  1. Meet the new, business-like Gilbert Arenas

    Sep 28, 2010, 11:11 AM EDT

      Agent Zero was not just a player, he was a persona. Gilbert Arenas was personality, fun, carefree and exuberant off the court and on. A real character in an increasingly corporate league. Not any more. A bearded Gilbert Arenas was very business like at Wizards camp — Michael Lee of the Washington post described…

  2. Heat leave Miami for a little peace, but the throng follows

    Sep 28, 2010, 10:43 AM EDT

    The Miami Heat plane had plenty of radar tracking it as it landed at 10 p.m. last night at Eglin Air Force Base. As the team came down the stairs, they were greeted by a crowd that had been there three hours to see them. Such is the life of the Miami Heat now —…

  3. Zach Randolph wants Pau Gasol-like deal, Grizzlies being patient

    Sep 28, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    The Grizzlies are happy with Zach Randolph, they really are. Which is a pretty dramatic change from his last couple of stops. So it makes sense that the two sides have had some preliminary conversations about a contract extension, there is interest on both sides according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal. But on Randolph’s side,…

  4. Carmelo Anthony isn't part of team promotional filming

    Sep 28, 2010, 9:23 AM EDT

    Whatever state of limbo it may be in, the trade talks for Carmelo Anthony are not dead. The best sign of that: Denver did not ask him to participate in any of the team’s promotional filming on media day. We all read the quotes about the upcoming season on media day, but another part of…

  5. Corey Maggette may miss entire preseason

    Sep 28, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    While everyone was looking at Andrew Boguts’ elbow, another Bucks injury slipped under the radar. Corey Maggette, who is counted on to be the scoring punch off the bench for Milwaukee (if not the starting small forward) underwent ankle surgery in July and may miss the entire preseason recovering, according to the Journal Times. “I…

  6. Orlando believe 12 is better than three when it comes to Miami Heat

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:07 PM EDT

    If you like messin’ with Sasquatch, then go to an Orlando Magic practice and start asking questions about the Miami Heat. Pretty much the same reaction. Orlando general manager Otis Smith led the “hey, maybe they should play a game before we anoint them” cries, as reported by FanHouse. “They’ve got three, and we’re solid…

  7. Devin Harris not happy to be in middle of trade rumors

    Sep 27, 2010, 9:16 PM EDT

    New Nets coach Avery Johnson has pumped up Devin Harris at every turn. He is mentioned in every discussion of the young core. Johnson talked about getting Harris back to slashing into the lane, scoring more, being a focal point of the offense. And then Harris shows up in trade rumors, with him headed to…

  8. Vinny del Negro already criticizing Baron Davis' conditioning

    Sep 27, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    There is hope in Clipperland again. They could be pretty good, what with Blake Griffin healthy, surrounded by All-Star Chris Kaman, Eric Gordon (fresh off a fantastic World Championships), Randy Foye, Al-Farouq Aminu, Eric Bledsoe, De Andre Jordan and more. But there is one the thing that could quickly undermine the Clippers hopes — Baron…

  9. Jamal Crawford not worried about contract extension

    Sep 27, 2010, 6:36 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks guard and reigning 6th Man of the Year award winner Jamal Crawford is entering the last year of the 7 year, $55.44 million contract, but he’s not letting contract negotiations become a distraction to him.  When asked about his contract extension, Crawford was nonchalant, saying that “If [an extension] doesn’t work out we’ll cross that…

  10. Rudy Fernandez comes to camp, kills his own trade value

    Sep 27, 2010, 6:10 PM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez spent all summer whining — or having his agent whine for him, that’s why the man gets paid the big bucks — about wanting to be traded from Portland. So what’s the first thing he does at media day? Cuts his own trade value off at the knees. Here is the tweet from…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
