    Joe and Gavin Maloof will be at a sold-out Power Balance Arena is Sacramento Monday as the fans make their pitch to keep the team in town. Don’t expect the Maloofs to speak — David Stern told them not to. A Nuggets blogger throws a “come watch the game at a sports bar” night —…

  2. Appears Chicago is Rasual Butler’s kind of town

    Feb 28, 2011, 9:51 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We told you last night Rasual Butler got bought out by the Clippers, now it appears he will be playing out on the wing for the Chicago Bulls. ESPN’s Ric Bucher is reporting Butler is expected to sign with Chicago as soon as he clears waivers. CSN Chicago says there is strong mutual interest. The…

  3. Troy Murphy agrees to buyout with Warriors; looks Boston bound

    Feb 28, 2011, 9:24 AM EDT

    Troy_Murphy

    Everyone expected Troy Murphy to be bought out. Sure, rumors floated around about the Warriors keeping him, but that was more negotiating tactic than reality. The Warriors and Murphy reached a buyout deal Sunday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England (Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News broke the story). Once he…

  4. Video: Channing Frye game winner

    Feb 28, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Channing Frye

    This is a classic buzzer beater. Down 1 in the overtime with one last chance, pretty much everyone was expecting Steve Nash or the red-hot Grant Hill to get the look. But Channing Frye was feeling it in the overtime, so even though his shot is contested pretty well by Brandon Rush, he goes up…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Suns are making a run. So to speak.

    Feb 28, 2011, 6:30 AM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Grant Hill

    What you missed while watching Melissa Leo drop an F-bomb on national television…. The Lakers continuing their mastery of the Thunder and the Knicks upset of the Heat were our games of the day. Suns 110, Pacers 108 (OT): One of the more entertaining games of the day was the first one. Grant Hill was…

  6. Knicks get the better of Heat as LeBron misses down the stretch

    Feb 28, 2011, 4:44 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Talk about a turnaround. From losing to the Cavaliers to beating the Heat, welcome to the Carmelo Anthony era. The Knicks did what you’d expect them to do for 3/4 of this game. They didn’t play defense, they took a lot of jumpshots, and they looked a step behind the Heat. Then all of a…

  7. Clippers buyout Rasual Butler, veteran buyout wave starts

    Feb 27, 2011, 10:15 PM EDT

    rasual butler

    Rasual Butler is the first, but you are going to see a rush of these stories in the next few days, followed up with speculation about where they will land. Now is when teams try to negotiate buyouts of contracts for veterans that the team is not going to play. The player takes a little…

  8. It’s not always about Kobe, Lakers defense keys win over Thunder

    Feb 27, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Thabo Sefolosha

    The end of the Lakers win over Oklahoma City was the latest Rorschach test for whether or not you think Kobe Bryant is a clutch player. Kobe scored seven of the Lakers final 10 points (all the others were Pau Gasol free throws) and he pushed the Lakers to a 90-87 win on the road.…

  9. The blog post about comparing the NBA and the Oscars

    Feb 27, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    Oscar statues at the Kodak Theatre, whic

    You may have heard there’s an award show tonight. The Oscars are always a fun glance into the politics and business of the film industry. And they’re also a fascinating parallel to the MVP race in the NBA. Much like the golden statues, there are no guidelines drawn for the MVP voters. There’s no set…

  10. Dwight Howard has a technical problem

    Feb 27, 2011, 1:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 5

    Friday night, Dwight Howard picked up technical foul number 15 on the season, helping extend his league lead. Once he gets his “frequent techicals rewards card” stamped one more time gets an automatic one-game suspension. It’s really a matter of when — he has averaged a technical every four games this season and the Magic…

  11. LeBron James and Daniel Gibson have stupidest feud ever

    Feb 27, 2011, 12:41 PM EDT

    LeBron James (R) of Cleveland Cavaliers

    Let’s do a little exercise. I want you to make a list of every single thing in the world that you would consider worth fighting with a friend over. From the last coffee cup in the office kitchen, to politics, to wrapping paper, to the Oscars, to sharks. Once you’re done, continue. Now, where is…

  12. Blake Griffin introduces himself to Celtics, unsuspecting rim

    Feb 27, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    The advantage of throwing alley-oop passes to Blake Griffin is you don’t have to do it particularly well. Randy Foye took advantage of that Saturday in the Clippers loss to the Celtics. Griffin runs the floor harder than any big in the game and he is out on the break calling for the lob, and…

  13. Joel Przybilla unlikely to be bought out after conversation with ‘Cats

    Feb 26, 2011, 11:59 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Houston Rockets, Game 6

    Joel Przybilla was dished to Charlotte for Gerald Wallace in what was thought to be a cash dump. Seeing as how the Bobcats are going nowhere and just looking to finish out the year, get their draft picks and start over, Przybilla was high on the list of prospective buyout candidates. He’s a capable big…

  14. Kendrick Perkins out 2-3 weeks with MCL sprain

    Feb 26, 2011, 8:42 PM EDT

    perkinsthunder

    Kendrick Perkins is going to join the Thunder and make the team a significantly tougher opponent defensively… eventually. Until then, well, not so much. OKBlitz.com reports today that Perkins will miss 2-3 weeks with a MCL sprain in his knee. Which is exactly what you want to hear about the guy you just traded two…

  15. Pistons fined, but did Rip Hamilton make his own bed?

    Detroit Pistons  v Toronto Raptors

    Rip Hamilton and Chris Wilcox have been fined by the Pistons for missing shootaround in a “sleep-in” protest yesterday, according to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com. No word on possible penalties for the other three Pistons who missed shootaround, nor those who were late. (Update: Austin Daye and Rodney Stuckey were both fined for being late.…

  16. Why the Bobcats won the trade deadline in their own special way

    Feb 26, 2011, 1:41 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    “Blow it up!” Smart fans in Charlotte have been begging for that for years. They saw what many did. A roster ballooned full with veterans too old to develop, of marginal talent and ability, meshed together with some poor draft picks in an untenable salary situation that kept trying to reinvent itself by giving away…

  17. Game 2 of the Melo era in New York did not go as planned

    Feb 26, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Whoops. Days after the Knicks downed the Bucks in Madison Square Garden to kick off the Carmelo Anthony era in, well, decent style if not glamor, things have taken a turn for the worse.  The Knicks were beaten by the Cavaliers Friday night before they meet the Heat on Sunday. Yes, the Cavaliers. Yes, those…

  18. Pistons officially have no respect left for John Kuester

    Feb 26, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    IL: Detroit Pistons v Chicago Bulls

    Yesterday, the Pistons staged a “sleep-in protest” of John Kuester, with five pistons skipping practice.   Kuester responded by benching those players for last night’s game against the Sixers, and wound up playing just six players. In a shocker, the Pistons lost by a healthy margin. But that wasn’t the surprising part. Kuester was ejected…

  19. Dwight Howard tells Kevin Durant “not in my house”

    Feb 26, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Winning at the trade deadline is a very different thing than winning your next game. Everything that the Thunder are hoping to get defensively with Kendrick Perkins the Magic already have in Dwight Howard. As evidence, we bring you Dwight shutting down Durant as he drives to the hole Friday night. We have yet to…

  20. Mike Fratello to coach Ukrainian national team

    Feb 25, 2011, 8:59 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    The Czar (of the telestrator) is headed to the old Soviet bloc. Mike Fratello, the former NBA coach and current TNT color commentator, will coach the Ukrainian national team at the European Championships this summer, according to the Associated Press. Hopefully they like slow it down, grind it out, defensive basketball that Fratello was known…
