I know that this is a New Orleans Hornets blog, but times are slow in the basketball world and things ‘aint easy being a blogger. With that I thought I’d round up some of the events in the NBA world, albeit somewhat dull.
- This one’s from a while back, and some may already of read it, but it’s about Trevor Ariza. It’s an interview between he and the Land ‘O Lakers. Here’s an excerpt:
I started to get a whole lot of attention in the 10th grade. That’s when I kind of came out of a little bit of a shell, or whatever, as far as basketball was concerned. I stopped being so goofy. For a high school kid, my game matured a little faster. It got better from the ninth to tenth grade. Night and day, in understanding the level of competition, and understanding what I was trying to do, and my goals and all that.
- There’s headline’s flying all around here in my country, Australia. Andrew Bogut is strongly rumoured to be playing in the NBL if there is a lockout that cancels out games. He’s linked with the Perth Wildcats, Adelaide 36ers and my team the Sydney Kings. For those that don’t know the NBL used to be a top-flight league a long time ago. The league went defunct a few years ago and is on the return. With Patty Mills returning to play for the Melbourne Tigers it would create a huge buzz if Bogut were to return too.
- Marco Belinelli had 19 points on 13 shots against France the other day. The Italians lost 91-84 in a closely contested match. Beli also had 3 assists, 2 rebounds and shot 4 of 8 from three point range.
- Hey did you know that after a hard work-out (one where you sweat and increase your heart rate significantly i.e. running not walking) that you keep burning calories off? David West was featured in an article where new research displays the benefits of hard workouts.
