  1. Report: Bulls discussed Taj Gibson trade with Lakers, Wizards and Bobcats

    Jan 31, 2014, 6:50 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls, at least on some level, aren’t totally concerned with how they fare this season. Derrick Rose is already out for the year, and no matter how well everything else comes together, the superstar’s injury limits the Bulls’ upside in 2014. They already traded Luol Deng for zero assets that will help them…

  2. Report: Kyrie Irving has been telling people he wants to leave Cleveland Cavaliers

    Jan 30, 2014, 4:40 PM EDT

    kyrie

    The Cleveland Cavaliers went 21-45 Kyrie Irving’s rookie year, 24-58 his second year and are 16-29 in his third year. It’s 27 degrees in Cleveland right now, the warmest it’s been there in days. Why wouldn’t Irving want out? Apparently, he’s struggling to find reasons, too. Chad Ford of ESPN: Kyrie Irving has been telling…

  3. How Carmelo Anthony helps the Knicks score more efficiently beyond his own points

    Jan 30, 2014, 4:28 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    It’s been nearly a week since Carmelo Anthony had 62 points and zero assists against the Charlotte Bobcats. The amazement over his scoring and giggling over his passing has begun to fade. But the deep-seated belief that Melo is a one-dimensional chucks who doesn’t make his teammates better persists, as strong as ever. The perception…

  4. Anthony Bennett took a really long time to score double-digits

    Jan 29, 2014, 4:57 PM EDT

    Anthony Bennett, Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Anthony Bennett had 15 points and eight rebounds in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday. It was a good game for Bennett, the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. It was also Bennett’s first double-digit scoring game of his career. As Kurt wrote, it’s too soon to write…

  5. Don Nelson: ‘I can’t believe that Dallas isn’t getting more free agents’

    Jan 29, 2014, 3:40 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Just two years ago, the Dallas Mavericks were dreaming of adding Deron Williams and Dwight Howard. But Dallas struck out on both, Williams re-signing with the Nets and Howard joining the Rockets. Instead, the Mavericks – who play in a state without an income tax, haven’t had a losing season since 2000 and have one…

  6. Daryl Morey calls Royce White arguably ‘the worst first-round pick ever’

    Jan 27, 2014, 5:26 PM EDT

    Royce White

    The Houston Rockets selected Royce White with the No. 16 pick in the 2012 draft. He spent a year with the Rockets while anxiety issues kept him from being with the team and was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers, who cut him before this season began. At this point, it appears to be a huge…

  7. Andre Drummond benched twice in loss to Dallas Mavericks, doesn’t want to talk about it

    Jan 27, 2014, 4:49 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    How much can an NBA player really screw up in the first 11 seconds of a half? In Andre Drummond’s case, enough to cause Detroit Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks to bench him. On the Pistons first play of the second half in a loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, Drummond set a ball screen…

  8. Steven Adams exactly the player, personality Oklahoma City Thunder need him to be

    Jan 27, 2014, 2:57 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    BOSTON – Steven Adams arrived at Notre Dame Prep, as his first American coach put it, “with a guitar and a knapsack.” Ryan Hurd, who coaches the Massachusetts basketball powerhouse, knew his team needed a center, and the highly touted Adams certainly was one. Otherwise, Hurd didn’t know what to expect from Adams, a mid-year…

  9. Tony Snell’s mom sounds awesome

    Jan 26, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Ateve Alford, Tony Snell

    Kobe Bryant covered this already, the college-basketball system isn’t great for players. Run as a cartel, the NCAA often forces players into tough and unfair situations. Tony Snell found himself in one of those situations last year. Having played three years at New Mexico, Snell was ready to turn pro. His coach, Steve Alford, was…

  10. Some NBA coaches reportedly fear, disdain growing analytics movement

    Jan 26, 2014, 6:30 PM EDT

    Seattle Seahawks v Houston Texans

    Lionel Hollins went out of his way to denigrate the role of statistics in basketball, and the Memphis Grizzlies let him go. That likely wasn’t a direct cause and effect, but it undoubtedly played a part. It’s quite possible, had Hollins been more open to analytics, he’d still be coaching the Grizzlies. Instead, he lost…

  11. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett return to Boston for first time as Brooklyn Nets

    Jan 26, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    BOSTON – Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett return to Boston today as conquering heroes. Centerpieces of the Celtics’ 2008 championship team, Pierce and Garnett will always be heroes of the past for fans here. But now, they’ve gone from goats to heroes of the present with the Brooklyn Nets, who are an NBA-best 9-1 in…

  12. Luol Deng would consider re-signing with Chicago Bulls this summer

    Jan 26, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Jimmy Butler, Luol Deng

    The Chicago Bulls, if they amnesty Carlos Boozer, will have significant cap room this summer. They’d have viable starters at point guard (Derrick Rose), shooting guard (Jimmy Butler), power forward (Taj Gibson) and center (Joakim Noah). That would leave a hole at only small forward, assuming Tony Snell isn’t ready to step into a bigger…

  13. Greg Monroe admits trade rumors weigh on him

    Jan 26, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Greg Monroe

    A couple weeks ago, the Detroit Pistons reportedly weren’t considering trading Greg Monroe. It’s difficult to believe that’s still the case. The Pistons have lost 12 of 16, including defeats to the Milwaukee Bucks and Utah Jazz. Monroe doesn’t deserve blame for the losses, at least not relative to other Pistons, but there’s a growing…

  14. Terrence Ross scores 51 points, making Raptors and NBA history

    Jan 26, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Jonas Valanciunas; DeAndre Jordan; Jamal Crawford

    Terrence Ross tied Vince Carter’s single-game Toronto Raptors scoring record with 51 points against the Los Angeles Clippers last night. Wait. Terrence Ross? The same Terrence Ross who went more than three weeks earlier this season without scoring 51 combined points? The same Terrence Ross who had scored fewer points than J.J. Redick this season…

  15. Rumor: Tom Thibodeau dated Kate Upton

    Jan 25, 2014, 11:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets

    Unlike most rumors, we know where this one originated. Tom Thibodeau. Asked about Doc Rivers saying the Bulls would be “nuts” to let Thibodeau leave, Thibodeau said he didn’t want to comment on the rumors that led Rivers to be asked that question in the first place. Via CSN Chicago: “I’m not going to comment…

  16. Defending dunk-contest champion Terrence Ross names his desired challengers: Tony Mitchell, Andre Drummond and Victor Oladipo

    Jan 25, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Toronto Raptors

    If Paul George can stump for his desired dunk-contest field – even if he likely has no real intention of participating – the event’s defending champion should have a say, too. The man who can do this probably knows a little something about dunking: So, Terrence Ross, who should join you in the dunk contest…

  17. Heat owner Micky Arison denies banning Justin Bieber from Miami home games

    Jan 25, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Justin Bieber

    Justin Bieber, recently arrested for DUI and other charges, wasn’t in his usual courtside seat for the Miami Heat’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday. Bruna Nessif of E! News: A source tells E! News Bieber’s tickets were pulled last minute by the Heat because they didn’t want the particular brand of attention…

  18. Kevin Durant, even out injured, sparks Oklahoma City Thunder to sixth straight win

    Jan 24, 2014, 10:51 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    BOSTON – Kevin Durant rose from his seat on the bench, tugging up the slack on his warm-up pants as he inched forward at nearly action that could lead to an Oklahoma City Thunder basket. As the Thunder connected on shot after shot, Durant – out with a sore right shoulder that will be re-evaluated…

  19. Randy Wittman admits he’s not motivating Washington Wizards

    Jan 24, 2014, 8:39 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Losing to the Boston Celtics isn’t embarrassing. Boston is 15-29 this season – hardly great, but definitely not a record indicative of a team that can’t compete. But losing to the Celtics when they don’t have Rajon Rando, Avery Bradley and Jerryd Bayless? When they outscore you by four points in the six minutes their…

  20. Kevin Durant out with injury, putting Oklahoma City Thunder in uncharted territory

    Jan 24, 2014, 7:13 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    BOSTON – For the first time in the 492-game history of the Oklahoma City Thunder, they will play without Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. With Westbrook already sidelined with a knee injury, a sore shoulder will prevent Durant from playing tonight against the Boston Celtics. “It’s going to be weird,” Kendrick Perkins said. Thunder coach…

  21. Josh Smith on pace for worst 3-point-shooting season in NBA history, but only because he’s playing smarter

    Jan 24, 2014, 3:57 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons  v Indiana Pacers

    Josh Smith is on pace for the worst 3-point-shooting season in NBA history. That was the case recently made by Sean Corp of Detroit Bad Boys and backed by Kyle Wagner of Deadspin. There are varying potential cutoffs, but here’s how it stacks up: In NBA history, players have attempted at least 200 3-pointers in…

  22. Kobe Bryant: College basketball system ‘really isn’t teaching players anything’

    Jan 23, 2014, 12:15 PM EDT

    USA Men's Basketball Team Scrimmage Against China

    Strangely, Kobe Bryant was recently held up as an example for why Jabari Parker should return to Duke for a second season. Kobe, of course, went to the NBA directly from high school and has had an extremely fruitful career, both financially and in terms of on-court success. But I guess he was only a…

  23. Andrea Bargnani tries to dunk on two 76ers, doesn’t

    Jan 23, 2014, 10:45 AM EDT

    Andrea Bargnani

    If nothing else, you have to credit Andrea Bargnani for his fearless. Yeah, and nothing else is probably apt. A spot-up shooter, Bargnani isn’t exactly known for his slams. But he drove as if he were Julius Erving. Then, he completed the play as if he were Andrea Bargnani. Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel…

  24. Luol Deng and Joakim Noah really want to win tonight’s Bulls-Cavaliers game

    Jan 22, 2014, 4:55 PM EDT

    Luol Deng, Joakim Noah

    Luol Deng initially tried to dismiss first matchup against his former team – Bulls-Cavaliers at 7 p.m. tonight – as just another game. Eventually, he got into the spirit, though. Deng, via Mary Schmitt Boyer of The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer: “I’m sure they’re going to go after me as guys that I’m close with, friends,”…

  25. Celebrity seating at Knicks games determined by ‘mysterious proprietary formula’

    Jan 22, 2014, 4:21 PM EDT

    Ben Stiller, Spike Lee

    Spike Lee sits courtside and Woody Allen isn’t invited to the VIP lounge. That much is known. Otherwise, how the New York Knicks – and other teams in major markets – handle the celebrities at their games is mostly a mystery. Sarah Lyall of The New York Times peaked behind the curtain at Madison Square…
