    Oct 31, 2012, 5:30 PM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    Under the new CBA, a lot of quality veterans who were used to getting a few million to play have had to sign for less than they thought they were worth, taking veteran minimum deals. Kenyon Martin wouldn’t play that game, he wanted to get paid. Now Martin isn’t playing any game — no team…

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    After a dismal opening night performance at home in a loss to Dallas, the Lakers will take to the road for their second game in as many nights against a Blazers team that’s ready and waiting. There was plenty wrong with L.A. on Tuesday — the offense was horrid, and the defense (if you want…

    Amar’e Stoudemire is getting further away from his return to the basketball court for the Knicks, but even if he was ready, we’re unsure how he’d even make it out of his neighborhood.

    Oct 31, 2012, 2:16 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown (R) chats to Steve Nash of Canada during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks in their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    That wasn’t pretty. The Lakers offense in their opening night loss really wasn’t much of anything. It wasn’t very Princeton with its reads and spacing (only in flashes). It wasn’t up-tempo. It wasn’t much pick-and-roll despite some deadly combos on the floor. It really just wasn’t much of anything except making a point to get…

    Oct 31, 2012, 10:35 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant reacts during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks in their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Kobe Bryant looked Kobe Bryant in the opener — early on he was getting touches at the rim and was moving well, later in the game he drained a rainbow contested long two he never should have taken. He looked a little slower trying to defend O.J.Mayo off the ball as the game wore on,…

  16. Kevin Garnett tries to explain why he couldn’t shake Ray Allen’s hand

    Oct 31, 2012, 9:34 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    This is Kevin Garnett’s act — he plays in some 1960s NBA where the players hate the opposing players on and off the court and want nothing to do with them. Fans eat it up because that’s how they feel even though often KG comes off as an a******. Which brings us to last night,…

    Oct 31, 2012, 8:40 AM EST

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James reacts after scoring on a dunk as Boston Celtics defenders look on during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Enjoy that dunk for its power. The dunk is full of so many of LeBron James‘ gifts — handles, speed, strength that all come together in an almost unfair package. It is one of the big highlights from the Heat’s opening night win over Boston. But watch that dunk again and see that Ray Allen…
