    Aug 30, 2013, 1:57 AM EDT

    SPORTS SPECTACULAR & KVBFF PRESENT: KOBE UP CLOSE Hosted By Jimmy Kimmel

    If I can run. I can jump #justdoit #40+ #vinovine https://t.co/CcH3eUCJfl — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) August 30, 2013 While we thought Kobe Bryant would be doing some pool work to recover from his Achilles surgery, this is not exactly what we pictured. Kobe posted this Vine Thursday night of him jumping off a 10-meter platform…

  2. John Salley talks about veganism and the NBA

    Aug 29, 2013, 11:19 PM EDT

    Sports Spectacular 2013 - Inside

    The NBA can be a pretty testosterone driven world — and in that world men eat meat. Lots of it. Maybe boiled chicken breasts, maybe steaks, Kobe Bryant mixes in the odd In-n-Out burger as his vice (which is better than 5 Guys, but that’s another debate for another day). But there are vegetarians in…

  3. Warriors’ GM talks about long road to them landing Iguodala

    Aug 29, 2013, 8:41 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    After a second round playoff run and the most optimistic season the Warriors fans have had in decades, the front office could have just tried to bring the band back together and grow the team that way. Instead, they came out aggressive getting into the fringes of the Dwight Howard conversation. But that was a…

  4. Suns formally sign first-round pick Alex Len

    Aug 29, 2013, 7:53 PM EDT

    Draft Suns Basketball

    Alex Len was a guy moving up draft boards heading into the June draft, not because he worked out — he didn’t because he had surgery on his left ankle, to be followed by right ankle surgery — but mainly because he didn’t. Len has potential, and we never really saw that at Maryland because…

  5. Andre Drummond working on his moves at airport

    Aug 29, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    He’s no Nate Robinson, but this is pretty great from Andre Drummond: What makes this work is Andre Drummond is a hulking human being — 6’11” and pushing 300 pounds. When that starts coming at you and making moves, you flinch. Doing it to unsuspecting people in an airport could almost be a Japanese game…

  6. It’s official: Caron Butler traded to Milwaukee Bucks

    Aug 29, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks get a Racine native who can help them out immediately at the three, where Carlos Delfino could be a little slow to come around following off-season foot surgery. The Phoenix Suns saved more than $5 million and brought in a couple interesting young pieces. The trade we first told you about last…

  7. Timberwolves going to try some Derrick Williams at the three

    Aug 29, 2013, 4:37 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    Last season, Derrick Williams played the majority of his minutes at the four spot, where the banged up Timberwolves most needed him. When they went small he got a little time at the five (he scored well as a center but as you might imagine struggled to defend). And he played a sliver of time…

  8. The Laker Bros want to say “thank you”

    Aug 29, 2013, 4:07 PM EDT

    Lakers bros

    You remember the Laker Bros? Back in November Deadspin helped make them cult heroes for their stereotypical Lakers fan response during a game — only Lakers fans wear sunglasses inside at a game so they can take them off David Caruso style at a dramatic moment. The gif was dissected everyway imaginable. Deadspin found and interviewed…

  9. DeQuan Jones doesn’t like NCAA’s Manziel ruling

    Aug 29, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    DeQuan Jones

    DeQuan Jones played four years at the University of Miami, but he wasn’t really considered an NBA prospect. That said he got in with the Magic and hung with them last season, getting in 63 games and being a regular part of the rotation. Not a good part, really, but part. Then the Magic drafted…

  10. Matt Bonner envisions himself as the world’s worst boss (VIDEO)

    Aug 29, 2013, 2:34 PM EDT

    111730_Matt_Bonner

    Matt Bonner‘s brother Luke is like you — a guy with a regular job. We’ll, he’s probably taller than you, but you get the idea. A guy just trying to make his way in the world. Luke works for GY&K Marketing in New Hampshire and the company is having a little fun with Matt — next…

  11. Mavs plan to use Devin Harris as both point, shooting guard

    Aug 29, 2013, 2:05 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Where does Devin Harris fit in a Dallas backcourt that has Jose Calderon and Monta Ellis starting at the one and the two, plus a lot of interesting young prospects such as Gal Mekel, Wayne Ellington, Shake Larkin, and Ricky Ledo? A little at the one, a little at the two. Once Harris gets back…

  12. Rockets make Ronnie Brewer signing official

    Aug 29, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v New York Knicks

    There are a lot of interesting ingredients in Houston, but how the final dish turns out remains to be seen. The latest of those interesting pickups is Ronnie Brewer, and that deal with the Rockets has become official, the team announced. Brewer is a good defensive wing who uses very little in terms of offense.…

  13. Charles Barkley continues to rip Sixers offseason strategy

    Aug 29, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Charles Barkley

    We get it that Charles Barkley doesn’t get it. The Hall of Fame forward often associated with his Philadelphia years has been the most prominent critic of the Sixers off-season strategies — ripping apart the roster go get bad and particularly GM Sam Hinkie taking a long time to hire Brett Brown as coach (remember…

  14. FIBA Americas tips off Friday. We breakdown why you might care.

    FIBA_Americas_Championship_Venezuela_FC

    Team USA had a mini-camp workout for some younger players this summer, but that was basically it for the senior men’s team. USA Basketball largely gets to take the summer off and gear up for the World Championships in Spain next summer. But much of the rest of the world is going at it in…

  15. Royce White helps open mental health center in Houston

    Aug 29, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Royce White

    Royce White has been clear from the start that he wanted to help change the perception of people battling mental illness. He was the No. 16 pick by the Houston Rockets in the 2012 draft but the potential point forward (he had those kinds of skills coming out of college) has never played a second…

  16. Watch DeAndre Jordan get punched in the face (VIDEO)

    Aug 29, 2013, 11:24 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    You can be sure Vinny Del Negro wanted to do this once or twice the last couple seasons. We can ask Doc Rivers about it in five months after another late rotation. That is Clippers center DeAndre Jordan getting punch in the face in slow motion. Why? It is apparently part of Comedy Central’s Roast of…

  17. Ivan Johnson agrees to deal to play in China

    Aug 29, 2013, 10:58 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks

    A couple weeks ago Ivan Johnson gave NBA teams an ultimatum: give me a decent offer of I’m going to play overseas next season. Nothing came and Johnson was true to his word — he reached a deal to play next season in China, reports Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He will play…

  18. Report: New Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer arrested, charged with DUI

    Aug 29, 2013, 9:04 AM EDT

    Mike Budenholzer

    Mike Budenholzer, hired by the Hawks three months ago, has just made a terrible early impression in Atlanta. Mike Morris of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: A trooper stopped Budenholzer for having no tail lights, according to the State Patrol. The trooper detected an odor of alcohol, administered a field sobriety test, then placed Budenholzer under arrest.…

  19. Report: Bucks Carlos Delfino could miss start of season due to foot surgery

    Aug 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Image (1) Delfino_game-thumb-250x352-10319.jpg for post 1603

    Why did the Bucks make a move to bring in Caron Butler at the expense of a couple younger players? Maybe in part because they know that they could use some help at the three at the start of the season because the guy they had penciled in there isn’t going to be around. Carlos…

  20. Report: Suns’ Butler to Bucks trade for Smith, Kravtsov; finalized Thursday

    Aug 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    We brought you news of this potential trade last night and now you wake up to the news that the deal is all but official. The Suns have agreed to trade Caron Butler to the Milwaukee Bucks for guard Ish Smith and center Slava Kravtsov, reports Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. The deal will…
