  1. Oddsmakers betting all-or-nothing on NBA season

    Sep 30, 2011, 3:50 PM EST

    NHL Season Cancelled

    About a week ago, I would say that the conensus among people in and around the NBA was that there would ba a partial season. Somewhere between 50-60 games. (Today, hope is up with talks going on in New York.) But that’s not what the oddsmakers think. Bodog.com is letting you bet on the length…

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    Just a reminder out there for those of you traveling this weekend: The federal government severely frowns on you brining a gun on board an airplane.

  3. Other Italian league players plan special welcome for Kobe

    Sep 30, 2011, 2:10 PM EST

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    It looks more and more like the plans to get Kobe Bryant playing in Italy are dead in the water. Unless some incentive is found for other teams in the league to re-arrange their schedules to accommodate Virtus Bologna — so the team can get more games in larger venues while Bryant is there —…

  6. Are NBA’s biggest stars underpaid? Actually, yes.

    Sep 30, 2011, 12:10 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Is Kobe Bryant underpaid at $25 million next season? What about LeBron James at $16 million? Dirk Nowitzki at $19 million? Dwayne Wade at $15.5 million? Yes, actually they are. A bunch of teachers, firemen, nurses and other hardworking people just cursed my name. If I were on a stage tomatoes would come flying out…

  9. Report: Scheduling issues could kill Kobe deal in Italy

    Sep 30, 2011, 9:49 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets - Game Three

    The Italian League where Kobe Bryant is close to playing is not quite like the NBA in a lot of ways. One is the scheduling — as in it’s not set yet. The league is set to tip-off Oct. 9 but the schedule is still being reworked. For example, Venezia was just being added as…

  10. Kobe reaches deal to play in Italy. Almost. Team calls it “95 percent.”

    Sep 30, 2011, 9:21 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE #2, 9:56 am: And as fast as it came together, the deal may already be falling apart. Virtus Bologna had requested a special schedule during the 40 days the team was to have Kobe Bryant, but that has been rejected by the Italian league.

    NBA 2K12

    in just a few days NBA 2K12 hits the streets, and we are pumped. 2K11 just killed it, and this year you can play some of the best teams in NBA history. Of course, who is the best is up for debate. Which is the point of this commercial where Michael Jordan and others make…

    About half the NBA’s owners and a number of big-name NBA players have descended upon New York for what will be a crucial bargaining session Friday (and with any success through the weekend).

    Sep 29, 2011, 10:17 PM EST

    Andre Iguodala

    Andre Iguodala has a lot of money to take care of — he’s already made $44 million in his career and he has about that much more coming to him the next three years (which is why the 76ers shop him around). Most players treat that much money like they’re in an episode of “Entourage”…

    Sep 29, 2011, 7:58 PM EST

    limbo

    At this stage of the NBA labor talks, the players union faces the age-old limbo question: How low will you go? Let me explain. I know I keep repeating this but it can’t be stated often enough — the NBA labor fight is really about the split of basketball related income, or BRI (and how…

    Sep 29, 2011, 6:19 PM EST

    Rick Adelman

    It baffled a lot of folks when Rick Adleman, generally considered one of the better coaches in NBA history, took a head coaching job with the Timberwolves, who have been a fixer-upper franchise since Kevin Garnett‘s prime.

    Next time you’re positive you know who is going to get cut with the coming NBA amnesty clause, remember this: In 2005 it was nicknamed the Allan Houston clause after the wildly overpaid Knicks guard.

    Every NBA team has lofty aspirations by the time training camp rolls around, and it seems that even the league’s holding pattern couldn’t quell the preseason optimism of a particular spokesman for a landlocked team. The Phoenix Suns aren’t in the best of shape. They haven’t had a chance to make any significant additions to…
