  1. Kobe pushing Howard to be more complete offensive player

    Oct 22, 2012, 4:40 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    There’s still a reputation among some that “all Dwight Howard can do is dunk.” It’s wrong. First, the basic premise that “all this guy can do is get the most efficient shot in basketball on a regular basis” and somehow that makes him a bad offensive player is flawed. But beyond that, anybody who has…

  2. Will Dwight Howard stay with Lakers after season? Yes. Probably.

    Oct 22, 2012, 3:03 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    We didn’t need John Cusack driving across country with Daphne Zuniga to teach us there are no sure things in life. Unexpected twists turn what seem predestined into something all together different every day. So sure, it is possible that come next summer when Dwight Howard becomes a free agent he will choose not to…

  3. Report: Gilbert Arenas close to signing contract to play in China

    Oct 22, 2012, 2:06 PM EDT

    Jonny Flynn, Gilbert Arenas

    Since being amnestied by the Orlando Magic before the start of last season, Gilbert Arenas has been trying to make his way back into the league. He finally caught on with the Memphis Grizzlies near the end of the season, making 17 regular season appearances and averaging only 4.2 points in 12.4 minutes a game.…

  4. Referees to enforce “Reggie Miller rule” on shooters trying to draw fouls

    Oct 22, 2012, 12:54 PM EDT

    Reggie Miller

    You know the play were are talking about — the jump shooter goes up and gets his shot off as the defender comes out to challenge the shot, then just as the defender arrives the shooter kicks his legs forward, makes contact with the defender and goes down like he was shot. It’s about trying…

  5. GMs predict Heat to beat Lakers for title, LeBron to get MVP

    Oct 22, 2012, 12:28 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    The Lakers are the sexy new girl on the block, the latest super team to land the disgruntled star of another franchise, the team everybody says can challenge the Miami Heat for an NBA title. But NBA GMs still think the Heat get the ring. And LeBron gets another MVP. The NBA conducts an annual…

  6. Video: Roy Hibbert dances Gangnam style at mall

    Oct 22, 2012, 11:25 AM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Oh, flash mobs, you will never go out of style. This is some Pacers fans and dancers breaking into a spontaneous “Gangnam Style” routine, as is prone to happen at shopping centers around the nation. But this one is led by none other than Roy Hibbert. Hibbert is not only one of the best traditional…

  7. NBA season preview: San Antonio Spurs

    Oct 22, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    Last Season: A classic, and what we’ve largely come to expect from these Spurs over the last five years — achieving regular season success, making a dent in the playoffs, but ultimately falling short of a title. San Antonio finished tied for the league’s best record, then swept its way through the first two rounds of…

  8. Video: Thomas Robinson throws down over Dwight Howard

    Oct 22, 2012, 10:10 AM EDT

    Thomas Robinson

    Welcome back to NBA action, Dwight Howard. That would be Kings rookie power forward Thomas Robinson who is not going to just let you have that rebound. That is quite the athletic move by the young Robinson. With a front line of Robinson and DeMarcus Cousins, there is some real reason for hope in Sacramento.…

  9. Gregg Popovich says LeBron has been able to tune out critics

    Oct 22, 2012, 9:53 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    You don’t like LeBron James. You still go into the comments on this blog or talk radio shows and slam him every chance you get. You boo him when he comes to the arena in your town. Your opinion seemed echoed throughout the media. Two years ago that bothered LeBron. He admitted he didn’t like…

  10. Video: Dwight Howard finishes ally-oop for first Lakers bucket

    Oct 22, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Jason Thompson

    We’ve already told you how Dwight Howard‘s first game as a Laker went. Now we thought we’d bring you a shot of his first bucket. This is one thing we could see a lot of, the high-low, big-to-big passing from Pau Gasol to Howard. Defenders have to come out and respect Gasol from 18 feet…

  11. Ray Allen gives backstory on feud with Rajon Rondo

    Oct 22, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Miami Heat Media Day

    Ray Allen isn’t done talking about the Celtics and Rajon Rondo just yet. He should be, he should just stop answering questions about his time in Boston and let his play do the talking, but he’s not. So in a series of interviews last week, Allen talked more about how he came to leave Boston…

  12. Mavericks “optimistic” Nowitzki back in 3-4 weeks

    Oct 22, 2012, 1:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks' Nowitzki walks off the court during a timeout against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final playoff basketball game in Dallas

    Dirk Nowitzki had his knee scoped last Friday, something that needed to happen to get rid of the irritation that had already forced him to have his knee drained twice in since training camp opened. The only question is how much of the regular season he would miss. The original reports suggested he would be…

  13. Dwight Howard posts double-double in preseason debut for the Lakers

    Oct 22, 2012, 12:48 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard made his preseason debut for the Lakers on Sunday, and for the most part, he showcased every bit of the all-world individual talent that we’ve all become accustomed to seeing. The rust was noticeable, however, and if this first run was any indication, the team concept will take quite a while to develop…

  14. It’s official: Dwight Howard making Lakers debut Sunday vs. Kings

    Oct 21, 2012, 7:58 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard poses for photos during NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

    Dwight Howard is ready to go. Multiple reports out of Staples Center confirm rumors from this week that Dwight Howard will make his debut for the Lakers on Sunday night as they take on the Sacramento Kings. His recovery from back surgery has gotten to the point he can play in a game. What this…

  15. Eric Gordon could be held out the entire preseason

    Oct 21, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon was limited in training camp with soreness in his knee which has given him problems for over a year. He was supposed to return for preseason, but that hasn’t happened yet. And now coach Monty Williams is talking about him missing the entire preseason. From the Times-Picayune: But Williams said Sunday that Gordon could miss the final…

  16. Video: James Harden and Tony Parker surprise kids at a pickup game

    Oct 21, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    James Harden

    So that’s pretty cool. You have to wonder if players ever get tired of it, if they’re numb to the adoration and excitement caused by just their presence. Choosing Harden and Parker for this, two of the more understated, if not humble, stars in the game provides a good background for it. And the dunks…

  17. Vince Carter wants to be the new Jet in Dallas

    Oct 21, 2012, 4:31 PM EDT

    BASKET-ESP-NBA-BARCELONA-DALLAS

    Vince Carter, Sixth Man of the Year? No, I don’t see it either. But part of the Mavericks’ success the past few years — part of their championship — is Jason Terry coming off the bench and changing the dynamic of the game. Putting up points, creating shots, draining threes and changing the flow of…

  18. Video: Jeff Green is still athletic, and is developing that Celtics attitude

    Oct 21, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    This is not bad for a guy who’s coming back from heart surgery. The block is exceptional, and nasty. But the attitude that comes with it is quintessential Celtics. Green seems to be embracing this team’s attitude. Gone is the doe-eyed youngster who seemed intimidated by the Celtics’ veterans two-years ago, replaced with a man…

  19. Corey Maggette to have precautionary MRI

    Oct 21, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette

    The Detroit Free Press reports that Pistons F Corey Maggette will have an MRI on his calf this week due to a strain he suffered against the Heat the other night.

    New York Knicks Media Day Basketball

    This is not an ideal start to the season in Manhattan. Amar’e Stoudemire will miss the Knicks regular season opener against the Nets, likely followed by another game or two, as he recovers from a minor knee problem. Al Iannazzone, who covers the Knicks for Newsday, broke the story. Amare Stoudemire went home this morning…
