NBA teams find partnership with wheelchair basketball

Back in April, I ran across an article from the Louisville newspaper about the National Wheelchair Basketball Association’s national championship. It was no surprise to me, remembering the days of the Magic Wheels that many of these teams were sponsored by NBA teams, many wearing NBA jerseys. The Mavericks and the Knicks were in the finals in that competition in April. The Magic...

Seth Curry shooting for a chance

No player during Summer League generated more questions and more interest than Seth Curry. The name alone is enough to draw a fan in and wonder what could be. Seth is not anywhere near as skilled a point guard or even as proficient a shooter as his older brother, Stephen. But he is still a gifted player in his own right and just searching for the chance to prove it. His NBA experience...

Magic Wheels still rolling, still winning in more ways than one

I remember when I was in elementary school going to Magic games and maybe once or twice a year, the Magic Wheels would take the court and play an exhibition game as a halftime show. As a six- or seven-year-old kid, this idea of wheelchair basketball was astounding. How do you play basketball confined to a chair? Usually the announcement of their arrival came with the note that the...

The Nikola Vucevic conundrum

From the moment Nikola Vucevic proved to be a double-double machine, it became clear what the first big test for Rob Hennigan and his “Process” would be. How do you evaluate Nikola Vucevic’s worth?
