I went to 76ers shootaround this morning at St. John's, hoping to get a minute with Marreese Speights. In case you missed the news, click here: Dionte Christmas arrested.

This morning, the 76ers waived shooting guard Dionte Christmas and forward Brandon Bowman. Bowman's dismissal was expected, but Christmas, the former Temple star, looked to -- possibly -- have a shot at making the team. Here was Christmas' line during the pre-season: 4 games played (of 7 possible)... Read more
