  1. Winderman: Juwan Howard, other name players could fade away from NBA

    Sep 10, 2012, 10:05 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The fadeaway long has been an NBA fact of life. While the stars hold press conferences to announce enough is enough, their fame to keep them in the spotlight (and possibly part of broadcast teams) long after their playing days — something we soon might get from Ben Wallace — for the majority of those…

  2. Video: Blake Griffin can still dunk. Very, very hard.

    Sep 10, 2012, 8:43 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

    Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield is a confident man. And apparently not all that bright at times. He thought he could get up enough to block a Blake Griffin dunk during an workout (Griffin was back at his alma mater). That goes about as well as you’d expect. He could have asked Kendrick Perkins or Pau Gasol…

  3. Chris Bosh bulking up, a little, for season as Heat center

    Sep 10, 2012, 8:19 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    When the Miami Heat tip off their season opener on Sept. 29 against Boston, don’t be shocked if Chris Bosh starts at the four spot, with Joel Anthony or someone back at the five. But if that game is close at the end, Bosh will be at the five and LeBron James at the four.…

  4. Kris Humphries can laugh at himself, understands why you do, too

    Kris Humphries reality-show marriage to Kim Kardashian was a joke. Not really a funny one. But some people are laughing at the Nets power forward. And that includes Humphries himself, the power forward told the New York Post in a Page 6 interview. “Hey, if you can’t laugh at yourself, you can’t make fun of…

  6. Report: Dominic McGuire signs with Toronto

    Sep 9, 2012, 7:13 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    Dominic McGuire has hung out there as one of the few name free agents left on the list. McGuire was a reserve in Golden State last year, averaging just 17.6 minutes. He averaged just 7.3 points per 36 minutes, but also tagged close to 8 rebounds and 1.4 assists at that rate. Additionally, it was…

  7. Shaq will not be playing in the Mexican League

    Sep 9, 2012, 5:00 PM EST

    2nd Annual Cartoon Network Hall Of Game Awards - Arrivals

    There was a report last week about Shaquille O’Neal possibly playing in the Mexican League. It would have been just a publicity gig, but would have worked out well for both sides. But then, the report would have to be accurate. And Shaq, speaking to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, says it isn’t. Is there any truth…

  9. Marcus Camby was having a hard time with the idea of putting on a Heat jersey

    Sep 9, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Marcus Camby Knicks

    The Heat were locked in a tough free agent bidding war for Ray Allen at the same time they were pushing for Marcus Camby. Allen became their priority, and while that was happening, Camby slipped up to New York and rejoined the Knicks. In an interview with Newsday, Camby admits that the idea of playing…

  10. Dwyane Wade is trying to fix his jumper by tweaking his catch

    Sep 9, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Dwyane Wade is an elite scorer in the NBA, but one drawback has always been his range. He’s flat-out not a good perimeter shooter, and despite the ability to nail some monster shots off the pull-up, that’s just not the strongest part of his game. But he’s trying to improve it after what he felt…

  11. Olajuwon doesn’t think “super teams” are good for NBA

    Sep 9, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Houston Rockets

    We’ve heard this all before. Part of what fueled the owners during the lockout was what happened in Miami — that was well behind the financial motivations for the owners, but it was there. Owners didn’t like players controlling their own destiny to form a “super team.” The argument is that super teams not good…

    Right now, the Madison Square Garden organization — which owns the New York Knicks (along with the Rangers and other assets) — is in flux.

  13. Could Gustavo Ayon ditch Orlando for Spain eventually?

    Sep 9, 2012, 6:55 AM EST

    Amir Johnson,  Gustavo Ayon

    Dwight Howard is gone and Gustavo Ayon is in for Orlando. For now. Ayon isn’t near the same level but he played well as a rookie for the New Orleans Hornets last year, giving them an efficient 5.9 points and 4.9 rebounds a game, with an above-average PER of 16.7. That’s an impressive start. He…

    Sep 8, 2012, 3:48 PM EST

    Isiah Thomas

    That sound you hear is dozens of scribes all across the internet salivating with anticipation at the meat being thrown to the wolves. Isiah Thomas never stopped talking to the Knicks. He was always a member of James Dolan’s counsel, always a trusted advisor. But the New York Post reports of a meeting that has…
