  1. Russell Westbrook joins Team Anti-Long 2s

    Dec 16, 2013, 6:17 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    Russell Westbrook is shooting 3-pointers more than ever. Per game, per minute or as a percentage of all his shots – Westbrook is taking 3s at a career-high clip by a fairly wide margin. But he’s barely attempting more jumpers than usual. Westbrook is taking 47 percent of his shots from at least 15 feet,…

  2. Marcin Gortat says he’s unhappy with role, denies it

    Dec 16, 2013, 5:38 PM EDT

    Randy Wittman, Nene, Marcin Gortat, John Wall

    Marcin Gortat is playing well for the Wizards, but that doesn’t mean he’s happy. Gortat, via J. Michael of CSN Washington: “I just don’t like the position I play. I’m constantly drifting more and more away from the basket. Quite honestly, that’s not my game. I’m capable of making or two plays like that but…

  3. Bulls waive Mike James

    Dec 16, 2013, 2:54 PM EDT

    Mike James, Tony Mitchell

    The Bulls waived point guard Mike James today. James has been injured, so the Bulls have been using Marquise Teague and recently signed D.J. Augustin as backup point guards. James’ role, one he no longer filled particular well anymore, had been usurped. This brings the Bulls down to 13 players, the league minimum. So, maybe…

  4. Damian Lillard is 15-of-19 in overtime (!!!)

    Dec 16, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Damian Lillard hit a game-winner short jumper to give the Trail Blazers a win over the Pistons on Sunday night. Of course he did. Lillard has never missed a 2-point in overtime, shooting 10-for-10 inside the arc in his two-year career. He’s not bad on 3-pointers in the extra period, either, making 5-of-9. Determining whether…

  5. Kevin Love becoming a 25-15-5 master

    Dec 13, 2013, 5:46 PM EDT

    8d82d708cd5a9dc357454c1e04847b7b

    Entering this season, no player had posted back-to-back 25-point, 15-rebound, 5-assist games since 2006-07.* Kevin Love has already done it twice this year. *Pau Gasol did it with the Memphis Grizzlies in April of that season. Love had 26 points, 15 rebounds and five assists in a win over the 76ers on Wednesday night, giving…

  6. Glen Davis gets up close and personal in postgame interview (video)

    Dec 12, 2013, 3:25 PM EDT

    Josh McRoberts, Glen Davis

    Glen Davis, even down to the lowest weight of his career, is big. After games, he’s big and sweaty. So, FOX Sports Florida’s Dante Marchitelli faced quite the challenge of staying focused during this, literally, touching interview. That man deserves a raise! Marchitelli, not Davis. Davis is paid just fine, and at least it’s his…

  7. Kevin Garnett: ‘November was a s—– year for us’ (yes, he said year)

    Dec 12, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    2eb82d82cada1dc844e2603d8f417b8e

    The Nets and Knicks have been the NBA’s two most underwhelming teams this season, but some statistical models predicted New York would slip. Few, if any, expected Brooklyn to struggle like this. From afar, I recognize Brooklyn’s troubles, but like most, I’m mostly numb to them. That’s certainly not the case for Kevin Garnett certainly,…

  8. Carmelo Anthony and Rajon Rondo deny recruitment rumors

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    112ccd7d6c982f04e2f1e3bf958674c1

    Rajon Rondo’s high school coach said Carmelo Anthony was recruiting Rondo, a 2015 free agent, to New York. As Kurt wrote, those types of conversations happen all the time. Of course, nobody publicly admits to them while they’re ongoing (except Chandler Parsons, who bragged about recruiting Dwight Howard to the Rockets). Anthony, via Ian Begley…

  9. Tom Thibodeau to the Knicks? Well…

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    Tom Thibodeau is represented by Creative Artists Agency. We have to start there. CAA and the Knicks enjoy an extremely harmonious relationship. The Knicks actually made Mike Woodson fire his agent and retain CAA, according to Howard Beck of Bleacher/Report. Ken Berger of CBSSports.com: Once Woodson switches his representation to CAA, the agency will control…

  10. Dwight Howard keeping candy away from Rockets teammates

    Dwight Howard improved after after the All-Star break last season – before All-Star break: 16.3 points and 11.8 rebounds per game; after All-Star break: 18.4 points and 13.6 rebounds per game – and the reason is no secret: His back got healthier. But that wasn’t the only factor. Howard told Ken Berger of CBSSports.com he…

  11. Charlotte Bobcats sign Chris Douglas-Roberts, waive James Southerland

    Dec 11, 2013, 3:39 PM EDT

    2d82ec0fbfabc3d58ed9c9f4361fe999

    The Charlotte Bobcats’ outlook is changing. When they signed Al Jefferson this summer, the theory was they would rather be pedestrianly bad rather than historically bad – even if that meant lower lottery odds. I argued Charlotte should go all-in to be totally bad for another season, and that pulling in itself in opposite directions…

  12. Warriors sign Hilton Armstrong from D-League

    Dec 11, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    c9565dab4d3a5f543690ae9e2b97cf79

    The Warriors need big-man depth. Festus Ezeli has been out all season. Jermaine O’Neal and Draymond Green are banged up. Marreese Speights can’t gain Mark Jackson’s trust. Andre Iguodala is injured, too, and although he mostly plays on the wing, his absence the number of minutes he and Harrison Barnes can soak up as a…

  13. Doc Rivers second-guesses Jason Kidd’s use of Paul Pierce

    Dec 10, 2013, 5:52 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Jason Kidd

    NBA coaches comprise a fraternity. Many coaches like each other after years of working in the same field. Even the ones who dislike each other share an understanding of the responsibilities and pressures of this incredibly demanding job. That’s why it’s incredibly rare for a coach to publically criticize one of his peers, even if…

  14. Brian Shaw blames Nuggets’ slow starts on pizzas and nachos

    Dec 10, 2013, 4:44 PM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    The Denver Nuggets have been outscored in every first quarter they’ve played this month. They’ve scored a little and fallen behind (22-18 to the Wizards on Monday night), scored a lot and still fallen behind (29-27 to the Nets on Dec. 3) and have just been plain routed (39-15 by the Celtics on Friday). Yet,…

  15. Wizards challenge limits of sustained offensive ineptitude in single possession

    Dec 10, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    Randy Wittman

    Randy Wittman, coaching a Wizards team that has a singular focus of reaching the 2014 playoffs, watched his squad start 2-7 – placing him firmly on the hot seat. Washington then won seven of its next nine, and even with losses in its last two games, that should be enough for Wittman to keep his…

  16. Kobe Bryant returning Sunday against Raptors

    Dec 6, 2013, 5:23 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant’s jersey has faced snow, rain and wind. Yet, it’s endured. That’s the lesson I took from the above video, which Kobe posted to Facebook today. Oh, and that Kobe will return Sunday against the Raptors. I guess he’s been through a lot, too. Sunday will mark just 240 days since he tore his…

  17. Knicks and Nets might not remain so mockable for long, so enjoy it while you can

    Dec 5, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks and Nets as engaged in a thrilling competition: Which team is the biggest laughingstocks in the NBA? Both can lay claim. They have oversized payrolls, cartoonish owners, coaches on the hot seat and underwhelming stars. The Knicks have seen Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin feud, and the Nets have matched with Jason…

  18. Maurice Cheeks: Brandon Jennings doesn’t know how to play point guard yet

    Nov 30, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Maurice Cheeks, Brandon Jennings

    Flash back to the Pistons’ news conference to introduce Brandon Jennings. Joe Dumars in his opening statement, as transcribed by Matt Watson of Detroit Bad Boys: We also like the fact that he has five years of pro experience, one in Italy and four in Milwaukee. And we thought that he could step right in,…

  19. Trail Blazers watching game video from bench on iPads

    Nov 27, 2013, 12:00 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Boston Celtics

    Just four years ago, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post wrote about a new technology that allowed NBA scouts to search plays by team, player and type and see video for each. At the time, Synergy Sports Technology seemed revolutionary. According to Saunders, four teams still hadn’t subscribed at that point. One of the main…

  20. Mike Woodson: ‘I don’t think I have lost the locker room’

    Nov 27, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Mike Woodson

    The Knicks are looking increasingly frustrated. It starts with their star, Carmelo Anthony, frequently complaining to officials and trickles down to the rest of the players. Sometimes, issues like that are self-contained among the players. But other times, it’s the sign of larger discord – players lashing out in rebellion of a coach they no…

  21. John Wall: ‘I’m the best point guard in the league’

    Nov 27, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Washington Wizards

    John Wall has played pretty well lately. In his last three games, he’s averaging 33.0 points on 61.4 percent shooting, 6.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.7 steals per contest. The Wizards are 2-1 in that span. It’s a fantastic three-game stretch, but let’s not get carried away. Aw, shoot, let’s get carried away. "I'm the…

  22. Watching New Zealand native Steven Adams house hunt in Oklahoma City is delightful

    Nov 27, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Thunder rookie center Steven Adams is quickly emerging as one of the NBA’s most colorful personalities. The latest evidence is a video of the New Zealand native house hunting in Oklahoma City (hat tip: Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman). Among the highlights: Adams remembering he was considering a farm, but then he realizes that was…

  23. Pau Gasol not counting on contract extension from Lakers – and he shouldn’t

    Nov 27, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Four

    Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol were both scheduled to become free agents this summer until Kobe got a contract extension. Will Gasol receive the same treatment? Probably not. Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com: The 13-year veteran said that he did not know if Bryant’s deal means that the Lakers will also want to negotiate with him…

  24. Anderson Varejao says LeBron James could return to Cavaliers, which sounds like tampering

    Nov 27, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    United States v Brazil - Men's Exhibition Game

    Ever since LeBron James said he’d consider returning to the Cavaliers, it’s been fun to speculate. Will he do it? How would it affect his legacy? How great would LeBron and Kyrie Irving be together? It’s an interesting discussion, one that’s assuredly been held within in the league, by fans and many in between. And…

  25. Russell Westbrook didn’t mind healthy scratch, hints more could be coming

    Nov 26, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    Before tearing his meniscus in last season’s playoffs, Russell Westbrook had played every game in his five seasons. That gave him the longest active games-played streak in the NBA until he missed the Thunder’s season opener this season. Streaks like that combine many factors including health, luck and attitude. The ship has sailed on Westbrook’s…
