This snappily titled post is, in essence, an update to the earlier similarly titled one that detailed the best remaining free agents in the world of basketball. The list was designed to be comprehensive – which is why Greg Buckner […]

August 12th, 2010

Last year, I wrote a couple of posts under the heading of “Creative Financing in the NBA.” Inspired by seeing a series of quirky salary techniques that I had not previously seen in my three long and sexless years of compiling NBA salary information, I was inspired to steal Magic GM Otis Smith’s favoured phrase […]

The best of what's left
July 30th, 2010

Shaq and LeBron in a twat-off The international basketball market is incredibly dry right now, and there’s a lot more produce than buyers.

Even Italian teams, including four time defending champion Montepaschi Siena, are facing […]

A History Of Failed Physicals
July 26th, 2010

The following post will features as many Head puns as I can think of, with varying degrees of subtlety.

Much like the Chinese Basketball Association, it is interesting for three main reasons; 1) It’s full of import players that you’ve heard of, 2) The domestic players’ talent level is pretty bad, 3) The import players’ talent level is pretty good. This leads to huge […]

2010 Summer League Rosters: Detroit Pistons
July 18th, 2010

Patrick Christopher Christopher is a streak shooter out of Cal who doesn’t do a whole lot else. If he’s hot, he can score 30; if he’s not, he can go 3-15. Regardless of whether he’s making them, he takes them, which could be interpreted as a good or a bad thing. He’s athletic and strong, […]

2010 Summer League Rosters: Cleveland Cavaliers
July 17th, 2010

Jerome Dyson There was a time when averaging 20/5/5 at UConn meant a guarantee to be drafted. Not so for Dyson. For all the scoring numbers, Dyson is far from a complete scorer; for all the assist numbers, Dyson is far from a point guard. And at 6’3, he’ll struggle to be a shooting guard […]
