  2. Hedo Turkoglu on Toronto: "Something is wrong with that organization"

    Aug 1, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Hedo Turkoglu got his wish — the Raptors traded him out of Toronto to the Phoenix Suns. But on his way out the door Turkoglu keeps taking shots at the Raptors. Classy. Sunday there was a needlessly vindictive series of comments with Turkoglu spoke with FoxSportsArizona.com. “People have to realize something is wrong with that…

  3. Crazy things still happen to Dennis Rodman, like his Land Rover flipping

    Aug 1, 2010, 7:40 PM EDT

    He’s been out of the NBA for years, but you can still count on Dennis Rodman to do something that draws your attention. For a minute or so. Rodman was in a Land Rover traveling on Interstate 95 near Ft. Lauderdale when the vehicle had a tire problem and eventually flipped, according to the Associated…

  4. What can we really expect from Shaq this year?

    Aug 1, 2010, 5:41 PM EDT

    Shaquille O’Neal is still looking for a team. August has arrived, and the FMD (Former Most Dominant) is unemployed. It seems reasonable that Shaq would be towards the end of the free agent acquisitions. He’s in the awkward cross-section of expensive and old, both of which are in the short list of words that make…

  5. Ron Artest is far more self-aware than you gave him credit for

    Aug 1, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Ron Artest may or may not be crazy, you can make the call on that. But the man is not simple. As fans we tend to think of professional athletes as two dimensional, and we tend to care far more about what they do at their job than we do about them as people. We…

  6. Zydrunas Ilgauskas pens letter thanking Cleveland

    Aug 1, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland fans aren’t dealing with the loss of one favorite son. They’re dealing with two. Zydrunas Ilgauskas, a Cavalier for 14 years, headed to Miami with LeBron James to try and win a championship with his friend. James’ betrayal was “king” in Cleveland. Get it? “King?” As in, LeBron James, “King James?” It’s a pun,…

  7. Michael Jordan moving closer to Bobcats ops

    Aug 1, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    There’s nothing about being the owner of a sports team that means you have to be in the same city as your team. In fact, a vast majority of owners do not make their home near the team’s operations. And if you do, it’s still no guarantee that you’ll be successful, far from it. In…

  8. Tyreke Evans had a need. A need for highly illegal speed (with no regard for passing lanes).

    Aug 1, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

    It always looks worse on video than it does on paper. Tyreke Evans got tagged in May for driving 120 miles-an-hour in a non-120-miles-an-hour zone.  He was briefly arrested then released. Last week he plead guilty to reckless driving and was sentenced to probation. A slap on the wrist really. So the story went away……

  10. Ryan Anderson isn't messing around this summer

    Jul 31, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson was considered a throw-in in the Vince Carter deal for the Magic last summer. A promising power forward with some range that would make a nice end-of-the bench guy. But those in the know recognized that Anderson wasn’t only tall with promising rebounding numbers (19% rebounding rate- percentage of all available rebounds obtained),…

  11. George Hill: Tony Parker is not expendable

    Jul 31, 2010, 5:59 PM EDT

    George Hill had Tony Parker’s starting job by the end of the season and through the playoffs. That has a lot of team executives who covet Parker (and fans of other teams and media members) thinking the Spurs will try to trade Parker this summer. It’s easy to make it work from your team’s perspective…

  12. Former security guard arrested for making bomb threats on NBA offices

    Jul 31, 2010, 5:21 PM EDT

    A former security guard at the building has been arrested for making repeated bomb threats to the NBA offices in Secaucus, New Jersey.  The Star-Ledger has the details. José Quesada, 19, of Elizabeth, who surrendered to federal authorities today, was employed by a security company hired by the NBA to patrol its offices at the…

  13. Shannon Brown, these streets will make you feel brand new, plus there is more money in New York

    Jul 31, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Shannon Brown likes Los Angeles a lot, loves playing for the Lakers. Winning is fun, plus there are perks – you don’t have a role in the new Monica video if you’re coming off the bench in Indiana. But it’s about the money at some point, and New York is offering more — Alex Kennedy…

  14. All of a sudden, Dwight Howard is the voice of reason

    Jul 31, 2010, 2:25 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard has never been accused of being the coolest cucumber in the refrigerator. He’s generally considered a silly young buck. But in a recent interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, he showed a tremendous amount of perspective regarding how teams build themselves for the playoffs, and the treacherous nature of building…

  15. The Thunder are literally leaking talent

    Jul 31, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Kyle Weaver’s not a bad young guard. He’s not going to set the world on fire or anything, but he’s also not going to be pulling in millions. He’s a prospect that struggled with injury last year, but shot 46% his rookie season. And the Thunder have no room for him. The Thunder released Weaver…

  16. Yi Jianlian injured in overseas competition

    Jul 31, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    There’s an international tournament going on in Liuzhou City in China, the Stankovic cup, featuring several international teams in a tune-up before the FIBA championships in Turkey. China faced Slovenia, and Goran Dragic had 15 points and 10 rebounds in a win. This is not relevant. What is relevant is that apparently Yi Jianlian was…

  17. Derrick Rose is not broken up over missing out on T-Mac

    Jul 31, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose had been very high on the idea of signing Tracy McGrady earlier this week, back when that seemed like a good idea. You can’t blame Rose. It seems like a good idea to a lot of people at a particular moment in time. This particular moment in time is actually “before you’ve seen…

  18. NBA to release the big-ticket games Tuesday

    Jul 31, 2010, 8:57 AM EDT

    It’s one of NBA-heads’ favorite times of the year. The release of the schedule. And this year, the NBA is capitalizing on that level of interest and making it into a bit of an event.

  19. In case you forgot, Kobe Bryant is good

    Jul 30, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

  20. Boston Celtic options: Shaq or Kwame. Maybe choose door No. 3.

    Jul 30, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    Boston wants one more center, one more big man on the roster. The two best out there: Shaquille O’Neal and Kwame Brown. And according to Marc Stein of ESPN the Celtics are looking at those options. The problem? The Celtics only have minimum money left. Sources say they’re having trouble getting Brown to accept those…
