The inner intensity of Tobias Harris

As the losses began to pile up this year, Tobias Harris was easy to find after games as the locker room opened up to the media (or shortly after). He would usually be sitting in his locker, feet dunked in ice, with a serious look still plastered on his face. The game that was just completed was still washing over him.

Flexibility means those...

Andrew Nicholson began his second year with the Orlando Magic scoring 18 points in the first half of their opener at Indiana. He had nowhere to go from there but down.
