  1. No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett talks pressure of position (VIDEO)

    Aug 8, 2013, 3:39 PM EST

    Anthony Bennett

    Nobody outside the Cleveland war room expected Anthony Bennett to go No. 1 overall, not even Bennett. He admits that to NBC’s own Kay Adams in the latest of our videos out of the rookie photo shoot that took place Tuesday. He says he doesn’t really feel pressure being the top pick and he talks…

  2. A few more images out of Rookie photo shoot day

    As we’ve been telling you, Tuesday was Rookie Photo Shoot day in the NBA — we’ve brought you some fun images and a couple good dunks. Tomorrow we’ll have some other fun stuff from the day. But for now here are some of the official photos of the day that I liked. No. 1 pick…

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    After several notable leaks over the past couple of weeks, we finally have the official version of the 2013-14 NBA schedule. Let’s get right to it by taking a look at the slate for some of the key dates in the season. OPENING NIGHT: Tuesday, October 29 MAGIC at PACERS: The first game of the…

  4. Cavaliers sign Carrick Felix to deal, he will make roster

    Aug 6, 2013, 1:39 PM EST

    Carrick Felix

    Carrick Felix was a bit of a surprise draft pick when the Cavaliers plucked him out of Arizona State early in the second round. But they like the swingman, enough that he has a contract that will keep him on the roster this year, reports Bob Finnan of the News Herald (on Sulia). The Cavs…

  5. John Wall says he’s the best point guard in NBA (VIDEO)

    Aug 2, 2013, 2:42 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is not the best point guard in the NBA. I think it’s Chris Paul. If you want to debate it’s Tony Parker or Derrick Rose or Kyrie Irving (he will be in a couple of years), those are legitimate arguments to make. Wall hasn’t put himself in that conversation yet, despite his new…

  6. Marcus Landry gets a training camp invite from the Lakers

    marcus landry lakers

    Marcus Landry played well for the Lakers during Summer League in Las Vegas, averaging 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26.8 minutes per game in five appearances. That consistent level of production has earned Landry a shot to make the Lakers roster. I thank God for this Opportunity to be apart of a great organization…

  7. Paul George, Kyrie Irving excited for John Wall and his new $80 million contract

    Jul 31, 2013, 11:21 PM EST

    wall irving

    The Wizards locked up John Wall with a five-year contract extension worth $80 million on Wednesday, and the news excited a couple of other big-time NBA players who will be due for similar extensions in the very near future. Paul George of the Indiana Pacers started things on Twitter, when he sent out a message…

  8. USA Basketball wants Roy Hibbert, but probably can’t have him

    Jul 31, 2013, 12:36 PM EST

    Pacers' Hibbert looks down court during Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    When USA Basketball held its four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas last week, Roy Hibbert was a noticeable omission from the roster. There’s a reason, of course, and it has nothing to do with Hibbert’s level of talent or ability to commit to the program. The fact that he’s played for another country in the past,…

    Chicago Bulls' Robinson goes the the basket against New York Knicks' Anthony during the overtime of their NBA basketball game in Chicago, Illinois

    Nate Robinson and Kyrie Irving put on a show. You know the Cavaliers’ Irving is on his way to being the best PG in the game in a couple years, he can light it up. You know on any given night Robinson, now a Nugget, can fill it up going against some of the best…

  10. Nerlens Noel dances “Gangnam Style” with children (VINE)

    Jul 30, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    2013 NBA Draft

    So, apparently Nerlens Noel‘s knee is at least this healthy. Sixers fans just LOVE to see their injured centers dancing. This could become a meme. That said, this isn’t nearly as offensive as the last one, this one really isn’t at all. Not much else to say here, other than thanks to Dan Devine at…

  11. It took Jrue Holiday five minutes to get over being traded

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:59 PM EST

    Jrue Holiday

    A couple years ago the Philadelphia 76ers looked like an up-and-coming team — Doug Collins had them playing good defense, they had Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner to go with Andre Iguodala. There was some reason for hope… then the gamble on Andrew Bynum went bad. Very bad. Now the Sixers are rebuilding and Holiday…

  12. Daniel Gibson says he got in fight defending his wife

    Jul 30, 2013, 10:57 AM EST

    Daniel Gibson

    Yesterday we told you how long-time Cavalier (and current NBA free agent) Daniel Gibson turned himself in to New Orleans police to face a battery charges in relation to allegedly breaking a man’s jaw in a late night fight. Now comes Gibson’s side of the story — he says he was defending his wife from…

  13. Daniel Gibson turns self in on battery charge in New Orleans

    Jul 29, 2013, 3:56 PM EST

    Daniel Gibson

    Daniel Gibson — you call him “Boobie,” a guard with the Cavaliers the past seven years who is currently a free agent — turned himself in Monday to police in New Orleans in relation to a second degree battery charge. WDSU TV out of the Big Easy has the story (via Ball Don’t Lie). Daniel…

  14. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  15. Report: Chris Paul leaning toward playing in the 2016 Olympics

    Jul 27, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    The reason that USA Basketball held a four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas last week that featured 28 current and rising NBA stars (and a couple from the college ranks) is due to the fact that there’s plenty of uncertainty as to who will return to the team to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games. Program…

  16. First guess at who makes Team USA for 2014 World Championships

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    The FIBA World Cup – the basketball World Championships coming to Spain next summer — don’t play as big in the United States as the Olympics. It can get overlooked… unless Team USA loses, then newspaper columnists who hadn’t given the thing a sideways glance will pontificate on how this is some kind of disaster.…

  17. U.S. Soldier with windmill dunk in full fatigues (VIDEO)

    U.S. Flag

    We showed you the other highlights out of Thursday night’s Team USA scrimmage, but this was the best play of the night: A windmill dunk by a young U.S. Airman in full fatigues and wearing boots. If you can dunk like that wearing all that gear, you got hops. Sir, we salute you.

  18. Damian Lillard plans to work out with Gary Payton

    Damian Lillard, Doug McDermott

    Newly minted, soon to be inducted Hall of Famer Gary Payton is a Damian Lillard fan. “I like Damian Lillard because he’s from Oakland, California, and he’s a phenomenal basketball player,” Payton told ProBasketballTalk last January. “He should be the rookie of the year, he’s playing very well right now for Portland and I love…

  19. New Sixers CEO apologizes for Andrew Bynum debacle, preaches patience

    Jul 26, 2013, 1:02 PM EST

    Scott O'Neil

    It was a gamble, but I still contend at the time the Philadelphia 76ers made a good one — they had a chance to get Andrew Bynum fresh off a season where he played in 60 of 66 games (it was the lockout year), averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds a game, and shot 55.8…

  20. Report: Kings, DeMarcus Cousins to start talking contract extension

    Jul 26, 2013, 11:16 AM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins

    How big an extension would you give DeMarcus Cousins? If you are paying on potential, he’s a max player no doubt. And if the Kings don’t give him the max this summer another team almost certainly will next summer when he is a restricted free agent. Then the Kings will match it and all that…

  21. Harrison Barnes with a massive throw-down on Ryan Anderson at the USA Basketball showcase (VIDEO)

    Jul 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    USA Basketball

    LAS VEGAS – Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis were the stars of the USA Basketball showcase on Thursday, but this dunk from Harrison Barnes might have been the night’s greatest highlight. Ryan Anderson was victimized here, and while Barnes finished with 18 points in just 13 minutes, 10 of those came in the fourth quarter…

  22. Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis shine in USA Basketball showcase

    Jul 26, 2013, 1:08 AM EST

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    LAS VEGAS – The White team beat the Blue team 128-106 in the USA Basketball intra-squad showcase that put a bow on a four-day mini-camp held in Las Vegas this week, but the event was about anything but this game’s final score. The powers that be were looking for mostly intangibles from players in terms…

  23. It’s official: Kyrie Irving is on the cover of NBA Live 14

    Jul 25, 2013, 2:09 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    Kyrie Irving, here is the sign that you have really arrived. We told you this was coming, but now it is official: Irving will be the guy on the cover of NBA Live 14, EA Sports announced Thursday. EA announced a couple of years back they were returning with the Live series, hoping to challenge…

  24. Andrew Bynum makes backhanded dig at Lakers fans

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:34 AM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum was introduced as the newest Cavalier and said all the right things — if he is right and Kyrie Irving is right that is a dangerous team. I think we all expect Irving to be right and an All-Star; with Bynum everybody is wait-and-see. At his introduction Bynum stuck to the company line…

  25. Rosters set for Thursday’s USA Basketball intra-squad showcase

    Jul 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes

    LAS VEGAS — USA Basketball will wrap up its four-day mini-camp on Thursday with an intra-squad showcase that will be played in front of fans at the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of UNLV, and televised nationally on NBA TV. The rosters have been set for what is essentially an All-Star game where the…
