  1. Celtics Jermaine O’Neal had minor “procedure” on his knee during season

    Nov 8, 2010, 8:18 AM EDT

    JOneal_rebound

    Jermaine O’Neal played 21 minutes for the Celtics in their win over the Thunder. He pulled down nine boards but shot just 1-for-5. He has not moved well this season and admitted to Sherrod Blakely of Comcast Sports New England that he had a “minor procedure” done on his sore left knee. During the season.…

  2. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Lazy Sunday

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:55 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    What you missed while you were burning Wayne Rooney in effigy…. Lakers 121 Blazers 96: I was going to give you a great big recap of this game. I was going to do slide shows and video and show the intricacies of this matchup. I was going to give you something really enjoyable to read.…

  3. Aaron Brooks says he is out four to six weeks

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:15 AM EDT

    ABrooks_layup

    Aaron Brooks sprained his ankle Saturday night against the San Antonio Spurs and had to sit out Sunday when the Rockets picked up their first win of the season against the Timberwolves. He’s going to be out a while longer. Brooks himself told Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle (via twitter) he will be out…

  4. Erick Dampier not nearly as much of a Rocket as we may have previously thought

    Nov 7, 2010, 8:10 PM EDT

    dampier

    There was talk, and then there was more talk, and it looked very much like Erick Dampier was going to be a Rocket. Even Jermaine Taylor was getting shoved out the door in a way that suggested he had his spot reserved for someone else. Certainly looks like the Rockets need some more size with…

  5. The tasty underside of the Rockets’ defense so far

    Nov 7, 2010, 7:09 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Houston Rockets

    The Houston Rockets are 0-5, which is just bizarre. They’ve fought hard against good teams and been in positions to win, only to find new and inventive ways to lose. This is a team that many consider one of the most fun teams to watch, and a legitimate playoff contender. So what in Olajuwon’s name…

  6. Rumors continue but Warriors not likely to move Monta Ellis

    Nov 7, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Golden State Warriors

    Remember how Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry were not going to be able to play well together and Ellis had to be traded? Another urban myth, right up there with Mr. Rogers was a Navy Seal. Ellis is having a career year — 28.6 points per game, at a shooting percentage 60 points higher than…

  7. Deron Williams decides to go ahead and kill the Clips on his schedule

    Nov 7, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/_rXD2AGob0c?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    The Clippers battled last night. They really did. Without Baron Davis (fatness), without Blake Griffin (fouled out), without Eric Gordon (injury), they still managed to tie the Jazz with 7 seconds to go in double overtime. Then, of course, Deron Williams decided he’d played enough minutes and would like to go home. Williams took the…

  8. Stan Van Gundy has a hard position on a wet spot

    Nov 7, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    I imagine having Stan Van Gundy yell a you must be one of the most uncomfortable situations you can find yourself in. The high-pitched, hoarse wail, the effusive finger-pointing, the incredulous glare, all of it must be pretty unpleasant to deal with after a long night. To that end, let’s hope the operations crew at…

  9. Weird but true: Murder suspect arrested in VIP section during Bobcats-Magic game

    Nov 7, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    twc

    There are a bunch of ways to take this one. Scary, funny, bizarre, and the story is all three. So we’re going to try and tread those three lines, carefully. Let’s say you’re a murder suspect. In fact, you’re on video in a confrontation with a man who was shot twice in the back in…

  10. LeBron James: Still not making friends

    Nov 7, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James is already a polarizing figure. He was becoming one prior to “The Decision,” and then his little TV special pushed things to a different stratosphere. But it’s not just those big events, or his Game 5 meltdown, or not shaking hands with the Magic after the Cavs’ 2009 elimination, or Kobe Bryant fans’…

  11. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade alley-oop for fun and games

    Nov 7, 2010, 12:10 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/vEPUpl36J6Q?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Going to see a lot of this for the next, oh, five or six years. When you have multiple all-world athletes on your team, things like this are going to happen. Behold! The totally unnecessary but awesome looking alley-oop! Yeah, that’s pretty ridiculous. It’s also fairly indicative of the Heat and their attitude. Magic’s Showtime…

  12. Stephen Jackson fined $50,000 for verbal abuse of an official

    Nov 6, 2010, 7:13 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Orlando Magic

    The NBA announced it has fined Stephen Jackson $50,000 for verbal abuse of game officials during the Bobcats loss to the Pistons Friday night. And now, a short selection of what we believe Jackson said, the same vein of Kevin Garnett’s explanation of what he said to Charlie Villanueva, inspired by Twitter: “Mr. Official, are…

  13. Rajon Rondo has plantar fasciitis. That’s bad.

    Nov 6, 2010, 4:40 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    There are worse words to hear regarding your starting All-Star point guard. “Torn ACL.” “Fractured tibia.” “Turned into Baron Davis.” But right up there is “plantar fasciitis,”  a foot condition that is a remarkably troublesome problem for NBA players. The condition is both sincerely painful to the point of distraction, yet not debilitating to keep…

  14. John Kuester’s safe! Yeah, we’re as surprised as you.

    Nov 6, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    kuesterthumbsup

    So the Pistons won last night, which is a big deal for them, since it’s their first. I remember my first time. Wait, that’s not what we’re talking about. Anyway, they got off the early season snide against the Bobcats (of course) last night. The problem is they’re still 1 and 5 and have had…

  15. Blazers sign Sean Marks, so he’ll probably be injured soon

    Nov 6, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    marks

    Greg Oden. Joel Przybilla. Jeff Pendergraph. Fabricio Oberto. The list of Portland bigs on the shelf just gets bigger by the day. And now, they’ll add another player and hope he doesn’t go down inside of a month. CBSSports.com reports that the Blazers will sign Sean Marks to a non-guaranteed contract for the veteran minimum…

  16. Cuttino Mobley wants back in the act

    Nov 6, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    mobley

    When Cuttino Mobley was traded to the Knicks two years ago, a heart irregularity was discovered to have worsened in his physical, forcing doctors to tell him he’d never play again. Now, Mobley is out to show that isn’t the case after two years away from the game. Yahoo! Sports reports that Mobley is trying…

  17. Report: Baron Davis is on the block. Good luck with that.

    Nov 6, 2010, 10:07 AM EDT

    boomdizzle

    What’s the easiest way to move a declining point guard with three years and $41.65 million remaining on his contract who’s out with a knee injury? Talk about him publicly as being out of shape to the point of not playing him! That’s how! Or at least, that’s the Clipper way. Yahoo! Sports reports that…

  18. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Friday night is for nail biters, apparently

    Nov 6, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pierce_Garnett_highfive

    What you missed installing your all-in-one toilet paper roll holder and iPod Dock… There are more notes from the Hornets 96-93 win over the Heat here. Celtics 110, Bulls 105 (OT): I could have sworn I saw Ray Allen dunk in the overtime. I must be hallucinating. Give the Bulls credit, down 16 in the…

  19. Game of the Night: Where CP3 was better than the Big Three

    CPaul_Heat

    Most Saturdays you’re not going to get a Game of the Night, because that could make us work on a Friday night rather than enjoy another Guinness. But there were so many notes on my plate from the Hornets beating the Heat that it cried out for the space. On that note, I put down…

  20. Kings’ Antoine Wright arrested for DUI

    Nov 5, 2010, 11:56 PM EDT

    AWright_Kings

    There seems to be something about guys in cars with the Sacramento Kings. Former coach Eric Musselman got a DIU, as did minority owner George Maloof. Then there was Tyreke Evans, who got cited and suspended for a game after a 100 mph cruise through the city. Now Antoine Wright has joined group, the reserve…
