  1. Avery Johnson has one more Super Bowl ring than Dan Marino

    Sep 3, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Avery Johnson has a chip, one NBA Championship ring. He got it as a member of the 1999 San Antonio Spurs. Oh, and now he’s got a Super Bowl ring. Yes, 5’7″, 175 soaking wet Johnson has an NFL Championship ring. Yahoo’s Marc Spears took the picture and linked to it in a tweet —…

  2. Lamar Odom going for two World Championships in one year. Beat that Kobe.

    Sep 3, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    I joke that the only way to make Lakers fans happy is to win two championships a year. Lamar Odom is trying to do just that. Odom is the starting center for USA Basketball (even if he shouldn’t be) as it heads into the knockout phase of the World Championships. Odom told Broderick Turner of…

  3. Report: J.R. Giddens also heading to Sacramento for training camp

    Sep 3, 2010, 4:39 PM EDT

    The Kings are clearly exploring their options going into camp, and according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports, former Celtic (and more recently, Mavericks’ Summer Leaguer) J.R. Giddens will be joining free agent cast-off Luther Head in Sacramento for training camp. Giddens, too, was signed to a make-good, non-guaranteed contract, but will try to…

  4. Chase Budinger sprains ankle, will be resting the next few weeks

    Sep 3, 2010, 3:48 PM EDT

    Now is the time of year when NBA players are working hard on their conditioning and their game. Training camps open in just a little more than three weeks and players want to come in close to game conditioning. Chase Budinger is going to miss that target in Houston. The Rockets are saying Budinger has…

  5. Forget starting, Kevin Love and Eric Gordon need to be finishing for Team USA

    Sep 3, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    Playtime is over boys and girls — things are now serious for Team USA. Well, maybe not against Angola but after that. Lose one and you’re done. Sixteen teams in a knockout tournament for the World Championship. There can be no more bad games, it’s time to put your best players out there for the…

  6. Pacers not letting Lance Stephenson work out at Conseco Fieldhouse

    Sep 3, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    After Summer League we were singing his praises — albeit more as a scorer than a point guard — then after the big trade that brought Darren Collison to Indiana we wondered: Where does Lance Stephenson fit in? He is an intriguing player. The Pacers thought so too. Then he allegedly threw his girlfriend down…

  7. Report: Luther Head invited to Kings camp on a partially guaranteed contract

    Sep 3, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    Luther Head was in Indiana last year, but the combo guard couldn’t really get a lot of run on a team that wanted to run. Then it looked like the Hornets were going to take him, until Jeff Bower got the boot as GM the new regime went with the old “he failed the physical”…

  8. Celtics fans welcome back Delonte West with open arms

    Sep 3, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Like a prodigal son, Boston fans — and Danny Ainge is among those fans — are welcoming back Delonte West with open arms. The fatted calf is running scared right about now. Delonte is back to a place where he had his best seasons — in the pre Big 3 era in Boston West was…

  9. Shaq the wedding crasher

    Sep 3, 2010, 12:02 PM EDT

    The only people to crash my wedding were relatives who didn’t get an invite for a reason, but it’s a celebration so you welcome everyone. Kristen and Wes Schifone have a way, way better story. One they told to NESN in Boston. Shaquille O’Neal wandered into their wedding at the Four Seasons, underdressed and not…

  10. Omri Casspi wants peace in the Middle East, using basketball to bring it

    Sep 3, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    In Washington D.C. a bunch of people in expensive suits are sitting around a table talking about a piece of paper that it is hoped will bring some stability and peace to the Middle East. Omri Casspi is on the ground, in Israel, talking to youth from his nation and Palestine, playing basketball with them,…

  11. LeBron James is underpaid

    Sep 3, 2010, 10:33 AM EDT

    While LeBron James was still deciding where to take his talents, a fun bar stool/message board discussion was how much would LeBron be offered in a non-capped open market? $30 million a year? $40 million? But the market is capped, and LeBron will start making $14.5 million this season. Which is a real bargain, according…

  12. Dee Brown coming to Dallas Mavericks camp

    Sep 3, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    Dee Brown has flitted around the edges of the NBA —  just in or just out –since he left Illinois four years ago (he was the other guy in the backcourt with Deron Williams). This year he wants back in and tweeted that he will be headed to the Dallas Mavericks training camp this fall.…

  13. George Karl cleared by doctors, will be back on Nuggets bench

    Sep 3, 2010, 9:08 AM EDT

    This may be the best news we’ve heard all summer. From the Denver Post comes the official word from coach George Karl. “It’s official,” George Karl said Thursday just before taking off for a long Labor Day weekend with family. “I’ve been cleared to go for it. My PET scan came back great.” Karl will…

  14. Knicks still have interest in Rudy Fernandez, Blazers have little interest in Knicks

    Sep 3, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

    Note to agents: Public pressure isn’t going to work on Rich Cho. Rudy Fernandez wants out of Portland, and both he and his agent Andy Miller made it very clear and very public that was the case. That started before but picked up steam after Cho was brought in to make the basketball decisions in…

  15. Hawks Al Horford says he'll "go to war" with what he's got

    Sep 3, 2010, 3:31 AM EDT

    It was Al Horford who sad that if the Atlanta Hawks were really serious about contending, they would go big and get him some help in the paint. Didn’t happen. So now what did Horford tell the Atlanta Journal Constitution about his situation? “I am going to war with who I’ve got,” Al said Well,…

  16. Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Mark Cuban all sued by crazy Kentucky inmate

    Sep 2, 2010, 8:06 PM EDT

    Meet Jonathan Lee Riches. He’s a bit of a legend (in the urban sense) of the legal and penal systems. His claim to fame is not the simple wire fraud that has him behind bars. See, what Riches likes to do is file lawsuits from his prison cell. Handwritten screeds that are filled with courts…

  17. Eric Gordon's doing what Eric Gordon's always done, just for a better team

    Sep 2, 2010, 7:09 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon has played quite well as a member of Team USA. Even though he hasn’t been all that consistent (but then again, Durant notwithstanding, who has?), Gordon has been the Americans’ most prolific three-point shooter in the World Championships thus far. He shoots the international three with ease, and with so much attention being…

  18. World Championship knockout rounds set, USA has a tough road ahead

    Sep 2, 2010, 6:40 PM EDT

    There are supposed to be rewards for winning your group-play bracket at the FIBA World Championships. And there are for the USA — it’s first round game is against Angola on Monday. Very winnable. Then the sledding gets tough. It could have been worse. But tough. Here’s the lineup. Saturday we get the two best…

  19. Kevin Love talks about his development

    Sep 2, 2010, 6:09 PM EDT

    It’s not a great time to be a Minnesota Timberwolves fan. The team went 15-67 last season. #6 overall pick Jonny Flynn didn’t look like he deserved to be picked ahead of Stephen Curry, Brandon Jennings, Ty Lawson, or Darren Collison. Al Jefferson is a member of the Jazz, and the Timberwolves didn’t get much…

  20. Hawks sign free agent center Etan Thomas

    Sep 2, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    According to the Atlanta Hawks’ PR department, the team has signed free agent center Etan Thomas to a contract.  The 32-year old Thomas played in 23 games for the Thunder last season, averaging 3.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks per game in 14 minutes per game.
