  1. Eric Gordon says he plans to make Anthony Davis’ life easier

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Anthony Davis has had it pretty good — first an NCAA title at Kentucky where he was a fantastic player, then being the No. 1 overall pick of the Hornets, then getting to win a gold with Team USA in London where Kobe Bryant and LeBron James kind of took him under their wings. Now,…

  2. Metta World Peace boasts Lakers want to get 73 wins

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:15 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    For the Lakers fifth offensive option (if that), Metta World Peace isn’t afraid to do the talking. We told you how he said he didn’t think anybody could get past the Lakers. We’ve shown you his latest boast-filled video. We showed you him on Yo Gabba Gabba. He’s kind of everywhere right now. Then there…

  3. Video: Metta World Peace’s new video/movie is… very him

    Sep 17, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Ron Artest Parade

    First a word of warning: While this video is technically safe for work, if you are easily offended by things of a sexual nature you should not push play. Which is another way of saying you should not show this video to your grandmother. But if you are showing Metta World Peace music videos to…

  4. Two weeks to training camp… KG is still crazy after all these years

    Sep 17, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    The wait is almost over. We’re two weeks from training camp, and the start of the 2012-2013 NBA season. Basketball is almost back. As we get closer we’ll be bringing you reminders of why this game is awesome, what you’ve missed, and what to look forward to. Look, I don’t know how else to put it.…

  5. J.R. Smith thinks McGrady could help Knicks. That’s’ great.

    Sep 17, 2012, 1:43 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    You know who some of the worst judges of talent and team building skills are? No, stop it with the Bobcats jokes. It’s other players. They often see players for what they were not are, or have inflated (or undersized) understanding of a player based on what they have seen in person in a game…

  6. Shockingly, Dwyane Wade likes all the Heat’s new shooters

    Sep 17, 2012, 1:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    Dwyane Wade won a 2006 NBA title driving, getting fouled, and dishing out to hot shooters on the perimeter. Oh, and there was that Shaq guy and some interesting officiating, but Wade’s relentless attacking and smart playmaking were what got the Heat their first title. The 2012-13 Heat are not going back to that —…

  7. Video: Anthony Davis drops 40 at Kentucky alumni game

    Sep 17, 2012, 12:36 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    Well, Drake was impressed. And really, if he’s impressed aren’t we all impressed? Anthony Davis took his shiny new gold medal and his game back to the annual Kentucky alumni game, and we have the video courtesy City League Hoops and SLAM. Yes, they played about as much defense as one expects in summer game…

  8. NBA Season Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

    Sep 17, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Today begins PBT’s team-by-team season preview, going through all 30 squads. We are starting in the deep Atlantic Division that could well send four teams to the playoffs, and we will move West from there. First up, your Philadelphia 76ers. Last season: They were a slightly better than .500 team (35-31) that played great defense…

  9. Doc Rivers wants Celtics focused on Heat, not Lakers

    Sep 17, 2012, 11:25 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks - Game One

    Lakers vs. Celtics. It’s the NBA’s legendary rivalry. Bill Russell vs. Wilt Chamberlain. Magic vs. Bird. Kevin Garnett vs. Kobe Bryant. It is the balloons in the rafters of the Forum. It is the baby skyhook. It is not what Doc Rivers wants his Celtics focused on. With the Lakers pickups of Dwight Howard and…

  10. Two weeks to training camp… Manu Ginobili the modern superhero

    Sep 17, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    The wait is almost over. We’re two weeks from training camp, and the start of the 2012-2013 NBA season. Basketball is almost back. As we get closer we’ll be bringing you reminders of why this game is awesome, what you’ve missed, and what to look forward to. He shouldn’t be able to do it, honestly. Manu…

  11. Kendrick Perkins not worried about Lakers, his starting spot, any of your petty concerns

    Sep 17, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins

    Kendrick Perkins is still recovering from the wrist injury that hampered him during the playoffs last year. Which means during the preseason we are going to see a lot of Cole Aldrich, Hasheem Thabeet and anyone else vying to be his backup at the five (Daniel Orton, for one). Early this past summer there had…

  12. Where in the world will Josh Howard play next?

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    Jazz forward Howard tries to get position on Spurs forward Leonard during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    Matt Barnes got inked but we still have a long list of veteran players out there waiting to sign a deal — Kenyon Martin, Mickael Pietrus, Louis Amundson, Leandro Barbosa, Anthony Tolliver, Darko Milicic. Josh Howard can be added to that list, also. Once a 19.9 points per game scorer for the Mavericks, last season…

  13. The Inbounds: Why players and their agents should consider a franchise’s spending history in free agency decisions

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler react to a call in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston

    Two and a half weeks ago, Business Week released a study on the “smartest spenders in the NBA.” Kurt talked about the top and bottom ten here. It’s nothing shocking. The Lakers spend really well! The Wizards and Kings spend really badly! Turns out there’s a high correlation between “being a really good team” and…

  14. Miami Heat do not seem high on Dexter Pitman. At all.

    Sep 17, 2012, 7:53 AM EDT

    Dexter Pittman

    The Miami Heat are still looking for one more big man on the roster. Chris Bosh is the starting center (probably) but the Heat want some depth up front. Josh Harrellson got an extended lookout, as did Hassan Whiteside, but the Heat are still looking. Dexter Pittman has had his shot. He was with the…

  15. New city, same old Jeremy Lin sleeping on couches

    Sep 17, 2012, 2:37 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    Remember back when “Linsanity” swept New York like nothing since Sex and the City? Part of the story was how Jeremy Lin wasn’t even sure he would stick with the team and slept for a while on Landry Field’s couch. It became a joke on twitter with Fields sending out pictures of the couch. Now,…

  16. Doc Rivers says the plan is for Courtney Lee to start until Bradley’s return

    Sep 16, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Courtney Lee, Paul George

    With Avery Bradley out for a while to start next season, there is a bit of a question about whether Jason Terry would move from his traditional bench spot to a starting position. Problem is that would jack with plans to have Terry back up Rondo at point guard. But what about Courtney Lee? In…

  17. Looks like MKG is ‘just fine’

    Sep 16, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Kentucky Wildcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist looks up after being fouled during the first half against the Kansas Jayhawks in the men's NCAA Final Four championship college basketball game in New Orleans

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was brilliant in Summer League. For a whole game. Then he was out with a knee. It was a really disappointing start to the forward’s time with Charlotte, as MKG is largely thought of as the start of their rebuilding plan. Then he disappeared. Not a word was said about Kidd-Gilchrist over the…

  18. Dwight Howard admits he learned lessons of LeBron decision too late

    Sep 16, 2012, 5:01 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    There were lessons to be learned out of how LeBron James handled leaving Cleveland for the Miami Heat. A long list of what not to do. One was the pitfalls of hubris and that not everything can be spun positively. Another was that people are going to hate you for that kind of move, and…

  19. Louisville is totally serious about getting an NBA team

    Sep 16, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    louisville_skyline_sunset_1

    Louisville’s basketball crazy, and they want more of it. The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that a group of business owners met with the mayor and other government officials recently to talk about the possibility of the city bringing in an NBA team. And they sound pretty psyched about the idea. From the Courier-Journal: A group of community…

  20. Tony Allen ‘guarantees’ he’ll be back for season opener, but what about next year?

    Sep 16, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    tony allen

    Memphis defensive pitbull guard-forward Tony Allen had minor surgery over the summer to repair cartilage in his knee. His recovery is going to run right up against the start of training camp, but Allen made it clear that he’ll be good to go for the season opener on Halloween vs. the Clippers. “I’m definitely getting myself back…
