    Mar 21, 2011, 5:42 PM EST

    IFA Technology Fair

    You didn’t think we could tie the devastating earthquake and tsunami into the NBA, but you underestimate us. First a little background: The NBA and many major sporting events for the past few years (even before 3D technology was really available for home use) were being filmed in 3D also. Things like the Olympics (some…

    Mar 21, 2011, 4:39 PM EST

    THABEET_HASHEEM

    Hasheem Thabeet is back in the D-League. It’s as good an option as the Rockets had. They acquired Thabeet — 7’3” former No. 2 overall pick out of Connecticut — in the Shane Battier trade but they were not playing him. He’s been on the court a total of 4 minutes since the trade. But…

    Mar 21, 2011, 4:14 PM EST

    Arron Afflalo, Francisco Elson

    Denver’s offense did not look right with Arron Afflalo and Raymond Felton — the team’s starting backcourt — out this weekend. Of course, playing good defensive teams in Miami and Orlando probably had a little to do with that, too. Afflalo will be out the rest of the week recovering from a hamstring tweak, George…

    Mar 21, 2011, 3:04 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    NBC Miami has one of those shows you can only do at NBC Miami — Nitecap with Peter Bailey. Where a celebrity rolls up to a Miami pool after hours and just hangs with the host talking whatever for a few minutes, then hits the club. Although, this is Ron Artest, so we’re sure he…

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:14 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Notice that two of the top three are from the West? That’s because the East is stumbling toward the playoffs. 1. Lakers (50-20, LW #3).

    17th Annual ESPY Awards - Red Carpet

    When Jalen Rose was 17 and making one of the biggest decisions of his life — where to attend college — the inner city Detroit kid didn’t want to go to Duke because he didn’t see that as a place he fit in. In ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary on Rose and Michigan’s Fab Five,…

    Mar 21, 2011, 11:50 AM EST

    Amare Stoudemire Vouge

    New York loves Amar’e Stoudemire. New York loves fashion (at least that’s what I learned watching Sex and the City). So Stoudemire on the pages of Vouge’s beautiful body issue this month shouldn’t be a shock. It is on newsstands tomorrow, the issue with Rihanna on the cover. Not that you notice such things. As part…

    Mar 21, 2011, 11:03 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Washington Wizards

    Two things we know are going to happen this summer: 1) There is going to be a lockout (sorry folks, but it is happening). 2) Germany is going to be trying to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics. That’s leading Dirk Nowitzki to think about helping his nation qualify for the games, he told the…

    Apple Unveils iPad 2

    One thing that has become ubiquitous in NBA locker rooms and around players — iPads. Out West, seeds five through 11 are within five games of each other. Here’s a breakdown on who has the advantage. A Sacramento PR man is urging a boycott of an April 1 Kings game in protest of the team’s…

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    In case you missed it Sunday, the Knicks two superstars playing in the vaunted “seven seconds of less” offense managed to put up just 9 points in the first quarter Sunday against the Bucks.

    Chauncey Billups

    Mar 20, 2011, 10:32 PM EST

    blake-griffin-gortat

    Late in the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ Sunday afternoon game against the Suns, Blake Griffin absolutely posterized Marcin Gortat. Taking off from the middle of lane, Griffin skied so high over the seven-footer that he literally threw the ball down into the basket to finish the play. NBA.com has the video, which you need…
