  1. Carmelo Anthony leaves game early due to flu (Nuggets win anyway)

    Nov 29, 2010, 1:19 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Like some kind of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” ending, a little virus has done what no line of defense could. Carmelo Anthony’s 134-game regular season streak of scoring in double digits came to an end Sunday night because he had to leave the game early due to the flu. He played the first…

  2. Byron Scott fined for prototypical post-game officiating comments

    Nov 28, 2010, 7:58 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Cleveland Cavaliers

    When you say something that indicates that you expect to be fined for your comments? Yeah, you’re pretty much locking up the fact that you’ll be fined. Byron Scott went off last Friday in a 110-100 loss to Orlando saying the Cavaliers were playing against eight players and your typical “we got screwed” conversations. On…

  3. Troy Murphy says he’s ready, Avery Johnson disagrees. Fun follows.

    Nov 28, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Troy_Murphy

    Smell that? Smells a lot like trade winds to me. Those winds are coming from the direction of Troy Murphy, who is a big expiring contract, is a stretch four that teams love, can’t crack the Nets lineup (he has been inactive for 11 straight games) and is feuding with Nets coach Avery Johnson. Take…

  4. David Lee returns from gross elbow injury

    Nov 28, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    David Lee had a scary injury when he was accidentally bitten by Wilson Chandler (Chandler lost a bunch of teeth in the collision). It was was also a really gross injury. You see, the human mouth has a ton of bacteria in it and getting sharp pieces of tooth stuck in your elbow tends to…

  5. Melo likes his space in the locker room

    Nov 28, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Denver Nuggets

    Those of you who had a student transfer or move during your high school years know the sweet joy of the locker next to yours being empty. All that space! Having all that room, and if the person on the other side wasn’t using it, you could even stash stuff in it if yours became…

  6. Stephon Marbury may be exiled in Chinese basketball, too

    Nov 28, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    marbury_china

    It looked so promising — Stephon Marbury had become the biggest name in the Chinese Basketball Association, seemingly transforming a moribund franchise in a quiet city into the talk of the Chinese Basketball Association. After a sort exile from the NBA he found a place where he was the man and had found a good…

  7. Apparently LeBron bumping his coach is a big deal

    Nov 28, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    I’ve never been on an NBA floor playing basketball and then having to walk to the bench for a timeout. Maybe it’s a really easy process and in order to bump into someone you have to deliberately aim or deliberately avoid avoiding people. It doesn’t seem like that when you watch it in person or…

  8. Miami Heat hold players-only meeting after (latest) disappointing loss

    Nov 28, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    The Heat will have to forgive us, the Heat-seeking public, if we’re not overly impressed by this latest overture. It’s not that it wasn’t, that it isn’t, needed, it was and is. It’s a good sign. But it’s just one lost among so many other bad, bad signs. After Saturday night’s 95-106 loss to the…

  9. Andrew Bynum back soon. Rinse, lather, repeat.

    Nov 27, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    No, for real this time, guys! No, it’s different from last time. And the time before that. And that business about Thanksgiving. And the “progressing” stuff.  This is for real, this time. Bynum said Saturday after practice that he’s three weeks out from returning. That’s his projection, not that of the coaching staff, who are…

  10. Heat’s love affair with the long two-pointer strangling offense

    Nov 27, 2010, 9:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Miami got back in the win column Friday night against the Philadelphia 76ers. But the numbers from the winning box score are still jarring. The Heat took 31 shots from 16 feet out to the three-point line — those are long two pointers, the least efficient shot in the game — and another 16 shots…

  11. Report: Mavericks Brendan Haywood argued with coach, sat a game

    Nov 27, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) bhaywood-thumb-250x250-15436.jpg for post 3008

    Brendan Haywood has been watching his minutes get squeezed by the rejuvenated play of Tyson Chandler — then on Friday he didn’t play at all. That’s because he was suspended for a game after getting into an argument with Dallas coach Rick Carlisle, according to an ESPNDallas report. New York-based agent Andy Miller said Saturday…

  12. CDR back in the lineup tonight

    Nov 27, 2010, 6:01 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Milwaukee Bucks

    Chris Douglas-Roberts has been out since October 28th after eye surgery to repair a torn retina. (Editor’s note: Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow.) The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports he’ll be cleared for play tonight against the Pistons. The Bucks can use all the help they can get and CDR’s athleticism could help them out. The question…

  13. Three good games from Darko justifies Kahn era… or something

    Nov 27, 2010, 4:16 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    And now, a call and response…   Look out, world! You doubted the Kahn-O-Matic, now you reap the whirlwind! You all laughed when David Kahn signed Darko Milicic to a $20 million deal. You said there was no way a player with his history of massive failure was worth a four-year investment. But who’s laughing…

  14. Raptors Reggie Evans breaks foot, out for extended period

    Nov 27, 2010, 3:27 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Reggie Evans

    Toronto’s Reggie Evans is rebounding better than anyone in the NBA — he is grabbing 26 percent of the available rebounds when he is on the floor (Kevin Love is second at 23.4 percent). Evans is getting better than one in four rebounds. It was that presence inside that has allowed Andrea Bargnani to do…

  15. Phil Jackson continues a marvelous career of post-game jabbing

    Nov 27, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    jaxjabs

    Well, at least he didn’t demean any other coaches this time. In Phil Jackson’s historic, legendary career, he’s also managed to get away with being a coach who constantly demeans the other team and blames the officiating crew more than his own team for any loss. It’s a trademark of his competitiveness, a symbol of…

  16. Quote of the Day: Ben Wallace “sucks”

    Nov 27, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Clippers

    “I don’t have an offensive game,” Wallace said. “My offensive game sucks. Write that.”  - Ben Wallace, talking to MLive.com.

  17. Andre Iguodala “prepared” to be traded

    Nov 27, 2010, 9:49 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Philadelphia 76ers

    Andre Iguodala’s not saying, he’s just “sayin.” As the Sixers continue to spin wildly out of control (3-13), the odds of a full scale detonation of the roster (long overdue) seems more and more likely. And from how Iggy was talking when he spoke with NBA FanHouse, it won’t be long before he’s filling out…

  18. Renovated Madison Square Garden to have spectator bridges

    Nov 26, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    madison-square-garden

    This could be the coolest thing ever… until some guy starts dropping Junior Mints over the side. Ongoing renovations to Madison Square Garden will include new spectator bridges that will look down on the action from a unique angle, according to ESPNNewYork.com. “They’ll be like no other seat in professional sports or entertainment,” MSG President…

  19. Are the Nuggets delaying a ‘Melo trade to improve draft pick?

    Nov 26, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated put out a Carmelo Anthony trade theory via twitter on Friday: Interesting ‘Melo theory floated at me by a couple execs this week. Nets want Melo. DEN wants Nets package of Favors, Murphy, picks. But DEN thinking if they trade Melo now, that NJN pick becomes worse when Melo makes…

  20. President Obama catches elbow in pickup game, gets 12 stitches

    Nov 26, 2010, 7:27 PM EDT

    obama_stitches

    Ray Decerega of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute did not have Secret Service guns drawn on him, he was not wrestled to the ground. He may not be getting any legislation through the White House in the near future, but it could have been worse. Decerega caught President Barack Obama with an elbow during a…
