  1. How about Angry Larry Birds?

    Angry Birds is the crack of phone games. Completely addictive and you keep chasing the high of killing those pigs even when you know you should be working or talking to loved ones or paying attention to the road while driving. What would be better? Angry Larry Birds. On NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon…

  2. Agent denies report Ron Artest wouldn’t mind being traded

    Feb 2, 2011, 3:44 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE 3:44 pm: In a predictable response, Ron Artest‘s agent denied that his client wants to be traded from the Lakers and told that to the Los Angeles Times Lakers blog. “Ron is not looking for a trade,” (David) Bauman said. “The frustration is there among everyone on the team. But Ron is a Laker,…

    We told you it was a real long shot in the first place, but now Dirk Nowitzki has helped us out by throwing a little cold water on the idea of him playing in Germany. But like FIBA he left himself some wiggle room. Here is what Nowitzki told the Dallas Morning News: “If it’s…

  4. Deron Williams out again Wednesday, to see wrist specialist

    Feb 2, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    The Utah Jazz are not right without Deron Williams. No offense intended Earl Watson, but the offense is sluggish and sloppy with him out. If you’ve seen the Jazz without Williams, it has not been pretty (even if they have won two of three). It will not be pretty tonight either, when Williams misses a…

  5. You’re watching: NBA television ratings continue to rise

    Feb 2, 2011, 1:25 PM EDT

    TNT Set

    Maybe it’s LeBron James and the Heat. Maybe it’s traditional powers like the Lakers and Celtics being in the mix. Maybe it’s young stars like Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin. Maybe it’s having the Knicks relavent again in New York. Whatever it is, there is a real buzz around the NBA this season, and the…

  6. Brandon Bass could be out a while for Orlando

    Feb 2, 2011, 12:10 PM EDT

    basstradeblock

    Brandon Bass has stepped up this season — especially as a starter since the big trades — and been a solid part of the Magic front line. There aren’t a lot of points in the paint left or rebounds to grab when you play along side Dwight Howard, but Bass had averaged 11.6 points and…

  7. LeBron says he’s still motivated by Orlando’s summer comments

    Feb 2, 2011, 11:43 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    LeBron James and the Miami Heat have already played the Orlando Magic twice — but don’t think he has moved on from this summer’s snide comments by Orlando brass. LeBron’s comments yesterday showed he will be up for Thursday night’s meeting. “The simple fact that it’s a division opponent, that means a lot,” James said.…

  8. Kobe Bryant tells Pau Gasol to be the Black Swan

    Feb 2, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol is a lot of things. Skilled. Spanish. Intellectual. A good guy. But he often defers. When Kobe Bryant steps up his aggressive play, Gasol will fade back. That’s not what Kobe wants — he wants a true partner — so he explained it to Gasol is an intellectual (or at least pseudo-intellectual) way,…

  9. Report: Pistons want to move Rip Hamilton but not Tayshaun Prince

    Feb 2, 2011, 10:06 AM EDT

    TPrince_sad

    Maybe this report is part of a planned smokescreen. Pistons fans should hope it is. Detroit is still trying to move Richard Hamilton — with no success — but does not want to deal Tayshaun Prince before the deadline, according to a tweet from Marc Stein of ESPN. The whole Hamilton thing makes sense. Of…

  11. Video: The top 10 dunks in January

    Feb 2, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Baby, it’s cold outside. To warm you up a little on this winter day we can’t offer a nice bowl of chicken noodle soup, but we can offer dunks. Ten of them. The best from January. Yes, you can be sure Blake Griffin makes an appearance on the list.

  12. It’s official, Doc Rivers is your East All-Star coach

    Feb 2, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    We’ll find out Thursday how many Celtics make the All-Star reserves — it should be four — we know at least one Celtic is going. Doc Rivers is your official Eastern Conference coach for the All-Star Game. With the Celtics win in Sacramento Tuesday, Boston (37-11) is assured of having the best record in the…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another Wizards road loss sets up a “showdown” in Cleveland

    Feb 2, 2011, 7:34 AM EDT

    John Wall

    What you missed while wondering why you were watching highlights of Super Bowl media day…. Hornets 97, Wizards 89: For the first time in 306 games Emeka Okafor has to sit one out, and Jason Smith steps in and tries to Wally Pip him. Smith had 20 points on 11 shots, established himself early (10…

  14. Massive Midwest snowstorm strands Celtics in Sacramento

    UPDATE Feb. 2, 3:16 am: It’s official, they are stuck and spending an extra night in Sacramento. They will try to get home Wednesday. “We would have preferred to go further East, just so we can get closer to our time zone,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “At the end of the day, we just…

  15. Magic Johnson is down with Lakers trade. We must stop the madness.

    Feb 1, 2011, 9:51 PM EDT

    Image (1) magic-johnson-thumb-250x166-16283.jpg for post 3243

    Mitch Kupchak tried to give his Lakers a swift kick in the motivation by talking trades. Not that Kupchak wouldn’t consider it, but he has no reasonable options so it was more talk than legitimate option. Lakers fans didn’t care, they jumped on it. Today, no-longer-a-Lakers-owner Magic Johnson (he still has a statue out in…

  16. Cousins says Brian Shaw motivated him against the Lakers

    Feb 1, 2011, 7:29 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins is one of the most talented rookies in this year’s draft class. He’s also one of the most mercurial, and his play has been inconsistent throughout this season. However, the lightbulb seems to have gone off for Cousins recently: after the Bobcats held him to 9 points on 2-8 shooting on January 15th,…

  17. Where will Jason Richardson go?

    Feb 1, 2011, 7:15 PM EDT

    Jason Richardson, Epke Udoh

    Orlando Magic shooting guard Jason Richardson is currently in the final season of the six-year, $70 million contract extension he signed in 2004. Since signing that extension, the 30-year old Richardson has carved out a niche for himself as a three-point gunner with good athleticism and the ability to finish at the rim. However, according…

  18. Tyreke Evans, Blake Griffin headline rookie/sophomore game

    Feb 1, 2011, 6:44 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans All-Star

    John Wall vs. Brandon Jennings. Serge Ibaka matched up on Blake Griffin. DeJuan Blair against DeMarcus Cousins. Those would be facinating matchups if any of those players really cared about the NBA All-Star Rookie/Sophomore game (formally called the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge). But alas, they don’t, still we should get a few highlights. Wall lobbing ally-oops…

  19. Iverson out another 6 to 8 weeks after calf procedure

    Feb 1, 2011, 4:47 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Allen Iverson’s calf issue that brought him home from Turkey turns out to be pretty serious. Ken Berger of CBSSports.com got the details from Dr. James Andrews, who said Iverson could be out another two months or more. Andrews said Tuesday that Iverson requires “prolonged rest” totaling at least 6-8 weeks, along with an injection…

  20. Phil Jackson: Trades? Sure. But don’t expect a big one.

    Feb 1, 2011, 3:57 PM EDT

    Image (1) pjackson_finals-thumb-250x140-13332.jpg for post 2458

    No NBA fans can overreact quite like Lakers fans. It’s not like the team has won back-to-back NBA titles with this core group (oh, wait…). They are struggling in January and the GM mentions maybe they should consider a trade and suddenly message boards are filled up with ways to move Ron Artest for Kevin…
