  1. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar apparently big Billy Corgan fan

    Jul 3, 2011, 5:10 PM EDT

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    When you woke up this morning you probably said to yourself, “If there is one thing I would like to see today, it is Kareem Abdul-Jabber smashing a pumpkin.” We’ve got that for you. Just watch the video below (via SLAM). And with it comes Kareem pimping the new Smashing Pumpkins album. Only in America.…

  2. John Calipari opens up Kentucky facilities to former Wildcats locked out

    Jul 3, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    NCAA Men's Final Four - Kentucky v UConn

    John Calipari’s recruiting abilities seem to border on the magical. He’s pulled in three of the last four Rookies of the Year, and his current class features what is likely the top pick (Anthony Davis), along with what could be at least two other lottery selections in 2012. In short, it’s completely absurd what kind…

    Rudy Fernandez goggles

    HoopsHype brings us the following from Mundo Deportivo (translation via Google Translate, and is rough): Real Madrid has offered for Rudy to become the highest paid player in the history of the ACB. His proposal is for six seasons and yearly amounts would be close to 3 million euros. The club accepts that Rudy would…

  4. Deron Williams signs with new agent, Jeff Schwartz

    Jul 3, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    It’s been a year of changes for Deron Williams. He had a baby girl, he got traded from the Jazz to the Nets, he had wrist surgery; it was a whirlwind year. And now another change has come. Williams has signed with a new agent, Jeff Schwartz. It’s almost as big of a deal for…

  5. Nets really want to land Dwight Howard. Shocking, I know.

    Jul 3, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Deron Williams has chosen his new agent, Jeff Schwartz, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. An agent with a lot of NBA pull and a roster of 20 clients he represents (including Paul Pierce, Kevin Love, Blake Griffin and Lamar Odom). Williams can opt out of his contract next summer and is expected to do…

  6. Rockets draftee Motiejunas sees lockout, will stay in Europe

    Jul 2, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    USA v Lithuania - 2009 FIBA U19 World Championship

    This was one of the reasons you saw a lot of teams drafting international players in this year’s draft. Rockets first round pick Donatas Motiejunas has gotten a look at the NBA lockout situation and decided to stay and develop for another year in Italy, according to the Houston Chronicle. Motiejunas expects to accept an…

  7. Players proposed barnstorming tour of China gains Kobe

    Jul 2, 2011, 5:01 PM EDT

    1st Annual Cartoon Network's "Hall Of Game" Awards - Show

    We told you the other day how the Wasserman Media Group was proposing a barnstorming tour of China next fall by NBA players if the lockout is still dragging out. The Los Angeles Times tells us Kobe Bryant’s agent Rob Pelinka is thinking the same thing — and that would give a tour real star…

  8. Kyle Korver saved a turtle

    Jul 2, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Hope you like stories like these, ’cause you’re getting a lot of them from now until the lockout’s over. Last May, Kyle Korver was driving down a rural Pennsylvania road. He saw a friend dealing with what looked to be a bloody mess on the side of the road. So he pulled over to help.…

  9. Could NBA players form their own league during the lockout?

    Jul 2, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Derek Fisher

    It’s an insane idea. It requires more financial resources than they currently have. It requires more organization than they currently have. It requires risks the players are unwilling to take. And it is, just in general theory, completely bonkers. But it is an interesting question. Could the players form their own, independent league during the…

  10. Report: How NBA owners turn profits into paper losses

    Jul 2, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    To match Interview NBA/STERN

    UPDATE July 2, 11:10 am: We need to make you aware of some flaws in the accounting used by Deadspin (and repeated here) in their original post that was the basis of this one. However, I don not believe it changes the overall theme that completely legal and widely accepted general accounting principles allow an…

  11. Blazers were aware of Roy’s knee issues when they signed him to a max contract

    Jul 2, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Former GM Kevin Pritchard went on John Canzano’s radio show in Portland to talk about his time and experience with the Blazers before he was (randomly) fired, and his thoughts on the league going forward. During the interview, Pritchard left an interesting bit of information out there regarding the decision to grant Brandon Roy his…

  12. Report: Sonny Weems is headed to Europe as the floodgates open

    Jul 2, 2011, 9:28 AM EDT

    WEEMS_SONNY

    Sonny Weems will be the first to say “screw it” and head overseas for the lockout. With Weems a restricted free agent, even after the Raptors extended a qualifying offer before Friday’s lockout was imposed, Weems was eligible to sign elsewhere, and has. Hoopsworld reports the young wing is on the verge of signing a…

  13. Study shows Sacramento arena would bring billions to surrounding area

    Jul 1, 2011, 8:59 PM EDT

    ProposedKingsArena

    While the NBA stumbles all over itself trying to divide up a multi-billion dollar pie, the folks in Sacramento are making moves to put their own pie into the oven. The Think Big Sacramento coalition, which is the ever-changing moniker of the grassroots political coalition to keep the Kings in town (formerly Here We Build),…

  14. Gilbert Arenas makes the lockout simple for everyone

    Jul 1, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    In case you are not sure exactly why the NBA is locking out, you should read our Q&A explanation… which is the best we can do. Gilbert Arenas probably did it better on twitter (@agentzeroshow). SBN collected his 140 characters into paragraphs for us, and he gets it (from a players perspective). For the people…

  15. Lockout nearly forces Bosh to rearrange wedding seating chart

    Jul 1, 2011, 5:54 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    We told you earlier today, the NBA is VERY serious about the whole “teams cannot contact players during the lockout” thing. If you’re the team PR guy and you just happen to run into a player at the grocery store, you have to file a notice with the league. But what happens when the two…

  16. NBA agents are pessimistic about quick end to lockout

    Jul 1, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    Few have as much at stake without a seat at the table as NBA agents. It’s their direct livelihood being discussed, how they can do their job, but they have no real say. And you’d be hard to find a more pessimistic group about how long this lockout is going to drag out. Look what…

  17. How the NBA lockout will impact Olympic qualifying

    Jul 1, 2011, 3:22 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 14 - Basketball

    London Olympics bid are on the line all over the globe this summer — at Eurobasket in Lithuania, at the Americas tournament in Argentina, plus events in Africa and other spots around the globe. And the NBA lockout could impact all of it. Among the things that went away with the NBA lockout was the…

  18. With lockout, NBA risks killing hard-won momentum

    Jul 1, 2011, 2:38 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    The owners and players are walking a fine line. They both want a financial deal that is good for them not just next year but for the next five plus years — and this year’s Collective Bargaining Agreement will end up being the basis of the next deal, too. Both sides have a lot of…

  19. Brian Scalabrine serious about taking his talents to Europe

    Jul 1, 2011, 2:02 PM EDT

    Brian Scalabrine

    We told you it’s not going to be as easy as some players think for them to just jump over to Europe and play as the lockout drags on. But if you’re a free agent who is willing to commit to a couple of years in Europe, it may work out. Meet Brian Scalabrine, in…

  20. Durant says NBA players not going to give in

    Jul 1, 2011, 1:01 PM EDT

    kevin-durant-union

    We bring you another show of NBA player unity… but frankly we have questions about how well that is going to hold up long term. Kevin Durant doesn’t want to hear any of that, as he told the Associated Press. “We’re going to stand up for what we have to do, no matter how long…
