    Honestly, aside from the whining I can't think of another guy that could give young guys tips about the game and how to approach it.

    For those who might wonder why Devin Booker's name hasn't been mentioned for Team USA.

    Not too surprising as he had a injury hampered year last year. He really wants to turn things around with the team this year and having a healthy Booker out of the gates will help a lot in that regard.

    I'm glad to hear there was a good reason behind Booker not being invited. He needs to get healthy before the coming season.

    Bender signs with Milwaukee.

    The Milwaukee Suns. Now it’s 5. Bledsoe, Bender, Robin Lopez, Leuer, even Korver.

    Got to give credit to the photographer who took that shot and the PR department that is pushing it out there. That is one of the best non-NBA pictures I've seen. That's begging to be made a logo or something. It's a great picture to announce a sponsorship deal for him.

    It reminds me a bit of the artistic renderings of SkyBox basketball cards of the 1990s.

    That story is so depressing. And was the first inkling that we got into the mind of our (at the time) new owner. I think Brian Colangelo knew right then and there that he needed to get the hell out of dodge.

    All for 5 million dollars.

    If Portland's season is near, can the Suns be far behind? I need some basketball.
