    The struggling Sacramento Kings have an idea of what they need to do. Right now, Tyreke Evans is the point guard for the Sacramento Kings. And he’s not a bad one. Certainly a score-first guy but someone averaging 5.2 assists per game, about 18.9 percent of his team’s baskets when he is on the floor…

  2. Quote of the day: Shaq is like laundry

    Nov 24, 2010, 9:06 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Shaquille O'Neal

    “Shaq is like paradise, man. You ever wash your sheets and then go outside and hang them out, and the sun dries them? You ever smell the sheets? That’s what Shaq is, Shaq is like.” —Kevin Garnett, talking about what it’s like to play with Shaquille O’Neal, via the Boston Herald.

    Couple of very nice days for Indiana, what with beating the heat then getting the win on the second night of a back-to-back over Cleveland. And you know things are going your way when shots like this are falling. Right Brandon Rush?

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Think Doug Collins is glad he came back to coaching now?

    Nov 24, 2010, 3:15 AM EDT

    John Wall, Evan Turner

    What you missed while trying to snap up McDonald’s Happy Meals before they all get banned… Kobe being Kobe was part of the Lakers beating the Bulls in our Game of the Night. Wizards 116, Sixers 114 (OT): If Doug Collins were to call up some executives at TNT to see if they would take…

  5. Game of the night: Where you can’t throw anything new at Kobe

    Nov 24, 2010, 2:33 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Luol Deng

    Kobe has seen it before. On much bigger stage. He knows how a Tom Thibodeau team is going to defend him. Whenever and wherever he got the ball Tuesday night he patiently waited to see where the double would come from, then he would try to pass to the cutter. Or he kicks it to…

  6. Nets Terrence Williams suspended two games by team

    Terrence Williams, welcome to Avery Johnson’s doghouse. Williams has been suspended for two games — Tuesday night’s win over Atlanta and an upcoming trip to Boston — for “repeated violations of team policy.” Johnson was more direct with ESPNNewYork. “It’s something we’ve dealt with for the past two or three weeks,” Johnson said. “I don’t…

  7. Elton Brand ejected after one ugly flagrant two, fine coming

    Elton Brand is going to be writing a check to the league soon. In the fourth quarter of the Sixers overtime loss to the Wizards (which never should have gone to overtime, but check out Baseline to Baseline later for that story), JaVale McGee had a wide open dunk and once he was in the…

  8. New Warriors owners talking openly about San Francisco, Oakland may not like that

    Nov 23, 2010, 8:33 PM EDT

    san-francisco-skyline-at-night

    The new owners of the Golden State Warriors have not been subtle about where they left their heart — they have talked openly about loving San Francisco. They’ve started flirting with The City. As Arena Digest points out, the first big media event that Peter Guber and Joseph Lacob held was in a San Francisco…

  9. Maybe it’s a little too early to freak out about a lockout

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:33 PM EDT

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    Welcome to the world of my contradictions. Put up your feet, make yourself at home. On one hand, I am fully convinced there will be an NBA lockout come next July 1. Talk to both sides informally and that feels like the only possible outcome. But I think that Darren Rovell at CNBC is right…

  10. John Wall game-time decision to get back on court tonight

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:05 PM EDT

    Wall_dunk

    UPDATE 6:06 pm: In his pregame comments, Wizards coach Flip Saunders said that Wall would be a game-time decision, to be made after he warmed up. If Wall does play, he will come off the bench, Saunders said. 11: 28 am: For the last week, John Wall has ceded the “ridiculous rookie highlight of the…

  11. Vince Carter’s MRI negative, game time decision Wednesday against Heat

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Vince Carter, Josh Childress, Garret Siler, Jared Dudley

    It didn’t look good when it happened. It didn’t sound good when Vince Carter described it as a “sharp pain” in his knee. But it turned out to be not that bad — an MRI of Vince Carter’s knee showed no structural damage and he is will be a game-time decision in Wednesday’s showdown with…

  12. Kobe Bryant is wearing Grinch shoes on Christmas. Seriously.

    kobe-christmas-top

    Kobe Bryant is going Grinch for Christmas. Those shoes burning a hole in your retina to the right are the Grinch edition of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI (via The Basketball Jones), Kobe’s latest signature shoe. Based on the iconic Dr. Seuss character that’s as cuddly as a cactus and as charming as an eel,…

  13. LeBron James’s plan to fix the Heat: “We need to have more fun”

    Nov 23, 2010, 3:35 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    LeBron James came to South Beach to find his pure love for the game again, to recreate the best times of his life. It was really the best explanation of all when the theories flew around about why he chose to take his talents to South Beach — the time James most enjoyed the game…

  14. Thunder give Nick Collison multi-year contract extension

    Nov 23, 2010, 3:11 PM EDT

    collison

    The Oklahoma City Thunder believe in the core. They want to win with this group. Nick Collison is part of this group, so he has agreed to a contract extension with the team, the team announced. “Nick Collison has shown an unwavering commitment to our organization through his willingness to accept various roles and his…

  15. Could Pat Riley really step in for Erik Spoelstra? Phil Jackson thinks so.

    Nov 23, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    Image (1) spoelstra-thumb-250x140-12988-thumb-250x140-12989.jpg for post 4244

    Stan Van Gundy had the Miami Heat and their big stars Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O’Neal off to a decent but behind expectations start of 11-10 when Pat Riley canned him and stepped in to take over as coach. They won a ring. This season’s Miami Heat are off to a decent but behind expectations…

  16. Philadelphia Spectrum goes under the wrecking ball

    Nov 23, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    Moses Malone and Julius Erving watch the game

    It was where Dr. J soared, where Charles Barkley banged and balled, where the fans were close and let the players know it. From both teams. It’s where the Philadelphia Flyers pummeled everyone they could, where more concerts took place than can be remembered. And now, the Philadelphia Spectrum is no more. Today a wrecking…

  17. Kobe Bryant calls Michael Jackson his mentor

    Nov 23, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Kobe Bryant is a complex man. We like to paint our athletes into easy to define boxes — Kobe learned his drive by watching Michael Jordan — that are not always accurate fit. They often are not with Kobe. For example, he told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo he learned his drive by his friendship with…

  18. Report: Jerry Stackhouse ends up man on the outside in Miami

    Nov 23, 2010, 12:02 PM EDT

    Stackhouse_heat

    The Miami Heat needed to cut somebody loose to bring in Erick Dampier — and they need to bring in Dampier — the only question was who? Jerry Stackhouse. That according to a tweet from Chris Broussard at ESPN (something other sources have confirmed now). It also makes sense, even though other names (Dexter Pittman…

  19. Larry Drew thinks Hawks may be more into partying than playing

    Nov 23, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    The Boston Celtics came into Atlanta on the second night of a back-to-back and played with a Hoover Dam’s worth of more electricity and energy than their hosts. The Celtics were pissed about losses, the Hawks were… We don’t know. Hawks coach Larry Drew doesn’t know. But in some of the most direct post-game comments…

  20. Jarrett Jack says look at Miami before you think Chris Paul is New York bound

    CPaul_Heat

    While the entire league is enjoying a bit of schadenfreude at the Miami Heat’s expense Tuesday morning, Jarrett Jack — the newest member of the Hornets — was warning that the slow start in South Beach could be viewed as a cautionary tale by players. After the Miami Heat formed Voltron this summer, there was…
