Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
NBA training camps and free agency officially kicks off tomorrow but that hasn’t stopped rumors and confirmations from flooding my Twitter timeline. First up, Memphis Grizzlies free agent Shane Battier announced on Twitter this morning that he is taking his talents to South Beach (yeah, I know overused phrase)
The Lockout gave me a lots of time to consider what was important to me at this stage of my life and career. Over the last week, I’ve played out every scenario in my head over and over. It always came back to one thing for me: a winning role. I am appreciative of all the kind words and recruiting pitches over the last week, thank you!!
This was a exciting process and after much deliberation, I would like to quote the great poet Jimmy Buffett and take my chances “Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season”

With Butler off board, it's unclear where they'll turn to upgrade at shooting guardOn the wild final day before training camps across the NBA opened, the Heat added Shane Battier to an already solid defensive team; the Knicks stood poised to sign Tyson Chandler and the league scuttled the Lakers' bid to acquire Chris Paul.
I do not mean to sensationalize. I am just stating fact. Stephen A. Smith was “Heated Up” last week on ESPN’s First Take. He went on a diatribe, which is normal for Stephen A. He was talking about how LeBron should man up and be more like Kobe, and he should embrace being the bad [...]
Today the NBA released the 2011-12 schedule. Teams will only play 66 games thanks to the lockout. A total of 990 games will take place in the regular season over a 119 day period.
