  1. Chris Bosh is cool with you hating the Heat

    Aug 18, 2010, 1:14 PM EDT

    It’s trendy to hate the Heat, what with their ripping the hearts out of Cleveland to form the Superfriends. Trust me, plenty of people around the league have the hate, some going so far as to say the only thing that could ever get them to root for the Lakers in the finals would be…

  2. Now ex-Timberwolf Nathan Jawai to play in Serbia

    Aug 18, 2010, 1:01 PM EDT

    Big news: Nathan Jawai, the 2008 second rounder who played for Minnesota last season and Toronto the season prior, will play professionally for BC Partizan in Serbia next season, according to Inside Hoops. It’s only big news because all things with Nathan Jawai are, well, big. The guy’s built like a Winnebago. Jawai is definitely…

  3. Stephen Curry twists ankle at Team USA practice, is day-to-day

    Aug 18, 2010, 12:50 PM EDT

    And somewhere in Maui, for a reason unbeknownst to him, Don Nelson felt a chill go up his spine…. In the final minutes of a Team USA practice scrimmage Wednesday, Stephen Curry went down with a twisted ankle, according to John Schuhman of NBA.com. The team is calling it mild and he is day-to-day. Team…

  4. Your team may have a better trade for 'Melo, but if he wants to go to New York he will

    Aug 18, 2010, 12:37 PM EDT

    It’s everybody’s favorite new game — come up with a trade for Carmelo Anthony. ‘Melo wants out of Denver and from radio talk shows in Chicago to Timberwolves message boards everybody has an offer to bring Anthony to their city. Chicago fans have a plan. So do Nets fans, Lakers fans, Magic fans and so…

  5. Lou Amundson is done in Phoenix, but the Hornets, Warriors, and Pacers are knocking on his door

    Aug 18, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    Louis Amundson was the most understated of Phoenix’s tremendously successful reserve unit last season. Leandro Barbosa was the established veteran scorer, and could catch lightning in a bottle. Goran Dragic was the young up-and-comer, officially hosting his coming out party on the Spurs’ home court during the first round of the playoffs. Channing Frye was…

  6. Anderson Varejao injured in international game, will be out one week

    Aug 18, 2010, 12:02 PM EDT

    UPDATE 12:02 pm: The Brazilian doctors have taken an MRI of Varejao’s right ankle and there is no serious damage. In fact, he could play tomorrow, according to Cleveland AP writer Tom Withers. Also, the Cavaliers have spoken to Varejao and know this is nothing serious. 8:56 am: Cleveland’s Anderson Varejao suffered an ankle injury…

  7. Jerry Buss likes his Lakers chances against Miami

    Aug 18, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    It’s trendy now to say you didn’t watch “The Decision” because you had better things to do. Wash your hair, read “Ulysses” or whatever. But mature people like Shaq didn’t watch it. Well, Jerry Buss did, as he told ESPNLosAngeles.com during a Lakers charity poker event. “[It was] mixed emotions. My feeling was that he…

  8. Larry Bird issues statement, Lance Stephenson wants to talk to him

    Aug 18, 2010, 10:18 AM EDT

    On Oct. 19, Lance Stephenson will have to appear in a New York court to face charges of assault, reckless endangerment and menacing after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend and the mother of his child, throwing her down a flight of stairs according to police. Those legal issues should be at the front of Stephenson’s…

  9. Brandon Roy apologizes for appearance in marijuana positive rap video

    Aug 18, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy is pretty late to the “appear in a rap video” trend. If pasty white Mark Cuban is doing one before you, you are tardy. But Roy — along with Atlanta’s Jamal Crawford — is in the new video for Cali & Cavalli’s “What They Want,” which first showed up over at BlazersEdge. The…

  10. LeBron James says his elbow is still not right

    Aug 18, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    There are enough conspiracy theories around LeBron’s elbow that I’m convinced it was injured by the man in the grassy knoll. While LeBron doubters have called it imagined, in a much-overlooked part of the GQ interview James said the elbow still bothered him (the interviews took place in July). “I go out there and get…

  11. One man puts together the entire NBA schedule. And you thought a Rubik's Cube was hard.

    Aug 17, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    This makes a 1,000 piece puzzle of a polar bear on a snowy landscape look like child’s play. Matt Winick makes the NBA schedule. Him and a computer. No team of guys slaving over diagrams and flipping through reems of information. Well, there are reems of information, but just one guy. Kevin Arnovitz did a…

  12. Tyreke Evans is much worse at golf than Charles Barkley. Seriously.

    Aug 17, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    There was a time late last season when I was convinced Tyreke Evans could do anything. I have now taken golf off that list. (via Hooped Up) Things DeMarcus Cousins is sure to bring up include…

  13. Paul Pierce thinks Sheed could come back in February. Sheed disagrees.

    Aug 17, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace is going to be like Elvis this year. Jim Morrison. Tupac. He will not be dead and there will be sightings of him — and the return of his career — all over the place. Particularly Boston, as Sheed will still be living in the city. The first one of those came from…

  14. Ron Artest: "I partied hard as hell"

    Aug 17, 2010, 7:48 PM EDT

    No Laker has enjoyed the spoils of being a champion this summer like Ron Artest. Then again, no Laker earned the right to party with a great Game 7 of the finals like Ron Artest. And party Ron Artest has, as he said in an interview with FanHouse. It’s been fun — a little too…

  15. NCAA President wants the NBA to adopt baseball-like draft rules

    Aug 17, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

    It’s been a couple of years since the NBA passed its “one-and-done” rule to prevent players from coming straight into the NBA from high school, and so far things have worked out pretty well. Kevin Durant, John Wall, and Derrick Rose all got to raise their national profiles significantly before becoming top-two picks, which paid…

  16. Yes, J.R. Smith does have a new neck tattoo

    Aug 17, 2010, 5:14 PM EDT

    There it is, in all its glory — courtesy of J.R. Smith’s twitter account, a picture of the rainbow-lettered “Swish” that Nuggets swingman J.R. Smith managed to fit in between his Adam’s apple and his chin.  Considering Smith already has multiple neck tattoos, including an overlapping set of tattoos on his Adam’s Apple, this has…

  17. Atlanta Hawks have no interest Earl Boykins

    Aug 17, 2010, 5:05 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:05 pm: Few teams carry three pure point guards on their roster. The Hawks will not be one of them. The much trusted Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal Constitution shoots down the idea of Hawks interest in Boykins. For one, from everything I’ve heard the Hawks aren’t really interested in adding another guard.…

  18. Report: The Knicks may have made an offer for Carmelo Anthony, but he likes Orlando, too

    Aug 17, 2010, 4:41 PM EDT

    We said this morning that Carmelo Anthony needs to make his intentions clear to Denver — sign the extension or tell them to trade him. But maybe he has, as Ken Berger suggests at CBSSports today. If he has, things are still not going to move quickly because right now Denver is without a general…

  19. The Utah Jazz really did upgrade their uniforms

    Aug 17, 2010, 3:57 PM EDT

    This is the time of year when teams unveil their “new” uniforms, which usually is a couple of minor changes to the old uniform around the neck line, or using a different numbers font. Not thrilling, but it’s good enough for a press release and an off-season party. But the Utah Jazz have made some…

  20. God did not come down and take Tracy McGrady's game away. According to McGrady.

    Aug 17, 2010, 3:10 PM EDT

    There are plenty of Tracy McGrady doubters out there. Doubts about his health, his age, his game. Plenty of doubters in the media, plenty of them in NBA front offices (some of whom worked him out then had more doubts). But McGrady doesn’t doubt himself. And he told WDFN in Detroit that he will be…
