    Oct 29, 2012, 11:16 AM EDT

    An abandoned home is inundated with water at Shinnecock Bay in Southampton

    The East Coast is hunkered down, trying to ride out hurricane Sandy and the wind and rain she is going to dump all over the area for a week. Coincidentally, the NBA’s regular season starts this week, and a couple of games are potentially impacted. Look at the projected path of the storm and it…

  2. Eddy Curry is your opening night starting center for Dallas

    Oct 29, 2012, 10:34 AM EDT

    Eddy Curry Mavs

    Go ahead and rub your eyes if you want, but you read the headline correctly. Eddy Curry, he of the checkered NBA history who was waived by the Spurs a few days back has not only been claimed by the Dallas Mavericks but also apparently he is jumping straight into the starting lineup. Remember that…

  3. Camby still questionable for opener, Knicks still banged up

    Oct 29, 2012, 9:41 AM EDT

    Knicks Media Day Basketball

    The Knicks don’t start the season until Thursday, and the good news is they only have to travel to Brooklyn for the game. Although hurricane Sandy may make that a little more difficult than it should be. The question hanging over the Knicks is if Marcus Camby will be ready to play. He has been…

  4. Dwight Howard says Lakers fans need to be patient

    Oct 29, 2012, 8:41 AM EDT

    New center Dwight Howard greets Kobe Bryant during NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

    Lakers fans are not exactly a patient group. Win a game by 10 and talk radio the next day in Los Angeles has fans calling in saying it should have been 20. The Lakers can’t just win games, it has to be done with flair. Some Lakers fans will not be satisfied until the Lakers…

  5. Wade “shocked” by Harden trade, still thinks Thunder are best in West

    Oct 29, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat Wade jumps to the basket on top of Oklahoma City Thunder Harden during Game 3 of the NBA basketball finals in Miami

    Everyone was shocked. I mean, a few people had suggested that maybe James Harden could be traded after the season or maybe closer to the deadline in February, but not before the season. Yet it happened. Dwyane Wade was shocked like everyone else. But he doesn’t think the Thunder took much of a step backwards.…

  6. Maynor, Thunder stop contract talks; he will be a free agent

    Oct 29, 2012, 1:09 AM EDT

    Eric Maynor

    Eric Maynor is going to be a key part of the Oklahoma City Thunder this year, a role that just got bigger in the wake of the James Harden trade. Maynor is going to get a piece of the Harden role. No, he hasn’t been asked by management to grow a beard. Probably. But Maynor is…

  7. Report: Denver contract extension talks with Lawson slow

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:35 AM EDT

    Ty Lawson

    Ty Lawson was one member of the draft class of 2009 contract where a contract extension was thought to be a lock. The two sides were talking and the assumption around the league has been that the Nuggets would not let the speedy young point guard that seems born to run George Karl’s offense go.…

  8. Will Kobe play opening night? Pau Gasol ‘has his doubts.’

    Oct 28, 2012, 8:30 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    When Kobe Bryant was shut down for the remainder of the preseason last week due to a foot injury, there seemed to be very little to be concerned about. First of all, there were only two games left, and considering that they were on consecutive days, even a fully healthy Bryant might have sat one…

  9. Count LeBron among those impressed with Anthony Davis

    Oct 28, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    We all knew Anthony Davis was potentially a very special player — some scouts graded him out as the best player in years, better than Blake Griffin or a host of other recent No. 1 overall picks. But he was supposed to be a bit of a project on offense, a guy with potential that…

  10. Video: Daryl Morey talks Rockets’ trade for James Harden

    Oct 28, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    daryl-morey-rockets

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey has been on a quest for an elite player for more than a year — Pau Gasol (part of the Chris Paul trade David Stern blew up), Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony — and he thinks he finally has one in James Harden. Morey was on Comcast SportsNet Houston to talk about…

  11. Michael Beasley adjusting to the green light in Phoenix

    Oct 28, 2012, 4:15 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley, Andre Miller

    Michael Beasley showed a flash of brilliance during the Suns preseason finale on Friday, giving the team a glimpse of the potential that lies within the talented but historically troubled individual. Beasley put up 29 points on 13-of-21 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds, and seemed to do so relatively effortlessly in his 34 minutes of…

  12. Harden confirms he will sign extension with Rockets

    Oct 28, 2012, 2:47 PM EDT

    Olympics - Opening Day

    This is not a surprise, there is no way Daryl Morey made the blockbuster trade for James Harden without checking through back channels that he would sign a contract extension there. He will, Harden said on Sunday. A video of Harden’s meeting with the media is posted on the Rockets official Web site. “Yes, yes,”…

  13. Houston, Daryl Morey got a star in Harden. It’s a start.

    Oct 28, 2012, 12:52 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder James Harden durin

    For the past year or more, Daryl Morey has been on a quest to get the Rockets an elite player to build around. He went hard after Dwight Howard even with Howard’s people saying he wouldn’t re-sign there. He knows you need an elite player to win in this league. He’s now got James Harden.…

  14. Dwyane Wade’s playlist: Jay-Z, 2 Chainz… John Mayer?

    Oct 28, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Dwyade Wade

    First things first — do not ever get your hair cut on a basketball court. Ever. Even if you are Dwyane Wade. Even if they put a tarp down. Those hairs are going to get on the court and be a bear to clean up. While Wade is getting his hair cut he talks musical…

  15. Oklahoma City’s big mistake was Perkins trade, extension

    Oct 28, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins, James Harden

    We all have at least a little bit of stubbornness in us. Not asking for directions? A common mistake rooted in pride. Going down a random, unmarked dirt road for five miles after not asking for directions? A little more foolish. Ending up out of gas in the middle of a field hoping the hills…

  16. NBA players react on twitter to James Harden trade

    Oct 28, 2012, 8:41 AM EDT

    U.S. Olympic basketball player Harden watches during a training session ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester

    When James Harden was traded to the Houston Rockets Saturday night, just like you NBA players had their reactions. Just like you they took to twitter. Here are some of their reactions, starting with Kevin Durant. Who is a company man and isn’t going to go and rip management, but didn’t really praise the move.…

  17. Thunder weaken title chances to save almighty dollar

    Oct 28, 2012, 1:45 AM EDT

    James Harden

    Mark Cuban once said that there are two kinds of NBA owners: Those that want to win and those that want to make money. We know where the Thunder owners fall. Oklahoma City traded their Sixth Man of the Year and best playmaker James Harden — the guy with the sweet beard who often had…

  18. Thunder trade James Harden to the Rockets

    Oct 27, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    Mavericks Thunder Basketball

    Well, this was unexpected. After contract talks broke down, with the Thunder failing to come through with a max contract extension offer for last season’s Sixth Man of the Year in James Harden, Oklahoma City’s GM Sam Presti decided to pull the plug altogether, and has traded Harden to the Houston Rockets. Adrian Wojnarowski of…

  19. Magic waive Quentin Richardson, eat his $5 million salary

    Oct 27, 2012, 10:01 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Orlando Magic - Game Three

    There’s not a lot of drama in NBA training camps, who is toing to make the team because contracts are almost all guaranteed. The ones that are not are a couple guys at the very end of the bench, guys who could bounce down to the D-League for much of the season. Which is why…

  20. Lakers waive Andrew Goudelock

    Oct 27, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Andrew Goudelock

    The Lakers waived Andrew Goudelock on Saturday, bringing the team’s roster down to the league-maximum of 15 players. Goudelock wasn’t expected to make the team with the offseason addition of starting point guard Steve Nash, and with Steve Blake and Chris Duhon firmly in place with guaranteed contracts, it wouldn’t have made sense from a…
