  1. Mo Williams says he was "misquoted" about considering retirement

    Sep 23, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    A few days ago, Mo Williams was quoted as saying he considered retirement after LeBron James’ decision in a Marc Spears story on Yahoo!. Now Williams is saying his statements were misunderstood. From his twitter account: Just need to put this out there to all my fans about the yahoo story about me retiring, sense…

  2. Wizards to wear red, white, and blue jerseys in 2011-12

    Sep 23, 2010, 6:46 PM EDT

    During Washington Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld’s press conference earlier today, he announced that the Wizards will switch their official color scheme to red, white, and blue for the 2011-12 NBA season. The team’s current colors are white, blue, gold, and black.  Here’s an unofficial look at what red/white/blue Wizards jerseys might look like. In…

  3. Suns sign Alvin Gentry to extension

    Sep 23, 2010, 6:32 PM EDT

    With Amar’e Stoudemire in New York, Leandro Barbosa in Toronto, and Hedo Turkoglu and Josh Childress joining the team, the Suns have made some major changes to their on-court personnel for next season. More changes may be on the way when Jason Richardson and Grant Hill’s contracts expire after this season. However, it looks like…

  4. Deron Williams, backflipping off a cliff

    Sep 23, 2010, 5:31 PM EDT

      Courtesy of the good people at SLC Dunk, here’s Utah Jazz point guard Deron Williams doing a backflip off a cliff at Sand Hollow state park in Utah. (Hat tip to Deadspin, who added a T.I. soundtrack to the video.)  Pretty well done, although Chris Paul probably could’ve added a half-twist to it if…

  5. Donnie Walsh's Catch-22

    Sep 23, 2010, 4:36 PM EDT

    Knicks decision maker Donnie Walsh would love to get in on the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, but he doesn’t have all the chips needed to get a seat at the table. He doesn’t have a first round draft pick (well, not until 2014 anyway, and nobody wants to wait that long). A pick like the one…

  6. Chinese team targets Rafer Alston and Flip Murray

    Sep 23, 2010, 3:37 PM EDT

    The Chinese Basketball Association may not have the same draw as more prestigious European leagues, but what it does have is a type. Stephon Marbury. Steve Francis. Maybe Allen Iverson. The CBA has become a post-NBA destination for low-efficiency scoring point guards, and according to the Hoops Market, we can now add two more prospective…

  7. Phil Jackson reminisces about Scottie Pippen (and his defense)

    Sep 23, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson got put on the radio — ESPN 1000 Radio in Chicago — with Scottie Pippen, and he sounded like a coach. We fans have our memories of Pippen the player, the dramatic dunks and the big games. The rings. But Jackson thinks of Pippen the defensive leader.  The other thing that I remember…

  8. Magic draft pick Daniel Orton may need surgery

    Sep 23, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    The Magic don’t really need another center right now — the Dwight Howard guy is working out pretty well — but they took a smart risk drafting that other guy out of Kentucky, Daniel Orton. But it is going to be a while until we see if that risk pays off — Orton may need…

  9. NBA Season Preview: The Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 23, 2010, 2:11 PM EDT

    Last season: The Bucks flew through the home stretch to finish with a 46-36 record, but the train carrying deer to be feared was derailed by a season-ending injury to Andrew Bogut. Head Coach: Scott Skiles, who lived up to his reputation as an excellent defensive coach by making the Bucks’ D the second best…

  10. Celtics draft pick Avery Bradley not ready for start of camp

    Sep 23, 2010, 1:12 PM EDT

    Celtics fans are going to have to wait a little longer to see what they got with draft pick Avery Bradley, as he will not be ready for the start of training camp. Back in pre-draft workouts Bradley sprained his ankle, which never helps your stock. Boston took him anyway, seeing him as a long-term…

  11. Andrew Bynum put off surgery, now will miss training camp recovering. He's maturing?

    Sep 23, 2010, 12:43 PM EDT

    We told you yesterday that the Los Angeles Lakers were “hopeful” Andrew Bynum would be ready to go by the start of the season. Kevin Ding of the Orange Country Register put another spin on that today. Bynum put off having offseason surgery on his right knee so he could play – and we’re not…

  12. Kobe Bryant remains top selling NBA jersey in China

    Sep 23, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Kobe is big all over the globe. That includes China, where for the fourth year in a row he tops the league in jersey sales, according to the league. Rounding out the top five are LeBron James, Dwight Howard, Kevin Garnett, and Derrick Rose. The next five are Chris Paul, Paul Pierce, Deron Williams, Ray…

  13. Nets want the old slashing, scoring Devin Harris back

    Sep 23, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    Two seasons ago Devin Harris was slashing into defenses, scoring 21.3 points per game on a true shooting percentage of 56.3. He was one of the best young point guards in the game. Last season, the Nets tried to make him more of a passer — his percentage of assists went up and his shots…

  14. New Orleans, Philadelphia trade some bench players

    Sep 23, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    We have a trade! Not the one everyone has been talking about and speculating on for the past few days. But a trade nonetheless. Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news with a tweet. New Orleans has traded Darius Songalia and Craig Brackins to Philly for Willie Green and Jason Smith, league source tells Y! This…

  15. What Steve Nash really wants to do is direct

    Sep 23, 2010, 10:08 AM EDT

    Movie directors need to be passionate about their subject for the work to be any good. Steve Nash is passionate about Terry Fox. Which is what should make Nash’s directorial debut interesting. Nash and his production company have made “Into the Wind” about Fox for part of ESPN’s fantastic 30 for 30 series. Terry Fox…

  16. Joakim Noah doesn't want to be traded

    Sep 23, 2010, 9:26 AM EDT

    Be part of a powerhouse team that could be very good in Chicago or be part of a rebuilding process in Denver where you will forever be “the guy we traded the best player in franchise history for.” Shockingly, Joakim Noah is partial to the first option. Still he went to the old but true…

  17. Top 10 training camp questions

    Sep 23, 2010, 8:57 AM EDT

    Once training camps get rolling next week, there are going to be a lot of questions around the league — and not all of them are about the Heat. Although it will feel like that for a while. NBC’s Ira Winderman put together a list of those top 10 training camp questions (outside of “What…

  18. David Stern tells Gilbert Arenas not to discuss gun incident

    Sep 23, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas and David Stern got together Wednesday to talk shop. I kind of like to picture it over high tea with little cucumber finger sandwiches. But that part is irrelevant. What matters is what Stern told Arenas, as reported by Michael Lee at the Washington Post. NBA Commissioner David Stern spoke with Arenas on…

  19. Nuggets asking the world for Carmelo, Nets pushing to make it happen

    Sep 23, 2010, 1:05 AM EDT

    The Chicago Bulls talked with Denver, but the Nuggets demanded that Joakim Noah be part of the deal. So it fell apart. The New Jersey Nets talked to Denver, but the Nuggets demanded that Brook Lopez be part of the deal. So it fell apart. Sensing a pattern here? Denver is listening to offers for…

  20. "It must be bobblehead night." "No, it's Iguodala night."

    Sep 22, 2010, 9:30 PM EDT

    These NBA 2K11 promo commercials just work for me. Especially the part where Josh Smith tells everyone else they suck.
