    So many things can happen to high-school phenoms. Kobe Bryant is a five-time NBA champion. LeBron James is a two-time MVP. Dwight Howard is the best center in basketball. Sebastian Telfair is a mediocre backup point guard who has bounced around the league. Jeremy Tyler is currently trying to pay his dues in the D-League.…

    The Suns dropped their final preseason game on Thursday, and unfortunately for them, the result was a familiar one. The Nuggets cruised to a second straight blowout victory over Phoenix, but this one was far more humbling for the Suns, considering that Nene, Al Harrington, and Ty Lawson all sat this one out due to…

    nash-warmup

    The NBA lockout was resolved just in time to still give us a season, but it’s a 66-game schedule that’s jam-packed into a little over three and a half months. That’s something all teams are going to be forced to deal with, but in Phoenix, where two of the team’s best players in Steve Nash…

  7. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  9. Report: Suns “close” to signing Sebastian Telfair

    Dec 8, 2011, 11:39 AM EDT

    Sebastian Telfair

    The Suns dealt for Aaron Brooks at last season’s trade deadline, in hopes that he might be a long-term solution at point guard for the team — both as a backup to Steve Nash, and possibly as his someday-replacement. Brooks was to be a restricted free agent this season, and while it’s unclear whether or…

    Arron Afflalo

    Our daily list of things you should know about that didn’t fit in our other posts. Who is the most coveted free agent not over 6’11? Arron Afflalo of the Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

    Cappie Pondexter

    Friday, the final day of the Impact Competitive Training Series, was a super casual little run that really didn’t offer much. The small crowd was silent. Except where WNBA star Cappie Pondexter took it to Sebastian Telfair. If you don’t know Pondexter, she is a two-time All WNBA first team guard now of the New…

  12. Sebastian Telfair wants to play for a contender. Don’t we all?

    Sep 16, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Sebastian Telfair

    Sebastian Telfair will be a free agent when the lockout ends, and there will be some demand for him to come in as a backup point guard. The man will get paid. Maybe not as much as he hoped under whatever the new labor deal looks like, but he will get paid. But of course,…

    Sebastian Telfair

    For once, the conversation among NBA players in Vegas wasn’t who was headed to Tao. Like it was everywhere NBA people gathered, the talk was about the stalled talks. The implosion of hope surrounding the NBA labor negotiations. At the Impact Competitive Training Series in Las Vegas, players were talking about it and where that…

    A couple of weeks ago a report leaked out that the Knicks and Timberwolves were talking about a trade package to bring Sebastian Telfair to New York to back up Raymond Felton.

    UPDATE 3:14 pm: The reports are in from the specialist Ridnour saw and it is just a strained hamstring, nothing torn or more severely injured, according to a tweet from Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune.
