  1. Lakers remind fans why maybe they shouldn’t worry so much

    Feb 23, 2011, 3:15 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Those looked like the Lakers everyone expects to see. The Lakers who showed up at Staples Center Tuesday night were up double-digits in the first quarter on a pretty good Hawks team. Those Lakers cruised to a 104-80 win. Those Lakers looked nothing like the ones that dropped three straight games at the end of…

  2. Rumored trade of Troy Murphy to Warriors soon not to be rumor

    Nets_Murphy

    We told you about this a few days ago — the Nets were looking to move Troy Murphy and if it wasn’t going to be as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal then it likely would be to Golden State. Now it looks like that deal is going to go through, according to Adrian Wojnarowski…

    Feb. 23, 1:11 am: This is official, the two sides have agreed to terms and all that is left is for the league to give the trade it’s stamp of approval in the morning. Friend of the site Sam Amick of FanHouse confirms this. Feb. 22, 11:19 pm: Carl Landry was held out of the…

  4. Report: Carmelo Anthony to suit up for Knicks Wednesday

    Feb 22, 2011, 9:33 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    Pity the Milwaukee Bucks. They get to come into Madison Square Garden on the night Carmelo Anthony first puts on a Knicks jersey and wants to impress his new hometown fans. The trade has become official, ‘Melo in in New York and is expected to play, according to a tweet from Frank Isola of the…

  5. Minor addition to ‘Melo trade: Wolves send Kosta Koufos to Denver

    Koufos_Kosta

    It was a minor part of the Carmelo Anthony trade that was not mentioned yesterday, but we feel it should be put out there so you, dear reader, feel fully informed — center Kosta Koufos is headed to Denver. The Timberwolves are trading Koufos to clear out time for their existing front line players —…

  6. Toronto trades first-round pick for James Johnson

    Feb 22, 2011, 6:56 PM EDT

    James Johnson

    According to Ric Bucher and Nick Fridell of ESPN, the Toronto Raptors have acquired Chicago Bulls forward James Johnson in exchange for the Miami Heat’s 2011 first-round pick, which the Raptors owned. On the surface, this trade looks like a huge win for the Bulls. James Johnson is young and athletic, but he can’t shoot,…

  7. Thunder may be willing to pay a “modest price” for Thabeet

    Thabeet

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo!, the Oklahoma City Thunder are taking a “careful” look at Memphis Grizzlies center Hasheem Thabeet, but are only willing to pay a “modest” price for him. Let’s take a look at why it may make sense for the Thunder to take a flyer on Thabeet: – Thabeet is only…

    NBA games streaming on YouTube? Just a click away from a cat playing the piano? Could happen. Google — which owns YouTube — is in talks with the NBA and other major sports leagues, according to Bloomberg. YouTube aims to show more live sports in the second half of the year, said Gautam Anand, Google’s…

  9. Amid rumors of Devin Harris trade, Nets cancel practice

    Feb 22, 2011, 4:11 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Jersey Nets

    The Nets don’t have a game until Friday so they have a few practices to integrate… well, guess not. But while the ‘Melodrama has moved on there are plenty of trade rumors swirling around the Nets — particularly around point guard Devin Harris. He is going to Atlanta. Or Portland. Or Dallas. Or… It’s a…

  10. Tyreke Evans out at least three weeks after foot procedure

    Feb 22, 2011, 3:50 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    You know that shock-wave thing your uncle had to break up his kidney stones a decade ago? That’s pretty much what Tyreke Evans had done to his left foot today. And that’s going to keep him out at least three more weeks, according to a tweet from Marc Spears at Yahoo. Evans has been battling…

  11. DeMar DeRozan is done with the prop dunk contest

    Feb 22, 2011, 3:23 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    DeMar DeRozan came out and really rocked it last weekend. Not like Lenny Kravitz, we mean in a good way. He came out for the dunk contest Saturday and threw it down old school. Forget the cars and the second backboard and stuffed animals hanging from the rim. He came out and just dunked. He…

  12. The Knickerbocker Empire got its prize in Melo, but the real battle begins now

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    Congratulations, Mr. Dolan! You’ve landed your prize! You have two, count ‘em two, stars to fill the seats in Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony joins Amar’e Stoudemire for the Knicks and the star power is through the roof now in New York. You have successfully acquired a second NBA All-Star, which is difficult to do…

  13. The scent of an All-Star

    We bring you a brief break from the post ‘Melodrama drama…. To talk about scents. You all know about Unbreakable, the new scent by Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. Heck, you’re probably wearing it right now. Admit it. We won’t think any less of you. What if other players were to start their own line?…

  14. Now what for the Nets? Relax, have a vodka shot, stop with quick fix.

    New Jersey Nets Owner Mikhail Prokhorov Meets with Jay Z

    It’s just not that easy. All the swagger of a Russian billionaire playboy and a hip-hop icon and mogul can not instantly transform an NBA franchise. It cannot get free agents to walk through the door, let alone knock it down. The Nets Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z made a good pitch to LeBron James, but…

  15. Nuggets plan to keep Felton

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:25 PM EDT

    image

    Carmelo Anthony’s move to the Big Apple may be taking up all the headline real estate, but Raymond Felton’s departure is also quite notable. He was neither a star nor a New York establishment, but like former-Knicks, now-Nuggets Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, Felton is a quality player and a legitimate starter. However, the Anthony…

  16. With Anthony and Billups, does the Knicks offense really get better?

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:22 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    On a very basic level, the question seems almost absurd. Does the Carmelo Anthony trade make the Knicks offense better? The gut first reaction is “Of course it does. ‘Melo is a scorer going to a system where they just ask guys to get out and score. Match made in heaven.” Then you look at…

  17. PBT Tuesday morning one liners (non-‘Melo trade rumors edition)

    Feb 22, 2011, 12:39 PM EDT

    Devin Harris, Zach Randolph, Tony Allen

    The Atlanta Hawks have interest in Devin Harris. They should. They should have interest in any point guard that doesn’t suck. Dallas and Portland also have interest interest in Harris. Cleveland is thinking trades and thinking long-term picture. Terrance Williams wants out of Houston. The Bulls worked out four D-League guys who could step in…

  18. Danilo Gallinari to the…. Clippers?

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:47 AM EDT

    Image (1) Gallinari_celebrates-thumb-250x166-20310.jpg for post 6298

    Danilo Gallinari is a Denver Nugget. Right now. Right now, anyway. He came to the Rocky Mountains from the Knicks in the deal that sent Carmelo Anthony to where the bright lights will inspire him. But no source we spoke with expects the Nuggets to hang on to Gallinari. Maybe they should — he is…

  19. Carmelo Anthony has his legacy in his hands in New York

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Carmelo Anthony gets mentioned as one of the game’s elite scorers. As he should. Few players can average 25 points a season consistently. Few players in the league can fill it up — from anywhere on the court, creating their own shot — like Anthony. He doesn’t do it terribly efficiently (his shooting percentage is…

  20. Can the Knicks play any defense now?

    Feb 22, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    The New York Knicks were not a good defensive team on Monday morning — they were 20th in the league giving up 106.3 points per 100 possessions (via Hoopdata). Because they like to run that means giving up an average of 106 points per game, second worst in the league. They were 21st in the…
