  1. Luke Walton hired as assistant coach for the University of Memphis

    Aug 22, 2011, 5:18 PM EDT

    Walton_Luke

    Luke Walton hasn’t played much for the Lakers over the past two seasons, due to a combination of injuries and a diminished skill set relative to the rest of the talent on the roster. In his eight seasons in Los Angeles, however, he’s long been regarded as one of the more cerebral players on the…

  2. Timberwolves’ Derrick Williams working out with Kobe

    Aug 22, 2011, 4:02 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    I don’t know how good No. 2 overall pick Derrick Williams is going to be as a pro. Probably pretty good, especially as a scorer, but we don’t know what his ceiling is. Timberwolves fans, this however is a good sign. Monday he is having his first summer workout with Kobe Bryant. Williams tweeted it…

  3. Wade says what Heat endured was at times “unfair”

    Aug 22, 2011, 2:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Heat have become black and white — there are no shades of gray with this team. People do not really tolerate the “I don’t like how they handed last summer but that was still a good basketball team” position. Love or hate. Black and white. Evil and good. How you react to what you…

  4. Rondo in Lakers colors? That looks wrong to everyone.

    Aug 22, 2011, 2:08 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Fun little ad here from the fine folks at Champs sports, where they use the future of the Celtics franchise Rajon Rondo as an endorser. Then they do the least-Celtic thing possible to him. Cool of him to play along. It made us smile, and we never smile on Mondays. (Well, except at the thought…

  5. Report: Cavaliers want to retire Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ number

    Aug 22, 2011, 1:32 PM EDT

    Image (1) ilgauskas_return-thumb-250x324-8079.jpg for post 1053

    When Zydrunas Ilgauskas — one of the most beloved players in Cleveland Cavaliers history — followed LeBron James to Miami, there was not any of the same animosity. In fact, they still want to honor the Lithuanian big man who spent 13 seasons with the Cavaliers by retiring his jersey. That’s the report from lithuaniabasketball.com.…

  6. Police called to break up Humphries/Kardashian wedding

    Aug 22, 2011, 1:01 PM EDT

    Kardashian Kollection Launch Party

    Did you have the cops called out on your wedding? Then Kris Humphries has you beat. As you no doubt heard (no matter how hard you tried to avoid it, it’s a lockout and we’re hitting everything), Nets forward Humphries married Kim Kardashian over the weekend in what was tabloid television heaven. However, the Kardashian’s…

  7. Durant, Rose, more stars may play Australian exhibitions

    Aug 22, 2011, 12:25 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    NBA stars may be headed down under. If — we keep saying “if” even though it almost certainly is a “when” — the lockout drags into the regular season some top NBA players may be headed to Australia for an exhibition tour of a few games, reports the News Herald (via the Orange County Register).…

  8. Delonte West thinking less Home Depot, more Sam’s Club

    Aug 22, 2011, 12:01 PM EDT

    Delonte West

    We told you last week how Delonte West said he applied for a job at Home Depot to work during the lockout. And because it’s Delonte we weren’t sure if he was kidding or not. He wasn’t (and he hasn’t heard back yet). But in comments to ESPN, he actually sounded a little more down…

  9. Orlando mayor counting on new CBA to help team keep Howard

    Aug 22, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The mayor of Orlando is working hard to keep Dwight Howard in Orlando (remember he can and likely will opt out of his current deal next summer), taking part in online efforts to woo Howard. And he thinks he’s got some real help coming in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Here is what mayor Buddy…

  10. Nets get extension with YES Network, double TV deal

    Aug 22, 2011, 10:52 AM EDT

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    The New Jersey Nets just made a lot more money. The soon-to-be Brooklyn team (they move for the start of the 2012 season) will double its annual intake to $20 million a season as part of a 10-year extension that will keep the Nets on the YES network until 2032, reports the Sports Business Journal.…

  11. LeBron says he is in for the 2012 Olympics in London

    Aug 22, 2011, 10:34 AM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    There were concerns that if the lockout is still going on next summer (and there is a real chance of that happening) that the best NBA players would stay away because USA Basketball is seen as a David Stern production. But if you think the best players are going to miss the chance to win…

  12. LeBron says week after finals loss was worst he ever had

    Aug 22, 2011, 10:17 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    A Miami Heat team in it’s first season together went all the way to the NBA finals before losing to a Dallas Mavericks team that found it’s stride after years together. That chemistry was part of the difference in that series. Watching the Heat lose was something fans everywhere and Kevin Love savored. You should…

  13. Report: Kevin Durant near deal to star in movie

    Aug 22, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    West Team's Kevin Durant of Oklahoma Cit

    Could Kevin Durant open a movie better than Denzel Washington? Shaq? We may soon find out. The man who has grown his fame this summer via a grassroots campaign  — dropping 66 at Rucker Park, putting on a show at the Goodman vs. Drew league game and dominating at pro-am games nationwide — may be about to…

  14. Report: Chinese team still trying to get Kobe… for exhibitions

    Aug 22, 2011, 8:14 AM EDT

    NBA basketball player Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers smiles to fans upon his arrival at a stadium during his 2011 China Tour in Changsha

    Kobe Bryant cannot play in a Chinese Basketball Association league game. Last week that league shut down what might have been an NBA influx ruling that only NBA free agents can be signed by Chinese teams. Players under contract — Kobe, Dwyane Wade, Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant and others — cannot be signed even with…

  15. Police investigate the home of Zach Randolph in “drug-related assault”

    Aug 22, 2011, 12:34 AM EDT

    zach-randolph-game-6

    There’s nothing good about this. There are things which aren’t bad. Like the fact that Zach Randolph is not currently under investigation for anything illegal. That’s not a bad thing. The fact that no one was seriously injured. That’s not a bad thing. But everything else? Everything else is pretty much bad. From the Oregonian:…

  16. Herb Simon says to chill out on the Reggie Miller talk

    Aug 21, 2011, 6:39 PM EDT

    reggie-miller

    There were reports earlier this week that the Pacers were considering bringing in Reggie Miller to work under Larry Bird in the hopes that Bird could help groom Miller to be his successor. It was a pretty good plan considering Bird’s been on the fence for the past three seasons about whether to retire or…

  17. Infamous booster Nevin Shapiro allegedly hung out with Dwyane Wade, Shaq, along with rest of Miami

    Aug 21, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat basketball player Dwyane Wade attends a fashion show of the Yves Saint Laurent collection as part of spring-summer 2012 men's fashion season presented in Paris on Friday, June 24, 2011

    It was only really a matter of time, honestly. Nevin Shapiro is the infamous convict who ran a Ponzi scheme and recently provided enough detailed evidence of widespread corruption and NCAA violation at the University of Miami to tarnish their reputation for a decade. The U is a nuclear wasteland right now as the NCAA…

  18. NBA player who started 44 games marries person famous for nothing in expensive ceremony

    Aug 21, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Kardashian Kollection Launch Party

    From the department of “We’re not sure why this is actually news” comes word of Saturday’s big event. The huge showdown. The titanic clash. Of course I’m talking about the Kardashian-Humphries wedding. From the Toronto Star: According to the Hollywood Reporter, the price tag for the wedding — with 500-plus invited guests — will be…

  19. Derrick Rose says he’s going to win multiple championships. Sound familiar?

    Aug 21, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Derrick Rose spoke to HoopsHype at an event in Madrid. Among a number of subjects, Rose talked about working on a post game, which is a pretty exciting idea, even if every superstar says they’re working on a post-game in the summer and few actually implement one. But more interesting was this little tidbit. Time…

  20. Brandon Jennings wants a Drew-Goodman rematch, KD says they’ll oblige. Will Kobe join in?

    Aug 21, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    Kevin Durant dropped 44 in the Drew-Goodman showdown Saturday and the Drew League won 135-134. But, as is custom for exhibition games in which the players are not making much if anything at all in a hastily organized game versus an NBA game for which the players get paid millions and which drives the emotions…
