  1. Jason Kidd says he’s got three more years in him

    Jul 17, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Jason Kidd is the ageless wonder. Just ask the Mavericks. Pretty much all the Mavericks made a dozen or so “Jason Kidd is old” jokes during the Finals. It was their go-to move for discussing the 38-year-old championship point guard. But instead of joking about it, we really should be impressed with the fact that…

  2. Nash headlines your daily European lockout working vacation update

    Jul 17, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    It’s a tough line to walk, believe it or not. Your favorite players leaving to play overseas is definitely news, it affects their health, their conditioning, and lets you know there’s something to keep an eye on, in terms of their production. But with so many players talking about going (pretty much everyone it seems…

  3. Not to put too fine a point on it, but this lockout could really doom the Magic

    Jul 16, 2011, 10:36 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The owners aren’t really cutting off their noses to spite their faces. It’s more of a self-provided lobotomy just to show the brain who’s boss. There are quite a few owners who have designated plans on a championship. And failing that, several of them are in pivotal moments for their franchise. A few wrong moves…

  4. Brian Shaw tees off on the Lakers over how his non-hiring went down

    Jul 16, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson, Brian Shaw

    Brian Shaw has a reason to gripe. He waited and waited for the chance to become the Lakers’ head coach after Phil Jackson retired. He sat through two near-retirements from Jackson. He coached the team when health problems prevented the Zen Master from being able to. He got to know the players, earned their respect…

  5. This Nellie to Minnesota thing may actually be happening. Ye Gods.

    Jul 16, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Minnesota Timberwolves

    If it takes two to tango, the unholy dance of David Kahn and Don Nelson together is halfway to the dance floor. After rumors popped up earlier this week of a potential meeting between the two for Nelson to take over as head coach following Kurt Rambis’ departure, Jerry Zgoda of the Minnesota Star-Tribune spoke…

  6. Report: Kobe Bryant was near deal with Besiktas in Turkey prior to match-fixing scandal

    Jul 16, 2011, 3:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    Hey, so that whole thing about Besiktas being in trouble for football match-fixing? Yeah, bad timing on that. Jonathan Givony from Draft Express reports that Besiktas was nearing a deal for Kobe Bryant for $450,000 a month. That’s a $250k increase over what Deron Williams is reportedly getting. Which makes sense, since Bryant is arguably…

  7. Stefanski hasn’t interviewed with Raptors… but he’s job-hunting

    Jul 16, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson Press Conference

    See, this is why the media is always so skeptical of what teams tell them. When Rod Thorn joined the Sixers, it was supposed to be happy-happy joy-joy in terms of his addition alongside Ed Stefanski. There wasn’t supposed to be any conflict, or issues. Stefanski was supposed to retain almost all of his power…

  8. Report: Turkish team which signed Deron Williams has its accounts frozen

    Jul 16, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Allright, so this one’s a little complicated. Let’s work the NBA angle and go backwards. Deron Williams signed with Besiktas. He even tweeted a photo of the signed contract and everything. But of course, that could get messy if the team can’t pay him. There have been concerns about overseas players betting paid in general…

  9. For all your obscure NBA trivia wall hanging needs, the Nick Gilbert fathead

    Jul 16, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    This is weird. I’m sorry, it is. It’s just really odd to see the 14-year-old son of an NBA owner who was considered to be the good luck charm for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2011 NBA Lottery as a FatHead. It’s just peculiar. But there it is. Right there. On the screen   All…

  10. James Jones says the owners “want it all”

    Jul 16, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Jones_James

    If you want a nice perspective on where this whole lockout thing stands, just go ask the reigning 3-point champion. I know that sounds odd. But James Jones in a recent interview with the AP put things nicely in perspective about the difference between the owners and the players. “They’re holding fast to what they…

  11. Deron Williams confirms he has signed in Turkey

    Jul 15, 2011, 11:12 PM EDT

    Deron-Williams

    It’s official, we saw it on twitter. Actually, it’s official because Deron Williams tweeted it and added a picture of his signature on a contract with Besiktas. Williams has signed a deal that will have him playing in Turkey this fall if the NBA lockout isn’t resolved. Well, maybe it will, but he has signed…

  12. Kings star Tyreke Evans says foot “100 percent”

    Jul 15, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    For much of last season plantar fasciitis slowed Tyreke Evans. He missed long stretches of games (19 at one point), and when he did play he was not exploding to the hole in the way that won him Rookie of the Year (he got to the rim two fewer times per game in his sophomore…

  13. Chad Buchanan could stick around as Blazers GM

    Jul 15, 2011, 7:45 PM EDT

    chad-buchanan-draftjpg-07c7e7765e3aaa04_display_image

    The Blazers are in the process of selecting a long-term general manager after their inexplicable firing of Rich Cho, and it’s apparent that they’ll search high and low for possible candidates who fit best with the organization’s sense of itself. Why Cho didn’t fit with that vision is beyond me, but all of our second…

  14. No. 1 pick Irving signs with Nike

    Jul 15, 2011, 7:14 PM EDT

    Irving stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    From Irving’s twitter feed: Feels good to officially be apart of @nikebasketball! Can’t wait to meet all the family I’m going to be apart of.Dreams really do come true! Irving was drafted #1 overall by the Cavaliers after having a stellar season at Duke, albeit one cut short by injury. Nike needs no introduction —…

  15. NBA players could flock to China, not Europe, if lockout goes on

    Jul 15, 2011, 6:52 PM EDT

    marbury_china

    With the lockout looming, many NBA players are considering playing in Europe as they wait for the new CBA to get hammered out. However, most European teams have limited finances, as well as a limit on how many U.S. players can be on a roster. However, some top agents think that there may be a…

  16. While supplies last: Decorate your walls with the life-size image of Dan Gilbert’s son!

    Jul 15, 2011, 6:17 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2011-07-15 at 5.05.03 PM

    The fact that Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert also happens to own Fathead, monopolizers of the vinyl wall decal industry, became NBA relevant last summer. As you may recall, Gilbert marked down the price of all LeBron James decals immediately after he chose to leave the Cavs, and worked in a Benedict Arnold zing in…

  17. Rick Carlisle could face league fine after radio slip

    Jul 15, 2011, 5:40 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    Team and league employees have embraced a veil of feigned ignorance during the lockout, as if a refusal to speak the names or sport the images of the players changes any bit of the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the current lockout. The league itself has imposed some hefty fines for any who violate the terms of…

  18. Kobe, Chris Paul part of star-studded Philippines exhibition

    Jul 15, 2011, 5:13 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant

    If you want to see NBA players on the court, you need to head to the Philippines. There may be a lockout stateside killing even Summer League but a couple big exhibition games have gotten approval in Manilla and will feature Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, and other NBA stars, according to the Philippines Star newspaper…

  19. Cuttino Mobley wants to play again in the NBA

    Jul 15, 2011, 4:35 PM EDT

    cuttino-mobley-clips

    Cuttino Mobley played 11 serviceable seasons in the NBA with four different teams, but after being traded to the Knicks in 2008 (in the deal that freed New York of the then-horrific contract of Zach Randolph), he was forced to retire due to medical concerns. Mobley has a serious heart ailment known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy,…

  20. Fredette sees similarities between himself, Tim Tebow

    Jul 15, 2011, 3:49 PM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    Is Jimmer Fredette the Tim Tebow of the NBA? Interesting question. Both were huge college stars with questions about how their games would translate to the next level. Both have a religious aspect to their popularity. Both are locked out right now. Tebow and Fredette also both are at the American Century Championships this weekend,…
