Pretty entertaining video promoting the upcoming FIBA World Championships in Turkey.
One little flaw — about half these guys may not play. Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol have hinted they may take the summer off. Tony Parker is out injured now and may take the summer off to truly recover. And the list goes on, but at least they didn’t put LeBron James in the video.
And sorry Raptors fans, but you knew you were going to see a lot of Turkoglu in this.
Report: Bulls close to deal with former Celtic R.J. Hunter
Hunter belongs in the league. Though he must knock down shots far more reliably than he has, Hunter has potential as an outside shooter with complementary ball skills to provide value. Boston just had more NBA-caliber players than roster spots.
He’s far from a lock to succeed in the NBA, but I value Hunter about as much as Tony Snell – whom the Bulls just traded for an upgrade at backup point guard in Michael Carter-Williams. That they could so cheaply replace Snell makes that deal look even better.
