alternate headline: man does job
"Three weeks ago, Tim Hardaway Jr. was on assignment in the NBA Development League.
Now, he has earned his way into the Hawks’ regular rotation with his eighth straight appearance in Wednesday’s 104-98 win over the Trail Blazers."
Good for Tim. Hope he does well and keeps his spot.
They're wearing these on Saturday against Maryland. Yikes.
Let's hope we don't deal with this next year with Nike.
I know some don't want to see this everyday, but we can vote everyday... so here it is again for those who are interested.
He's down to 39% of the vote. Nearing the end of Round 1 and then we'll need to make another big push for Round 2, which begins Monday Jan 25.
I feel like all this recruiting anticipation is making everyone crazy so to help clear your mind last nights Minnesota game is now up. Although i would mention this game made me die a little. Irvin had a double-double so enjoy. GO BLUE!
Detroit center Andre Drummond was 13-of-36 from the free throw line in Tuesday's 123-114 win over the Houston Rockets. Drummond's 23 misses set a new NBA record for most misses in a game.
The Rockets opened the second half with K.J. McDaniels fouling him five times in the first nine seconds. Drummond shot 16 free throws in less than three minutes. At one point, the Rockets fouled Drummond 12 consecutive times.
Drummond set a career-high and franchise record 36 free throw attempts, and was intentionally fouled 21 times. The previous record for most misses was 22, set by Wilt Chamberlain in 1967. Drummond was four attempts away from setting the NBA record for free throw attempts.
Drummond's free throw shooting woes are well-documented, so this dubious record isn't much of a surprise. But I can't remember a team using the 'Hack-a___' rule this intensely since Shaq himself, and even then I don't think it was used this ridiculously. Thoughts?
