  1. LeBron to refs: “I got a Super Bowl party to go to”

    Feb 6, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is a man who likes a good party. And Super Bowl Sunday is really about parties — ones that start long before the game kicks off under a massive video screen. Which is why the Heat had a noon tip-off against the Clippers Sunday, so fans could come to the game and still…

  2. Video: Get out of Al Thornton’s way

    Feb 6, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Al Thornton

    Al Thornton can get up. As proof, we bring you this. We should add that apparently Zaza Pachulia is not intimidating anyone from going to the rim. But this is one of the better dunks of the season. It might even crack Blake Griffin‘s top 10.

  3. Welcome back, Rip Hamilton

    Feb 6, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Milwaukee Bucks

    Last week, Rip Hamilton was deactivated. Most thought he’d never play again in a Pistons uniform. I certainly never thought he’d play again in a Pistons uniform. Most, and I, were wrong. In our defense, however, we weren’t the only ones surprised by Hamilton’s on-court appearance. Hamilton himself was shocked he was going in. From…

  4. Rockets suspend Aaron Brooks for walking off court

    Feb 6, 2011, 1:16 PM EDT

    Aaron Brooks

    Aaron Brooks is getting a time out for acting like a four year old. Midway through the fourth quarter of the Rockets overtime win against Memphis Saturday night, Aaron Brooks was subbed out by Rockets coach Rick Adelman. Brooks walked past the bench and straight to the locker room. Not because of injury but because…

  5. Kendrick Perkins has every intention of testing free agency

    Feb 6, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Kendrick Perkins just got back from a severe knee injury. He’s not even able to put in a full game’s work yet. But he’s busted his tail to come back early, and his impact has helped the Celtics tremendously (not that they needed a lot of help). He worked hard to get himself back in…

  6. Another Blazer big man was injured. We’re out of jokes.

    Feb 6, 2011, 9:06 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Portland Trail Blazers

    There shouldn’t be anyway this is true, but sadly, for Blazer fans, it is.  In the course of sending the Cavaliers to the worst single-season losing streak in NBA history, Samardo Samuels‘ elbow made contact with Blazer center Dante Cunningham‘s face. He started bleeding and was taken back to the locker room for examination. He…

  7. Stop us if you’ve heard this one: New York closing in on Melo

    Feb 6, 2011, 12:52 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Recently we spread the word on a Yahoo! report saying Melo’s people had informed teams that the Knicks were the only team he would sign an extension with. From there, there has been more movement towards an actual trade with New York, signaling a possible shift in Denver’s so-far ice-cold approach to dealing with the…

  8. Cleveland enters record book as Cavs lose 24th consecutive games in a single season

    Feb 5, 2011, 10:45 PM EDT

    cavsfan

    There’s no pity in sports. Not really. In fact, many sane, compassionate people are overcome by a certain blood-thirsty ruthlessness when they play,watch, or are involved in sports. It takes over our mindsets and that competitive nature spreads like a virus and removes the part of us that leads us to show concern for our…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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)…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
