    Shannon Brown, Marcin Gortat, Andre Miller

    Ty Lawson is the starting point guard on the Denver Nuggets. Which is how it should be as he is the best point guard on the Denver Nuggets. But veteran Andre Miller thinks he should be starting somewhere,  he told Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida. And if the free agent to be can’t do that…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kobe drops another 40

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while you tried to shame your kid into behaving…. Clippers 95, Heat 89: The game where the rims were afraid was our game of the night. Lakers 90, Jazz 87 (OT): The Lakers might not have gotten to the overtime without Kobe Bryant dropping 40 points — but when Kobe went cold…

  3. LeBron finally aggressive late, but Clippers hand Heat another loss

    Jan 12, 2012, 3:19 AM EST

    Chris Paul, Chris Bosh

    Last year’s “it” team faced off against this year’s “it” squad and fans from both sides got what they wanted. Sort of. They both got a wildly entertaining contest that had the intensity of May. But it came wrapped in a game where it looked like both teams were on the second night of a…

  4. Blake Ahearn shows he’s among the best at the NBA D-League Showcase

    Jan 12, 2012, 2:02 AM EST

    Blake Ahearn

    Blake Ahearn has been in the NBA Development League for longer than most people would like considering he’s played 149 games in the NBA’s official minor league since coming out of Missouri State University in 2007. He may have changed that this week, however, while starring for the hometown Reno Bighorns at the eighth annual…

  5. Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey is a big believer in talent at NBA D-League Showcase

    Daryl Morey

    The eighth annual NBA D-League Showcase is nearly complete in lovely Reno, Nev., as all 16 teams having completed at least one of their two scheduled games at the annual scouting event for the NBA’s official minor league. Two players have already earned call-ups to the big league since the Showcase began, but Houston Rockets…

  6. Bulls’ Derrick Rose sits due to sprained toe

    Anthony Randolph, Luke Ridnour, Derrick Rose

    If you wondered just what happens to the Chicago Bulls offense when Derrick Rose isn’t there to create everything, watch Wednesday night’s game. Rose did not suit up against the Wizards and John Wall due to a sprained big toe. “It’s a pain tolerance thing. It’s a sprain. He’s gotten a lot of treatment. He…

  7. Nash calls Kobe’s 48 against the Suns “one of the best performances” he’s seen

    Jan 11, 2012, 7:15 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Grant Hill

    By now you’ve surely heard about Kobe Bryant‘s 48 points he put up in a win over the Suns on Tuesday. You likely are also aware that Bryant is playing through torn wrist ligaments in his shooting hand, and that perhaps he’s been shooting too much, to the detriment of this Lakers team. The fact…

  8. Video: Utah Jazz mascot drops cake from upper deck

    Jan 11, 2012, 7:07 PM EST

    Jazz-Bear2-300x296

    I am not convinced this is organic, it may well have been staged. Even so, it’s funny. Tuesday night Jazz are celebrating the birthday of a season ticket holder and the team’s furry bear-like mascot — named “The Jazz,” how long did it take them to come up with that? — comes out with a…

  9. Bulls make Mike James second NBA call-up from D-League Showcase

    Jan 11, 2012, 5:20 PM EST

    Mike James

    The NBA Development League Showcase is designed to allow its top players a chance to show NBA decision makers that they’ve developed enough to make in the NBA. Erie BayHawks point guard Mike James came into the league without much developing left, but he took full advantage of having NBA decision makers witness his comeback…

  10. Video: Brandan Wright can jump very, very high

    In case you missed it, one more highlight from Tuesday night to whet your appetite for a full slate of games on Wednesday (highlighted by the Heat at the Clippers in a game where we feel sorry for the rims). Brandan Wright of the now 5-5 Mavericks can jump out of the building, which works…

  11. Doc Rivers wants Celtics to throw first punch. Figuratively.

    Jan 11, 2012, 4:26 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    The Boston Celtics won banner 17 in part because of their size — there are a big, physical team. Doc Rivers wants his Celtics to start showing it again, he told the Boston Herald. “We’re just not there yet as a team,” Rivers said after yesterday’s practice. “I think we’ve got a tough group of…

  12. It’s All About Having An NBA Skill At D-League Showcase

    Jan 11, 2012, 3:31 PM EST

    Booker Woodfox

    The eighth annual NBA Development League Showcase is officially halfway over with the conclusion of Tuesday night’s games, but there’s plenty of talent still hoping to standout in front of the bevy of decision makers that made the trip to Reno, Nev., for the D-League’s premier event of the season. In order to get their…

  13. Curry gets a second opinion on ankle, nothing changes

    Jan 11, 2012, 3:17 PM EST

    Stephen Curry, Nicola Vucevic, Lou Williams, Jrue Holiday

    So, it’s a sprain. Stephen Curry has rolled his ankle three times this young season and is out a while to rest it. But since he had surgery on this same ankle, he decided to go back and have the surgeon — Dr. Bob Anderson — take a look at it. Basically he saw what…

  14. Kobe Bryant wants you to keep on doubting him

    Jan 11, 2012, 2:14 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    Six years ago, if Kobe Bryant dropped 48 points in a game, we called it Tuesday. It seemed like nothing out of the ordinary. There were a couple highlights on SportsCenter, his fantasy owners patted themselves on the back, and then we pretty much moved on because we saw this all the time. But in…

  15. Flip Saunders thinks John Wall played too many summer games

    Jan 11, 2012, 1:42 PM EST

    Flip Saunders John Wall

    The counterbalance to the suits and greed of the NBA lockout this past summer was the rise of the rec league games. The Goodman League. The Drew League. Rucker Park. More than ever NBA players were rolling into these leagues and playing, and soon the leagues were playing each other like the epic Goodman vs.…

  16. Larry Brown wants “badly” to coach again, not sure it happens

    Jan 11, 2012, 12:15 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    Aggrey Sam sums it up well in one line of his interview with Larry Brown — the legendary coach “likely forgotten more basketball than anybody reading this has ever seen.” He’s won an NBA title with the Pistons, an NCAA title with Kansas, took UCLA to the final four and even took the pre-Griffin Clippers…

  17. D-League Showcase Continues With Two More NBA TV Games On Wednesday

    The NBA Development League’s annual Showcase is halfway through with eight games already having been played in lovely Reno, but the show goes on — and could even get better — when things gets underway on Wednesday. NBA TV’s live coverage tips off at 1 p.m. as Ricky Davis continues his comeback attempt against Eric…

  18. Wednesday And-1 links: Anderson Varejao is no Magic Johnson

    Jan 11, 2012, 11:29 AM EST

    Anderson Varejao

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Anderson Varejao is no Magic Johnson. Here is the video proof. Paul Pierce misses having Delonte West around. By the way, West apologized for his…

  19. Video: Two fans just sit down on Mavericks’ bench

    Jan 11, 2012, 10:54 AM EST

    fans on Mavs bench grab

    We’ve all done it. Left our not so great seats, gotten a beer and then when we walk back into the arena you move down to better seats that some company couldn’t give away to a client or secretary for the night. But there are limits to how far down you should go. Like, say,…

  20. The man who cut Michael Jordan in high school… sort of

    Jan 11, 2012, 10:26 AM EST

    Michael Jordan dunk

    It is one of the legends of Michael Jordan — that as a high-school sophomore he was cut from his high school team. Jordan, ever the master at using slights real and perceived as fuel to drive him, took this insult as one of the things that pushed him through high school to North Carolina…
