  1. Coach K shuffles rotation, not that it matters as USA routs Britain

    Jul 19, 2012, 4:50 PM EST

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    If Thursday’s game in Manchester is any indication Great Britain is going to be a lovely host for the 2012 Olympic Games. They rolled out the red carpet for Team USA and by the end of the first quarter pretty much rolled over for Team USA, which went on to rout GBR 118-78 in a…

  2. The Inbounds: The Knick problem isn’t Lin, it’s consistency

    Jul 18, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    So Jeremy Lin is  a Rocket, no longer a Knick. That actually happened. The Knicks elected not to match the three-year, $25.1 million offer sheet from the Houston Rockets and for Knicks fans who loved Lin, this is awful, terrible, gut-wrenching stuff. For everyone else, it’s a lot of fun. Why? Because it makes for…

  3. With Lin out, Felton told he will be Knicks starting point

    Jul 17, 2012, 9:45 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni, Raymond Felton

    This is the thing that should make Knicks fans nervous about Jeremy Lin being allowed to walk off to the Rockets — the two point guards left on the Knicks roster were not really good last year. Felton was out of shape, turned the ball over nearly on nearly 20 percent of the possessions he…

  4. Knicks to decline to match Jeremy Lin offer. He’s a Rocket.

    Jul 17, 2012, 4:22 PM EST

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    Linsanity, welcome back to Houston. As was expected in recent days, the New York Knicks have decided not to match the Rockets three-year, $25 million offer to Jeremy Lin, so he will be a Rocket, reports Howard Beck at the New York Times. While nothing is final until midnight eastern, the only way this changes…

  5. The Inbounds: Steve Nash, the Lakers, and the lawlessness of the point guard wilderness

    Jul 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. “How does Steve Nash help them stop Russell Westbrook or Tony Parker?’ That’s the standard reaction from skeptics to the…

  6. Winderman: Lin’s offer sheet not problem, Knicks entire payroll is

    Jul 16, 2012, 2:25 PM EST

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    This is where many get the NBA luxury tax wrong: The third year on the offer sheet extended by the Rockets to Jeremy Lin will not cost the Knicks $43 million when factoring in the luxury tax, as some have extrapolated. It will cost the Knicks the $15 million on the third year of that…

  7. The Inbounds: The new Brooklyn Empire and the Crown of Relevance

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Sometime last Wednesday, after yet another round on Twitter battling the Brooklyn faithful (and they are a faithful lot for…

  8. Are NBA teams giving out “foolish” contracts? Yes. Lockout couldn’t stop that.

    Jul 16, 2012, 8:02 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    NBA fans are shaking their heads when they see Jeremy Lin about to get $25 million over three years. Or when they see Brook Lopez getting a max contract. Or JaVale McGee not signing a $50 million deal while seeking more. Or countless more deals since the start of free agency. Fans thinking pretty much…

  9. J.R. Smith suggests Lin contract would not go over well in Knicks locker room

    Jul 15, 2012, 8:18 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v New York Knicks

    There’s a real question now whether the Knicks will match the Jeremy Lin offer sheet from Houston, a three-year, $25 million offer. They have until Tuesday to decide. On one hand there is the fact Lin is not worth that much, he’s really not worth the $14.2 million he makes the third year of the…

  10. Carmelo Anthony calls contract offer for Jeremy Lin ‘ridiculous’

    Jul 15, 2012, 2:30 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Jeremy Lin, Mike D'Antoni

    Want to stress this up front as much as possible. Carmelo Anthony is not talking about Jeremy Lin‘s game, or how good he is as a player. Every comment Melo has ever made about Lin has been that he is a promising young player who can help the team win. This is not Carmelo Anthony…

  11. Knicks do not match offer, Landry Fields is a Raptor

    Jul 15, 2012, 1:58 AM EST

    Landry Fields

    The Toronto Raptors have a new starting swingman. Well, at least until Terrence Ross takes his job away. The Knicks have chosen not to match the three-year, $18.7 million offer sheet Landry Fields signed with Toronto, reports Alan Hahn of the MSG Network. Which means Fields will be Raptor next season. It was speculated the…

  12. Joe Johnson says the Nets are ‘definitely’ better than the Knicks. Here we go.

    Jul 14, 2012, 5:30 PM EST

    Joe Johnson

    Let the Battle for the Basketball Boroughs commence. We’re headed for a new rivalry, as the Nets and Knicks face off for the soul of hoops in Gotham, and the Nets have no plans to enter the arena humbly nor quietly. At a pep rally in Brooklyn introducing Joe Johnson, Johnson told reporters that the…

  13. Team USA experiments its way to blowout 113-59 win

    Jul 13, 2012, 1:01 AM EST

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    LAS VEGAS — Exhibition games should be about experimentation, about learning things to help you later. Unfortunately, you can’t learn too much from Team USA’s 113-59 throttling of the Dominican Republic in Las Vegas We learned that teams are going to struggle with the athletes and pressure defense Team USA can bring. We learned that…

  14. Video: Carmelo helps Griffin work on step-back jumper

    Jul 11, 2012, 1:16 PM EST

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates after a three point shot late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    This is why guys come back from things like the Olympics as better players. Blake Griffin needs to work on his perimeter shot, it’s gotten a little better but it’s not a threat teams have to respect yet. Part of hitting that shot is making sure you have space to get your shot off on…

  15. Video: Carmelo Anthony talks Olympics, Team USA

    Jul 11, 2012, 7:09 AM EST

    Anthony talks with reporters after a news conference announcing the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Las Vegas

    Carmelo Anthony was on SportsTalk on the NBC Sports Network Tuesday, chatting about the Olympics and Knicks with host Erik Kuselias. Topics include who takes the last shot for Team USA (they usually say “whoever is open,” I say you know Kobe Bryant isn’t going to let anybody else have that shot), and some about…

  16. Dwight Howard latest: Three-team deal with Bynum to Rockets in play

    Jul 10, 2012, 8:03 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers have not been able to swing a Dwight Howard for Andrew Bynum deal. The Rockets have not been able to convince Orlando to trade them Howard for picks and a few players. So, how about a three way deal. It’s being discussed, reports Eric Pincus at Hoopsworld (and confirmed by Marc Stein at…

  17. Cousins didn’t like Colangelo calling him immature

    Jul 10, 2012, 11:11 AM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins

    The first step to solving a problem is admitting you have a problem. Which brings us to DeMarcus Cousins, the very talented Kings big man who is part of the USA Select Team, the group of young players brought in to training camp to work out and push Team USA. On the first day of…

  18. Knicks reach terms to keep Steve Novak for four years

    Jul 9, 2012, 3:28 PM EST

    Steve Novak

    If you are an NBA role player and want to stay in the league, you need to have one exceptional skill, do one thing particularly well and find teams who need that skill. Steve Novak can shoot the three — he shot 47.2 percent from deep last season and took 5.2 a game. The New…

  19. Colangelo on Cousins: “He has a lot of growing up to do”

    Jul 8, 2012, 8:00 AM EST

    Demarcus Cousins

    Carmelo Anthony came out of the first day of Team USA practice in Vegas — where DeMarcus Cousins is a member of the USA Select team there to push the London-bound squad — and said this about the Kings big man of the future (via Sean Cunningham on twitter). “He fouled the s— outta everyone.”…

  20. USA’s versatile, athletic roster will be fun to watch. Will win a lot, too.

    Jul 7, 2012, 10:34 PM EST

    Blake Griffin arrives for a news conference announcing the players selected for the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Las Vegas

    Al Davis would have loved Team USA. Because speed kills. Team USA basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski coded it with words like “athleticism” and “versatility” — and those are accurate, too — but the makeup of Team USA is both lightning quick but with length. This is a team that that can run the floor, make…

  21. Griffin, Harden, Iguodala round out Team USA roster

    Jul 7, 2012, 7:32 PM EST

    Spain v USA Iguodala

    Blake Griffin, James Harden and Andre Iguodala are headed to London.

  22. Three spots remain on Team USA. Who should get them?

    Jul 6, 2012, 9:06 PM EST

    Clippers' Griffin slam dunks against Grizzlies during Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    We know who already had their tickets punched for London. Nine spots on the Team USA Olympic hoops roster have been secured and you can’t really argue with any of them: LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love and Tyson Chandler. That means three spots are…

  23. Report: Kidd jilts Mavericks at altar, agrees to deal with Knicks

    Jul 5, 2012, 5:15 PM EST

    Jason Kidd

    Mark Cuban’s “tear it down to build it back up” plan has worked out about as well as Napoleon invading Russia so far. No Deron Williams. No Steve Nash. No Dwight Howard (yet, at least). Jason Terry leaves for Boston. And now Jason Kidd, who the Mavs said they were near a deal with, has jilted…

  24. With Nash out of picture, Knicks trying to bring back Felton

    Jul 5, 2012, 11:38 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The Knicks lost out on their target — they thought they were the front-runners for Steve Nash, but he chose being close to his family over his second home in New York. So now the Knicks are looking at bringing back Raymond Felton, tweets Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. Knicks have emerged…

  25. Report: Lin gets offer from Rockets, Knicks will match

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:44 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    When free agency started a few days back we all thought Jeremy Lin would remain with the Knicks when free agency ended. And he will, it’s just going to cost New York a lot more than it thought. Lin spent the Fourth of July in Houston with Rockets general manager Daryl Morey and gave him…
