  1. NBA Preview: Detroit Pistons

    Sep 28, 2012, 4:57 PM EST

    Greg Monroe, D.J. White, DeSagana Diop

    Last season: They are a rebuilding team, so you don’t expect them to be good and the 25-41 record reflected that. But they flew under a lot of people’s radar because they are just not that interesting to watch. They are not good on offense, not good on defense, they have a couple nice players…

  2. Video: Kobe Bryant meets young fan on Ellen show

    Sep 28, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    US basketball player Kobe Bryant reacts

    What is with all the Lakers going on Ellen? Kobe Bryant was on the daytime talk show (which you watch, admit it) and got to meet a young fan, who won seats to an upcoming Lakers game by beating Kobe in a shootout. Enjoy the one and only time you get to see non-competitive Kobe.…

  3. Tony Parker’s eye injury behind him… but are the goggles?

    Sep 28, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    French guard Tony Parker is pictred duri

    What’s really important for the Spurs and their fans is that Tony Parker is fine. The eye injured by a flying bottle when Parker just happened to be in the same New York nightclub where the Drake/Chris Brown fight took place. That story must never get old. Parker played in the Olympics, so he was…

  4. Chris Bosh is just chillin’, getting ready to play center

    Sep 28, 2012, 2:31 PM EST

    Chris Bosh

    Chris Bosh is a pretty chill dude. Even at media day. After coming back sooner than he should have to be a key part of the Heat’s title run last season (he changed the Boston series and was key against Oklahoma City), he had to spend the rest of the summer getting over the abdominal…

  5. John Wall out two months with stress fracture in patella

    Sep 28, 2012, 1:22 PM EST

    John Wall

    This is not good. In a lot of ways. Wizards point guard John Wall will be out about eight weeks with a stress fracture discovered in his patella (his kneecap), the team announced Friday. This means he is likely off the court until around Thanksgiving. The good news is it is something they discovered early,…

  6. Report: Gilbert Arenas considering playing in China

    Sep 28, 2012, 12:26 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Gilbert Arenas wants another shot in the NBA. He’s working out at the Lakers facilities. His agent is calling GMs all over the place. Arenas is telling gas station managers his plans and that’s somehow becoming a rumor. The truth — there are no calls for him. Teams are not interested. They weigh the off-court…

  7. Warriors trying to tone down the rhetoric and just win, baby

    Sep 28, 2012, 12:07 PM EST

    Mark Jackson

    Before last season the Warriors were brash. New owners, new coach right out of the broadcast booth where he was paid to be opinionated. They were trying to create a new aura around the long-struggling Warriors. The organization top to bottom talked openly about making the playoffs. Then they didn’t make the playoffs. Overpromise and…

  8. Report: ESPN considering Isiah Thomas as studio analyst

    Sep 28, 2012, 11:07 AM EST

    Isiah Thomas

    You may not remember this, but before Isiah Thomas was a bad college coach or was ruining the Knicks, he was a pretty mediocre television analyst back when this network broadcast NBA games. Now, ESPN/ABC may be bringing him back to the studio. At least they are thinking about it, reports the New York Post.…

  9. Josh Howard talking to four teams, apparently near decision

    Sep 28, 2012, 10:44 AM EST

    Josh Howard Jazz

    Josh Howard is still on the free agent market as training camps start to open. We got another report — this one from soon-to-be Astros beat man (he will be missed) Brian Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune — that he is talking to four teams and is nearing a decision. Those teams are the…

  10. The NBA is back! Training camps open for Heat, Clippers, Celtics, Mavs

    Sep 28, 2012, 10:08 AM EST

    Miami Heat Media Day

    The NBA is back. Well, not games. Not even practices, yet. But four teams open training camps with media day today — the defending champion Miami Heat, the Boston Celtics, the Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Clippers. They start a couple days before everyone else because they are all headed overseas for exhibition games.…

  11. Danny Granger talks about taking it slow with knee recovery

    Sep 28, 2012, 9:30 AM EST

    dgranger

    If the regular season started tomorrow, Danny Granger says he could play. But we are a little more than a month away from the Indiana Pacers tipping off their season so Danny Granger is taking things slow with his recovery from off-season knee issue. It’s not something that required surgery, but Granger doesn’t want it…

  12. Dooling says Rondo is NBA’s second best player. Behind Durant.

    Sep 28, 2012, 8:48 AM EST

    Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo celebrates during their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Los Angeles

    Keyon Dooling said some genuinely important things during his CSNNE.com interview this week, and if you haven’t read about his discussion of him being abused you should do that first. It matters more than basketball. But Dooling talked basketball, too, and let’s just say he’s higher on Rajon Rondo than you are. Really, he’s higher…

  13. Tyson Chandler hosted art exhibit of his own works in NYC

    Sep 28, 2012, 8:18 AM EST

    tyson-chandler-jason-kidd-michael-strahan-exhibit

    Sometimes fans ask me why players want to go to Los Angeles or New York instead of fine cities like Houston or Milwaukee. It’s because of the opportunities. Like teaching Ellen to Dougie. It’s because if you are Tyson Chandler playing for the Knicks, you can host a charity exhibit of your own art work…

  14. Fining NBA players for flopping is not the panacea it seems

    Sep 28, 2012, 2:25 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, Tony Parker, flop

    When news came out of the NBA’s referee training Thursday that the league was setting a punishment system up for flopping, the general reaction was “it’s about time.” And it is — the league should have been fining guys for egregious flops for years. There are guys that deserve the fines, like Reggie Evans in…

  15. Video: Kevin Love throws out first pitch at Twins game

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:27 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    So that is NBA All-Star and gold medalist Kevin Love throwing out the first pitch at a Twins game. I’ll be honest, for my personal amusement I was hoping he would bounce this up to the plate, or throw it wide and hit the Durham Bull, or something that was terrible. But really, it’s a…

  16. More video of Dwight Howard working on post moves and… free throws?

    Sep 27, 2012, 9:02 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    It was so much fun yesterday, let’s do it again (can you tell it’s the deadest part of the off-season?) Here is more video from our Lakers friends of Dwight Howard working out at the team facilities. I see some post moves and… free throws? Well, good. If he could raise his percentage up to…

  17. Report: NBA nearing new policy on flopping penalties

    Sep 27, 2012, 7:54 PM EST

    Image (1) Nba_logo-thumb-250x250-17150-thumb-250x250-17151.png for post 3595

    Last season, concerns about flopping rocketed up the list of NBA issues. It’s not like flopping was anything new to the NBA, but it was in the spotlight and gathering attention. Basketball was drawing soccer comparisons. And if there is one thing David Stern can’t tolerate, it’s the image of the NBA being sullied (lockouts…

  18. Keyon Dooling talks about being abused as child

    Sep 27, 2012, 6:47 PM EST

    Boston Celtics' Dooling celebrates a teammate's basket against the Miami Heat during Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

    Retiring from the NBA is an emotional thing, especially for the guys who get to do it on their own terms. It was that way for Keyon Dooling, who after a dozen NBA seasons had signed on to play one more for the Celtics, but as he prepared for the season he realized he didn’t…

  19. NBA Season Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers

    Sep 27, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    Kyrie Irving

    Last season: Despite the ugly record of 21-45, there was hope last season in Cleveland in the name of Kyrie Irving. The No. 1 draft pick out of Duke was Rookie of the Year and looked like a future All-Star. (Then he carried that over to his performance with the USA Select Team this summer…

  20. Rubio says he hopes for December return, but will not rush it

    Sep 27, 2012, 5:06 PM EST

    Ricky Rubio

    This is pretty much the timeline we have expected from Ricky Rubio — he is shooting to return sometime around Christmas from a torn ACL — but what is good to hear is he is looking at the long term. Rubio’s return for two-thirds (give or take) of the NBA season is key to the…
