    Avery Bradley, Nolan Smith

    Most of Boston’s starting five is set. Rajon Rondo is the point guard, Paul Pierce is the three, Brandon Bass at the four and Kevin Garnett is the five. Jason Terry is the first guy off the bench. Locked in. At the two… that’s more complex. Someone tweeted CSNNE.com’s A. Sherrod Blakely and asked who he…

    Doug Collins, Lou Williams

    Doug Collins name keeps coming up in the coaching search for Team USA, to replace Mike Krzyzewski. Collins name draws headlines but he is well behind in this race.

    Kevin Durant

    In an interview with the Washington Post, Kevin Durant takes the subtle leap forward from “all humble all the time” in interviews to “No, really, I’m exceptional at basketball.” Specifically, Durant says that he’s done with people talking about how eventually he’ll have the league in his grasp, that it’s here, it’s now. The future…

    Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunde

    Chris Bosh came out last week and said that “on paper” the Lakers had the best team, but they were going to have to prove they could live up to that billing, and that is an entirely different thing. Kevin Durant said basically the same thing. Durant spoke with Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports as…

    Aug 27, 2012, 1:45 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    At age 34 after 14 years in the league, Dirk Nowitzki hasn’t lost a step yet. If you thought he did last year, think about who was around him. He is still the guy who led the Mavericks to the title in 2011, and even last season he averaged 21.6 points and 6.8 rebounds per…

    Aug 26, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures to the crowd after winning in Toronto

    It takes a lot for players not to stick up for other players when it comes to disputes with management.

Except when…

This is today’s reminder that all of those rivalries you think are significant and meaningful are really the…

    James Anderson, Vince Carter, Garret Siler

    There were high hopes for James Anderson with the Spurs when he was drafted, but he just never could fit. Not everyone can mesh with the Spurs’ approach, and it’s hard to see whether it’s a talent or fit issue, though there are certainly considerable gaps in his game. And as a free agent, it…
