    Newly signed Houston Rockets player Dwight Howard during news conference in Houston

    Here’s the money quote from the pre-camp Dwight Howard interview done by CSNHouston.com. “The biggest part was leaving a storied franchise and also leaving a lot of money on the table, but in order to win you’ve got to sacrifice something. It would have been great to have that stuff, the money and all that…

    Sep 26, 2013, 4:52 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    Ray Allen‘s shot at the end of regulation to send Game 6 of the Finals into overtime was as clutch as they come, especially considering those now famous yellow ropes in place along the sidelines that were there in preparation for the Spurs’ trophy presentation. NBA Hall-of-Famer Rick Barry has turned it into a mini-controversy…

  3. LeBron says he doesn’t want to go back to cold winters… when he retires

    Sep 26, 2013, 4:20 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Everything LeBron James says this season is going to be parsed like a Presidential speech — every word will be seen as talk of free agency, whether he meant it or not. Take, for example, what LeBron told Men’s Week magazine in a recent interview, when asked about where he might want to retire (literally…

  4. Chris Bosh says focusing on free agency in Toronto ‘messed him up’

    Sep 26, 2013, 3:56 PM EDT

    Quincy Acy, Chris Bosh

    As you may have heard by now, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh all have the ability to opt out of their respective contracts at the end of this season to become unrestricted free agents. While no one knows what the climate will be like for each of these players almost 10 months from…

    Sep 26, 2013, 3:27 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette

    Corey Maggette had a rough season with the Pistons last year.

Maggette has been known throughout his 14-year career for his ability to score and get to the…

  6. GM Presti thinks Thunder can improve on 60-win season

    Sep 26, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    James Harden left before last season starter, yet the Thunder improved — they scored 2.6 points more per 100 possessions and allowed 0.8 less per 100. They were a 60-win team, a better team than the year before, their playoffs just cut short by Russell Westbrook’s injury. This year Kevin Martin is gone and the…

  7. Isaiah Thomas hopes the starting point guard spot in Sacramento is ‘up for competition’

    Sep 26, 2013, 2:49 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Golden State Warriors

    Isaiah Thomas started 62 games at point guard for the Kings last season, but with an average of just 4.6 assists in 26.9 minutes per game, he’s someone who has looked to score first rather than distribute to others. With the Kings making DeMarcus Cousins the face of the franchise, you can bet that they’ll…

    Image (1) usain_bolt-thumb-250x160-18477.jpg for post 3742

    No, there is no way that is real. For as great an athlete as Usain Bolt is, there is no way he gets the ball to travel that far with a casual flick of the wrist (like LeBron shooting from halfcourt). That said, I love this video. It’s fun, and I love him trash talking…

  10. Kobe says he would love Derek Fisher to come back to Lakers

    Sep 26, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    This is why you don’t let current players act as your GM. Derek Fisher is back with the Thunder this season on a one-year minimum contract, and after that he is expected to retire. Fisher was one of the great role players of his era and had a skill set that fit beautifully with Phil…

    Glen Grunwald — the man who has steered the good ship New York Knicks the past several seasons, hired Mike Woodson as coach and said there was “no scenario” Jeremy Lin would not stay a Knick — has been pushed out of power. The Knicks have re-hired Steve Mills as Team President and GM. Mills…

    Sep 26, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    Rajon Rondo decided to do an impromptu Twitter Q&A Wednesday night, which had some interesting questions and answers — not so much basketball stuff, but interesting personal stuff about the normally reserved Rondo. He breaks some NBA molds by not liking video games or skittles. We’re passing along a few highlights. Kevin Garnett, Josh Smith,…

  13. Grizzlies’ owner to play Tony Allen one-on-one for charity

    Sep 26, 2013, 10:46 AM EDT

    Grizzlies' Tony Allen celebrates on the bench during the third quarter in Game 3 of their NBA Western Conference final playoff basketball series against the San Antonio Spurs in Memphis

    Grizzlies owner Robert Pera plays in a regular pick-up run and according to those who have seen him he’s got some game — he has a jumper from the outside and some hops around the rim to the point he used to be able to dunk. That doesn’t mean he’s beating Tony Allen one-on-one. But…

  14. It’s official: That’s Coach Rasheed Wallace to you

    Sep 26, 2013, 10:24 AM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace

    Sep 26, 2013, 9:16 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    Sep 26, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    Last season: Kyrie Irving became the youngest All-Star since LeBron James, but the Cavaliers were decidedly awful throughout the year, finishing 24-58. Only the Bobcats were worse both offensively and defensively, Injuries took a major toll (more on that below), but the season never looked promising at any point, regardless. On the bright side, Dion…

  17. Mitch Kupchak: Kobe won’t play a certain way to lure free agents to Lakers

    Sep 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    kobe mitch

    Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak knows Kobe Bryant professionally as well as anyone at this point, considering that he’s been in the team’s front office for every one of Bryant’s 17-year career in Los Angeles. So while Bryant’s will to win is unparalleled in today’s NBA, Kupchak knows that he won’t change his game for…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    The Heat will be gunning for a third straight title in the upcoming season, and to have a chance at it they’d have to get back to the Finals for the fourth straight season — something last achieved in the NBA by the Boston Celtics from 1984-87. Adding to that is the looming situation that…

    Royce White was selected with the 16th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft by the Houston Rockets, but never played a single game for the team. White suffers from an anxiety disorder, the details of which he has no hesitation making public with very little prodding. It comes with it a fear of flying,…

    Sep 25, 2013, 9:31 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    Kevin McHale spent plenty of time detailing his plans on how he’ll coach the Rockets now that Dwight Howard is in place for the upcoming season. He’s going to try to maintain the team’s identity by pushing the tempo, but expects things to dramatically improve defensively, and is going to experiment quite a bit to…
