  1. Kobe doesn’t get why Philly paid Kwame Brown so much

    Oct 12, 2012, 1:03 PM EDT

    Kwame-Brown

    This summer, desperate for a center and before they traded for Andrew Bynum, the Philadelphia 76ers reached a deal with Kwame Brown. He makes $2.8 million this year, $2.9 next season if Brown picks up his player option. Which he will. So Kwame Brown will pocket just shy of $6 million. A lot of people…

  2. Seattle NBA arena moves forward but Mariners still oppose

    Oct 12, 2012, 12:49 PM EDT

    Seattle

    The Seattle Mariners do not come off smelling good in this situation. Even when their representatives try to explain themselves. Plans for a new arena in Seattle continue to move forward with both the city and county councils expected to approve a Memorandum of Understanding with the developer next Monday. Developer Chris Hansen has taken…

  3. World Peace thinks Nash should have his own Vegas show. With strippers.

    Oct 12, 2012, 11:45 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    More than one person has said Steve Nash is a magician with the basketball. Metta World Peace is playing with him right now, and the guy that never really grasped the triangle offense is amazed by what Nash does with the offense. To the point of confusion. He jokes he doesn’t get back on defense…

  4. Video: Stoudemire, Granger, Davis on “The Mindy Project”

    Oct 12, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Mindy-Kaling-of-FOXs-The-Mindy-Project

    “The Mindy Project” — it’s not just that show on after “New Girl.” It stars that girl from “The Office.” Yea, Mindy Kaling, that’s her. This week’s episode featured NBA players Amar’e Stoudemire, Baron Davis and Danny Granger hanging out in a club. You need to really skip ahead to the 3:00 mark to get to…

  5. Chris Kaman is going to bond with Nowitzki through hunting

    Oct 12, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Chris Kamon

    Hunting is one of those things you kind of grow up doing or you don’t, it’s not really something people pickup as an adult. Chris Kaman is a long-time avid hunter who likes big guns and big game. Dirk Nowitzki… more of a city guy. But he wants to bond with his big center so…

  6. Smush Parker says he stopped passing Kobe Bryant the ball

    Oct 12, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant reverted to one of his favorite past times the other day, smacking around Smush Parker like his own personal piñata. He said Smush shouldn’t have been in the NBA but the Lakers were cheap and “let him walk on.” Which is how it felt. But Smush — playing in China the past couple…

  7. NBA season preview: Portland Trail Blazers

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:42 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers

    Last season: Nothing will push you toward rebuilding like disappointment, and their 28-38 record was that. This was a 48 win team a couple seasons ago, but last season a team that should be playing fast and pressuring teams was average in pace and threatening nobody. Point guard Raymond Felton took the blame from fans…

  8. Helping pick your NBA fantasy team: Sleepers and busts

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat Media Day

    We don’t talk a lot of fantasy hoops here at PBT, but we want to help out. And we know you’re going to spend half your day at work today researching your fantasy teams anyway, so we should at least lend a hand. First, you should go to Rotoworld and check out their in-depth draft…

  9. DeMarcus Cousins is shooting threes (and his coach isn’t angry)

    Oct 12, 2012, 1:26 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Russell Westbrook

    This is not an Andrew Bynum situation. Yes, Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is regularly practicing three pointers this training camp and may be taking more in games — he took and made one in the team’s preseason game against the Suns. But he has not gone rogue, Cousins told the Sacramento Bee. “Coach wants me…

  10. Russell Westbrook joins Nike’s Jordan Brand

    Oct 12, 2012, 12:27 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook

    Dwyane Wade is out, he’s jumped from the Jordan brand to Chinese shoe company Li-Ning. So in jumps Russell Westbrook. Westbrook has joined the Jordan brand, the company announced. “We are very excited to welcome Russell to the Jordan family,” said Michael Jordan in a released statement. “Russell’s style, both on and off the court,…

  11. Dwight Howard said his leg felt “dead” from nerve damage

    Oct 11, 2012, 11:42 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard poses for photos during NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

    In his first seven seasons in the NBA, Dwight Howard never missed more than four games in a campaign. He’s joked about switching from DC to Marvel, changing his nickname from Superman to Iron Man. (I’m not sure Tony Starks is the guy you want to model your life after, but that’s another debate.) Up…

  12. Iguodala was frustrated in Philly, which somehow is news

    Oct 11, 2012, 10:44 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Somehow, the fact Andre Iguodala was never quite comfortable or happy in Philadelphia, especially the last couple years, has become a story. I’m not sure how this is news to anybody, but here we are. Iguodala has a unique set of skills but he was always mismatched in the Sixers offense, and he was never…

  13. Avery Bradley looks to return before Christmas Day

    Oct 11, 2012, 7:04 PM EDT

    Avery Bradley

    Avery Bradley is with the Celtics, cleared to do workouts. He is doing his conditioning. Which is a long way from contact or playing in games, but after two shoulder surgeries — one on each — that is to be expected. Still Doc Rivers is talking about having the Celtics starting two guard (unless Courtney…

  14. NBA to build sports/entertainment complex in Beijing

    Oct 11, 2012, 6:24 PM EDT

    Beijing skyline

    The NBA is serious about expanding into the Chinese market. That is more than just a couple preseason games — the Heat beat the Clippers in Beijing early Thursday and they meet again this weekend in Shanghai — and having players go over there on shoe company sponsored tours. They have an official NBA office…

  15. Spanish players trash hotel rooms after Olympic loss to USA

    Oct 11, 2012, 5:12 PM EDT

    Spain London Olympics Gasol

    For the second Olympics in a row, Spain made it to the gold medal game last July in London only to come up short. That’s frustrating. So the Spanish team went The Who circa 1967 and took out their frustrations by thrashing their hotel rooms. That’s the report, via the New York Daily News. Manager…

  16. NBA Preview: Utah Jazz

    Oct 11, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Derrick Favors, Al Jefferson

    Last season: The Utah Jazz were what they have always seemed to be — solid. They moved on from the Deron Williams era to a team that tried to dominate with its front line of Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, while hoping young guys like Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors would develop. The result was…

  17. No timeline for Nene’s return to Washington lineup

    Oct 11, 2012, 3:24 PM EDT

    Nene Hilario

    The Wizards are not the same team without Nene on the court — he can protect the rim on defense, score from the low post on offense and essentially give them a quality presence in the paint. But it may be a while before they have that. Nene had been on the “expect him to…

  18. Popovich’s wife doesn’t like how he treats courtside reporters

    Oct 11, 2012, 2:46 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich

    It’s one of my favorite parts of the Spurs nationally televised games — some poor sideline reporter like Craig Sager has to try and interview Gregg Popovich between quarters. And Popovich wants nothing to do with it. He is condescending and annoyed. Journalists in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, but I do love watching those…

  19. Brandon Roy is back on the court. That is a good thing.

    Oct 11, 2012, 2:27 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    If you want, go ahead and break down how Brandon Roy played in his first game back as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves — he was rusty at the start but in the third quarter showed flashes of his old self That’s not what was important — the fact he was back on the…

  20. Nuggets have exclusive scrimmage for students in Aurora, near shooting

    Oct 11, 2012, 1:56 PM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari, JaVale McGee, Kenneth Faried, Ty Lawson, Andre Iguodala

    You certainly remember one of the most disturbing stories of the summer, when a gunman opened fire in a crowded movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver, killing a dozen people and injuring 60 more. One of the people killed were students at Gateway High School in Aurora and about 60 of the school’s…
