Ely is highly regarded by his teammates, and the center said the younger players, including Harris and point guard Sean Singletary, are now turning to him for advice on how to handle themselves away from the game, and he couldn’t be happier to help out. “Normally, these guys just pick my brain about old games, but now they’re asking me about certain situations and how to handle things, and I like it,” he said. “To ask somebody that question, you have to have a lot of trust in them, and I do feel honored when they do it. So when they do it, I just give them my past experience. I’ve been in a long time, so I either did it or I’ve seen it done.” NBA.com

Saying 'mainly NBA players' is stretching it in the Biogenesis case, but a former Biogenesis employee did say there were NBA players among the many claimed to be involved in the scandal. The NBA says they have not found evidence that any of the league's players were linked to Biogenesis, and they are leaving it at that. Which has rubbed some people the wrong way who are saying not enough was done to find out. The league is pushing for HGH testing, but we're a ways away from that becoming a reality in the league. In August, Portland guard Terrel Harris was suspended five games after being found in violation of the NBA's Anti-Doping Program.

That was two years ago when Terrel Harris survived the final cuts on the Miami Heat roster. "Is this real?" Yancy-Harris wondered aloud through sobs and laughter. "We were all excited." "My son (Kendal) kept saying, 'Do you realize your son plays in the NBA? Your son plays with LeBron James!' " Now, the Harris' family awaits another holiday text message. They are hopeful it comes on Halloween and it's sent from Portland. Harris, still young at 25 years old, has become the picture of a basketball journeyman. Undrafted out of Oklahoma State, Harris played overseas before moving to the NBA Development League. Then, thanks to his employment with the 2011-2012 Miami Heat, Harris has since enjoyed the perks of an NBA champion. He posed in front of the generic backdrop while holding the Larry O'Brien Trophy and even brought along his younger sister and brother to ride in the victory parade. But Harris still finds himself fighting for his third roster spot in three years. "Throughout my life," Harris said, "nothing has ever been given to me." Columbian

Earlier this month when the Portland Trail Blazers acquired center Robin Lopez from New Orleans through a three-team deal, Harris, a 6-foot-4 wing, also came over in the package and landed in a logjam of guards. The Blazers already have 14 roster spots filled, and only one remains. Harris, whose contract becomes guaranteed Oct. 31, recognizes the long odds. However, he's determined to announce once again: We made it. "It's not easy making the last spot on the roster," Harris said. "The thing is, I want to be in the NBA. If I have to go overseas, I will. But I'm just going to keep fighting until they kick me out or they turn out the lights." Columbian

Since the tournament, Harris returned to Miami to work out in the legendary 5th St. Gym where Muhammad Ali once famously trained. Harris has focused on core and balance exercises but soon expects to pull on the boxing gloves. It's a fitting workout for someone who fancies himself a fighter. Back in Texas, Yancy-Harris still beams at the memory of her Christmas Eve surprise two winters ago. Only the thought of this upcoming Halloween snaps her back to the present. "October 31st. That's the deadline. So I'm hoping to hear something that day," Yancy-Harris said. "I'm hoping to have more good news." Columbian
