  1. This is Andrew Bynum parking in a handicapped spot

    Jul 19, 2011, 6:22 PM EST

    Bynum Parking

    Yep, that’s Lakers center Andrew Bynum parked in a handicapped spot while doing a little bit of shopping. Whatever the fine for parking in a handicapped spot is, Bynum can almost certainly pay it, but that’s not a good karma move, Mr. Bynum. My favorite part about this “controversy” is that the lot doesn’t even…

  2. Miami gets cakewalk early (and other schedule thoughts)

    Jul 19, 2011, 6:05 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Detroit Pistons

    The NBA’s schedule for the season is out and for at least one day we are going to ignore those ominous lockout clouds and pretend it’s just another sunny July day. With a full season ahead of us. With that, some follow up thoughts after our first glance post earlier today. • The Miami Heat…

  3. No Ty Lawson, NBA players can’t file for unemployment

    Jul 19, 2011, 5:03 PM EST

    Lawson_Ty

    The couple times NBA players have made jokes about “looking for work” they have felt the backlash quickly — for most of the United States trying to fight its way out of a deep recession, that’s not funny. Which brings us to Ty Lawson, the Nuggets point guard who tweeted: i wonder if i can…

  4. Shaq talks about Heat’s “big two.” Somewhere Bosh shrugs.

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    All last season Dwyane Wade and LeBron James did their press conferences together, usually well after Chris Bosh cleaned up in the locker room, came out and did his by himself. That combined with Bosh scoring 7 fewer points per game than either of the other two, and the fact the other two took over…

  5. NBA Schedule released, here are your highlights

    Jul 19, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    This NBA season is shaping up to be a fun one. Yes, we know, we know… IF there is an NBA season. But deep down we want to believe that the owners and players are too smart to piss away all the momentum the league has built up. For today we’re going to move ahead…

  6. Kobe speaks in China about Yao Ming’s impact

    Jul 19, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    NBA basketball player Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers smiles to fans upon his arrival at a stadium during his 2011 China Tour in Changsha

    Yao Ming is expected to officially announce his retirement Wednesday at a press conference in China. (And good on the NBA league office for clearing Rocket officials to go to the event in spite of the lockout). As you read this, Kobe Bryant is in China, the latest of his annual trips to China to…

  7. Dwyane Wade sues twitter, email hackers

    Jul 19, 2011, 1:38 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade

    Is there any athlete or celebrity out there who hasn’t claimed to have their twitter account hacked? Dwyane Wade is serious about his alleged hackers, though. He has filed a lawsuit against unnamed defendants who allegedly hacked into his twitter, Yahoo email and some other social media accounts, according to the Dallas Business Journal (the…

  8. David Stern to meet with FIBA leaders in New York

    Jul 19, 2011, 1:09 PM EST

    To match Interview NBA/STERN

    Officially, none of this is about the lockout and NBA players going overseas… unless that somehow comes up. NBA Commissioner David Stern has a meeting set up with FIBA secretary general Patrick Baumann this week in New York. With all the talk of players going overseas would say “what a coincidence” but everyone involved said…

  9. ‘Melo back in Denver Nov. 16… if there’s a season

    Jul 19, 2011, 12:13 PM EST

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    The official schedule release isn’t until later on Tuesday — so if you want to know when Toronto plays Minnesota you’ll have to wait — but some of the marque games are leaking out. Like when Carmelo Anthony returns to the Pepsi Center in Denver. It isn’t exactly LeBron returning to Cleveland, but it’s not…

  10. Video: Brandon Jennings off-the-backboard dunk

    Jul 19, 2011, 11:29 AM EST

    Image (1) Jennings_celebrate-thumb-250x260-10187-thumb-250x260-10188.jpg for post 3511

    Brandon Jennings looks pretty healthy this sumer. Last week he dropped 51 points in a game at the Goodman League in Washington D.C. Monday he swing by the Melo Center in Baltimore (yes, Carmelo Anthony’s center for youth development in Baltimore) for a little run. And nobody plays any defense at these pro-am games, so…

  11. Boy injured in Lamar Odom car accident passes away

    Jul 19, 2011, 10:56 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    We told you yesterday that Lakers and reality television star Lamar Odom was back in New York for the funeral of a family member when a car he was a passenger in was involved in an accident. At the time, we knew Odom was uninjured but not the severity of the other injuries. The 15-year-old…

  12. How intense are lockout negotiations? Fisher headed to Philippines.

    Jul 19, 2011, 10:30 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We tried to tell you earlier that there are no meaningful negotiations going on between the owners and players, that everyone is playing a game of lockout chicken, waiting for the deadline to put pressure on the talks. Here is another sign just how little is going on — union president Derek Fisher is heading…

  13. Attend a Liverpool game, get to meet LeBron James

    Jul 19, 2011, 10:11 AM EST

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    When English Premier League power Liverpool tour Asia next month — a chance to get in some warmup matches before the season and promote the brand in China — fans of the franchise would love the chance to meet Dirk Kuyt or Steven Gerrard. But they could get to meet LeBron James, reports the Sports…

  14. Timberwolves interview Mike Woodson for coaching gig

    Jul 19, 2011, 9:39 AM EST

    IL: Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls

    For the past few weeks, once the ownership change went through and John Kuester was let go, it was thought Mike Woodson was he frontrunner to be the new head coach of the Detroit Pistons. But Celtics assistant (and former Nets head coach) Lawrence Frank reportedly impressed owner Tom Gores in the interview. The Pistons…

  15. Report: Owners, players have no high level talks planned

    Jul 19, 2011, 8:07 AM EST

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    Every day we have some posturing news to report — “big name player X is really serious about playing in Europe/China next year” — but as for actual progress to end the NBA lockout…. Crickets. That’s not getting any better in the near future, reports Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated. The two sides are not…

  16. Michael Jordan can still dunk at age 48

    Jul 18, 2011, 10:40 PM EST

    Quail Hollow Championship- Pro Am

    Perks of going to the Charlotte Bobcats fantasy camp is that the owner may show up and hang out. Which is what happened Monday. According to Bobcats.com at the morning camp session one girl asked if MJ could still dunk. And we know how Jordan reacts to a challenge. At the evening session he showed…

  17. Lakers to open against OKC, host Bulls on Christmas Day

    Jul 18, 2011, 10:38 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose

    If you’re into the whole good news/bad news thing, then this is the place for you.  The good news is, the NBA is going ahead with releasing its schedule for the 2011-12 season, and doing so Tuesday at 2 p.m. Eastern. The bad news, as we’re all well aware at this point, is that there…

    Jul 18, 2011, 7:25 PM EST

    carmelo-paul-pierce

    Yes, yes, we know: If there’s a season. But since the league is pretending like there will be a season by releasing the 2011-12 schedule on Tuesday, as details of the marquee games continue to leak out, we’ll keep bringing them right to you. We’ve already told you that the main event on Christmas day…

    magic-hiv-presser

    November 7, 1991 was as dark a day as we’ve seen on the American sports landscape. That was the date that Magic Johnson held a press conference to announce to the world that he had contracted the HIV virus, and as a result, would be forced to retire from the Lakers. The basketball part was…

  20. LeBron James makes surprise appearance in Cleveland summer league game

    Jul 18, 2011, 5:29 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    LeBron James made a surprise appearance at the Chris Chambers City League Classic over the weekend, which takes place in Warrensville Heights, Ohio. It’s not exactly Cleveland, but being less than 20 miles away, it’s not far from there, either. So it might come as a bit of a surprise that the crowd received him…
