  1. J.R. Smith tagged with punishment for an on-court offense. Huh. Something new every day.

    Feb 5, 2011, 7:29 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    So when the Jazz played the Nuggets Friday night, Raja Bell decided to bury himself in the cerebral cortex of one J.R. Smith. Granted, it’s not really like that’s the toughest nut to crack. J.R. can shoot the rock, but he leaks crazy out of his head like a fire hydrant. So once Bell got…

  2. Can you picture Kendrick Perkins with the Miami Heat?

    Feb 5, 2011, 5:57 PM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins

    It’s a little difficult to picture Kendrick Perkins’ scowl next to anything except Kevin Garnett’s scowl. But how about next to LeBron James’ scowl? Perkins was 8th on our list of the 25 top free agents and there is going to be a lot of interest in him — in an NBA where you can’t…

  3. Warriors reserve Charlie Bell arrested for DUI

    Feb 5, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    Charlie Bell

    Charlie Bell really hasn’t been part of the rotation in Golden State — he has played in just two of the last 10 games for a total of 7 minutes — and this is not going to help endear him to the coaches and front office. Bell was arrested early Friday morning (late Thursday night)…

  4. Just a reminder, Steve Nash is the superstar everyone’s clamoring for, except for the defense thing

    Feb 5, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    We’re on a dicey ledge here, so hang on to the wall, won’t you? Steve Nash is the superstar you want on your team. While everyone from LeBron James to Dwight Howard to Carmelo Anthony to Rip Hamilton have either left their teams or threatened to leave their teams, Nash is bypassing any and all…

  5. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom scent commercial. We wish this were a joke.

    I don’t really know what to tell you here. I don’t necessarily want to force you to watch this.  Because once you’ve seen it, it cannot be unseen. It’s really just uncomfortable and will live with you. Perhaps you’re thinking “Well, Matt, I’ll just not say watch it.” Oh, silly person. You know you can’t…

  6. Dr. J sued for defrauding elderly woman

    Feb 5, 2011, 1:06 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    “Dr. J” Julius Erving has had his share of off-court affairs go public, notably an affair with a sportswriter that resulted in a daughter. But his latest scandal is considerably more disheartening to the image fans have of Erving as a statesman for the game. The New York Post reports: Legendary basketball player Julius Erving…

  7. Walsh gets a win, Knicks hire former Nugget GM Warkentien

    Feb 5, 2011, 12:21 PM EDT

    Mark Walkenstein

    In a week where he needed one, Knicks president of basketball operations Donnie Walsh got a win. The Knicks have hired former Nuggets GM Mark Warkentien as their director of pro personnel, the team announced Saturday. Since he was expected to be hired as a consultant so this is a much more entrenched position within…

  8. You’ll never believe it, but Kevin Garnett picked up a technical for absurd behavior

    Feb 5, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Dallas Mavericks

    I like that we get to spend our weekends like this, don’t you? Each weekend you can get up, have your coffee, read the paper that you don’t get because you get the internet so why would you get a paper? And we go over what jackass thing Kevin Garnett did the night before. It’s…

  9. Blake Griffin shows Al Horford he could start for Steelers Sunday, loses game

    Feb 5, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    In a development that’s certain not to spark useless debates between people regarding the words “excessive,” “soft,” and “good hard fouls,” Blake Griffin fouled the ever loving mercy out of Al Horford on a last second game-winning drive attempt. Griffin went straight up, kind of, rose both arms to block the shot, made a play…

  10. Report: Knicks sitting pretty in Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes

    Feb 5, 2011, 7:57 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    It’s good to be the Knicks right now. Sure on the court too, where they are the best they’ve been in a decade. But we were talking in the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, where the Knicks appear to have all the winning numbers. A new report by Marc Spears of Yahoo confirms that. Several sources told…

  11. The Cavaliers can’t lose them all… can they?

    Feb 5, 2011, 3:20 AM EDT

    J.J. Hickson, Marc Gasol, Sam Young

    It’s just become hard to watch. What forward J.J. Hickson said after Friday’s loss to the Grizzlies — number 23 in a row — summed the desperation up well. “They say you can’t win ‘em all, but in the same light, you can’t lose ‘em all either,” Hickson said. “So, if we stay (focused), I…

  12. Otis Smith content with LeBron’s jumper-driven explosion

    Feb 4, 2011, 9:08 PM EDT

    Otis Smith, Orlando Magic

    LeBron James dominated the Miami Heat’s Thursday night game against the Orlando Magic. After hitting his first 11 shots and dropping 23 on Orlando in the first quarter alone, James finished with 51 points (on a mere 25 shots), 14 rebounds, and eight assists and led the Heat to a win that wasn’t quite as…

  13. Detroit deactivates Rip Hamilton

    Feb 4, 2011, 8:07 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    Just when you think there isn’t any love to be lost at all between the Detroit Pistons and Rip Hamilton, news arrives in the latest tear in the once-strong relationship between franchise and player. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Detroit has formally deactivated Hamilton, removing even the slightest possibility that he’ll touch the…

  14. Arenas served with court papers at halftime

    Feb 4, 2011, 8:05 PM EDT

    Arenas magic

    Well, this is certainly strange. Here’s the report, courtesy of the Associated Press’ Kyle Hightower: Orlando guard Gilbert Arenas has been served with child support and custody papers as he was leaving the court during halftime of a Magic game. A process server stopped Arenas as he walked off the court Thursday night against the…

  15. Kevin Love selected to replace Yao Ming in the All-Star Game

    Feb 4, 2011, 7:36 PM EDT

    KLove_jumper

    UPDATE (7:36 PM EST): The league has announced that Kevin Love will indeed serve as Yao Ming’s injury replacement for the All-Star Game. Before we all get too excited: what does it say about the All-Star system that there’s actual jubilation when players are chosen correctly? At this point, it should be regarded as truth…

  16. The Mavericks are still zoning up, and it’s still working

    Feb 4, 2011, 7:30 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks, Tyson Chandler, Derrick Rose

    NBA teams are — by rule — prevented from running true zone defenses. The defensive three second violation was put in place specifically to prevent zones from clogging up the paint and slowing down the game, and as a result, even though most teams utilize some sort of zone coverage in pick-and-roll situations and the…

  17. Steve Novak and Mike Taylor head back to the D-League

    Feb 4, 2011, 6:49 PM EDT

    Steve Novak

    Former D-Leaguers-turned-NBAers Steve Novak and Mike Taylor aren’t quite ready to give up playing pro ball here in the States, and are looking to start again from square one. Scott Schroeder of NBA FanHouse has reported that both Novak and Taylor have signed contracts to return to the D-League in an effort to showcase their…

  18. Wade to start against Bobcats

    Feb 4, 2011, 6:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    According to Ira Winderman of the Flordia Sun-Sentinel, Dwyane Wade will start against the Charlotte Bobcats tonight. Wade suffered a lower back contusion after colliding with Dwight Howard during Thursday’s Heat-Magic game, and his status for the game against the Bobcats had been questionable. The last time the Heat played the Bobcats, Wade scored 31…

  20. The Jimmer Fredette in the NBA debate rages on

    Feb 4, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    BYU v Kansas State

    Want to start a fight in a room full of NBA scouts? All you need are two words: Jimmer Fredette. The BYU scoring machine divides them (like it seems to divide the commenters on this site). There are those that think he can be another Stephen Curry at the NBA level. There are those that…
