    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Last season: 56-26 and a tough out by the hand of LeBron James. Head Coach: The perennially fantastic Doc Rivers. He may not have the mystique of Gregg Popovich or the cult appeal of Stan Van Gundy, but Rivers consistently does a great job of balancing the personalities on Boston’s roster while drawing up highly…

  5. It’s official, Rip Hamilton signs with Chicago Bulls

    Dec 15, 2011, 2:04 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    This is about as surprising as another celebrity death hoax on twitter. Richard Hamilton has signed with the Chicago Bulls, making official what everyone knew was coming from the minute the Pistons announced they were buying out his contract last week. This is a three-year, $15 million deal with Chicago but only the first two years…

    Dec 14, 2011, 2:53 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons  v Toronto Raptors

  7. Rodney Stuckey balking at Pistons’ latest offer

    Dec 14, 2011, 2:07 PM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    What is Rodney Stuckey worth? Stuckey is the point guard of the future in Detroit and wanted to be paid big money. Like $10 million a year. But the Pistons have offered a five-year deal in the $40 million to $45 million range — $8 to $9 million a year. So we are at an…

  9. George Karl says Ginobili, Ben Wallace are NBA’s Tebows

    Dec 13, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili

    In Denver, it is all Tim Tebow all the time. The entire NBA seems that way lately (which is better than the all Brett Favre all the time era, I guess). So at media day we should have known that Denver coach George Karl would get a Tebow question — who is the Tim Tebow…

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. Don’t be shocked if the Chicago Bulls try to get in the Dwight Howard mix, but it is a longshot. If you read on thing today it should be this: Lakers trainer Gary Vitti…

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least.

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

    Dec 8, 2011, 2:16 PM EDT

    Tayshuan Prince, Gerald Wallace

    Dec 8, 2011, 12:07 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    Teams aren’t technically allowed to come to agreements with free agents just yet, but Tracy McGrady is reportedly locked in to join the Atlanta Hawks nonetheless. But, before anyone engages in the usual snark-fest that ensues whenever McGrady’s name comes up, they should honestly consider the terms and return on this deal. McGrady may not have the…

    Dec 7, 2011, 5:54 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    This was always a wink-and-a-nod game the NBA was playing this week — teams could talk to agents and players, but not work them out or offer contracts. Right. Like there was not going to be some handshake deals that just have to be inked on Friday. The NBA looks away and just pretends not…

    Durant football

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant played flag football Wednesday night. The score: Nobody tore an ACL. That’s the only score that matters. If you want to get an early jump on MVP voting (which, admittedly, may be a tad premature what with training camps not even open yet) we’ve got you covered here at NBC.…

  25. Wednesday morning one liners: Portland loves Brandon Roy

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Do not underestimate the love of the Blazers fan base for Brandon Roy, or how that could weight into plans to use the amnesty clause on him. Carlos Boozer thinks the Chicago Bulls can win an NBA title. This year. How desperate are the Knicks for a big man to take a one year deal?…
