  1. Apparently, nobody is as interested in Iverson as it seemed

    Aug 20, 2010, 8:25 PM EDT

    The market for Allen Iverson remains dry. Like Death Valley in June dry. This morning the rumor on the Web was that the New Orleans Hornets and Orlando Magic were interested in Iverson. It didn’t take long for officials from the Hornets to shoot that idea down. This afternoon the Magic said they were not…

  2. Darren Collison is healing up, eyeing the playoffs

    Aug 20, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Darren Collison has gone from being the guy who backs up Chris Paul to the man expected to turn Indiana’s fortunes around. No pressure. But Collison sounded good with that leadership role in an interview on 1070 the Fan in Indianapolis. I think we have a lot of good things to look forward to, but…

  3. Michael Jackson tribute ends, Ron Artest switching to No. 15 jersey

    Aug 20, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” was a seven-hit wonder, but Ron Artest’s tribute to the pop star turned out to be a one-year wonder. Ron Artest will be switching to No. 15 next season, the number he wore at St. John’s in college and his first three seasons in the NBA, according to Kevin Ding of the…

  4. Kobe Bryant is on board with the summer of positional revolution

    Aug 20, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Pat Riley used to talk about wanting to play five players of all basically the same height — five players between 6’5″ and 6’9″ who could switch ever defensive pick, could all run the floor, who could all handle the ball a little, who could all cut to the basket from the wing, could all…

  5. DeLonte West suspended for 10 games after guilty plea on gun charges

    Aug 20, 2010, 4:29 PM EDT

    DeLonte West is still trying to find a team for next season, but when he does that team will be without his services for 10 games.

  6. Chauncey Billups: Anthony has not said he doesn't want to be a Nugget

    Aug 20, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    The buzz around the league is that Carmelo Anthony has one foot out the door in Denver, and the other foot is planted in a starters block. On the other hand, his own words came off as a man conflicted. A man who hasn’t decided what direction to go. Chauncey Billups has been talking with…

  7. Kendrick Perkins says Shaq is "a good pickup"

    Aug 20, 2010, 2:49 PM EDT

    Starting center for the Boston Celtics is Kendrick Perkins job, he’s just not going to be able to do prove it until January. So two other guys have been brought in to keep the seat warm — and provide some front line depth for the playoffs. Jermaine O’Neal will be your starter for the season…

  8. Kenyon Martin is still waiting to be impressed

    Aug 20, 2010, 1:55 PM EDT

    How long can the Denver Nuggets honestly claim to be on the brink of contention? There is some room for natural improvement — having George Karl back should help, more playing time for Ty Lawson would go a long way, etc. — but this team is essentially the same as it was last year. And…

  9. Joakim Noah has friends

    Aug 20, 2010, 1:54 PM EDT

    The Chicago Bulls are using Joakim Noah and his feisty reputation to help sell season tickets this year. Carlos Boozer and some guys who can drain threes should sell more, but still pretty entertaining campaign.

  10. Report: Allen Iverson linked to the Hornets and Magic

    Aug 20, 2010, 1:10 PM EDT

    UPDATE 1:10 PM: Marc Stein of ESPN.com refuted part of the initial report via Twitter.

  11. How does Chicago really feel about Dwyane Wade?

    Aug 20, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    We get that in Cleveland there is a boiling, overflowing cauldron of hate for LeBron James that has spilled out into the streets and into song. It could have been that way in Chicago — fans there thought for a while they had a real chance to land Dwyane Wade, to bring a favorite son…

  12. Stephen Curry on court, practices with Team USA

    Aug 20, 2010, 11:56 AM EDT

    It was a non-contact, no scrimmage, just run through the drills and offense kind of day for Team USA. You know, those practices you hated in high school. But it was a good one for Stephen Curry, because he was back on the court. He had missed a couple days of practice with a mild…

  13. Michigan Native Gores appears frontrunner to buy Pistons

    Aug 20, 2010, 10:56 AM EDT

    You know that Tom Gores has money — he was seen near courtside for Game 7 between the Lakers and Celtics, and they were not giving those tickets away. Gores now appears to be the frontrunner to buy the Pistons, according to the Detroit News. Gores was raised in Flint, went to Michigan State, used…

  14. Here's a shocker: FIBA officials are reviewing yesterday's brawl

    Aug 20, 2010, 10:29 AM EDT

    Chairs were thrown. Screams were screamed. Sofoklis Schortsanitis probably wrecked a man. Nenad Krstic did some back-pedaling and threw a chair. If you somehow missed the brawl that took place during yesterday’s Greece-Serbia friendly, you’re probably having trouble with this whole internet thing. Just click here, and all of your wildest basketbrawling dreams will be…

  15. Amar'e Stoudemire: I never even spoke with Isiah Thomas

    Aug 20, 2010, 10:26 AM EDT

    At the press conference announcing the New York Knicks had fulfilled all their summer basketball aspirations by signing Amar’e Stoudemire (what, you thought they had other goals?) everyone kissed Isiah Thomas’ ring. On the orders of owner James Dolan, team president Donnie Walsh and others thanked Thomas for his role in bringing Amar’e to New…

  16. Krzyzewski, Durant talk about Team USA's progress

    Aug 20, 2010, 9:47 AM EDT

      Coach K and Kevin Durant are feeling pretty good about the team, but we’ll have a much better idea of how good they really are after games this weekend against Lithuania and Spain,

  17. Vlade Divac to headline class for FIBA Hall of Fame

    Aug 20, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    The basketball Hall of Fame thing gets confusing. Because just one week ago we had inductions into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, which is the one we Americans tend to think of first. But there is also the FIBA Hall of Fame. And there is no NBA Hall of Fame, it just kind…

  18. Denver should be patient, not move Carmelo Anthony on August speculation

    Aug 20, 2010, 9:08 AM EDT

    You want a good reason why the Denver Nuggets should be very deliberate in it’s dealings with Carmelo Anthony? Woody Paige of the Denver Post put it clearly: In the seven years Anthony has been in Denver they averaged 48 wins a season and never missed the playoffs. The eight years before he came they…

  19. Now that was a brawl: Nenad Krstic has been released from prison

    Aug 20, 2010, 8:36 AM EDT

    Nenad Krstic had quite the finals of the Acropolis tournament. There were points and rebounds and grabbing Greek forward Antonis Fotsis by the throat and throwing a chair at Greek center Sofoklis Schortsanitis. It earned Krstic, the Oklahoma City center, a night in an Athens jail. He was released the next morning and went back…

  20. Ever want to smell like Lamar Odom? You'll soon be in luck.

    Aug 19, 2010, 10:50 PM EDT

    Le odor de Odom. When you’re a hot celebrity couple and you attach your name to something and people will buy it. Regardless. For example, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are teaming up on a unisex fragrance. I couldn’t make this stuff up. Kardashian confirmed it to the New York Daily News (via the fashionista…
