  1. Scottie Pippen says Barack Obama has a “smooth” game

    Nov 7, 2012, 6:22 PM EDT

    President Barack Obama

    David Stern had no fear criticizing Barack Obama’s game, saying he couldn’t go anywhere but left. (Go ahead, make the easy political joke there if you must. But we expect better.) But Scottie Pippen —who played ball with the president on election day Tuesday — was far more complimentary when speaking with the Bulls official…

  2. Winderman: Granger news takes pressure of Rose return

    Nov 7, 2012, 4:01 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose in D Rose Short and Family Story Tee

    The upshot of Wednesday’s prime injury news is that the Bulls’ injury news no longer is nearly as grim. No sooner had the Pacers sent out their release about Danny Granger likely missing three months following a knee procedure, then Tom Thibodeau certainly would have been within his rights to call Derrick Rose and tell…

  3. Mike Brown says expect to see Metta World Peace at shooting guard

    Nov 7, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Four

    Mike Brown has been a man under fire to start the season. His team has underperformed to the tune of a 1-3 start which has led to speculation that his job is in jeopardy. One of the key complaints levied against Brown has been his lack of consistency with his rotations and how he’s managed…

  4. Video: Dirk Nowitzki sings “Born in the USA” and pretty much nails it

    Nov 7, 2012, 2:57 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki is a man of great musical taste. He’s made beautiful music with Steve Nash in Dallas. He hums David Hasselhoff tunes (who doesn’t!?) at the free throw line. He belts out “We are the Champions” when he wins championships. And hey! He probably even knows who Bon Jovi is! Look, Dirk doesn’t need to…

  5. Bradley Beal says “too many people in my ear” with advice

    Nov 7, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    Bradley Beal

    Like pretty much everyone in a Wizards uniform, Bradley Beal has had a tough start to the season. Washington’s No. 3 overall pick is shooting 15.4 percent, is finding it hard to get looks and has generally looked pretty overwhelmed as a starter. Like most rookies do. And Beal is far from the only Wizard…

  6. Report: Pacers contact Mickael Pietrus after Granger news

    Nov 7, 2012, 2:03 PM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    The Pacers may want to add some wing depth to their roster following the news that Danny Granger is out for three months allowing his left knee to heal. Which may mean enter Mickael Pietrus, reports Mike Wells of the Indy Star on twitter. The Pacers have already reached out to the agent of free…

  7. Raptors’ Lowry officially out for Wednesday, day-to-day after

    Nov 7, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry drives between Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace in NBA game in New York

    When Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry crumpled on the floor in pain following rolling his ankle Tuesday night (stepping on the foot of OKC’s Serge Ibaka), him not playing Wednesday against the Mavericks seemed a pretty likely outcome. Officially, the team has said Lowry is out for the game, which means a lot of of…

  8. Anthony Davis, Austin Rivers both out for Hornets Wednesday

    Nov 7, 2012, 1:04 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis, Monty Williams

    Anthony Davis has not yet been cleared by the league’s neurologist following his concussion and will not suit up Wednesday night when the Hornets host the 76ers, according to the team’s official reporter. This was somewhat expected. Don’t expect Monty Williams to say anything about it. Not a word. But to add to his woes…

  9. Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Tyler Zeller out indefinitely

    Nov 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Tyler Zeller, Jordan Crawford

    Short of wearing a helmet, there was pretty much nothing Cleveland Cavaliers rookie center Tyler Zeller could have done to protect against this injury. Zeller has been ruled out indefinitely after Cleveland’s win over the Clippers on Monday night, making it a little more bitter than sweet for the Cavs. Zeller suffered the injury after…

  10. Pacers’ Granger out three months after shot to help knee

    Nov 7, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    It’s time for some Pacers players to step up because the cavalry is not coming over that hill. Not until about the start of February, anyway. The Indiana Pacers announced that their leading scorer of the past three years Danny Granger will be out three months after he “received an injection Tuesday to treat left…

  11. Don’t buy the rumors Mike Brown’s job is in immediate danger

    Nov 7, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers are a patient organization. One of their great strengths — along with insane revenue generation — is they don’t make rash moves, they wait until the odds are in their favor then the act decisively. They don’t panic. They don’t care what you write on an internet message board or what a talk…

  12. Garnett says Sullinger is like Perkins… without the defense

    Nov 7, 2012, 10:38 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Sullinger has ball stripped from his hands by Milwaukee Bucks' Sanders during their NBA basketball game in Boston

    Kevin Garnett really likes Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger. The highest praise for him might be this — on a veteran, contending team Doc Rivers is giving him nearly 19 minutes a game. Kevin Garnett tried to pay him a better compliment — comparing him to Kendrick Perkins on the Celtics official Web site. “He reminds…

  13. Chris Paul told Byron Scott to let Kyrie Irving guard him

    Nov 7, 2012, 10:10 AM EDT

    Dion Waiters, Anderson Varejao,  Chris Paul

    Kyrie Irving played a fantastic game to lead the Cavaliers to a win over the Clippers Monday — 24 points, 10 assists and he had the dagger three at the end (when for some reason DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe both backed off him and gave him a clean look with the game on the…

  14. Adam Morrison not retiring, looking at European options

    Nov 7, 2012, 8:57 AM EDT

    Adam Morrison

    At one point Adam Morrison said this was it: He would make the Trail Blazers roster or he would retire. He didn’t make it, he was one of the final roster cuts in Portland. But he not retiring, his agent told Sportando. Brad Ames of Priority Sports, which represents Morrison, told Sportando this week that…

  15. Lakers Blake chose to swear at son of prominent CEO

    Nov 7, 2012, 8:37 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We told you yesterday the Lakers Steve Blake was fined $25,000 for saying a few magical words to a fan. Now we’re finding out Blake cussed out the son of an influential Lakers season ticket holder, and he now regrets the entire thing. The incident happened late in the Lakers loss to the Clippers last…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Denver gets first win, Orlando first loss

    Nov 7, 2012, 7:48 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Danilo Gallinari

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while you were watching the election results roll in…. Nuggets 109, Pistons 97: Denver got its first win in its home opener with a balanced attack — Andre Iguodala had 17 points (9 in the fourth quarter and…

  17. Three Stars of the Night: Dirty Work Edition

    Nov 7, 2012, 12:19 AM EDT

    Tayshaun Prince, Kenneth Faried, Andre Iguodala

    Ugly players need love, too. For tonight’s Three Stars, we’ve got one of the nastiest looking jumpers you’ll ever see, a player who treats the paint like an island and everywhere else on the floor as molten lava, and a reformed grinder turning himself into a top scorer. Put on that hulking knee brace, grab…

  18. Thunder get right with blowout destruction of Raptors

    Nov 7, 2012, 12:05 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder Russell Westbrook passes inside to a teammate in their NBA basketball game against the Toronto Raptors in Oklahoma City

    If you want the short version of how things went for the Raptors in Oklahoma City on Tuesday, we have that for you here and here. For those that want the excruciating details, feel free to continue. It’s amazing how any the talk of chemistry issues and in-house bickering suddenly disappears when a weaker opponent…

  19. Video: Kevin Durant throws it down on Jonas Valanciunas

    Nov 6, 2012, 11:23 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    This play was basically a microcosm of the Thunder’s blowout of the Raptors. Kevin Durant saw the opportunity, and was aggressive in taking it. Jonas Valanciunas half-heartedly contested, but was late in doing so, before ducking out at the very end to avoid further embarrassment. So, yeah. That was pretty much how things went for…

  20. Kyle Lowry leaves game with ankle injury

    Nov 6, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    The Toronto Raptors got shelled by the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight, 108-88, but one loss in a great big season is likely the last thing on the mind of everyone in the Raptors organization right now. Emerging star Kyle Lowry, who has started the season as hot as anyone north of James Harden, has been…
