  1. Winderman: Cold dissection of every Miami Heat word may lead to fewer of them

    Nov 18, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    LeBron_media

    The media work room at AmericanAirlines Arena is the last thing you would expect in South Florida. It is a frosty experience. How cold? A certain transplanted journalist brought in to cover the team this season has been known to wear a ski cap while filing his articulate-yet-arctic postgame viewpoints. Yet the chill doesn’t stop…

  2. As expected, Cavaliers send Christian Eyenga to D-League

    Don’t worry Christian Eyenga, Erie is lovely this time of year — feel the lake effect! As has been expected, the Cavaliers have formally sent Eyenga down to the Erie Bayhawks of the D-League. He will open the season with them this week. Which is what should happen — Eyenga is a swingman with some…

  3. Acie Law may be on way out in Memphis

    Nov 18, 2010, 10:44 AM EDT

    Acie Law Ricardo Marsh

    Acie Law was brought in to be the backup point guard to Mike Conley. That has gone about as well as the midterm elections did for the Democrats. Rookie Greivis Vasquez has beaten out Law at the backup point spot. Through 10 games Law is giving them little — 1.2 points per game on 16.7…

  4. What is next for Greg Oden?

    Friday, Greg Oden will have surgery on his knee. Again. Once again for a non-contact injury. This is a genuinely good person, a smart guy whose body continually betrays him. And that is sad. But we have to ask ourselves what is next? For him? For the Blazers? The team did not offer an extension…

  5. Video: Michael Beasley’s game winner

    Nov 18, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/3ZryegeWvkg?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Michael Beasley has been playing some good ball. He had 33 points on 14-23 shooting. And when the game is on the line for Minnesota he got the call — a pure isolation play for him. Credit where credit is due, he drains it. The Wolves get the win. We may not be totally sold…

  6. Stoudemire reminded that losing sucks

    Nov 18, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    Stoudemire_frustrated

    Amar’e Stoudemire has lived inside the fantasy world that Steve Nash creates for the last few years. A utopia of open looks and perfect passes in a city where it never snows. New York has been a different story. It’s been the gritty reality of the NBA, and that’s an adjustment. So is the losing,…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Heat are running and cruising

    Nov 18, 2010, 4:17 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    What you missed while listening to Johnny Depp read Keith Richards autobiography… Our game of the night is a reminder that the Spurs are still the Spurs, click for details. Heat 123, Suns 96: The Heat came out and wanted to make sure Chris Bosh felt loved and wanted — he had the first eight…

  8. Game of the night: The Spurs would like your attention, please

    Nov 18, 2010, 12:51 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili

    After 24 minutes of decent offensive execution with poor finishing, the Spurs’ third quarter was an explosion of contrasts. San Antonio’s inexplicable misses were made right again, and so were some of their lower quality looks, for that matter. The Spurs just went to that happy place, where every three-pointer is accompanied by candy raining…

  9. Quote of the Night: Chris Bosh wants to chill

    Nov 18, 2010, 12:10 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh Chilling

    “[Heat coach Erik Spoelstra] knows he has to meet us halfway. He wants to work, we wanna chill, but we’re going to have to work to get everything down, to get our timing down, and to get our chemistry down.” – Heat forward Chris Bosh, after a breakout 35-point performance in a dominant win over…

  10. Greg Oden to have microfracture surgery, out for season again

    Nov 17, 2010, 10:38 PM EDT

    greg_oden

    Greg Oden is about to miss another season with his second microfracture surgery, the team has announced. Another injury to his knees, something that has to make you question if we will ever see the injury plagued former No. 1 overall pick on the court again. The Basketball Gods have it in for this man,…

  11. Rip Hamilton ejected five minutes into Lakers/Pistons game

    Nov 17, 2010, 10:20 PM EDT

    RHamilton_ejection

    How you feel about Rip Hamilton’s ejection less than five minutes into the Lakers game against the Pistons is like a Rorschach test for how you feel about the NBA’s new “respect for the game” enforcement and use of technical fouls. At the 7:01 mark of the first quarter, Hamilton was whistled for his second…

  12. Tony Parker comments on his divorce; pulls curtain between public, private life

    Nov 17, 2010, 9:01 PM EDT

    Eva Longoria Parker, Tony Parker

    A divorce scandal has no place in a basketball headline, yet here we are. The story isn’t likely to go away soon considering the nature of the rumors being circulated and the profiles of both Tony Parker and his soon-to-be ex-wife Eva Longoria Parker, but the Spurs’ point guard did what he could to make…

  13. New Warriors owners not sure how they outbid Larry Ellison either

    Nov 17, 2010, 8:33 PM EDT

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    There was a given going into the sale of the Warriors — if he wanted the team, Silicon Valley mogul Larry Ellison could win the auction. Easy. You know how rich Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov is? Trail Blazer owner Paul Allen (he of the ground floor of Microsoft)? Ellison is worth more than both of…

  14. Celtics great Russell given Medal of Freedom

    Nov 17, 2010, 5:29 PM EDT

    Russell Block

    Celtics legend Bill Russell, who won 11 championships in 13 seasons and is almost universally regarded as the best defensive player of all time, was named one of the 15 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Other recipients of the award this year include former president George W. Bush, Warren Buffett, Maya Angelou, Stan…

  15. D.J. Augustin’s quasi-validation

    Nov 17, 2010, 4:55 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Darko Milicic

    In my preseason mind, D.J. Augustin was destined to have a pretty crummy year for the Bobcats. He was coming off of a poor-shooting sophomore campaign in which his confidence was shredded by Larry Brown, and it was hard to imagine D.J. leading the ‘Cats to a successful season. Even if Charlotte somehow made the…

  16. New Jersey teen pleads guilty to calling in NBA Offices bomb threats

    A 19-year-old former security guard has pled guilty to calling in bomb threat to the NBA offices in New Jersey, according to the Bergen Record. Jose L. Quesada Jr. admitted to U.S. District Judge Jose L. Linares that he made the threatening calls with his cellphone over a period of days beginning July 26. At…

  17. Rockets not bad, but adrift in NBA’s middle ground without a star to guide them

    Nov 17, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

    rockets_huddle

    There are two parts to constructing a winning team. First, get yourself a superstar or two. Next, get complementary and affordable role players to go around them that fit the system. The Houston Rockets have the second part of this down, it’s the first part that has Daryl Morey stuck. But he’s trying, according to…

  18. Geoff Petrie has the Kings all wrong

    Nov 17, 2010, 2:37 PM EDT

    Geoff Petrie

    The last thing that any sports fan wants to read or hear is that their team’s leadership — owners, coaches, GMs, etc. — doesn’t seem to know something that they obviously should. With that in mind, I’d encourage all Kings fans who planned on feeling good about their team’s direction today to move along and…

  19. Andrew Bynum finds it’s illegal to be going double the speed limit

    Nov 17, 2010, 2:37 PM EDT

    Image (1) bynum-thumb-250x176-5609.jpg for post 96

    Last night, Andrew Bynum was on the court before the Lakers took on the Milwaukee Bucks, practicing some moves while wearing a heavy knee brace. No defense, not a lot of speed, just some court work, but that’s a step forward toward his return in a few weeks. On Oct. 29, Andrew Bynum was behind…

  20. Like a Bosh, the video

    Nov 17, 2010, 1:57 PM EDT

    The guys at The Basketball Jones are just bloody brilliant. Because nobody could sum up Chris Bosh’s career in rap better than some white guys from Toronto… okay that sounds weird, but it really does work.
