    Eric Gordon USA

    Eric Gordon really doesn’t like not having a choice where he plays next season. He clearly wants to be wanted and we should all admit the Hornets didn’t really handle that well (Gordon says neither GM Dell Demps nor coach Monty Williams have reached out to him since free agency started). But Eric — stop…

  9. Another reason Nash chose L.A.? Future movie career.

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:32 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    The primary reasons Steve Nash is a Laker are he could be close to his children who live in Phoenix, there’s ‘s the chance to contend with Kobe Bryant, and there’s the money (three years, $27 million). Put those in whatever order you deem appropriate. But after that, there’s his future in movies. Not necessarily…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns, Game 5

    At age 38, Marcus Camby still brings some things to the table — height (6’11”), shot blocking, a deadly pick-and-pop midrange jumper. All things coveted by some contenders.

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s not the end of the world for the Mavericks that this summer hasn’t gone according to plan. Not in the least. But that is not going to make this coming season any prettier. Jason Terry joins the long list of departed from the Dallas title team. The Mavericks are now chasing guys not on…

    Summer League is the Spring Training of the NBA. Kind of. It’s very casual, fans can get a lot closer to players than during the regular season, you get to see a lot of prospects up close, you can follow the top draft rookies and/or the guys trying to get that 15th roster spot, and…
