Radmanović's Lakers contract banned him from taking part in activities that involve significant risk of injury, including skiing and snowboarding. An NBA league source said that voiding the contract would be extremely unlikely, with a suspension or fine more likely. This proved to be true, as he was fined $500,000"
    Now that you mention it I remember reading about it at the time and thinking

    Well at least Vladi didn't pull a Sonny Bono because both injuries were snow activity related.

    A NBA player is not going to improve his game very much if at all by playing in these summer leagues. However, they do risk incurring a major injury.

    There are a lot better and safer basketball related activities available for a NBA player to develop his game during the summer than by playing in scrimmages and games at places like the HAX in Los Angeles.
    I love how people think they know more about "developing his game" than someone drafted in the first round... whose father was also an NBA player.

    Ed hasn't played a lot of basketball, so I can definitely see him wanting to play a bit of scrimmage ball to work on getting into game shape. People who actually play basketball can tell you that running on a treadmill just doesn't cut it.

    Plus, in pick up games, defense is usually pretty terrible. A great place to practice your help D.

    They obviously can play basketball however they like - other non-basketball related activities that are agreed upon in the CBA like skydiving, motorcycling (or mopeding lol), flying planes, racing any kind of motorized vehicles, maybe horseback riding, and/or extreme sports are forbidden in the contract and would need team permission to do (although players often do it anyway). Players get better by working on their moves during the summer in various gyms around the country (usually alongside some nba-level talent). You don't get (or stay) NBA good without playing thousands of hours of basketball every year.

    Obviously everyone is overreacting to this - what's the chance that he dunked on some random and came down on them wrong or was injured in any way by an amatuer making some horrible mistake completely causing him to go knee-on-knee or something... It's MUCH more likely he sprained his knee etc on an awkward counter-post move or studder-step etc....

    I mean there are a bunch of ill informed posters up in here when it comes to the Raptors and/or basketball- no wonder BC is getting over on Raptor fans(fanatics) with a wink and a smile.

    Players have been gathering for pre training camp scrimmages since Gus Williams was a Sonic. Usually the players who live out of town start showing up in said
