  1. Team USA takes care of Lithuania… eventually

    Aug 21, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    That was almost very very bad. Team USA played disastrously bad against Lithuania for a half, trailing by multiple scores before turning the jets on in the second half and riding their athleticism to a 77-61 win Sunday afternoon. The big problem for Team USA? You can take your pick, but shooting is likely the…

  2. Is Chauncey Billups' future tied to Carmelo Anthony?

    Aug 21, 2010, 3:46 PM EDT

    As the Carmelo Anthony saga continues on, with no real conclusion likely for months (the odds of a brand new GM draining the top talent on the team less than two weeks on the job is slim), an interesting side question has begun to develop. If Anthony doesn’t sign the extension to stay in Denver,…

  3. Amar'e Stoudemire has officially gone Big Apple

    Aug 21, 2010, 1:02 PM EDT

    Amar’e Stoudemire fits in New York. His personality, his confidence in his game, his global awareness, his style, the whole package, it just vibes with New York City and he provides them with the kind of star they’ve been looking for the past decade. In July, he put his name on the dotted line. Today…

  4. Matt Bonner will not be joining Canada for the World Championships

    Aug 21, 2010, 10:29 AM EDT

    Canada’s just not ready for Matt Bonner. Bonner, who married a Canadian woman in 2008, had applied for expedited Canadian citizenship in order to be ready to compete in the World Championships for the Canadian team this summer. But via FanHouse, we learn from the Globe and Mail that Bonner has been denied accelerated Candian…

  5. Team USA vs. Lithuania: 5 Things to Watch

    Aug 21, 2010, 9:19 AM EDT

    Team USA continues its exhibition schedule against international competition in advance of the FIBA World Championship today with a game against Lithuania. It’s an opportunity for USA to test their progress against a better team than the China squad they faced last weekend. Lithuania’s team may be made up primarily of second-tier players (like Team…

  6. Udonis Haslem started the Heat party a bit early

    Aug 16, 2010, 9:12 AM EDT

    UPDATE Aug. 16, 9:12 am: Here comes the defense, and to be blunt (pardon the pun) it’s a pretty familiar… It wasn’t his, it was the passengers, he didn’t even know it was there. You know, all the stuff you told your parents as a teenager when they thought they smelled chronic in the car…

  7. Joel Przybilla aims to be back for opening night

    Aug 8, 2010, 3:34 PM EDT

    Joel Przybilla was part of the horrific wave of injuries the Blazers faced last year. After he broke his patella, the same injury that felled Greg Oden, he slipped in the shower and re-injured it. Most thought he would be out until at least the beginning of the new year. But in an interview with…

  8. Jeff Van Gundy says the Heat will break Bulls' record of 72 wins

    Aug 8, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    Oh, good. This should go over well. Jeff Van Gundy, in an interview with the Miami Herald, thinks the Heat will break the ’96 Bulls’ record of 72 wins, and will challenge the ’72 Lakers’ record for consecutive wins of 33. No, seriously. He went out and said what a lot of people are thinking:…

  9. There's a logjam in Atlanta and something's got to give

    Aug 8, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    Al Horford is often talked about as undersized at center. He’s 6-10, but built like a power-forward, with long arms, great athleticism, and not so wide of a base like so many 5’s. The Hawks have made a ton of noise about adding a legit center this offseason, or at least aiming for some depth…

  10. Report: Donnie Walsh nearly walked out after Thomas hiring

    Aug 8, 2010, 8:36 AM EDT

    Isiah Thomas is a polarizing figure in sports management. Some people think he’s the worst manager in the history of the NBA, while others think he’s the worst manager in the history of all sports, ever, in the history of the universe. And from a report this morning, Donnie Walsh is similarly wrapped up in…

  11. Tracy McGrady may have signed with the Pistons…or…not

    Aug 7, 2010, 9:36 PM EDT

    Allright, so we talked earlier about how Tracy McGrady didn’t have any options and was out in the cold. No luck. No go. Iverson’d. Okay, so maybe not. Draft Express, at the NC Pro-Am today, is reporting via Twitter that McGrady has signed with the Pistons for a one-year deal. Hurray! Tracy’s journey is finally…

  12. In case you were curious, here's next year's No. 1 overall pick

    Aug 7, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    Most highly scouted. Most highly recruited. Most highly ranked. Most hyped. Harrison Barnes is widely considered next year’s No.1 overall pick in the NBA draft. The 6-8, 210 lb. freshman out of UNC announced his college of choice via Skype at a press conference last year and continues to be the most watched name among…

  13. The one thing Isiah Thomas was good at, he wasn't really good at

    Aug 7, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    With Isiah Thomas back in the Knickerbocker fold, his legacy is being re-examined. And as is natural, there’s a counter-movement to the sweeping flood of “What in God’s name are the Knicks thinking?” cries. There are those saying that Isiah’s terrible run with the Knicks is overstated by the media and exaggerated when discussed in…

  14. Ben Gordon out for Worlds

    Aug 7, 2010, 12:13 PM EDT

    Ben Gordon was determined to play for Great Britain in this summer’s Eurobasket qualifier. He had committed, even after surgery. It’s something Gordon had wanted to do for years, but never had the real chance to because of mitigating circumstances. This year, however, he was on track. Yeah, not so much. The Detroit Free Press…

  15. LeBron not only shows up for Akron event, but doesn't get booed into oblivion

    Aug 7, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    In the aftermath of “The Decision,” a few Cleveland fans emerged from the rubble. Stumbling, mumbling to themselves, they asked a question, “Wait, LeBron’s got charity events in Akron in a few weeks. Is he even going to be able to show his face there?” The question, apparently, is a resounding yes. LeBron’s King for…

  16. What can we really expect from Shaq this year?

    Aug 1, 2010, 5:41 PM EDT

    Shaquille O’Neal is still looking for a team. August has arrived, and the FMD (Former Most Dominant) is unemployed. It seems reasonable that Shaq would be towards the end of the free agent acquisitions. He’s in the awkward cross-section of expensive and old, both of which are in the short list of words that make…

  17. Zydrunas Ilgauskas pens letter thanking Cleveland

    Aug 1, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland fans aren’t dealing with the loss of one favorite son. They’re dealing with two. Zydrunas Ilgauskas, a Cavalier for 14 years, headed to Miami with LeBron James to try and win a championship with his friend. James’ betrayal was “king” in Cleveland. Get it? “King?” As in, LeBron James, “King James?” It’s a pun,…

  18. Michael Jordan moving closer to Bobcats ops

    Aug 1, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    There’s nothing about being the owner of a sports team that means you have to be in the same city as your team. In fact, a vast majority of owners do not make their home near the team’s operations. And if you do, it’s still no guarantee that you’ll be successful, far from it. In…

  19. Tyreke Evans had a need. A need for highly illegal speed (with no regard for passing lanes).

    Aug 1, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

    It always looks worse on video than it does on paper. Tyreke Evans got tagged in May for driving 120 miles-an-hour in a non-120-miles-an-hour zone.  He was briefly arrested then released. Last week he plead guilty to reckless driving and was sentenced to probation. A slap on the wrist really. So the story went away……

  20. The new Portland GM doesn't seem like the hesitant type

    Jul 31, 2010, 9:32 PM EDT

    New Portland GM Rich Cho is settling in nicely. He’s got himself a plan, a philosophy, and even a restaurant with the kinds of options he wants! And you can learn all about it from Jason Quick of the Oregonian! Quick has your quintessential “Get to know your new GM who replaces your favorite GM…

  21. Ryan Anderson isn't messing around this summer

    Jul 31, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson was considered a throw-in in the Vince Carter deal for the Magic last summer. A promising power forward with some range that would make a nice end-of-the bench guy. But those in the know recognized that Anderson wasn’t only tall with promising rebounding numbers (19% rebounding rate- percentage of all available rebounds obtained),…

  22. All of a sudden, Dwight Howard is the voice of reason

    Jul 31, 2010, 2:25 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard has never been accused of being the coolest cucumber in the refrigerator. He’s generally considered a silly young buck. But in a recent interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, he showed a tremendous amount of perspective regarding how teams build themselves for the playoffs, and the treacherous nature of building…

  23. The Thunder are literally leaking talent

    Jul 31, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Kyle Weaver’s not a bad young guard. He’s not going to set the world on fire or anything, but he’s also not going to be pulling in millions. He’s a prospect that struggled with injury last year, but shot 46% his rookie season. And the Thunder have no room for him. The Thunder released Weaver…

  24. Yi Jianlian injured in overseas competition

    Jul 31, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    There’s an international tournament going on in Liuzhou City in China, the Stankovic cup, featuring several international teams in a tune-up before the FIBA championships in Turkey. China faced Slovenia, and Goran Dragic had 15 points and 10 rebounds in a win. This is not relevant. What is relevant is that apparently Yi Jianlian was…

  25. Derrick Rose is not broken up over missing out on T-Mac

    Jul 31, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose had been very high on the idea of signing Tracy McGrady earlier this week, back when that seemed like a good idea. You can’t blame Rose. It seems like a good idea to a lot of people at a particular moment in time. This particular moment in time is actually “before you’ve seen…
