  3. Jermaine O'Neal says he chose Boston because they have walked the walk

    Sep 13, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    Jermaine O’Neal had options this summer — he was a skilled big man who would be playing for a very affordable contract. Two contenders in the East wanted him, Miami and Boston. O’Neal has been near the top looking down on the rest of the league before, with Indiana in the pre-brawl years. It was…

  4. LeBron James says he tried to repay Cleveland on the court, is ready for change

    Sep 13, 2010, 12:49 PM EDT

    Does LeBron James owe Cleveland anything? LeBron has been at the center of the NBA universe this summer, but has said very little personally to the media (we’re not really counting The Decision as hard-hitting questions). There are a lot of questions to be asked, and Lang Whitaker of SLAM covered many of them a…

  6. Samuel Dalembert wants the rock

    Sep 13, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    Philadelphia didn’t expect scoring out of Samuel Dalembert, he was the defensive stopper. Last season he got an average of 6.4 shots per game and that led to 8.1 points. Not much, but those numbers were up from the year before. But Dalembert can score, and he wants the rock, as he told RDS.ca (as…

  7. Lou Amundson reaches deal with Golden State Warriors

    Sep 13, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    They may not have a classic big man, but the Golden State Warriors have an athletic and interesting front line. One that just got more interesting with news that Lou Amundson has reached a deal with the Warriors, a two year deal worth just less than $5 million, with the second year a player option…

  8. Spanish bank BBVA signs $100 million marketing deal with NBA

    Sep 13, 2010, 10:36 AM EDT

    When you flipped away from NFL Sunday to watch some of the WNBA finals… well, if you had (and you should have to watch Sue Bird drain a free throw line jumper with 2.6 seconds left to give Seattle the win), you would have noticed something: Both teams had the logo for BBVA on their…

  9. Antoine Walker to be working out in Charlotte, hoping for camp invite

    Sep 13, 2010, 9:34 AM EDT

    Money is a motivator. Antoine Walker needs money, he owes Vegas casinos $1 million after a settlement and has debts piled high as he tries to climb out of the hole from a terrible gambling addiction, one that left him nearly broke. So Walker is looking to get paid to play. He has been working…

  10. Kevin Durant, flawed and perfect

    Sep 13, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant has yet to disappoint. He had a fantastic rookie year, has grown in each of his three seasons in the NBA, and emerged as one of the top players in the game. KD’s also riding a hell of a PR typhoon after the tectonic shift known as The Decision changed, well, everything. LeBron…

  11. Pops Mensah-Bonsu may not be playing overseas after all

    Sep 13, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    A month ago, Pops Mensah-Bonsu was bound for Spain, set for next season on a deal with Caja Laboral. Since then, Mensah-Bonsu tore up a EuroBasket qualifier as a member of Great Britain’s national team, and secured GB a spot in the big, bad EuroBasket tourney next summer. Apparently in Spain, this is grounds for…

  12. On eve of court date, Matt Barnes portrays himself as a family man

    Sep 13, 2010, 8:27 AM EDT

    Monday Matt Barnes will be in a Sacramento court, facing changes in a domestic violence case. Sunday night Barnes tweeted the photo you see here, with his sons. The caption read “Me & Isaiah learning the new triangle offense.” The timing of the photos is not a coincidence. Whether they accurately reflect Barnes’ family life,…

  13. Heat dancer dies in motorcycle accident

    Sep 12, 2010, 9:13 PM EDT

    Cheerleaders and dancers aren’t exactly given a lot of consideration in media. They are often overlooked as they are a cosmetic addition to the game, There’s a reason Red Auerbach fought their inclusion. But those women do work very hard at what they do, and considering their significant involvement at community events as part of…

  14. Dampier "in limbo" as Bobcats phone rings off hook with trade offers

    Sep 12, 2010, 8:58 PM EDT

    It’s been 60 days as of Monday since the Charlotte Bobcats acquired Erick Dampier from Dallas. Which means that as of Monday they can trade him. So their phone is ringing off the hook. Dampier did not reach a minutes played marker in his contract last season, so his deal is not guaranteed. Waive him…

  15. USA uses "Big Ds" — Durant and defense — to beat Turkey, win gold

    Sep 12, 2010, 4:53 PM EDT

    Think back a couple weeks ago to the start of the FIBA World Championships, to all those concerns about Team USA — they were not big enough, they lacked international experience, they were too young. You can get caught up in what a team can’t do and ignore what it can. And this version of…

  16. A look back at a goofier, meaner Knicks

    Sep 12, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    NBA Tumblr Fat Shawn Kemp posted this video this morning, and as it harkens back to the days of the NBA on NBC, features a truly vicious Knicks team in a completely goofy way, and Danny Aiello, I thought it might bring some joy to you heart. After all, how much would you give to…

  17. Durant's Gold Medal performance less magic, more an omen

    Sep 12, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    If you were surprised, you need to work on your predictive logic. There was nothing surprising about Kevin Durant’s 28 point barrage to keep the good ship Team USA afloat in their FIBA Championship victory over Turkey. Nor was there anything shocking about his stunning 38 point dismantling of Lithuania in the semifinals. This is…

  18. Stan Van Gundy fires back at Pat Riley's verbal retaliation

    Sep 12, 2010, 9:22 AM EDT

    I’m pretty sure we’ve got a bonafide war of words on our hands. Stan Van Gundy responded Saturday to Pat Riley’s comments about himself and Magic GM Otis Smith and their criticism of the Heat. In an interview with the Magic’s website, Van Gundy laughed at what he considers to me a double-standard with Riley.…

    Sep 11, 2010, 10:49 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant was part Texas playing at Oklahoma. That was nothing. Chauncey Billups has been the road team in the NBA Finals. But that was nothing like this. Lamar Odom has heard the fans in Boston during the NBA finals, but he has heard nothing like what he will Sunday. The USA is going to…
