    We still don’t know who the buyer is, but apparently the sale of the Atlanta Hawks is moving along quickly. The Atlanta Spirit — the name of the ownership group — recently sold the NHL’s Thrashers (which moved to Winnipeg) and now are on track to sell the NBA team. The Atlanta Journal Constitution has…

  2. Video: Yo, it’s Yao

    Jul 20, 2011, 10:22 PM EDT

    Yao Ming

    A decade from now, people will talk far more about Yao Ming‘s cultural impact than his game (that may already be the case, but too many people underestimate how good he was for a man his size). Yao also got some endorsements, and this one VISA commercial is one I always recall, because it was…

  3. French team sends Noah back home for ankle rehab

    Jul 20, 2011, 9:02 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game One

    With a couple weeks to go in the regular season, Joakim Noah sprained his ankle and missed a few games. He came back to play the final six and all the Bulls playoff games. But is ankle was never right, and the French team doctors didn’t like what they saw. So the French — who…

  4. Report: Two teams fined for speaking about players

    Jul 20, 2011, 8:15 PM EDT

    no talking

    It was bound to happen — David Stern is a stickler for his rules. One of his rules was team officials cannot even talk about players during the lockout. (Go look at NBA.com and try to find a picture of a current player.) Now two teams have gotten their wrist slapped for this, tweeted Yahoo’s…

  5. Ron Artest talks lockout, stand-up comedy

    Jul 20, 2011, 6:58 PM EDT

    Ron Artest Parade

    Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick recently did an absolutely classic interview with Ron Artest (whose name has not been changed to Metta World Peace yet), and the Laker forward talked about his television career, why he would want to play in the UK in a lockout, and his budding stand-up comedy career. Here’s a quick excerpt:…

  6. Yep, Jason Terry is developing a reality show

    Jul 20, 2011, 5:24 PM EDT

    Jason Terry, who won the NBA Finals after getting the trophy tattooed on his bicep, is clearly not a man who lacks confidence on the court. Now it looks like Terry is bringing that confidence to an extracurricular project that seems like something of a long shot to become a success. The news comes via…

  7. Delonte West wants to remain a Celtic

    Jul 20, 2011, 5:17 PM EDT

    Delonte West, Rajon Rondo

    According to Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston, unrestricted free agent guard Delonte West would like to stay with the Boston Celtics next season: West is an unrestricted free agent this summer and Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge previously expressed a desire in retaining West’s services at season’s end. The team stuck by West…

  8. Matt Bonner isn’t Canadian enough, apparently

    Jul 20, 2011, 4:29 PM EDT

    Matt Bonner

    Matt Bonner wants to be Canadian. And not in the “put a maple leaf on your bag as you travel through Europe so you don’t have to try and explain American politics” kind of way. He played for the Raptors, lives in Toronto in the off-season, his wife and daughter are Canadian, and he wants…

  9. Bulls Kyle Korver calls lockout a “shame”

    Jul 20, 2011, 4:03 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    I’m not sure I ever thought of Kyle Korver as a guy with the common man’s touch. But he sure sounded like it when talking lockout with CSN Chicago. “It’s a shame,” Korver said. “The NBA makes too much money for everybody not to be making a little bit already, right?” Korver went on to…

  10. Top five unrestricted free agents… where will they go?

    Jul 20, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Free agency is not going to be as much fun this time around. Whenever the owners and players get around to settling the lockout the free agency period will be condensed and hectic. Not that I really miss the drama of Lebron dragging out his decision, but it’s fun to watch things break over a…

  11. Don’t be shocked to see ‘Melo in some exhibition games

    Jul 20, 2011, 2:08 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    This weekend Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Tyreke Evans and others will be in the Philippines for an exhibition game. Putting on a show for some fans in a basketball mad country. There will be more exhibition gams like this, especially if the lockout drags on and games are missed. Expect to…

    Good on Mario Chalmers. The free agent point guard who should have seen more minutes in the finals (if it meant fewer minutes for Mike Bibby) has opened a shop for cancer patients in a Lawrence, Kansas, hospital, the Associated Press reports. Cancer claimed the life of the mother of a childhood friend of Chalmers,…

  13. Alonzo Mourning sued over alleged hit-and-run accident

    Jul 20, 2011, 1:17 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Miami Heat

    With the Miami Heat back in the NBA finals, Alonzo Mourning seemed to back in the news a lot. Which is good, we missed Zo. This, however, is not how he wanted to be back in the news. From the Sun-Sentinel. A Miami college student was to file a lawsuit Wednesday claiming he was injured…

  14. Video: Jimmer Fredette has NBA range on his shot

    Jul 20, 2011, 12:39 PM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    There remain plenty of questions about how Jimmer Fredette’s game will translate to the NBA level. What was never in question was if he could shoot. He has range. As he showed at his Jimmer Camp, he has half court range. Not that coach Westphal wants him shooting from half court. First, not an efficient…

  15. NBA players returning to Seattle for exhibition

    Jul 20, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Seattle_Sonics

    It was five years ago Tuesday that the Seattle Sonics were sold to the group — Clay Bennett’s The Professional Basketball Club, LLC — that a couple years later would move them to Oklahoma City. Kevin Pelton has a must-read post on his recolections of that day. There are a lot of good basketball fans…

  16. Iverson talks Turkey, legacy, wanting back in NBA

    Jul 20, 2011, 11:37 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Allen Iverson has been there and done that. We mean he’s done just about everything, including playing overseas. While NBA players are now flirting with European teams during the lockout, Iverson spent last season playing for Besiktas in Turkey (the team that signed Deron Williams). Well, when he wasn’t injured. In an interview with CSNPhilly.com…

  17. Howard doesn’t think the Magic get enough love from media

    Jul 20, 2011, 11:09 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Dwight Howard, you do not get to have it both ways. The center was in Paris recently, part of a promotional tour by adidas, and said the Magic do not get enough love from the American media. It was part of an interview with the French magazine Reverse, transcribed by web site TalkBasket. “I really…

  18. NBA “European vacation” roundup: Kobe a long shot

    Jul 20, 2011, 9:56 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    As the NBA lockout drags out — and the two sides are not expected to talk seriously until August — the rumors about NBA players heading overseas continue. All these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt — for one, international basketball governing body FIBA has yet to rule if an NBA player…

  19. Timberwolves may still interview Bickerstaff

    Jul 20, 2011, 8:48 AM EDT

    Bickerstaff

    The Minnesota Timberwolves are off to a fast start with interviews — Terry Porter and Mike Woodson have sat down with Wolves management, Don Nelson has spoke to them on the phone and likely will get an interview. But don’t count out Bernie Bickerstaff, tweets beat writer Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. Expect Timberwolves…

  20. Yao Ming walks away from NBA, makes retirement official

    Jul 20, 2011, 8:21 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Yao Ming — the former No. 1 overall pick of the Houston Rockets who for several years was the best center in the game and who helped globalize the NBA by making it the most popular American sport in China — made his retirement official in a ceremony Wednesday in China. Ongoing foot problems —…
