    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…

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    The Andrew Bynum era in Philadelphia is not off to a great start. And from the looks of things, it’ll be a while longer before it even gets started at all. Bynum has been officially ruled out for the Sixers’ season opener against Denver on Wednesday, according to a team release (via Philly.com): “While Andrew…

  5. Mark Cuban hopes the Lakers “suck.” They did for a night.

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:12 PM EDT

    Lakers starters chat during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    There are a whole lot of people rooting for the Lakers to suck this year after forming their own West Coast superteam with Dwight Howard and Steve Nash. Mark Cuban is just the most prominent of them. From Mark Medina at the Daily News (hat tip to SLAM): “I don’t care,” Cuban said before the…

  6. Kobe says foot “80-85%,” expect him to play Wednesday

    Oct 31, 2012, 10:35 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant reacts during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks in their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Kobe Bryant looked Kobe Bryant in the opener — early on he was getting touches at the rim and was moving well, later in the game he drained a rainbow contested long two he never should have taken. He looked a little slower trying to defend O.J.Mayo off the ball as the game wore on,…

  7. Kevin Garnett tries to explain why he couldn’t shake Ray Allen’s hand

    Oct 31, 2012, 9:34 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    This is Kevin Garnett’s act — he plays in some 1960s NBA where the players hate the opposing players on and off the court and want nothing to do with them. Fans eat it up because that’s how they feel even though often KG comes off as an a******. Which brings us to last night,…

  8. Video: LeBron’s monster dunk (with Ray Allen’s silent assist)

    Oct 31, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James reacts after scoring on a dunk as Boston Celtics defenders look on during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Enjoy that dunk for its power. The dunk is full of so many of LeBron James‘ gifts — handles, speed, strength that all come together in an almost unfair package. It is one of the big highlights from the Heat’s opening night win over Boston. But watch that dunk again and see that Ray Allen…

  9. Quote of the Day: Cavs’ Anderson Varejao is Secretariat

    Oct 31, 2012, 7:45 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    “Andy is a horse, man. He might win the Kentucky Derby by himself. I might have to saddle up and try and ride him to victory. That’s how strong of a leader he is.” — Cavaliers’ forward Tristan Thompson after Anderson Varejao had a career best 23 rebounds (12 offensive) plus 9 points and 9…

  10. Mavericks utilize Guerrilla Warfare; spoil Nash and Howard debuts

    Oct 31, 2012, 3:26 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Hanging out in the shadows cast by the debuts of Dwight Howard, Steve Nash, the Princeton Offense and the return of Kobe Bryant was the Dallas Mavericks, a team everyone assumed would play the role of wrestling jobber — hang around for a few minutes, show off a few moves, and then take that fall…

  11. Three Stars of the Night

    Basketball is back! Hockey? Well, not so much. That doesn’t mean we can’t pay homage to the guys on ice by handing out the Three Stars of the Night, basketball style. Tonight’s stars feature a few familiar faces in new places, and a player who did something that hasn’t been done in 25 years: Third…

  12. Dwyane Wade calls Rondo’s flagrant foul a ‘punk play’

    Oct 31, 2012, 1:21 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    With 16 seconds remaining in the Heat’s opening night victory over the Celtics, Rajon Rondo grabbed Dwyane Wade around the neck on a drive, earning a flagrant foul-one call from the officials. The play was clearly made out of frustration, and was an unnecessary one with the Heat up by 11 with so little time…

  13. Kyrie Irving would like to remind you he is very good. And Cavaliers win.

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:47 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    You know why the Cleveland and Washington were on the NBA opening night schedule along with marquee teams like the Lakers, Heat and Celtics? Because the NBA likes to showcase its future, and here were John Wall and Kyrie Irving to entertain you… except John Wall is out for a while with a cracked patella.…

  14. LeBron gets his ring, leads Heat to opening night win over Celtics

    Oct 30, 2012, 11:55 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    The last time the Heat opened the season after raising a banner and receiving their championship rings, the night was all about the pre-game festivities. After celebrating the 2006 NBA title, Miami had no interest in the basketball game that followed, and suffered an embarrassing 42-point loss at home to open the season at the…

  15. LeBron, Wade, and the Heat get their championship rings (VIDEO)

    Oct 30, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat players Wade, and James hold their championship rings from the 2012 season after they received them during a ceremony in Miami

    It happened perhaps a year later than LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh envisioned when they joined forces in Miami in the summer of 2010, but the Heat won their first championship with this superstar core last season. To the winners go the spoils, and in the NBA, that means receiving gaudy, diamond-encrusted, and…

  16. In shocking news, Kevin Garnett has no interest in Ray Allen (VIDEO)

    Oct 30, 2012, 9:40 PM EDT

    Ray Allen

    It’s only opening night, and I’m already sick of the burgeoning feud between Ray Allen and the Boston Celtics. We get it — Boston fans (and apparently teammates) aren’t pleased with Allen’s decision to leave to go to the one team that primarily stands in the Celtics’ way of getting back to the NBA Finals.…

  17. Cavs owner Gilbert says he regrets guaranteeing titles. You don’t say.

    Oct 30, 2012, 9:35 PM EDT

    Business Leaders Address Detroit Economic Club

    All too often in life, we are the last ones to come to the realizations that everyone else around us figured out a long time ago. Like that girl we were dating was essentially Linda Blair from the Exorcist. Or we really shouldn’t have let our frustrations lead us to saying something stupid in public.…

  18. Andrew Bogut goes through full practice with Warriors for second straight day

    Oct 30, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    As we broke down in our season preview, how this year turns out for the Warriors is perhaps more dependent on the health of the team’s stars than anything else. Now technically, that could be said about every team in the league — except with the history of injuries suffered by Stephen Curry and Andrew…

  19. Kobe says he’ll play opening night against Dallas

    Oct 30, 2012, 8:26 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    The wait is over. The Lakers will debut their super-team at full strength later this evening, when Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash, Pau Gasol, and Metta World Peace will all be in the starting lineup when the team takes the floor at home against the Dallas Mavericks. Bryant missed his team’s final two preseason…

  20. Video: David Stern calls Hurricane Sandy ‘Katrina’ during Heat ring ceremony

    Oct 30, 2012, 8:07 PM EDT

    David Stern

    For some reason, David Stern gets booed by NBA fans at every arena where he’s introduced. It’s become hilarious at this point, especially in a place like Miami where Stern’s stance in favor of free agents’ right to choose enables super-teams to assemble — you know, like the one the Heat put together that ended…
