  2. Hoping against hope, Maynor wants to stay with Thunder

    Aug 30, 2012, 9:02 PM EDT

    350x-1

    Eric Maynor is a quality backup point guard, a guy that coach Scott Brooks trusts in a way he trusts few others. Maynor played the entire fourth quarter of a playoff game (against Dallas) in 2011. He was injured for the 2012 playoff run, the Thunder filled in with Derek Fisher and they missed Maynor.…

  3. Lakers to retire Shaquille O’Neal’s number 34 on April 2

    Aug 30, 2012, 7:58 PM EDT

    O'NEAL

    Because there were not going to be enough Dwight Howard to Shaquille O’Neal comparisons this season, best to just bring Shaq in and have him there. The Lakers have said for a while they would retire the jersey of Shaquille O’Neal, and now a date has been set for that — April 2, reports Kevin…

  5. Video: Charles Barkley sings karaoke Boyz II Men

    Aug 30, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Tahoe Celebrity Golf

    This is the best version of Boyz II Men’s hit “End of the Road” you are going to hear today. Mostly because I don’t think you’re going to pull out your Boyz II Men CDs and play them later, and you’re not looking them up on Spotify. It is Charles Barkley at his karaoke best. And while…

  6. Video: Blake Griffin says he wants to win every All-Star competition, ever, this year

    Aug 30, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    See, you don’t have to hate Blake Griffin, everyone! He’s likeable! See! “Three-point contest… Rising Stars Challenge— half-time shows…” That got me thinking. How would Blake Griffin win a halftime show? I’m thinking that he’d have to pull off the old spinning plates on his nose, head, and hands trick, while dunking. Maybe he can…

  7. Stephon Marbury sued for $3 million by banks in Virginia

    Aug 30, 2012, 12:56 PM EDT

    China Marbury

    They may love him and erect statues to him in Beijing, but things are different in Virginia. That is where Stephon Marbury, through his business entities, bought some commercial properties for investments. But the bank says they have not been paid on loans for those properties and because Marbury personally guaranteed the loans they are…

  8. Nets exploring adding Eddy Curry, Josh Childress among others

    Aug 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Eddy Curry poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    At this point, you have to wonder if the Nets will be sad when they have no more roster spots to spend money on. Yahoo Sports reports that the Nets are considering several options for their final two available roster spots including… Eddy Curry. The Nets could use Curry. They’re not particularly loaded down low…

  9. Don Nelson says he got small ball idea from Red Auerbach

    Aug 30, 2012, 11:41 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Don Nelson will enter the Basketball Hall of Fame as the coach who has won more games than anyone else in NBA history. He will go in as an innovator, a team builder, a guy who colored outside the lines and that worked for him. One of the things Nelson liked to do was play…

  10. A quick look at your top free agents for 2013 (as of now)

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:50 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    After a summer of rebuilding and trying to put a team together, there are a few teams out there that are clearly looking at next summer as the chance to remake their lineup. Yes, we’re looking at you, Dallas. But you are not alone. So, who are next summer’s big potential free agents? Here is…

  11. The Inbounds: Can Keith Smart save the Kings’ soul?

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Russell Westbrook

    My favorite B-movie of all time is “Killer Clowns from Outer Space.” It is as terrible and ridiculous as the title suggests, an outright cavalcade of campy horror bathed in absurdist light. To try and watch it is to recognize that sometimes, there are things which should not be made, and yet you will watch…

  12. The Inbounds: It’s time for NBA teams to embrace the D-League future

    Aug 30, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Image (1) D-league-thumb-250x256-12043.gif for post 2083

    The 2012-2013 NBA D-League schedule will be announced Thursday to little fanfare and by little fanfare I mean no attention whatsoever. It will be a footnote passed along at the end of columns, random bits tweeted here and there. It will not drive traffic, move the needle, or sell tickets, outside of the occasionally rabid…

  13. Video: Anthony Davis, others talk Rookie Transition Program

    Aug 29, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets Introduce Anthony Davis, Austin Rivers - Press Conference

    Recently in New Jersey was the Rookie Transition Program — where for a few days just drafted NBA rookies sit in a classroom and learn what NBA life will be like off the court. They are warned of the friends and family who will come with hands out for money. Of the women who will be…

  14. Larry Bird to get statue at alma mater, will tower over Magic

    Aug 29, 2012, 8:59 PM EDT

    NCAA Championship Game: Michigan State Spartans v North Carolina Tar Heels

    Even though the rivalry is more than 20 years old, even though Larry Bird and Ervin Johnson are friends — Bird and the “Magic” persona slightly less so — I love that Bird vs. Magic is still a dividing line. At Indiana State, Larry Bird’s alma mater, where he took the school to its only…

  15. Donte Greene signing with Nets on hold due to ankle surgery

    Aug 29, 2012, 7:03 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    That whole Donte Greene has reached a deal with the Nets thing has fallen apart. And when a player’s agent is being vague, it’s never a good sign. Which brings us to this tweet from Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports: Greene’s expected signing with Nets this week now on hold due to pending surgery on…

  16. Video: Watch Dwight Howard block a kid’s shots in pop-a-shot

    Aug 29, 2012, 5:59 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    First, my favorite part of this video is that the pop-a-shot game in China has chain-link metal nets like you would see on an outdoor, black top court. I love that sound. Aside that, this Dwight Howard is doing his Dwight Howard clowning around thing. He’s hamming it up on his tour of China where…

  17. Kris Humphries sued by woman claiming he gave her STD. Eww.

    Aug 29, 2012, 4:52 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New Jersey Nets

    Oh, Kris. You really need to work on staying off of TMZ’s front page. But alas, Kris Humphries — the short-lived Mr. Kardashian — is bing sued by a woman in Los Angeles who claims the Brooklyn power forward gave her an STD. Of course, TMZ with the scoop. Kris Humphries has just been sued…

  18. Man behind Seattle arena plan buys up all the land he needs

    Aug 29, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Seattle SuperSonics v Denver Nuggets

    We are a long way from seeing an arena and NBA team in Seattle. Yet if I were a Sacramento Kings fan worried about losing my team I’d be far more worried about what is happening in Seattle than the long-shot possibility in Virginia Beach. PBT reported yesterday that the Maloofs already turned down an…

  19. Picture of the Day: Marbury with his statue in Beijing

    Aug 29, 2012, 3:29 PM EDT

    Marbury statue

    Remember early last year, when Knicks fans were worried about when J.R. Smith could get out of his China contract and help the Knicks in the NBA playoffs, but everyone had to wait for his team to be eliminated from the playoffs? Well, Stephon Marbury and his Beijing Ducks were never eliminated — they won…

  20. Report: Minnesota shopping guard to free up money for big

    Aug 29, 2012, 3:12 PM EDT

    Ridnour_Wolves

    We were talking with you earlier today about how the Minnesota Timberwolves want to sign one more big man, but they are limited. They would like to bring back Anthony Tolliver but he wants more than the veteran minimum. And Minnesota can’t offer more than that right now. But they are looking into ways to…
