League News

New Nets Making The Most Of Things

NEW JERSEY, Jan 1 (AP) – Chris Bosh is fitting in nicely in New Jersey alongside fellow 03 draftee Carmelo Anthony. The duo believes that they can lead the Nets to the NBA Finals this season if they can ‘make it work’.

“We have a really great opportunity to achieve something special here,” Bosh said, “I could not have wished for better place to be.” Bosh is the type of scorer that the team has desperately needed. His post game compliments Anthony’s scoring style and is refreshing for Nets’ fans who have been annoyed in the past by the erratic game of Yi Jianlian – although talented, his offensive repertoire clashed with Anthony’s too much.

With the two forwards leading the team in scoring, they are supported by the all-around brilliant Barney Steele and surrounded by a deep bunch of role players including ex-Cavs guard Daniel Gibson. The Cavs are at the top of the East standings and Gibson says that he cannot wait to face them in the playoffs, “There’s a lot of bottled up feelings. The only to let it out would be against them on the basketball court.”

Suns Still Trying To Move Lopez

PHOENIX, Jan 1 (AP) – Robin Lopez is definitely out of Phoenix; the only question is when. There are a few teams after the services of the former Stanford player with the 7 footer’s size big on team wish lists. The Dallas Mavericks, Miami Heat, Sacramento Kings, Atlanta Hawks and Washington Wizards have all put their bids in for Lopez.

It is reported that the Suns are not interested in sending Lopez to a Western Conference foe and that the Hawks and Wizards are frontrunners to acquire the services of Lopez as they are able to offer a slew of draft picks for him.

Draft Prospect Jennings Calls Rubio A Bust

INDIANA, Jan 1 (AP) – Brandon Jennings has launched a taunt all the way from Europe at Ricky Rubio in Indiana. “He’s a bust for sure,” Jennings told an ESPN columnist who was interviewing him, “There’s no question about it. I said it back then (in 2009) and I am going to say that I told you all so.”

Rubio had an impressive start to the season but a slump in December has seen his numbers dip below the double digit mark in both points and assists. Rubio has defended himself by saying, “Brandon Jennings doesn’t know what he is talking about. I put my team first and I know how to play proper basketball. I remember when we played in Europe, he wasn’t very good. My friends (in Spain) are telling me that he still doesn’t know how to play.”

When asked to elaborate, Jennings explained, “He’s (Jennings) always falling over.”

Yao Calls For More Help

HOUSTON, Jan 1 (AP) – Yao Ming is scared that he will retire without a NBA championship and has lobbied to his front office to ditch the youth movement and trade for veterans to support him. Yao has openly stated that he wants to stay with the Rockets for his entire career but is worried about whether the franchise will ever be competitive before he calls it a day.

“I want to have some more success in the playoffs,” Yao said, “Our team is not strong enough for that right now. I hope that we can fix that. I do like the young players and I want to help them but I want to win also.” Yao’s anxiousness is understandable as he has tasted success on the international stage but still has not had a meaningful playoff run in his NBA career.

Teammate Shane Battier has endorsed Yao’s position, “We have one of the youngest teams in the NBA and that’s not going to get us far in the West. I know that I’m not going to be around much longer but I do hope that the team helps reward Yao for all that he’s done here.”

Shad O’Greene Intends To Enter Draft

NEW YORK, JAN 1 (AP) – Controversial Philippines forward Shad O’Greene is in a tug of war with United States immigration and a race against time to be granted entry into the country. The convicted drug user has just been allowed to enter the NBA Draft after months of communications with the league head office and now faces his toughest battle: getting a working visa.

O’Greene, 22, has convinced the league to allow him to play in their league if he were to be selected in this year’s Draft. O’Greene’s criminal history and substance abuse was the reason for his application to enter the Draft last year was denied. His strangest misdemeanor was an incident where he had stolen toys from a toy store and burnt them in a pickup truck. He was only found to be responsible after admitting to the crime when police found him drunk in a children’s playpen of a parent’s room the next morning.

The PBA Defensive Player of the Year cause further outrage after fighting a fan in a PBA game. In a popular press release, O’Greene had stated, “You should see the other guy.” Assault charges against O’Greene were dropped but the damage was done and David Stern made the call to block O’Greene from entering the league. However, it appears that Stern has been convinced that O’Greene does not pose any risk to the league’s reputation after months of arguing that he has been receptive to rehabilitation and will agree to be on his best behavior if he were to play in the league.

O’Greene has stated that he hopes his hard-nosed defense reconciles fans with the ‘throwback era where everyone was bashing each other up and being physical like Chuck Norris.’ The PBA star was voted the most hated player in the Philippines for the second straight time last year and has just controversially quit the league by leaving his team in the fourth quarter of a recent game.

Race 2 MVP

1. Kevin Durant, SF, Seattle Stealth
29.3 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.5 spg, 1.5 bpg, .554 FG%, .429 3PT%, .902 FT%


This guy should have won player of the month. His team lost just once all November. He has increased his scoring average to close to 30 points per game and is shooting at an outrageously efficient clip. “This guy is the league MVP,” Head Coach George Karl has stated time and time again this season. I know what you are thinking – why would you listen to his own coach? Well, ask anyone in the league and they are calling Durant the best player at this moment. (Well – anyone but the next two players)

2. Lebron James, SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
24.8 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 6.5 apg, 1.9 spg, .491 FG%


Lebron James is in the second spot because his Cavs are the best team in the league. This season, new addition Raymond Felton is able to find James for good open looks and James is capitalizing by making 1 out of every 2 shots he takes. That field goal percentage would look even more impressive if he’d just hit shots from beyond the arc.

3. Moses Chara, SF, Sacramento Kings
23.5 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 6.9 apg, 1.5 spg, .488 FG%, .944 FT%


Is Moses Chara having an off year? Some would say so because of the lower numbers across the board and the career low three point shooting percentage. If you asked me, he’s having a great season. If it had not been for the Stealth’s freak run of late, the Kings would still be at the top of the West. And he might be shooting very poorly from beyond the arc but he is still the most lethal shooter in the league – and the player you want with the last shot in the clutch.

4. Chris Paul, PG, New Orleans Hornets
22 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 7.4 apg, 2.3 spg


Chris Paul is loving playing in New Orleans right now thanks to having a consistent sidekick in Mark Moore and the ability to sit back and have longer rests with the dependable sixth man Martell Webster. His assists average is nowhere near his customary double figure output but that’s just because the Hornets play a very unselfishly and swing the ball around multiple times before scoring. It’s much different when everything had to happen through Paul.

5. Andrew Bogut, C, Seattle Stealth
15 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 5.9 apg, 2.3 bpg, .536 FG%, .333 3PT%


Bogut could improve his .661 FT% but that’s the only thing bad we can say about him. He is the best passing big man in the league and one of the most underrated defensive players in the league. Bogut doesn’t average a double double nor does he rank in the top scorers’ list but he is still an MVP candidate. Without him, the Stealth would not be where they are now.

On the bubble: Carmelo Anthony, SF, New Jersey Nets; Brandon Roy, SF, Portland Trailblazers; Jay Gray, PF, Milwaukee Bucks; Martti Must, PF, Phoenix Suns; Andre Iguodala, SG, Philadelphia 76ers


Rookie Rankings

1. Coby Clark, C, Toronto Raptors
15.5 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 1.5 bpg
(Drafted 1 by Toronto)


Second amongst rookies in scoring and first in rebounding… Tied career high 23 points and added 13 rebounds against Washington Wizards… Could improve his work on the glass as he has only grabbed double digit boards three times during December… Proving to be a dependable scorer – scored in double digits in every game except for one game against Golden State…

2. Julian Martin, SG, Charlotte Bobcats
17 ppg, 1.2 rpg, 1.5 apg, 2.7 topg, .432 FG%, .285 3PT%, .740 FT%
(Drafted 4 by Charlotte)


Leads all rookies in scoring… Returned from injury early December… Had 25 points in second game back from injury… Has scored at least 17 points in 9 of 15 games this month… Has ended December with three consecutive 20+ point games…

3. Sam Slater, SG, Detroit Pistons
5.1 ppg, 2.8 apg
(Drafted 2 by Detroit)


Stepped into a starting role after Rip Hamilton was traded away… Is very up and down but finds ways to help team when he isn’t shooting well… Team was 4-0 when he scored in double figures in December… Third amongst all rookies in scoring…

4. Christian Oliver, PG, Houston Rockets
4.4 ppg, 3.0 apg
(Drafted 6 by Houston)


Leads all rookies in assists… Although it is early days, Oliver has been tipped as a trade asset for the Rockets… If he got the minutes, he would be a contender for rookie of the year but the Rockets are loaded in their backcourt…

5. Tracy Kenndy, C, Miami
2.4 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 0.8 bpg
(Drafted 49 by Miami)


Third amongst all rookies in rebounds and blocks… Surprisingly starting games for the Heat now… Don’t expect for him to be starting much longer as Pat Riley is working hard to get a trade to happen and bring in a starter…

Pretty crazy to see Bogut top 5 in the MVP race. Maybe cutting Ty lose wouldn't be so bad after all, seeing as how he's been the third fiddle. Fans and journalists be hating on me cuz I'm white.

Love the article about O'Greene. Also I could improved those 3 point shots, IRL I'm more of a threat beyond the arc than in mid range. :D

Arenas' gun scandal is nothing compared to this. Watch out for Shad bringing a chainsaw to the local day-care center, breaking in and carjacking from a Ferrari showroom, digging huge holes on the interstate, blasting heavy metal music outside his house at 4 AM, drugging farm animals, indecent exposure, the list goes on.

I was quite shocked to see him there too. He's actually number 3 in the MVP race in the game after Kevin and Lebron. Chara and Paul round off the top 5.

I think it's not because you are a poor shooter, it's because you have shit decision making. :P

Bogut is putting up Vlade Divac type numbers. Is he playing like a younger Kings' version of Vlade? I love Vlade :cool:

I haven't seen the younger Vlade actually. I would imagine that he is playing like Divac but more ferocity in the paint. He will go up for the dunk if he has it. If not, I enjoy the back down and baby hook left or right. He's a very very good player.

I reckon this is where me and you will definitely enjoy the Bogut Experience - hopefully will happen IRL next season. :D

I like the older Vlade. I actually meant Bogut was playing like the Kings' version of Divac (with more scoring), but he's quite a few years younger :wink:

EDIT: A bit of trivia, did you know that the Lakers put a rookie Vlade Divac on MJ in the NBA Finals in one game to try to slow him down :P

No. haha. How did he go?

Also... the way I like to play with Bogut is get him the ball in the paint. He will either pass to another open player or he will take the jumper if he has it, dunk, or back down on the defender and hook shot. Rarely I get him the ball outside of 8 feet from the hoop.

Does that sound like Vlade of the Kings? :)

Interview with NBA Draft Hopeful Shad O'Greene
Controversial prospect defends himself from accusations and his past
By Stephen A. Smith
ESPNNewYork.com


The following is a transcript of NBA Analyst Stephen A. Smith's live interview with NBA Draft prospect Shad O'Greene. You can listen to the interview and the full show on ESPN 1050 in New York from 7-9 p.m. ET


Stephen A. Smith: I'LL GO STRAIGHT TO THE POINT, ARE YOU A JUNKIE OR NOT?

SO'G: Definitely. Not.

Stephen A. Smith: ARE YOU LYING TO ME? ARE YOU LYING TO STEPHEN A. SMITH? A RECENT AP REPORT STATES THAT YOU ARE A CONVICTED DRUG USER. YOU DON'T MAKE A FOOL OF STEPHEN A. SMITH!

SO'G: It's a misunderstanding or lack of research on their part. I did check into a drug rehabilitation center but I was never convicted of any drug related crime.

Stephen A. Smith: SO YOU ARE AN ADDICT! WHAT SUBSTANCES DID YOU TAKE THAT MADE YOU ENTER YOURSELF INTO REHAB? COKE? CRACK? HEROINE? SPEED? X? MARIJUANA? CHEEZ DOODLES, WHICH BY THE WAY I MIGHT ADD ARE DELICIOUS.

SO'G: None of those stuff you mentioned. It was cough medicine or cough syrup.

Stephen A. Smith: YOU ARE GIVING ME BS RIGHT?! *licks Cheez Doodle bits of fingers* WHAT WOULD A GROWN MAN WITH DOODLES OF MONEY PLAYING FOR A PRO LEAGUE IN THEIR COUNTRY GET HOOKED ON COUGH MEDICINE WHEN YOU CAN EASILY BUY HIGH END DRUGS LIKE COCAINE OR X OR BUY A LIFETIME SUPPLY OF CHEEZ DOODLES?

SO'G: Every time we had a game I screamed a lot to my teammates. Whether I was on the bench or out there on the court. Even though I didn't have a cough, the medicine made my throat feel fine after all that exertion, I think you understand with all the screaming that you also do on your job, and it just went off from there until to the point that I was addicted to it an had to drink a bottle before and after every game plus in between quarters.

Stephen A. Smith: STEPHEN A. SMITH DOESN'T SCREAM LIKE SOME LUNATIC. IT MAY SOUND LIKE SCREAMING TO SOME HATERS BUT IT'S NOT. THIS IS MY NATURAL VOICE WHICH IS FILLED WITH CONVICTION AS I ALWAYS SPEW THE TRUTH!!! BACK TO YOU, WHY WOULD YOU SCREAM LIKE A MADMAN TO YOUR TEAMMATES?

SO'G: For one thing my former teammates don't know how to play defense. They defend like a bunch of pansies really, which annoys me. Another thing, not only do they suck on the defensive end but on offense as well. The idiots don't even know how to properly use a screen or pick, it's not like they are even good with iso plays. Seeing those things game in game out will eventually get to you until all you can do is scream at them or slap them in the face. Unfortunately I can't slap them in the face because I was under probation by the league for my previous behavior where I punched the referee and some lunatic fan so I just screamed at my stupid teammates all the time after that.

Stephen A. Smith: BUT THE FACT STILL REMAINS THAT YOU WERE ADDICTED TO SOMETHING AND ENTERED REHAB...

SO'G: ...yes but I was never convicted of a crime that's why NBA Commissioner David Stern allowed me to apply for the NBA Draft when he focused on the facts and ignored the rumors...

Stephen A. Smith: ...DOESN'T MATTER! I AM RIGHT, YOU ARE AN ADDICT AND YOU ADMITTED TO IT! STEPHEN A. SMITH IS NEVER WRONG! NOW, HOW ABOUT THAT MISDEMEANOR REPORT THAT STATED YOU HAD STOLEN TOYS, SET IT ON FIRE, AND YOU WERE FOUND DRUNK THE NEXT DAY AND CONFESSED TO WHAT YOU DID? A CRIME IS A CRIME! HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT DRUGGIE?

SO'G: I did not steal those toys. I bought those legally with some money that I found on some boxes and cans marked with a red cross or something. Since no one claimed it from me after 24 hours, I think that makes it mine then. And since the toys are legally mine, I have every right to set them on fire...

Stephen A. Smith: ...BUT THE PICKUP TRUCK WASN'T YOURS! THE TRUCK BURNED ALONG WITH THE TOYS!..

SO'G: ..true but the owner did not press any charges so I still didn't commit a crime. Last I heard - the owner, and I emphasize which I have never met before in my entire life, was paid handsomely by the insurance company for the damages to his truck. I think I did a good thing for him by burning his truck.

Stephen A. Smith: IF YOU ARE INNOCENT AS YOU CLAIM YOU ARE THEN WHY DID YOU GET A MISDEMEANOR CHARGED AGAINST YOU?

SO'G: The charge is actually for being drunk when it's not allowed to drink alcohol or be drunk during that certain hour when the police found me...

Stephen A. Smith: ...IN A PLAYPEN! CARE TO EXPLAIN THAT?!

SO'G: I always wanted to sleep in it the same way you would want to be deep a bathtub of Cheez Doodles.

Stephen A. Smith: HARD TO ARGUE WITH THAT LOGIC. *licks Cheez Doodles off five fingers* EXPLAIN NOW WHY YOU QUIT ON YOUR TEAM DURING YOUR LAST GAME OF THE SEASON IN YOUR LEAGUE? YOU CAN'T DENY THE VIDEO EVIDENCE!

SO'G: I never quit on games. Never. If I have to wear a pink tutu on the court to win so be it but like I said before, my teammates have the basketball IQ of cockroaches. They didn't give any effort at all on both ends. It's like they sold the game and shite. I left out of disgusts for them...

Stephen A. Smith: ...IT'S NOT MR. SMITH! IT'S STEPHEN A. SMITH. YOU BETTER GET THAT RIGHT IF YOU WANT TO MAKE IT TO THE BIG LEAGUE! EXPLAIN NOW WHY...

SO'G: ...thanks for granting me this interview but I'm afraid that's all the time I have to give to you...

Stephen A. Smith: STEPHEN A. SMITH DID NOT REQUEST AN INTERVIEW WITH YOU. YOU FOOLED STEPHEN A. SMITH INTO GOING WITH YOU WHEN YOU TOLD HIM THAT YOU HAVE A CRATE OF CHEEZ DOODLES...

SO'G: ...did you enjoy the two bags or not? You could just return that one bag left if you're not satisfied with the interview and have any complaints...

Stephen A. Smith: ...NO NO. NOT AT ALL MY MAN. ALL IS GOOD. JUST MAKE SURE YOU BUY THEM NEW STOCK NEXT TIME. THESE ONES YOU GAVE ME HAVE CRUSHED CHEEZ DOODLES IN THEM. WHAT A WASTE OF PERFECT CHEEZ DOODLES I SAY.


Aside from his New York radio show, Stephen A. Smith also host another radio show on ESPN 710 in Los Angeles from 6-8 p.m. PT. Both shows concentrate on local sports with a concentration on the NBA on game nights as both stations are the flagships for the Knicks and Lakers, respectively.

Yes people. Stephen A. Smith is back with ESPN. So better mark your calendar for the NBA Draft because Stephen A. Smith is back in the Draft!

Nice recap, surprised to see Bogut in the Race and Ty not...

Good to see me breaking the 10 ppg barrier, despite getting half the minutes of my fellow NLSC class members, me and The X combine for more than 30 ppg at the two guard spot for the Mavs :headbang:


EDIT: Love the article shad

No. haha. How did he go?

Sit wrote:Also... the way I like to play with Bogut is get him the ball in the paint. He will either pass to another open player or he will take the jumper if he has it, dunk, or back down on the defender and hook shot. Rarely I get him the ball outside of 8 feet from the hoop.

Does that sound like Vlade of the Kings? :)

Not really, a little maybe. Vlade could hit the 3, could play high or low. C-Webb & him switched between low & high post.

I was more looking at the assist numbers of Bogut. When Bogut entered the league I thought he was going to be a great passing big man ala Divac & Sabonis, would improve his outside shot & turn into a better Vlade. Unfortunately I've been wrong, he's completely different player. A lot better defender, rebounder & low post game, but a lot worse shooter & FT shooter & not as good a passer.

I miss that great Kings team :(
