Mike Miller Wants to Play for a Contender

Mike Miller Wants to Play for a Contender

Mike Miller had one thing on his mind after being amnestied by the Miami Heat: Pringles. I’m most definitely not kidding, though that does need some clarifying. The Heat announced on Tuesday that they would be waiving Miller via the amnesty clause after the forward spent three years with the team. Miller was informed on [...]

Metta World Peace on Joining Knicks: ‘I Want to Win’

Like Carmelo Anthony before him, Metta World Peace has finally come home. After spending nearly a decade and a half elsewhere, World Peace has joined the New York Knicks, the team that passed over him in the 1999 NBA draft in favor of Frederic Weis. Long past his prime, World Peace is also far removed [...]

Derrick Rose has good news. Though “good news” and “Derrick Rose” are no longer synonymous with each other, the Chicago Bulls finally have something to look forward to next season—Rose’s actual return.

Dwight Howard Wanted Lakers to Amnesty Kobe Bryant

Dwight Howard Wanted Lakers to Amnesty Kobe Bryant

Steve Nash was right, Dwight Howard really didn’t want to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. The NBA free-agency period is winding down. Most of the big-name players have signed, and a majority of the drama is over. And still I find myself writing about the Lakers on an almost daily basis. Partly because I [...]

Jeff Teague ‘Ready’ to Move From Hawks to Bucks

Jeff Teague ‘Ready’ to Move From Hawks to Bucks

Looking at the Atlanta Hawks, you just can’t help but shake your head. They let Josh Smith walk, which is cool. I was exhausted from writing about him, them and the rift that existed-but-didn’t-really-exist-except-it-did-exist between them. Snagging Paul Millsap was more than fine by me, too. He’s a talented forward who, with a little grooming, [...]

Kobe Bryant Won’t Take Pay Cut to Play for Lakers in 2014

For Kobe Bryant, less is never more. Still working his way back from a ruptured Achilles injury and facing the prospect of leading the Los Angeles Lakers to a lottery berth once he does, one would expect the importance of next summer to resonate with the Black Mamba. Steve Nash is the only player on [...]

Steve Nash Says Lakers ‘Didn’t Have a Chance” at Re-signing Dwight Howard

Steve Nash Says Lakers ‘Didn’t Have a Chance” at Re-signing Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard was never going to re-sign with the Los Angeles Lakers if you ask Steve Nash. Speaking with the Los Angeles-based “Mason & Ireland Show” on ESPN Radio (via Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times), the Lakers point man didn’t believe the team had a chance at retaining Howard leading into that meeting.
