  1. Evan Turner blames conditioning for getting his butt kicked in Summer League

    Aug 2, 2010, 12:35 PM EST

    Evan Turner got his butt kicked. And in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, he admitted it — Summer League was not good to him. “I’ve been playing pretty much every day against good competition,” Turner said. “It was really an eye-opener for me to get my butt kicked, but it was also a good…

  2. Clevelanders not done venting at LeBron, buy billboard

    Aug 2, 2010, 12:06 PM EST

    It takes time. We’ll forgive the fine people of Cleveland for not yet being over having their hearts ripped out and stomped on in a national television show. At least some of them are being clever about it. Like the Omada Group, which is paying $3,000 for a billboard about two miles from James’ Akron…

  3. Greg Oden confident he'll be good to go for camp

    Aug 2, 2010, 11:45 AM EST

    We’re three full seasons into Greg Oden’s NBA career, and he’s played just 82 games. It’s not fair. Not to the Blazers, who invested the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft in Oden, not to the Blazer faithful, and certainly not to Oden himself. Every nightmare must come to an end, but Oden’s…

  4. And the season schedule leaks begin: Orlando to open new arena against Heat Oct. 28

    Aug 2, 2010, 11:35 AM EST

    As it always does, the NBA has grand plans — they are going to unveil their opening games and the highlights (such as Christmas Day) on an NBATV special Tuesday night (7pm Eastern, if you want to set your DVR). But as our own Matt Moore noted at the time, it’s going to be hard…

  5. Suns about sign Gani Lawal for three years

    Aug 2, 2010, 11:13 AM EST

    UPDATE 11:08 AM: According to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic, it’s not a make-good deal after all. Despite earlier reports from the Republic pointing to a fully unguaranteed, make-good agreement, the Suns have signed Lawal to a three-year contract with the initial season fully guaranteed for $473,604. The second and third seasons will only…

  6. FIBA bans vuvuzelas for World Championships, kills the buzz

    Aug 2, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    The vuvuzela isn’t so much an instrument as it is a glorified kazoo, but that didn’t stop the now-mythical noisemaker from dominating coverage of the World Cup. Soccer/fútbol fans finally found the perfect audio accompaniment for their sport of choice: a bland, monotone noisemaker, significant pretty much solely because during the duration of the games,…

  7. Should the NBA adopt the NFL's franchise player tag?

    Aug 2, 2010, 10:42 AM EST

    LeBron James became an unrestricted free agent and left. Chris Bosh became an unrestricted free agent and left. Amare Stoudemire became an unrestricted free agent and left. Carlos Boozer became an unrestricted free agent and left. The radical shifting of the NBA landscape has some in the league (and some fans) asking if that much…

  8. Don Nelson may be back for one final season

    Aug 2, 2010, 9:29 AM EST

    The impression — even from new incoming owner Joe Lacob himself — is that there will be big changes for Golden State. Which is good, because what the Warriors have been doing has not worked for a long time. Not on the court in particular. Housecleaning is called for. Which means coach Don Nelson will…

  9. Police search home of Lorenzen Wright's ex-wife for clues in his murder

    Aug 2, 2010, 8:40 AM EST

    Sherra Wright, the ex-wife of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright, says she was the last person to see him alive. She told police he left her house the night of July 18 just fine, but Wright’s mother reported him missing four days later. On July 28, the murdered body of Wright was found outside Memphis.…

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

    Aug 1, 2010, 9:00 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 1, 2010, 7:40 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 1, 2010, 5:41 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 1, 2010, 2:30 PM EST

    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…

  14. Zydrunas Ilgauskas pens letter thanking Cleveland

    Aug 1, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    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,…

  15. Michael Jordan moving closer to Bobcats ops

    Aug 1, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 1, 2010, 9:05 AM EST

    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……

  17. The new Portland GM doesn't seem like the hesitant type

    Jul 31, 2010, 9:32 PM EST

    New Portland GM Rich Cho is settling in nicely. He’s got himself a plan, a philosophy, and even a restaurant with the kinds of options he wants! And you can learn all about it from Jason Quick of the Oregonian! Quick has your quintessential “Get to know your new GM who replaces your favorite GM…

  18. Ryan Anderson isn't messing around this summer

    Jul 31, 2010, 7:30 PM EST

    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),…

  19. George Hill: Tony Parker is not expendable

    Jul 31, 2010, 5:59 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 31, 2010, 5:21 PM EST

    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…
