  1. Tuesday And-1 Links: Re-imagining the 2010 NBA draft

    Aug 27, 2013, 7:28 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    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 pundits love mock outrage over Miley Cyrus (you know, if you don’t…

  2. Heat, Thunder have smallest roster turnover this summer

    Aug 27, 2013, 3:28 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James and teammates wait to take the court against the Spurs during the second half in Game 6 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    Roster consistency is a good thing. Look at the final four teams left standing in the NBA last season — Miami, Indiana, Memphis and San Antonio. Every one of them is consistent. You have to make some moves to get the talent you need, but after that there is really something to be said for…

  3. Bucks’ Sanders says he’s working on not getting so many technicals

    Aug 27, 2013, 11:54 AM EDT

    Marquis Daniels, Larry Sanders

    Larry Sanders is a leader for the Bucks — not just in the he got a $44 million contract and is a building block of the team sense — but he was already one of the league leaders in one category last season. Well, a couple categories, but right now we are not talking just…

  4. Dirk Nowitzki loves him some game day (VIDEO)

    Aug 26, 2013, 1:07 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki reacts to a play during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Utah

    This is brilliant. Most ads trying to get you to renew your season tickets (or buy them in the first place) are highlight packages — don’t miss out on Kobe or Lebron or O.J. Mayo or whatever. Dallas went another direction, spoofing one of the GEICO ads, with Dirk Nowitzki in the role of the…

  5. Another veteran big out on the market, Chris Wilcox

    Aug 26, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Boston Celtics

    Around this time of year — late August, early September — is when teams fill out the end of the roster. It’s when Chris Wilcox got a call… Except will he this year? Last season in Boston he was solid in a limited role — 4.2 points and 3 rebounds a game in about 13.6…

  6. Larry Sanders is the unfortunate victim of a misspelled tattoo (PHOTO)

    Aug 25, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    Larry Sanders just signed a four year, $44 million extension with the Milwaukee Bucks, so he can afford to take care of mistakes like these. Sanders apparently was victimized by a semi-illiterate tattoo artist, who inked the word “recieve” onto one of his arms. The correct spelling, obviously, is “receive.” That’s a shame. Sanders had…

  7. People can’t really pronounce Giannis Antetokounmpo’s name in Greece, either

    Aug 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Can you say Giannis Antetokounmpo? by sport24tv We showed you Bucks fans struggling with the pronunciation of the team’s first round draft pick, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and given the unfamiliar collection of letters that comprise his last name, this was the expected outcome of this fun little exercise. But people from Greece, where Giannis is from, should…

  8. Former Bucks assistant says Larry Sanders didn’t bring it every night

    Aug 22, 2013, 3:37 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    During the playoffs last season, when the overmatched Milwaukee Bucks were being swept by the Heat, Larry Sanders expressed frustration that some of the Bucks veterans were playing selfish basketball — and we’re looking at you, Monta Ellis — and that was killing the team. Ellis and Sanders almost came to blows in the locker…

  10. Larry Sanders makes it official, signs four-year extension with Bucks

    Aug 20, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    via Instagram

    The Milwaukee Bucks are rebuilding around Larry Sanders. Well, not completely, they plan on getting some guys to go around him (they are not full on “woeful for Wiggins” but they are lottery bound) but the shot blocking big man will be at their core. We told you before the two sides reached a four-year,…

  11. How do you pronounce Giannis Antetokounmpo? Don’t ask Bucks fans (video)

    Aug 19, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is not a difficult name to pronounce. It sounds exactly how it’s spelled. Somehow – and I really don’t understand how this happened – Milwaukee fans struggled hilariously to say the name of the Bucks’ latest first-round pick (hat tip: Jeremy Schmidt of Bucksketball): Antetokounmpo, a point forward the from Greece who Milwaukee…

  12. Report: Bucks reach four-year extension with Larry Sanders

    Aug 16, 2013, 1:14 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    The Milwaukee Bucks are rebuilding in the wake of the failed Brandon Jennings/Monta Ellis experiment. But they have one piece that can serve as a cornerstone in whatever is being built — Larry Sanders. The fourth-year player out of Virginia Commonwealth had a breakout season last year and is one of the better defensive anchor…

  13. Pistons reveal ‘Motor City’ alternate uniforms

    Aug 14, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    motorcityfront

    The Pistons have worn red, white and blue uniforms for years and years. It’s become a classic look for one of the NBA’s flagship franchises. Aside from a brief – and misguided – foray into teal during the 90s, the Pistons have remained true to that color scheme, a point of pride for Detroit fans.…

  14. Hawks draft pick Lucas Nogueira to play in Spain next season

    Aug 12, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    nogueira hawks

    It was always a possibility that the player the Hawks selected with the 16th overall pick in this year’s draft, Lucas Nogueira, would spend a season developing overseas, and in fact, he told us as much back in June at adidas Eurocamp. Given his strong showing at Summer League in Las Vegas, however, along with the…

  15. Lakers’ Chris Kaman wasn’t a fit with Mavs, according to Mark Cuban

    Aug 11, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    The Los Angeles Lakers looked like they made a pretty good deal when they were able to add Chris Kaman for the taxpayer’s mid-level exception of just $3.1 million for the upcoming season. The Lakers needed a big that could come in, know his role and complement Pau Gasol in the frontcourt — but that’s…

  16. Reminder: Andre Drummond dominated Orlando Summer League (VIDEO)

    Aug 9, 2013, 9:54 AM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    The Detroit Pistons are going to be interesting next season, and not just because they added Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings. They have Andre Drummond, who if he had been healthy all season would have been in the Rookie of the Year conversation (he wouldn’t have beaten out Damian Lillard, but it would have been…

  17. Report: Bucks, Larry Sanders close to contract extension

    Aug 8, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    A lot of fans may not have seen it because it was happening in Milwaukee, but Larry Sanders has become one of the best shot blocking bigs in the NBA (2.8 per game last season, second in the NBA). On a team where the perimeter defenders played like matadors much of the time, his value…

  18. Don’t say “tanking,” Bucks say they are going “younger”

    Aug 7, 2013, 5:51 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Tanking is a dirty word around the NBA. The reason is it implies a lack of effort or desire, and no team wants that reputation (or to establish that culture). But it’s also a matter of semantics — you and I might well argue that a team that lets all its good talent walk to…

  19. Pistons still looking for one more backup big man

    Aug 7, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

    Joe Dumars

    Detroit has potentially one of the best front lines in the NBA — Andre Drummond at the five, Greg Monroe at the four and Josh Smith at the three. That’s a bunch of guys who can score at a high rate, once they get inside five feet from the rim. But the team could use…

  20. Ten NBA must-watch games this season

    Aug 6, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The NBA schedule is out and it’s a little like Christmas Day (unless you’re a beat reporter, then it’s explain to your wife how much you’ll be gone day, which is a lot less fun). Today is the day you can really start to taste the matchups that are coming. There are more good storylines…

  21. Brandon Jennings says Pistons could become Lob City, pledges to change his game

    Aug 6, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars

    As he sat down for his new conference to introduce Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars muttered, “Oh my god.” I don’t know what Dumars was referring to at that moment, but I cant think of a better way to describe the experiment he’s conducting with the Pistons. Jennings at point guard with Josh Smith, Greg Monroe…

  22. Report: Knicks to open the season at home against Bucks

    Aug 5, 2013, 9:35 PM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Boston Celtics in the first quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    This is the final schedule leak you’ll receive from us, so soak it up in all of its August glory. The New York Knicks will open the season at home against the rebuilding Milwaukee Bucks, according to a report from Marc Berman of the New York Post. While many teams in big markets have marquee…

  23. Report: Pistons sign Louisville PG Peyton Siva

    Aug 5, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    Peyton Siva, Phil Pressey

    Peyton Siva had a good NBA Summer League down in Orlando — he showed the skills that helped him lead Louisville to the national championship. He was a good floor general, not one with a great jump shot but a guy who just seemed to make plays when they were needed. Plus he can defend.…

  24. Larry Sanders gets dunked on. By his toddler. Twice. (VIDEO)

    Aug 5, 2013, 10:58 AM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    That’s cute. Larry Sanders has emerged as one of the better rim-protecting centers in the league, which last year playing with a Brandon Jennings/Monta Ellis backcourt in Milwaukee meant he had a lot of work to do. He turned away a lot of shots. But he can get dunked on and his toddler proves it.…

  25. Report: Pistons still have interest in Rajon Rondo, even after acquiring Brandon Jennings

    Aug 4, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings

    The Pistons were reportedly one of the first teams in line to talk with the Celtics about a potential deal for Rajon Rondo, once Boston entered a full-fledged rebuild by sending Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets. Whether due to the offers being low while Rondo still rehabs from a torn ACL injury,…
