Bobby Frasor: From real estate to his real love

Commercial real estate can’t compare to a courtside seat. That’s the conclusion Bobby Frasor arrived at when he chose to pursue the vacant head-coaching position at his high school alma mater. One year away from basketball was all the Brother Rice graduate needed to reaffirm his love for the sport and opt for a career shift. And the Rice administration helped solidify his decision.

Video: Justin Jackson blows by defender in summer workouts

UNC sophomore small forward Justin Jackson is working out in his hometown of Houston in preparation for the 2015-2016 season. Along with weight lifting and training workouts, Jackson is continuing to develop is on the court skills and moves. In a video posted by coach and trainer John Lucas, Jackson is shown blowing a defender with a quick move before dunking it with one hand.

Roy Williams weighs in on unresolved NCAA investigation

UNC Head Basketball Coach Roy Williams was back in his childhood stomping ground Wednesday night in Asheville as he was inducted into the Western North Carolina Hall of Fame. The event was a celebration of his and others accomplishments, but the unresolved NCAA investigation remains a talking point. "Just tell us what the allegations are," said Williams.

Harrison Barnes: Bay Area Bellweather

Over the past year, no jump-shooter in the NBA has improved as much as Harrison Barnes. Out of 136 players who attempted at least 300 jump shots both last season and this season, no player exhibited a bigger uptick in field goal percentage: from 32.8 percent to 40.3. Barnes may not be a Splash Brother, but his jumper has gone from bad to good in a very short time.

Video: UNC Basketball Players Prank Teammates with Fake Snake in Locker Room

Some North Carolina basketball players recently pranked a couple of their teammates with a fake snake. The gags started off slowly, but once the targets fell for the trick, their reactions were priceless. Marcus Paige, who will be a senior next season, provided the best reaction. When the Tar Heels star noticed the snake on the floor below his locker, he jumped out of his seat and scurried away.

Georgia and UNC in 'early stages' of lining up basketball games

After his first season at Georgia, Mark Fox talked about wanting to line up games against North Carolina and Roy Williams. It hasn’t happened yet, but the Georgia men’s basketball coach said he spoke to his Tar Heels counterpart on the recruiting circuit recently in Lexington, Kent., about getting their teams together. “He’s willing to consider it,” Fox said. “We’re in the early stages.”

Justin Jackson's Summer: Weight Room

Justin Jackson is working with a local strength coach this summer, focusing on specific weight room goals targeted to help him take the next step as a sophomore at UNC. The Jackson family’s expressed goal was for Jackson to put on up to 10 pounds of muscle during the summer. He’s already made strides to that end. “Just last week, we were doing the bench press and he went through it pretty quickly.”

2014-2015 Exit Interviews: Reggie Bullock

Clearly talented, even more clearly raw, Reggie Bullock's Clipper career rarely got off the bench. Doc Rivers entrusted his first LA draft pick with just 658 minutes across 68 games and something around a season-and-a-half before shipping him to Phoenix in the three-team deal that brought Austin Rivers to town. His lack of development and playing time represent a chicken-or-the-egg dilemma.

Video: David Letterman Interviews 23-Year-Old Michael Jordan in 1986

Wednesday night marked David Letterman’s final time hosting the Late Show, so it’s only right that we look back at an interview with one of the biggest stars to ever grace his stage: a 23-year-old Michael Jordan. The pair touched on everything from MJ's early years with the Chicago Bulls to his sneakers and sponsors. This interview took place in 1986.

Video: Harrison Barnes has 14 in Warriors win

Former UNC star Harrison Barnes scored 14 points on 6 for 12 shooting (2-6 from three) Wednesday night to help the Golden State Warriors defeat the Houston Rockets 110-106 and go up 1-0 in the Western Conference Finals. Barnes, who played 33 minutes, also had one assist, one rebound, and two steals.

Q&A with UNC coach Roy Williams

Roy Williams on the UNC academic scandal and NCAA investigation: "It would help if the NCAA would just tell us what the allegations are. That would help because it would give us the information. It's been a hard process, and I know that has been quite a lot of negative recruiting going on and other things that don't make you very happy. "But at the same time, we made some mistakes at our university."

Video: Rasheed Wallace still pulling off 360's at age 40

For some reason, we’ve seen this video making the rounds lately and we don’t exactly know why. It’s been around since last October, but apparently folks have been in the mood for some 40-year-old Rasheed Wallace dunks.

Video: The Backup Plan with Harrison Barnes

You can't play in the NBA forever. What Golden State Warriors small forward Harrison Barnes has now is a job, but what he needs is a career.

J.P. Tokoto Workout Video

An interview with North Carolina's J.P. Tokoto featuring footage from his pre-draft workouts at IMG Academy and in Chicago.

Ex-NBA PG Chauncey Billups: SMU’s Larry Brown is the best coach I’ve ever played for

Former Detroit Pistons guard Chauncey Billups was asked about the subject on ESPN’s SportsCenter and admitted he did something similar during his playing days under NBA Hall of Famer and now SMU head coach Larry Brown. “I did it several times,” Billups said. “Like I said, it wasn’t a slight to the coach. It’s just something I had seen. I did it with Larry Brown, who is a Hall of Fame coach… sometimes a coach doesn’t see what you can possibly see out there.”
