    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form.

  2. PBT’s 2013-14 NBA season predictions… it’s not all Miami

    Oct 28, 2013, 4:08 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    The last couple years, it has felt going into the season that the road to an NBA title went through Miami. And it wasn’t going any farther. This year it feels far more wide open. Make no mistake, the road goes through Miami and they are saying all the right things about defending their title,…

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  4. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Charlotte Bobcats

    Oct 2, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Al Jefferson

    Last season: Remember when the Bobcats started the season out 7-5 and we all kind of did a double take? That really happened, there was a moment where we wondered if this team wasn’t as terrible as we all thought. Then reality hit. The Bobcats went 14-56 the rest of the season. Charlotte had the…

  5. Bobcats’ GM compares Cody Zeller to LaMarcus Aldridge

    Sep 25, 2013, 10:00 AM EST

    Cody Zeller

    LaMarcus Aldridge is a two-time All-Star who last season averaged 21 points and 9 rebounds a game. He has a variety of moves he can use to score from the post, has a turnaround jumper that is deadly and unblockable, he has a midrange game you have to respect (he shot 42 percent from the…

  6. Heat, Thunder have smallest roster turnover this summer

    Aug 27, 2013, 3:28 PM EST

    Miami Heat's James and teammates wait to take the court against the Spurs during the second half in Game 6 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    Roster consistency is a good thing. Look at the final four teams left standing in the NBA last season — Miami, Indiana, Memphis and San Antonio. Every one of them is consistent. You have to make some moves to get the talent you need, but after that there is really something to be said for…

  7. James Southerland gets a training camp invite from the Bobcats

    Aug 24, 2013, 8:00 PM EST

    Syracuse forward Southerland dunks against Michigan in the second half of their NCAA men's Final Four basketball game in Atlanta

    James Southerland is a 6’8″ forward who averaged 13.3 points per game in his senior year at Syracuse, while knocking down almost 40 percent of his shots from three-point distance. Southerland went undrafted, though he had an offer from the Spurs to take him late in the second round if he agreed to spend this…

  8. Who are Rookie of the Year favorites? Burke, Oladipo to start

    Aug 9, 2013, 1:15 PM EST

    Trey Burke

    There’s a formula for who often wins the Rookie of the year. They have to be a good player, certainly. More than that, he needs to be a player with the ball in his hands and on a team where he is going to be asked to take on a lot of responsibility. Damian Lillard…

  9. Cody Zeller talks brothers in NBA, playing for Jordan (VIDEO)

    Aug 8, 2013, 11:38 AM EST

    Cody Zeller

    I’ll admit that I didn’t really like Cody Zeller going at No. 4 to the Bobcats (soon to be Hornets) when it happened in the draft, that seemed too high. It may still be. But he looked good at Summer League, he was more comfortable away from the basket than I had expected having only…

  10. Victor Oladipo talks draft, how things are different now with NBC Sports

    Aug 7, 2013, 7:15 PM EST

    via @NBA twitter

    On the right, that’s Victor Oladipo, the first round pick of the Magic out Indiana, who has some real promise as part of the rebuilding going on in Florida. That is the Oladipo who was posterizing his fellow rookies and likes to wear Google Glass. On the left, that’s Kay Adams, who you certainly know…

  11. Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller dunk all over other rookies (VIDEO)

    Aug 7, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller

    Clearly, rookie photo day is taken very seriously. As part of the fun Indiana teammates last year Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller set it up so Oladipo could dunk all over his fellow rookies — on a trash-can rim with what I guess is a NERF ball. Doesn’t matter, getting dunked on is getting dunked…

  12. 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…

  14. Team name change from Bobcats to Hornets already financial windfall in Charlotte

    Aug 2, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    Charlotte Hornets logo

    This is how much the people of Charlotte hated the name Bobcats: The league has approved a name change back to the Charlotte Hornets but that will not take place until the end of this coming season, yet already the team is feeling a financial windfall from it. (Unless you think fans are lining up…

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

    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…

  16. Ian Clark leads Warriors to Summer League championship victory over Suns

    Jul 23, 2013, 12:38 AM EST

    LAS VEGAS – The Warriors wrapped up Las Vegas Summer League on Monday with a 91-77 win over the Suns to take home the first ever championship trophy in the event’s history.

  17. Summer League notes: Archie Goodwin continues to impress for Suns

    LAS VEGAS – After Saturday’s action at Las Vegas Summer League, we’re down to four teams and three games left in tournament play before the event wraps up on Monday. The Suns are still around, and were expected to be considering the amount of players with real NBA rotation experience that they brought to town.…

  18. Summer League players: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly so far

    Jul 17, 2013, 3:14 PM EST

    Cody Zeller

    LAS VEGAS — As we enter the tournament phase of Summer League, it is pretty much the halfway point, which seems a good time to take stock of some of the player evaluation and development that is really the focus out in Las Vegas. And when you talk player evaluation, you should always try to…

  19. Cody Zeller says he has no idea where he’s getting drafted either

    Jun 26, 2013, 12:00 PM EST

    VCU v Wichita St.

    This is about as fluid an NBA Draft as we have seen. There are a lot of role player potential picks in this draft but no likely breakout stars, which means teams aren’t “in love” with guys so much and are willing to move out or down looking for any kind of value. Which means…

  20. A couple NCAA Sweet 16 matchups scouts will be watching

    Mar 22, 2012, 8:33 AM EST

    Anthony Davis

    NBA fans — and to some degree NBA GMs — do a lot of scouting during conference tournaments and the NCAA Tournament. They like seeing players they may draft respond to pressure situations against good competition. But for scouts, it rarely changes what they have thought about a player they have watched for a couple…
