  1. Report: World Peace to start for Knicks, Bargnani to come off bench

    Oct 29, 2013, 7:03 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    Officially, Mike Woodson says he will not detail his starting lineup until Wednesday, not long before his New York Knicks tip off the season at home hosting the Milwaukee Bucks. However, Carmelo Anthony all but directly said that Metta World Peace will get the start and Andrea Bargnani will come off the bench, reports the…

    Over the summer, the Dallas Mavericks made what seemed a smart move, hiring Gersson Rosas away from the Houston Rockets to be their new general manager. He was going to be a new voice, bringing an analytics bent, to the Mavs front office. That lasted about three months. Tuesday multiple reports came out that Rosas…

  3. Chandler Parsons leaks Patrick Beverley, not Jeremy Lin, to start at point for Rockets

    Oct 29, 2013, 5:53 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin, Patrick Beverly, Russell Westbrook

    The last couple of preseason games, Patrick Beverley started at the point for the Houston Rockets and Jeremy Lin came off the bench as the sixth man. We’d written before this could be coming. It was something the Rockets had toyed with all preseason. Yet Kevin McHale was going all Bill Belichick when asked about his…

  4. Harrison Barnes out for first two games due to foot injury

    Oct 29, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Five

    Expectations are high in the Bay Area — their beloved Warriors are finally good, making it to the second round of the playoffs last season, then they went out and added Andre Iguodala this summer. But this is not how you want to start the season. Harrison Barnes will be out at least the first…

  6. Five NBA players likely to get traded this season

    Oct 29, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Jameer Nelson

    When I started compiling this list more than a week ago, Marcin Gortat was the guy on top of it — then his trade happened earlier than anyone expected. The Wizards want to make the playoffs this year, the Suns want to tank and so they had a common ground. Now who is most likely…

  7. Your starting Laker power forward opening night: Shawne Williams

    Oct 29, 2013, 2:41 PM EDT

    Shawne Williams

    In case you still wondered if this was going to be a rough season for the Lakers, we bring you this bit of news. Shawne Williams is the starting power forward for the Lakers in Tuesday night’s opener against the Los Angeles Clippers. That is the same Shawne Williams who was out of the league…

  8. How about a couple dunks on Vine, including one over Jordan (in poster form)

    Oct 29, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    I know, I just want the NBA season to tip-off tonight as well, enough with the waiting. What are we going to do, discuss the Dwight Howard season with the Lakers for the 5,493, 672nd time? So to kill some time, how about a couple of dunks recorded on Vine. Here is Andre Drummond throwing…

  9. Celtics suspend Sullinger for opener following offseason arrest

    Oct 29, 2013, 1:24 PM EDT

    Jared Sullinger

    The charges have been dropped after the girlfriend and alleged victim refused to testify against him, but there are still repercussions from Jared Sullinger’s offseason arrest for on a domestic violence charge. The Boston Celtics have suspended Sullinger from the team’s opening night game Wednesday night in Toronto, an announcement the organization made Tuesday. He…

  10. Quote of the Day: Bosh knows Bulls want to…. go No. 2 on Heat’s party

    Oct 29, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    “When Dallas got their rings (Christmas Day 2011, the first game after the lockout), we wanted to embarrass them on their home floor, wanted to defecate on their night. We know (the Bulls) want to do that to us and they want to spoil what we have going.” —Miami’s Chris Bosh, speaking with the Miami…

  11. NBA GM anonymously admits he, owner planned to tank season

    Oct 29, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    On the day the NBA season tips off, one of the big stories is tanking. David Stern (and Adam Silver) has to feel just a little nauseous about it. We all know that the coming 2014 draft is loaded with potential franchise changing talent — Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle, Aaron Gordon, Marcus Smart, Dante Exum,…

  12. Toronto’s Amir Johnson makes a very good zombie (VIDEO)

    Oct 29, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    AUSTRALIA-ZOMBIE WALK

    Zombie Walks are a Halloween tradition in some cities (I stumbled into the one in my city last weekend). Toronto has a huge one and the Raptors’ Amir Johnson decided to go all out. Thing is, even if you don’t find zombies intimidating a 6’9″, 210 pound one pretty much is by definition. He was…

  13. Record 92 foreign players on NBA rosters to start season

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    SPO-BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    Just in case you had any doubt the NBA is a global league at the forefront of a global game… There are a record 92 foreign players on NBA rosters to start the season hailing from 39 countries, the league announced. That is more than 20 percent of the league. The number is up from…

  14. 5 teams that could prevent the Miami Heat from winning the 2014 NBA title

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    The Miami Heat will open the 2013-14 NBA season at home against the Bulls on Tuesday, after receiving their championship rings and raising a banner to the rafters for the second straight season. They’ll also open the year as the favorites to win a third straight title, but history has not been kind to teams…

  15. Wilson Chandler out for Nuggets opener, Lawson may join him

    Oct 29, 2013, 10:29 AM EDT

    Wilson Chandler

    It’s not really a surprise, Wilson Chandler has been battling a hamstring injury for weeks and those are slow to heal, but now it is official: Chandler is on the Nuggets inactive list for the season opener Wednesday at Sacramento. That is certainly a blow because in an ideal world the Nuggets rotation at the…

  16. LeBron says Iverson pound-for-pound probably the greatest ever

    Oct 29, 2013, 9:58 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson Sixers

    Allen Iverson is one of the most influential players on the current generation of NBA players. Yes, Jordan gets mentioned, and younger players talk about Kobe Bryant but Iverson’s fearless style on and off the court has a lot of admirers. Put LeBron James in that group. Talking about Iverson’s official retirement Wednesday when the…

  17. D’Antoni on running offense through Howard: “I think it was all (politics)”

    Oct 29, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Dwight Howard

    If you haven’t heard, Dwight Howard wasn’t happy in Mike D’Antoni’s offense, and the feeling was pretty mutual. What, you heard that already? Okay, during the preseason this whole storyline has been overplayed more than “Blurred Lines,” but as the season tips off tonight, the Lakers coach decided to answer a reporters’ question in a…

  18. Three players who stood out in the NBA preseason

    Oct 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    In general, you can’t read too much into what happens in the preseason. Star players are rested or play limited minutes, coaches experiment with lineups, effort is inconsistent at best, guys who will be buried on the bench or in the D-League get big run, and nobody game plans much. What you can see sometimes…

  19. Brian Shaw leaning toward starting Hickson over Faried opening night

    Oct 29, 2013, 12:44 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    If you wondered why reports had surfaced that Denver was shopping around Kenneth Faried, here’s a hint as to why. Nuggets’ coach Brian Shaw is leaning toward starting J.J. Hickson over Kenneth Faried in the Nuggets opener Wednesday at Sacramento (via the Nuggets twitter account). Part of that is that Faried is coming off a…

  20. Report: Donald Sterling almost blew up Bledsoe trade, Clippers summer

    Oct 28, 2013, 11:13 PM EDT

    Donald Sterling, Rochelle Sterling

    Things are different around the Clippers organization now compared to even five years ago, let alone a decade. It’s not just the winning on the court, there is more professionalism around the entire organization. But they are still owned by Donald Sterling, the man who is the reason for the decades of futility. This summer…
