  1. 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…

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

    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.…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. Yi Jianlian signs deal to play in China during lockout

    Oct 10, 2011, 10:07 AM EST

    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…

  7. American pro hoops player in Europe murdered

    Oct 10, 2011, 9:45 AM EST

    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…

  8. Observations from Drew/Goodman payback game

    Oct 10, 2011, 9:10 AM EST

    John Wall

    It was fun. At the end of the day, that’s all you can really take away from the Pyramid on the Long Beach State campus and the Drew League vs. Goodman League rematch. John Wall and Kevin Durant and Nick Young had monster dunks. There were 195 points scored. Fun is all it should be.…

  9. Durant, players at Drew/Goodman say 53% is as low as they go

    Oct 10, 2011, 8:01 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Michael Beasley

    Sunday night in New York, NBA league and union officials negotiated for five hours over steak dinners. They talked a lot about “basketball related income” (or at least let’s hope they did). Three thousand miles way at a gym in Long Beach where the Drew League and Goodman League had their rematch, NBA players were…

  10. Psych! NBA, NBPA end meetings, will resume Monday

    Oct 10, 2011, 1:09 AM EST

    David Stern, Adam Silver

    The NBA and NBPA met for five-plus hours Sunday night  and all they have to show for it is another meeting. After being faced with the very real possibility of losing games in a cancellation announcement expected Monday, the two sides reportedly did not discuss BRI, the biggest issue between them, did not reach much…

  11. Doo-doo-doo… just waiting to see if the NBA loses games…

    Oct 9, 2011, 9:00 PM EST

    billy-hunter-david-stern

    The NBA and NBPA began meetings roughly two hours ago around 6PM EST. There’s no telling when they’ll break, or how things are going. They could leave the room in a huff any time, they could be in there overnight. Here’s what we do know. Glen Taylor, Jeanie Buss and Mo Evans joined the talks,…

  12. Report: It literally does not make financial sense to cancel games at this point

    Oct 9, 2011, 4:30 PM EST

    NBA And Player's Association Meet To Negotiate CBA

    With the players and owners meeting Sunday, there’s still little hope that a deal gets done. The perception is that they’re still extremely far apart. But here’s the thing. They’re really not. From Ken Berger of CBSSports.com this morning on Twitter: So here’s where we are: At their previous % of 43, owners would get…

  13. Report: NBA and players to meet for Hail Mary attempt at a season Sunday

    Oct 9, 2011, 1:49 PM EST

    billy-hunter-david-stern

    The players canceled a meeting Sunday and suspicions began ramping up that there would be a meeting Sunday with Monday’s deadline to avoid canceling regular season games looming. Sunday afternoon the New York Times reports those suspicions are becoming a reality. Top officials for the N.B.A. and the players union will meet Sunday night in…

  14. Allan Houston Rule could become the Gilbert Arenas Rule

    Oct 9, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Chicago Bulls

    Rashard Lewis is talked about as the poster child for bad contracts. But Lewis is a willing defender, can hit from the outside, and was very productive for most of his contract. So when talk of the so-called amnesty clause came up recently in NBA discussions, it wasn’t Lewis whose name was linked. It was…

  15. STAT is now “the Renaissance Man,” via Isiah Thomas?

    Oct 9, 2011, 9:32 AM EST

    Fashion's Night Out At Macy's Herald Square

    Amar’e Stoudemire once said that skipping college was the “hardest choice” he ever had to make. The guy reads Sun Tzu and political commentary, and visited Israel to explore his roots last year. So he’s kind of a cerebral guy. He’s making up for lost time, though, at FIU where he’s working out. He’s also…

  16. Players meet Saturday night, the line holds at 53 percent for BRI

    Oct 9, 2011, 2:05 AM EST

    Derek Fisher, Billy Hunter

    The NBPA was supposed to hold a regional meeting on Sunday and Monday, but late Saturday, word came from Yahoo! Sports that the Sunday meeting was canceled? Hope for a last-minute negotiating session? No, silly rabbit. Negotiating is for grown-ups! This is a finger-pointing contest now. Or another type of contest I won’t define. So…

  17. Eddy Curry pulls out of Miami charity game, Caron Butler to play

    Oct 8, 2011, 7:44 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    Eddy Curry had lost all that weight, reportedly 100 lbs. making him the Biggest Loser in the good way for the first time in his career. His coming out party was supposed to be the charity event in Miami alongside Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Mario Chalmers, members (or former in restricted free-agent Mario Chalmers’…

  18. Shannon Brown wants a bigger role and a contender. I would like a pony and a rocket ship.

    Oct 8, 2011, 4:30 PM EST

    Brown_Shannon

    Shannon Brown‘s going to be a free agent when the league comes back (you know, in 2014), and he’s going to have options. He’s still a young promising guard with two championship rings. His return to the Lakers makes sense from several perspectives, and a dozen more if you factor in how bad Steve Blake…

  19. Isiah Thomas quietly drops yet another hint about New York

    Oct 8, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    Isiah Thomas

    In a well-seasoned and very even piece from the New York Times on Isiah Thomas Saturday, the architect behind the big charity event this weekend starring LeBron James and Dwyane Wade (who the Times reports came to Isiah, not the other way around), Thomas primarily gave the same answers he always does about the Knicks.…

  20. What if Perry Jones waited until 2013 to enter the draft?

    Oct 8, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    2010 Jordan Brand Classic

    Baylor’s Perry Jones surprised everyone by pulling out of the draft last year. He was projected as a lottery pick, and had been ruled ineligible for the end of the season and postseason for improper benefits. (You know, really evil stuff like “a coach loaning his mother money so they wouldn’t lose their house,” stuff…
