  1. Teaching Terrico White

    Sep 7, 2010, 11:17 PM EST

    We have yet to see Terrico White unleashed. He is this insane athlete — did you see his dunks during the informal little contest that broke out at the rookie photo shoot, where he was going 360 between the legs? — who is raw. Who didn’t impress that much during Summer League. Who could be…

  2. Adonal Foyle gets front office job with Magic

    Sep 7, 2010, 10:05 PM EST

    Adonal Foyle was about as beloved as an NBA journeyman can be. Because he was a lot more than that. Foyle was active in philanthropy, part of the players union and just a renaissance man in the world of basketball. Media, fans, teammates, everybody loved him. When he retired last month people hated to see…

  3. Lou Amundson still sits unsigned, with Earl Barron waiting behind him

    Sep 7, 2010, 9:36 PM EST

    Remember three weeks ago when Lou Amundson was going to sign with a team in just a few days? Yup, that’s moving about as fast as Los Angeles traffic. The Hornets are the frontrunners, according to Alan Hahn at Newsday, although the Pacers and Warriors may still be in the mix. Other teams also may…

  4. Kelenna Azubuike's people say he'll be ready for the Knicks season opener

    Sep 7, 2010, 6:43 PM EST

    After he missed 73 games last season and Summer League, pardon us if we take the latest Kelenna Azubuike report with a grain of salt. According to Hoopsworld’s Alex Kennedy (via twitter) Azubuike’s camp think he’ll be ready for the season opener. Training camp, not so much. This isn’t much different than we heard from…

  5. Nets waive Sean May one month after signing him

    Sep 7, 2010, 5:54 PM EST

    Last month the New Jersey Nets signed Sean May to a deal, giving him a chance to make prove he was back from microfracture surgery and could be a backup to Derrick Favors. Tuesday they waived him. Chris Manix of Sports Illustrated had it first and explained it with this tweet. May broke his left…

  6. Luis Scola looks like the best player at the World Championships

    Sep 7, 2010, 4:56 PM EST

    Holy Scola Batman! Luis Scola made a pretty convincing case that it is he, not Kevin Durant, who has been the best player at the FIBA World Championships. Tuesday Scola had a stunning performance. Even the shots he tried to miss went in. Scola dropped in 37 points, shooting 13 of 19 inside the arc,…

  7. Can Mario Chalmers become the Heat's spot-up guy?

    Sep 7, 2010, 3:21 PM EST

    Mario Chalmers will be the starting point guard on opening night for the Miami Heat. But he will be a point guard in name only, at least in the classic definition. With Dwyane Wade and LeBron James on the floor, Chalmers will not be the guy with the ball in his hands dictating the offensive…

  8. Toronto may be getting better Linas Kleiza than the one who left Denver

    Sep 7, 2010, 2:55 PM EST

    If you weren’t watching today — you know, because you have a job and limited love for Lithuanian basketball — you missed the Linas Kleiza show. Kleiza dropped 30 points on China going 14 for 22 from the floor, and he did it all without taking a three. With the game close midway through the…

  9. Scout's list of five guys due for a breakout season

    Sep 7, 2010, 2:13 PM EST

    A handful of things we know about this NBA season. The Lakers will be good. The Celtics will lose three straight and some columnist in Boston will write them off seemingly forgetting last season. Cleveland will struggle. But it is the surprises that make the season fun. The unexpected. Like the guys who surprise the…

  10. Jamal Crawford still wants an extension or trade, still nothing happening

    Sep 7, 2010, 1:40 PM EST

    We said it before but it bears repeating, the Atlanta Hawks are in no rush to move or extend the contract of Jamal Crawford. Crawford has pushed for one of those options, but the Hawks have not made a move, and according to Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal Constitution the team has not decided…

  11. Bobcats looking for a fan blogger

    Sep 7, 2010, 1:19 PM EST

    There are some really good Charlotte Bobcat blogs out there already. Queen City Hoops is smart and with lots of great stats woven in. Rufus on Fire, Bobcats Baseline and Bobcats Planet also do quality work. Of course, the Bobcats have their own official blog — Bobcat Break — and now they want a fan…

  12. Pro Basketball Crosstalk: Rights, wrongs, and trade demands

    Sep 7, 2010, 12:00 PM EST

    Let’s face it: there are some topics in basketball that are best tackled by having two writers talk past each other at gradually increasing volumes. We’re not making any progress unless we’re yelling our way through the real issues, and that’s precisely what John Krolik and I hope to accomplish in these Pro Basketball Crosstalk…

  13. Nate McMillan has plans for Rudy Fernandez in his training camp. What trade demand?

    Sep 7, 2010, 11:39 AM EST

    Very vague trade speculation continue to float around Rudy Fernandez. The Bulls have some interest. The Knicks have some interest but they and Portland are not talking.  Nothing seems to be moving on that front. Basically, despite Rudy Fernandez throwing a tantrum and threats of a holdout by his agent, he is still a Trail…

  14. Nenad Kristic has got your back, whatever the cost

    Sep 7, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    Nenad Krstic did the crime so he was willing to do the time. And he’d do it again (well, maybe not chair part). The Oklahoma City Center is not an in-your-face kind of guy, but when Greece and Serbia ended up in a YouTube favorite brawl, he was the most aggressive Serbian player. He jumped…

  15. Hornets may make more moves to show Chris Paul they really care

    Sep 7, 2010, 10:16 AM EST

    It feels a little unfair to cast all New Orleans Hornets rumor in the “what does Chris Paul think?” category. But that is also the reality — keeping Chris Paul has to be a consideration in almost everything the Hornets do. It is Priority No. 1. And it should be Priority No. 2 also. The…

  16. Cavs owner Dan Gilbert: Now we're going to build the right way

    Sep 7, 2010, 9:50 AM EST

    Dan Gilbert is putting a much better spin on LeBron James leaving now. Not the right one, but at least one that sounds reasonable and lacks Comic Sans font. In a story about rebuilding the Cavaliers at the News-Herald, here is what Gilbert said about the effort. “We weren’t as focused on the long term…

  17. Andray Blatche will be ready for Wizards training camp, Sean Marks will be there too

    Sep 7, 2010, 9:21 AM EST

    Years of potential exploded into a couple very productive months last season for Andray Blatche. Throw in rookie top pick John Wall and an offense that will get out and run, and you may have something fun and pretty good in Washington next season. If Blatche is healthy. He had foot surgery in June and…

  18. Russian coach says USA not cheated out of gold in 1972 Olympics

    Sep 7, 2010, 9:02 AM EST

    It remains one of the most controversial basketball games ever. The ending of the 1972 Olympic gold medal game in Munich featured a Russian team getting three chances to inbound the ball late in the game and down one point, and it was on the third they were able to execute a length of the…

  19. James Singleton skips out on a minimum NBA contract for a chance to play in China

    Sep 7, 2010, 8:30 AM EST

    James Singleton is an NBA player, but next season he’ll be merely an NBA-caliber player. Rather than take another tour riding the pine for an NBA team, Singleton has opted to sign a deal with the Xinjiang Gyang Hui Flying Tigers (basketball home of almost-NBAer Charles Gaines and one-time NBA import, Mengke Bateer!), according to…

  20. Russia earns date with USA in quarterfinals after cruising past New Zealand

    Sep 6, 2010, 10:00 PM EST

    As expected, it is USA vs. Russia on Thursday in the FIBA World Championships quarterfinals. Russia filled out its half of the bracket beating New Zealand 78-56, showing off some of the defense and the inside game that will give the USA their best challenge since Brazil (and maybe their best challenge so far period).…
