  1. Nets, Nuggets working on four team deal for Carmelo Anthony

    Sep 24, 2010, 1:10 PM EDT

    You have to say this about the new New Jersey Nets regime — they hustle. The Nets are working feverishly to come up with a complex multi-team deal that would bring Carmelo Anthony to the Garden State (for a couple of years, and then Brooklyn), according to both Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo and ESPN’s Mark…

  2. NBA Season Preview: Detroit Pistons

    Sep 24, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    Last season: 27-55 in a season where a tidal wave of injuries washed over the squad (Ben Gordon missed 20 games, Tayshaun Prince 33, Richard Hamilton 36, and the list goes on and on). That can’t happen again, right? RIGHT?! Head Coach: John Kuester who may or may not be good, we can’t judge based…

  3. Mark Cuban not done banging on the Heat, says they're a team "only locals can love"

    Sep 24, 2010, 11:24 AM EDT

    Okay Mark, we get it. Mark Cuban thinks people will hate the new Miami Heat, then will tune in to watch and root against them. And that at the end of the day that is good for the league because people are watching and involved. Cuban did a chat with the Fort Worth Star Telegram…

  4. Kobe Bryant hasn't got time for the finger pain

    Sep 24, 2010, 11:10 AM EDT

    It’s pretty easy to predict what Kobe Bryant is going to say about his index finger Saturday at media day: “It’s fine, it doesn’t affect what I do.” Ask a second question and he’ll laugh and say he answered that. A third and he glares at the reporter. But the finger is an issue —…

  5. Want to see the Heat at Madison Square Garden? It's gonna cost you.

    Sep 24, 2010, 10:25 AM EDT

    Welcome to the world of variable ticket pricing. You know, the idea taking hold in the NBA (and sports generally) that tickets to high profile games will cost more than not-in-demand games. Basic supply and demand economics. So how much more? How about nearly four times as much. Which is more than “variable pricing” and…

  6. Writing had been on wall for Don Nelson for months

    Sep 24, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Don Nelson is a revolutionary coach. Whatever you think of how it ended, the man was a game changer. He helped make it okay for Dirk Nowitzki to be a power forward on the wing. You don’t become the all-time winningest coach in NBA history on a fluke. He had a career — from playing…

  7. Amar'e Stoudemire says Carmelo Anthony would be a good teammate. You think?

    Sep 24, 2010, 9:38 AM EDT

    Through all of the talk and controversy around Carmelo Anthony trying to force his way out of Denver, one thing has never really been in question  — Melo can ball. He will make your team better (as long as you didn’t give up too much to get him). But just to make sure you know,…

  8. Brad Miller sprains ankle, out a couple of weeks

    Sep 24, 2010, 8:55 AM EDT

  9. Overtly complain about a call, get a technical. It's now the law.

    Sep 24, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant does it. LeBron James does it. Kevin Garnett does it. Much of the league does it. Rasheed Wallace did it like he was playing down at Venice Beach in Los Angeles. Players complain about calls. Or non-calls. They throw their hands in the air in disgust even at the most obvious of calls.…

  10. Doug Collins says Jrue Holiday will be one of top 5 point guards

    Sep 23, 2010, 9:30 PM EDT

    Hey, Jrue. No pressure. Talking with the media today, new Philadelphia 76ers coach Doug Collins spoke with more bombast than he ever did as a color analyst. Here are the tweets from our own Adam Levitan or Rotoworld who was there. Doug Collins says he thinks jrue holiday will be a top-5 pg in nba…

  13. Mo Williams says he was "misquoted" about considering retirement

    Sep 23, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    A few days ago, Mo Williams was quoted as saying he considered retirement after LeBron James’ decision in a Marc Spears story on Yahoo!. Now Williams is saying his statements were misunderstood.

    Sep 23, 2010, 6:46 PM EDT

  15. Suns sign Alvin Gentry to extension

    Sep 23, 2010, 6:32 PM EDT

    With Amar’e Stoudemire in New York, Leandro Barbosa in Toronto, and Hedo Turkoglu and Josh Childress joining the team, the Suns have made some major changes to their on-court personnel for next season.

  16. Deron Williams, backflipping off a cliff

    Sep 23, 2010, 5:31 PM EDT

      Courtesy of the good people at SLC Dunk, here’s Utah Jazz point guard Deron Williams doing a backflip off a cliff at Sand Hollow state park in Utah. (Hat tip to Deadspin, who added a T.I. soundtrack to the video.)  Pretty well done, although Chris Paul probably could’ve added a half-twist to it if…

  17. Donnie Walsh's Catch-22

    Sep 23, 2010, 4:36 PM EDT

    Knicks decision maker Donnie Walsh would love to get in on the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, but he doesn’t have all the chips needed to get a seat at the table. He doesn’t have a first round draft pick (well, not until 2014 anyway, and nobody wants to wait that long). A pick like the one…

  18. Chinese team targets Rafer Alston and Flip Murray

    Sep 23, 2010, 3:37 PM EDT

    The Chinese Basketball Association may not have the same draw as more prestigious European leagues, but what it does have is a type. Stephon Marbury. Steve Francis. Maybe Allen Iverson. The CBA has become a post-NBA destination for low-efficiency scoring point guards, and according to the Hoops Market, we can now add two more prospective…

  19. Phil Jackson reminisces about Scottie Pippen (and his defense)

    Sep 23, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson got put on the radio — ESPN 1000 Radio in Chicago — with Scottie Pippen, and he sounded like a coach. We fans have our memories of Pippen the player, the dramatic dunks and the big games. The rings. But Jackson thinks of Pippen the defensive leader.  The other thing that I remember…

  20. Magic draft pick Daniel Orton may need surgery

    Sep 23, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    The Magic don’t really need another center right now — the Dwight Howard guy is working out pretty well — but they took a smart risk drafting that other guy out of Kentucky, Daniel Orton. But it is going to be a while until we see if that risk pays off — Orton may need…
