Lucas: Green Means Winning

Danny Green doesn't even let you fully complete the sentence before he starts shaking his head. The point being made to him is this: in the history of University of North Carolina basketball, only three players own an NCAA championship ring an NBA championship ring. Those players are Michael Jordan, James Worthy...and Danny Green. (

Darrick Woods: Roy Williams' Game Day Security Blanket

During the day, Darrick Woods is a nurse manager on the emergency services transitions unit. But since 1993, his off-hours have led him to the Smith Center, where he serves on the security detail for North Carolina basketball. Beginning with Dean Smith, Woods has served as security for four Tar Heels coaches, including two Hall-of-Famers. (

Kennedy Meeks among 5 sophomores primed to break out

Kennedy Meeks is a promising low-post prospect with good hands and elite offensive rebounding ability, so he'll get touches on the blocks and create points by attacking the glass. Meeks' conditioning should be improved after dropping from 320-plus pounds as an incoming freshman to 270 this offseason, allowing him to play more minutes in one of the country's faster-paced offenses.

The Transformation of Kennedy Meeks

Still two months out from the official start of basketball season (Late Night with Roy is on October 3rd), talk is already swirling around the transformed body of sophomore center Kennedy Meeks and what it means for the UNC basketball team. A trimmer Meeks will allow the already impactful Charlotte big man to have even a bigger role in 2014-2015. (Carolina Blue)

5. Roy Williams, North Carolina; Record at North Carolina: 306-89 (.775); NCAA Tournament: 63-22, seven Final Fours, two championships; Why he’s ranked here: The career achievements may demand a higher ranking, but schools like Virginia and Miami have been closer to Carolina territory than Carolina during the last two seasons.

Ty Lawson Trolls James Harden, Cowboys In Awesome Instagram Post (Photo)

The NFL kicked off its first major slate of games Sunday, so we’re guessing Houston Rockets guard James Harden wasn’t expecting to hear his name mentioned. It appears, however, that some jokes are just too good to pass up. And boy, was this a good one. (NESN)

Lucas: Chapel Hill Continues Danny Green Love Affair

Nothing in the past five years prepared Danny Green for what happened at Kenan Stadium on Saturday. When Green was told he'd be honored at the end of the first quarter, he thought he might wave at the crowd, soak in a couple of cheers, and go back to his seat, where he was enjoying hanging out with former teammates Deon Thompson, Bobby Frasor and Marc Campbell. That's not what happened. (

New position should benefit Isaiah Hicks

There is no need to wonder if the pundits got it wrong on Isaiah Hicks. He could very well be the Tar Heels’ most improved player this season and start having the impact many envisioned he would out of high school. The biggest difference for Hicks, arguably even more important than having a year of experience, is his move back to his natural position. (

Michael Jordan surprises Derek Jeter at retirement party

People who know Derek Jeter were asked how they thought the Yankees' captain would feel on the day of his retirement ceremony. It turns out there was someone at Yankee Stadium yesterday who is one of only a few people on the planet who can understand what Jeter is going through. That person is three-time NBA retiree Michael Jordan, a surprise guest at Sunday's retirement party. (Newsday)

Former Laker Rick Fox hunting for Knicks job in future

New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher and his former Lakers teammate, Rick Fox, showed up at the U.S. Open on Sunday to watch Serena Williams win the women’s title. While Fox plans on returning to NBATV this season in an analyst role, he said he still has ‘interest’’ in one day joining the Knicks in some capacity. Fox spoke over the weekend with Knicks president Phil Jackson. (New York Post)

Ghosts of NCAA Dunk Past: Danny Green for North Carolina (video)

Before the Spurs picked him off the NBA scrap heap and turned him into one of the most prolific NBA Finals shooters of all-time, it seemed that Danny Green would be largely remembered for two things: dancing to Jump Around before UNC games, and giving the entirety of the college basketball world outside Durham what they wanted so badly and dunking all over Greg Paulus.

Harrison Barnes Among NBA’s Most Underrated Small Forwards

Although he has yet to reach his full potential, Harrison Barnes remains one of the league’s better young small forward prospects. Barnes can be an above-average defender at the position when focused. Consistency remains his issue, but perhaps a more defined role in Warriors coach Steve Kerr’s system could help this season. (Basketball Insiders)

S.I. lists Justin Jackson among college basketball's best freshmen

While fellow freshman wing Theo Pinson excels on the defensive end, Justin Jackson’s biggest contributions should come on offense. With point guard Marcus Paige likely drawing most opponents’ attention, Jackson provides an essential complementary scorer. He can score inside and out and boasts an especially refined mid-range game. (Sports Illustrated)

Warriors sign James Michael McAdoo

Former Tar Heel James Michael McAdoo has signed with the Golden State Warriors, according to Marc Spears. The deal is for one-year and the amount hasn’t been disclosed yet. McAdoo initially signed on to Golden State’s practice squad where he played this summer. Now the Warriors have officially made him part of the team as he will join former teammate Harrison Barnes.
