Instead of doing a links post tonight I thought I would just compile a few of today's biggest NBA headlines, along with quotes from around the web. I'm not sure if this will start being a daily occurance or not, but I thought it would be something different to try out. Let us know if you like the idea. Without further ado, here is today's biggest news stories - as seen by your favorite dancing machine, Gino.
Allen Iverson accepts a one-year non-guaranteed deal to return to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Philadelphia Inquirer - The 76ers and Allen Iverson were reunited today, with the 34-year-old former All-Star agreeing to a non-guaranteed contract for the rest of this season. Sixers president and general manager Ed Stefanski did not comment on terms of the agreement with Iverson, but the contract is for a prorated amount of the $1.3 million veteran's minimum, roughly $600,000 to $650,000, which would become guaranteed for the remainder of the season if Iverson remained on the roster Jan. 10.
Ron Artest says he drank Hennesey at halftime during his days in Chicago.
Associated Press - Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest has said that he drank alcohol during games when he was a member of the Chicago Bulls. "I used to drink Hennessy at halftime," Artest said in an interview with Sporting News. "I (kept it) in my locker. I'd just walk to the liquor store (near the stadium) and get it."
The New Jersey Nets set the record tonight for the worst start in NBA history, atleast they are being noticed for something.
NetsAreScorching - Well, the Nets made history tonight in their 117-101 loss to the Mavericks (14-5). By falling to 0-18, the Nets now solely own the record for the worst start in NBA history. I would say congratulations are in order, but my gallow’s humor got used up in the second quarter tonight.So about that second quarter – the Mavericks scored 49 points on 17-19 shooting. That’s not a typo.
Zydrunas Ilgauskas set the Cavaliers record for most games played tonight.
ESPN - Zydrunas Ilgauskas set a Cavaliers record for games played, and the Cleveland fans showered him with appreciation for it. As for the appreciation between Ilgauskas and the franchise he's represented for the past 13 years, that still seems in short supply at the moment.
As for Celtics news, there is not much of it. Rasheed's technical foul situation took most of the spotlight today, as far as Celtics news is concerned.
Boston Herald - Doc Rivers often says he doesn’t want to take the passion out of Rasheed Wallace’s game. But even the Celtics coach had to express concern when Wallace, who leads the NBA with eight technical fouls, picked up his third in three games in last night’s 108-90 rout of the Bobcats.
So there are a couple of today's biggest headlines around the NBA. If there were any other major news stories then apparently Gino was dancing to much to notice. Hope everyone enjoys this new idea I had, and I hope you enjoy your Thursday.
