    Golden State Warriors v Portland Trail Blazers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching your bracket go up in flames on the first day… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors.

  5. Jermaine O’Neal treating this season like it’s his last

    Mar 4, 2014, 10:27 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Jermaine O’Neal has spent three careers in the NBA. He entered the league as its youngest player – undercutting Kobe Bryant by a few months – and spent four seasons in Portland buried on the bench. Then, he went to Indiana and made six straight All-Star games, even finishing third in 2004 MVP voting. Afterward,…

  6. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about that Kyrie Irving?

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:05 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

  7. Thunder’s Kendrick Perkins out six weeks after surgery to repair groin injury

    Feb 25, 2014, 11:48 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks will not be able to lean on Kendrick Perkins for the next six weeks — something that will be welcomed by a lot of Thunder fans. At least until they see the team is 0-3 without him this season and the defense suffers. Perkins will be out up to six…

  8. Kevin Durant, Thunder overwhelm and blow out Heat

    Jan 29, 2014, 11:16 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    For the first six minutes of this game, it felt like 2012 all over again — Miami’s defense was smothering, Miami’s offense was finding space and knocking down shots. Meanwhile the red-hot Kevin Durant could not fine room to make his play. For six minutes the Heat looked like the two-time defending champs and the…

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    If the other team is taking the ball out of bounds and has less than a second to get off a shot at the end of the shot clock — or, let’s say, at the end of the game — the one thing you don’t want to give up is a pass to a guy…

    Channing Frye Suns

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Richard Sherman get the last word on Michael Crabtree, even if it freaked Erin Andrews out… Channing Frye, Phoenix Suns. A guy out for all of last season with a heart condition, he has been a key part of the Suns surprise season…

  11. Kevin Durant wants to shoot less with Westbrook out, needs help from teammates

    Jan 14, 2014, 2:10 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    It’s not that Kevin Durant wants to shoot more with Russell Westbrook out, it’s that he doesn’t have much of a choice if the Thunder want to score a lot of points (and they do, that remains kind of an important thing in basketball). In the nine games since Westbrook went out with another knee…

  12. Report: Former Portland Trail Blazers president Larry Miller candidate for players union executive director

    Jan 13, 2014, 5:08 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Portland Trail Blazers

    The National Basketball Players Association still hasn’t replaced Billy Hunter, who was ousted as executive director 11 months ago. Ron Klempner has held the title in an interim capacity, but the union is still looking for a permanent director. Enter Larry Miller.

    Nov 22, 2013, 5:31 PM EDT

    2013 Global Games - Shanghai

    When the Lakers traded for Pau Gasol, Kobe Bryant told the Associated Press, “It’s a matter of us just gelling now and putting it together.” Since, Kobe and Gasol have spent six seasons together with the Lakers. They’ve won two championships together. They endured last season’s disappointment together. They have definitely jelled. Kobe wrote a…

    In case you forgot, ousted National Basketball Players Association (NBPA, the players’ union) executive director Billy Hunter is suing the union and its president Derek Fisher in an effort to make sure he gets paid well on his way out the door in the interests of justice.

    Nov 19, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder- Game One

    Is the half-court line at  Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City a little closer to the rim than anywhere else? I guess not (the league would frown on that and all), but we’re trying to figure out a reason that Monday night Cameron Rodriguez became the fourth Thunder fan to hit a half court shot and win…

  16. Dirk Nowitzki warned Mark Cuban the Mavericks had big problems before last season

    Oct 23, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The Mavericks were so desperate to find a point guard last season, they started Darren Collison, Mike James, Derek Fisher and Dominique Jones in a futile attempt to keep throwing floor generals at the wall until one stuck. O.J. Mayo started all 82 games at shooting guard, but his play did not impress Rick Carlisle.…

  17. Nuggets’ Nate Robinson fined $10,000 for incident with Steven Adams

    Oct 21, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson, Brian Shaw

    Oct 1, 2013, 1:32 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Westbrook looks on during a timeout against the Los Angeles Lakers in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    This is bad news for the Thunder — not “the season is lost, woe is me” kind of news but for a team with championship aspirations it is a step back. Russell Westbrook had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee to reduce swelling on Tuesday, the team announced. The big news — it pushes back…

  19. Kobe Bryant thinks he will play in season opener Oct. 29

    Sep 27, 2013, 11:40 AM EDT

    Kobe prepares to throw a basketball to fans while attending a youth basketball final match in Hong Kong

    We know Kobe Bryant isn’t going to be ready to go at the start of training camp — he has yet to fully run on a treadmill at 100 percent, let alone get on the court and make cuts or do other basketball moves. Team officials dodge the timeline question but are understandably cautious. Kobe…

  20. Kobe says he would love Derek Fisher to come back to Lakers

    Sep 26, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    This is why you don’t let current players act as your GM. Derek Fisher is back with the Thunder this season on a one-year minimum contract, and after that he is expected to retire. Fisher was one of the great role players of his era and had a skill set that fit beautifully with Phil…

  21. Report: Chris Paul wants union to challenge league on flopping fines, HGH testing

    Aug 23, 2013, 12:13 PM EDT

    chris paul players union president

    There was a feeling among a number of players (fueled by their agents) that the former leadership of the NBA players union — executive director Billy Hunter and president Derek Fisher — were too soft with the NBA and too cozy with David Stern and NBA leadership. That stems out of the last lockout (which…

  22. Chris Paul elected as players’ union president

    Aug 21, 2013, 8:27 PM EDT

    chris paul players union president

    The days of veteran players with nothing more than fringe roles on NBA rosters heading up the players’ union are over for now, because for the first time in over a decade, a legitimate All-Star with plenty of name recognition has been elected as president. From Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today: Los Angeles Clippers point…

    Aug 21, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Roger Mason Jr. Hornets

    The NBA players union is about to head in a new direction. Back at the All-Star Game the union ousted executive director Billy Hunter amid charges of nepotism and questionable use of union funds — Hunter has since sued for wrongful termination — and the players are just hiring a firm to start a serious…

  24. Stackhouse says LeBron “misinformed” about state of union

    Aug 13, 2013, 11:05 AM EDT

    Jerry Stackhouse, Draymond Green

    LeBron James is not going to be the next president of the NBA players union. While I think his intent to have a bigger voice in union matters is serious, the fact is the man has a lot of commitments as the biggest player in the NBA — on the court trying to lead the…

  25. LeBron James thinking about becoming president of NBA players’ union

    Aug 11, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Lebron James

    The National Basketball Players Association is without a president following the scandal that saw Billy Hunter be fired earlier this year and Derek Fisher‘s term as president expire earlier this summer. The NBPA could have a major player waiting in the wings to take his place, however, as LeBron James is contemplating running for president…
