  1. NBA to release the big-ticket games Tuesday

    Jul 31, 2010, 8:57 AM EDT

    It’s one of NBA-heads’ favorite times of the year. The release of the schedule. And this year, the NBA is capitalizing on that level of interest and making it into a bit of an event. Tuesday night, August 3rd, NBATV will host a one-hour special to announce its opening night, Christmas Day, and Martin Luther…

  2. LeBron James is not exactly lying low

    Jul 25, 2010, 6:05 PM EDT

    Apparently LRMR’s idea of damage control is “If you’ve got it, flaunt it.” Examiner.com brings us the story of LeBron’s weekend in Vegas. James pulled out of Team USA’s trials in Turkey due to the stress of his business ventures and adjustment to wherever it was he was going to wind up in free agency…

  3. Tracy McGrady nearing deal with Bulls

    Jul 25, 2010, 4:16 PM EDT

    In news that would be stunningly relevant in 2003, Marc Stein of ESPN reports that the Bulls are nearing an agreement with former Raptor/Magic/Rocket/Knick and former All-Star Tracy McGrady. There’s no word on the terms of the deal, but if it’s for a dollar over league veteran minimum, someone in Chicago’s offices screwed up. McGrady…

  4. Tim Thomas looking to tag along with Mavs again

    Jul 25, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    Crazy as it sounds, Tim Thomas was actually pretty good last season, before a knee injury and family illness put him down for the count. He shot 46% from the field and 37% from three, which was a central component of what the Mavericks needed last season, especially in the playoffs versus the Spurs. But…

  5. Rajon Rondo unsurprisingly is not concerned with the Heat

    Jul 25, 2010, 11:37 AM EDT

    The defining characteristic of the Boston Celtics is their defense. Their second defining characteristic is arrogance. This isn’t a bad thing. The Celtics, like all great teams, pride themselves on being the team they consider the best. All season long they kept the same mantra: the only team that can beat them is themselves. This…

  6. Chris Bosh still developing documentary

    Jul 25, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    You’d think he would have noticed everything. The monumental backlash to “The Decision.” The massive criticism for Wade even mentioning 9/11. The plummeting Q ratings. You’d think Chris Bosh would have noticed that all the attention and self-aggrandizement the Big 3 in Miami have brought on themselves has been too much and they need to…

  7. White Team routs Blue Team in Team USA scrimmage; real question: who's playing center?

    Jul 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    I’ve never really understood watching scrimmages. I mean, I do it a lot. I’ll watch basketball pretty much at any level. But the players are just so removed from the effort level we find most enjoyable to watch. That level, if you’re wondering, is a Game 7 in the playoffs in the semifinals or higher.…

  8. New York's Isiah Thomas Redux nightmare is over

    Jul 24, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    After Donnie Walsh tapped him to make their final pitch to LeBron James (that went well), there were discussions that the Knicks were looking at Isiah Thomas to fill their GM position. Subsequently, Knicks fans began experiencing a range of symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, vertigo, and an uncontrollable urge to destroy everything in their path.…

  9. We're living in an age of great shooters

    Jul 24, 2010, 12:14 PM EDT

    It’s a lazy Saturday afternoon in the NBA offseason. Our primary choices of discussion are the latest in Chris Paul rumors (nothing of substance will develop until after his meeting with NOLA brass Monday), Shaquille O’Neal rumors (the great celebration of the marginal), and a Las Vegas team that doesn’t exist. So instead, I thought…

  10. Not a super weekend for Tyreke Evans

    Jul 24, 2010, 12:04 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans is having one of those no-good weekends. The Rookie of the Year should be having the time of his life, celebrating the first 20-5-5 rookie season since LeBron James in 2004, and being a potential leader for Team USA. Instead, not only will he not be joining the team in Turkey, but Evans…

  11. Shaquille O'Neal's latest delusion involves the Celtics

    Jul 24, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Helpful tip for NBA free-agents. If you’re looking at possible teams to join? Try looking at their roster first. If they happen to employ someone who plays your position and plays at well, for more money and is younger? They’re probably not interested. If they employ two, halve that percentage they’re into you. Shaquille O’Neal…

  12. Report: Chris Paul denies LRMR connection

    Jul 24, 2010, 8:33 AM EDT

    You remember when we finally got through “The Decision” and we were so excited because we wouldn’t have to talk about LeBron for a while? Well, Chris Paul has come in and hijacked our summer away from us. Howard Beck of the New York Times, that fancy inkrag up New York way brings us news…

  13. Chris Paul has a Magic preference

    Jul 23, 2010, 9:01 PM EDT

    After Chris Paul’s list of places he’d like to be traded to came out, the natural response was to seek out a preference of Paul, the Hornets, and King of Mardis Gras. Just as it was with LeBron, only without any sort of leverage on the part of the player, every city of fans believe…

  14. Chris Paul is simply the latest consumer of the NBA arms race that started in Boston

    Jul 23, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    In 2007, the Spurs won their fourth title inside of a decade. They defeated a LeBron James-led Cavs team that featured Sasha Pavlovic as the fifth-leading scorer on the team. The arguable second-best team was the Phoenix Suns who would immediately begin a spiral based off of the hyper-reactive initial moves of Steve Kerr. The…

  15. Stephen Jackson's home robbed, wife held at gunpoint

    Jul 22, 2010, 8:49 PM EDT

    Don’t mention the word “punk.” Don’t throw around the word “thug” like it somehow excuses this. The NBA world (and the comment section of this blog) is perpetually hammered with unfair accusations about the histories of its players. There’s simply no excuse for making light of, or justifying the terror that Stephen Jackson’s family went…

  16. Report: Hornets hire Dell Demps to man the good ship "Keep Paul"

    Jul 21, 2010, 1:45 AM EDT

    Dell Demps has a history of dealing with point guard controversies. He recently helped with the George Hill/Tony Parker situation. He knows that there’s a good part and a bad part to having two extremely talented point guards. This is a good thing, since he’ll be stepping into the exact same situation in New Orleans.…

  17. Planet LeBron is a figment of your imagination

    Jul 20, 2010, 9:52 PM EDT

    Hey, remember that house with the beachfront and the gym in the bedroom and the tennis court for the guest house that LeBron James was going to buy? Yeah, not so much. Ira Winderman (our boy) has checked with the owner of the house that he was supposedly buying and he says no-go. `There’s been…

  18. UPDATE: Dwyane Wade misquoted about 9/11

    Jul 18, 2010, 5:44 PM EDT

    UPDATE: NBA FanHouse has issued a retraction to the quote due to a transcription error. As word spread of the alleged quote, outrage was heavy. The correct quote from Wade was: “”We’re going to be wearing a bullseye. But that’s what you play for,” Wade said. “We enjoy the bullseye. Plus, there’s going to be…

  19. Miami signs James Jones, really wants to shoot threes

    Jul 18, 2010, 3:36 PM EDT

    The Miami Heat needed to fill out their roster. And they’ve certainly done so decently. Today, our own Ira Winderman clues us in that the Heat have re-signed veteran wing and three-point specialist James Jones. Jones is a three point dagger man, but after re-signing with the Heat two years ago, he’s been largely marginal.…

  20. Report: LeBron James' new house is basically a small planet

    Jul 18, 2010, 1:41 PM EDT

    A popular joke among NBA folks is that with all the angst LeBron James has created among people this summer, he’ll have to comfort himself on his gigantic bed of money. And according to Life and Style Magazine via AOL FanHouse, that bed of money will have quite a bit of room for a chair…

  21. Hornets' sale still in dispute

    Jul 17, 2010, 9:51 PM EDT

    The New Orleans Hornets need a GM in place, immediately. Chris Paul is getting antsy, the roster could use some serious upgrades if they want to contend, and new head coach Monty Williams needs to have someone to work with on acquisitions. And the process is certainly getting there, with Dell Demps emerging as the…

  22. Mike D'Antoni on Anthony Randolph's role with the new Knicks

    Jul 17, 2010, 6:40 PM EDT

    When the Knicks acquired Anthony Randolph in a sign-and-trade for David Lee, there was a lot of discussion about how he’d fit into D’Antoni’s system. Randolph has been the subject of a million discussions about the possibility of running point forward, and when he was moved to D’Antoni’s club those discussions exploded. Randolph carries with…

  23. Houston Rockets sign Brad Miller

    Jul 17, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    Houston needed some depth down low, even after re-signing Luis Scola and with Yao Ming returning. They needed a center with size to come off the bench and potentially hit from the perimeter to stretch the floor. Today they addressed that need. Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting the Rockets have signed center Brad Miller…

  24. New Hornets coach Monty Williams wants to clear the air with Chris Paul

    Jul 17, 2010, 10:48 AM EDT

    And by “clear the air” we mean “try and convince him not to demand a trade which would result in the outright horrific downfall of the franchise.” CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger reports that Hornets head coach Monty Williams plans on sitting down with point guard Chris Paul for a conversation about where the team is headed…

  25. NBA summer league: Notes on Raptors-Kings

    Jul 17, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Notes and observations on Pistons-Kings at Las Vegas summer league… DeMarcus Cousins is worn out. Cousins slugged through a bad performance today versus the Pistons, finishing 5-18. Still, he dropped 16 and 10, and actually finished with a triple-double (16,10, and 10 fouls). That’s right, DeMarcus Cousins fouled out of a Summer League game. But…
