    Jan 10, 2012, 10:12 PM EDT

    Greg Ostertag

    RENO, Nev. — Greg Ostertag was the first big-name veteran to sign with the NBA Development League when he decided to embark on a comeback with the Texas Legends a few weeks ago. The longtime Utah Jazz center wasn’t impressive in his initial appearances, but the consensus was that as long as he was able…

    Jan 9, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James does a dance with Chalmers during a time-out in overtime after they tied their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta

    A little shifting up at the top but nothing too dramatic. Your big movers this week is the 76ers, who are playing well and moving up the rankings, and the Hornets dropping like a rock. 1. Heat (8-1 last week ranked No. 1). Chris Bosh drops 33 on the Hawks and wants you to remember…

    Gerald Green

    The first day of the eighth annual NBA Development League Showcase tips off Monday afternoon as the legendary Antoine Walker and the Idaho Stampede face-off against the New York Knicks-owned Erie BayHawks. There’s probably no better way to shake off the cobwebs of the weekend than sneaking out of the office for a late lunch…

  7. Jerry Sloan hints he may return to coaching

    Jan 8, 2012, 8:43 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    Jerry Sloan is a legend. After so many years in the NBA, at some point you’re in it so long, it’s impossible to walk away. And it would appear that after a year of being away from the game, Sloan is re-engaged and ready to get back on the horse. From SI.com: So as the…

  8. Weekend Observations: 25 things from the week that was

    Jan 7, 2012, 2:16 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.  1. Ramon Sessions is not shooting well, but he’s drawing a lot of contact and his assists are up this year. He’s got a 19.5 PER and can’t get over 25 minutes per game on the Cavaliers. He’s much more of…

  9. Jazz go young, veteran players not thrilled with new role

    Jan 5, 2012, 12:23 PM EDT

    NBPA Representatives Meet To Discuss NBA Lockout

    The Jazz are in a rebuilding mode. That means young players such as Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter are going to get big minutes and be given the rope to learn on the job. There is a reason veteran players don’t like to be on rebuilding teams. This is leading to some tension…

  11. The Nets, “Community,” and the darkest timeline

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    darkesttimeline

    In the Community (Thursdays this…. sometime in the coming months… on NBC!) episode “Remedial Chaos Theory,” the writers took the ol’ alternate timeline theory and spread it out like a Nuggets fast break. The concept is simple. The cast of man characters are at an apartment, sitting around a table. The door buzzer buzzes with…

    Jan 2, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

    Josh Howard Jazz

    Late in the third quarter Saturday night Jazz forward Josh Howard put the hard foul on James Anderson of the Spurs. That got him a flagrant foul at the time. Stu Jackson at the league office looked more closely at it and decided Howard deserved a flagrant two and a $25,000 fine on top of…

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    We lost basketball this year. Precious, sweet basketball. And even though most of the lockout happened in the offseason, those days were still slogs through disappointment and frustration. So to mourn those days and celebrate the first week of professional basketball this season, here are 100 observations on the early season. 1. Lob City’s a…

  16. Monta Ellis out Saturday for Warriors, Curry questionable

    Dec 30, 2011, 5:33 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Golden State’s scoring power could be very depleted when Philadelphia comes to town Saturday. Monta Ellis has been given permission to miss the game to attend the funeral of his grandmother who recently passed away in Mississippi, reports Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com. “Bottom line is he’s a family member going through something right now,” (coach…

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:09 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Reading Deron Williams‘ comments in the New York Times, you get the idea that Williams likes living in New York. He is living in SoHo with his family and commuting to New Jersey, plus doing charity work in Brooklyn. He’s happy there. He was at a party Tuesday night in SoHo to celebrate his partnership…

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    What you missed while debating the merits of a law forcing porn actors to wear condoms… Heat 115, Celtics 107: We broke this one down as our game of the night. But can you ever really get enough Norris Cole? Lakers 96, Jazz 71: If you watched this game and didn’t know which team was…

  20. Nets trade for Mehmet Okur to fill in for injured Lopez

    Dec 22, 2011, 8:59 PM EDT

    Mehmet Okur

    The Nets have landed a player Deron Williams is familiar with. New Jersey traded for Mehmet Okur, bringing in the Turkish big man to fill in for the injured Brook Lopez. The Jazz get a second round pick and a trade exception out of the deal — and they get $10.9 million off the books.…

  21. Video: Jeremy Evans dunks hard on Gerald Wallace

    Dec 22, 2011, 1:43 AM EDT

    Jeremy Evans, Gerald Wallace

    Damn Jeremy Evans. No that dunk didn’t count, it was called a charge. Gerald Wallace did have his feet outside the circle, although I think he got them there after Evans took off. That said, we’re not going to argue a borderline call in a preseason game. I didn’t know much about Jeremy Evans until…

    Dec 20, 2011, 10:41 AM EDT

    RNPS IMAGES OF THE YEAR 2011

    Our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Kevin Garnett went all Kevin Garnett and taunted a Raptor during a meaningless preseason game. Does this even shock us anymore? Jason Terry had to leave Mavericks…

  23. Deron Williams says he will be “grumpy” if Nets lose a lot

    Dec 20, 2011, 10:13 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Deron Williams is going to be grumpy. D-Will is a very competitive player and he’s about to be on a team that is going to lose a lot of games. He’s not used to that (college Final Four, Olympic gold, won more than he lost in Utah). The Nets have been trying desperately to land…

  24. Report: Andrei Kirilenko near multi-year deal with Nets

    Dec 19, 2011, 2:53 PM EDT

    Andrei Kirilenko

    This is not the superstar the Nets need — or the guy that keeps Deron Williams with the team into Brooklyn — but it would be a nice step forward. Sportando out of Europe reports Andrei Kirilenko — currently playing well for CSKA Moscow — is close to a multi-year deal to join the New…

  25. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks start out season on top

    Welcome to our inaugural power rankings for the 2011-12 NBA season (a regular Monday feature at PBT). These are fun if ultimately meaningless — in the NBA we have a playoff system to decide who is best (are you listening college football?). This is a preseason ranking, so remember that when you get mad about…
