  1. Rodney Stuckey leaves game with shoulder injury, X-rays negative

    Jan 26, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey injured

    In the first quarter Wednesday Rodney Stuckey tried to fight around a Carmelo Anthony pick and injured his shoulder to the point he had to leave the game. Stuckey will not return to the Nuggets game, however the X-rays were negative. Which is good news. But watching him as he left the game whatever he…

  2. Jason Williams has been waived by Orlando Magic

    Jan 26, 2011, 9:41 PM EDT

    jason-williams

    UPDATE 9:41 pm: In a sign that this is the end, the Orlando Magic tonight waived Jason Williams. It would be stunning if anyone picked him up at this point. Williams had missed five games recently due to a personal issue, but he dressed with the Magic on Monday night. However, he did not accompany…

  3. Knicks pass Lakers as league’s most valuable franchise

    Jan 26, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire high five

    The return of the Knicks to prominence has led to a 12 percent jump in the value of the franchise, vaulting it over the Lakers into the top spot on Forbes’ rankings of NBA franchise value. The Knicks jumped from a worth of $586 million to $655 million, based on increased season ticket sales and…

  4. Brandon Roy thinks his knees will never be 100% again

    Jan 26, 2011, 7:02 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy was well on his way to NBA superstardom after an 08-09 campaign that saw him average 22.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game with an impressive PER of 24.08. Then the knee injuries came. Roy still averaged 21.5 points per game last season, but missed 17 regular-season games, saw his efficiency…

  5. Report: Javaris Crittenton to sign in D-League

    Javaris Crittenton is getting another shot, this time in the D-League. He has to be approved by the league but that is expected to happen, followed by Crittenton being picked up by the Dakota Wizards, according to Scott Schroeder at FanHouse. It’s a road back to the league for a guy that showed a lot…

  6. It’s time to talk about Al Jefferson’s defense

    Jan 26, 2011, 6:07 PM EDT

    Nazr Mohammed, Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap

    The Utah Jazz have had a tough road trip. They lost all five games on the trip, gave up 96 or more points in all five losses, lost to the 76ers, Wizards, and Nets, and lost to the Celtics and Lakers by a combined 53 points. The team’s record is currently 27-18, but their win…

  7. So, just how bad are the Cavaliers?

    Jan 26, 2011, 4:59 PM EDT

    Samardowned

    The 8-37 Cavaliers have lost 18 straight games and 28 of their last 29 on their way to claiming the worst record in the league. That’s the bad news. The worse news is that the Cavaliers are considerably worse than their record indicates. As bad as the Cavs’ record indicates, the team’s win margin is…

  8. Report: NBA Union head says lockout could wipe out next season

    Jan 26, 2011, 4:53 PM EDT

    bhunter

    There will be a lockout come July 1. Wish I had any reason at all to tell you otherwise, there just is no cause. Talks for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement are at a standstill right now. The question remains: How bad a lockout? As in, lockout in July and August but solved in time…

  9. Chris Bosh looks mahvelous on Maxim photo shoot video

    Jan 26, 2011, 4:31 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Of Miami’s triad of stars, Chris Bosh is the one really enjoying the turn at celebrity. Not that he was a nobody before, but this is a whole new level of famous. The people from Maxim do not call guys from the Toronto Raptors for sunny, poolside photo shoots. They called Bosh. Maxim released a…

  10. Sorry, New York, but Stoudemire is no MVP. Rose either.

    Jan 26, 2011, 3:10 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    We all want to be smart, clever, cutting edge. Nobody wants to give the tired, same old answer. Even if it’s the right one. Ask “experts” and fans who the best player in the NBA is and they’ll talk about how Player X is better than LeBron James. Kobe has more rings and finishes better,…

  11. Jerry West says he wasn’t calling those Lakers old

    Jan 26, 2011, 2:35 PM EDT

    Image (1) jWest-thumb-250x166-18358.jpg for post 3706

    A couple of days ago Jerry West — in what seemed a low-key venue in front of a bunch of car dealers in Southern California — questioned the Lakers defense, how long they could remain on top and used a favorite phrase of your grandparents, “long in the tooth.” But he wasn’t talking about those…

  12. Knicks look to add big man such as Joel Przybilla or Marc Gasol

    Jan 26, 2011, 12:58 PM EDT

    Image (1) marc-gasol-thumb-250x210-17949.jpg for post 3610

    Okay, sure, the Knicks would love to trade for Carmelo Anthony. We’re sick of talking about it, too, but we are legally obligated to throw that in any time the Knicks and trades are mentioned in the same paragraph. But that’s not the only trade the Knicks are considering, according to Mitch Lawrence at the…

  13. Suns want Vince Carter the gunner back

    Jan 26, 2011, 12:05 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    In his first 10 games as part of the Suns, the dry air and high-octane offense in Phoenix seemed to agree with Vince Carter. He averaged 18.9 points per game and appeared comfortable back in his role as high-scoring gunner. A space he occupied for much of his career (you can debate amongst yourselves if…

  14. For Newark this isn’t a stopover, this is an audition

    prudential center New Jersey

    The New Jersey Nets are using Newark and the Prudential Center as sort of a layover on the way to Brooklyn in 2012. Get out of the Meadowlands and into a better arena — read: more revenue streams — that is an easy train trip from New York to get the people in the boroughs…

  15. Dunk of the Night: Tyson Chandler throws it down. Yes, Tyson Chandler.

    Jan 26, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Tyson Chandler

    On a night when Blake Griffin plays, Tyson Chandler has the best dunk of the night?. I’ll have to double-check Revelations, but I’m pretty sure that’s one of the signs of the end times. Griffin did have a nice dunk, but nothing quite like Chandler, who clearly won this dunk contest. The guy most credited…

  16. Blake Griffin is fine. Stop worrying. It’s just a bruise.

    Jan 26, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    If it weren’t for that whole “missing last season” thing, we’d have put a red cape on the back of Blake Griffin and be constructing a myth of invincibility around the man right now. I mean, we’ve seen him fly, so we can assume bullets bounce right off him, right? Dallas’ Brendan Haywood put that…

  17. Carmelo Anthony has no idea what is going to happen

    Jan 26, 2011, 9:53 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Through the entire Melodrama — from before training camp up through last week — there was a confidence around Carmelo Anthony. Like he felt in some control of the situation, like he knew what was going to happen. No more. Mikhail Prokhorov changed the game. The Nets walked away. Everybody’s fallback option is gone. The…

  18. Video: Lamar Odom with the rainbow circus shot

    Jan 26, 2011, 8:44 AM EDT

    Image (1) Odom_Allen-thumb-250x375-12607.jpg for post 2246

    Pretty much everything was working for the Lakers against the Jazz Tuesday. Case in point: This prayer, rainbow arch shot from Lamar Odom. No way that falls, except of course it does for the Lakers on this night. Really, this shot was the highlight of a game that was over early.

  19. The NBA and the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness

    Perhaps you’re familiar with NBC’s hit comedy “Parks and Recreation” (9:30 p.m. EST Thursdays on NBC- MEGA-PLUG). Perhaps you’re familiar with the season premier last week in which the Parks Department was forced to operate a youth basketball league on a shoestring budget. And perhaps you’re familiar with head coach Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness.…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Celtics may not have needed Perkins for this one

    Jan 26, 2011, 3:34 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett

    What you missed while wishing Ricky Gervais would host the Oscars… Nuggets 120, Wizards 109: This was the dreaded fourth game in five nights for the Wizards, usually the night every team mails it in. The good news is that Andray Blatche didn’t — he hustled. Didn’t see that coming, did you Flip? It was…
