  1. Kobe Bryant tells a story that sums up Kwame Brown

    Oct 7, 2011, 11:39 AM EST

    Kwame-Brown

    Kobe Bryant finally won his NBA MVP trophy during the 2007-08 season. But frankly he deserved it more the couple years before that. If you watched the post Shaq-trade Lakers, Kobe carried that team. Bynum was raw and learning, Lamar Odom was inconsistent (some things never change) and Kobe dragged a team that STARTED Kwame…

  2. Michael Jordan’s private plane is very… Michael Jordan

    michael_jordans_personalized_private_plane

    You are not going to mistake Michael Jordan’s toys for anyone else’s. Not his golf bag. And not his private plane, pictured below. (If you want to bask for a minute in the irony of an NBA owner who is claiming the current NBA financial system is really hurting his pocket book having a sweet…

    We know you woke up this morning saying to yourself, “whatever happened to Adam Morrison?” Of course you did. Well, he’s let his hair grow out and is getting ejected from games with his Serbian team. Below is the video of his ejection against German powerhouse Bayern Munich, complete with Morrison waiving his arms to…

  4. Agent asks: Why don’t NBA fans get some rollbacks?

    Oct 7, 2011, 9:48 AM EST

    nba_g_nbafans_275

    We are just a weekend away from seeing NBA regular season games canceled. Why? Because the two sides can’t decide how to divide up the fans’ money. The money fans pay in ticket prices. The money paid for overpriced beers and parking spots. The money sponsors pay to reach those fans. The money television networks…

  5. Report: Trail Blazers to restart GM search from square one

    At some point, the Portland Trail Blazers are going to need a general manager. And if that time is sooner rather than later, well, they are in trouble. More than four months after the Trail Blazers started their search for a new general manager after firing Rich Cho, after interviews with at least four candidates,…

  6. Former NBA player manager admits theft, tax evasion

    It’s a challenge for NBA players — many come from backgrounds where they didn’t have money growing up, then suddenly at age 19 or so they have millions. They don’t always handle it well. The smart ones bring in a financial manager. But what if that person is a crook? The Washington Examiner tells the…

  7. Celtics legend Bill Russell joins lawsuit against the NCAA

    Oct 6, 2011, 10:00 PM EST

    President Obama Honors Medal Of Freedom Recipients

    Of all the areas from which the NCAA is under attack, a lawsuit accusing the organization from benefiting from the likenesses and images of players without compensating them is maybe the most dangerous one. And the suit is spot on. You can buy historic videos of NCAA hoops games, but the players don’t ever see…

  8. Did both owners, players make their “best offer?” Probably not.

    Oct 6, 2011, 8:28 PM EST

    David Stern, Adam Silver

    Right now, you need to treat every rumor you hear about the NBA labor negotiations like you treat (or should treat) every rumor the week before the NBA trade deadline — assume it is someone trying to gain leverage. For example, when we all hear that player “X” is close to being traded then suddenly…

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    PBT is working its way through what every team in the NBA should do when the NBA lockout ends. See all the teams we’ve done so far here. Today, we talk Orlando Magic. Last season in Orlando: They had a solid regular season — 52 wins, which was fourth best in the Eastern Conference. But…

  11. How good can the Memphis Grizzlies become?

    Oct 6, 2011, 4:58 PM EST

    San Antionio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    The Memphis Grizzlies provided one of the 2011 playoffs’ most endearing storylines for reasons that went beyond a mere appreciation for the underdog. They won their first-round series against the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs, sure, but it was the way the Grizzlies won — and the personnel with which they did so — that gave…

  12. Rondo says Chicago has the most “obnoxious” fans

    Oct 6, 2011, 4:40 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Chicago Bulls

    Can you have bulletin board material during a lockout? If so, Rajon Rondo gave some to the Bulls and the Chicago fans. Not that they need it — Boston and Chicago have a great rivalry already. One that was rekindled by the knock-down, drag-out seven game series from the first round of the 2009 playoffs.…

  13. Video: Behind the scenes at Derrick Rose matador commercial

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Thursday Adidas released some behind the scenes footage from Derrick Rose‘s new “matador” commercial for his adiZero Rose 2 — which coincidentally went on sale on Thursday. Okay, not so coincidentally. We showed you the original ad (which is pretty sweet and filmed in Madrid) so we thought “why not roll the behind the scenes…

    NHL Season Cancelled

    This much is clear — the NBA and its players union are much closer to a deal today than they were a week ago. Tuesday’s intense negotiations may have ended with threats of the first weeks of the season being canceled, but it also saw real progress. First, they are finally talking about the real…

  15. Insight into the complex, fascinating mind of Jerry West

    Oct 6, 2011, 2:08 PM EST

    Jerry West

    If you’re looking for something to read that gives you a basketball fix during the NBA lockout, I would recommend heading to your local bookstore (if it’s still open) and picking up a copy of Roland Lazenby’s Jerry West biography. It’s simply a fantastic portrait. (West has his autobiography coming out soon, which should be…

  16. Reggie Miller’s greatest moments recreated in China

    reggie-miller

    Reggie Miller is big in China. Apparently. There is a Web site called ChinaPacers.com where they have a video recreating Miller’s legendary Pacer moments on an outdoor court in China with guys who might not be able to touch the net when they jump. And yet, it is brilliant. YouTubey brilliant. I just wish they…

  17. Insurance will keep Bogut from playing in Australia after all

    Oct 6, 2011, 1:13 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bogut wanted to play in Australia during the lockout. He even tweeted it was almost a reality. He could sharpen his game coming off an injury and bring attention to a hoops league in a nation where rugby, Australian Rules Football, soccer, cricket and other sports are thought of well before hoops. (Well, Australian Rules…

    Sadly, this isn’t shocking or unlikely. Isaiah “J.R.” Rider has been picked up on a parole violation and remains behind bars in Arizona, TMZ reports. He was on probation for a 2010 violation where he tried to flee from police who wanted to pull him over for erratic driving. But it could also have been…

    You’re just walking down the street minding your own business, thinking about if you’d fire Hank Williams Jr. or maybe checking twitter out on your phone, then… BAM, John Wall drops a crossover on you. It happens. The Wizards’ point guard was speaking with ESPN’s high school site and talked about what could happen if…

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    David Stern set the deadline — if there is no handshake deal between NBA owners and players by Monday, the league will cancel the first two weeks of the regular season. The two sides are playing a game of chicken. But if the season is to be saved, it has to happen Sunday. After talks…
