    The Chicago Bulls-Cleveland Cavaliers rivalry will resume Monday night … well, sort of. LeBron James is set to face Derrick Rose and company for the first since re-joining the Cavs, but he’s downplaying the hype surrounding this meaningless exhibition game. James concedes that the Bulls have a better, more cohesive unit at this point. Per the Northeast Ohio Media Group: “It’s going to be fun. I don’t really see a rivalry renewed right now,” James said after shootaround this morning. “We haven’t done anything right now. They’re a team that’s…

    by Crystal Lan If someone had told me sneakers and education were an ideal partnership, I would have scoffed at the idea. But if that “someone” happens to be fellow SLAM contributor and a doctorate in urban education, Dr. L.A. Gabay, I respectfully listen—and even entertain—the thought. This past September 27, I was rewarded for my selective open-mindedness.

He was able to win a pair of NBA championships with the Miami Heat, and he also made the NBA finals all 4 seasons he wore the jersey. Now, the team looks to move on, as 2 of the big 3 still remain on the squad. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade have certainly heard the doubters, and they are putting in the work to show that they are still contenders in the Eastern conference. Things did not exactly and as planned last season for the Miami Heat. They were looking for their 3rd…

    The Chicago Bulls figure to be one of the most intriguing teams of the 2014-15 season, a talented squad that shouldn't be worse than a solid playoff team and could possibly contend for a championship, depending on a few factors. The biggest of those variables figures to be the health and related effectiveness of point guard Derrick Rose, currently healthy after returning from the second of two consecutive season-ending knee injuries. After playing in only 10 games last season and failing to star in the FIBA World Cup of Basketball, Rose needs to prove that he can return to his former status…

    The gruesome leg injury suffered by Paul George in a USA Basketball exhibition was arguably the biggest non-acquisition moment of the NBA offseason. The Pacers immediately lost their already iffy status as East contenders and now look headed for a lottery appearance, if not full-scale rebuilding. Plus, the league as a whole will be without one of its brightest young stars. It's a shame all around. Given this state of things, any progress in George's recovery looks pretty positive. So it was nice to find out on Tuesday that he's back on the court and taking jumpers after Pacers practice. Check…
  • Shawn Marion talks up Kevin Love's Cleveland presence, while LeBron James talks up Chicago

    LeBron James’ trail of delicious bread crumbs has helped reshape the entire Cleveland Cavaliers roster. Kevin Love forced a trade to the Cavs following James contract agreement with Cleveland, asking to go to a team that had an even worse record than his mediocre Minnesota Timberwolves club last season. Shawn Marion and former James teammates Mike Miller and James Jones soon followed suit. Suddenly, the Cavs are a destination team, and that doesn’t figure to change as the franchise continues to add free agents to surround James with over the next few years. It’s not all about LeBron,…

That's for you, dear reader, to figure out. C: ESPN the Magazine. Henry Abbott presents the argument that Kobe Bryant — his contract, his demeanor, his relationship to other top stars, etc. — is the primary reason the Los Angeles Lakers have become awful, are likely to be awful again this season and might continue to be awful until after he's retired.

    Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah has always found a sound balance between the frantic and ferocious nature of his game and off-court tranquility, though many have jokingly chalked that up to Joakim’s particular strain of recreational activities. The same cannot be said for Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, who reportedly has very little in terms of a personal life outside of basketball, in between putting in marathon shifts and sometimes sleeping at the team’s practice facility. The secret to Noah’s success in keeping things outwardly chill? He won’t and shouldn’t give it the full credit,…

    Looks like one of my favorite Pistons is on his way out of town. Will and his Bynumite antics will no longer be exciting crowds at the Palace. The Boston Celtics are working to finalize a trade that will send center Joel Anthony to the Detroit Pistons for Will Bynum, according to a league source. It’s not clear if Bynum will stick with the Celtics. It could hinge on whether the team makes any additional moves before the season tips later this month. Anthony, 32, had played sparingly, including this preseason, since being acquired from the Miami Heat in January. Via ESPN You’ve got…

    The Detroit Pistons' first-year coach said again on Saturday night that with years of losing came bad habits that are tough to break, but the Pistons must break to win. ATLANTA — In the fourth quarter of the Pistons' preseason game against the Atlanta Hawks, Al Horford burned Andre Drummond in the post for an easy bucket. Drummond competitively tried to issue payback on the other end by way of a slam dunk shot -- our favorite! -- but the dunk was not as good as the post move he put on Horford and the ball hung on the rim, eventually dropping out to the Hawks' John Jenkins. Jenkins pushed it…

ATLANTA — Josh Smith came down hobbling after hitting a half hook in the paint at the 5:29 mark of the third quarter during Saturday night's Pistons win in Atlanta. Smith immediately hunched over in pain before limping toward the Pistons' bench where he met Arnie Kander. Smith and Kander walked to the end of the bench where Kander worked his normal magic. Smith would not play the rest of the game, and the injury was a good guess as to why. After the game, Stan Van Gundy…

    This is Season Preview week on Bourbon Street Shots, and while the focus will be on the team as a whole, the answer to the question above will likely determine how big of a jump the Pelicans make in the Western Conference. Quite simply, NBA superstars only miss the playoffs in very rare situations. Kobe Bryant missed the playoffs in his prime because Chucky Atkins led the Lakers in minutes that year. Chris Mihm was the starting center. Jumaine Jones was the 6th man. Who? Exactly! You can debate whether Carmelo Anthony was a superstar last year. If you say yes, I will still point out that JR…

A list: The shooting was a thing of beauty.  Against scrubs, but I love threes.  Love them. Ryan Anderson looked . . . well, a little heavy.  He might need another few months to get in game shape and sport that chiseled physique we are used to.

    20 Oct 2014 | 8:21 pm
    DeMarcus Cousins had a dominating performance but it wasn't enough to overcome the lack of late game execution and overall sloppiness of the Kings. Despite leading for much of the game, a dominating DeMarcus Cousins performance, and no Tim Duncan or Kawhi Leonard for the Spurs, the Kings fell to the San Antonio Spurs 106 to 99.  It was a bit of deja vu to the last few times the Kings have visited San Antonio, as once again the team failed to execute and close out in the final quarter as the game tightened up. Cousins led the way with 32 points on 12-14 shooting from the field.  He also…

    The Kings travel to San Antonio to face the Spurs in a clash of title contenders. Preseason is ending quickly as the Kings head to Texas for their penultimate exhibition, this time against the defending NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs.  The game is not set to be televised either in Sacramento or San Antonio, meaning you'll only be able to track it by listening to KHTK 1140.  Tip off is at 5:30 pm Pacific. 3 THINGS TO LOOK FOR 1. With preseason winding down, the hope is that the mistakes will lessen and the offense will tighten up.  The Kings have been a bit turnover prone in their new ball…
  • Omri Casspi getting comfortable in new role with Kings

    Blake Ellington
    20 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    Omri Casspi looks to be a key contributor off the Kings bench this season. When Omri Casspi signed with the Kings over the summer, many shrugged their shoulders with a "meh." The sixth-year man is in his second stint with Sacramento after all and how much of a role could he possibly have now? As the preseason has rolled along, Casspi continues to contribute steady, productive minutes and likely will be one of the two to three top contributors off the Kings bench this season. Casspi, who helped the Kings defeat Maccabi Haifa 91-59 on Saturday, seems to have absorbed his NBA experience quite…

  • Kings beat Maccabi Haifa 91-59: Point Guards Shine, Turnovers Abound, and Sim Scores

    The Kings welcomed Maccabi Haifa into Sacramento for an exhibition game. While they started out rough, and had their obligatory turnover problems, they did get their act together and won 91-59. In a very different type of game at Sleep Train Arena, the Sacramento Kings hosted Maccabi Haifa, a ball club straight out of Israel. The game opened with a very nice rendition of the Israeli National Anthem, and an exchanging of gifts between the two teams. I really like the NBA not only embracing the international community by traveling abroad, but welcoming some of these clubs here. The game had…

  • Why CJ McCollum Will Not Be the Trail Blazers' Answer for 6th Man

    The Oregonian's Joe Freeman suggests that CJ McCollum might be a candidate for Portland's 6th Man designation. Head Coach Terry Stotts seemed to demur. We take up the argument by examining the 6th Man role and the players who have filled it best. Yesterday afternoon the Oregonian's Joe Freeman penned a piece suggesting second-year guard C.J. McCollum might be tailor-made for a 6th Man. I'm thinking long-term, and McCollum's mix of scoring ability, playmaking and ball-handling seem tailor made for a sixth-man role...

    Did that game go by fast or what? The Boston Celtics defeated the Brooklyn Nets, 95-90, in the NBA's first 44-minute game. In what was an experimental match for the league, the Celtics impressed. After trailing 51-40 at halftime, they stormed back with a 33-14 third quarter performance. Brooklyn battled back in the fourth, as both teams went blow for blow down the stretch, but Boston was able to hold on. Jared Sullinger was the star of the game, dominating with 21 points and 19 rebounds, draining 3-of-5 three-pointers. Brandon Bass excelled off the bench, filling up the box score with 14…

Looks like he was right. Three days after scoring 19 against Minnesota, Mayo hit six threes and scored 24 points as the short-handed Bucks shot 60% from the field in a 120-107 win over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.

The NBA's so-called positional revolution has fallen short of eliminating traditional roles and responsibilities in lineups, but Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is the type of player who blurs the lines separating big men from guards and keeps the dream of a deeper revolution alive. He is blessed with the length of a center, the quickness of a swingman, and the vision of a guard. Giannis flashes a broad skill set that is altogether intoxicating, yet it's still difficult…

West sprained his ankle on Saturday night and according to a report from Autumn Allison, initial X-rays weren't enough to get a full prognosis for West's return. Saturday night's X-ray came back clear, but West will have an MRI on Monday to get a better grasp of what may be wrong with the reportedly very swollen…
  • Pacers final score: Pacers rally against Mavericks for 98-93 win, David West sprains ankle

    18 Oct 2014 | 7:25 pm
    Chris Copeland's six threes helped key a 13-point fourth quarter comeback for Indiana's second preseason win, but David West suffered a sprained ankle in the third quarter. The end result for the Indiana Pacers in their preseason win over the Dallas Mavericks proved the highlight in an otherwise concerning night for the blue and gold. Indiana posted a double digit rally in the fourth quarter to come away with their second preseason victory behind big play from Donald Sloan and Chris Copeland, including a timely bucket from Damjan Rudez to cap a 98-93 victory. Considering it came to a fourth…

    Here's a look at the Suns' center position this season, and what you can expect these players to bring to the team. Although the Phoenix Suns are going to depend on the play of their guards to carry the load offensively this season, the play of their centers may be what ultimately determines their overall success. There's no doubt that the Suns have scary talent and potential at the guard position, but they will also need significant contributions from their big men inside.  Not just to score, but more importantly, to defend the rim and grab rebounds...something the Suns simply cannot rely…

    The Phoenix Suns are not a playoff team this season as it stands. There it is. I said it. To put it in the most simple of terms, things are going to need to happen. With that process in mind, I decided to look at the five biggest questions the Suns face this season. I tried to run these in circumstantial order, meaning I don't think we even get to talking about #2 if #1 doesn't happen and so on and so forth. There's a little twist at the end with the format, so just stick with me here. The premise here is that there are several points as to why the Suns wouldn't make the playoffs and there…

    The Timberwolves finished just under .500 last season, but are not expected to be any better than a 35 win team this season as they have plenty of young talent to develop. After trading away Kevin Love, there will need to be a good amount of development done. With that uncertainty,  Minnesota Timberwolves tickets have a season average of just $91.45 on the secondary market.  Below are the five most expensive Timberwolves home games of the season. 1/31/15 vs Cleveland Cavaliers | Avg.

    This is an exciting time for the Timberwolves organization. Whether or not that excitement will translate to a high percentag of wins sooner, later or ever, still up in the air. Now that Kevin Love has been shipped out of town in exchang for Young and the youngsters, the Twolves roster looks vastly different. It’s so very unique to see a team trade a way their superstar only to see the over all level of excitement about the team, from both players and fans, rise.

    Do you ever look back on your life and pinpoint a watershed moment where your entire upbringing or current state of affairs would have been wildly different had you chosen a different path? Perhaps a college choice, a job, or even something as “simple” as staying a little longer at a bar and meeting your husband or wife? For me, my life would have been 100% different had I not made the decision to play the drums in 5th grade band at Oak Grove Middle School in Bloomington, MN in 1994. Trumpet was the early favorite, but I copied my childhood best friend, chose percussion, and the…

    While it’s not our Timberwolves, and not even the NBA, the FIBA World Cup brings basketball back in the the forefront. At least for some of us. Of course the FIBA World Cup isn’t as high profile as the FIFA World Cup, however, international basketball teams have become far more competitive over the years. Having followed last years EuroBasket, and watching CSKA Moscow come in and play quite well at Target Center, I’ve developed a greater respect for the international game. Because the teams of many of the Twolves’ international players did not qualify, (Nikola…

  • Wizards vs. Pelicans final score: 3 things we learned in an 88-84 loss in Baltimore

    Albert Lee
    20 Oct 2014 | 6:51 pm
    Despite the end result, this game was not as close as it initially appears. The Washington Wizards lost to the New Orleans Pelicans, 88-84 on Monday in Baltimore. Though the Wizards helped turn around a 69-48 deficit in the beginning of the fourth quarter into a winnable game toward the end, they actually made this game interesting at the end, only down by three points, 87-84 with 18 seconds left in the game after Rasual Butler made three free throws. Ultimately it wasn't enough, and I wouldn't put too much stock in the comeback. It was done on the backs of the bench players, and without…

    The Wizards' offense has been among the lowest scoring in the preseason thanks mostly to awful three-point shooting. Is there any hope things get turned around before the team's shooters get healthy? The Wizards' reputation for offensive prowess exceeded the team's actual performance last year. Pulled down by a poor bench and an over-reliance on mid range shots, the Wizards finished the season 16th in the NBA in offensive rating. Significant improvement was expected given projected improvements from their young players, a deeper bench and the addition of the versatile Paul Pierce. But those…

He’s also done cardio. He’s not sure when he can return.

    20 Oct 2014 | 8:56 pm
    There has been plenty of concern since the summer on whether Derrick Rose would be able to regain half the form that made him the MVP of the league a few seasons ago. The point guard was selected to play for Team USA in the FIBA World Cup, but was noticeably ineffective despite playing against mostly inferior competition. After his breakout performance against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday, the concerns are beginning to subside. Despite losing 107-98, Rose looked dominant on the floor, scoring 30 points on 12-of-18 shooting from the field, including four-of-five shooting from the 3-point…

Regarding the Philadelphia 76ers, it is going to ensure that their tank job for this upcoming season will not be replicated by anyone else anytime soon. Under a proposal scheduled to be voted upon by representatives of the 30 NBA ownership groups, the formula for the draft lottery will change. As first reported by Zach Lowe of Grantland, the proposal on the table would give the teams with the four worst records equal 12 percent chances to win the lottery. Under the current…

  • Hornets vs Hawks final score: Atlanta outlasts Charlotte, 117-114

    Brad Rowland
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:22 pm
    The Atlanta Hawks closed the preseason with a 117-114 overtime victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night. Monday night marked the final preseason home game for the 2014-2015 Atlanta Hawks, and while it was a bit of a roller coaster, the final result was a positive one. The home team needed overtime after a lackluster second half, but in the end, the Hawks held serve for a 117-114 victory over the Charlotte Hornets. The first half was extremely productive for Atlanta, though the game started in relatively innocent fashion for both sides. Mike Scott and Paul Millsap led the way with 6…

"It's going to take, for me, just time," Horford told reporters following the game. "I will keep getting in game situations, start that chemistry again with Jef and get it going.

    DeMarcus Cousins had an amusing triple-double. We should start with the understanding that all preseason games are always, always, ALWAYS meaningless, under all circumstances and that the only way to ever take away anything from any of them is if someone gets injured. Everyone agrees on those two hard and fast rules, right? Yes? We're clear on this? Good. But still though... It'd be silly in the extreme to suggest that the Spurs "needed" to win a preseason game. Silly and patently wrong. The score is the absolute last thing that matters here. However, it couldn't have hurt for certain…

In the case of Splitter, who's been doing some light rehab work on the court, Pop said not to expect the Brazilian big man for the next  preseason game, on Wednesday, against Atlanta. "I don't know when he's going to be ready," Pop said.

Preseason is usually an ordeal to get through for players of all stripes, but due to unforeseen circumstances, it's taken on a bit more importance for Cory Joseph and Marco Belinelli. They're both going to be called on to fill big roles and heavy minutes, and are readying themselves by working on their respective weaknesses. At least Joseph had the benefit of knowing all summer long that he was going to be in line for the extended playing time. Just after winning the championship, an MRI on Patty Mills'…

    After looking like a shell of his former self for most of the preseason and in international play, Derrick Rose finally had a break out performance against the Cleveland Cavaliers. It may still be the preseason, but Bulls' fans had to be thrilled to see Rose dominate again. Rose shot 12-18 from the field and 4-5 from three. Good for 30 points in just 24 minutes. Rose also added five rebounds and three assists. The Bulls' superstar will likely be the X-factor this year in determining how the East plays out. **Where do you see Rose and the Bulls finishing this season? Will Rose return to…

Allie Clifton didn’t have as much fun as Thompson because she had to interview him for her job. After calling her “Tina,” with a wink, Thompson leaned in to kiss Clifton on the side of head when the interview had finished.

Last season, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook averaged a combined 54 points per game, which accounted for 51% of the team’s total. What’s one of the criticisms of Oklahoma City in the playoffs? They rely too much on Durant and/or Westbrook to make a play one-on-one (or more specifically one-on-five).

His shooting touch has improved since the FIBA World Cup. It was a good look for him at the Schottenstein Center on the campus of Ohio State University.

    Despite the negative emotions New York Knicks fans have towards meditation, zen will improve the New York Knicks. Recently, many people have laughed at coach Derek Fisher for introducing meditation to the Knicks practice.  Often times there are times that we laugh or criticize things we fail to understand. “Zen” or practicing meditation is one of those things that many people fail to understand. Zen is described as a Japanese school of Mahayana Buddhism emphasizing the value of meditation and intuition. It is a means to reach a sense of enlightenment. Many people believe it to be…
  • The NBA Experiment

    The NBA Experiment is taking shape weeks after the NBA owners  signed their multi-billion dollar deal with Turner Sports and ESPN. The NBA is experimenting with making the length of the games shorter overall by 4 minutes in order to give fans a better experience. They would  shave off one minute in each quarter. There is only one  question that remains, who complained about the length  of a NBA game? A NBA game on average is two and a half hours which includes commercial breaks and half time. The quarters are 12 minutes and the halftime is 15 minutes. Radio Personality Michael Kay said…
  • Kevin Durant Karma Bitten

    Kevin Durant Karma is at an all time low with the recent set of events. Months after Kevin declined to represent Team USA in The FIBA Championships in Spain he gets a “Jones Fracture” in his foot. This fracture is a broken bone at the base of a smaller toe. Durant is expected to miss 6-8 weeks , which includes the first month of the NBA regular season. According to general manager Sam Presti there was no particular reason for the injury. It did not occur in practice or  a preseason game. That seems to show a bit of bad luck to get a fracture in one’s foot without a specific…
  • New York Knicks Love Triangle

    9 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    The New York Knicks love the triangle so far right? Definitely not as we have seen them struggle  to run the new offense under coach Derek Fisher  in the preseason. The New York Knicks love the old system of running things. The New York Knicks also  love the future prospect of what the new Triangle offense can bring. The players do not seem to buy  into the triangle offense 100%. This is creating a love triangle that the New York Knicks do not want to be involved with before the NBA season begins. They have to quickly learn the principles of their new  system  in order to succeed.

  • Everybody UP: Atlantic Division Preview

    The Toronto Raptors and the Brooklyn Nets are the teams to beat in the Atlantic Division but don’t count out the New York Knicks. Toronto Raptors After a successful 2013 – 2014 NBA season ended with a hard-earned Atlantic Division title, the Toronto Raptors want more. Now they eye a re-peat in the regular season and a deeper playoff run. Since entering the league, in 1995, the Raptors have qualified for the Conference semifinals only once, in 2001. They reached the post-season five other times, but every time, they came up short in the first round. That was the case last year when the…

    Stephen A. Smith defends Kobe Bryant‘s recent rant with style. “This is a five-time NBA champion who has done it time and time again. You do not count out the Black Mamba…Whoever said that 39 players from the NBA are better than Kobe, indirectly, off-the-record, they are idiots. I know he ain’t talking about me, I can tell you that much, because there’s no way in hell I’m saying that they are 39 basketball players better than Kobe Bryant”, Stephen A. Smith said during ESPN’s First Take TV show.

  • Changing Times: Fewer Minutes, Fewer Games or Faster Pace?

    Toni George
    18 Oct 2014 | 5:23 am
    Are 2 hours and 15 minutes too much for an NBA game? Is an 82-game season too great of a deal for an NBA player? Do free throws slow the pace of the game? The National Basketball Association is in experiment mode and is willing to listen to anyone with an educated opinion. Since the basketball revenue depends on how happy the fans are, the NBA is permanently looking for ways to make their game experience as enjoyable as possible. Lately, rumors have spread around the league saying the fans would be much happier if the game were shorter, faster and basically more free-flowing. The Competition…
