If the Trail Blazers were to select Lillard or North Carolina's Kendall Marshall at No. 6 or No.11, (Nolan) Smith says he would welcome it and warns that he'll be coming for them. "Any point guard that comes in, we'll be teammates, but I'm going to let them know that I am here," Smith said. "We're going to battle and compete and may the best man win." CSNNW.com

Blazers G Nolan Smith explains Sebastian Telfair's late ejection: "Times get chippy... Attitudes are flaring, of course when I get in and Elliot and us get in we're going to play hard. Get after you, get under you, and they didn't like that... It happens. He plays hard, some words were said, it happens... He had already been kind of mad the whole game. I think he did some things to Nic earlier and was kind of pushing everybody around. When I got in, he didn't still want to be pushed around." Sulia

Iman Shumpert: Friday night, I headed out to Bridgeport, Conn., to play in another charity game for us locked-out players. The people who came out — maybe 2,000 — provided us plenty energy with cheers and competitive boos. I decided to sit out the last part of the game after going up for a dunk and feeling an awkward pain in my knee. I could have kept playing, but decided just to ice it to ensure I was OK. Nothing major. I think it was due to not warming up at half because I was hanging out with fans and doing photos and autographs, which is partly why we were there. Some of the many participants were Tyreke Evans, Sam Young, Josh Selby, Wes Mathews, Nolan Smith, Howard Thomkins and Travis Leslie. My team won, 171-169. The best part for me was getting a chance to connect with more Knicks fans praying for a season! It was a great turnout. New York Post
