NBA on the web

Can I listen to NBA basketball games on internet streaming audio? Specifically the Portland Trailblazers, but other might feel differently. Their radio station is 95.5 The Game but when I clicked during a game the other day, there was a talk show on.

Double agent

There was a player in the NBA who played in the same game for both teams, I think due to the final minutes needing to be replayed on a different date and a trade happening in the meantime. I can't think of the name of the player or teams, and my Google-fu doesn't seem up to the task. Can anybody help?

Help me find a video of Shaq destroying a NBA backboard in 1993.

In 1993, during his rookie season in the NBA, Shaquille O'Neil's weight and strength managed to break and pull down two NBA backboards. The first on national television (NBC if I remember correctly...) on February 7th in Phoenix delaying the game for a half hour. The second time on April 23rd in New Jersey. The best video I can find online for either is an animated GIF from here. My Google-Fu has failed helping me find anything better than that. I ask of you MeFi users, please help.
