    Maybe when you’re a member of the paparazzi and you spend your days on stakeouts in the bushes near a celebrity’s home, things lose a little perspective. Case in point, the lawsuit filed against the Clippers Baron Davis, as reported on TMZ.com The photog — not our guy — claims he and a pack of…

  2. Training camps is almost over, time for Erick Dampier to make a decision

    If one were cynical, one might think that free agent center Erick Dampier has taken his sweet time making a decision on where he will play this season just to avoid training camp. We are that cynical. But training camp is almost over, so it’s time and Dampier is about to choose a team. Probably…

  3. Heat waive Shavlik Randolph, Kenny Hasbrouck

    The end of the Heat bench — the guys we’re talking about today then likely not mentioning again all season — is starting to shake itself out. The Heat have cut loose Shavlik Randolph and Kenny Hasbrouck, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel on twitter. What that means is that there is one…

  4. Raymond Felton is really the man who can revive New York basketball

    Italy Nba Basketball

    The Knicks are back. Massive billboards in Times Square proclaim it, so it must be true. And it would be good for the league, in the same way it is good for baseball to have the Yankees in the playoffs. New York is good for the league. Amar’e Stoudemire has brought his high-flying dunks and…

  5. Jerry West admits drafting Drew Gooden over Amar’e Stoudemire was a mistake. No kidding.

    Nobody is harder on Jerry West than Jerry West. Nobody. Read the brilliant biography by Roland Lazenby and you get the portrait of a man haunted by failure and more relieved than joyous about success. So when you ask West about his time as the head of the Memphis Grizzlies basketball side and ask if…

  6. Amar’e Stoudemire starting to feel at home in the Garden

    Oct 20, 2010, 10:24 AM EST

    How good the Knicks will be this season remains to be seen, but they will be a lot more entertaining. And on any given night, Amar’e Stoudemire can just go off. Like putting up 39 points in a preseason game.

  7. Kevin Durant wanted Nenad Krstic to feel the love, too

    Just some more proof that the Oklahoma City locker room vibe is different than other teams in the NBA… Sports Illustrated NBA preview magazine hit the streets Wednesday featuring Kevin Durant on the cover. Which makes sense — he’s a budding superstar and all — and is a welcome break from the expected Miami Heat…

  8. Josh Childress breaks fingertip, out at least one week

    Jchildress

    At least in Greece when something like this happened he could numb the pain with Ouzo… The Suns Josh Childress fractured the fingertip on the index finger of his right hand (his shooting hand) during the Suns Tuesday night exhibition game against the Warriors, according to the Associated Press. He will sit out a week,…

  9. Knicks fans, do you realize with ‘Melo you get a lot of contested jumpers?

    Knicks fans are dreaming of Carmelo Anthony like children at Christmas — a top forward to put along side Amar’e Stoudemire and form two-thirds of the dynasty needed to beat the Heat and bring Willis Reed-like glory back to Madison Square Garden. Except, can Anthony really do that? No doubt he can put points up…

  10. Target return dates for Nuggets: Birdman Dec. 1, Martin on New Years Day

    On the night of New Year’s day, when your hangover is finally gone and you settle in for a disappointing Fiesta Bowl featuring Oklahoma and Utah, something else may catch your attention. Kenyon Martin may be back in an NBA game. George Karl said Tuesday that he hoped to have Martin back by Jan. 1,…

  11. Report: Knicks making progress on Carmelo Anthony trade (or he may stay put)

    New York has always been the team at the top of Carmelo Anthony’s wish list as he tried to force a trade out of Denver (through back channels, as not to be fined). Now it appears there may be progress in making that wish come true. In recent days the Knicks have made significant steps…

  12. Doc Rivers reports he’s cancer free after surgery

    This is very good news, the last thing we want to see is another top coach with throat cancer. Doc Rivers returned to the Celtics practice today and said that biopsies taken during his Sunday surgery to relieve pressure on his vocal chords (that kept him out of practice Monday) came back as benign. He…

  13. Mavericks bring in Rashad McCants for a look

    Oct 19, 2010, 8:23 PM EST

    mccants_sitting

    Dallas is a looking for a guy to maybe be an insurance policy on a team built to win now. Rashad McCants maybe can help there, he is a guy who can put up points. Not terribly efficiently, and he zones out on defense, plus he’s had run ins with coaches. But he can score.…

  14. Another look at ESPN’s Marvel Comics-themed season preview, featuring the Miami Heat

    A little more than a week ago, ESPN and Marvel Comics announced their plans to release an NBA season preview issue of ESPN the Magazine featuring the characters and iconography of the Marvel universe. The first two images released featured Kobe Bryant and a number of other NBA stars, and this latest image, provided by…

  15. Eddie House to practice with Heat Wednesday, play Thursday

    Eddie House has been cleared to get off the bench and go… well, to the Miami Heat bench. But from there get in the game. House has been out of training camp, recovering from off-season shoulder surgery, but doctors cleared him on Tuesday, according to a tweet from our own Ira Winderman, writing for the…

  16. Josh Howard creates a nice Web site, that a “respected leader” does not make

    Oct 19, 2010, 5:29 PM EST

    jhoward

    I get Wizards owner Ted Leonsis is about second chances. Second chances for a struggling franchise, second chances for Gilbert Arenas. We need that in sports and just in life — people screw up but that is different than being a screw up. Josh Howard is getting a second chance. A chance to play after…

  17. Quote of the day: Mark Jackson thinks Reggie Miller likes all the technicals

    reggie-miller

    “If I was a guy like Reggie Miller I’d love the rule because it would add three or four points a night to my scoring total from technical fouls.” —ESPN analyst Mark Jackson, during a conference call Tuesday, where both he and fellow analyst Jeff Van Gundy said they do not like the new enforcement…

  18. NBA Season Preview: The Sacramento Kings

    Last season: 25-57, in a year that was really all about figuring out that Tyreke Evans is a star you can anchor a team around. He is. And they found a nice young core to go around him. Head Coach: Paul Westphal, who did a pretty good job trying to build young team and getting…

  19. Ken Jeong and Derrick Rose selling some shoes

    Oct 19, 2010, 2:17 PM EST

    The new Adidas commercial series with Ken Jeong as “mogul and cheetah owner Slim Chin” are oddly amusing. This is the second one (Dwight Howard was first) and it works for Derrick Rose — and adiZero Rose kicks.

  20. Keith Bogans as starter in Chicago? It may well happen.

    Everyone had just assumed that Ronnie Brewer would be the starting two guard in Chicago this season. Then Brewer battled a hamstring injury while Keith Bogans has gone out, started all six games in the preseason and has knocked down 52.9 percent of his threes (9 of 17). Suddenly everyone is thinking Bogans may be…
