  1. Did Manu see a UFO? Did it cause his shooting slump? The truth is out there.

    Dec 10, 2010, 2:51 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    Back on Dec. 1, when the Spursv were in Los Angeles, Manu Ginobili thought he saw a strange light in the sky. He told Jeff McDonald of the Express-News he thought a plane was crashing at nearby Santa Monica Airport, but that turned out not to be the case. So he tweeted about it, put…

  2. Raja Bell out, Gordon Hayward to start for Jazz against Magic

    Dec 10, 2010, 2:22 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    Gordon Hayward has had really good seats for recent Jazz games. He has sat out he last two with the dreaded DNP-CD and in none of the last 10 games has he played five minutes. So, he’ll start tonight against the Magic. Raja Bell is out with a thigh injury and Jazz coach Jerry Sloan…

  3. Irony alert: Vladimir Radmanovic lectures Warriors about practice, effort

    Dec 10, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    nba_g_Radmanovic_576

    Vladimir Radmanovic — the man Phil Jackson called a “space cadet,” the man who coasted through games looking to jack up threes early in the shot clock — now wants the veteran leader role on the Warriors. Apparently. The Warriors have struggled lately (something not helped by Stephen Curry’s ankle being as limp as overcooked…

  4. Trick shots with Ty Lawson

    Dec 10, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Boston Celtics

    Off the rafters, one bounce, nothing but net… It’s almost time for the weekend, when you’ll head out and try your own trick shots in the driveway, eventually breaking a window or having the ball hit the sleeping dog on the porch. So rather than anger man’s best friend, why not let the Denver Nuggets…

  5. Ron Artest doesn’t really get the triangle offense — or how to be vegan

    Dec 10, 2010, 12:29 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    I’ve come to really enjoy Ron Artest because he is entirely driven by impulse. The way we all kind of wish we could be more of on some level. He may be more id driven than anyone else on the planet, but it just works for him. Even if he doesn’t understand all the rules.…

  6. Forbes: LeBron James most underpaid player in the NBA

    Dec 10, 2010, 11:51 AM EDT

    Image (1) ljames_points-thumb-250x140-15482-thumb-250x140-15483.jpg for post 3727

    This summer, while LeBron James was going about his decision and Decision, there was an interesting question floating around: What would James be worth on an open market? The NBA, with its max salaries, limits what guys like LeBron or Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant might make in a truly free market. Their value goes…

  7. Or maybe Rashad McCants isn’t going to China…

    Dec 10, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    Rashad McCants

    We passed along the report the other day that the agent for Rashad McCants told the Dallas Mavericks and Texas Legends of the D-League that McCants was leaving for the greener — and by that we mean more money — of China Except, well, you snooze you lose. Niubball — a great source for Chinese…

  8. Despite the turmoil, Chris Paul isn’t thinking about moving on

    Dec 10, 2010, 10:56 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v New Orleans Hornets

    The future of the New Orleans Hornets could not be cloudier right now. Might as well consult Ms. Cleo or Nostradamus’ quatrains for an answer as to where they will be in a couple years because their visions of the future are probably as clear as David Stern’s right now. Chris Paul could use this…

  9. Heat stealing offensive sets from the Lakers, Celtics

    Dec 10, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    During those dark, ugly games at the start of the season the Miami Heat offense seemed more like taking turns than some kind of actual offensive sets your high school coach would be proud of. Now that they are winning… there is still a lot of simple sets. Against Utah the other night there was…

  10. Video: Kevin Garnett with the game winner. Thanks Rondo.

    Dec 10, 2010, 8:12 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    It was an interesting play call. With the game on the line the Celtics got the ball to Rondo, ran Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett up to set screens, and when Rondo went right he didn’t try to drive the lane, he waited for the expected switch (everybody switches late in games) so that Jrue…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Why do people keep leaving Ray Allen open?

    Dec 10, 2010, 2:46 AM EDT

    Ray_Allen_stares

    What you missed while Jim Morrison was getting pardoned for a 31 year old indecent exposure charge… Celtics102, Sixers101: Probably the most entertaining ending minute of a game this season. It started with what looked like a dagger three from Ray Allen (followed by the staredown) with 1:04 left that put the Celtics ahead. How…

  12. Mark Cuban calls the Heat the best team in the league

    Dec 9, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) cuban-thumb-250x166-11958.jpg for post 2059

    The Dallas Mavericks have won 10 in a row. They have the second best record in the whole of the NBA, trailing only the Spurs — and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said recently the Mavericks were probably the best team in the league right now. Both Dallas’ offense and defense are in the top 10…

  13. Rajon Rondo to play, Shaq to sit for Celtics Thursday

    Dec 9, 2010, 7:14 PM EDT

    Oneal_peace

    Remember all that talk about resting Rajon Rondo’s sore hamstring and him taking some games off? Forget we ever said that. What we meant was Shaquille O’Neal was going to take a night off. That is what is happening Thursday against Philadelphia — Rondo is in and Shaq is out. Paul Pierce also is going…

  14. Report: Yahoo reports co-founder not interested in buying Hornets

    Dec 9, 2010, 6:01 PM EDT

    hornetssale

    Yesterday rumors surfaced of David Filo — New Orleans native and insanely rich founder of Yahoo — was interested in buying the team and keeping them in the Big Easy. Not so fast. Yahoo officially denies that he is buying the team, according to Tom Ziller of SB Nation. A company spokesman denied the report.…

  15. Byron Scott’s wife wants him to yell at officials more

    Dec 9, 2010, 5:43 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott is out of the Pat Riley, old-school mode in some ways — hard practices and he expects his guys to bust it on the court. Every time. He’s also willing to bend the ear of an official. And by bend I mean use language that would make a sailor blush.…

  16. Sherron Collins latest in growing trend of D-League assignments

    Dec 9, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    sherron_collins

    Sherron Collins is about to find out what cold really is. The Charlotte Bobcats have decided that their first-round pick out of Kansas — the All-American — needs some more seasoning and minutes so he is off the well-named Maine Red Claws of the D-League, as reported by Scott Schroeder of FanHouse. I love Maine,…

  17. Obama to meet with Lakers at community service event

    Dec 9, 2010, 4:13 PM EDT

    Image (1) obama-thumb-250x140-11530.jpg for post 1943

    The Lakers have been saying for some time that they didn’t want this trip to the White House — for the annual President shakes the hand of the NBA Champions meeting — to be another Rose Garden photo op. Everyone’s been there and done that, they wanted something different. They will get together and meet…

  18. Kings’ assistant coach Mario Elie arrested for DUI

    Dec 9, 2010, 3:52 PM EDT

    What is it about drinking and driving in Sacramento? Mario Elie, the one time three-point NBA specialist turned Sacramento Kings coach, was arrested for driving under the influence, according to News 10 in the city (KHTK 1140 AM broke the story). He was pulled over for a broken taillight but the officer smelled alcohol and…

  19. NBA to Louisville? Another small market, great idea. But the city is trying.

    I love Louisville. Birthplace of Muhammad Ali, best known for the cathedral that is Churchill Downs.  If you are there, go check out the Louisville Slugger Museum (you can’t miss it, big bat out in front), it is a fantastic trip through baseball history. And go eat at Jack Fry’s. But Louisville as home to…

  20. Jerry Sloan has Erik Spoelstra’s back

    Dec 9, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    CSKA Moscow v Miami Heat

    Just a couple weeks ago there was everything but a countdown clock for when Pat Riley was going to come down from on high and tell Erik Spoelstra to go spend more time with his family. Or, go get a wife and family to spend time with. Either way, get out. Now, six wins later…
