UCLA Basketball: The Birth of Apathy and the Death Spiral of College Hoops
Bruins Nation - about 3 years
College basketball used to be a special game, especially the unique and special brand of hoops founded in Westwood by a man who was not only one of the greatest coaches of all time, but one of the best human beings of all time. Now, it's a broken game used as a final pre-NBA showcase for one-and-done AAU mercenaries, with the head chair in Westwood occupied by a mediocre coach who is not only embraces nepotism to the detriment of UCLA, but is an unrepentant, arrogant, rape apologist who has done nothing but sully the UCLA name. So, if you've been paying attention, it would appear that our Bruins went to Salt Lake City last night and got beat by an inferior Utah Utes squad in a manner that calling it Lavin-esque would be unfair to Steve Lavin. But I wouldn't know. Why? I didn't watch the game. In fact, I haven't watched very many games at all this season. Actually, the more I think of it, I think I've only watched one, maybe two. And even then, I wasn't really watch ...

NBA Rookie Class Led By Victor Oladipo Is High Quality, If Not Full Of Superstars
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The 2014 NBA Draft class might be the most talented crop of hoopers since the famed 2003 draft including LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh. But that hardly means we should overlook this year's incoming class, which features a strong blend of scoring, toughness and some possible star power. Let's take a look at five of the key story lines for this year's rookies. 1. Victor's World Victor Olapido, Orlando's second overall pick, is something special. While scouts questioned his natural scoring ability and shooting touch coming out of Indiana (they did the same when he came out of high school), he wowed with his relentless defense, tenacious rebounding and overall appetite for making plays. Oladipo may not have a true position quite yet, but neither did Russell Westbrook or Wade when they came out of school -- and make no mistake, the comparisons to both are real. Oladipo earned consensus First-Team All-America honors during his junior season at Indiana. He is an ...

Carl Berman: Thoughts from the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
After watching the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas for a week, we, at NetScouts Basketball, thought we'd go over some of this year's rookies, how they are playing and what we think of them thus far. We don't view the Summer League as a major predictive tool. Most of the action rivals pick-up games with not a lot of offense put in and the defense questionable as well. Adding to that this year, the competition level has dropped somewhat, with many European level players with no chance of playing in the NBA on rosters. With those disclaimers, here's our analysis: C.J. McCollum, Portland -- Maybe he's just trying to get back into the swing of things after his senior season was cut short by injury, but McCollum has been hoisting them up. He's currently leading the league in scoring at 21.0 ppg but he's only shooting 36.6 percent, 31 percent on three's. That included yesterday's 9-of-26 effort and an 8-of-25 game on Tuesday. He's listed at 6'3 but appears to be at best 6'2. He's ...

NBA Draft Grades: Anthony Bennett Chosen First, Nerlens Noel Slides And Trades Galore
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The NBA Draft has come and gone ... just not necessarily the way we had envisioned it taking place. It was a shock to many that Anthony Bennett was drawn first by Cleveland -- the first-Canadian born player ever to be taken in that slot. While Bennett is certainly an intriguing prospect, the selection was the byproduct of a draft sorely lacking star power. Ironically, Thursday's pick was David Stern's last draft as commissioner. Stern -- who will step down Feb. 1 after three decades on the job -- has built this league up with electric stars, starting with Michael Jordan in the mid-80s and ending with LeBron James today. Nerlens Noel, whom many had tabbed as the likely top selection, fell to the sixth pick, while Boston Celtics' stalwarts Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were dealt to Brooklyn. Making matters even stranger was the fact that rising star Jrue Holiday was traded from Philadelphia to New Orleans and will now team up with Anthony Davis on that team. Still, this part ...
