  1. Bernard King: Pure scoring machine (VIDEO)

    Sep 4, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT


    Bernard King is going into the Hall of Fame this weekend because he is one of the best pure scorers the NBA has ever seen. We showed you how he dropped 50 in back-to-back games, but here is another highlight video from the league about just what a great scoring machine King was. Enjoy this,…

  2. Lakers’ Ryan Kelly slow to heal from surgeries, may miss start of season

    Sep 4, 2013, 10:16 AM EDT

    Michigan State v Duke

    If you’re a big man who can knock down an outside shot you will play in Mike D’Antoni’s system. Which is good news for Lakers draft pick Ryan Kelly out of Duke. Now all he has to do is get on the court. Which may take longer than expected following another surgery on his right…

  3. Jason Kidd to buy half of Jay-Z’s ownership share of Nets

    Sep 4, 2013, 9:42 AM EDT

    NBA Draft Basketball

    He’s not just the coach, he’s the owner… of a sliver of the team. Remember that Jay Z owned 0.1608 percent of the Brooklyn Nets — a small part of the team but it gave him room to boast on tracks and be at the heart of the redesign of the franchise’s look when it…

  4. Jeanie Buss says she can tease brother Jim about D’Antoni hire

    Sep 4, 2013, 8:49 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    The way the Mike D’Antoni hiring went down — with the awkward flirtation with Phil Jackson in front of it — didn’t really sit well with Jeanie Buss. She’s the co-owner of the Lakers along with brother Jim Buss and the rest of the Buss family, but she’s engaged to Jackson. So, she teases her…

  5. Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan dressed up as Captain Planet

    Sep 4, 2013, 8:01 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    That is the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan dressed up as Captain Planet. You remember Captain Planet, right? That horrible (but popular) 1990s cartoon with a message about as subtle as an Oliver Stone film (the message about taking care of the earth is swell and all, but man that was just not a good show… it’s…

  6. Might the Lakers have an interest in Michael Beasley?

    Sep 4, 2013, 12:12 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    The short answer to the Michael Beasley question in Los Angeles should be a resounding “no,” for a variety of reasons. But believe it or not, the case can be made, so let’s break down exactly why it’s unlikely that the Lakers would bother to pursue the talented but troubled forward who was waived by…

  7. Rasual Butler agrees to non-guaranteed contract with the Pacers

    Sep 3, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Rasual Butler played 10 NBA seasons for five different teams, but couldn’t catch on with anyone last year. Instead of taking his more than $20 million in gross career earnings and drifting into retirement, Butler worked on getting better in the D-League, and averaged 17.8 points in 31 games for Tulsa. He continued that comeback…

  8. Lakers announce signing of Shawne Williams

    Sep 3, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT


    The Lakers announced they’ve signed free agent forward Shawne Williams on Tuesday, and while contract terms were not disclosed, it would be difficult to envision the team inking him to a deal that was anything more than partially guaranteed for this season, at best. Williams was out of the league completely last year, after having…

  9. Report: Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks questioned by police

    Sep 3, 2013, 8:55 PM EDT

    Maurice Cheeks

    Update: WXYZ ABC 7: Birmingham police are investigating a possible domestic incident involving Detroit Piston’s new head coach Maurice Cheeks. Officers say they were called to an address along Wooodward Avenue late Friday night after  someone inside called police. Cheeks was never arrested, but was brought into the police station for questioning and later released.…

    lebron locker

    As our friends over at CBT noted earlier today, LeBron James received his very own locker inside the new Ohio State basketball facility, which was unveiled to the media on Tuesday. You may recall that James never played college basketball anywhere, and didn’t attend the university in any capacity. But being from Akron, he’s always…

  11. Amir Johnson loses in tug-of-war with elephant (VIDEO)

    Amir Johnson elephant

    Doesn’t the headline kind of say it all? Toronto Raptor Amir Johnson went to Thailand this offseason and when in Thailand… you get in a tug-of-war with an elephant. Sure, why not. I’ve never been so despite my inclination I can’t say for sure this isn’t the norm.

  12. Report: Mike Bibby working out with Spurs at mini-camp

    Sep 3, 2013, 5:55 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby

    We told you earlier this summer Mike Bibby was looking to play one more year in the NBA, then follow his father into coaching (although Mike wouldn’t put it that way). Problem was, he was unimpressive with the Knicks two seasons ago — 39 games, 2.9 points per game with a PER of 7.8 —…

  13. Celtics’ Jared Sullinger releases statement on arrest

    Sep 3, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Italy Celtics  EA7 Emporio Armani Basketball

    Jared Sullinger turned himself Tuesday to police in Waltham (a city 10 miles outside the heart of Boston) and was quickly arraigned on charges of battery, malicious destruction of property and witness intimidation in a domestic abuse case involving in incident with his girlfriend on Saturday night. The judge set the bail at $5,000 and…

  14. Gary Payton picks Golden State to win Western Conference

    Sep 3, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Golden State is going to be a trendy pick for some this season. They have the shooting in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, they have added Andre Iguodala to help them in transition and with perimeter defense, they have a double-double machine in David Lee coming back, they bring Harrison Barnes off the bench. Optimism…

  15. Suns make the expected official, waive Michael Beasley

    Sep 3, 2013, 3:17 PM EDT


    We’ve been telling you this was coming. Not long after Michael Beasley’s latest arrest for marijuana possession, our own Brett Pollakoff laid out how the Suns could use the stretch provision to lessen their hit in letting Beasley go. Then as part of the recent Caron Butler trade we told you that cleared out just…

  16. Pelicans’ players working out together, Anthony Davis helped organize it

    Sep 3, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    The Pelicans are one of the more interesting teams in the NBA this season. New Orleans, reportedly on the orders of owner Tom Benson, jumpstarted their build through the draft plan with an aggressive offseason — they got Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans to pair with guys like Eric Gordon and Anthony Davis. It’s a…

  17. Check out the top 10 plays of Gary Payton (VIDEO)

    Sep 3, 2013, 2:12 PM EDT

    Gary Payton

    This weekend, Gary Payton heads into the Hall of Fame. As it should be. What I love about this top 10 put together by is that it includes some defensive plays and some passes. He’s famed for his defense (he thinks John Stockton was his toughest cover), but he averaged 16.3 points and 6.7…

  18. Kings want McLemore to work on creating his own shot

    Sep 3, 2013, 1:51 PM EDT

    Kings Mavericks Basketball

    Even when he was ice cold for a stretch at Summer League, when you watched Ben McLemore go up for a jumper you couldn’t help but admire the form. It just seemed obvious that eventually the shot will fall. However, the Kings have bigger plans for McLemore than as a spot-up three guy. He’s athletic…

  19. Watch some Clippers play a little flag football (VIDEO)

    Sep 3, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    We’re all ready for some football (remember the NFL season kicks off right here on NBC Thursday night). Blake Griffin and some other Clippers were ready as well and they took part in a flag football game for charity hosted by Matt Barnes and Snoop Dogg. Among the celebrities taking part are Griffin, DeAndre Jordan,…

  20. Del Negro says Odom can still play, but that’s not what is important right now

    Sep 3, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom Clippers

    Lamar Odom the basketball player is and should be a secondary thought right now. It is Lamar Odom the person that has hit a deep downward spiral, one that has culminated in a drug problem and a DUI arrest, who needs help. There are friends from the game around him trying to reach him, trying…
