    Dec 12, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Avery Johnson has been trying to see what his young players have got, and so Damion James has been getting some run — at least 15 minutes in 8 of the last 9. Not that he has been giving them a not of production — 35 percent shooting and too many turnovers, but the rebounding…

    Dec 12, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Carmelo Anthony wants a big market, superstar teammates, legendary status, lots of endorsement deals, and to party like a rock star.

    Dec 12, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    When the season started for the Cavaliers, it was all about J. J. Hickson. He was the young buck power forward, physical and tough, who would lead them into the future. He was underhyped, overproducing, basically everything LeBron James wasn’t. Now just a month into the season, Hickson is on the block. The News-Herald reports…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    “I don’t think any of us can speak frankly about pain until we are no longer enduring it.” -Arthur Golden. My wife’s biggest problem with being pregnant has nothing to do with the nausea.

    Dec 11, 2010, 9:55 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

    Our first quarter is over, so it’s time for that time honored cliche, first quarter MVPs, which usually have nothing to do with four-quarter MVPs. But instead, for our Saturday Starting Five, we’ll be covering those players who haven’t lived up to what their teams have needed, or paid, them to be. Sure, there are…

    Dec 11, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Could it be for all the talk, all the rumors, and all the clamoring that Carmelo Anthony simply winds up where he is now for the long-term?

    Dec 11, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Orlando Magic

    O.J. Mayo is in a slump. O.J. Mayo is no longer a starter. O.J. Mayo is on the trade block. And O.J. Mayo says he’s totally cool with Lionel Hollins about all this. Mayo started off the year with a shooting slump, and Hollins decided to move him to the bench for when his scoring…

  10. Knicks, Rockets talking swap for Anthony Randolph, first-rounder

    Dec 11, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Milwaukee Bucks

    So the Knicks could be getting back their first round pick which they traded to Houston for Tracy McGrady in order to get more cap space to try and sign LeBron James/Dwyane Wade/Chris Bosh. Instead they signed Amar’e Stoudemire and traded David Lee to Golden State (sign-and-trade) for Anthony Randolph, Ronny Turiaf, and Kelenna Azubuike.…

    Dec 11, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    Mike Miller had hopes of returning by Christmas in order to try and help the Heat with the Lakers. Even with the Heat playing better, there’s a significant need for Miller to get back on the floor. He’s a more reliable shooter, ball-handler, and defender than James Jones or Eddie House, and when the Heat…

  12. Who’s laughing at Erik Spoelstra now?

    Dec 11, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Miami Heat

    Three weeks ago we were eating turkey, watching the Lions lose (again), and making up our own favorite “Sure, Pat Riley isn’t taking over this team and (fill in the blank)” joke. The Heat were a mini-disaster and there were rampant rumors that his job was on the line. The entire time Spoelstra stayed calm…

    Dec 11, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Tyreke Evans was scheduled for an MRI Friday, and the fear being whispered about was the dreaded “stress fracture.” A tiny crack in the bone is extremely painful, hard to heal, and could keep him out for months. Kings fans waited with baited breath to find out if their franchise player was done for a…

  14. Chris Kaman out three weeks with sprained ankle. Welcome to the Clippers world.

    Dec 11, 2010, 9:01 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    Chris Kaman — you know, that tall guy who is supposed to be playing next to Blake Griffin — will be out the next three weeks at least, the team announced. He has an “aggravated bone bruise and deltoid ligament sprain of his left ankle.” Which means his ankle really, really hurts right now. This…

  16. George Karl joins the 1,000-win club

    Dec 10, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    The last time George Karl coached a team with a losing record, Notre Dame was the undefeated national champions, the Los Angeles Dodgers won the World Series and the Democrats thought it was a good idea to nominate Michael Dukakis for president of the United States. Karl has coached a long time and won in…

    Dec 10, 2010, 10:13 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    Gary Chouest was oh, so close to buying the New Orleans Hornets. He already had 25 percent and was going to buy out the rest from George Shinn. Then he got a better look at the $83 million in debt they had, or his business supplying vessels to the off-shore gulf oil industry took a…

    Image (1) bosh-heat-thumb-250x140-17979.jpg for post 3618

    Chris Bosh is not loved in Toronto. At all. He left the Toronto Raptors cold and the feelings north of the border match it. I mean, check this out. It’s not quite in the “LeBron is not loved in Cleveland” category of outright hated, but that is just because Canadians are too nice. Canadians love…

    Naismith4[1]

    James Naismith needed a new indoor game for the children under his charge at a Massachusetts YMCA. He came up with a sport where a ball had to be thrown into peach baskets suspended 10 feet in the air. For the sport, he came up with just 13 rules. No, one of them was not…
