Top 5 UNC big men in the Roy era: No. 2

The second half of Sean May's junior season was one of the more impressive runs for a player in UNC history. The 6-foot-9 center from Indiana put the Tar Heels on his back on the way to a 33-4 record and the 2005 NCAA National Championship. May averaged 17.5 points and 10.7 rebounds his junior year. He put up 26 point and 25 rebounds against Duke in the regular season finale. (Carolina Blue)

Nuggets president Josh Kroenke details team’s troubled relationship with Ty Lawson

Denver Nuggets president Josh Kroenke provided some interesting insight into the team’s troubled relationship with Ty Lawson, but emphasized the organization is rooting for the point guard to succeed. Lawson was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol on July 14, and the Nuggets traded him five days later. He is currently attending a 30-day rehabilitation program. (Yahoo!

Gregg Popovich, Danny Green, And The Phone Call That Saved A Career

In March, 2011 Danny Green was at a crossroads. After winning an NCAA Championship at North Carolina, Green was chosen in the 2nd round (46th overall) by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2009 NBA Draft. He was cut after appearing in just 20 games his rookie season. He was signed by the San Antonio Spurs and cut six days later. He was signed by the Spurs again, and cut again, seemingly relegating him to a meager future in the D-league or a life of obscurity playing overseas. (BBall Breakdown)

Top 5 UNC big men in the Roy era: No. 3

No. 3 - Tyler Zeller: Zeller played at North Carolina for four seasons from 2008-2012. In his freshman the Indiana center played little due to an early season injury. He came back in time for the 2009 NCAA title run, but was not a impactful contributor. Because of his low production as a rookie, his career college stats are skewed. (Carolina Blue)

Hornets bringing ex-Tar Heels star Tyler Hansbrough back to Carolina

The Charlotte Hornets have agreed to a contract with free-agent power forward Tyler Hansbrough, a person familiar with the situation said Tuesday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the move hasn't been announced. Hansbrough played college basketball at North Carolina. The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Hansbrough is a six-year NBA veteran. (Associated Press)

How Michael Jordan Earns and Spends His Money

Michael Jordan makes $100 million dollars annually in Nike royalties alone. Jordan's purchase of the Charlotte Bobcats — now the Hornets — for $275 million dollars in 2010, is now reportedly worth $750 million. So with all that cash, what is Jordan copping? Well, how about a $12.8 million dollar Florida mansion or a private jet painted in the colors of his alma mater, the University of North Carolina. (

Top 5 UNC big men in the Roy era: No. 4

John Henson left UNC as one of the best shot blockers in school history. A 6-foot-11 forward with an even longer wingspan, Henson struggled playing out of position his freshman season (5.7 points, 4.4 rebound, 48.6% field goal), but came into his own as a sophomore and junior. Henson scored well around the basket through put-backs, dunks, and opportune chances. (Carolina Blue)

5 Things to Know: Ty Lawson traded to Houston Rockets

With Ty Lawson traded to the Houston Rockets Sunday night, there's a lot to consider. It's a big move for both franchises. Houston didn't give up anything essential, but they did cash in most of their trade chips on this move. Denver loses one of its best players over the past four seasons at his lowest value following his most recent DUI arrest. (CBS Sports)

Isaiah Hicks On The Offensive

During a pickup game at the Smith Center recently, Isaiah Hicks knocked down an open 15-foot jump shot. Luck, some of his teammates probably thought. The odds were high he wouldn’t hit another. A few plays later, from a similar spot, Hicks took his time, squared up and knocked down his second in a row – swish. What happened next wasn’t a seminal moment. (Inside Carolina)

Top 5 UNC big men in the Roy era: No. 5

A four-year player whose recruiting class experienced the most highs (2005 National Championship) and lows (8-20 season in 2001-2002) of any UNC players, Jawad Williams was a solid performer who did the little things while scoring from the inside and outside. Williams averaged 13.1 points per game his senior season while shooting 54.1% from the field and 38.1% from three. (Carolina Blue)

Sources: Nuggets trade guard Ty Lawson to Rockets

The Denver Nuggets have reached agreement to trade guard Ty Lawson to the Houston Rockets, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Houston will send Kostas Papanikolaou, Pablo Prigioni, Joey Dorsey, Nick Johnson and a protected 2016 first-round draft pick to Denver, sources said. Along with Lawson, the Nuggets will send a 2017 second-round pick to Houston. (Yahoo! Sports)

Vince Carter literally freezing body for preservation

There's only one way to keep Vince Carter's body in the condition needed to play professional basketball these days: freezing him from shoulder-to-toe. Vince, you think you might need to crank this sucker down a few Kelvin and just stay chilled until next April? I jest, of course, because I love Vince Carter. But it's pretty funny that medical technology now allows players to cryo-freeze their bodies to help with recovery. (Grizzly Bear Blues)
