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 [...]

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 [...]

They are merely Fair Waiters, not great ones

Six games in and the puns have been laid on thick already when it comes to C J Fair. The ridiculous dunk last night led to a bunch of “Man, that was just unFair” and other obvious blobs of text. I thought to myself “I’m still waiting for the Waiters puns to start flying.” (For [...]

Look who’s back in action! (Pro Update 3-6-10)

This past Wednesday, Etan Thomas saw his first NBA action since December 4. The Thunder were in the midst of getting clobbered by the Nuggets (final margin was 29, but the Denver lead was above 40 points at times during the game) and Scott Brooks saw fit to give E some burn. Thomas entered with [...]

Ah the sweet taste of freedom (Pro Update 2-21-10)

Guess who’s out on work-release!

That’s right, kids, it’s our old pal Damone Brown. His felony money-laundering charge, as far as I can tell via the internet, has not gone to trial or been otherwise resolved yet, but in the meantime he’s out of jail and playing ball in his hometown. Damone signed on with the [...]

Another All 00’s Team

No, I don’t mean a team made up entirely of Rick Jacksons.

Inspired by TNIAAM’s extensive review of the decade in Syracuse football (broken down by best games, worst games, QBs, RBs, WRs) I’m pleased to present my Cuse Country SU Men’s Basketball All-Decade Teams. It’s slightly different from football because of the way basketball seasons [...]

Pro Wrapup Summer 2009

Boy, that was not fun. I guess I should have expected that, at some point in graduate school, I would be required to actually do some actual work. Had to put aside for several weeks months my fervent desire to update Josh Pace’s progress in Estonia, and spend time dissecting the nuances of Martin’s Axiom. [...]

Pro Problems

Just a quick update on two of the guys in the pro ranks (full update coming later this week). Friday night, Jason Hart was released by the Clippers. Not a shocking move, as he clearly was not in their future plans. However, there is good news. First, Jason’s contract is guaranteed at nearly $3 million [...]
