McLemore taking over in Sacramento

Benton Smith

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/dec/09/265702/ Former NBA All-Star point guard Kevin Johnson might be [the mayor of Sacramento][1], but at the rate Ben McLemore is going, the Kings rookie guard could run for election in California's capital city and knock KJ out of office. The reigning Western Conference Rookie of the Month kept adding ...

Kirk Hinrich gets Heated

Nick Gerik

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/dec/06/265560/ Kirk Hinrich’s been called many things during his 11-year NBA career. Point guard. Shooting guard. Rookie. Veteran. Bull. Hawk. Wizard. Bull, again. Defender. Marksman. Glue Guy. Floor General. Troublemaker. http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/dec/06/265561/ Oh, don’t give us that look, Kirk. Hinrich may not be a brawler, but lest we forget, the Chicago ...

All hail the king (of West rookies)

Benton Smith

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/dec/04/265462/ Six teams passed on rookie Ben McLemore in the 2013 NBA Draft, but the 20-year-old rookie from Kansas is proving he can play at the next level just 16 games into his first season.

The X-files: Los Angeles

Benton Smith

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/dec/02/265371/ As long as Kobe Bryant is out for the Los Angeles Lakers and they're missing other key pieces, Xavier Henry will have the stage to prove he belongs in the NBA. Some nights he looks like a great piece for a team hoping to contend in the West, and ...

Tyshawn Taylor, a hit in Brooklyn

Nick Gerik

Eight seconds left, down by two points, no timeouts and Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd needed someone to execute a clutch play. Enter former KU guard Tyshawn Taylor. http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/nov/29/265242/ The Nets have had to rely on Taylor in recent weeks with starting point guard Deron Williams sidelined by an ankle ...

Taylor takes it old school

Benton Smith

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/nov/27/265158/ Tyshawn Taylor might be onto something. If he wasn't wearing that black Brooklyn Nets uniform, you would almost swear this highlight came from his days in Lawrence. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZECnzgduH0 That is some vintage Taylor. Attacking the rim like he did at Kansas. I don't recall seeing Taylor drive the lane ...

Cornucopia of 'Hawks throw-downs

Benton Smith

It really wouldn't be the 'Hawks in the NBA without some ridiculous highlights, would it? There was a Thanksgiving feast of dunks from Kansas products damaging rims around the Association this past weekend. Before we dig in to the main course, the always reliable Morris twins provide some appetizing fix'ins ...

A Morris Brothers Mystery: The Case of the Disappearing Sun

Nick Gerik

*Move over, Hardy Boys. There’s a new set of sibling sleuths on the trail. From Philly to Phoenix by way of the Phog, these twins are out for the truth. And their biggest case yet is… THEMSELVES.* (cue dramatic music) When we last left our heroes… http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/nov/22/264929/ Marcus and Markieff, ...

McLemore takes flight in Sacramento

Benton Smith

It might be time to re-name this blog Toma-'Hawks (or something cooler and more clever). Just about every time we post a new blog, there is another Kansas product throwing down a ludicrous dunk. The latest offering comes courtesy of Sacramento Kings rookie Ben McLemore. http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/nov/20/264870/ I'll be honest, when ...

Tyshawn Taylor sighting — and not in the D-League

Benton Smith

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/nov/18/264791/ Earlier this month, Brooklyn Nets second-year guard Tyshawn Taylor heard from team management the letter-and-word combo no player in the NBA wants said to him: D-League. As in, [that's where Taylor was headed][1]. But his stay with the Springfield Armor only lasted a few days, and by Saturday night ...
