  1. Does Dwight Howard already have one eye on the door?

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:57 PM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    This is where we are now. When a player is a couple years away from free agency — as Dwight Howard is in 2012 — there will be stories about how if the team doesn’t win a title he is gone. The stories have started about Chris Paul as well, all in the wake of…

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:25 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New Orleans Hornets

    Smart move by the Dallas Mavericks, making Peja Stojakovic active for a scrimmage in his first game. That way there is no pressure on him. Stojakovic will make his debut as a Dallas Mavericks on Monday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com. Stojakovic was signed by the Mavericks Jan.…

  3. Rick Adelman not worried about next season, next contract

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:01 PM EDT

    rick adelman

    Houston is at a crossroads — the plan of a team based around Yao Ming crumbled around the big man’s ankles and they have to figure out what is next. With that, they have done the smart thing and not offered any contract extensions to the six potential free agents on the roster. Flexibility, that’s…

  4. Why is Gilbert Arenas struggling? Because it’s cold outside.

    Feb 7, 2011, 11:31 AM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas, Stan Van Gundy

    You know what was wrong with Gilbert Arenas Sunday? Why he was limping around and shooting 0-7 from the floor in Orlando’s loss to Boston? It was cold outside, he told CBSSports’ Ken Berger. “Cities that are high on the map, I have trouble with,” Arenas said. “Like (Boston) during the winter. But as soon…

    Avery-Bradley

    Marquis Daniels frightening collapse Sunday turns out to be about a bruised spinal column that is going to keep him out a month at least maybe more.

    Feb 7, 2011, 10:09 AM EDT

    Ray Allen

    Ray Allen will be one of the contestants in the three-point contest All-Star weekend. Great piece by a Celtics fan and father talking about Kevin Garnett the role model: “He’s a jerk but he’s our jerk.” Linas Kleiza has denied a Greek report that he in part blamed the Raptors medical staff for his season-ending…

  7. Your Monday morning cup of coffee, er, Blake Griffin dunk

    Feb 7, 2011, 8:44 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin Dunk

    What’s a Monday morning without a Blake Griffin dunk? It’s like Boston without a Dunkin Donuts run, or New York without an H&H Bagels. We could go with a couple from the Miami Heat game. You should check out the big Windmill dunk. But the best was this put-back dunk. Nobody on the Heat puts…

  8. Stephen Jackson is not changing just because of your little fines

    Feb 7, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    Stephen Jackson has lost $172,000 this season in fines and unpaid salary for his 11 technicals and one suspension. That is supposed to be a deterrent. Jackson laughs at your deterrent. And he is going to keep berating refs for their lousy calls, as he told the Associated Press. “No, I get techs because I…

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    What you missed while watching the Black Eyed Peas reenact Tron (that is what they were doing, right?)… The Celtics beating the Magic was the game of the day (and we’re just now sure how good Orlando really is). Heat 97, Clippers 79: Both teams started this game out looking sloppy — poor shooting, lots…

    Kobe Bryant Michael Jordan

    With the end of the Super Bowl fans attention will turn to… well for a few days the breakdown of that game and the ticket fiasco. But after the sports world’s attention drifts to the NBA and the All-Star Game. We’ve talked about the starters, the reserves and there will be a lot more talk…

  12. Shaq could be out until All-Star break

    Feb 6, 2011, 7:30 PM EDT

    balance bracelets Shaquille O'Neal

    Shaquille O’Neal couldn’t play against Orlando Sunday, when Boston could have used him to match up on Dwight Howard. He will not suit up Monday against the Bobcats, either. And the Celtics might shut him down until the All-Star break, Doc Rivers said before Sunday’s game, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of Comcast New England…

  13. Boston looks like a title contender in win. Orlando? We’re not sure.

    Feb 6, 2011, 5:59 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Celtics

    The big news out of this game is the situation involving Marquis Daniels injury — he had to be taken off the court on a stretcher — which we cover in detail here and will follow going forward. Boston is a title contender in the NBA — that’s never been in question and why was…

  14. LeBron to refs: “I got a Super Bowl party to go to”

    Feb 6, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is a man who likes a good party. And Super Bowl Sunday is really about parties — ones that start long before the game kicks off under a massive video screen. Which is why the Heat had a noon tip-off against the Clippers Sunday, so fans could come to the game and still…

  15. Video: Get out of Al Thornton’s way

    Feb 6, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Al Thornton

    Al Thornton can get up. As proof, we bring you this. We should add that apparently Zaza Pachulia is not intimidating anyone from going to the rim. But this is one of the better dunks of the season. It might even crack Blake Griffin‘s top 10.

  16. Welcome back, Rip Hamilton

    Feb 6, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Milwaukee Bucks

    Last week, Rip Hamilton was deactivated. Most thought he’d never play again in a Pistons uniform. I certainly never thought he’d play again in a Pistons uniform. Most, and I, were wrong. In our defense, however, we weren’t the only ones surprised by Hamilton’s on-court appearance. Hamilton himself was shocked he was going in. From…

  17. Rockets suspend Aaron Brooks for walking off court

    Feb 6, 2011, 1:16 PM EDT

    Aaron Brooks

    Aaron Brooks is getting a time out for acting like a four year old. Midway through the fourth quarter of the Rockets overtime win against Memphis Saturday night, Aaron Brooks was subbed out by Rockets coach Rick Adelman. Brooks walked past the bench and straight to the locker room. Not because of injury but because…

  18. Kendrick Perkins has every intention of testing free agency

    Feb 6, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Kendrick Perkins just got back from a severe knee injury. He’s not even able to put in a full game’s work yet. But he’s busted his tail to come back early, and his impact has helped the Celtics tremendously (not that they needed a lot of help). He worked hard to get himself back in…

  19. Another Blazer big man was injured. We’re out of jokes.

    Feb 6, 2011, 9:06 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Portland Trail Blazers

    There shouldn’t be anyway this is true, but sadly, for Blazer fans, it is.  In the course of sending the Cavaliers to the worst single-season losing streak in NBA history, Samardo Samuels‘ elbow made contact with Blazer center Dante Cunningham‘s face. He started bleeding and was taken back to the locker room for examination. He…

  20. Stop us if you’ve heard this one: New York closing in on Melo

    Feb 6, 2011, 12:52 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Recently we spread the word on a Yahoo! report saying Melo’s people had informed teams that the Knicks were the only team he would sign an extension with. From there, there has been more movement towards an actual trade with New York, signaling a possible shift in Denver’s so-far ice-cold approach to dealing with the…
