  1. Team USA routes France. What did we really learn?

    Aug 15, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    As expected, Team USA routed France, 86-55. We talk about how Team USA is sending a “B” team to the World Championships (Kobe, LeBron, Wade, Melo and more are staying home) but France also has six NBA players not suiting up, including Tony Parker. So what we know for one thing is that the basketball…

  2. Sorry Knicks fans, but the Isiah Thomas saga may have another chapter

    Aug 15, 2010, 1:32 PM EDT

    It’s the questions most often asked around the New York Knicks saga: Why in the world would the Knicks even consider bringing Isiah Thomas back? Are they dropping acid like it’s 1968 in the Knicks offices? Bringing him back makes no sense if you’re thinking like a basketball executive. It makes no sense if you’re…

    Aug 15, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

  5. Charlotte aimed for a mediocrity, and it's paying off

    Aug 15, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    The “right way” to build an NBA franchise is from the ground up. Clear out contracts. Draft well. Sign value free agents to smart deals. Stay young and stay flexible, in the hope that one day an elite player will finally fall into the team’s lap. Unfortunately that’s not a blueprint most small-market clubs can…

  6. Report: Nuggets waive Coby Karl, injured Brian Butch

    Aug 15, 2010, 8:17 AM EDT

    Aug 14, 2010, 9:50 PM EDT

    Aug 14, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    UPDATE 8:30 pm: Looks like when Team USA hops on a plane for exhibition “friendlies” in Europe next week, they will bring more than the 12 they can suit up in Turkey.  That’s what Coach K told ESPN: “The chances of us having more than 12 on the plane Monday are good, but it may…

    Aug 14, 2010, 7:10 PM EDT

  11. You may have forgotten about Haiti, Samuel Dalembert has not

    Aug 14, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert lost three family members and about 10 friends when that devastating earthquake rocked Haiti last Jan. 12.

    Aug 14, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

  14. The Flip Side: Shane Battier lives again

    Aug 14, 2010, 11:42 AM EDT

    Wednesday’s four-way trade saw just about every team involved walk away a winner. However, the effects of that trade are far more specific than just saying “This team got better,” or “This team accomplished its goals.” In The Flip Side, we’ll look at one player from each of the four teams — the Nets, the…

    Aug 14, 2010, 10:36 AM EDT

    Tracy McGrady went into this summer wanting a key role on a contending team. He ends it with a minimum contract with the Detroit Pistons. That had to be frustrating. And when FanHouse reached him it sounded like it. “My game this season will do all the talking I need to do now,” McGrady told…

    Aug 14, 2010, 9:33 AM EDT

    Mike Miller might not be the alpha dog in the Miami Heat locker room, but nobody’s going to be getting his face. Unless they want some ground and pound.

  17. Coach K tells Kevin Durant to shoot the rock

    Aug 14, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

  18. Karl Malone enters the Hall of Fame

    Aug 13, 2010, 10:11 PM EDT

  19. Hall of Famers not giving Heat the title. Yet.

    Aug 13, 2010, 8:39 PM EDT

    The Miami Heat are going to be very good. Nobody questions that. This team is going to win a lot of game this year. Put LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on one team and you’re going to get that. A title… not so fast. Hall of Famers in Springfield, Mass., for the induction…
