    Aug 24, 2012, 3:24 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    No rookies were harmed in the making of this video. Just a little fun from the cameras where there for the day of the rookie photo shoot. And while Boston rookie Fab Melo may be a rookie he is still 7’0″, 255. And that is often too much for a folding chair. Notice how…

  2. What did Joe Johnson do when he got traded? Traded himself on NBA2K.

    Aug 24, 2012, 2:22 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    How did Joe Johnson learn he was traded from the Hawks to the Nets? He got a phone call that morning from the GMs involved that it was likely to go down later in that day, the new Nets wingman told Zach Lowe of Sports Illustrated. But that wasn’t the best part of the story…

  3. In honor of Reggie Miller’s birthday, watch him crush the Knicks

    Aug 24, 2012, 1:49 PM EDT


    Happy birthday to Reggie Miller, the soon-to-be Hall of Famer turns 47 on Friday. He remains one of the greatest sharpshooters the game has ever seen. One of the first players to ever really take advantage of how the three-point line was changing the game. And he was just fun to watch. That’s how I…

  4. Carmelo sees himself as a wing, highlights Knicks challenge

    Aug 24, 2012, 1:40 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    The challenge is pretty clear in New York — when both Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire have played in a game the past two seasons, the Knicks are 31-40. The two stars have not meshed. Which brings us to ‘Melo speaking with Ian Begley of Friday and talking about the Knicks and his Olympic…

  5. Baron Davis to remain with Knicks “in some capacity”

    Aug 24, 2012, 12:55 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Three

    What Baron Davis wants to do is get back on the court and play again. But at age 33 he tore his ACL and MCL, which is hard to come back from for anyone. And let’s be honest here, Davis’ history of diligently sticking with his injury rehab is not exactly stellar. Davis is working…

  6. Lopez, Johnson think the Nets can win a ring. This year.

    Aug 24, 2012, 12:24 PM EDT

    Deron Williams, Joe Johnson

    I’m going to mock them a little for it. Some of you are going to mock them a lot for it in the comments and on twitter. It’s clear why. But ask yourself this — do you want a key player on a good team to say they can’t win a ring this year? Do…

  7. Kings make obvious official: team not moving to Virginia Beach

    Aug 24, 2012, 11:39 AM EDT

    Phil, George, Gavin Maloof

    The second this “Kings to Virginia Beach” rumor started to gain traction online, it was clearly not realistic — there are no designs for an arena in Virginia, no financing in place, not one approval and nobody had really talked to the league about it. This was the backers of the idea of an arena…

  8. Rose gets back on court soon, Noah not playing 5-on-5. Yet.

    Aug 24, 2012, 11:16 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

    Time for a little Chicago Bulls injury update, starring Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah. Both of whom missed out on an all expenses paid trip to London this summer because they were banged up.

  9. Heat have a few options to round out roster with big man

    Aug 24, 2012, 10:25 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Miami has 13 guys under guaranteed contract for next season and likely will add one more big to the roster before the season starts, giving them a little depth at center. Now, this guy will not play a lot — Miami is going to go small with Chris Bosh at the five for this season…

  10. Video: USA’s Ira Brown throws down at world 3-on-3 championships

    Aug 24, 2012, 9:51 AM EDT


    You remember that whole “FIBA really wants to add 3-on-3 basketball” to the Olympics thing we were talking about as London was winding down? Well, the FIBA 3×3 World Championships are going on in Greece as you read this, 24 teams competing for this “coveted” title. The USA has a team there. Team USA is…

  11. Quote of the Day: Wade isn’t sure LeBron catches Jordan

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:41 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    I don’t know if (James) has the ability to surpass (Jordan) or not. That’s yet to be seen. My version as LeBron being on par with Michael is this: They’re both on the golf course. Michael’s on the 18th hole. LeBron is somewhere on like the fourth hole. He’s got a long way to go, but…

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns, Game 4

    Things did not really end all that great for Robin Lopez in Phoenix. He was injured. Marcin Gortat took his job. He wasn’t a natural fit with the Suns up-tempo style. He sounds a lot more comfortable in New Orleans, at least from what he told the Associated Press. “With the exception of Phoenix, in…

  13. Wade says he felt bad for Derrick Rose, wanted to play Bulls

    Aug 24, 2012, 1:15 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    NBA players — professional athletes in general — do not want to see an opponent go down injured. Especially one of the other team’s best players. There but for the grace of God and all. So when Dwyane Wade was on Chicago Tribune Live on Comcast SportsNet Chicago and was asked about what happened to…

  14. Winderman: CBA rules grind NBA player movement to a halt

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Donte Greene to the Nets, Martell Webster to the Wizards . . . If it seems like the NBA is in a bit of a personnel limbo, it is because, well, it is. For as much as the floodgates open with the July start of free agency, and for as much as things can change…

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    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 James T. Kirk loves green women. • The Miami Heat need some depth…

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    With it being the offseason and all, it had been a while since Tiffany and I hung out, and she really missed me. I think it’s pretty obvious. So we pulled together a little summer PBT Extra. We talk about the Heat getting better, the Lakers locker room, the Nets and Knicks, and what is…

    Russians Go To The Polls In Presidential Election
