In late November, we showed you 70 behind the scenes photos from the inaugural Nike Pro Training Camp. Over four intense days of basketball and training at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Ore., some of the best athletes represented by Nike Inc. – meaning Nike Basketball, Jordan Brand and Converse – came out to get better.

Promising Cleveland Cavaliers guard Manny Harris knows that he can contribute to the team, he just needs to be on the floor. Unfortunately, that’s probably not going to happen for at least two weeks because Harris is in the same condition as the old hamburger meat in the back of your freezer.
Harris is sidelined with what is being called “freezer burn.” Read More »
Yesterday, the inaugural Nike Pro Training Camp came to a close. After four intense days of basketball and training at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Ore., some of the best athletes represented by Nike Inc. – meaning Nike Basketball, Jordan Brand and Converse – came out to get better. The group included LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Omri Casspi, Randy Foye, and Manny Harris. With that, take a look behind the scenes. Read More »
By the lofty standards of NBA stardom, Corperryale L’Adorable Harris – a.k.a. Manny Harris of the Cleveland Cavaliers – has been slumming it. As an undrafted rookie backup on the worst team in the League last season, he wasn’t exactly living out the dream according to the script we all drew up in the ninth grade. And yet at the same time, Harris is living a damn good life. Read More »
The Cleveland Cavaliers won just 19 games last season, good for second worst in the NBA. They also dealt away their most promising big man before the lockout began, which is kind of a downer for fantasy purposes. While there are some things to get excited about — the arrivals of a skilled rookie point guard and a promising rookie power forward, along with the return of Sideshow Bob – this Cavs squad has “timeshare” written all over it. Put on your sad face as we dive into the fantasy prospects for Dan Gilbert‘s crew. Read More »
As the final seconds ticked off the clock during Michigan’s third-round NCAA Tournament loss to Duke, Darius Morris took a shot that he’s made countless times before. He had made it earlier in the game. It was a shot that, according to him, he normally always makes.
“I got a good look and the shot went out,” says Morris of his last shot attempt in a Michigan uniform. “Everybody thought the shot was falling in, especially me. And when it didn’t, it just was a crazy feeling.”
It was a feeling that left Morris in a tricky position. The star point guard had a decision to make: stay at school, or leave early for the NBA? He ultimately chose to pursue his lifelong dream. Read More »

While a slew of buckets from their two All-Stars helped, at the end of the day, it was the Lakers’ defense that allowed them to pick up a big road win against the best defensive team in the West and quiet some of that “What’s wrong with L.A.?” talk for at least a weekend … Kobe Bryant and Co. went into last night’s game at New Orleans needing a statement win against a good team.

It’s just sad now. Or maybe it’s still funny. The Cavs have become the NBA’s charity case, worse than the Washington Generals because at least the Generals aren’t trying to win. The Cavs are getting to that part of the movie when head coach Martin Lawrence is at the end of his rope and needs a pep talk from an 11-year-old … During last night’s 27-point rout at the hands of LeBron James and the Heat, one Miami announcer sighed, “Oh, that woebegone look in the eyes of these Cleveland Cavaliers.” Read More »
