    Sep 25, 2013, 8:49 AM EDT

    NCAA Championship Game: Michigan State Spartans v North Carolina Tar Heels

    The Pacers took the eventual champion Heat to seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals a season ago, and reloaded with plenty of reserve talent this summer. In addition to the return of Danny Granger to the lineup, Indiana added Luis Scola, Chris Copeland, and C.J. Watson in order to solidify the bench unit for…

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    Last season: The Pacers continued their upward trajectory – missing the playoffs in 2009-10, reaching the first round in 2010-11, reaching the second round in 2011-12 and reaching the conference finals in 2012-13. With George Hill, Lance Stephenson, Paul George, David West and Roy Hibbert, Indiana had statistically the best lineup in the NBA. The…

    Sep 25, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    If you’re at all a fan of professional basketball, then virtually all of this summer’s news involving Lamar Odom has been nothing short of painful to watch. Odom was a special talent in this league, and when engaged could perform at the game’s highest levels. He took home  the Sixth Man of the Year award…

  4. Kevin Durant says Dwyane Wade is no longer a top-10 NBA player, Wade responds

    wade durant

    Kevin Durant did a media tour promoting the work he’s doing with one of his sponsors, and any time you’re in front of the camera for that long answering a seemingly endless stream of questions, you’re bound to say something that could be construed as an insult by someone who may be looking for some…

  5. Roger Mason Jr. works out for the Heat

    Sep 24, 2013, 10:31 PM EDT

    Roger Mason Jr. Hornets

    When we last heard from Roger Mason Jr., he was planning to run for the players’ union’s presidency, and was even considered likely to be the one to win the job based on several years of experience in dealing with union matters. That was before LeBron James briefly considered the role, and before Chris Paul…

    bucks newcourt

    The Bucks unveiled a new court design during an event held at the Milwaukee Art Museum on Tuesday, and if you’re familiar with the history of the franchise, then the floor’s look may bring back some memories. The Bucks had the team’s original play-by-play announcer Eddie Doucette on hand to help with the introductions, and current…

  7. “Shaq-ramento” era begins in Sacramento. Strange as it sounds.

    Sep 24, 2013, 8:20 PM EDT

    Shaquille O'Neal

    It sounds strange to anybody that followed the Kings and Lakers rivalry over the last decade, but the “Shaqramento” era took off on Tuesday in Sacramento, where minority owner and team consultant Shaquille O’Neal introduced himself to the media. As quotatious and loquacious as ever, Shaq sounded less like the sometimes tongue-tied analyst we see…

  8. Reports: NBA to announce Nets/Knicks will co-host 2015 All-Star Game

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    We told you this was coming a while ago, but on Wednesday the NBA will make it official: The NBA All-Star game is going back to one of basketball’s meccas, where the streets will make you feel brand new, bright lights will inspire you and all that… The New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets will…

  9. Knicks bring in Cole Aldrich, but with camp invite only

    Sep 24, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Cole Aldrich

    The guy drafted one spot ahead of Cole Aldrich back in 2010 is on the cusp of signing a $90 million contract extension (Paul George). Aldrich has been the opposite NBA story. He could not carve out a spot in Oklahoma City (losing time to Nick Collison), and while he had a short stint with…

  10. Jason Kidd says Joe Johnson gets the Nets final shot

    Sep 24, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute

    Deron Williams. Paul Pierce. Kevin Garnett. Jason Terry. Every last one of them can create their own shot and have hit clutch shots before. Plenty of them. So when a Brooklyn Nets game comes down to :06 left and they need a bucket, Jason Kidd is going to design a play for… Joe Johnson. That’s…

  11. Report: Toronto to host 2016 NBA All-Star Game

    Have your passport ready by 2016…. The NBA is taking the All-Star Game to Toronto, according to Ryan Wolstat (a very respectable source) of the Toronto Sun. Multiple sources told the Toronto Sun Tuesday that the Raptors are on the verge of landing the 2016 NBA all-star weekend. An official announcement is expected within the…

  12. Report: Brandon Jennings punched by rapper The Game at L.A. club

    Sep 24, 2013, 3:26 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars

    This post must start with a disclaimer: Take all of this with plenty of salt. Reports of what celebrities did in a club late at night are as reliable as milk a week past the use by date. But if you choose to believe the reports, apparently rapper The Game got fed up with Brandon…

  13. Lakers’ trainer says “gentlemen’s agreement” let Kobe take free throws after injury

    Sep 24, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    For Kobe Bryant’s legions of fans, the fact he hobbled to the free throw line and drained two free shots after his Achilles tendon ruptured is just another testament to his toughness. And it was pretty impressive. Now the details of how that came about are out. Longtime Lakers trainer Gary Vitti explained it to…

  14. Magic GM says team cautious with Glen Davis’ return, could miss start of camp

    Sep 24, 2013, 2:13 PM EDT

    Glen Davis

    It was thought a month ago that Glen Davis would be back for the start of Orlando’s training camp after missing most of last season following foot surgery. Maybe not. Orlando GM Rob Hennigan did a Q&A with Orlando’s own site and sounded very cautious about the return of Davis. “He’s progressing on schedule and…

  15. Quote of the day: Shaq is renaming Sacramento “Shaq-ramento”

    Sep 24, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Shaquille O'Neal

    “The new name of the town will be ‘Shaq-ramento, capital of California.” —Shaquille O’Neal, now one of the O’ners of the Sacramento Kings, at his introductory press conference in that role. We’ll have more from this press conference later, but Shaq was a vintage version of himself speaking to Sacramento. He apologized for calling the…

  16. Miami Heat take training camp to Bahamas next week

    Sep 24, 2013, 1:14 PM EDT

    TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY CHRISTIAN CHAISE

    The real question is are the Miami Heat getting to training camp aboard a Carnival Cruise ship? After media day next week, the Miami Heat are taking their training camp to the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas. Yes, that is serious, the team announced it Tuesday. Two seasons ago — the first season…

  17. Felton says younger Knicks better prepared for long season

    Sep 24, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    2013 Yao Foundation Charity Game Press Conference

    Gone are Jason Kidd, Rasheed Wallace, Kurt Thomas, and Marcus Camby. In their place are Metta World Peace, Andrea Bargnani, Beno Udrih, and Tim Hardaway, Jr. It’s not quite that clean and simple (Chris Copeland and Steve Novak are gone as well) but the idea is clear — New York got younger. Last season they…

  18. No, still no timetable for Andrew Bynum. What, you expected one?

    Sep 24, 2013, 12:23 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum on the court and playing anywhere near his old self would be a game changer for the Cavaliers. That’s not really in doubt. Bynum getting on the court and playing like his old self is where the doubt comes in. After watching the public relations train wreck that was Philadelphia last season, the…

    New York Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire dunks during their NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    New York is going to great lengths to protect the knees of Amar’e Stoudemire. He is in New York and working out at the team facility with his fellow teammates in advance of training camp opening next week — but when the scrimmages start he sits them out, reports Ian Begley at ESPNNewYork.com. The reason…

  20. Rondo could be out until December Celtics GM Ainge says

    Sep 24, 2013, 11:24 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Well, the good news is Avery Bradley is healthy and ready for training camp to start. That’s particularly good because he could be playing the point for the first couple months of the season, sharing time with rookie Phil Pressey. All that because Rajon Rondo could be out until December. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was…
