  1. Steve Nash doesn’t really buy your “Championship or bust” attitude

    Aug 1, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    There is no more ridiculous or annoying argument in sports than “count the ringzzzzz.” Yes Kobe Bryant fans, I’m looking at you. Basketball remains a team sport — Bill Russell was a great player but he has 11 rings because he was on a great team. We’ve mythologized Michael Jordan into a superhuman player (and…

  2. Antawn Jamison drawing interest from Bulls, Clippers, Grizzlies and Bobcats

    Aug 1, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    Antawn Jamison joined the Lakers last season on a one-year deal in pursuit of a title. We all saw how that turned out, and Jamison, like everyone else on the roster, dealt with an injury that affected his ability to contribute. The wrist injury that limited Jamison last year wasn’t as much of a concern…

  3. Andrei Kirilenko scoffs at Russian conspiracy theory

    Aug 1, 2013, 1:11 PM EDT

    Andrei Kirilenko

    You have heard the conspiracy theory by now: Andrei Kirilenko opted out of the $10.2 million final year of his contract with Minnesota to sign with the Brooklyn Nets for the taxpayers midlevel exception of $3.1 million (he signed a two year deal).

    Aug 1, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    Duke v Louisville

    Seth Curry, the Duke shooting guard, would play anywhere in the NBA at this point. He went undrafted in June, in part due to an injury to his shin that required surgery and kept him out of draft workouts and Summer League. Now he’s looking at some training camp invites and trying to see if…

  5. Today’s most expected move: Bucks GM heaps praise on Brandon Knight

    Aug 1, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    Brandon Knight, Tyson Chandler, Jason Kidd

    The Bucks made their intentions clear when they went after Jeff Teague (with an offer the Hawks matched) — they were moving on from Brandon Jennings. The problem was finding a trading partner willing to take him on in a sign-and-trade deal, Jennings stock wasn’t high. Enter Joe Dumars, who has made any signing that…

    Newly acquired Net's Pierce, Garnett and Terry hold up their new jerseys as they pose for a photo with principal owner Prokhorov after a news conference in Brooklyn

    The largely free market loving, Republican owners of the NBA teams pushed hard in the last Collective Bargaining Agreement for something that you would think goes against their nature — an increased and very stiff tax structure that sets up a more socialist system. (They would argue the system is needed for the growth of…

    Aug 1, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kwame Brown

    It’s not expected that Kwame Brown will be back with the Sixers next season. Brown picked up his $3 million option to come back to the Sixers this season, because he’s not getting that money anywhere else. Still, it’s been expected that the team would buy out that deal and send him on his merry…

    lebron suit

    We’re going to start this off the way the original story from Jason Whitlock at Fox Sports.com should have, and that’s by stating the obvious: It’s extremely unlikely LeBron James would seek the presidency of the players union now, or at any time while still in the prime of his NBA career. In fact, here’s…

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Nearly a month ago Devin Harris had a three-year, $9 million deal set to return to the Dallas Mavericks, the team that traded him away in 2008 (for some guy named Jason Kidd). All Harris had to do was pass the team physical… And he didn’t. The physical found a dislocated toe that was going…

    Jul 31, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    If I were Luol Deng, I would have been pissed off. Deng had gotten sick, had to have a spinal tap to test for meningitis, and the tap went bad causing a serious, life-threatening illness that he could not play through. The Bulls listed him as sick with the flu (which Joakim Noah was playing…

  17. Report: Knicks trying hard to sign Beno Udrih

    Jul 31, 2013, 3:26 PM EDT

    =vn19

    Beno Udrih was traded from the Milwaukee Bucks to the Orlando Magic last season, enjoying a mild career resurgence when he was handed the reigns late in the season while  getting some spot starts in the absence of starting point guard Jameer Nelson.

    Jul 31, 2013, 2:49 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    If you remember the Doc Rivers talks with the Clippers, they went on for a bit, stalled out, then started up again out of the blue and a deal got done. Some deals are like that, both sides need to walk away for a bit and take a deep breath, think about it then come…

    Kurt Rambis may have been surprised Mike D’Antoni asked him to be an assistant coach (and it will make for an interesting dynamic around the team if the Lakers struggle) but he jumped at the chance. He’s excited about trying to coach a Lakers defense that lost Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace, plus has…
