(C)Raptor out for the season

I seriously can't be the only one who read this and laughed. Reminds me of a certain gif...

Top 10 Active "Scorers" Without an All-Star Selection (By total career points)

Six of the players on the list are current or former Warriors. Coincidence? Granted, none of the ex-Warriors really deserved it anyway, but we are talking about a general voter base that values PPG more than anything else in the league.

Anthony Davis Trademarks Unibrow Phrases

Just something silly that's somewhat related to all the draft chatter.

"Monta left some big shoes to fill, but I know I'm not trying to replace Monta," Thompson said. "I...

"Monta left some big shoes to fill, but I know I'm not trying to replace Monta," Thompson said. "I don't feel any pressure because we're two totally different players. I'm trying to go out there and play my game within the flow of the offense. I'm not trying to score in bunches, and trying to score 40 a game. I'm just trying to play efficiently, play smartly and get my teammates involved."

This kid actually gets it. The Klay-Curry backcourt is going to be very interesting to watch once Steph's ankle is 100%.

Official Terms of NBA's Tentative Labor Deal

Uses Google Docs. I'll probably start picking at it in detail when I'm done studying for finals, though the terms don't exactly appear too favorable for either side at first glance. It almost looks like the infamous "ultimatum offer," but scaled back a ton so the players aren't utterly shafted. Thoughts?

Michael Wilbon: My theory always has been that LeBron doesn't yet know how to finish these games,...

Michael Wilbon: My theory always has been that LeBron doesn't yet know how to finish these games, that much like the great high school players before him, LeBron missed out on a critical part of the apprenticeship served by great players who learned how to deal with huge moments in the crucible that is March Madness. Players from Russell to Alcindor to Magic and Bird to Isiah to Olajuwon to Jordan to Wade all learned how to play in June by first playing with great success at the end of March. It took Garnett, Kobe and now LeBron longer to conquer that part of the game, and you can look it up. It took Garnett seemingly a dozen years to get out of the first round of the playoffs...

Other notable straight-from-high-school guys without playoff success, much less a ring: Dwight Howard, Tracy McGrady, Amar'e Stoudamire, Josh Smith, and our very own Monta Ellis. Some food for thought.

Spurs sign Da'Sean Butler

This kinda-sorta pertains to the Warriors in that there is one less option at swingman in free agency this offseason, should Reggie decide to get the hell outta here and away from this mess of a franchise especially after his poor treatment this season. If Butler makes a full recovery from that ACL injury, this would be a great pickup for San Antonio.

We all might be seeing more of this in the near future... hey, they even did this play against the Magic. Oh the irony...

Patty Mills apparently a RFA? (Blazersedge Fanshot)

From Blazersedge: "Mike Barrett was fairly emphatic Monday night that signing Armon Johnson ended Patty Mills chance of being signed by the Blazers. While that likely will be the outcome, Brian T. Smith took the time to clarify Mills' position with the team." Read the actual article here: http://www.columbian.com/weblogs/blazerbanter/2010/aug/03/notes-mills-still-belongs-to-blazers/ So, we maybe could have snagged the St. Mary's alum by offering a little more than the $1M qualifying offer the Blazers gave him, but instead we shell out $2.4M for Jannero freaking Pargo? Ugh...

Spurs sign Tiago Splitter

He probably has the most awesome name ever. It's been 3 years since he's been drafted, but we finally get to see this guy play in the NBA. He runs the floor well for his size and is supposedly good on the pick-and-roll. If Splitter can contribute immediately, the Spurs look like they'll have a pretty bright future ahead with George Hill and Splitter forming another 1-2 punch.

Buike Underwent Another Knee Surgery?

Apparently he had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee for tendinitis (the torn patella tendon was on his left). It's not looking good for Buike's explosiveness next season.

It's Official: Caron Butler to the Mavs for Josh Howard

To Mavs: Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood, DeShawn Stevenson To Wizards: Josh Howard, Drew Gooden, James Singleton, Quinton Ross Looks like the Wizards are really clearing out their roster for cap space. I expect ex-Warrior Antawn Jamison to be dealt before the deadline too.

Blake Griffin out for the season.

The Clippers curse continues. That makes, what, two #1's in the last three years to go down with a bum knee in their first NBA season? Good luck to Blake Griffin with his recovery and hopefully his luck is better than Greg Oden's when it comes to injuries. This just paves the way for Tyreke Evans to take ROY honors. Looks like Sacramento wasn't so screwed after all, even after tanking last season and only coming up with the 4th overall pick.

Former Warrior Tim Hardaway to have jersey retired by Miami

The "T" of Run-TMC during the Warrior's glory days will be having his #10 jersey retired by the Miami Heat. It's great to see him being honored for his excellent play during the course of his career. As a five time All-Star and All-NBA selection, he definitely deserves this. By the way, Chris Mullin still has yet to see his number hang on the rafters. Even Mitch Richmond had his #2 retired by the Kings.
