  1. JaVale McGee does not care what you think of his triple-double

    Mar 18, 2011, 9:35 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Washington Wizards

    JaVale McGee got his first career triple-double against the Bulls Tuesday night — 12 rebounds, 12 blocked shots and 11 points. And he has taken heat for it. He got there because the Wizards — down 18 points on their way to a big loss — left their starting center in and ran 3 minutes…

  2. Video: Toney Douglass goes downtown

    Mar 18, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    The Knicks’ Toney Douglas was channeling Downtown Freddie Brown, or Petula Clark, or somebody, but he was dialed in from downtown Thursday. He had five three pointers in the first half, was 9-of-12 from three total and helped lead the Knicks to a franchise record 20 three pointers on the night. And you thought Douglass…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s raining threes in New York

    Mar 18, 2011, 3:33 AM EDT

    Shawne Williams

    What you missed while watching your bracket go up in flames…. Knicks 120, Grizzlies 99: This was an offensive showcase for the Knicks. They knocked down a franchise record 20 threes, led by Toney Douglas who had five in the first half and finished 9-of-12 from deep for the game. The Knicks scored at a…

  4. Artest has ideas on exciting “Grey Poupon, caviar” Lakers fans

    Mar 17, 2011, 10:52 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Victory Parade

    We told you that the Lakers are the worst fans in the NBA. Well, that’s what GQ said, actually. We’re not so sure. We don’t remember the Lakers needing to do a “Fan Up” campaign like in Miami. Or having the general level of disinterest seen in Atlanta. Or… well, you get the idea. Ron…

  5. Still hope in Sacramento, so fans keep fighting

    Mar 17, 2011, 9:33 PM EDT

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    The Sacramento Kings are close to becoming the Anaheim Royals. It’s about money. It’s always about money. It’s luxury boxes and television markets and ways to pay off debts. It’s not about the fans — the fans in Sacramento that have been loyal to this team and are about to be screwed over. But those…

  6. Scottie Pippen to get statue inside United Center

    Mar 17, 2011, 8:29 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    Michael Jordan has the iconic statue outside the building, Scottie Pippen one inside. Yea, that sounds about right. The Bulls announced that they would honor Pippen with a statue, to be unveiled next month when the Celtics are in town. The statue will be on the 100-level concourse inside the building. “Words really can’t express…

  7. Rashard Lewis wants to avoid surgery, may miss season anyways

    Mar 17, 2011, 6:53 PM EDT

    Rashard Lewis Wizards

    Washington Wizards forward Rashard Lewis has missed the last five games with a sore right knee, and according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, he won’t be back in action any time soon: Rashard Lewis will leave for New York on Thursday to meet with another specialist and receive a third opinion on the…

  8. Derrick Rose, Messi, Katy Perry selling you some shoes

    Mar 17, 2011, 5:51 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose 3

    Adidas has a new ad campaing, “all in.” We bring it to you to see Derrick Rose (and Katy Perry, and Beckham, and Messi, and Notre Dame football, and…). Interesting to see that Adidas realized where Rose is headed in terms of stardom. Plus, we just think it’s got a good look. The commercial. The…

  9. Blake Griffin is not gonna take it. No, he ain’t gonna take it. Anymore.

    Mar 17, 2011, 5:18 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Blake Griffin, you want to know how you’ve really made it? When opposing bloggers — like Liberty Ballers Wednesday night — write things like this about you: Griffin flopped and bitched the entire night en route to a disappointing 14 points, 8 rebounds and 6 fouls. Both Elton Brand and the Sixers’ team defense/gameplan deserve…

  10. Dwight Howard went off again, must be on an MVP ballots

    Mar 17, 2011, 4:12 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    I don’t labor under the illusion that Dwight Howard is going to win the MVP. Derrick Rose seems to be pulling ahead in that race and if the Bulls keep winning (especially if they get the top spot in the East) he will be a deserving recipient. But Dwight Howard needs to be on the…

  11. Bosh says real men cry, Kobe should have been kicked out of the gym

    Mar 17, 2011, 3:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    I’m not sure why the alleged crying in the Heat locker room is still an issue, but it is for some. To me it showed they cared, I’d be more concerned as a Heat fan if they were joking and blasting Drake in the locker room after a last-second loss. (Actually, I’d be concerned if…

  12. GQ calls Lakers fans worst in the NBA

    Mar 17, 2011, 2:17 PM EDT

    snoop_gal_640

    In case you missed it while checking out the Armani ads, GQ (via The Basketball Jones) went looking for the worst fans in sports — congratulations Philadelphia! — and wouldn’t you know it only one NBA team was able to make this storied list: The Los Angeles Lakers. Congratulations, Angelenos! You are the fairest of America’s…

  13. ‘Melo says Knicks defensive schemes holding team back. Riiiight.

    Mar 17, 2011, 1:40 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Nobody is question that the Knicks defense has struggled since the trade. Not even the Knicks. But Carmelo Anthony has figured out the problem — it’s the coach’s fault. Well, that’s not exactly what he told the New York Post (via Slam), he blamed the…

  14. Avery Johnson says only thing he can: Nets will keep Deron Williams

    Mar 17, 2011, 12:51 PM EDT

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    Avery Johnson and the Nets organization have made their bet — they must convince Deron Williams to sign an extension with the team. Williams can opt out in the summer of 2012. The Nets traded significant assets to Utah to bring D-Will in, they have to keep him. They have to get talent around him,…

  15. Could Keith Smart’s relationship with Curry cost him his job?

    Mar 17, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    SCurry_surrounded

    Keith Smart may not be long for the Golden State Warriors. Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay Area minces no words about that or why. When Warriors owner Joe Lacob says publicly at the end of the season he’s not bringing back Keith Smart as coach — which seems very much a foregone conclusion at this…

  16. Lakers make their NCAA Tournament predictions

    Mar 17, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Phil Jackson jokes in this video about how the Lakers scouts always end up at the bottom of the team NCAA Tournament pool. Somewhere today on a Lakers message board will be a thread about how that shows they should fire the entire scouting staff, who clearly have no idea what they are doing. (You…

  17. PBT St. Patrick’s Day/Thursday morning one liners

    Mar 17, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    rick adelman

    Rick Adelman is likely leaving the Rockets at the end of the season, and everybody is good with that. Elton Brand tries to be understanding, but he didn’t really like Jalen Rose’s comments about Duke much either. Great name for these Knicks: They are in the Melozoic era. Also fantastic breakdown of the mixed results…

  18. Garnett: Rajon Rondo is playing hurt

    Mar 17, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo was 0-2 shooting with no points Wednesday night, the latest bad line in a slump that has been going on for a couple of weeks. Rondo looks slow and banged up. Kevin Garnett stood up for Rondo, saying he is doing all he can right now, as reported by WEEI: “Rondo’s playing hurt,”…

  19. NCAA to NBA: Prospects to watch Thursday

    Mar 17, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Texas Christian University v Brigham Young University

    At 12: 15 Eastern, Clemson and West Virginia tip off the NCAA Tournament (I’m not counting those first four play in games, that’s just the NCAA trying to make a little extra cash on the backs of athletes they don’t pay). By 12:45, my bracket should be dead. So we’ll be watching the games checking…

  20. Mehmet Okur officially done for season

    Mar 17, 2011, 9:29 AM EDT

    Image (1) Okur_injured-thumb-250x166-18880.jpg for post 3835

    Mehmet Okur hasn’t really been part of the Jazz this season, having played just 13 games for them and having missed the last 22 due to a back injury. The team has now officially shut him down for the rest of the season. “His efforts and determination to return from his combined left Achilles’ surgery…
