Plenty more to come later, but this will get you started:
Tim Thomas can't take any sh*! from Dirk Nowitzki: "I've never seen Dirk trying to talk so much. Where I'm from, if I got punked by him, I'd never be able to go back. That was definitely not going to happen.
Adrian Griffin (as quoted by Randy Galloway): "I played with another guy named Dirk Nowitzki in 2003, but this guy here, I'm getting to know him and I really like him."
The Bucks will have a new look. In the new Sports Illustrated, they were voted one of the teams players would least like to play for, so that's probably not a bad idea. (You have no idea how proud I am that the Blazers didn't make that list.)
These people worship at the church of pickup basketball. I do too. Like Eric Neel, I played pickup on my wedding day, short-armed all the shots, and went 0-8 or so. Thanks Ben for the link.
