Utah Jazz assistant coach and former Dallas Maverick Jason Terry will coach the G League team, which features Sidy Cissoko, (G League Ignite), Scoot Henderson (G League Ignite), Mojave King (G League Ignite), Kenneth Lofton Jr. (Memphis Hustle), Mac McClung (Delaware Blue Coats), Leonard Miller (G League Ignite) and Scotty Pippen Jr. (South Bay Lakers).
The 2011 championship holds a special place in his heart, as it is the greatest moment of his career. But at the same time, it is also an unforgettable moment for NBA fans.  “I hope many people remember that championship. People still remember it like it was yesterday ,” said the veteran center. For that success to come, of course, the group of players that had been created also played a role. “I played alongside great players. Dirk Nowitzki did great things, Jason Kidd too, Jason Terry, JJ Barea, Tyson Chandler. They were all amazing characters, they came together and found a way to lead the team to the title” , he underlined, before standing on what people tell him when they meet him on the street.
By the numbers, on a personal level, the 2010-11 season was not the most productive of his career. “I don’t know if it was the most enjoyable, but it was definitely the most memorable,” he replies bluntly, just before explaining the degree of difficulty involved in winning the championship in the top basketball league on the planet.  “People don’t understand how hard it is to win an NBA championship. It’s terribly difficult. When you win you achieve something great that changes your life forever. Since 2011 I have managed to achieve something that cannot be compared with anything. It’s a unique moment and that’s what makes it special. You see teams that won 2,3,4,5 championships. You can’t understand how difficult it is to achieve something like that . “
James can continue to climb the ladder in two accumulation categories this season. He enters the campaign third all time in minutes played with 52,139, needing 2,714 more to pass Malone for second. He would have to be in the lineup for around 75 games to do that. Abdul-Jabbar tops the list with 57,446 minutes. Speaking of games played, he is 14th on the all-time list with 1,366. If he plays in 59 contests this season, he would move up to eighth, passing Clifford Robinson, Reggie Miller, Jason Kidd, Tim Duncan, Jason Terry and Kevin Willis.
Storyline: Statistical Milestones
Mavericks owner Mark Cuban caused a bit of a stir last week in a sitdown with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks, revisiting a story he has told before (video below) about his belief that a trade with the Lakers to acquire a then-disgruntled Kobe Bryant leading into the 2007-08 season was essentially “done.” The proposed deal, which Cuban said he was negotiating directly with Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss, would have resulted in a package headlined by Jason Terry, Josh Howard and future Dallas draft picks going to L.A. Yet two sources familiar with the Lakers’ thinking at the time contend that the trade, from their perspective, was not as close to completion as Cuban sensed.
