    Not all of the individual stats are very impressive (some are actually pretty disappointing) but still seeing 16 former Duke players making it in the nba box scores is pretty impressive: http://huckleberry.mhc.edu/devilStats.html

    Edit: A few of the Dukies came to play though (namely Irving and Dunleavy)

    Ramon Sessions traded to Lakers

    Cleveland sends off their backup point guard, clearly feeling that they're set at PG with Kyrie. They get back a first round pick and Luke Walton. Lakers also get little-known Christian Eyenga. Not sure what Walton's health status is, but it seems like a pretty good trade for everyone involved.

    Portland acquired another guard for Nolan to compete with, Johnny Flynn. They traded Camby to the Rockets for Flynn and a 2nd rd pick. Apparently another deal is in the works that would send G.Wallace to the Nets for Okur, Shawne Williams, and a future 1st rd pick. Maybe there is 3rd deal in the works, otherwise the Blazers look a lot smaller now.

    How does Duhon have a bigger contract than Redick? Nothing against Duhon but this just goes to show that contract amount doesn't necessarily = production. Of course you can also look at the top of the list to figure that out. I love Brand and Hill but they should be arrested for making that kind of money. Still, an impressive list regardless. Also, love seeing Lance's name on this list!

    I think this might be total earned to-date. JJ currently has a bigger contract than Duhon.

    Yeah, must be. Otherwise Elton Brand's $143.2 million-dollar contract would be all over the headlines.

    Completely disagree with you in regards to Grant

    If you look at his numbers from Detroit and what he has done for the Suns the last 4 years, Grant has been a steal. He's currently the Suns guard anybody defender; and he's shutting people done (including the top players in league that range from ones to threes). He received a nice 1-yr FA deal from the Suns this year; but he was underpaid the last 4 years based on the numbers he was putting up as well as the nice job he's been doing on the defensive end with his ability to guard multiple positions effectively.

    You're right! The government should decide how much they should make anyway. (<<End sarcasm>>)

    Haha, not exactly the government, but Hill and Boozer both got paid a relatively small sum by the USOC for their respective Olympic teams. The reported $25k for gold medals isn't huge, but the $10k given for bronze was probably too much for the 04 basketball team.

    Maggette with the Clips

    I must have missed the story on his trade. But he is now in LA and was leading scorer against Golden State the other night.

    I don't mean to doubt you, Mr. Sagegrouse, but... Corey Maggette is still a Bobcat and Blake Griffin was the leading scorer in that game.

    This darn internet has got me totally flummoxed. Corey was not in the box score last night, either as a performer or as a DNP. So, given the recent trade deadline, I searched on ESPN for Maggette links and found a reference to a a Clips-GS game -- probably from five years ago. I need to get a life.

    Well, as the good Congressmen say, I would like to revise and extend my remarks: "This post is a bump."

    I found this Battier tweet interesting and enlightening. Amazing what can be said in 140 characters or less

    Shane Battier ‏ @ShaneBattier

    I just noticed that Lance started both last night and Saturday night. Both games were losses, but that's pretty sweet...going from the D-League to a starting spot on an NBA roster in one season.

    My initial reaction was that it was kinda like the Demarcus Nelson situation, in that an unheralded, hardworking player gets some starts to fire up the other plahyers. Of course, Nelson was denied a roster spot and cut, eventually landing in Europe, whereas LT was recently guaranteed a roster spot and won't be downsized any time soon for capricious reasons. I really can't say that i think LT will be a long-term starter based on his production up to now, but what he has done is pretty impressive. K was right, go LT!
