Following Wife’s Cancer, Brian Cook Attempts NBA Return

It is not often that a player can step away from the league for two seasons and then find his way back onto an NBA roster, but Brian Cook, a nine-year veteran who played for the L.A. Lakers and four other NBA teams, is currently giving it his best shot at the Orlando Summer League. Cook, drafted in the first round by the Lakers over a decade ago, is 33 years old, which makes him...

2014 NBA Summer League: The Pistons Take Down the Rockets

Stretch power forwards have become more and more valuable in the NBA. The Pistons and Rockets both have a plethora of stretch power forwards. Pistons also have a lot of combo guards that they look to rely on. The Detroit Pistons look to rely on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope as a leader to the younger guards, and produce on the offensive side. Pope came into this league as more of a perimeter...

AVCA Player and Coach of the Year named (and some other stuff)

When it’s national championship time, it’s time to hand out the hardware. The top two seeded teams in the tournament split the major awards. The Player of the Year nod went to (perhaps) the most obvious choice, BYU’s Taylor Sander. Obvious choice doesn’t mean wrong choice, it just means obvious.

A Michigan Man on Tommy Amaker

The biggest issue I have with Tommy Amaker was his mediocre tenure at Michigan. As an outsider, it always seemed like he underachieved.

Brian's two cents follow:"Amaker walked into a disaster area at Michigan and did make things better pretty...

Where are they now? - MPSF

No, this isn't some look into the distant or even not-so-distant past at collegiate and national-level players who have fallen off the scene (though it raises the question, Where Have You Gone, Tony Ciarelli?).

Match report: Stanford vs BYU

versus Here's an exciting matchup out of the MPSF, pitting two teams surprisingly at opposite ends of the conference standings. After difficult losses last week to UCLA and UCSB, both in five sets, Stanford find themselves mired on 11th place in conference. Nobody thinks they'll end the season in 11th place, but they've got a tall task to avoid an 0-3 conference...

And of course, there's the whole "two top-ten teams going at it" aspect...

From Cameroon, and already at the age of 25 years old, Kenny is projected to go in the 2nd round of this years NBA draft. Why so late in the draft? Probably because Kenny is already in his mid 20’s and he is not known as a banger in the paint eating...
