  1. Ever want to smell like Lamar Odom? You'll soon be in luck.

    Aug 19, 2010, 10:50 PM EDT

    Le odor de Odom. When you’re a hot celebrity couple and you attach your name to something and people will buy it. Regardless. For example, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are teaming up on a unisex fragrance. I couldn’t make this stuff up. Kardashian confirmed it to the New York Daily News (via the fashionista…

  2. Portland being very cautious with Greg Oden, will not commit to him starting season

    Aug 19, 2010, 10:08 PM EDT

    If you were trying to bring along Greg Oden right now, you would be incredibly cautious. If not you’d be incredibly foolish. General Manager Rich Cho and the rest of the Portland Trail Blazers brain trust are not foolish. They are not letting anyone talk to the public about where things stand. They are working…

  3. Your first look at NBA 2K11, complete with MJ shoulder shrugs

    Aug 19, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    Just a little taste to get you drooling…. some Snoop Dogg, some MJ, some James Worthy. I am ready for Oct. 5.

  4. Crime lab mishandled evidence in murder of Michael Jordan's father

    Aug 19, 2010, 7:35 PM EDT

    Where is Horatio Caine when you need him? The crime lab in Raleigh, North Carolina, mishandled evidence in more than 200 cases in a 16-year span, according to an independent report obtained by the Associated Press. That means a lot of cases are about to be re-opened. One of those may well be Daniel Andre…

  5. Rudy Fernandez fined $25,000 by league

    Aug 19, 2010, 6:47 PM EDT

    We told you the league was looking into this, well they did and it didn’t take long for the league to decide Rudy Fernandez’s public whining about wanting a trade or to be released violated league policy. The NBA announced that Fernandez has been fined $25,000 for “public statements detrimental to the NBA.” What does…

  6. Today in overseas basketball brawls: Krstic vs. Big Sofo

    Aug 19, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

      Well, here’s something you don’t see every day. During a “friendly” match between Greece and Serbia’s national teams, a fight broke out between two of the players. There were harsh words, some shoving, and it looks like the Serbian player spit at the Greek one. That led to lots more shoving, halfhearted punching, and…

  7. What is holding up the Xavier Henry signing? Well, can he make the All-Rookie team?

    Aug 19, 2010, 5:33 PM EDT

    Maybe the definition of the NBA silly season has been the Xavier Henry contract situation. To recap: Henry has not signed his contract. There is a rookie contract scale in place so the NBA doesn’t look like the NFL with guys who never played a down holding out, Henry is slotted for just shy of…

  8. Best trick shot we've seen in a while: From a free fall ride

    Aug 19, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    You all know the free fall ride — the ones at amusement parks where you go up to the top of some tall structure then they essentially drop you off it. You get the sensation of falling without having to jump out of a plane, or the sensation of smashing into the ground. But do…

  9. Today's tedious Rudy Fernandez update: NBA is investigating if he threatened holdout

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:57 PM EDT

    The way he and his agent are now acting, you’d swear Rudy Fernandez was being held hostage at gunpoint somewhere. So on day 64 of the crisis here’s the status: Fernandez wants to be traded, ideally to be bought out so he can return to Europe. Portland is listing to offers but has held its…

  10. Derrick Rose got his own, custom made Skittles machine. Top that Durant.

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:39 PM EDT

    Skittles are where it’s at. Forget Lamar Odom and his candy obsession, that’s just one M&M in the bag. More NBA players than you think love Skittles. I mean love. Michael Beasley sung their praises. Kevin Durant’s neighbors bring them to him. There are many more NBA players who you can always catch with a…

  11. Paul Pierce wants to play one year in Europe before he retires

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:01 PM EDT

    If you talk to Mychal Thompson — the former No. 1 overall pick who may be best known for being part of the back-to-back champion Showtime Lakers — he speaks glowingly about his time playing in Greece. A lot of players do, they like the overseas experience. Paul Pierce wants that experience and told Comcast…

  12. For many NBA players, charity is not just a tax write off

    Aug 19, 2010, 2:25 PM EDT

    The NBA Cares. It does, but the league has other motives, as well. The NBA hypes up its players doing community work — talking at schools, visiting children in the hospital — in part because it’s good for the league’s image. It’s something to try and counter the stories of arrests and crimes that also…

  13. Andrew Bogut elbow still not right, could miss start of season

    Aug 19, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    When you think back to just how gruesome Andrew Bogut’s elbow injury was, the fact that rehab has had setbacks and he could be out longer than he hoped should be a surprise. Bogut did a television interview in his native Australia (which was transcribed over at the Real GM forums and was found by…

  14. NBA eyes the Indian market, delegates Pau Gasol as a league ambassador

    Aug 19, 2010, 1:06 PM EDT

Exhibition games have been played in several other countries (Mexico, the U.K., China), broadcasts are translated and sent out all over the world, and the NBA hosts all kinds of events across almost every…

  15. Earl Boykins near deal with the Milwaukee Bucks

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:50 PM EDT

    There’s not a lot of minutes to be had as the third point guard in Milwaukee, but whatever those minutes are it appears Earl Boykins is going to get them. Boykins is near a one-year deal with the Bucks, according to the Journal Sentinel. While details were not discussed, this almost certainly is for the…

  16. FIBA to use video review for last-second shots at the World Championships

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:29 PM EDT

    FIBA has slowly been evolving to meet the NBA’s rule standards, and according to Brian Mahoney of the Associated Press, they’ll take a page from the NBA in regard to video review. While FIBA hasn’t adopted a widely-implemented use of video replay (like the kind that caused so much controversy during the NBA finals), there…

  17. If Doc Rivers hadn't returned, the band would have broken up in Boston

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers gave very serious consideration to walking away, taking a season off from basketball to hang with his children and decompress. But he decided to give it one more shot. If he had deciding something else, the rest of the Celtics core would have splintered as well, Paul Pierce told Comcast New England (via…

  18. Kenyon Martin feels Carmelo's Anthony's pain

    Aug 19, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    While certain agents and back-room deal loves may be pushing for fast action, nothing fast is going to happen with Carmelo Anthony. Denver needs to get a general manager first. Then this GM will want to talk to ‘Melo face-to-face, Then the powers that be need decide if they are going to trade him or…

  19. Travis Diener signs to play in Italy

    Aug 19, 2010, 10:50 AM EDT

    When it comes to vacation destinations, the Italian island of Sardinia blows Indianapolis out of the water. No offense intended, Indiana, it blows all but a handful of places in the United States out of the water. It is a stunningly beautiful place. So despite the fact that Indianapolis is a better basketball destination, it’s…

    Aug 19, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry is still listed as day-to-day, but Thursday wasn’t that day. Curry sat out Team USA’s Thursday practice in Spain, according to John Schuhman of NBA.com. However, he is said to be improving and will be back on the court soon. Now, does soon mean before this weekend’s Team USA games (Lithuania on Saturday…
