  1. Nowitzki given Germany’s highest sporting honor

    Aug 29, 2011, 2:31 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki Wurzburg Germany

    See what winning a ring can get you? A Silver Laurel Leaf. Which is a huge deal to Dirk Nowitzki. The Silver Laurel Leaf is the highest honor Germany can give its sporting heroes, and Nowitzki got one, according to ESPN Dallas. German President Christian Wulff presented Nowitzki with the Silver Laurel Leaf, praising the…

  2. George Hill to play one exhibition game in ABA

    Aug 29, 2011, 1:45 PM EDT

    Geroge Hill

    George Hill is going to suit up and play some professional basketball in Texas in October. No, the Pacers didn’t trade him back to the Spurs. No, they haven’t solved the lockout. Not even close. Hill has agreed to play in an exhibition game with another squad — the Texas Fuel of the ABA. That…

  3. Winderman: Beasley injury could give other players pause

    Aug 29, 2011, 12:46 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    The NBA-headed-overseas movement appears to be at a waiting-to-exhale moment. For weeks, the “What if?” scenarios of the supposed mass migration were ones mostly reduced to whispers. What if an NBA player is injured overseas? What if such an injury impacted an existing contract? What if overseas insurance doesn’t cover every eventuality? According to a…

  4. Report: League sets Sept. 15 deadline before camps, preseason canceled

    Aug 29, 2011, 12:34 PM EDT

    NHL Season Cancelled

    The NBA has started its campaign to ratchet up the pressure on the players to reach a deal when negotiations between the two sides start again this Wednesday. That pressure — cancellations of the start of training camps and preseason games — was leaked to Hoopsworld’s Steve Kyler. League sources have pegged September 15th as…

  5. Report: Pistons will shop Richard Hamilton after lockout

    Aug 29, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    Is this really shocking? Or even news? Since we’re left to speculating about what teams will do after the lockout, it will pass the test for now. But since the Pistons were reportedly shopping Richard Hamilton at the last trading deadline — any moves were killed by the impending sale of the team — it…

  6. Knicks to make it official: Woodson will be assistant coach

    Aug 29, 2011, 11:33 AM EDT

    Image (1) woodson-thumb-250x172-10475.jpg for post 1651

    Ladies and gentlemen — start your speculation. It had been talked about for a while and today it is set to became official: Mike Woodson Mike D’Antoni’s right hand man, lead assistant and defensive coordinator with the New York Knicks. Marc Berman at the New York Post broke the story. As reported first by The…

  7. Michael Beasley may have broken wrist in China

    Aug 29, 2011, 11:06 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Reports out of China are a little sketchy, but it could be bad news for Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley. First there is this tweet from Rijay Wang (via Hoopshype): Report: Michael Beasley suffered wrist injury in Sunday night at China Championships, had to get wrist re-examined, possible wrist break. Here is the link to the…

  8. Deron Williams’ wrist still not all the way back

    Aug 29, 2011, 10:38 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Larry Sanders

    Deron Williams was in Utah last weekend playing dodgeball. He was playing for charity. Not exactly the high stakes of playing dodgeball to save your gym from being bought by Globo-Gym, but still a very worthy cause. Williams was playing with Kyle Korver, C.J. Miles and Wesley Mathews. And he spoke with the Salt Lake…

  9. Report: Adelman, Timberwolves agree to pay range

    Aug 29, 2011, 10:03 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    It looks like Rick Adelman is one step closer to being the next head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Which in and of itself seems like a minor miracle. One of the nagging questions about the Wolves landing Adelman (who would seem the perfect fit on paper) is if they could afford him — he…

  10. Elton Brand sees some improvement in 76ers

    Aug 29, 2011, 9:20 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday

    A bunch of Philadelphia 76ers got together in Los Angles over the weekend to workout together. We’d love to tell you it’s a pre-training camp get together, but we all know better than that. Still, a good turnout of the starting five of the Sixers and the first guy off the bench last year —…

  11. Video: Highlights from Elite 24 at Venice Beach

    Aug 29, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Big names were coming. Kevin Durant was there. Of course he was — if there was a high-level pro-am game this summer, Durant has been there. He’s sharpening his game, more importantly this has been a summer of sharp little bit of grassroots marketing by KD. Back to the issue at hand, the Elite 24…

  12. Report: Owners, players meeting set for Wednesday

    lockout

    We’re still not sure what good it will do, we’re not convinced the two sides really feel the pressure to compromise and reach a deal, but they will meet in a few days. PBT has reported a meeting is coming, and that it would feature only high-ranking officials. Now, we have a few more details…

  13. Guess who’s coming to Melo league? Hint: It rhymes with “Neddy Whurry.”

    Aug 28, 2011, 7:28 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    I know you were probably excited for the Team Melo vs. non-officially-but-pretty-much Goodman League in the exhibition next month. It’s LeBron, and Melo, and Chris Paul, sharing a court against Kevin Durant and Brandon Jennings and the like. But now, now we have a real reason for you to get excited. Ladies and gentlemen, from Hoopsworld:…

  14. Tunisia earns Olympic berth with upset of Angola

    Aug 28, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    international basketball FIBA

    There are now three teams qualified for the Olympics next year in London — Tunisia will represent Africa after a stunning upset to win AfroBasket. We say stunning upset because Tunisia was taking on Angola, a team that had not lost a game to another African team in a decade, the country that had won…

  15. Report: Ron Artest to do Dancing with the Stars

    Aug 28, 2011, 2:02 PM EDT

    Ron Artest Parade

    Ron Artest is following in Mark Cuban’s footsteps. Literally. It had been rumored that Ron Artest was in talks to take part in Dancing with the Stars this fall (although he seemed down on it), and now Charged.fm and Terez Owens is reporting that the Lakers forward — to officially become Metta World Peace by the…

  16. Video: Kevin Durant and bowling and dancing, woo-hoo!

    Aug 28, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    kevin-durant-game-2

    Apparently Kevin Durant‘s website is starting a new feature called “The 35th Hour.” See, because, Kevin Durant wears No.35. It’s a pun, of sorts. A play on words. Anyway, one of their promos is out, and features a video of Durant doing a pretty ridiculous dance after bowling a strike. Check it out: Why is…

  17. Quote of the Day: SVG goes off on college amateurism

    Aug 28, 2011, 9:30 AM EDT

    Magic head coach Van Gundy reacts during Game 3 of their NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference basketball game against Hawks in Atlanta

    “The system is set up for everybody but the kids while pretending to be about the kids,” Van Gundy said. “Athletics and education should be separate. Colleges shouldn’t be farm systems. It doesn’t make any logical sense. But the schools don’t want to be blatantly in the situation of being professional sports even though they…

  18. Summer star exhibition-o-rama, part deux: Goodman League vs. Melo League coming soon

    Aug 27, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Goodman-Drew was a thriller, even if almost no one got to see it (even those who had tickets). But it was lacking in star power (no offense to James Harden or Brandon Jennings). There’s talk of Kobe joining the Drew League for a rematch in California, but there may be a bigger contest being put…

  19. Javaris Crittenton Update: Still at large, police performed search warrant last week

    Aug 27, 2011, 6:42 PM EDT

    Javaris Crittenton

    More details are coming to light surrounding the fatal shooting in Atlanta for which police have issued an arrest warrant for former NBA player Javaris Crittenton. From the AP: A spokesman with the Atlanta police said Crittenton was not in custody. Calls to the FBI and U.S. Marshal’s office weren’t immediately returned. Three of Crittenton’s…

  20. Sixers organizing team workouts

    Aug 27, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Some players aren’t sitting idly by in the lockout, some are organizing team workouts to keep team chemistry and conditioning high. It’s a show of maturity and dedication that’s nice to see. The lockout’s an easy excuse to torch workout habits and get out of rhythm, making the climb back whenever this thing ends that…
