  1. John Wall’s ridiculous bounce-pass ally-oop to Blake Griffin

    Feb 19, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Rookie John Wall, of the Washington Wiza

    The best highlight of All-Star weekend happened Friday night. You think maybe we should watch the All-Star Game and the Dunk Contest before we render judgement? Wrong. We should just watch the video below and realize it is over. During Friday night’s Rookie Challenge, John Wall makes a bounce pass from behind the three-point arc…

  2. CBA update: Owners, players sit down in same room. That’s about it.

    This was the one bit of good news — for the first time in two-and-a-half months the owners and players sat down in the same room and talked about a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Words like “amicable” and “thawed” were thrown around by Billy Hunter, executive director of the National Basketball Players Association (the union)…

  3. Rookies defeat sophomores, Wall given MVP

    Feb 19, 2011, 12:17 AM EST

    John Wall

    The first half of the 2011 Rookie/Sophomore challenge only vaguely resembled basketball. None of the players on either side of the court even pretended to play defense, and stood under the basket and watch their opponents launch threes. Fast-break dunks after made baskets were common. Alley-oops were being thrown down every minute or so. In…

  4. Report: Knicks make formal offer for Carmelo Anthony, too

    The Nets and Denver reportedly have a deal in place for Carmelo Anthony, if he approves it. Now the Knicks have apparently put their offer on the table. According to Mark Spears of Yahoo (via twitter) the Knicks have offered Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Eddy Curry’s expiring contract (and Curry too, we suppose)…

  5. Video: Blake Griffin hits his head on the backboard

    Feb 18, 2011, 8:15 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    It’s good to know that the superstar athletes of the NBA struggle with the same issues you and I do playing the game. Some nights the shots just don’t fall. Some nights it’s hard to stop the guy you are guarding. Some days you go up to dunk hit your head on the backboard. You…

  6. Spurs dismiss hot start as meaningless if they go cold now

    Feb 18, 2011, 7:26 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    Gregg Popovich admitted he holds his breath every time Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili step off a curb. Things have gone about as well as the Spurs could hope for this season — including them having the same starting five for 55 of the 56 games. They have won 46 of those and looked every…

  7. Dennis Rodman, Chris Mullin make Hall of Fame final ballot

    Feb 18, 2011, 6:30 PM EST

    Bulls v Magic Rodman

    We complained that Reggie Miller was not on the list — have a discussion if he should be in the Naismith Hall of Fame if you want, he was a bit one-dimensional, but not to be on the final ballot is a travesty — still that should not taking away from the people that make…

  8. ‘Melo says nothing yet, but he hopes to have offer this weekend

    Feb 18, 2011, 5:45 PM EST

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    Carmelo Anthony spoke to the media for 20 minutes on Friday afternoon and was able to sound like an innocent bystander in his own trade drama. “I don’t know/out of my control,” was his mantra as he said nothing was in place. No meetings are set with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov or Knicks owner James…

  9. Anthony apparently has no plan to meet with Nets owner

    Feb 18, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    carmelo anthony dunk

    Just in case you hadn’t had enough fun with the latest surge of Carmelo Anthony trade rumors (that may or may not be exactly the same in status as the rumors which circulated some six months ago), here’s a fun bit: Anthony apparently has no knowledge at all of the reported meeting he’s supposed to…

  10. Rio Grande Valley Vipers sign former Duke guard Jon Scheyer

    Feb 18, 2011, 3:43 PM EST

    Jon Scheyer

    Jon Scheyer was never a surefire NBA player to begin with, a point made crystal clear when he went undrafted last summer. That said, Scheyer still seemed like an interesting prospect, even if he’s fairly limited in terms of athleticism. As a tall combo guard who can initiate offense and his outside shots consistently, Scheyer…

  11. Report: Celtics, Bulls both want Cavaliers’ Anthony Parker

    Feb 18, 2011, 1:43 PM EST

    Anthony Parker

    If you’re Anthony Parker, you’re packing your bags with a smile on your face today. Because no matter how this goes down, you’re about to head from the worst team in the NBA to a contender. Both the Celtics and Cavaliers are interested in picking up Parker, according to Marc Stein of ESPN: The Celts,…

  12. Your All-Star weekend schedule

    Feb 18, 2011, 1:15 PM EST

    staples-center

    It was so nice of David Stern and the NBA to bring the All-Star Game to the home city of PBT (myself and John Krolik both live here). That way we still have to deal with family and other responsibilities in addition to work. No trip out of town for us. No working vacation. Nope,…

  13. Nuggets and Nets reportedly agree on deal, leaving Anthony to determine his own fate

    At long last, a deal is reportedly in place which would make Carmelo Anthony a Net…if he so chooses. According to Fred Kerber of the New York Post, New Jersey and Denver have agreed to terms on a deal that would bring the Anthony trade saga to its overdue conclusion. However, as has been the…

  14. Video: Derrick Rose shreds the San Antonio Spurs

    Derrick Rose thrust himself into the middle of the MVP debate Thursday night dropping 42 on the San Antonio Spurs. Nobody had done that to the Spurs all season (which is why they have the best record in the NBA). Rose came into the league with amazing athletic gifts, but he has developed a steady…

  15. PBT Friday morning one liners (and some trade rumors)

    Feb 18, 2011, 11:36 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    Mark Cuban says not to expect the Mavericks are going to make a trade. The Sixers may make a move, but don’t expect one for Andre Iguodala. Rumors floated around but there is no Marreese Speights for Dante Cunningham deal between the Sixers and Blazers. Is LaMarcus Aldridge the Tim Duncan for a new generation?…

  16. Reggie Miller not on Hall of Fame finalists ballot. Somehow.

    Feb 18, 2011, 10:27 AM EST

    reggie-miller

    Is Spike Lee more powerful than we all thought? Because aside that I’m at a loss to explain the news from Jonathon Abrams of the New York Times that Reggie Miller is not one of the finalists on the Hall of Fame ballot. Those finalists will be formally announced later on Friday. We’d tell you…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Derrick Rose kicks his MVP campaign into high gear

    Feb 18, 2011, 9:35 AM EST

    Derrick Rose, Tony Parker

    What you missed while wondering just how screwed up a world it is that the Kardashians made $65 million last year… Bulls 109, Spurs 99: For two of the better defensive teams in the league there was a whole lot of offense going on in this one. Both teams create serious matchup problems for the…

  18. Contenders, pretenders, wish-it-would-enders — taking stock of the NBA at the break

    Feb 18, 2011, 3:33 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Welcome to All-Star Weekend, when the NBA takes a break from playing games to talk about trades. And hear about the great parties that the players went to. Then talk about more trades. Then watch an exhibition with less defense than a Cavs-Raptors game. For the rest of us, it’s a good time to take…

  19. Lakers GM Kupchak calls trade “unlikely”

    Feb 18, 2011, 12:39 AM EST

    Mitch Kupchak

    They just lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s inconcievable. So you’d have it right if you thought Lakers fans were talking about trades today. And by talking about we mean obsessing over and demanding. Not going to happen. Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak said as much at the unveiling of the Jerry West statue outside of…

  20. Tim Duncan to start for Yao Ming in All-Star Game

    Feb 17, 2011, 9:30 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

    It came down to Tim Duncan and Pau Gasol. Gregg Popovich went with his guy, not the hometown guy. He went with the guy who has started the last 11 All-Star Games, not the guy playing better this season. Tim Duncan will start at center for the West in the All-Star Game Sunday, replacing the…
