  1. Thirsty? You need some official Lakers Gatorade.

    Feb 10, 2011, 2:19 PM EDT

    ts_lakersgatoradebottles670

    So let’s say you’re in Los Angeles and feeling dehydrated. You need some electrolytes pumped into your system. And we’re going to assume you’re dehydrated from an intense workout and not because you were at Tom Bergin’s until closing. What you need is some Lakers Gatorade. In Los Angeles, while supplies last (which we bet…

  2. Lakers to measure themselves against Celtics: What to look for

    Feb 10, 2011, 1:13 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers are the two-time NBA defending champions. They have the newest shiny rings and the banner has barely had time to gather dust. Every time they step on the court they are the team the opposition wants to measure itself against. Except Thursday night. Then the roles will be reversed — the Lakers will…

  3. Byron Scott rips his team, effort after loss 26 in a row

    Feb 10, 2011, 11:57 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    In the games leading up to the Cavaliers record in futility — 25 consecutive losses in a row — there were a lot of things you could pick apart about the Cavs: The lack of guys who can create their own shot, the lack of rebounding, the poor execution, the non-existent interior defense, and so…

  4. Ricky Rubio is struggling to shoot the rock in Europe

    Feb 10, 2011, 11:49 AM EDT

    Spain v USA

    We know, Ricky Rubio is a highlight factory. A point guard with a seemingly instinctive feel for the game. He’s been playing professionally since he was 14, he has a silver medal from the 2008 Olympics and held his own with the best the USA had to offer in the Gold Medal game. The knock…

  5. Something strange is going on in Utah. What? No idea yet.

    Feb 10, 2011, 10:42 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    Interesting developments out of Utah after the loss to the Bulls last night, which means we have one eye on Salt Lake City today. Jerry Sloan, usually one of the fastest coaches to the post-game media interview, was more than 30 minutes late and appeared “shaken” when he arrived, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.…

  6. LeBron, Lil’ Wayne are cool with each other again. All is right with the world.

    Feb 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

    It was one of our great national tragedies, when rapper Lil’ Wayne bared his soul to Rolling Stone about the pain he felt when LeBron James and Dwyane Wade didn’t give him special love when he sat in the front row of a Heat game. I think we all related. Good news. No. Great news.…

  7. PBT Thursday morning one liners

    Feb 10, 2011, 9:26 AM EDT

    no

    Best Web site ever: didthecavswinlastnight.com One knock on Derrick Rose was that he avoided contact on his drives and did not get to the free throw line enough. Not any more. The NBA vs. monster movies. Blake Griffin vs. King Kong. Brilliant. There were indeed “We want ‘Melo” chants inside Madison Square Garden. Although after…

  8. Report: Bulls, Rockets have discussed Courtney Lee for Omer Asik trade

    Feb 10, 2011, 8:52 AM EDT

    Courtney Lee

    In a time of some rather crazy trade rumors, here’s a little one that makes some sense, out of the Houston Chronicle. There have been talks with Chicago about center Omer Asik, according to a person with knowledge of those conversations. The Bulls have been looking for a shooting guard and have inquired about Courtney…

  9. Bill Walton, ghost of Jerry Garcia will in fan’s half-court shot

    Feb 10, 2011, 8:22 AM EDT

    bill+walton

    Like many teams, the Sacramento Kings run a promotion where a fan gets a chance at a half-court shot to win a bunch of money (or a trip or whatever). Wednesday night a Kings’ fan nailed it. Why? Because Bill Walton was courtside and summoned the spirit of Jerry Garcia on Grateful Dead night at…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Derrick Rose bests Deron Williams in the clutch

    Feb 10, 2011, 8:08 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Utah Jazz

    What you missed while playing a sad, sad song for the end of Guitar Hero… Bulls 91, Jazz 86: At the end of this one Deron Williams and Derrick Rose were putting on a clinic. Two of the best pick and roll ball handlers in the league were slicing defenses with drives, dicing them up…

  11. Danny Ainge confirms Celtics are looking for deadline trade

    Feb 9, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    If Marquis Daniels had not suffered a freakish, scary injury last week, the Boston Celtics very likely would have ridden out the trade deadline and watched every other team try to match what they already have. Right now, Boston is the rabbit every team is trying to catch (even San Antonio, Boston scares teams more…

  12. Winderman: Lakers shouldn’t trade Bynum now because they’ll need to later

    Feb 9, 2011, 8:19 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    Let’s see: You don’t trade Andrew Bynum because it compromises the Lakers’ size advantage. You don’t trade Andrew Bynum because it compromises the Lakers’ already questionable defense. You don’t trade Andrew Bynum for Carmelo Anthony because Jim Buss loves the guy to pieces. Fair enough. All (except the latter) legitimate points. But here’s another one:…

  13. The Atlanta Hawks are a bit of a mess

    Feb 9, 2011, 7:31 PM EDT

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    Even with their best player out of action, the Atlanta Hawks had no business being completely eviscerated by the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night. Philly is a solid team, but Atlanta is supposedly superior. They’re supposedly worthy of their decent seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, even if their efficiency differential puts them just…

  14. Warriors asking about Nene, just because

    Feb 9, 2011, 6:58 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    I suppose it never hurts to ask. Despite their lack of compatible assets, the Golden State Warriors are reportedly inquiring as to the availability of Nene, the highly efficient pivot who could make all of the Dubs’ dreams come true. From Marcus Thompson II of the San Jose Mercury News: According to multiple sources, the…

  15. Matt Bonner will teach you fundamentals, change your life

    Feb 9, 2011, 6:30 PM EDT

    Matt Bonner

    Last week the Spurs dropped a hell of a teaser on their official website. Rather than pimping the kind of softball interviews or rosy recaps that usually populate online team hubs, San Antonio put together an incredible instructional video series, with Matt Bonner starring as a video mentor. The preview in itself was promising, but…

  16. The All-Star HORSE contest is no more

    Feb 9, 2011, 6:08 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant HORSE

    According to the twitter feed of Nate Jones, one reason that Kevin Durant is participating in the three-point shootout at this year’s All-Star Weekend is that the H-O-R-S-E contest will not be happening this year. This news should not come as a surprise to anybody who watched last year’s HORSE contest. Ideally, the H-O-R-S-E contests…

  17. Ron Artest to Bobcats rumor surfaces. Not. Going. To. Happen.

    Feb 9, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Overshadowed in the Andrew Bynum for Carmelo Anthony silliness Tuesday was a report from ESPN’s Ric Bucher that the Lakers also have tried to move Ron Artest. Bucher states the Lakers called the Bobcats looking to swap Ron Artest for either Stephen Jackson or Gerald Wallace, and that the Bobcats turned it down. Artest, when…

  18. If not traded, ‘Melo says he’d consider signing with Denver after all. Right.

    Feb 9, 2011, 4:25 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Since day one of the ‘Melodrama, whenever Carmelo Anthony has been asked if he would sign with Denver he has said it was one of the options he would consider. That’s not what his people — the fine folks from CAA, for example — were saying privately to the Nuggets and everyone else. They said…

  19. Meet Will Bynum. He can dunk.

    Feb 9, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    Image (1) wbynum-thumb-250x140-18208.jpg for post 3667

    Fans in Detroit could use something to cheer. Something to use their voices for other than another Rip Hamilton chant. Will Bynum is happy to oblige. He is explosive and shows it off here when the Spurs fall asleep on defense. That will wake up a sleepy building every time.

  20. Kevin Love got away with one Tuesday night

    Feb 9, 2011, 2:49 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Kevin Love, he of the Wes Unseld-like outlet passes, picked up a sweet length-of-the-court assist last night. Thing of beauty. Check it out. But it was a rules violation. Watch it again. Love never comes out of bounds after grabbing the ball (following a made shot), he just gets one foot out of bounds and…
