If not for that, we’d already be drooling over my countryman’s new paycheck.   The Minnesota Timberwolves sat back and took care of their own business last week, signing Kevin Martin and re-signing Chase Budinger....

Source: Pacers to pursue Earl Clark

  Earl Clark was one of the biggest surprises of last season…well, not if you follow BlogNBAsketball. I always knew that he was more than just a throw-in in that Howard.

Lakers keep Jodie Meeks

  Late last summer, Jodie Meeks signed a modest contract with the Lakers after they had acquired center Dwight Howard. The thinking was, I’d get some real run on a contending team and hopefully find a permanent home.   That title run never came, but Meeks still brought a value to L.A. for his...

The Euroleague offers much better in-game experience than the NBA D-League…..and better much better accommodations, too.   Expect...
