  1. Kevin Garnett's intensity too much for Rondo — even at media day

    Sep 28, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Pretty classic video from Celtics media day, with Rajon Rondo trying to do an interview while Kevin Garnett goes, well, Kevin Garnett in the other room. (hat tip to Trey “where you goin?” Kerby at Ball Don’t Lie)

  2. Winderman: Heat not hosting your ordinary training camp

    Sep 28, 2010, 7:51 PM EDT

    So how do you get to the Heat’s secluded training camp in the Florida Panhandle? Well, from most places, you get there by connecting through Atlanta. And then, from the airport, you get there by driving past one Waffle House, then another, and then another. But that actually doesn’t get you anywhere, at least not…

  3. Video: Heat at media day, talking team

    Sep 28, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    We’ve been telling you what has been going on with the Heat the last couple days, but here are the words of the men themselves at Heat media day in Miami Monday. Before they headed off to an Air Force Base training camp.

  4. Thunder's Nick Collison out indefinitely with bone bruise on knee

    Sep 28, 2010, 5:31 PM EDT

    Nick Collison is not a guy that goes down easily, he has played at least 71 games each of the last four years. Last season he did it through a number of nagging injuries that might have kept other guys out. But he is out indefinitely now and will miss at least some of camp…

  5. Carmelo Anthony calls court his "safe haven" as four-team trade dies

    Sep 28, 2010, 4:35 PM EDT

    The trade rumors are still there — even as the much-discussed four-team trade is dead. The talk will not die no matter what happens with this round of rumors, there will be another and another and… Carmelo Anthony wants to get away from those rumors. Probably more than he wants to get away from Denver.…

  6. Anderson Varejao excused from Cavaliers camp due to family emergency

    Sep 28, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Anderson Varejao is missing the start of Cavaliers camp due after being given leave to deal with a death in the family. Varejao is currently heading back to his native Brazil but should be back after a few days to resume training. Varejao did twist his ankle slightly on the first day of camp. Although…

  7. Jason Kidd calls "B.S." on report he tried to talk 'Melo out of New Jersey

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:58 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony clearly is having second thoughts about taking his talents to New Jersey. Can’t imagine why. We just listened to Springsteen’s “Born To Run” and he made it sound like such a wonderful place. Then there was the report from Sam Amick of FanHouse that Jason Kidd warned Melo about the perils of New…

  8. Timberwolves using Michael Beasley at small forward, they may want to ask Miami about that

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:29 PM EDT

    Reports out of Timberwolves camp say that Michael Beasley is playing the three spot, according to the Pioneer Press. Which makes some sense when you think Kevin Love needs to be the starting power forward for Minnesota. Except… Maybe the T-Wolves should call up the Heat and ask how Beasley worked out at the three…

  9. Eduardo Najera out three weeks with hernia surgery

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    Bobcats forward Eduardo Najera will miss most of training camp as he recovers from surgery to repair a sports hernia. The surgery took place Sept. 10 and he should be out three more weeks. That’s not going to help Najera’s effort to get minutes. He was already fighting guys like Tyrus Thomas, Boris Diaw, Derrick…

  10. Greg Oden: "Is there any proof that I'm a bust?"

    Sep 28, 2010, 2:51 PM EDT

    This much is clear: Greg Oden has yet to work out like the Portland Trail Blazers had hoped. Three years into his NBA career he has played 82 games and had multiple injuries and surgeries to his knees. But is he a bust? Oden himself took exception to that characterization while speaking with Jason Quick…

  11. Heat first practice "intense," LeBron has ice on elbow

    Sep 28, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    There was no discussion of it and it is probably nothing, but you had to notice — LeBron James had an ice pack on his right elbow, the one that gave him problems though the playoffs, after the Heat’s first day of practice Tuesday. What should we read into that? Not much. NBA teams go…

  12. NBA Previews: The whole league from PBT

    Sep 28, 2010, 1:51 PM EDT

    The PBT previews have started. We are working our way through The Association, division by division, through all 30 teams. Looking at what happened this summer, what you’re impossible fan dreams are, and we’re looking at reality. To make it easy for you to follow, here are the previews we have done so far —…

  13. Shaun Livingston already dealing with fluid on the knee

    Sep 28, 2010, 1:44 PM EDT

    I’m rooting for Shaun Livingston to make it. I know, media are supposed to be objective yada yada yada… we root for some things. We have favorites (and no, probably not the Heat or Lakers or whoever you think in most cases). I want Livingston to make it. But already there are setbacks. He has…

  14. NBA Season Preview: Orlando Magic

    Sep 28, 2010, 1:08 PM EDT

    Last season: 59-23, the second seed in the East. In the playoffs they Magic swept past the Bobcats and Hawks before running into the buzz saw that was the Celtics and losing in the Eastern Conference Finals. Head Coach: Stan Van Gundy, one of the best going and probably funnier than his brother. Key Departures:…

  15. LeBron James' house is nicer than yours

    Sep 28, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    In case you were worried that LeBron James would be sleeping on a cot at American Airlines Arena, you can relax. The King has found his castle. NBCMiami.com has pictures of the home that you can’t afford (well, except for you, Mr. Cuban). It’s in Coconut Grove, the Hughes Cove neighborhood, and went for a…

  16. NBA season ticket sales up to start season

    Sep 28, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Add a check to the players’ side of the column in the ongoing Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations… NBA season ticket sales are well up over a year ago and that could mean $100 million more in revenue for the league, according to the South Florida Business Journal. Through Sept. 22, NBA teams had sold more…

  17. Derrick Rose thinks he can be MVP material

    Sep 28, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose has serious game. He has the work ethic. He knew the biggest hole in that game was a consistent three-point shot, so he spent all summer working on it. He was certainly more confident with the shot at the FIBA World Championships. Of course, he only hit 27.5 percent of his threes (from…

  18. Meet the new, business-like Gilbert Arenas

    Sep 28, 2010, 11:11 AM EDT

      Agent Zero was not just a player, he was a persona. Gilbert Arenas was personality, fun, carefree and exuberant off the court and on. A real character in an increasingly corporate league. Not any more. A bearded Gilbert Arenas was very business like at Wizards camp — Michael Lee of the Washington post described…

  19. Heat leave Miami for a little peace, but the throng follows

    Sep 28, 2010, 10:43 AM EDT

    The Miami Heat plane had plenty of radar tracking it as it landed at 10 p.m. last night at Eglin Air Force Base. As the team came down the stairs, they were greeted by a crowd that had been there three hours to see them. Such is the life of the Miami Heat now —…

  20. Zach Randolph wants Pau Gasol-like deal, Grizzlies being patient

    Sep 28, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    The Grizzlies are happy with Zach Randolph, they really are. Which is a pretty dramatic change from his last couple of stops. So it makes sense that the two sides have had some preliminary conversations about a contract extension, there is interest on both sides according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal. But on Randolph’s side,…
