  1. Dwight Howard says Bulls are best in the East right now

    Mar 7, 2011, 11:50 PM EDT

    2011 NBA All-Star Game - Performances And Celebrities

    Dwight Howard said what a lot of people have been thinking (and was willing to go farther than we were) when he was on the Dan Patrick Show this morning (via CSN Chicago, they have the video clip where Howard talks about a range of topics). Patrick asked him who was the best team in…

  2. Kevin Love ties Moses Malone with record 51 straight double-doubles

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:08 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    With a three pointer from straight away in the third quarter Tuesday night, Kevin Love recorded his 51st consecutive double-double (at least 10 points and 10 rebounds). That tied Moses Malone for the all-time record. Well, all-time modern record (post NBA/ABA merger). Turns out Wilt Chamberlain did it 224 times back in the day. But…

  3. Shaq says he’s “85 percent,” could be back next week

    Mar 7, 2011, 8:18 PM EDT

    Shaq_ref

    Danny Ainge has placed a big bet on Shaquille O’Neal. He went from the summer insurance plan to the guy who should be the starting center for the Celtics in the playoffs. If he’s healthy. The Celtics yesterday decided to stop guessing when he might be back, but Shaq himself told ESPNBoston — at his…

  4. Gerald Wallace feels “betrayed” by Bobcats

    Mar 7, 2011, 6:50 PM EDT

    Wallace_Gerald

    Gerald Wallace had spent the last six and a half seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats before he was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers at the trade deadline. Even though the former All-Star and relentless competitor went from a 26-win team to a 35-win team, he wasn’t happy about being traded. Earlier, he vented to…

  5. Ainge says the Kendrick Perkins trade makes Boston better

    Mar 7, 2011, 5:51 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    I’ve heard plenty of Celtics fans tell me why I am wrong, but count me in the group that thinks trading away Kendrick Perkins will come back to haunt Boston. I’m not alone, Dan Shaughnessy ripped Ainge in Sports Illustrated when the trade went down. But Monday he gave Ainge a chance to defend the…

  6. Channing Frye likely out 2-3 weeks with dislocated shoulder

    Mar 7, 2011, 4:44 PM EDT

    Channing Frye

    Well, now who is going to hit the game winning shots for the Phoenix Suns? Channing Frye, who nailed two game winners last week, will be out about two to three weeks with a separated shoulder, the Suns announced Monday after Frye underwent an MRI. Frye is going to meet with an orthopedic surgeon still,…

  7. Erik Spoelstra on “crygate:” It’s the media’s fault. Of course.

    Mar 7, 2011, 4:19 PM EDT

    Spoelstra_cringe

    You would think after having been on this Heat superteam treadmill for about nine months now, Erik Spoelstra would have figured out that the media coverage is pretty intense. And that everything you say is going to be dissected for meaning (that may not be there). And that if you say guys are crying in…

  8. There is so crying in basketball

    Mar 7, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    Miami Heat

    Some Heat players cried in the locker room after the loss Sunday. So what? The reaction from many around the league has been “I’ve been there.” Well, not in the Knicks locker room, they thought it was way funnier than anything Dane Cook ever said. But others took more muted tone. Even Stan Van Gundy,…

  9. Video: Watch for yourself the Heat postgame press conference

    Mar 7, 2011, 2:53 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    A lot has been made about Heat coach Erik Spoelstra saying guys were crying in the locker room, about what the Heat players said after their loss to the Bulls Sunday. You’ve read a lot of the quotes, but we thought you might like to see the words from the men themselves in context. Make…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: The Lakers are on top, the Cavs are out of the cellar

    Mar 7, 2011, 2:37 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

    Changes at the top and bottom of the roster, and we wonder who can coach Kwame Brown? 1. Lakers (45-19, LW #4). It’s not the seven wins in a row that vault them to the top (well, it was in part). It wasn’t just wins over Boston and the Spurs recently. It’s the defense with…

  11. Kevin Love says there was a lot of recruiting going on All-Star weekend

    Mar 7, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Lest you think that star players trying to recruit others stars was just some isolated little fad, we bring you Kevin Love. If he doesn’t sign an extension with the Timberwolves (and they plan on offering him a max deal or at least near it), Love could be a restricted free agent in 2012. (Well,…

  12. Former Stern right hand man not optimistic about CBA negotiations

    Mar 7, 2011, 12:44 PM EDT

    Russ Granik

    You remember Russ Granik as the guy everyone cheered for when he came out to announce the second round of the NBA Draft every year (until he retired). Granik did more than just that and pick up David Stern’s dry cleaning as NBA Deputy Commissioner, however, he was the NBA’s lead negotiator when the last…

  13. Prokhorov backs off Nets to playoff pledge, looks long term — like to David West

    Mar 7, 2011, 12:08 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    The Nets are not going to make the playoffs this year. I know it’s not a shock, we all kind of knew that was happening before the season started. They won 12 games last season, we all recognized how much work there was to do. They’ll probably finish around 25 wins this season, and that’s…

  14. Mark Cuban, Charlie Sheen talking about a new show. What could go wrong?

    Mar 7, 2011, 11:25 AM EDT

    Charlie Sheen (aka Carlos Irwin Estevez) Disposition Hearing

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has his own television channel, HDNet. Which is cool, I want one. But having a television channel without a hit show is like having an iPhone without apps. As you read this, HDNet is showing some old Cheers reruns (the one where Diane’s cat dies) followed by a Third Eye…

  15. PBT Monday Morning One Liners

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:51 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    No Kendrick Perkins and Shaq hasn’t played in a month. That is making some Celtics fans uncomfortable. Dwight Howard on his suspension for getting a 16th technical (which he will serve Monday night): ‘I’ll try not to let the officiating affect the way I play. It’s very tough, but I’ve just got to do it.…

  16. Knicks stars have good laugh at Heat’s tears

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    Back in early July, when the Knicks had missed out on LeBron James and the Heat seemed to be forming a juggernaut, this day seemed a long way off. A day when Knicks stars Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, feeling confident after another big win, were having a laugh at the expense of the Heat…

  17. Will Lakers, Clippers oppose Kings relocation to Anaheim?

    Mar 7, 2011, 9:46 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Does the greater Los Angeles area really need more NBA teams than New Yorks has, and will have even after the Nets move to Brooklyn? More than Chicago? The Sacramento Kings are serious about a move to Anaheim and negotiations are ongoing. But according to Mitch Lawrence at the New York Post (via Eye On…

  18. Video: Zach Randolph drains the game winner to beat Mavs

    Mar 7, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    Just moments before this play, Dirk Nowitzki hit what looked like the game-winning shot. But then Zach Randolph of the Grizzlies bested him. With a very Dirk-like shot — a high-arcing deep two pointer taken with a hand in his face. The shot Dirk has made a career out of. You can add Dallas to…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Andre Iguodala has got it going on. Again.

    Mar 7, 2011, 7:07 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, David Lee

    What you missed while staring at the earth’s two suns…. The Bulls beating the Heat and the Lakers thumping the Spurs were our two games of the day Sunday. In other action: Sixers 125, Warriors 117 (OT): Teams often exit Warriors games with gaudy statistics, so we’ll chalk Evan Turner’s 20 points up to that.…

  20. Chris Paul suffers concussion, leaves court on stretcher, but tests negative

    Mar 7, 2011, 12:19 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    That looked scary. It could have ended up much, much worse. In the third quarter us Sunday night Chris Paul drove the lane against the Cleveland Cavaliers, lost the ball, turned his head to find it as he slammed his head into the arm ad shoulders of Ramon Session. Paul collapsed to the floor and…
