  1. Miami Heat bomb away from three in preseason scrimmage

    Oct 4, 2012, 2:08 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Ray Allen, James Jones

    Judging what an NBA team will look like based on an in-house scrimmage is a lot like trying to tell if a movie is going to be any good from the trailer. It’s an exercise in missed judgment. I mean, “Taken” looked good in a trailer. (Good enough that they made a sequel, I guess.)…

  2. Report: Tracy McGrady considering playing in China

    Oct 4, 2012, 1:15 AM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    Reality is sinking in for Tracy McGrady — training camps are open and underway, teams basically have their rosters set, Rasheed Wallace hasn’t played in the NBA in two seasons but he’s got a contract, yet McGrady can’t find a team to give him a shot. Well, not on this continent anyway. And without other…

  3. Grizzlies VP Dana Davis found dead in his apartment

    Oct 3, 2012, 10:00 PM EDT

    dana davis

    Sad news out of Memphis. Dana Davis, the Grizzlies vice president of basketball operations, was discovered dead in his apartment, reports the Memphis Commercial Appeal. He was 56 and no foul play is suspected. He had not been seen since Tuesday afternoon and both Grizzlies employees and the Memphis police entered his apartment to find…

  4. Video: Celtic Jason Terry trying to pick up Boston accent

    Oct 3, 2012, 8:29 PM EDT

    Jason Terry

    That’s funny stuff. Jason Terry is taking to Boston and its fans in a way we haven’t seen since… well Shaq, but not a lot of people before them. He seems to really love being a Celtic and being in Bean Town. We’ll see how all that plays out on the court.

  5. NBA Players union to file grievance over new flopping rules

    Oct 3, 2012, 7:34 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Paul Pierce, flop

    When asked, players generally have been supportive of the new NBA anti-flopping rules and fines that were announced by the league office on Wednesday. Because they all think they have been victimized by floppers (but would never do it themselves). The players’ union, not so happy. The union has filed a grievance with the league…

  6. Joakim Noah says ankle may be issue for rest of his career

    Oct 3, 2012, 5:52 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah gestures during media day for their upcoming NBA basketball season in Deerfield

    Joakim Noah is practicing full out and says his ankle is 100 percent healthy. Finally. He’s good to go. But ankles have a way of being something chronic for basketball players, and Noah seems to realize that could be the case for him. He was talking preventative medicine — you know, the thing your doctor…

  7. The Inbounds: Chris Bosh and being what you’re not your way

    Oct 3, 2012, 4:45 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    Chris Bosh has accepted that he has to play center for the Miami Heat. He doesn’t want to, it’s not what he has preferred, not from the moment he signed up for the Triad in South Beach. He likes his finesse game, feels that he’s better as a four, likes the freedom of power forward,…

  8. Iverson playing exhibition in China against Marbury’s team

    Oct 3, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    iverson-turkey

    Heck, I’d pay to see this. Maybe more than the Heat/Clippers exhibition games that tip off in China in just more than a week. Allen Iverson and Jason Williams are going to play in an exhibition game in Beijing against Stephon Marbury and his team, the Beijing Ducks. Other guys playing on the NBA alumni…

  9. NBA Season Preview: Miami Heat

    Oct 3, 2012, 3:25 PM EDT

    Miami Heat player LeBron James hoists the championship trophy as team mate Dwyane Wade looks on stage at a rally in Miami, Florida

    Last season: It was not flawless, but it was superb. It was not easy, but it was rewarding. And it was not what they thought it would be, but it was spectacular. The Miami Heat accomplished all of their goals in the 2012 season, that being the only goal they had: win the title. They…

  10. Royce White not in Rockets camp, deals with anxiety disorder

    Oct 3, 2012, 2:39 PM EDT

    Royce White

    Royce White’s anxiety disorder was well known around the time of the draft and it scared a few teams off. White has the potential to be a quality point/forward in the NBA, but he also has a fear of flying as part of the disorder. He’s a big man with real ball handling skills and…

  11. Winderman: After lockout, preseason games look pretty good

    Oct 3, 2012, 2:13 PM EDT

    Celtics Europe Basketball

    How much do we miss the game? This much: We’re actually looking forward to the start of the preseason. Yes, in this space a week ago we said the process is too long, that it shortchanges players who spend the month working without pay (with the NBA calling to remind that 50 percent of revenue…

  12. Rasheed Wallace finally signs contract, now in Knicks camp

    Oct 3, 2012, 1:54 PM EDT

    rasheed_wallace

    It’s now official — Rasheed Wallace is a New York Knick. After missing one day of training camp while his agent and the Knicks argued over whatever (the money was set as a veteran minimum deal of $1.7 million) the two sides worked it out the team announced, and Wallace was at practice for the…

  13. League announces fines of up to $30K for flopping. As if that will work.

    Oct 3, 2012, 1:36 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Tony Parker, flop

    The league hates flopping. They say it’s the integrity of the game, I think it’s more an image thing — David Stern read columnists last playoffs comparing the NBA to soccer, he saw his young up-and-coming Clippers called “flop city.” He knew something needed to be done. Players say they hate it, too, but plenty…

  14. Video: Dwight Howard shooting threes… does he think he’s Bynum?

    Oct 3, 2012, 1:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard poses for a photo during NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

    Just a fun little video of Dwight Howard in a three-point shooting contest with Laker reserve (if he can make the roster again) Andrew Goudelock. Lakers fans having a flashback to Andrew Bynum… well, Howard took two more more threes than Bynum in games last season and missed all of them. He is 0-21 the…

  15. Darko Milicic, professional carp fisherman. Not making that up.

    Oct 3, 2012, 11:55 AM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    You think you know Darko Milicic. You don’t know Darko Milicic. He is more than a Celtics backup center, a draft bust at No. 2 but a guy who carved out a nine-year NBA career as a decent backup big. He’s not just another faceless Euro in the NBA. He’s a professional carp fisher. I…

  16. Deng practicing with Bulls, says “the wrist is the wrist”

    Oct 3, 2012, 11:38 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Deng goes to the basket against the Miami Heat during second half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    At the end of last season, a lot of newspaper ink and Internet bandwidth in and around Chicago was spent focusing on Luol Deng’s wrist. He could have gotten surgery on it but instead he played through it then played for Great Britain in the London Olympics. Now he is back in Bulls training camp,…

  17. Paul Pierce actually thought about leaving Celtics

    Oct 3, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    It’s kind of hard to picture Paul Pierce in anything but Celtics green. For 14 seasons he has worn only the Boston uniform. He’s going to retire a Celtic. He has been there through the rough seasons and a title season. His number will end up hanging from the rafters in the Garden. But after the…

  18. Kobe did not go to Germany this summer, Lakers want to limit minutes

    Oct 3, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Media Day

    In 2010-11, Phil Jackson cut back Kobe Bryant’s minutes by five a game over the previous year. Coincidentally, Kobe Bryant’s PER jumped from 21.9 to 23.9. Last season, rookie coach Mike Brown leaned heavily on Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, with Kobe’s minutes jumping back up to 2011 levels — he was fourth in the…

  19. Sheed not in Knicks camp, yet. Contract being finalized.

    Oct 3, 2012, 9:17 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE 1:57 pm: Finally it is official, Rasheed Wallace has signed with the Knicks. Our long national nightmare is over. You can go about your lives again. 9:17 am: It’s the details. It’s always in the details. Rasheed Wallace is supposed to be a Knick. After being out of the league for a couple seasons…

  20. Adam Morrison says he makes Blazers’ roster or retires

    Oct 3, 2012, 8:53 AM EDT

    adam morrison

    Adam Morrison is back in an NBA training camp. The former No. 3 pick earned it — after being out of the league a couple years he played well enough in Serbia last season to get an invite to NBA Summer League in Vegas, and once there he averaged 20 points and 5 rebounds a…
