    Alan Iverson playing in Turkey? It seems to have come to that after he can find no interest in the NBA. Iverson’s representatives and a Turkish club are now in serious negotiations. Yahoo Sports spoke to Iverson’s agent. “We are in very serious negotiations with [Besiktas],” Iverson’s business manager Gary Moore told Yahoo! Sports. “Istanbul…

  2. The newer, more efficient Gilbert Arenas

    Oct 11, 2010, 1:13 PM EDT

    Arenas_drive

    All the talk this preseason has been about changes in Gilbert Arenas the personality (although we suspect the new, business-like Arenas is more about what he shows the media than teammates), but we have missed the change in Gilbert Arenas the player. Gone is Agent Zero the gunner, replaced by a much more efficient player,…

  3. Ron Artest just says no

    Los Angeles Lakers Victory Parade

    On the California ballot next month is a measure that would legalize marijuana use in the state. Not just medical marijuana, we’re talking flat out legalize. Which if passed (two recent polls had it leading, with younger voters supporting it overwhelmingly, across party lines) will lead to fun legal battles with the federal government. Your…

  4. What does New Orleans 54-point preseason loss mean?

    We keep telling you not to read too much into preseason games — coaches are resting key players, experimenting with lineups, giving quality minutes to D-League guys and there just generally is not a sense of urgency. It’s a scrimmage, not a game. But when you get really blown out by a high school like…

  5. Andrew Bogut: “I might not be 100% the whole year”

    Oct 11, 2010, 11:23 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut was cleared to play by doctors, but since has missed the three preseason games the Milwaukee Bucks have played due to swelling and soreness in his surgically repaired right arm and hand. Which is not a shock, when you thing back to the gruesome injury he suffered last April. Bogut also is realizing…

  6. LeBron on his elbow: “It was pretty bad.”

    LeBron James has been pretty tight lipped about his elbow injury last season, which led to plenty of speculation about what really happened. But LeBron opened up a little to Lang Whitaker of SLAM (something Tom Ziller of FanHouse noted happened a little a while ago but only appeared in the printed magazine, not online,…

  7. Finally an accurate passer in Cowboy Stadium — new Dude Perfect trick shot

    Oct 11, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Tell me the Cowboys couldn’t use a guy who could throw like this behind Romo.

  8. Blazer bring in Stephen Hill for camp to shore up depleted front court

    After another Blazers center went down in camp, they needed another big body for practice — a guy not likely to make the team but one to run through drills and the like. Stephen Hill, come on down, according to the Oregonian. Hill is a 7’0” center out of Arkansas who played on the Blazers’…

  9. Hornets sale not dead yet, just world’s slowest transaction

    Oct 11, 2010, 9:19 AM EDT

    Image (1) hornets_logo-thumb-250x269-11676.gif for post 1976

    Yesterday we passed along a New York Daily News report that the sale of the New Orleans Hornets was dead, but that may just have been wishful New York thinking about ways to get Chris Paul. Turns out the deal is not dead… dragging out forever, sure. But not dead. J. Michael Falgoust of the…

  10. Marcus Camby plans to play two more seasons. After that, who knows?

    Oct 11, 2010, 8:21 AM EDT

    Camby_Nash

    If Portland is going rise up and challenge the Lakers in the West, Marcus Camby is going to have to play a big role. We have no idea what kind of role Greg Oden will play, and if he is not protecting the rim then Camby must. At least for another two seasons. After that,…

  11. Report: Andre Miller brought in to now-dead Melo trade talks

    Oct 10, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    millertrade

    This is Vescey-time, so get your grain of salt ready. The “notable” writer for the New York Post reports today that during the final stages of the four-team deal for Carmelo Anthony to be shipped to the Nets, the Blazers were involved in talks. Vescey reports that Charlotte was swapped out with Portland, with Portland…

  12. Best part of NBA 2K11 for Ron Artest? His song.

    Oct 10, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) artestwins.jpg for post 2614

    “I’m done with music. I’m a success.” Ron Artest is not done with music. He was joking around after talking about how his song Champions is going to sell one million copies — because it is part of the soundtrack for NBA 2K11. He was talking with the amazing Kevin Ding of the Orange County…

  13. Sale of Hornets falls through. Where does that leave Chris Paul?

    Oct 10, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Image (1) chris-paul-hornets-072610jpg-70df13389f9ce9d1-thumb-250x208-18051.jpg for post 3631

    The long-stalled sale of the New Orleans Hornets now seems to officially be dead. Which may make it less likely Chris Paul gets traded in the near term. Hornets’ owner George Shinn had reached an agreement in principle to sell the team to minority owner Gary Chouest, but that deal fell through as they tried…

  14. DeMarcus Cousins plans on going at Derrick Favors’ neck

    Oct 10, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    cousinsneck

    DeMarcus Cousins is not in this league to make friends. That was readily apparent from summer league, where the combustible rook was often jawing with both opponents and teammates, and swinging the odd elbow. But his early preseason results have been significantly impressive, and he’s got bigger plans down the line, especially for the players…

  15. Are the Bulls investigating Carlos Boozer’s injury?

    Oct 10, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    boozerbulls

    When Carlos Boozer was lost for two months after breaking his hand at home, the usual questions arose. How did it happen? When did it happen? Why was there a bag on your floor? What kind of bag? Did it have a floral print? You know, the essentials. Well, after Monta Ellis’ little rodeo with…

  16. Tyler Hansbrough is back after season-long bout with vertigo

    Oct 10, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Amir Johnson

    It was such a weird injury. First it was described as a concussion. Then an inner ear infection. And then finally, vertigo. Tyler Hansbrough had vertigo, and it stuck with him all the way through season, amputating his rookie year to just 29 games. He wasn’t cleared for practice until a week before training camp,…

  17. The Celtics bond in the shadow of the Green Monster

    Oct 10, 2010, 9:21 AM EDT

    fenway

    The Celtics are getting back to that whole “chemistry first” thing that took them so far in 2008. That’s been a primary focus for them at camp and in the preseason, trying to get close to one another like the “Ubuntu” crowd was two years ago.  They’ve spent a lot of nights just doing team…

  18. Al Harrington to miss two weeks with a foot injury, return just in time for the regular season opener

    Oct 10, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    Al Harrington

    The Denver Nuggets are already without their starting power forward from last season due to a knee injury, and now they’ll also lose their monumental off-season acquisition for the remainder of the preseason. Al Harrington was the one significant piece the Nuggets added this summer, but according to the Associated Press, they’ll be without his…

  19. Kyle Lowry to miss one more game with bone bruise

    Oct 10, 2010, 4:49 AM EDT

    Kyle Lowry, James Singleton

    Kyle Lowry missed Saturday’s game against the Indiana Pacers, and according to the Associated Press, he’s due to miss one more game — Houston’s match-up with Cleveland later tonight — before returning to the lineup for the Rockets. An MRI revealed a bruise on Lowry’s right knee, and while that injury isn’t particularly serious, it…

  20. Clippers cut Jake Voskuhl and Jon Scheyer

    Oct 9, 2010, 10:09 PM EDT

    Scheyer

    The Clippers made three additions to the free agent pool on Saturday, including two notable names. According to Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports, L.A. has parted ways with NBA vet Jake Voskuhl, Dukie Jon Scheyer, and “other guy” Stephen Dennis. Voskuhl was last seen — in an official NBA capacity, at least — as a…
