    Aug 10, 2010, 10:15 PM EDT

    Sitting in front of Carmelo Anthony is a three-year, $65 million extension to stay in Denver.

    Aug 10, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    Aug 10, 2010, 6:11 PM EDT

    NBA.com’s John Schuhmann is in Manhattan covering Team USA’s pre-FIBA scrimmages, and he has some notes from the four six-minute scrimmages that ended their practice.  There’s a lot of interesting stuff in there, but perhaps the most interesting note from Schuhmann’s diary is that Kevin Durant was the power forward in every lineup that he…

  7. Winderman: Nine games the Heat could lose you didn't expect

    Aug 10, 2010, 5:49 PM EDT

    Even before the NBA released its complete schedule Tuesday, there were plenty of logical assumptions that could have been made about the longshot odds of the revamped Miami Heat matching the 72-10 of the 1995-96 Bulls. There are, after all, four games apiece against the Celtics and Magic, as well as two against the Lakers,…

  8. Danny Granger injures finger with Team USA

    Aug 10, 2010, 5:16 PM EDT

    Danny Granger is too often overlooked — he was eighth in the NBA in scoring last year — a very good player lost on a struggling team. He could use a breakout forum, like Team USA at the World Championships. Except that is now up in the air. Granger thinks he dislocated the ring finger…

    With today’s release of the 2010-11 NBA schedule, one interesting thing to look at is which teams will be playing the most back-to-back games next season. Bradford Doolittle of Basketball Prospectus was kind enough to go through each team’s schedule, count all the back-to-backs, and put each team’s number of back-to-backs in descending order on…

    Aug 10, 2010, 3:32 PM EDT

    Rabbi Yishayahu Yosef Pinto is the rabbi to the financial stars in New York, the guy New York’s Jewish real estate experts, financial wizards and the like consult for advice.

    Aug 10, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    The NBA released the full schedule today, and here are a few thoughts from a first glance at it. * Teams are allowed a total of 34 national television appearances per season (ABC, ESPN, TNT and NBATV combined).

  13. Isiah Thomas takes part in ad campaign opposing gay marriage ban in California

    Aug 10, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    Aug 10, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

  16. Shaq says he just wants to win, will come off the bench to do it

    Aug 10, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    There was nothing crazy from Shaquille O’Neal at his introductory press conference as a Celtic. Wearing a bow tie was about the only unexpected thing he did at the event. Every word out of his mouth was what you want to hear if you’re a Celtics fan. Like, would he be willing to come off…

    Aug 10, 2010, 10:52 AM EDT
