    Oct 4, 2012, 12:25 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    For the most part, NBA players have been backed the NBA’s new penalties for floppers — plays will be reviewed by the league office and guys will be warned for the first instance and fined after that up to $30,000 for the fifth incident.

    Royce White

    Royce White, the No. 16 pick of the Houston Rockets in the June draft, is still not at Rockets camp. The talented and versatile forward fell out of the lottery in part because teams were wary of the anxiety disorder he struggles with. White has a fear of flying. At times a paralyzing fear. He…

  8. Video: Blake Griffin with 75 foot shot… and some dunks

    Oct 4, 2012, 10:11 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    If Blake Griffin knows how to do one thing, it’s put on a show. Teams right now are doing their public scrimmages (something they are required to do, a remnant of the lockout before last as a gift to the fans) and usually these are not much. But Griffin is a walking show and so…

    Oct 4, 2012, 9:47 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Media Day

    We’re still in the honeymoon phase with the Lakers and Dwight Howard — not that they are ever going to fall out of love with him, but the relationship hasn’t been tested yet. Right now it’s all champagne wishes and caviar dreams. He’s practicing with the team and all the reports are glowing. Which makes…

  10. Video: Trailer for Brooklyn Nets “The Association”

    Oct 4, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    brooklyn-nets-logo-0

    If you haven’t seen it, The Association is NBA TV’s version of the HBO/NFL show “Hard Knocks.” And let’s be clear, Hard Knocks is better for two key reasons: 1) That show is run by HBO, where The Association is run by the NBA which scrubs anything vaguely controversial or embarrassing from the show; 2)…

  11. Miami Heat bomb away from three in preseason scrimmage

    Oct 4, 2012, 2:08 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Ray Allen, James Jones

    Judging what an NBA team will look like based on an in-house scrimmage is a lot like trying to tell if a movie is going to be any good from the trailer. It’s an exercise in missed judgment. I mean, “Taken” looked good in a trailer. (Good enough that they made a sequel, I guess.)…

  12. Report: Tracy McGrady considering playing in China

    Oct 4, 2012, 1:15 AM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    Reality is sinking in for Tracy McGrady — training camps are open and underway, teams basically have their rosters set, Rasheed Wallace hasn’t played in the NBA in two seasons but he’s got a contract, yet McGrady can’t find a team to give him a shot. Well, not on this continent anyway. And without other…

    Jason Terry

    That’s funny stuff. Jason Terry is taking to Boston and its fans in a way we haven’t seen since… well Shaq, but not a lot of people before them. He seems to really love being a Celtic and being in Bean Town. We’ll see how all that plays out on the court.

  15. NBA Players union to file grievance over new flopping rules

    Oct 3, 2012, 7:34 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Paul Pierce, flop

    When asked, players generally have been supportive of the new NBA anti-flopping rules and fines that were announced by the league office on Wednesday. Because they all think they have been victimized by floppers (but would never do it themselves). The players’ union, not so happy. The union has filed a grievance with the league…

    Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah gestures during media day for their upcoming NBA basketball season in Deerfield

    Joakim Noah is practicing full out and says his ankle is 100 percent healthy. Finally. He’s good to go.

He was talking preventative medicine — you know, the thing your doctor…

  17. The Inbounds: Chris Bosh and being what you’re not your way

    Oct 3, 2012, 4:45 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    Chris Bosh has accepted that he has to play center for the Miami Heat. He doesn’t want to, it’s not what he has preferred, not from the moment he signed up for the Triad in South Beach. He likes his finesse game, feels that he’s better as a four, likes the freedom of power forward,…

    Oct 3, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    iverson-turkey

    Heck, I’d pay to see this. Maybe more than the Heat/Clippers exhibition games that tip off in China in just more than a week. Allen Iverson and Jason Williams are going to play in an exhibition game in Beijing against Stephon Marbury and his team, the Beijing Ducks. Other guys playing on the NBA alumni…

    Miami Heat player LeBron James hoists the championship trophy as team mate Dwyane Wade looks on stage at a rally in Miami, Florida

    Last season: It was not flawless, but it was superb. It was not easy, but it was rewarding. And it was not what they thought it would be, but it was spectacular. The Miami Heat accomplished all of their goals in the 2012 season, that being the only goal they had: win the title. They…

    Oct 3, 2012, 2:39 PM EDT

    Royce White

    Royce White’s anxiety disorder was well known around the time of the draft and it scared a few teams off. White has the potential to be a quality point/forward in the NBA, but he also has a fear of flying as part of the disorder. He’s a big man with real ball handling skills and…
