  1. Nets to try and get Disabled Player Exception for Lopez, add player to roster

    Dec 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets are capped out and have 15 guys on the roster — they cannot add another body under the NBA rules. However with Brook Lopez out for the season, they want to. Need to, really, when you consider the injury history of players on the roster. So the Nets are going to file the…

  2. Otto Porter Jr., the un-sexy prospect

    Jun 23, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Otto Porter Jr.,

    WASHINGTON — If the NBA Draft were dating, Otto Porter Jr. is the one all fathers would approve of. Dad never objects to the guy labeled “safe.” On Thursday, we’ll found out which team covets reliable over risk. The Georgetown forward can do just about everything on the basketball court. Based on league chatter, that…

  3. Kings ownership documents reveal major potential stumbling blocks for Seattle

    CORRECTION:  February 8, 2013 An earlier version of this post incorrectly referred to a May 2003 document as an addendum to the Kings’ 1992 ownership agreement.  The May 2003 document is self-described as a proposal, which, if approved, would constitute a basis for an amendment of the Kings’ partnership agreement.  The version of the May…

  4. Metta World Peace boasts Lakers want to get 73 wins

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:15 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    For the Lakers fifth offensive option (if that), Metta World Peace isn’t afraid to do the talking. We told you how he said he didn’t think anybody could get past the Lakers. We’ve shown you his latest boast-filled video. We showed you him on Yo Gabba Gabba. He’s kind of everywhere right now. Then there…

  5. Comcast-Spectacor hasn’t spoken with Kings at all, arena project barely off the ground

    georgemaloofeminem

    Unless there is more to come in the next few days, the Virginia Beach arena press conference didn’t do much to sway the overwhelming opinion that the Sacramento Kings are nowhere near moving there. There were no Maloof appearances, but president of Comcast-Spectacor Peter Luukko spoke to the Virginia Beach city council in support of…

  6. Maloofs send ex-FBI agent to snoop on local Sacramento businesses

    worried george

    During last year’s playoffs, the Maloof family sent an attorney to an Orange County Register reporter’s home to collect evidence. The evidence in question was audio of Phil Jackson comparing the embattled family to unpopular former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt. While the Maloofs may have wanted observers to believe they were merely protecting their image,…

    May 6, 2012, 10:04 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Four

    The Atlanta Hawks were able to pick up a victory in the opening game of their NBA Playoffs series against the Boston Celtics, but after watching Sunday evening’s game, it seems as though that might be the only win they post this postseason. The Celtics were able to get their offense going from the get-go…

    Hunter and Fisher of the NBA speak during news conference to reject NBA's latest offer in New York

    The polls open on Wednesday. By Friday, we will have basketball. (Well, training camps and free agency, at least.) That is the schedule for the week, according to Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated. After some marathon bargaining sessions over the weekend — 28 hours of talks over two days, a source told ProBasketballTalk — the…

  11. How does the NBA stack up to the NFL, MLB, and NHL in spending efficiency?

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Periodically, one financially inclined publication or another takes a look at the performance of professional sports teams in relation to their payroll. What typically ensues is just basic division; the outlets divide the total salary cost by the team’s wins, and then rank the teams according to their total cost per win. It’s a fun…

  12. Referees union files unfair labor practice charge against NBA

    Apr 7, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum, Leon Wood

    While we were all talking about the NBA players and owners labor strife, the referees union and league have been negotiating a deal (that deal is set to expire Sept. 1). And it has some serious tension. Like bring in the National Labor Relations Board tension. Adrian Wojnarowski has the details at Yahoo. The National…

  13. YouTube in talks to stream live NBA games

    NBA games streaming on YouTube? Just a click away from a cat playing the piano? Could happen. Google — which owns YouTube — is in talks with the NBA and other major sports leagues, according to Bloomberg.

    New Official NBA Ball Unveiled

    The NBA today fined Doc Rivers $15,000 for failing to leave the court in a “timely manner” following his ejection from the Suns game last Friday.

  15. You can’t say “NBA” in China anymore

    Dec 23, 2010, 11:25 AM EDT

    Kobe China

    Odd little story out of China today that doesn’t involve Steve Francis or Stephon Marbury for a change. The Chinese government is cracking down on “language purity” and is trying to eliminate the use of “unnecessary” English words and phrases that have become increasingly common in Chinese writing, as reported a couple clicks away at…

  16. NBA Playoffs: Cavaliers set to dominate, so enjoy the Bulls while you can

    Apr 17, 2010, 2:53 PM EDT

    What do the Chicago Bulls need to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers? A miracle. Hijinx. Steroids. Food poisoning for LeBron. Flubber. Possession by a basketball-playing demon. Stink bombs in the Cavs’ locker room. A magic lamp. Oh, and on top of all that, they need to play nearly perfect basketball from top to bottom. Honestly, if…

  17. Phoenix Suns could be next to board the D-League gravy train

    Apr 15, 2010, 1:23 PM EDT

    According to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic, the Phoenix Suns are interested in creating a new D-League team to operate out of Prescott Valley, AZ. That’s a big move in itself, and a signal of just how far the D-League has come this season. Having the resources to develop players on the minor league…

  18. With NBA Playoffs looming, Portland should have kept their heads

    Apr 10, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Portland, Oregon may not be a big fancy city, but one thing it does have is incredible basketball fans. Smart, passionate, devoted NBA basketball fans. The collective IQ at a Blazers game is probably higher than the average. But last night it plummeted to Neanderthal levels, and it’s got nothing to do with getting mad…

  19. Stern issues statement on MJ's purchase of 'Cats

    Feb 27, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    Can we interest you in a formality? Perhaps a stock, canned statement from the league pertaining to a fairly obvious development in a predictable process? It’ll go lovely on the mantle next to that Razorback bobblehead of your father’s. Yes, we do deliver. Commissioner Stern has released a statement regarding Michael Jordan’s purchase (along with…

  20. Study: Winners touch a lot. Appropriately. We think.

    Feb 23, 2010, 9:24 AM EDT
