  1. Prosecutors drop domestic violence case against Ty Lawson

    Oct 9, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Ty Lawson

    Ty Lawson was arrested on a domestic violence charge back in August, but immediately after the news made the rounds, Lawson essentially proclaimed his innocence. It’s all now officially behind the Nuggets’ star point guard, as the prosecutors have dropped the case. From the Associated Press: Lisa Pinto, a spokeswoman for 18th Judicial District Attorney’s…

    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. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Lamar Odom‘s attorney has pled not guilty to the DUI charge filed against…

  3. This is what Clippers need from DeAndre Jordan (VIDEO)

    Oct 8, 2013, 10:03 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    We’ve talked about this at length at PBT and we haven’t even gotten to the Clippers season preview (patience, next week) — DeAndre Jordan is at the heart of the Clippers chances to really contend this season. That team is going to have one of the best (my guess is THE best) offense in the NBA…

    JaVale McGee

    Last season: The Nuggets finished the regular season with the best home record in the league, and a franchise best 57 wins, good for the three seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Then, they were bounced out of the first round by the Golden State Warriors in six games. George Karl won Coach of the…

  5. Andray Blatche takes to Fifth Avenue to practice his Eurostep (VIDEO)

    Oct 6, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    Andray Blatche has had a mini-resurgence of his career since being amnestied by the Wizards and playing a meaningful role with the Nets last season. Blatche wasn’t known as being the brightest of players, and along with JaVale McGee gave the Wizards a boneheaded duo that was responsible for more nonsense on the court than…

  6. George Karl hopes to return to coaching, admits ‘anger and frustration’ over way things ended with Nuggets

    Oct 6, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    George Karl

    George Karl led the Nuggets to the best home record in all of the NBA last season, and along with it a 57-win season that was the most in franchise history since the team joined the NBA in the 1976-77 season. But all of that wasn’t enough to save Karl’s job. He won the Coach…

  7. Randy Foye’s internal organs are all in the wrong place. Yes, seriously.

    Oct 4, 2013, 6:42 PM EDT

    Randy Foye

    Randy Foye is a veteran sharpshooter, last season in Utah he was taking 5.3 shots from beyond the arc a game and hitting 41 percent of them. He is entering his eighth NBA season, can play a little point in a pinch but mostly he is there to space the floor and knock down bombs…

  8. Jordan Hamilton, Quincy Miller knock down some trick shots

    Oct 2, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Quincy Miller

    Jordan Hamilton and Quincy Miller were having a little fun on media day, trying out some trick shots while most of the cameras were focused on Brian Shaw and Ty Lawson. And they hit a few. Not the best ones I’ve ever seen, but not bad. I’m sure they thought it beat talking to the…

  10. Danilo Gallinari says he could be back around Thanksgiving

    Sep 25, 2013, 11:12 AM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari, Zach Randolph

    Most pundits (myself included) expect a big drop off in Denver this year. Gone is the glue of Andre Iguodala to hold the defense together, gone is the veteran coach George Karl (replaced by the capable but untested Brian Shaw), and they are without Danilo Gallinari, who is key to their offense. It was obvious…

  11. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Chicago Bulls

    Sep 23, 2013, 9:17 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Last season: The Bulls went 45-37, putting together an impressive regular season that included the victory that snapped the Heat’s 27-win streak. Joakim Noah, Luol Deng and Jimmy Butler each got Defensive Player of the Year votes as Tom Thibodeau continuously reinforces a culture in Chicago. In the playoffs, the hard-nosed Bulls beat the more-talented…

    Who: France vs Lithuania. The French squad features five current NBA players in Tony Parker (Spurs), Nicolas Batum (Blazers), Boris Diaw (Spurs), Nando De Colo (Spurs) and Joffrey Lauvergne (Nuggets). Former NBA players Johan Petro, Alexis Ajinca and Mickael Gelabale are on the roster as well. The Lithuanian squad features only two NBA players in Donatas…

  13. Still no official timeline for Gallinari return in Denver

    Sep 20, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Gallinari reacts after making a shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    This summer Danilo Gallinari has been doing his knee rehab in Italy, because… well, if you could choose where to do your knee rehab work wouldn’t you choose Italy? Gallinari partially tore his ACL back on April 4, and on that day the Denver Nuggets playoff dreams tore as well. When he returns he will…

  14. Seven collegiate 2013 second round draft picks have international contracts

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:57 PM EDT

    Raptors Heat Basketball

    We have mentioned this before, the draft and stash is not just for European players anymore. Used to be a time when teams drafted a young Euro in the second round, let him develop overseas, then brought him over if and when he was ready. See Marc Gasol as a prime example. But now teams…

  15. JaVale McGee has a new website

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets' McGee stuffs as Golden State Warriors' Jack looks on in the first quarter of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Denver

    So what, you ask?  Most celebrities do, anyways.  Well, this one is notable for who it represents.  It (re)launched today, and does not disappoint.  Worth a solid ten-minute break from your workday, no question. Do you know JaVale’s height and weight at birth? Do you know his high school GPA?  Did you know he feeds…

  16. Watch Nate Robinson go through preseason workouts

    Sep 18, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game One

    Nate Robinson — who is with the Denver Nuggets this season, in case you lost track of his travels — is like virtually every other NBA player right now: It’s pre-camp workout times. Most players get to their cities a month or more before the season starts and workout with teammates on and off the…

  17. How many “real” point guards are there in the NBA? Gary Payton says three.

    Sep 17, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    The NBA game is different then when Gary Payton was a lock down defender on his way to a Hall of Fame career — in 2000 the NBA took away hand checking and any contact on the perimeter, a year later zone defenses were permitted again in the NBA. Payton told us at PBT earlier…

  18. Look for a lot more JaVale McGee in Denver this season

    Sep 12, 2013, 11:14 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    JaVale McGee is a smart guy. He also just does some stupid things on the basketball court. Ones that Shaq mocked on Inside the NBA, decisions big and small that had former coach George Karl limiting his minutes. All that could change this season. Part of Karl’s surprise exit from Denver was a disagreement about…

  20. Damian Lillard sets goal of being All-Star

    Sep 9, 2013, 12:47 PM EDT

    APTOPIX Rookie of Year Basketball

    Damian Lillard sets his goals high. Last season’s Rookie of the Year isn’t shying away from expectations — he wants to help lead the Trail Blazers to the playoffs and he wants to make the All-Star Team this year. He believes he can. That’s what Lillard said to Matt Moore of CBS’s Eye on Basketball,…

  21. Hakeem Olajuwon says Blake Griffin could benefit from his teachings

    Sep 7, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Hakeem Olajuwon was one of the game’s best big men, and he’s been trying to impart some of his wisdom to a whole host of players over the last few offseasons. Guys ranging from Amar’e Stoudemire to Kobe Bryant to JaVale McGee have all worked with Olajuwon, and Dwight Howard is the latest project undertaken…

  22. Stephen Curry dribbles while juggling waffle fries (VINE)

    Sep 3, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Curry catches a break against the San Antonio Spurs in the second overtime period during Game 1 of their NBA Western Conference Semifinals basketball playoff series in San Antonio

    I’ll be honest: I have not tried Chick-fil-A’s waffle fries (I just don’t eat there). I’m sure they are delicious. And fat free. Stephen Curry is working on his game this offseason by practicing dribbling while juggling waffle fries. Which sounds strange, but makes as much sense to me as dribbling through an airport, putting…

  23. JaVale McGee beats child at pop-a-shot, talks some smack

    Sep 2, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets' McGee stuffs as Golden State Warriors' Jack looks on in the first quarter of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Denver

    We can only hope new Nuggets Brian Shaw watches this video from JaVale McGee‘s Instagram account and says “he’s right, I need to let him play more like Dirk Nowitzki and shoot some threes.” Not because it would be good for the Nuggets — it would be a disaster — but for the comedic value.…

  24. Nate Robinson makes dunking look easy… and he’s 5’9″

    Aug 30, 2013, 2:49 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    Just a reminder, Nate Robinson is 5’9″. I know he has won dunk contests and is a fan favorite because he is a fearless risk taker (which is why he drives coaches to drink), but just step back for a second and check out the athleticism. He makes dunking the ball look easy, like anyone…

  25. Andre Drummond working on his moves at airport

    Aug 29, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    He’s no Nate Robinson, but this is pretty great from Andre Drummond: What makes this work is Andre Drummond is a hulking human being — 6’11″ and pushing 300 pounds. When that starts coming at you and making moves, you flinch. Doing it to unsuspecting people in an airport could almost be a Japanese game…
