  1. Mavericks coach Carlisle says “patience has worn thin” with Lamar Odom

    Mar 2, 2012, 6:58 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Vince Carter

    Lamar Odom was given away for virtually nothing by the Lakers to the defending champion Mavericks before the season even began, after Odom expressed a desire to be dealt once his name surfaced in legitimate trade rumors. With Odom being the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, this seemed like an absolute steal for Dallas…

  2. The Knicks are winning, but now they can’t sleep

    Mar 2, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v New York Knicks

    From Newsday’s Al Iannazzone: GREENBURGH, N.Y. — The Knicks don’t just play in the city that never sleeps, they have become the team that has trouble sleeping. All the excitement that Jeremy Lin has generated around New York and inside Madison Square Garden has given some Knicks players a rush of adrenaline that has stayed with them long after…

  3. Stein: Lakers may be interested in Kirk Hinrich. Laker fans, you may now be depressed.

    Mar 2, 2012, 5:40 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein: Keep an eye on Atlanta Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich. If the Lakers can’t make a splashy move for the elite point guard they crave — a long shot at best at this point — and can’t swing a deal for top fallback choice Ramon Sessions, taking Hinrich and his $8.1 million salary…

  4. Video: Why you don’t want to fall asleep on the Clippers plane

    Mar 2, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    The Clippers may well be the most entertaining team in the league to watch on the court. They have a lot of fun off it as well, and this video lets you in on some of it. Well, it’s not fun for you if you fall asleep on their team plane. But it’s fun for…

  5. Owner says Smart will return as Kings coach next season

    Mar 2, 2012, 3:28 PM EDT

    Keith Smart, DeMarcus Cousins

    Keith Smart has seemed to make a connection with the Kings players. That has not translated to winning yet — since he took over and the team has gone 10-18. But you are seeing better energy and play out of DeMarcus Cousins, you are seeing better defense, you’re seeing a respectable team starting to form.…

  6. Hawks’ Joe Johnson to miss at least two more games

    Mar 2, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Apparently Joe Johnson was not ready to come back yet. The Hawks’ leading scorer been battling knee tendonitis that kept him out of two games before the All-Star Game as well as that game itself (the coaches voted him in as a replacement). He came back for the Hawks first game after the break and…

  7. Russell Westbrook day-to-day, may miss Saturday’s game

    Mar 2, 2012, 2:07 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Jameer Nelson

    In case you missed it, Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook rolled his ankle near the end of the Thunder’s dramatic come-from-behind win over the Magic on Thursday night. (And if you did miss it, why? That was a fantastic game, best game of the night.) After the game, reporters said Westbrook was noticeably limping, not…

  8. Suns owner’s comments suggest no Steve Nash trade coming

    Mar 2, 2012, 1:56 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    I know it feels like beating a dead horse, but every day there seems to be more and more people talking about a Steve Nash trade — to the Knicks, to the Lakers (you really think the Suns would do that?), to just about anywhere. And we keep telling you every sign out of Phoenix…

  9. Report: Allen Iverson is not broke because a friend was smart

    Mar 2, 2012, 1:11 PM EDT

    90040781SD036_Memphis_Grizz

    Someone in Allen Iverson’s inner circle was a true friend to the man. We reported recently on a judge ordering Iverson to pay more than $850,000 to a jewelry store for goods received, and the judge needing to go into his bank account and get what they could. If that happened to you or me,…

  10. Magic front office still feels time is on their side

    Mar 2, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Right now, the Orlando Magic are heeding the advice of the Rolling Stones. They think time is on their side (yes it is). With the NBA trade deadline now less than two weeks away, the Dwight Howard saga remains in the same groove it has been for months — the Magic are trying to convince…

  11. Jermaine O’Neal to be out two more weeks for Celtics

    Mar 2, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    As if there are not enough issues swirling around the Celtics right now…. Jermaine O’Neal — the best true center left on the Celtics roster — will be out at least two more weeks due to an injured left wrist that has bothered him since last season, the Boston Herald reports. After meeting with a…

  12. What was more impressive: Chamberlain’s 100 point game or Kobe’s 81?

    Mar 2, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    wilt-chamberlain-100-point-game-thumb-400xauto-31440

    Here is the statistic that most amazes me about Wilt Chamberlain’s 1962 season — he AVERAGED 50.4 points and 25.7 rebounds a game. Averaged. No player in the history of the league has been as physically superior to everyone around him as early Wilt. Notice I did not say his legendary 100-point game, which happened…

  13. Friday And-1 links: Ramon Sessions trade talk and more

    Mar 2, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Anthony Parker, Ramon Sessions

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Ramon Session trade rumors are still a hot topic. It may be close to the deadline when it happens but expect him to be moved.…

  14. Wilson Chandler will be with the Nuggets or no one

    Mar 2, 2012, 10:28 AM EDT

    Wilson+Chandler+Atlanta+Hawks+v+Denver+Nuggets+Ym_wkv-B6Cgl

    Quietly yesterday, the deadline passed for Wilson Chandler to play anywhere in the NBA except Denver. Chandler signed to play in China during the lockout, but he left before his team’s first round playoff series (against Stephon Marbury’s team) to try and negotiate a multi-year deal with an NBA deal. His Chinese team got swept…

  15. Making the advanced statistics movement relevant to players

    Mar 2, 2012, 9:21 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Ronnie Brewer, Taj Gibson

    There is a fantastic, must read post over TrueHoop by Henry Abbott, timed to coincide with the start of the SLOAN Conference — THE sports statistics conference — going on at MIT in Boston this weekend. Abbott’s point is a good one: It’s one thing for a front office to have a bunch of advanced…

  16. Video: Dwyane Wade’s no look ally-oop to LeBron James

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Miami Heats LeBron James shares a laugh with teammate Dwyane Wade during the fourth quarter of the Heats NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were putting on a clinic in Portland on Thursday night. They combined for 71 points on just 55 shots, they were forces of nature on defense and the Trail Blazers really stood no chance. And in the open court, there is nothing like these two guys. That is one heck…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another day, another Thunder comeback

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:22 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Ryan Anderson

    What you missed while taking Google to court because their “street view” map option caught you urinating in your front yard…. Miami 107, Trail Blazers 93: This score doesn’t do justice to how much the Heat dominated this game, which we broke down as our game of the night. Thunder 105, Magic 102: Who says…

  18. Relentless Miami Heat wear down, blow out Trail Blazers

    Mar 2, 2012, 2:28 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    Portland came out with a real energy Thursday night — they were up for this one. Their All-Star, LaMarcus Aldridge, had a dozen first quarter points and the Blazers seemed to hit everything they put up. The Heat have been a juggernaut and for 12 minutes the Blazers matched it. But the Heat are relentless.…

  19. Video: David Stern talks Lin, lockout, more with Bob Costas

    Mar 1, 2012, 10:40 PM EDT

    David Stern

    David Stern swung by Costas Tonight (on the NBC Sports Network) to do an interview that felt like old times — Bob Costas and Stern talking was a regular thing back in the NBA on NBC days. As you would expect, it’s a good interview. They covered everything from Jeremy Lin to the Hornets sale…

  20. Video: Wojnarowski talks Knicks potential (and trade deadline)

    Mar 1, 2012, 8:26 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    The Knicks scored 71 points  in the second half of Wednesday night’s win and they looked like what Knicks fans — and Mike D’Antoni — hoped to see: a powerful offense that can play a little defense. Yahoo Sports Adrian Wojnarowski was on NBC SportsTalk on Thursday and talked about the potential of these Knicks…
