  1. Pacers to sit Andrew Bynum for Friday’s game in Philadelphia

    Mar 13, 2014, 8:23 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Indiana Pacers

    Andrew Bynum looked strong in his Pacers debut on Tuesday, scoring eight points and grabbing 10 rebounds in just 15 minutes of action against an undersized Celtics front line. Even with three days off before his team’s next game, however, Bynum is going to be held out on Friday — a game that’ll be played…

  2. Kevin McHale, who coaches Dwight Howard, says Joakim Noah is the Defensive Player of the Year

    Mar 13, 2014, 7:03 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    The Rockets are in Chicago to face the Bulls in a nationally televised contest on Thursday, and Houston head coach Kevin McHale paid the highest of compliments to the best active player on the opposing team, Joakim Noah. That part wasn’t unusual, as head coaches will often times dole out honest and well-deserved praise to…

  3. Tony Wroten drops Ray McCallum to the floor with the killer crossover (VIDEO)

    Mar 13, 2014, 12:55 AM EDT

    Tony Wroten

    Normally posting video of one player dropping another with a crossover if it only leads to a missed shot is a bit gauche, but in this case, it’s worth making the exception. Tony Wroten seems to mystify Kings rookie Ray McCallum here, and McCallum trips over himself trying to keep up. Again, Wroten should have…

  4. Thunder GM Sam Presti is tired of tanking talk, critical of the league for continuing to address it

    Mar 12, 2014, 10:21 PM EDT

    Serge Ibaka, Sam Presti

    Adam Silver has preached transparency and innovation since taking over as the NBA’s commissioner on Feb. 1, and that has meant a lot of talk about how the draft lottery may not be the perfect solution to prevent teams from stacking their rosters with less than the best available talent as part of the rebuilding…

  5. Bobcats bench Gary Neal over ‘internal team matter’

    Mar 12, 2014, 9:02 PM EDT

    gary neal bobcats

    The Bobcats are a playoff team in the East at the moment, but that position is relatively tenuous. Every game counts toward that goal, obviously, so willingly sitting down one of your rotation players has to have happened for a good reason. We don’t yet know exactly what that reason is, but we do know…

    Mar 12, 2014, 1:51 PM EDT

    Steve Kerr

    Steve Kerr sees why you’d make the connection between Phil Jackson, the Knicks, and himself. But he won’t discuss it just yet.

    Patrick Beverley went hard after Russell Westbrook from the opening tip on Tuesday, but James Harden says it was a needless distraction.

    Mar 11, 2014, 11:21 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Kevin Durant led the Thunder to victory with his 42 points, but not before there were plenty of fireworks between the two teams.

    Kobe Bryant’s recovery has been slower than expected, and the Lakers are reportedly ready to officially shut him down for the season.

  10. Patrick Beverley goes at Russell Westbrook just as he did on the play that caused injury in 2013 playoffs (VIDEO)

    Mar 11, 2014, 8:44 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    Patrick Beverley gives Russell Westbrook a not-so-subtle reminder of the play that caused Westbrook’s season-ending knee injury in the 2013 playoffs.

    Mar 9, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    Sixers mum on if it’ll come to pass.

  13. Jamal Crawford says he returned too soon from injury, plans to sit Monday vs. Suns

    Jamal Crawford

    “I don’t want the same pain to continue to bother me going into the playoffs.”

  14. Arron Afflalo hits a three to beat the halftime buzzer (VIDEO)

    Tim Duncan probably regrets forcing that pass.

  15. Wizards’ Martell Webster gets past Giannis Antetokounmpo for the fast break slam (VIDEO)

    Mar 9, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Martell Webster

    This wasn’t exactly a dunk on the Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, but he was certainly in the vicinity. Martell Webster got loose on the break, and was quick enough to the rim to avoid the long rookie, but threw the dunk down with such force that he landed somewhat awkwardly on his backside.

  16. Zydrunas Ilgauskas has jersey retired by Cavaliers (VIDEO)

    The Cavaliers raised the jersey of Zydrunas Ilgauskas to the rafters on Saturday, following a ceremony at halftime of Cleveland’s matchup with the Knicks. Ilgauskas delivered a speech and thanked the fans as is customary at these events, and LeBron James was in attendance to honor his former teammate, who had requested his presence. The…

  17. Glen Davis says there’s a ‘supernatural belief’ surrounding the Clippers

    Mar 8, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    glen davis clippers

    Glen Davis has only been a member of the Clippers for four games, but he’s already sensing something special about his new team. Davis was bought out by the Magic and signed with Los Angeles less than two weeks ago, but played for Doc Rivers in Boston during his first four NBA seasons. He was…

    Mar 8, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    carl landry kings

    Carl Landry appeared in a career-high 81 games for the Warriors last season, and was a key reserve who averaged 10.8 points and six rebounds on a team that made it to the second round of the playoffs. The Kings haven’t sniffed the postseason in eight years, but signed Landry to a four-year deal worth…

  19. Report: Phil Jackson ‘leaning toward’ accepting offer to become Knicks president

    Mar 8, 2014, 6:20 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Phil Jackson was first offered a head coaching position with the Knicks this week, even though Mike Woodson is still (for reasons unknown) firmly in place. Jackson declined that one, so New York upped the ante with a front office job offer, one that Jackson would reportedly be deciding on in the coming week. No…

  20. O.J. Mayo suspended one game for punching Pelicans’ Greg Stiemsma in the throat (VIDEO)

    oj mayo

    O.J. Mayo has been suspended one game without pay for “forcibly striking” Greg Stiemsma in the throat during Friday night’s loss to the Pelicans, the league announced on Saturday via official release. This comes as no surprise, as Mayo’s teammate Ersan Ilyasova received a similar suspension for even less of an offense that occurred in…
