Talk Around the Hardwood

Anyone else having NBA withdrawal? Even though summer league is going strong, I want to see real NBA basketball right now. Guess I'll just have to wait a while longer. Let's link!

  • Dallas Basketball. Marcin Donuts: 12 Things To Know About Gortat.
  • TMZ (via NBA Playoffs 2009). Trevor Ariza parties on his 24th birthday. Here's also a photo gallery.
  • Seattle Post-Intelligence. Jannero Pargo is officially a Bull.
  • Miami Herald. Allen Iverson asked for the $5.8 million midlevel exception from the Heat in a one-year deal, but Miami has been reluctant to pay him much more than $2 million, if that. Iverson also is exploring Memphis and Charlotte, but Miami would be his preference if money is equal.
  • Need For Sheed. Arron Afflalo dealt to the Nuggets for cap space.
  • Project Spurs. Nice breakdown of the Spurs first game at the Las Vegas Summer League. George Hill and DeJuan Blair were great.
  • Truehoop. I know you all read Truehoop, but their Summer League roundups are great. Check out this and day three's roundups.
