  1. The Knicks bench could win them some games. No, I mean it.

    Sep 13, 2010, 7:20 PM EDT

    While you were busy talking about how the Knicks missed out on LeBron and Wade but got that Amare guy and he’s not that bad, you missed something. Donnie Walsh put together a pretty deep team. Not deep with name guys in the Lakers sense, but similar in one way — deep with guys who…

  4. Chicago counting on chemistry to make them elite

    Sep 13, 2010, 5:09 PM EDT

    Kyle Korver thinks the Chicago Bulls need to be mentioned in the top tier of the East, with Miami and Boston (and maybe Orlando, we like them there but you can argue that one). Most people have them as good but a notch below. How is Chicago going to get to that elite level, you…

  5. LeBron James skips OSU/Miami after he can't get a police escort

    Sep 13, 2010, 4:36 PM EDT

    Oh, LeBron. We know you’re not just a big walking ego. We get why you went to Miami and that you took less money to do it. We think the trio of you in Miami is going to work out. We’re not on board with the “hate all things LeBron” trend that seems to have…

  6. Dwyane Wade has gotten some grief, but he's happy it's nothing like LeBron

    Sep 13, 2010, 3:39 PM EDT

    Ah, we are happily part of this Internet media age, when we can pass along a story on Dwyane Wade responding to comments Pat Riley made to chastise comments on Stan Van Gundy and Charles Barkley…. Wade talked with friend/contributor/bon vivant of this blog Ira Winderman, in his role as the Heat and NBA writer…

    Sep 13, 2010, 2:52 PM EDT

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  20. 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.
