  1. Darius Miles gets workout with Spurs

    Aug 31, 2010, 8:58 PM EDT

    Darius Miles wants the chance to prove his knees can hold up for another NBA campaign after multiple microfracture surgeries. And that those knees are allowing him to move well enough to bring back some of his once-promising game. It’s going to take a lot of proving. But the San Antonio Spurs are taking a…

  2. FIBA World Championships: Lithuania upsets Spain, 76-73 (and that's not good for the USA)

    Aug 31, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    Maybe Spain misses Paul Gasol more than we thought. After dropping their first game to France it was expected Spain would wake up and start to roll, but on Tuesday they blew an 18-point third quarter lead, were outscored 23-9 in the fourth quarter and fell to Lithuania 76-73. Good you say. The other co-favorite…

  3. Kevin Love, doing the USA's dirty work in Turkey

    Aug 31, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Love sat on the bench for most of the second half in the USA’s skin-of-their-teeth win over Brazil, while Lamar Odom played. Frankly, we were a little confused. Love has played very well in this FIBA World Championships. He has outworked the other team for rebounds, his outlet passes are the best in the…

  4. New Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri says he wants to keep Anthony in Denver

    Aug 31, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Denver’s new general manager Masai Ujiri held his introductory press conference today. Guess what most of the questions were about? No, not how Modern Family could win the Emmy for best comedy when it’s not really that funny. It was about ‘Melo and trades. Here are his answers. Nothing stunning or even really new there.…

  5. Tyreke Evans once had a jumper, Calipari may have lost it, now Reke wants it back

    Aug 31, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    You’ve seen the video from this summer: Tyreke Evans in the gym just knocking down three after three. But have you seen the video of Tyreke Evans just knocking down jumpers from high school? Sam Amick of FanHouse has, because he was in Evans’ house when the brothers that have always been by Evans’ side…

  6. Will the Celtics defense be as good next year?

    Aug 31, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    For all the talk about getting the old gang back together in Boston for one more run, it isn’t exactly the same old gang that is coming back next year. And the changes that are coming could cut right to the core of what won Boston one title and almost two — great defense. Jeff…

  7. Knicks to start tall lineup, maybe with Ronny Turiaf at center

    Aug 31, 2010, 1:57 PM EDT

    What do we really know about the Knicks starting lineup? Raymond Felton at the one, Amare Stoudemire at the four and… well, this is why Mike D’Antoni gets paid the big bucks. There is a lot more talent on the Knicks roster, and a lot more versatile talent this season, which gives D’Antoni options. Alan…

  8. Iguodala thinks Kevin Durant will score more than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    Aug 31, 2010, 1:02 PM EDT

    You know you can score the rock when people start throwing your name around with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (the NBA’s all-time leading scorer).That’s what Andre Iguodala did with Kevin Durant at Comcast Philadelphia. (via Fan Nation) “Kevin Durant will be the NBA’s all-time leading scorer when it’s all said and done,” Iguodala said emphatically. “He loves…

  9. Report: Derek Fisher to address the New Orleans Saints before first game

    Aug 31, 2010, 12:24 PM EDT

    Derek Fisher is not a big man. He’s not athletically gifted by NBA standards. He’s never been a spectacular defender or shooter. But the man has five rings. He’s repeated as champion three times now, and he had key roles in all of them. His unwavering self-confidence allows him to step up in pressure situations…

  10. Andre Iguodala knows it's all about the defense for USA Basketball

    Aug 31, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

    You can go ahead and say the USA’s fortunate win over Brazil put their weaknesses on display for the world and showed why this team will be in trouble against the globe’s other elite squads. The guys on the team can’t look at it that way. Andre Iguodala has been keeping a diary for the…

  11. The Kings may want Carmelo Anthony. The question is will 'Melo want the Kings?

    Aug 31, 2010, 11:20 AM EDT

    The Sacramento King’s have not come up on previous lists, but they make sense as a team that would be interested in Carmelo Anthony. Which is why an unsourced rumor in the Sacramento Bee makes some sense. If and when the Denver Nuggets commit to a sign-and-trade for Carmelo Anthony, the Kings will thrust themselves…

  12. Rockets plan to be cautious with Yao Ming's playing time. No kidding.

    Aug 31, 2010, 10:48 AM EDT

    Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey is a smart man. Not that it takes a smart man to realize they need to be cautious with Yao Ming’s health, to keep his minutes down and minimize the risk. I mean, I figured it out and I’m a blogger. Yes, doctors have cleared Yao, his foot is fully…

  13. Hawks moves mean pick Pape Sy will be at camp, will Jamal Crawford be?

    Aug 31, 2010, 9:54 AM EDT

    This could be a dull, standard little NBA transaction. But in the context of everything else going on with the Hawks, it could have bigger implications. Although it’s hard to say because we know little about Pape Sy. He apparently has been in the witness relocation program for prospects. The facts are that the Hawks…

  14. LeBron James, Mo Williams talk it out

    Aug 31, 2010, 9:07 AM EDT

    In the wake of all the wailing and gnashing of teeth after LeBron James made his announcement about his talents, one set of tweets in particular stood out: Cavaliers teammate Mo Williams — one of LeBron’s closer friends on the team — felt hurt and said so in his twitter account. ”We were so damn…

  15. FIBA World Championships, Day 3: Where national rivalries spill on to the court

    Aug 31, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    We know the USA was tested — and we’ve questioned Coach K’s rotations — but what else was going on Monday in Turkey? Glad you asked. Slovenia 91, Croatia 84: In an intense battle of rivals, Croatia had a five-point lead at halftime. Then NBA players Bostjan Nachbar and Goran Dragic scored 11 points as…

  16. Marcus Jordan tweeted about underage tweeting, gambling

    Aug 30, 2010, 11:31 PM EDT

    According to the Associated Press, MGM Resorts International may face an investigation after Michael Jordan’s 19-year old son tweeted about spending $35,000 at the Haze nightclub in the Aria resort and casino: Jordan’s 19-year-old son Marcus Jordan tweeted Aug. 20 about spending $35,000 at Haze at Aria Resort & Casino. “Last night was stupid… 35K…

  17. Rick Fox to appear on Dancing With the Stars, because of course he is

    Aug 30, 2010, 11:06 PM EDT

    According to multiple sources, retired NBA pro and current actor/famous person Rick Fox will compete on the 2010 Fall season of the ultra-popular “Dancing With the Stars.”  Ever since he appeared in 1994’s “Blue Chips,” Fox has been a prolific actor. His work includes a role in Spike Lee’s “He Got Game,” the 2003 movie…

  18. Shaq in the city

    Aug 30, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    Is there a better idea then turning Shaquille O’Neal loose in a city and following him around with cameras? No, no there isn’t. That’s what the Boston Globe did. What we learn is that he is still a big person — one not really built for historic doorways and stoops — and a big personality…

  19. Suns bring back Dwayne Jones after sending him to Toronto

    Aug 30, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Dwayne Jones was technically a part of the trade that sent Hedo Turkoglu to Phoenix and Leandro Barbosa to Toronto, though you probably wouldn’t know it. Jones’ career thus far has consisted of bench-riding and D-League excellence, and his inclusion in the Suns-Raps deal was merely a salary-matching formality. Toronto waived him soon after, and…
