    Adam Morrison

    If you read just one thing today, click the link and read the profile of Adam Morrison by Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated. Morrison has been an NBA punch line for years now, the guy who couldn’t live up to the hype in Charlotte, who won two rings with the Lakers while wearing a suit,…

  2. Vlade Divac on how a war tore apart friendships, basketball in Yugoslavia

    “…we should take it more seriously, because you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow. In this movie, everything seemed nice with our team and our relationship and our country and in one second, everything went upside down. It was a lot of manipulations, a lot of politics. You can definitely learn from the experience…

  3. Nenad Krstic has finger surgery, will miss Thunder training camp

    Sep 21, 2010, 7:59 PM EST

    Oklahoma City had more than just Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in Turkey for the World Championships, there was also Nenad Krstic from Serbia. It was Serbia that sent Spain packing, lost in dramatic fashion to Turkey in the semi-finals and finished fourth after losing the bronze medal game to Lithuania. In that final game,…

  4. Turkey squeaks past Serbia in the FIBA semifinals, will face Team USA in the final tomorrow

    Sep 11, 2010, 8:26 PM EST

    The Serbian national team held the lead virtually throughout their semifinal match with Turkey, but a mini-unraveling over the game’s final minutes and busted defensive coverage on Turkey’s final possession changed everything. Rather than the Serbians finishing their turbulent FIBA run with a finale against the Americans, they’ll be playing for Bronze, while the host…

  5. Do the Timberwolves have a Euro sleeper in Nemanja Bjelica?

    Sep 9, 2010, 1:05 PM EST

    You ever heard of Nemanja Bjelica? Of course not, you have a life and a fantasy football team to obsess over. That’s why teams hire European scouts, to go find guys who might fit in the NBA some day so you don’t have to. Bjelica was a guy who caught interest because he’s 6’10” with…

  6. World Championships roundup: Turkey's fans keep singing, Spain's fans crying over their Tapas

    Sep 8, 2010, 6:45 PM EST

    And it is looking more and more like the gold medal game of the World Championships will be the USA vs. Turkey. Serbia 92, Spain 89: This was an upset — not a massive, Buster Douglas/Mike Tyson upset, but an upset. It was also the fair result, Serbia controlled most of this game, but a…

  7. Nenad Kristic has got your back, whatever the cost

    Sep 7, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    Nenad Krstic did the crime so he was willing to do the time. And he’d do it again (well, maybe not chair part). The Oklahoma City Center is not an in-your-face kind of guy, but when Greece and Serbia ended up in a YouTube favorite brawl, he was the most aggressive Serbian player. He jumped…

  8. World Championships Round of 16: Spain looks good again, Serbia survives

    Sep 4, 2010, 6:57 PM EST

    Saturday was the most interesting day of the round of 16, two very interesting games between three good teams (Spain, Greece and Serbia) and one solid one (Croatia). Here’s a little roundup. Spain 80, Greece 72. There was some pretty basketball early on in this one and it became clear that the team that figured…

  9. Coaches of the Greek and Serbian teams are, shockingly, shocked at FIBA's suspension rulings

    Aug 27, 2010, 10:39 AM EST

    Hey, remember that time a Greece-Serbia friendly broke out into a rootin’, tootin’, chair-throwin’ brawl? When Antonis Fotsis and Sofoklis Schortsanitis went absolutely nuts? Even if you don’t (which you really should — it’s been the most notable moment in the lead-up to the FIBA World Championships), I’m pretty sure the Serbian and Greek players,…

  10. Krstic suspended three games, Greek players two for brawl

    Aug 26, 2010, 1:34 PM EST

    Oklahoma City center Nenad Krstic said he was worried that he would be suspended for his part in a huge Serbia/Greece brawl at a “friendly.” Specifically the throwing the chair part. He was right. FIBA announced suspensions today and Krstic will be out the first three games of the group stage of the World Championships.…

  11. Here's a shocker: FIBA officials are reviewing yesterday's brawl

    Aug 20, 2010, 10:29 AM EST

    Chairs were thrown. Screams were screamed. Sofoklis Schortsanitis probably wrecked a man. Nenad Krstic did some back-pedaling and threw a chair. If you somehow missed the brawl that took place during yesterday’s Greece-Serbia friendly, you’re probably having trouble with this whole internet thing. Just click here, and all of your wildest basketbrawling dreams will be…

  12. Now that was a brawl: Nenad Krstic has been released from prison

    Aug 20, 2010, 8:36 AM EST

    Nenad Krstic had quite the finals of the Acropolis tournament. There were points and rebounds and grabbing Greek forward Antonis Fotsis by the throat and throwing a chair at Greek center Sofoklis Schortsanitis. It earned Krstic, the Oklahoma City center, a night in an Athens jail. He was released the next morning and went back…

  13. Today in overseas basketball brawls: Krstic vs. Big Sofo

    Aug 19, 2010, 6:15 PM EST

      Well, here’s something you don’t see every day. During a “friendly” match between Greece and Serbia’s national teams, a fight broke out between two of the players. There were harsh words, some shoving, and it looks like the Serbian player spit at the Greek one. That led to lots more shoving, halfhearted punching, and…

  14. Now ex-Timberwolf Nathan Jawai to play in Serbia

    Aug 18, 2010, 1:01 PM EST

    Big news: Nathan Jawai, the 2008 second rounder who played for Minnesota last season and Toronto the season prior, will play professionally for BC Partizan in Serbia next season, according to Inside Hoops. It’s only big news because all things with Nathan Jawai are, well, big. The guy’s built like a Winnebago. Jawai is definitely…
