  1. The biggest skill Derrick Williams needs to develop? Passing.

    Arizona v Connecticut

    There’s a number of reasons why this logic is flawed. I’m aware of that going in. When we’re talking about a coach, for some reason, we automatically want to assign the same roles to his or her new team as his or her old team. So for Phil Jackson, Lamar Odom is Horace Grant. For…

  2. Video: Miles Davis, John Lennon play some hoops

    I might have run this video of a John Lennon party with Miles Davis in attendance even if they were not playing hoops. But they are, at about the 5 minute mark, a little 5-3-1. Both have classic two-handed set shot form. Lennon doesn’t even have to put down his cigarette. Which is how Vlade…

    Basketball can bring people together. Fathers and sons. Different races. Different religions. None of that matters on the court.

You can definitely learn from the experience…

  5. Vlade Divac to headline class for FIBA Hall of Fame

    Aug 20, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    The basketball Hall of Fame thing gets confusing. Because just one week ago we had inductions into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, which is the one we Americans tend to think of first. But there is also the FIBA Hall of Fame. And there is no NBA Hall of Fame, it just kind…

  6. It's not just you laughing at David Kahn, Chris Webber is on board, too

    Jul 15, 2010, 11:27 AM EDT

    We’ve struggled to put into words how we perplexed we have been over Minnesota signing Darko Milicic to a four-year, $20 million deal then shipping Al Jefferson out for almost nothing.
