  2. Kobe Bryant can run again, but is a long way from playing

    Apr 14, 2012, 7:43 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    You will not be seeing the Black Mamba much for the remainder of the season. As Kobe Bryant coninues to deal with a painful shin injury, the Lakers are expected to be extremely cautious with him in advance of the NBA playoffs. What had started as a relatively minor injury has brought up talk that…

  3. Wizards go over a quarter’s worth of time without a field goal against the Knicks. Gross.

    Apr 14, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Randy Wittman

    The Wizards went 12:09 without a field goal against the Knicks Friday night. Twelve minutes. Tuhwellve-oh-nine. That’s just sad. Sad, sad, sad, sad, sad. But Knicks fans didn’t find it sad. They found it funny. And chant-worthy. From FoxSports.com: At one point toward the end of the run, with the Wizards still stuck on 47…

  4. Video: In other news, Russell Westbrook is not human

    Apr 14, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    Oh, good gravy. It’s the extension that sells this one. Grabs it at the furthest point of the cockback, and then the total follow through in one motion. That is not basketball. That is violent art with some props.

  5. Mike Brown leaves Staples Center prior to Lakers-Nuggets due to personal reasons

    Apr 13, 2012, 10:59 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

  7. Josh Smith and the painful mystery of faith

    Apr 11, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    You want him to get it. So badly. But in wanting him to get it, you’re missing how much he’s doing. If you focus on what he’s doing, you’re missing how much he doesn’t get it. And all the while you’re not sure if he’s just oblivious to what goes on around him, to the reasons…

  8. Manu Ginobili and the dark cloud of the Spurs on the Western Conference horizon

    Apr 5, 2012, 10:56 AM EDT

    Manu Ginobili

    If the Spurs are going to win the title this season it will be on the back of Manu Ginobili. That has become abundantly clear over the past six weeks or so. The Spurs are facing what can genuinely be considered their 14th consecutive season of championship contention, which is, in every way possible, completely…

  9. Everything is no big deal to the Miami Heat, including blowout to Boston Celtics

    Apr 2, 2012, 2:21 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers

    There is no “maybe this is a good thing” here for the Miami Heat. There should be no “just the wake up call they needed.” This team, with the aspirations it has, should not be looking for wake-up calls. They should be looking for toe tags. Miami’s 91-72 loss to the Celtics on Sunday should…

  10. Boston would like to state for the record that they are not too old, are still a contender, and you should not mess with them

    Apr 1, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    In Boston’s 92-71 win over Miami on Sunday, the Celtics opened the game and took their will to live. Rajon Rondo decided from the outset to destroy the Heat and did so, slicing in-between and through the Heat. There’s a lot to be said about Miami’s effort, cohesion, and generally disturbing level of terribleness. But…

  11. Thunder show off against Bulls as a question of athleticism comes into play

    Apr 1, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    Derrick was out, and had he played, this would have been a totally different game. Let’s just get that out in front right now. There is just no way to understate the impact that Derrick Rose, last season’s MVP, might have had on the Thunder’s 92-78 win vs. the Bulls on Sunday. This team is…

  12. Andrew Bynum has very little respect for Mike Brown’s… huddles

    Apr 1, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Andrew Bynum had the big blow-up with Mike Brown a few weeks ago where he tossed up a three, and then pouted about being benched for the three and poor defensive rotations. And on Sunday, after a disappointing win, if there is such a thing, over the New Orleans Hornets, reporters asked Bynum about Mike…

  13. Rose to miss Sunday game against Thunder

    Apr 1, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    From the Chicago Tribune: Bulls guard Derrick Rose will miss his 10th consecutive game Sunday at Oklahoma City as he continues to recover from a groin injury.

  15. Joakim Noah can dance if he wants to, he can leave your friends behind

    Mar 31, 2012, 4:09 PM EDT

    oakim Noah

    Presented without comment. From CSNChicago: OK, fine, two comments. 1. Apparently it’s fine to dance after a win, just not during a win, on the sideline. 2. Joakim Noah is awesome.

  16. Video: Kevin Garnett sets up shop in Al Jefferson’s cerebral cortex

    Mar 31, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett calls out to his team mates as the Celtics take on the Milwaukee Bucks during the second half of a NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    This is your monthly reminder that Kevin Garnett is a real sweetheart. I won’t revisit the debates on Garnett. You have your opinion at this point and it won’t change. His antics are either the mark of a true warrior or the silly behavior of a fake bully. His intensity is either an overdramatic performance…

  17. The Nine Circles of Bobcats Hell

    Mar 31, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    hellrufus

    The Bobcats are in Hell. Not literally. They’re still alive. They still get paid. They’re operational. They’re not tortured with fire. Other than that, though, yeah, pretty hell like. The team is on pace for historic levels of failure. It is literally just about as bad as it can get. There is nearly no reason…

  18. Thibodeau says he’s “fine” with contract situation as report states … well, that he’s not

    Mar 31, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    It’s easy to get lost in the recent past. The Bulls are a monstrously successful organization. They’ve won six championships in team history, all in the past 21 years, and have consistently made the playoffs. They’re an ATM machine for their owner, Jerry Reinsdorf, who also owns the White Sox, an equally successful venture. They…

  19. Video: J.J. Hickson violates DeAndre Jordan’s personal space

    Mar 31, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, J.J. Hickson

    J.J. Hickson is considered a bust, a washout, a nobody. He was supposed to be a building block in Cleveland, flamed out, was traded to Sacramento for Omri Casspi and a draft pick, flamed out, was waived. Portland picked him up after they started tanking to take a flyer on him. He wasn’t supposed to…

  20. Thunder roll on Miami as Heat roll over

    Mar 26, 2012, 1:36 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Miami Heat 103-87 Sunday night behind Kevin Durant‘s 29 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. It was an MVP performance by Durant and a statement game for the Thunder. For the Heat, it was yet another in a long series of headache-inducing performances in which the Heat faced the…

  21. Spurs list Tim Duncan as “DND – OLD”

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:19 PM EDT

    spursboxdndold2

    The Spurs are the funniest team in the league you don’t know is funny. From their HEB commercials to Popovich clowning Shaq with a Hack-A-Shaq two seconds into the game, they come off as a boring club, but really, they’re pretty entertaining. On the official roster that each team submits before the game, the Spurs…

  22. 5 Things to Watch: Heat-Thunder, a potential Finals preview worth playing

    Mar 25, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

      Best in the East vs. best in the West. Nope, that’s not right. The two clearly best teams in the league. Well, no, not really with how open the West is. OK, how about just: A more-probable-than-on-average chance that these two teams will meet in the Finals. There. Sufficiently hedged. The Miami Heat and…

  23. Cavs might bring back Jamison next season

    Mar 25, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    When the Cavaliers traded for Antawn Jamison, it was supposed to be the move that brought them a championship, the final piece of the puzzle for LeBron James to bring a title to Cleveland. Instead, Jamison never showed the ability he had when he was younger, couldn’t adjust to the system fast enough, and had…

  24. Brook Lopez out a while longer as CT scan reveals another “small crack”

    Mar 25, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    On the list of guys who you should feel bad for regarding this season, Brook Lopez has to be one of the bigger candidates. Imagine if your job kept working with you to get you back at work from an injury, but you knew the only reason they were is that they want to use…

  25. LeBron James and a story of humanity you should probably read

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    There are going to be comments below and tweets about this story that are going to make you question whether we shouldn’t just abandon society and live as separate lives as we can, because we’re truly vile. As an incredibly funny man once said, “We’re a virus with shoes.” But the story needs to be…
