    For the last week, Anderson Varejao was back in his native Brazil after the death of his grandfather, but Thursday he returned to Cleveland and the Cavaliers. Byron Scott told the Akron Beacon Journal that he was not just going to throw Varejao out there upon his return. “He looked great and it was good…

  2. Ronnie Brewer was the one guy who wanted to be in Utah, had to go to Chicago

    All summer long there was talk about players trying to get to Miami or New York or Chicago — nobody wanted to be in the small markets, everybody wanted to go big time. Not Ronnie Brewer. He wanted to stay on Utah, but they didn’t want him, Brewer told Chris Tomasson of FanHouse. So he…

  3. Amar’e Stoudemire may do another magazine cover… but clothed this time

    stoudemire-pooljump

    Few images get seared into your brain — whether you want it to or not — quite like Amar’e Stoudemire’s picture for the ESPN The Magazine’s body issue. I think Trey Kerby at The Score said everything I wanted to. And a few things I didn’t want to. But, you know, his knee looks good,…

    Tiny Gallon’s NBA prospects have been touch-and-go for awhile now, but the Milwaukee Bucks have finally cut him — along with Billy Rush and Tory Jackson — from their preseason roster, according to The Hoops Market. Milwaukee selected Gallon with the 47th pick in this year’s draft, but the additions of Drew Gooden, Jon Brockman,…

  5. Maybe we haven’t seen the last of Don Nelson after all

    Don Nelson’s tenure as head coach of the Golden State Warriors was marked by one shining moment and countless infuriating ones. Between Nelson’s influence on personnel decisions, his rotations, his handling of players, and the general quagmire that plagued the Warriors organization as a whole, few things seemed to go right in the Bay. Moving…

  6. Guy to watch in Toronto: Linas Kleiza

    Oct 7, 2010, 2:35 PM EDT

    Everybody on Toronto was lighting up the Phoenix Suns in their first exhibition game Wednesday night — when you put up 129 and win by 51 everybody is getting their shot to fall. Well, except Andrea Bargnani, who was just 1-of-9 for three points. We’ll call it an off night and look the other way…

  7. Yao Ming’s limp not because of his foot. Well, it kinda is, but not what you think.

    We made note of it as did many other outlets — Yao Ming played 12 minutes in the Rockets first preseason game then came out with a slight limp. On a guy who just missed an entire season after foot surgery, it’s a concern. We’ll it’s not pain in his foot that’s the problem, according…

  8. Carlos Boozer gets beat in HORSE by a high schooler

    Oct 7, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer has range for an NBA big man, and if this was a game of one-on-one it would be over. But HORSE…. the kid has a chance. This was part of the Gatorade Replay series, which Boozer was helping out on (hat tip to Ball Don’t Lie).

  9. NBA Preview: Denver Nuggets

    Oct 7, 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

    Last season: 53-29, tied them for the four seed in the West, but without George Karl on the sidelines (due to cancer treatments) they got bumped off in six games by a Mehmet Okur-less Jazz team. Head Coach: George Karl is back after missing the second half of last season ad the playoffs battling throat…

  10. Jason Kidd wants to play until he’s 40… no that is not next week

    Oct 7, 2010, 12:14 PM EDT

    Image (1) Kidd_floater-thumb-250x374-21447.jpg for post 4423

    Big men have played until they turned 40 in the NBA — Shaquille O’Neal wants to do it now, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Robert Parish have done it among a number of others. With guards, that’s much harder. Michael Jordan played until he was 39 and you notice that Washington Wizards Jordan didn’t end up in…

  11. Give Marcin Gortat the damn ball

    Oct 7, 2010, 11:37 AM EDT

    Image (1) nba_gortat.jpg for post 6334

    Marcin Gortat is not just a big body in there to bang and grab rebounds and not screw up while Dwight Howard gets a blow for the Magic. He wants you to know he can shoot — sure he only took one shot a game last season but he hit 53 percent of then. At…

  12. Miami Heat love them some military grade weapons

    Oct 7, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    When the Miami Heat were at Eglin Air Force Base for training camp, they took a break from running suicides to check out people firing some big guns shooting up walls and cars. And they loved it. LOVED IT. Check out reactions of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Eric Freeman of Early Termination option found…

  13. Grant Hill and Reggie Evans in the worst ejection ever

    Grant Hill and Reggie Evans got ejected from a preseason game last night for patting each other on the butt. Seriously. It may be the worst ejection we can remember in the NBA. Referee Bill Kennedy is in mid-season overreaction form. It happened while the Raptors were blowing the Suns out of the building Wednesday…

  14. Ron Artest, NFL tight end? Boxer?

    Oct 7, 2010, 9:36 AM EDT

    Image (1) rartest_postgame-thumb-250x140-17190.jpg for post 6331

    Apparently Ron Artest is tired of seeing his name on ProBasketballTalk and wants to see his name on ProFootballTalk. And do some boxing. Basically he just wants to fill up Michael David Smith’s twitter time line. From Hoopshype: After I’m done with my basketball career, I want to box and I wanna play football -probably…

  15. All Peja Stojakovic wants is a pain free season

    Oct 7, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    Image (1) nba_stojakovic_250.jpg for post 6330

    Last season, Peja Stojakovic missed 20 games due to a lingering back issue. The year before 21. Those two years his field goal percentage dropped 40 points from what it had been three years ago, from three (his specialty) the percentage dropped 60 points. Now, at age 33, he told Hornets.com what happens next depends…

  16. Could it be the Washington Bullets once again?

    Oct 7, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    Washington’s new owner Ted Leonsis promised changes. He asked fans what needed to change around the Wizards and the Verizon Center where they play. He got a box full of suggestions, and on Wednesday he posted a list of 101 things he has done to improve the team at the request of fans (via the…

  17. Agent: Hey, stop picking on Rudy Fernandez, it's not nice

    Oct 7, 2010, 1:02 AM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez has not been popular in Portland this summer. Primarily because he said he didn’t want to be there anymore, said he wanted to be in Europe and had an agent publicly pushing for a trade. But you know, aside that it’s all puppies and rainbows. Jason Quick of the Oregonian wrote what a…

  18. Dwight Howard music video: "Fast Don't Lie"

    Oct 6, 2010, 11:30 PM EDT

    This has been all over the NBA blogosphere (I can’t remember where I saw it first at this point or I’d link… sorry) but it is too dang funny not to watch a couple more times. Dwight Howard should wear a smoking jacket all the time.

  19. Report: Nuggets find market drying up for huge Carmelo Anthony deal

    Oct 6, 2010, 10:40 PM EDT

    The Nuggets are asking a lot for Carmelo Anthony in a trade: good young players and draft picks for the future, enough established talent to keep them in the playoffs now, plus cap relief that keeps them below the luxury tax. And a date with Scarlett Johansson. And a DeLorean that can travel through time.…

  20. NBA may take preseason games to Brazil in next couple years

    Oct 6, 2010, 8:12 PM EDT

    Brazil already has the World Cup and Olympics coming to its shores, and David Stern wants the NBA to be part of the wave, too. The NBA preseason tour may go to Brazil in the coming years, David Stern said before today’s Knicks and Timberwolves and Paris, according to the Associated Press. He said the…
