  1. NBA player reactions to lockout all over twitter

    Oct 11, 2011, 8:44 AM EST

    twitter-whale

    Through the lockout, the NBA owners have been a monolith — all news from their side comes from David Stern or Adam Silver only. No owners or executives speak on the issue. The players, however, have a lot of voices. And many of those voices get expressed on twitter. Moments after Stern announced the cancellation…

  2. NBA owners take big risk playing fans for fools

    David Stern

    It would take some real fools to shut down their $4 billion a year business in the middle of the worst recession in generations because the more than $1 billion over six years they just got back from the workers was not good enough. However, the NBA owners are not fools. They think you are.…

    The Phoenix Suns held a press conference on Monday to introduce a new President, Brad Casper, who will lead business and non-basketball operations, as well as a new Chief Operating Officer, Jason Rowley. The media turnout for the event was larger than usual for something that technically isn’t basketball-related, likely due to the fact that…

    NBA owners and players met for more than seven hours on Monday, but that was not enough to save the start of the season. NBA Commissioner David Stern emerged from the talks, said he was sad then added the first two weeks of the NBA’s regular season have been canceled. Those games were set to…

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    You ever want to get in some run with Derrick Rose? Half of Chicago just said, “yes, and I can knock down more shots than Rasual Butler, I promise.” Rose is setting up a game for this weekend where some lucky Facebook fans of his are going to get invited in, reports CSNChicago.com. Here is…

    Udonis Haslem‘s twitter account is less than 24 years old, but he’s already using it to post major news and his opinions about the lockout: How ironic. Just got cleared by doctors for full workouts. Hardwood here I come. LET US PLAY #STANDUNITED A foot injury caused Haslem to miss most of the regular season and…

    Rudy Gay

    Rudy Gay, who was forced to sit on the sidelines and watch the Grizzlies’ incredible playoff run last season, recently sat down and talked with Grantland’s Jonathan Abrams about his recovery from the serious shoulder injury he suffered: What’s it like to get back on the court? I was excited and kind of had to crash.…

    NBA And Player's Association Meet To Negotiate CBA

    It’s progress. Not on the core issue that will bring us labor peace, but it’s progress. Right now, we’re not going to look askew at any sign of progress. The NBA owners and players are very close to a deal on a reduced mid-level exception going forward, reports David Aldridge at NBA.com. … a source…

  10. Caron Butler says he would consider playing for Heat

    Oct 10, 2011, 4:27 PM EST

    Caron Butler

    The real point of this story is not Caron Butler, but rather what Caron Butler could represent for the Miami Heat. In speaking with Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports, Butler — the free agent last with the Dallas Mavericks and coming off major knee surgery — said he would consider coming back to play for…

  11. NBA players launch “let us play” twitter campaign

    Oct 10, 2011, 3:08 PM EST

    NBA basketball

    Sunday night at the Drew League vs. Goodman League, the NBA players were on script — they said they just wanted to play. To a man. It was like a mantra repeated in both locker rooms. Monday, they took the campaign to twitter. NBA players starting with union president Derek Fisher and on through LeBron…

  12. Carmelo Anthony to host the next star-studded exhibition game in NYC

    Oct 10, 2011, 2:53 PM EST

    Tommy Hilfiger Womens - Backstage - Spring 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    Sunday’s South Florida All-Star Classic was the grandest of the NBA exhibitions to date, but it was nonetheless a single game in a series of similar contests. The summer of pro-am hoops has stretched into the fall of pro-am hoops, so much so that the idea for the next big exhibition game took mere moments to spawn…

  13. Colbert Report puts together ad backing NBA owners

    Oct 10, 2011, 2:01 PM EST

    Mark Cuban, David Stern

    Somebody needs to get the back of those poor, struggling NBA owners. It’s not me, but somebody should have their back. Fortunately, they have the Colbert Report. Some think the nightly Comedy Central show is satire, but the NBA owners will take the support anywhere they can get it. Hat tip to Eye on Basketball.

  14. Josh Howard interested in joining the Celtics

    Oct 10, 2011, 1:53 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The lack of a free agency period to date has all but eradicated the NBA’s rumor mill. Teams have undoubtedly discussed some of their potential targets in private, but with no structure set to actually enable player acquisition, those discussions lack grounding. Those general managers, owners, and coaches are floating ideas, ones that up to…

  15. South Florida All-Star Classic hosted by LeBron and Wade reminds us of what we’ll miss

    game20111009

    There have been plenty of recreational, pickup, and charity basketball games this summer that featured various groups of NBA stars showcasing their talents. But arguably none of them were as star-studded or as competitive as the South Florida All-Star Classic at Florida International University on Saturday, hosted by LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh.…

  16. Kobe wishes he could play with Carmelo Anthony

    Oct 10, 2011, 1:32 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Let the New York tabloid speculation begin. Actually, even they likely can’t come up with a reasonable scenario where Kobe Bryant becomes a Knick (not that tabloids make their money on being reasonable). But when asked who Kobe most wants to play with, he named the Knicks Carmelo Anthony (via Hoopsworld). “I would actually like…

  17. What has to happen Monday for an NBA labor deal? A lot.

    Oct 10, 2011, 12:07 PM EST

    Billy Hunter David Stern

    Monday in Manhattan, NBA league officials and union leaders will again sit down across the table from each other in a posh hotel and try to hash out a deal — or at least go through the motions of it. If they don’t reach a handshake agreement today the league will cancel the first couple…

  18. Video: Kevin Durant, John Wall show at Drew/Goodman rematch

    Oct 10, 2011, 10:50 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Jeff Green

    John Wall and Kevin Durant put on a show at the Pyramid at Long Beach State Sunday night. The Drew League got its revenge, winning 151-144… but really, not to many people cared about that. They came to see NBA stars do their thing. Here are the top 10 plays from the night, and frankly…

    Jianlian

    Yi Jianlian, the second best player to come to the NBA out of China and who played last season for the Washington Wizards, is headed home. Yi has signed a deal to play in China during the lockout. That in and of itself is not a shock — he’s a star over there and had…

    Chauncey hardy

    UPDATE 9:45 am: The good news is that a suspect has been arrested in the case. The bad news is it makes this even more senseless (if that is possible). Here is the report via Inside Hoops: Ionut Adrian Tanasoaia surrendered to police early Monday. He is accused of beating up Hardy in a bar…
