    Dec 6, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Fans love to talk about the amnesty clause — the idea of just wiping away one of your GMs bad contracts is intoxicating. But fans are bound to be disappointed because if even five guys get waived that way this year I’d be surprised. That said, the details of how the amnesty will work are…

    jason-terry-game-5

    Jason Terry may well be the real bellwether for the future of the Dallas Mavericks — do they keep the band together and try to win one more or start building for the future fast. Terry — the perennial sixth man of the year candidate — is set to make $10.7 million in this, the…

    New Jersey Nets forward Outlaw celebrates after scoring against the Toronto Raptors during triple overtime in their NBA game in London

    Dec 6, 2011, 1:44 AM EDT

    Sixers_Mascot_Choices

    I don’t think there were many ideas that would make Sixers fans long for the return of Hip Hop. If you forgot, Hip Hop was the Sixers mascot that nobody really liked. So much so that after polling season ticket holders about the game-day experience the new Philadelphia owners axed him. But they commissioned new…
