Swingman/Replica Jerseys

I remember back in the day, swingman jerseys were still stitched. I went online and checked out some jerseys on NBA.com and they're no longer tackle-twill but rather screen-printed.

Back then, tackle-twill was the only difference between swingman and replica jerseys, now that they're also screen-printed, is there a difference? Is it even worth it anymore?

Good man

I know it is off-topic, still does not mean people have to care about it, though, lol. To answer the question, I have no idea. Official will always beat replica with the quality of jersey, but I do not know these other little factoids. I have quite a few jerseys of both and can say I like the official ones more, but swingman vs. replica is of little meaning to me. I'd probably get which ever one costs less, as jerseys tend to be a rip-off anyway. Have always tried to get mine at discount someway, usually has worked out well.

It’s never too early to look

It’s never too early to look ahead to the NBA Draft. Of course, the 2012-13 NBA season is about to start, but it’s the job of each and every general manager to plan for the future.

The last time Gordon was

The last time Gordon was really healthy he averaged 22.3 points for the Clippers, shooting 45 percent from the field, 36 percent from three and 83 percent from the free throw line. That’s the Gordon that the Hornets are hoping to have going forward, and if he’s ready on opening night the team might just be better that we expect from the first jump ball.

“They’re very similar because

“They’re very similar because they’re kind of similar players: hard-nosed, work very hard players,” Rivers said. “Monty’s really tough. He’s hands on, he likes to teach and he won’t let you get away with any mistakes, won’t let you get away with anything which is good because we’re very young as a team and it’s going to make us a lot better that way. It’s been very exciting being coached by Coach Williams and I know he’ll lead us in the right direction.”

As we know, once the Knicks

As we know, once the Knicks relentlessly unleashed Novak on the league, he continued draining threes and giving opposing defenses fits. He finished the 2012-13 campaign averaging a career-high in scoring and led the entire league in three-point percentage (47.2 percent), connecting on 133 of the 282 three-pointers he attempted.{p\][]

From out of the league, to a

From out of the league, to a stint in the D-League, to waiver-wire fodder, to a key contributor on a playoff team, to a lucrative long-term contract… all within eight short months.

Despite his success last season, and his freshly inked multimillion dollar contract, Novak was adamant in declaring his belief that continued success would only result if he approached each practice and each game as if his NBA livelihood was still on the line.\po['0-0

In addition, Novak also

In addition, Novak also acknowledged that he’d have to continue to improve and expand his game if he wanted to be effective in the future.

“I think defenses are going to know my strengths and run me off the three-point line and do that kind of thing,” Novak explained. “This summer, I definitely put an emphasis on being able to put the ball on the floor. One or two dribbles, using my shot fake more; just understanding how defenses are going to play me.

Yes, Jeff Green’s return to

Yes, Jeff Green’s return to the NBA after missing the 2011-12 season with an aortic aneurysm is a touching story. Heart surgery is more serious than basketball, and while the Boston Celtics forward has been cleared by doctors, stepping back on the floor can be a nervous moment.
