  1. Eddie Jordan not helping his own cause

    Mar 28, 2010, 1:22 PM EST

    If you’re trying to keep your job, especially if your a coach whose team has not performed well on the floor, you need to show your passion, your knowledge and how you’ve connected with those players and can turn things around. Meet Sixers coach Eddie Jordan. His team beat the Hawks Friday night, in part…

  2. Carmelo Anthony: game winner

    Mar 27, 2010, 8:52 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony is a stone cold assassin. Don’t believe me, ask the Toronto Raptors.

  3. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 27, 2010, 4:09 AM EST

    What you missed while watching Cinderella leave the ball… Nuggets 97, Raptors 96: In a just and fair world, Denver does not win that game. Toronto gave their best effort in, well, a long time and outplayed Denver for 28 minutes (starting at the beginning of the second quarter). It was so bad JR Smith…

  4. Carlos Delfino taken to hospital

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:55 PM EST

    Buck Carlos Delfino had his head and neck stepped on, had to leave the arena on a stretcher has been taken to an area hospital in Milwaukee. Late in the second quarter Delfino went up for a layup that he missed then fell to the ground. Miami’s Udonis Haslem went up for the rebound and…

  5. Phil Jackson says he's likely to coach Lakers next year

    Mar 26, 2010, 8:18 PM EST

    UPDATE: 8:18 pm: In his pregame talk with the media, Phil Jackson sounded a little less certain, and a little more like this was all tied to winning another title. From the AP story: Lakers coach Phil Jackson says he hasn’t decided whether he’ll return for another season on the Los Angeles bench but he…

  6. Utah Republicans want to dominate capital basketball games

    Mar 26, 2010, 7:28 PM EST

    Science has shown we tend to elect taller people president in times of trouble. Clearly, this nation is facing some challenges. So, Utah Republicans have pulled out the ultimate weapon — 7’6″ former Nets/Mavericks/Sixers player Shawn Bradley. He is running for the Utah House of Representatives, according to the Desert News. “I had a lot…

  7. Arenas avoids jail time

    Mar 26, 2010, 4:53 PM EST

    UPDATE 7:08 pm: Gilbert Arenas’ lawyer, Ken Wainstein, released this statement: “Judge Morin’s decision was fair and measured; it reflected a deep understanding of the relevant facts … Mr. Arenas is grateful to the court and looks forward to serving the community and once again being a force for good in the District of Columbia.”…

  8. Steve Nash's assist to high-five ratio way off

    Mar 26, 2010, 3:10 PM EST

    This is so why I need an intern, so I can assign them trivial, labor intensive and mildly entertaining tasks. Like tracking the number of high fives Steve Nash gives in a game. I assure you, your guess is too low.

  9. No sympathy for Turkoglu in Toronto

    Mar 26, 2010, 2:50 PM EST

    It’s really not hard to follow the line of thinking: Hedo Turkoglu was the big off-season acquisition for Toronto; Toronto has had a horrible season that is crumbling right as the playoffs start; ergo, Turkoglu the problem Doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. It’s easy logic, and we like easy. So when Turkoglu had…

  10. LeBron says he could win the scoring title if he wanted. Is that news?

    Mar 26, 2010, 1:42 PM EST

    In post game comments after the Cavaliers win last night, LeBron James said something that has gotten picked up by the media and blogsphere to day. We’ll take Brett Pollakoff’s version from FanHouse (because he and I think alike on this): “If I really wanted to,” James said, “if I really wanted to be the…

  11. Wade, Andy Roddick to play H-O-R-S-E, tennis doubleheader

    Mar 26, 2010, 12:46 PM EST

    I firmly believe Dwyane Wade can do anything. Why, just a few years ago I saw him carry Shaquille O’Neal and the Heat to an NBA title. He makes the MyTouch phones look as cool as an iPhone. Almost. He can leap tall buildings in a single bound, or at least he can leap Anderson…

  12. New Nets owner not exactly Internet savvy

    Mar 26, 2010, 11:49 AM EST

    NBA players are products of their generation — they communicate heavily via text and send emails, all from their cell phone. Often doing it while at a VIP table in the back of a bar while drinking Gray Goose. New Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov may find it a challenge to relate to his players (via…

  13. OMG Gentry luvs 2 text

    Mar 26, 2010, 11:19 AM EST

    Alvin Gentry is the king of social media among NBA coaches. Which is a very, very small hill to climb — can you really picture Phil Jackson trying to fit his comments in 140 characters? But credit Gentry, he’s on top of it. In addition to having his own twitter account, he’s a texter, he…

  14. Nowitzki doesn't really understand ejection

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:54 AM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki is no Rasheed Wallace. Rasheed does not appreciate the subtle musical mastery of David Hasselhoff. Nowitzki rarely says anything to referees that will get him a technical. He did Tuesday night, getting two quick ones from Bill Kennedy and getting tossed. Nowitzki tells the Star Telegram he doesn’t know exactly what he did.…

  15. Paul Allen issues statement, says nothing

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:15 AM EST

    UPDATE 10:13 am: The Oregonian’s John Canzano tried to get more information out of Paul Allen last night. Didn’t go so well. But I asked him at the end of the first half, as he headed into the room he uses as an office, if he’d mind going stronger with the comments on Pritchard. The…

  16. Steve Kerr may stick around in Phoenix

    Mar 26, 2010, 9:52 AM EST

    Steve Kerr’s first couple months on the job in Phoenix in 2008 really can only be called an unmitigated disaster — the Shaquille O’Neal trade, sending Mike D’Antoni away and trying to take a team that was a title contender and change it on the fly. Bad idea jeans. But things are better now —…

  17. Colangelo: Individual agendas hurt Raptors

    Mar 26, 2010, 8:54 AM EST

    Toronto is a bad team. Have been for more than a month. The Raptors would have fallen out of the playoffs by now if the Bulls were worse. Since the All-Star Game, Toronto is 6-12. General Manager Brian Colangelo told Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star that individual agendas have gotten in the way of…

  18. Heat make D-League call-up

    Mar 26, 2010, 8:17 AM EST

    Looking to add a little front-line depth, the Miami Heat today will call up maybe the most promising big man in the D-League, Alade Aminu. Ridiculous Upside broke the story, adding that since a mid-season trade to Bakersfield Aminu has averaged 19.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. It was expected someone would…

  19. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 26, 2010, 3:07 AM EST

    What you missed while watching Gus Johnson go Gus Johnson… Heat 103, Bulls 74: Miami’s offense looked great. Chicago’s game plan — a very logical one — was to take Dwyane Wade out, do not let him beat you with his shot. So he passed, and finished with 10 assists. The Heat pounded the soft…

  20. Price set for sale of Wizards, Verizon Center

    Mar 25, 2010, 7:22 PM EST

    Unlike the sale 3,000 miles away in the Bay Area, there are no real secrets about the sale of the Washington Wizards. When owner Abe Pollin died it was already agreed his estate was going to try to sell the team and the building to Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis. Today they cleared one of…

  21. Tyreke Evans out at least two more games

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:20 PM EST

    Tyreke Evans — the guy who should be rookie of the year, sorry Jennings — is going to miss the Kings only visits this year to Cleveland and Boston. That is on doctor’s orders. Evans suffered a concussion back on March 19 against the Bucks and is still feeling the effects of that, as reported…

  22. Morrow's present involves sitting, future murky

    Mar 25, 2010, 3:39 PM EST

    Here’s where it stands right now for Anthony Morrow — he lost his job to a D-Leaguer. To be fair, Reggie Williams is a pretty special D-Leaguer. The guy has game. But Don Nelson had been giving Morrow a lot of minutes until the Memphis game when it suddenly dropped to two minutes. Here’s how…

  23. Evan Turner wants to be Brandon Roy

    Mar 25, 2010, 2:04 PM EST

    It’s everybody’s favorite game this time of year: College prospect X has a game like NBA player Y. John Wall could be a better Derrick Rose. Greg Monroe is a poor-man’s Brad Miller. We love the game. It’s almost always way, way off base, but we love the game. Evan Turner plays it too, and…

  24. Shaq in latest Owl City video

    Mar 25, 2010, 1:16 PM EST

    You think Shaqulle O’Neal is a hip hop guy, but don’t pigeonhole the man. He is diverse. He is a Renaissance man. He loves him some Owl City, too. Apparently. Because he appears in the band’s newest video in an odd and awesome way. And no, what Shaq mouths near the end of the video…

  25. Wade hints Chicago may not be his kind of town

    Mar 25, 2010, 12:28 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade loves him some Chicago. Loves Lou Malnati’s, loves the park pickup games, loves the lakeshore, even loves the bean.   That doesn’t mean he’s going to play there next year along side Derrick Rose. Even with all that cap space, he told the Miami Herald. “I understand the business side of it, so…
