    United States v Brazil - Men's Exhibition Game

    Today, after the USA couldn’t get an outside shot to fall and was not terribly impressive in defeating Brazil, the “Dream Team vs. 2012 debate” seems a little moot. (Although we will point out in that the Dream Team didn’t ever play a team as good as Brazil is now, let alone Spain Not that…

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love.

    Jul 17, 2012, 4:33 AM EST

    Brazil v USA - Men's Exhibition Game

    Well, that wasn’t pretty. Sure team USA beat Brazil 80-69 in an exhibition of two Olympics-bound squads front of president Barack Obama and a packed house in Washington D.C., but Brazil provided a real test for the Americans and the result was some vulnerabilities showing for Team USA. The problem was the United States could…

    The NBA Summer League is already through four days of basketball, leaving those around the world clamoring for non-Team USA basketball just six more days of games until the annual extravaganza is complete.

    jae crowder

    The Dallas Mavericks picked up quite a few rookies in this year’s NBA Draft and, to no one’s surprise, they’ve all ended up in Vegas at the annual Summer League. They’ve all shown flashes, but the most impressive player in the early-goings has been Marquette wing Jae Crowder. Crowder hasn’t been putting up huge numbers,…

  9. Kobe says even 2004 title could not have kept Shaq/Kobe Lakers together

    Jul 16, 2012, 5:59 PM EST

    Lakers v Nets

    It was the conventional wisdom at the time that if the Lakers had won the 2004 NBA title — they lost in the finals to the Detroit Pistons and their stifling defense — that Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal would have stuck it out together to chase more titles. The “winning cures all ills” theory.…

    kobe-game6-nuggets

    In his fantastic, detailed interview with a Kobe Bryant, Yahoo’s Graham Bensinger reminded him that as rookie Kobe said he would be retired and be on a beach overseas somewhere at age 35. What would 33-year-old Kobe say to that? “Still probably accurate…” Kobe said. “I’ve been playing for 17 years now, so next year…

    Jul 16, 2012, 2:25 PM EST

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    This is where many get the NBA luxury tax wrong: The third year on the offer sheet extended by the Rockets to Jeremy Lin will not cost the Knicks $43 million when factoring in the luxury tax, as some have extrapolated. It will cost the Knicks the $15 million on the third year of that…

  14. Dion Waiters shows he’s got some work to do after Summer League debut

    Jul 16, 2012, 1:50 PM EST

    Dion Waiters Summer League

    LAS VEGAS — The image you should take away of Cleveland’s Dion Waiters from his Summer League debut is him standing out by the arc, waiving his arm calling for the ball. Or maybe it is the image of him getting the inbound pass with his team down one and 3.9 seconds left in the…

    Jul 16, 2012, 1:15 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    When they brought in Steve Nash, the Lakers pushed their chips into the middle of the table to go after the title in the next couple of years. If you’re going that route, you don’t want rookies rounding out the squad, you want reliable veterans on your roster. Say for example, Grant Hill. Nash said…

  16. Brazil provides big test for Team USA Monday. Literally big.

    Jul 16, 2012, 12:11 PM EST

    Tyson Chandler

    It is the one weakness for Team USA — after Tyson Chandler there are no other true centers on the USA Basketball roster due to injuries. In The USA’s first game, against the Dominican Republic, coach Mike Krzyzewski tried Kevin Love, LeBron James and seemingly everyone but Chris Paul at the five spot. The Dominicans…

    Jul 16, 2012, 11:24 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    It is the fork in the road for the public perception of Kobe Bryant. Back in 2003 he was charged with sexual assault of a hotel employee in Eagle, Colorado (where he had been for knee surgery).
