  1. 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.…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. The NBA may buy the Hornets. Yes, the situation is that bad.

    Dec 4, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    hornetssale

    Okay, so a lot’s happened in the last 24 hours (most of which actually happened last week, but we’ll get to that) with the ownership situation in New Orleans. The world is much different than it was two days ago. In short, the NBA is closing in on the purchase of the New Orleans Hornets…

  7. So… what’s going on with Chris Paul and the Hornets?

    Dec 4, 2010, 9:48 AM EDT

    cp3struggle

    Let us hearken back to those alabaster days when things were simpler, times were happier. When Chris Paul and the Hornets were 8-0, and by golly, CP3 looked like the MVP. A playoff team? No, the question was if New Orleans would have homecourt in the first round! Can they topple the Lakers? Is Emeka Okafor most improved?…

  8. Buy Shawn Marion’s house, get Super Bowl tickets.

    The housing market is still slumping. If you’re going to sell your home in this market, you’re going to have to have some kind of incentive. Like Super Bowl tickets. Buy Shawn Marion’s former home in Florida and that is just what you get, according to FanHouse. Marion is offering four club-level Super Bowl tickets…

  9. LeBron, Cavaliers in-game talk not so friendly

    Dec 3, 2010, 8:51 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    A chorus of people — led by Charles Barkley — questioned what looked like some friendly banter between the LeBron James and the Cavaliers bench Thursday night. For the most part, people have questioned how the Cavs could joke around with the guy kicking their, um, behind. But apparently it wasn’t that friendly. As Daniel…

  10. Mark Cuban on Mark Cuban

    Dec 3, 2010, 5:52 PM EDT

    Image (1) Cuban_Stern-thumb-250x166-21115.jpg for post 4353

    If you owned an NBA team, wouldn’t you want to be like Mark Cuban? Injecting yourself in the personnel debates, working out in the facilities, flying with the team, taking shots on the court before games. He is a fan/owner. He’s having fun, but he is also very smart and self-aware. And that comes through…

  11. Channing Frye is featured on the oddest, hippest talk show featuring home-brewed juice ever

    Dec 3, 2010, 4:23 PM EDT

    Channing Frye

    Phoenix Suns forward-center Channing Frye was apparently the inaugural guest on “The Sketch Pad,” a surreal online talk show of awkward proportions. No other words could properly preface the clip you’re about to see, so may I only implore you to watch it in its entirety, with one cocked eyebrow if you so choose. Video…

  12. Evan Turner out of the Sixers starting lineup

    Dec 3, 2010, 3:51 PM EDT

    Evan Turner, Anthony Parker

    Evan Turner is still adjusting, still trying to find his way. Especially since the return of Andre Iguodala. For the last dozen games he was getting the chance to figure it all out as part of the starting lineup for Philadelphia, but no more. Tonight he comes off the bench and Jodie Meeks or Andres…

  13. Stephen Jackson apologizes to Bobcats fans in public letter

    Dec 3, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Orlando Magic

    Stephen Jackson plays with emotion, that is one of the reasons he is the Charlotte Bobcats leading scorer. But those emotions have gotten the better of him a few times too. Like last Saturday, when he got ejected for arguing a call. Which led to a suspension. Jackson is sorry — and he wrote and…

  14. Pau Gasol’s hamstring ailing, but Lakers have no other good options

    Dec 3, 2010, 2:23 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Pau Gasol missed 17 games last season because one or another of his hamstrings was hurt. This season, Gasol knew he would have to play more minutes and take on more of the load in the paint until Andrew Bynum returned (then Theo Ratliff went down, making things worse). What has returned more quickly than…

  15. Pistons not for sale to Middle Eastern groups

    Dec 3, 2010, 1:43 PM EDT

    Image (1) pistons_logo-thumb-250x208-11727.png for post 6294

    Reports came out yesterday — ones even briefly echoed on this blog — that a number of Middle Eastern investors were in talks to buy the Detroit Pistons. But that is not the case, the NBA told Tom Ziller of SBNation. The league called it a miscommunication between NBA commissioner David Stern and a foreign…

  16. Quote of the Day: Doc Rivers wants to keep coaching in Boston

    Dec 3, 2010, 1:11 PM EDT

    Image (1) Rivers_Nicholson-thumb-250x166-12903.jpg for post 2332

    “As far as I’m concerned, I’m a Celtic and I plan on being that for a long time, as long as I’m coaching.” —Celtics coach Doc Rivers on WEEI radio in Boston, talking about the rumors Pat Riley will come after him to coach the Miami Heat next year. He again said he expects Erik…

  17. Phil Jackson jokes around about Rudy Tomjanovich, gets taken seriously

    Dec 3, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) jackson.jpg for post 2306

    When the Lakers are struggling — for example, losing four in a row like they have now — Phil Jackson usually tries to lighten the mood at his press conferences. Joking, funny Phil Jackson, who sounds a lot like regular Phil Jackson so unless you’re around him a lot it can be hard to tell.…

  18. Cavs fans had nothing on fans in Greece, just ask Josh Childress

    Dec 3, 2010, 12:33 PM EDT

    Josh Childress , Al Harrington

    There was a lot of anger in Cleveland last night, a lot of “a—hole” chants and a handful of people tossed from the building. It reminded the Suns Josh Childress of Greece (where he played the last two seasons). Well, not really, the Cavaliers fans were not angry enough and did not throw explosives or…

  19. Chris Paul plays New York so crank up the speculation machine

    Dec 3, 2010, 11:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    The New Orleans Hornets will take on the Knicks tonight, and you know what that means — time for some vintage New York speculation. Obviously, Chris Paul wants to be a Knick more than anything in the whole wide world. Why else would he have gone to Carmelo Anthony’s wedding in New York and made…

  20. Hawks sign Damien Wilkins, nephew of Dominique Wilkins

    Dec 3, 2010, 11:32 AM EDT

    Damien Wilkins

    The name Wilkins will once again be across the back of a Hawks jersey. The Hawks have signed Damien Wilkins — nephew of Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins — to a contract, the team announced. The details were not announced but this is certainly a non-guaranteed, minimum money deal. Wilkins has spent six years in the…
