  1. Miami is a defensive juggernaut. But will it last?

    Oct 30, 2010, 2:53 PM EDT

    Heat_defense

    Right now, the Miami Heat are the best defensive team in basketball. Yes, we know — you have to be careful about what kind of conclusions you draw from a team three games into a season. Small sample size alert. And it also depends on how you count the numbers — Basketball-Reference has them the…

  2. Tony Parker signs multi-year extension with the Spurs

    Tony Parker is going to stay a Spur. Parker has signed a four year, $50 million deal to remain with San Antonio. Parker is in his 10th NBA season but is just 28 years old. The point guard has been part of the core of the Spurs title teams, but there was speculation that he…

  3. Rajon Rondo dropin’ dimes

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/66rQIH5s76w?version=3" height="240" width="320" /]

    Rajon Rondo had 24 assists last night as the Knicks went away from the old “make Rondo the shooter” book. And the Knicks lost. Somebody wrote the book for a reason. On another note: Are the first two clips here really assists? He makes the pass then the player (Pierce then Davis) put the ball…

  4. Rudy Fernandez to play in Madison Square Garden… but not as a Knick

    Oct 30, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    RFernandez-Jumper

    Rudy Fernandez finally gets to play a game in Madison Square Garden tonight. He’s wanted that, his agents have pushed for that all summer (pushed hard enough to get him fined, twice). Of course, they pushed for him to be a Knick, instead he comes in as part of the visiting Portland Trail Blazers. The…

  5. Report: Andre Iguodala wants winning or a trade out of Philadelphia

    Oct 30, 2010, 10:46 AM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Philadelphia has been unimpressive so far this season, two losses and generally looking pretty blah. You’ve got new head coach Doug Collins saying, “there’s more work to be done here than I thought.” Fans are down o the team. It’s not good. After spending the summer with USA Basketball, Andre Iguodala is not down with…

  6. Beaubois may be out until December, so says Nowitzki

    Oct 30, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    roddybeaubois

    Dirk Nowitzki is not a doctor. He does not even play one on television. But we’re not getting a lot of reports from Dallas doctors on the recovery of Roddy Beaubois, so when Nowitzki says something, we listen. And he said something to Art Garcia of NBA.com. “Obviously, we’re all waiting on Roddy,” Nowitzki said.…

  7. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Where it was like Miami’s dream come true

    Oct 30, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    Wade_James_Bosh3

    What you missed while trying to find the most inappropriate Halloween costume ever for your child…. Heat 96, Magic 70: Before the season Doc Rivers said how good Miami ended up being would depend on how well they defend. With LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh they would score, but could they defend as…

  8. It’s official, Allen Iverson is in Turkey, now an ambassador of the game

    Oct 29, 2010, 11:21 PM EDT

    Iverson_turkey

    Just look at the photo from this press conference today, announcing Allen Iverson official signing a two-year deal with Besiktas Cola Turka in the Turkish league. (via Iverson’s site) Does anyone look happy? Iverson said he was happy to go, he has the chance now to be a basketball ambassador to the world. He’ll make…

  9. LeBron James — now with fangs

    Oct 29, 2010, 10:17 PM EDT

    LeBron_Fangs

    If you were watching closely tonight — like high-def television and basketball obsessed close — you noticed something different about LeBron James tonight in the game against the Magic. He had fangs. His mouthpiece had a Halloween theme, as you can see from this picture tweeted by CNBC’s Darren Rovell. I’d say it’s kind of…

  10. Magic Johnson talks with Miami Dolphins about celebrity owner role

    Oct 29, 2010, 8:56 PM EDT

    Image (1) magic-johnson-thumb-250x166-16283.jpg for post 3243

    Serena and Venus Williams own a piece of the Miami Dolphins. So does Gloria Estefan, Fergie (from Black Eyed Peas) and Marc Anthony. It’s the Dolphins celebrity owner club, part of the South Beach party atmosphere at Dolphins games (all the better to distract people from Chad Henne and that Miami offense). Now Magic Johnson…

  11. Delonte West, Von Wafer fight after Celtics practice

    Oct 29, 2010, 6:46 PM EDT

    Delonte West

    UPDATE#2 6:46 pm: In pregame interviews, Von Wafer told the Boston Globe, “I don’t know nothing about it. First time hearing about it.” Doc Rivers said that there was a fight, “and that’s all you need to know.” UPDATE 4:35 pm: Speaking with the Boston Globe, Celtics GM Danny Ainge confirmed that there had been…

  12. In case you missed it: Blake Griffin can sky

    Oct 29, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    The Clippers and Blake Griffin take on Golden State tonight and that might be must-watch television. Yes, “Clippers” and “must watch” in the same sentence, but it’s Griffin. The man just skies, and in what should be a wide open game he should have chances. Plus Griffin on David Lee should be s show.

  13. The season has just begun, but the clock’s already ticking for the Utah Jazz

    Oct 29, 2010, 5:14 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    The Utah Jazz are struggling. Most thought they would. They’re incorporating all kinds of new pieces (the most notable of which is star big man Al Jefferson), missing a pretty prominent rotation player due to injury, and trying to make it all work in one of the league’s more deliberate and complicated offenses. We knew…

  14. Landry Fields could be long-term starter for the Knicks

    Oct 29, 2010, 4:48 PM EDT

    Landry Fields

    Stanford graduate and Knicks rookie Landry Fields had a solid season opener on Tuesday night, playing 30 minutes in New York’s 98-93 victory over the Toronto Raptors and leading all Knicks starters in +/-. According to the New York Post, Knicks fans should probably get used to Fields being in the starting lineup: This is…

  15. Magic’s Jason Williams suspended one game, will not play against Heat

    Oct 29, 2010, 4:22 PM EDT

    jason-williams

    With less than a minute to go in last night’s Orlando blowout of Washington — so long after you tuned out and flipped over to The Office — Jason Williams got ejected. Williams got one of those quick technicals for showing displeasure with a call, one that happened with his team up 30 points and…

  16. Wojnarowski: Dampier agrees to one-year deal with Rockets

    Oct 29, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    Image (1) EDampier_standing-thumb-250x375-20907.jpg for post 6230

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, free agent center Erick Dampier has agreed to a one-year deal with the Houston Rockets. On paper, this looks like a great move for the Rockets. Dampier is a big body who’s always had a good defensive reputation; the Rockets desperately need a true backup for Yao Ming…

  17. Bill Walton: “Carmelo does not have what it takes to be the great player”

    Oct 29, 2010, 3:56 PM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_high5-thumb-250x140-18487.jpg for post 6258

    Bill Walton and top basketball statistician agree on something. Excuse me for a minute while I relocate myself to my underground bunker. New York Knicks fans are still living in the Carmelo Anthony fantasy land, picturing him and Amare Stoudemire as two-thirds of the powerhouse trio they need to return to glory in the East.…

  18. Rudy Fernandez tired of writing checks for things his agents say, appeals fine

    Oct 29, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    0920-rudy-fernandez-300

    Rudy Fernandez has two agents: Andy Miller for his NBA deals and Gerard Darnes for European deals. Or does he? During the summer of his discontent, both Miller and Darnes said things about Fernandez wanting to get out of Portland that led Fernandez to be fined. In September it was Darnes, going on a Portland…

  19. John Wall, welcome to the NBA

    Oct 29, 2010, 2:12 PM EDT

    Howard_Wall

    The first time John Wall came around a high pick in the NBA — just seconds into the opening game against Orlando Thursday — he had plenty of room. Jameer Nelson had gone under the pick. Way under. We’re going to dare you to take that uncontested jumper under. So Wall did — and he…

  20. Wolves have little hope of getting more compensation for Webster

    Oct 29, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    Mwebster_wolves

    Caveat emptor. It’s the first rule of being a consumer, and the Minnesota Timberwolves ignored it. Now they stand little chance of getting any extra compensation from the Portland Trail Blazers in the Martell Webster trade. For those of you need to brush up on our Latin, caveat emptor means “let the buyer beware.” The…
