  1. Watch Nate Robinson go through preseason workouts

    Sep 18, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game One

    Nate Robinson — who is with the Denver Nuggets this season, in case you lost track of his travels — is like virtually every other NBA player right now: It’s pre-camp workout times. Most players get to their cities a month or more before the season starts and workout with teammates on and off the…

  2. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The New York Knicks

    Sep 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    Last season: If you’ll recall, New York’s offseason leading up to last year was widely regarded as a joke. Jeremy Lin was let go, Raymond Felton was brought in, and then the Knicks seemed to sign all the oldest players available in free agency. But with the benefit of hindsight, the Knicks did about as well…

  3. Report: Gilbert Arenas may receive training camp invite from Clippers

    Gilbert Arenas china

    Gilbert Arenas last played in the NBA for the Memphis Grizzlies during the 2011-12 season. But he may be getting a chance to return to the league next year, and do so as a member of a team expected to be in the mix to battle deep into the postseason. From Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld:…

  4. Report: Andrew Bynum ‘nowhere near ready,’ likely to miss preseason

    Sep 18, 2013, 12:16 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    The Cavaliers took a chance on Andrew Bynum, but it was a small one considering that the team signed him to a contract that is only guaranteed for $6 million, and doesn’t become fully guaranteed until after January 10. There would seem to be an incentive for Bynum to get back on the court for…

  5. Kickstarter campaign raising funds to finish Steve Nash documentary

    Sep 17, 2013, 11:09 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash has had an NBA career that will eventually land him in the Hall of Fame. He’s earned two league MVPs, led the league in assists five times, and will very possibly end up as the all-time leader in free throw percentage before his career is all said and done. But there’s always been…

  6. Lakers make Marcus Landry signing official

    Sep 17, 2013, 10:02 PM EDT

    marcus landry lakers

    We’ve known about Marcus Landry getting a training camp invite from the Lakers for quite some time, but the team made things official with an announcement on Monday. Landry earned his spot with a stellar performance for the Lakers at the Las Vegas Summer League, where he averaged 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26.5 minutes…

  7. New team, new tattoo — Jason Terry getting Nets tattoo

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:59 PM EDT

    JasonTerry

    Back in the summer of 2010, then Maverick Jason Terry got the Larry O’Brien trophy tattooed on his arm… and we all laughed. Dallas was a good team but a whole lot of things needed to break their way to win the title. Pretty much everything broke their way and a Dallas team that melded…

  8. Sean Marks to become assistant coach for Spurs

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

    sean marks spurs

    The Spurs have been the model of consistency in the NBA when it comes to the personnel in place running things in both the front office and on the sidelines. R.C Buford has been the team’s GM since 2002, and Gregg Popovich has been the head coach since 1996. His assistant coaches were in place…

  9. TNT’s Steve Kerr predicts Bulls will knock off Heat this year

    Sep 17, 2013, 7:03 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The last team to make the NBA Finals four straight years was Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics from 1984-87 — so many things need to go right for you to make the Finals (health being the key) that it’s hard to have it all break for you year after year after year. So expect a lot…

  10. Kings to televise season opener without commercials

    Sep 17, 2013, 5:58 PM EDT

    Kings Sale Basketball

    On Oct. 30 when you tune in — or at least the people in Sacramento tune in — to watch the Kings season opener as they host the Denver Nuggets, there will be no commercials during the broadcast. You read that right, no commercials. Zero. The time that would normally be filled with a Blake…

  11. Chandler Parsons talks recruiting Dwight, Rockets, Jeremy Lin with NBC Sports

    Sep 17, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Premiere Of Relativity Media's "Paranoia" - Red Carpet

    Chandler Parsons was front and center in the recruiting of Dwight Howard to Houston, they share an agent and Parsons sold Howard on this being fun, collegal and they could win a lot of games (Howard needs to have fun and win). Whatever he did, it worked. Parsons swung by the NBC Sports Studios to…

  12. What if Dennis Rodman isn’t all that wrong?

    Sep 17, 2013, 4:03 PM EDT

    US-NKOREA-DIPLOMACY-BASKET-RODMAN

    This Dennis Rodman saga just keeps getting more and more unbelievable. Unless you live under a rock and/or are otherwise disconnected from modern technology, you’ve heard at least something about the former Bulls forward’s North Korean activities backed by Irish oddsmakers Paddy Power, PLC. Not only has the guy visited North Korea twice, referring to dictator…

  13. How many “real” point guards are there in the NBA? Gary Payton says three.

    Sep 17, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    The NBA game is different then when Gary Payton was a lock down defender on his way to a Hall of Fame career — in 2000 the NBA took away hand checking and any contact on the perimeter, a year later zone defenses were permitted again in the NBA. Payton told us at PBT earlier…

  14. Derrick Rose says he would like to play for Team USA at World Championships

    Sep 17, 2013, 2:27 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Kevin Durant and Kevin Love flew to Las Vegas this summer to tell coach Mike Krzyzewski personally that they were in for next summer, when Team USA will compete in the World Championships in Spain. Now you can add Derrick Rose to the mix. He is coming off an entire missed season after an ACL…

  15. Report: Celtics to waive Donte Greene, he’s headed to China

    Sep 17, 2013, 1:46 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Donte Greene was traded to the Celtics in August in the Fab Melo trade and Greene was always a long shot to make the team — Boston went and got him to save money because his deal was not guaranteed. They were going to cut him free at some point. So Green was looking at…

  16. Chris Mannix tells story of being a ball boy asked to buy beer for Allen Iverson

    Sep 17, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson Sixers

    Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated (also host of a weekly show on NBC Sports Radio, plus he’s a regular guest on the NBC Sports Network ) grew up in the Boston area, went to Boston College, and for a decade was a ball boy at the Boston Garden. With that comes a lot of good…

  17. Stern on Sixers: I hope they make the playoffs (and miss out on lottery)

    Sep 17, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    Philadelphia is one of several that are going bad to get good. Call it the Oklahoma City method, call it tanking, call it “winless for Wiggins,” call it whatever you like — the fact is this is one of the deepest drafts in a decade next summer and teams will be finding ways to lose…

  18. Jrue Holiday says his goal is to be more efficient this season

    Sep 17, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    Jrue Holiday had a good season last year — he was an All-Star who averaged 17.7 points and 8 assists a game. He took on a lot more of the Philadelphia offense and produced some good numbers. But not efficient ones — he shot 43.1 percent overall, a respectable 36 percent from three but he…

  19. Mark Aguirre earned assist when Mark Cuban purchased Mavericks

    Sep 17, 2013, 11:56 AM EDT

    Mark Aguirre Mavericks

    Mark Cuban bought the majority of the Mavericks back in 2000 for $285 million (current Forbes estimated value, $685 million) then proceeded to change the culture of what had been one of the worst run franchises in the league. In 2011 Dallas got its NBA title and has become a destination free agents seriously consider.…

  20. Derrick Rose says he’s been working on shooting range

    Sep 17, 2013, 11:23 AM EDT

    NBA Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose acknowledges fans as he attends a promotional event as part of his Asia tour in Hong Kong

    When Derrick Rose was out with his torn ACL, Tim Hardaway — who went through the same injury as a player — said Rose needed to use the time to become a better jump shooter. Hardaway should know, he had some of his best years after he returned. Rose will be back at the start of…
