it's a major award
I'm not sure what is more surprising in this, the fact that we ACTUALLY offered a 5 year deal to Stuckey, or the fact that he turned it down. Either way, this is failure all around, and further proves Dumars either has no clue how to rebuild, or doesn't want to. At this point, Dumars is running this team with all the savviness and experience of Elgin Baylor, and Kevin Mchale. Someone wake me for the draft lottery selections.....
I'm curious if the Player Development Center (PDC) is completed and fully operational. Last I heard, they were using the offices, locker rooms, and I think the weight room and treatment areas, but the new gym area had problems with the floor that delayed things. Is that all done yet?
I also was curious about where they put visiting teams for locker facilities. Is something built in to the PDC, or do they just put visitors in the same visitor's locker facilities they used at Crisler previously? Are they doing anything with the old home locker room, now that the team has moved their locker facilities to the PDC? Where do they do postgame pressers, etc.?
After reading the recent stuff about Dwight Howard lobbying for a trade, and Chris Paul demanding to go to the Knicks, Lakers or Clippers, I have to credit the NBA for its new deal and how it makes professional basketball even less interesting.
For the next deal, they should simply eliminate all but six teams, since it seems no one wants to play for any teams other than Miami, the L.A.s, New York New Jersey and Boston.
[ED:BISB: Much like the Tebow discussion, this one has gotten out of hand. No OT anyway, but this one devolved into a race-baiting MLive discussion in record time.
In the words of Erik_in_Dayton, this is why we can't have nice things.]
Cincy's coach got a lot of praise for his commemts following the UC-Xavier basketball brawl. Now the punishments have been announced. They fall far short of what I expected after listening to him, especially the six games for Yancy Gates. At least he's still talking tough. Those players will have to apologize, in front of a camera, and they'll have to mean it. Pretty much what I would have expected from Bob Huggins.
Darius Morris is now officially a Laker, he signed a contract, Actual terms (length, money, etc) weren't released though
Good for him, being a 2nd round pick, a contract wasn't guaranteed, hopefully he gets some playing time this year
