    rasheed_wallace

    Rasheed Wallace, New York Knick. If he can make it there… well, let’s wait and see if he can make a difference there before we move on with the song. We’ve been telling you for days this was coming, now it’s official in the sense that Rasheed Wallace has agreed to a deal that he…

  2. Billy Hunter made $3 million last year, landed a 25 percent raise during lockout

    Sep 29, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Billy Hunter

    USA Today discovered a department of labor filing with regards to Billy Hunter’s salary with the NBPA last year, much of which was spent during the lockout of the NBPA by the owners in the labor dispute. Mr. Hunter did quite well for himself. National Basketball Players Association executive director Billy Hunter was paid $3…

  3. With John Wall out for a while, what is Plan B in Washington?

    Sep 29, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    John Wall, Wizards, Heat

    By Thanksgiving, maybe Washington can get back to what they pictured their offense would look like this season — John Wall running the break, Wall passing to Nene on the block, Wall driving and kicking out to Trevor Ariza, and of course Wall scoring a lot. But due to a stress fracture on his patella…

  4. Report: Dwight Howard targeting opening night for return

    Sep 29, 2012, 12:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Mitch Kupchak

    The Lakers have been completely silent about when Dwight Howard could return, refusing to give any timeline. Howard himself has been dead quiet on the subject, using the “I just want to get where I need to be” stuff. There has been talk of December, January, even Febuary for a possible return of the Lakers’…

  5. Chauncey Billups says he’ll be back before the first of the year

    Sep 29, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    Say what you want about Chauncey Billups, but do not question the man’s dedication. The Clippers guard immediately got word out after his devastating Achilles injury that he would not be retiring. He’s kept that word up the entire way. He’s vowed to return this season. And at media day for the Clippers Friday, Billups…

  6. That Jazz are like “Nah, that’s cool, Raja Bell. No need to come to training camp.”

    Sep 29, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Raja Bell

    Things have gone from bad to worse to apathetic in Salt Lake City as the Salt Lake Tribune reports that disgruntled guard Raja Bell has been asked by the Jazz not to show up next week when the team begins its preseason. The Jazz announced Friday that veteran guard Raja Bell won’t attend training camp…

  7. Sometimes Morey had no idea what Dikembe Mutombo was saying

    Sep 29, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dikembe Mutombo

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey did a Reddit AMA yesterday — think of it like an on-line Q&A — and he said some interesting things about Jeremy Lin and the Rockets long-term plans. But he also had a great answer to a Dikembe Mutombo question: When Dikembe Mutumbo would speak to you, would you sometimes just…

  8. Friday night video: Lebron James’ passing skills

    Sep 28, 2012, 10:52 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    LeBron James gets compared to Michael Jordan based on accomplishments. Jordan is the gold standard. But they are very different players. Jordan was a scorer like none other, but LeBron is more like Magic Johnson or Oscar Robertson — they can score but they are all-around playmakers. And LeBron has been a passer since high…

  9. Heat being cautious with Wade, he could miss season opener

    Sep 28, 2012, 8:45 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    It’s about June not October. With that in mind, Miami Heat coach Eric Spoelstra said again at media day Friday that the Heat were going to take it slow bringing back Dwyane Wade from his off-season knee surgery. Really slow. Tom Haberstroh of ESPN’s Heat Index spells it out. Spoelstra said he’ll be patient with…

  10. A very honest Daryl Morey talks Rockets, Lin, 2004 Pistons

    Sep 28, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    daryl-morey-rockets

    Daryl Morey is a geek. In a good way. And I’m not just saying that because he clearly knows his way around Reddit. Well, that is part of the reason. But clearly he does. Morey did an IAMA on Reddit Friday — which for the uninitiated is kind of an online Q&A — and in…

  11. Report: Rasheed Wallace will sign with Knicks or nobody

    Sep 28, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE 5:32 pm: Rasheed Wallace’s agent spoke with ESPNNewYork.com and said that other teams should not get their hopes up about Sheed — he will play for the Knicks or nobody. “That’s my understanding, based on his relationship with Coach (Mike) Woodson,” Strickland said by phone. A team source said Wallace has not yet signed…

  12. Quote of the day: KG lost Ray Allen’s phone number

    Sep 28, 2012, 5:26 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    “I don’t have Ray’s number anymore. I’m not trying to communicate with him.” — Kevin Garnett, talking to CSNNE.com at media day about former Celtic and now Heat sharpshooter Ray Allen.  Allen took less money to become part of the Miami Heat machine this season after being part of the championship “big three” era in…

  13. NBA Preview: Detroit Pistons

    Sep 28, 2012, 4:57 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe, D.J. White, DeSagana Diop

    Last season: They are a rebuilding team, so you don’t expect them to be good and the 25-41 record reflected that. But they flew under a lot of people’s radar because they are just not that interesting to watch. They are not good on offense, not good on defense, they have a couple nice players…

  14. Video: Kobe Bryant meets young fan on Ellen show

    Sep 28, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    US basketball player Kobe Bryant reacts

    What is with all the Lakers going on Ellen? Kobe Bryant was on the daytime talk show (which you watch, admit it) and got to meet a young fan, who won seats to an upcoming Lakers game by beating Kobe in a shootout. Enjoy the one and only time you get to see non-competitive Kobe.…

  15. Tony Parker’s eye injury behind him… but are the goggles?

    Sep 28, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    French guard Tony Parker is pictred duri

    What’s really important for the Spurs and their fans is that Tony Parker is fine. The eye injured by a flying bottle when Parker just happened to be in the same New York nightclub where the Drake/Chris Brown fight took place. That story must never get old. Parker played in the Olympics, so he was…

  16. Chris Bosh is just chillin’, getting ready to play center

    Sep 28, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    Chris Bosh is a pretty chill dude. Even at media day. After coming back sooner than he should have to be a key part of the Heat’s title run last season (he changed the Boston series and was key against Oklahoma City), he had to spend the rest of the summer getting over the abdominal…

  17. John Wall out two months with stress fracture in patella

    Sep 28, 2012, 1:22 PM EDT

    John Wall

    This is not good. In a lot of ways. Wizards point guard John Wall will be out about eight weeks with a stress fracture discovered in his patella (his kneecap), the team announced Friday. This means he is likely off the court until around Thanksgiving. The good news is it is something they discovered early,…

  18. Report: Gilbert Arenas considering playing in China

    Sep 28, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Gilbert Arenas wants another shot in the NBA. He’s working out at the Lakers facilities. His agent is calling GMs all over the place. Arenas is telling gas station managers his plans and that’s somehow becoming a rumor. The truth — there are no calls for him. Teams are not interested. They weigh the off-court…

  19. Warriors trying to tone down the rhetoric and just win, baby

    Sep 28, 2012, 12:07 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    Before last season the Warriors were brash. New owners, new coach right out of the broadcast booth where he was paid to be opinionated. They were trying to create a new aura around the long-struggling Warriors. The organization top to bottom talked openly about making the playoffs. Then they didn’t make the playoffs. Overpromise and…

  20. Report: ESPN considering Isiah Thomas as studio analyst

    Sep 28, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Isiah Thomas

    You may not remember this, but before Isiah Thomas was a bad college coach or was ruining the Knicks, he was a pretty mediocre television analyst back when this network broadcast NBA games. Now, ESPN/ABC may be bringing him back to the studio. At least they are thinking about it, reports the New York Post.…
