    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    “I’d buy it and tell him to sign it.” — Ron Artest, talking about the Clippers Blake Griffin and how he has posterized guys all over the league and Ron saying he’d love that to happen to him. “I hope he dunks on me. His highlights is stupid.” (Quotes via Kevin Ding of the Orange…

    Dec 9, 2010, 8:50 AM EDT

    George Karl, Kevin Garnett

    Remember when Charlie Villanueva tweeted that Kevin Garnett crossed the line saying he looked like a cancer patient? And Garnett defended himself by saying no, I called you a cancer to your team and the league? Ahh, those were the days. Cancer patients found the entire thing pretty distasteful. Rightfully.

    This was the kind of night where having NBA League Pass is a joy — full slate of games and four come down to buzzer beaters. Of course, you missed it because you had to have dinner with the in-laws. We know how that goes. So just watch the highlight package below and see the…

    What you missed while reading the Incredible Hulk Buddhist twitter timeline… Heat 111, Jazz 98: When LeBron James is the ball handler attacking the rim and Zydrunas Ilgauskas is setting the picks and knocking down the pick-and-pop jumpers, it is going to be tough to defend. Together they were 19-30 for 49 points. Wade had…

  5. Andre Miller calls league “soft” after suspension

    Dec 8, 2010, 10:22 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Andre Miller

    Andre Miller did not play Tuesday night for the Portland Trail Blazers — the first time in 632 regular season games, or since the Matrix Reloaded. The reason is a blindside check on Blake Griffin. If he could have, he would have had his stick up on that one and slammed him into the boards.…

  6. Winderman: The mid-level exception battleground — do you want two Jason Kaponos?

    Dec 8, 2010, 8:58 PM EDT

    Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout

    How generous of the players’ union, offering to include not one but two mid-level exceptions in their latest collective-bargaining proposal.

    hornetssale

    It will be the “running of the rumors” over the next months as the NBA looks to find someone to buy the New Orleans Hornets. Ideally someone from the city with deep pockets. Someone who wants to keep the team there and has the means to make that happen. Say, someone like Yahoo co-founder David…

    Griffin_Jordan

    Don’t go there with the “they should make more shots in the game” comments. Blake Griffin took time out from hanging in front of the television watching SportsCenter (“Hey, there I an again!”) to go shoot trick shots for your entertainment. You should thank them. Then you should watch the video.

    Dec 8, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 3: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    Remember back a couple years ago, two researchers released a study saying that black officials called slightly fewer penalties on black players and white officials called fewer penalties on white players?

    Dec 8, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    Last season the Memphis Grizzlies were just below .500 (40-42), just out of the playoffs in the West. So they brought the band back together, expected a step forward and… Not so much.

    Dec 8, 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

    CPaul-layup

    There’s a lot of people around the league that say you don’t really know much until you’re about 20 games into an NBA season, then the patterns have established themselves. Well, we’re about 20 games in now, one quarter of the season gone. Patterns are established. So… Let’s give out some first-quarter awards to players…

    Well, it’s not even noon but we have our winner for weirdest story of the day locked up. My work here is done.
