  1. If Knicks trade for 2012 pick, they can trade 2011 and 2013

    Knicks GM Donnie Walsh has said he has a way to get more than one first round draft pick — a not so subtle comment aimed at the Denver Nuggets (who still are working hard with the Nets on a Carmelo Anthony trade and are avoiding the Knicks like they have the Hantavirus). There have…

  2. The LeBrons are back in coming animated series for Web

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:50 AM EDT

    the_lebrons_family

    It seems LeBron James is better known for the things around him off the court — like Nike’s ad campaigns — than for what he has accomplished on it so far. For example, remember “The LeBrons?” The four versions of LeBron — dapper business LeBron, athlete LeBron, young LeBron and old, curmudgeonly LeBron — from…

  3. John Wall asks coach to fine him when he sulks

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:24 AM EDT

    John Wall, Deron Williams

    John Wall played maybe his best game of the season Monday. Matched up on the elite Deron Williams of Utah, Wall had 19 points (7-of-12 shooting) and a career high 15 assists — one of those a pass to Nick Young in the corner to seal the win with a three. Wall did a good…

  4. Quote of the day: Ron Artest loves him some In-N-Out burgers

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:03 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    “I could’ve bought 10,000 In-N-Out Burgers. I rather would’ve done that than give it away. I’m going to get 10 burgers [after Monday’s game]. I love In-N-Out. It’s addicting. It’s the only reason I’m here in L.A. If it wasn’t for In-N-Out Burger, I probably would’ve gone to Memphis or something.” —Ron Artest‘s reaction to…

  5. Video: Kevin Garnett saves the day

    Jan 18, 2011, 8:43 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    It was a fitting end to the Celtics and Magic — if Kevin Garnett had not been back in this game, the Celtics would not have won. Less for any specific play he made than the different, more intense energy the Celtics have when he is on the court. This was the best game of…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Martin Luther King Day games

    Jan 18, 2011, 8:33 AM EDT

    Ray Allen

    What you missed while listening to the “I have a Dream” speech… The Lakers defeating the Thunder in a contest that looked a lot like last-year’s playoffs was our game of the night. Celtics 109, Magic 106: Kevin Garnett is back. Is he ever. It was a full slate of 13 NBA games Monday and…

  7. New season, same old Thunder. That’s not enough in L.A.

    Jan 18, 2011, 2:35 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Meet the new Thunder, same as the old Thunder. Which is a pretty good thing, those old Thunder captured the imagination of the NBA fans nationwide last season. They were athletic, they got and ran, they were just fresh and fun. Thunder players talk openly of wanting to get rings with this group, there is…

  8. Blake Griffin puts up 47, NBA one-game high for season. He’s more than dunks.

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:46 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Tyler Hansbrough

    Blake Griffin is a basketball stud. I don’t mean in the highlight dunk kind of way… well, yes I do. That too. He has more dunks than anyone in the league by a long shot. But in the “this guy can flat out ball” kind of way. He dropped 47 on the Indiana Pacers Monday…

  9. Brandon Roy has knee operations, called successful

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:46 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Doctors will tell you any surgery you wake up from is a successful surgery. So, on multiple levels Brandon Roy’s double knee operation today was a success. Operations on both knees took place on Monday, cleaning up issues as best they can, and now the recovery and rehabilitation begins. There is no set timetable for…

  10. The night that the lights went out in Minnesota

    Jan 17, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    TargetCenter

    Just passing along this video from the Magic/Timberwolves game, where the lights just go out midgame at the Target Center. Is it just me that pictures Johnny from Airplane! sitting somewhere in the rafters, pushing the plugs back together and saying “just kidding.” Then he does his evil laugh.

  11. Nets say no permission given to talk to ‘Melo. Yet. Meanwhile Knicks talk more picks.

    Jan 17, 2011, 5:10 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    Just as an update, here is where we stand with Carmelo Anthony and the trade rumors, a saga that has become more annoying and drawn out than a Grey’s Anatomy storyline. Sunday it was reported that the Nets were given permission to talk to Carmelo Anthony, which really meant Nets owners Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z…

  12. Report: Anthony Randolph requests trade from Knicks

    Jan 17, 2011, 4:22 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Milwaukee Bucks

    The Knicks have reportedly been shopping Anthony Randolph around, seeking a first-round pick they could use in Carmleo Anthony trade. Of course, it’s looking more and more likely that there will not be a ‘Melo trade for the Knicks as the Nets have become clear front runners (if owner Mikhail Prokhorov can get ‘Melo to…

  13. LeBron, Wade, Bosh all sit out Heat practice

    Jan 17, 2011, 3:18 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    What would the Justice League look like without any of its Super Friends? What would the Miami Heat look like without any of their big three? The Cleveland Cavaliers? Worse? It is possible — if unlikely — that we find out Tuesday night. Monday afternoon Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James all sat out…

  14. Garnett says Celtics should learn lesson from Patriots loss

    Jan 17, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    You’d think fine people in Boston would be used to losing sporting events to teams from New York by now. But apparently not as most of New England is in stunned silence about the Patriots loss to the loudmouth New York Jets on Saturday. Kevin Garnett, writing on his blog in China (for his shoe…

  15. NBA Power Rankings, the mid-season report edition

    Jan 17, 2011, 2:04 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion,  Tim Duncan

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, with a focus on the first half of the season and what to look forward to. So for you Cavs fans, we should start talking draft. 1. Spurs (35-6). Well, that first half couldn’t have gone much better. We knew the Spurs would be good, they always are, but one…

  16. Blake Griffin, Lamar Odom ejected after tussle over hustle

    Jan 17, 2011, 12:33 PM EDT

    James Capers, Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, Randy Foye, Ryan Gomes, Blake Griffin

    The game was over, in any real sense of the word. It was 99-90 Clippers with 5.7 seconds left. Randy Foye would shoot his free throws, the Lakers would dribble out the clock and the Clippers would have beaten their second elite team in a week. But it didn’t end quietly. As Foye shot and…

  17. Tyrus Thomas suspended for elbowing Emeka Okafor’s face

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:46 AM EDT

    Tyrus Thomas

    With two and a half minutes left in the Bobcats loss Saturday to the Hornets, Tyrus Thomas went up for a rebound, came down with the ball and his elbows out, then, in trying to create space, swung his left elbow directly into the face of Emeka Okafor. He got the flagrant two foul for…

  18. Video: Turns out, Lou Williams can rap

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Lou Williams Jumper

    There are no shortage of NBA players who think they are rappers (and no shortage of MCs who think they can ball). Usually, this ends in disaster. Right, Kobe? But the Sixers sixth man Lou Williams…. not bad. Not bad at all.

  19. John Wall’s injuries holding him back

    Jan 17, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, John Wall

    John Wall has been solid — he’s averaging 15.3 points and 8.9 assists per game — but he has not been what everyone hoped. We expected a guy who was going to be the next great point guard in the league and to show that from day one, but he plays like a guy still…

  20. Trailer for Kobe’s Nike movie leaked

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    He plays in Los Angeles, it was just a matter of time before the acting bug bit Kobe Bryant. He just won’t have to wait tables at California Pizza Kitchen while he waits for his big break. Bryant and director Robert Rodriguez (“Sin City,” “Spy Kids”) have teamed up to make a full-fledged movie for…

  21. Rudy Fernandez loves Portland and doesn’t want to be traded. Why would you think that?

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez

    Rudy Fernandez loves Portland. Loves playing basketball there. He told the Oregonian he doesn’t want to be traded he just wants to keep on being a Blazers. Why would you think otherwise? Oh yea, this summer when his agent demanded a trade and even threatened a holdout at one point. Fernandez’s people demanding a trade…

  22. Carlos Boozer out Monday with sprained ankle

    Jan 17, 2011, 8:52 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Antawn Jamison

    While we were all listening to Chris Bosh whine about his ankle being sprained, Carlos Boozer walked out of the United Center Thursday night with a boot over his left foot due to a sprained ankle. Boozer will be out Monday afternoon when they take on the Grizzlies, according to Sam Smith on Bulls.com. If…

  23. Carmelo Anthony: “I don’t want to talk to nobody.”

    Jan 17, 2011, 4:18 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    As we told you previously, Carmelo Anthony has been offered freedom to talk to the New Jersey Nets about going East as part of a massive three-team trade… Except, for the record, he doesn’t want to talk to anyone. That’s what he said Sunday night, as reported by the Denver Post. “I don’t want to…

  24. Chris Bosh leaves game with sprained ankle; not considered serious

    Jan 16, 2011, 7:50 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Chris Bosh left the Miami Heat’s game against the Bulls Saturday in the fourth quarter and did not return to action. Postgame X-rays showed no damage and the sprain is considered not serious, according to ESPN, but he likely will have an MRI soon just to confirm that. No word on whether or not he…

  25. ‘Melo says it’s all about winning. Trade to Nets moves closer. Do those two things go together?

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    It’s getting close. The Nuggets, Nets and Pistons are still negotiating, hammering out the final details of a proposed blockbuster trade, something the Denver Post and multiple other sources are reporting. The details could be finalized the first part of next week, after the Nuggets finish their road trip Sunday night. Then it all falls…
