  1. Josh Smith says Hawks not planning to trade him

    Nov 22, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    Josh Smith has come up in a lot of rumors lately, from the ridiculous (Rip Hamilton, really?) to big move stuff like Steve Nash rumors. With Al Horford inked to a big deal, can they really keep Smith long term, too? But the Hawks told Josh Smith he’s not going anywhere, which is what Smith…

  2. NBA Power Rankings, where the Spurs, they jingle, jangle, jingle

    Nov 22, 2010, 12:52 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, or, how the West looks better than the East right now by a long shot. 1. Spurs (11-1). Distraction? What are you talking about? Right now the Spurs are focused and playing the best basketball in the association — and the offense is really clicking with Parker dishing a little…

  3. Heat’s options without Haslem: More Juwan Howard or get another player. Yuck.

    Nov 22, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    More Juwan Howard? If this were 1988, that might be a good call for a team, but we’ve all moved on from that year, something evidenced by the fact we no longer consider “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” good music. In 2010 both Howard and Bobby McFerrin should be used only in moderation. But right now,…

  4. Billups wants to stay in Denver, knows that may not happen

    Remember when Chauncey Billups was brought in to Denver, a change at the point as the shoot-first Allen Iverson went to Detroit? That move changed who the Nuggets were, it brought a seriousness and professionalism to their identity. That is when they became a threat in the West. Billups likes it in Denver, but he…

  5. Video: Pau Gasol goes 10-for-10 from the floor

    Nov 22, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    Image (1) pgasol_dunk-thumb-250x322-12901.jpg for post 2333

    Pau Gasol can shoot the rock. Great footwork, great touch, can finish with either hand. He is the most skilled big man in the game today. And he destroyed the Golden State Warriors, going 10-for-10 from the floor. Part of it was the Warriors thought about using Vladimir Radmanovic on him, but watch the video…

  6. Raptors would consider trading Peja Stojakovic again

    Nov 22, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New Orleans Hornets

    Hey, Peja Stojakovic. Before you get totally unpacked and settled in up in Toronto, you may want to hear what team general manager Brian Colangelo told reporters Sunday. Via Ryan McNeill’s twitter: Colangelo also said that the team would look into a trade or buyout if Peja Stojakovic doesn’t like his role here in Toronto.…

  7. Nuggets wanted Brook Lopez in Carmelo Anthony trade

    Nov 22, 2010, 8:12 AM EDT

    Image (1) nba_lopez.jpg for post 580

    Now it is coming into focus why the Nets and Nuggets have never quite worked out the Carmelo Anthony trade… According to Sam Amick at FanHouse, the Nuggets wanted the one untouchable on the Nets Roster. … although a league source with knowledge of the Nets’ discussions said Denver has pushed instead for third-year center…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where Boston lost to Toronto and we were confused by that

    Nov 22, 2010, 2:34 AM EDT

    Pgasol_layup

    What you missed while watching the MLS championship be decided on an own goal… Raptors 102, Celtics 101: Rajon Rondo sat this one out and Nate Robinson started in his place and ended with 22 points on 8 of 14 shooting — but he had just two assists. The Celtics offense just felt different. Thing…

  9. Udonis Haslem has ligament tear in foot, out until All-Star break at least

    Nov 21, 2010, 10:43 PM EDT

    Image (1) haslem_sad-thumb-250x140-18298.jpg for post 3694

    UPDATE 10:43 pm: The recovery time on this is a lot worse than we first thought — depending on the surgery or other options, Haslem could be out until the All-Star break in February, if not longer. If you want an idea of how this impacts the Heat: Memphis outrebounded the Heat 16-5 after Haslem…

  10. Ron Artest doesn’t really think Mike Beasley is a genius

    Nov 21, 2010, 9:59 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Ron Artest is actually a pretty nice guy to the guys he guards, despite being, you know, Ron Artest. He’s been complimentary to Brandon Roy, Kevin Durant, many stars. Turns out Michael Beasley is not such a star in Ron’s mind. The reason? Not smart enough. From the Pioneer Press: “Beasley should watch (Miami star) LeBron…

  11. Indiana’s not interested in improving their roster through trade, thanks

    Nov 21, 2010, 4:02 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Pacers aren’t bad this year. They’re 5-6, Roy Hibbert looks better every day, the young talent is meshing and things are looking up. With a solid trade the Pacers could make a significant move forward. Not that there are a lot of possibilities for such a trade, but don’t be expecting one anyway. From…

  12. Want to shoot like Ray Allen? Well you can’t, but here’s how can get closer

    Nov 21, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Hello, ladies. Look at your man. Now look at Ray Allen. Now look at your man’s jumper now back to Ray Allen’s jumper. Don’t you wish your man’s jumper could stroke like Ray Allen’s? Well if you follow the advice Ray Allen gave the Boston Herald, he can. Well, okay, not really. Because he’s Ray…

  13. The Bobcats finally have a triple-double

    Nov 21, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Bobcats have been around since 2004, and yet they have never had a triple-double. Not one. Not from Gerald Wallace, not from… okay, that pretty much wraps up the players who could have had a triple-double for the Bobcats. So you can see why they’ve never had one. Until last night. Stephen Jackson, in…

  14. Fear Blake Griffin. Fear. Him.

    Nov 21, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    BGriffin_dunk2

    Yes, the Clippers suck. Yes, they lost — again — to the New York Knicks Saturday night. But Blake Griffin is a beast. A physical force. A highlight reel. A reason to actually watch Clippers games. He had 44 points and 15 rebounds against the Knicks. We know you didn’t spend your Saturday night watching…

  15. Game of the night: Where even the Heat have to be asking “What happened?”

    Nov 21, 2010, 10:21 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Memphis Grizzlies

    When I say this, please realize that I very badly simply want to credit the Grizzlies with a terrific win. I have no idea what just happened. The Grizzlies beat the Heat in front of what is likely their biggest or second biggest crowd of the season on a Rudy Gay buzzer-beater fadeway baseline jumpshot…

  16. Miami’s Udonis Haslem may have serious foot injury

    Nov 21, 2010, 9:01 AM EDT

    Image (1) haslem_sad-thumb-250x140-18298.jpg for post 3694

    Udonis Haslem, who has been the heart of the Miami Heat’s defense and the one player who has brought unquestioned effort every night, may be out with a foot injury. He had to be helped off the court during the Heat’s eventual loss to the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday. The team said that the X-rays cane…

  17. Chris Bosh (or one of his people) is still confused about social media rules

    Nov 20, 2010, 11:05 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    During the second quarter of the Heat-Grizzlies game, a tweet was published from Chris Bosh’s account promoting a charity event with Pat Riley Sunday night in Miami. Unfortunately, players are prohibited from Tweeting during a game. Brian Windhorst noted the tweet and retweeted it, and subsequently Bosh deleted it. The odds of it actually being…

  18. Saturday Starting 5: Injury Damage

    Nov 20, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Portland Trail Blazers

    Hey, so, you’re stuck with me on the weekends, so I thought we’d put together something you can count on. Every weekend here at PBT we’ll have the Saturday Starting Five. Five elements, chosen thematically (so I’m not just basically vomiting words onto a screen for you) and brought for discussion about the NBA. Today’s…

  19. Tim Duncan is the All-Time Spur’s Points Leader

    Nov 20, 2010, 5:41 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    There’s little doubt to anyone who the greatest San Antonio Spur of all time is. Most championships, most Finals appearances, most MVPs, most Finals MVPs, the list goes on an on. And now Tim Duncan can add two more franchise records to his list, most games played and most points scored as a Spur. Duncan…

  20. Steve Nash to sit out Saturday in Charlotte, may miss Monday also

    Nov 20, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Pelvic instability is no laughing matter. Sure, it kind of sounds like it should be, but it’s not. So stop snickering. It’s keeping Steve Nash out of his second consecutive game Saturday night in Charlotte, and he likely will miss Monday in Houston, also, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. Officially, this is…
