  1. Will Jared Dudley step into the leadership vacuum in Phoenix?

    Sep 7, 2012, 4:35 PM EST

    Jared Dudley

    Who is the locker room leader of the Phoenix Suns? Steve Nash and his quiet leader role has gone to a rival (where he will play good cop to Kobe Bryant’s bad cop). Veteran Grant Hill has gone to Los Angeles as well, just to the team in red and white. Much of the roster…

  2. Chauncey Billups says he’s “way ahead of schedule”

    Sep 7, 2012, 9:57 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    When Chauncey Billups tore his Achilles’ last February at age 35, it felt like it might be the end of a fantastic career. But if one guy had the discipline and drive to return, it was Billups. If he was going to fight his way back, the low-end estimates for recovery from that injury of…

  3. The Inbounds: Rajon Rondo and a game of art not science

    Sep 6, 2012, 12:40 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Over Labor Day, I had an opportunity to share a beach house with both a scientist and an artist. (Don’t get jealous, we were pretty much living off our friends’ generosity, it’s not like I’m skipping off to the Hamptons every other weekend.) A social situation involving people on opposite ends of the conceptual spectrum, particularly in…

  4. Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger promises to stay tattoo free

    Sep 5, 2012, 10:17 AM EST

    Jared Sullinger, Andre Drummond

    While they may not be the majority there are NBA players — big name NBA players — who do not have tattoos. Dwyane Wade, Steve Nash, Ray Allen, Grant Hill, Jeremy Lin, to name a few. And you can add Jared Sullinger to the list. The Celtics rookie tells Jessica Camerato at CSNNE.com that he…

  6. Clippers promote Gary Sacks, basically make him GM

    Sep 4, 2012, 6:11 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul puts his arm around teammate Griffin during NBA basketball game against the Memphis Grizzlies in Los Angeles

    Blake Griffin has gotten what he wanted. As had been rumored, the Clippers have promoted from within, announcing that 19-year Clipper veteran Gary Sacks is the new Vice President of Basketball Operations. So, while he is not formally the general manager, he is in practice the general manager. “Gary has been a valuable and loyal…

  7. There’s going to be another NBA-player-heavy rap album. Make room for the Grammies.

    Sep 2, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith reacts during the final moments of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Yesterday we shared with you how Juwan Howard was making his rap album. It would appear that he is not alone in this endeavor. IAmAGM.com reports on a new album that dare we say brings back memories of “B-Ball’s Best Kept Secret.” The rap album is titled, “Full Court Press Vol. 1.” NBA players that…

  8. Video: Blake Griffin says he wants to win every All-Star competition, ever, this year

    Aug 30, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    See, you don’t have to hate Blake Griffin, everyone! He’s likeable! See! “Three-point contest… Rising Stars Challenge— half-time shows…” That got me thinking. How would Blake Griffin win a halftime show? I’m thinking that he’d have to pull off the old spinning plates on his nose, head, and hands trick, while dunking. Maybe he can…

  9. A quick look at your top free agents for 2013 (as of now)

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    After a summer of rebuilding and trying to put a team together, there are a few teams out there that are clearly looking at next summer as the chance to remake their lineup. Yes, we’re looking at you, Dallas. But you are not alone. So, who are next summer’s big potential free agents? Here is…

  10. Chalmers: I’m on “front end of the top 10” point guards

    Aug 29, 2012, 2:27 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Mario Chalmers has never lacked for confidence. That has paid off for the Kansas Jayhawks when he sank the NCAA title-winning shot. It has paid off for the Miami Heat, giving them another guy who doesn’t fear the big shot at the end of games. But with that confidence can come the belief that you…

  11. The Inbounds: How the West will almost-but-not-actually be won

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:52 PM EST

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    Parity has become something of a naughty word around intelligent conversation about the NBA. Because parity is another word for “competitive balance” and that was the word the owners and league used to justify killing off 20 percent of the season last year. (When in truth the hard cap wouldn’t help a damn bit with…

  12. Piston’s Jerebko tweaks ankle playing for Sweden; will be fine

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:43 PM EST

    Jerebko_Jonas

    If you listened to every general manager and owner interviewed after the Olympics about how their star players did, the quotes pretty much all went “it’s great that they won and it’s even better that they didn’t get injured.” Well, the Clippers didn’t say that, what with Blake Griffin (knee) and Chris Paul (thumb) needing…

  13. Blake Griffin thinks Clippers should hire in-house for GM

    Aug 28, 2012, 10:51 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    The Clippers have gone through this summer without a general manager since Neil Olshey took the pay raise in Portland — and done pretty well for themselves. They made the obvious move and gave Blake Griffin a max extension. They landed Jamal Crawford and Grant Hill to give them a deeper bench and some veteran…

  14. Winderman: NBA’s new fiscal reality has veterans considering minimums

    Aug 28, 2012, 9:08 PM EST

    Andray Blatche

    More than 20 teams still have all or part of their mid-level exception, be it the full $5 million, the $3.1 million taxpayer version or the $2.6 million post-cap-space variety. More than 10 still can put their $2 million bi-annual exception into play. And yet, now a month from the start of training camps, veterans…

  16. Carmelo Anthony says Knicks have no rivalry with Nets. Yet.

    Aug 27, 2012, 10:38 AM EST

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates in the win over Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    The New York Knicks will open the NBA season by heading over the bridge to Brooklyn and helping the Nets christen their new home. Knicks vs. Nets. Brooklyn vs. Manhattan. A battle for New York. A real rivalry… Not yet, says Carmelo Anthony. Speaking at a camp at St. Johns, the Knicks leader and gold…

  17. Blake Griffin says he’s back at 100 percent

    Aug 25, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    When Blake Griffin went down with a knee injury, his second serious knee injury of his career, during Team USA practice, the jokes were pretty predictable. I’m pretty sure “Clippers Curse” was trending in parts of the world. There’s a certain expectation that whatever can go wrong will go wrong for “the other L.A. team.”…

  18. The Inbounds: Houston, We Have A Solution

    Aug 24, 2012, 5:54 PM EST

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Maybe no team will have the kind of predicted-win variance from fans and experts this season than the Houston Rockets.…

  19. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  20. Clippers not expecting Chauncey Billups back until November

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:15 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups says he wants to be ready for the start of the season. But the Clippers are not really counting on the 36-year-old bouncing back from an Achilles injury that fast. In a report discussing how the Clippers will start this season trying to play catch up due to injury, Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles…

  22. Chris Paul out eight weeks after thumb surgery, likely misses start of camp

    Aug 21, 2012, 5:03 PM EST

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    Chris Paul injured his thumb early on in USA Basketball training camp for the Olympics, while the team was still in Las Vegas. It held him up for a few days, but he came back and played well — Paul was huge in the second half of the USA’s gold medal winning game over Spain.…

  23. Here are your top-10 NBA highest-paid players for 2012-13

    Aug 21, 2012, 3:50 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    The NBA salaries are basically set for next season, minus a few tweaks for late pickups and drops. While there are a few good players still out there as free agents, said players are discovering right now the market is pretty dry. I hope they all like the veteran minimum. So who is going to…

  24. Anthony Davis says Olympics made him more confident

    Aug 21, 2012, 1:51 PM EST

    Anthony Davis

    Anthony Davis pretty much fell backwards on to the London Olympic team. Jerry Colangelo and Mike Krzyzewski like him as a prospect, but it took injuries to Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin (his in training camp) for Team USA to get desperate enough to grab the No. 1 overall pick of the Hornets.…

  25. Clippers got better this summer, yet in L.A. it’s same old story (all Lakers)

    Aug 21, 2012, 8:59 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers are a legitimately good team. They went 40-26 last season, one game back of the Pacific Division winning Los Angeles Lakers. Then this summer they went out and added Lamar Odom, Grant Hill and Jamal Crawford. They have the best point guard in the game in Chris Paul — a guy you can…
