Antawn Jamison: I won’t re-sign with Cleveland Cavaliers

"I understand the importance of Tristan (Thompson) and these younger guys getting the opportunity to play," he continued. "I’ve taught them so much and it’s been fun teaching them, but it’s time for me to move on as well. I don’t know what the future holds, I don’t know what opportunity might present itself, but I definitely have a great feeling this is probably my last home game and tomorrow will be my last game as a Cav."

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Antawn Jamison is done mentoring a bad Cleveland Cavaliers squad and wants to win -even if it costs him millions of dollars.

The veteran forward will become a free agent in July when his $15 million per year contract expires. Expect Jamison to take the Mini Mid Level Exception and join a contender as a second-unit scorer.

Of course, there are the usual concerns when an established player takes a lesser role. In fact, some can’t do it (think Allen Iverson, Steve ’Finer Things’ Francis, and Stephon Marbury).

But Jamison is a different breed. He’s always been a team-first guy, volunteering to come off the bench during his prime with the Dallas Mavericks and conceding the spotlight to a brash Gilbert Arenas with the Washington Wizards.

So Jamison told the inquiring media before the Cavaliers’ final home game that he was likely moving on. The future, however, looks good with Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson.

Stephon Marbury is real life Mr. Baseball, winning championship in China

Beijing Ducks, led by former NBA star Stephon Marbury who notched game-high 41 points on Friday night, clinched their first-ever title of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) league. Edging defending champions Guangdong Hongyuan 124-121 at home, Beijing Ducks, who entered the finals for the first time, won 4-1 on aggregate in the best-of-seven series. Guangdong had been crowned seven times in the past eight seasons.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: I have a confession. I never thought Stephon Marbury would be a champion in any league or at anything.

After all, Marbury had toxic traits -wearing out his welcome in Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Phoenix, and the entire NBA.

Things often got weird, too. There was his bizarre interview where he referred to his wife has his better ‘ho’. There was his preacher-like sermon when the Knicks acquired Zach Randolph. There was his role in Isiah Thomas’ sexual harassment case. There was his banishment from the New York Knicks and some bizarre youtube clips.

Too Marbury’s credit, he has moved on. The past is the past. In China, he won a championship, sold sneakers, and even served as a go-between when J.R. Smith got into trouble with his Chinese club a few months ago.

The entire episode reminds me of the redemption flick Mr. Baseball, where Tom Selleck finds his way in Japan after bottoming out with the New York Yankees. 

So, wll Marbury stay in China or return to America if he scored an offer from an NBA side? Whatever happens, it will be interesting. Things always are with Marbury.

J.R. Smith fined for tweeting revealing pic’ of Tahiri

New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith has been fined $25,000 for posting “inappropriate pictures” on his Twitter account, the NBA said Saturday.  Smith posted a picture of a scantily-clad woman on his feed on Thursday.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: New team, same J.R. Smith.

On Friday, the talented but controversial shooting guard tweeted a revealing picture of Tahiri, a  model who dated rapper Joe Budden.

Where to begin?

Smith, who is supposedly rebuilding his image and NBA career with the New York Knicks, is again causing problems. This is hardly a surprise.

After bouncing around the NBA, he found a home with the Denver Nuggets. Well, sort of -Smith and Coach George Karl rarely spoke, preferring to communicate through assistant coaches.

Smith signed in China during the lockout, but racked up six-figures in fines that left 'good citizen' Stephon Marbury negotiating with the club on his behalf.  

Reports are surfacing that New York superstar Carmelo Anthony, and Smith's teammate in Denver, didn’t approve of the Knicks signing the three-point shooter.

Anthony, who is no stranger to dysfunction and controversy, felt Smith would be too great a distraction.

The Knicks ignored Anthony, signed Smith, and are paying for it.

Allen Iverson: ‘I ain’t no damn mob boss’

"I'm as clean as the Board of Health man."Iverson denied playing any role in a 2009 bar fight at the South Beach Pizza Bar nightclub inside the Fisher Building. He said he hired bodyguards, including a pre-Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee, to stay out of trouble."I get sued for stuff I don't got nothing to do with. I ain't involved with. Ain't nobody never said ... I touched them," Iverson, 36, said. "I don't do nothing to nobody, buddy."Lattimer had a quick reply."The head honcho ain't supposed to," he said. Iverson: "Yeah, I ain't no damn mob boss. I don't live my life like that. I got five kids. I don't put that on their head. That's a fairytale that y'all living in …"


HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: This won't help.

A few days ago, HoopsVibe News reported on Allen Iverson's desire to return to the NBA. Unlike past comeback attempts, Iverson's people claimed he'd accept a bench role and had matured.

This, according to Iverson's management, would make him an ideal second-unit game-changer for a contender -such as, say, the Boston Celtics.

Personable Celtics coach Doc Rivers has a track record of succeeding with troubled players (see Stephon Marbury and Nate Robinson).

Even a charismatic players' coach like Rivers would surely shy away from Iverson and his considerable issues. For instance, in a recent civil case, 'The Answer' announced that 'he ain't a mob boss' and was as 'clean as the board of the health'.

Good to know. But how would such a dominant personality play in a veteran locker room full of dominant personalities?

Simply put, Iverson is too great a risk for the Celtics. At the best of times, he's a distraction. At the worst of time, he saps all life from a team.

All this for a reserve who wouldn't see major minutes behind Rajon Rondo or Ray Allen in the backcourt.

The Celtics should pass. There will be plenty of bargains with far less baggage when the season finally begins.

Marbury: Carmelo Would Fail in China

“I don’t think those guys will want to go through it,” said Marbury, who is training in Los Angeles. “China is not for everybody — a whole ‘nother world. I don’t think they’re going to go there, not the big-time guys. Maybe they’d come for a little bit, but if the season is cancelled for the year, I don’t think they’d want to stay. They’ll want to go home.

“I don’t think Carmelo Anthony is going to run like they want to run in practice,” Marbury added. “They want to run you to death. The first time I got there, they ran in practice for two straight hours. I said, ‘Is that what we have to do every practice?’ “

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Guess who’s again making headlines?

Stephon Marbury, the troubled and controversial former NBA point guard, believes the New York Knicks` Carmelo Anthony wouldn’t be up to the rigors of pro’ ball in China.

Marbury, of course, is an expert on Chinese basketball. He’s also an expert on coming up short -just in the good old United States of America.

After bottoming out of the NBA for interesting behaviour off-court, he found a nice landing spot pushing his skill and sneaks in the world’s greatest economy.

However, Marbury can’t compare his situation to what Melo` or any NBA All-Star would face abroad.

Back then Marbury was desperate. He needed China to save his career on-court and to hawk his goods on billions of people.

Melo’ does not need China. Not now anyway. He has leverage, meaning he’d dictate terms on practice, travel, and anything else.

Marbury is clearly taking a shot at the Knicks’ newest star. After all, the Steph’ era was ushered out in favour of collecting cap space to sign/trade for big-ticket talents like Anthony.

Once again, Marbury is making headlines. Like always, it`s for the wrong reasons.

Rumor: Celtics interested in Kurt Thomas?

Every team could use an enforcer and, in that category, there's no better free agent available than Thomas. As with every veteran free agent, Boston will use its championship potential as its best pitch.

Link

HoopsVibe`s Very Quick Call: They need a post. He needs a championship. So the Boston Celtics and Kurt Thomas seem a fit.

In February, the Celtics traded starting center Kendrick Perkins to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Jeff Green. The green-and-white clearly missed Perkins' toughness, defense, and rebounding.

Nenad Krstic, who was included in the Perkins-for-Green deal, recently signed a long-term deal in Europe, while Glen 'Big Baby' Davis, when not fishing for lobsters, seems determined to leave when the lockout ends.

The Celtics have a hole down low. Thomas, a cross between Perkins and Davis, might be the answer.

Like Perkins, Thomas has presence. His shoulders are wide. His elbows are razor sharp. And his screens are lethal.

Like Davis, Thomas has skill. As a senior, he led the NCAA in scoring and rebounding. And he has a jump-shot, especially off pick-and-pops.

Then there's Thomas' demeanour. He's always professional, but has no problem calling out a teammate in the wrong –like Stephon Marbury.

The only downside is age. Thomas is 39, so the veteran-laden Celtics wouldn't get younger or more athletic.

Everything else works. Perhaps the Celtics and Thomas join forces for one last run at a championship.

Rumor: Kobe Bryant to tour China during lockout?

Kobe Bryant may take his talents to China during the NBA's lockout. There are preliminary talks about a basketball tour to China this summer — and perhaps beyond — in which the Lakers superstar, who has called China a "home away from home" and has an enormous following there, would be the headliner with several other NBA stars forming two or three barnstorming teams.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: China is Kobe Bryant’s home-away-from-home. And with the NBA in lockout mode, Bryant plans on spending time in his second favourite country.

However, his visit will be both business and pleasure.

Bryant’s agent, Rob Pelinka, is planning a tour of China, which would include exhibition matches with various pro’ players.

Don’t get it twisted, this is about branding. Bryant, like Stephon Marbury, realizes China is the world’s most lucrative market. A tour would help him sell anything and everything to a basketball mad market.

While the NBA is on hiatus, the business of basketball will clearly continue.

Rumor: Knicks thinking Through The Fire with Sebastian Telfair

The Knicks have had multiple discussions with the Timberwolves about acquiring Sebastian Telfair, according to an executive involved in the talks.
 
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Coney Island could be returning to New York.

It’s not what you think: the Knicks aren’t reconciling with Stephon Marbury -also known as the man who eats Vaseline and calls his wife his ‘better ho’ in a televised interview. Besides, Marbury isn’t done hawking kicks in China.

The Knicks are instead talking to the Minnesota Timberwolves about acquiring his less talented (but less insane) cousin Sebastian Telfair.

The Knicks do need a back-up for table-setter Ray Felton. Telfair will be available once the Timberwolves get Jonny Flynn back from injury.

Coming home might be trouble for Telfair, who was once arrested in New York on gun possession charges with childhood friends. There was also a bizarre incident involving Brooklyn rapper Fabolous and an expensive chain.

Much of this isn’t Telfair’s fault. As a high school prodigy, he was given too much too soon -including being the subject of the documentary Through The Fire.

So Telfair and the city of New York have history. The Knicks need to think if they want to take such a risk on a back-up point guard.

Amar’e Stoudemire and Ray Felton saving New York Knicks

After a difficult start to the 10-11 season, Amar'e Stoudemire and Raymond Felton took control of the Knicks' locker room and the team responded with a five-game winning streak.
 
 
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Talent matters. So does chemistry.

For instance, the New York Knicks once spent a fortune amassing a roster of fantasy players. These players were individually talented, but never made those around them better.

Stephon Marbury was worried about his brand. Zach Randolph was worried about his statistics, while Eddy Curry was worried about, well, something other than basketball.

Other Knicks were also guilty of me-disease. They played basketball like it was an individual sport. The four other guys wearing the same uniform were a nuisance to achieving their goal.

Much of this goes back to the Isiah Thomas era. Zeke’s get-mine approach in the executive suite trickled directly down to the players.

It has taken years to rid Madison Square Gardens of this dysfunction. Now the Knicks are flying high, though. They’re playing team-first basketball. They’ve won 8 of 9.

Their recent success is due to the leadership of two players: Ray Felton and Amar’e Stoudemire.

Not long ago, the Knicks were struggling. They weren’t together. They were disjointed. And they were 3-9.

The media was circling. Executive Donnie Walsh and Coach Mike D’Antoni were on shaky ground. And Stoudemire, who signed a $100 million free agent contract this summer, seemed like a mistake.

Felton and Stoudemire stepped up on-and off court. They took control of the locker room by challenging others to improve their play. They started using the pick-and-roll to terrorize opponents.

It’s ironic that the change started with these two.

Before signing with New York this July, Felton had a mostly mixed run in Charlotte. He wasn’t a bust; however, he was behind other point guards from the 2005 draft like Deron Williams and Chris Paul.

Fair or not, Stoudemire also had a mixed reputation. He gave himself the nickname Standing Tall and Talented, and has been known to call himself Black Jesus.

Individually great, Stoudemire never made those around him better. His gaudy numbers were seen as a result of Phoenix teammate Steve Nash.

Well, Felton has taken a giant step. As has Stoudemire. Together, they're creating a new era of Knick basketball.

Marbury on Isiah’s return: ‘Good luck, New York’

Stephon Marbury told The Post yesterday that he is done with the NBA. He will never get a second chance with the Knicks like Isiah Thomas, whose NBA life was resuscitated by James Dolan on Friday.

"Good luck, New York," Marbury said wryly in reacting to Thomas' return to the Knicks as a part-time consultant. "Good luck, New York."

Link

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Do I detect a note of sarcasm from the one they call The Starbury?

Stephon Marbury and Isiah Thomas were once allies with the New York Knicks. Thomas traded for Marbury, a former New York high school star. And for a while, the two were connected at the hip.

Once the losing started, once the negative press began, once Thomas' sexual harassment case made national headlines, they turned on each other.

Marbury refused to support Thomas and the organization during the sexual harassment case. The problems then spilled over to the basketball court, and the two had a confrontation on the team plane. For their shenanigans, both were run out the NBA.

There is a difference between these two: Thomas is getting a second chance, Marbury is not.

Perhaps, Marbury's sarcasm is really sour grapes.

Celtics and Shaq will work because of clarity

Celtics fans may get the chance to see how well Shaquille O'Neal's hyperbole or ego mix with a bench role. The Celtics, [a] source said, have told O'Neal that he has to come off the bench next season, and that O'Neal said he could accept a reserve role for the first time in his career.

Link

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Clarity is the key.

Credit the Boston Celtics for telling Shaquille O'Neal - one of the NBA's top 50 players of all time - that he would play a role for the green-and-white.

O'Neal also deserves credit -if he signs with the Celtics and comes off the bench. After all, how many aging superstars have killed their careers by making unrealistic demands?

Last I checked, Allen Iverson and Stephon Marbury are out the league because they had to start. Tracy McGrady's career is almost over, in part, because he doesn't want to become a reserve.

Signing with the Celtics will prolong O'Neal's career and give him a chance at a fifth NBA Title. All he had to do was swallow his ego.

Memo to Marbury: Why you will never play for the Miami Heat!

Stephon Marbury told the New York Post on Sunday that he didn't turn down a chance to play for the Heat. In fact, Marbury still hasn't given up hope on playing for Miami.

Marbury said a Chinese reporter mixed up the translation of his remarks and that it was falsely reported he had rejected an offer from the Heat. He told the Post that Miami contacted him in early July before LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh joined forces. The Heat told him they would get back to him after "they handled all the things they had to handle."

"It's total nonsense, why would I turn down a chance to play for the Miami Heat?" Marbury said. "The report was a fabrication."

Link

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Ah Steph', it's not happening. You wil never play for the Miami Heat.

Forgive me for being blunt, but such a tone is necessary when dealing with the delusional Stephon Marbury, who still believes he has a chance of suiting up with the Three kings in Miami.

He doesn't. Here's why:

1) Marbury and LeBron James don't like each other. At least, The King doesn't jive with Starbury. As The Man in Miami, he won't forgive and forget by extending an olive branch to an over-the-hill, attention-seeking point guard.   

2) Miami already has three point guards on the roster: Carlos Arroyo, Mario Chalmers, and James. There is no role or minutes for Marbury.

3) It's all risk, no reward in Miami. Suppose they sign Marbury. He'd rarely play and they'd be risking a Starbury meltdown, which would bring more media attention.

Marbury isn't a bad guy, though. He has given back to his native New York. His signature shoe is apparently thriving.

However, he must face facts: his time in the NBA is over. Done. Finished.

Instead of plotting on an NBA comeback, he should continue playing overseas in China or do a tour in Italy or Greece -something he always wanted to do.

Anything is better than the current nonsense.

Miami Heat will NOT sign Stephon Marbury

Stephon Marbury said Friday that he is looking for a place to play in China, but the Heat have showed interest in signing him.

"I'll wait and see what'll happen," Marbury said during an interview with the Chinese media.

Link

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: The source, Stephon Marbury, isn't reliable.

For the sake of argument, we'll humour him, though. Perhaps, the Miami Heat had interest in Marbury before signing Chris Bosh, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade.

The Three Kings changed things.

James and Marbury aren't friends, so landing the two-time MVP ended whatever shot Starbury had of returning to the NBA with the Heat.

Clearly, Marbury missed the memo. His recent comments also show that he missed Miami's signing of Carlos Arroyo, who will split minutes at point guard with Mario Chalmers and James.

With three table-setters on the roster, there'd be no room for the self proclaimed Starbury.

It's Europe or China for Marbury. There will be no NBA or Heat.

Timing terrible for Colangelo and Raptors to unload Calderon, Jack, and Turkoglu

Meanwhile, the Raptors are not just sitting around. Rather, Colangelo is shopping Hedo Turkoglu, Jose Calderon, and Jarrett Jack with an eye toward making trades before July 1. The same source told me that a Turkoglu trade was already in the works and could happen by the draft.

Link

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call ... Bryan Colangelo, the Toronto Raptors' GM, has a unique skill: he admits mistakes and takes action.
 
The two-time Executive of the Year doesn't bother with should have, could have, or would have; he simply cuts his losses and moves on.
 
This management philosophy has worked before. While working as the Phoenix Suns' head suit, Colangelo quickly realized Stephon Marbury was a time bomb and traded the troubled guard and his max' contract to the New York Knicks for cap space. He then used that cap space to sign Steve Nash and Seven Seconds Or Less was born.
 
Other times this approach has been a wash. A couple of years ago, Colangelo acquired Jermaine O'Neal. However, it soon became evident the former All-Star wasn't regaining his past form, so O'Neal was dealt to Miami for Shawn Marion, who was mediocre in a half season in Toronto.
 
There are other examples, but you get the idea. Colangelo doesn't waste time when things sour.
 
Well, this summer he doesn't have a moment to waste. Literally. Reports indicate the Raptors are looking to get several mistakes off their books at once.   
 
This is the closest Colangelo will come to admitting his vision for the Raptors was flawed and has failed. How else should fans interpret the news he wants to part with Jose Calderon, Jarrett Jack, and Hedo Turkoglu?
 
Weren't these the GM's guys? Weren't these the players to turn Toronto into an Eastern Conference contender? 
 
Calderon was Colangelo's pick to start at point guard. The organization overlooked his defensive limitations and fragile body, signing him to a five year, $45 million pact.
 
When Calderon couldn't handle the load, Colangelo signed Jack, the competitive combo guard to a five year, $20 million contract. 
 
Of course, his biggest blunder was Turkoglu. Months after leading the Orlando Magic to the NBA Finals, the Turkish swing was handed a five year, $53 million package by Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE), the wealthy holding company that owns the Raptors.
 
Turkoglu's year in The Big Smoke was a disaster. He arrived at training camp looking like a Euro' version of Oliver Miller, played poorly all year, and was more interested in clubbing than basketball. Then he demanded a trade.
 
Clearly, Colangelo must put in work. Only his timing couldn't be worse.
 
After all, the era of big ticket contracts is gone. In this economy few teams can afford to trade for eight figure problems. And the ones that can are hoarding cap space to sign free agents.
 
And this is also the summer of 2010. The organization is supposed to be consumed with one thing: Chris Bosh's highly publicized free agency.
 
Colangelo has to bring back his franchise face or score the best possible package in a sign-and-trade. Either option won't be easy. And either option will affect Toronto for years to come.
 
Yet, he's instead investing considerable time and energy on cleaning up his mistakes: Calderon, Jack, and Turkoglu.
 
Colangelo must right things this summer. Or the powers that be within MLSE will, perhaps, consider his hiring a mistake.
