  1. Denver's shopping for another big to add to their fleet

    Feb 10, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    With Nene, Kenyon Martin, Birdman Anderson, and Carmelo Anthony, along with some bench guys in a pinch, you’d think the Nuggets, sitting in the 2nd seed would be feeling pretty good about their team and in particular their frontcourt. And you would be wrong for thinking so. The Denver Post reports that Denver is considering…

  2. The 'fans cheering for food' thing has gone too far

    Feb 10, 2010, 8:47 PM EDT

    This must stop. Somewhere, we must draw the line on providing food rewards for team performance that warp decent fan behavior. The tacos at Staples are the most egregious example, as the die-hard fans since 2008 who showed up in the late 2nd start chanting for tacos while gathering their things with time left. It’s…

  3. Blazers Coach McMillan believes Red Bull did not give his team wings

    Feb 10, 2010, 2:04 AM EDT

    The Blazers continue to give it the ol’ college try despite losing half their team to injury (including their coach splitting an ACL- seriously, what did Portland do to the Fates?). Granted, sometimes the ol’ college try is interpreted literally, clanging mid-range jumpers and lacking a consistent defensive force inside, but you know what we…

  4. Larry Riley can't find a sucker

    Feb 10, 2010, 12:49 AM EDT

    There’s a line in the poker flick “Rounders” to the effect of “Listen, here’s the thing. If you can’t spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you ARE the sucker.” Perhaps Larry Riley of the sinking ship S.S. Warriors should give that flick a gander. A quote from a recent…

  5. Here's a shocker: Kwame Brown is struggling

    Feb 9, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    Kwame Brown had finally faded from the cruel limelight of first-round-bust scrutiny. After getting traded as the key joke piece in the Pau Gasol deal, Brown wound up in Detroit, hoping for a fresh start. And his first season was not a complete disaster. This season, though, he’s found himself benched because he’s failing to…

  6. Zydrunas Ilgauskas is a puppet, and not just in the trade-bait sense

    Feb 8, 2010, 4:04 PM EDT

    At first I hated the LeBron-Kobe puppet commercials, then I started to like them, then I loathed them, and now I’ve kind of come to terms with them. Unlike the advertisements for Tyler Perry’s ‘House of Pain’ (very funny), my skin no longer crawls when I see puppets that do not resemble the stars behaving…

  7. Bobcats still face uncertainty

    Feb 8, 2010, 3:12 PM EDT

    The Bobcats were dogged by pretty much every pundit coming into this season. Widely considered to take a vast step back from their near-playoff-entrance season (despite losing only Emeka Okafor’s tallness in return for Tyson Chandler’s tallness), the Bobcats started the season in full-blown disaster mode; the offense looked like something your cat vomited up…

  8. Beware fake All-Star gear, league says

    Feb 8, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    The NBA has put out a news release on how to avoid counterfeit All-Star gear during the league’s big weekend coming up, according to the Dallas Morning News’ Eddie Sefko. Among the suggestions are shopping at NBA-authorized locations (naturally), looking for the league’s custom hologram, and avoiding items with ripped tags or irregular markings. Apparently…

  9. LeBron James is sort of flirting with historical greatness

    Feb 8, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Here’s the bottom line. Yes, LeBron’s triple-crown numbers are amazing. The only other players to average 29/7/8 over a full season are, you guessed it, Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson. However, LeBron’s scoring efficiency is a much better indicator of how LeBron is helping the Cavs win than his rebounding numbers. When you consider LeBron’s…

  10. Is Terrence Williams a late dunk contest participant?

    Feb 8, 2010, 10:40 AM EDT

    Finding out tomorrow if I’m in the dunking contest From Looking at the currently scheduled participants, only Gerald Wallace is currently facing an injury, with a tweaked hamstring he played through against the Hornets on Saturday. If Wallace can’t or won’t go, it removes the lone “star” of the dunk contest. It also brings into…

  11. His name is David Stern and this is his collective bargaining boomstick

    Feb 8, 2010, 9:29 AM EDT

    The owners want to take a far greater percentage of the basketball-related income. They want to pay millions less for maximum deals and shorten contracts. Most of all, they want a hard salary cap and assurances that protect themselves against a diminished economy and, well, themselves. Everything is hurtling toward a 2011 lockout, a negotiation…
