Gary Harris and Adreian Payne realize Michigan State can do something special in college basketball this season.
They believe the Spartans can win the national championship, and that’s why they decided to stay in college one more season rather than go to the NBA.

For up-and-coming teams, the regular season is a way for them to grow into an elite team.
For horrible teams, this year’s regular season is about getting many ping-pong balls to help their chances of getting Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Julius Randle, Marcus Smart, Aaron Gordon and Dante Exum.

With the basketball season upon us, with all kinds of news being made, with the college and pro game making news 24/7, it’s enjoyable to re-visit how some hoop names came to be.
ALL-WORLD Lloyd Free, National Basketball Association free soul, who learned his basketball on the sidewalks of New York, gave himself this nickname. Free was a little man in a world of giants who considered his "rainbow shot," which went high in the air and down at the basket, worthy of the nickname he dreamed up.

The Brooklyn Nets were born Friday night. After being irrelevant by underachieving and being boring in their first season in Brooklyn last season, the Nets made a statement that they are not the same old Nets anymore after their 101-100 victory over the Heat at the Barclays Center.
Don’t let the final score fool you. The Nets outsmarted and outworked the Heat for most of the game. Yes, the Heat made a run in the end, but that’s basketball where teams always make a run. The Nets were not losing this one after they took an 11-point lead for most of the fourth quarter.
