  1. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade alley-oop for fun and games

    Nov 7, 2010, 12:10 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/vEPUpl36J6Q?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Going to see a lot of this for the next, oh, five or six years. When you have multiple all-world athletes on your team, things like this are going to happen. Behold! The totally unnecessary but awesome looking alley-oop! Yeah, that’s pretty ridiculous. It’s also fairly indicative of the Heat and their attitude. Magic’s Showtime…

  2. Stephen Jackson fined $50,000 for verbal abuse of an official

    Nov 6, 2010, 7:13 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Orlando Magic

    The NBA announced it has fined Stephen Jackson $50,000 for verbal abuse of game officials during the Bobcats loss to the Pistons Friday night. And now, a short selection of what we believe Jackson said, the same vein of Kevin Garnett’s explanation of what he said to Charlie Villanueva, inspired by Twitter: “Mr. Official, are…

  3. Rajon Rondo has plantar fasciitis. That’s bad.

    Nov 6, 2010, 4:40 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    There are worse words to hear regarding your starting All-Star point guard. “Torn ACL.” “Fractured tibia.” “Turned into Baron Davis.” But right up there is “plantar fasciitis,”  a foot condition that is a remarkably troublesome problem for NBA players. The condition is both sincerely painful to the point of distraction, yet not debilitating to keep…

  4. John Kuester’s safe! Yeah, we’re as surprised as you.

    kuesterthumbsup

    So the Pistons won last night, which is a big deal for them, since it’s their first. I remember my first time. Wait, that’s not what we’re talking about. Anyway, they got off the early season snide against the Bobcats (of course) last night. The problem is they’re still 1 and 5 and have had…

  5. Blazers sign Sean Marks, so he’ll probably be injured soon

    Nov 6, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    marks

    Greg Oden. Joel Przybilla. Jeff Pendergraph. Fabricio Oberto. The list of Portland bigs on the shelf just gets bigger by the day. And now, they’ll add another player and hope he doesn’t go down inside of a month. CBSSports.com reports that the Blazers will sign Sean Marks to a non-guaranteed contract for the veteran minimum…

  6. Cuttino Mobley wants back in the act

    Nov 6, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    mobley

    When Cuttino Mobley was traded to the Knicks two years ago, a heart irregularity was discovered to have worsened in his physical, forcing doctors to tell him he’d never play again. Now, Mobley is out to show that isn’t the case after two years away from the game. Yahoo! Sports reports that Mobley is trying…

  7. Report: Baron Davis is on the block. Good luck with that.

    boomdizzle

    What’s the easiest way to move a declining point guard with three years and $41.65 million remaining on his contract who’s out with a knee injury? Talk about him publicly as being out of shape to the point of not playing him! That’s how! Or at least, that’s the Clipper way. Yahoo! Sports reports that…

  8. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Friday night is for nail biters, apparently

    Nov 6, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pierce_Garnett_highfive

    What you missed installing your all-in-one toilet paper roll holder and iPod Dock… There are more notes from the Hornets 96-93 win over the Heat here. Celtics 110, Bulls 105 (OT): I could have sworn I saw Ray Allen dunk in the overtime. I must be hallucinating. Give the Bulls credit, down 16 in the…

  9. Game of the Night: Where CP3 was better than the Big Three

    CPaul_Heat

    Most Saturdays you’re not going to get a Game of the Night, because that could make us work on a Friday night rather than enjoy another Guinness. But there were so many notes on my plate from the Hornets beating the Heat that it cried out for the space. On that note, I put down…

  10. Kings’ Antoine Wright arrested for DUI

    Nov 5, 2010, 11:56 PM EDT

    AWright_Kings

    There seems to be something about guys in cars with the Sacramento Kings. Former coach Eric Musselman got a DIU, as did minority owner George Maloof. Then there was Tyreke Evans, who got cited and suspended for a game after a 100 mph cruise through the city. Now Antoine Wright has joined group, the reserve…

  11. Andre Igoudala leaves game with strained Achilles

    Nov 5, 2010, 11:03 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala’s 252-game starting streak is in jepoardy. Iguodala strained his right Achilles tendon during the first half of the Sixers loss to the Cavaliers Friday night and did not play in the second half. After the game coach Doug Collins said that the injury was not serious. However, Iguodala’s status for Sunday at the…

  12. Video: Carmelo vs. Carmelo vs. Carmelo, ad infinitum

    Nov 5, 2010, 5:55 PM EDT

    Image (1) CAnthony_stares-thumb-250x140-17932.jpg for post 6271

    Somewhere between Nike Basketball’s fantastic LeBron James “Rise” spot and Reebok’s mind-numbingly awful John Wall/Zigtech campaign is this commercial from Jordan Brand and Carmelo Anthony: . . I’m not sure I quite understand how the current slogan, “DO WHATEVER IT TAKES,” ties in (I guess it’s because in this game, Melo has to literally do…

  13. Spurs release Bobby Simmons, sign Chris Quinn

    Nov 5, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

    Chris Quinn

    The San Antonio Spurs announced that they have decided to release forward Bobby Simmons and sign point guard Chris Quinn. The 30-year old Simmons, who shot 35.9% from the field in New Jersey last season, had only appeared in two games for the Spurs. The 27-year old Quinn, who shot 35.7% from the field in…

  14. Video: Your insane half-court buzzer-beater of the day

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/DAW9qyeiSRM?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    This isn’t technically NBA-related, but it’s impressive anyways. In this video, Kansas Western is leading Baker University and inbounding with two seconds remaining. Kansas Western attempted to get the ball in by throwing a deep inbounds pass, but it was intercepted by Baker’s Sam Kenney, who heaved an off-balance baseball shot over a Kansas Western…

  15. Kevin Love just wants to play

    Nov 5, 2010, 4:21 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v New Orleans Hornets

    Brandon Roy is averaging 40.5 minutes a game this season to lead the league. Team’s stars usually average 35 give or take a little. Pau Gasol is at 37.4 per game this season for the Lakers, Rudy Gay 39.2, Russell Westbrook 36.4, Paul Pierce 37.2. Then there are guys like Beno Udrh getting 36 per…

  16. Free Lou Williams?

    Nov 5, 2010, 3:09 PM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    Kevin Love averages just 26 minutes a game, and the world is outraged. How could Kurt Rambis leave an elite rebounder and promising young big man on the bench for the pitiful Timberwolves? How dare he play Wesley Johnson, Michael Beasley, and Anthony Tolliver — all lesser talents than Love at this juncture — instead…

  17. Gilbert Arenas to make his return tonight in New York

    Nov 5, 2010, 3:02 PM EDT

    Arenas_beardshot

    Seems somehow fitting to have Gilbert Arenas return to the game on a big stage. Arenas will make his return tonight at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks, according to the official Wizards twitter account. Arenas missed the end of training camp and the start of the season with a sprained ankle. Tonight marks his…

  18. Best dunk of the young season belongs to you, Derrick Rose

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

    In case you didn’t see Derrick Rose’s impressive throwdown against the Knicks — or were just too focused on the Knicks winning — here you go. Enjoy.

  19. Knicks fans, media dream of Steve Nash

    Nov 5, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    Nash_Pass2

    Raymond Felton looked pretty good running the Knicks past the Chicago Bulls Thursday night. He’s starting to really understand how to be the point guard in the Mike D’Antoni system. But he’s no Steve Nash. Friday in the New York Post, Marc Berman tries to breathe life into the Nash to the Knicks idea, saying…

  20. Cleveland tells LeBron what he should do: “Be who you said you’d be.”

    Nov 5, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/NvgD9HNTMkM?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    LeBron had to know this was coming, because: 1) He asked a question without answering it; 2) Clevelanders are still bitter. So here you go, the people of Cleveland respond to LeBron’s Rise ad.
