PLAYERS: Ty Lawson
TEAMS: Denver Nuggets

You had to know that eventually a NBA player who jumped overseas during the lockout would be griping about the differences before long, and it appears that Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson is the first to express his displeasure with playing in Europe via his twitter account: [...]

Harrington attempts giant burger challenge

Not too long ago we saw Al Harrington running through mud, crawling under barbed wire, and jumping over fire during an obstacle course event. He decided to put his body to a different kind of test recently. Harrington attempted to channel his inner Adam Richman by trying to complete the Bugsy Challenge at Burger Joint at Flamingo Las [...]

Nuggets Forward Al Harrington Attempts To Eat A 4.5 Pound Burger

Idle time can lead to no good. Nuggets Forward Al Harrington decided to try his luck with the Bugsy Challenge. It’s an eating challenge that a Las Vegas burger spot in the Flamingo has involving a 4.5 pound burger and a 45 minute time limit. The Bugsy Challenge consists of a burger with six one-third-pound burger patties, six types of cheese (American, cheddar, pepper jack, fresh...

Ty Lawson lashes out on twitter; adjusting to Europe not easy

Ty Lawson signed up to play in Lithuania while Billy Hunter and David Stern continue their ludicrous dance, the Nuggets point guard being one of the bigger name NBA players to jump overseas. But the adjustment has not been easy. He wasn’t getting a lot of minutes and has not put up big stats while…

J.R. Smith has a personal luggage room, hates Chinese internet policy

When free agent J.R. Smith signed with Zhejiang of the China Basketball Association last month, I lamented his departure from the NBA landscape. Few players fascinate like Smith -- he frustrates fans like no other, but he's also a threat to drop seven three-pointers in any game he plays. The upside of his move, of course, was that we'd get to read lots of interesting stories...

(Photo) Dang, Nuggets Forward J.R. Smith Sure Has A Lot Of Tattoos

Jeez Louise, there doesn’t appear to be one square inch on J.R. Smith’s upper torso that isn’t inked. He’s running out of skin, man. He’s like the medium character in Clive Barker’s “Book of Blood” only the ghosts that write their stories on his skin are dead tattoo artists. Note: Yes, I realize that Clive [...]

Al Harrington tries and fails to eat the best cheeseburger ever made

Last weekend Denver forward Al Harrington tried and failed to eat a six-cheese type of burger featuring two pounds worth of ground beef amongst other accoutrements, and this is both a good and bad thing. A good and not entirely inappropriate go-to joke during the lead-up and duration of this NBA lockout has asked us to guess at who will turn out to be the 2011 (or, more than likely...

JR Smith Being Treated Well By Chinese Team

  Like former teammates Wilson Chandler and Kenyon Martin shooting guard JR Smith will be hooping it up in China this season. Another of Smith’s former teammates is playing overseas as well. Ty Lawson is in Lithuania and doesn’t appear to be enjoying it. Despite a frustrating start, it looks like JR is living quite [...]

Chris “The Birdman” Andersen works with kids, Rubik’s Cubes

There could be a tattoo of a Rubik’s Cube on Chris Andersen. Hard to say. But we can now officially say that the Nuggets colorful shot blocker off the bench is a Rubik’s Cube guy. You remember, the cube you learned how to take apart and put back together with all the colors aligned so…

Al Harrington is eating some big burgers… well, almost

First the disclaimer — Al Harrington is not going Shawn Kemp. (Kemp is remembered by NBA fans for a few things, one of which was ballooning up during the last lockout.) I saw Harrington in action in person last month at the Impact series in Las Vegas and he is in good shape. When the…

JR Smith’s Goal in China: Triple-Double in Every Single Game

JR Smith is setting the performance bar high during his adventure in China. Impossibly high, because that’s just what he does. Per Sheridan Hoops: “As the biggest name in team history, Smith also gets the best treatment. The team has hired a cook and two translators especially for him. For his relocation, Smith brought about 20 pieces of luggage, and the club arranged a room...

As the NBA lockout rages on, more and more poor, starving, unemployed NBA players are fleeing overseas in search of work in order to feed their families.  But how are these players faring in foreign lands?  Here's our first update, featuring Andrei Kirilenko, Deron Williams, Tony Parker, J.R. Smith and Danilo Gallinari. Danilo Gallinari - Olimpia Milano (Italy)One positive...
