  1. Ricky Rubio update: Things progressing well. That is all.

    Aug 28, 2012, 1:02 PM EDT

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

    Minnesota could be a playoff team this year, maybe should be. They have Kevin Love in the middle as the anchor, and this summer they added some guys who potentially really lift the franchise in Brandon Roy and Andrei Kirilenko. But ultimately, Minnesota’s playoff chances come back to Ricky Rubio — the young Spanish center…

  2. Mike Miller back in the gym, gearing up for Heat season

    Aug 28, 2012, 12:34 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Last July, a lot of people expected the Miami Heat to amnesty Mike Miller. Despite his stellar shooting in Game 5 of the finals, his body had largely given out on him. It would be easier to list the body parts on Miller that were not injured. Hobbling would be a good way to describe…

  3. Rondo says he wants to be greatest Celtics point guard ever

    Aug 28, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    I like that Rajon Rondo is thinking big. Like “the Celtics are my team” big. Look what he said while in the Philippines (where he is helping at a Red Bull sponsored youth Clinic), as reported by (via SLAM). “I hope I can end my career as the greatest point guard in the history…

  4. Doug Collins wants Spencer Hawes to be like Pau Gasol

    Aug 28, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    Spencer Hawes, Brandon Bass

    Before back and Achilles injuries sidelined him, Spencer Hawes was the key to the Sixers offense last season. It wasn’t about the points, it was his passing that got the ball moving side-to-side against the defense and created good looks for others. Without him the offense stagnated some, he was not the same player upon…

  5. Harden says he wants to stay with Thunder. But want is not the issue.

    Aug 28, 2012, 10:29 AM EDT

    U.S. Olympic basketball player Harden watches during a training session ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester

    James Harden likes being a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. A lot. If we take nothing else away from the recent discussion of his contract status, that much should be clear. Of course, I want to live in a beachfront home in Malibu. Money often complicates what we want in life. Harden was interviewed…

  6. Dwight Howard will be back… someday. No timetable set.

    Aug 28, 2012, 9:58 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard speaks during a press conference at the Lakers practice facility in El Segundo, California

    When people — and by people we mean guys like Kevin Durant and Chris Bosh — say the Lakers have the best roster “on paper” they are saying it’s one thing to have talent on the roster and it’s another thing to make it work in games. But before we know if the Lakers can…

  7. Waiters says it was no big deal he was out of shape at Summer League

    Aug 28, 2012, 8:04 AM EDT

    Dion Waiters Summer League

    Dion Waiters did not impress at Summer League in Las Vegas. The No. 4 pick of the Cavaliers seemed a step slow, and going against guys who were fighting for jobs in the league (or overseas) he looked sluggish. Not ideal for the guy you drafted as an athletic slashing wing. More than one person…

  8. Report: Scalabrine may become Bulls assistant coach

    Aug 28, 2012, 3:16 AM EDT


    Brian Scalabrine is likely going to be back with Tom Thibodeau and the Bulls next season, just not as a player.

  9. Report: Kareem’s getting his statue

    Aug 27, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    Turns out it doesn’t matter how much of a pain you are if you’re the NBA’s All-Time leading scorer and one of the best players to ever step on the floor for the best franchise in basketball. The Los Angeles Times reports: The Lakers plan to unveil a statue of Hall of Fame center Kareem…

  10. DeShawn Stevenson is very DeShawn Stevenson at Orlando pro-am

    Aug 27, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Deshawn Stevenson

    Atlanta, this is what you can look forward to this season. These are some DeShawn Stevenson highlights from the Orlando pro-am. Some impressive plays, some smack talk, more the latter than the former. He will defend, he will act the fool, he will be fun and the fans will like him more than Larry Drew…

  11. Wizard’s Kevin Seraphin loves snakes more than you do

    Aug 27, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Kevin Seraphin snakes

    It is the offseason, so sometimes we catch things that might slip past us when we are focused on trivial details like games and standings and level of play. Although, not sure that photo would have slipped by us in any circumstance. That is Wizards soon to be third year player Kevin Seraphin, and those are…

  12. Derrick Rose talks about Chicago, his family, more

    Aug 27, 2012, 4:25 PM EDT

    76ers Bulls Basketball

    For a guy we’re not likely to see on the court until around the All-Star break, we are seeing a lot of Derrick Rose right now. Adidas has a special series on his recovery, which is pretty good. Aggrey Sam spoke with him for And now he sat down with the BET to talk…

  13. Deron Williams is hanging out with a preppy President Clinton

    Aug 27, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

    Deron Williams Bill Clinton

    We bring you this photo with little comment, you can have at it yourselves. We know that Deron Williams has hung out with and played some ball with President Barack Obama. We know he got a hug from Michelle Obama in London like the rest of Team USA after their first game. She’s kind of…

  14. Kobe settles case where fan said he was “assaulted” during game

    Aug 27, 2012, 2:56 PM EDT


    In 2005, insurance agent Bill Geeslin had the seats we all dream of for a game — courtside. It was Nov. 14 and his Memphis Grizzlies were playing (and would beat) Kobe Bryant and the Lakers. During the game Kobe chased and dove for a ball going out of bounds and he landed on Geeslin,…

  15. Kevin Garnett has made more in NBA salary than anyone. Ever.

    Aug 27, 2012, 1:53 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett calls out to his team mates as the Celtics take on the Milwaukee Bucks during the second half of a NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Kevin Garnett took a pay cut to come back to the Boston Celtics this year. It’s three years, $34 million. We’d all like a pay cut like that. But it was still enough — with his new contract Kevin Garnett passes Shaquille O’Neal as highest career earner in NBA history. WarriorsWorld tweeted out a new…

  16. Anthony Tolliver likes Atlanta, but do they like him?

    Aug 27, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    Anthony Tolliver

    You can tell right now Anthony Tolliver and his agent are trying hard to make it look like there is a ton of interest in the athletic but underwhelming four. It went so far as for reports a Greek team being interested in Tolliver to find its way into this blog. But Tolliver is interested…

  17. Who starts for Boston with Avery Bradley out?

    Aug 27, 2012, 12:52 PM EDT

    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’s A. Sherrod Blakely and asked who he…

  18. Smack talking Kobe called Lakers getting Dwight Howard

    Aug 27, 2012, 12:27 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant of the US looks on during an

    Kobe Bryant has said that he thought it was his job, as the veteran voice of Team USA heading into London, to loosen up the guys and get them to relax around each other. To Kobe, that means talking smack. To everyone. Get their juices flowing. What did he say? Well, you can be sure…

    Aug 27, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    Ah, the six weeks before training camps open is when optimism reigns. Every rookie looks like the rookie of the year, every injury is healing well, every player has worked on his game and will come back to camp playing his best. With that in mind, we bring you this note from (via the…

  20. Doug Collins wants to coach 4-5 more years, and Olympics

    Aug 27, 2012, 11:40 AM EDT

    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. The front-runner should be Gregg Popovich — but there are issues to be worked over with USA Basketball President Jerry Colangelo — and behind him the…
