    Long live oddly polarizing facial hair! You wear that neckbeard with pride tonight, loyal reader, and come check out the three best individual performances from Wednesday’s great slate of games.

    Nov 1, 2012, 1:45 AM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    It came down to the last minute, but a deal got done just before the deadline. We’ll let you be the judge who got the better of it. Taj Gibson and the Bulls agreed to a contract extension worth up to $38 million over four years. Reports say it’ll be difficult for Gibson to reach…

  3. Fear the Beard II: Harden drops 37 and 12 in Rockets win

    Nov 1, 2012, 12:39 AM EDT

    James Harden

    In case you thought James Harden only looked like he could ball because he was playing next to Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook… honestly, if you thought that what guy have you you watching? Harden has been fantastic the last few years. The guy didn’t make the Olympic team because Coach K liked his beard.…

  4. Iguodala can’t go home again. Not and win, anyway, Philly beats Denver.

    Nov 1, 2012, 12:05 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers center Spencer Hawes blocks a shot by the Denver Nuggets Wilson Chandler during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    Andre Iguodala returned to Philly and got booed. Lustily. Then got a standing ovation after a tribute video. Then largely became irrelevant (he had 11 points) as it became the Spencer Hawes show. It was just that kind of anticlimactic game. I wouldn’t say Philly won this game as much they were less ugly —…

  5. Video: George Hill’s game-winning floater buries the Raptors

    Oct 31, 2012, 11:39 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Toronto Raptors

    Entertaining opening night contest in Toronto between the Raptors and the Pacers.

  6. Warriors GM explains team’s reasoning behind Stephen Curry’s contract extension

    Oct 31, 2012, 9:48 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Donta Smith

    As we mentioned earlier, the Warriors and Stephen Curry came to terms on a contract extension worth $44 million over four years. The deal seems like a better one for Curry than it does for the Warriors on the surface, as the team is betting all that money that Curry’s ankle problems are a thing…

    Oct 31, 2012, 8:27 PM EDT

    pepsi-max-kyrie-irving-uncle-drew

    Maybe the best part of this is the cameo in the first minute. If I have to tell you who that is… Kyrie Irving is back with his Uncle Drew character and this time he brings and older version of Kevin Love — named Wes — along to a park in Crenshaw, California, where they…

  8. Raptors, DeMar DeRozan reach terms on $40 million extension

    Oct 31, 2012, 7:56 PM EDT

    Raptors forward DeMar DeRozan goes to the basket against Bucks forward Tobias Harris during their NBA basketball pre-season game in Toronto

    The Raptors are rebuilding. Trying to figure out who is part of their future. DeMar DeRozan is now locked in as a part of it. At a bigger price that many expected, much likely more than he would have gotten on the open market. The Raptors and DeRozan agreed to a four-year, $40 million extension…

    Oct 31, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    We told you today that the Hornets Eric Gordon is out indefinitely with a bum knee, which means he will be sitting when the Hornets tip off the season Wednesday night against the Spurs. That is the same knee he missed most of last season with following surgery, the one that has slowed him all…

  10. Kenyon Martin wants back in NBA — for mini mid-level

    Oct 31, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    Under the new CBA, a lot of quality veterans who were used to getting a few million to play have had to sign for less than they thought they were worth, taking veteran minimum deals. Kenyon Martin wouldn’t play that game, he wanted to get paid. Now Martin isn’t playing any game — no team…

  11. Blazers plan to use ‘Hack-a-Dwight’ strategy against Howard and the Lakers

    Oct 31, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    After a dismal opening night performance at home in a loss to Dallas, the Lakers will take to the road for their second game in as many nights against a Blazers team that’s ready and waiting. There was plenty wrong with L.A. on Tuesday — the offense was horrid, and the defense (if you want…

  12. Report: James Harden agrees to 5-year, $80 million deal with Houston

    Oct 31, 2012, 3:34 PM EDT

    James Harden

    A difference over dollars was the entire reason that the Thunder traded James Harden to the Rockets, so the news is no surprise, but it has now been confirmed.

  13. Photo of the day: Amar’e Stoudemire’s car is underwater, courtesy of Hurricane Sandy

    amare-stoudemire-car-flood

    Amar’e Stoudemire is getting further away from his return to the basketball court for the Knicks, but even if he was ready, we’re unsure how he’d even make it out of his neighborhood. That’s because his Range Rover is almost completely submerged, thanks to flooding caused by Hurricane Sandy in various parts of the Northeast.…

  14. Knicks at Nets season opener postponed due to storm

    Oct 31, 2012, 2:37 PM EDT

    Brooklyn New Arena

    Sandy was just too much. After quietly saying in the last 24 hours they would not cancel the Nets home opener at the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday, the league confirmed that they would do just that. The reason for the change was apparently the request of New York mayor Bloomberg. “Mayor…

  15. Time for Lakers to trust Steve Nash to get offense working

    Oct 31, 2012, 2:16 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown (R) chats to Steve Nash of Canada during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks in their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    That wasn’t pretty. The Lakers offense in their opening night loss really wasn’t much of anything. It wasn’t very Princeton with its reads and spacing (only in flashes). It wasn’t up-tempo. It wasn’t much pick-and-roll despite some deadly combos on the floor. It really just wasn’t much of anything except making a point to get…

  16. Report: Gilbert Arenas’ deal to play in China ‘falling apart’

    Oct 31, 2012, 2:05 PM EDT

    Jonny Flynn, Gilbert Arenas

    Remember about a week ago, when we told you that Gilbert Arenas was close to signing a contract to play basketball in China? Sure you do. Well, the chances of that happening have diminished significantly since then, and according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the deal appears to be “falling apart.”…

    Eric Gordon comes into the season with a lot to prove. His newly minted max contract combined with his flirtations with the Phoenix Suns have him looking to prove his worth as a player and seeking redemption with Hornets’ fans. All of that will have to wait, though. Gordon, still having soreness in his knee…

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:42 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    UPDATE #3, 2:42 pm: Finally the NBA has come to its senses on this. The league has decided to postpone this game to a future date, one where the subway service is up and running and people can make it to the game. While the arena is open and available fans would have struggled to…
