Bruin Bites: Rose Bowl Relying on Mora, Afflalo's Magic Profile, Women's Volleyball Picked to Win Conference

Bruins Nation wraps up the work week with the end-of-the week Friday afternoon Bruin Bites round-up of the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse.

The L.A. in Arron Afflalo's Game

AK: What drew you to UCLA? Afflalo: I just wanted to stay home. At the time, UCLA was going through a transition period from [Steve] Lavin to Coach [Ben] Howland. They were kind of in some rough times, so just the idea of coming back in and restoring some of that rich tradition that UCLA had. Being one of the main reasons UCLA got back to prominence after being down a few years, it was really fun for me. To do it right here in my backyard was really cool.

AA's Lockout Perspective

"In all honesty, and it's hard to do, but it takes responsibility on both parties. Obviously, I'm a player and I can only take responsibility from the players' standpoint, but it just takes responsibility from both parties and understanding of that. Until you have a complete understanding that it's not worth it, that sometimes winning a fight will result in a loss. You have to know that. And if you get caught up in the moment and you don't recognize that, regardless of whether you win your battle or not, player or owner, you're gonna do damage. "You have to ask yourself, is that damage worth it. Is that damage worth that win?" A refreshing respite from the constant blame game that the NBA negotiations have become.

#1 NBA Wing Free Agent in 2011: Arron Afflalo

According to SI.com, Afflalo should be the top free agent target for NBA teams wishing to add a wing. He earns special mention for his "two-way" abilities, making it clear that exceptional defense is still a valued commodity in the NBA, despite stale jokes to the contrary.

Topsu

Since we're all getting in the basketball mood, just thought I'd put together the top performers for three "random" games over the past couple of days. I think there's a pattern here.

Afflalo is talk of the Nuggets

Arron Afflalo starts his 4th NBA season tonight for the Denver Nuggets. Already praised for his work ethic and shut down defense, AA is expected to provide a bigger scoring punch for the Nuggets this year. Bruin fans know he'll do it, too.

Melo and AAA bring playoff intensity to scrimmages

I really like hearing this... No doubt Melo is bringing his A game to bump his trade value. AAA is a warrior, I think he's going to be beastly this year... And Shelden Williams (Called it a few weeks ago BTW)

Our boy is growing up... AA now sports facial hair, perhaps in an attempt to reverse his team's fortunes against the Jazz. At least on this night, it worked, as the Nuggets staved off elimination in Game 5, 116-102. AA played only 20 minutes in the contest, but made his mark, going a perfect 5 for 5 with two of those being 3's for 12 points Copyright 2010 NBAE (Photo by Garrett W. Ellwood/NBAE via Getty Images)
