  1. Stan Van Gundy, no fan of team buyouts

    Mar 4, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Boston picked up Troy Murphy. Miami picked up Mike Bibby. Chicago picked up Rasual Butler. Three of the four teams considered contenders in the East picked up a veteran for their bench that was bought out at the deadline by another team. Orlando stood pat. Want to guess what Stan Van Gundy told the Orlando…

  2. Video: Dirk Nowitzki Boom. Winning.

    Mar 4, 2011, 1:38 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    How hot — in a can’t stop watching the train wreck kind of way — is Charlie Sheen? And by that I really mean how hot is mocking Charlie Sheen? Apparently hot enough that Dirk Nowitzki and the creative Dallas Mavericks marketing team are on board. They mock Mr. Winning in a new video. And…

  3. If the Kings move to Anaheim, what name do they choose?

    Mar 4, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Sacramento-Kings

    You don’t have to like it — we don’t — but it looks more and more like the Sacramento Kings may be on the move to Anaheim. And with that would come a lot of questions. For example: What do we call them? There is already a Kings in the greater Los Angeles market, been…

  4. Nate Robinson out 4-6 weeks with knee surgery

    Mar 4, 2011, 12:22 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 2:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Well, this part of the trade has not worked out for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Nate Robinson will be out at least a month after getting his knee scoped, according to Royce Young at Daily Thunder (via twitter). This is the first surgery of Robinson’s career. He’s out four to six weeks, which would bring…

  5. Mike D’Antoni has tweaked offense to fit Anthony, Billups

    Mar 4, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups

    Seven seconds or less was the perfect Steve Nash offense. It was Joe Montana in a West Coast formation. Nash is quick up the court, the best decision maker in the game, can shoot almost as well as he can pass. The offense was designed for him. It’s as close as turning a player loose…

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    I am not a fan of the franchise tag for the NBA. Danny Nowell at Magic Basketball does a great job explaining why this is a bad idea. The Timberwolves are going to offer Kevin Love a lot of money. This story says $70 million, but that is this CBA’s number. However, whatever the max…

  7. Video: Dwyane Wade talks about Heat’s “growing pains”

    Mar 4, 2011, 10:35 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    That was an ugly, ugly loss for the Heat last night. Afterward Dwyane Wade was clearly frustrated, but as he has all season he talked about the learning and growing and getting better. He’s right, it’s a process. But with 21 games left in the season, a few of these lessons maybe should have sunk…

  8. David Stern is not as freaked out by all this player movement as you are

    Mar 4, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Every time — I mean every time — NBA Commissioner David Stern says publically now it is about the collective bargaining agreement negotiations. If he orders lasagna in an Italian restaurant it will somehow turn into a sharp blast at the mid-level exception. So when Dave Krieger of the Denver Post spoke to him about…

  9. Video: LeBron James blocks high-arc floater from Nelson

    Mar 4, 2011, 9:20 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    The real story of this game was he Miami Heat’s epic collapse and loss of a 24-point lead to the Orlando Magic. But we wanted to bring you a video reminder of why the Heat defense is pretty good. (Yes, they were not able to stop Orlando when the Magic began to rain threes down…

  10. Is Chris Paul becoming more John Stockton than Isiah Thomas?

    Mar 4, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul insists he’s healthy. He says his knee isn’t bothering him. But if you watched him in December and you watched him in March, you’re going to have a hard time buying it. The question is — will Paul ever be right? I mean right like he was three seasons ago? Maybe it doesn’t…

  11. Bosh even less clutch than LeBron as Magic finish huge comeback over Heat

    Mar 4, 2011, 12:12 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    I don’t know about you, but I’m not getting fooled again. I’m done, I’m through. I will no longer be surprised when the Miami Heat completely collapse against a good team, no matter how large the lead. It’s over. It cannot possibly be worse than allowing the Orlando Magic to stage a 24-point comeback including…

  12. Sacramento mayor on Kings: “more likely they’re going to be in Anaheim”

    Mar 3, 2011, 9:39 PM EDT

    honda-center-of-anaheim

    The timing is questionable. The move may leave them the third wheel in the Southern California market. They are moving to a better building than the one they are in, but it is 18 years old. But it looks more and more like the Kings will be moving to Anaheim. We told you already that…

  13. Leon Powe inks deal with Memphis Grizzlies

    Mar 3, 2011, 7:33 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    The already quality front line of the Memphis Grizzlies just got deeper. Leon Powe has signed with the Grizzlies, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com. Powe played some quality minutes along the front line of the Boston Celtics during their 2008 title run, giving them 11 points and 5 minutes a game during the playoffs.…

  14. Carmelo Anthony’s Dear John letter to Denver fans

    Mar 3, 2011, 5:52 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony has gone from Denver. Because he forced his way out. But, you know, he still loves you Denver fans. He really appreciates you. Sure, he has moved on the next phase of his career. Bright lights and the big city. But he’ll always care about you. That’s why he left you this goodbye…

  15. Mavericks make it official, sign Corey Brewer

    Mar 3, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT

    Corey Brewer

    It was just a formality at this point, Corey Brewer had been in negotiations with the Mavericks for a couple of days. Now it’s official, Brewer is part of the Dallas Mavericks, the team announced. This is a three-year deal expected to be in the $7 million range (starting at about $2 million a year),…

  16. George Lopez gives Ron Artest tricked out Lakers car

    Mar 3, 2011, 4:40 PM EDT

    Artest_Lakers

    Ron Artest and George Lopez are tight because… well, it’s Los Angeles, those kind of things happen. Lopez is on Artest’s new single “Go Loco” and he’s dropped by the show a couple of times. They are both unreasonably popular considering what they contribute to their business. Lopez has seats you and I can’t afford…

  17. Coach calls Durant doubtful for Thunders’ Friday game

    Mar 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant dunks

    Kevin Durant says he can go Friday for the Thunder against the Hawks. Coach Scott Brooks called him doubtful after Durant sat out practice Thursday. Take the coach in this one. Nothing has been decided, according to the Oklahoman, and Durant was walking around practice without a protective boot. But as he is the franchise…

  18. Boston’s Glen Davis out 3-5 days according to Doc Rivers

    Mar 3, 2011, 3:44 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Boston Celtics

    News could have been much worse, so Celtics fans should take this as a good sign. Doc Rivers said Thursday that Glen “Big Baby” Davis will be out just 3-5 days, according to CSN New England. That would mean missing two games (Golden State and at Milwaukee). If it goes longer than that the Los…

  19. Rashard Lewis debating whether to get knee surgery

    Mar 3, 2011, 2:46 PM EDT

    Rashard Lewis Wizards

    Rashard Lewis is playing a little better in Washington than he was in Orlando. That’s not great, or even really good — he has averaged 11.4 points per game on 9.7 shots per game for the Wizards. It is what he can give right now. But the last handful of games it has been even…

    Because we can’t seem to get enough of all things Blake Griffin…. NBA TV is about to air a new show “24 Hours with Blake Griffin” starting Friday (the premiere is Friday, 6 p.m. Eastern). The show follows Griffin as he is the rock star of All-Star Weekend, doing the Rookie Challenge, the Slam Dunk…
