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

    Jul 11, 2012, 1:16 PM EDT

    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…

  2. Video: Carmelo Anthony talks Olympics, Team USA

    Jul 11, 2012, 7:09 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 10, 2012, 8:03 PM EDT

    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…

  4. Cousins didn’t like Colangelo calling him immature

    Jul 10, 2012, 11:11 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 9, 2012, 3:28 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 8, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    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.”…

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

    Jul 7, 2012, 10:34 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 7, 2012, 7:32 PM EDT

    Spain v USA Iguodala

    Blake Griffin, James Harden and Andre Iguodala are headed to London. Coach Mike Krzyzewski and USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo made it official and those three men will round out a Team USA roster that also includes LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love and Tyson…

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

    Jul 6, 2012, 9:06 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 5, 2012, 5:15 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 5, 2012, 11:38 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:44 AM EDT

    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…

  13. Anthony Davis’ ankle injury not that bad, will attend Team USA camp

    Jul 3, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Draft

    The initial reports did not sound good, but sometimes injuries are not as bad as they first appear. Anthony Davis’ ankle injury was not as severe as first reported and he will attend the USA Basketball Olympic training camp in Las Vegas starting later this week, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC…

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

    Jul 3, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 3, 2012, 2:34 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 2, 2012, 11:24 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 2, 2012, 8:32 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jun 26, 2012, 3:25 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jun 26, 2012, 2:21 AM EDT

    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,…

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

    Jun 25, 2012, 4:57 PM EDT

    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…

  21. Amare Stoudemire apologizes for using gay slur on twitter

    Jun 25, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jun 24, 2012, 9:13 AM EDT

    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…

  23. Kobe Bryant still king of international NBA jersey sales

    Jun 21, 2012, 10:35 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jun 20, 2012, 5:54 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jun 18, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Tommy Hilfiger Womens - Backstage - Spring 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    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…
