The Thaddeus Young Trade Was An OK But Sobering Exchange

The Thaddeus Young Trade Was An OK But Sobering Exchange

It's hard to be upset at the Sixers trying to get a draft pick for Thaddeus Young, but it's a sobering reminder of the consequences associated with the Sixers rebuilding strategy. The Sixers were right to trade Thaddeus Young. He's a player who, as much as I like him, will not be around beyond the 2014-15 season. Sam Hinkie and the Sixers were right to get something for him while they could. The pick they got back was a fair return for Young. Not necessarily a great return, as Miami, even with Luol Deng replacing LeBron James, and even with the aging and injury-plagued new "Big 3", should...

Mirza Teletovic goes for 25 points in Bosnia's win over Great Britain

In Bosnia's first game of the EuroBasket qualifying round, Mirza Teletovic made an instant impact. The second year pro exploded for a game high 25 points and grabbed six rebounds in Bosnia's victory over the British Wednesday, 80-67. "The King of Bosnia" hit three three-point shots during the game while leading the Bosnian team in scoring. Teletovic was great in the Bosnians first game, for the British had no way of stopping him without the likes of Luol Deng on the roster to defend him. You can watch some of his highlights here: Looks like the forward has a lot of confidence on his...

Getting to know the new Heat players - Part 3 of 3: Danny Granger

We wrap up our series where we look at new Heat players by talking to the writers that saw them in action while they were with a previous team. Our first post was on Josh McRoberts, then we looked at Luol Deng. Now we conclude with Danny Granger who spent most of his career with the rival Indiana Pacers before ending last season as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. What to think of Danny Granger? He was once an up-and-coming player, an All-Star who seemed primed to lead the Indiana Pacers to playoff success. For some Heat fans, the lingering image of Granger is as an instigator during...
