funny, not a mispronounce of

funny, not a mispronounce of Yao Ming but I heard people on several occasions refer to Mao Tse Tung as "Yao Tse Tung"....which is just proof of Yao's enormous popularity.

yeah, everyone pronounced like that, I may have even been caught doing it on purpose because it sounded funnier and more intimidating.

Once upon a time, Tracy

Once upon a time, Tracy McGrady was considered to be one of the best players in the NBA. The seven-time All-Star and two-time scoring champion seemed destined to be mentioned in the same breath as Michael Jordan, Dominique Wilkins and Kobe Bryant, some of the most electrifying scorers in the history of the NBA, but he never quite lived up to that billing.

What happened to that premier

What happened to that premier scoring threat who looked like a championship-caliber addition to Houston’s lineup alongside Yao Ming?

Nicolas Batum had 12 points

Nicolas Batum had 12 points in his first game since returning to Portland with a four-year deal worth more than $45 million when the Blazers matched an offer sheet from Minnesota after Batum's agent said his client wanted to join the Timberwolves.

Parallels could be drawn

Parallels could be drawn between this season and Aldridge's rookie year in 2006, when the team was trying to crawl out of the Jail Blazers era when it was known for its off-court trouble. But the 6-foot-11 power forward says there's a difference this season.

Now fully healed, Aldridge

Now fully healed, Aldridge led team workouts in September at the Blazers' Tualatin practice facility before the start of fall camp. The idea was to get to know the newcomers - especially Lillard.

Redemption seems to be the

Redemption seems to be the prevailing mantra in Phoenix heading into the 2012-13 NBA season. While a playoff berth isn’t likely in the cards this year in the brutal Western Conference, there’s little doubt that the young, fast-paced and high-scoring Suns will be one of the more interesting teams to watch in 2013.

The Rockets have been looking

The Rockets have been looking for a way to move Martin, one of the last remnants of the Rick Adelman era in Houston, and the Thunder were looking to avoid the maximum contract discussion that Harden’s camp was trying to have. This deal accomplishes both things, and also gives the Thunder depth and draft picks in the deal.t3434

“I thought he did OK,”

“I thought he did OK,” Carlisle said. “He’s a really good offensive player around the basket. Defensively, there are some things we have to work with him on. In the pick-and-roll defense, he tends to stay back and zone up and our coverage is more aggressive. It’s a mindset; just something he’s got to get use to, but he did some good things.”gfsddf
