  1. Kings make obvious official: team not moving to Virginia Beach

    Aug 24, 2012, 11:39 AM EST

    Phil, George, Gavin Maloof

    The second this “Kings to Virginia Beach” rumor started to gain traction online, it was clearly not realistic — there are no designs for an arena in Virginia, no financing in place, not one approval and nobody had really talked to the league about it. This was the backers of the idea of an arena…

  2. Rose gets back on court soon, Noah not playing 5-on-5. Yet.

    Aug 24, 2012, 11:16 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

    Time for a little Chicago Bulls injury update, starring Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah. Both of whom missed out on an all expenses paid trip to London this summer because they were banged up.

  3. Heat have a few options to round out roster with big man

    Aug 24, 2012, 10:25 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Miami has 13 guys under guaranteed contract for next season and likely will add one more big to the roster before the season starts, giving them a little depth at center. Now, this guy will not play a lot — Miami is going to go small with Chris Bosh at the five for this season…

    You remember that whole “FIBA really wants to add 3-on-3 basketball” to the Olympics thing we were talking about as London was winding down? Well, the FIBA 3×3 World Championships are going on in Greece as you read this, 24 teams competing for this “coveted” title. The USA has a team there. Team USA is…

  5. Quote of the Day: Wade isn’t sure LeBron catches Jordan

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:41 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    I don’t know if (James) has the ability to surpass (Jordan) or not. That’s yet to be seen. My version as LeBron being on par with Michael is this: They’re both on the golf course. Michael’s on the 18th hole. LeBron is somewhere on like the fourth hole. He’s got a long way to go, but…

  6. Robin Lopez sounds like he’s comfortable in the Big Easy

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:01 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns, Game 4

    Things did not really end all that great for Robin Lopez in Phoenix. He was injured. Marcin Gortat took his job. He wasn’t a natural fit with the Suns up-tempo style. He sounds a lot more comfortable in New Orleans, at least from what he told the Associated Press. “With the exception of Phoenix, in…

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    NBA players — professional athletes in general — do not want to see an opponent go down injured. Especially one of the other team’s best players. There but for the grace of God and all. So when Dwyane Wade was on Chicago Tribune Live on Comcast SportsNet Chicago and was asked about what happened to…

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:23 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Donte Greene to the Nets, Martell Webster to the Wizards . . . If it seems like the NBA is in a bit of a personnel limbo, it is because, well, it is. For as much as the floodgates open with the July start of free agency, and for as much as things can change…

    Donte Green

    Aug 23, 2012, 5:50 PM EST

    Russians Go To The Polls In Presidential Election

    This is why Nets ownership has worked to make a move to Brooklyn — it’s all about the dollars. The Nets are worth 60 percent more now than they were last season, according to a sports economist. And they may well turn a profit this year, too. That according to the New York Post. As…

    Aug 23, 2012, 4:21 PM EST

    NBA basketball player Wade attends a showing of the Richard Chai Spring/Summer 2012 collection during New York Fashion Week

    For a lot of people, it never seemed like Dwyane Wade would leave the Miami Heat two summers ago. Sure, he was a free agent coveted by teams — and he met with the Chicago Bulls — but was more about recruiting LeBron James and Chris Bosh to join him in South Beach rather than…

  16. Ibaka unhappy with Spanish team, may skip Rio Olympics

    Aug 23, 2012, 3:56 PM EST

    Spanish centre Serge Ibaka catches the b

    Serge Ibaka looked pretty good in the gold medal game against the United States — he had 12 points and 9 rebounds, and he played 22 minutes. But apparently the minutes were an issue for Ibaka through the Olympics — he wanted more but found his role shrinking. And he is so ticked he may…

    goodman John Wall

    Last summer, John Wall was the king of the Summer League pro-am games. Well, him and Kevin Durant. But Durant went on to nearly be king of the NBA regular season, as he had a monster year that cemented his status as the best pure scorer in the game today. Wall… he went on to…

    If you’re looking to go an entire weekend speaking Klingon, Comic-Con in San Diego is the place to go. If you’re looking for NBA knowledge… not so much.
