldridge (12), and Tim Duncan (11). Kawhi's inclusion at the top of the list should come as no surprise. Though the first few months of the 2014-2015 season were marred by freakish eye and hand injuries, the Klaw made quite a bit of…

If you think about it, it's inconvenient in the extreme to have new players on the roster every year. You've got to make new nameplates for their locker, new uniforms (players tend to be real prima donnas about having their own personalized jerseys), you've got to ask all kinds…

    The NBA offseason is long, so fans have to keep themselves entertained. In pursuit of that venture, this fan has kept all of us entertained in the process. Brandon Armstrong, NBA impressionist extraordinaire, has brought us some priceless clips this summer. These are the impressions NBA fans deserve, and the ones that they need right now in the dogs days of the offseason.

  • Building the best ever Spurs bench

    Michael Erler
    3 Sep 2015 | 5:00 am
    It's just like the last story, but more likely to make you angry. Yesterday, I wrote a fun little story about what would be my all-time best Spurs lineup. And lo, there was much complaining. Among the constructive feedback I received (besides the story itself being stupid of course) was that it was biased, self-serving and a vanity project. I plead guilty on all three counts. It was biased toward my reality, just as I encouraged all of you to be in the comments. It was self-serving in that if I don't post articles every so often, my superiors will gladly find someone else who will, so…

    4 Sep 2015 | 5:39 am
    At this point it can only be taken as cold comfort, everything Toronto Raptors fans thought was wrong about their team's former number one overall draft pick Andrea Bargnani was true. Bargnani really was putting himself first. Bargnani told RAI (Italy) in a recent interview, that is quoted in SB Nation's Nets Daily, his own personal results were more important than winning.

    Head coach Jay Triano had been spreading the minutes out early on at the FIBA Americas, but in a sloppy game against Venezuela, he turned to the stabilizing influence of Toronto Raptors new point guard Cory Joseph. The 82-62 final score belies the fact Canada let their opponent get back to within 11 points in the fourth quarter.

Pictures of a new slimmed down Lowry have gone viral in social media, but the once stocky guard hasn't slimmed down for the cameras, no this Raptor is getting ready for an 82 game schedule and a long playoff run.

Canada lead wire to wire and was up by 20 points after the first quarter. Andrew Wiggins and Nik Stauskas led Canada with 15 points apiece as head coach Jay Triano spread the minutes around as evenly as he could between his 12 players.

  • Looking Back: Tim Hardaway Turns 49

    NahomMerid
    2 Sep 2015 | 3:40 am
    Happy birthday to legendary point guard Tim Hardaway who turns 49 today. Hardaway played for five NBA teams in his eighteen year career, none more important than his six years with the Miami Heat. Hardaway was drafted fourteenth overall in the 1989 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors, where he played for the first six seasons of his career. In his rookie campaign, Hardaway averaged an incredible 15 points, 9 assists and two steals as a first year player, and was named to the All-Rookie First Team for his efforts. Hardaway then upped his numbers to 23 points and 10 assists the next year,…
  • Kobe Bryant’s Career Low NBA 2K Rating Sign Of The End? Outraged Fans React

    Many media outlets have announced their outrage at LA Lakers legend’s Kobe Bryant’s ranking in the upcoming NBA 2K16 video game. Bryant has been on every single 2K release since the franchise’s inception as NBA 2K in 1999, and even graced the cover in 2K10. However, in this year’s edition, which is set to be released in approximately a month, the Black Mamba is rated a career-low in the game, behind 30 other players. It was announced by the NBA 2K spokesman Ronnie 2K on Twitter via this image that Kobe will be rated an 85 overall in this year’s release, in…
  • Why Miami’s Hassan Whiteside Is Better Than LA’s DeAndre Jordan

    NahomMerid
    30 Aug 2015 | 12:03 am
    Yes, you read correctly. A player who appeared in just 48 games in a breakout 2014-15 season is better than a 7-year star big man who just signed a $90 million max contract. Here’s why. Whiteside had an incredible double double against the Clippers in one of Miami’s biggest wins of the season. Whiteside and Jordan are two players with very similar games and responsibilities out on the basketball court. They have a very similar play style at both ends of the floor, providing an incredible defensive presence by blocking and altering shots, as well as collecting double-digit rebounds…

    For the first time in four decades, the Golden State Warriors find themselves on top of the NBA, and are set to defend their title in 2015-16. However, it seems that this time the reigning champs are not in fact the favorites to repeat, as in the eyes of many, they benefited from injured opponents and favored matchups in the playoffs.   Golden State’s biggest obstacles were absent from the past postseason, by way of a tiebreak that would have been a first round matchup, in the Oklahoma City Thunder. Russell Westbrook has emerged as an MVP caliber player, Serge Ibaka and Enes Kanter…

Arison proposed via Instagram on Friday a nice, cool color scheme for new Miami jerseys to be produced by Adidas. The design featured eclectic neon shades of blue and pink, similar to the color scheme of the 80’s television show Miami Vice. In his Instagram post, the successful executive had photos of Dwyane Wade in what appeared to be spin-offs of Miami’s current home and away jerseys, which are…

  • Gilbert Arenas Loses $2M gains Lesson

    Vladimir Dessources
    3 Sep 2015 | 3:00 am
    Gilbert Arenas was taken by his former assistant John White for the tune of $2.1 Million. Yesterday a jury found John White guilty of 11 counts of wire fraud and 4 counts of filing false taxes.  Apparently White, Gilbert Arenas former assistant, wired unauthorized transactions to various accounts belonging to himself. He used the money to buy sports cars and pay for properties in his name. With Gilbert Arenas having an associate like this,  he would not need any enemies. The transfers probably went unnoticed at first because Arenas has made a huge amount of money in his playing career.

    The other day it was apparent to me that fundamentals were not a big priority for young adults in the city I live in. Myself and a group of friends which included editor Troy Wint went to play basketball in a park in the inner city. As per usual we were looking to play a couple games of 21 or Rough as some would call it. Being a bit advanced in age we started off by having a dynamic warm up. It took us at least 15 minutes before we  even touched a basketball. The fundamentals of warming up our muscles were very important before we began to play. After a nice warm up it was time to play some…

The Bucks started the 2014 offseason hiring Jason Kidd, who was fresh off a successful rookie season with the Brooklyn Nets taking them to the 2nd round of the playoffs. The Bucks selected Jabari Parker with the 2nd overall pick in the draft. Parker went down due to injury  in only 25 games in his rookie campaign, but was very productive averaging 12 points and five rebounds per contest. Milwaukee  traded leading scorer Brandon Knight at the trade deadline. The Bucks relied on youth, length and defense to attain  a record…

The other was his making it through the first roster trimming with his dream unscathed.There actually needs to be some proper context here. Hayne is an unproven rookie and to see as much time as he did in the game against the Denver Broncos is already pretty impressive.
