Hollinger clearly bumpedhis head when he wrote that Murphy would be a major rotation player. Murphy has been done for years now, just being toss around for salary/contract purposes like Raef LaFrentz was.

good catch, the salary total numbers on Shamsports.com aren't accurate right now. we fixed it.

How could Williams win in his Turkish debut when hes played a handful of games and looked like crap? Weird how European leagues work.

I love how the video called it the best "game" i only saw one person running at any given moment of these highlights. I seen better "games" playing with a nerf hoop with my friends as children

I had Rick Barry on my weekly show, NBA Unplugged. In that show Rick Barry touched on Clifford Ray how they are best friends and go fishing. Anyways he touched on the departure of Clifford Ray from the Celtics and informed us that Clifford was not paid the full championship bonus that assistant coaches read. I was kind of shocked and hurt by those comments because i didn't think the Celtics would pull those kind of moves.

i know but felt i should point out the arguments I have regarding the owners inability to agree, how its a moot point in my opinion because they can agree or disagree but if the players won't accept the proposed changes, its all useless.

fantastic post... another factor i would consider is the meaning of the game, a "clutch" shot verses the bobcats in January isn't as important as a "clutch" shot during the playoffs... i would like to see them break it down for .500 + teams only and see whos the most clutch. players famously take nights and games off verses lesser opponents. they even did it back in the 60's, i think it was 64-65 season where the celtics put up 60+ wins but had 10+ losses to under .500 teams, but beat all the best teams (hawks 4-0, lakers 3-1).

Three sources are running with the news that CBA will NOT allow opt-out clauses. Also the league is banned from signing any player who is under contract by an NBA team... so basically only allowing the current free agents. They gave a list of eligible players to each team.

Matt - Democrats stink, they just complain about everything and solve nothing Zippittyay - agree, the tug on the shoulder/elbow would be an issue...if the injury happened before this meeting, but the injury happened after. I agree 100% bout rondo being self conscious and taking things to heart. It def could have messed wit him but these problems started in 2007/2008 season when teams took their best defender and they played away from Rondo.

Take this as you may. I lived in Houston for two years (2008-2010) and I took road trips from Houston to Boston twice a year and my boss in Texas told me to be careful in Beaumont because their police are famous for doing unlawful events. They have been known to pull over 18 wheeler trucks and confiscating money and personal items from truck drivers. The police down south are corrupt, or can be corrupt and I wouldn't doubt it if the club owner and police officer were buddies. Having said this, i agree with Perkins party however, it did take a little while to get this information out... but we will see what happens.

It's possible you've erased this fact from your memory, but Michael Olowokandi did play a couple of seasons in Boston. Olowokandi was born on April 3, 1975 in Lagos, Nigeria. His father was a diplomat who eventually moved to London.... Continue reading

AWESOME READ!!! I WAS GOING TO DO THIS STUFF ON MY OWN SITE TOO! I am almost done with the Book of Basketball and im glad i read The Breaks first because Simmons has a lot of references to it. Fantastic read, i love the stories about Lucas, Walton, Monroe, Kermit, etc!

Public enemy #1 is Matt Bonner... he must be destroyed... kidding, none of these guys scare me... Kobe is on his last leg and until Lebron shows up (Wade won that series vs Boston) then I am not worried there either. Want to talk real Boston vilians? Try football or baseball..

Fans are bitter over the existing lockout imposed by the owners of the NBA. We want basketball to happen next season but that doesn’t appear to be a likely scenario. Many writers and insiders are speculating that the owners are... Continue reading
I love your optimism but I can't share it because of the same fact that Billy Hunter pointed out, one of the few times I agree with his comments. He points out that the new wave of owners (GS, Philly) bought into franchise with a promise of Obama (change) in the way business is done, and if Stern can't deliver that.. than he will lose some credibility with the owners. I hope we have a season, or else I will become a football blogger... speaking off... "www.billsarmy" "www.kraftsarmy.com" ?

You are free to express your opinions but i dont think this current model will last into the future, especially the big economic picture here (outside of basketball). I think it needs a harder cap than what is in place and i really would love to see what all these other expenses that are breaking the owners backs because I don't buy it, considering the financial statements (which are not 100% accurate) show that the salaries consume 60-80% of the total expenses. I want to believe that the owners exercised all other options, such as extending notes on their mortgages (stadium, facilities), cut wastes (some of those employees we gripe about losing their jobs, maybe they were wasteful), etc.. but until I sit down with a good 3-5 year history of financials, i won't know what they spend them on. fyi - i have my degree in accounting, which is why i talk like I know what I am doing. I have not been able to see a good stretch of financials, just the one year snap shots that TMZ and Deadspin find.
