  1. Andray Blatche and Mirza Teletovic fight in Nets practice

    Oct 14, 2013, 11:29 AM EDT

    Mirza Teletovic, Andray Blatche

    The Nets could be paying more than $189 million for players next season, and obviously, such a payroll comes with expectations. And expectations come with pressure. Brooklyn needed overtime to the Wizards and then lost by 11 to the Pistons on Saturday, Obviously, those are just preseason games, but it’s possible to see how a…

  2. Iman Shumpert trims flattop from existence

    Oct 14, 2013, 10:46 AM EDT

    Iman Shumpert, Terrence Ross, Landry Fields

    I’ve previously mocked the idea of the Knicks starting anyone but Iman Shumpert, who seemed to have clearly earned the job last season and done nothing to lose it. No more. Start J.R. Smith. Start Tim Hardaway Jr. Start Chris Douglas-Roberts. Start Toure Murry. I don’t care. Shumpert is really tempting fate with this haircut.…

  3. Cavaliers still searching for small forward to replace that guy who left town

    Oct 14, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Earl Clark, Miroslav Raduljica

    Since LeBron James bolted Cleveland for Miami, the small forward spot has been a black hole for the Cavaliers. There was Jamario Moon. Then Omri Casspi. Then Alonzo Gee, who is still on the roster. Now Earl Clark is getting a shot. Not exactly a murderer’s row. The Cavaliers have built a team they like…

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Nene does a lot for his native Brazil. He goes back every summer and donates both money and his time to charitable causes, when he retires he said he plans to return and work at a church down there. But what he doesn’t do much is play for the Brazilian national team. He did it…

  5. With Trey Burke sidelined, are Jazz in market for point guard?

    Oct 14, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    No sooner than I had picked Utah’s Trey Burke as my Rookie of the Year prediction, he goes and breaks a finger. Burke could be out 3-6 weeks, according to his father, but we don’t have anything official yet. Bottom line is he is missing the start of the season and could be out for…

    Kobe Bryant

    Last season: It was supposed to be yet another year spent contending for a championship for a storied Lakers franchise that already has 16 of them. L.A. loaded up with free agent talent in Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, and was on paper the team most believed would stand in the way of a second straight…

    Kobe Bryant

    There’s still no timetable for his return, but for Kobe Bryant fans — and for the Lakers playoff hopes — Monday in China was a good day. Kobe said he was very close to practicing on the court with the team. After suggesting he would practice, Kobe ran around the concourse of the arena in…

    Rick Adelman

    Skip: You guys. You lollygag the ball around the infield. You lollygag your way down to first. You lollygag in and out of the dugout. You know what that makes you? Larry! Larry: Lollygaggers! Skip: Lollygaggers. — “Bull Durham” Rick Adelman didn’t exactly quote “Bull Durham” when talking about his Timberwolves team through four preseason…

  9. Nick Young becomes second Lakers player victimized by toboggan at Great Wall of China (VIDEO)

    It’s one thing for the NBA to send its teams abroad to promote the game internationally, but it’s quite another for the players to engage in such dangerous local attractions. Apparently the Great Wall of China isn’t just something you stroll across, but it also features a toboggan run that you can sled down at…

    New Orleans Pelicans v Houston Rockets

    Jeremy Lin wasn’t the only one putting on a show in the Rockets’ preseason win over the Pacers in Taiwan.

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Andre Miller is entering his 15th NBA season, and he’s always been considered one of the highest-IQ players at his position. His “old man game” is fun to watch in an entirely different way than say, Nuggets starting point guard Ty Lawson, given Miller’s style that has him using his brain far more often than…

    Jordan Brand launched Chris Paul‘s latest signature shoe this week, the CP3.VII. In the video clip above, Paul tries explaining a “riquickulous” move he made in his new sneakers, but as you can see, it gets a little convoluted since it all happened so fast. There are a couple more spots that are similarly-themed, including…

    Chris Kaman

    The Lakers are in China as part of the NBA’s Global Games schedule, with two preseason games on tap against the Golden State Warriors. Part of the excursion involves the team taking in some of the sights, although Chris Kaman seemed to get a little too aggressive with one of the attractions, and wound up…

    Jeremy Lin, Fancisco Garcia

    Right at the start of Sunday’s exhibition game in Taiwan, Jeremy Lin stepped up and knocked down a three. Linsanity never really died in Lin’s ancestral home of Taiwan and by the end of the game Sunday it felt like New York at the peak of the craze. That opening three sparked a first half…

    Oct 13, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    DeAndre Jordan is going to be possibly the most important player for the Clippers this season. Doc Rivers has already tabbed him as being part of the team’s so-called Big Three along with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, and Rivers has been grooming Jordan to use his athleticism to anchor the defense much in the…

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose sat out of the Bulls’ preseason game against the Wizards in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Saturday with soreness in his surgically repaired left knee.
