  1. Video: JaVale McGee working on the Dream Shake with the master

    Aug 18, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Nuggets' McGee dunks the ball against the Lakers during their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff game win in Los Angeles

    Just once I ‘d like to find someone who doesn’t look great working out with Hakeem Olajuwon. OK, I probably wouldn’t look great working out with Hakeem Olajuwon. But stick any NBA big man with arguably the best overall center of all time for a few hours in his gym and you’re going to walk…

  2. Nuggets GM also says he wants to sign Lawson to new deal

    Aug 17, 2012, 12:24 PM EDT

    Ty Lawson

    Part of the talk at the “hello Denver, meet Andre Iguodala” press conference on Thursday involved Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri and Iguodala both saying they would be willing to talk about a contract extension. Words like that are nice, we’ll see where it goes. But another note out of the Denver Post talks about the…

  3. The Inbounds: The Pierre-Bargnani Defensive Mirror

    Aug 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors Andrea Bargnani reacts after hitting a shot during their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Some of you will be aware of this, but for those of you aren’t, let me catch you up real…

  4. Arron Afflalo says all the right things about joining Magic

    Aug 17, 2012, 1:56 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo

    It’s going to be a long year for Arron Afflalo and his Orlando Magic teammates. They are going rack up a lot of losses and they have to know it going in — management’s plan is for them to suck so they will have a higher draft pick. But you might want to pick Afflalo…

  5. Andre Iguodala is interested in a future with the Nuggets

    Aug 16, 2012, 9:25 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    When you trade for a guy on an expiring contract, there’s always the risk that, much like a date after the first night out, they won’t see a future with you. There’s still a feeling of rejection when someone says they prefer the company of others to your exclusive company. You have to worry about…

  6. What was in Rockets offer for Dwight Howard depends on whom you ask

    Aug 15, 2012, 10:13 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Rob Hennigan, the Orlando Magic’s new on the job general manager, and the entire Magic organization is taking a lot of incoming fire — that’s all you got for Dwight Howard? What they got in a four-team deal that landed Howard with the Lakers was a quality wing in Arron Afflalo, veteran forwards Al Harrington…

  7. Olajuwon thinks JaVale McGee “should dominate the league”

    Aug 15, 2012, 1:02 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    The question has never been the physical talent of JaVale McGee. Back in 2010 he got an extended tryout with Team USA before the World Championships and in workouts with the NBA’s best those guys quietly whispered about McGee’s physical gifts. But he didn’t make that team. And despite all the potential the Wizards wanted…

  8. Iguodala is excited, says all the right things about joining Denver

    Aug 15, 2012, 1:18 AM EDT

    Spain v USA Iguodala

    You have to remember that whenever you read the comments from an NBA player about the new team he is joining, it’s pretty much the tone of what you would tell your mom after you got a job you really wanted. Just with more clichés. What Andre Iguodala said about joining the Nuggets to the…

  9. Report: Gallinari tweaked shoulder, likely fine by start of camp

    Aug 14, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari celebrates a score past the Toronto Raptors in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in Denver

    Danilo Gallinari has been spending his summer with the Italian national team as they prepare for EuroBasket qualifying (didn’t that just happen a year ago?), but reports say that back and particularly shoulder issues have had him not on the court with his countrymen for weeks. That’s not good. But it’s not that serious, more…

  10. Chris Andersen’s people say Birdman has received offers

    Aug 14, 2012, 1:59 AM EDT

    chris-andersen

    Chris Andersen is still a free agent after the Denver Nuggets used their amnesty clause on him last month. And his agent is doing his job talking to teams and spinning things positively.

    Aug 11, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Four

    For the past few years, NBA big men (and a few wings like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James) have been making a pilgrimage to Houston to work out with Hakeem Olajuwon like it’s the Holy Land of post play. Why? What is it like? Amare Stoudemire was down there recently, and wherever Stoudemire goes his…

  12. The Inbounds: NBA schmoe, International Superstar of Mystery

    Aug 10, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Jose Calderon

    If you’re a casual NBA fan, most of the players on the Olympic teams other than Team USA don’t ring any bells. You’ll recognize a few. “Hey, that’s that point guard for the Canada team, right?” “You mean, the Toronto Raptors?” “Yeah, that’s what I said, the team in Canada.” Or: “Hey, didn’t that guy…

  13. It’s official: League approves four-team deal, Howard a Laker

    Aug 10, 2012, 1:42 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Some Lakers fans were convinced David Stern was going to try to kill this blockbuster, balance changing trade. And you could bet if he really could have some owners (*cough*Mark Cuban*cough*) would have pressured him to do so. But the league had no real standing to block this trade — because it can be justified…

    Aug 10, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    25 observations about the Dwight Howard trade to send Howard to the Lakers, Andre Iguodala to the Nuggets, Andrew Bynum to the Sixers, and very little to the Orlando Magic. 1.

  15. Afflalo handles it like a pro, says he is excited to be in Orlando

    Aug 10, 2012, 9:52 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo

    George Karl loves Arron Afflalo on the court because he was a consummate professional — he plays hard on defense, can knock down the three and gives you his best effort nightly. Now he’ll be doing that in Orlando. And just like on the court, Afflalo handled news of the trade like a professional. Here…

  16. Did Orlando blow Dwight Howard trade? Too early to tell.

    Aug 10, 2012, 9:27 AM EDT

    Rob Hennigan

    With the Lakers, we’re going to know very quickly how this blockbuster four-team Dwight Howard trade worked — they are in win-now mode and with Dwight Howard it is possible for them. With the Sixers, we’ll know in a few years — Andrew Bynum gives them a true center (on several levels) for their young…

  17. Denver, Philadelphia, Iguodala all winners in blockbuster trade

    Aug 10, 2012, 2:16 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Yes, we’re calling this the Dwight Howard trade. And yes, the Lakers certainly come out of this winners. But two other teams in this blockbuster four-team trade did well for themselves — and it was a win for Andre Iguodala as well. It’s a win for Iggy and Denver because he is a better fit…

    Aug 9, 2012, 10:27 PM EDT

  22. John Wall, Gilbert Arenas headline Goodman League Classic

    Aug 8, 2012, 12:40 PM EDT

    goodman John Wall

    Last summer was the “Summer of the Pro/Am” with locked out players taking park in games at the Drew League in L.A., the Goodman League in D.C. and Rucker Park in N.Y. in record numbers. This year, not going to be as much of that. But some stars are still doing events, and that includes…

    Aug 8, 2012, 11:26 AM EDT

    Olympics Day 10 - Basketball

    Lithuania does not make it easy on you, they are a physically and mentally tough side that plays savvy basketball. Just ask Team USA. Or, ask Russia. The top seed out of Group A had to work hard for an 83-74 win to advance to the semifinals of the London Olympic basketball tournament. Russia did…

  25. The Heat are looking at Andray Blatche, but it’s not serious

    Aug 6, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Andray Blatche

    It is very much the “dating but not in a relationship” kind of deal. There have been reports that Andray Blatche was on the Heat’s radar. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Heat are looking at him, but it’s far from a done deal, especially because of Blatche’s market value: ..just because, as ESPN…
