    Big men have played until they turned 40 in the NBA — Shaquille O’Neal wants to do it now, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Robert Parish have done it among a number of others. With guards, that’s much harder. Michael Jordan played until he was 39 and you notice that Washington Wizards Jordan didn’t end up in…

  2. Give Marcin Gortat the damn ball

    Marcin Gortat is not just a big body in there to bang and grab rebounds and not screw up while Dwight Howard gets a blow for the Magic. He wants you to know he can shoot — sure he only took one shot a game last season but he hit 53 percent of then. At…

  3. Miami Heat love them some military grade weapons

    Oct 7, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    When the Miami Heat were at Eglin Air Force Base for training camp, they took a break from running suicides to check out people firing some big guns shooting up walls and cars. And they loved it. LOVED IT. Check out reactions of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Eric Freeman of Early Termination option found…

  4. Grant Hill and Reggie Evans in the worst ejection ever

    Grant Hill and Reggie Evans got ejected from a preseason game last night for patting each other on the butt. Seriously. It may be the worst ejection we can remember in the NBA. Referee Bill Kennedy is in mid-season overreaction form. It happened while the Raptors were blowing the Suns out of the building Wednesday…

  5. Ron Artest, NFL tight end? Boxer?

    Oct 7, 2010, 9:36 AM EDT

    Image (1) rartest_postgame-thumb-250x140-17190.jpg for post 6331

    Apparently Ron Artest is tired of seeing his name on ProBasketballTalk and wants to see his name on ProFootballTalk. And do some boxing. Basically he just wants to fill up Michael David Smith’s twitter time line. From Hoopshype: After I’m done with my basketball career, I want to box and I wanna play football -probably…

  6. All Peja Stojakovic wants is a pain free season

    Oct 7, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    Image (1) nba_stojakovic_250.jpg for post 6330

    Last season, Peja Stojakovic missed 20 games due to a lingering back issue. The year before 21. Those two years his field goal percentage dropped 40 points from what it had been three years ago, from three (his specialty) the percentage dropped 60 points. Now, at age 33, he told Hornets.com what happens next depends…

  7. Could it be the Washington Bullets once again?

    Oct 7, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    Washington’s new owner Ted Leonsis promised changes. He asked fans what needed to change around the Wizards and the Verizon Center where they play. He got a box full of suggestions, and on Wednesday he posted a list of 101 things he has done to improve the team at the request of fans (via the…

  8. Agent: Hey, stop picking on Rudy Fernandez, it's not nice

    Oct 7, 2010, 1:02 AM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez has not been popular in Portland this summer. Primarily because he said he didn’t want to be there anymore, said he wanted to be in Europe and had an agent publicly pushing for a trade. But you know, aside that it’s all puppies and rainbows. Jason Quick of the Oregonian wrote what a…

  9. Dwight Howard music video: "Fast Don't Lie"

    Oct 6, 2010, 11:30 PM EDT

    This has been all over the NBA blogosphere (I can’t remember where I saw it first at this point or I’d link… sorry) but it is too dang funny not to watch a couple more times. Dwight Howard should wear a smoking jacket all the time.

  10. Report: Nuggets find market drying up for huge Carmelo Anthony deal

    Oct 6, 2010, 10:40 PM EDT

    The Nuggets are asking a lot for Carmelo Anthony in a trade: good young players and draft picks for the future, enough established talent to keep them in the playoffs now, plus cap relief that keeps them below the luxury tax. And a date with Scarlett Johansson. And a DeLorean that can travel through time.…

  11. NBA may take preseason games to Brazil in next couple years

    Oct 6, 2010, 8:12 PM EDT

    Brazil already has the World Cup and Olympics coming to its shores, and David Stern wants the NBA to be part of the wave, too. The NBA preseason tour may go to Brazil in the coming years, David Stern said before today’s Knicks and Timberwolves and Paris, according to the Associated Press. He said the…

  12. Phoenix, Chicago this week's frontrunners for Erick Dampier

    Oct 6, 2010, 6:55 PM EDT

    Let’s be honest, we got annoyed with the LeBron James decision process that seemed to drag on and on, but at least there was a franchise-shaping decision coming at the end of it. The Erick Dampier decision-making process? It just drags on and on. Dampier will meet this week with Chicago and Phoenix, according to…

  13. Piston's Jonas Jerebko injures Achilles, surgery will keep him out 5 to 6 months

    Oct 6, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:45 pm: The news is bad — a torn Achilles, which means surgery and 5 to 6 months of recovery, according to a tweet from the official Detroit Pistons account. That will have the second year forward back sometime after the All-Star break. 8:40 am: Jonas Jerebko got the start for the Pistons at…

  14. Detroit rookie Terrico White breaks foot, needs surgery

    Oct 6, 2010, 5:37 PM EDT

How long he will be out will be determined after the surgery. However the basic rule of “foot surgery…

  15. Dwight Howard seeks to expand his post game, learns from the best

    Oct 6, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    To the casual fan, Dwight Howard’s post game is a crime against humanity. A man with his physical gifts should be dropping 30 a night, they say. Dropping sky hooks on a whim, they say. Calling to mind the centers of old, they say. To hell with that, I say. Howard’s moves on the block…

  16. Shaun Livingston experiencing some pain in his repaired knee

    Oct 6, 2010, 3:53 PM EDT

    Shaun Livingston’s career is in his knees. Or in his knee, really. Until the day he retires from the game for good, there will always be questions (from fans, teammates, trainers, coaches, and managers alike) about the stability of that joint, and as much as I wish we could scrub The Snap Heard ‘Round the…

  17. Mike D'Antoni's vote of confidence in Timofey Mozgov's basketball ability, if not his language skills

    Oct 6, 2010, 3:11 PM EDT

    All basketball coaches play favorites, but Mike D’Antoni — no stranger to wearing his opinion on his press scrum sleeve — is a bit more forthcoming with that information than most NBA types. It’s still something short of explicit, but deciphering Pringles’ player-specific quotes doesn’t take much imagination. Plenty of this year’s Knicks have D’Antoni…

  18. Byron Scott is not evil, just needs fashion advice

    Oct 6, 2010, 2:44 PM EDT

    If you don’t hang out on NBA message boards… good for you. You have a life, please go enjoy it. Don’t change. But you may have missed this photo making the rounds. It’s the Cavaliers coaching staff from media day. Now take a good look at Byron Scott’s tie… yup, that’s a swastika in the…

  19. TJ Ford out at least a week with hamstring injury

    Oct 6, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    Suddenly, guards getting preseason hamstring injuries is the trend. Guys — just because they are doing it in Miami doesn’t mean you have to. T.J Ford will be out at least a week with a hamstring injury, according to the Indianapolis Star.He will not suit up in the team’s preseason opener against the Grizzlies tonight.…

  20. NBA Season Preview: Oklahoma City Thunder

    Oct 6, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Last season: 50-32, which tied them three ways for the sixth seed, but due to tiebreakers they got the eighth spot — and the Lakers in the first round. The athleticism of the Thunder pushed it six games, but you have to learn to win in the NBA and the Thunder are still learning. Head…
