  • In a fitting retrospective of their careers , Michael Jordan will introduce Scottie Pippen at Friday's Hall of Fame induction ceremony.  Hopefully Jordan won't stop to make time to list off the remainders on his personal hitlist like last year. Pippen's speech is expected to be more of the traditional Hall of Fame speech, filled with gratitude toward teammates and humility. Though from what we know of Scottie, anything's possible.
  • Steve Nash has entered into business with a new firm merging venture capital and brand management. It's yet another indication that Nash's influence likely won't stop when his playing days are through. Nash has diversified his interests into business, charities, media, the works.
  • The NBA's overseas expansion continues, as the Raptors and Nets will play two regular season games in London next season. It's a fine effort for the league to try and grab some headlines with and to expand its global presence, but it's a back to back with an overseas flight bookending the games. That's going to wreak havoc on those team's schedules. Even with the low expectations for those two teams this year, that's a rough turn.
  • Donnie Walsh's contract must be extended by March 11th, 2011 . The Knicks will decide on whether to extend Walsh for that fourth year by then. Keep that in mind with all this talk of Isiah Thomas returning to the fold.
  • Eric Musselman has been tabbed as the Reno Bighorns' newest coach in the NBA D-League. Musselman was a D-League commentator last year for Versus.

Right.... I don't get it. They were close, then they lost. Its not like they were even leading at that point... USA is the favorites and will win. Durant will lead us to victory and emerge as the best player in the NBA this year. Plus Westbrook and Rose will shine against those smaller guards. There's no way Rubio is stopping either one of them from penetrating.
