  1. Ginobili suffers mild ankle sprain in pick-up game

    Oct 13, 2011, 11:16 AM EST

    Manu Ginobili

    In the off chance that David Stern and Billy Hunter stop acting like fools next week, this could be relevant. But it probably won’t matter. Manu Ginobili has suffered a mild ankle sprain while training in Argentina, reports the News-Express Spurs Blog (and Project Spurs). The injury, which is not considered serious, apparently occurred when…

  2. David Stern could learn a thing or two from Kings fans

    Oct 13, 2011, 10:20 AM EST

    *Jul 24 - 00:05*

    I’d say I’m surprised but I’m not. Tuesday at about mid-day I saw my first indications that something was brewing in Sacramento – a seemingly innocuous tweet from Sacramento Kings fan Amy Hyden (@sacgirl88) to G/F Donte’ Greene about setting up an exhibition game: @dontegreeneCOS hey Donte, Is there any way you can set up…

  3. Dallas Mavericks to get rings after all. Old guys rejoice.

    Oct 13, 2011, 9:45 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisl

    The Dallas Mavericks are going to get their rings on opening night after all. Whenever that is. Remember in the aftermath of the Mavericks championship owner Mark Cuban was talking about doing something different, not just giving his players championship rings. That was too old school for Cuban. Except Cuban has an old-school team, so…

  4. Italian team asks President Obama to help recruit Kobe

    Oct 13, 2011, 9:10 AM EST

    kobe-obama-420

    Claudio Sabatini, the owner of Italian league club Virtus Bologna, is both a media whore and desperate. He has tried desperately to land Kobe Bryant and gone public with it to get attention every step of the way. Now, with a $2 million offer for one game out there, Sabatini found a way to come…

  5. Video: Marion, Love, Chandler turn lock out into locked in

    Oct 13, 2011, 8:40 AM EST

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    At least we can laugh about the lockout. Well, sort of, but this video from the folks at Funny or Die will make you laugh. The premise is simply that Kevin Love, Shawn Marion and Tyson Chandler misunderstand the lockout and head to a junior high “lock in” night at the gym. I’d rather be…

  6. Tiger Woods ready for the lockout to end, says Celtics are old

    Oct 13, 2011, 8:02 AM EST

    tiger-woods

    Tiger Woods is back on the golf course this weekend… so of course somebody at media day asked him about the NBA lockout. Why wouldn’t you? What, you have something better to ask Woods about? Of course not. Woods is a Southern California guy, a Lakers fan. Which means job No. 1 is hate the…

  7. Pete Carroll tries to recruit LeBron to Seahawks. Jokingly.

    Oct 13, 2011, 1:07 AM EST

    lebron-james-seahawks

    The Seattle Seahawks passing game could use some help. They are 25th in the NFL at 205 passing yards per game and, while they complete a pretty average number of passes a contest, they average just 6.6 yards per passing attempt (26th in the league). They need a big-time receiver. Like maybe LeBron James. On Tuesday,…

  8. Video: Amar’e Stoudemire is still optimistic about the lockout

    Oct 12, 2011, 9:00 PM EST

    Fashion's Night Out At Macy's Herald Square

    Maybe we need more Amar’e in the room. (Get it? Because it sounds like amore, the Italian word for love? Like the song? You see what I did there?) Amar’e Stoudemire is making the promotional circuit, and as we told you this morning, brought up the prospect of a players’ league being formed if the…

  9. Mark Jackson says he’s on a mission from God

    Oct 12, 2011, 8:00 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Mark Jackson is in the same position as Jake and Elwood. He’s on a mission from “Gad.’  Jackson is a deeply spiritual man. In fact, he actually has done his fair share of preaching. Naw, for real. Which, regardless of your spiritual affiliation, is pretty awesome. Man’s got soul. So much soul, in fact, that…

  10. Ben Gordon is not the most optimistic guy in the world

    Oct 12, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    Hey, remember when Ben Gordon was an elite scorer in the league, making huge buckets against the Celtics in one of the most exciting playoff series in league history? Yeah, me neither. But his time in Detroit must have seriously put the grumpies in his soul, because his interview with the Detroit Free Press is…

  11. Stoudemire calls Turiaf, Diaw “smelliest players in the league”

    Oct 12, 2011, 5:41 PM EST

    Ronny Turiaf

    Columnist and ESPN host Dan Le Batard recently had Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire on his show, and at around the 3:00 mark of the interview, he asked Stoudemire who the smelliest players in the league are. Here’s Stoudemire’s response, courtesy of I am a GM and The Basketball Jones: Dan Le Batard: Kevin Love told…

  12. NBA owners, players to meet, bring in federal mediator Tuesday

    Oct 12, 2011, 5:21 PM EST

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    UPDATE 9:01 pm: The meeting date has been changed to Tuesday now and we know the mediator will be George Cohen. That wold be the same Cohen who was the mediator for the NFL in their dispute. He made no progress there — they met before their eventual lockout — and some around those talks…

  13. NBA owners to meet in New York next week

    Oct 12, 2011, 5:01 PM EST

    Mark Cuban, David Stern

    The NBA owners and players are barely talking — although they are getting a federal mediator — so the owners are going to talk amongst themselves. David Stern conducted a conference call with his labor relations committee this week and next week all the owners will gather together to talk lockout and revenue sharing, the…

  14. Carmelo Anthony defends his defense

    Oct 12, 2011, 3:59 PM EST

    Celtics' Pierce drives into defense of Knicks' Anthony during the first half of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Carmelo Anthony is not a good defensive player. That’s not just me talking, after ‘Melo was traded from Denver to New York Nuggets coach George Karl told TNT his team would be much better on defense now that they didn’t have to “handle what Carmelo gives you” on that end. Anthony took exception to that…

  15. On Aaron Brooks and life after Steve Nash in Phoenix

    Oct 12, 2011, 3:33 PM EST

    Aaron Brooks

    Steve Nash has defined the Phoenix Suns franchise since the summer of 2004, but every passing day brings the Suns that much closer to parting with their only remaining star. Joe Johnson, Shawn Marion, and Amar’e Stoudemire have all come and gone, and the last great remnant of the Suns team that embarked on Seven…

  16. What the Bobcats should do when the lockout ends

    Oct 12, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    2011 NBA Draft

    This is the latest installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Up next is the Charlotte Bobcats. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads. Last season: Hope that four-game sweep in the playoffs was fun/worth it,…

  17. Did Carmelo Anthony call Rick Fox a Hall of Famer? Um…

    Oct 12, 2011, 2:10 PM EST

    The Haier Shooting Stars Competition

    I like Rick Fox. Smart, underrated role player on some very good teams — the Lakers recognized this and picked him up to go along side Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal. Great fit. But Fox was not a great player. Well, I think that and you think that. Apparently Carmelo sees things differently. ‘Melo was…

  18. Kevin Durant to host star-studded charity game in OKC

    Oct 12, 2011, 1:32 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, Michael Beasley

    The NBA player charity game circuit is coming to America’s heartland. Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant had talked about setting up a game in OKC and apparently he has pulled it off and it will become official on Wednesday, reports the Oklahoman. Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is making good on his promise…

  19. Video: Amar’e Stoudemire posterizes Blake Griffin poster

    Stoudemire_dunk2

    We told you that Amar’e Stoudemire was working his way around the ESPN campus talking lockout and pimping his new shoes yesterday. But that was not the best part. This video is, when Stoudemire plays some nerf ball against a Blake Griffin poster. (Via The Point Forward at Sports Illustrated)

  20. NBA owners play “ultimate game” poorly, so players won’t cave

    Oct 12, 2011, 12:52 PM EST

    derek Fisher

    I have been asked this question a number of times in the last 48 hours — why don’t the players just take the owners 50/50 offer and get back on the court? Because the players see the offer as patently unfair. You can argue all you want that if they took the owners last formal…
