  1. Mark Cuban pitches in to help find Dallas rapist

    Jun 29, 2011, 3:42 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Sacramento Kings

    It’s an ugly story in amongst all the great things that happened in Dallas around the Mavericks winning their first NBA title — a woman who had gone to a Dallas bar to watch Game 6 was severely beaten and raped walking back to her car after the game. A reward fund was set up…

  2. NBA lockout tour of China being considered by agency

    Jun 29, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    NBA players are looking to do things during the lockout other than workout and improve their Halo 3 skills. Well, some of them are, some just want to get better at Halo. Which leads to this interesting note out of the Sports Business Journal (via SLAM): Armed with its star-studded NBA client list, Wasserman Media…

  3. Thunder, Nazr Mohammed agree to one-year extension

    Jun 29, 2011, 2:11 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Four

    Oklahoma City wants to keep its defensive-minded rotation at center in place. To that end, they have reached a one-year extension with Nazr Mohammed, according to the Oklahoman. Terms of the deal are not public, but as a 13-year veteran you can expect it to be in the $1.5 million to $2 million range. At…

  4. Kevin Durant, union rep for the Thunder, unaware of CBA expiration date

    Jun 29, 2011, 2:10 PM EDT

    kevin-durant-union

    Well, this is awkward. Kevin Durant is supposed to be the union representative for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Each team typically has a primary and an alternate player rep, and Durant is listed as the primary for his club on the NBAPA’s website. In this time of intense labor negotiations and with a lockout almost…

  5. Bosh finds way to disappoint with Vegas bachelor party

    Jun 29, 2011, 1:43 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Chris Bosh got a bad rap this season. People tried to paint him as a third wheel and a disappointment, but he had worked hard to find his groove with the Miami Heat (his scoring took a step back, but what did you really expect with those teammates?). When they needed him to step up…

  6. Is there any chance a lockout can be avoided? No, not really.

    Jun 29, 2011, 12:46 PM EDT

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    NBA commissioner and seemingly all-powerful deity David Stern said Tuesday after the owners meeting that there was still time to avoid an NBA lockout starting Friday. NBA players union executive director Billy Hunter said that if real progress was made during a last-ditch meeting between the owners and players Thursday, the owners might well postpone…

  7. Raptors pick Valanciunas dominates USA in under-19 game

    Jun 29, 2011, 12:08 PM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    Scouts who had seen Jonas Valanciunas raved about him as maybe the player with the highest ceiling in this draft (or at least the guy most likely to reach a high ceiling of all the Europeans in the draft). Fans? Not sold at all. Plenty read the name and thought the Raptors just drafted a…

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dirk Nowtizki in Legos. We told you yesterday about the Atlanta Hawks hosting a pre-lockout free agent mini-camp. The Lakers and Suns are doing the same thing. A look back at the last NBA season in graphic form. The draft may have put a number of veterans around the league on notice their jobs are…

  9. Just in time for a lockout, NBA to offer official champagne

    Jun 29, 2011, 10:39 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    When you are ready to celebrate the lockout starting, pop open a bottle of the new official NBA champagne! In what may be the worst timing ever for a league generally pretty good at that with marketing, the NBA has a new league-sanctioned champagne about to come out. Seriously. NBA champagne. Because there is a…

  10. Pistons GM Dumars has “sense of freedom” with new owner

    Jun 29, 2011, 10:11 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons Introduce John Kuester

    It became clear within the last year (maybe before that really, but let’s not go there now) that it was time to break up the Detroit Pistons and start to rebuild. The roster that at one point was an Eastern Conference Finals fixture had been caught by father time. But general manager Joe Dumars’ hands…

  11. Video: See Dirk Nowitzki celebrated in his home town

    Jun 29, 2011, 8:53 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki Wurzburg Germany

    Dirk Nowitzki still not particularly good at singing “We are the Champions” but nobody in Wurzburg, Germany, really cares. Wurzburg is Nowitzki’s home town and they threw a parade and party in his honor Tuesday for winning an NBA title. The crowd in the town square is totally into it, chanting MVP and singing along. Probably singing…

  12. Owners leave lockout steps in hands of committee

    Jun 29, 2011, 8:11 AM EDT

    NBA Labor Basketball

    So the owners didn’t vote Tuesday to authorize a lockout exactly… but it’s basically the same thing. Nobody from the NBA owners said much after Tuesday’s Board of Governor’s meeting in Dallas. (The Board of Governors is made up of NBA owners.) But that doesn’t mean there is a lot of room for hope. Here…

  13. Antoine Walker pleads guilty to felony check charges

    052810-NBA-Antoine-Walker-SW-PI_20100528203022_660_320

    The sad saga of former Boston Celtics forward and NBA All-Star forward Antoine Walker continued today, as Walker pled guilty to felony bad check charges. The Las Vegas Sun’s Conor Shine has the story (hat tip to CBS’ Eye on Basketball): Professional basketball’s Antoine Walker pleaded guilty to felony bad check charges Tuesday morning in…

  14. NBA owners, players to have one final pre-lockout meeting Thursday

    Jun 28, 2011, 9:23 PM EDT

    NBA Commissioner Stern speaks at the state of the league press conference during the NBA All-Star game weekend in Los Angeles

    The NBA owners and players have been formally meeting on the new Collective Bargaining Agreement with an offer on the table since the 2010 All-Star game in Dallas (and really they were talking before that, informally). After more than 16 months of talks, they are hundreds of millions of dollars apart and nowhere close to…

  15. Agent says Ron Artest is not playing in Finland

    Jun 28, 2011, 8:54 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    It was fun while it lasted. We were skeptical but with Ron Artest — er, Metta World Peace — anything seems possible. But Artest will not be playing in Finland, his agent told the Los Angeles Times. “I’m his agent and nothing has come across my desk,” Bauman said. “Although Ron has asked me to…

  16. Cavaliers assistant Jent leaves for Ohio State

    Jun 28, 2011, 8:31 PM EDT

    Chris Jent

    According to Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Cleveland Cavaliers assistant coach Chris Jent will be leaving the Cavaliers to take an assistant coaching job with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Jent, an OSU alum, was an assistant coach with the 76ers and Magic before joining the Cavaliers’ staff, and served as the Magic’s interim head…

  17. Felton “willing to sign a long-term deal” in Portland

    Jun 28, 2011, 6:43 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    One of the big trades on draft day involved the Portland Trail Blazers acquiring 27-year old point guard Raymond Felton, who had what was perhaps the best season of his career last season while playing for both the Knicks and the Nuggets after he was sent to Denver in the Carmelo Anthony trade. With veteran…

  18. New-look Bucks hoping to improve offensively

    Jun 28, 2011, 5:39 PM EDT

    Scott Skiles

    There’s no getting around it: the Bucks were a horrible offensive team last season. Milwaukee finished dead last in offensive efficiency, dead last in True Shooting and Effective Field Goal Percentage, dead last in plain old field goal percentage, and dead last in points per game. Unsurprisingly, the thing the Bucks are talking about right…

  19. NBA’s championship DVD out, if you can’t get enough Dirk

    Jun 28, 2011, 4:25 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    The official NBA Dallas Mavericks Championship DVD is out, with plenty of Dirk Nowitzki one-legged turnaround jumpers and Jason Terry showing off his ink. The fine folks at the NBA.com site released a trailer for the DVD. We thought we’d bring that to you rather than just give you another lockout story. Bookmark this post…

  20. Lockout veteran Grant Hill learned lessons from last one

    Jun 28, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    There are a handful of guys still around the NBA from the last time the league locked out, the 1998-99 season, which cost the league 32 games. Grant Hill of the Suns is one of those guys and told Marc Spears of Yahoo there are lessons to be learned. “You want to stay in shape.…
