    Orland’s a company town, and that company is Disney. They own a lot of souls there. They may not own Dwight Howard’s but now he’s in league with them. Howard is doing the voice of Rock Callahan in Disney XD’s cartoon “Kick Buttowski – Suburban Daredevil.” If you don’t know what that is, you don’t…

  2. Mbah a Moute wants better concussion protocol in the NBA

    Feb 8, 2011, 7:03 PM EST

    Mbah a Moute

    One of the biggest sports topics of the year has been the long-term effects of head injuries on professional athletes. There’s overwhelming evidence that suggest that suffering multiple head injuries, particularly concussions, over the course of a career will significantly decrease one’s quality of life in later years, and even lead to early death. For…

    Bad news for Mavericks rookie Dominique Jones — he has a stress fracture in his foot and will be out indefinitely, according to Art Garcia of NBA.com on twitter. That’s not a huge loss to the Mavs, Jones has played just once in the team’s last 11 games and that was for three minutes. But…

  5. Is Carmelo Anthony to Lakers rumor just to prod the Knicks?

    Feb 8, 2011, 5:05 PM EST

    carmelo anthony

    Of course they feel that way. Suddenly reports coming of New York writers are saying that the Carmelo Anthony to the Lakers for Andrew Bynum rumors that sprung forth today are really about the Knicks. Because it’s always about you, New York, isn’t it? Always. First we have Alan Hahn at Newsday who writes: A…

  6. Minnesota likely to trade Corey Brewer, ‘Melo deal or not

    Feb 8, 2011, 4:13 PM EST

    coreybrewer

    Corey Brewer is the latest in a long and proud line of players to have his name dragged into the Carmelo Anthony trade talks. Really, it’s almost a right of passage in the NBA at this point everyone has done it. Except that if this ‘Melo deal fall through, too, Brewer is still likely to…

  7. Video: Rudy Fernandez with the best assist you’ll see this week

    Feb 8, 2011, 3:35 PM EST

    Rudy Fernandez

    For a guy that spent all summer trying to land somewhere else, Rudy Fernandez looks like a guy having some fun in Portland. Along those lines, we bring you Fernandez’s circus assist from last night. It was another thing that went right for the Blazers on a night when they could seem to do no…

    Feb 8, 2011, 3:16 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Talking to the media Thursday night after the Trail Blazers knocked off the Bulls, Portland’s Nicolas Batum said the game plan was to have Andre Miller go right at Derrick Rose because he can’t play defense — except now he says he didn’t say that at all. A couple people reported last Monday night, including…

  9. Ray Allen, Pierce, Durant in All-Star Three-Point contest

    Feb 8, 2011, 2:38 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    This is a pretty good lineup: The man that will be the all-time leader in three pointers made, the NBA’s leading scorer, and the defending champion. This year’s NBA All-Star Three-Point Contest could be interesting. The lineup of shooters for All-Star Saturday Night (Feb. 19) at Staples Center has plenty of guys who can knock…

  10. Rockets, Knicks talking Aaron Brooks deal. Or not.

    Feb 8, 2011, 1:16 PM EST

    Image (1) nba_brooks_250.jpg for post 1510

    Consider these Aaron Brooks trade rumors a case study in sources. We’ll start with this: The New York Knicks need a backup point guard behind Raymond Felton. Toney Douglas has some skills but does not seem a point guard fit in the Knicks up-tempo style. In Houston, Aaron Brooks is coming off the bench and…

  11. Report: Lakers, Nuggets have preliminary Carmelo Anthony talks

    Feb 8, 2011, 12:28 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum Carmelo Anthony

  12. Dwight Howard: “I never said I wanted to leave”

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Already there is speculation about what Dwight Howard is going to do in the summer of 2012, with a report that he wants to find a way to the Knicks or Lakers. Dwight Howard himself is sick of it. He tweeted this: “I never said I wanted to leave stop reading the rumors. It’s really…

  14. PBT Tuesday morning one liners

    Feb 8, 2011, 10:54 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Things that make me happy — Shaun Livingston earning playing time, getting run in crunch time and leading the Bobcats to a win over the Celtics. (No offense to D.J. Augustin or the Celtics, but we root hard for Livingston around these parts.) A fantastic statistical breakdown of what makes Manu Ginobili good. Very good.…

  15. Anthony Parker says Cavaliers are growing from losses

    Feb 8, 2011, 10:15 AM EST

    Anthony Parker

    Anthony Parker was honest after the game — Cleveland is not there but they are growing. They played with a real energy and desperation last night, they just ran into one of the deepest, most talented teams in the league. Even then they had their chances. In the video below Paker talks about that growth,…

  16. Spike Lee thinks Kevin Garnett needs to calm down

    Feb 8, 2011, 9:55 AM EST

    Washington Wizards v New York Knicks

    Spike Lee is an institution at Knicks games, sitting courtside rocking the Landry Fields jersey. Jawing back and forth with players. Talking smack. And it’s all in good fun. Well, except when Kevin Garnett was in town recently, Lee said to ESPNNewYork. That guy lost it. This is really surprising, and this is all true.…

  17. Derrick Rose shows off his crossover, dunking skills

    Feb 8, 2011, 8:47 AM EST

    Derrick Rose

    Is there a better crossover in the NBA than Derrick Rose‘s? There are some other wicked ones out there, but none better for me. This little highlight clip shows off both the crossover and the dunking skills of Rose during the Bulls upset loss to the Trail Blazers Monday. Rose’s crossover is one move that…

    Stephen Jackson, Mark Ayotte

    What you missed while watching the return of the Power Rangers… The Cavaliers setting a new record in futility at the hands of the Mavs was our Game of the Night… Bobcats 94, Celtics 89: Charlotte was in this thing from the start, but it looked like they blew it right before half. That’s when…

  19. Cavaliers would not quit, could not win; lose record 25th straight

    Feb 8, 2011, 12:03 AM EST

    JJ Hickson

    Desperate teams are dangerous teams. And Cleveland was desperate not to set a new all timeconsecutive loss record Monday night. But the thing that trumps effort is talent — Dallas had a lot more of it and a desire not to be the first team to lose to the Cavaliers since before Christmas. The result…

    Brandon Roy

    So much for taking the remainder of the season off to rest.
