  1. New Kings coach wants Cousins to be an improved passer

    Sep 2, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    New Kings coach Mike Malone says of his offense what every coach says about their offense in the off-season — he wants to run. He wants to defend and be up tempo in transition. That may be true, but it’s pretty much like everyone running for president in the last 30 years saying they want…

  2. Trip down memory lane: Dr. J visits Rucker Park (VIDEO)

    Julius Erving slam dunk

    Last night was supposed to be one of the biggest nights of the year at famed Rucker Park in Harlem, the finals of the EBC league, but rain forced it inside where Kevin Durant, David Lee and some other NBA names still put on a show. That had me thinking about the history of Rucker…

    This was supposed to be the EBC Finals at the legendary Rucker Park in New York… but Mother Nature was not in the mood for hoops and rained on the parade. So the game got moved indoors in the Bronx to the Gauchos Gym, where some NBA stars still put on a show. Kevin Durant dropped…

  4. Warriors’ Lee, Bazemore put on show at Rucker Park (VIDEO)

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Former Knick David Lee came to Rucker Park and got heckled — Knicks fans let him hear it a little bit. But Golden State’s double-double machine put on a show, along with teammate Kent Bazemore. They made their plays, as you can see above. Hat tip to SLAM for the video.

  5. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  6. David Lee says Warriors not trying to trade him

    Aug 7, 2013, 12:34 PM EDT

    David Lee

    The Golden State Warriors have some salary challenges coming up in the next couple years. They are at a comfortable $66 million this season (over the cap but under the tax line) and next season Andrew Bogut comes off the books (at least at $14 million a year). However, Stephen Curry, David Lee and Andre…

  7. With Iguodala in fold, Harrison Barnes says he’s willing to come off bench

    Jul 23, 2013, 3:28 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Golden State made a good move getting Andre Iguodala — his perimeter defense is needed on that roster and his play in transition will suit what the Warriors do well. But it left a Harrison Barnes question. Iguodala will be the starter at the three (with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, David Lee and Andrew Bogut),…

  8. Andrew Bynum has gained weight, not touched a ball in some time

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:08 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Let’s put it kindly — there is great skepticism around the league that Andrew Bynum can or will contribute much as an NBA player this season or ever again in the future. Yes, his knees that have been a chronic problem and kept him out all of last season. More than that, however, are questions about…

  9. Reports: Jermaine O’Neal, Toney Douglas to sign with Golden State

    Jul 9, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    Jermaine O'Neal

    Golden State looks formidable: Stephen Curry at the point, Klay Thompson at the two, Andre Iguodala and David Lee are your forwards. Andrew Bogut is the starting center and his health (and defense) could be the lynchpin for how far this Warriors team can go. However, they need depth — and they may have found…

  10. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  14. Report: Warriors put David Lee on trade block

    Jul 1, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    David Lee

    The 2013 NBA playoffs were filled with many incredible moments: Ray Allen’s 3-pointer to send Game 6 of the NBA Finals to overtime, LeBron James making a game-winning layup with Roy Hibbert on the bench, Nate Robinson carrying the Bulls to a triple-overtime win and many more. One moment that might have appeared to deserve…

  15. Andrew Bynum won’t work out for teams as a free agent

    Jul 1, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Andrew Bynum didn’t play a single game for the Sixers last year, due to knee injuries that kept him from basketball for the entire season. Bynum is now an unrestricted free agent, but the likelihood of Philadelphia coming through with the dollars it will take to sign him is minimal, at best. The team’s new…

  16. One dozen NBA free agents to watch (not named Howard or Paul)

    Jul 1, 2013, 3:51 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Chris Paul is going to stay a Clipper. Dwight Howard is going to do whatever it is Dwight Howard is going to do. But those two are not the only guys who became free agents at the stroke of midnight and we ventured into Monday. Here are a dozen other newly minted free agents worth…

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    Andrew Bynum didn’t play a single game for the Sixers last season, after coming over in a trade that sent Andre Iguodala to the Denver Nuggets. Knee injuries prevented Bynum from ever taking the court in a Philadelphia uniform, and his time with the franchise became more contentious as the season went on. He finally…

  18. Carl Landry leaning toward opting out with Warriors, agent says

    Jun 21, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Four

    The head vs. heart decisions are the toughest. Carl Landry’s head says he will make more than $4 million on the open market and he can get the security of a multi-year deal if he opts out o the last year of his deal with Golden State. His heart says he had the most fun…

  19. Nuggets reportedly parted ways with George Karl because he wasn’t listening to management

    Jun 7, 2013, 10:23 AM EDT

    George Karl

    When the Nuggets informed George Karl that they would be parting ways with the tenured head coach on Thursday, it was definitely surprising, but it wasn’t necessarily a complete shock. Karl earned the Coach of the Year award for guiding Denver to 57 regular season wins and the best home record in the league, but…

    Instagram

    David Lee strained his hip flexor in the first round and was out, except for a couple Willis Reed-like appearances. He wasn’t moving very well. But he should be ready to go for training camp after getting surgery on his hip on Wednesday. Lee made the surgery public by posting the picture you see to…

    May 24, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan drives to the basket against Golden State Warriors Andris Biedrins during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    When a player averages less than one point and three rebounds per game over the course of a season, while possessing the option to come back for another year with the same team at a salary of $9 million, it doesn’t take a degree in advanced economics to figure out what the chosen course of…

  22. Dwight Howard reportedly adds Hawks and Warriors to his free agent list

    May 23, 2013, 2:47 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    As the Dwight Howard free agency news cycle rolls on, the latest report has him expanding the list of teams he’ll consider signing with this summer. It’s been previously reported that Howard is most intrigued by the Houston Rockets, thanks in no small part to a young star already in place there in the form…

  23. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  24. GM on Warriors turnaround: “Sense of desperation has passed”

    May 20, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    Just three seasons ago, the Golden State Warriors were a 26-win team with Monta Ellis and Corey Maggette as their two leading scorers — this was a team in need of a radical overhaul. Enter new ownership willing to invest in winning, new players to go with then rookie Stephen Curry, a new coach in…

  25. Harrison Barnes’ playoff scoring surge merely step one of two

    May 17, 2013, 4:23 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes, Cory Joseph

    Harrison Barnes had a solid regular season, making the All-Rookie first team as a debatable choice for that honor. He started 81 games for the playoff-bound Warriors, but Barnes took a back seat to Stephen Curry, David Lee, Klay Thompson, Jarrett Jack, Carl Landry and, when healthy, Andrew  Bogut. Again being the seventh banana on…
