The wandering Canadian (Pro Update January 2013)

As I sat around last night watching Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks go up against the Kris Joseph-free Celtics, I realized it’s time for another Pro Update. Here’s what’s been going on:
NBA
As mentioned above, Kris Joseph was cut by the Celtics earlier this month. In fact, he was cut just a few hours before his [...]

All your development are belong to SU (Pro Update Dec 2012)

It’s back! Your one-stop to learn all there is to know about former SU basketball players who are currently playing professionally somewhere or other. It’s been a long time since I’ve had the flexibility to put one of these together, so it’s a bit longer than usual. Plenty of content to peruse while you wait [...]

Pro Update - Kiwi Edition (Feb 2012)

Josh Pace is back in the land of sheep and hobbits!
Pace has signed on with the Manawatu Jets for the 2012 New Zealand basketball season. After leading the Hawkes Bay Hawks (seriously) to a runner-up finish in last season’s championship, Josh will join former Duke center Nick Horvath on the Jets this year. They brought [...]

Regarding the silvery benches

This morning I read this article in the NY Times about how the student section at Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium is almost never full these days. The school has been selling the excess capacity to non-students, so the games are still sold out. But the article (which is well worth your time) notes that they [...]

Pro Update December 2011

With the NBA season about to (finally) tip off, it’s time to revive our long-running-but-recently-deficient series of posts covering the professional basketball lives of former Orangemen. You probaby have heard the recent news about Andy Rautins being cut by the Mavs or Paul Harris wrecking the D-League on the stellar TNIAAM, but here we are [...]

Who on this Syracuse team would you want on your side in a knife fight?

When it comes to Syracuse basketball, I’m typically a creature of brazen overconfidence. Every preseason I get that “this could be the year” feeling that only blossoms as we mow through mid-major opponents and preseason tournaments in November and December. Then, over the course of every season, they provide the full dramatic range of hope, [...]

Due to the vagaries of the Chinese higher education semester schedules, I’ve been on holiday for the last three weeks, mostly backpacking around Vietnam.  This left Josh to fly solo on CuseCountry — not a daunting task for him considering what a bunch of slackers us other contributors have become — but it also blessed [...]

Whither Matt Gorman?? (Pro Update 1-7-11)

Sad but true. Matt “Matty-boy” Gorman is no longer playing professional basketball, at least not at the moment. He was not re-signed by the Sheffield Sharks for 2010-11, and there is no record of him playing for, or even signing with, another team. Yet.
But, who from Syracuse is still playing pro hoops, whether in this [...]

the emerging “Unfinished Business” meme

Kinda hott. I’m buying what they’re selling.
This makes two years in a row of right-on-the-money motto-making. There’s no way they can keep this up year after year, but Unfinished Business fired me up instantly, especially when I heard Arinze was involved. It encapsulates everything that I’ve been feeling all off-season and everything I’m feeling [...]

And then there were none

Demetris Nichols got cut today by the Utah Jazz. Utah decided to go with the minimum roster size required by NBA rules, which is 13 players. Three other guys were cut in addition to Nichols; 2nd-round draft pick Jeremy Evans made the team. I guess Utah is in such financial straits that it makes more [...]
