  1. Wizards coach Flip Saunders walks off court during practice, disgusted by effort

    Nov 8, 2010, 2:43 PM EDT

    Flip Saunders

    You could tell when my favorite high school hoops coach was really mad — he wouldn’t say anything. He would yell to motivate, to get points across. But when he was genuinely enraged (and our team could do that to you) he just stared and said nothing and walked away. Sounds like Flip Saunders. Saunders…

  2. Jameer Nelson out, Vince Carter in for Magic tonight

    Interesting game tonight for the Magic and Hawks — two teams with good records that aren’t drawing the love of the Heat and Celtics. Good test for both of them early in the season. But the Magic will again be without starting point guard Jameer Nelson, who is still not over the sprained ankle he…

  3. Carmelo Anthony sounds happy in Denver. Right now.

    The Nuggets are playing well — they are right in the mix on the second tier in the west with the Hornets and Spurs. They are 4-2, that with Chauncey Billups struggling with his shot and basically the entire front line injured. So how does that affect Carmelo Anthony’s desire to leave? Hard to say,…

  4. NBA Power Rankings, where the Hornets are all the buzz

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:07 PM EDT

    CPaul-layup

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where we are starting to believe in the Hornets but not the Hawks. Oh, and just bench Baron Davis. 1. Lakers (7-0). Best offense in the NBA so far, defense is solid (10th in league in defensive points given up per possession) and all that without Andrew Bynum. The schedule…

  5. Peja Stojakovic has had courtside seats for the Hornets hot start

    Peja Stojakovic has played 21 minutes total this season, garbage time at the end of two of the Hornets six wins. Mostly, he has just been the guy with really good courtside seats to a good team. This is the same guy brought in five years ago to help space the floor for Chris Paul…

  6. Allen Iverson has landed in Turkey, photos are classic

    Nov 8, 2010, 11:11 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    We promise we will not be bringing you wall-to-wall coverage of Allen Iverson in Turkey. Even though when the European Turkish fans watch him jack up contested 15 footers ignoring the open guy beyond the arc, we want to see their faces. However, we do bring you this: The American basketball icon has landed in…

  7. Chris Bosh: “I get a little lost out there.”

    Nov 8, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    Bosh_Murphy

    It’s a process. An adjustment. There are moments that make you forget that Miami has really only been playing together for a few weeks, that they are still growing and learning. But they are 4-2 because they are still learning, because there are nights where it does not all click. And the guy it is…

  8. Carmelo Anthony comes to Chicago tonight, but still in Nuggets uniform

    Nov 8, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_thumbsup-thumb-250xauto-21270.jpg for post 4385

    Carmelo Anthony will suit up in Chicago tonight. Still in a Nuggets uniform, though. Luol Deng and Joakim Noah will still put on Bulls uniforms for the game. Denver will come to Chicago in a battle of two teams that have talked about a blockbuster deal but never got it done. Which frustrates a number…

  9. Lakers prove they can showboat, too

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

    Yesterday it was LeBron James and Dwyane Wade showing off for the Heat with a spectacular ally-oop dunk. The Lakers looked around and said, “We can do that” and sent out their two best athletes to prove it — Steve Blake and Pau Gasol. Okay, maybe not their two best, but they still put on…

  10. Celtics Jermaine O’Neal had minor “procedure” on his knee during season

    Nov 8, 2010, 8:18 AM EDT

    JOneal_rebound

    Jermaine O’Neal played 21 minutes for the Celtics in their win over the Thunder. He pulled down nine boards but shot just 1-for-5. He has not moved well this season and admitted to Sherrod Blakely of Comcast Sports New England that he had a “minor procedure” done on his sore left knee. During the season.…

  11. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Lazy Sunday

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    What you missed while you were burning Wayne Rooney in effigy…. Lakers 121 Blazers 96: I was going to give you a great big recap of this game. I was going to do slide shows and video and show the intricacies of this matchup. I was going to give you something really enjoyable to read.…

  12. Aaron Brooks says he is out four to six weeks

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:15 AM EDT

    ABrooks_layup

    Aaron Brooks sprained his ankle Saturday night against the San Antonio Spurs and had to sit out Sunday when the Rockets picked up their first win of the season against the Timberwolves. He’s going to be out a while longer. Brooks himself told Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle (via twitter) he will be out…

  13. Erick Dampier not nearly as much of a Rocket as we may have previously thought

    Nov 7, 2010, 8:10 PM EDT

    dampier

    There was talk, and then there was more talk, and it looked very much like Erick Dampier was going to be a Rocket. Even Jermaine Taylor was getting shoved out the door in a way that suggested he had his spot reserved for someone else. Certainly looks like the Rockets need some more size with…

  14. The tasty underside of the Rockets’ defense so far

    Nov 7, 2010, 7:09 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Houston Rockets

    The Houston Rockets are 0-5, which is just bizarre. They’ve fought hard against good teams and been in positions to win, only to find new and inventive ways to lose. This is a team that many consider one of the most fun teams to watch, and a legitimate playoff contender. So what in Olajuwon’s name…

  15. Rumors continue but Warriors not likely to move Monta Ellis

    Nov 7, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Golden State Warriors

    Remember how Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry were not going to be able to play well together and Ellis had to be traded? Another urban myth, right up there with Mr. Rogers was a Navy Seal. Ellis is having a career year — 28.6 points per game, at a shooting percentage 60 points higher than…

  16. Deron Williams decides to go ahead and kill the Clips on his schedule

    Nov 7, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/_rXD2AGob0c?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    The Clippers battled last night. They really did. Without Baron Davis (fatness), without Blake Griffin (fouled out), without Eric Gordon (injury), they still managed to tie the Jazz with 7 seconds to go in double overtime. Then, of course, Deron Williams decided he’d played enough minutes and would like to go home. Williams took the…

  17. Stan Van Gundy has a hard position on a wet spot

    Nov 7, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    I imagine having Stan Van Gundy yell a you must be one of the most uncomfortable situations you can find yourself in. The high-pitched, hoarse wail, the effusive finger-pointing, the incredulous glare, all of it must be pretty unpleasant to deal with after a long night. To that end, let’s hope the operations crew at…

  18. Weird but true: Murder suspect arrested in VIP section during Bobcats-Magic game

    Nov 7, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    twc

    There are a bunch of ways to take this one. Scary, funny, bizarre, and the story is all three. So we’re going to try and tread those three lines, carefully. Let’s say you’re a murder suspect. In fact, you’re on video in a confrontation with a man who was shot twice in the back in…

  19. LeBron James: Still not making friends

    Nov 7, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James is already a polarizing figure. He was becoming one prior to “The Decision,” and then his little TV special pushed things to a different stratosphere. But it’s not just those big events, or his Game 5 meltdown, or not shaking hands with the Magic after the Cavs’ 2009 elimination, or Kobe Bryant fans’…

  20. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade alley-oop for fun and games

    Nov 7, 2010, 12:10 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/vEPUpl36J6Q?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Going to see a lot of this for the next, oh, five or six years. When you have multiple all-world athletes on your team, things like this are going to happen. Behold! The totally unnecessary but awesome looking alley-oop! Yeah, that’s pretty ridiculous. It’s also fairly indicative of the Heat and their attitude. Magic’s Showtime…
