  1. What is going on with Ron Artest?

    Dec 6, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Twice last week, when the Lakers needed a bucket at the end of the game, the ball ended up in the hands of Ron Artest. And he missed. It seemed fitting, because Artest has not seemed himself — however you wish to define that — lately.  This was the guy was the Lakers MVP of…

  2. Video to start your week — Top 10 Dunks of November

    Dec 6, 2010, 8:13 AM EDT

    Is there a better way to start your week than that cup of coffee and videos of Andre Iguodala, Blake Griffin and Russell Westbrook making posters? No, of course there isn’t. We’ll, unless you’ve got a nice bagel to go with it. Either way, enjoy.

  3. Baseline to Baseline Weekend Edition: Knicks Gone Wild

    Dec 6, 2010, 3:45 AM EDT

    What you missed this weekend while worrying that your extra virgin olive oil isn’t such a virgin… Celtics 104 Bulls 92 (Friday): I know the Bulls thought they were an elite team. The Celtics, however, are currently the only Eastern team (and maybe the only NBA team) at that level right now. If we’re looking…

  4. Nate McMillan admits he may not be reaching Blazers, a step on the road to unemployment

    Dec 5, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Portland Trail Blazers - Game 6

    Sunday night the Blazers are getting healthy at the expense of the Los Angeles Clippers, which is a good team to get healthy against. It will snap a six-game losing streak that has seen some ugly play out a Blazers team many thought would rebound this season. There are injury issues in Portland — Gregg…

  5. Eddy Curry healthy enough to play, D’Antoni smart enough not to

    Dec 5, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    The New York Knicks could use some more scoring and defensive presence in the paint — Ronny Turiaf has been in and out of the lineup with injuries, and Timofey Mozgov is still learning how to do more than just pick up fouls in the NBA. Well, there is Eddy Curry…. He is healthy enough…

  6. Wolves Anthony Tolliver out for “a while” with sprained knee

    Dec 5, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Tolliver_wolves

    Anthony Tolliver — the guy better known as “why are they playing him and not Kevin Love more?” — will be out for “a while” with a sprained right knee, the team announced. He will get another evaluation on Monday that may give us a better timeline for his return. He sprained it Friday night…

  7. League takeover of Hornets to come by Wednesday

    Dec 5, 2010, 4:25 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    It comes down to this: owner George Shinn is out of money he will spend to run the New Orleans Hornets and he can’t find a buyer. The league is going to step in and step in soon — both ESPN and Sports Illustrated are reporting the league could take over operations of the team…

  8. Report: Sixers are shopping Andre Iguodala

    Dec 5, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers

    Andre Iguodala is prepared for it. Now it appears to be happening. Slowly. The Ohio Morning Journal reports that the Sixers are shopping the wingman around. That would not be a shock to anyone, but the Sixers have been publically mum on the idea (or said it’s not happening), especially as they have won three…

  9. Rajon Rondo’s rare feat: averaging more assists than points

    Dec 5, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo sat out today against the New Jersey Nets, his hamstring still sore and the team wanting to play it safe. Why safe? Because Rondo is having a historic season. So far, Rondo is averaging 14.1 assists and 11.4 points per game, orchestrating a more balanced Celtics attack. In a great note at the…

  10. Report: NBA taps NHL executive to run Hornets

    Dec 5, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    new-orleans-hornets logo

    We told you yesterday that the sale of the New Orleans Hornets fell through — in part possibly because of the impending lockout — which has left the NBA with the unenviable task of taking over running the team until a new owner can be found. The takeover is apparently going to happen soon —…

  11. LeBron James, Daniel Gibson still BFFs, or something

    Dec 5, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    After the Heat were done wiping the floor with the Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday night, some things were said. Daniel Gibson used to be tight with LeBron James but he said some things afterwards that made it sound like they wouldn’t be sharing any text messages about the latest episode of Glee, or whatever it is…

  12. Grizzlies waive Acie Law

    Dec 5, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Acie Law Ricardo Marsh

    Acie Law was a lottery pick, No. 11 overall, a smart and crafty player coming out of Texas A&M that seemed well suited to running an NBA team from the point. Not the most explosive guy, but he showed an ability to get to the rim and then kick out to open teammates. It hasn’t…

  13. If you’re going to foul Andre Iguodala, do it right

    Dec 5, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala is one of the league’s better finishers on the break. With that in mind, note to Gerald Wallace — if you’re going to foul him to prevent the dunk, wrap him up early. Because if you just kind of push Iguodala once he’s in the air you’re going to end up on a…

  14. Rumors surfacing that Iverson wants out of Turkey. He denies it.

    iverson-turkey

    UPDATE 10:00 pm: Iverson on his twitter account denies these rumors, saying he is enjoying the experience and building good chemistry with his teammates. What else is he going to say? You can choose to believe whatever you wish here, the “answer” will come with his actions soon enough. 9:30 pm: What was the under/over…

  15. Heat grants 8-year-old boy belated birthday wish

    Dec 4, 2010, 7:46 PM EDT

    LeBron James,  Dwayne Wade, Joel Anthony, Chris Bosh, Carlos Arroyo

    Christian Lambert is one happy boy tonight. Lambert for his eighth birthday gift didn’t want the Lego Star Wars for Wii (which is crazy, I want that) — he wanted to go see the Miami Heat play. So his parents splurged and bought him tickets to go see the Heat take on the Orlando Magic…

  16. Antoine Walker clears background check, will shimmy into D-League Tuesday

    Dec 4, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat  - Game 4

    Antoine Walker’s NBA comeback via the D-League — at least that’s the plan, anyway — has become a reality as he has cleared the league’s background check. That means he will go on waivers and be picked up by the 0-4 Idaho Stampede in the next 72 hours, as reported by Scott Schroeder at FanHouse.…

  17. Nuggets looking to lock up Karl for 3-year extension

    Dec 4, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    If you want proof of how you need not commit to overreactions based on a few years of play and to try and weather the storms of violent change that regularly sweep through the NBA, look no further than George Karl. In 2007-2008, there was a very real movement to fire George Karl. The team…

  18. Flu bug leaves Magic looking sick

    Dec 4, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    Just like the invading aliens in H.G. Wells “War of the Worlds,” nothing has been able to stop the Orlando Magic — except a flu bug. Tonight, while the Magic are in Milwaukee taking on the Bucks, Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson, JJ Redick and Mickael Pietrus will all be back in Orlando trying to recover…

  19. Kevin Garnett gets all chatty after running the Bulls out

    Dec 4, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Had the Bulls beaten the Celtics last night, this post would not be happening. Kevin Garnett personifies almost all the things we want our athletes to be and almost none of the things we want our fellow citizens in every day life and public figures to be. What I mean is that Garnett’s a good…

  20. We sure hope the Blazers have hit rock bottom

    Dec 4, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Portland Trail Blazers

    You know, when you think about it “Hey, it could always be worse” is kind of a cruel thing to say to someone.  Because if things go badly enough to justify you saying that to them? They likely haven’t just started going bad, or had one bad thing happen. Most bad things tend to happen…
