  1. Shaq doesn’t care for the Pelicans name, might not know what a pelican is

    Sep 22, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Basketball star Shaquille O'Neal of the

    Shaquille O’Neal is not overly fond of the Pelicans nickname. This is not an uncommon opinion. Shaq’s reasoning for not liking the new name, though? Pretty spectacular. “It’s a terrible name. I told Charles on TNT, I don’t think I’ve seen a Pelican before. Pelicans, are they that big white bird? I would had named…

  2. Still no official timeline for Gallinari return in Denver

    Sep 20, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Gallinari reacts after making a shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    This summer Danilo Gallinari has been doing his knee rehab in Italy, because… well, if you could choose where to do your knee rehab work wouldn’t you choose Italy? Gallinari partially tore his ACL back on April 4, and on that day the Denver Nuggets playoff dreams tore as well. When he returns he will…

  3. Andre Iguodala thinks his skill set is underappreciated

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    In the bottom line definition of how much a player is worth to a team, Andre Iguodala is a $12.9 million a year player. However, there is no one definitive way to judge a player’s worth — not money, not points per game, not PER, not All-Star appearances, not rings. None of it alone defines…

  4. Andre Iguodala targeting more than 50 wins with Warriors this season

    Sep 19, 2013, 12:16 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Andre Iguodala came to the Warriors as a free agent this summer, after Golden State upset his Nuggets in the first round of last season’s playoffs. The Warriors had a season of resurgence, getting to the second round of the postseason in what was only the team’s second trip to the playoffs in the last…

  5. Stephen Curry goes to Tanzania to help with malaria fight

    Sep 16, 2013, 6:41 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis

    All 272 times Stephen Curry knocked down a three last season — that would be the most ever in a single NBA season by a single player — he was also doing something to fight the spread of malaria. Through a program that didn’t get a lot of national publicity, Curry teamed with the Nothing…

  6. Top 5 plays from Sunday’s Eurobasket action (VIDEO)

    BASKET-EURO-2013-SRB-FRA

    In the only truly competitive basketball we have going on right now featuring NBA players, here are the five best plays from Eurobasket action in Slovenia on Sunday. As for players you might more easily recognize, only the number three highlight — featuring Nicolas Batum finding Boris Diaw — is likely to catch the eye…

  7. Andrew Bogut not worried about contract extension with Warriors

    Sep 14, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut is entering the final season of his contract with the Warriors, and is feeling 100 percent healthy for the first time in over two years. How healthy Bogut can remain and how much he impacts the Warriors’ expected playoff run will go a long way in determining whether or not he’s back with…

  8. Warriors’ Andrew Bogut says he is “100 percent” healthy

    Sep 13, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    It’s going to be an interesting season in Golden State — there are expectations now. No sneaking up on anyone. They have a budding superstar in Stephen Curry, they went out and got a No. 2 guy and perimeter defender in Andre Iguodala, they have an All-Star in David Lee and good role players like…

  9. Golden State’s arena sign of things to come

    Sep 12, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    The suddenly-relevant Warriors have made big strides.  Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Bogut, & Co. have turned the Bay Area into a basketball hotbed – you could practically feel the crackle of energy in the air as they upset Denver in last year’s playoffs. The sky’s the limit for this team, and local investors are…

  10. Nobody is happier Iguodala is in Golden State than Klay Thompson

    Sep 12, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson

    Klay Thompson is a pure shooter. He is out there to knock down jumpers, and while he can do a few other things on the court he gets paid to be one of the better sharpshooters in the league (although second best on his team). He’s not a lockdown defender. He works on that end,…

  12. Harrison Barnes is cool with coming off Warriors’ bench

    Sep 11, 2013, 10:09 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Five

    Harrison Barnes started every game as a rookie for the Golden State Warriors last season. More importantly, he was on the court when the Warriors were finishing tight games last season. He found his footing and by the playoffs was a key contributor (16.1 points a game in the postseason) to a team that finally…

  13. Brandon Jennings says Pistons ‘should own the glass’ next season

    Sep 10, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars

    The Pistons have a lot of new pieces to fit together once training camp opens at the end of the month, but that’s going to be part of the fun. Detroit added Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith to an already talented group of young players, and put a new head coach in place in Maurice…

  15. Damian Lillard sets goal of being All-Star

    Sep 9, 2013, 12:47 PM EDT

    APTOPIX Rookie of Year Basketball

    Damian Lillard sets his goals high. Last season’s Rookie of the Year isn’t shying away from expectations — he wants to help lead the Trail Blazers to the playoffs and he wants to make the All-Star Team this year. He believes he can. That’s what Lillard said to Matt Moore of CBS’s Eye on Basketball,…

  16. Wizards’ Bradley Beal has jersey retired by his former high school

    Bradley Beal

    Wizards guard Bradley Beal was honored by his former high school on Friday with a jersey retirement ceremony. From Ben Standig of CSN Washington: The Missouri native’s No. 23 jersey is being retired on Friday by his former high school. Fellow Chaminade College Prep alum and Golden State center David Lee previously had his jersey retired…

  17. Harrison Barnes calls Warriors’ season ticket holder, buys his seats (VIDEO)

    Sep 6, 2013, 4:59 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Five

    Golden State fans are rightfully pumped about this season. This was a team with some of the worst ownership in sports for so long that last season had a young core led by Stephen Curry that took them to the second round of the playoffs. Then this summer they went out and added Andre Iguodala…

  18. Andrew Bynum says he is on schedule for return… but doesn’t know schedule

    Sep 5, 2013, 11:31 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    There is no date set yet — Cleveland learned the lesson of putting a timeline on things watching the Philadelphia 76ers. It could be the start of training camp, it could be later. Based on history, maybe much later. But make no mistake, Andrew Bynum says he is on track to return this season and…

  19. David Lee says he has “no ill effects” from hip surgery

    Sep 4, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

    David Lee

    If Golden State is going to take a step forward off last season, a few things need to happen for the Warriors. Among them, David Lee has to be all the way back from the hip flexor surgery he had last May. Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group put an interview with Lee…

  20. Gary Payton picks Golden State to win Western Conference

    Sep 3, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Golden State is going to be a trendy pick for some this season. They have the shooting in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, they have added Andre Iguodala to help them in transition and with perimeter defense, they have a double-double machine in David Lee coming back, they bring Harrison Barnes off the bench. Optimism…

  21. Stephen Curry dribbles while juggling waffle fries (VINE)

    Sep 3, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Curry catches a break against the San Antonio Spurs in the second overtime period during Game 1 of their NBA Western Conference Semifinals basketball playoff series in San Antonio

    I’ll be honest: I have not tried Chick-fil-A’s waffle fries (I just don’t eat there). I’m sure they are delicious. And fat free. Stephen Curry is working on his game this offseason by practicing dribbling while juggling waffle fries. Which sounds strange, but makes as much sense to me as dribbling through an airport, putting…

  22. New Kings coach wants Cousins to be an improved passer

    Sep 2, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    New Kings coach Mike Malone says of his offense what every coach says about their offense in the off-season — he wants to run. He wants to defend and be up tempo in transition. That may be true, but it’s pretty much like everyone running for president in the last 30 years saying they want…

  23. Learn the NBA play “horns” — you’ll see it a lot (VIDEO)

    Aug 30, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors' Curry shoots over Denver Nuggets' Miller during Game 4 of their NBA Western Division quarter-final basketball playoffs in Oakland

    During the season you’ll read plenty here at PBT (or from other writers) talking about it, you hear analysts mention it on broadcasts all the time: Horns. Along with “floppy” and a few others it is one of the NBA’s standard sets that gets run by almost every team at points in a game. In…

  24. Warriors think they have a healthy Andrew Bogut this season

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season, Andrew Bogut missed 50 games. The season before that 54. The season before that 17. It’s been a long time since we’ve really seen a healthy Bogut for an extended period. But we also saw in the playoffs last season what a healthy Bogut means to Golden State — he is their defensive…

  25. Warriors’ GM talks about long road to them landing Iguodala

    Aug 29, 2013, 8:41 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    After a second round playoff run and the most optimistic season the Warriors fans have had in decades, the front office could have just tried to bring the band back together and grow the team that way. Instead, they came out aggressive getting into the fringes of the Dwight Howard conversation. But that was a…
