  1. Ron Artest auctions off championship ring

    Dec 26, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Last night after the Heat had finished wiping the Lakers off the map (or the Lakers had finished wiping themselves off, depending on who you ask), Ron Artest had himself a little party. And at this party, he finally auctioned off his 2010 NBA Championship ring with all proceeds going to support mental health awareness.…

  2. Could the Magic want Boris Diaw?

    Dec 26, 2010, 2:03 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Milwaukee Bucks

    When the Magic sent Marcin Gortat to Phoenix in their mega-deals last weekend, they found themselves supremely short on big men. They’re forced to trot out lineups with Brandon Bass at center and against huge teams, that’s simply not going to work. They found success against the Celtics Saturday because even with Jermaine O’Neal back,…

  3. NBA Christmas Day: Naughty and Nice

    Dec 26, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    With five games on the slate yesterday, we ran down what happened in Baseline To Baseline and broke down Heat-Lakers.  Here’s who left candy in your stocking and who left coal.   Who’s was nice: Monta Ellis: When Ellis is on, he’s an inferno. And the Blazers yesterday were powerless to stop him. With 39…

  4. Kobe Bryant not a happy camper after Lakers-Heat

    Dec 26, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant‘s won more than his fair share of games during is career. But he’s lost a few, too. It’s just part of the NBA. So it would be easy for him to brush off what happened Saturday as the Heat creamed his Lakers, busting out by 20 point in the fourth quarter and eventually…

  5. Shaq decides he wants a fine for Christmas, rips refs

    Shaq_ref

    Stu Jackson — the NBA VP who decides who gets fined and when — doesn’t work on Christmas. So it may be a couple days until he gets around to fining Shaquille O’Neal. But he will. Shaq fouled out in just 12 minutes of play Saturday, then afterwards said this, as reported by FanHouse. “We…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Knicks and Magic try to make statements

    Dec 26, 2010, 4:31 AM EDT

    Jameer Nelson, J.J. Redick, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while eating too much roast beast… We talked about the lessons from the Lakers/Heat already, so we’ll move on. Knicks 103, Bull 95: This one was close — tied with 10 minutes left — until Chicago missed their next 12 in a row, and ended  up shooting 26 percent in the fourth…

  7. What did we learn about the Heat? Lakers?

    Dec 26, 2010, 4:02 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    On Christmas 2009, LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers thumped the Los Angeles Lakers pretty good, winning by 15. Come June, that game was meaningless. That 2009 game looked a lot like the 2010 Lakers/Heat game. Which is to say, the Heat’s 16-point win has no real predictive value. If these two teams do meet again in…

  8. Andray Blatche, JaVale McGee suspended by Wizards for game due to fight

    Dec 25, 2010, 10:46 PM EDT

    McGee Blatche

    As if the Wizards were not going to face enough problems Sunday in San Antonio, now they are going ahead without their two centers. Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee have been suspended by the team for one game after an altercation between the two outside a Washington D.C. area bar turned physical and the Wizards’…

  9. Rick Carlisle to miss game after knee injury

    Dec 25, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    The Mavs have announced that Rick Carlisle will miss Monday night’s Mavericks game in Oklahoma City after knee surgery over the Christmas holiday. Carlisle’s having a rough year, health wise. He missed a game in preseason after fainting in practice. He actually spent some time in the hospital during that episode, and now will miss…

  10. Dwight Howard gets rare slow free throw foul, followed by technical

    Dec 25, 2010, 6:25 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINAL-LAKERS-MAGIC

    Dwight Howard takes too long on his free throws. A blog name Center’s Little Helper (via TrueHoop) has been ripping him for it for a while — the NBA Rule Book says he can only take 10 seconds, he usually takes a few seconds longer. It’s his way of trying to compensate for his poor…

  11. Dwyane Wade will play against Lakers

    Dec 25, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    After some question as to whether Dwyane Wade would be good to go with his knee hurting. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade is “fine” and will play versus the Lakers Saturday afternoon. The Lakers will likely look to go at Wade on the offensive end, as…

  12. Joe Maloof offers Geoff Petrie and Paul Westphal a bit of breathing room

    Dec 25, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Paul Westphal

    The 5-22 Kings, owners of the worst record in the entire league despite having some talented young pieces, are a genuine disappointment on a number of levels. As Sacramento’s season has spiraled further and further into the abyss, rumors and reports of the seemingly inevitable firing of Paul Westphal have begun to surface. Indications that…

  13. How stacked were the 80′s, really?

    Dec 25, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    magiccontraction

    When LeBron James came out and said that he thinks it would be great if great players on bad teams were able to go to good teams because their teams didn’t exist anymore (but he didn’t say the word contraction!), everyone nodded along in agreement. When he hearkened back in the conversation to those classic days…

  14. Paul Pierce still considers Hedo Turkoglu a difficult matchup

    Dec 25, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Hedo Turkoglu, Paul Pierce

    Even though the rest of the known world may use Hedo Turkoglu as a punchline, Paul Pierce — Turkoglu’s positional matchup in today’s game between the Celtics and Magic — still seems to have enormous respect for the man. From Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel (via Evan Dunlap): “Hedo is going to be great…

  15. Some Derrick Rose to whet your appetite

    Dec 25, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    derrick_rose

    There are only a small handful of players right now putting on as good a show as Derrick Rose every time he takes the the court. And he is your opener on Christmas — Rose’s Bulls visit the Knicks starting at noon eastern. Tune in for what may well be the most entertaining game on…

  16. Report: Nets looking to land Andre Miller along with ‘Melo

    Dec 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    millertrade

    The Denver Nuggets have suspended trade talks for Carmelo Anthony through the weekend, as Anthony is currently at home with his family after the untimely death of his sister. It was the classy and right thing for the Nuggets to do. But it doesn’t stop the rumor mill from cranking. The Nets are hoping to…

  17. Wizards JaVale McGee, Andray Blatche reportedly fight each other at club

    Dec 25, 2010, 7:50 AM EDT

    McGee Blatche

    Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee haven’t functioned too well together on the court as the “frontcourt of the future” in Washington. But apparently things are worse off it — the two reportedly exchanged punches outside a Washington club early Friday morning, according to Michael Lee at the Washington Post. The two both verbally abused each…

  18. Could Jason Richardson be a long-term fixture in Orlando?

    Dec 24, 2010, 7:38 PM EDT

    jrichardson_three

    No one should blame the Phoenix Suns for their reluctance to make a commitment to Jason Richardson. The now-Magic shooting guard is 30 years old after all, and with franchise centerpiece Steve Nash in the later stages of his career, it makes little sense to lock up veteran pieces for the long haul. You should…

  19. Tyreke Evans says he will not play All-Star weekend

    Dec 24, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) Evans_3-thumb-250x339-9343.jpg for post 1342

    A combination of injuries — physical and emotional — have crippled Tyreke Evans‘ season. Plantar fasciitis, one of the NBA’s most unfortunate, nagging injuries, has hindered Evans throughout the year, and made sure that the reigning Rookie of the Year would not be selected to this year’s All-Star Game. Regardless, Evans is a shoe-in for…

  20. “‘Twas the Night Before NBA Christmas”: A celebratory preview poem

    Dec 24, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    If, for some reason, you’re not so inclined, here’s the source material. We tried to stick to the rhyme scheme, but I’m like “The Jerk” in terms of rhythm. ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through “The A,” I was straining and searching for someting to say; The Celtics had proven that they were…
