  1. Charles Oakley thinks the Magic should have put Dwight Howard “in time-out”

    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. Ownership and management have no loyalty towards the player, and in CBA disputes, well, you know who’s on who’s side. So the players speak up for any player that goes through something difficult. Except when…

  2. Wade says the Heat are still evolving, which sounds like a horror flick concept

    Aug 26, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Chris Bosh wound up a center, LeBron James turned into a power-point-center, Shane Battier was power forward and Dwane Wade played small forward. The Heat went through a series of radical and unpredictable changes last season on account of both emerging trends in their opponents’ lineups and the injury to Chris Bosh. Up was down,…

  3. Video: Paul George did what, now?

    Aug 25, 2012, 9:41 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    So that’s Paul George of the Indiana Pacers going through-the-legs-360. Which is nice, for all of us, really. I’d also like to point out LeBron who was also on this trip to Shanghai going nuts for George. This is today’s reminder that all of those rivalries you think are significant and meaningful are really the…

  4. James Anderson is apparently going to be a Hawk

    Aug 25, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    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…

  5. Jason Kidd wants to be like Steve Nash for Amar’e Stoudemire

    Aug 25, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin defends Dallas Mavericks point guard Jason Kidd in the second half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Jason Kidd has shifted his role in recent seasons. In Dallas, he went from the engine that ran the machine to a spot-up shooter who managed the office. It was a subtle but important shift and kept him capable as he began to get older. In New York, he’s expected to do much of the…

  6. Derrick Favors wants the minutes and he wants them now

    Aug 25, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    derrick-favors-jazz

    Derrick Favors isn’t pushy. He’s not unreasonable. He doesn’t mind coming off the bench. But he wants his minutes, and he wants them now. In an interview with the Deseret News, the Jazz forward made it pretty clear he’s ready to have the training wheels taken off. “I want to play more than what I…

  7. Lou Amundson considering offer from overseas

    Aug 25, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Louis Amundson

    Lou Amundson is a blue-collar, hard working player who doesn’t have any exceptional skills but can fill in down low in a pinch, do his job, and always give consistent effort, which is harder to find in the NBA than you’d think. He’s a free agent and hasn’t gotten the deal he’s looking for yet.…

  8. Blake Griffin says he’s back at 100 percent

    Aug 25, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    When Blake Griffin went down with a knee injury, his second serious knee injury of his career, during Team USA practice, the jokes were pretty predictable. I’m pretty sure “Clippers Curse” was trending in parts of the world. There’s a certain expectation that whatever can go wrong will go wrong for “the other L.A. team.”…

  9. Video: Team USA Blooper reel, starring millionaire superstars acting the fool

    Aug 25, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    File photo of U.S. basketball Chairman Colangelo and the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team posing in Las Vegas

    I’m comforted by the fact that despite their earning of millions of dollars, playing in the most competitive form of the sport on the planet, and constantly being concerned with their brand, their business, and their empire… these guys are really, really goofy. Here’s a blooper reel from Team USA released, which has a handful…

  10. Friday night video: Wilt Chamberlain was unlike any other

    Aug 24, 2012, 10:00 PM EDT

    wilt_chamberlain_warriors_72866735

    Lots of talk the past couple weeks about Dwight Howard, his impact as a center on both ends of the floor and what he means to the Lakers. There is no doubt he is the best center in the game today. But no center could physically dominate his era like Wilt Chamberlain. And I mean…

  11. The Inbounds: Houston, We Have A Solution

    Aug 24, 2012, 5:54 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Maybe no team will have the kind of predicted-win variance from fans and experts this season than the Houston Rockets.…

  12. Chris Bosh says Lakers now best team “on paper”

    Aug 24, 2012, 4:45 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    Kevin Durant and James Harden tried to play down what the Lakers did during their appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. “Good for them,” was Harden’s comment. But don’t think the rest of the league didn’t take notice of what happened in Los Angeles. Chris Bosh, who tends to be a pretty frank interview,…

  13. Video: Folding chair 1, Fab Melo 0

    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 NBA.com 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…

  14. 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…

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

    Aug 24, 2012, 1:49 PM EDT

    reggie-miller

    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…

  16. 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 ESPNNewYork.com Friday and talking about the Knicks and his Olympic…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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. Derrick Rose is expected to start doing some light on the court work soon, according to Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated.…
