    Henry Abbott

    Phil Jackson heard Andrew Bynum talking about "trust" issues, and laughed it off saying he thought Bynum had been talking about "trusses." And he noted that his dad wore a truss. I know that word "truss" to mean some kind of structural support,...

  6. Welcome Beyond Bowie

    Henry Abbott

    The TrueHoop Network is creeping closer to its 30-team, fully operational Death Star moment. One of the more prominent holes -- it being a playoff team, the team I support, and a team with a big internet following -- has been Portland. That changes n...

  7. First Cup: Monday

    Henry Abbott

    Tom Knott of The Washington Times: "LeBron James is ascending to rarefied air as a force all his own. He is not the next Jordan or Bird or Magic Johnson. Each of those legendary figures had a celebrated support system. Jordan had Scottie Pippen,...

  8. Andrew Bynum in the Land of Spooky Coincidence

    Henry Abbott

    Andrew Bynum has memorized some dates. He has looked at some calendars. And he has noticed some oddities. Jonathan Abrams of The New York Times: On Monday, Bynum walked into the Garden using a black crutch, seemingly as more of a prop than a support...

  12. Put Your Questions to David Stern

    Henry Abbott

    He's hosting a chat at 5:30 ET from Miami, and you can submit your questions to him all day. Just to guarantee my question won't be used, I asked him some crazy thing about taxpayer support for stadiums. If he does answer my question, then I'll perso...
