  1. We’ve got more players named “Shaq” in college basketball, expect Kobes to follow

    If you’re not looking at Ken Pomeroy’s Kenpom.com when you are putting together your NCAA Tournament bracket picks… well those of us who do use it would like to thank you. Please, keep picking your teams based on cities you like to visit. (Sadly, that really works some years.) Ken had up a very interesting…

  2. Nerlens Noel says he’s feeling like his old self, still no timetable

    Sep 18, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    The Philadelphia 76ers are not going to rush Nerlens Noel back on the court. More like the opposite. They are not in it for winning this season, they are in for the long haul and the lottery, which is why they took on Noel in a trade for Jrue Holiday — Noel has a high…

  3. Josh Smith working with Rasheed Wallace on midrange shots, post moves

    Sep 18, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    Last season, Josh Smith shot 30.5 percent from the midrange. He was less bad (38.4 percent) if he was 15 feet out closer to the baselines, but in general if Smith wanted to take a midrange jumper the other team would let him. With Smith going to be the starting three for the Detroit Pistons,…

  4. Wizards’ Chris Singleton out 6-8 weeks with foot injury

    Sep 18, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    Chris Singleton

    The Wizards thought that the basketball gods owed them some good injury Karma after the past couple seasons. Doesn’t appear the gods feel the same way. The Wizards have lost Chris Singleton for 6-8 weeks due to a fracture in his left foot at the base of his small toe, reports J. Michael at CSNWashington.com.…

  5. Rockets’ GM Morey: There are at least three teams better than us

    Sep 18, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

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

    Expectations are high around the Rockets. They made big strides last season getting James Harden in the fold, playing an exciting up-tempo brand of basketball, winning 45 games and getting into the playoffs. Then they went out and got Dwight Howard. The talk in Houston is of a title — this team is a contender…

  6. This Grizzlies season promo video is pretty darn good

    Sep 18, 2013, 11:43 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Well done. The line that hope has been replaced by expectations in Memphis hits the nail on the head — they reached the Western Conference Finals last season and fans now expect that or more. And that is going to be hard to do for a few reasons. For one, I don’t think Memphis really…

  7. Pistons’ Villanueva testified former UConn player Tate George scammed $250,000 from him

    Sep 18, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    While there were a whole lot of Pistons players in Detroit on Tuesday working out to get ready for training camp, Charlie Villanueva was on a witness stand. Federal prosecutors in New Jersey are going after former Connecticut Huskies basketball player Tate George saying he is a con man who misused money invested with his…

  8. Report: Thibodeau not happy Deng could walk after season

    Sep 18, 2013, 10:52 AM EDT

    Luol Deng

    While everyone around the Bulls plays it down, let’s just say it’s accepted as fact around the rest of the league that coach Tom Thibodeau and Bulls GM Gar Forman (and the rest of the front office) don’t see things the same way. There is naturally some tension in any coach/GM relationship — a coach…

  9. Watch Nate Robinson go through preseason workouts

    Sep 18, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game One

    Nate Robinson — who is with the Denver Nuggets this season, in case you lost track of his travels — is like virtually every other NBA player right now: It’s pre-camp workout times. Most players get to their cities a month or more before the season starts and workout with teammates on and off the…

  10. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The New York Knicks

    Sep 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    Last season: If you’ll recall, New York’s offseason leading up to last year was widely regarded as a joke. Jeremy Lin was let go, Raymond Felton was brought in, and then the Knicks seemed to sign all the oldest players available in free agency. But with the benefit of hindsight, the Knicks did about as well…

  11. Report: Gilbert Arenas may receive training camp invite from Clippers

    Sep 18, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas china

    Gilbert Arenas last played in the NBA for the Memphis Grizzlies during the 2011-12 season. But he may be getting a chance to return to the league next year, and do so as a member of a team expected to be in the mix to battle deep into the postseason. From Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld:…

  12. Report: Andrew Bynum ‘nowhere near ready,’ likely to miss preseason

    Sep 18, 2013, 12:16 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    The Cavaliers took a chance on Andrew Bynum, but it was a small one considering that the team signed him to a contract that is only guaranteed for $6 million, and doesn’t become fully guaranteed until after January 10. There would seem to be an incentive for Bynum to get back on the court for…

  13. Kickstarter campaign raising funds to finish Steve Nash documentary

    Sep 17, 2013, 11:09 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash has had an NBA career that will eventually land him in the Hall of Fame. He’s earned two league MVPs, led the league in assists five times, and will very possibly end up as the all-time leader in free throw percentage before his career is all said and done. But there’s always been…

  14. Lakers make Marcus Landry signing official

    Sep 17, 2013, 10:02 PM EDT

    marcus landry lakers

    We’ve known about Marcus Landry getting a training camp invite from the Lakers for quite some time, but the team made things official with an announcement on Monday. Landry earned his spot with a stellar performance for the Lakers at the Las Vegas Summer League, where he averaged 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26.5 minutes…

  15. New team, new tattoo — Jason Terry getting Nets tattoo

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:59 PM EDT

    JasonTerry

    Back in the summer of 2010, then Maverick Jason Terry got the Larry O’Brien trophy tattooed on his arm… and we all laughed. Dallas was a good team but a whole lot of things needed to break their way to win the title. Pretty much everything broke their way and a Dallas team that melded…

  16. Sean Marks to become assistant coach for Spurs

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

    sean marks spurs

    The Spurs have been the model of consistency in the NBA when it comes to the personnel in place running things in both the front office and on the sidelines. R.C Buford has been the team’s GM since 2002, and Gregg Popovich has been the head coach since 1996. His assistant coaches were in place…

  17. TNT’s Steve Kerr predicts Bulls will knock off Heat this year

    Sep 17, 2013, 7:03 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The last team to make the NBA Finals four straight years was Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics from 1984-87 — so many things need to go right for you to make the Finals (health being the key) that it’s hard to have it all break for you year after year after year. So expect a lot…

  18. Kings to televise season opener without commercials

    Sep 17, 2013, 5:58 PM EDT

    Kings Sale Basketball

    On Oct. 30 when you tune in — or at least the people in Sacramento tune in — to watch the Kings season opener as they host the Denver Nuggets, there will be no commercials during the broadcast. You read that right, no commercials. Zero. The time that would normally be filled with a Blake…

  19. Chandler Parsons talks recruiting Dwight, Rockets, Jeremy Lin with NBC Sports

    Sep 17, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Premiere Of Relativity Media's "Paranoia" - Red Carpet

    Chandler Parsons was front and center in the recruiting of Dwight Howard to Houston, they share an agent and Parsons sold Howard on this being fun, collegal and they could win a lot of games (Howard needs to have fun and win). Whatever he did, it worked. Parsons swung by the NBC Sports Studios to…

  20. What if Dennis Rodman isn’t all that wrong?

    Sep 17, 2013, 4:03 PM EDT

    US-NKOREA-DIPLOMACY-BASKET-RODMAN

    This Dennis Rodman saga just keeps getting more and more unbelievable. Unless you live under a rock and/or are otherwise disconnected from modern technology, you’ve heard at least something about the former Bulls forward’s North Korean activities backed by Irish oddsmakers Paddy Power, PLC. Not only has the guy visited North Korea twice, referring to dictator…
