  1. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    Oct 28, 2013, 1:16 PM EST

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  2. Report: Andrew Bogut, Warriors agree to three year, $43 million extension

    Oct 25, 2013, 7:41 PM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    It comes down to this: In the playoffs last year, the Golden State Warriors’ defense was 7.8 points per 100 possessions better when Andrew Bogut was on the court. Stephen Curry is the new star and Andre Iguodala was brought in to be the glue guy and defend the wings, but if the Warriors are…

  3. PBT Extra: Pacific Division Preview

    Oct 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    The Pacific Division is fascinating this season. It has a genuine contender (Clippers, I’m higher on them than most), a team trying to get to that level (Warriors), a team that thinks it is better than it is (Lakers), a rebuilding team with one key piece (Kings) and a team all in for the lottery…

  4. Young, Iguodala with highlight dunks in Warriors win over Lakers (VIDEO)

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:48 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers' Young reacts after scoring against Golden State Warriors during their NBA Global Games in Shanghai

    Everyone could use a Swaggy P highlight before lunch. Golden State routed the Los Angeles Lakers 115-89 in Shanghai, China, early in the morning here (it was a 4:30 a.m. start in the cities where those teams play). Klay Thompson dropped 25 points to lead a Warriors team that shot 51.1 percent overall and hit…

  5. Report: Warriors, Bogut talking contract extension

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season in the playoffs the Warriors defense was 7.8 points per 100 possessions better when Bogut was on the court and was the anchor in the paint. Look at it this way: When Bogut was on the court the Warriors defense was close to the Bulls regular season defensive numbers, when he sat they…

  6. D’Antoni on Kobe playing opening night: “No. I don’t think so.”

    Oct 15, 2013, 12:07 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant gestures to his teammates before their game against the Golden State Warriors at the NBA Global Games in Beijing

    It always seemed pretty much impossible that Kobe Bryant would be back from his ruptured Achilles tendon in April in time for the NBA’s opening night. But because he’s Kobe Bryant we all looked at it differently — this guy played with a broken finger on his shooting hand and just adjusted his shot to…

  7. Andrew Bogut, Xavier Henry highlights from Lakers/Warriors in Beijing (VIDEO)

    Oct 15, 2013, 10:07 AM EST

    Stephen Curry

    You could have NBA basketball for breakfast Tuesday. The Golden State Warriors beat the Los Angeles Lakers 101-95 in a game played in Beijing, one that started at 7:30 am Eastern. There were a few highlights so we’re bringing them to you — Xavier Henry with the half-court alley-oop finish from Steve Blake, and Andrew Bogut…

  8. Andrew Bogut cautious about believing the hype surrounding Warriors

    Oct 12, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    The Warriors overachieved last year by reaching the second round of the playoffs, and did so without a full complement of healthy players. The expectations are even higher entering this season, with the addition of Andre Iguodala in free agency and most of the key pieces anticipated to be 100 percent by the time the…

  9. Harrison Barnes likely to miss Warriors’ next two preseason games in China due to foot injury

    Oct 12, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    barnes white sleeved

    Harrison Barnes started 81 games as a rookie for the Warriors last season, and his explosiveness and athleticism on both ends of the floor were among the reasons the team exceeded expectations by getting to the second round of the playoffs. Health has been an ongoing concern in Golden State in recent years, so with…

  10. Harrison Barnes, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala competing for two starting spots

    Oct 10, 2013, 10:55 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    Ever since the Warriors signed Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes has been pegged as Golden State’s sixth man. To his credit, Barnes said he’d be fine with that role. Barnes had an up-and-down rookie year, but he broke out in the playoffs by averaging 16.1 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. That’s the type of performance…

  11. Lakers’ Xavier Henry’s half court buzzer beater (VIDEO)

    Oct 6, 2013, 10:59 AM EST

    Xavier Henry, Dewayne Dedmon

    Kobe Bryant is in Germany (he was going to get around to telling Mike D’Antoni he was going but it slipped his mind). Pau Gasol and Steve Nash were watching in suits. So the Lakers had to turn to some of the guys fighting to make the team/get minutes to step up against Golden State…

  12. Danny Ainge: Not worth tanking for Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 4, 2013, 1:25 PM EST

    0515_wiggins_0

    Every active No. 1 pick, with the exception of Tim Duncan, who has been in the NBA at least six seasons – Greg Oden, Andrea Bargnani, Andrew Bogut, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kwame Brown, Kenyon Martin and Elton Brand –  has changed teams by age 28. It’s an era where teams must kowtow to top…

  13. Report: Stephen Curry leaving Nike for Under Armour endorsement deal

    Sep 27, 2013, 12:43 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    Under Armour has been trying to break bigger into the NBA market for a while and they lined up some nice stars — Brandon Jennings, DeAndre Jordan — who fans know but who have never really broken into the big time. That has changed. Stephen Curry is leaving Nike for a new Under Armour deal,…

  14. Thursday And-1 Links: Jeremy Lamb as a young jeans model

    Sep 26, 2013, 8:23 PM EST

    Jeremy Lamb

    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. • This is a few months old, but did you know Thunder reserve Jeremy…

  15. Andre Iguodala thinks his skill set is underappreciated

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:27 PM EST

    Andre Iguodala

    In the bottom line definition of how much a player is worth to a team, Andre Iguodala is a $12.9 million a year player. However, there is no one definitive way to judge a player’s worth — not money, not points per game, not PER, not All-Star appearances, not rings. None of it alone defines…

  16. Andrew Bogut not worried about contract extension with Warriors

    Sep 14, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut is entering the final season of his contract with the Warriors, and is feeling 100 percent healthy for the first time in over two years. How healthy Bogut can remain and how much he impacts the Warriors’ expected playoff run will go a long way in determining whether or not he’s back with…

  17. Warriors’ Andrew Bogut says he is “100 percent” healthy

    Sep 13, 2013, 7:15 PM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    It’s going to be an interesting season in Golden State — there are expectations now. No sneaking up on anyone. They have a budding superstar in Stephen Curry, they went out and got a No. 2 guy and perimeter defender in Andre Iguodala, they have an All-Star in David Lee and good role players like…

  18. Golden State’s arena sign of things to come

    Sep 12, 2013, 4:53 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    The suddenly-relevant Warriors have made big strides.  Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Bogut, & Co. have turned the Bay Area into a basketball hotbed – you could practically feel the crackle of energy in the air as they upset Denver in last year’s playoffs. The sky’s the limit for this team, and local investors are…

  19. Nobody is happier Iguodala is in Golden State than Klay Thompson

    Sep 12, 2013, 1:17 PM EST

    Klay Thompson

    Klay Thompson is a pure shooter. He is out there to knock down jumpers, and while he can do a few other things on the court he gets paid to be one of the better sharpshooters in the league (although second best on his team). He’s not a lockdown defender. He works on that end,…

  20. Harrison Barnes is cool with coming off Warriors’ bench

    Sep 11, 2013, 10:09 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Five

    Harrison Barnes started every game as a rookie for the Golden State Warriors last season. More importantly, he was on the court when the Warriors were finishing tight games last season. He found his footing and by the playoffs was a key contributor (16.1 points a game in the postseason) to a team that finally…

  21. Brandon Jennings says Pistons ‘should own the glass’ next season

    Sep 10, 2013, 10:01 PM EST

    Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars

    The Pistons have a lot of new pieces to fit together once training camp opens at the end of the month, but that’s going to be part of the fun. Detroit added Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith to an already talented group of young players, and put a new head coach in place in Maurice…

  22. Gary Payton picks Golden State to win Western Conference

    Sep 3, 2013, 3:59 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Golden State is going to be a trendy pick for some this season. They have the shooting in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, they have added Andre Iguodala to help them in transition and with perimeter defense, they have a double-double machine in David Lee coming back, they bring Harrison Barnes off the bench. Optimism…

  23. New Kings coach wants Cousins to be an improved passer

    Sep 2, 2013, 3:00 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins

    New Kings coach Mike Malone says of his offense what every coach says about their offense in the off-season — he wants to run. He wants to defend and be up tempo in transition. That may be true, but it’s pretty much like everyone running for president in the last 30 years saying they want…

  24. Warriors think they have a healthy Andrew Bogut this season

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:02 PM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season, Andrew Bogut missed 50 games. The season before that 54. The season before that 17. It’s been a long time since we’ve really seen a healthy Bogut for an extended period. But we also saw in the playoffs last season what a healthy Bogut means to Golden State — he is their defensive…

  25. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EST

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…
