The Footie at related • 0 views

The government-run Chinese media doesn't always have the most accurate information. That was again proven on Thursday when a Chinese media outlet claimed that Kobe Bryant signed with Shanxi of the Chinese Basketball Association. That report ended up being untrue.

Although Kobe Bryant is negotiating with Chinese teams, he hasn't agreed to a deal.

Existing in the shadow of Bayern Munich's much more popular football team, the club's title-winning basketball team wanted to draw some attention their way at the end of last season. So, head coach Dirk Bauermann came up with an idea.

From the AFP:

"With five games remaining, we won the championship (in 2011) and Bastian Schweinsteiger could have actually played for us at the time," Bauermann wrote in his new book, which has been serialised in German daily Bild.

During November and December 2010, the Oregon Ducks men's basketball team had some nasty losses. Granted, nothing much was expected of the Ducks last season, but still, the losses were painful. By New Year's Day, Oregon fell four times to teams ranked outside the top 100 in the RPI, and three of those games were at home.

New York Knicks rookie bigman Josh Harrellson got the start on Saturday night and was really impressive as the Knicks defeated the Sacramento Kings. He had 14 points and 12 rebounds, while nailing 4-of-8 from downtown. In the fantasy basketball world, those stats look like gold for a player available on the waiver wire.

If your fantasy basketball team is struggling to find a center, consider looking at a sleeper such as Byron Mullens of the Charlotte Bobcats. While the 7-footer out of Ohio State is barely owned in fantasy leagues, his potential is relatively high.

Barcelona Harlem team

The way Barcelona plays when it is one of their best days, is just like Harlem dream basketball team in the late 1970s. Messi, Xavi and Iniesta did big show of magic while Arsenal joined the crowd and preferred to enjoy the show, rather than to disrupt it.

The first goal explained it all: attack with quick passes to penetrate from the middle, a lot of pressing by the midfield and extra-ordinary day for Messi.

Like many Seattle sports fans, I've never seen any of my teams win anything. I've seen plenty of them get close; the 2001 Mariners were the best baseball team ever assembled, but they faded in the playoffs. Then there were 2005 Seahawks, and the less said about that the better. The 2008 University of Memphis men's basketball team were seconds away before Mario Chalmers happened.
