    Just a few hours before Blake Griffin wins the Dunk Contest on Feb. 19, a bunch of guys who want their NBA shot will get a turn in the spotlight. Sort of. The D-League All-Star game is part of the All-Star weekend festivities and is taking place next door to Staples Center at the NBA…

    Ron Artest being traded or not remains a moot point — no other team is going to take on the three-years, $22 million left on his deal after this season. Still, for the record, despite the reports, Artest told media members at Lakers practice Wednesday he does not want to be traded (as reported by…

  3. Cuban reiterates (sort of) Mavs would be willing to trade for ‘Melo without extension

    Feb 3, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    You kind of have to read between the lines of the Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told the Sporting News. Well, not very hard. It’s actually obvious what he is really saying, he just doesn’t want to write David Stern another large check. Cuban can’t say Carmelo Anthony by name — that would be tampering —…

  4. Andre Miller would be fine if Portland wants to trade him

    Feb 3, 2011, 11:41 AM EDT

    millertrade

    Andre Miller is a little tired of living in the 1990s. Which is really what living in Portland is like. With the Trail Blazers realizing it’s time to rethink and restart the team building process everyone is on the trade block. That includes Miller, a quality veteran point guard who could help a lot of…

  5. Jason Williams reaches deal to join Grizzlies

    Feb 3, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    jason-williams

    Jason Williams didn’t like being the fourth point guard on the depth chard in Orlando — despite being so close to Epcot — so we’ll see how he likes being the backup in Memphis. Just a week after being waived by the Magic, Williams is about to sign a deal with the Grizzlies, according to…

  6. PBT Thursday morning one liners

    Feb 3, 2011, 10:50 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 5

    The Dwight Howard technical count is at 13 heading into tonight’s game against the Heat. When he gets to 16 (and it is when) he gets a fine and a one-game suspension, then gets a game suspension for every other tech after that. How Joy Division songs explain the All-Star starters. Don’t be surprised if…

  7. Kobe Bryant tells critics to kiss his a–

    Feb 3, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Lakers

    Jerry West. Magic Johnson. Seemingly every fan on a Lakers message board for the past week. Kobe Bryant has a message for you. He was asked in a post-practice reporters scrum Wednesday about the criticism the team has had and the rumors of trades to motivate the team, and his response (captured by Lakers.com) was…

  8. Another day, another thunderous Blake Griffin dunk

    Feb 3, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    There is this buzz at Clippers games now — people know it is coming. At some point Blake Griffin is going to get behind the defense, the lob will go up higher than any human should be able to catch it and Griffin will get it and throw it down.  Every time he touches the…

  9. MRI confirms Deron Williams wrist just strained

    Feb 3, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    Who knows when we’ll get to see Deron Williams back on the court, but at least the Jazz know there is nothing seriously wrong. Wrist specialist Dr. Steve Huish reviewed the MRI results and examined Williams and reached the same conclusion that the previous doctors had — it’s jut a strain, according to the Salt…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Cavaliers almost won one. Almost.

    Feb 3, 2011, 2:44 AM EDT

    Pacers Cavaliers Basketball

    What you missed while thinking about every move Nicolas Cage ever made… Pacers 117, Cavaliers 112: And we are at 22 losses in a row — but it was so, so close. This game was tied at 110-110 with just over a minute left. First the Pacers’ Darren Collison knocked down a three pointer. After…

  11. Joakim Noah says he expects return after All-Star break

    Feb 3, 2011, 1:47 AM EDT

    Image (1) noah_tired-thumb-250x166-21051.jpg for post 4327

    Joakim Noah said Wednesday night his hand is “coming along” and when asked for a timeline said he plans to return right after the All-Star break. Noah is traveling with the Bulls on the annual “ice show trip” — and if you saw the weather in Chicago you have at least one idea why he…

  12. Lakers’ Andrew Bynum likely to return Thursday against Spurs

    Feb 2, 2011, 11:40 PM EDT

    Image (1) bynum-thumb-250x176-5609.jpg for post 96

    See, we told you there was nothing to worry about. Why would you worry about Andrew Bynum’s knees? The center who missed last game with a bruised knee practiced (limited, but practiced) with the Lakers today and seems likely to go Thursday night against the Spurs, Phil Jackson told the Orange County Register. “He says…

  13. If Blake Griffin makes All-Star Game, expect him to miss Rookie Challenge

    Feb 2, 2011, 9:57 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Blake Griffin is on the bubble for being selected to play in the All-Star Game as a rookie (we have him in, but mostly for the entertainment factor). Everyone (including the Clippers) will find out Thursday. If he does make the cut to play the game in his home arena, expect him to skip out…

  14. Bucks Drew Gooden out 4-to-6 weeks with foot pain

    Feb 2, 2011, 9:41 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    The Bucks just cannot seem to catch a break. Or, they are catching too many breaks. Power forward Drew Gooden will be out for the next 4-to-6 weeks due to ongoing plantar fasciitis in his left foot, the team announced Gooden had missed the last six games (and 21 overall this season) due to this…

  15. Rick Fox dispenses gambling advice, would like 144 hard-boiled eggs

    Feb 2, 2011, 8:15 PM EDT

    Rick Fox

    Rick Fox won a few titles with the Lakers once upon a time, but since then, he’s been busy as a kind-of-sometimes actor. He had a nice little bit on HBO’s Oz back in the day. Did well in a cameo on the unfortunately canceled Party Down. There were also rumors that he appeared on…

  16. Old man game is winning in the NBA

    Feb 2, 2011, 6:54 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    In the NBA — like in society at large — we have this fascination with youth. Blake Griffin is a YouTube sensation. We all fall in love with the up-and-coming Oklahoma City Thunder. Fans obsess over draft picks. But what about the other end of the spectrum — who are the oldest teams in the…

  17. Thunder recall Cole Aldrich from the D-League

    Feb 2, 2011, 6:42 PM EDT

    Cole Aldrich

    The Oklahoma City Thunder have announced that they have recalled rookie center Cole Aldrich from the D-League. Aldrich was the 11th overall pick in the 2010 draft. He has appeared in seven games for the Thunder this season, and averaged 1 point and 1.9 rebounds per game. In 19 games with the Tulsa 66ers, Aldrich…

  18. Should the Bucks be playing at a faster pace?

    Feb 2, 2011, 5:56 PM EDT

    Scott Skiles

    Alex Boeder of BrewHoop thinks so: The Bucks have played 46 games. In their 23 fastest-paced games, they are 14-9. In their 23 slowest-paced games, they are 5-18. That’s a very interesting statistic, to say the least. Boeder goes on to point out that the Bucks are an excellent defensive team who rebound the ball…

  19. Learn the fundamentals of basketball with the one and only Matt Bonner!

    Feb 2, 2011, 5:33 PM EDT

    Matt Bonner

    The NBA features many great teachers of the game. One could fill a book with notes of Kobe Bryant‘s footwork, or lessons of Luis Scola‘s infinite moves and counters in the post. Yet if asked to name the wisest of all the league’s fine instructors, the entire basketball world would cry out Matt Bonner’s name…

  20. How about Angry Larry Birds?

    Feb 2, 2011, 4:45 PM EDT

    Image (1) Larry_Bird-thumb-250x166-22068.jpg for post 6301

    Angry Birds is the crack of phone games. Completely addictive and you keep chasing the high of killing those pigs even when you know you should be working or talking to loved ones or paying attention to the road while driving. What would be better? Angry Larry Birds. On NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon…
