    Aug 12, 2011, 10:38 PM EST

    Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony - Red Carpet

    Hall of Fame induction ceremonies are by their nature emotional. This year’s was no different. There were memorable moments, watching Tex Winter get up to the stage, Artis Gilmore finally being recognized, Theresa Edwards’ powerful speech. Dennis Rodman was Dennis Rodman — raw, emotional, wearing a sequin jacket with his number and saying Pistons and…

  2. Nike sends Stoudemire, Rondo, Griffin back to school

    Aug 12, 2011, 9:14 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Last summer, “The Educators” was a pretty cool little ad campaign for Nike. So, why not do a sequel? Nike has made “The Educators 2″ with Amar’e Stoudemire, Rajon Rondo and now Blake Griffin added to the mix. It seemed a fitting thing to watch on a Friday night during the summer… get you thinking…

    UPDATE 8:02 pm: Tex Winter got his wish — just before the start of the Hall of Fame induction ceremony was about to start Phil Jackson and Jerry Krause shook hands, according to a tweet from K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. The two men there for Tex Winter sat three seats apart from each…

  4. Tyreke Evans wants to set up Kings practices during lockout

    Aug 12, 2011, 7:55 PM EST

    Tyreke Evans

    Amar’e Stoudemire is doing it with the Knicks. Zach Randolph is doing it with the Grizzlies. Now Tyreke Evans may do it with the Kings — set up practices during the lockout. That’s what he told Cowbell Kingdom during a podcast. “I was thinking about that, calling some of the players up, trying to get…

  5. Kobe Bryant breaks off negotiations with Turkish squad

    Aug 12, 2011, 6:44 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant is not going to Turkey. But other suitors still are seeking him out. Kobe and his agent Rob Pelinka met with representatives of Besiktas last week and the talks have broken off because the two sides could not reach a financial deal, reports Sportando.net. According to Obrad Fimic of Alti Sport who was…

  6. Video: The Nick and JaVale show

    Aug 12, 2011, 5:50 PM EST

    Nick Young

    Nick Young was out getting some run in, and JaVale McGee joined him, a couple of Wizards preparing for the season we hope will come someday. Then a camera found them, and it became “The Nick and JaVale Show.” Complete with Young — the fashionable one — joking that the Wizards can win a title…

  7. Artest would make $2,500 a month to play in Great Britian

    Aug 12, 2011, 4:58 PM EST

    Artest_Lakers

    It’s not about the money. If Ron Artest goes and plays for the Cheshire Jets — and he really want to — he would make less than most of you reading this. Basically everyone reading this who isn’t a student. And even some of them (especially the “students” playing football at Ohio State). Artest detailed…

  8. Video: Mozgov goes Blake Griffin on someone else

    Aug 12, 2011, 4:01 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    When you think of Timofey Mozgov and dunks, you tend to think of what Blake Griffin did to him last season. But Mozgov can dunk, too. Mozgov and Russia were playing Lithuania in a tuneup for EuroBasket when Mozgov ran the floor for the secondary break, got the pass in the paint and posterized some…

  9. Report: Greek team makes offer to Corey Maggette

    Aug 12, 2011, 3:45 PM EST

    Corey Maggette

    Greek teams were not expected to be big players in the “grab an NBA player during the lockout” game because, well, their country’s economy is so bad it’s sucking half of Europe into the seventh level of hell with it. But at least one team is making a run. According to TalkBasket.net (who got it…

  10. Video: Dwight Howard pokes fun at LeBron’s hairline

    Aug 12, 2011, 3:19 PM EST

    LeBron James

    Welcome to the lockout, when this will become a bigger story than it deserves. Dwight Howard was on BET’s “106th and Park” and was just doing some of his impersonations (he’s not bad at it). And when it got time to do Charles Barkley, Howard took another shot at LeBron’s hairline. This is nothing new,…

  11. What has Nate Robinson been up to? Watch “State of Nate”

    Aug 12, 2011, 2:07 PM EST

    Nate Robinson

    I know you have been sitting around wondering what Nate Robinson has been doing during the NBA lockout. Well, other than dreaming about life in the NFL. Now you can find out — episode one of “State of Nate” is out. This video is part of a web series following the Oklahoma City guard —…

  12. Quote of the day: Kemp no fan of Madison Square Garden

    Aug 12, 2011, 12:47 PM EST

    shawn_kemp

    “If you’ve been to some of these other arenas like Madison Square Garden, the rats are bigger than the average point guard.” —Shawn Kemp, in a chat with fans on the site of the Seattle Times (hat tip to @mhaubs from The Painted Area — a blog you should be all over this summer as…

  13. Should the Warriors retire Run TMC together?

    Aug 12, 2011, 12:18 PM EST

    Chris Mullin hall of fame

    Friday, Chris Mullin deservedly gets his place in basketball’s Hall of Fame. When you think of Chris Mullin what comes to mind? The flat-top haircut for sure. In New York it’s his years at St. John’s. Maybe it’s him draining threes on the 1992 Dream Team. For me, it’s Run TMC. Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond…

  14. How the Lakers ended up with Magic Johnson

    Aug 12, 2011, 11:25 AM EST

    Magic Johnson

    We tend to think that the reason franchises like the Lakers (or Spurs or recently the Heat) keep getting the best players is simply good management. They are smarter than the other guy. But with that has to come some luck. With that we present this video from nbatradetracker.net (via Ball Don’t Lie). I have always…

  15. Delonte West will not be playing overseas, a judge said so

    Aug 12, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    Delonte West

    In some ways, Delonte West is the kind of NBA player who should be looking overseas during the lockout. He’s a free agent so he doesn’t need an opt-out clause if he doesn’t want it. And while West makes good money by your and my standards (he made $1 million last season) he is not…

  16. Artest: “I’m definitely going to play for the Jets”

    Aug 12, 2011, 10:26 AM EST

    Ron Artest

    All we are saying, is World Peace is going to give England a chance. Yesterday, his handers were trying to play down the idea of Ron Artest — soon to officially be Metta World Peace — playing for the Cheshire Jets in England next season. He’s just going there next week to get the lay…

  17. David Stern talks lockout, spews usual rhetoric

    Aug 12, 2011, 10:05 AM EST

    NBA Labor Basketball

    David Stern is at the basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremonies this weekend. Last night he was shaking the hand of the Knicks Chauncey Billups, who is being recognized for his charity work. He was doing what a commissioner should do. But the cloud of the lockout looms over everything, including the Hall. When asked…

  18. Video: See just how good Arvydas Sabonis really was

    Aug 12, 2011, 8:48 AM EST

    sabonis-608

    For a lot of NBA fans, Arvydas Sabonis was that big Blazers center back in the late 80s-early ’90s, a big body with a nice, well-rounded game. But by the time he got here he was already past his peak, we didn’t see him back before an Achilles injury changed his career. Even after that he…

  19. Vlade Divac celebrates success of Basketball Without Borders

    Aug 12, 2011, 8:08 AM EST

    Vlade+Divac

    Basketball can bring people together. Fathers and sons. Different races. Different religions. None of that matters on the court. A decade ago, Vlade Divac and the United Nations started using basketball to bring together youth divided by the war that tore apart the former Yugoslavia. Divac is now enjoying the success of the program, something…

  20. Stern says players cancelled Thursday meeting, Union denies

    Aug 11, 2011, 11:32 PM EST

    NBA Commissioner Stern speaks at the state of the league press conference during the NBA All-Star game weekend in Los Angeles

    UPDATE 11:32 pm: As expected, the players union denies David Sterns claim. Here is the money graph from Yahoo Sports, quoting a union source: “The NBA refused to have a staff meeting [Thursday],” a union official said. “Billy Hunter has been with the [National Labor Relations Board] the entire week, including Thursday, and the NBPA…
