  1. If you want to win in the NBA, forget point guards. Go big.

    Sep 5, 2011, 6:12 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    During the summer, we get a buzz watching John Wall say he is back and slash through guys at the Goodman league. Or watching Brandon Jennings cut it up at the Drew League. We relate to the normal sized guy who can find a way to get it done in the NBA. We love Derrick…

  2. Nate Robinson not headed to the NFL, Europe maybe

    Sep 5, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Three

    Nate Robinson liked to do a little flirting with the NFL. Which was cute, but he is due $4 million next season as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder and if you think playing some hoops in Europe puts that at risk imagine what getting trying to tackle Chris Johnson will do. So, the…

  3. Winderman: Players keep playing, which is a bad lockout sign

    Sep 5, 2011, 1:57 PM EST

    Goodman Drew Harden Durant

    We already have a complete 2011-12 schedule, because how, otherwise, could the NBA prove to the National Labor Relations Board that it is bargaining in good faith amid the lockout? To that end, we also have a complete preseason schedule, because part of the process means tormenting fans in Wichita, Sioux Falls, Fargo and Raleigh…

  4. Today’s overseas roundup: Corey Maggette close to Greek trip

    Sep 5, 2011, 12:41 PM EST

    Corey Maggette

    There are so many NBA players both talking to and signing with overseas teams that we collect them in an occasional roundup. We bring you the Labor Day edition, because nothing says Labor Day like barbeque and bullet points. • Corey Maggette has been flirting with Greek team PAOK for a while, but things are…

  5. NBA advertisers looking for other places to spend $1 billion

    Sep 5, 2011, 11:29 AM EST

    NBA: NOV 16 Pistons v Lakers

    With it looking more and more like NBA games are going to be lost, the advertisers that normally fill in the commercials during NBA broadcasts are starting to look around for other places to spend their money. The concern is that once the league comes back, all those advertising dollars will not. The NBA lockout…

  6. Picture you should see: Ron Artest preparing for “Dancing”

    Sep 5, 2011, 10:35 AM EST

    ronartestballet

    We bring this picture to you of Ron Artest — soon to be Metta World Peace, but we’re not there yet — preparing for his stint on Dancing With The Stars. It’s via The Lakers Nation twitter account. We bring it to you without comment because: 1) I of the white man’s overbite dancing style…

  7. Goodman League vs. Indy Pro-Am game on for Sept. 24

    Sep 5, 2011, 9:58 AM EST

    Kevin Durant

    The Goodman League will take on all comers. Well, except the Drew League again. But all other comers. Just days after agreeing to a game against the Rucker Park league, the Goodman League has agreed to a deal to take on the Indianapolis Pro-Am, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Chris Palmer. Indy is supposed…

  8. Video: Watch Justin Bieber cross Steve Nash

    Sep 5, 2011, 9:43 AM EST

    Justin Bieber

    Justin Bieber and Steve Nash — two guys with cult-like followings that think their hero can do no wrong. Two guys with great hair. Two guys matched up on the basketball court, where Bieber — he of the All-Star Weekend celebrity game — crosses Nash and gets to the hole. Bur really, the best part…

  9. Final eight teams set in FIBA Americas Olympic qualifier

    Sep 5, 2011, 8:03 AM EST

    Argentina's Ginobili goes to the basket under pressure from Panama's Pomare, Lloreda and Warren during the FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Mar del Plata

    We are through the group stage of the FIBA Americas tournament. Long live the Group Stage, part two. After the first round of games in Argentina, two teams have been eliminated — Cuba and Paraguay. So we are down to eight and the second round of group play — because who doesn’t love more group…

  10. EuroBasket Day 5: Yup, Spain is the team to beat

    Sep 5, 2011, 12:10 AM EST

    Pau Gasol EuroBasket

    Welcome to our daily update. Things are starting to really shake out in the group play of EuroBasket, and with that we are really starting to see who the contenders for the Olympic berths are. What we are saying is, we would like you to meet Spain, Russia and Serbia. Spain 91, Lithuania 79: Spain…

  11. Miami to make a run at Nene in free agency… yes, it’s a longshot

    Sep 4, 2011, 9:45 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Nene has been very clear that as the most coveted free agent in this upcoming class — whenever we get into a condensed, hurried free agency period post lockout — money is not going to be his deciding factor. He wants to win. It’s not about the money. I’m sure he means it. That said,…

  12. Is Mickael Pietrus on the trading block? He seems to think he is.

    Sep 4, 2011, 7:30 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Remember when Mickael Pietrus was a pivotal member of a Finals team? That wasn’t that long ago, just 2009. It was his defensive length and hot shooting that helped the Magic win the East that season. Then he was downgraded for other options by the Magic, including Vince Carter (that certainly worked out well) before…

  13. Boston Mayor wants the All-Star Game back in Beantown

    Sep 4, 2011, 5:00 PM EST

    TD Boston Garden

    Count this among the things I didn’t know, but should have. The Celtics haven’t hosted an All-Star Game since 1964. That’s pretty crazy considering it’s been NBA Town since the inception of the league. Apparently there’s been a longstanding dispute with the co-tenant Bruins that have prevented the game from coming to town. Teams have…

  14. Chris Bosh says Heat players will begin offseason work “soon”

    Sep 4, 2011, 2:30 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Chris Bosh probably got it a little raw last season. Before you freak out, bear in mind that I started trashing Bosh and his decision making back when he was at Lakers games in the playoffs before signing with the Heat, soaking up all the attention. I argued that Amar’e Stoudemire was a more valuable…

  15. Juan Carlos Navarro says he could have stayed in the NBA, it was just that the time was wrong

    Sep 4, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    Spain's basketball players Navarro, Gasol, Calderon and Rubio attend the presentation of their team for the Eurobasket at Madrid's Arena

    Juan Carlos Navarro’s stint in the NBA was short and unimpressive. He was a bench role player on a miserable squad that watched his best friend on the team, Pau Gasol, be traded to L.A., stranding him there in 2008. He couldn’t find time on the floor or a suitable role. He still showed flashes…

  16. Brandon Jennings thinks Stephen Jackson will be the difference for the Bucks

    Sep 4, 2011, 9:27 AM EST

    Stephen Jackson, Mark Ayotte

    Stephen Jackson never seemed too thrilled about being sent to Milwaukee. He had embraced the Bobcats, had taken them to the playoffs for the first time, and was comfortable, even if the fit wasn’t perfect. So it took him a while to make it to the Bucks. But the fact remains that even as an…

  17. EuroBasket Day 4 Roundup: Greece was not the word

    Sep 4, 2011, 2:09 AM EST

    Greece Macedonia

    We have our first real upset of EuroBasket, just as things are starting to get interesting (Lithuania vs. Spain and Germany vs. Serbia Sunday, for example). Macedonia 72, Greece 58: This is a pretty big upset — Macedonia had never won a EuroBasket game before this tournament, while in recent years Greece has been one…

  18. A photo of Clyde Drexler you should really see

    Sep 3, 2011, 11:20 PM EST

    DREX

    On a day defined by the pageantry of universities engaged in fierce competition and the colorful imagery of teams like Oregon and Georgia showing off new post-space-age uniforms, we thought we’d bring you an image from the past of a game we won’t be seeing possibly until after college football is over. Michael Jordan won…

  19. Blazers to interview Spurs’ Lindsay, Mullin for GM gig

    Sep 3, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    Chris Mullin

    The Blazers are starting to get together a list of candidates for the vacant GM job. From Yahoo! Sports: Portland has also received permission to interview Spurs assistant GM Dennis Lindsey, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Lindsey has spoken to Blazers officials by phone, but no formal face-to-face has yet been scheduled, a source said.…

  20. Garnett makes reference to the end of his career on the near horizon

    Sep 3, 2011, 4:30 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    Kevin Garnett is doing the media rounds this week, talking about everything from how he almost joined the Lakers, to his future in basketball. In an interview with the Boston Globe, Garnett gave the token lines about how the union is “really united” this time, said he wanted to retire with the Celtics, and then…
