It’s the season of giving and we’ve got the gift of basketball. Ben Osborne gives us his thoughts on the Nets’ struggles and this year’s rookie class. Then, we head to the edge of sports with Dave Zirin and find out about the NBA’s response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook. Finally, ESPN/ABC announcer and member of the National Champion ’83 NC-State Wolfpack, Terry Gannon, muses on taking out Clippers coach, Vinny Del Negro, on his recruiting visit to NC-State and gives Dwight Howard free-throw shooting advice.
