Now here’s an interesting little item for your smartphone: From BallinEurope’s friends at Ganon Baker Basketball comes the iJump App, a nice bit of software that seeks to improve your vertical leap through a series of workouts.
While so much attention is paid to the upcoming Olympics and warm-up games, a number of European players have quietly gone about their business in the NBA Summer Leagues in Vegas and Orlando. BallinEurope’s man in the U.K., Sam Chadwick, takes a look at an extended roster’s worth of European ballers’ performances in the Orlando […]
While basketball lovers are getting something of a Christmas gift this season in the December 25 NBA opening day – BiE says “something of” there because this belated debut is kinda like your parents saying, “Well, we’ll just give you your birthday gift at Christmas.” When your birthday’s in October – BallinEurope would like to […]
After another couple weeks of speculation, hype and quotage, it’s time for BallinEurope to revisit the odds: specifically speaking, the odds on NBA players coming to play ball on The Continent in 2011-12. Once again, should note that these lines are offered at no bookmaker service and are completely arbitrary (which is to say mostly […]
First, BallinEurope would like to a couple more American players to The Continent, as Milwaukee Bucks second-round draft pick Jon Leuer has signed with the Bundesliga’s Frankfurt Skyliners to play during the NBA lockout and undrafted Colorado State University forward Andy Ogide has joined the ranks of LEB club Breogán. But as the BiE schadenfreudometer […]
After seeing the new starting lineup for the Phoenix Suns against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday – featuring Hakim Warrick on the floor for the opening tipoff and Hedo Turkoglu back to his familiar role coming in off the bench, BallinEurope got to thinking about the well-traveled Turk and his effect on various teams as […]
Jake Stephens, he of “Napoleon Dynamite” fame stars in certainly the best and funniest fantasy basketball ad campaign ever. ESPN’s fantasy basketball ads feature Stephens (who apparently has some serious access to much-wanted mobile phone numbers) exhorting his charges to, you know, win one for the fantasy team.
From the Gotta Love A Recap Department, BallinEurope brings a handful of YouTubes from last night’s AJ Milano-New York Knicks NBA Europe Live Tour matchup in Italy. Despite taking a 43-41 lead in the second quarter, Milano eventually succumbed to the Knicks, 125-113. Knickerbocker backers were certainly pleased as punch with new co-captain Amare Stoudamire […]
How did the Knicks scoop the Nets on this one? And does Mikhail Prokhorov know about this? The New York Times, among other sources, reported last night that BC Moscow Khimki region center Timofey Mozgov has signed a three-year, $10 million deal with the New York Knicks. The move comes as a bit of a […]
Crazy, but amazingly perfect. ESPN.com, among others, is reporting that not only have the Phoenix Suns acquired Hedo Turkoglu via trade with the Toronto Raptors, but that a sign-and-trade with the Atlanta Hawks has been worked out for Olympiacos’ Josh Childress. Leandro Barbosa would be sent to the Raptors in pretty much a straight-up trade, […]
About a day remains before Lebron James presents his version of The Big Reveal, spilling his guts before hundreds of media members like an NCAA prospect officially choosing a uni. (Hey, maybe Lebron should spread three baseball caps in front of him, pick one up and put it on his head…) On the eve of […]
One more time, then. BallinEurope’s man in the U.K., Sam Chadwick concludes this website’s official mock draft with his final 15 choices for round two. As for BiE, well, even if there’s a lack of players from The Continent forecast for picks 46-60, i’m still pleased as punch a UNM alma mater gets in there… […]
