    Oct 10, 2011, 3:08 PM EDT

    NBA basketball

    Sunday night at the Drew League vs. Goodman League, the NBA players were on script — they said they just wanted to play. To a man. It was like a mantra repeated in both locker rooms. Monday, they took the campaign to twitter. NBA players starting with union president Derek Fisher and on through LeBron…

    Oct 10, 2011, 2:53 PM EDT

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

    Sunday’s South Florida All-Star Classic was the grandest of the NBA exhibitions to date, but it was nonetheless a single game in a series of similar contests. The summer of pro-am hoops has stretched into the fall of pro-am hoops, so much so that the idea for the next big exhibition game took mere moments to spawn…

  3. You want to see more crazy exhibition highlights from LeBron James and Chris Paul, right? Right?

    Oct 2, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Another day, another charity game full of highlights which really only reinforce how much better the NBA product is. LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Rudy Gay, and a host of other players played in a charity exhibition Saturday night in support of the CP3 Foundation. The players definitely put on a show, even if…

    T-Mobile Magenta Carpet At The NBA All-Star Game - Arrivals

    Miami’s power trio — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh — are reuniting in Miami, and thanks to Nike they are brining a boatload of other NBA stars with them this time. Of course, it’s all for charity, an Oct 8 game at Florida International University. Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated tweeted about it…

    Nickelodeon Celebrates Largest Ever Worldwide Day Of Play In Washington, Around The World

    I could tell you that Team Philadelphia beat the Goodman League team Sunday. That would be Goodman League team with LeBron James, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony. Philly got out to a fast start and a big lead, and no amount of stars could chase them down. I could tell you that, but do you…

  6. Who will be on Team USA for 2012 London Olympics?

    Sep 24, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Mike Krzyzewski — head coach of Team USA — has some brutal choices ahead of him next summer. Team USA is in the 2012 London Olympics and will come in the heavy favorite, but there are some other very good teams out there that could push the USA — Spain and Argentina come to mind,…

  7. What the Hornets should do if the lockout ends

    Sep 22, 2011, 5:49 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant

    It’s a crucial year for the Hornets. Chris Paul can opt out of his contract with New Orleans after this season, and it goes without saying that the franchise would be devastated if Paul left the team. Here are a few ways that the Hornets can build on their spirited first-round performance against the Lakers…

  8. Allen Iverson will not play in Melo vs. Philly Sunday

    Sep 22, 2011, 10:17 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    UPDATE 10:17 am: Allen Iverson’s longtime friend and manager shot down the idea that Iverson will play in the game, according to CSNPhilly.com: Gary Moore, Iverson’s longtime friend and manager, confirmed that the now 36-year-old Answer will not participate. Which is a little sad, these free-flowing exhibitions are a good fit for Iverson’s game, and…

  9. Chris Paul’s charity game to feature LeBron, Durant, more

    Sep 21, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Orleans Hornets

    Everybody wants to play with Chris Paul. We’re not even talking about his recruiting as a free agent aside (at least until the lockout ends, when the rumors will start up again). It’s also true of CP3’s charity game. Paul is hosting a charity game Oct. 1 on the campus of Winston Salem University to…

  10. Leon Rose joins the decertification rebel alliance

    Sep 17, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Miami Heat

    The barbarians are at the gate. They’re wearing Brooks Brothers and smell like money. And now, to quote a wholly inappropriate flick for the context, “They have a cave troll.” A faction of NBA agents have been ramping up pressure on Billy Hunter and the union officials to decertify the union, paving the way for…

  11. Talks with “handful” of potential Hornets buyers to start soon

    Sep 15, 2011, 10:44 AM EDT

    new-orleans-hornets logo

    The NBA’s economic model is so broken that wealthy potential owners of new franchises keep lining up despite the league being locked out. That includes people willing to buy and keep the New Orleans Hornets in the Crescent City, despite that having been a tough NBA market for decades. Talks with potential owners are going…

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    Let the Knicks conspiracy theories begin… or are they conspiracy theories if they are true? For those of you who want to deny that former Knicks GM and current Florida International coach Isiah Thomas no longer has influence with his old organization, we bring you this. Current Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire is working out with…

  13. LeBron, Durant, CP3 jump in for Philly vs. Melo game

    Sep 13, 2011, 12:51 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    The summer of pro-am games is about to jump the shark. That comes when all the big names start jumping into every game, representing cities where they have no real connection. The folks in Philadelphia should get a good show, but that seems to be what is happening for the Philly vs. Melo league contest…

  14. Video: Wade, ‘Melo, CP3 should not do any dancing shows

    Sep 6, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT

    NBA basketball players Wade, Anthony and Paul gesture to fans as they arrive at a promotional event at an outdoor basketball court in Beijing

    Ron Artest may be Dancing with the Stars (for at least a week), but according to the latest evidence that is more than Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul should do. During a recent tour of China the three got pulled into a dance off, and the results were… well, score one for the…

  15. Video: Highlights from Luda Day game — give us Bieber

    Sep 6, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    It was Luda Day weekend in Atlanta last weekend, where rapper Ludacris both throws some big parties and gives back to the community in Atlanta (such as taking 1,000 youth to see an Atlanta Braves game. The highlight of the weekend is the charity basketball game, which featured Kevin Durant (of course it did, he’s…

  16. Durant, LeBron put on show at Goodman vs. Melo League game

    Aug 30, 2011, 10:19 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    Kevin Durant matched up on LeBron James. One-on-one. All night long. That was the show at the Goodman vs. Melo league showdown in Baltimore Tuesday night. Actually, that was just part of the show, which is why it was a special night. The result was 59 points for Durant. The result was LeBron — who…

  17. Summer star exhibition-o-rama, part deux: Goodman League vs. Melo League coming soon

    Aug 27, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Goodman-Drew was a thriller, even if almost no one got to see it (even those who had tickets). But it was lacking in star power (no offense to James Harden or Brandon Jennings). There’s talk of Kobe joining the Drew League for a rematch in California, but there may be a bigger contest being put…

  18. Is it “bad” if LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul don’t tip?

    Aug 6, 2011, 10:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade (L) and teammate LeBron James wait to leave the stadium after losing the NBA Championship to the Dallas Mavericks in Miami

    Step carefully, children. We’re near the edge of a dangerous ledge. So NBA players not tipping is not a breaking story. It’s been talked about for ages. Fairly often it comes with certain racial implications that are fairly well documented (or at least claims thereof have been). But instead of going down that road, let’s…

  19. How the Kobe, Rose Philippines exhibition came together

    Jul 28, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    NBA's Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant dun

    Being rich has its perks. That essentially is how the two big exhibition games in the Phillipines last week that included Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Chris Paul and four other NBA players came together. It was because Filipino tycoon Manuel V. Pangilinan — called MVP by most — decided he wanted it to…

  20. While in China, ‘Melo and Chris Paul say they’d play there

    Jul 27, 2011, 10:18 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    What else did you expect them to say? Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul have been good soldiers for the NBA players union, officially keeping the door open to them playing overseas if the lockout drags on. Leverage baby! Even though for CP3 he’d be risking injury while on the cusp of a huge free agent…

  21. Chris Paul and the players’ moral paradox

    Jul 17, 2011, 8:51 PM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    We can do this one of two ways. The quick and dirty way, or the abstract and more complex way. As usual, I’ll give you the quick and dirty version first. In an interview with Business Week, Chris Paul revealed the stunning information that the players know how much the lockout affects the fans and…

  22. Kobe, Chris Paul part of star-studded Philippines exhibition

    Jul 15, 2011, 5:13 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant

    If you want to see NBA players on the court, you need to head to the Philippines.

  23. David West opts out of contract, hits free agent market

    Jun 27, 2011, 10:36 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New Orleans Hornets

    If this were any year in the last five, what David West is doing would be a no brainer. But this year, heading into a lockout followed by a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, he is taking a risk. David West has told the New Orleans Hornets he is opting out of the final year of…

  24. Still big gap between NBA owners, players after key talks

    Jun 21, 2011, 4:38 PM EDT

    NBA Commissioner Stern holds a news conference before Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Miami

    If you were waiting to really worry about an NBA lockout, now is a good time. Tuesday’s negotiation session — which NBA Commissioner David Stern had previously called key to avoiding a July 1 lockout — had both sides leaving and speaking in pessimistic tones. Chris Paul said this to Brian Smith of the Salt…

  25. Knicks targeting Jonny Flynn?

    Jun 19, 2011, 8:59 AM EDT

    Jonny Flynn

    Back when Mike D’Antoni first took over as head coach of the Knicks and they were trying to get back on their feet, the Knicks signed a player they thought would be the point guard of the future. With D’Antoni’s system so reliant on a distributing playmaker, grabbing a versatile point guard who had shown…
