  1. Quote of the Night: Monty Williams on Blake Griffin

    Nov 22, 2010, 10:13 PM EDT

    Griffin Dunk

    “We treat [Blake Griffin] like an All-Star. He can have those kinds of games all the time. We don’t treat him any differently than we would treat Amar’e Stoudemire. Those guys, you have to guard with team defense instead of one guy. He’s talented and explosive. The future’s bright here in L.A.” – Hornets coach…

  2. Players Association Exec Hunter “99 percent sure” there will be lockout

    Nov 22, 2010, 9:16 PM EDT

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    Right now it’s all posturing — more for the general public than each other — but it still sounds ominous. The latest in the public back-and-forth over a new NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement is what Billy Hunter, executive director of the NBA Players Association (the players union) told the Associated Press. He said he was…

  3. With Haslem out, will LeBron see more time at the four?

    Nov 22, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    LeBron Post

    Udonis Haslem going down with a torn foot ligament is very bad for the Miami Heat means that the Miami Heat are going to have to make some tough calls regarding their rotation in the coming weeks. Allow me to offer this thought: instead of giving Haslem’s minutes to Juwan Howard, Jamaal Magloire, or increasing…

  4. Jamal Crawford is in a contract year and that’s a bad thing.

    Nov 22, 2010, 7:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Often, guys have record years when they are playing for a new contract (or at least they are more aggressive and take more shots, so their point total goes up). It is having the opposite impact on Jamal Crawford. Cawford this season has not been the same guy who won the Sixth Man of the…

  5. Heat likely to sign Erick Dampier while Haslem will have surgery on foot

    Erick Dampier

    Just as the news becomes official that Udonis Haslem will have foot surgery and be out for months, word of his replacement comes in. The Heat are very close to signing Erick Dampier to a contract, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. Dampier had worked out for the Heat this summer and hinted that is…

    NBA Draft Basketball

    Toronto forward Ed Davis, who was the 13th overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft, has been assigned to the Erie Bayhawks of the D-League for what the Raptors are calling a “short-term rehabilitation and conditioning stint.” A knee injury has prevented the UNC product from making his NBA debut.

    Nov 22, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    John Wall Practice Dance

    According to Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner, Wizards rookie guard John Wall practiced today with the team, but coach Flip Saunders says he wants to “see how his foot reacts to practice” before playing him against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday. Wall is currently averaging an extremely impressive 18.1 points, 9.8 assists, and 3.3…

  8. Birdman flies back into Nuggets lineup Monday

    CAnderson_necktat

    Have the color adjusted on your sets because things are going to go much brighter when the Denver Nuggets travel to Golden State tonight. Chris Anderson is back, recovered from knee surgery. The Birdman. He of the insane neck tattoo and the high flying blocks. Really, it’s the second part of that can dramatically help…

  9. Quote of the Day: Ron Artest to ask Terrell Owens about being crazy

    Nov 22, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT

    Terell Owens Trophy

    According to Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register, Ron Artest is going to get some sage advice about a possible post-basketball adventure into the NFL from none other than Terrell Owens of the Cincinnati Bengals. According to Artest, the controversial wide receiver is going to help Artest sort out, in the Laker forward’s own…

    It’s a holiday week, it’s not like you are actually getting anything done at the office today anyway. So in the vein of entertaining distractions, we bring you the Fast Don’t Lie video remix with Slim Chin and his lady pyramid. Which he got because he is fast, so I hear. Dwight Howard and D-Rose…

  11. It’s Monday, time for Isiah Thomas to put his foot in his mouth

    Isiah Thomas is living proof of the power of cognitive dissonance. The latest in a long line of examples comes from an interview with the Chicago Sun Times and discussion of the sexual harassment charges leveled against him and Madison Square Garden while he was running the Knicks. The one paragraph rundown is Anucha Browne…

  12. Wizards sign Alonzo Gee

    Nov 22, 2010, 2:58 PM EDT

    Wizards Nuggets Basketball

    Alonzo Gee had cult-figure popularity with the Wizards last season, one of the bright spots fans tried to latch onto in an otherwise dismal year. Gee came on with a 10-day contract then worked his way all the way up to being a starter. Then when his deal was up he bolted for the Spurs…

  13. Why Turkey? Apparently Allen Iverson needed the money.

    Nov 22, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    iverson-turkey

    The sad sideshow that Allen Iverson has become came into our living rooms Sunday, with NBA TV broadcasting Iverson’s most recent game with the Besiktas Cola Turka Black Eagles. The result was limited minutes with and two points. The whole thing leaves you wondering why. Why he couldn’t fit in with an NBA team? Why…

  14. Toddler dies after fall from luxury suites after Lakers game

    UPDATE 2:06 pm: The parents of the two-year-old boy had been taking pictures of him, then were looking at the digital pictures and lost track of the boy for a second when he crawled over the railing and fell 50 feet to his death, according to the Los Angeles Police department, as told to the…

  15. 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…

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

    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…

  17. 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,…

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

    Nov 22, 2010, 10:11 AM EDT

    Image (1) canthony_billups-thumb-250x140-18636.jpg for post 3784

    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…

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

    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…

  20. 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.…
