SH Blog: Derrick Rose Will Practice For Team USA On Monday

Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose will be taking the first steps towards returning to competitive basketball when he practices with Team USA tomorrow. The 2011 NBA MVP has struggled with staying on the court since tearing his ACL in 2012. After missing all of the 2012-13 season, Rose finally made his return last year for the start of the ’13-14 season. Unfortunately his return was short-lived as re-injured himself after playing just 10 games. Though some would wonder why Rose would risk further injury playing

Tweet of the Night: LeBron James returns to #23

In a surprise announcement early Sunday afternoon, LeBron James shocked the world yet again. He has made his second major decision of the summer, and will be returning to the #23 jersey he wore during his seven years in Cleveland. His logic was simple, yet somewhat strange. See for yourself on his Instagram/Twitter, which he used to break the announcement. 23 it is! It’s only right I go back. 2·3=6 We still family 6. #HomeTeam #StriveForGreatness http://t.co/2MpznC8JNM — LeBron James (@KingJames) July 27,

dannyschayes

After 18 roller-coaster months, the bumpy search for Billy Hunter’s replacement as executive director of the NBA Players Association seems ready to reach its conclusion. The drama will not end easily. Even a few days before the final candidate presentations and vote, turmoil reigns as different factions try to impose their respective wills on the process. What this excruciating process has exposed is that the search for the union head is really about who has control over the players. It’s certainly not the

SH Blog: Longer All-Star break coming?

2014 NBA All-Star Game Logo

I moved to Ohio a few months ago, to a small town west of Toledo. It’s about equal distance from Detroit and Cleveland, so I wasn’t sure what the common basketball allegiance was. As I quickly found out, it was “I don’t really follow basketball.” Then LeBron came back to Cleveland, and it was all anyone could talk about for a couple days. And this is the offseason. If he can make the Cavs contenders, it could be huge, not just

Team USA’s itinerary for the World Championship Cup is a nice one: Camps held in Las Vegas, Chicago and New York (including a trip to West Point) before flying across the Atlantic Ocean to the Canary Islands – where the European beach factor is high – and then moving on to Bilbao and Barcelona, another pair of oceanfront cities. As Charles Barkley once said when Team USA was in Barcelona for the 1992 Olympics: “I’m going to spend so much time at

Kevin Love has withdrawn from Team USA because of his “current status.” That was the explanation given Saturday morning in a news release from USA Basketball announcing that Love will not play for the United States at the World Cup in Spain. Love’s withdrawal exacerbates the one roster issue the American team was already facing: A lack of depth at power forward following the withdrawal of Blake Griffin. Love was a lock to be the starting power forward.
