    Sep 25, 2012, 1:33 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 12 - Basketball

    It was one of the most talked about moments of the Olympic basketball tournament — Nicolas Batum (he of the huge new contract with the Trail Blazers) and his French teammates needed to foul Spain, down 6 with 24 seconds left. Batum did foul Juan Carlos Navarro by punching him in the place a man…

    stephen-jackson-spurs

    Stephen Jackson is must watch radio. He was on The Breakfast Club on New York’s Power 105.1 and was just very Stephen Jackson — he held nothing back. When asked about off-season workouts he said he doesn’t do them — “I ain’t worked out in my whole career.” He called the other NBA baller/rappers “whack” and went…

  4. Winderman: Time for shorter NBA training camps

    Sep 25, 2012, 12:36 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    The list of players who will miss the start of training camp is significant, everyone from Chris Paul to Al Harrington to possibly Dwyane Wade. Each, though, could be back for the start of the regular season. Which either means the offseason is too short or camp is too long. Yet here we are, on…

  5. Chris Paul says he will play in preseason, be ready Oct. 31

    Sep 25, 2012, 11:41 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Chris Paul says he and his surgically-repaired thumb are going be ready to go when the Clippers tip off the season on Halloween night against he Memphis Grizzlies.

  6. Penny Marshall is working on a Dennis Rodman documentary

    Sep 25, 2012, 11:04 AM EDT

    Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony - Red Carpet

    Well, this should be interesting. A dozen years removed from the NBA, Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman remains a compelling character… well, for the same reason we watched Nicholas Cage in “Leaving Las Vegas.” The same reason half of Bravo’s shows exist. Because self-destruction can be entertaining so long as it is someone else. Now…

  7. Report: Rasheed Wallace gets to decide if he stays with Knicks

    Sep 25, 2012, 10:24 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The decision on if the New York Knicks will keep Rasheed Wallace falls to… Rasheed Wallace? Yup, he gets to decide his own fate according to Marc Berman of the New York Post (and it was confirmed by Sheed’s agent). The Knicks are willing to take a gamble on 6-foot-11 power forward Rasheed Wallace, who…

  8. Sixers, Bynum not talking extension. Which is to be expected.

    Sep 25, 2012, 9:21 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Andrew Bynum is not going to sign an extension with the Philadelphia 76ers. Will. Not. Happen. Not sure how this keeps being news and being reported as such, or why newly minted Sixers GM Tony DiLeo is being asked about it, but we’ll walk everyone through it one more time. Don’t get me wrong, Bynum…

  9. Jose Calderon denies rumors he is unhappy, wants trade

    Sep 25, 2012, 8:59 AM EDT

    Jose Calderon

    Jose Calderon played well for Toronto last season. A lot of people didn’t notice because, well, he plays for Toronto and they weren’t very good. But Calderon was — 10.5 points a game, 8.8 assists and he had a PER of 16.7. So, the Raptors went out and got Kyle Lowry in the offseason to…

  10. Warriors, Curry table extension talks. But he’s still optimistic.

    Sep 25, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    stephen curry

    The world needs optimists. Stephen Curry and his agent are optimists. They believe that even though the Warriors and Curry have tabled talks of a contract extension, once team officials seem him playing in the preseason things will come off the table and a deal will get done. That’s what they told Matt Steinmetz of…

  11. Seattle City Council gives key approval for new arena

    Sep 25, 2012, 1:41 AM EDT

    Seattle

    It was not a surprise — all the groundwork had already been done, previous approvals given at other levels of government — but still it has to feel good for those that want to see the NBA back in Seattle. Tuesday night the Seattle City Council voted 6-2 to approve developers Chris Hansen’s plan for…

  12. Rivers says expect Avery Bradley to return in December

    Sep 25, 2012, 12:09 AM EDT

    Avery Bradley, Nolan Smith

    At first the reports were Avery Bradley would be back during training camp. Then there were suggestions he could miss even the start of the season following shoulder surgery at the end of last season. Now Celtics fans, think of him as a Christmas present. Doc Rivers spoke with the always fantastic Jackie McMullan for…

  13. Lakers Blake out three weeks after stepping on parking lot spike

    Sep 24, 2012, 10:18 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    Let me just say first: Ouch! Lakers backup guard Steve Blake will be out three weeks after puncturing his left foot stepping on those spike strips used to keep cars from exiting through the entrance of a parking lot. What I really can’t wait to find out is exactly how this happened. How exactly do…

  14. Rajon Rondo taking on bigger leadership role with Celtics

    Sep 24, 2012, 8:56 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers gestures to Rajon Rondo in the second quarter as the Celtics play the Miami Heat during Game 5 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Miami, Florida

    In what may be the 489,472nd article about how the Celtics are moving on from Ray Allen — they’ll be fine, we get it — we learned something interesting about who is taking on a leadership role with the Celtics. It comes from an interview with Doc Rivers at ESPNBoston.com. “Rondo has been great, just…

  15. In news to nobody, Adelman wanted Darko off the Wolves

    Sep 24, 2012, 8:24 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Twin City Business Magazine is a fine publication, I have no doubt. (I’m admittedly not a regular reader, but as a California-based basketball writer I’m not exactly the target audience.) Twin City Business Magazine is usually not the first place you go looking for NBA news. But they had some today, part of a long…

  16. James Worthy says Heat still have advantage over Lakers

    Sep 24, 2012, 7:04 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Kevin Durant

    There is a segment of the Lakers nation out there that seems think they have Oklahoma City in the bag. Not a problem. Even though the Thunder took the Lakers out in five games last year (don’t get me started on the L.A. convinced they should have won that series). The Lakers have upgraded and…

  17. The Inbounds: The Chicago Bulls can defy expectations again. Is that a good thing?

    Sep 24, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Ronnie Brewer, Joakim Noah

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. The Bulls were supposed to be a middle-seed in 2011, maybe a 4 or a 5 seed. They took the…

  18. Tolliver, Pietrus both say they are close to contracts

    Sep 24, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Anthony Tolliver

    Time is its own kind of pressure. And some of the unsigned NBA veterans out there are really starting to feel it. They are feeling the pressure to make a decision. Anthony Tolliver and Mickael Pietrus are two of those guys, and both say they are close to a decision. With Lou Amundson having agreed…

  19. NBA Season Preview: Chicago Bulls

    Sep 24, 2012, 5:07 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Ronnie Brewer, Joakim Noah

    Last season: Once again the Bulls outworked everybody in the regular season — while 29 teams treat games like the regular season, the Bulls grind every night and they were a league best 50-16 because of it. And that was with Derrick Rose missing 27 games. They were the top seed in the East and…

  20. Report: Josh Howard gets camp invite with 76ers

    Sep 24, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Jazz forward Howard tries to get position on Spurs forward Leonard during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    UPDATE 4:21 pm: New GM Tony Dileo confirmed that Howard is getting both a workout this week and an invite to training camp when it begins next week, reports CSNPhilly.com. Again, this is a “make good” contract and he’s going to have to earn his way on to the team, but that might well happen.…
