Doc Rivers content with no backup point guard

Doc Rivers is pleased with the signing of Leandro Barbosa and isn't worrying about not having a traditional backup point guard like many fans, bloggers, and writers are. “I love his speed, his ability to handle the ball. we don’t have a backup point (guard), but we have another ballhandler. Our theory is if we throw three ballhandlers out on the floor, someone can bring the...

Andrew Bynum’s hair is similar to the Don King look (Pictures)

Andrew Bynum has cultivated a new look since being traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Philadelphia 76ers over the offseason. The 24-year-old center has grown out his hair and is now sporting a healthy Afro. Unfortunately, the frilly nature and occasional off-color in his hair has led to some unfavorable comparisons.

While Leandro Barbosa will miss Sunday night’s final preseason game against the 76ers due to a visa issue, Darko Milicic will miss his third straight game with a right wrist sprain.

Jeff Green impressed everyone during preseason

I’ve been holding off on a “Jeff Green is soooooooo much better than ever” article, largely because I didn’t want to overreact to a small preseason sample size when his four years in the NBA paint a different story.But it certainly does seem like Green feels more comfortable than ever, and his production was probably the single most positive takeaway from preseason. He averaged...

Pop left out of Olympic mix?

The next Summer Olympics are still a little less than four years away, but the decision on who will be coaching the next men’s basketball team will have to be made well before that.

Plus, Barbosa is a huge liability on defense and really the only thing he would be able to contribute...

Leandro Barbosa not worried about playing time, which is good since he might not get much

One of the good things about having a deep and talented roster: Any veteran willing to sign a minimum deal probably cares more about winning than playing time.Leandro Barbosa understands that when everybody’s healthy, he’s probably fifth in the Celtics guard rotation. For someone who has averaged double digit points in six of the past seven seasons (including 11.1 last year and...

Popovich says Heat's James maturing

While the San Antonio Spurs and coach Gregg Popovich didn't get a chance to see NBA Finals MVP LeBron James in their preseason visit to Miami on Saturday, Popovich knows enough of James to see that the all-star forward is improving after winning his first championship. While his fans might argue there's not much to improve on, Popovich told ESPN'S Miami Heat Index...

Spurs do well in annual NBA GM Survey

San Antonio Spurs' Gregg Popovich has won two NBA Coach of the Year awards and according to NBA GMs, he could be in line for another this season.
