Stephen Jackson says he’ll play Friday. OF course, he said that a couple days ago and it turned out that he didn’t play. But this time he really means it.

Philadelphia’s offense is a thing of beauty.

Danilo Gallinari may not be the best defender ever.

Watch Devin Harris travel.

Kevin Love was a dominant Little League player, too.
