  1. Video: Ricky Rubio talks recovery from knee surgery

    Sep 18, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio shoots a free throw during their NBA game against Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s not the flashy adidas-sponsored Derrick Rose recovery videos, but it matters just as much to Timberwolves fans — this is the second video chronicling Ricky Rubio‘s recovery from a torn ACL and the surgery that followed. The video confirms other reports that Rubio is on or ahead of track on his comeback, but you…

  2. Report: Knicks, Celtics like Kenyon Martin, but money is issue

    Sep 18, 2012, 9:49 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The Knicks are still looking to add one more backup power forward to the roster, and a lot of Knicks fans look out at the rather barren landscape of available free agents and see Kenyon Martin as the best option. He probably is. And the Knicks fans are not alone in seeing it. But this…

  3. Video: Iman Shumpert reading poetry at NYC club

    Sep 18, 2012, 8:48 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    I post this not as someone mocking the Knicks’ Iman Shumpert for writing poetry, but rather because this is good, raw, emotional stuff. Shumpert’s aunt died of cancer and this was an open letter to her. It is heartfelt, it is powerful. Just remember this next time you want to paint NBA players as two-dimensional…

  4. Report: Pietrus has three NBA, one overseas teams after him

    Sep 18, 2012, 8:16 AM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    With training camps set to open in a couple weeks, we’re starting to see a little movement on the veteran players still out there unsigned right now. First Matt Barnes then Josh Harrellson got signed by teams. Now comes the report that Mickael Pietrus is in demand, via Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com. According to a…

  5. Magic fan sues team over marketing campaign using her likeness

    Sep 18, 2012, 3:22 AM EDT

    Image (1) new-orlando-magic-logo-thumb-250x179-13629.jpg for post 6226

    Right now if you were in Orlando you would be complaining about the humidity and rain all week, and you’d see a marketing campaign for the Magic that is everywhere — a photo of a young woman wearing a Dwight Howard jersey cheering. You would see her on busses. On street signs. Everywhere she is…

  6. Griffin “excited” about Clippers, says Lakers good on paper

    Sep 17, 2012, 11:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    There was a point at the start of the summer, way back in June, when you could picture the Clippers being better than the Lakers this season. The Lakers were what they were, the Clippers had young pieces like Blake Griffin that should be improving. Then Steve Nash and Dwight Howard happened. And now in…

  7. Monday And-1 links: Anderson Varejao and other camp notes

    Sep 17, 2012, 8:45 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like Stanford loves beating USC. • MaShon Brooks keeps talking about being Sixth Man…

  8. Report: Adam Morrison gets training camp invite to Portland

    Sep 17, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    adam morrison

    Is Adam Morrison on his way back to the NBA? It is not a sure thing, but he is on his way back to an NBA training camp apparently. The Portland Trail Blazers extended the former No. 3 overall pick of the Bobcats and poster child for the word bust an invitation to training camp,…

  9. Heat sign former Knick Harrellson to non-guaranteed deal

    Sep 17, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    Josh Harrellson tweeted a few weeks back that he was headed to Miami, hopefully for the entire season. What the former Knick big man was heading to in reality was a one-week tryout with the team. That tryout went well enough for him to get another one — this time at training camp. The Knicks…

  10. Beasley is working out with… Norm Nixon? Interesting.

    Sep 17, 2012, 5:38 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley has been getting ready for what he wants to be a redemption season. After struggling at every stop to live up to expectations or be efficient in his scoring, he is going to a Suns team that will need his points. Every player says they are working out hard right now to be…

  11. Eric Gordon says he plans to make Anthony Davis’ life easier

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Anthony Davis has had it pretty good — first an NCAA title at Kentucky where he was a fantastic player, then being the No. 1 overall pick of the Hornets, then getting to win a gold with Team USA in London where Kobe Bryant and LeBron James kind of took him under their wings. Now,…

  12. Metta World Peace boasts Lakers want to get 73 wins

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:15 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    For the Lakers fifth offensive option (if that), Metta World Peace isn’t afraid to do the talking. We told you how he said he didn’t think anybody could get past the Lakers. We’ve shown you his latest boast-filled video. We showed you him on Yo Gabba Gabba. He’s kind of everywhere right now. Then there…

  13. Video: Metta World Peace’s new video/movie is… very him

    Sep 17, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Ron Artest Parade

    First a word of warning: While this video is technically safe for work, if you are easily offended by things of a sexual nature you should not push play. Which is another way of saying you should not show this video to your grandmother. But if you are showing Metta World Peace music videos to…

  14. Two weeks to training camp… KG is still crazy after all these years

    Sep 17, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    The wait is almost over. We’re two weeks from training camp, and the start of the 2012-2013 NBA season. Basketball is almost back. As we get closer we’ll be bringing you reminders of why this game is awesome, what you’ve missed, and what to look forward to. Look, I don’t know how else to put it.…

  15. J.R. Smith thinks McGrady could help Knicks. That’s’ great.

    Sep 17, 2012, 1:43 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    You know who some of the worst judges of talent and team building skills are? No, stop it with the Bobcats jokes. It’s other players. They often see players for what they were not are, or have inflated (or undersized) understanding of a player based on what they have seen in person in a game…

  16. Shockingly, Dwyane Wade likes all the Heat’s new shooters

    Sep 17, 2012, 1:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    Dwyane Wade won a 2006 NBA title driving, getting fouled, and dishing out to hot shooters on the perimeter. Oh, and there was that Shaq guy and some interesting officiating, but Wade’s relentless attacking and smart playmaking were what got the Heat their first title. The 2012-13 Heat are not going back to that —…

  17. Video: Anthony Davis drops 40 at Kentucky alumni game

    Sep 17, 2012, 12:36 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    Well, Drake was impressed. And really, if he’s impressed aren’t we all impressed? Anthony Davis took his shiny new gold medal and his game back to the annual Kentucky alumni game, and we have the video courtesy City League Hoops and SLAM. Yes, they played about as much defense as one expects in summer game…

  18. NBA Season Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

    Sep 17, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Today begins PBT’s team-by-team season preview, going through all 30 squads. We are starting in the deep Atlantic Division that could well send four teams to the playoffs, and we will move West from there. First up, your Philadelphia 76ers. Last season: They were a slightly better than .500 team (35-31) that played great defense…

  19. Doc Rivers wants Celtics focused on Heat, not Lakers

    Sep 17, 2012, 11:25 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks - Game One

    Lakers vs. Celtics. It’s the NBA’s legendary rivalry. Bill Russell vs. Wilt Chamberlain. Magic vs. Bird. Kevin Garnett vs. Kobe Bryant. It is the balloons in the rafters of the Forum. It is the baby skyhook. It is not what Doc Rivers wants his Celtics focused on. With the Lakers pickups of Dwight Howard and…

  20. Two weeks to training camp… Manu Ginobili the modern superhero

    Sep 17, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

As we get closer we’ll be bringing you reminders of why this game is awesome, what you’ve missed, and what to look forward to. He shouldn’t be able to do it, honestly. Manu…
