    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…

  2. 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…

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

    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…

  4. 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…

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

    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…

    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…

  7. 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…

  8. Report: Knicks will host Celtics on Christmas Day

    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…

    Jul 18, 2011, 6:34 PM EST

    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…

  10. 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…

  11. Video: Steve Nash scores a parking space, does a happy dance

    Jul 18, 2011, 4:33 PM EST

    Ever wonder what Steve Nash does after practice? Me neither. But the fine folks at Toyota decided to give us a glimpse at one of the possibilities anyway, and it involves driving a Prius, needlessly beating out an elderly woman for a space in a wide open parking lot, and then taunting her with some…

  12. Celtics near major broadcast rights deal with Comcast New England

    Jul 18, 2011, 3:41 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Just months after the Los Angeles Lakers brokered a deal that will pay the franchise handsomely to be the anchor of a new regional sports network in that city, the Boston Celtics are near their own blockbuster deal. The Celtics and Comcast Sports Net New England (CSNNE) are close to a 20-year extension of their…

  13. Terry Porter interviews for Timberwolves coaching job

    Jul 18, 2011, 3:19 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Clippers

    Don Nelson is getting all the hype, but he is still in Maui. (If you have to be somewhere, that’s not a bad place to choose.) But former Bucks and Suns head coach Terry Porter is in Minnesota talking to the Timberowolves official about their head coaching job, according to the Star Tribune. Porter has…

  14. Lockout has players flocking to Drew, Goodman leagues

    Jul 18, 2011, 2:49 PM EST

    summer league

    The Drew League in Los Angeles is an institution, a part of the fabric of hoops in the city, and it usually has some name NBA players taking part — Baron Davis has run there seemingly forever. But this year it seemed more NBA guys came in (including Kevin Durant, who was putting on a…

  15. Brandon Jennings says “it’s time to become an all-star”

    Jul 18, 2011, 2:05 PM EST

    jenningseuro

    Brandon Jennings has been good. After skipping college to go play professionally in Europe not everyone was convinced he could be a team leader over here, but he started out on fire and had an impressive rookie season. But injuries slowed him last season — he missed 19 games and was never quite right. He…

  16. Agents expect overseas signings to escalate. Of course they do.

    Jul 18, 2011, 1:28 PM EST

    Sasha Vujacic

    At the end of the day, what is the job of an NBA players agent? Make his client as much money as possible. Picture Cuba Gooding Jr. yelling “show me the money.” If a player isn’t going to be getting paid in the NBA — and a lot of agents think this lockout is going…

  17. How about Bulls vs. Mavericks to open NBA season?

    Jul 18, 2011, 12:28 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Chicago Bulls

    The NBA schedule for next season will get released in full on Tuesday — write that down in pencil — but little bits are getting leaked out now. Like an NBA finals rematch on Christmas Day. Looks like the Bulls will open their season against the Dirk Nowitizki and the defending world champions on Nov.…

  18. Union to help players get insurance if they head overseas

    Jul 18, 2011, 11:46 AM EST

    Deron Williams

    There are hurdles to getting NBA players overseas during the lockout. One is getting FIBA — basketball’s international governing body — to sign off on letting guys under contract go play for another team. FIBA has not officially ruled on that, yet. Then there is the little matter of insurance. Well, it’s not such a…

  19. Winderman: NBA to release schedule, but put it in pencil

    Jul 18, 2011, 11:10 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    When the NBA schedule is announced Tuesday, it either will be embraced or taken as yet another lockout tease, sort of like the list of available free agents. It will be a tangible, yet tormenting, moment, particularly when it comes to the interconference portion of the schedule. For those who forget, when the NBA endured…

  20. Knicks, D’Antoni could turn to Frank for defensive help

    Jul 18, 2011, 10:59 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    Lawrence Frank coming to the rescue of the New York Knicks? Maybe, if Mike D’Antoni gets his way. At least that’s the report. The Knicks want — and need — an assistant coach to take over and be “defensive coordinator” and Frank did that job last season for the Boston Celtics (who had the second…
