The Bobcats were hanging around (beating, even) the Rockets but the Rockets remembered how to shoot so they'll probably win by 40.

Is that Pelican the worst mascot in history? I'm struggling to think of worse...

Australian coach Brett Brown for coach of the year! Debut win against the Heat, Michael Carter-Williams goes insane.

Dwight and Asik combine for 40 boards, good luck to teams trying to grab a rebound this year if Asik stays...

If it's not the worst it has to be in the top-3, I can't think of one off hand though.

Howard and Asik were pretty much unstoppable on the boards, and it's not as if the Bobcats are bad rebounders, it's one of the things they do well.

I'll post college stuff in here too.

Tez, are you excited about Aussie mega-prospect Dante Exum? Think he'll play a semester of NCAA ball this spring, or will he just declare straight away for the draft? IMO he should definitely not bother with the NCAA.

For a moment there, my local club were hopeful Exum would play for us unpaid to not forgo his NCAA eligibility! But alas... I think he should just go in the draft too, he's almost certain to be a lottery pick and that's what most of the senior figures down here have encouraged him to do too.

I'll be keeping an eye on Ben Simmons over at LSU as well, we haven't had decent prospects like this in a long time! It's a shame Thon Maker (2016 #1 recruit on ESPN) probably won't suit up for Australia even though he's eligible, apparently wants to play for Canada...

On a side note, I just watched the Opening Night Introduction for the Kings... my word it's hard not to feel pumped after seeing this.

All he can do is hurt is draft stock by playing in the NCAA. He's not going to get picked over a big guy like Wiggins or Randle if all else is equal, and he could most certainly move behind Andrew Harrison (my favorite player in this amazing upcoming draft class) and maybe even Marcus Smart.

At this point he's a top 5 pick and he basically doesn't even have to play competitive basketball for the next year to keep that status. No need to rock the boat.

I actually don't care too much for Wiggins; I think Kentucky is going to run the table this year with relative ease. Hoping I can get up to Lexington and watch this super team once.

Refer to three touchdowns in an American football game as a "hat trick" and watch the reactions particularly in SEC Country™.

"The United have been good all season on the offense, with the likes of Van Persie and Rooney on their roster, and we saw another good offensive hustle from Rooney today which unfortunately he could not take across the line."
