  1. Walter Davis auctions off 1976 basketball gold medal

    Aug 23, 2012, 6:21 PM EDT

    1976 Montreal gold medal

    You might not remember Walter Davis, but he was a stud player. He was a six time All-Star, 1978 Rookie of the Year, he averated 18.9 points per game over the course of his career, with a shooting percentage of 51.1. He to this day is the Suns all-time leading scorer. And he won a…

  2. Nets worth 60% more in Brooklyn, may turn profit this season

    Aug 23, 2012, 5:50 PM EDT

    Russians Go To The Polls In Presidential Election

    This is why Nets ownership has worked to make a move to Brooklyn — it’s all about the dollars. The Nets are worth 60 percent more now than they were last season, according to a sports economist. And they may well turn a profit this year, too. That according to the New York Post. As…

  3. Wade admits he wore Bulls jersey, considered Chicago over Miami

    Aug 23, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    NBA basketball player Wade attends a showing of the Richard Chai Spring/Summer 2012 collection during New York Fashion Week

    For a lot of people, it never seemed like Dwyane Wade would leave the Miami Heat two summers ago. Sure, he was a free agent coveted by teams — and he met with the Chicago Bulls — but was more about recruiting LeBron James and Chris Bosh to join him in South Beach rather than…

  4. Ibaka unhappy with Spanish team, may skip Rio Olympics

    Aug 23, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Spanish centre Serge Ibaka catches the b

    Serge Ibaka looked pretty good in the gold medal game against the United States — he had 12 points and 9 rebounds, and he played 22 minutes. But apparently the minutes were an issue for Ibaka through the Olympics — he wanted more but found his role shrinking. And he is so ticked he may…

  5. Video: John Wall kills it at the Drew League

    Aug 23, 2012, 3:24 PM EDT

    goodman John Wall

    Last summer, John Wall was the king of the Summer League pro-am games. Well, him and Kevin Durant. But Durant went on to nearly be king of the NBA regular season, as he had a monster year that cemented his status as the best pure scorer in the game today. Wall… he went on to…

  6. Ridiculous report of Kings to Virginia Beach out there

    Aug 23, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    Virginia_Beach_waterfront

    The Sacramento Kings are not moving to Virginia Beach. We’ll start there then go to the reports that started the whole Internet buzz on Thursday. Next week a group of business leaders in the Virginia City area will make a pitch to their City Council about starting the process to build a new arena in…

  7. Video: Nuggets prove Comic-Con not best place for basketball interviews

    Aug 23, 2012, 12:52 PM EDT

    General Atmosphere - Day 4 - Comic-Con International 2012

    If you’re looking to go an entire weekend speaking Klingon, Comic-Con in San Diego is the place to go. If you’re looking for NBA knowledge… not so much. But in their best Triumph the Comic Dog spirit, the Nuggets sent their people to Comic-Con to make fun of the attendees. Which is pretty much shooting…

  8. Byron Scott is pretty pumped about C.J. Miles on Cavaliers

    Aug 23, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz forward C.J. Miles reacts as Miami Heat forwards Udonis Haslem, left, and LeBron James walk off the court at the end of the second half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    We’re bringing you a few Cleveland Cavaliers notes… because it’s August and we need things to write about. After this we’ll wait until Kyrie Irving does something interesting again. Cavaliers coach Byron Scott was asked about the acquisition of C.J. Miles and apparently the two have a mutual admiration society going on. Miles said he…

  9. Kevin Durant says Olympic experience made him better

    Aug 23, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    US forward Kevin Durant celebrates after

    It’s been fun watching the spin on the Olympics and having star NBA players in them. Team owners go in saying “we don’t want our players to risk injury or wear themselves down.” Then somebody looks up the numbers and the other side spins that after the Olympics players often have better years, which is…

  10. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  11. The Inbounds: The unfathomable jump Jeff Green needs

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Jeff Green

    I’ve pretty much always been on the side that thinks Jeff Green can develop into a capable NBA player. In Oklahoma City, he was “the other guy” drafted with Durant, part of the central core. His role was nebulous, falling into that generic “forward” category. It took a while for the debate to start over…

  12. Clippers not expecting Chauncey Billups back until November

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups says he wants to be ready for the start of the season. But the Clippers are not really counting on the 36-year-old bouncing back from an Achilles injury that fast. In a report discussing how the Clippers will start this season trying to play catch up due to injury, Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles…

  13. Stephen Jackson would like to finish his career as a Spur

    Aug 23, 2012, 9:13 AM EDT

    stephen-jackson-spurs

    Stephen Jackson has not had what one would call a settled NBA career — a dozen years, seven NBA cities. Three and a half seasons in Golden State is the longest he has spent with any one team. At age 34 he is entering his second season on his second stint with the San Antonio…

  14. Martell Webster works out for, could end up with Wizards

    Aug 23, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Martell Webster, Rick Adelman

    Trevor Ariza will be the starting swingman for the Washington Wizards, but the team is looking at adding some depth there. Apparently. The Wizards worked out free agent Martell Webster and he could sign with them, reports Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Or, they could add one of the other veterans they are considering.…

  15. Deal with local investors could keep Grizzlies in Memphis for 15 years

    Robert-Pera_thumb

    There are rumors that he is not doing well financially and that the sale could be in trouble, but young tech industry wiz kid Robert Pera, 34, is pushing ahead with efforts to buy the Memphis Grizzlies. And they will stay the Memphis Grizzlies under a new deal with local investors that Pera has reached,…

  16. Jordan, Carmelo do some fundraising with President Obama

    Aug 22, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    US-VOTE-2012-DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN

    Just like you and I, the people around the NBA care who is president. And while you can’t draw hard and fast lines, a quick look at who donated to whom shows players pretty much lean Democratic and front office/ownership leans Republican. Democrat Barack Obama used some of that player star power for a series…

  17. Video: Anthony Davis dunks on Skip Bayless (well, a poster of him)

    Aug 22, 2012, 8:49 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Draft

    This is not Anthony Davis‘ best dunk ever. But a lot of people have wanted to dunk on — and a whole lot more — with ESPN television personality Skip Bayless. So we thought we’d bring you Davis dunking on and running over a Bayless cardboard cutout. Because I live in a glass house, I…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Does Kyle Singler look like Conan O’Brien to you, too? • The always…

  19. Blatche says he is willing to play anywhere — even D-League

    Aug 22, 2012, 6:34 PM EDT

    DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors shot is blocked by Washington Wizards' Blatche during their NBA game in Washington

    Andray Blatche — the talented but mercurial big man recently amnestied by the Washington Wizards — is one of those NBA players standing on the sidelines right now waiting for someone to point at him and say “get in the game.” There have been nibbles on the line — how serious depends upon who you…

  20. Mike Brown almost injured himself when he heard about Howard trade

    Aug 22, 2012, 5:16 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Mike Brown is on the hot seat. With Lakers fans there are really not shades of grey, no “they had a good team and if they had just stayed healthy/had another player/had fair refs they would have won a title.” You win or you don’t. Black or white. The Lakers didn’t win a ring last…
