    Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York

    It’s list season in the NBA — there is not much to write about, so everyone seems to be doing a list of some kind. Counting down the game’s best players, for example. But Sean Deveney at the Sporting News went a different way and asked “who has the worst contracs in the NBA? One…

    Sep 12, 2012, 11:54 AM EDT

    james-harden

    When Oklahoma City GM Sam Presti was talking James Harden’s contract recently, he sounded a lot like your boss before he started talking about everyone taking furlough days — “we have some inherent challenges that we face as an organization” and that kind of thing. Which is because every dollar they can get Harden to…

  5. Despite non-guaranteed contracts, expect Blatche, Childress to make Nets

    Sep 12, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Jchildress

    Usually teams go young, looking at rookies with potential to round out their final couple roster spots. They Nets got potential but they went another direction — they snatched up two athletic players coming off contracts they did not live up to, two guys amnestied by their former teams. Josh Childress and Andray Blatche are…

    Sep 11, 2012, 12:34 PM EDT

    Kris Humphries reality-show marriage to Kim Kardashian was a joke. Not really a funny one. But some people are laughing at the Nets power forward.

  13. How good are the Nets? Coach admits not a contender.

    Sep 5, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    The Brooklyn Nets are going to be one of the more interesting teams to watch come together next season. They were awful, injury plagued and seemingly unmotivated last season in Jersey, but now they have a new home in Brooklyn and a new roster — Joe Johnson has been added to a re-signed Deron Williams,…

  14. Nets may be in Brooklyn, but players still living in Jersey

    Sep 4, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    BrooklynBridgeSunsetHDRSML

    The Brooklyn Nets have a very flashy new building in Brooklyn. Well, it looks a little rusty on the outside, but that’s intentional. Inside it’s as state of the art as arenas get now, according to all reports. And it is set up with plenty of revenue-generating luxury boxes, then more exclusive Jay-Z designed suites.…

    Sep 4, 2012, 1:27 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah,

    For the past two regular seasons, the Chicago Bulls were the best team in the East. They were the top seed. But they played much of the season in their top gear — especially on defense — which overwhelmed opponents but left questions about whether they could step it up in the playoffs. We’ll never…

    For a guy known for his oratory skills, this Barack Obama shot at Mitt Romney looks like an Andrew Bynum three pointer.

    Sep 3, 2012, 12:48 AM EDT

    Vitoria's Bosnian forward Mirza Teletovi

    When the Nets signed Mirza Teletovic this summer, most of America shrugged. If they noticed at all. But followers of international basketball applauded the move. Teletovic is a stretch four with a very quick release, but also a mean streak that has him defending hard and banging bodies inside. That shot tearing up EuroBasket qualifying…

    Sep 1, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

But kind of snuck under…

    When Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and the rest of the Brooklyn Nets go to practice they have to head out the Lincoln Tunnel on the 495 West toward East Rutherford, New Jersey.

    Aug 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Eddy Curry poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    At this point, you have to wonder if the Nets will be sad when they have no more roster spots to spend money on. Yahoo Sports reports that the Nets are considering several options for their final two available roster spots including… Eddy Curry. The Nets could use Curry. They’re not particularly loaded down low…

    The 2012-2013 NBA D-League schedule will be announced Thursday to little fanfare and by little fanfare I mean no attention whatsoever. It will be a footnote passed along at the end of columns, random bits tweeted here and there. It will not drive traffic, move the needle, or sell tickets, outside of the occasionally rabid…

    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…

    Last week was the Rookie Transition Program, which is where the league brings in all its first-year players (and this time second-year players, too, as there was no program after the lockout) and tells them all about the friends and family who are going to try and leech their money, women who are going to…
