Found February 16, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
The Brooklyn Nets are interested in Portland Trailblazers forward J.J. Hickson, according to Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News.Heard the Nets are interested in Portland's JJ Hickson, who can veto a trade. Hickson would lose his Bird Rights if dealt.— Stefan Bondy (@NYDNInterNets) February 15, 2013 The Nets are attempting to add help at the four spot, and so far they’ve been tied to Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz forward Paul Millsap. However, both avenues haven’t been fruitful, and they now appear to be shifting their attention to Hickson and the Trailblazers.The Nets have given Bondy some “pushback” on his report of their interest in Hickson. Regardless, it’s clear they’re in the market for a big man and hope to add one before this month’s trade deadline expires.Hickson’s in his fifth year in the NBA, and he’s turning in arguably his best performance. The 24-year-old is averaging 12.7 points and 10.3 rebounds per game for Portland this season.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?

Blazers announcer Mike Rice attempts to dance

Veteran Trail Blazers analyst Mike Rice joined the Blazer dancers at halftime of a recent game in Portland.  My favorite part of the video may be Rice talking about different dances in the video open, especially the "Doo-gie", a dance craze perfected by a young medical practitioner.  Rice's moves on the court are pretty terrible, but at least he looks the part with...
