Wednesday Bullets

By Maurice Brooks

  • The Iranian Olympic Team is making a trip to Utah.

  • Examining the pastime that is pickup basketball.

  • It looks like it is time for a lot of free agents to come up with a plan B.

  • Maybe James Posey felt uncomfortable at an event to promote Boston's new championship DVD because he knew he was New Orleans-bound.

  • Mayo and Love have both been very successful at summer league so far. Should we be surprised?

  • Like all of the other players out here in Las Vegas, the Sixers' trio of Marreese Speights, Jason Smith and Thaddeus Young are learning on the fly.

  • I was wondering why Portland's Petteri Koponen seemed so confident on the court. The pressure of an NBA game is nothing compared to what he has already been through.

  • The Hornets have championship dreams. If they are going to achieve their goal, expect a big contribution from Julian Wright.
