@ 20.47NBA0 Nazr Mohammed is considering retirement
Nazr Mohammed finished last season with the Chicago Bulls but he may not play anymore in the league. As he wrote in his own blog, the big man is considering retirement as a serious possibility. Here's what he wrote on the blog:
"So, if I’m really being honest with myself, I want to play basketball, but if I had to sign today or tomorrow, the answer would be "No!!" I look at it like this: I’m not willing to play the role that I’ll be needed for right now, which is to provide veteran leadership, a locker room presence, insurance in case someone gets hurt, etc. In a few months, if the right team that has an identity and a need for what I bring calls me, then maybe. Rosters are full and everybody is trying to figure out what type of team they want to be. I've watched training camp practices on NBA TV and I don’t have a desire to go through that right now. I don’t think I need to be on a roster – and go through pre-season – for a team that doesn’t quite need me yet, doesn’t have an identity or know what they are going to be in the future. I have an identity and I know what I bring to a team. I’d rather sit back and enjoy my family and see my kids off to school every morning than sign with a team that has so many unknowns."
"So what happens now? Well, mentally, I’m preparing and taking the proper steps in the event that playing pro ball is over for me. I have an addictive personality, as most people can tell by my training. My mind is very analytical and creative. So whatever I decide to do next, I plan on working extremely hard and being very successful at it. I guess that my hard work and drive to be great will have to be channeled and poured into my next endeavor. That’s the only way I know." Source: Nazr Mohammed

@ 17.43NBA0 James Harden: I'm the best player in the league. I know I was the MVP last season
James Harden said he is the best player in the NBA and he thinks he should have been awarded as MVP of the 2014-2015 season instead of Stephen Curry. Per NBA, “You don’t think I can do more?” Harden asks. “Just wait. I’ll show you.” […] “I am the best player in the league. I believe that,” he said. “I thought I was last year, too.” “I know I was the MVP,” Harden said. “That’s 100 percent given all the things that happened last season. Credit the Golden State Warriors for an unbelievable year. They had an unbelievable team, coaching staff, everything. But that award means most valuable to your team. We finished second in the West, which nobody thought we were going to do at the beginning of the year even when everybody was healthy. We were near the top in having the most injuries. We won our division in a division where every single team made the playoffs. There’s so many factors. I led the league in total points scored, minutes played. Like I said, I’m not taking anything away from Steph, but I felt I deserved the Most Valuable Player. That stays with me.” Source: NBA
@ 17.19NBA0 Warriors want Shaun Livingston shooting threes
The Golden State Warriors want Shaun Livingston to hit more three-pointers this season. Per Inside Bay Area, "I think he needs to retrain his mind almost," Walton said Tuesday. "Like when he sees that (he's naturally drifting into the paint), just to space out because we want him shooting threes, and I know he wants to do it. "He hasn't passed up any yet, but he hasn't gotten any yet which leads me to believe he's not hanging out around that 3-point line. Because on our 3-point line, you should get some threes with the way we move and the double-teams our guys demand." Walton smiled and says he has a bet with Livingston that the 30-year-old owes push-ups when he has an open look at a 3-pointer and doesn't shoot. "He's done the work with the repetitions and the skill," Walton said. "He can shoot them now." Source: Inside Bay Area

Sports that he has no interest in playing for any NBA team other than the Lakers). “I can’t see it. I mean I can’t see it. I really can’t,” he said. “I think just like Magic Johnson, even MJ (Michael Jordan), who went to Washington (after two years out of the game at the age of 37), but still when you think of MJ you think of the Chicago Bulls. When I think of Kobe, I don’t care what happens, I think everybody will always think of him as a Laker and one of the greatest Lakers to ever play the game.” Source: USA Today
