Now, if Team USA wants to make Scola pay, there is one simple move they can make: pickup fullback point guard...
Long before the d-bags in Miami were rocking black uniforms and acting like jerks, Charles Barkley and the Phoenix Suns rocked the cleanest black jerseys in pro sports. (Shut up Raiders fans… you know I don’t speak hoodrat) Uni-watch.com broke the news that the Suns are bringing back the classic 90′s black uniforms that Barkley,
The Suns will sign P.J. Tucker to a two-year contract with partial guarantees on the first year.
The Hornets are attempting to execute a sign-and-trade with the Suns for Robin Lopez.
Still working on catching up on the 2012 Summer League recaps for the four newest players coming from the North Carolina Basketball program this post is about the debut for Kendall Marshall, the 6’4″/195 lbs point guard who sat out the first game of his squad since he had not signed his contract with the franchise.
