  1. Tyson Chandler wants Rasheed Wallace as part of Knicks

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:39 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Tyson Chandler acknowledges the Dallas Mavericks fans after being presented with his championship ring before their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    When it was reported that the Knicks were taking a hard look at Rasheed Wallace, a lot of Knicks fans rolled their eyes. Knicks haters just laughed. But Tyson Chandler — the guy Wallace would back up — wants Sheed in New York. Look at what he told the New York Post. “He looked good,’’…

  2. No playoff promises from Warriors’ Jackson this year

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    Last year Mark Jackson was coming to the head coach’s chair straight out of a broadcast booth where he was supposed to be opinionated and brash. He was in front of a new team ownership group that was brimming with confidence. Jackson played right into all of it and was talking playoffs for the Warriors.…

  3. Can the Raptors make the playoffs? Kyle Lowry says yes.

    Sep 27, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    Pity the Toronto Raptors — they are in a division with the Celtics, Knicks, Nets and Sixers. Four lock playoff teams. Throw in the Heat, Pacers and other teams from other playoff divisions and there is no easy path from Toronto to the post season this year. But Kyle Lowry thinks they can make it.…

  4. Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen had a dance-off

    Sep 27, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    So you think you can dance? Apparently the two best players of the Bulls dynasty period in the 1990s do. Monday night there was a surprise 47th birthday party for Scottie Pippen in Chicago and Michael Jordan was there, according to the New York Post. There were also plenty of people you’d expect — “World…

  5. No pressure Vinny Del Negro, but it’s the last year of your contract

    Sep 27, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    All season long the talk around the Los Angeles Clippers will be about contracts — Chris Paul will be a free agent next summer. It’s the smart move financially for him to become a free agent and re-sign with the Clippers, but that free agency gives him leverage. Enough leverage that pretty much every player…

  6. Jordan Crawford could start over Bradley Beal for Wizards

    Sep 27, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal, Ernie Grunfeld, Randy Wittman

    Bradley Beal looked like a guy who had potential at Summer League, but a guy who needs some work (he shot 30 percent from three, for example). Last season, Jordan Crawford looked like an NBA player who started 32 games last year and scored 14.7 points a game the season before. Beal may be the…

  7. Knicks like Josh Howard, just depends on ‘Sheed and 76ers

    Sep 27, 2012, 1:55 AM EDT

    Josh Howard Jazz

    Josh Howard got a training camp invitation from the 76ers and will be in the City of Brotherly Love next week. But it’s a non-guaranteed contract and he well may be cut on a team with Evan Turner, Thaddeus Young and Jason Richardson who can play Howard’s wing forward spot (although Young plays more at…

  8. Bulls to add depth at center, sign Kyrylo Fesenko

    Sep 26, 2012, 11:26 PM EDT

    FESENKO_KYRYLO

    He’s no Omer Asik, but he will have to do. The Bulls reportedly are about to add depth at center with the signing veteran Kyrylo Fesenko to a one-year, none guaranteed deal, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. The decision to sign him came after working him out on Monday. While this is a non-guaranteed deal…

  9. Video: Best NBA high top fades of the 1980s

    kenny walker

    It’s the middle of the week and we could all use a little break and a little laugh. Ideally a laugh at someone else’s expense. And few things are funnier than the hair styles of the 198os. NBA.com has been running its show “NB80′s” lately, which is a direct rip off of VHI’s “I Love…

  10. 76ers’ Wright says Bynum is better than Dwight Howard

    Sep 26, 2012, 7:14 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    We are still in the honeymoon period with Andrew Bynum in Philadelphia. Fans love him. Teammates love him. Coaches are excited about ways they can use him in the offense. That honeymoon will end, it always does. Ask every Philadelphia sports hero. It will be interesting to see how Bynum handles it when things turn,…

  11. Report: Grizzlies Darrell Arthur fractures leg. Ugh.

    Sep 26, 2012, 6:17 PM EDT

    ARTHUR_DARRELL

    UPDATE 6:17 pm: Good news, as fractures go this isn’t too bad. It is a non-displaced fracture that is going to keep him out of action for a few weeks, reports Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld. With training camp opening in a week he will not be ready to go yet, but for the start of…

  12. The Inbounds: Ellis and Jennings and the cliff of compromise

    Sep 26, 2012, 5:57 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Something’s gotta give in Milwaukee. (Check out our Bucks season preview here.) The Bucks traded their often-injured-but-still-awesome-when-he-played center Andrew Bogut last season to Golden State and took on Monta Ellis. Ellis was a promising young star. Then he was the guy who got injured in the moped accident. Then he was a terrific player again.…

  13. Rondo says his feud with Ray Allen is overblown

    Sep 26, 2012, 5:25 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The Rajon Rondo/Ray Allen story is not going away anytime soon — not with the Celtics and Heat opening the season against each other in just over a month. Not with the Heat getting their rings in front of the Celtics then taking the court with Allen now in red and white. If anything, Mr.…

  14. Video proof Dwight Howard is a Laker, working out with team

    Sep 26, 2012, 4:43 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    We all know Dwight Howard is a Laker — there were more stories about that then how bad the NFL replacement referees have been. Well, maybe not. Let’s just say it’s close. Still, to see it is something else. This is just a 30-second video but it is Howard working out with assistant coach Darvin Ham,…

  15. Nets’ Prokhorov talks learning from ‘Melo chase, Jay-Z

    Sep 26, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    Brooklyn New Arena Basketball

    The Nets swung big and missed a couple times. They went hard after Carmelo Anthony, but he ended up in Manhattan. They wanted Dwight Howard — there were even tampering rumors — but the Magic would not play along so he ended up on the other coast. Nets majority owner Mikhail Prokhorov is not a…

  16. Chris Bosh says abdominal issue healed, he is ready to roll

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:35 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    A lot of people don’t want to hear this, but among the key reasons the Heat should be better this year is health — they won a title with Dwyane Wade playing through a knee injury that required surgery and Chris Bosh coming back early from an abdominal strain (suffered on a dunk) before he…

  17. Rondo says Celtics are one of five contenders (and other stuff)

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    How many realistic NBA title contenders are there right now? Rajon Rondo thinks there are five, and he plays on one of them. Here is what he told Marc Spears of Yahoo in an interesting interview. “We won a championship and that’s great, but I don’t want to settle,” Rondo said. “I have a lot…

  18. NBA Season Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova   goes up for a shot against Toronto Raptors' Alan Anderson during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee Wisconsin

    Last season: Abort the mission! New plan! New plan! The Bucks slammed on the parking brake, wrenched the wheel and Tokyo Drifted in a new direction last season, abandoning the “all defense all the time” team built around Andrew Bogut and giving p on the fleeting hope Bogut will ever, ever be healthy. They swapped…

  19. You will not see much, if any, Kendrick Perkins in preseason

    Sep 26, 2012, 1:32 PM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins

    Thunder general manager Sam Presti sat down with the media on Wednesday to talk about the upcoming season, his love of music documentaries (seriously, he loves things like VH1’s Classic Albums show), James Harden’s contract and team expectations. On all of it, he pretty much stuck to the expected script. But there was one thing…

  20. Quote of the Day: Sam Presti loves classic Pink Floyd

    Sep 26, 2012, 12:52 PM EDT

    Serge Ibaka, Sam Presti

    “Well as I was saying about Dark Side of the Moon, it’s a really great album.” —Thunder GM Sam Presti, jokingly trying to change the topic when asked Wednesday about the contract status of James Harden, (via Royce Young on twitter). My guess is he was listening to “Money” over and over. That or “Us…
