    With all the talk about the Celtics, the Lakers, the Hornets, and the Heat going on right now, it’s pretty easy not to notice that the 8-1 San Antonio Spurs have the league’s second-best record. The Spurs haven’t had a very tough schedule, of course, and didn’t have a signature win on their record until…

  2. Raptors assign Solomon Alabi to the Erie BayHawks, Ed Davis may join him

    Nov 15, 2010, 5:44 PM EDT

    Solomon Alabi

    Solomon Alabi was among a notable class of second rounders in the 2010 draft, but his NBA career will be put on pause after just 18 seconds of action. The Toronto Raptors announced that they have assigned Alabi to their D-League affiliate, the Erie BayHawks, and it’s a move that certainly makes sense for all…

  3. Luis Scola is already making summer plans, intends to play for Argentina

    Nov 15, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    Luis Scola

    Thanks to their victory at this past summer’s FIBA World Championships, Team USA has an automatic bid for the 2012 Olympics. Other national teams still have plenty of work to do, as spots to compete in the Olympic pool must be earned through qualifying tournaments held all around the world. That doesn’t mean we should…

  4. LeBron James nominated for TIME “Person of the Year” award

    Nov 15, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Well, that was unexpected. TIME Magazine just released its list of 25 nominees for its annual “Person of the Year” award, and Heat forward and Controversial Person LeBron James is one of them. After “the decision,” the 25-year old James has never been less popular, but he’s also never been more in the news. Since…

  5. Trying to reassemble the Knicks

    Nov 15, 2010, 4:05 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    It was supposed to be different. It really was. With the roster expunged of the mess outside of Wilson Chandler who is still serviceable and Eddy Curry who at least keeps the bench firmly weighted to the ground, things were supposed to be different for the New York Knicks. They had a superstar in Amar’e…

  6. The Heat don’t need Erick Dampier, but they could surely use him

    Nov 15, 2010, 3:54 PM EDT

    Erick Dampier

    Count me among those that sees Miami’s rough start as a temporary turmoil. It’s only a matter of time before the pieces start clicking just right, if only because the level of talent between LeBron James and Dwyane Wade breaks dimensional bounds and head coach Erik Spoelstra won’t rest until the offense is structured and…

  7. Minnesota focusing on improving their high five efficiency rating

    Nov 15, 2010, 3:04 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Two weeks ago, Kevin Love and Wesley Johnson botched an in-game high five in amazingly awkward fashion. That one particularly graceless moment sparked hard-hitting journalists across the country into action, and the folks at Timberwolves.com have put together a probing, insightful look into “one of the most tragic moment in Minnesota sports history.” You know…

  8. Defending Rajon Rondo

    Nov 15, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo’s outlandish point guard-ery this season is even more remarkable considering his obvious offensive flaw; Rondo is five years into his NBA career and yet his jump shot is still weaning. There are other wildly successful NBA players with holes in their games, but in some cases, there are institutional limits to prevent teams…

  9. Kwame Brown’s season could begin tonight

    Nov 15, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    You know times are tough when Kwame Brown’s return from injury qualifies as some kind of great hope. The Bobcats have started the season 3-7. Their defense, which was tops in the league last season, has fallen to 14th, while their offense remains as miserable as ever. The season is young, but it’s hard to…

  10. Serge Ibaka flies, Gary Neal is in a poster

    Just a little more fun from last night, because when they run the Thunder are fun. And Gary Neal, welcome to the NBA.

  11. NBA Power Rankings, where we have a new number one

    CPaul_Heat

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, or, how Laker fans shouldn’t panic unless they get up by 18 against the Jazz. 1. Hornets (8-0). They are not going to win 82, or 72, or even 62. But what this kind of start does is make it very likely they are playoff bound. And after watching them…

  12. Kobe tells owners to “look in the mirror”

    Nov 15, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kobe_stares3

    Kobe Bryant, when he is serious, is direct. You will not confuse what he says with what he means — it is straight and plain. Kobe was serious when talking with CBS’s Ken Berger about the upcoming Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations. “I think the owners need to look in the mirror,” Bryant told CBSSports.com when…

  13. Knicks still suck, and Stoudemire doesn’t like it

    Nov 15, 2010, 10:21 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    The New York Knicks are 3-7 and dropped five in a row now. Including to Minnesota and a previously struggling Rockets team in the last two. Knicks fans booed the home team Sunday after their latest loss. Amar’e Stoudemire told ESPNNewYork that he didn’t like that. “It’s definitely something that I’m not accustomed to. It’s…

  14. Kings’ Jason Thompson can be yours, if you want him

    Nov 15, 2010, 10:12 AM EDT

    jthompson_kings

    Interesting note out of ESPN’s Mark Stein this morning: (Sacramento forward Jason) Thompson is averaging just 15.4 minutes per game off the bench and has been shopped by the Kings, who according to one source with knowledge of the talks offered the 6-11, 250-pounder to Atlanta in a deal featuring young point guard Jeff Teague.…

  15. Some Sunday highlights, where Kobe is just ridiculous

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/1lIYYQHdDjk?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    We know you couldn’t take your eyes off that gripping Bills/Lions game yesterday, who could? That is some captivating sports television, right there. But that means you missed some NBA action, like the Lakers losing due to a flurry of threes from the Suns. And of course, you missed the usual flurry of NBA highlights.…

  16. Game of the Night: Suns bury Lakers with 22 threes

    Nov 15, 2010, 1:33 AM EDT

    What a crazy game in Los Angeles. The Phoenix Suns managed to hand the Lakers their first home loss of the season despite losing their starting center (and the only Phoenix player who would have had a chance of keeping the Lakers off the boards) early in the game, but it was far from easy.…

    According to Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register, Los Angeles Laker forward Lamar Odom will get an MRI on his right foot for what Phil Jackson called a “bone bruise” after the Lakers’ 116-121 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday Night. Odom played well in the game, accounting for 22 points, 11 rebounds,…

  18. Lamar Odom suing mother of his kids while Steve Nash divorces the mother of his

    Nov 14, 2010, 9:07 PM EDT

    If you’re a fan of celebrity gossip about NBA stars and their personal lives, this weekend was for you. Personally, I tend to think none of this stuff matters and the mere breaching of conversation on the topics is entering into an uncomfortable level of judgment in matters we hardly have any facts on. Illegal…

  19. Kevin Love has letdown after 31-31 game, only grabs 17 rebounds

    Nov 14, 2010, 8:45 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Well, hey, it was probably too much to ask for the youngster to keep it up. Two days after making himself a part of NBA history with 31 points and 31 rebounds, Kevin Love came crashing back to Earth for the Minnesota Timberwolves, only scoring 22 points and 17 rebounds in a 111-105 loss to…

  20. Dwight Howard still on the fence about extension

    Nov 14, 2010, 8:14 PM EDT

    howardface

    With all the movings and goings on in free agency, every team has had concerns about their star moving on. The Magic are trying to get ahead of that speeding train by locking up Dwight Howard to a longterm extension. In years past, the only question about stars re-signing was if the team was willing…
