  1. Poll: What team helped itself the most with trades?

    Feb 25, 2011, 9:42 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    For weeks leading up, everyone we talked to was telling us it was going to be a quiet trade deadline. The new CBA coming, the bottleneck caused by the Carmelo Anthony deal, there were a bunch of reasons nothing much was going to happen. Then BOOM! With the force of a Blake Griffin dunk the…

    Rajon Rondo

    Boston struggled to put up points Thursday night against Denver, but Rondo did his best to make it easy for his teammates. He ha 8 assists on the night, but none better than this behind-the-back set up for Glen Davis.

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: When you talk contenders, Chicago wants to be mentioned

    Feb 25, 2011, 4:19 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    What you missed while out doing some naked joyriding… Bulls 93, Heat 89: We won’t know until May, really, if the Chicago Bulls are contenders. If they can hang with Miami and Boston for seven games. The defense definitely can, but the ball sticks too much on offense, leaving Derrick Rose to create one-on-three (or…

  4. Chris Bosh thinks Derrick Rose should be MVP

    Feb 25, 2011, 1:33 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Chris Bosh better be careful or he is going to end up in LeBron James’ little black revenge book. Before the Heat took on the Bulls — and lost in large part due to Derrick Rose — Chris Bosh was asked by Bulls.com what he thought of the chances of Derrick Rose taking the MVP…

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    In the last few days, nearly 10 percent of the players in the NBA got traded. Think about that. Apparently the NBA GMs have been watching their baseball counterparts too much. We won’t really know how all this will shake out for a few months, but what follows is our first impressions. And grades. We…

  6. Boston’s Danny Ainge learned from history, tries to avoid repeating it

    Feb 24, 2011, 7:50 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    When the Boston Celtics powerhouse teams of the ‘80s wound down, the wheels came off that franchise. There were a lot of factors; Len Bias was a big one. Current Celtics GM Danny Ainge — a member of those teams — has said the Celtics made a mistake trying to ride the wave all the…

  7. Rasheed Wallace is not coming back to the Celtics. Stop asking.

    With the confusing series of Boston moves today that turned their front line from one of the league’s best to a question mark, a lot of people in Boston are asking what Danny Ainge has up his sleeve. They are asking: What about Rasheed Wallace? He walked away after the NBA finals Game 7 last…

  8. Charlotte sends Gerald Wallace to Portland for picks, savings

    Feb 24, 2011, 6:34 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    Gerald Wallace for Joel Przybilla, Dante Cunningham, Sean Marks, and two future first round picks. If we reduce the trade between the Charlotte Bobcats and Portland Trailblazers to that simple form, both teams did well for themselves. The playoff team acquired a talented piece to complement their already existing core, and the rebuilding club cleared…

  9. Sacramento Kings to Anaheim more than rumors; fans push back

    Feb 24, 2011, 6:02 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Things are dire in Sacramento. Mayor Kevin Johnson (yes, that Kevin Johnson) said yesterday that the talk about the Kings moving to Anaheim was more than just rumors. Then today we learn that the Kings owners asked for, and likely will be granted (by a vote of the other owners), an extension past the March…

  10. Deron Williams says signing extension with Nets depends on next year

    Feb 24, 2011, 5:21 PM EST

    Deron Williams, Avery Johnson, Billy King

    Deron Williams wants everyone to know he’s not angry about being traded to the Nets. In fact, the idea of being a franchise cornerstone is kind of growing on him. That doesn’t mean he’s signing an extension and staying, either. Mikhail Prokhorov, Billy King — you guys are on the clock. Build now. Improve this…

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    There are more rumors swirling around the NBA today then there were groupies swirling around All-Star Game parties last weekend in Los Angeles.

    Feb 24, 2011, 3:48 PM EST

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Boston has made a deadline deal that seems to weaken their defense as they head in the playoffs — and just made the Oklahoma City Thunder a much bigger threat in the West. Boston has traded Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder for forward Jeff Green and center Nenad Krstic, as…

  14. Cavaliers’ move for the future could easily backfire

    Feb 24, 2011, 2:31 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Cleveland Cavaliers will have another lottery pick with which to establish a young core for the future, but they had better hope that in their trade deadline deal — which netted the Clippers’ Baron Davis and the aforementioned pick for Mo Williams — the only price they pay is measured in salary committed and…

  15. Dwight Howard rips Magic after ugly loss to Kings

    Feb 24, 2011, 12:18 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    I’m not sure what the low point of the season will be for the Orlando Magic will be, this may be like the LOST island where every time something impossible happens you think it can’t get crazier. Then you’re proven wrong. And Hurley becomes the voice of reason. But the Wednesday night Magic loss to…

  17. John Wall is one frustrated Wizard

    Feb 24, 2011, 10:28 AM EST

    Jrue Holiday, John Wall

    “Until we find five guys that really want to fight, compete and care the whole time, it’s really going to be tough.” That was John Wall’s post-game comment after the Wizards got smoked by the Sixers Wednesday night. He’s frustrated. Good. He should be frustrated. If he were comfortable losing that would be a bigger…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Spurs remain kings of end game execution

    Feb 24, 2011, 10:02 AM EST

    gary neal

    Carmelo Anthony’s debut as a Knick was our game of the night. Spurs 109, Thunder 105: Fantastic effort by the Thunder on the second night of a back-to-back on the road, but it’s the little things in these games. Like Gary Neal stepping back to take a three in transition that was a bad decision…

  19. Video: Avery Johnson, Billy King talk getting Deron Williams

    Feb 24, 2011, 9:04 AM EST

    Mavericks Johnson Fired  Basketball

    Nets coach Avery Johnson is excited. It’s a little tough to tell because he actually always talks like that, but he is. He should be, as should GM Billy King. They now have one of the games elite point guards in an increasingly guard-driven league. They have a cornerstone to start building around. But rather…
