  1. Has Tyreke Evans developed a reliable jump shot?

    Aug 25, 2011, 1:35 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, John Salmons

    Tyreke Evans is a beast when he drives the lane. Just a couple years into the league he is one of the best penetrators in the league and he finished an impressive 59.8 percent of shots when he got inside. But if you could keep him outside it was a different story. He shot 25.2…

  2. If you thought Phil Jackson was weird, check out Turkish coaches

    Aug 25, 2011, 12:42 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Phil Jackson did some pretty out-of-the-box things as a coach — group meditation and drum beating to get his team focused and unified. That whole Zen thing of letting teams find their own way by not calling timeouts. But he has nothing on what is going on in Turkey. That is where Deron Williams and…

  3. Video: Jordan Farmar is one popular guy in Israel

    Aug 25, 2011, 11:43 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets' Farmar reacts to missed shot at buzzer as Dallas Mavericks win their NBA basketball game in Newark

    Jordan Farmar — one of the handful of Jewish players in the NBA — will play during the lockout for Maccabi Tel Aviv, essentially the Yankees of the Israeli league and a European powerhouse. And they are pretty excited to have him there — this is video of his arrival at the airport. (hat tip…

  4. Mo Evans reiterates just how far apart owners, players are

    Aug 25, 2011, 11:18 AM EDT

    NBA Labor Negotiations Continue As Deadline Looms

    Great news — the owners and players reportedly will sit down at a table next week and talk about a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. And maybe a season. Not that it will do any good. Don’t believe me? Look at what National Basketball Players Association VP Mo Evans told Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated then tell…

  5. Judge cites twitter in saying Arenas’ ex can go on “Basketball Wives”

    Aug 25, 2011, 10:34 AM EDT

    Arenas magic

    Gilbert Arenas’ twitter account got him in some trouble again. Arenas had sued trying to stop a former fiancé Laura Govan from going on VH1’s new series “Basketball Wives L.A.” which debuts next week. Maybe the most amazing thing to me is that show did well enough to get a spin-off. Who is watching that…

  6. One thing the owners really want — to get out of bad deals

    Aug 25, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    Arenas_beardshot

    Next season, Kobe Bryant will be the highest paid player in the NBA. That seems fair. Rashard Lewis will be second at $22.1 million. Gilbert Arenas will be fifth at $19.2 million. Antawn Jamison will make $15 million. There are some terrible deals in the NBA landscape and one of the real sticking points in…

  7. Donnie Walsh is relaxing in Indiana, not retired

    Aug 25, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    After the Knicks thanked Donnie Walsh for turning around the franchise by kicking him to the curb and making him a “consultant,” he went home to Indiana. There the notorious workaholic has relaxed. Spent time with his family, done work around the house and a few crossword puzzles, basically just taken it easy. Which is…

  8. Report: Mark Jackson tied to alleged drug kingpin

    Aug 25, 2011, 8:02 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Well, this is something for the new coach to explain. Newly named, yet-to-coach-one-game for the Golden State Warriors Mark Jackson has been tied to Warren Braithwaite, a man arrested in June by the DEA in an interstate drug ring bust, reports Star Magazine. The same report ties Lady Gaga and Jamie Foxx to the same…

  9. Report: NBA players, owners to meet next week. Maybe.

    9752815-large

    There are conflicting reports out there about future meetings between the players and owners next week. But we are optimists, we believe a meeting will happen. Even if we have to close our eyes, plug our nose and act like a three-year-old in front of a plate of Brussels sprouts to avoid reality. The owners…

  10. Video: Dennis Rodman on stage with Pearl Jam circa 1998

    Aug 24, 2011, 8:25 PM EDT

    Dennis Rodman

    All the talk around Dennis Rodman and his induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame caused Spurs beat writer Jeff McDonald of the Express-News to send out this classic Rodman video. We take you back to 1998, when Rodman was in his last season with the Bulls, when he was still a prolific rebounder…

  11. C.J. Miles reportedly looks trim, ready for camp… oh, yea

    Aug 24, 2011, 7:11 PM EDT

    MILES_CJ

    There’s a transition that often happens with guys who enter the NBA right out of high school or after a year or college — for the first couple seasons they eat like crap. They have gotten by on natural ability and a high metabolism for so long it takes them a while to learn to…

  12. Video: Derrick Rose is better at hoops than a Chinese singer

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Every other major star has done it, now it was Derrick Rose’s turn to be on the promotional tour through China and surrounding lands. As part of a clinic in Hong Kong, he played a little one-on-one against Pakho, a singer and songwriter based out of Hong Kong. If Wikipedia is to be believed, he…

  13. Hornets pick up another major sponsor: Chevron

    Aug 24, 2011, 4:53 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    While the lockout promises to stall out the momentum the NBA built up last season — it still feels like both players and owners underestimate how pissed off the casual fan will be if games are missed in a recession — the momentum to keep the Hornets in New Orleans goes on strong. To the…

  14. Report: Woodson likely to be D’Antoni assistant with Knicks

    Aug 24, 2011, 4:33 PM EDT

    IL: Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls

    Mike Woodson is the guy who has just missed out. The former Hawks head coach — that team got better every year he was there — has interviewed for every NBA head coaching job opening this summer.  And he is struck out every time. So it looks like he is going to be the “defensive…

  15. Why isn’t Barkley in NBA 2K12? Money.

    Aug 24, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    barkley-sixers

    NBA 2K12, by putting 15 legends of the NBA into this year’s game, sparked a little debate — which 15 guys should be in? It’s easy to say Michael Jordan and Magic, but when it gets to around 15 the lines are not so clear. Especially when you know the game makers are giving extra…

  16. Today’s overseas roundup: Scalabrine going, McGee staying

    Brian Scalabrine

    Here is our almost daily round-up of which NBA players have signed overseas, which have not, and which could not find Europe on a map. • Brian Scalabrine is about to make Italy more fun. He is getting a tryout the next couple weeks with the Italian club Treviso (a EuroLeague club that has E’Twaun…

    If you’re not familiar with funnyordie.com, well, welcome to the Internet, rookie. There will be some hazing. Started five years back with some help from Will Ferrell, the site is a collection of comedy videos, slideshows, original skits and more featuring celebrities such as Zach Galifianakis (personal favorite on that site).

  18. Spurs delay millions in arena upgrades. Not like they’ll need it soon.

    Aug 24, 2011, 1:58 PM EDT

    ATT-CENTER

    Among the signs you should just try and get comfortable because this lockout is going to be a long, bumpy ride…. Bexar County — which includes San Antonio — has helped clear the way for the Spurs to save millions by putting off planned upgrades to the AT&T Center (where the Spurs play). The San…

  19. Jeff Green admits it was “tough” joining Celtics last season

    Aug 24, 2011, 1:03 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green came into an almost impossible situation with the Celtics last season — this was a team on a title quest and he was traded for a starter loved by fans and teammates in Kendrick Perkins. He walked in the door with everybody already looking at him askew. Then he struggled to find his…

  20. Dwyane Wade says Heat will see less hate next season

    Aug 24, 2011, 12:32 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    Is last season’s white-hot hate for all things Miami going to cool down to just red-hot? I see the comments on this site and in my twitter timeline when I dare suggest that he hatred for all things Miami will cool with time, especially if they win a title or two — you don’t believe…
