  1. Eddy Curry already out four to six weeks. Mike D'Antoni not stunned.

    Sep 27, 2010, 5:54 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:54 PM: It took three days into camp for the Knicks to say Curry would be out four-to-six weeks with injured hamstrings. He will not be joining the team in Europe for preseason games. A whole continent is depressed. What is the under/over for games Curry plays in this season? Three? 11:14 am: Eddy…

  2. Durant says he "doesn't think he's on LeBron's level."

    Sep 27, 2010, 5:18 PM EDT

    At some point, LeBron/Durant debates are going to become inevitable, but one man thinks it’s a bit early to start comparing LeBron and Durant in earnest — Kevin Durant. At Thunder media day, Durant was succinct when asked about James, saying “I don’t think I’m on LeBron’s level. I’m working to get there, but I’m…

  3. Elton Brand drops weight, back to his old Clipper size

    Sep 27, 2010, 5:09 PM EDT

    Elton Brand the Sixer did not look like Elton Brand the Clipper. After the Achilles injury he looked slower — in part because of the injury and in part because he was heavier. New coach Doug Collins noticed that, and challenged Brand to get back to his official listed weight of 254. He did, minus…

  4. Carmelo Anthony sounds like LeBron, says he'll keep his options open

    Sep 27, 2010, 3:32 PM EDT

    “I’m here today… Whatever the future holds, it holds. I’m leaving my options open right now. That was Carmelo Anthony today, sounding a lot like LeBron James a year before. What the Denver Nuggets want to avoid is a LeBron repeat — an entire season of speculation followed by losing their best player and getting…

  5. Miami Heat's big three talk controversy, but they'd like to just play some ball

    Sep 27, 2010, 2:48 PM EDT

    Enough with the speculation, let’s roll the balls out on the court and play. Finally. That was the core of what LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh said when they sat down in front of the press at Heat media day Monday in Miami (televised on ESPN). They sat down with Wade in the…

  6. Is Chris Bosh a leader? Not in Toronto, according to coach

    Sep 27, 2010, 2:24 PM EDT

    Part of the problem in Toronto last season, part of the reason the Raptors folded and did not make the playoffs, was a lack of leadership in that locker room. That according to Raptors coach Jay Triano, who also told Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel that you better not expect leadership out of Bosh…

  7. Carmelo Anthony at Nuggets camp. Now what?

    Sep 27, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony is in the Nuggets locker room. The talks around trading him continue to swirl. Those two things we know… So, now what? We wait. Wait for Anthony to speak at camp (which he may or may not do, things keep changing). Wait for someone to blink. For Anthony to sign a deal and…

  8. Tony Parker to Spurs: "I want to stay here."

    Sep 27, 2010, 1:29 PM EDT

    Tony Parker has been rumored to want to play for the Knicks. Well, who hasn’t. There has been everything but Brett Favre to the Knicks rumors (and would that one shock you?). But the Tony Parker ones make some sense — he’s be a great fit in the Mike D’Antoni system, he’s in the last…

  9. NBA Season Preview: Atlanta Hawks

    Sep 27, 2010, 12:43 PM EDT

    Last season: 53-29, three seed in the East. The Bucks pushed them seven games in the first round, then Orlando swept them in the second. Head Coach: Larry Drew. Basically the Hawks decided to fire their coach and go for change by hiring the old coach’s right hand man. Interesting theory. Drew may have been…

  10. The NBA's most influential: Gilbert Arenas, #10

    Sep 27, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Greetings and welcome to the “NBA’s most influential,” a list of the 10 players who will/could have the greatest impact on the league next season. To be clear: this is not a list of projected MVP candidates, or who this author thinks will be the 10 best players in the league next season. It is…

  11. Deron Williams is Batman, Al Jefferson is Robin

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:41 AM EDT

    Al Jefferson has gone from the constant rebuilding project that is Minnesota to the most stable organization in the league in Utah. From the flatland to the Rockies. He went from Jonny Flynn at point to Deron Williams. Jefferson gets how lucky he is, and who D-Will is, as he told the Salt Lake Tribune.…

  12. Michael Beasley, soon to discover golf's winter rules

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami has seemingly countless clubs and ways for players to get into trouble. The other thing it has seemingly countless numbers of is golf courses. Ones you can play on pretty much 365. To Michael Beasley’s credit, when he got frustrated and down while disappointing the fans and staff in Miami, he sought solace on…

  13. Shaq to Kobe: "I don't compete with little guards"

    Sep 27, 2010, 10:41 AM EDT

    They are older and a little less petulant, but don’t think the Shaq v. Kobe rivalry is dead. In his post Game 7 press conference last June, Kobe Bryant was quick to say last year that “I got one more (ring) than Shaq.” That rivalry still matters to him (Kobe uses everything for motivation). Shaquille…

  14. Erick Dampier says it's down to four teams, Portland now in mix

    Sep 27, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    Erick Dampier made a decision, he wanted to take his backup center talents to South Beach, like everyone else. But for reasons not totally clear, Miami didn’t want him (Damps is not a great center, but he’s better than anyone they’ve got). So he’s taking his time making another decision. He told Sam Amick of…

  15. Richard Jefferson has the nerve to go back to the basics

    Sep 27, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    I’m not sure where Richard Jefferson learned how to be a professional athlete, but I’m pretty sure he’s doing it wrong. First, he abandoned huge short-term financial gains in favor of a more practical long-term deal. Well-played certainly, but to give up a $15.2 million single-year salary along with a chance to play his way…

  16. Toronto is the new, slightly gimpy horse in the race for Erick Dampier's services

    Sep 27, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    A union between Erick Dampier and the Miami Heat apparently made too much sense to come to fruition. Now, rather than the serviceable big man going to the championship contending team a bit lacking in serviceable big men, Dampier will likely land with another playoff-caliber squad. Or maybe the Toronto Raptors. According to Adrian Wojnarowski…

  17. Report: Fesenko to re-sign with the Jazz

    Sep 26, 2010, 10:07 PM EDT

    It’s a testament to the desperate state of NBA centers that Kyrylo Fesenko is relevant news with training camp starting this weekend in some places, but them’s the breaks. Marc Stein of ESPN reports via Twitter that Fesenko has decided to pass on an offer from the Houston Rockets and accept a one-year, $1 million…

  18. Kobe Bryant on LeBron James, his finger

    Sep 26, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    LeBron James is in Miami. The Larry O’Brien trophy is still in Los Angeles. And if you think it will be easy to pry it out of this guy’s fingers — whatever shape they are in — you are bat guano crazy. Here Kobe talks about his ailing finger then LeBron James.  

  19. Denver, Philadelphia talking Carmelo Anthony, Andre Iguodala trade

    Sep 26, 2010, 8:04 PM EDT

    UPDATE 8:04 pm: The Daily News is now reporting that Anthony’s people said he would not sign an extension in Philly. Which would make any other negotiations moot. Basically, Melo’s people trying to keep the Knicks and Bulls in play, the Nuggets keep looking for the best deal with little interest in making Melo happy.…

  20. Hey Carmelo, if not the Knicks or Nets, how about the Timberwolves?

    Sep 26, 2010, 5:57 PM EDT

    If the four-team blockbuster with the Nets falls through, if the Nuggets are not going to accept a deal from the Knicks, if the Bulls are not throwing Joakim Noah in the deal, what is Carmelo Anthony going to do? How about the Minnesota Timberwolves? We’re not kidding, there was this note in the Twin…
