Rose Says Chris Webber Should Make Amends With Michigan, Apologize

Jalen Rose

Chris Webber’s NCAA-mandated, 10-year dissociation with the University of Michigan ended last year, but the “Fab Five” star has yet to make amends with the maize and blue. And according to ex-teammate Jalen Rose, Webber is doing a massive disservice to all those involved during their infamous but storied time in Ann Arbor by refusing to bury the hatchet. Read More »

Remember This Name: Jaylen Brown, Class Of 2015 Superstar

Jaylen Brown

Meet Jaylen Brown. He is a 17-year-old, 6-7 wing that hails from Marietta, Georgia. Some say he reminds them of 2014 second overall Draft pick Jabari Parker with more athleticism. Some say he resembles the number one small forward out of the class of 2014, Stanley Johnson, who will be suiting up for the Arizona Wildcats later this year. However, Brown is writing his own path, and by the way he has been rocking it on the hardwood lately, his name will be in the spotlight for years to come. Read More »

Video: Watch Nik Stauskas Hit 15 Straight Three-Pointers In 46 Seconds

Nik Stauskas

Kings rookie Nik Stauskas spent two seasons at Michigan before declaring for the 2014 NBA Draft. He shot better than 44 percent in both those campaigns, and the Kings expect him to make an impact from beyond the arc after they finished 27th in the league in three-point shooting percentage last season. A recent video of Stauskas training this summer should make Sac-town fans happy and could even mean he gets a nod for the three-point shootout in February. Read More »

Remember This Name: Rayjon Tucker, Ferocious Class Of 2015 Wing

Rayjon Tucker

You know a great dunker when you see one, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to describe what makes him so. The human body has its limits, after all, and most of basketball’s rarest slams are performed by those who count dunking as a habit instead of the game itself. There’s just something extra compelling about the best high-level, in-game dunkers even if you can’t exactly put your finger on it. That’s the way we feel about crazy-athletic class of 2015 wing Rayjon Tucker. Read More »
