Is it smart to end morning shootarounds?

Photos by D. Clarke Evans/NBAE via Getty Images It’s been more than 40 years since Bill Sharman invented the morning shootaround.

How to graciously root for a loser

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images I’m a Buffalo Bills fan. I know I’m writing for a basketball blog, and this is the second time I’ve mentioned a different team sport, but if you’ll bear with me for a second, it’ll come together shortly. The Bills — if you don’t know — haven’t made …

Tracy McGrady and unaccountable greatness

Photo by Fernando Medina/Orlando Magic I don’t particularly like baseball. It’s a step-up from college football, but I can’t remember ever watching an entire MLB game after turning 10 years old. Instead, I watched basketball and then went out to my hoop out back and tried to duplicate Michael Jordan’s tongue wag, or the left-handed …

Orlando Magic ‘win’ the second pick

Photo by Fernando Medina/Orlando Magic “With Pat Williams at the helm, did you really think the Orlando Magic were going to lose the ping pong battle? Williams is like a talisman next to a rabbit’s foot in the pocket of a voodoo priest simultaneously sticking pins in makeshift dolls of the other 13 teams.” That’s …

Let Hedo Turkoglu go

Photo by Cameron Browne/NBAE via Getty Images He’s old and slow, but that’s not the only reason Hedo Turkoglu should go. The Orlando Magic are a franchise on the mend after the “put Dwight Howard in the middle and spread the floor with 3-point shooting” experiment ended in recriminations, and finally with Howard getting dealt …
