    chris-mullin

    Chris Mullin is a Golden State Warriors icon. A star player, five-time All-Star and part of Run TMC, the golden years for Golden State. It was those years that helped him get elected to the Hall of Fame. He then went on to the front office and was the GM the one time this franchise…

  2. Specter of death seems to haunt Lamar Odom

    Aug 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    You think Lamar Odom lives a charmed life. Professional basketball player, complete with championship rings. Reality television star. His own line of clothing. But Lamar Odom knows tragedy. All too well. He had to bury his mom at age 12. His grandmother raised him from there but she passed in 2004. In 2006 his own…

  3. Stan Van Gundy has handles (and we don’t mean love)

    Aug 3, 2011, 3:02 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 2

    Since the Magic’s season ended at the hands of the Atlanta Hawks, we’ve said Orlando has to find another guy who can handle the rock and create some open looks for teammates. Jameer Nelson can do that, and after that… Gilbert Arenas? See what we mean. Looks like we may have found the guy —…

  4. Farmar, Ilyasova, Wright three latest to sign in Europe

    Aug 3, 2011, 2:46 PM EST

    Jordan Farmar

    David Stern is so, so concerned about how players signing overseas might impact the players union. He is such an empathetic guy. Don’t think there’s anything self-centered about his comments at all. Nope. He’s not saying that hoping to divide the union. It’s only out of genuine, heart-felt concern. But outside of D-Will, only one…

  5. Turkish team decides to take Patty Mills over Dooling

    Aug 3, 2011, 1:31 PM EST

    MILLS_PATRICK

    Reports had come out that Keyon Dooling — last seen as a guard off the bench for the Milwaukee Bucks — was going to play for Turkish team Anadolu Efes during the lockout. But it turns out, Anadolu Efes would rather have Patty Mills (last seen as a guard off the Trail Blazers bench). That’s…

  6. One zealous fan gets Kobe Bryant calf tattoo

    Aug 3, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    kobe-bryant-leg-tattoo

    We’ve got Dirk Nowitzki on an a–, a woman with Thunder thighs, a LeBron James calf tattoo, and now…. The Kobe Bryant calf tattoo. You can see the entire thing to the right (via CBSSports Eye on Basketball). My first thought — that’s actually some really impressive work. I most enjoy seeing Kobe in “The…

    Aug 3, 2011, 12:24 PM EST

    Ricky Rubio Barcelona

    Ricky Rubio is not running back to Barcelona. The powerhouse European team reportedly want him back during the NBA lockout, but Rubio doesn’t plan on going back unless the full NBA season is lost, he told mundodeportivo.com (via Hoopshype, translation from friend of the site Xavier Sanchez, a basketball coach in Spain you can follow…

  8. Video: Shaq drives tiny cars on Conan

    Aug 3, 2011, 11:41 AM EST

    Basketball star Shaquille O'Neal of the

    Retired or not, Shaquille O’Neal is one of the biggest personalities and stars the NBA has. And Shaq gives good television. I’ much rather watch him than David Stern talking lawsuits. Shaq tells good stories, like trying to just drop in at the White House unannounced and saying he wants to see President Obama (even if…

  9. Add Sam Mitchell to Timberwolves coaching search list

    Aug 3, 2011, 11:10 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Orlando Magic, Game Five

    Minnesota has time to take in finding a new coach, what with the lockout and all, so they are using it to interview virtually everyone. Enter Sam Mitchell, the former Toronto Raptors head coach, who will be the latest to interview for the Timberwolves job, according to Jerry Zgoda at the Star Tribune. It’s not…

  10. Stern not collecting his massive salary during lockout

    Aug 3, 2011, 10:41 AM EST

    NBA Commissioner Stern holds a news conference before Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Miami

    David Stern makes a lot of money. A staggering amount of money, although apparently more people know the codes in the nuclear football than how much Stern actually makes. But Stern isn’t making that much right now. He is not getting paid during the lockout, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. Stern essentially said as…

  11. Rafer Alston sued over fight at strip club

    Aug 3, 2011, 10:12 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    Rafer Alston is out of the NBA — he played last season in China — but the man still knows how to make headlines. The former NBA point guard is being sued over an alleged altercation from a year ago, according to the New York Post. The former NBA athlete, 35, who’s originally from Jamaica,…

  12. Report: Kobe to meet with Turkish club Thursday

    Aug 3, 2011, 9:55 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Bryant walks off the court after Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference semi-final basketball playoff against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas

    He’s not going. But when Kobe Bryant said the other day he had not talked to Beşiktaş officials in weeks, with his next breath he said he’d listen to offers — “I’m just waiting for my phone to ring.” Now Beşiktaş is calling and the two sides will meet Thursday, according to multiple reports out…

  13. Dennis Rodman’s jackets, furniture, awards up for auction

    Aug 3, 2011, 9:28 AM EST

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Butler v UConn

    Admit it, you wish you could dress like Dennis Rodman. Now you can — you can own a jacket or a boa he used to wear. Or his fur hat. Or his boots. Or his funky pool table can be in your house. Maybe you want to pick up his African drums. Or some of…

  14. Artest officially becomes Metta World Peace August 26

    Aug 3, 2011, 8:12 AM EST

    Ron Artest Parade

    We just want to keep you up to date on World Peace. It’s not as far away as it seems. Turns out we could have World Peace by Aug. 26. That’s when Ron Artest’s name could officially change to Metta World Peace. Don’t just take our word for it, we have the word of TMZ…

    “So, I just found out that sharks have orgies after eating whale blubber. Thats very disturbing. Well I’m having whale blubber tonite.” —Timberwolves shooting guard Martell Webster, who apparently has been watching a lot of Shark Week, via twitter. (Hat tip to I am a GM)

  16. How a day of lawsuits can help end the NBA lockout

    Aug 2, 2011, 8:57 PM EST

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    We are nowhere near the end of this lockout. Sadly. Especially sad since you could throw a group of five or so bloggers (or NBA writers, or you and your friends) in a room and we could hash out a deal in 24 hours that would pretty close to where the two sides will land…

  17. Bruce Pearl could coach Maverick’s D-League team

    Aug 2, 2011, 7:04 PM EST

    Tennessee v Michigan

    Bruce Pearl cannot commit any recruiting violations as the coach of the Texas Legends of the D-League. And the former Tennessee head coach could get that gig coaching the Mavericks’ D-League affiliate, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. The Texas Legends are making a hard push to hire former Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl to replace…

  18. Rondo says his elbow is doing well, thank you very much

    Aug 2, 2011, 6:13 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Rajon Rondo was back on a basketball court being swarmed by defenders Tuesday. It wasn’t exactly the same as the last time we saw him — this time it was the public court at Malcolm X Park in Boston and the defenders were kids who use the park, swarming around their Celtic hero. Last season…

  19. Olajuwon says Dwight Howard needs more freedom

    Aug 2, 2011, 5:16 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Free Dwight Howard! That is essentially what Hakeem Olajuwon seems to be saying. Last week, Dwight Howard was working out with the legendary big man, trying to “just shoot” and expand his offensive game. When asked this week what Olajuwon said, it was less about the broad skill set Howard has developed — he has…

  20. Watch Kobe score 81 — the NBA 2K11 version

    Aug 2, 2011, 4:37 PM EST

    bryant-81

    It was a nondescript Monday in January that turned into a night that helped define legend of Kobe Bryant. The Lakers were struggling against the woeful Toronto Raptors and Kobe decided to put the team on his back, got on a role like no other, and dropped 81 points in one game. We want you…

  21. Dwight Howard: Players can find themselves during lockout

    Aug 2, 2011, 4:14 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    We’re desperately looking for bright sides to the NBA lockout, because after today it feels like it’s going to be a long one. Dwight Howard has one — the players can use this time to really find themselves. Find themselves in the sense of who they really are as a person — that stuff you…

  22. Insurance could keep Deng, Gordon off English national team

    Aug 2, 2011, 3:49 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    England is guaranteed a spot in the London Olympics basketball tournament next summer. It’s the perks of hosting the games. (The USA is the only other nation to have already qualified, by virtue of winning the World Championships last summer.) But there is still work to do this summer. The Bulls Luol Deng has already…

  23. Get to know me: Joshua Harris (soon to be 76ers owner)

    Aug 2, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Joshua Harris

    This has been the general reaction of Sixers fans to the team being sold (the other NBA owners just need to approve it): “Good, Ed Snider only cared about hockey… wait, who is buying the team?” The answer is Joshua Harris. Which leads to the next question, who is Joshua Harris? Kate Fagan delves into…

  24. Union president calls NBA’s legal moves more bad faith negotiating

    Aug 2, 2011, 2:09 PM EST

    Billy Hunter

    You knew it wouldn’t take long, and here it is: NBA players union Billy Hunter has responded to the NBA today filing a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board and a lawsuit against the union, saying that it is the union negotiating in bad faith. “The litigation tactics of the NBA today are just…

  25. Nick Young is part of the fashionable crowd

    Aug 2, 2011, 1:35 PM EST

    Nick Young fashion

    Suddenly it seems the NBA is a very fashion conscious league. You have Amar’e Stoudemire getting his own fashion Web site. Dwyane Wade is having a documentary made about his fashion choices. But that’s not enough to suit Nick Young, who wants to be the face of NBA fashion. Young will be featured in a…
