  1. Rubio says he hopes for December return, but will not rush it

    Sep 27, 2012, 5:06 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    This is pretty much the timeline we have expected from Ricky Rubio — he is shooting to return sometime around Christmas from a torn ACL — but what is good to hear is he is looking at the long term. Rubio’s return for two-thirds (give or take) of the NBA season is key to the…

  2. Who is NBA’s biggest trash talker? Curry says Nate Robinson, CP3

    Sep 27, 2012, 4:07 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    For some of us, the first name that comes to mind is Kobe Bryant, he constantly chirps. He said he started the trash talk on Team USA. Other people – particularly smaller guards — might think of Kevin Garnett. There are a lot of guys who talk smack during an NBA game, but when The…

  3. Video: Dwight Howard teaches Ellen how to Dougie

    Sep 27, 2012, 2:20 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Glen Davis

    She should have asked John Wall. Dancing is a big part of the Ellen show. Newly minted Laker Dwight Howard was on the show towering over the other guests and was teaching Ellen how to Dougie, so she could be hip in 2010. Well, at least they weren’t going Gangnam style, it could have been…

  4. Neither Ray Allen, Dwyane Wade at 100 percent. Yet.

    Sep 27, 2012, 1:53 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat

    It is the caveat with every team’s lofty goals entering the NBA season — “if they are healthy…” The Miami Heat’s goals are as lofty as they get, but the team does not enter training camp healthy. Both Dwyane Wade (knee) and Ray Allen (ankle) are not all the way back from off-season surgery, coach…

  5. Differing views of Jeff Green’s big contract in Boston

    Sep 27, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    Jeff Green signed to a four year, $36 million deal with the Celtics last summer. The fourth year is a player option and it contains a number of incentive clauses that could take it up to a $40 million deal. That for a guy that Oklahoma City wanted to move and who missed last season…

  6. Video: Josh Smith got a shoe commercial focused on Atlanta

    Sep 27, 2012, 12:56 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Does Josh Smith have the weight of Atlanta’s expectations on his shoulders? I think Matt Ryan does, not so sure about Josh Smith. But heading into the final year of his contract he does have the weight of the Hawks on his shoulders… well his shoulders and Al Horford‘s shoulders and Jeff Teague‘s shoulders. But…

  7. Lakers’ Hill strikes plea on charges he choked girlfriend

    Sep 27, 2012, 12:45 PM EDT

    Jordan Hill

    Back in March, Lakers reserve big man Jordan Hill was charged with assault after a fight with his girlfriend back in Houston where he allegedly bruised her legs and choked her. This week he reached a plea deal in the case that will mean just a fine if he doesn’t repeat the incident, reports TMZ.…

  8. Tyson Chandler wants Rasheed Wallace as part of Knicks

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:39 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Tyson Chandler acknowledges the Dallas Mavericks fans after being presented with his championship ring before their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    When it was reported that the Knicks were taking a hard look at Rasheed Wallace, a lot of Knicks fans rolled their eyes. Knicks haters just laughed. But Tyson Chandler — the guy Wallace would back up — wants Sheed in New York. Look at what he told the New York Post. “He looked good,’’…

  9. No playoff promises from Warriors’ Jackson this year

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    Last year Mark Jackson was coming to the head coach’s chair straight out of a broadcast booth where he was supposed to be opinionated and brash. He was in front of a new team ownership group that was brimming with confidence. Jackson played right into all of it and was talking playoffs for the Warriors.…

  10. Can the Raptors make the playoffs? Kyle Lowry says yes.

    Sep 27, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    Pity the Toronto Raptors — they are in a division with the Celtics, Knicks, Nets and Sixers. Four lock playoff teams. Throw in the Heat, Pacers and other teams from other playoff divisions and there is no easy path from Toronto to the post season this year. But Kyle Lowry thinks they can make it.…

  11. Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen had a dance-off

    Sep 27, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    So you think you can dance? Apparently the two best players of the Bulls dynasty period in the 1990s do. Monday night there was a surprise 47th birthday party for Scottie Pippen in Chicago and Michael Jordan was there, according to the New York Post. There were also plenty of people you’d expect — “World…

  12. No pressure Vinny Del Negro, but it’s the last year of your contract

    Sep 27, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    All season long the talk around the Los Angeles Clippers will be about contracts — Chris Paul will be a free agent next summer. It’s the smart move financially for him to become a free agent and re-sign with the Clippers, but that free agency gives him leverage. Enough leverage that pretty much every player…

  13. Jordan Crawford could start over Bradley Beal for Wizards

    Sep 27, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal, Ernie Grunfeld, Randy Wittman

    Bradley Beal looked like a guy who had potential at Summer League, but a guy who needs some work (he shot 30 percent from three, for example). Last season, Jordan Crawford looked like an NBA player who started 32 games last year and scored 14.7 points a game the season before. Beal may be the…

  14. Knicks like Josh Howard, just depends on ‘Sheed and 76ers

    Sep 27, 2012, 1:55 AM EDT

    Josh Howard Jazz

    Josh Howard got a training camp invitation from the 76ers and will be in the City of Brotherly Love next week. But it’s a non-guaranteed contract and he well may be cut on a team with Evan Turner, Thaddeus Young and Jason Richardson who can play Howard’s wing forward spot (although Young plays more at…

  15. Bulls to add depth at center, sign Kyrylo Fesenko

    Sep 26, 2012, 11:26 PM EDT

    FESENKO_KYRYLO

    He’s no Omer Asik, but he will have to do. The Bulls reportedly are about to add depth at center with the signing veteran Kyrylo Fesenko to a one-year, none guaranteed deal, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. The decision to sign him came after working him out on Monday. While this is a non-guaranteed deal…

  16. Video: Best NBA high top fades of the 1980s

    Sep 26, 2012, 8:29 PM EDT

    kenny walker

    It’s the middle of the week and we could all use a little break and a little laugh. Ideally a laugh at someone else’s expense. And few things are funnier than the hair styles of the 198os. NBA.com has been running its show “NB80’s” lately, which is a direct rip off of VHI’s “I Love…

  17. 76ers’ Wright says Bynum is better than Dwight Howard

    Sep 26, 2012, 7:14 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    We are still in the honeymoon period with Andrew Bynum in Philadelphia. Fans love him. Teammates love him. Coaches are excited about ways they can use him in the offense. That honeymoon will end, it always does. Ask every Philadelphia sports hero. It will be interesting to see how Bynum handles it when things turn,…

  18. Report: Grizzlies Darrell Arthur fractures leg. Ugh.

    Sep 26, 2012, 6:17 PM EDT

    ARTHUR_DARRELL

    UPDATE 6:17 pm: Good news, as fractures go this isn’t too bad. It is a non-displaced fracture that is going to keep him out of action for a few weeks, reports Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld. With training camp opening in a week he will not be ready to go yet, but for the start of…

  19. The Inbounds: Ellis and Jennings and the cliff of compromise

    Sep 26, 2012, 5:57 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Something’s gotta give in Milwaukee. (Check out our Bucks season preview here.) The Bucks traded their often-injured-but-still-awesome-when-he-played center Andrew Bogut last season to Golden State and took on Monta Ellis. Ellis was a promising young star. Then he was the guy who got injured in the moped accident. Then he was a terrific player again.…

  20. Rondo says his feud with Ray Allen is overblown

    Sep 26, 2012, 5:25 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The Rajon Rondo/Ray Allen story is not going away anytime soon — not with the Celtics and Heat opening the season against each other in just over a month. Not with the Heat getting their rings in front of the Celtics then taking the court with Allen now in red and white. If anything, Mr.…
