  1. NBA season preview: New Orleans Hornets

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:40 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Houston Rockets

    Last Season: The player the franchise had built itself around, Chris Paul, decided he wanted out before last season began. He did so in a far less-aggravating way than his superstar counterparts (we’re looking at you, Mr. Anthony and Mr. Howard), but he did it just the same. Since the key piece the Hornets received in…

  2. Video: New “License to Lillard” follows him through draft

    Oct 23, 2012, 1:40 PM EDT

    Mo Williams, Damian Lillard

    We think of the NBA Draft as one night, but really it’s the culmination of years of work to get considered, them months and months of workouts and evaluations and the Draft Combine. It’s a lot of work. This lastest “Licensed to Lillard” video follows Damian Lillard through the process (all the way to being the…

  3. Video: In case you forgot, DeAndre Jordan knows how to finish

    Oct 23, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    BASKET-CHN-NBA

    There are a couple of reasons to run this clip. One is the DeAndre Jordan finish which is monster. He was like this all game against the Andrew Bogut-less Warriors, a team that lacks an inside presence and Jordan took advantage. The other is that Ralph Lawler’s calls are the best. Jordan has looked good…

  4. Andrew Bogut is on schedule, but there’s still no timetable for his return

    Oct 20, 2012, 10:44 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    As the Warriors shut down Stephen Curry for the preseason, they have another concern on their hands. Andrew Bogut has not played. He has not scrimmaged. He has not participated in a basketball game since surgery. And while he’s spoken of making it back for the regular season opener, the Warriors have not given a…

  5. Stephen Curry wants you to punch Wes Matthews (and know his ankle is fine)

    Oct 20, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    stephen curry

    At this point, every roll of the ankle for Stephen Curry is accompanied by concern, frustration, and that all-too-familiar queasy feeling. Curry is just too good to always be on the bench in a suit, and no matter what team you pull for, it’s hard not to feel for the guy. As it turns out,…

  6. How to win the preseason

    Oct 20, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Marvin Wiliams, Al Jefferson, Paul Milsap

    No one has ever accused the Utah Jazz of being too trendy. Just like John Stockton defiantly ignored the whole “wearing shorts that allow circulation to the rest of your leg” thing late in his career, Utah has completely avoided the recent trend of slimming down and going small. The Jazz will start four players…

  7. Curry leaves game after rolling surgically repaired ankle

    Oct 19, 2012, 11:52 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Jerry West

    Oh, please don’t let this be serious. Golden State guard Stephen Curry left during the second quarter of Friday night’s preseason game against Portland when he rolled and sprained his surgically repaired right ankle. The ankle he has had multiple surgeries on, the one that limited him to 26 games last season. We don’t have…

  8. Dirk Nowitzki has knee surgery Friday, out six weeks

    Oct 19, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    Rather than wait and hope it heals like it did last season, Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks are being proactive. Nowitzki underwent arthroscopic surgery to his right knee Friday morning and will be out for about six weeks, the team announced Friday. That timeframe has him returning around the start of December. That would…

  9. NBA season preview: Golden State Warriors

    Oct 18, 2012, 5:36 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, David Lee, Andrew Bogut

    Last Season: The Warriors hope that last season was one where the decisions the franchise made put the team in position to compete for years to come — starting now. First year head coach Mark Jackson didn’t have much to work with, and Stephen Curry‘s ankle problems that allowed him to play only 26 games…

  10. Apparently Jarrett Jack gets the first warning about flopping

    Oct 17, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets

    Is there flopping in the preseason? Apparently. At least someone in the league office in New York thinks so. Golden State point guard Jarrett Jack tweeted this on Wednesday: So I’ve been warned for flopping hahaha smdh — JARRETT JACK (@Jarrettjack03) October 16, 2012 If you want to bask in some irony for a moment,…

  11. Odds on NBA MVP (yes, LeBron leads), Rookie of Year

    Oct 17, 2012, 2:23 PM EDT

    James of the U.S. hugs teammate Durant after their game against Lithuania at their men's preliminary round Group A basketball match at the Basketball Arena during the London 2012 Olympic Games

    If you don’t have LeBron James, Kevin Durant on top of your “most likely to win the MVP” list you’re doing it wrong. Professional odds makers don’t do it wrong. So when the guys at offshore book Bovada put together a list, you know who is at the top. But the real value is farther…

  12. Deadline looms: Will Bulls give Gibson contract extension?

    Oct 17, 2012, 1:28 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    The deadline is one week from today — either teams reach terms on a contract extension with players from the draft class of 2009 or said players become restricted free agents next summer. A deal gets struck by Halloween or other teams can make a run at the guy next July. There are some interesting…

    Oct 16, 2012, 8:17 PM EDT

    Seattle SuperSonics v Denver Nuggets

  14. How do you bust out of a slump? Steve Kerr grew a goatee.

    Oct 15, 2012, 4:32 PM EDT

    Steve-Kerr

    Every athlete goes through slumps. How they deal with it changes. Some guys need a slump buster. Some guys talk to confidants. A lot of just simply try to practice their way out of it and get their confidence back — they take more shooting reps after practice. Or, some guys lose it, like Andris…

  15. A year later, the Wolves drafting Williams still doesn’t make sense for anyone

    Oct 13, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    From Canis Hoopus.com: At some point, I think this team is just going to have to face the facts: Williams is a guy who could potentially be a pretty good power forward, on a team that has absolutely no minutes available at power forward. It’s not like the Wolves are oblivious to this sort of…

  16. Nowtizki back at practice, other updates from NBA camps

    Oct 12, 2012, 1:54 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    During NBA training camps there are a rash of small injuries and guys missing games for an assortment of reasons, so many you can’t keep track. We’re here to help. Here is a little Friday rundown of camp notes from around the NBA. • Dirk Nowitzki returned to the full Mavericks practice on Friday. Nowitzki…

  17. NBA Preview: Utah Jazz

    Oct 11, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Derrick Favors, Al Jefferson

    Last season: The Utah Jazz were what they have always seemed to be — solid. They moved on from the Deron Williams era to a team that tried to dominate with its front line of Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, while hoping young guys like Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors would develop. The result was…

  18. Bogut may not be back for Warriors season opener after all

    Oct 10, 2012, 10:11 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Well, this is less than ideal for a Warriors team dreaming of the playoffs but with almost no margin for error. Andrew Bogut still isn’t moving all that well on his surgically repaired foot and while he wants to be back he may miss the start of the season, reports Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com. “Just…

  19. Video: Harrison Barnes dunks on Al Jefferson

    Oct 9, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    This is not an all-time classic or anything, but for a rookie making a play on a long-time veteran  it’s pretty good. This is Warriors rookie Harrison Barnes throwing it down on Al Jefferson (who was late on the rotation but in part because Paul Millsap did nothing to slow Barnes coming off the pick,…

  20. Stephen Curry back on court in preseason, played one half

    Oct 9, 2012, 2:44 AM EDT

    nba-lockout-curry

    Stephen Curry played half a basketball game. The Warriors are hoping that in a few months that will not be noteworthy, but it was the first time in seven months that Curry played a half of basketball Monday night, in a preseason game against the Jazz. He didn’t play the second half because of a…

  21. Nash crossed Jarrett Jack, looked good in Lakers debut

    Oct 8, 2012, 4:41 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    That is the highlight everyone is talking about in Los Angeles, Steve Nash crossing over Jarrett Jack during the Lakers preseason opener against the Warriors in Fresno. It’s really not what Nash did best in this game. What Nash did well is something the Lakers have not done consistently in recent years — quick ball…

  22. Notes from Sunday’s NBA preseason games

    Oct 8, 2012, 2:46 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    It doesn’t matter who won or lost, so while the scores are listed below just consider those just a little headline so you know who we are talking about. What we want to know in preseason is who stood out — like Eric Bledsoe and Ty Lawson did in the Clippers/Nuggets game Saturday in Las…

  23. The Warriors have a good problem at small forward

    Oct 7, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    The Warriors, when the draft was approaching, were desperate for small forward help. They wanted an experienced player to “make the” at the position. They couldn’t find a star upgrade by trading the draft pick, so they picked up  Harrison Barnes. They still don’t have that star, but as it turns out, they have enough…

  24. Andrew Bogut wants his team to fight. Each other.

    Oct 6, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    andrew bogut

    Andrew Bogut has what you might call a false positive ID for being injury-prone. While it’s true that Bogut has lost a huge number of games over the  past three seasons to injury, much of that has stemmed from a serious of freak injuries. He doesn’t have the worrisome food problems that plague so many…
