  1. How Jordan is stepping out of Bobcats basketball decisions

    Sep 10, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    The Bobcats started out a mess under Michael Jordan, which was a problem because he took over a mess from the owner before him. And on the court last season, things did not look a lot better as they went 7-59. But it was a mess for very Jordan reasons. And there should be legitimate…

  2. Celtics icon Bill Russell had a couple recent heart procedures

    Sep 10, 2012, 5:05 PM EDT

    President Obama Honors Medal Of Freedom Recipients

    We don’t have a lot of details here, all we can do is hope for the best. Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell was not at a youth charity golf event in Long Island last weekend — an event to which he has deep personal ties as one of the founders of the MENTOR organization. Now…

  3. Chris Bosh’s shoes have Larry O’Brien trophy on them

    Sep 10, 2012, 4:33 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    Last week, NBA folks were all over New York Fashion week. Rajon Rondo was there working for GQ. Dwyane Wade, Amare Stoudemire, Kris Humphries, Russell Westbrook, Tyson Chandler. even Knicks coach Mike Woodson made an appearance watching near a runway. And Chris Bosh was there, too. The photo on the right is courtesty GQ, and…

  4. Real Madrid calls, then hangs up phone on Mehmet Okur

    Sep 10, 2012, 3:25 PM EDT

    Mehmet Okur

    Mehmet Okur is still out there as a free agent. He could play a role as a big off the bench for a minimum salary, but the Timberwolves, Nets and others have passed. You would think at this point Okur would fit better in Europe, but according to a tweet from Spanish basketball writer Paco…

  5. Report: Alonzo Gee reaches multi-year deal with Cavaliers

    Sep 10, 2012, 2:41 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    They were reportedly close to a deal nearly a month ago, yet nothing got finalized. The Cavaliers wanted Alonzo Gee back and he actually could have a starting role for them, but as always it came down to money. Apparently the two sides have figured it out, tweets the Plain Dealer. F/G Alonzo Gee, who…

  6. Aldridge, Batum stepping into leadership role for Portland

    Sep 10, 2012, 1:37 PM EDT

    Nicolas Batum, Greg Stiemsma

    A few years ago, there was no doubt that the Portland Trail Blazers were Brandon Roy’s team. Then his knees happened. Now we are all rooting for him to make a comeback in Minnesota that sticks. And now other guys are stepping up to lead in Portland. New Blazers GM Neil Olshey was talking on…

  7. Kevin Garnett reiterates: “I will retire as a Celtic for sure”

    Sep 10, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    Not that there was much doubt after he inked a new three-year deal at age 36, but Kevin Garnett wants you to know where his loyalties lie. He’s a Celtic. Forever. KG is touring through Asia pimping shoes (as a lot of NBA players do this time of year, Garnett is with Anta) and spoke…

  8. The Inbounds: Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade and the actualization of scorers

    Sep 10, 2012, 12:38 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Does Kobe Bryant need to be more like Dwyane Wade? Or does Dwyane Wade need to be more like Kobe Bryant? Neither? Both? Hungry? Who’s hungry? The biggest challenge for any player in the NBA is the same one so many children struggle with: how to play with others. Particularly those whose talents are self-mobilized.…

  9. Could the Heat be looking to move Joel Anthony?

    Sep 10, 2012, 12:25 PM EDT

    Joel Anthony

    Pat Riley is not afraid to make moves. He’s got his big three in Miami, a few nice role players around them and that is enough to have them in title contention. If he can make a move that improves the team or saves some money, he’ll do it, but he can do it on…

  10. Video: Official trailer for NBA 2K13… we’re getting pumped

    Sep 10, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    Kevin_Durant NBA 2K13

    There are things I love seeing in this video: A healthy Derrick Rose on the bounce, Jason Terry in Celtics green, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook doing their thing, DeMarcus Cousins creating position on the block like the beast he is. All the things that have me pumped for the start of regular season. Or…

  11. Shaq doesn’t want to talk Howard until he wins three rings

    Sep 10, 2012, 11:52 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard speaks during a press conference at the Lakers practice facility in El Segundo, California

    Okay, we get it — Shaquille O’Neal doesn’t really like Dwight Howard. Maybe it goes back to the Superman nickname, or maybe Shaq disliked all challengers to his status as the best center in the game, but the thing has taken on a Hatfields vs. McCoys level of foolishness. Especially since Howard is now following…

  12. Thaddeus Young wants to start at three spot for Sixers

    Sep 10, 2012, 10:55 AM EDT

    Thaddeus young

    Thaddeus Young should be on your “Sixth Man of the Year” watch list. He averaged 12.8 points and 5 rebounds a game for the Sixers last year and this season he could bring a surge of athleticism and scoring when he enters the game for the Sixers. Except he doesn’t want to be on your…

  13. Winderman: Juwan Howard, other name players could fade away from NBA

    Sep 10, 2012, 10:05 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The fadeaway long has been an NBA fact of life. While the stars hold press conferences to announce enough is enough, their fame to keep them in the spotlight (and possibly part of broadcast teams) long after their playing days — something we soon might get from Ben Wallace — for the majority of those…

  14. Video: Blake Griffin can still dunk. Very, very hard.

    Sep 10, 2012, 8:43 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield is a confident man. And apparently not all that bright at times. He thought he could get up enough to block a Blake Griffin dunk during an workout (Griffin was back at his alma mater). That goes about as well as you’d expect. He could have asked Kendrick Perkins or Pau Gasol…

  15. Chris Bosh bulking up, a little, for season as Heat center

    Sep 10, 2012, 8:19 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    When the Miami Heat tip off their season opener on Sept. 29 against Boston, don’t be shocked if Chris Bosh starts at the four spot, with Joel Anthony or someone back at the five. But if that game is close at the end, Bosh will be at the five and LeBron James at the four.…

  16. Kris Humphries can laugh at himself, understands why you do, too

    Sep 10, 2012, 2:28 AM EDT

    Lacoste - Front Row - Spring 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    Kris Humphries reality-show marriage to Kim Kardashian was a joke. Not really a funny one. But some people are laughing at the Nets power forward. And that includes Humphries himself, the power forward told the New York Post in a Page 6 interview. “Hey, if you can’t laugh at yourself, you can’t make fun of…

  17. Three weeks to training camp… Kobe ain’t dead yet

    Sep 9, 2012, 9:30 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    The wait is almost over. We’re three weeks and three days from training camp, and the start of the 2012-2013 NBA season. Basketball is almost back. As we get closer we’ll be bringing you reminders of why this game is awesome, what you’ve missed, and what to look forward to. I get bugged a lot…

  18. Report: Dominic McGuire signs with Toronto

    Sep 9, 2012, 7:13 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    Dominic McGuire has hung out there as one of the few name free agents left on the list. McGuire was a reserve in Golden State last year, averaging just 17.6 minutes. He averaged just 7.3 points per 36 minutes, but also tagged close to 8 rebounds and 1.4 assists at that rate. Additionally, it was…

  19. Shaq will not be playing in the Mexican League

    Sep 9, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    2nd Annual Cartoon Network Hall Of Game Awards - Arrivals

    There was a report last week about Shaquille O’Neal possibly playing in the Mexican League. It would have been just a publicity gig, but would have worked out well for both sides. But then, the report would have to be accurate. And Shaq, speaking to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, says it isn’t. Is there any truth…

  20. Three weeks to training camp… Kyrie Irving is not afraid of the moment

    Sep 9, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    The wait is almost over. We’re three weeks and three days from training camp, and the start of the 2012-2013 NBA season. Basketball is almost back. As we get closer we’ll be bringing you reminders of why this game is awesome, what you’ve missed, and what to look forward to. The point guard position in…
