    Sep 30, 2011, 9:49 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets - Game Three

    The Italian League where Kobe Bryant is close to playing is not quite like the NBA in a lot of ways. One is the scheduling — as in it’s not set yet. The league is set to tip-off Oct. 9 but the schedule is still being reworked. For example, Venezia was just being added as…

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE #2, 9:56 am: And as fast as it came together, the deal may already be falling apart. Virtus Bologna had requested a special schedule during the 40 days the team was to have Kobe Bryant, but that has been rejected by the Italian league.

    Andre Iguodala

    Andre Iguodala has a lot of money to take care of — he’s already made $44 million in his career and he has about that much more coming to him the next three years (which is why the 76ers shop him around). Most players treat that much money like they’re in an episode of “Entourage”…

    limbo

    At this stage of the NBA labor talks, the players union faces the age-old limbo question: How low will you go? Let me explain. I know I keep repeating this but it can’t be stated often enough — the NBA labor fight is really about the split of basketball related income, or BRI (and how…

    Next time you’re positive you know who is going to get cut with the coming NBA amnesty clause, remember this: In 2005 it was nicknamed the Allan Houston clause after the wildly overpaid Knicks guard.

    Every NBA team has lofty aspirations by the time training camp rolls around, and it seems that even the league’s holding pattern couldn’t quell the preseason optimism of a particular spokesman for a landlocked team. The Phoenix Suns aren’t in the best of shape. They haven’t had a chance to make any significant additions to…

    This horse is dead, but we’re going to give it one more swift kick. Turns out, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal don’t really like each other. Who knew?
