Kyrie Irving draft Getty Images

This is a fantastic profile of No. 1 overall pick Kyrie Irving and what it was like for him growing up.

Here’s a new CBA proposal from a blogger trying to find a balance. At least he is trying to find a middle ground, which is more than we can say for the sides in the negotiating room.

Here is a mock draft for 2012. They have Harrison Barnes on top, although watch for Anthony Davis to pass him.

After the Rockets got a close up look at Jonny Flynn‘s injured hip, they made the Timberwolves throw in another second round pick to make that draft night trade a reality.

Two guesses on who might be the head coach in Minnesota: former Cavs head man Mike Fratello and New Orleans assistant Bryan Gates. The problem for the Wolves, the way they treated Kurt Rambis is going to make a lot of top candidates think twice about coming there.

Marcus Morris just got drafted and he’s already saying he doesn’t want to play defense like Carmelo Anthony.

This is the best breakdown of what you can expect to see from Ricky Rubio in Minnesota out there. He struggles with his shot because of happy feet, but the problems are fixable.

Glen Davis hired a sports psychologist, he thinks LeBron James would benefit from doing the same.

Dirk Nowitzki would not have made a good MLB pitcher.

The mayor of Newark is still pushing to get an NBA team in the Prudential Center after the Nets leave for Brooklyn.

This is a little old, but here is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar taking about LeBron.

    Want a more in-depth look at the top players in the 2012 draft? Here you go, minus Marquis Teague who will play himself out of a lottery spot during the year (just saying):
