  1. Report: Lakers have had interest in Allen Iverson. Because that will solve everything.

    Feb 12, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Some of you may have varying opinions on Stephen A. Smith, but I would advise you to consider the following before passing judgment on the value of a rumor sourced from him. If you ever watch SAS work a room full of All-Stars, it’s just about the most fascinating thing you’ll ever see. He’s one…

  2. Metta World Peace doesn’t like that Mike Brown relies on stats that prove Metta World Peace is playing badly

    Feb 12, 2012, 9:32 AM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    Tricky thing about stats. Some of them, you can get away from. “Well, yeah, he had six turnovers, but most of those were drops by his teammates.” Or “Well, yeah, that one player named after a snake shot 28 times and only hit 11, but the offense was stagnant, he had to keep them afloat.”…

  3. Jeremy Lin comes back to earth, but inspires Knicks win

    Feb 12, 2012, 1:11 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio, Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks would not have won this game two weeks ago. And that is the true measure Linsanity — it is not just the points and assists that Jeremy Lin brings anymore, it’s about the energy and fight he has brought out of this roster. Two weeks ago the Knicks would have rolled over and…

  4. Miami’s big three tell John Wall to work hard, stay positive

    Feb 11, 2012, 10:04 PM EDT

    John Wall, Wizards, Heat

    There was a time when LeBron James was trying to figure out how to get the Cleveland Cavaliers into the playoffs, when Chis Bosh was not near enough to get Toronto over .500, when Dwyane Wade was trying to figure out how to fit is game into the NBA. Basically, a time when those three…

  5. Spike Lee texts Mark Jackson “thanks” for cutting Jeremy Lin

    Feb 11, 2012, 7:58 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Linsanity cannot be stopped in New York… well, until Carmelo Anthony comes back and takes the ball out of Jeremy Lin’s hands. But we’re not going to worry about that yet. The legend of Lin grew Friday night when he dropped 38 on the Lakers and led the Knicks to their fourth straight win while…

  6. Cavaliers’ Anderson Varejao out indefinitely with broken wrist

    Feb 11, 2012, 6:22 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    This is a big blow to a team that had been playing better than expected but with little margin for error. Cleveland forward Anderson Varejao is out indefinitely with a broken wrist, the team announced. The injury happened in the second half Friday night when Bucks forward Drew Gooden tried to slap the ball and…

  7. Happy Valentines Day from the Memphis Grizzlies

    Feb 11, 2012, 2:59 PM EDT

    ojvday

    These are so much better than those little candy hearts with the sayings on them… oh, who are we kidding, nothing is better than those little candies. Those rock. But these are close. Friday night, the last Memphis Grizzlies home game before Valentine’s Day (it’s Tuesday, go out and buy your woman something before then,…

  8. Mike Brown compares, Kobe, LeBron: It’s about the rings

    Feb 11, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    Mike Brown is different from the last Lakers coach in a lot of ways. For example, when you ask him a direct question he’ll answer it. Even if he probably shouldn’t wade into those waters. For example, the whole “Kobe or LeBron” debate. Brown talked about it to CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger and talked about it…

  9. Video: Chris Paul drains game winner in Philly

    Feb 11, 2012, 11:59 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is good. Ridiculously good. Andre Iguodala played about as good of defense as you can on Chris Paul on the final play in Philadelphia last night, and Paul twisted, turned then faded away and drained the game winner for the Clippers like a cold-blooded assassin. There should be no debate about who is…

  10. OKC’s Scott Brooks to coach Western Conference All-Stars

    Feb 11, 2012, 10:54 AM EDT

    Scott Brooks

    Congratulations Scott Brooks, your team is so good you don’t get a vacation. While Gregg Popovich is sipping wine somewhere and Vinny Del Negro is… well, I don’t want to know what Del Negro is doing, Brooks will be coaching the Western Conference All-Stars in Orlando Feb. 26. The coach of the team with the…

  11. Video: All he does is Lin

    Feb 11, 2012, 9:54 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    The Lakers were going to be the first real test, the first good defense Jeremy Lin had to face. Well, 38 points and 7 assists later, he’s made a statement.

  12. Video: Dwyane Wade with the ally-oop to LeBron

    Feb 10, 2012, 9:39 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Your Comcast announcer is correct — being the lone defender back on a 2-on-1 break and seeing it is LeBron James and Dwyane Wade is about as bad as it gets.

  13. Derrick Rose to sit against Bobcats Friday

    Feb 10, 2012, 7:32 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This is the smart thing to do. The Chicago Bulls need Derrick Rose — but they need him more Sunday against Boston and going forward as we crawl toward the playoffs the playoffs than they do Friday against the lowly Charlotte Bobcats. Rose is out Friday night, reports CSNChicago.com. C.J. Watson gets the start in…

  14. Wizards would like an actual home-court advantage

    Feb 10, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    John Wall, Trevor Booker, JaVale McGee

    There are about 30 NBA towns where MVP chants for Kobe Bryant have rung out. Pretty much the same for LeBron James and Derrick Rose. But it’s been different for the Washington Wizards — their home games have sounded more like road games at times. Combine the fact that the Wizards are not a real…

  15. Should NBA All-Star game have home court in balance like MLB? No.

    Feb 10, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    Kevin Love, Tim Duncan

    Kevin Love is flat out wrong. Let me be clear, I like the guy. I like his game, I like him (in our limited interactions), but this is like suggesting the second season of Friday Night Lights was the best one. It is objectively wrong. Here is what Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press tweeted.…

  16. Facebook drive started to get Will Ferrell to do All-Star Intros

    Feb 10, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Will Ferrell

    Will Ferrell killed it in New Orleans doing the introductions with the Bulls/Hornets game the other day… Why not have him do the player introductions at the All-Star Game in Orlando at the end of the month? There’s now a Facebook page/campaign where you can like the idea, with the goal of showing so much…

  17. Brandon Jennings is “doing his homework on big-market teams,” but winning may entice him to stay with the Bucks

    Feb 10, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    Brandon Jennings made plenty of Bucks fans nervous on Friday, thanks to a quote about his thoughts on future free agency that was reported by Chris Broussard of ESPN.com “I am going to keep my options open, knowing that the time is coming up,” Jennings said. “I’m doing my homework on big-market teams.” The “big-market…

  18. Popovich: Manu Ginobili to return Saturday vs. Nets

    Feb 10, 2012, 2:10 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzles v San Antionio Spurs - Game Two

    The San Antonio Spurs have done surprisingly well without Manu Ginobili — they have gone 15-7 and won six in a row. We can debate if Tony Parker should be an All-Star or not, but he has stepped up and carried a big load the last 22 games. Saturday night, Manu Ginobili will be back,…

  19. Kobe Bryant not down with “Linsanity.” Not yet anyway.

    Feb 10, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If you are going to impress Kobe Bryant, you’re going to have to do a lot more than have three good games in February. A lot more. Jeremy Lin is a sensation, “Linsanity” is sweeping New York as Kobe Bryant and the Lakers come to town Friday night. Two weeks ago the Knicks looked lost,…

  20. Winderman: The fuzzy line of NBA talk, tampering

    Feb 10, 2012, 1:11 PM EDT

    APTOPIX NBA All Star Basketball

    Sorry, just not sure how this works anymore, when it comes to what is tampering what is innocent conversation, and, frankly what is NBA protocol and civility. Perhaps because Kobe Bryant and LeBron James aren’t impending free agents, it’s all simply viewed as innocuous. So Larry Bird, in his role as Pacers president, talks freely…
