  2. Video: What the heck has gotten into Josh McRoberts?

    Apr 7, 2012, 3:03 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    First there was this: Now from the Lakers loss to the Rockets we have this: Look, I know what to expect from McRoberts — hustle, fundamental solid play, some rebounds and hustle points. But spin move three pointers and steals for the breakaway dunk? Who does he think he is, Von Wafer? If Von Wafer…

    Heat small forward James reacts after the Heat tied the game with the Spurs in the second half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while buying the paintings of a squirrel… Heat 120, Spurs 98: It was a tale of two halves. In the first half the Spurs controlled the tempo and forced the heat into the half court. LeBron James, fighting a cold that might have kept him home if Dwyane Wade could have played,…

    NBA basketball spaulding

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least. This post is your one-stop shop for up-to-date, breaking info on what is happening around the league. (If…

  5. Video: Harden, Von Wafer highlights from Louisiana

    Aug 15, 2011, 9:59 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Last weekend was the Lake Charles Tournament of the Star in Lake Charles, Louisiana. That’s old school Cajun country where you can get some tasty alligator dishes at local restaurants. And each summer, you can see some pretty good run at Tournament of the Stars pro-am. This year Glen “Big Baby” Davis was there, Von…

  6. Today’s NBA to Europe roundup: Turkoglu to Turkey?

    Aug 5, 2011, 1:53 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    There are so many NBA players talking to and signing with overseas teams it can be hard to keep up. That’s why we give you easy-to-follow bullet points — because we care about you. • When EuroBasket ends (mid-September) if the lockout still looks like it does now Hedo Turkoglu may sign to play in…

  7. LeBron James misses free throw as Celtics top Heat for third time

    Feb 13, 2011, 4:06 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    If you hate LeBron James, as much of the Western world does, today was quite a day for you. After being largely the only reason the Miami Heat were even in the game against the Boston Celtics, James clanged the first of two free throws down two with ten seconds left, then failed to save…

  8. Danny Ainge confirms Celtics are looking for deadline trade

    Feb 9, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    If Marquis Daniels had not suffered a freakish, scary injury last week, the Boston Celtics very likely would have ridden out the trade deadline and watched every other team try to match what they already have. Right now, Boston is the rabbit every team is trying to catch (even San Antonio, Boston scares teams more…

  9. Delonte West on locker room fight: nothing to see here, move along

    Nov 1, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Delonte West

    Delonte West addressed the media on a locker-room brawl with Von Wafer last week, saying it’s all good. Don’t know why you’re all worked up about it. It was no big deal that I just jumped a guy in the locker room. Not sure I can swallow all of that, but are the quotes, via…

  10. Doc Rivers talks Celtics locker room fight. Was Von Wafer the leak?

    Oct 30, 2010, 5:54 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/33399756" width="420" height="245" fvars="launch=39925742&width=420&height=245" allowscriptaccess="always" allowFullScreen="true" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"/]

    Boston is not a locker room with a lot of leaks. Their entire team identity is built on team unity, they don’t talk about each other behind their backs. The front office doesn’t talk about details much, as you can tell from the Doc Rivers clip above — Delonte West and Von Wafer got in…

  11. Delonte West, Von Wafer fight after Celtics practice

    Oct 29, 2010, 6:46 PM EDT

    Delonte West

    UPDATE#2 6:46 pm: In pregame interviews, Von Wafer told the Boston Globe, “I don’t know nothing about it. First time hearing about it.” Doc Rivers said that there was a fight, “and that’s all you need to know.” UPDATE 4:35 pm: Speaking with the Boston Globe, Celtics GM Danny Ainge confirmed that there had been…

  12. Von Wafer hoping to make final Celtics roster

    Oct 20, 2010, 7:41 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers, Game 7

    The preseason is winding to a close, and according to Scott Souza of the MetroWest Daily News, Celtics swingman Von Wafer hopes that he won’t be one of the last players cut from the team before the first game of the season on Tuesday: After struggling badly at the start of training camp, former Florida…

  13. Tony Gaffney out in Boston, meaning Von Wafer is in

    Oct 4, 2010, 8:22 AM EDT

    Tony Gaffney was on the roster for Boston at the end of last season and through the playoffs, but he couldn’t stick this year. Over the weekend Gaffney was let go by the Celtics and landed a spot playing professionally in Turkey. Which looked beautiful in the shots from the FIBA World Championship, even if…

  14. Quote of the day, where Von Wafer is your cheerleader

    Aug 2, 2010, 4:35 PM EDT

    “I’m just going to go in and try to learn all of the defensive schemes because I know that’s going to be big, depending on how much they utilize me. They haven’t told me a specific role but I’m willing to do anything they ask of me. If they need a cheerleader, that’s fine. If…

  15. Report: Celtics sign Von Wafer to be designated gunner off the bench

    Jul 29, 2010, 7:48 PM EDT

    Von Wafer has never met a shot he didn’t like. That makes him a fan favorite and a coach’s nightmare. Now, he may be Doc River’s problem. Hoopsworld is reporting that the Celtics have signed Wafer to a one year, fully guaranteed minimum deal. Other Celtics sources have yet to confirm this so please drink…

  16. Mavericks work out Von Wafer, but nothing formal yet

    Feb 20, 2010, 10:23 AM EDT

    UPDATE: The Mavs have also brought in Rashad McCants for a look-see. Von Wafer’s been fluttering around the outskirts of the league after returning from Olympiakos in Greece (who you’ll remember as the team former-Hawk Josh Childress plays for). He was rumored to sign with Houston, who he was with last season, then Memphis, and…
