  1. Larry Bird issues statement, Lance Stephenson wants to talk to him

    Aug 18, 2010, 10:18 AM EDT

    On Oct. 19, Lance Stephenson will have to appear in a New York court to face charges of assault, reckless endangerment and menacing after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend and the mother of his child, throwing her down a flight of stairs according to police. Those legal issues should be at the front of Stephenson’s…

  2. Brandon Roy apologizes for appearance in marijuana positive rap video

    Aug 18, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy is pretty late to the “appear in a rap video” trend. If pasty white Mark Cuban is doing one before you, you are tardy. But Roy — along with Atlanta’s Jamal Crawford — is in the new video for Cali & Cavalli’s “What They Want,” which first showed up over at BlazersEdge. The…

  3. LeBron James says his elbow is still not right

    Aug 18, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    There are enough conspiracy theories around LeBron’s elbow that I’m convinced it was injured by the man in the grassy knoll. While LeBron doubters have called it imagined, in a much-overlooked part of the GQ interview James said the elbow still bothered him (the interviews took place in July). “I go out there and get…

  4. One man puts together the entire NBA schedule. And you thought a Rubik's Cube was hard.

    Aug 17, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    This makes a 1,000 piece puzzle of a polar bear on a snowy landscape look like child’s play. Matt Winick makes the NBA schedule. Him and a computer. No team of guys slaving over diagrams and flipping through reems of information. Well, there are reems of information, but just one guy. Kevin Arnovitz did a…

  5. Tyreke Evans is much worse at golf than Charles Barkley. Seriously.

    Aug 17, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    There was a time late last season when I was convinced Tyreke Evans could do anything. I have now taken golf off that list. (via Hooped Up) Things DeMarcus Cousins is sure to bring up include…

  6. Paul Pierce thinks Sheed could come back in February. Sheed disagrees.

    Aug 17, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace is going to be like Elvis this year. Jim Morrison. Tupac. He will not be dead and there will be sightings of him — and the return of his career — all over the place. Particularly Boston, as Sheed will still be living in the city. The first one of those came from…

  7. Ron Artest: "I partied hard as hell"

    Aug 17, 2010, 7:48 PM EDT

    No Laker has enjoyed the spoils of being a champion this summer like Ron Artest. Then again, no Laker earned the right to party with a great Game 7 of the finals like Ron Artest. And party Ron Artest has, as he said in an interview with FanHouse. It’s been fun — a little too…

  8. NCAA President wants the NBA to adopt baseball-like draft rules

    Aug 17, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

    It’s been a couple of years since the NBA passed its “one-and-done” rule to prevent players from coming straight into the NBA from high school, and so far things have worked out pretty well. Kevin Durant, John Wall, and Derrick Rose all got to raise their national profiles significantly before becoming top-two picks, which paid…

  9. Yes, J.R. Smith does have a new neck tattoo

    Aug 17, 2010, 5:14 PM EDT

    There it is, in all its glory — courtesy of J.R. Smith’s twitter account, a picture of the rainbow-lettered “Swish” that Nuggets swingman J.R. Smith managed to fit in between his Adam’s apple and his chin.  Considering Smith already has multiple neck tattoos, including an overlapping set of tattoos on his Adam’s Apple, this has…

  10. Atlanta Hawks have no interest Earl Boykins

    Aug 17, 2010, 5:05 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:05 pm: Few teams carry three pure point guards on their roster. The Hawks will not be one of them. The much trusted Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal Constitution shoots down the idea of Hawks interest in Boykins. For one, from everything I’ve heard the Hawks aren’t really interested in adding another guard.…

  11. Report: The Knicks may have made an offer for Carmelo Anthony, but he likes Orlando, too

    Aug 17, 2010, 4:41 PM EDT

    We said this morning that Carmelo Anthony needs to make his intentions clear to Denver — sign the extension or tell them to trade him. But maybe he has, as Ken Berger suggests at CBSSports today. If he has, things are still not going to move quickly because right now Denver is without a general…

  12. The Utah Jazz really did upgrade their uniforms

    Aug 17, 2010, 3:57 PM EDT

    This is the time of year when teams unveil their “new” uniforms, which usually is a couple of minor changes to the old uniform around the neck line, or using a different numbers font. Not thrilling, but it’s good enough for a press release and an off-season party. But the Utah Jazz have made some…

  13. God did not come down and take Tracy McGrady's game away. According to McGrady.

    Aug 17, 2010, 3:10 PM EDT

    There are plenty of Tracy McGrady doubters out there. Doubts about his health, his age, his game. Plenty of doubters in the media, plenty of them in NBA front offices (some of whom worked him out then had more doubts). But McGrady doesn’t doubt himself. And he told WDFN in Detroit that he will be…

  14. Darren Collison fractures finger on shooting hand, out three to four weeks

    Aug 17, 2010, 2:48 PM EDT

    Indiana finally got the point guard they needed, and it took just six days for him to get injured. Somebody just can’t catch a break from the basketball gods. Darren Collison has fractured a finger on his shooting hand, according to Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star. The good news is this is something that…

  15. Clippers owner Sterling remains confused why his team doesn't win, attract big names

    Aug 17, 2010, 2:26 PM EDT

    It’s easy to go for the easy joke when talking about Donald Sterling, owner of the Clippers. Too easy. The snark almost writes itself. And we do love our snark in these parts. But what’s genuinely amazing about interviews with him is how disconnected from the reality on the ground he seems to be. His…

  16. Magic Johnson ready to move on from Lakers, head up an ownership group

    Aug 17, 2010, 1:54 PM EDT

    Magic Johnson’s name has come up in Golden State when that team was for sale. It has come up in connection with Detroit and the sale of the Pistons. And it is going to come up again, because Magic wants to run an NBA franchise, he told Scott Howard-Cooper of NBA.com. And he knows that…

  17. Caron Butler is tired of being on entertaining teams, he'll take dull and a ring

    Aug 17, 2010, 12:56 PM EDT

    Variations of this theme seem to play out wherever Caron Butler goes. Last season heading into the playoffs, the Dallas Mavericks looked like the team ready to test the Lakers. Dallas was the two seed, they had won 7 of 10 including five in a row. There was a quiet, veteran confidence around the team.…

  18. LeBron James talking clothes. But it's about the person that's in them.

    Aug 17, 2010, 12:33 PM EDT

    We talked about GQ publishing an in depth piece on the Summer of LeBron in its September issue, and as this is a basketball blog we talked about the basketball stuff. But as they are GQ, they talk about the clothes stuff, too. As a blogger, I am in no position to comment on fashion…

  19. LeBron may have chosen Miami to recreate high school. But he has no regrets.

    Aug 17, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Regrets? Nope. LeBron James is chronicled in the latest issue of GQ, by author J.R. Moehringer, who had the seats closest to ringside for the circus that was the Summer of LeBron. He has a lot of insights, he tries to answer the hardest questions. Like, what would LeBron change if he had it to…

  20. Carmelo Anthony needs to figure out then announce his intentions, whatever they are

    Aug 17, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    This is where we have come to — the Denver Nuggets and team fans not wanting to get “LeBron’d.” It’s the result of a few factors: the free agency circus of this summer, the fact that Carmelo Anthony has not yet signed an extension with the Nuggets, and a ton of people willing to speculate.…
