Patty Mills aims to inspire with his children books

The Aussie star is using his success to bring a message to the younger generation. Patty Mills has been a busy man this offseason. In addition to the 4 year, $50 million contract he signed with the Spurs, he recently announced the launch of his new children’s book series “Game Day!” Mills told the Herald Sun’s Peter Rolfe that the book is about his upbringing and different obstacles he encountered throughout his childhood. “Many parts of the books are about not being good at something to begin with but then sticking with it, working hard and making sacrifices to be able to...

Lakers Free Agency Rumors: Lakers sign Thomas Bryant to 1-year, guaranteed deal with team option

Lakers Free Agency Rumors: Lakers sign Thomas Bryant to 1-year, guaranteed deal with team option

The Lakers’ offseason might be over now. The Los Angeles Lakers’ roster has finally bumped up to 14 following the signing Thomas Bryant, reports Shams Charania of The Vertical. Signing their second-round pick was one of the last bits of bookkeeping the Lakers’ front office had to settle before heading into the summer sunset. The Lakers signed Bryant to a one-year, guaranteed contract that includes a team option for the 2018-2019 season, according to Charania. The front office once again leaves itself in the best position possible when it comes to salary cap space next summer. Bryant...
NBA free agency 2017: Orlando Magic sign Marreese Speights

NBA free agency 2017: Orlando Magic sign Marreese Speights

The veteran big man can stretch the floor. The Orlando Magic announced Thursday they have signed Marreese Speights. Speights, 29, has carved out a solid career as a journeyman backup big man, one with rebounding and, of late, three-point ability. He figures to provide depth behind Nikola Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo, the Magic’s only other two true big men. He may also contend for minutes with Khem Birch, the other new Orlando big. Speights spent the previous season with the Los Angeles Clippers, averaging 8.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.3 made three-pointers per game in 15.7 minutes....

It’s Time to talk about retiring Nick Collisons Oklahoma City Thunder jersey

A Thunder mainstay, Nick Collison will presumably retire following the upcoming season It’s time we talk about retiring Nick Collison’s jersey at the end of the season. Although his future in the NBA after this coming season is still in question, it certainly seems as though this will be the swan song for the big man. For as long as the Oklahoma City Thunder have been a “thing,” Nick Collison has been a member of Thunder. Hell, he was even a member before they became the Thunder. In fact, now that Durant is gone, he is the last remaining carryover from the Seattle Supersonics, and...

Watch Tim Duncan stay in shape with an MMA workout

If you thought Tim Duncan would just hibernate forever, you were wrong Like all Spurs fans, I miss Tim Duncan, and every time I get a little glimpse into what Timmy is doing after retirement, I get excited. But because it’s not commonly known what Timmy does with his free time, he could have decided to hibernate until his next public appearance in 2031, and we’d be none the wiser. But it turns out that Timmy has been working out. In fact, here he is doing some mixed martial arts training, courtesy of Leading Sports Media on Twitter: Tim Duncan is enjoying retirement ...

Lakers News: Rob Pelinka compares the young Lakers’ development to Taylor Swift, seriously

The Lakers are ready to shake off years of lows. If there’s one thing we’ve learned about new Los Angeles Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka, it’s that he likes to tell a good story. Whether it’s how signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is akin to manna from heaven or how Kobe Bryant measures up to historical artists like Michelangelo and Shakespeare, the man captivates with his eccentricity. Add a new one to Pelinka’s greatest hits. The upbeat Lakers’ general manager joined The Dan Patrick Show Thursday morning and was asked about the timeline he envisions for the Lakers to become...

Lakers Free Agency Rumors: Rob Pelinka says Lakers 'final plan' is signing two superstars next summer

They’re positioned to do so, but this could still be tough to pull off. The path forward for the Los Angeles Lakers is becoming pretty clear, especially after the D’Angelo Russell trade. Rob Pelinka and Magic Johnson are pushing their chips into the middle of the table in a gamble to hopefully give an immediate boost to the organization after next year’s free agency window. Pelinka appeared on “The Dan Patrick Show” and put this plan in no uncertain terms, when asked about the direction of the organization. This after comparing the Lakers’ current state to a 16-year-old Taylor...

Justise Winslow on Kyrie Irving: “He's going to get traded.”

Justise Winslow on Kyrie Irving: “He's going to get traded.”

Winslow would love being Irving’s teammate, but Dan Gilbert makes the final decision. In an article by Ira Winderman, Justise Winslow gives a very thoughtful and wise perspective on fellow Duke alumni Kyrie Irving’s situation in Cleveland. I'm good friends with Kyrie, but it's not really like free agency. Kyrie doesn't really have a huge say-so in where he goes. He's going to get traded. So a lot of it is not in his hands, but I would love to play with Kyrie. I hope Winslow get his wish, if the Miami Heat can work out a mutually agreeable deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Later on...

NBA free agency 2017: Arron Afflalo picks no. 4 for Orlando Magic

NBA free agency 2017: Arron Afflalo picks no. 4 for Orlando Magic

The veteran swingman has selected a familiar number. When Arron Afflalo suits up for the Orlando Magic in his second stint with the team—he signed a new deal Thursday, after bouncing around four teams in three seasons since leaving Orlando the first time—he’ll do so wearing a familiar uniform number. The Magic announced Thursday Afflalo has selected uniform no. 4, which he wore for the club in 2012/13 and 2013/14. Fortunately for Afflalo, Elfrid Payton gave up that number to switch to no. 2, which he wore in college. Afflalo is arguably the best Magic player to ever wear no. 4,...

Salary Cap Update: Reviewing the Raptors right now... and later

The off-season looks to be wrapping up, so let’s look at where we are now, and look ahead to next summer. Not much has changed since the last update we did, except for the Raptors looking like they are finished, happy to sit nominally below the tax line, with flexibility to add some salary later in the season. In his recent press conference, Masai Ujiri made it clear that the major moves were finished, suggesting the team might sign a couple of non-guaranteed players (camp invitees), and that the rest of the summer was in GM Bobby Webster’s hands. So it looks like Toronto is probably...

Koby Altman’s first decision as GM could be his most important

Koby Altman’s first decision as GM could be his most important

A trade for Kyrie seems imminent, what Altman does with him could decide the future of the franchise. Koby Altman is in a less-than ideal situation. Kyrie Irving wants out. LeBron James could leave in a year. And the Cavs are strapped for resources as they look to improved their roster enough to compete with the Warriors. Altman is replacing David Griffin and he has some brilliant shoes to fill. Griffin was on the brink of acquiring Paul George for the Cavaliers before the Indiana Pacers backed out at the last second. Dan Gilbert refused to pay Griffin the money he is worth and has earned...

Lakers News: Lamar Odom’s sobering story about his cocaine addiction, near-death experience in Nevada

Lakers News: Lamar Odom’s sobering story about his cocaine addiction, near-death experience in Nevada

Odom opens up about nearly losing his life in 2015. In October of 2015, as the Los Angeles Lakers were in the midst of preseason during Kobe Bryant’s final season in the NBA, everything around the franchise came to a pause. Lamar Odom was in a coma, found unconscious in a brothel in Nevada after a drug binge that nearly killed him. The news hit the Lakers hard, with Kobe and childhood-friend Metta World Peace taking the news the hardest. It seemed unlikely that Odom would make it out of the dire situation alive, but somehow, someway, he did. Fast forward to June of 2017, and Odom’s...
