  1. Just how good is Landry Fields?

    Dec 13, 2010, 6:04 PM EDT

    France Timberwolves Knicks

    There’s no doubt that Amar’e Stoudemire’s play during the Knicks’ winning streak has been incredible. Raymond Felton has been amazing as well. Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari are doing a wonderful job of keeping the floor spaced and giving Felton and Stoudemire room to work the pick-and-roll. It’s certainly surprising that Amar’e is playing at…

  2. The Spurs have slowed down, even if their offense hasn’t

    Dec 13, 2010, 5:38 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich, Tim Duncan

    One of the more intriguing stories of this young season has been the San Antonio Spurs, who after years of grinding out games and wearing down opponents, had suddenly begun to race through games in breakneck fashion. Tony Parker (and to a lesser extent, George Hill and Manu Ginobili) bumped the pace of the San…

  3. Memphis puts Hasheem Thabeet on the trade block… hello? Anyone out there? Bueller? Bueller?

    93470239

    Hasheem Thabeet was drafted out of Connecticut No. 2 overall as a project, nobody expected anything special right away but given time he would improve. He would take steady steps forward every season and become a top-flight center down the line. So how is he doing in his second season? Well, he’s shooting 46.7 percent,…

  4. Could the New Jersey Nets become the Brooklyn New Yorkers?

    Dec 13, 2010, 5:07 PM EDT

    When the Nets finally make their long-anticipated move to Brooklyn, New York, at least part of their name is guaranteed to change. New Jersey will be stricken from the franchise’s moniker for good, but along with that adjustment is a possible alteration of the team’s surname. ‘Brooklyn Nets’ seems catchy enough, but the temptation to…

  5. Lakers write letters to injured soldiers, meet President Obama

    Dec 13, 2010, 4:02 PM EDT

    207693818

    Mr. President Barack Obama, why not just have the Lakers over to the White House again like you did last year? “Kobe and Derek have been there so often they could lead tours by themselves. Same for Coach Jackson.” (via the LA Times Mike Bresnahan’s twitter account) So they packed up the standard event every…

  6. Andrew Bynum: “I’m definitely playing tomorrow”

    Dec 13, 2010, 3:53 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers had a full practice today in Washington D.C. before heading off to meet President Barack Obama, and it sounds like Andrew Bynum had the one full hard practice he wanted before he steps back out on the court (via the LA Times Mike Bresnahan’s twitter account). “I’m definitely playing tomorrow” The Lakers take…

  7. Indiana’s settled point guard situation, not so settled

    Dec 13, 2010, 3:13 PM EDT

    Darren_Collison

    Darren Collison was the guy. Indiana needed an up-tempo point guard to run Jim O’Brien’s up-tempo offense, so they went out and got the highly-coveted Collison out of New Orleans. Except that during crunch time, T.J. Ford has been getting the minutes for the Pacers. Against the Hawks last Friday A.J. Price was the guy…

  8. Latest CBA posturing move: NBA players voting to decertify the union

    Dec 13, 2010, 2:19 PM EDT

    Ballot-box-001

    It sounds ominous, but it’s no more ominous than all the other bad signs out there. This is really more about posturing and having your ducks in a row before heading back to the negotiating table. Players from at least two NBA teams have unanimously voted to decertify the NBA Players Association, the players union,…

  9. Sneak peak at the new Air Jordans

    Dec 13, 2010, 1:51 PM EDT

    air-jordan-2011-3

    Michael Jordan hasn’t suited up for an NBA game in seven seasons, and it’s been a dozen since anything meaningful (sorry Wizards fans). Yet Jordan and the Air Jordan line still have a virtual monopoly on the basketball shoe market. So we bring you this sneak peak at the 2011 version — courtesy Counterkicks —…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: There are some long winning streaks out there

    Dec 13, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where if it were a seven-game series we’d take any of the next three teams below Dallas to come out on top, but when you win 12 in a row you get to keep the top spot. 1. Mavericks (19-4). They’ve won an even dozen in a row now. In…

  11. Robin Lopez expected back with Suns Wednesday

    Dec 13, 2010, 1:03 PM EDT

    Teams are shooting 68.3 percent at the rim against the Phoenix Suns this season, the second highest percentage in the league. The other teams in the top five? Sacramento, Washington, Detroit and Minnesota. Four other teams you don’t want to be mentioned in the same sentence with. The return of Robin Lopez to protecting the…

  12. Ball boy humbles Terrence Williams, gets him headed right direction

    Dec 13, 2010, 11:24 AM EDT

    Terrence Williams

    Terrence Williams got a timeout in the D-League recently, sent down as a wake up call to start showing up to practice and shootarounds on time. The Nets turned the D-League into the equivalent of sending your kid to your room. But that’s not what got through to him, it was a ball boy, a…

  13. Clippers owner Donald Sterling now heckling Baron Davis, too

    Dec 13, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    Image (1) dsterling-thumb-250x250-18407.jpg for post 3716

    “Why are you in the game?” “Why did you take that shot?” “You’re out of shape!” Clippers fans have been yelling that at Baron Davis for years. Now that is what Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been yelling at Davis, Marc Spears of Yahoo reports. Apparently Sterling has taunted other players as well, but like…

  14. Reports: New Jersey, maybe even Denver still in play for Carmelo Anthony

    Dec 13, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Anthony_dunk

    When Carmelo Anthony stepped on the court at Madison Square Garden Sunday, announced as part of the visiting team, cheers rained down on him like he was Willis Reed. The New York fans wanted him to know what they thought of talk of him coming to the Knicks. But despite reports yesterday that the Knicks…

  15. Baseline to Baseline Weekend Edition: The hits just keep on coming

    Dec 13, 2010, 9:34 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What happened while you were falling backwards into the endzone…. Friday Bulls 88 Lakers 84: I’m just saying. At some point, maybe, if the Lakers are in a one-possession game with less than 40 seconds remaining, two-for-one or no, maybe the Lakers should work for a quality shot instead of giving Kobe Bryant the ball…

  16. The $20,000 shot of the night

    Dec 13, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Eric Maynor

    Even the fans in Oklahoma City were shooting better than the Cleveland Cavaliers, who were in town to take on the Thunder. Robert Yanders hit a halfcourt shot to win $20,000 at the Thunder game Sunday. The Cavaliers shot 33.8 percent as a team. We’re just sayin’. Looking at my Christmas shopping list, I could…

  17. John Wall’s first game jersey sells for $7,520

    Dec 13, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    John Wall Practice Dance

    John Wall’s sweat does not come cheaply on the open market. Particularly when said sweat is attached to the jersey he wore in his first game as a pro. This season the NBA opened up a site auctioning off game-worn jerseys from this season, with the money going to charity. Among the items up for…

  18. Tyreke Evans to miss at least three games with that foot injury that wasn’t so bad

    Dec 13, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    484a2af38580570fa436a6630f3d9609-getty-103931145em028_sacramento_k

    Remember how last week Tyreke Evans said he was going to see a foot specialist, which doesn’t sound good? But then the MRI came back and it was all just a mild case of plantar fasciitis. Which hurts like someone was stabbing your heel with every step — but no fracture, so yea!! The pain…

  19. Avery Johnson: Kobe “could be 1-A” to Jordan’s 1-B

    Dec 12, 2010, 10:13 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant with Michael Jordan

    In a story that’s sure to invite no comments below, Avery Johnson today essentially said he believes Kobe Bryant to be “as great” as Michael Jordan. From the New York Post: “[Bryant] could arguably be 1. In some polls, he’ll be 2,” the Nets coach said yesterday about the players he has seen since he…

    Dec 12, 2010, 5:43 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Chris Sheridan of ESPN New York is reporting that Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony has informed his team he will only sign his extension if he is traded to the New York Knicks. Baboom. CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger has sources disputing the report that Melo has informed Denver, but confirms the decision: Melo will not re-sign…
