    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

    Jul 3, 2012, 11:59 PM EST

    2012 NBA Draft

    The initial reports did not sound good, but sometimes injuries are not as bad as they first appear.

  6. Report: Raptors sign Knicks’ Landry Fields to offer sheet

    Jul 3, 2012, 1:47 PM EST

    Landry Fields

    This is an expensive but smart play by the Toronto Raptors. Knicks guard Landry Fields has agreed to sign an offer sheet from the Toronto Raptors, Marc Stein of ESPN reports. Sources say that the three-year deal offer sheet to Fields, with the Year 3 jump a la Omer Asik, approaches $20 million What that…

  7. Well, now what Dwight Howard? Report says maybe Mavs.

    Jul 3, 2012, 2:34 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    I’ll say this for LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony — it wasn’t pretty and drew the wrath of many upon them, but they ended up where they wanted to go. Dwight Howard is struggling with that. His plan to end up on the Brooklyn Nets — already a public relations disaster as he disavows saying…

  8. Kobe, LeBron lead list of nine who secured berths on Team USA

    Jul 2, 2012, 11:24 PM EST

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    There are no surprises — did you think Kobe Bryant or LeBron James were going to be left off the team? —  but now we know nine of the 12 players who will represent the United States in the London Olympic basketball tournament. USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo laid it out for Chris Tomasson of…

  9. Long shot Odom pulls self out of Olympic consideration; Lin leaves USA Select Team

    Jul 2, 2012, 8:32 PM EST

    Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival  Gala: Benji - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    He was a long shot anyway after the disaster of a season he just had, but Lamar Odom — who had an invite to Team USA Training Camp — is dropping out of consideration. Via the only other national media member that went to my high school, ESPNLosAngeles’ Arash Markazi, on twitter: Lamar Odom tells…

  10. Carmelo Anthony has dropped 12 pounds, it’s not all wax

    Jun 26, 2012, 3:25 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Any NBA player with real championship aspirations has to see the Heat holding up the Larry O’Brien trophy and get motivated. Do you have any doubt that Kobe Bryant watched Game 5 then went to work out for a few hours? Carmelo Anthony is doing the same and trying to get ready for the Olympics…

  11. You can go home again: Donnie Walsh hired by Pacers

    Jun 26, 2012, 2:21 AM EST

    Donnie Walsh

    Donnie Walsh was the long-time CEO of the Indiana Pacers who took a few years off to bail the New York Knicks out of their Isiah Thomas hole. They rewarded him for that by shoving him aside (over differences about the Carmelo Anthony deal), stripping him of his power and making him a consultant. Now,…

  12. Before you say Nash will play for less money, listen to him

    Jun 25, 2012, 4:57 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    It’s all over the Internet and my twitter timeline: “Steve Nash really wants a ring and will come play for the Knicks/Heat/Lakers/Bulls/whoever for next to nothing so he can be on a winner.” Um, you may want to ask him about that. They did on ESPN radio Monday and Marc Berman of the New York…

  13. Amare Stoudemire apologizes for using gay slur on twitter

    Jun 25, 2012, 12:01 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire

    I don’t think agents and team officials can remind players of this enough — if you say it on twitter it is like saying it to a reporter. Even if you send a direct message to a fan. Amare Stoudemire forgot this for a second and sent a fan a gay slur on twitter, something…

  14. Report: Deron Williams will only choose between Dallas and Brooklyn

    Jun 24, 2012, 9:13 AM EST

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    They are the obvious choices, and now, it would appear, they are the only choices. ESPN’s Marc Stein reports: When NBA free agency begins at midnight July 1, Brooklyn Nets star guard Deron Williams will be choosing from a two-team list that only features the Nets and the Dallas Mavericks, according to sources close to…

  15. Kobe Bryant still king of international NBA jersey sales

    Jun 21, 2012, 10:35 AM EST

    kobe-game-3-nuggets

    Kobe Bryant is still the biggest brand in the NBA. Others are in line for his crown, but if you want to use an NBA star to sell shoes or soft drink or whatever internationally, Kobe is the gold standard. And he can sell jerseys, too. The league announced the top NBA jersey sales internationally…

  16. Steve Nash says he will listen to offer from Knicks

    Jun 20, 2012, 5:54 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    The dream of some Knicks fans to sure Steve Nash to their team is not dead. It’s not likely. But it’s not dead either. Nash himself admitted he’d listen to an offer from New York when he becomes a free agent July 1. From ESPN (via IamaGM): “The Knicks are a great franchise and I…

  17. Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony to be in Chinese sci-fi film

    And we have a winner in our strangest video of the day contest… As we told you was coming a couple years ago, the NBA has teamed up with a Chinese film studio to have NBA stars — Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, plus Yi Jianlian and former Bull Scottie Pippen — appear in a Chinese…

    It’s a fun mental exercise to make us feel smarter than GMs — who are the 10 most overpaid players in the NBA? Dave Berri — the co-author of The Wages of Wins and the economics professor who has consulted with NBA teams — came up with a list for CNBC that got a lot…

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder – Game Two

    Lost in the eternal pursuit of a high quality shot by any NBA team on a given possession in the name of efficiency is this reality: you’re always going to have bad possessions. End of the shot clock, up against a trap, heat checking, trying too hard to victimize a mismatch, all these things happen…

  20. Phil Jackson: Picky, mysterious, but open to a new gig

    Jun 16, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson answers questions at a post-game news conference following Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final basketball playoff against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas

    Well, it won’t be the Knicks or Magic, but the old weirdo’s got another ride left in him. From the AP: Phil Jackson says “there might be” an NBA job that would lure him out of retirement. The 11-time NBA champion coach tells HBOs “Real Sports” that the Knicks and Magic openings this offseason were…

  22. Woodson would like to thank Knicks for not calling Jackson

    Jun 5, 2012, 4:02 PM EST

    Mike Woodson

    Mike Woodson is your coach of the New York Knicks. Mostly because Carmelo Anthony actually played hard for him, which led to a good record to close out the season. He got the team to play defense, so he gets another shot at this motley roster. But there was a point earlier in the season…

  23. Anthony Davis “long shot” to make U.S. Olympic Team

    Jun 4, 2012, 7:53 PM EST

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    Anthony Davis got the Golden Ticket, the invite to the ball — he got an invite to the USA Basketball Training Camp. He got in the door due to injuries — Dwight Howard is out, LaMarcus Aldridge may well be out and Team USA could use some size to deal with the Spanish front line.…

  24. Suns coach Gentry “feels good” about Suns keeping Nash

    May 31, 2012, 12:02 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash’s free agency is going to be interesting. Nobody would really begrudge him if he went and chased a ring, but if he’s going to do that in the most logical place, Miami, he’ll be doing it for the veteran minimum. He could go to the Knicks, Lakers, pretty much wherever he wants if…

  25. As expected, Knicks retain Woodson with multiyear contract

    May 25, 2012, 6:37 PM EST

    Mike Woodson

The details of the years and money are not yet known. This move was expected after Woodson turned the team around to…
