  1. Greg Oden to have microfracture surgery, out for season again

    Nov 17, 2010, 10:38 PM EDT

    greg_oden

    Greg Oden is about to miss another season with his second microfracture surgery, the team has announced. Another injury to his knees, something that has to make you question if we will ever see the injury plagued former No. 1 overall pick on the court again. The Basketball Gods have it in for this man,…

  2. Rip Hamilton ejected five minutes into Lakers/Pistons game

    RHamilton_ejection

    How you feel about Rip Hamilton’s ejection less than five minutes into the Lakers game against the Pistons is like a Rorschach test for how you feel about the NBA’s new “respect for the game” enforcement and use of technical fouls. At the 7:01 mark of the first quarter, Hamilton was whistled for his second…

  3. Tony Parker comments on his divorce; pulls curtain between public, private life

    Nov 17, 2010, 9:01 PM EDT

    Eva Longoria Parker, Tony Parker

    A divorce scandal has no place in a basketball headline, yet here we are. The story isn’t likely to go away soon considering the nature of the rumors being circulated and the profiles of both Tony Parker and his soon-to-be ex-wife Eva Longoria Parker, but the Spurs’ point guard did what he could to make…

  4. New Warriors owners not sure how they outbid Larry Ellison either

    Nov 17, 2010, 8:33 PM EDT

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    There was a given going into the sale of the Warriors — if he wanted the team, Silicon Valley mogul Larry Ellison could win the auction. Easy. You know how rich Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov is? Trail Blazer owner Paul Allen (he of the ground floor of Microsoft)? Ellison is worth more than both of…

  5. Celtics great Russell given Medal of Freedom

    Russell Block

    Celtics legend Bill Russell, who won 11 championships in 13 seasons and is almost universally regarded as the best defensive player of all time, was named one of the 15 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Other recipients of the award this year include former president George W. Bush, Warren Buffett, Maya Angelou, Stan…

  6. D.J. Augustin’s quasi-validation

    Nov 17, 2010, 4:55 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Darko Milicic

    In my preseason mind, D.J. Augustin was destined to have a pretty crummy year for the Bobcats. He was coming off of a poor-shooting sophomore campaign in which his confidence was shredded by Larry Brown, and it was hard to imagine D.J. leading the ‘Cats to a successful season. Even if Charlotte somehow made the…

  7. New Jersey teen pleads guilty to calling in NBA Offices bomb threats

    A 19-year-old former security guard has pled guilty to calling in bomb threat to the NBA offices in New Jersey, according to the Bergen Record. Jose L. Quesada Jr. admitted to U.S. District Judge Jose L. Linares that he made the threatening calls with his cellphone over a period of days beginning July 26. At…

  8. Rockets not bad, but adrift in NBA’s middle ground without a star to guide them

    Nov 17, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

    rockets_huddle

    There are two parts to constructing a winning team. First, get yourself a superstar or two. Next, get complementary and affordable role players to go around them that fit the system. The Houston Rockets have the second part of this down, it’s the first part that has Daryl Morey stuck. But he’s trying, according to…

  9. Geoff Petrie has the Kings all wrong

    Nov 17, 2010, 2:37 PM EDT

    Geoff Petrie

    The last thing that any sports fan wants to read or hear is that their team’s leadership — owners, coaches, GMs, etc. — doesn’t seem to know something that they obviously should. With that in mind, I’d encourage all Kings fans who planned on feeling good about their team’s direction today to move along and…

  10. Andrew Bynum finds it’s illegal to be going double the speed limit

    Nov 17, 2010, 2:37 PM EDT

    Last night, Andrew Bynum was on the court before the Lakers took on the Milwaukee Bucks, practicing some moves while wearing a heavy knee brace. No defense, not a lot of speed, just some court work, but that’s a step forward toward his return in a few weeks. On Oct. 29, Andrew Bynum was behind…

  11. Like a Bosh, the video

    Nov 17, 2010, 1:57 PM EDT

    The guys at The Basketball Jones are just bloody brilliant. Because nobody could sum up Chris Bosh’s career in rap better than some white guys from Toronto… okay that sounds weird, but it really does work.

  12. Spurs sign Danny Green to deal

    Nov 17, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    danny-green

    The Spurs let Alonzo Gee go, which dropped their roster down to 12 players. League rules require a team to carry 13 players. Hello Danny Green. The Spurs have signed the former Tarheel swingman, according to a tweet from Jeff McDonald of the Express-News. This is really an extended tryout for Green more than anything.…

  13. This time they mean it: Eva Longoria files for divorce from Tony Parker

    Nov 17, 2010, 1:06 PM EDT

    parkerlongoria

    UPDATE 9:13 pm: Tony Parker commented briefly on his divorce before the Spurs game Wednesday night, trying to draw a distinction between his public and private lives. 1: 06 pm: Two days ago her people were denying it up and down, but today the papers were in court — Eva Longoria has filed for divorce…

  14. Thunder winning games, just not expectation game

    Nov 17, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    Durant_Westbrook

    The Oklahoma City Thunder are 6-4, which means they are on pace for about 49 wins this season. Kevin Durant leads the league in scoring. If the playoff started today after an absurdly short regular season, they would be the seven seed in the West. That coming after a season where they won 50 games,…

  15. Anthony Parker’s hustle and flow (and flip)

    Nov 17, 2010, 11:50 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/7aP8IhThSvc?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Anthony Parker made a coach’s play. This is the kind of little thing that gets you more burn next game. The kind of thing a coach remembers more than just another corner three. The Cavaliers are 5-5 and currently your sixth seed in the East because (in part) they are playing hard for Byron Scott.…

  16. His doctor says David Lee’s elbow still looks like he was in a bar brawl

    Nov 17, 2010, 11:08 AM EDT

    DLee_Rebound

    David Lee did what he had been trained to do since junior high — get the rebound. Use your big body, that is your ball. That space this time happened to include Wilson Chandler’s face. And teeth. Which is where Lee’s elbow landed. I know nothing about Chandler’s state of oral hygiene — it’s called…

  17. Dallas’ blueprint for corralling Rajon Rondo

    Nov 17, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    Rondo_Mavs

    Rajon Rondo is playing so well — assisting on half of his team’s baskets when he is on the floor, pitching in 10.8 points per game, playing great defense — that his name is mentioned in early MVP talks. It’s far too premature to talk about that, but Rondo has been amazing at adapting to…

  18. Troy Murphy spends a lot of time on the bench for a guy making $12 million

    Nov 17, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Nets_Murphy

    Troy Murphy is making $12 million this season, the Nets big summer acquisition that was going to bring some scoring punch from the four. He was going to mentor Derrick Favors. He would be a big part of the franchise — for a year, then the franchise would try to go get someone they really…

  19. Billups 75-footer waived off for traveling

    Nov 17, 2010, 8:55 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/KF1MCLLuc2g?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    It was the right call. Which sucks because everyone outside of the five boroughs wants to give him a little something for the effort. But Chauncey Billups did travel before hitting this fantastic shot. But we’re going to show it to you anyway. Because we can.

  20. Lakers shopping for short-term backup center

    With Andrew Bynum still a few weeks away, Theo Ratliff out for a month or more after knee surgery, Lamar Odom’s sore foot and so on, the Lakers may be looking for some help. So that Pau Gasol doesn’t have to play 43 minutes, like he did against the Bucks Tuesday. Phil Jackson said the…
