In December 2011, Brandon Roy decided to retire from the NBA (or was asked to sit out by Portland) due to a degenerative knee condition. Less the a gestational period later, he has decided that the knee isn’t so bad, and he still wants to play.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Poortland Trailblazers have not had the best luck in the NBA Draft in recent years, but it looks like things are starting to look up in PDX! The Blazers took Damian Lillard aka the Omen, aka the Dame, aka the 6’3 PG out of Weber State, with their 6th overall pick in the draft and expectations couldn’t be higher for the young guard.Please, blog, may I have some more?
DeMar DeRozan was the Raptors’ 9th pick in the 2009 draft, but he didn’t even make Adam’s top 200 last year, and rightly so – he shot an abysmal 0.096 from beyond the arc in ’10-’11. A mascot with a fuzzy oversize head could throw beach balls underhanded and display higher accuracy than that.Please, blog, may I have some more?
As you no doubt have heard, Andrew Bynum is the big cheesesteak in Philadelphia’s crusty roll. He just came off a career year with the Lakers and will only be 25 this season, so there are expectations that he will rise above and beyond what he has already done.Please, blog, may I have some more?

The lad turns 23 in September, and thus far he has averaged .540 FG%, .695 FT%, 6.9 RPG and 2.4 BPG.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I get it, Blake Griffin is a physical specimen. He is the best ginger basketball player to surface since Brian Scalabrine. He always puts the toilet seat down. He brings your daughter home by 11 PM. You follow him on twitter, he follows you back.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Before you go drafting some National Basketball Association player like he’s going to win you a fantasy title, you may want to check to make sure the guy is still alive (sorry, Jason Collier). These are the guys who very likely won’t be ready when the season begins:
Avery Bradley (Boston) - He just had surgery on his shoulder last week.Please, blog, may I have some more?
As you should have heard, the City of Angels has acquired the services of one Mr. Stephen John Nash, the greatest Canadian basketball player since Shaquille O’Neal. What? He’s not French-Canadian? Huh. Anyway, Steve Nash has a new team and the Lakers are as happy as a pedophile in a windowless van.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Nothing excites me more than a player who contributes a little bit of everything, yet isn’t particularly strong in any particular area of the game. You know, those quiet players you slot in your utility position who bolster several statistical categories but ask for little in return.Please, blog, may I have some more?
