The summer has slowed down in terms of NBA news but there is
still plenty to talk about. I still
haven’t figured out the best day to release my weekly column but just know that
it will drop weekly at some point. This
week we take a look at JJ Redick’s personal life, Derrick Rose and Nate
Robinson’s signing with the Nuggets.
JJ Redick’s Love
We have all heard the stories of athletes going bankrupt and
broke. Some of the themes that cause financial
issues with athletes are jewelry, cars and baby mommas. Athletes earn enough money where these
factors shouldn't attribute to them going broke but it does. That is until MediaTakeOut got a hold of JJ
Redick’s contract with ex-girlfriend, Vanessa Lopez.

To summarize the contract up, Vanessa Lopez agrees to have
an abortion if she gets pregnant by JJ Redick in exchange for dating rights for
an additional year. This isn't even the
most bizarre part. If Redick d...

Did JJ Redick have an abortion contract with one of his ex-girlfriends? An old leaked document seems to show that he did.
JJ Redick has been in the NBA for seven years, so he knows his way around contract negotiations. Apparently off-the-court contracts involving his lady friends aren't out of bounds, either.
Redick reportedly was involved in a nasty legal snarl with Orlando model Vanessa Lopez early in his career, and now documents are being leaked despite a previous confidentiality agreement...
ON AN 8-FOOT RIM
This rim is only eight feet high, but Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose's knee looks just fine throwing down this between-the-legs dunk.

Hold the contempt. Save the obvious pronouncements that he's dead wrong. Push back that understandable urge to roll your eyes and wonder what the hell Derrick Rose is up to this time.
Let's all take a deep breath and see Rose's sudden swagger for what it is: He's finally back to his old self.
In an interview with CNN's Pedro Pinto this week, Rose was asked who...
Derrick Rose hasn't played in more than a year. But that hasn't affected his confidence.
In an interview with CNN's Pedro Pinto, the Chicago Bulls star did not hesitate when asked who he thinks is the best player in the NBA.
"Derrick Rose," the 2011 MVP said.
Rose, who missed all of last season while recovering from knee surgery, has not played since the...
At this point for the Bulls coaching staff and fans, any sign that Derrick Rose's surgically repaired knee is back to 100% is a welcome sight.
With that being said, it may have been an 8-foot rim but Rose, while in Spain, decided to rock the rim (h/t gamedayr.com) with through-the-legs dunk.
Hey, it is a good sign right Bulls fans?
The NBA schedule is expected to be released next Tuesday, just about three months before the season tips off.
However, a draft of the schedule is done, and the South Florida Sun Sentinel is reporting that the season will start October 29th in Miami, with the Chicago Bulls watching the Heat raise a second consecutive banner.
More importantly that the Heat celebrating is that the...
Who is the best player currently suiting up in the NBA? For most people, the answer to that question would be LeBron James. Derrick Rose, however, is not one of those people.
“Derrick Rose,” the Bulls guard said when CNN’s Pedro Pinto asked him who the league’s best player is. Rose’s answer was just a small part of a larger interview, but his stone-cold gaze made it clear...
The Denver Nuggets signed journeyman Nate Robinson to a two-year deal this week and while Denver gains – for all intents and purposes – a poor man’s Ty Lawson in Robinson, it was expected that Andre Miller would be packaged in a deal that would make Robinson the focal backup point guard. However, the Denver [...]The post Denver Nuggets keeping Andre Miller? appeared first on...
The Miami Heat will open the 2013-14 NBA season at home against the Chicago Bulls on Oct. 29, according to a Sun Sentinel report.
The paper also reports the Heat will play on Christmas Day for the fifth straight season, visiting the Los Angeles Lakers.
The complete NBA season schedule is expected to be released next week.
The Heat ousted the Bulls 4-1 in the second round of the...
The NBA season ended last month, but it’s never to early to begin speculating and discussing the 2013 regular season, even thought it’s still some 90 plus days away.
