  1. Smush Parker says he stopped passing Kobe Bryant the ball

    Oct 12, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant reverted to one of his favorite past times the other day, smacking around Smush Parker like his own personal piñata. He said Smush shouldn’t have been in the NBA but the Lakers were cheap and “let him walk on.” Which is how it felt. But Smush — playing in China the past couple…

  3. Notes from Sunday’s NBA preseason games

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    It doesn’t matter who won or lost, so while the scores are listed below just consider those just a little headline so you know who we are talking about. What we want to know in preseason is who stood out — like Eric Bledsoe and Ty Lawson did in the Clippers/Nuggets game Saturday in Las…

  5. Playoffs? Wizards’ owner Leonsis isn’t talking playoffs.

    Oct 5, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Ted Leonsis, Adam Oates

    Washington Wizards players want to make the playoffs this year. John Wall and others have talked openly about that as a goal. They think the team — with the additions of Nene, Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza — can make the leap. But in speaking to the media, Wizards owner Ted Leonsis seemed to tamp…

  6. NBA Preview: Washington Wizards

    Oct 2, 2012, 7:20 PM EDT

    Bradley Beal, Ernie Grunfeld, Randy Wittman

    Last season: It wasn’t pretty, 20-46 never is, but the Wizards made some moves to push this team in the right direction. This was as dysfunctional a locker room as there was in the league, so trading JaVale McGee and firing coach Flip Saunders made sense. The team needed to bring in professional players and…

  7. Wizards sign Pargo to come in while Wall is out

    Oct 1, 2012, 11:53 AM EDT

    Jannero pargo AP

    It was expected the Wizards were doing to look around for some depth at the point guard position with John Wall out for a couple months (let us hope it is only a couple months), but they moved faster than had been expected. The Wizards have signed Jannero Pargo to a one-year deal, his agent…

  8. With John Wall out for a while, what is Plan B in Washington?

    Sep 29, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    John Wall, Wizards, Heat

    By Thanksgiving, maybe Washington can get back to what they pictured their offense would look like this season — John Wall running the break, Wall passing to Nene on the block, Wall driving and kicking out to Trevor Ariza, and of course Wall scoring a lot. But due to a stress fracture on his patella…

  9. John Wall out two months with stress fracture in patella

    Sep 28, 2012, 1:22 PM EDT

    John Wall

    This is not good. In a lot of ways. Wizards point guard John Wall will be out about eight weeks with a stress fracture discovered in his patella (his kneecap), the team announced Friday. This means he is likely off the court until around Thanksgiving. The good news is it is something they discovered early,…

  10. Video: Dwight Howard teaches Ellen how to Dougie

    Sep 27, 2012, 2:20 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Glen Davis

    She should have asked John Wall. Dancing is a big part of the Ellen show. Newly minted Laker Dwight Howard was on the show towering over the other guests and was teaching Ellen how to Dougie, so she could be hip in 2010. Well, at least they weren’t going Gangnam style, it could have been…

  11. Jordan Crawford could start over Bradley Beal for Wizards

    Sep 27, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal, Ernie Grunfeld, Randy Wittman

    Bradley Beal looked like a guy who had potential at Summer League, but a guy who needs some work (he shot 30 percent from three, for example). Last season, Jordan Crawford looked like an NBA player who started 32 games last year and scored 14.7 points a game the season before. Beal may be the…

  12. NBA Season Preview: Indiana Pacers

    Sep 25, 2012, 7:55 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Tim Duncan

    Last season: The Pacers made moves to become a top-tier team in the East and they worked out. Roy Hibbert and Paul George both took some big steps forward, while David West added the consistent scorer they were looking for and George Hill provided balance with Darren Collison, though the two didn’t work well together.…

  14. Add Nene to “will miss camp, be ready for season” list

    Sep 25, 2012, 4:13 PM EDT

    Nene Hilario

    While John Wall is the guy we all will be watching — and the guy who will get too much credit or criticism for whatever happens with the Wizards this season — Nene might be the second most important player on that team. After years of enigmatic and underwhelming big men in our nation’s capital,…

  15. John Calipari comes to defense of John Wall

    Kentucky coach John Calipari is a consummate recruiter — a combination coach and father. A guy who in private might be tough on his guys, but in public will defend them. Even after they are flown from his nest. Like John Wall. The former Kentucky point guard and former No. 1 overall pick is about…

  17. Video: Cousins, Davis put on show at Kentucky alumni game

    Sep 19, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    We told you before that Anthony Davis had quite a night at the Kentucky Alumni Game last week, dropping 40 points. What we didn’t tell you is that he was not the game’s high scorer — DeMarcus Cousins dropped 42. It was a summer show, not a real game. Meaning there was about as much…

  20. Mo Evans rejected Wizards front office job, he wants to play

    NBA Labor Negotiations Continue As Deadline Looms

    Last year, veteran Maurice Evans was a key part of the Wizards effort to reshape their locker room. While less professional influences were moved out and away from John Wall, Evans was there to provide guidance in the vacuum. The Wizards liked what he did, so they offered him a front office job, reports the…

    Tracy McGrady

    Tracy McGrady is auditioning for jobs.

    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…

    Adding some depth and athleticism on the wing — something they already had but can you ever have enough? — the Nets have reached a one-year deal with Josh Childress. Childress himself confirmed this on twitter. Howard Beck of the New York Times broke the story. This is a non-guaranteed deal, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of…
