Leggy ladies and guys squeezed into skin-tight shirts. Flowing hair and fedoras. The Big Shots, a European pop trio, wearing T-shirts that say "MADE IN ITALY" — with a red X over the E.

Those of you who have been following my CBA reports already know that Kenyon Martin has been a disappointment for the Xinjiang Flying Tigers thus far. According to a report by ESPN’s Marc Stein, the team is strongly considering parting ways with the underacheiving power forward. As a matter of fact, the article states that only serious sanctaions threatened by the CBA have...
Acquired by the Nuggets in February, 23-year-old Danilo Gallinari is projected to be Denver's starting small forward in 2011-12. Gallinari spent much of the offseason honing his game in his native Italy and he is prepared to take on more of a leadership role for the Nuggets.
Nuggets fans got their first look at Danilo Gallinari and the 2011-12 Denver squad Friday night during an open scrimmage at Pepsi Center. Newcomer Rudy Ferndandez, veteran Al Harrington and rookie Kenneth Faried were among the standouts during the free event.
Like JR Smith, Wilson Chandler and Aaron Brooks, Kenyon Martin is stuck playing in China until March, or until his squad—the Xinjiang Flying Tigers—releases him. While the latter has been considered unlikely, ESPN is reporting that K-Mart may indeed be headed back to the NBA pretty soon: “The Xinjiang Flying Tigers in China are giving strong consideration to releasing star...
So Ty Lawson played pro ball in Lithuania this fall. After one game, he walked into the locker room by the showers.
“I was like, ‘What’s that smell?’ ” Lawson recalled.
He then spotted his teammate, Robertas Javtokas, standing under the shower … smoking a cigarette.
“I look over, he’s puffing and says, ‘Oh, what’s up Ty?’ ” Lawson said with a laugh.

Two years ago, Jordan Hamilton was one of the nation’s top prep recruits coming out of L.A.’s Dominguez High School. After finally deciding on the University of Texas, the 6-8 swingman followed up an up-and-down freshman campaign with an impressive sophomore season. With averages of 18 points and 8 rebounds and a pro-ready body, Hamilton decided...
Zhejiang 103, Foshan 96: As well as JR Smith has performed lately, I think he could be even better if he’d stop taking so many jumpers. I’m sure he didn’t want to, but in this game he was forced to resort to something other than the three-pointer to avoid a three-game losing streak. JR missed all five of his long-range attempts today, most of which came pretty early...
Danilo Gallinari didn't jump so much as he catapulted, as if some crazy combination of acceleration, force, torque and luck would make his desperate lunge Dikembe-like.
If you haven’t seen the Danilo Gallinari music video, stop working on that TPS Report and click below.
The song “Party Start-Party Stop” is infectious, contagious, really any ious you can think of. I wrote about it in my Gallo feature in Sunday’s paper. The song is by an Italian trio called “The Big Shots” and features jaw-dropping lyrics and jaw-dropping dance moves...
The Xinjiang Flying Tigers in China are giving strong consideration to releasing star forward Kenyon Martin, according to sources close to the situation.
If Xinjiang goes through with the move, it would be the test case for established NBA players who signed in China during the lockout to possibly return to the NBA sooner than expected.
Sources told ESPN.com that only the threat...
