Justin Jackson, Kennedy Meeks Press Conference Transcripts

Who is the most competitive guy on your team during practice? Justin Jackson: "I'm going to have to say Joel James. He can get a little heated sometimes. Maybe it's just him being so big, it's kind of intimidating for me. But I think everybody honestly this year, it's a whole different level of everybody wanting to win, all the competitions, everything we do in practice." (Tar Heel Blog)

Nets' Wayne Ellington still healing, growing after his father's murder

Few things can ease the heartache that sometimes overcomes Wayne Ellington, 27, any time he thinks about his father being gunned down on the streets of Philadelphia last November. But being merely a short trek up the turnpike from his loved ones now can aid in the healing process, and it's one of the reasons the 6-4, 200-pound small forward decided to sign with the Nets in July.

Isaiah Hicks turns rumors into reality at Late Night with Roy

Why re-signing Danny Green will pay off for Spurs

One of the most decisive decisions the Spurs front office had to make this offseason was whether to re-sign Danny Green to big deal or let him hit free agency. The Spurs ultimately decided to re-sign Green to a 4-year, $45 million deal. Many experts around the league initially thought the number was too high for Green's services, but a closer look at his impact on the overall game shows those figures are about right. (KSAT.com)

Michael Jordan's mansion will trash talk you, too (video)

As most basketball fans know, former Chicago Bulls shooting guard, and Hall of Fame inductee, Michael Jordan was known as one of the game's greatest trash talkers during his time in the NBA.

Warriors forward Harrison Barnes to be restricted free agent at season's end

Golden State general manager Bob Myers announced that Warriors forward Harrison Barnes will not be signing a contract extension before the Nov. 2 deadline.

UNC Player Preview: Kenny Williams

The one position where North Carolina needs the most help is at shooting guard. Enter freshman Kenny Williams, who comes to UNC with the reputation as a deadly three-point threat, but can do much more. A quick slasher and a solid shooter, Williams can score from deep and in the midrange. To gain minutes, Williams will have to adapt to defenses that are bigger and faster. (Carolina Blue)

911 Call: ‘I’m Hiding in the Office,’ Says Store Clerk When Bucks Player John Henson Comes to Shop

Time to add another item to the already long list of things that black people cannot do: buy a Rolex. Buying a Rolex is supposed to be a happy occasion. Especially for the Milwaukee Bucks’ John Henson. He’s 24. He’s a baller. He has some cash to burn. And it would have been his first Rolex. (The Root)
