  2. Arroyo a better option for Heat

    Henry Abbott

    By John Hollinger Here's what I don't get about Miami's zest to acquire Rafer Alston: Carlos Arroyo has been better. Way better. With a 12.13 PER and a tepid 11.1 points per 40 minutes, Arroyo wasn't exactly on the cusp of stardom, but he'd done a...

  6. Stan Van Gundy's Star Search

    Henry Abbott

    An early theme of these Finals has been bad Magic guard play. The needs are many -- Rafer Alston's shooting, J.J. Redick's finishing, Jameer Nelson's timing and Courtney Lee's aggression -- could all use improvement. All have looked s...

  7. The TrueHoop Network Shootaround

    Henry Abbott

    What happened to the Magic's patented pick-and-roll? Their effective transition game? The sharpshooting from beyond the arc? Is it the Lakers' defensive pressure or has Orlando's inside-out offense gone off the rails? Kurt Helin of...

    Henry Abbott

    Posted by Kevin Arnovitz The Cavs and Magic each came into the series with a full playbook of good offensive material that worked all season -- which is why they're playing basketball in late May. The difference came down to which team better exe...

  11. The TrueHoop Network Shootaround

    Henry Abbott

    LeBron and Kobe might be the two best players in the conference finals, but it's the teams with the deeper 2-through-8s that are making the strongest statements. Would the Suns do the unthinkable and deal the face of their franchise? And how will...

  13. When Orlando Has it Going

    Henry Abbott

    Posted by Kevin Arnovitz Think about all the things you'd want offensively if you were constructing an NBA team from scratch. You'd start with a dominant big man who's unguardable if he catches the ball within seven feet of the basket. ...

  14. The TrueHoop Network Shootaround

    Henry Abbott
