Kevin Love poses for The Body Issue

"You've heard the saying, "Some people live to eat, and some people eat to live"; I think you can figure out which one I was. ... If you asked me to pose back then, that would have been a solid 'No.' A hard 'No.'" See his incredible transformation

This league truly astounds. Summer league ball smothering Hoops Twitter right now. 15-year-old me jealous of how the modern NBA never stops

Price right for Joe Johnson?

The Nets G is slated to make $24.9M next season, 2nd-most in the league behind Kobe Bryant. But his 2014-15 player efficiency rating was actually below the league average.

Spurs win big in free agency

ESPN's 5-on-5 panel was unanimous. San Antonio was the big winner in free agency. Royce Young writes: "Normally dormant and enjoying the frenzied madness from afar over a glass of wine, the Spurs stepped into the middle of it this summer." More winners and losers

Ginobili 'brings so much to the table'

P.J. Carlesimo on Manu Ginobili's return to the Spurs: “He is so much a part of the fiber of that team. … He transforms a game when he comes in. He makes and takes big shots.”

Pacers rookie Myles Turner posts 13 pts, 9 rebs and 6 blks in Monday's game. Blocking shots on one end, transitions for spot-up Js on other.

But does he have his own candy bar?

Reggie Jackson's new Pistons contract will reportedly pay him $80 million over 5 years, or an average of $16M per season. That's more per year than baseball Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson made in his entire career ($9.15M). The salary breakdown

Indiana Pacers @Pacers

Final: Orlando (White) 85, #Pacers 76 Shayne Whittington led Indiana in scoring with 16 points. Myles Turner had 13pts/9rebs/6blks.

Does Ginobili have anything left?

The 37-year-old Manu Ginobili is coming off one of his worst seasons as a pro. His 10.5 PPG average was the 2nd-worst of his career, and he averaged a career-low 8.0 PPG in the Spurs' first-round playoff loss.

Joe Johnson would give #Cavs a max player at every position: PG Kyrie, SF LeBron, PF Love, C Thompson. But their tax bill would be insane!

Cavs-Nets trade talks stagnant

Chris Broussard explains: "At one point it seemed like the ball was in the Cavaliers' court ... Now it seems like the Nets don't really want to do it."


Wade says end not in sight during Q&A

Answering questions in an impromptu Twitter Q&A, Dwyane Wade said he will retire when he "can no longer play," and had a comeback when asked if he missed being carried by LeBron James. Flash answers

Turner, Pacers back in action

Pacers rookie Myles Turner had 20 points and 8 rebounds in his Summer League debut. He'll look to build on that as Indiana takes on one of the two Magic squads in Orlando.


Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon

Jordan Crawford, the ex-NBA gunner who spent last season in China, is on the Mavs summer league roster. Dallas could use another shooter.

Parsons: Jordan can be NBA's best center

Mavs forward Chandler Parsons told ESPN's Tim MacMahon of DeAndre Jordan's decision to sign in Dallas: "It all came down to him being the best center in the NBA, an All-Star-caliber and MVP-caliber player in this league. No doubt in my mind that [opportunity] was here in Dallas." Parsons' recruiting role

Reggie Jackson gets 5-yr/$80M deal

Brian Windhorst on Reggie Jackson's big contract with the Pistons: "Obviously Stan Van Gundy has a big belief that this guy can be a franchise point guard going forward."


Cavs still waiting on LeBron James

The top remaining NBA free agent? That'd be the former four-time MVP. LeBron is also up for multiple ESPY awards, including Best Male Athlete -- where he faces this year's MVP, Stephen Curry. Cast your vote
