It is the most desired and lacking skill in the NBA - the ability to shoot from the perimeter. One of the worst-shooting teams is the New Jersey Nets, who shot 37 percent in the NBA Finals against San Antonio. The Nets took a player many labeled the best shooter in the draft in 6-foot-7 Kyle Korver of Creighton with the 51st pick in the second round and then traded his rights to the 76ers for an undisclosed amount of cash. Nets general manager Rod Thorn issued a statement in response to questions about Korver and why a team that can't shoot would trade the best shooter in the draft to an Atlantic Division rival.

Just because his father is Waylon Jennings and his mother is Jessi Colter doesn't mean you should call Shooter Jennings an outlaw. The genre-jumping musician, loping vocalist, and provocative lyricist is barely even country, what with his leaps into dystopian hard rock ( Black Ribbons ), sleek arena blues ( Electric Rodeo ), and smoked-hammy Euro disco (the recently released Countach (For Giorgio) , a tribute to Giorgio Moroder). Still, he knows that you're out there, digging on his EP of George Jones covers, Don't Wait Up (For George)

When violence strikes, as it does with almost numbing regularity, calls for the first two often are quickly followed by the third, as network executives scan their lineups for fictional shows that might remind viewers uncomfortably of the all-too-real dramas playing out on the news. USA's new drama Shooter on Monday had its premiere postponed to the fall in response to the fatal attacks on police in Baton Rouge, La., becoming the latest show considered a little too evocative of current events.

LAS VEGAS - Perhaps the legs just weren't there. Maybe the excitement of the game 24 hours earlier, in a surprisingly packed arena filled mostly with Lakers' fans, had drained some energy. Whatever it was, the team that took the floor for the 76ers on Sunday in their second summer-league game at the Thomas & Mack Center looked about as flat as the desert in which they were playing. The offense was mostly dribble, dribble, dribble and dribble some more before a bad shot was taken or a turnover was produced.
