Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT.

Steve Kerr absolutely rips Dan Gilbert. And he’s right.

Andre Iguodala is impressing at Sixers camp.

Shawn Kemp award contestant: DeSagana Diop said that he is 25 lbs overweight.

The Lakers and Knicks lead the league with the highest ticket prices. As to be expected. The Miami Heat are third, the Bulls are fourth.

Eddy Curry has yet to practice with the Heat or talk to the media in Miami. I know, we’re all shocked.

There has been very little talk about Arron Afflalo, a player a lot of GMs covet who is a restricted free agent. The Nuggets are making progress toward re-signing him.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute will remain with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Knicks may add Mo Evans, who spent most of his summer in New York anyway as a member of the union’s bargaining team.

Drew Gooden is saying he still has pain in his foot, not good for a player who has battled plantar fasciitis for a while now. All that rest and here we are.

Interesting thoughts about Gerald Green joining the Lakers.

Marco Belinelli signed a qualifying offer to remain in New Orleans. David Stern did not block the move, which means it is good for “basketball reasons.”

The Warriors inked their prized rookie, Klay Thompson.

Gary Forbes reportedly has a three year deal with the Raptors (the third year is a team option).

The Bobcats, Raptors, Trail Blazers and Rockets all would like to land the PBT personal favorite Reggie Williams.

Shelden Williams signed on to be a New Jersey Net.

Lazar Hayward has goes from the Timberwolves to the Thunder. Nice upgrade.

Boris Diaw — all 6’8” of him — is going to spend some time at the center spot for the Bobcats.

Ben Wallace got probation on his DUI and gun charges.

Under Armour and the the NBA now have a deal. This means Under Armour can use NBA logos and jersys in their advertising.

Watch Blake Griffin hit a half court shot. Sitting down.

Don’t worry, rookie hazing is alive and well in the NBA.

    Do the Sixers have the pieces to pull off a Howard and Paul deal? I see The names involved and surely holiday, turner, iguadola, Thad young and picks would have to be considered? Delusional?

    are the bulls still in the nba ?are they even awake

  3. bparmalee - Dec 14, 2011 at 12:35 PM

    Actually they might be able to put a deal together… the problem is the Sixers would just be renting them. They are not on either players list of teams they want to sign long term with. I think Young, Holliday and Speights.. plus picks wouldnt be a bad offer but what do you when they walk in off season? That’s why more teams are not making offers.

  4. kvanhorn87 - Dec 14, 2011 at 12:58 PM

    My thought is if you get both then you get added to the list they will sign long term with. Of course they would need to have that convo with each before pulling off the trades.

    Eddy Curry was on Dan Lebatard’s radio show on Monday. You can listen to it online.

  6. cantonbound13 - Dec 14, 2011 at 1:27 PM

    It would be more shocking if you reported Eddie Curry missed a meal instead of practice.

  7. kpow55 - Dec 14, 2011 at 1:33 PM

    I often thought of Steve Kerr as the Matt Millen of the NBA, taking a team on the brink and destroying it but he really nails it in this article, good for him. Horrible management skills but great analysis, back where he belongs.

    Some fans may even come back around to the Lebron band wagon as they realize the wouldn’t want to work for Dan Gilbert either.

  8. charlutes - Dec 14, 2011 at 1:42 PM

    I miss the lockout.

  9. ljl2 - Dec 14, 2011 at 2:02 PM

    If Gilbert only objected due to being upset about LeBron leaving…What was the excuse for all the other owner’s objecting? Kerr is just upset he couldn’t cut it as a GM.
