Westbrook has added a Euro step. Good, Lord. That's scary.

Point guard J.J. Barea will be at the #Mavs' shootaround Thursday morning, according to president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson

Difficult to watch Laker rookie Julius Randle of Plano break his tibia in his NBA debut. I just talked to him last month. He's a class act.

Jeff Caplan

The San Francisco Spurs. Am I wrong?

Dwain Price

Now that that's over, back to the NBA.
