    Gilbert Arenas china

    Gilbert Arenas as been out of the NBA for a couple years now, but he is still finding a way to make some explosive headlines. Arenas was arrested in Los Angeles with a carload of illegal fireworks, and if there is a celebrity arrest you can bet on TMZ being on the spot. They have…

  2. Quote of the Day: Jamison thinks Lakers’ drama is nothing

    Nov 13, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison, Lamar Odom

    “I dealt with LeBron leaving Cleveland and guys bringing firearms in the locker room. This is mild.” —Veteran Lakers forward Antawn Jamison, discussing the firing of Mike Brown, the flirtation with Phil Jackson and the hiring of Mike D’Antoni, courtesy the twitter of Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld. Just as a crash course refresher, Jamison was…

  3. Report: Gilbert Arenas’ deal to play in China ‘falling apart’

    Jonny Flynn, Gilbert Arenas

    Remember about a week ago, when we told you that Gilbert Arenas was close to signing a contract to play basketball in China? Sure you do. Well, the chances of that happening have diminished significantly since then, and according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the deal appears to be “falling apart.”…

  4. Will Dwight Howard stay with Lakers after season? Yes. Probably.

    Oct 22, 2012, 3:03 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    We didn’t need John Cusack driving across country with Daphne Zuniga to teach us there are no sure things in life. Unexpected twists turn what seem predestined into something all together different every day. So sure, it is possible that come next summer when Dwight Howard becomes a free agent he will choose not to…

    Jonny Flynn, Gilbert Arenas

    Since being amnestied by the Orlando Magic before the start of last season, Gilbert Arenas has been trying to make his way back into the league. He finally caught on with the Memphis Grizzlies near the end of the season, making 17 regular season appearances and averaging only 4.2 points in 12.4 minutes a game.…

  6. NBA Preview: Washington Wizards

    Oct 2, 2012, 7:20 PM EDT

    Bradley Beal, Ernie Grunfeld, Randy Wittman

    Last season: It wasn’t pretty, 20-46 never is, but the Wizards made some moves to push this team in the right direction. This was as dysfunctional a locker room as there was in the league, so trading JaVale McGee and firing coach Flip Saunders made sense. The team needed to bring in professional players and…

  7. Report: Gilbert Arenas considering playing in China

    Sep 28, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Gilbert Arenas wants another shot in the NBA. He’s working out at the Lakers facilities. His agent is calling GMs all over the place. Arenas is telling gas station managers his plans and that’s somehow becoming a rumor. The truth — there are no calls for him. Teams are not interested. They weigh the off-court…

  8. How bad rumors start: Gilbert Arenas to Lakers or Clippers?

    Sep 26, 2012, 10:27 AM EDT

    Arenas_beardshot

    This is not a post about Gilbert Arenas. Not really. It’s a post about how rumors start and how you need to be an educated media consumer when reading them. This is about knowing your sources of information. We will start with some logic — the Lakers and Clippers are both top teams in the…

  9. John Calipari comes to defense of John Wall

    Sep 21, 2012, 6:58 PM EDT

    John+Calipari+John+Wall+Drexel+v+Kentucky+umo9l0Q82zBl

    Kentucky coach John Calipari is a consummate recruiter — a combination coach and father. A guy who in private might be tough on his guys, but in public will defend them. Even after they are flown from his nest. Like John Wall. The former Kentucky point guard and former No. 1 overall pick is about…

While officially the terms of the deal are…

  11. The Inbounds: Kevin Durant says his time is now. It had better be.

    Aug 27, 2012, 10:18 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    In an interview with the Washington Post, Kevin Durant takes the subtle leap forward from “all humble all the time” in interviews to “No, really, I’m exceptional at basketball.” Specifically, Durant says that he’s done with people talking about how eventually he’ll have the league in his grasp, that it’s here, it’s now. The future…

  12. Here are your top-10 NBA highest-paid players for 2012-13

    Aug 21, 2012, 3:50 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    The NBA salaries are basically set for next season, minus a few tweaks for late pickups and drops. While there are a few good players still out there as free agents, said players are discovering right now the market is pretty dry. I hope they all like the veteran minimum. So who is going to…

  13. Video: Selby, Arenas put on show at Goodman Classic

    1972 Olympics

    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 like US Women’s soccer players love gold medals. • If it does end up…

  15. 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…

  16. John Wall sounds like he knows he needs to have a big year

    Aug 1, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    John Wall

    It’s time for John Wall. He came into the league as a No. 1 overall pick with the promise that he could be one of those few and hard to find true franchise anchor players in the NBA. That he could be a guy who changed the fortune of a franchise for a decade or…

  17. Gilbert Arenas’ old home for sale, complete with shark tank

    Jul 26, 2012, 9:20 AM EDT

    Arenas shark tank

    Gilbert Arenas was fun. Because as fans we love guys who are wildly unpredictable. That’s different than saying you really wanted him as the anchor of your franchise, because his idea of fun crossed all kinds of lines at times. Basically vintage Arenas was great for fans and bad for locker rooms. But the Wizards…

  18. JaVale McGee signs deal to stay with Nuggets

    Jul 18, 2012, 11:41 PM EDT

    Big men get paid in the NBA. It was ever thus. And it continues — JaVale McGee tweeted out the news (with a picture) of him signing to stay with the Denver Nuggets. According to Marc Spears of Yahoo it is a four-year, $44 million deal. That is more money per year but a shorter…

  19. Report: Dwight Howard wants trade to Nets. Again. Oh, and he thinks the Magic blackmailed him.

    Jul 1, 2012, 12:14 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Dwight Howard has informed the Orlando Magic that he wants a trade out of Orlando to the New Jersey Nets. … Yeah, I know. You’ve heard this before. But now it’s with a new GM! And it’s extra-ridiculous! Let’s get this offseason started! From ESPN: Dwight Howard met with new Orlando Magic general manager Rob…

  20. Greg Oden had the German procedure Kobe had done on his knees

    May 19, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Greg Oden needs a break. A good break. He needs something, anything, with his health to go right. After so many knee surgeries I’ve lost count, Oden needs something to go his way to change his career and give him a second third fourth chance at living up to his potential. Everything that’s happened has…

    May 2, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Nick Young

    From SI’s Chris Mannix, with a tip of the hat to The Basketball Jones and the DC Sports Bog: Lately, [Young and Arenas] have been seeing each other plenty. In Memphis, the Clippers are staying at a hotel across the street from the arena, the same hotel Arenas moved into when he got to town.…

  22. Is next season the season John Wall breaks out?

    Apr 30, 2012, 8:34 PM EDT

    John Wall

    I’ll admit, I was fooled. I saw John Wall crisscrossing the country looking phenomenal in the wide-open, no-defense rec leagues and charity games last summer and thought he could translate that to the NBA. I thought he looked healthy. When left open his jumper fell, when given room to use his athletic gifts he was…

    Randy Wittman

    Ernie Grunfeld will be charged with cleaning up his own mess. The team president will stay as the man guiding the Wizards ship for at least a couple more years, reports CSNWashington.com (the Washington Post broke the story). Grunfeld has been with the team since 2003 and now will be with them through the summer…

    Arenas_beardshot

    We will go through this one more time, then let this be the end of it. Not because it should be swept under the rug, but because it’s time to move on. Gilbert Arenas is trying to move on from the gun incident with the Wizards that led to him being suspended for half a…
