  1. Derrick Rose says he’s been working on shooting range

    Sep 17, 2013, 11:23 AM EST

    NBA Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose acknowledges fans as he attends a promotional event as part of his Asia tour in Hong Kong

    When Derrick Rose was out with his torn ACL, Tim Hardaway — who went through the same injury as a player — said Rose needed to use the time to become a better jump shooter. Hardaway should know, he had some of his best years after he returned. Rose will be back at the start of…

  2. Cavaliers’ rookie Carrick Felix really wanted to be Tony Hawk

    Sep 12, 2013, 4:09 PM EST

    Carrick Felix

    Ask young players coming into the league who they wanted to be growing up and you get a lot of Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Michael Jordan, some Allen Iverson, some young ones say LeBron James, a few other players are mixed in there. Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Carrick Felix went another direction: Tony Hawk. He said…

  3. Damian Lillard sets goal of being All-Star

    Sep 9, 2013, 12:47 PM EST

    APTOPIX Rookie of Year Basketball

    Damian Lillard sets his goals high. Last season’s Rookie of the Year isn’t shying away from expectations — he wants to help lead the Trail Blazers to the playoffs and he wants to make the All-Star Team this year. He believes he can. That’s what Lillard said to Matt Moore of CBS’s Eye on Basketball,…

  4. Lakers’ Mike D’Antoni had ‘breakdown in communication’ with players last year

    Aug 31, 2013, 7:41 PM EST

    Antawn Jamison

    Mike D’Antoni was brought in as the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers just five games into the season last year after the team decided to part ways with Mike Brown. That apparently hurt the new coach’s relationship with his players, specifically vested veteran Antawn Jamison. Jamison played his 15th season in the league…

  5. Kobe Bryant receives most votes from rookies asked to name their favorite player in the league

    Each year when the NBA’s freshly drafted rookies gather for the offseason photo-shoot during the summer, NBA.com surveys the group to get their thoughts on the league’s current players, as well as predictions for the future of this year’s incoming class. While several topics were covered, one of the more interesting questions posed to the…

  6. Jeremy Lin says Dwight Howard ‘really likes to play pick-and-roll,’ which may be news to Dwight Howard

    Aug 25, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Houston Rockets basketball player Lin gestures during a news conference in Taipei

    Jeremy Lin started all 82 games for the Rockets last season, and managed to average 6.1 assists in 32.2 minutes per game despite the ball dominant ways of James Harden. The addition of Dwight Howard brings all kinds of new possibilities to the offense, at least on paper. That’s what Lin is counting on in…

  7. When you vote for West All-Star guards, who you going to snub?

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    When you sit down to fill out your All-Star ballot this year (or you may not sit down, you can do it from your phone while standing) who are you going to select as the starting guards in the West? Are you going to take Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant, like last year? Smart money…

  9. Lakers GM said he hopes to bring back Kobe and Gasol next summer

    Aug 16, 2013, 12:31 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Four

    This is not what Lakers fans generally envision. The idea is that after this season the Lakers only have Steve Nash, Robert Sacre and maybe Nick Young (player option but for only $1.2 million) on the books. Fans expect a radical overhaul of the roster and one that takes big steps back toward contending. Kobe…

  10. Jeremy Lin’s pretty funny take on fame: “You’ve changed bro” (VIDEO)

    Aug 15, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Jeremy Lin may have changed, but he still has a great sense of humor and he still doesn’t mind being the butt of the joke. This is an amusing video from Lin’s own YouTube channel, where he looks back on how those around him think fame has changed him — he’s not practicing enough for…

  11. Jim Buss says Dwight Howard ‘was never really a Laker’

    Aug 15, 2013, 12:04 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike Brown

    The Lakers did their due diligence in free agency this summer where Dwight Howard was concerned, getting the last word in their formal pitch after the coveted big man had met with other teams. In the end, Howard chose to sign with the Houston Rockets — a decision that many felt was a foregone conclusion…

  12. Report: Knicks, 76ers talking to Chris Duhon

    Aug 7, 2013, 2:42 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    We know the Knicks are looking for one more point guard to add to their roster, they’ve had conversations with Jannero Pargo and Beno Udrih, but they are still looking around. The 76ers are still making additions to their roster as well. Both are in talks with free agent point guard Chris Duhon, reports Adrian…

  13. Lakers set to have more nationally televised games than the Heat next season

    Aug 6, 2013, 10:11 PM EST

    APTOPIX NBA All Star Basketball

    As we dig into the particulars of the 2013-14 NBA schedule which was released on Tuesday, the amount of nationally televised games awarded to teams is an interesting indicator of perceived interest or predicted success. But as we’re learning more and more, it’s mostly an indication of market size. The Chicago Bulls and New York…

  14. Kurt Rambis not sure how fast Lakers can play next season

    Aug 5, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni smiles with Pau Gasol of Spain and Kobe Bryant during their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets, as he makes his game coaching debut for the Lakers, in Los Angeles

    The Lakers played pretty fast last season — they averaged the fifth most possessions per game in the league. (Houston was the fastest, have fun with that Dwight Howard.) Of course, Mike D’Antoni would like the Lakers to play faster. But Kurt Rambis doesn’t sound optimistic the Lakers can do that with the roster as…

  15. Steve Nash doesn’t really buy your “Championship or bust” attitude

    Aug 1, 2013, 1:42 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    There is no more ridiculous or annoying argument in sports than “count the ringzzzzz.” Yes Kobe Bryant fans, I’m looking at you. Basketball remains a team sport — Bill Russell was a great player but he has 11 rings because he was on a great team. We’ve mythologized Michael Jordan into a superhuman player (and…

  16. Steve Nash gets “tryout” with Inter Milan (VIDEO)

    Aug 1, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Steve Nash

    Call it a workout, call it an “honorary tryout,” call it whatever you wish, soccer fanatic Steve Nash got to take the pitch with Inter Milan on Wednesday and show off his soccer skills Above is a video about the experience. Spoiler alert: Nash did not make the team. But it looks like had fun,…

    Jul 30, 2013, 10:04 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    We told you about Steve Nash getting a shot to try out with Inter Milan, and while it was more like a day at soccer fantasy camp than an actual tryout, he seemed to enjoy the experience as much as expected. Nash joined The Crossover to discuss his adventure, the courting of Dwight Howard, and…

  18. D’Antoni says he really doesn’t understand Howard’s decision

    Jul 30, 2013, 7:20 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni, Dwight Howard

    What was he going to say? Mike D’Antoni spent his portion of the Lakers’ Dwight Howard free agency meeting in early July trying to show Howard how the center really did fit in the D’Antoni offense — how Howard is vastly better on the pick-and-roll than he is just getting the ball in the post.…

  19. Steve Nash likes that people are counting the Lakers out

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:01 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    Can the Lakers really fly under the radar? Even though everyone rational realizes they will at best be in the mix for one of the bottom seeds in the West, that they are the third best team in their own division, they are still the Lakers with the huge fan base and big stage. People…

  20. Lakers expect to have Nash, Gasol ready for training camp. Kobe… we’ll see

    Jul 29, 2013, 6:41 PM EST

    Pau Gasol Kobe Bryant

    The Lakers are not going in the tank next season — they are going for the high lottery, they are going to come out and try to make the playoffs. The West is deep next season but making the postseason as a lower seed is not out of the question… if everything goes right. Which…

  21. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  22. Steve Nash to have pseudo soccer tryout with Inter Milan

    Jul 26, 2013, 7:21 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    If you know anything about Steve Nash, it’s that he is a soccer fanatic. He hosts a summer soccer series that draws big names from basketball and the European football worlds, plus he is the co-owner of the Vancouver Whitecaps of the MLS. And now he gets his dream: To try out for Italian soccer…

  23. Lakers will not have quite as much 2014 cap space as some think

    Jul 23, 2013, 1:42 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    While fans (and a lot of front office executives) around the league have enjoyed the Lakers stumbles last season, we all know the plan. And it’s a very feasible one. The Lakers will muddle through this season then rebuild on the fly through free agency in the summer of 2014 when virtually everybody comes off…

  24. D’Antoni said Howard didn’t play his role on Lakers, questions fit in Houston

    Jul 17, 2013, 5:03 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni, Dwight Howard

    How Houston incorporates Dwight Howard into their offense is going to be interesting. Here are two facts to dwell on: 1) The Houston Rockets played at the fastest pace in the NBA last season. They averaged 98.6 possessions per game, which was faster than the Nuggets (97.8), faster than the Warriors (96.8), faster than everyone.…

  25. Nash says no Howard means Lakers offense will be “more fluid”

    Jul 16, 2013, 2:24 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard wants touches in the post — and he’s pretty good in the post despite not having a lot of counter moves to fall back on. He shot 44 percent on post up situations last season despite the injury, 49 percent and 50 percent the two years before that. But in Mike D’Antoni’s style…
