Shootaround 1.7.11: Rodney Stuckey likes unicorns

Terrence Williams may see the floor, Yao Ming may not retire, and Rodney Stuckey likes unicorns (not really), all in today's Shootaround.
Posted by Matt Moore

Terrence Williams may finally get some burn in Houston. We remain skeptical, since two different coaches have yanked his playing time away. Surprising fall for the swing man. 

The Kings may be in a selling mood, but don't count Omri Casspi among the items on the front lawn. 

Even after surgery.... again, Yao Ming may not be planning on retiring.  Worse still than retiring though would be being one of those players who can't find a team to sign you because of your injury concerns.  We hope the best for Yao, but in the event that his career can't get righted, we hope he is smart enough to take the high road out.

Nets fans had low expectations of Sasha Vujacic when he arrived in the Terrence Williams trade. But he's making a believer out of them now. He hit the game winner the other night in a huge home win over the Bulls

Need4Sheed exposes Rodney Stuckey's twitter account as a bot with the headline: "Rodney Stuckey: 'I like unicorns, Cotton Candy, Star Trek and Harry Potter movies.'" 

Carlos Boozer was not exactly thrilled with being benched for the final 14 minutes in the Bulls' loss to the Nets the other night. 

In short, the Magic have a very balanced offense since the mega-trade. 

Mayor Kevin Johnson in Sacramento put together a task force towards getting a new arena. It erupted into a verbal skirmish this week. Yeah, things are going that well. 

Tyler Hansbrough will start at power forward for the Pacers, a sign of the desperation mounting in Indiana. 

Suddenly Jodie Meeks being back in the lineup is a big deal. Strange times.

The watchful eye of King James

Posted by Matt Moore

As we told you in the Shootaround this morning, LeBron James had something to say on Twitter to all his critics of this past summer:


















Oooh, I'm so scared! What are you gonna do, use your extremely powerful position as the best player in the NBA and a multi-national business force, not to mention being a physically dominant human being to enact retribution on those that have criticized you?

...

This sounds famliar .

Anyway, not everyone is wetting themselves like I am at the prospect (love you, King!), including SBNation.com's Holly Anderson, who decided to have a little fun with James last night. Anderson posted a series of other (fake) proclamations from LeBron to his critics. My personal favorite?



Click through to read them all. Just don't tell you-know-who.

Chris Bosh is pretty excited about LeBron James

Posted by Matt Moore

Chris Bosh was quick to get on Twitter and express his happiness about LeBron James choosing the Heat.

 

Bosh was rumored to be wanting to be featured as a centerpiece, but in the end, he becomes the third option. He'll certainly have a chance to get more exposure now, but he will not be the first one mentioned. The names will be James and Wade... and Chris Bosh. But in the end, Bosh chose the place that gave him the best chance to win a championship. And now he's going to be a part of something really special. He has the best teammates he could ask for. He has a piece of the spotlight. And when he tweets, the whole world will listen, now.
