    Bryant and James of Team USA react during their men's exhibition basketball game against Team Argentina ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games at Palau Sant Jordi arena in Barcelona

    It’s extremely difficult to measure what winning a gold medal does for a player, outside of you know, giving them the actual object and putting a line on a resume. When most people think Michael Jordan, 99 percent of them don’t think “Olympic Gold Medalist.” They think six-time NBA champion, the Greatest of all Time,…

    Jul 26, 2012, 2:11 PM EST

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Let us hope it doesn’t come to this. Not because I care if Dallas lands Dwight Howard or not but because it would mean 11 more months of this drama. None of us need that. Howard has made it clear that he wants to be traded and where he wants to be traded. And while…

    team-usa-sleeping

    It started with the Clippers last year, who made a game of taking photos of guys sleeping on planes. It spread around the league, the “#gotem” photos on twitter were the rage. NBA players travel a lot at odd hours and so sleeping on planes is just part of the gig, but suddenly taking their…

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    Rule No. 1 once you get a new job — make friends with the key employee. That’s what C.J. Watson kind of tried to do. He has left the Chicago Bulls for a new deal with the Brooklyn Nets. He’s going from backing up Derrick Rose to backing up Deron Williams. And at his introductory…

    Kobe Bryant of the US looks on during an

    Against Spain on Tuesday, or when Team USA opens Olympic play against France Sunday, watch Kobe Bryant work in the offense.

    Team USA was back in Barcelona, wearing 1992 Dream Team throwback jerseys, which led to another round of the Dream Team vs. 2012 team talk. But the 2012 version of Team USA having to work for an 86-80 win Sunday over Argentina in an Olympics tune-up shows why comparing the two eras is hard (and…

    Jul 22, 2012, 11:17 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Brandon Roy‘s trip back to basketball relevance is a process. It won’t come over night and its apex is somewhere dramatically short of the career ceiling he had as an NBA star, which would have included the Hall of Fame. Now it’s more “capable role player who can contribute,” but there are still steps to…

    Jul 18, 2012, 2:06 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    Rajon Rondo has never been lacking in self-confidence. A steady jumpshot? Yes. But not self-confidence.

    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.
