ABC News - 9 days
Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum and Memphis Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons exchanged barbs on Twitter on Friday night, including McCollum telling Parsons that his team "hit the lottery by not signing you." The social media feud started with a tweet from the Trail Blazers' official account, which posted a video of Parsons shooting an air ball on a 3-point attempt during the Trail Blazers' 112-109 victory Friday in Portland. Parsons, evidently seeing the tweet after the game, replied with a shot of his own: The Trail Blazers improved to 21-27 with Friday's victory but still trail the Denver Nuggets (20-25) by a half-game for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. McCollum responded by taking his own shot at the Memphis forward, who has struggled with injuries and inconsistent play after signing a lucrative offseason contract with the Grizzlies. . ...

Their guards were not efficeint enough, there were plenty of injuries, and the lack of youth on the team doesn’t help much either. With an early vacation, the Mavs have a lot of thinking to do in order to boost their potential for the coming season. Free agency has some pretty notable targets, and the upcoming draft offers quite a few key pieces as well. So where do the Mavericks begin? Find a point-guard that works There is no question about it that Rajon Rondo was a failed experiment. He came to the Mavericks and had everyone fantasizing about another championship. Sadly, all those expectations would be destroyed by the Rondo trade. However, Rondo is not the only guard to put pressure on. Devin Harris and J.J. Barea were not that great, and Felton isn’t much of a stud himself. The Dallas Mavericks were filled with injury prone, old, and slow point-guards that really didn’t have big games when they nee ...
