  1. Tim Thomas looking to tag along with Mavs again

    Jul 25, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    Crazy as it sounds, Tim Thomas was actually pretty good last season, before a knee injury and family illness put him down for the count. He shot 46% from the field and 37% from three, which was a central component of what the Mavericks needed last season, especially in the playoffs versus the Spurs. But…

  2. Rudy Gay with the big dunk.. so pay the man $84 million

    Jul 25, 2010, 1:58 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay can thrown it down, an he had the best dunk during the Team USA while vs. blue scrimmage Saturday night at the Thomas and Mack in Vegas. He can dunk and is athletic, no doubt. Can the Grizzly with the big new contract bring a well rounded game to lead a team like…

  3. Rajon Rondo unsurprisingly is not concerned with the Heat

    Jul 25, 2010, 11:37 AM EDT

    The defining characteristic of the Boston Celtics is their defense. Their second defining characteristic is arrogance. This isn’t a bad thing. The Celtics, like all great teams, pride themselves on being the team they consider the best. All season long they kept the same mantra: the only team that can beat them is themselves. This…

  4. Chris Bosh still developing documentary

    Jul 25, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    You’d think he would have noticed everything. The monumental backlash to “The Decision.” The massive criticism for Wade even mentioning 9/11. The plummeting Q ratings. You’d think Chris Bosh would have noticed that all the attention and self-aggrandizement the Big 3 in Miami have brought on themselves has been too much and they need to…

  5. White Team routs Blue Team in Team USA scrimmage; real question: who's playing center?

    Jul 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    I’ve never really understood watching scrimmages. I mean, I do it a lot. I’ll watch basketball pretty much at any level. But the players are just so removed from the effort level we find most enjoyable to watch. That level, if you’re wondering, is a Game 7 in the playoffs in the semifinals or higher.…

  6. Rasual Butler will be back with the Clippers

    Jul 25, 2010, 8:24 AM EDT

    Little known fact: Rasual Butler set a Clipper team record for most three pointers made in a season last year with 149. Part of that was because he and Eric Gordon were the only two reliable three point shooters on the team, and Butler barely so shooting 33.6 percent on the season. Butler got a…

  7. New York's Isiah Thomas Redux nightmare is over

    Jul 24, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    After Donnie Walsh tapped him to make their final pitch to LeBron James (that went well), there were discussions that the Knicks were looking at Isiah Thomas to fill their GM position. Subsequently, Knicks fans began experiencing a range of symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, vertigo, and an uncontrollable urge to destroy everything in their path.…

  8. We're living in an age of great shooters

    Jul 24, 2010, 12:14 PM EDT

    It’s a lazy Saturday afternoon in the NBA offseason. Our primary choices of discussion are the latest in Chris Paul rumors (nothing of substance will develop until after his meeting with NOLA brass Monday), Shaquille O’Neal rumors (the great celebration of the marginal), and a Las Vegas team that doesn’t exist. So instead, I thought…

  9. Not a super weekend for Tyreke Evans

    Jul 24, 2010, 12:04 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans is having one of those no-good weekends. The Rookie of the Year should be having the time of his life, celebrating the first 20-5-5 rookie season since LeBron James in 2004, and being a potential leader for Team USA. Instead, not only will he not be joining the team in Turkey, but Evans…

  10. Shaquille O'Neal's latest delusion involves the Celtics

    Jul 24, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Helpful tip for NBA free-agents. If you’re looking at possible teams to join? Try looking at their roster first. If they happen to employ someone who plays your position and plays at well, for more money and is younger? They’re probably not interested. If they employ two, halve that percentage they’re into you. Shaquille O’Neal…

  11. Report: Chris Paul denies LRMR connection

    Jul 24, 2010, 8:33 AM EDT

    You remember when we finally got through “The Decision” and we were so excited because we wouldn’t have to talk about LeBron for a while? Well, Chris Paul has come in and hijacked our summer away from us. Howard Beck of the New York Times, that fancy inkrag up New York way brings us news…

  12. Kobe Bryant had knee surgery last week, will be ready to go for camp

    Jul 23, 2010, 9:30 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant had  his knee drained during the first round of the playoffs, and immediately afterward had some of his best games. In classic Kobe fashion, he tried to play it off as nothing ad played through it the rest of the way. However, it pretty clearly bothered him. Last week he had his knee…

  13. Chris Paul has a Magic preference

    Jul 23, 2010, 9:01 PM EDT

    After Chris Paul’s list of places he’d like to be traded to came out, the natural response was to seek out a preference of Paul, the Hornets, and King of Mardis Gras. Just as it was with LeBron, only without any sort of leverage on the part of the player, every city of fans believe…

  14. Lorenzen Wright reported missing by family

    Jul 23, 2010, 8:26 PM EDT

    Lorenzen Wright — the 13-year NBA veteran center who has been out of the game for a couple years — has been reported missing by his family. He has been missing since Sunday, when he was expected to fly to meet family in the Memphis area, but never arrived. According to the report on WREG…

  15. Pacers ink Lance Stephenson to a multi-year deal

    Jul 23, 2010, 7:18 PM EDT

    Regardless of whether Lance Stephenson is better suited to be a point guard or a shooting guard, he’ll be a Pacer next season. In a completely unsurprising move, Indiana signed the No. 40 pick in this year’s draft to a multi-year deal, according to NBA.com. Pacers coach Jim O’Brien fancies Stephenson a point guard, and…

  16. Devin Ebanks and Derrick Caracter begin contract negotiations with the Lakers

    Jul 23, 2010, 6:42 PM EDT

    While teams all around the league are spending big to keep pace with the league’s elite, the league’s elite is quietly making moves to get better and better. Last year’s Lakers were only good enough to win the championship, and yet with a handful of small, conservative moves, L.A. looks stronger than ever. Kobe seems…

  17. Will Shaq finally lower his asking price?

    Jul 23, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    The last contract Shaquille O’Neal signed was a five-year extension worth an even $100 million. He is one of the most dominant players to ever step onto an NBA court, he’s a four-time NBA champion, and he’s a lock for the Hall of Fame when he retires. Of course, none of that mattered when the…

  18. Just in case you were curious, Stephon Marbury is still completely batty

    Jul 23, 2010, 6:07 PM EDT

    Whether in the All-Star game, on the bench, in a box, or in China, nothing seems to change with Stephon Marbury. He is who he’s always been, and that’s why no one should be all that surprised that when given the opportunity to be a part of the championship-favorite Miami Heat for the coming season,…

  19. The Pooh Jeter watch is over, he lands with the Sacramento Kings

    Jul 23, 2010, 5:14 PM EDT

    People just like Pooh Jeter. He’s an undersized underdog who is a solid floor general and a good point guard. After graduating college he has spent the last four seasons either in the D-League or Europe. He blogged for DraftExpress. He was a Summer League staple. And he just kept working hard. Today the Sacramento…

  20. Kings reach deal with Antoine Wright

    Jul 23, 2010, 5:01 PM EDT

    UPDATE: 5:01 pm: Antoine Wright is a King. You can all rest and enjoy your weekend now, and everyone in Sacramento may leave work early and head to happy hour. Wright has proclaimed you can. 11:57 am: The idea of getting a defensive specialist out of Toronto — the worst defensive team in the NBA…
