Golden State Warriors

  1. Warriors’ Lee, Bazemore put on show at Rucker Park (VIDEO)

    Aug 13, 2013, 10:39 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Former Knick David Lee came to Rucker Park and got heckled — Knicks fans let him hear it a little bit. But Golden State’s double-double machine put on a show, along with teammate Kent Bazemore. They made their plays, as you can see above. Hat tip to SLAM for the video.

  2. Report: Grizzlies sign Nick Calathes to two-year, nearly $2 million contract

    Aug 9, 2013, 4:35 PM EDT

    Nick Calathes

    Nick Calathes rated No. 6 in the 2009 NBA Draft, according to John Hollinger’s statistical system – behind only Ty Lawson, Blake Griffin, Tyreke Evans, Austin Daye* and Stephen Curry. Back then, there was nothing Hollinger could do about Calathes falling to No. 45 in the draft. Now an executive for the Grizzlies, Hollinger has…

  3. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  4. David Lee says Warriors not trying to trade him

    Aug 7, 2013, 12:34 PM EDT

    David Lee

    The Golden State Warriors have some salary challenges coming up in the next couple years. They are at a comfortable $66 million this season (over the cap but under the tax line) and next season Andrew Bogut comes off the books (at least at $14 million a year). However, Stephen Curry, David Lee and Andre…

  5. Stephen Curry doing off-season Zumba workout (VINE)

    Aug 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    Stephen Curry is getting his sweat in this offseason — doing Zumba, the dance workout of middle-aged women everywhere. It was MMA or Zumba… and is that even really a choice? Of course it’s Zumba. Yes, it’s a joke. But a pretty funny one.

  6. Ten NBA must-watch games this season

    Aug 6, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The NBA schedule is out and it’s a little like Christmas Day (unless you’re a beat reporter, then it’s explain to your wife how much you’ll be gone day, which is a lot less fun). Today is the day you can really start to taste the matchups that are coming. There are more good storylines…

  7. How about Clippers vs. Warriors on Christmas, too?

    Aug 1, 2013, 6:19 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Chris Paul

    Officially, the NBA schedule comes out next Tuesday, complete with a special on NBATV and everything (6 p.m. ET). But until then, things keep leaking out. Like this one from Clippers beat guy Dan Woike of the Orange County Register. Sources: Clippers will play Christmas game at Golden State. Final schedule will be released on…

  8. Report: Bucks, Pistons agree to sign-and-trade for Brandon Jennings

    Jul 30, 2013, 5:35 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    It looked like there were no suitors for Brandon Jennings — nobody made him a big free agent offer he expected (he wanted a Stephen Curry or larger deal) and now the only teams left on the market were not going to offer him one (Philadelphia, for example). But Pistons GM Joe Dumars and the…

  9. It took Jrue Holiday five minutes to get over being traded

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    A couple years ago the Philadelphia 76ers looked like an up-and-coming team — Doug Collins had them playing good defense, they had Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner to go with Andre Iguodala. There was some reason for hope… then the gamble on Andrew Bynum went bad. Very bad. Now the Sixers are rebuilding and Holiday…

  10. Nate Robinson will wear No. 10 with Nuggets to honor Lionel Messi

    Norway Soccer Barcelona

    In case you needed a reminder that Barcelona’s goal scoring machine Lionel Messi is the most famous athlete in the world… Nate Robinson — not usually the name that first comes to mind when you think of when you say “NBA soccer fan” — will honor Messi by wearing his No. 10 in Denver. That’s…

  11. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  12. First guess at who makes Team USA for 2014 World Championships

    Jul 27, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    The FIBA World Cup – the basketball World Championships coming to Spain next summer — don’t play as big in the United States as the Olympics. It can get overlooked… unless Team USA loses, then newspaper columnists who hadn’t given the thing a sideways glance will pontificate on how this is some kind of disaster.…

  13. New Sixers CEO apologizes for Andrew Bynum debacle, preaches patience

    Jul 26, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Scott O'Neil

    It was a gamble, but I still contend at the time the Philadelphia 76ers made a good one — they had a chance to get Andrew Bynum fresh off a season where he played in 60 of 66 games (it was the lockout year), averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds a game, and shot 55.8…

  14. Harrison Barnes with a massive throw-down on Ryan Anderson at the USA Basketball showcase (VIDEO)

    Jul 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    USA Basketball

    LAS VEGAS – Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis were the stars of the USA Basketball showcase on Thursday, but this dunk from Harrison Barnes might have been the night’s greatest highlight. Ryan Anderson was victimized here, and while Barnes finished with 18 points in just 13 minutes, 10 of those came in the fourth quarter…

  15. Rosters set for Thursday’s USA Basketball intra-squad showcase

    Jul 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes

    LAS VEGAS – USA Basketball will wrap up its four-day mini-camp on Thursday with an intra-squad showcase that will be played in front of fans at the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of UNLV, and televised nationally on NBA TV. The rosters have been set for what is essentially an All-Star game where the…

  16. Reports: John Wall, Wizards near five year, $80 million deal

    Jul 25, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    John Wall

    Would you give John Wall more than Stephen Curry got a couple years ago? More than Rajon Rondo? It’s certainly a risk, but the Wizards have their reasons and it looks like it is going to happen. The Wizards and Wall are close to a five-year, $80 million deal, something first reported by Marc Stein…

  17. Top 10 dunks of the NBA Summer League (VIDEO)

    Jul 24, 2013, 11:25 AM EDT

    Knicks Pelicans Basketball

    The NBA Summer League in Las Vegas (and Orlando) is not about dunks. It’s about seeing how a guy can really play against better competition, it’s about player development, it’s about guys getting jobs at the end of an NBA bench or in Europe somewhere. It’s a showcase. But there are some good dunks. And…

  18. Players at USA Basketball mini-camp trying to impress with minimal guidance from coaches

    US Coach K Returns Basketball

    LAS VEGAS – The USA Basketball roster is not only at capacity, it’s overflowing with talented players who all want to represent their country on the world stage. This week’s mini-camp in Las Vegas on the campus of UNLV is an opportunity for 28 additional players to make an impression on chairman Jerry Colangelo, head…

  19. Tuesday And-1 Links: Three years out, Lorenzen Wright’s murder unsolved

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Lorenzen Wright

    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 more than Americans love baby English monarchs… well maybe not that much. • Three…

  20. With Iguodala in fold, Harrison Barnes says he’s willing to come off bench

    Jul 23, 2013, 3:28 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Golden State made a good move getting Andre Iguodala — his perimeter defense is needed on that roster and his play in transition will suit what the Warriors do well. But it left a Harrison Barnes question. Iguodala will be the starter at the three (with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, David Lee and Andrew Bogut),…

  21. 76ers replace risk-taking front office with risk-taking front office

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    Confession: I liked the Andrew Bynum trade for the 76ers. They were a middling team capable of making the playoffs but without the proven ability to win a series unless the opponent’s top player was injured. Their roster had limited flexibility, and two starters, Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala, were aging. The 76ers didn’t necessarily…

  22. Ian Clark leads Warriors to Summer League championship victory over Suns

    Jul 23, 2013, 12:38 AM EDT

    NBCSports.com

    LAS VEGAS – The Warriors wrapped up Las Vegas Summer League on Monday with a 91-77 win over the Suns to take home the first ever championship trophy in the event’s history. Undrafted rookie Ian Clark was named the game’s Most Valuable Player, after putting on a red-hot shooting display that netted him a game-high…

    Denver Nuggets' Lawson celebrates scoring game winning basket with Faried over Oklahoma City Thunder in NBA basketball game in Denver

    LAS VEGAS – Kenneth Faried and Ty Lawson were on the basketball court at the Mendenhall Center in Las Vegas on Monday when the news broke that the Denver Nuggets had signed the dynamic and diminutive Nate Robinson to a free agent contract. Faried and Lawson are among the almost 30 players participating in USA…

    Raptors Suns Basketball

    LAS VEGAS – The two teams that have played the best and most consistent basketball through the first 10 days of Summer League will, not surprisingly, compete for the inaugural tournament championship played on the final day of the action. The Suns will face the Warriors in Monday night’s title game, with tip-off set for…

  25. Harden thinks Thomas Robinson will be fit in with Portland

    Jul 22, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Dallas Mavericks

    Thomas Robinson had a nice Summer League in Las Vegas. He’s a plus rebounder that not only gets the balls in his position but also takes them away from other guys, and he averaged 12.8 rebounds a game. He also averaged 10.4 points and 1.2 blocks through five games. However, the shooting woes were still…
