  2. Video: Perry Jones III throws it down on Tyrus Thomas

    2012 NBA Draft

    In three years, we may look back and say Perry Jones III was the steal of the 2012 draft. Nobody questioned his physical gifts, but plenty of scouts questioned his desire, toughness and basketball IQ. If you watched his games at Baylor you saw flashes of what he can do physically — like the dunk…

  3. NBA Season Preview: Oklahoma City Thunder

    Oct 8, 2012, 10:49 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook celebrates with small forward Kevin Durant during their NBA basketball game against Chicago Bulls in Oklahoma City

    Last season: So freaking close. The Thunder beat the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the 2012 NBA Finals in Oklahoma City by 11 points. A double-digit victory over he mighty triumverate. It was their fifth win in a row and they looked, as teams do when the win by double-digits, like the superior team…

  4. After the dust has settled, 25 observations from the NBA draft

    Jun 30, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    2012 NBA Draft

    25 thoughts, observations, and wisecracks about the 2012 NBA Draft, now that there’s been some time to see the whole board.   1. I spent two months talking myself into the idea that Tyshawn Taylor was a first round pick because I was worried I was being overly harsh on his decision making late in…

  5. NBA Draft recap: Three winners. Three losers.

    Jun 29, 2012, 8:50 AM EDT

    NBA prospect Davis from the University of Kentucky tries on his cap after being selected by the Hornets as the first overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft in Newark

    Let’s be honest — we don’t know who the winners and losers from this draft are. We will not know for a three to five years. We should be rating the 2009 NBA Draft now (Clippers and Thunder are your winners, the Grizzlies and Hasheem Thabeet are your losers) not the one that happened last…

  7. Report: Baylor’s Perry Jones may fall in draft due to knee injury

    Jun 28, 2012, 10:24 AM EDT

    Perry Jones

    Perry Jones seemed to be sliding down draft boards in recent weeks, but we all attributed that to the risks that come with taking him — he has the physical gifts to match anyone in this draft but he didn’t show them consistently on the court. There are questions about his drive, his commitment, his…

  8. Davis heads list of NBA Draft night green room invitees

    Jun 26, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    It means nothing, really. Being in the green room doesn’t impact your draft status. All it really says is that a very button down league that doesn’t want embarrassment is convinced these guys will go in the lottery. Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress leaked the list of names of guys who got invited to the NBA…

  9. Three potential NBA Draft busts (but we hope not)

    Jun 25, 2012, 4:24 PM EDT

    West Virginia v Connecticut

    I hate the idea of calling a guy a bust before the draft. You simply can’t say a guy will not pan out before he steps on the court for even a Summer League game. Let alone for an NBA game. Some guys rise to the challenge of stiffer competition. Some guys take a few…

  10. Three guys who could be the surprise second best player in this draft

    Jun 23, 2012, 6:12 PM EDT

    Uconn's Drummond fights for the ball as Syracuse's C.J. Fair and Fab Melo defend during their game at the 2012 Big East men's NCAA college basketball tournament at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Make no mistake, this is the Anthony Davis draft. He is the franchise player, the guy who can be a top 10 player in the league, the guy you build a contender around, the guy people pay to see. The Hornets have literally won the lottery. After that there is a consensus of guys going…

  14. Players invited to NBA Draft Combine named

    May 23, 2012, 9:45 AM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    Sixty guys with a dream. The names for the NBA Draft Combine to take place in Chicago have been released. These are the guys who will be measured, weighed and in most cases put through drills to test their speed, agility and shooting. I say in most cases because, like the NFL draft combine, some…

  16. Full list of underclassmen who declared for NBA draft

    May 3, 2012, 2:59 PM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    There were no real last minute surprises when the NBA released its list of the 49 underclassmen from colleges who made themselves eligible for the NBA draft (17 international players also declared, we’ll look at them later). We know the big names coming out because they are ready — hello Anthony Davis — but the…

  17. Report: Baylor’s Perry Jones III to declare for NBA draft

    Apr 9, 2012, 3:07 PM EDT

    Baylor Bears' Jones drives into Kentucky Wildcats' Miller during the second half of their men's NCAA South Regional basketball game in Atlanta

    This was another expected announcement — Baylor’s Perry Jones III is headed to the NBA, according to CollegeBasketballTalk (via CBSSport.com’s Jeff Goodman). But this is the kind of player that scares NBA general managers because he feels boom or bust. ESPN’s Chad Ford put it well once: “A” game and a “C” motor. That said…
