  1. Magic sign Stanley Robinson to camp contract; him making the team a longshot

    Aug 16, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    Stanley Robinson is the kind of guy teams should take a shot at in the second round — no doubt this guy is an NBA-level athlete. He needs more skills and more polish — he needs some coaching and time in the gym — but the foundation is there. The Orlando Magic took him with…

  2. Pistons about to sell for less than Warriors

    Aug 16, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Last December, Forbes estimated the value of the Golden State Warriors at $315 million, yet when the team hit the open market, it sold for a record $450 million (although that deal has yet to be finalized). So with the Detroit Pistons valued at $479 million, they should sell for… Nope. They are not going…

  3. Quote of the day, Larry Bird gets the laugh at the 1960 US Olympic Team's expense

    Aug 16, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    “I don’t know who had the best team, but I know the team in 1960 was a hell of a lot tougher than we were. I couldn’t imagine the ’92 team getting in a covered wagon for eight days, going across the country, jumping in the Atlantic Ocean, swimming for six days, then walking 3,000…

  4. Oleksiy Pecherov signs deal to return to Europe

    Aug 16, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    For the past three seasons, Oleksiy Pecherov tried to find his place in the NBA. Now his place will be in Milan. Pecherov has signed a deal to play for Armani Jeans Milano, according to The Hoops Market. Pecherov played in just 44 games for the Timberwolves last season. Then with the re-signing of Darko…

  5. Kobe Bryant shows some respect for Spain's national team

    Aug 16, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    In establishing the hierarchy of teams competing in the FIBA World Championships, Team USA and Spain are clearly on the top tier. Both squads have superior talent to the rest of the Championship pool, and while both have their respective kinks to workout before the competition really ramps up, they’re rightfully considered co-favorites. However, it’s…

  6. Udonis Haslem started the Heat party a bit early

    Aug 16, 2010, 9:12 AM EDT

    UPDATE Aug. 16, 9:12 am: Here comes the defense, and to be blunt (pardon the pun) it’s a pretty familiar… It wasn’t his, it was the passengers, he didn’t even know it was there. You know, all the stuff you told your parents as a teenager when they thought they smelled chronic in the car…

  7. Coby Karl may not be done in Denver after all

    Aug 16, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Coby Karl has NBA talent, but he probably hasn’t played enough games in the big leagues to be considered an NBA player. That title is reserved for those who have had more than a weekend retreat on an NBA roster, and though Karl has technically been a part of 24 NBA contests, he’s never really…

  8. Doc Rivers gave Shaq a reality check before Boston signed him

    Aug 16, 2010, 8:58 AM EDT

    Shaquille O’Neal was still on the market late in the free agent season in large part because of his demands. He was asking for at least the mid-level exception. He wanted a key role on the team. Basically, he wanted to be treated like the Shaq of 2005. Boston was interested in him, but not…

  9. Can Boston start an all future hall of famers lineup?

    Aug 16, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    We said it before — if this were 2000 the Boston Celtics would be an unstoppable force. And yes, I know Rajon Rondo would have been 14 at the time, wouldn’t have mattered with Shaq, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in their primes. But it is a decade later, and the Celtics have…

  10. Lance Stephenson arrested, reportedly pushed his girlfriend down a flight of stairs

    Aug 15, 2010, 11:02 PM EDT

    There have been good vibrations in Indiana since the Pacers picked up Darren Collison to be their new point guard, but Lance Stephenson has just created an unmistakable cloud over the franchise. According to John Lauinger of the New York Daily News, Stephenson has been arrested for an altercation involving his girlfriend, and charged with…

  11. Amare Stoudemire in Israel

    Aug 15, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    There was a lot of talk about Amare Stoudemire going to the Holy Land this summer (in part because the New York media was excited to have a big star to write about again, not that Starbury wasn’t fun and all). That led to a lot of speculation. Here, you can see for yourself what…

  12. JaVale McGee discovered last season he has asthma

    Aug 15, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Last season, Flip Saunders kept watching JaVale McGee and thinking “he shouldn’t get that tired that fast.” McGee is maybe the best athlete on the team, one of the best natural athletes in the association, yet he wore down quickly. That had been happening since he played at Nevada, but he went to the doctor…

  13. Dwyane Wade shows no mercy, swats shots of little kids

    Aug 15, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade blocking childrens’ shots from John Karalis on Vimeo. Dwyane Wade is better than your average 10 year old on the court. You probably knew that, but if you had any questions about his ability to dominate children on a court, here is the video evidence from an exhibition event at Rucker Park in…

  14. Carmelo Anthony plans on taking his sweet time with extension decision

    Aug 15, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony seems pretty comfortable stepping into LeBron James’ shoes. Last season, in every city he traveled to, James got the question “can you picture yourself playing in X?” He tried to shut the speculation down, he stopped talking about his contract issue, he said he had thought about playing everywhere. But every stop of…

  15. Team USA routes France. What did we really learn?

    Aug 15, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    As expected, Team USA routed France, 86-55. We talk about how Team USA is sending a “B” team to the World Championships (Kobe, LeBron, Wade, Melo and more are staying home) but France also has six NBA players not suiting up, including Tony Parker. So what we know for one thing is that the basketball…

  16. Sorry Knicks fans, but the Isiah Thomas saga may have another chapter

    Aug 15, 2010, 1:32 PM EDT

    It’s the questions most often asked around the New York Knicks saga: Why in the world would the Knicks even consider bringing Isiah Thomas back? Are they dropping acid like it’s 1968 in the Knicks offices? Bringing him back makes no sense if you’re thinking like a basketball executive. It makes no sense if you’re…

  17. JaVale McGee, Jeff Green cut from Team USA

    Aug 15, 2010, 11:55 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee is a freak athlete, but that alone is not enough to get you on Team USA. McGee himself announced that he has been cut from Team USA via his twitter account this morning. The Bad new is….. I got cut from the USA team :(… But i get to go back and work…

  18. Danny Granger and the Pacers are aiming for another big

    Aug 15, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    The Indiana Pacers already made quite the shake-up in acquiring Darren Collison from the New Orleans Hornets last week, but neither Larry Bird nor Danny Granger seem to be ready to accept the roster as-is. From Chris Tomasson of FanHouse: Asked by FanHouse on Friday in Springfield, Mass., where Bird was inducted into the Basketball…

  19. Charlotte aimed for a mediocrity, and it's paying off

    Aug 15, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    The “right way” to build an NBA franchise is from the ground up. Clear out contracts. Draft well. Sign value free agents to smart deals. Stay young and stay flexible, in the hope that one day an elite player will finally fall into the team’s lap. Unfortunately that’s not a blueprint most small-market clubs can…

  20. Report: Nuggets waive Coby Karl, injured Brian Butch

    Aug 15, 2010, 8:17 AM EDT

    The Nuggets reportedly made a couple of roster moves this weekend, one expected and one that is bad Karma, according to Chris Tommason at FanHouse. The Nuggets have waived Coby Karl, the son of coach George Karl. Which was both expected and a little bit sad because the younger Karl has NBA game but his…
