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

    Mar 8, 2014, 9:30 PM EST

    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…

  2. Kings’ Carl Landry to miss remainder of the season with knee injury

    Mar 8, 2014, 8:00 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 8, 2014, 6:20 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 8, 2014, 3:01 PM EST

    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…

  5. Paul Pierce doesn’t rule out a return to Celtics

    Mar 8, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Paul Pierce is finishing out his Hall of Fame career with the Nets at the moment, after playing 15 seasons with the Celtics and rising to the top of many of the franchise’s all-time statistical leaders lists. Pierce returned to Boston for the second time this season wearing a different jersey on Friday, but he’ll…

  6. James Harden, Evan Turner get into shoving match in Rockets’ blowout win over Pacers (VIDEO)

    Mar 8, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

    WASHINGTON WIZARDS VS. HOUSTON ROCKETS

    Late in the third quarter Friday with the Rockets leading the Pacers by 23 points, James Harden and Evan Turner got into it a bit, and the players had to be separated after getting face-to-face and a little shoving ensued. This appeared to be Harden intentionally agitating things, as this play had been whistled dead…

  7. Pacers players hold locker room meeting after getting crushed by Rockets

    Mar 8, 2014, 9:30 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Denver Nuggets

    Even after three straight losses, the Indiana Pacers remain the team with the league’s best record, though they’re now tied with Oklahoma City for that honor while sitting at 46-16 in the standings. But the last two losses have been troubling. On Wednesday, Indiana lost by 22 points to a Bobcats team that is five…

  8. Josh McRoberts with an incredible behind-the-back pass to set up Chris Douglas-Roberts for three (VIDEO)

    Mar 8, 2014, 12:02 AM EST

    Josh McRoberts

    This pass was incredible in two distinct ways. First, the ability shown by Josh McRoberts to recognize that his teammate was wide open behind the three-point line from his position in the paint was fantastic. But the pass? It wasn’t just daring to attempt, but the physical level of skill required to get it there…

  9. Sixers coach Brett Brown on whether we’ll see Nerlens Noel play this year: “It really is, ‘Who Knows?'”

    Mar 7, 2014, 10:34 PM EST

    Nerlens Noel

    Nerlens Noel was selected with the sixth overall pick in last summer’s draft, and the Sixers traded Jrue Holiday for him in order to jumpstart their rebuilding process. But we have yet to see Noel take the floor for Philadelphia this season, in much the same way that Andrew Bynum missed his entire year with…

  10. Bucks’ O.J. Mayo ejected for punching Pelicans’ Greg Stiemsma (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2014, 9:05 PM EST

    o.j. mayo bucks

    It’s been a frustrating season in Milwaukee, and it’s gotten to the point where the team’s players are taking out those emotions violently against their opponents. Ersan Ilyasova received a suspension for the punch-shove combo he delivered to Reggie Evans, and we can expect the same punishment to be handed down to O.J. Mayo, who…

  11. Highlights from Gerald Green’s career high 41 points vs. Thunder (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2014, 7:55 PM EST

    gerald green kevin durant

    The nationally televised schedule of games that appear on TNT Thursday nights is apparently etched in stone. There’s no other way to explain the network keeping a Clippers-Lakers game on the air when a perfectly good Suns-Thunder matchup — one between two high-scoring playoff teams — was on the slate the very same night. Logistics…

  12. Woodson says ‘legally, no one can recruit anyone’ in response to Melo-Bulls talk. But that’s not necessarily true.

    Mar 7, 2014, 3:23 PM EST

    Mike Woodson, Carmelo Anthony

    Knicks head coach Mike Woodson has enough to worry about, including whether he’ll even be employed by the team next season, before he can begin to think about what Carmelo Anthony may choose to do as a potential free agent this summer. The latest rumor, of course, had Anthony being told by the Bulls’ Joakim…

  13. Spurs get a little revenge, along with season’s signature win in takedown of Heat

    Mar 6, 2014, 11:40 PM EST

    lebron duncan

    In the first meeting of the season between the Heat and the Spurs, Miami had little trouble securing victory in the Finals rematch, in large part due to the fact that the Spurs were cobbling together a lineup that didn’t entirely feature the team’s best players. The rematch of the rematch, however, saw the Spurs…

  14. Raptors to wear original ‘Dino’ jerseys for select games in 2014-15 season

    Mar 6, 2014, 10:21 PM EST

    raptors dino jersey amir johnson

    Plenty of teams are rolling out throwback jerseys these days, but the ones the Raptors are planning for next season may be some of the more highly-anticipated. Toronto will wear the team’s original “Dino” jerseys for select games during the 2014-15 season, according to an official release. “We are excited to bring back a piece…

  15. LeBron gets OK from Heat to attend jersey retirement ceremony in Cleveland for Zydrunas Ilgauskas

    Mar 6, 2014, 9:14 PM EST

    lebron z

    Zydrunas Ilgauskas will have his jersey retired in Cleveland this weekend, and his former teammate with the highest league-wide profile will be in attendance — despite the implications that many will attempt to ascribe to that gesture of personal support. LeBron James will be there when the Cavaliers raise Big Z’s jersey to the rafters,…

  16. Dwight Howard appreciates Magic’s tribute video, claims to understand booing from fans

    Mar 6, 2014, 8:01 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard returned to Orlando as a member of the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, and as part of the Magic’s 25th anniversary season, they played a video tribute to Howard between the first and second periods. Plenty of fans let their disapproval be heard, and boos rained down on Howard as the video began. Howard…

  17. Udonis Haslem told Patrick Beverley to stop talking trash at halftime of Heat-Rockets

    Mar 5, 2014, 10:55 PM EST

    Houston Rockets' Beverley smiles after being called for a foul while playing Oklahoma City Thunder in their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff in Oklahoma

    Patrick Beverley gained some national attention when his aggressive play resulted in an injury to the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook in the first round of last year’s playoffs. There was nothing wrong with Beverley’s play, but it branded him as an agitator of sorts. He’s since lived up to that label, being one of the more…

  18. Orlando Magic give video tribute to Dwight Howard

    Mar 5, 2014, 9:51 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    The Magic have been playing tribute videos for every former player that returned to play against them this season, as part of the organization’s 25th anniversary celebration. It’s a bit trickier where Dwight Howard is concerned, obviously, considering both his stature as one of the franchise’s all-time greats as well as the messy way things…

  19. Allen Iverson mocks his legendary ‘practice’ rant in latest Reebok spot (VIDEO)

    Mar 5, 2014, 7:56 PM EST

    Allen Iverson

    This is one of the better spots to release lately, and not just because we’re all too happy to re-live Allen Iverson’s legendary rant about practice any chance we get. There are some legitimately funny moments here, from Shaquille O’Neal doing what he does best to Shawn Kemp appearing the moment his name is mentioned.…

  20. Spurs coach Popovich: “Sometimes in timeouts I’ll say, ‘I’ve got nothing for you.'”

    Mar 5, 2014, 6:44 PM EST

    Gregg Popovich

    Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has a reputation of being difficult to deal with if you’re a member of the media, but a lot of that is situational. There’s almost nothing to be gleaned from in-game interviews between quarters, for example, so Popovich treats those with the respect they deserve. Other times, he’s been known…

  21. Kobe didn’t make a piano, but latest Nike spot shows what it would look like if he had (VIDEO)

    kobe piano

    If you follow Kobe Bryant on any of his social media channels, then you’ve seen a couple of cryptic posts from him over the past few days — including this one showcasing a Kobe Piano made in the shape of his Nike Basketball logo. My collection of masterpieces just hit a crescendo of domination #madebykobe…

  22. Andrew Bynum admits to jacking up shots from half court during Cavs practice

    Mar 4, 2014, 9:14 PM EST

    Bynum Cavaliers

    When reports surfaced explaining the reason that Andrew Bynum was kicked out of a Cavaliers practice before ultimately being suspended and traded from the team, we obviously assumed the worst. As it turns out, our assumption that Bynum was being so blatantly disrespectful that he would dare to launch shots well out of his normal…

  23. Dominique Wilkins is not impressed with LeBron’s 61-point performance

    Mar 4, 2014, 8:02 PM EST

    Reebok Pump 20th Anniversary

    Dominique Wilkins was an elite NBA scorer who played 15 seasons and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006. As someone who played the game and was able to take it over at times, his opinion holds a certain amount of weight — and Wilkins wasn’t all that impressed with the 61 points…

  24. Pat Riley says Caron Butler wanted a role that Heat couldn’t promise

    Mar 4, 2014, 7:09 PM EST

    Pat Riley

    It remains to be seen to a certain extent, but Caron Butler appears to be the one player made available during the NBA’s unofficial buyout season that has a true chance of impacting his new team’s playoff chances. That team is the Oklahoma City Thunder, who apparently had more to offer in their sales pitch…

  25. Nuggets players model 1993-94 throwback jerseys that team will wear March 17 (PHOTOS)

    Mar 4, 2014, 6:14 PM EST

    mutombo

    Plenty of teams break out throwback jerseys from time to time, but the one that the Nuggets chose to wear for a home game on March 17 bears some significance that goes beyond just fashion. In the playoffs that year, Denver became the first eight seed to knock off a one seed. The Seattle Supersonics…
