SH Blog: Rondo expects to win NBA title, plans to beat Jeremy Lin “pretty badly”

Rajon-Rondo

Today’s major news might make you very sad: Sasha Vujacic is no longer in a relationship with Maria Sharapova. Actually, most guys are probably happy to hear of this development (or not give a damn). In equally important news, former 90210 stars Jennie Garth and Luke Perry are not dating as previously thought. Jokes aside, we do have some very interesting material in today’s news, including a slew of noteworthy quotes from Rajon Rondo, an explanation of Dwyane Wade’s beef with Erik Spoelstra

Yao Ming RT @: @ Best player you played with other than lebron and dwade
@ShaneBattier
Shane Battier
This is somewhat of an interesting answer. Most would logically think that Yao Ming was the best player Shane Battier played with in his career (assuming Tracy McGrady was too fragile to consider by the time Battier joined the Rockets), but lets not forget that Battier also played with Pau Gasol in his first five seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the Grizzlies were swept out of the first round every

SH Blog: Don Nelson to join Hall of Fame, wishes he could have coached Rubio and Love

Don Nelson

As we slowly prepare ourselves for an exciting upcoming season, it’s good to have an idea of who is still left on the market and what teams can go after them. Who still has enough cap room or trade exceptions to land a player of relevance? Moke Hamilton has all the details on the subject. On to today’s news, soon-to-be Hall of Famer Don Nelson had plenty to say about a wide range of topics, including his former player Monta Ellis.

Tweet of the Day: Nate Robinson

Nate Robinson

Wow RT @: This ESPN rank is crazy. Steve Blake (5.2ppg, 3.3apg) is 239th and @ (11.2ppg and 4.5apg) 276th. #Underrated
@nate_robinson
Nate Robinson
Chicago Bulls point guard Nate Robinson learned something that was, at the very least, a surprise to him: Steve Blake is ranked higher than him by a gap of 37 players on ESPN. It should be a surprise because if we are looking at this from a production standpoint from the previous season, it’s not even close. Robinson was unquestionably the superior player based on performance. Both guards played just over 23 minutes per game, and here is a comparison

Hamilton: NBA Teams With Cap and Trade Exceptions

Steve Nash

As August ends and calendars are flipped to September, it dawns on you: NBA training camps will open in a few weeks. Although the Summer of 2012 will ultimately be remembered for when the Los Angeles Lakers somehow managed to acquire two of the top prizes on the market, there are still quite a few free agents that could ultimately be the difference between your favorite team making a trip to the postseason or anxiously awaiting the results of the draft

Deron Williams
Imagine this: you are going about your business and shooting some hoops at your local park, when all of a sudden you see NBA superstar Deron Williams walk in to scope things out. Next thing you know, you’re playing a game of one-on-one with him. It’s like a scene out of a day dream, but that’s exactly what happened to one lucky fan, who was at the right place at the right time. How cool is that?Dwyane Wade’s Tweets of

SH Blog: Blake Griffin’s knee is just fine, Kris Humphries being sued by woman for giving her Herpes

Blake Griffin

Remember when Blake Griffin suffered a meniscus tear in his left knee over the summer? We really haven’t heard too much about it since, but he is apparently just fine now and and would be ready to play if training camp opened today. He didn’t get to work with Hakeem Olajuwon as originally planned, but appears to have been working on his jump shot and free throws – some of his biggest struggles from last season. See the current mindset

Tweet(s) of the Day: Dwyane Wade

Wade-Windhorst

I was thinking the same thing RT @: @ why dont you fix your bottom teeth ?
@DwyaneWade
Dwyane Wade
Over the past week or so, notable superstars of the NBA, such as LeBron James and Dirk Nowitzki, took some time on twitter to answer noteworthy questions from their fans. It’s one of the best ways for the players to reach out to fans all over the world and show that they care, without actually having to meet any of them in person. On Wednesday, Dwyane Wade decided to do the same, as you will see below. Find out
