  1. Sixers completely rebuilding Nerlens Noel’s shot

    Nov 6, 2013, 10:41 AM EST

    Nerlens Noel

    We’re not likely to see a potentially fun Michael Carter-Williams/Nerlens Noel pairing until next season — Noel is expected to miss this entire season recovering from ACL surgery he suffered at Kentucky last year. But the Sixers are not wasting that down time — they are completely rebuilding his shot. With a full year to…

  2. The Extra Pass Weekend Roundup: Seven storylines from Week 1 and Sunday recaps

    Nov 4, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Kevin Love

    One week down, 23 more to go. Let’s look at some of the emerging storylines from the first week of the season. A Sneaky MVP Candidate Emerges There’s a real struggle to discern what’s real and what isn’t in the early part of the season, and the standings are almost a totem of sorts. If…

  3. Gerald Wallace calls out ‘selfish’ Celtics teammates after loss to Bucks

    Nov 2, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    O.J. Mayo, Gerald Wallace

    The Celtics started off just fine on Friday against the Bucks, getting out to a 13-point lead after the first quarter and extending it to 16 points by halftime. It all came crashing down in the final period, however, when Milwaukee outscored Boston 34-15 to come away with the victory and send the Celtics to…

  4. Nets in control from start, hang on at end to finally beat LeBron and gain confidence

    Nov 1, 2013, 11:51 PM EST

    Heat Nets Basketball

    There are no statement games on Día de los Muertos. I’m not sure there are statement games in early April either, but right now it’s far, far too early to talk about them. Teams change and evolve a lot over the course of a season. A lot. Plus regular season series are not reliable predictors…

  5. “Inside Stuff” is back, Kevin Garnett on it talking Nets (VIDEO)

    Nov 1, 2013, 2:55 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Cleveland Cavaliers

    NBA TV is doing some interesting stuff this year — you should be watching “The Starters”  (6 p.m. ET weekdays) for one. Another step this Saturday they bring back “Inside Stuff” — this was THE must watch NBA show, with a few highlights, back before the Internet changed the landscape. The show premiers Saturday, hosted…

  6. Anthony Davis talks Pelican chemistry, his game and NBA 2K14

    Oct 31, 2013, 4:30 PM EST

    Anthony Davis

    While you were looking at Dwight Howard or Derrick Rose this preseason, the New Orleans Pelicans put together a nice little 7-1 record. Then on opening night the Pelicans had a 16-point second half lead against the contending Pacers, a lead the more experienced Pacers were able to make evaporate behind some strong play from…

  7. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  8. Five NBA players likely to get traded this season

    Oct 29, 2013, 3:35 PM EST

    Jameer Nelson

    When I started compiling this list more than a week ago, Marcin Gortat was the guy on top of it — then his trade happened earlier than anyone expected. The Wizards want to make the playoffs this year, the Suns want to tank and so they had a common ground. Now who is most likely…

  9. 5 teams that could prevent the Miami Heat from winning the 2014 NBA title

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    The Miami Heat will open the 2013-14 NBA season at home against the Bulls on Tuesday, after receiving their championship rings and raising a banner to the rafters for the second straight season. They’ll also open the year as the favorites to win a third straight title, but history has not been kind to teams…

  10. PBT’s 2013-14 NBA season predictions… it’s not all Miami

    Oct 28, 2013, 4:08 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    The last couple years, it has felt going into the season that the road to an NBA title went through Miami. And it wasn’t going any farther. This year it feels far more wide open. Make no mistake, the road goes through Miami and they are saying all the right things about defending their title,…

  11. LeBron says he hopes to play in 2016 Olympics; also talks Game 6, Boston rivalry

    Oct 28, 2013, 3:10 PM EST

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    There were reports LeBron James doesn’t really want to go to Rio. Not the city, but another Olympics — 2016 would be his fourth, more than any American player ever. However he told David Aldridge, writing for NBA.com (you need to read the entire interview), that if he is up for it physically he will…

  12. What to expect from LeBron and the Heat?

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    LeBron James

    You’re busy, so I’ll save you some time: a championship.  They’ve won two straight, basically their entire squad is coming back, and their best guy is the most dynamic and exciting player since Michael Jordan.  The Heat have all the tools they need to make a run at a three-peat – but even with them…

  13. Will the Nets or Rockets make a Finals splash?

    Oct 28, 2013, 10:00 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Flash back to April 26, 2012. The Nets closed the season with their six straight loss, missing the playoffs for the fifth straight year. The Rockets picked up a meaningless win that day, but they had just lost seven of their previous eight games to ensure they’d miss their third straight postseason. Both teams had…

  14. Deron Williams back practicing; Nets to rest entire starting five vs. Boston Wednesday

    Oct 23, 2013, 12:51 PM EST

    Deron Williams

    The Brooklyn Nets are headed to Boston for a preseason game Wednesday night — Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are coming home… Or not. The Brooklyn Nets (as had been expected) will sit their entire likely starting five on Wednesday night, the team announced. No new injuries, just Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, Joe Johnson, Pierce…

  15. Gerald Wallace: Celtics’ coaches didn’t like my criticism of team’s effort

    Oct 23, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Gerald Wallace

    It’s always risky when a player criticizes his teammates, but Gerald Wallace dug into the Celtics’ selfishness and lack of effort during the preseason. Wallace, a well-established veteran, had to play hard to find his way in the NBA, so he knows what it takes to succeed in the league. And when Boston wasn’t showing…

  16. Monday And-1 Links: Luke Walton wants another shot in NBA

    Oct 21, 2013, 8:59 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Luke Walton

    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. • Luke Walton spent most of last season on the Cleveland bench (he got…

  17. Paul Pierce doesn’t want Deron Williams to return until he’s 100 percent

    Oct 20, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    Deron Williams

    The plan all along was for Deron Williams to miss the majority of the preseason for the Nets after suffering a sprained ankle, but to be ready to go by the time the regular season begins on October 30. But Williams has been slow to recover, and after dealing with ankle issues that limited him…

  18. Nets coach Kidd confirms Pierce and Garnett won’t play preseason game in Boston

    Oct 19, 2013, 5:02 PM EST

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    The Nets face the Celtics in Boston on Wednesday in what is one of two remaining preseason games on the team’s schedule. But Jason Kidd won’t be using it to get a look at some of his better lineups in action a week before the regular season begins, because two of his starters will be…

  19. Jason Kidd reached out to Nets about becoming head coach, not the other way around

    Oct 19, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    NBA Draft Basketball

    The Nets hired Jason Kidd as a rookie head coach this summer, less than 10 days after his retirement from a Hall of Fame career that lasted 19 seasons. Brooklyn’s front office wasn’t exactly camped out on Kidd’s doorstep, however, waiting to pounce once he technically became available. No, it was Kidd who reached out…

  20. Garnett fires back at LeBron, says to mind his own business

    Oct 18, 2013, 10:50 AM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    We may actually have a little Heat/Nets rivalry brewing. Preseason talk matters usually matters about as much as preseason games, but the tension built up in years past between LeBron James and Kevin Garnett as led to a few shots across the bow this preseason. That could lead to some actual drama during the regular…

  21. Paul Pierce commits the preseason hard foul against LeBron James (VIDEO)

    Oct 18, 2013, 12:29 AM EST

    Paul Pierce

    In case you were wondering if the Nets, now with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett in the fold, would be taking on any portion of the Celtics’ past rivalry with the Miami Heat, we saw in Thursday’s preseason game in Brooklyn that the answer was a resounding “yes.” In addition to the Nets making sure…

  22. Even if they could, should the Lakers go after ‘Melo to pair with Kobe, Nash? No.

    Oct 17, 2013, 7:15 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

    We start this exercise in the hypothetical with this grounded in reality caveat — very few people around the league think Carmelo Anthony is leaving New York next summer as a free agent. Yes, he certainly will opt out of his current deal as he told the New York Observer, and anything can happen in…

  23. Andrei Kirilenko has missed two straight games with back spasms

    Oct 17, 2013, 1:41 PM EST

    Andrei Kirilenko

    When the Brooklyn Nets got Andrei Kirilenko this summer (at $3.2 million, which is a whole different issue) it was a brilliant pickup. There is no doubt if healthy the Nets starting five is very dangerous, but AK-47 gives them some quality depth along the front line to rest the older legs of Kevin Garnett.…

  24. LeBron, Wade call out former Celtics who dissed Ray Allen then left Boston themselves

    Oct 17, 2013, 1:03 PM EST

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    One year ago at this time the story we were all sick of was the “feud” between Ray Allen and his former teammates on the Boston Celtics. Allen didn’t feel respected or part of the Celtics plans (Avery Bradley had taken his starting job) and so he took less money to bolt for Miami. He…

  25. PBT Roundtable: Who is poised for a breakout season?

    Oct 16, 2013, 1:17 PM EST

    John Henson

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Which player do you expect to have a breakout season? Kurt Helin: After spending an entire summer pumping up Toronto’s Jonas Valanciunas, I’ll go with……
