@ 09.47NBA0 Omri Casspi hopes to stick around with the Kings
After finding his way back to where he always believed he belonged, Omri Casspi hopes to stick around with the Kings for a while. Along with the rest of his teammates, he supported Gay by attending last week’s press conference to announce his extension. Might there be something similar in Casspi’s future? “I love it here!” Casspi said, with a laugh. “Obviously it’s still early, so I’m trying not to think about that sort of stuff right now. I’m just trying to think of how I can help my team win next basketball game". Source: Dimemag

@ 15.58NBA0 Steve Clifford: Stephenson is not a star. He's a guy that has talent to become a star
Hornets head coach Steve Clifford benched Lance Stephenson for the whole fourth quarter in the loss to the Blazers. After the game Clifford spoke about the former Indiana Pacers player. Per ESPN, "To be fair, one of the things that's made it more difficult for him is that he came here and people proclaimed him as the next superstar," Clifford said Wednesday. "He's not a star. He's a guy that has talent to become a star. To be a star in this league, you have to do it over years." Stephenson was short on answers when asked afterward about his diminished role late in games. "It's Coach's decision," Stephenson said.
Pressed further about his status, Stephenson said he's no longer dealing with some of the nagging injuries that slowed him in training camp and entering the season.
"I'm not hurt. I'm healthy," said Stephenson, who has seen his playing time reduced over each of the past five games. "There are no more excuses. Hey, it's Coach's decision if he doesn't want to play me in the fourth [quarter]. I'm just going to continue to work hard and do what it takes to win games." Source: ESPN
@ 14.11NBA0 Thunder's Westbrook and Durant back Friday?
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook may return to the lineup for Friday’s game against the Knicks. Per the Oklahoman, There is a growing belief that one or both could rejoin the lineup soon, perhaps as early as Friday against New York. They returned to practice this week and are scheduled to have their respective injuries evaluated over the Thanksgiving holiday. The Thunder’s decision to waive Telfair as opposed to apply for a third 10-day stint on Smith serves as confirmation that the team is confident that either Durant, Westbrook or rookie forward Mitch McGary will be available at some point over the next three games. Had the Thunder applied for and been granted a third consecutive 10-day stint on Smith under the league’s hardship rules, Durant and Westbrook would have been ineligible to play until those 10 days passed.

@ 00.17NBA0 Isaiah Thomas: The key word is it's a tough situation. For all of us
Isaiah Thomas moved from the Kings to the Suns during the summer. The point guard is coming off the bench as sixth man in Hornacek’s rotation but his role in Phoenix is not what he expected. Per CBSSports, “As long as I'm in the game, I'm happy,” Thomas said. “That's the biggest thing. I know everybody wants to play. I feel like I can help this team in a big way.” With the Kings, he was shuffled in and out of the starting lineup, especially in his first two seasons. He watched Tyreke Evans, Aaron Brooks, Greivis Vasquez and Jimmer Fredetteplay the point in front of him. Thomas has learned that he can't worry about the things he can't control. Still, this is challenging. Thomas has proven he's capable of producing like an All-Star, and so have Dragic and Bledsoe. “It's a tough situation,” Thomas said. “But you've just got to be ready for whatever circumstances coach puts you in. You gotta be ready when your name is called, but I'm not going to sugarcoat it. It's tough. “It's not what I expected,” Thomas continued. “But coach has a tough job. Putting all of us on the floor and trying to mix up the minutes, it's tough for him. So it's not just tough for us as players, we just gotta be ready when our name's called and just know, I mean, coach is trying to do what he thinks is best for the team to put us in a position to win. But the key word is it's a tough situation. For all of us.” Source: CBS Sports

@ 14.33NCAA0 Pierfrancesco Oliva committed to Saint Joseph's
Italian young forward Pierfrancesco Oliva, a 6-foot-8 forward from Bergen Catholic (N.J.), has verbally committed to Saint Joseph's of coach Martelli.
Per Cityofbasketballlove.com, Oliva (who prefers “Cecco” to “Pierfrancesco”) made his decision on Sunday (11/23) after visiting for the Hawks’ win over Vermont on Saturday, ultimately choosing Saint Joe’s over Elon. “I just talked to the staff, I really like Coach Martelli. I think that’s the right fit for me,” he said. “Like two weeks ago I narrowed the list down to Saint Joseph’s and Elon. I think the biggest thing was the difference in the basketball program, the bigger conference. I had some other Atlantic 10 schools, but I wasn’t really intrigued by them.” A native of Florence, Italy, Oliva is a typical Euro forward in that his perimeter game is much more advanced than his toughness and post abilities. His touch and passing skills give him the ability to work from the high post as well as the perimeter. Growing up playing it Italy, college basketball was not always in the cards for Oliva. After living in the United States, however, he has already gotten an understanding of what he is in for over the course of the next four years. “I didn’t really know what college basketball was. I’ve always had a dream of playing at the highest level as a pro here, but I didn’t really know that in between, it was college,” he said. “Since I got here, really since I was like 15 years old, some schools were recruiting me while I was in Italy, so I started getting how big of a deal it was. Now it’s a dream. “Right now I’m just so excited and happy, I thought it was the right school for me.”
@ 13.29NBA0 Van Gundy tells Pistons' owner Tom Gores team won't improve overnight
Stan Van Gundy, after a chunk of games that has his team at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, paying an early deposit with the 76ers for a good seat at next May’s draft lottery, has begun to realize that balance is probably more delicate than his dual titles as coach and president of basketball operations. “I don’t think it’s gonna be overnight,” Van Gundy said. “I’d like it to be. (Pistons owner) Tom (Gores) would like it to be, but I don’t think it’s gonna be an overnight thing.” “Last night it was an hour and a half, just talking about our roster and where we’re headed and the whole thing. What I feel good about, what I don’t like. It was two days of texts.” “We talk once a week or so. Last night for a long time,” Van Gundy said. “I think that we’re very much aware of what his thinking is and feeling and he is of mine and we’re on the same page. I don’t think somebody in my position can have much closer communication with an owner than I do. I can’t imagine that.” Source: Detroit News

I play for the love of it. I’m not going to think about contracts or any of that. If that [max] contract is what it is, then it is what it is. But it’s not going to change who I am. Money never will.

Lauren Hill's Indiana high school retired her jersey number this weekend in honor of her inspirational fight to continue playing despite having brain cancer.

When you start the game off slow and let guys get their confidence, then all of a sudden, they’re throwing in shots that they probably wouldn’t make if you play from the beginning. You know, it’s another reminder that we’re not good enough to coast against anybody.” Source: ESPN
