Terribly Awesome Basketball Card: 1991 NBA Rookies

Ba-ba-Boyz-II-Men. 1991’s new edition of NBA rookies looks like an R&B supergroup. Looking at these mint condition cards makes me sad with nostalgia. I loved that time of my life, and I wish I could make it last forever. It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday. First up, you have “Plastic Man” Stacey Augmon in his white-tee, tucked in mind you, and acid wash jeans looking...

Is Bennett answer to Bobcats' scoring power forward need?

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Anthony Bennett arrived in Charlotte early Saturday morning to meet with Bobcats front office executives, unable to do much to answer the biggest question surrounding his game: Is he a tweener or a versatile power forward? He's heard the whispers, but the torn labrum in his non-shooting shoulder limited any potential for him to alleviate those concerns in...

Missing the college hoops of yesteryear

It ain’t like it used to be Pardon me for not being all over this tournament. The Shockers aren’t that shocking and as nice as a story as FGCU may be, it’s all a bit lost on me. You see, I used to LOVE college basketball. My friends made fun of me. I was the guy consistently watching Long Beach St. on the back-end of a Super Tuesday triple-header. And I could name their starting...

Back in the Runnin'

I originally wrote this feature for Athlon Sports College Basketball magazine that is currently on newstands everywhere.  Unfortunately the story got bumped at the last minute from the print edition, but the good news is you get to read it here on The Hoops Manifesto.  Enjoy!

POTD 5/4/12: Ramon Sessions on Kenneth Faried

Never before, not in the playoffs nor the regular season, had Ramon Sessions won Poster of the Day.  One would think that Kenneth Faried, a 6’8″ man beast also known as “The Manimal,” may not be the guy you’d want to seek as your first head… but hey, it worked out alright for Ramon.  Watch as he soars in with the right hand, probably to Faried’s surprise, and drops...

Colorado-UNLV Preview

Stacey Augmon, Larry Johnson, Jerry Tarkanian, NCAA violations. Yes, you could play the word association game for hours and not run out of memories, good and bad, for UNLV. As for Colorado? Well, this is the program that produced Chauncey Billups. And there was the time the coach took a sledgehammer to the locker room as a not-so-subtle way of getting a construction project going...

CU hopes to keep rolling, UNLV wants to stop slide

UNLV's Rebels are up and runnin' again

As you enter the Thomas & Mack Center a few miles off the Las Vegas Strip, a giant sign welcomes you to a new era in UNLV basketball that looks a lot like an old era: "LET'S RUN," it says. That's the slogan first-year head coach Dave Rice adopted after he was announced as the man to reignite UNLV basketball and bring the Runnin' Rebels back to their glory...

Nuggets PG Andre Miller: The NBA’s most unsung Ironman

Tonight, Andre Miller ties Stacey Augmon on the NBA’s most games played list. Yep, Stacey Augmon, at 1,001 games played at the highest level of basketball in the world. He’s 97th in NBA history. I must admit I was 1) kind of surprised that Stacey Augmon had even played over 1,000 games in the NBA; and 2) That there are now 100 players in the history of the league to reach the...
