- The 10-man rotation, starring the Spurs, ‘a working example [...] of how the world should be’ (Ball Don't Lie) June 18, 2013A look around the league and the Web that covers it. It's also important to note that the rotation order and starting nods aren't always listed in order of importance. That's for you, dear reader, to figure out. C : ESPN.com . I'm a bit late to the party here, but this Kevin Arnovitz feature on the San Antonio Spurs — how the NBA couldn't figure out how to sell them, how the organization couldn't care less, and how the franchise's commitment to innovation, culture and process make them "the NBA's research and development division" — is the best thing I've ever read about the Spurs. And considering we could be 48 minutes away from them being crowned champions, now seems like a good time to get familiar with how they got here (and keep getting here). PF : USA TODAY Sports . A nice read from Sam Amick on how Danny Green went from "the guy for whom a D-League owner didn't want to give up Patrick Ewing Jr." to the cusp of a potential NBA Finals MVP nod . SF : The Onion .

- Allen Iverson denies ever abducting his children, who have since been returned to their mom (Ball Don't Lie) June 18, 2013One day after reporting that Allen Iverson's ex-wife had filed court documents accusing him of refusing to return their five children following a planned vacation, TMZ now reports that the children were returned to their mother after a court hearing last week in which the former Philadelphia 76ers, Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies guard denied ever "abducting" them in the first place. In her filings, Tawanna Iverson claimed that Allen Iverson requested and received permission to take the children, who range from 3 years old to 16 year sold, on a trip to Charlotte, N.C., from May 22 through 26, but didn't return the kids on the 26th; Tawanna suspected they never actually went to Charlotte, but rather stayed with her ex-husband in an Atlanta hotel. A subsequent return scheduled for June 4 was scuttled when Allen Iverson didn't show up at the agreed-upon Target, according to Tawanna Iverson. We knew Allen Iverson had countered by filing documents denying his ex-wife's charges; now, via TMZ , we know he offered a denial in person in court last week, as well: Allen appeared in Fulton County court in Georgia last Wednesday and told the judge his ex-wife had full access to their kids during their stay at the hotel ... and therefore he wasn't doing anything wrong. We're told Tawanna also testified that she could have picked up the children from Allen but didn't want to drive 45 minutes to his location. After A.I.'s testimony, the judge decided the former Philadelphia 76ers star didn't deserve to be thrown in jail — despite his ex-wife's request before the hearing. The kids [...] were returned to their mother following the hearing. The site also reports that Allen and Tawanna Iverson have "worked out some of their issues" and that Tawanna, who received sole legal custody of the children in the couple's divorce settlement, has begun to allow Allen to spend more time with the children. He was apparently doing just that on Monday, when he spoke with Jeff Hullinger of Atlanta's WXIA-TV as he and his children (who are deliberately not shown in the video below) walked to his car in the parking lot of the Sheraton Suites Galleria in Atlanta:
- Connelly new boss at Nuggets (Reuters) June 18, 2013(Reuters) - The Denver Nuggets named Tim Connelly as their new general manager on Monday after Masai Ujiri joined the Toronto Raptors last month. The first task for 36-year-old Connelly, who spent the last three years as the assistant general manager in New Orleans, will be finding a new head coach to replace George Karl, who was sacked at the end of the season. "We have a lot to do," Connelly told reporters. "The draft (is approaching), then we'll hit free agency. "I'm hoping collectively as a staff we can keep this progressing to where we all want to be. ...
- Andre Iguodala and the Top 10 Small Forwards in Free Agency June 18, 2013Andre Iguodala and the Top 10 Small Forwards in Free Agency By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… 1. Andre Iguodala- Denver Nuggets (Early Termination Option) Iggy is easily the best wing player in this year’s free agency, if he opts out of his $16.2 million contract for next season that is. Iguodala is still just 29 years old and he is one of the best perimeter defenders in the NBA. On offense, he may never be the all around star that many believed he would become, but he still possesses great hands and court vision to make incredible passes, is excellent at getting to the basket and is an improved shooter. Once he opts out of his deal, there will be many suitors for the former All Star, but Denver was and is a perfect fit for his talents. Prediction: Stays in Denver. 2. Martell Webster- Washington Wizards (UFA) Webster was the surprise of the season for Washington last season. After struggling in Minnesota to be more than just a streaky shooter, Webster finally got his g...

- Nuggets’ decision was stupid and disrespectful – George Karl June 15, 2013via Denver Post George Karl is not happy. Most people share his sentiment, and his reasoning. George Karl coached his Denver Nuggets, a team without a known superstar, to finish third in the cutthroat Western Conference. It’s better than teams with Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Marc Gasol, James Harden and even Stephen Curry. Playoff success (or lack of it) was one reason for Karl’s ouster. That spans the last few years, not just this one. But how much better can you actually do? The Western Conference is really that tough..teams like the Knicks, who got Denver’s star Carmelo Anthony, would probably struggle to make the playoffs. Speaking of Melo, I believe Karl handled that train wreck of a situation with a lot of class. Kudos to the Nuggets’ GM for getting the best possible haul in that situation. Oh, wait, that Nuggets’ GM former Exec of the Year Masai Ujiri, is also gone. per Denver Post: Upon being fired last week, Nuggets coach George Karl to...
