  2. SLAM: For Old Time’s Sake: Clyde the Glide
  3. "If there was ever an NBA superstar that flew (pun intended) under the radar, it was Clyde Drexler. Throughout his 15 year career he played on only two teams, The Blazers and Rockets, and earned some great accolades along the way. Drex won a championship with the Rockets in ‘95, played in 10 All Star Games, played on the original Dream Team in ‘92, was named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history, and was inducted into the HOF in 2004. Drex was also the SEC player of the year at Houston in ‘83 (that fro was bananas) and a member of the PHI SLAMA JAMA fraternity along with Hakeem and Larry Micheau."

  4. DIME: Heat Wave: NBA’s Top 10 Scoring Performances Of The Year
  5. "I don’t think anyone expected this to happen. Andre Miller has never really been considered a high scorer, but this 52-point performance was a heat wave if I’ve ever seen one. Miller was dialed in, shooting 71 percent (22-31 from the field and 1-1 from three point land) for this one. The rim must have seemed like an ocean to him, because it seemed as if everything he was putting up was going in."

  6. NYDailyNews: Source: New York Knicks president Donnie Walsh recently rejected deal for Rudy Fernandez
  7. "According to a team source, Knicks president Donnie Walsh recently rejected a three-team deal that would have sent Anthony Randolph to Indiana, a first-round pick to Portland and Fernandez to New York."

  8. Oregon Live: NBA High-5: Kevin Durant is class of Worlds, but can he really become the all-time scoring king?
  9. "Monya was averaging 13.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists for Russia going into its game today. We used to spell his name Sergei Monia when he played for the Blazers in his lone NBA season, 2005-06. The Blazers drafted Monya with the No. 23 pick in 2004, and he signed the following year."

  10. Ball Don't Lie: George Karl has been cleared to coach
  11. "Excellent. Just wonderful, great news for fans of the NBA. You can say what you want about Karl's coaching or the way he acts sometimes, but seeing him back on the sidelines is going to be nice for Denver, the league and everybody who is a basketball fan. Not to mention it's nice for new Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri to have something positive happen for a change. "

  12. ESPN: U.S. on easier side of knockout bracket
  13. "Nicolas Batum and Mickael Gelabale have played well, but Boris Diaw (34 percent shooting, 2-for-14 on 3-pointers) has not. They will have their hands full with a Turkish squad that is one of only three undefeated teams, and the Olympic Dome will be filled with 15,500 Turks vocally supporting a team that handled Greece, Russia and China with relative ease, playing its lone close match against since-departed Puerto Rico."

  14. ESPN: Hawks sign Etan Thomas
  15. "The 6-foot-10 Thomas spent most of his career with the Washington Wizards but finished last season with Oklahoma City. He's averaged 5.8 point and 4.8 rebounds per game over his eight-year career, which includes 74 starts."
