In this edition of the Four-Point Play, I’ll look into the new NBA team in Oklahoma City. I’ll also discuss how stupid Mario Chalmers is, Ben Gordon’s possible move to Russia, and the Celtics taking yet another tour with the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
1. It was widely reported Wednesday that the new NBA team in Oklahoma City (the former Sonics) will now be called the Thunder.
2. NBA rookies Mario Chalmers and Darren Arthur, heroes during the NCAA tournament, were thrown out of the NBA’s rookie transition program after getting caught with marijuana.
3. Ben Gordon reportedly has played his last game with the Chicago Bulls, and is now considering a 1-year deal to play in Russia.
4. Leon Powe will be with the 2008 Larry O’Brien Trophy at the Natick Mall this Saturday, September 6.
