  1. Derrick Rose, Messi, Katy Perry selling you some shoes

    Mar 17, 2011, 5:51 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose 3

    Adidas has a new ad campaing, “all in.” We bring it to you to see Derrick Rose (and Katy Perry, and Beckham, and Messi, and Notre Dame football, and…). Interesting to see that Adidas realized where Rose is headed in terms of stardom. Plus, we just think it’s got a good look. The commercial. The…

  2. Blake Griffin is not gonna take it. No, he ain’t gonna take it. Anymore.

    Mar 17, 2011, 5:18 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Blake Griffin, you want to know how you’ve really made it? When opposing bloggers — like Liberty Ballers Wednesday night — write things like this about you: Griffin flopped and bitched the entire night en route to a disappointing 14 points, 8 rebounds and 6 fouls. Both Elton Brand and the Sixers’ team defense/gameplan deserve…

  3. Dwight Howard went off again, must be on an MVP ballots

    Mar 17, 2011, 4:12 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    I don’t labor under the illusion that Dwight Howard is going to win the MVP. Derrick Rose seems to be pulling ahead in that race and if the Bulls keep winning (especially if they get the top spot in the East) he will be a deserving recipient. But Dwight Howard needs to be on the…

  4. Bosh says real men cry, Kobe should have been kicked out of the gym

    Mar 17, 2011, 3:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    I’m not sure why the alleged crying in the Heat locker room is still an issue, but it is for some. To me it showed they cared, I’d be more concerned as a Heat fan if they were joking and blasting Drake in the locker room after a last-second loss. (Actually, I’d be concerned if…

  5. GQ calls Lakers fans worst in the NBA

    Mar 17, 2011, 2:17 PM EDT

    In case you missed it while checking out the Armani ads, GQ (via The Basketball Jones) went looking for the worst fans in sports — congratulations Philadelphia! — and wouldn’t you know it only one NBA team was able to make this storied list: The Los Angeles Lakers. Congratulations, Angelenos! You are the fairest of America’s…

  6. ‘Melo says Knicks defensive schemes holding team back. Riiiight.

    Mar 17, 2011, 1:40 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Nobody is question that the Knicks defense has struggled since the trade. Not even the Knicks. But Carmelo Anthony has figured out the problem — it’s the coach’s fault. Well, that’s not exactly what he told the New York Post (via Slam), he blamed the…

  7. Avery Johnson says only thing he can: Nets will keep Deron Williams

    Mar 17, 2011, 12:51 PM EDT

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    Avery Johnson and the Nets organization have made their bet — they must convince Deron Williams to sign an extension with the team. Williams can opt out in the summer of 2012. The Nets traded significant assets to Utah to bring D-Will in, they have to keep him. They have to get talent around him,…

  8. Could Keith Smart’s relationship with Curry cost him his job?

    Mar 17, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    SCurry_surrounded

    Keith Smart may not be long for the Golden State Warriors. Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay Area minces no words about that or why. When Warriors owner Joe Lacob says publicly at the end of the season he’s not bringing back Keith Smart as coach — which seems very much a foregone conclusion at this…

  9. Lakers make their NCAA Tournament predictions

    Mar 17, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Phil Jackson jokes in this video about how the Lakers scouts always end up at the bottom of the team NCAA Tournament pool. Somewhere today on a Lakers message board will be a thread about how that shows they should fire the entire scouting staff, who clearly have no idea what they are doing. (You…

  10. PBT St. Patrick’s Day/Thursday morning one liners

    Mar 17, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    rick adelman

    Rick Adelman is likely leaving the Rockets at the end of the season, and everybody is good with that. Elton Brand tries to be understanding, but he didn’t really like Jalen Rose’s comments about Duke much either. Great name for these Knicks: They are in the Melozoic era. Also fantastic breakdown of the mixed results…

  11. Garnett: Rajon Rondo is playing hurt

    Mar 17, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo was 0-2 shooting with no points Wednesday night, the latest bad line in a slump that has been going on for a couple of weeks. Rondo looks slow and banged up. Kevin Garnett stood up for Rondo, saying he is doing all he can right now, as reported by WEEI: “Rondo’s playing hurt,”…

  12. NCAA to NBA: Prospects to watch Thursday

    Mar 17, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Texas Christian University v Brigham Young University

    At 12: 15 Eastern, Clemson and West Virginia tip off the NCAA Tournament (I’m not counting those first four play in games, that’s just the NCAA trying to make a little extra cash on the backs of athletes they don’t pay). By 12:45, my bracket should be dead. So we’ll be watching the games checking…

  13. Mehmet Okur officially done for season

    Mar 17, 2011, 9:29 AM EDT

    Image (1) Okur_injured-thumb-250x166-18880.jpg for post 3835

    Mehmet Okur hasn’t really been part of the Jazz this season, having played just 13 games for them and having missed the last 22 due to a back injury. The team has now officially shut him down for the rest of the season. “His efforts and determination to return from his combined left Achilles’ surgery…

  14. Video: Dwyane Wade with a monster throw down… then the Cabbage Patch?

    Mar 17, 2011, 8:47 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    Oklahoma City got Kendrick Perkins to defend the rim — and he did a good job of it most of Wednesday night — but Dwyane Wade put a hurt on him with this one. (Which is not a slam on Perkins — Wilt Chamberlain standing on Bill Russell’s shoulders may not have blocked this dunk.)…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Orlando tries to throw it away but still wins

    Mar 17, 2011, 8:34 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    What you missed while watching Wile. E. Coyote in 127 hours…. The latest beat down of the Heat, this time by the Thunder, was our game of the night. Magic 93, Bucks 89 (OT): The way the Magic played the end of regulation they are lucky to have won (and earned a playoff spout with…

  16. Thunder serious about defense, Miami finds out hard way

    Mar 17, 2011, 3:32 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder

    When Thunder GM Sam Presti traded for Kendrick Perkins and Nazr Mohammed at the trade deadline, this is what he had in mind. It wasn’t just their direct impact — Perkins was in foul trouble and sat key stretches of this contest — but with them in the fold the Thunder are more committed on…

  17. How does “Anaheim Royals” sound? Maloofs file name papers.

    Mar 16, 2011, 11:18 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins Royals

    Every day it seems the Sacramento move to Anaheim is looking more and more likely. Sadly. The attorney for the Maloof brothers – the owners of the Kings — filed trademark papers for a number of potential names, according to the Sacramento Bee. “Anaheim Royals,” “Anaheim Royals of Southern California” and “Orange County Royals” all…

  18. Winderman: Heat charging fans to line up on wrong side of velvet rope

    Mar 16, 2011, 9:41 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Miami Heat

    On a day when LeBron James revealed a bracket on his website that has Duke as his choice, after he previously said he thought Ohio State would win the NCAA Tournament, apparently the rules have changed. Based on a Wednesday announcement from the Miami Heat, that has become abundantly clear. Upon announcing that the team…

  19. Milwaukee’s love affair with the jumper killing their offense

    Mar 16, 2011, 8:15 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    Milwaukee’s offense is just awful. Dead last in the league in points scored per possession (98.2 points per 100 possessions according to Hoopdata) but beyond the numbers it just comes off a team floating through the game. Bango seems the only Buck attacking the rim some nights. Which is odd for a team with Brandon…

  20. Tyreke Evans cleared to practice; return 1-2 weeks away

    Mar 16, 2011, 7:12 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    The Kings may get Tyreke Evans back for the final few weeks of the season. He has been cleared by doctors to practice and his return to the team should come in one to two weeks, according to CSN Bay Area. Evans has been battling plantar fasciitis in his left foot all season. Three weeks ago…
