  1. None other than Warren Buffett praises LeBron’s business savvy

    Nov 2, 2012, 7:08 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James has never made a secret of his desire to be a billionaire, which when he was younger came off like some of his other boasts — the ramblings of person who has never really had to deal with the real world. But things seem to be changing. On the court we have seen…

  2. Eric Gordon says doctor told him 4-6 to return, no surgery

    Nov 2, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon wanted another opinion on his knee injury, and that doctor says to wait longer. But that no surgery is needed, contrary to an earlier report. When there are conflicting reports out there the best strategy is to go with the best source. In the case of Gordon’s knee, Marc Spears of Yahoo spoke…

  3. The interconnectivity of the Lakers’ problems

    Nov 2, 2012, 5:04 PM EDT

    Lakers starters walk onto the court after a timeout during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks in their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    If you ask five people what’s wrong with the Lakers, you’re likely to get five different answers. That’s what happens when a team with that caliber of talent opens the season 0-2. There are simply too many things to pick at for there to only be one thing wrong. That said, the Lakers issues aren’t…

  4. Bucks Mbah a Moute to miss at least two more weeks

    Nov 2, 2012, 4:20 PM EDT

    Mbah a Moute

    The Milwaukee Bucks miss Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. They want him back, the healthy Mbah a Moute from a couple seasons ago. The one that is near the top of wing defenders in the league. The one that does the little things on offense, cutting baseline off the ball while the defense is still focused…

  5. “It doesn’t look good” for Nash to play for Lakers Friday

    Nov 2, 2012, 3:12 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

    Officially Steve Nash is still listed as doubtful and is a game-time decision for the Lakers when they take on the Clippers Friday night. But if you just want to go ahead and move him into the “not going to play” column, go ahead. Nobody is going to blame you. Here is what Mike Bresnahan…

  6. Andrew Bogut will not play second night of back-to-backs

    Nov 2, 2012, 2:52 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut is back on an NBA court — he played 18 minutes for the Warriors in their season opener against Phoenix, hitting four of his six shots and adding six rebounds, generally playing pretty well. But the Warriors are going to go slow with Bogut, not rush him back. They have to think long…

  7. Bobcats, Augustin had a free agency flap you didn’t notice

    Nov 2, 2012, 2:10 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin

    It is the NBA’s equivalent of a tree falling in the forest — if the Bobcats have a free agency flap will anyone notice? Apparently it’s not just the superstar players — your Ray Allens and Dwight Howards — who have flaps with their teams. Who move on because of it. We just don’t noticed.…

  8. Manu Ginobili very close to making his season debut

    Nov 2, 2012, 2:07 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Ty Lawson

    After Tony Parker’s clutch basket led to a thrilling victory over one of the west’s elite powers, the Spurs are again showing they will be a team to be reckoned with this season. It’s scary to think, then, that the Spurs are about to get even better but that’s exactly what’s going to happen. Manu…

  9. Wade thinks Heat/Knicks game Friday should have been postponed

    Nov 2, 2012, 1:33 PM EDT

    East Coast Begins To Clean Up And Assess Damage From Hurricane Sandy

    Thursday night the NBA postponed the Nets first regular season game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn because of the damage (particularly to the subways) in New York. There are a lot of people in the city questioning if the New York Marathon should be run Sunday (it is going on). But Friday night’s Knicks…

  10. Video: Gregg Popovich remains king of in-game interviews

    Nov 2, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich

    With Phil Jackson and Stan Van Gundy now off the sidelines (Van Gundy is now with us at NBC), Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is now the undisputed champion of the in-game interview. Witness David Aldridge’s attempt last night, when he mistakenly asks if Pops is “happy” with the Spurs ball movement in a game his…

  11. Eric Gordon isn’t asking for a trade, it’s about the knee

    Nov 2, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Nobody is sure what is going on with Eric Gordon’s knee. Not the doctors, they seem to say there is no structural damage (at least according to GM Del Demps). Not Eric Gordon, he says he had a setback but is vague and talking about more information coming in. Certainly not the fans in New…

  12. One and done: Mavs to release Eddy Curry, sign Troy Murphy

    Nov 2, 2012, 11:34 AM EDT

    Eddy Curry Mavs

    In his one NBA game for Dallas, Eddy Curry played fairly well, coming off the bench for 16 minutes, scoring 7 points and grabbing 4 boards. But he is out and Troy Murphy is in. The Dallas Morning News reports that the Mavericks have reached a one-year deal with Murphy. He spent last season coming…

  13. Video: Tim Duncan blocks Kevin Durant going to rim

    Nov 2, 2012, 10:58 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    Go ahead, call Tim Duncan old. He’s not 25-year-old Tim Duncan anymore, but he is still one of the best forwards to ever play the game — and he can still play it. He can still get up and send your weak stuff back. Don’t ask me, ask Kevin Durant. Hat tip to SLAM.

  14. Amir Johnson wore shoes with Amir Johnson’s face on them

    Nov 2, 2012, 10:11 AM EDT

    amir johnson face shoes

    Half the league (or more) wear shoes with Michael Jordan’s silhouette on them. A handful of guys have their own signature shoes to lace up. Then there is Toronto’s Amir Johnson, who took the floor in the opener wearing custom Nike’s with his own face on them (hat tip to The Basketball Jones for noticing…

  15. Report: Antonio McDyess thinking about return to NBA

    Nov 2, 2012, 9:44 AM EDT

    McDYESS_ANTONIO

    Antonio McDyess, last seen coming off the Spurs bench and playing respectably if not well, is thinking about returning to the NBA after a year off. With teams always looking for help along the front line, and with his reputation as being good in the locker room, the 6’9” McDyess might get some attention. Adrian…

  16. Video: Anthony Davis talks gold medal and unibrow care

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Hornets' Davis shoots a free throw against Spurs during the second half of their NBA basketball in New Orleans

    Anthony Davis was on NBC Sports Network’s SportsTalk Thursday and talked Tim Duncan, his gold medal being his most prized award and of course the unibrow, specifically care and maintainance of said fashion statement. It’s hard not to like this guy. Both on the court where he has handles, shot blocking, moves around the rim…

  17. Kobe Bryant: “’Everybody shut up. Let us work.”

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Lakers starters chat during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Hey, Charles Barkley and Shaq. Hey, Lakers haters who have savored the past week. Hey Lakers fans. Yes you. The ones saying the it’s all Mike Brown’s fault the Lakers are 0-2. The ones blaming the Princeton offense for everything except Hurricane Sandy. All of you. Kobe Bryant has two words for you: Shut up.…

  18. Tony Parker’s clutch buckets late help Spurs take down the Thunder

    Nov 2, 2012, 1:23 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Serge Ibaka

    This was a game the Thunder could have won, and watching how the last few possessions played out, it’s one the Thunder should have won. But in the end, San Antonio had the execution that Oklahoma City did not, and the Spurs came away with a buzzer-beating 86-84 win over the Thunder to give them…

  19. Video: Tony Parker beats the Thunder at the buzzer

    Nov 2, 2012, 12:16 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Kevin Durant

    This was a game the Thunder very much could have won. Most watching would say they should have won, but Tony Parker had other ideas. With the game tied at 84 and with less than six seconds remaining, Parker began the Spurs’ final possession on the far side of the floor. He curled baseline and…

  20. Why didn’t Dwight Howard and Chris Paul end up playing together?

    Nov 1, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    Today’s NBA is nothing like the eras of the league that have long since passed. Picture Michael Jordan recruiting Isiah Thomas to join the Bulls, or Larry Bird trying to coerce Magic Johnson into leaving L.A. for the bright lights cold weather and rickety conditions of the ancient Boston Garden. Exactly — it just wasn’t…
