  1. Delonte West explains the night of his arrest

    Sep 21, 2011, 4:08 PM EDT

    Delonte West

    We’ve heard all sorts of stories about how DeLonte West was arrested driving a three-wheel Can-Am Spyder with multiple weapons in the trunk. We heard how the league suspended him 10 games. How he had to serve out probation. How he had to have treatment for his bipolar disorder. Through it all a caricature of…

  2. LeBron joins crowd, pokes fun at himself in McDonald’s ad

    Sep 21, 2011, 3:01 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    From our “if you can’t beat them, join them” files…. It’s been open season on LeBron James for a few things in the past year — his hairline, The Decision, and the rather foolish statement about the Heat winning “not, four, not five, not six” championships. Many took all this together as a sign of…

  3. Dennis Rodman never had a conversation with Michael Jordan or Scottie Pippen in Chicago

    Sep 21, 2011, 2:33 PM EDT

    Dennis Rodman

    Sport lends itself to the romantic. That much is true, and it was true long before legendary talents turned sportswriters into scribes of myths, before Robert Redford ever swung a bat, and before the imagination of a daydreaming kid allowed him to fill the gaps in the life of his favorite athlete. We sports fans…

  4. Video: Highlights from day 6 of Impact Vegas “lockout league”

    Sep 21, 2011, 2:01 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    We already showed you that Rudy Gay looked plenty healthy Tuesday at the Impact Competitive Training Series (the “lockout league”) in Las Vegas. But there was other stuff worth seeing. For example, not only does Chauncey Billup’s knee look good, so does his jumper. And John Wall has serious handles (but you probably knew that).…

  5. Kenyon Martin to become third Nugget to play in China

    Sep 21, 2011, 1:35 PM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    Kenyon Martin is about to join J.R. Smith and Wilson Chandler as key Denver Nuggets free agents that have decided to play a season in China rather than see how the lockout plays out. And that leaves the Nuggets screwed for next season. Martin’s agent Andy Miller confirmed to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post…

  6. Shaq points to Joe Johnson to explain owners’ mistakes

    Sep 21, 2011, 1:06 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Shaquille O’Neal pulled out the bad contract = lockout card again, but rather than going with the classics — Eddy Curry or Rashard Lewis — he went with the new and threw Atlanta’s Joe Johnson under the bus. Which is both right and wrong at the same time. But we’ll get to that farther down…

  7. First look: Nike LeBron 9

    Sep 21, 2011, 12:56 PM EDT

    11-360_NSW_Lebron_Wide_ 0082

    Nike unveiled its latest update to the LeBron James signature shoe line, and as usual, they appear to have outdone themselves. The LEBRON 9 is the first of Nike’s shoes to integrate both Flywire technology and Hyperfuse construction, along with Max Air 180 and a Nike Zoom unit for maximum cushioning. All that technology together…

  8. What the Suns should do when the lockout ends

    Sep 21, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    This is the latest installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Up next is the Phoenix Suns. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads. Last season: Just one year removed from pushing the eventual…

  9. Video poem: First draft of Yao Ming’s retirement speech

    Sep 21, 2011, 11:56 AM EDT

    Former NBA player Yao attends a business event in Shanghai

    Did we ever know the real Yao Ming? The Yao I saw who with teammates and was came off as thoughtful in his talks with media, it was easy to like him, but he was really a mystery to a lot of fans. When he retired the discussion was more about marketing and global impact…

  10. Chauncey Billups says his knee is good to go… are the Knicks?

    Sep 21, 2011, 11:39 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Chauncey Billups is 35 years old and wasn’t really the guy anyone pictured leading a high-octane offense when he was 25. But there he will be whenever next season starts, as the point guard for Mike D’Antoni’s New York Knicks. That was hampered last season by a strained left knee that made it harder and…

  11. How does “Brooklyn Nets” sound? Looks like team’s name.

    Sep 21, 2011, 10:59 AM EDT

    Kris Humphries

    Next fall, the New Jersey Nets will follow Bruce Springsteen’s advice and “get out while we’re young” and drive up the road to the brand new Barclay Center in Brooklyn. Which means the “New Jersey” part of their name will be a bit out of place. The Nets part could change, too, although teams tend…

  12. Chris Paul’s charity game to feature LeBron, Durant, more

    Sep 21, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Orleans Hornets

    Everybody wants to play with Chris Paul. We’re not even talking about his recruiting as a free agent aside (at least until the lockout ends, when the rumors will start up again). It’s also true of CP3’s charity game. Paul is hosting a charity game Oct. 1 on the campus of Winston Salem University to…

  13. Even if the Knicks suck, the food at the Garden will be good

    Sep 21, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Music Madison Square Garden

    The first phase of the $850 million renovation of Madison Square Garden is just about done and will open when the Rangers start their season soon. It will be ready for the Knicks whenever the NBA gets around to having a season, too. We don’t know how good the Knicks will be once the season…

  14. Last season had O.J. Mayo questioning if he still wanted to play

    Sep 21, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    O. J. Mayo, Kevin Durant

    The first half of last season, O.J. Mayo became marginalized in Memphis. His role with the team was fading, he was coming off the bench and he was shopped around then almost traded to the Pacers. That all changed after Rudy Gay suffered a shoulder injury, the team had to lean on Mayo again and…

  15. Peace out — Artest eliminated from Dancing With The Stars

    Sep 20, 2011, 11:41 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers NBA basketball player Artest arrives at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles

    For once, the votes of Lakers fans could not vault one of their own up the board. Well, that or they actually saw him dance. Metta World Peace — the dancer and Laker formerly known as Ron Artest — was the first contestant eliminated from Dancing with the Stars during Tuesday night’s elimination show. Which was…

  16. Video: Rudy Gay is looking pretty good in his first game back

    Sep 20, 2011, 9:23 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    We told you Monday that Rudy Gay was finally cleared for on court basketball, and he was working out at the Impact series in Las Vegas. Um, he looks pretty healthy in this video, with the putback. Video via hoopsmixtape.

  17. Spurs “rodeo road trip” highlights schedule issues if games are missed

    Sep 20, 2011, 7:59 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    It is not impossible for the NBA season to start on time. However, once you factor in time needed for a shortened free agent period and training camps (again shortened), the owners and players need to hammer out a deal in about a week or so. So, not impossible, but I wouldn’t bet your rent…

  18. Blazers searching Cho’s replacement as GM

    Sep 20, 2011, 7:10 PM EDT

    Rich Cho

    From CBS’ Ben Golliver: PORTLAND, Ore. — More than 100 days after “parting ways” with former GM Rich Cho weeks before the 2011 NBA Draft, the PortlandTrail Blazers have yet to hire Cho’s full-time replacement. Blazers president Larry Miller did finally confirm that the GM search process has progressed in a telephone interview with CBSSports.com on…

  19. What the Blazers should do if the lockout ends

    Sep 20, 2011, 6:14 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks - Game One

    The Blazers had an interesting year last season. Brandon Roy‘s injuries made him a shell of his former self, and 2007 #1 pick had yet another devastating knee injury that caused him to miss a full season. However, the team got a breakout year from LaMarcus Aldridge, Wesley Matthews backed up his contract, and a…

  20. Jason Terry will re-sign with Dallas, leverage be damned

    Sep 20, 2011, 5:26 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Jason Terry is one of the pessimists. He doesn’t want to be, but like a lot of players who were disappointed after last week’s negotiating session he’s not sure the owners and players are that close to a deal. But whenever the two sides do make a deal, he is going to re-sign with the…
