    Dec 11, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Could it be for all the talk, all the rumors, and all the clamoring that Carmelo Anthony simply winds up where he is now for the long-term? Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that Carmelo Anthony has told the Nuggets he’ll “think about” signing the extension they’re offering which would keep him in Denver in the…

  2. O.J. Mayo’s totally cool with Lionel Hollins

    Dec 11, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Orlando Magic

    O.J. Mayo is in a slump. O.J. Mayo is no longer a starter. O.J. Mayo is on the trade block. And O.J. Mayo says he’s totally cool with Lionel Hollins about all this. Mayo started off the year with a shooting slump, and Hollins decided to move him to the bench for when his scoring…

  3. Knicks, Rockets talking swap for Anthony Randolph, first-rounder

    Dec 11, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Milwaukee Bucks

    So the Knicks could be getting back their first round pick which they traded to Houston for Tracy McGrady in order to get more cap space to try and sign LeBron James/Dwyane Wade/Chris Bosh. Instead they signed Amar’e Stoudemire and traded David Lee to Golden State (sign-and-trade) for Anthony Randolph, Ronny Turiaf, and Kelenna Azubuike.…

  4. Not so much with the Mike Miller and the returning by Christmas

    Dec 11, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    Mike Miller had hopes of returning by Christmas in order to try and help the Heat with the Lakers. Even with the Heat playing better, there’s a significant need for Miller to get back on the floor. He’s a more reliable shooter, ball-handler, and defender than James Jones or Eddie House, and when the Heat…

  5. Who’s laughing at Erik Spoelstra now?

    Dec 11, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Miami Heat

    Three weeks ago we were eating turkey, watching the Lions lose (again), and making up our own favorite “Sure, Pat Riley isn’t taking over this team and (fill in the blank)” joke. The Heat were a mini-disaster and there were rampant rumors that his job was on the line. The entire time Spoelstra stayed calm…

  6. MRI negative for Tyreke Evans’ foot, Kings still can’t be happy

    Dec 11, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Tyreke Evans was scheduled for an MRI Friday, and the fear being whispered about was the dreaded “stress fracture.” A tiny crack in the bone is extremely painful, hard to heal, and could keep him out for months. Kings fans waited with baited breath to find out if their franchise player was done for a…

  7. Chris Kaman out three weeks with sprained ankle. Welcome to the Clippers world.

    Dec 11, 2010, 9:01 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    Chris Kaman — you know, that tall guy who is supposed to be playing next to Blake Griffin — will be out the next three weeks at least, the team announced. He has an “aggravated bone bruise and deltoid ligament sprain of his left ankle.” Which means his ankle really, really hurts right now. This…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: George Karl has won some games

  9. George Karl joins the 1,000-win club

    Dec 10, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    The last time George Karl coached a team with a losing record, Notre Dame was the undefeated national champions, the Los Angeles Dodgers won the World Series and the Democrats thought it was a good idea to nominate Michael Dukakis for president of the United States. Karl has coached a long time and won in…

  10. Gary Chouest wants to keep Hornets in New Orleans, so long as he doesn’t have to buy team

    Dec 10, 2010, 10:13 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    Gary Chouest was oh, so close to buying the New Orleans Hornets. He already had 25 percent and was going to buy out the rest from George Shinn. Then he got a better look at the $83 million in debt they had, or his business supplying vessels to the off-shore gulf oil industry took a…

  11. Canada’s love/hate relationship with the Heat

    Dec 10, 2010, 9:16 PM EDT

    Image (1) bosh-heat-thumb-250x140-17979.jpg for post 3618

    Chris Bosh is not loved in Toronto. At all. He left the Toronto Raptors cold and the feelings north of the border match it. I mean, check this out. It’s not quite in the “LeBron is not loved in Cleveland” category of outright hated, but that is just because Canadians are too nice. Canadians love…

  12. Naismith original rules of basketball sell for $4.3 million

    Dec 10, 2010, 8:12 PM EDT

    Naismith4[1]

    James Naismith needed a new indoor game for the children under his charge at a Massachusetts YMCA. He came up with a sport where a ball had to be thrown into peach baskets suspended 10 feet in the air. For the sport, he came up with just 13 rules. No, one of them was not…

    Portland’s Greg Oden and Miami’s Udonis Haslem are expected to be out for the rest of the regular season due to injuries. That would be Haslem’s foot and Oden’s recurring knee injury. Friday afternoon, the league granted the two teams disabled players exceptions, which allows them to fill up to half of those salary spots…

  14. Eight guys who might be traded come December 15

    Dec 10, 2010, 5:13 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    Next Wednesday, Dec. 15, the NBA trading landscape gets interesting. That’s the day that guys signed to free agent contracts this summer become eligible for trades. So those guys your team signed this summer that seemed smart then but look like a disaster now can be shipped out — if you can find a taker.…

  15. When billionaires joke around: Mark Cuban calls Mikhail Prokhorov a “p***y”

    Dec 10, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Celebrity Game Presented By Final Fantasy XIII

    UPDATE 4:30 pm: As we kind of expected, this seems to be a joke between the two via the media. Stefan Bondy of the Daily News, who wrote the original story, got a text from Prokhorov in response to the original comment: “I think Mark has it wrong. I don’t like cats.” Other media there…

  16. Kobe likes Derrick Rose but he’s not passing any torches

    Dec 10, 2010, 4:26 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose

    Does anyone actually think Kobe will willingly pass on the torch to the next generation? That’s not how he thinks, how he works. You want to be the lion in the pride, come and get it. He’s giving away nothing. So no shock after Bryant and the Lakers beat the Bulls in Los Angeles last…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
