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

    Aug 2, 2011, 7:04 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 2, 2011, 6:13 PM EDT

    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…

  3. Olajuwon says Dwight Howard needs more freedom

    Aug 2, 2011, 5:16 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 2, 2011, 4:37 PM EDT

    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…

  5. Dwight Howard: Players can find themselves during lockout

    Aug 2, 2011, 4:14 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 2, 2011, 3:49 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 2, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 2, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    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…

  9. Nick Young is part of the fashionable crowd

    Aug 2, 2011, 1:35 PM EDT

    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…

  10. Jordan Farmar in talks to play in Israel for Maccabi Haifa

    Aug 2, 2011, 1:08 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    Looks like the Nets may have both of their point guards playing overseas during the lockout. Deron Williams will be playing in Istanbul, and now his backup Jordan Farmar is in serious talks to play for Maccabi Haifa in Israel, reports Mark Stein at ESPN. Farmar has one more year left on his deal with…

  11. Joakim Noah set to return to French national team

    Aug 2, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    It’s not a real EuroBasket without Joakim Noah. Okay, it’s going on with or without him. Two spots in the London 2012 Olympics will be decided whether or not he plays. But the chances of the French landing one of those two spots (or one of the play-in spots in next summer’s pre-Olympic tournament) goes…

  12. Woodson to meet with Knicks for lead assistant position

    Aug 2, 2011, 11:34 AM EDT

    IL: Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls

    Would you rather be the head coach in Minnesota or the lead assistant and defensive coordinator in New York City? Mike Woodson isn’t faced with that choice. Yet. But the former Atlanta Hawks coach is in the running for both jobs. He interviewed in Minnesota before and might be a front-runner there (nobody seems to…

  13. NBA files lawsuit, labor claim against players union

    Aug 2, 2011, 10:46 AM EDT

    NHL Season Cancelled

    Now it is on. This morning the NBA lockout got a lot more ugly and a lot longer. Tuesday morning the NBA owners took a pre-emptive strike against the players union decertifying — the path the NFL union took and one the NBA union was considering — by filing both a complaint against the union…

  14. Rudy Fernandez talking to Real Madrid. Again.

    Aug 2, 2011, 10:21 AM EDT

    0920-rudy-fernandez-300

    Much to the disappointment of drunk women sitting courtside everywhere, Rudy Fernandez is thinking about jumping to Spain. Again. Fernandez, who spent last summer trying to get out of his NBA deal, spent part of this summer negotiating with Real Madrid. Then he said he promised to fulfill his NBA contract, which has one season…

  15. Video: Kevin Durant puts on show at Rucker Park

    Aug 2, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

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

    Kevin Durant dropped in at the streetball Mecca that is Rucker Park Monday night. And it was a show. He dropped in 66 points. He had some highlights. The crowd loved him. He rained three pointers over double teams like they were layups. Sure, the game got a little sloppy — it’s streetball — but…

  16. Kobe finally talks about Mike Brown, and all is right with the world

    Aug 2, 2011, 8:13 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Silence can speak volumes. When Kobe Bryant refused to talk about the hiring of Mike Brown, it had less to do with the hire than how it went down. First, Kobe was on record as a Brian Shaw backer. Second, he wasn’t even consulted or told about the hire — a consideration top stars all…

  17. Really, this is a controversy? LeBron in an Akron T-shirt?

    Aug 1, 2011, 10:13 PM EDT

    lebron akron shirt

    The photo of LeBron James at the right (the full length version is below) is basically a Rorschach test about what you think of LeBron. Here are the facts: LeBron tweeted this photo of himself with two young children who did something very sweet — they raised money at a lemonade stand in Akron and…

  18. Charles Barkley has advice for Tiger Woods, too

    Aug 1, 2011, 8:47 PM EDT

    Robert Guerrero v Orlando Salido

    Michael Jordan had advice for Tiger Woods as the world’s most famous golfer gets back on the course this weekend for the first time in three months. That makes sense — few people can relate to dominating a sport or being an international star as Tiger did, Michael Jordan is one of those people. Charles…

  19. Stern pessimistic, rips players after negotiating session

    Aug 1, 2011, 7:47 PM EDT

    National Basketball Association commissioner David Stern answers questions from members of the media regarding failed contract negotiations between the NBA and the players association in New York

    Anyone out there still feeling optimistic about a full NBA season? Even part of one? Moments after players union president Derek Fisher was diplomatic in saying Monday’s first high level meeting between the owners and players in a month was not productive, David Stern spoke and made Edgar Allen Poe sound like Mary Poppins. Of course,…

  20. Jeff Green wants to be a little more like Kobe/LeBron/Pierce

    Aug 1, 2011, 6:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green is a frustrating player. Great athleticism, there are moments of great play and big shots. Moments you think he can be special. But there is also terrible inconsistency and issues on defense. The bottom line is in five-man units at both Oklahoma City and Boston, they did better when he was on the…
