  2. Columbian: Blazers, celebs turn out for fundraiser
  3. “Brian Grant has always stood for a hope and for a better tomorrow,” said Walton, who played center for the Blazers from 1974-78. “Now that he’s facing the biggest battle of his life, if we don’t stand tall for him, what kind of people are we? I’m proud, honored, privileged and lucky to be here tonight.”

  4. OregonLive: NBA High-5: LeBron James' fingerprints all over the place; Hedo Turkoglu burns bridges; Tim Donaghy's beef with publisher
  5. "I'm not a yes-guy, never have been. I feel like the best way to do things is if I don't agree with you, I'm going to tell you, and I'm going to tell you why. That's just the kind of person I am. I'm going to tell you what I feel, not what you want to hear."

  6. Hoopsvibe: Greg Oden should be ready for training camp
  7. "Trail Blazers center Greg Oden is "positive" that he'll be with the team in training camp this fall. Oden has been working out with Portland strength and conditioning coach Bobby Medina in Indiana recently."

  8. SLAMOnline: Vuvuzelas Banned from FIBA World Championships
  9. "We want fans to enjoy themselves and make lots of noise but not at the risk of spoiling it for others. The vuvuzela is simply not appropriate in a confined space such as a basketball arena. It’s a very loud instrument and some medical experts believe the decibel level and frequency can be harmful to hearing.”

  10. ESPN True Hoop: Revisiting Miami as a basketball town
  11. "See, all the talk about Miami being a football town, or any other town, fails to recognize the truth. Miami is an event town pure and simple. The regular season games, no matter the sport, have a tough time selling out, unless it is an "event game." Unless the Dolphins are playing the Jets, Patriots, Bills, within division, or a marquee team, forget it, some local TV station is going to have to buy the rest of the tickets to avoid a blackout. Same thing with the 'Canes. If it's not UF or FSU, don't count on a sellout. We didn't even have a sell out for the Oklahoma game last year ... "

  12. ESPN: 1992 Olympic champs into Hall of Fame
  13. ""I don't want to say jealous -- he was out of the game before me," Pippen quipped. "He came first, but it would have been nice if I could have went in before him. ... I'm happy to be there and get a chance to experience what it's like to go into the Hall of Fame. It's a great experience.""
