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

    Oct 17, 2012, 1:28 PM EST

    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…

  2. Tuesday And-1 links: Seattle arena takes another step (plus Basketball Prospectus)

    Oct 16, 2012, 8:17 PM EST

    Seattle SuperSonics v Denver Nuggets

    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 presidential candidates like watering down debates. • We told you the other…

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

    Oct 15, 2012, 4:32 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 13, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 12, 2012, 1:54 PM EST

    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…

  6. NBA Preview: Utah Jazz

    Oct 11, 2012, 4:49 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 10, 2012, 10:11 PM EST

    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…

  8. Video: Harrison Barnes dunks on Al Jefferson

    Oct 9, 2012, 2:44 PM EST

    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,…

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

    Oct 9, 2012, 2:44 AM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 8, 2012, 4:41 PM EST

    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…

  11. Notes from Sunday’s NBA preseason games

    Oct 8, 2012, 2:46 AM EST

    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…

  12. The Warriors have a good problem at small forward

    Oct 7, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 6, 2012, 5:00 PM EST

    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…

  14. Friday And-1 links: Kobe misses practice, other camp notes

    Oct 5, 2012, 9:26 PM EST

    Lakers guard Kobe Bryant smiles during an interview at NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

  15. Bynum sidelined three weeks with bone bruise in knee

    Oct 1, 2012, 1:09 PM EST

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    Andrew Bynum just got back from Germany, where he had the Orthokine therapy — you know it better as the Kobe treatment — on his knee. Something he has had done before, and last season he played a full season on those troublesome knees. This time the procedure left him with a small bone bruise,…

  16. Warriors trying to tone down the rhetoric and just win, baby

    Sep 28, 2012, 12:07 PM EST

    Mark Jackson

    Before last season the Warriors were brash. New owners, new coach right out of the broadcast booth where he was paid to be opinionated. They were trying to create a new aura around the long-struggling Warriors. The organization top to bottom talked openly about making the playoffs. Then they didn’t make the playoffs. Overpromise and…

  17. NBA Season Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers

    Sep 27, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    Kyrie Irving

    Last season: Despite the ugly record of 21-45, there was hope last season in Cleveland in the name of Kyrie Irving. The No. 1 draft pick out of Duke was Rookie of the Year and looked like a future All-Star. (Then he carried that over to his performance with the USA Select Team this summer…

  18. Who is NBA’s biggest trash talker? Curry says Nate Robinson, CP3

    Sep 27, 2012, 4:07 PM EST

    Chris Paul

    For some of us, the first name that comes to mind is Kobe Bryant, he constantly chirps. He said he started the trash talk on Team USA. Other people – particularly smaller guards — might think of Kevin Garnett. There are a lot of guys who talk smack during an NBA game, but when The…

  19. No playoff promises from Warriors’ Jackson this year

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:21 AM EST

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    Last year Mark Jackson was coming to the head coach’s chair straight out of a broadcast booth where he was supposed to be opinionated and brash. He was in front of a new team ownership group that was brimming with confidence. Jackson played right into all of it and was talking playoffs for the Warriors.…

  20. The Inbounds: Ellis and Jennings and the cliff of compromise

    Sep 26, 2012, 5:57 PM EST

    Brandon Jennings

    Something’s gotta give in Milwaukee. (Check out our Bucks season preview here.) The Bucks traded their often-injured-but-still-awesome-when-he-played center Andrew Bogut last season to Golden State and took on Monta Ellis. Ellis was a promising young star. Then he was the guy who got injured in the moped accident. Then he was a terrific player again.…

  21. NBA Season Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:01 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova   goes up for a shot against Toronto Raptors' Alan Anderson during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee Wisconsin

    Last season: Abort the mission! New plan! New plan! The Bucks slammed on the parking brake, wrenched the wheel and Tokyo Drifted in a new direction last season, abandoning the “all defense all the time” team built around Andrew Bogut and giving p on the fleeting hope Bogut will ever, ever be healthy. They swapped…

  22. Jose Calderon denies rumors he is unhappy, wants trade

    Sep 25, 2012, 8:59 AM EST

    Jose Calderon

    Jose Calderon played well for Toronto last season. A lot of people didn’t notice because, well, he plays for Toronto and they weren’t very good. But Calderon was — 10.5 points a game, 8.8 assists and he had a PER of 16.7. So, the Raptors went out and got Kyle Lowry in the offseason to…

  23. Warriors, Curry table extension talks. But he’s still optimistic.

    Sep 25, 2012, 8:02 AM EST

    stephen curry

    The world needs optimists. Stephen Curry and his agent are optimists. They believe that even though the Warriors and Curry have tabled talks of a contract extension, once team officials seem him playing in the preseason things will come off the table and a deal will get done. That’s what they told Matt Steinmetz of…

  24. Quote of the Day: Bogut shakes head at Lakers riches

    Sep 21, 2012, 1:37 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    “The rich get richer. That’s generally how it is in the NBA. Grown accustomed to it the last five-six years. The rich get richer and the poor have to kind of scrounge and find other role players to fill it in. That’s kind of the way it is.” —Golden State center Andrew Bogut talking about…

  25. Andrew Bogut plans to play in a couple preseason games

    Andrew Bogut, Mario Chalmers, Shane Battier
