  1. Stan Van Gundy continues to drop bombs on Magic front office

    Aug 20, 2012, 2:53 PM EDT

    Orlando's Stan Van Gundy shouts during an NBA playoff basketball game in Indianapolis

    Burn the bridge? Ha, this is more like how The Bridge over the River Kwai ended up. Which is going to be an interesting discussion in Van Gundy’s next job interview. Stan Van Gundy has been doing media interviews lately and has started just carpet-bombing is former employers, the Orlando Magic. He was fired from…

  2. Kevin Durant is going to spend this week talking acting

    Aug 20, 2012, 1:52 PM EDT

    kevin-durant-thunderstruck-movie-405x350

    It’s “Thunderstruck” week!! This coming weekend Kevin Durant’s movie “Thunderstruck” hits the theaters nationwide. So rather than spending this week recovering from his gold medal trip to London and getting in a little run with teammates, he is going to be walking the red carpet and doing the movie promotion thing. The movie’s premise isn’t…

  3. Quote of the day: LeBron James says biggest change was him

    Aug 20, 2012, 1:27 PM EDT

    LeBron James participates in the U.S. Olympic basketball team practice in Las Vegas

    “It’s been a… huge turnaround. I think the biggest turnaround for me, personally, who I was and who I became in this last year, it’s a big turnaround. That’s what helped me get to those accomplishments. And I just didn’t take anything for granted.” — LeBron James, talking to ESPN about his incredible year that…

  4. Prokhorov refers to James Dolan as “the little man”

    Aug 20, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    If nothing else this season, I’m going to enjoy watching the Knicks and Nets go back and forth at each other like four-year-old girls fighting over a Barbie doll. The battles will be both on the court — the Knicks are the Nets first home game in the Barclays Center — and in the media.…

  5. Warriors have decision to make about Curry contract

    Aug 20, 2012, 12:20 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Stephen Curry is going to get a healthy contract after his rookie deal ends. Because, when you shoot the rock — and there is no doubt he can shoot, he hit 45.5 percent from three last year — you play in the NBA. But ankle injuries have limited him the last two seasons, he’s had…

  6. NBA teams with Ticketmaster to create NBA ticket (and resale) “supersite”

    Aug 20, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    NBA tickets (2008 finals)

    If the NBA teaming with ticketing behemoth Ticketmaster — the company that charges you a fee to print your ticket out yourself at home — makes you a little uncomfortable, well, it probably should. But this isn’t about you — unless you’re a team season ticket holder who sells off some of your tickets every…

  7. Brandon Jennings wants a contract extension before season

    Aug 20, 2012, 10:46 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    Brandon Jennings rookie deal is almost up, the Bucks can either come to extension terms with him or give him a qualifying offer and let the market determine his worth (then they can match if they want). Jennings has said in the past he was doing “his research” on big market teams, but really what…

  8. Thunder GM says they are going to work to keep Harden

    Aug 20, 2012, 10:20 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder James Harden durin

    When the Oklahoma City Thunder inked Serge Ibaka to a new four-year, $48 million deal fans of 29 other teams licked their lips and thought “now they can’t keep James Harden, too, can they? Maybe we can get him.” Chill out. The Thunder plan to keep Harden, too. Just ask Thunder general manager Sam Presti,…

  9. The Inbounds: The commonly sensible signing of Serge Ibaka

    Aug 20, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    I’m not known as the biggest Serge Ibaka guy. I have an analytic relationship with the Oklahoma City Thunder that too closely mirrors that of an indie rock fan in its obnoxiousness. In short, I saw the jump coming in the early months of 2010 when they started the leap to contention and was huge on them,…

  10. Video: James Harden’s inflatable raft is bigger than yours

    Aug 20, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    U.S. Olympic basketball player Harden watches during a training session ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester

    This is not as good as the “mustard on the beard” ad by Foot Locker, but their latest one isn’t bad either. And it’s filled with NBA players — Chris Bosh, Kevin Love, James Harden and Russell Westbrook. And it’s the dead of the offseason. So…. enjoy. Man, I can’t wait for actual games.

  11. LeBron James says he wants to play in 2016 Rio Olympics

    Aug 20, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    Right after capturing gold in London, LeBron James suggested this could be it for him and the Olympics. He didn’t know if he would keep going. But after thinking about it for a week, he sounds like he’s in. LeBron was back in Akron doing charity events last weekend and spoke with the Associated Press:…

  12. Bogut says he may miss preseason games, will be ready for season

    Aug 20, 2012, 2:35 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    What is the single most important key to the Golden State Warriors making the playoffs is a healthy Andrew Bogut. They need him in the middle. And not just him, but the him of three years ago before his elbow injury and surgery, the Bogut that was one of the better young centers in the…

  13. Video: Kobe Bryant scores 68 points in 15 minutes in Chinese celebrity game

    Aug 19, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    OK, if you were hoping for any sort of defense to be played at all in this and that it is some sort of validation of Kobe Bryant, I would recommend not watching the video, then saying you watched the video, then lying about what the actual video shows to all your friends at the…

  14. Andray Blatche says all the right things while waiting for the call

    Aug 19, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche, JaVale McGee

    Andray Blatche personified a lot of the problems for the post-Arenas era in Washington that the Wizards have tried so hard to shake. A hot shooting stretch after Arenas was suspended and Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison were traded in a blow-up lead to a huge contract. Knuckleheaded behavior and poor shot selection soon followed,…

  15. Should homecourt be a priority for the Heat next season?

    Aug 19, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    Typically, after you win the NBA title, you reach a new level of confidence. You know you can get there, you know you can win it. You have an extra gear and an awareness of that gear most teams don’t have. So homecourt advantage may not mean as much. The Heat won the title last…

  16. Anthony Tolliver is reportedly drawing interest from Greece’s Panathinaikos

    Aug 19, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Anthony Randolph, Luke Ridnour, Derrick Rose

    Anthony Tolliver, despite a very strong season with the Timberwolves, continues to hang out on the free agency limb. There’s been a lot of talk but little action in terms of a contract getting taken care of. And reportedly, now NBA teams will have some competition. Prasinanea.gr reports that Greek powerhouse Panathinaikos is interested in…

  17. Michael Beasley is having an estate sale you have to see

    Aug 19, 2012, 12:59 PM EDT

    639894280

    Michael Beasley is on the move again. Minnesota decided not to bring him back — you can guess why for yourself — and he is getting a fresh start in Phoenix with a three-year, $18 million deal. And by fresh start, we mean completely starting over. Rather than packing a U-Haul with his possessions for…

  18. Possessions and You: The Atlanta Hawks

    Aug 19, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Hawks forward Smith reacts after a shot in the first half during their game against the Celtics in Game One of their NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs basketball game in Atlanta

    From time to time, we’ll take a look at what teams looked like on offense last year using some basic but nifty charts. Today the Atlanta Hawks.   I’ve done these before with overlays of production, but it’s difficult to get a real indication relative to usage. Points per minute? Still impacted by too many…

  19. Hornets agree to four-year extension with Monty Williams

    Aug 19, 2012, 8:51 AM EDT

    Monty Williams

    Surviving last year with the Hornets is a pretty impressive feat for Monty Williams. Losing Chris Paul and David West, dealing with the veto debacle, having Eric Gordon perpetually injured, being drastically low on talent, the deck was stacked against Williams. But instead of the team falling apart, even though they wound up with an…

  20. Video: A reminder, the Wolves were fun, are fun, will be fun

    Aug 18, 2012, 9:01 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The Timberwolves shook off all the doldrums and depressing mediocrity last year. Behind Kevin Love taking yet another leap forward and Ricky Rubio living up to the loftiest of expectations, along with Rick Adelman actually getting everyone on the same page, the Wolves were running and gunning every night. They were winning games until Rubio’s…
