  1. Like your 4-year-old, Kevin Durant will not eat his greens

    Aug 31, 2012, 2:35 PM EST

    West Team's Kevin Durant of Oklahoma Cit

    You hear a lot of NBA players talk about a transformation in their diet as they age in the league — they come in being able to eat just about anything and go out and perform. But about their mid- to late-20s, they start to realize they need to take better care of their bodies…

  2. Nets exploring adding Eddy Curry, Josh Childress among others

    Aug 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    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…

  3. A quick look at your top free agents for 2013 (as of now)

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:50 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    After a summer of rebuilding and trying to put a team together, there are a few teams out there that are clearly looking at next summer as the chance to remake their lineup. Yes, we’re looking at you, Dallas. But you are not alone. So, who are next summer’s big potential free agents? Here is…

  4. The Inbounds: How the West will almost-but-not-actually be won

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:52 PM EST

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    Parity has become something of a naughty word around intelligent conversation about the NBA. Because parity is another word for “competitive balance” and that was the word the owners and league used to justify killing off 20 percent of the season last year. (When in truth the hard cap wouldn’t help a damn bit with…

  5. Who will be most drama-filled, soap opera team next season?

    Aug 28, 2012, 2:17 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v New York Knicks

    Where will the soap opera be next NBA season? Certainly the Lakers will be in the spotlight and every twitch will be magnified after the additions of Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. But it’s not the soap opera some expect — this is not going to be a Kobe vs. Shaq part deux. Dwight Howard…

  6. Doug Collins wants Spencer Hawes to be like Pau Gasol

    Aug 28, 2012, 11:17 AM EST

    Spencer Hawes, Brandon Bass

    Before back and Achilles injuries sidelined him, Spencer Hawes was the key to the Sixers offense last season. It wasn’t about the points, it was his passing that got the ball moving side-to-side against the defense and created good looks for others. Without him the offense stagnated some, he was not the same player upon…

  7. Doug Collins wants to coach 4-5 more years, and Olympics

    Aug 27, 2012, 11:40 AM EST

    Doug Collins, Lou Williams

    Doug Collins name keeps coming up in the coaching search for Team USA, to replace Mike Krzyzewski. Collins name draws headlines but he is well behind in this race. The front-runner should be Gregg Popovich — but there are issues to be worked over with USA Basketball President Jerry Colangelo — and behind him the…

  8. The Inbounds: Houston, We Have A Solution

    Aug 24, 2012, 5:54 PM EST

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    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. Enjoy. Maybe no team will have the kind of predicted-win variance from fans and experts this season than the Houston Rockets.…

  9. Winderman: CBA rules grind NBA player movement to a halt

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:23 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Donte Greene to the Nets, Martell Webster to the Wizards . . . If it seems like the NBA is in a bit of a personnel limbo, it is because, well, it is. For as much as the floodgates open with the July start of free agency, and for as much as things can change…

  10. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  11. The Inbounds: The unfathomable jump Jeff Green needs

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    Jeff Green

    I’ve pretty much always been on the side that thinks Jeff Green can develop into a capable NBA player. In Oklahoma City, he was “the other guy” drafted with Durant, part of the central core. His role was nebulous, falling into that generic “forward” category. It took a while for the debate to start over…

  12. What is a fair contract offer for Stephen Curry right now?

    Aug 22, 2012, 4:51 PM EST

    nba-lockout-curry

    The other day we brought you the news that while Stephen Curry is eligible for an extension to his rookie deal right now, he likely will go into next summer a restricted free agent where he and the Warriors will let the market set his value (Golden State has the right to match any offer).…

  13. Cuban says the Mavericks almost traded for Kobe in 2007

    Aug 22, 2012, 8:38 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    The summer of 2007 was the summer of Kobe Bryant’s discontent. Since the Lakers had traded Shaquille O’Neal they had not put new pieces around Kobe that could help win a title, and Kobe let the world know. He asked for a trade, he pressured management, he ripped Andrew Bynum to random guys with a…

  14. Lakers GM Kupchak didn’t think Howard trade would happen, either

    Aug 21, 2012, 12:30 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Mitch Kupchak

    You think you were frustrated during the Dwightmare… The Lakers wanted to land Dwight Howard — it was the one guy they would move Andrew Bynum to get and see it as an upgrade, and Bynum’s value might never be higher — so they were in. They talked to Rob Hennigan (the young Orland GM)…

  15. Watch the top plays from Howard, Bynum, Iguodala

    Aug 20, 2012, 8:48 PM EST

    Andre Iguodala

    Fans in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Denver are pumped for next season after the big four-team Dwight Howard trade. As they should be. their teams got a lot more interesting. And better. Magic fans… I’d recommend watching a lot of college ball next season. Get your scouting in early. So to get you guys more…

  16. The 76ers roster could see a lot more shakeups

    Aug 20, 2012, 4:03 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Philadelphia has gone another direction — Andre Iguodala is out, Andrew Bynum is in as the new face of the franchise. The young, anchor center who has Philly talking about something other than the Eagles. Well, for five minutes. The idea is to sell hope in Philly and build on a young core of Bynum,…

  17. Nuggets GM also says he wants to sign Lawson to new deal

    Aug 17, 2012, 12:24 PM EST

    Ty Lawson

    Part of the talk at the “hello Denver, meet Andre Iguodala” press conference on Thursday involved Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri and Iguodala both saying they would be willing to talk about a contract extension. Words like that are nice, we’ll see where it goes. But another note out of the Denver Post talks about the…

  18. Andre Iguodala is interested in a future with the Nuggets

    Aug 16, 2012, 9:25 PM EST

    Andre Iguodala

    When you trade for a guy on an expiring contract, there’s always the risk that, much like a date after the first night out, they won’t see a future with you. There’s still a feeling of rejection when someone says they prefer the company of others to your exclusive company. You have to worry about…

  19. Andrew Bynum raises the stakes for Holiday, Turner

    Aug 16, 2012, 2:45 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bynum is just one piece. I like that piece, I like the direction the 76ers are going. But as the double teams start loading up on Bynum fast and he gets better at passing out of them (a skill he needs to work on) it just puts more pressure on everyone else. The other…

  20. Philly goes big with Bynum, which worries Doc Rivers (a little)

    Aug 16, 2012, 7:55 AM EST

    Doug Collins on Wednesday told a great story that illustrates perfectly just what Andrew Bynum can mean to Philadelphia. Collins was in London calling basketball games for NBC when the Dwight Howard trade that brought Bynum to the Sixers went down. Collins and NBC Olympics hoops studio analyst Doc Rivers — old friends from around…

  21. What was in Rockets offer for Dwight Howard depends on whom you ask

    Aug 15, 2012, 10:13 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Rob Hennigan, the Orlando Magic’s new on the job general manager, and the entire Magic organization is taking a lot of incoming fire — that’s all you got for Dwight Howard? What they got in a four-team deal that landed Howard with the Lakers was a quality wing in Arron Afflalo, veteran forwards Al Harrington…

  22. The Inbounds: Tonight the part of “the man” will be played by Andrew Bynum

    Aug 15, 2012, 6:47 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    At the introductory press conference for Andrew Bynum to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, Bynum told the fans and media the following in response to a question about the increased load he’s likely to bear next season. “It’s going to be a lot more exciting and a lot more fun to know that everything’s going…

  23. Iguodala is excited, says all the right things about joining Denver

    Aug 15, 2012, 1:18 AM EST

    Spain v USA Iguodala

    You have to remember that whenever you read the comments from an NBA player about the new team he is joining, it’s pretty much the tone of what you would tell your mom after you got a job you really wanted. Just with more clichés. What Andre Iguodala said about joining the Nuggets to the…

  24. On the amazing ripple effects of the 2004 Shaq Trade

    Aug 14, 2012, 9:42 PM EST

    Kobe Shaquille O'Neal Lakers

    Remember the Summer of 2004? The Lakers, who came into the season with Gary Payton, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, and Shaq making up 80% of their starting 5, had just lost a “gentlemen’s sweep” to the Detroit Pistons. Kobe Bryant was a free agent. Shaq still had that pre-max monster of a deal, and he…

  25. One trade to watch for: Philly moving a big man (not Bynum)

    Aug 14, 2012, 10:22 AM EST

    Spencer Hawes

    Philadelphia had their big man rotation set. Coach Doug Collins said Kwame Brown was going to be the starter. (Why? Because he felt his blood pressure was too low.), There were also Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen on the roster to play the five, plus the Sixers just drafted 6’11” power forward Arnett Moultrie. But…
