Tony Parker is back and France will be looking to retain the title at the European Basketball Championship that starts over the weekend in four cities across the continent. Originally scheduled to be held in Ukraine, the competition was moved because of the unrest in the east European country and will be spread around before the medal round in France. Four teams from each of the six-team groups will advance to the knockout stage in Lille, France, which will host the final on Sept. 20.

The internet is filled with hundreds of thousands of nostalgic tales, but that?s to be expected. As a wise man once said, ?Nostalgia is a mild form of depression,? and everyone can get a little blue when thinking back to 1997. With the summer sun shining, however, we?re in a cheery mood. And with the NBA having settled down after a busy first few weeks of offseason transactions, we thought it best to highlight some random NBA players who may have done their best work a decade or two ago. This isn?t a list of your ?Top 12 File Sharing Services of 2002? or ?27 Ways Britney Ruled the VMAs.? No, this is ? Random Players, NBA Edition We continue with Darius Miles. By 2000, the NBA was ready for 18-year olds to move the needle. [ Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball ] Kobe Bryant, by then just 21 but already coming off of his fourth season, had just been the tipping force in an NBA Finals victory for the Los Angeles Lakers. Kevin Garnett, by then, had been a three-time All-Star while acting as the biggest reason for an extended battle between labor and team owners. Tracy McGrady, barely a starter even in his third season, was about to receive a max contract after a fierce free agent bidding war. The Indiana Pacers, coming off of the team?s first NBA Finals appearance, were about to deal for Jermaine O?Neal to act as the team?s go-to two-way force. Each of these players skipped college for the pros, and heading into the 2000 NBA draft very few had reason to believe that Darius Miles wasn?t going to join this new wave. Even if his time at East St. Louis High hadn?t earned him the sort of plaudits that Garnett, Bryant, and McGrady earned in their high school careers. Even if some of the rumors emanating him from individual team workouts (there was chatter that Miles appeared clueless and even physically limited during some of the most rudimentary drills) weren?t exactly promising. The Los Angeles Clippers, widely regarded as the worst franchise in sports, selected him third overall. It was the highest a prep star had ever gone in the NBA draft, bettering Garnett by two spots. Almost immediately, Miles became a martyr. Charles Barkley, in his second-ever appearance as a TNT employee, lit into the Clipper organization, lamenting the fact that the Clippers routinely made money while losing heaps of games and letting their best players run off in free agency, telling the Turner crew that ?people assume that every organization is trying to win, and there's just no excuse for what the Clippers have been doing? and that ?I don?t think the Clippers are a good environment for Miles.? He may ? he may have been right. This isn?t to say the Clippers overreached. The 2000 draft is, at the very best, the second-worst draft in NBA history, so it isn?t as if the Clippers were wrong in selecting an 18-year old with huge hands, huge wingspan, a 6-9 frame, obvious handle and massive hops in Darius. Orlando, settling into its rebuilding project, wanted Miles and outlined a trade that offered up the fifth pick (presumed to be Marcus Fizer), Corey Maggette, and the tenth overall selection later in the round ? a pick that turned into Rookie of the Year Mike Miller. The Magic were out to cut salary as they chased down Tim Duncan, Grant Hill and McGrady in free agency, to be sure, but they did want Darius. Whether Los Angeles general manager Elgin Baylor was picking on Orlando?s behalf has been up for conjecture for 15 years, but the potential deal was scuttled when Bulls GM Jerry Krause (only out to ruin things, with Elton Brand already at power forward for Chicago) selected Fizer at No. 4 in the hopes that he would receive a similar offer. The Clippers would be stuck with Miles, Krause received no offers and Chicago continued to stink, while Orlando missed out on Duncan, signed a broken Hill and wasted McGrady?s prime years. The whole night should have acted as an omen. Any omen would seemingly be doubled-down upon when autumn showed up. Not only did Miles make the cover of Sports Illustrated?s season preview, he was pictured alongside Kevin Garnett in seemingly the final pose KG ever made without mean-mugging:

(Reuters) - Derrick Rose, the 2011 National Basketball Association Most Valuable Player, is being sued by a former girlfriend who alleges he and two friends drugged and gang-raped her in 2013. Rose's accuser, identified only as Jane Doe, said she and the three-time All-Star Chicago Bulls guard dated from 2011 to 2013. In August 2013, she said, Rose and two friends invited her to Rose's home in Beverly Hills, California, where they slipped a drug into her drink with the aim of raping her.

Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose strenuously denied Thursday "meritless" claims that he raped an ex-girlfriend, saying the accusation was just an attempt to make money. In a lawsuit filed on Wednesday the unnamed woman said she was gang-raped by Rose and two others after the group attended a party at a Beverly Hills home in August 2013. "This is nothing more than a desperate attempt to shake down a highly respected and successful athlete," said a statement issued on Rose's behalf by lawyer Lisa Cohen.

As the summer wears on, with training camps and preseason play still off in (what feels like) the distant future, we turn our attention to the past. Join us as we while away a few late-summer moments recalling some of the most scintillating slams of yesteryear, the most thunderous throwdowns ever to sear themselves into our memories. This is Dunk History . Today, Paul Palladino looks back at Rajon Rondo's knifing one-handed slam against the Orlando Magic in Game 2 of the 2009 Eastern Conference semifinals. From Kobe to LeBron to Carmelo, some names seem destined for greatness. Rajon Rondo certainly feels like one of them; between the alliteration and internal rhyming, it's truly poetic. Add in the obvious connection to John "Hondo" Havlicek, and you have a name tailor-made for the spotlight in Boston. During his first three years in the NBA, Rondo was best known for his passing and defense. After battling for playing time with Sebastian Telfair as a rookie, Rondo claimed the starting spot in his second season, when Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen joined Paul Pierce to transform the Boston Celtics into title favorites. He hinted at a flair for the dramatic with moves like his signature behind-the-back pass fake and his 2008 dunk on Jason Maxiell of the Detroit Pistons. In a supporting role to the Big Three, however, Rondo split time with veteran Sam Cassell during the team?s run to the 2008 NBA title. In the postseason, his playing time fluctuated depending on matchups and who had the hot hand. With Garnett out of the lineup for the 2009 playoffs due to a right knee injury, Rondo took center stage as the Celtics tried to defend their title. In a seven-game victory over the Chicago Bulls in the first round, Rondo averaged 19.4 points, 11.6 assists and 9.3 rebounds in 45.3 minutes per game. After the Celtics dropped Game 1 of the conference semifinals against the Orlando Magic, Rondo responded with a 15-point, 18-assist, 11-rebound triple-double to even the series . The highlight of the 112-94 blowout victory came when Rondo received a pass at the top of the key, took one dribble in the paint and took flight with Defensive Player of the Year Dwight Howard in sight. Marv Albert?s call quickly goes from a run-of-the-mill play to the frenzy that ensues when a 6-foot-1 point guard dunks on the league?s best defender and most imposing figure: At first glance, the dunk might not seem all that impressive, but the details add up. At his peak, Rondo has the ball at the top of the square on the backboard:

The NBA is a smarter league now. Even if things are about to get silly. The league?s salary cap, benefiting from an influx of new television money, is set to hit around the $90 million mark (and possibly more) in 2016. It will shoot well over the nine-figure in 2017, and the league?s players, executives, owners, media and fans are all well aware of this. [ Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball ] News about the impending TV money has been around since the 2014 offseason, and this is why the outrage of a then-so-so player like Gordon Hayward signing a four-year, $63 million contract that summer was so brief. It?s why the four-years and $52 million handed to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, a small forward who didn?t take a single three-pointer last season, was referred to in many circles as the bargain of the 2015 offseason. Everybody, it seems, understands the finances. And because the NBA and its teams have collectively bargained themselves into a place where one team can?t set the league on fire with a bit of free agency trickery ? though Houston and Dallas have tried in recent years ? the figures won?t pin your ears back even with all the cash that is flowing around. That wasn?t the case in 1989, when the Cleveland Cavaliers signed John ?Hot Rod? Williams to a contract that genuinely infuriated just about everyone involved. Williams had come off the bench in all but 10 of the Cavaliers? games the season prior, though he was a valuable contributor in averaging 11.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 25.9 minutes a contest. Cleveland had lost to the Chicago Bulls in the first round that year in an upset, but this was still one of the NBA?s best young teams. And deepest, with the 26-year old Williams leading the charge off the pine. The Miami Heat, coming off of a 15-win expansion season that saw them feature a player payroll of merely $3.4 million, was looking to augment its young roster. They dialed in on Williams, a restricted free agent whose defense-first game would pair nicely next two the scoring touch of center Rony Seikaly. What they offered blew everyone away. Seeking to approach the NBA?s minimum salary floor of $9.6 million, the Heat offered Williams $26.5 million over seven years. The front-loaded contract would start at $5 million. Faced with losing their versatile defensive big man, charged with remaining a championship contender while watching a sometimes-brittle Brad Daugherty and aging Larry Nance run the floor as starters, the Cavs felt they had no choice but to match the terms. So they did, making Hot Rod the second-highest paid player in the first year of the deal. Not the second-highest on the Cavs, and not in the NBA. In all of sports. Only Jose Canseco, coming off of a World Series championship, made more at $5.5 million. Immediate reaction was sensible. Here?s Kevin McHale, as quoted by Jack McCallum in Sports Illustrated : ''Higher risks for higher rewards,'' said the Boston Celtics' Kevin McHale, a better forward than Williams who will make far less ($1.4 million) than Hot Rod this season. ''John Williams played the game by the rules. He waited until his time came, and he hit a home run.'' Ha, just kidding! Everyone just lost their damn minds over the deal. From the same piece : ''I guess just about every team in basketball is upset with Miami,'' said one NBA team executive who asked to remain anonymous. ''What they did was very irresponsible and bad for the league.'' From David Aldridge?s piece in the Washington Post : "Now sometimes you can get too excessive," Washington Bullets owner Abe Pollin said of the Williams deal. "I don't know if we reached that or if we're going to reach that. This particular contract, in my mind, is ridiculous. That kind of money for that kind of player doesn't make any sense. And I would tell my fellow owners that in a meeting. The front-loading is part of it. The entire salary structure as dictated by the salary cap makes some sense, but somehow there's got to be some sense in it other than the cap -- what the worth of a player is in the whole structure of things." For John ?Hot Rod? Williams, a sixth man who made $364,000 the season before, to not only top the Jordan/Magic/Bird triumvirate in terms of salary but also the hallowed income of your Joe Montanas, Wayne Gretzkys and all but one participant in the National Pastime was abhorrent to some. To many. Many that hadn?t seen Hot Rod?s recently-updated resume, we?re guessing. Williams and several of his Tulane teammates made national news in 1985 when they were arrested under suspicion of point shaving. The Cavaliers selected Hot Rod in the second round of the 1985 draft, but he was forced to play two seasons in the minor leagues while awaiting and working through trials that could have led to his NBA banishment. After one mistrial, Williams was acquitted of all charges in the second, and he quietly joined the Cavaliers in 1986-87, starting 80 games. That quiet ended when Williams took the Cavaliers to court prior to his free agent turn, arguing that his time spent away from Cleveland based on unfounded charges should go toward his overall NBA tenure, making him an unrestricted free agent. The judge declined, turning Williams into merely a restricted free agent. The judge may have done him a favor. Williams making over 42 percent of the NBA?s $11.8 salary cap in 1989-90 did not cause basketballs to spontaneously explode mid-flight, and it hardly signaled a new era of reckless spending. The league was benefitting from a salary cap it imposed in 1984, the implementation of ?Bird Rights? that allowed teams to go over the soft cap in order to retain free agents (enhancing team chemistry and consistency), and the players were benefitting from the 53 percent of the pie guarantee that NBPA leader Larry Fleisher negotiated for in 1988. Both were about to benefit from the slow and steady influx of other revenue streams, increased attendance, and above all the money earned from new TV packages with NBC and Turner Sports. Hot Rod never put Cleveland over the top, and in 1995 he was dealt to Phoenix for quite the price: Dan Majerle, a younger player that made the All-Star Game the previous season, and a first-round pick that turned into Brevin Knight. By 1995-96, the final year of Williams? front-loaded deal, he was well underpaid at $2.5 million. A few weeks after Hot Rod?s contract expired, Michael Jordan would take his rightful place atop the NBA?s salary list at over $30 million for 1996-97. Phoenix then re-signed Williams as an unrestricted free agent in 1996 for $4.1 million, in hopes to battle new Laker center Shaquille O?Neal. Shaq had just signed a seven-year, $120 million deal: $93.5 million more than the seven-year deal Williams signed just seven years earlier. He signed one last weird contract ? a three-year, $3.6 million deal at age 36 with the pre-Mark Cuban Dallas Mavericks in 1999 ? but only made it 25 games into that contract before being let go. Dallas would go on to use that lingering contract in trades, and Williams finally hung it up in the fall of 2000 after being cut in Boston Celtics camp. And, over 25 years on, we can safely conclude that John ?Hot Rod? Williams? contract didn?t kill the league, and that the NBA isn?t crazy. (Unless it signs Bradley freakin? Beal to the max.)

You?re in your second semester of AP Basketball History, you love really good teams, and you love lists. With precious little drama left in the NBA?s 2015 offseason, why don?t we hit the barroom and/or barbershop, pour ourselves a frosty mug of Barbicide, and get to arguin? over each franchise?s most formidable starting five-man lineup. [ Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball ] Because we don?t like making tough decisions, the lineups will reflect the All-NBA line of thinking. There will be no differentiation between separate forward and guard positions, and the squads will be chosen after careful consideration of individual merits only ? we don?t really care if your team?s top shooting guard and point guard don?t get along. These rankings will roll out based on when each franchise began its NBA life. We continue with the Toronto Raptors, a team with a rather boisterous fan base. C: Antonio Davis . One of the rare ?we need to trade for an old guy before this gets out of hand? transactions that actually worked, Davis was dealt for the prep prize of the 1999 NBA draft (Jonathan Bender, a fantastic talent whose body betrayed him) before turning in six rough and tumble seasons with the Raps. Davis waited until age 31 to become a starter in Toronto after years in Indiana, but he bloomed in the role; averaging 12.9 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks while making the 2001 NBA All-Star team. F: Chris Bosh . CB3 upped and fled from Toronto in 2010, but not before cobbling together a sterling career with the Raptors, acting as the needed franchise force as Vince Carter sulked his way out of town. Drafted as a skinny 19-year old in 2003, Bosh still remained quite skinny (if we?re honest) but also rather potent on his way toward five All-Star berths and averages of over 20 points, nine rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game with the team in seven seasons. F: Amir Johnson . A top-end role player, Johnson?s longevity won out over several other forward candidates. An expert screen-setter, Johnson also did whatever it took on the defensive end during his seven years with the team, which featured averages of 8.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and a block per game in 25 minutes a contest. And if Raptor fans aren?t happy with this selection, they?re warned to skip the part about who, exactly, Amir beat out ( don?t see below). G: Vince Carter . His exit from Toronto was disgraceful, Carter basically quit on the Raptors at the start of the 2004-05 season prior to forcing a trade to New Jersey that was ridiculously one-sided (Toronto got Alonzo Mourning, who was paid to never play for the team, Aaron Williams and Eric Williams and a draft pick that turned into Joey Graham; Carter went on to average 25 a game in his first season with the Nets). Prior to that, however, Carter acted as the face of a franchise that nearly made the Eastern Conference finals while making five All-Star teams. He averaged 23.4 points a game with the Raps, alongside 5.2 rebounds. G: DeMar DeRozan . It may seem a bit of a stretch to award all-time status to someone who just turned 26, while taking in one (dubious, in light of Kyle Lowry?s presence on the Raptors in 2014) All-Star nod along the way, but DeRozan has performed well enough to merit inclusion. He?s averaged over 20 points twice with Toronto and over 17 a game on his six-year career, helping keep the team competitive during times of storm and stress. You don?t like Amir Johnson? Would you prefer, say, Andrea Bargnani? He?s fourth all-time in Raptors history in points, field goals made, and even rebounds. And Andrea Bargnani is a terrible rebounder. Charles Oakley only played three seasons with the Raptors, and Marcus Camby (at center) played just two injury-snagged seasons with the team. Morris Peterson might be ?Mr. Raptor? at this point, but it is important to remember that while it felt like he did play for the Raptors for ages on end, he truly only spent seven years with the franchise (averaging 12 points per game along the way). DeRozan?s 2015-16 campaign will be his seventh with the team. Mo Pete was a sane, steady presence at a time when the Raptors needed it most. Doug Christie was a little more off-kilter, but absolutely nobody guarded Michael Jordan better during his second run of championships with the Chicago Bulls, and Doug averaged 14 points per game in over 300 contests with the Raps. Alvin Williams came into his own with Toronto during the Carter-led peak years, and while his stats (over nine points and four assists a game) won?t astound, he remains rightfully beloved by the fan base. Damon Stoudamire played just over two and a half seasons with the club before requesting a trade, but he won the Rookie of the Year in 1996. Jose Calderon spent eight seasons with Toronto and, we?re assured, only turned the ball over 18 times during his tenure. Kyle Lowry was an All-Star in 2015 and has a chance to displace DeRozan before his career in Toronto is over. That?s our five. Who are you going with?

A jury awarded retired basketball player Michael Jordan $8.9 million in his lawsuit against a grocery store chain that used his name in a one-page magazine advertisement without his permission, the Chicago Tribune and other local media reported. Jordan, 52, led the Chicago Bulls to six National Basketball Association championships in the 1990s. The jury deliberated six hours after a two-week trial in federal court in Chicago, and decided on the award amount on Friday evening.

22 Aug 2015 at 1:05am
NBA legend Michael Jordan was awarded $8.9 million by a Chicago jury on Friday in a case against a supermarket chain which included his name in a promotion without his permission. "I'm pleased with today's verdict," Jordan said in a statement. Dominick's in 2009 used Jordan's name in a commemorative ad in Sports Illustrated when the former Chicago Bulls superstar was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

As we continue to work our way through the endless summer between the Finals and Opening Night, we'll pause each Friday to briefly consider and count down some NBA-related topic of note. We like starting lineups and round numbers, so we'll run through a handful of items each week. With a nod to our friends at Dr. Saturday , welcome to Ball Don't Five . This week's installment: The Top Five Great Teams That Never Won a Title [ Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball] 5. Jerry West?s Los Angeles Lakers This is a cop-out, and not an entirely accurate description to boot. Jerry West?s Los Angeles Lakers won it all in 1972 after steamrolling the league in a regular season that saw the squad win a then-NBA record 69 games, which was nice. For 11 years prior, however, West?s Laker clubs routinely bowed out in the playoffs to either superior St. Louis, San Francisco or Milwaukee clubs, or in the Finals at the feet of the Boston Celtics. That?s 11-straight runs featuring West and Elgin Baylor and eventually Wilt Chamberlain at their peaks, with no ring to show for it until Bill Sharman put the team over the top in 1972.

CHICAGO (AP) -- Closing arguments have been delayed a day in a federal civil trial to decide how much money a grocery-store chain owes former Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan.

18 Aug 2015 at 7:05pm
You?re in your second semester of AP Basketball History, you love really good teams, and you love lists. With precious little drama left in the NBA?s 2015 offseason, why don?t we hit the barroom and/or barbershop, pour ourselves a frosty mug of Barbicide, and get to arguin? over each franchise?s most formidable starting five-man lineup. [ Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball ] Because we don?t like making tough decisions, the lineups will reflect the All-NBA line of thinking. There will be no differentiation between separate forward and guard positions, and the squads will be chosen after careful consideration of individual merits only ? we don?t really care if your team?s top shooting guard and point guard don?t get along. These rankings will roll out based on when each franchise began its NBA life. We continue with the Miami Heat, who like to go big. C: Alonzo Mourning . Pat Riley ? the man that played with Wilt Chamberlain before coaching Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Patrick Ewing ? got to Miami in 1995, saw Matt Geiger?s name in the starting lineup, and said ?nah.? Riles quickly dealt for a previously-disgruntled Alonzo, making him the face of the Heat and ensuring he had yet another franchise center to work with, Injury, the Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks and a frightening kidney disease (and eventual transplant) prevented Mourning from leading the Heat to a title or putting up gargantuan stats, but he still made five All-Star teams with the club while averaging 16 points, eight rebounds, and 2.7 blocks in under 30 minutes a game. He probably should have won the MVP during the NBA?s lockout year in 1999. F: LeBron James . For Miami fans (the ones that haven?t left the building with two minutes to go in an eight point game, at least), James? stay in South Beach was too brief, and possibly unfulfilling. It?s hard to imagine that a team led by James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh could only cobble together two championships in four tries, but four consecutive Finals trips (once over a Bulls team that led the NBA in wins, alongside two Game 7 wins in the East finals) is no joke. LBJ averaged 26.9 points, 7.6 rebounds, 6.7 assists and a combined 2.4 blocks/steals with the Heat, prior to moving back to Cleveland to work on that whole ?legacy? thing. F: Chris Bosh . It might seem like a stretch (no pun intended) just five years after he left Toronto for Miami, but it?s hard to ignore Bosh?s all-around play as both a borderline role player (with All-Star level talent, and All-Star berths to boot) and go-to scorer. Bosh had to not only take a back seat to James and Dwyane Wade in his time in Miami, but he also had to re-do his game and abandon the low post and screen and roll sets that constantly fed him in Toronto. Currently working with averages of 17.8 points and 7.3 boards as a member of the Heat. G: Dwyane Wade . The greatest player in Heat history, thankfully, will remain with the team for at least the next few years. Drafted by the squad in 2003, Wade helped lead the team out of the deep lottery and into the playoffs in his first year, nearly to the NBA Finals in his second, and to a championship in his third year. He?s got three rings now, a litany of All-Star berths and career/Heat averages of 24.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 2.8 combined blocks/steals. G: Tim Hardaway . An overweight Hardaway was a reclamation project when Riley traded for him at the 1996 trade deadline. He?d recently shown only sparks of the flash that made him such a devastating player prior to the ACL tear that cost him all of 1993-94, and was an expiring contract that Riley only gave up other expiring contracts for while Riles eyed Gary Payton?s impending free agency. Charged with leading the Heat after GP declined Riley?s overtures, Hardaway went on to lead the team to an Eastern final in his second season and finished his Heat career with averages 17.3 points, 7.8 assists and just 2.7 turnovers per game. Pat Riley has run the team for 20 of its 27 seasons, and his method of building teams ? shoot for the stars, surround with role players later ? has made the Heat an odd roster curio over the years (it's hard to argue with three rings, we insist). The team has featured a series of former great players, former All-Stars and future Hall of Famers, but none of them (from types like Rod Strickland, Rony Seikaly, Eddie Jones, Anthony Mason, Jamal Mashburn, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Kevin Willis and even Shaquille O?Neal) managed to stick around long enough to merit consideration. If any two members of the franchise have a major beef, it would be Udonis Haslem and Glen Rice. Rice never made an All-Star team with the Heat, but that tends to happen when you?re asked to carry an expansion team out of the muck. The Michigan product still managed a 19.3 points per game average before being traded for a package that brought Miami Mourning, leading the team to two playoff berths along the way. Haslem, meanwhile, has acted as the team?s no-stats All-Star for years, playing expert help and screen and roll defense while working as the franchise?s all-time leading rebounder. That?s our five. Who are you going with?

By Fiona Ortiz CHICAGO (Reuters) - Basketball superstar turned billionaire pitchman Michael Jordan took the stand in federal court on Tuesday to testify in his lawsuit seeking millions from a grocery chain that used his name and jersey number in an ad, without permission. Jordan claims he should be paid $10 million, which he says is fair market value for a full page ad in a 2009 Sports Illustrated commemorative magazine celebrating his career, taken out by now-defunct Dominick's Finer Foods, a division of Safeway. A judge previously ruled that Dominick's is liable for using Jordan's identity without his permission.

ShaquMlle O'Neal weighed into basketball's great debate on Tuesday when he backed a young Michael Jordan to beat LeBron James one-on-one -- but added that both were outshone by the legendary Dr. J. O'Neal, visiting Hong Kong to promote an energy drink, faced both Jordan and James in their prime and when asked who would win a hypothetical match-up, he didn't hesitate. "Mike," said O'Neal, winner of four NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers (2000-2002) and the Miami Heat (2006).

The Golden State Warriors will see an old friend on opening night and LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in an NBA Finals rematch on Christmas, two of the highlight games of their title defense. The NBA released its schedule Wednesday, a more player-friendly model that addresses Commissioner Adam Silver's directive for additional player rest by slashing the times teams have to play four times in five nights to an average of one per team.

The internet is filled with hundreds of thousands of nostalgic tales, but that?s to be expected. As a wise man once said, ?Nostalgia is a mild form of depression,? and everyone can get a little blue when thinking back to 1997. With the summer sun shining, however, we?re in a cheery mood.

Steve Nash was just drafted. Gary Payton was out there in Seattle, dominating. Anfernee Hardaway, still technically a point guard! Mookie Blaylock was nailing threes and shutting you down. Ahead of Nash in the Phoenix depth chart were legends Sam Cassell and Kevin Johnson, and Cassell was dealt for Jason Kidd midseason. Kenny Anderson and Nick Van Exel were still working it. Amongst the chief concerns for championship contenders in Houston and New York was the team?s inability to find a star-level point guard to put them over the top. And yet, midway through a season that saw his team miss the playoffs, Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Terrell Brandon took in this accolade :
