  1. Denver’s other big problem: Nene

    Jan 23, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Beyond the ongoing, never-ending, painfully unresolved saga of Carmelo Anthony lies the dread and doom of another situation. If you check Denver’s books, you’ll notice that Nene has an ETO (Early Termination Option) for 2011, meaning he can jump ship and enter free agency should he elect to do so. Nene loves Denver and wants…

  2. You’ll never believe it, but Blake Griffin had a big dunk

    Jan 23, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Once upon a time, there was a man. Okay, I don’t think that’s verifiable at this point.  All of our evidence seems to suggest he’s somehow more than a man. Some sort of part-man, part-robot, part-beast combination. A man-beast-bot. Anyway, he did something insane that involved jumping again last night. Observe. That’s a tasty meatball.…

  3. Brandon Roy wants to come back this season. Please, Brandon, no.

    Jan 22, 2011, 10:24 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    Brandon Roy hopes to return this season, as he told press before their game Saturday night. Brandon, we love you. Brandon, no. Brandon Roy is not going to be 100%, probably ever again, but he’s not going to be anywhere close to it this season. It makes sense that he wants to come back. After…

  4. Phil Jackson is also for contraction, small-market man that he is

    Jan 22, 2011, 7:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson ac

    Phil Jackson decided to back up his girlfriend, which is a smart thing to do as she’s also the daughter of his boss and, you know, his girlfriend. Even less surprising is that he’s backing up his girlfriend by burying small markets, in which he’s never had to achieve success. “I think that’s what the…

  5. Report: Knicks still lobbing Carmelo offers, Nuggets still rejecting

    Jan 22, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    With the Nets out of the way, New York has resumed its calm, cool, and collected pursuit of Carmelo Anthony, but are hitting the same roadblock they have since the beginning: Denver doesn’t want hardly anything the Knicks have to offer. From The New York Post: A deal with the Nuggets appears to be, according…

  6. The Spurs and the new balance of attack

    Jan 22, 2011, 3:37 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    San Antonio has lost six times out of 43 games.  That to me, puts it in the best perspective. They’ve had success 86% of the time. They’ve failed less than 15% of the time. That’s insane. This from a team with a trio of aging stars and late first round and early second round picks…

  7. Bosh out, Wade questionable as Miami tries to stop skid

    Jan 22, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    The Heat are now on a four game losing streak, and the easy answer is injury, which has kept at least one of the Triad out since their first loss of this streak against the… ahem… Clippers. And against Toronto in Miami this evening, it would appear they’re going to be short at least one…

  8. That warm feeling, Pacers staff, is underneath you

    Jan 22, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    This is a long story, let-me-sum-up kind of weekend. Get used to it. The short version: ESPN reports that Pacers management is unhappy with both coach Jim O’Brien and GM David Morway (you thought Larry Bird was the GM, didn’t you? Meet more Pacers fans. They’re nice.). They’re so unhappy, should the team suffer another…

  9. The Hornets beat the Hawks… no, we mean the Hornets really beat the Hawks

    Jan 22, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Hawks v Timberwolves

    This game changes nothing. That should be clear. The Atlanta Hawks were never contenders in anyone’s eye, not seriously, and this loss doesn’t preclude them from some insane, fueled by desire, special combination of events championship that happens once in a lifetime against all odds. It makes it less likely, because, well, who lets that…

  10. Jerry West thinks Lakers’ days are numbered; Celtics may be best this year

    Jan 21, 2011, 10:22 PM EDT

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

    Do you have any idea how much it pains Jerry West to say the Celtics are the best team in the NBA? To say that the Lakers’ window is closing because they are getting old? But West is nothing if not a straight shooter, and it was that speaking to the Orange County Automobile Dealers…

  11. Kobe clears everything up: Denver fans weren’t “stupid,” they were “idiots”

    Jan 21, 2011, 8:59 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Kobe Bryant is used to getting booed in Denver, so when they rain down on him Friday night it should be no big deal. Thursday, when asked about fans in Denver booing Carmelo Anthony after he dropped 35 on Oklahoma City in a Nugget win, he said the fans in Denver were “stupid.” His point:…

  12. League holds up Ajinca trade to Raptors. For now.

    Jan 21, 2011, 8:41 PM EDT

    Alexis Ajinca, Ryan Anderson, Steve Novak

    It was enough to raise some eyebrows. The Toronto Raptors buy out Peja Stojakovic (who technically has to go on waivers but nobody wants to pay him the rest of his $15 million, so he’ll clear). Then he is a free agent and already has a verbal commitment to go to Dallas. However, Dallas has…

  13. Dan Gilbert thanks Cleveland fans for their patience, asks for more

    Jan 21, 2011, 7:01 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has been nothing if not outspoken in the months since LeBron James publicly left the Cavaliers for the Miami Heat last summer. Immediately after “The Decision,” Gilbert wrote a scathing letter that promised LeBron’s decision had cursed the Miami Heat and that the Cavaliers would win a championship before LeBron would.…

  14. Are we going to see LeBron’s post-up game?

    Jan 21, 2011, 6:45 PM EDT

    LeBron Post

    At 6-9 and an estimated 270 pounds, LeBron James is the same size as Blake Griffin and Karl Malone. He usually has at least 30 or 40 pounds on anybody who guards him. He is one of the strongest players in the league, and has no problem finishing inside with either hand. All of those…

  15. Video: On fifth anniversary, watch Kobe drop 81 again

    Jan 21, 2011, 5:17 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Five years ago Saturday, Kobe Bryant took over a game like nobody ever quite had before. Sure, Wilt got triple digits one time, but that had an element of sham to it (his teammates were fouling to stop the clock and get the ball back so they could feed him and get him over the…

  16. Celtics’ Glen Davis is just fine coming off the bench

    Jan 21, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Glen Davis loves being a Celtic. Loves that he is a key contributor to a contending team. Loves coming off the bench. But when Kevin Garnett was out recently, Davis stepped into the starting role — and struggled. He admitted to Paul Flannery at WEEI that once he moved in with the first five he…

  17. Warriors owner willing to make big moves

    Jan 21, 2011, 3:38 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Golden State Warriors

    Things are better in the Bay Area this year. And not just because San Francisco has a new restaurant called Sushirrito (sushi served in burrito form — don’t laugh, it’s good). Things are also better with the Golden State Warriors. Well, not the Warriors winning games part, that’s still going pretty poorly overall. But the…

  18. Carmelo Anthony misses shootaround, expected to play Friday against Lakers

    Jan 21, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    Carmelo Anthony did not take part in the Nuggets morning shootaround before taking on the Lakers Friday in Denver, with coach George Karl citing personal reasons. When pressed if Anthony would miss the game against the Lakers — players often miss practices or games right before they are traded — Karl told the Associated Press…

  19. Does nyet mean nyet? Nets not necessarily out of ‘Melo sweepstakes.

    Jan 21, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    The person with the strongest negotiating position is the person willing to walk away from the table. Nobody thought that was the New Jersey Nets — they needed a big star. They needed someone who could open their new Brooklyn home in 2012, who could attract other big time free agents to the team. They…

  20. Knicks’ Wilson Chandler fires agent, looks to cash in next summer

    Jan 21, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

    WChandler_Hinrich

    Back in the fall, Wilson Chandler’s agent Chris Luchey tried to convince Knicks GM Donnie Walsh to sign his client — whose rookie deal was about to end — to an extension. The Knicks are all about financial flexibility going forward, so they said no. Chandler has gone out and had the best year of…
