    During All-Star weekend, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich kept saying he was waiting for the other shoe to drop. His core players — Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Richard Jefferson and DeJuan Blair — had not missed a game all season. Popovich knew he’d been lucky. Up until now. Tony Parker will be out two…

  2. Report: Wizards buy Mike Bibby out; he’ll sign with Heat

    Feb 28, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby Wizards

    UPDATE 3:30 pm: According to Sam Amick, Bibby intends to sign with the Miami Heat once he clears waivers. Amick also notes that Bibby will take about $6 million less to get out of his current deal. Miami seems a good fit for what Bibby brings to the table — floor-spacing three-point shooting. That’s about…

    Detroit Pistons Introduce John Kuester

    How bad are things in Detroit? Follow this link to the video of coach John Kuester getting ejected Friday night. Some players on the bench — ones that skipped practice allegedly protesting the coach — laugh when he gets tossed. The situation is ugly, my friends. And it is not changing. Team president Joe Dumars…

  4. Clippers to celebrate Black History Month. In the wrong month.

    Feb 28, 2011, 2:58 PM EDT

    Clippers Black History Month

    There is a newfound hope in Clippers Nation. Blake Griffin’s skill and motor have changed the culture of that team. Eric Gordon can ball and is a perfect complement. There is a young core, draft picks coming (two first rounders in 2012) and a manageable cap right now. And yet, they are the Clippers. Doing…

  5. NBA Power Rankings: Trade deadline edition

    Feb 28, 2011, 1:33 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    The trade deadline shook the league last week, and the ripple impacts our NBA Power Rankings. But at the top it is all Texas. 1. Spurs (49-10, Last Week #2). No deadline moves for this group, nor should there have been. They are 6 games up on the Mavericks and Celtics for best record in…

  6. Video: LeBron James with the sweet no-look pass

    Feb 28, 2011, 12:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    LeBron James, going to a little too much one-on-one (Dwyane Wade, we’re looking at you, too), did not make the plays down the stretch the Heat needed against the Knicks. But he made some plays. Like deflecting an Amar’e Stoudemire outlet pass, hustling to the ball and making the ridiculous no-look pass to Erick Dampier…

  7. Hornets want to see new CBA before deciding next step with Chris Paul

    Feb 28, 2011, 12:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    Utah watched the Carmelo Anthony circus unfold, they heard their star point guard Deron Williams talk about waiting to see about signing an extension, they realized that an extended lockout next season could mean little chance to move him. So they shocked the world and sent to New Jersey. Chris Paul could be a free…

  8. Wizards, Mike Bibby’s agent to meet, talk buyout

    Feb 28, 2011, 11:15 AM EDT

    Mike Bibby Wizards

    Well, Mike Bibby, just how badly do you want to go to a contender? Or, to be blunt, how many millions are you willing to give up to go to a contender? The Wizards — who acquired Bibby at the trade deadline as part of the Kirk Hinrich deal — don’t really plan to buy…

    Joe and Gavin Maloof will be at a sold-out Power Balance Arena is Sacramento Monday as the fans make their pitch to keep the team in town. Don’t expect the Maloofs to speak — David Stern told them not to. A Nuggets blogger throws a “come watch the game at a sports bar” night —…

  10. Appears Chicago is Rasual Butler’s kind of town

    Feb 28, 2011, 9:51 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We told you last night Rasual Butler got bought out by the Clippers, now it appears he will be playing out on the wing for the Chicago Bulls. ESPN’s Ric Bucher is reporting Butler is expected to sign with Chicago as soon as he clears waivers. CSN Chicago says there is strong mutual interest. The…

  11. Troy Murphy agrees to buyout with Warriors; looks Boston bound

    Feb 28, 2011, 9:24 AM EDT

    Troy_Murphy

    Everyone expected Troy Murphy to be bought out. Sure, rumors floated around about the Warriors keeping him, but that was more negotiating tactic than reality. The Warriors and Murphy reached a buyout deal Sunday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England (Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News broke the story). Once he…

  12. Video: Channing Frye game winner

    Feb 28, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Channing Frye

    This is a classic buzzer beater. Down 1 in the overtime with one last chance, pretty much everyone was expecting Steve Nash or the red-hot Grant Hill to get the look. But Channing Frye was feeling it in the overtime, so even though his shot is contested pretty well by Brandon Rush, he goes up…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Suns are making a run. So to speak.

    Feb 28, 2011, 6:30 AM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Grant Hill

    What you missed while watching Melissa Leo drop an F-bomb on national television…. The Lakers continuing their mastery of the Thunder and the Knicks upset of the Heat were our games of the day. Suns 110, Pacers 108 (OT): One of the more entertaining games of the day was the first one. Grant Hill was…

  14. Knicks get the better of Heat as LeBron misses down the stretch

    Feb 28, 2011, 4:44 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Talk about a turnaround. From losing to the Cavaliers to beating the Heat, welcome to the Carmelo Anthony era. The Knicks did what you’d expect them to do for 3/4 of this game. They didn’t play defense, they took a lot of jumpshots, and they looked a step behind the Heat. Then all of a…

  15. Clippers buyout Rasual Butler, veteran buyout wave starts

    Feb 27, 2011, 10:15 PM EDT

    rasual butler

    Rasual Butler is the first, but you are going to see a rush of these stories in the next few days, followed up with speculation about where they will land. Now is when teams try to negotiate buyouts of contracts for veterans that the team is not going to play. The player takes a little…

  16. It’s not always about Kobe, Lakers defense keys win over Thunder

    Feb 27, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Thabo Sefolosha

    The end of the Lakers win over Oklahoma City was the latest Rorschach test for whether or not you think Kobe Bryant is a clutch player. Kobe scored seven of the Lakers final 10 points (all the others were Pau Gasol free throws) and he pushed the Lakers to a 90-87 win on the road.…

  17. The blog post about comparing the NBA and the Oscars

    Feb 27, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    Oscar statues at the Kodak Theatre, whic

    You may have heard there’s an award show tonight. The Oscars are always a fun glance into the politics and business of the film industry. And they’re also a fascinating parallel to the MVP race in the NBA. Much like the golden statues, there are no guidelines drawn for the MVP voters. There’s no set…

  18. Dwight Howard has a technical problem

    Feb 27, 2011, 1:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 5

    Friday night, Dwight Howard picked up technical foul number 15 on the season, helping extend his league lead. Once he gets his “frequent techicals rewards card” stamped one more time gets an automatic one-game suspension. It’s really a matter of when — he has averaged a technical every four games this season and the Magic…

  19. LeBron James and Daniel Gibson have stupidest feud ever

    Feb 27, 2011, 12:41 PM EDT

    LeBron James (R) of Cleveland Cavaliers

    Let’s do a little exercise. I want you to make a list of every single thing in the world that you would consider worth fighting with a friend over. From the last coffee cup in the office kitchen, to politics, to wrapping paper, to the Oscars, to sharks. Once you’re done, continue. Now, where is…

  20. Blake Griffin introduces himself to Celtics, unsuspecting rim

    Feb 27, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    The advantage of throwing alley-oop passes to Blake Griffin is you don’t have to do it particularly well. Randy Foye took advantage of that Saturday in the Clippers loss to the Celtics. Griffin runs the floor harder than any big in the game and he is out on the break calling for the lob, and…
