  1. Are the Warriors better off with Keith Smart?

    Sep 18, 2010, 9:42 AM EDT

    The tea leaves read “Nellie is done.” And though Nelson long and distinguished career is certainly worth respecting, you can still hear the collective sigh of relief, followed by the sharp intake of anticipation from Warriors fans. A fresh start. A new beginning. A change in the winds. Or, you know, not really any of…

  2. Dallas Mavericks Transformers

    Sep 17, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    The Dallas Mavericks promo videos are just the best.

  3. Raptors draftee Ed Davis has knee meniscus injury. That's not good.

    Sep 17, 2010, 7:14 PM EDT

    This is the kind of thing you hate to hear right before camp, what the concern was when word leaked yesterday that Toronto draft pick Ed Davis injured his knee in a workout. The Raptors announced late today that it was a meniscus injury and that they are looking at treatment options. A torn meniscus…

  4. Quincy Douby's former agent wins tampering case

    Sep 17, 2010, 5:53 PM EDT

    The story of Quincy Douby’s agent acting improperly won’t get the attention of the Reggie Bush controversy, but Douby’s agent recently became one of the few sports agents to be successfully prosecuted for improper behavior.  Howard Beck of The New York Times has the full story, but the basic facts are these: -Keith Glass, Douby’s…

  5. Today's Erick Dampier update: Heat, Rockets and Hawks (yes, it's the slow time of year)

    Sep 17, 2010, 4:55 PM EDT

    You now it is the slowest time of year when we have daily updates on Erick Dampier. Nonetheless, here we go: Dampier is finalizing his list for meetings and it is expected to include the Miami Heat, Houston Rockets and — the newcomer to the party — the Atlanta Hawks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of…

  6. Spoelstra says some Heat starting positions still open. Small forward is not one of them.

    Sep 17, 2010, 4:18 PM EDT

    Don’t assume Erik Spoelstra knows how all this is going to fit together. He’s spent all summer thinking about what the Miami Heat will look like next season — and as head coach he has some say in the matter — but he told Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel he wants to let the…

  7. Duke's Jon Scheyer not going to Jazz camp after all

    Sep 17, 2010, 4:07 PM EDT

    UPDATE 9/17 4:07 pm: Or not. I mean who wants to go to camp in Utah anyway? According to his agent Mark Bartelstein, Scheyer will not be attending the Jazz’s training camp (according to the twitter account of Jazz beat writer Brian Smith). The Jazz have offered and it made sense to think he would…

  8. Charles Barkley admits he took money in college. Yawn.

    Sep 17, 2010, 3:46 PM EDT

    So is the NCAA going to go back and make Auburn forfeit wins from 1982? In a revelation that should be shocking to almost nobody, Charles Barkley admitted he took some money while in college during a conversation about Reggie Bush on the Dan Patrick radio show (as transcribed on Beyond The Arc). If a…

  9. Does Wade or LeBron start driving the lane less?

    Sep 17, 2010, 2:57 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade and LeBron James may be the two best players at getting to the rim in the NBA. It’s a scary prospect to think of that on the same team — but would the fact they like to do the same thing force one to alter his game some? Does one become a guy…

  10. Jon Brockman has figured out how Bucks fans eat

    Sep 17, 2010, 2:25 PM EDT

    People are not healthy eaters in Wisconsin. Sure, there are exceptions (I hear you Madison) but I’ve seen it. I live in image-conscious Los Angeles, where there are great burgers, but creative variations of the Steve Nash diet — or just sushi — are the diet staples. Visit my relatives in Wisconsin, and it’s a…

  11. Want to cover Miami Heat camp? Then pass a military background check.

    Sep 17, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    There were a few goals in mind by Miami Heat executives when they decided to move their training camp to Hurlburt Field and Eglin Air Force Base in Fort Walton Beach, up on the Florida panhandle. The key one — make it a lot harder for the media to be intrusive. The hotel where the…

  12. NBA Season Preview: Toronto Raptors

    Sep 17, 2010, 12:38 PM EDT

    Last season: 40-42, and a late-season meltdown kept them out of the playoffs. (If you need to add that to your Chris Bosh hate fuel in Toronto, so be it.) Head Coach: Jay Triano, and despite the loss in talent you can be sure his seat is getting a little warm. (So is GM Bryan…

  13. Why Dirk stayed in Dallas: The owner gets it

    Sep 17, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    LeBron James had questions about Cleveland, its ownership and the grand plan. He didn’t have those questions (or far fewer ones) about Miami. Dirk Nowitzki was a free agent this summer too, although nobody expected him to move. He told Mavs Moneyball it was owner Mark Cuban’s commitment to winning that made sure he did…

  14. Quote of the day: Paul Pierce on the look in Tom Thibodeau's eyes

    Sep 17, 2010, 11:20 AM EDT

    “Coach Thibs has square eyeballs from watching so much videotape.” –Boston’s Paul Pierce, on the work habits of former Celtics assistant and now Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau. From Bulls.com.

  15. Talking beards with Boozer

    Sep 17, 2010, 10:44 AM EDT

    Training camps don’t start for two weeks, games for more than a month, so we’ve got some time. We can focus on the important things. Like personal hygene. And beards. The Bulls Carlos Boozer knows his sh… stuff about beards, so the people from Dime Mag sat down with him and talked about it. And…

  16. Monta Ellis grows up. And Curry, he's sorry about all that stuff last season.

    Sep 17, 2010, 10:21 AM EDT

    Things are changing in Golden State — from the new owners coming in next month to the new team logo. Soon enough there will be changes in styles of play and how the team is run. Monta Ellis is changing, too. He’s maturing. That comes off in a fantastic bit of reporting and writing by…

  17. The Nets new plan: 2012

    Sep 17, 2010, 9:33 AM EDT

    I don’t care about the billionaire owner and the new building and Brooklyn — if you are coming off a 12-win season, free agents will not be flocking to you. It was no surprise the Nets struck out on LeBron James and the other top-of-the-class free agents. So the Nets set out on a short-term…

  18. Sixers deny any serious Carmelo Anthony talks

    Sep 17, 2010, 9:09 AM EDT

    Yesterday we told you about rumors of a complex, still-in-discussions trade involving the Nets, Sixers and Nuggets in an effort to grant Carmelo Anthony a one-way ticket out of Denver. Except the Sixers say they are not playing that game. The original report came from the Ken Berger at CBSSports, but the Philadelphia Inquirer asked…

  19. Eat like Steve Nash

    Sep 17, 2010, 8:37 AM EDT

    It’s the latest diet craze — Shaquille O’Neal has said he is on “the Nash diet.” Jared Dudley has asked about it. Bloggers are trying it. Pretty soon they’ll be talking about it on Oprah and then it is on. That’s Nash as in Steve Nash, still an elite point guard long after most his…

  20. Seattle Storm are your WNBA champions

    Sep 17, 2010, 1:08 AM EDT

    You have your perfect Storm. The Seattle Storm had the best regular season record in the WNBA. They swept through the playoffs undefeated. They have been the best team in the league. It is fitting that after an 87-84 win in Atlanta Thursday night they swept in again to be WNBA champions. Atlanta led much…
