"NBA live scores each and everyday"
This is the site where you'll obtain information on scores of topics on the subject of the NBA (National Basketball Association) together with the following:
Dallas Mavericks granted a five-year, $20 million contract to coach Avery Johnson locking up one of the NBA's most successful young coaches in Dallas until 2011.
Johnson has coached only one full and one partial season in the NBA since last year. But during this short span of time, the Mavericks reached the NBA Finals for the first time, only losing to the Miami Heat in six games. Indeed Johnson managed to lead Dallas to a 60-22 record last season after coaching the final 18 games in 2005 when Don Nelson decided to step down.
The newly signed contract will make Johnson the latest recruit of the Mavericks to be locked into a long-term deal by owner Mark Cuban during the off-season. Indeed before him, Dirk Nowitzki also signed an extension that also will keep him in Dallas through 2011.Read more
The NBA is working hard these past several years to gain a presence around the world. Soon it will be more than just the world watching the NBA in America. Get used to NBA Europe.
I think it is great that the NBA is looking to expand outside of North America. The word from the NBA is that an actual division of the NBA League will be housed in several European Cities. I am curious to see how the logistics will be worked out.
I would assume there would be an additional one or two divisions, that would compete during the regular NBA season, as part of the actual NBA. Say teams in Spain, France, England, Germany, maybe even further East. These teams would play one another, and maybe travel for extended road trips to the States, while the American teams would visit Europe once or twice a year so the European teams could have home games.Read more
The Memphis Grizzlies team was established in 1995 in Vancouver, British Columbia along with the Toronto Raptors as part of the NBA's expansion to Canada. It was relocated to Memphis in 2001. Nickname Grizzlies was chosen after the original name Mounties was abandoned following objections by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the name was kept upon moving to Memphis.
The team logo is a snarling Grizzly's face in two shades of blue with yellow eyes. One of its stars is Spanish Paul Gasol who was originally drafted by the Atlanta hawks in 2001 but was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies where he played 7 seasons and won the Rookie of the Year award in his first season with the Grizzlies. He now plays for the Lakers.
The team colors are dark blue, powder blue and yellow. The Grizzlies sport a jersey in white for home games and blue for road games, both with light blue linings on the side.Read more
