    Aug 9, 2011, 7:29 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    Dwyane Wade, in the middle of the prime of his career, does not want to sit out for a full NBA season. In fact, he said he wouldn’t. With fears abounding the entire season might be wiped out Wade told the Associated Press he will not sit out a full season. “I’m going to play…

  2. NBA prospect arrested for allegedly beating girlfriend

    Aug 9, 2011, 6:22 PM EST

    NCAA Illinois Basketball

    You may not know who Jereme Richmond is, but now you will for the wrong reasons. He is one of those guys who just missed having his named called in the NBA Draft. The 6’7” swingman out of Illinois tried to go pro after his freshman year, but that season was inconsistent and scouts were…

  3. Video: Kevin Durant with the sweet reverse dunk

    Aug 9, 2011, 4:59 PM EST

    NBA basketball player Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City Thunder is greeted by fans as he arrives at a commercial event in Guangzhou

    Kevin Durant has been putting on a show this summer. Call it him having fun, call it a grass-roots marketing campaign, call it dedication to his craft, it doesn’t matter. What matters is it is working, he is creating a buzz. He decided to take the show to Baltimore and get in a little run…

  4. EuroLeague wants to keep best young players in Europe. Shocker.

    Aug 9, 2011, 4:21 PM EST

    Ricky Rubio Barcelona

    In a stunning development, the head of the EuroLeague would like to find a way to keep that continent’s best players over there and out of the NBA for as long as possible. Shocking a league executive would be guided by blatant self-interest. That would never happen here in America. EuroLeague CEO Jordi Bertomeu spoke…

    chris-mullin

    Larry Bird and Chris Mullin were two of the greatest pure shooters the game has ever seen. Bird is in the Hall of Fame, Mullin gets inducted Friday. They were also both on the original Dream Team for the USA in the 1992 Olympics. This was Mullin at his peak and Larry Bird well past…

  6. Europe’s best teams still hesitant to sign NBA stars

    Aug 9, 2011, 3:07 PM EST

    Deron-Williams

    We keep hearing rumors that there is going to be a flood of NBA players signing overseas soon — including some All-Star level players. If it happens — and that’s a big if — they still will not be signing with the best teams in Europe. They will be signing with the also-rans of the…

  7. Chris Bosh’s back tattoo is… interesting. And large.

    Aug 9, 2011, 2:27 PM EST

    chris_boshs_giant_tattoo-1

    More pictures of Chris Bosh getting more ink on his back have surfaced (thank you very much The Basketball Jones and Lost in the Wilderness) and.. we still don’t really get it. Not why he’d get a business tattoo (meaning his jersey covers it) but what it is supposed to mean. To be clear, there…

    Ron Artest Jets jersey

  9. Kevin Garnett kept Marquis Daniels calm through incident

    Aug 9, 2011, 1:15 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    It was the scariest moment of the last season. Marquis Daniels caught the ball about 10-feet out on the right wing, faced up on Gilbert Arenas and tried a little step through move. Daniel’s head hit Arenas’ arm. And Daniels just collapsed to the floor, face down unable to move. It was instantly clear something…

  10. Barnes gets one-game suspension from Pro-Am League

    Aug 9, 2011, 12:33 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    Well done Matt Barnes. Not sure I’ve ever seen a guy get suspended for a game from a pro-am league before. Then again, I’ve never seen a player punch an opposing player in a pro-am game before. Well, Barnes said it was more pushing than punch later, but still. Barnes did it and he has…

  11. Suns or wherever, Pietrus just wants to play next season

    Aug 9, 2011, 12:18 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    To listen to the agent for Mickael Pietrus is to think the player is not that attached to the Phoenix Suns. “He’s good with being back in Phoenix or fine to be traded,” (agent Bill) McCandless said. “He just wants to play.” That’s what he told Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. Pietrus picked up…

  12. Dennis Rodman promises no antics at hall enshrinement

    Aug 9, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    Dennis Rodman talks during the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Announcement of the Class of 2011 in Houston

    Dennis Rodman once said he would strip naked on a basketball court. And that didn’t strike us as the most outrageous thing we could picture him doing during a game. So you can imagine that the rather stodgy folks at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame had some concerns about the induction ceremony Friday.…

  13. Terrance Williams throws down dunk, then disrobes

    terrence-williams-300x200

    We bring you this video for two reasons. About 30 percent is for the dunk by the Rockets’ Terrance Williams and is thrown down over last season Lakers bench warmer Derrick Caracter. It’s impressive. But 70 percent of the reason is the celebration. Watching this video at home Steve Javie jumped up and called a…

  14. Andre Iguodala not optimistic about next season. Not at all.

    Aug 9, 2011, 10:33 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    LeBron James is optimistic about the chances of there being a next season. Andre Iguodala is the ying to that yang. The Sixers forward spoke with CSNPhilly.com and sounded a more realistic tone. “I didn’t think it would be this bad,” Iguodala said, playing in an outing for Stars Within Reach, a foundation that encourages…

  15. Report: Chinese team offers Nowitzki $1.5 million a month

    Aug 9, 2011, 9:58 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    It’s been expected that if Dirk Nowitzki decides to play overseas during the lockout, he would return to his native Germany. Bayern Munich reportedly has had interest as would plenty of teams. But could he turn down $1.5 million per month? That is what the Zhejiang Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association are reportedly offering…

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dwight Howard has done it the last two summers. Kobe Bryant has done it. Now it is LeBron James’ turn. LeBron has made the pilgrimage to Houston to work out with Hakeem Olajuwon, he told the Associated Press. “I look at what he was able to do throughout his career,” James said. “Unbelievable talent. Multiple…

  17. New Hawks owner says they are going to win rings

    Aug 9, 2011, 8:18 AM EST

    Alex Meruelo

    There is few things more useless than a press conference where the new owner of an NBA team cannot talk about the transaction of buying the team (because it has not been finalized by the NBA’s board of Governors) nor can he talk about the players (because there is a lockout). This made the usually…

  18. Video: Brandon Jennings goes off his defender’s head

    Aug 8, 2011, 9:28 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 7

    I used to think the pass between your opponent’s legs was about the most embarrassing thing that could happen to a guy. Well, that or being in Blake Griffin‘s way on a fast break. But Brandon Jennings has upped the ante. This video is from Dyckman Park in New York, where pro/am games run in…

    Aug 8, 2011, 6:58 PM EST

    LeBron James

    LeBron James says is not going to play in Turkey. Or Spain. But he is planning a trip to London. In Akron for a “Wheels for Education” charity kickoff, LeBron told the Associated Press he is not looking to play  overseas because he is so “optimistic” there will be an upcoming season. Not sure who…

    L.A. Live — the place across the street from Staples Center where a lot of bars and restaurants took a financial hit when the Lakers got knocked out early in the playoffs — was home to a Nike 3-on-3 tournament last weekend. Of course there was a dunk contest — and it was a good…

  22. Howard would like Orlando fans to cheer like it’s 2009

    Aug 8, 2011, 3:56 PM EST

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Come on Orlando Magic ticket holders — when they start pumping in the “every-body-clap-your-hands” noise at the Amway Center, Dwight Howard wants you feel it. Really feel it. On twitter yesterday a Magic fan made a complaint to Howard that fans in 29 other arenas make — the fans close to floor are just there…

  23. Stoudemire organizing some informal Knicks practices

    Aug 8, 2011, 3:10 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire

    Don’t worry, they won’t go over defense. But you can add the Knicks to the list of teams where the players are thinking of working out together this off-season. And you can thank Amar’e Stoudemire for that, according to Hoopsworld’s Alex Kennedy. Amare Stoudemire is planning offseason workouts for the New York Knicks. The team…

    I am going to watch as much of this as I have the Lamar Odom/Khloe Kardashian reality show. But because we know some of you out there can’t wait to see another reality show about another NBA star, we bring you the official trailer from “LaLa’s Full Court Life.” This was actually filmed through the…

  25. If full NBA season is lost, Memphis could have to pay

    Aug 8, 2011, 2:07 PM EST

    fedexforum_external

    There are some NBA owners out there willing to scrap the entire upcoming NBA season because they would lose less money that way than they would paying players for a season. But losing a full season is not good for all the owners. You can add Memphis to that list. Not because it’s a profitable…
