Mercer is pretty much iconic in the Middle Georgia area, and rightfully so. To upset the Duke Blue Devils is an awesome feat. This is like comparing caviar to spam. Coach Mike Krzyzewski is probably one of the best coaches to walk this earth. And we all know Duke is one of the elite teams in the NCAA. For those of you to young to remember, a guy by the name of Sam Mitchell Jr. played for Mercer from (1981-1985) and got drafted by the Houston Rockets and played with several other teams before giving coaching a try. He was named the NBA Coach of the Year in 2006-07, after leading the Toronto Raptors to their first division title. I love it anytime Duke and Notre Dame go down. Bears!
Jeremy Lin trade rumors heat up as Houston Rockets and the Toronto Raptors might be involved in a trade deadline deal including NBA point guards Jeremy Lin and Kyle Lowry and Francisco Garcia, according to numerous sources.
Is Demar DeRozan the best Shooting Guard in the NBA!? Now that I got your attention, the answer to that question is no. However with his recent play and the recent success of the Toronto Raptors it is not crazy to say that Toronto has a top 5 if not possibly top 3 player at the Shooting Guard position. Though for a lot of people this is hard to accept and easy to brush to the side, but what Demar has done this season not only has put him in the talks of deserving an All-Star look, but also warrants the question. How good is Demar DeRozan? At this point in time, the consensus around the basketball community is that James Harden of the Houston Rockets is the best Shooting Guard in the league. Despite him playing comically bad defense, I would not disagree with this decision. Since Danny Granger’s injury, Paul George has moved over to a full time Small Forward and has been replaced at the 2 guard position by Lance Stephenson, so this takes PG out of the conversation. Arron Afflalo is also one that with the ...
By: Neal Maloney Last year we saw very different levels of development in the two young Lithuanian prospects in the NBA. One is trending upward, Jonas Valančiūnas (JV), while the other Donatas Motiejūnas (D-Mo), seems to be on a downward spiral. Both of these players were taken in the first round of the 2011 draft ;JV was the 5th pick by the Toronto Raptors, while D-Mo was chosen 20th by the Houston Rockets. Both of the teams that drafted them had high hopes and were willing to wait a year before their picks could set foot on an American basketball court. Both players had to fulfill their contract obligations on their respective Euro-league clubs. Jonas Valančiūnas is considered by the Raptors management to be "untouchable" in any trade talks , as they claim they want to "build their team around Jonas as a centerpiece". His minutes and numbers this season are reflective of the confidence the Raptors have shown JV. The 21 year-old Lithuanian is averaging 10.3 points per-game ...
Rockstarpoetry (Official) NBA Recap: Bucks ride Monta Ellis in overtime, surge past Raptors The Toronto Raptors 114 (23-37, 8-21 away) Milwaukee Bucks 122 (29-28, 15-14 home) Milwaukee, Wisconsin -- Monta Ellis did it -- again. Ellis scored six of his 23 points in overtime and Ersan Ilyasova and Brandon Jennings added five apiece in the extra period to spark the Milwaukee Bucks to a 122-114 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night. Ellis was the star of the Bucks' 110-107 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. He scored 27 points, but it was his last shot, a 3-pointer at the buzzer, that sealed the win. Against Toronto, Ellis was 9 of 18 from the floor and had five assists and rebounds and three steals. "We played hard and found a way to finish the game," Ellis said. "These last few games, I'm just taking what the defense is giving me." Ellis likes the impact that newly acquired J.J. Redick has had. "Adding J.J. to the team stretches the defense and opens up a lot of things for Bra ...

NBA Talk's Year in Review 2012: Linsanity! In December 2011, shortly after the lockout ended, a young player out of Harvard who very little knew about known as Jeremy Lin, was cut from the Golden State Warriors AND the Houston Rockets. However, things turned around for the undrafted Harvard Graduate in February 2012. Shortly after being picked up by the New York Knicks, with the team being hurt by injuries to their key players, Jeremy Lin finally received the chance to show off the talent he possessed. With D'Antoni giving him a chance due to the Knicks poor record at the time, Lin put up career highs against Deron Williams and the Nets, finishing with 25 Points, 5 Rebounds, & 7 Assists leading the Knicks to a much needed victory. This wasn't just a one time thing though. In an amazing 13 Game stretch, Lin put up averages of 22.3 PPG & 7.4 APG which including a game winning 3 Pointer against the Toronto Raptors and an epic 38 Points & 7 assists performance against Kobe Bryant and the LA Lakers where he ac ...
