Solar Flares 10/21: Guide To Head Coaches, Trading Gerald Green

And Dan Majerle as John Travolta. Adapting roles to maintain momentum will be a challenge but critical to the success of the 2014-15 Phoenix Suns, writes Paul Coro. It's possible Alex Len may see his first action of the preseason Tuesday against the Lakers at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Len suffered an injury to his right pinky finger on October 6th. "It's a matter of math." "Phoenix will trade Gerald Green." Following Robert Sarver's comments during a Suns preseason game against San Antonio in which the Spurs did not bring Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, or head coach Gregg Popovich to Phoenix,...

Avery Bradley's contract will look like a bargain when it's all said and done

Search on Google for "Avery Bradley overpay" and you'll be pummeled by articles claiming that the Boston Celtics overpaid to re-sign their 23-year-old guard to a four-year, $32 million contract extension. They're all dead wrong. With the rising salary cap and Bradley's ascending skills, the contract could actually turn out to be a bargain for the Celtics. That's because Boston isn't paying for Bradley's past production, but for his expected future performance. Bradley wasn't worth $8 million per the past four seasons, but he might be over the next four. Bradley is coming off of a season...

Expectations high for Mason Plumlee

NEW YORK -- Mason Plumlee may be entering his second season in the NBA, but the Brooklyn Nets are expecting a lot out of him in 2014-15. Plumlee already figured to play a key role off the bench, but might find himself in the starting lineup occasionally given that Brook Lopez has a history of foot injuries and Kevin Garnett is entering his 20th season in the league. Plumlee put in his best performance of the preseason on Monday night at Barclays Center, dominating the undermanned, lottery-bound Philadelphia 76ers to the tune of 20 points and 17 rebounds.

Robin Lopez & Chris Kaman – Determining Playing Time

Just two seasons ago, the Portland Trail Blazers were trotting out J.J. Hickson as their starting center. He generally gave a good effort, yet because of his small size, could never adequately fill the true center role. After the 2012-13 season, General Manager Neil Olshey went out and brought in Robin Lopez, which was both […] Robin Lopez & Chris Kaman – Determining Playing Time - Rip City Project - Rip City Project - A Portland Trailblazers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Thibs: LeBron 'up there with all-time best'

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Tom Thibodeau does not believe it's fair to try to compare LeBron James to other players at this point in his career. After all, James is still just 29 years old and doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon. But that doesn't mean the veteran coach can't heap some heavy praise on James and his prolific, all-around game. "Obviously, what he's done has been great," Thibodeau said Monday before the Bulls' game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The team was without six players, including three starters, for its penultimate preseason contest. Read full article >>
