  1. Video: Trailer for new new James Worthy documentary

    Sep 22, 2011, 8:27 PM EDT

    James%20Worthy

    If James Worthy were on just about any other team in NBA history, he would be looked back on as one of the, if not the, greatest player in the franchise’s history. But he ended up on the Showtime Lakers, where he was sometimes option No. 3. But watch these highlights and remember how special…

  2. NBA to announce postponement of camps, preseason Friday

    Sep 22, 2011, 6:30 PM EDT

    NHL Season Cancelled

    Tomorrow could be black Friday for the NBA. After a lengthy but apparently fruitless negotiating session on Thursday the NBA is set to announce the postponement of training camps and cancellation of the first two weeks of preseason games on Friday. According to a Yahoo report there is going to be a conference call with owners…

  3. Metta World Peace donates $285,000 to mental health charities

    Sep 22, 2011, 6:04 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Victory Parade

    From Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Times: Metta took some steps to bring World Peace on Wednesday by donating $285,000 to mental health charities across America. He has pledged to give away more than $500,000 that he raised by raffling off his 2010 Lakers championship ring. At the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live, before…

  4. Winderman: NBA’s post-lockout startup time can be quick

    Sep 22, 2011, 6:03 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    Based on the slow-go turn in lockout negotiations, it is safe to say that we’re officially on the clock, a backwards timetable to the earliest-possible start to the NBA season. Those involved in the process are virtually unanimous in a two-week timetable being necessary for agreement-into-final draft and then a union vote. Conversations with others…

  5. What the Hornets should do if the lockout ends

    Sep 22, 2011, 5:49 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant

    It’s a crucial year for the Hornets. Chris Paul can opt out of his contract with New Orleans after this season, and it goes without saying that the franchise would be devastated if Paul left the team. Here are a few ways that the Hornets can build on their spirited first-round performance against the Lakers…

  6. Shane Battier may be looking for more money than the Grizzlies are willing to spend

    Sep 22, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    Shane Battier isn’t quite the defensive force he once was; even the plus-minus data that illustrated his worth to teams like the Houston Rockets — not to mention made him the subject of Michael Lewis’ renowned piece for The New York Times – has turned on him of late, leaving Battier as merely a competent defender…

  7. Thursday labor talks end with little progress. Again.

    Sep 22, 2011, 4:10 PM EDT

    David Stern, Adam Silver

    It’s starting to feel a little like “Groundhog Day” around here. No matter what we expect, we keep ending up back in the same place. Again the NBA and its players union met on Thursday, again for more than five hours, and again the meeting ended with little talk of progress. There are no new…

  8. Heat uniquely positioned to take advantage of possible amnesty clause

    Sep 22, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    In addition to the free agent bonanza that will take place following the conclusion of the lockout, there is now a distinct possibility that an amnesty clause — akin to the 2005 Allan Houston Rule — will release even more players back onto the open market. For those unfamiliar, such an exception would allow teams…

  9. Marcus Camby arrested with small amount of marijuana

    Sep 22, 2011, 2:43 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    If you want, turn the comments into a debate about whether or not this should even be illegal. It’s a valid debate (and I’d fall on the side of saying it shouldn’t be, except the part where he is operating a car), but it’s moot here. The fact is it is illegal right now. Trail…

  10. Derrick Favors trying to put on some bulk this summer

    Sep 22, 2011, 1:51 PM EDT

    Image (1) Favors_rookie-thumb-250x250-18463.jpg for post 4183

    Watching Derrick Favors last season was watching a guy who has a high ceiling in the NBA, but wondering if he would ever reach it. He’s got the size and speed to be special, but he needed to get stronger and he needed to develop a midrange shot he can trust, upgrade his passing skills…

  11. NBA players don’t realize what awaits them in China

    Sep 22, 2011, 1:17 PM EDT

    marbury_china

    Hey, locked out NBA players. How would you feel about playing in a league where the players have no power, practices go on for five or six hours on off days, there are bus rides that would make a minor league baseball player wince, and forget about post-game food spreads, or even a good college…

  12. Jason Terry wants to make sure Mavs bring Stevenson back

    Sep 22, 2011, 12:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The conventional wisdom has been that when looking at which of the Dallas Mavericks six free agents the team bring back for next season, Tyson Chandler is on the top of the list (as he should be). DeShawn Stevenson was near the bottom. But that’s not the way Jason Terry sees it. Terry, Dallas’ spark…

  13. Impact series Day 7: Check out the hops on Iman Shumpert

    Sep 22, 2011, 12:14 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert

    Knicks fans are going to love Iman Shumpert. If you want to know why, just watch the video below — those are some serious hops. He’s looked like a stud at the Impact Competitive Training Series (the  “lockout league”) in Vegas. That, however, is a long way from fitting in and playing well in NBA…

  14. Rashard Lewis has a lot to lose but is willing to sacrifice

    Sep 22, 2011, 11:56 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 3

    Rashard Lewis is the guy who gets pointed at when people start talking about the lockout and the bad contracts out there — next season the Wizards stretch four will be the second highest paid player in the NBA (behind Kobe Bryant). Of course, like he said, what did you expect him to do, say…

  15. Report: NBA agents will try to kill deal not to their liking

    Sep 22, 2011, 11:02 AM EDT

    NBA: NOV 16 Pistons v Lakers

    You know what will really drag this lockout out and risk a full NBA season? Two things, one being owners fighting amongst themselves and not agreeing to a deal because of it, something we may already have seen some of (although it was denied later). The other is players fighting amongst themselves and against the…

  16. Report: Kobe, agent to talk with Italian team about new offer

    Sep 22, 2011, 10:41 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    Kobe Bryant still has an offer on the table from Italian squad Virtus Bologna — one modified from the original offer to allow for a range of options — and he and his agent will have a conference call with the team to discuss it, according to various reports out of Europe. That is all…

  17. Allen Iverson will not play in Melo vs. Philly Sunday

    Sep 22, 2011, 10:17 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    UPDATE 10:17 am: Allen Iverson’s longtime friend and manager shot down the idea that Iverson will play in the game, according to CSNPhilly.com: Gary Moore, Iverson’s longtime friend and manager, confirmed that the now 36-year-old Answer will not participate. Which is a little sad, these free-flowing exhibitions are a good fit for Iverson’s game, and…

  18. Bismack Biyombo swears he will be at Bobcats camp

    Sep 22, 2011, 8:40 AM EDT

    Bismack Biyombo

    Here is all we know: Bismack Biyombo has amazing athleticism and he is raw like sushi. That always leads guys to be draft night favorites of fans, guys that those same fans will not be so fond of in three years. Oh, and we know he has buyout issues with Fuenlabrada, the Spanish team where he…

  19. Report: Owners plan amnesty clauses in new CBA

    Sep 22, 2011, 8:04 AM EDT

    padlockap

    Back in 2005, when the last NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement was put in place — teams could waive one player and not have to pay the luxury tax on that player’s salary. (The player still got the money on his contract and the teams did not get salary cap relief.) Everyone called it the Allen…

  20. Leadership of NBA owners, players union to meet Thursday

    Sep 21, 2011, 10:29 PM EDT

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    The good news is the owners and players are back in the same room talking again. On Thursday that will include the leadership of both sides — Commissioner David Stern and Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver for the owners, union president Derek Fisher and union Director Billy Hunter. Some attorneys and economists from both sides will…
