    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.…

  4. Some Sunday highlights, where Kobe is just ridiculous

    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.…

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

    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,…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Stan Van Gundy promises to try and do something he will inevitably not do

    Nov 14, 2010, 2:39 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    With his team reeling after consecutive losses and trying to find their way back to dominance, Stan Van Gundy got desperate and turned to a measure of last resort. Not yelling. Before the Magic’s narrow 91-90 win over the New Jersey Nets, Stan Van Gundy told reporters that he planned on trying to ease off…

  11. Knicks doing due diligence, inquire about Steve Nash

    Nov 14, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    It’s pretty predictable, really. Steve Nash’s best days were with Amar’e Stoudemire and Mike D’Antoni. Raymond Felton is a good point guard, but he’s not Steve Nash. Steve Nash may or may not be on the block if the Suns slip out of playoff contention. So the Knicks are getting in line good and early.…

  12. The Blazers, the Sixers, the Pistons, rebuilding and you

    iggy

    It sits there on your desk, staring at you. Just a big red button. It doesn’t implore you, it doesn’t call out to you, it’s just a button. But you can’t help but glance at it with the first few losses. Then more and more, you stare. Your mind is racing with what to do.…

  13. Brandon Roy leaves Blazers game, does not return

    Nov 14, 2010, 2:27 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    If the Portland Trail Blazers and Brandon Roy believe in signs, the universe has not exactly been warm and fuzzy towards them in the past 24 hours. A day after word came out that Roy would never really be the same player due to his cartilage being completely gone in both knees, Roy was forced…

  14. Will the Hornets ever lose again?

    Nov 14, 2010, 12:18 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New Orleans Hornets

    Before you start to freak out, I’m kidding with that headline. Let’s not bust out the 72-10 tracker yet. Though, I guess, if we started one for the 6-4 Miami Heat we have every right to kickstart one for the Hornets, who improved to 8-0 Saturday night with a 107-87 victory over the Blazers, or…

  15. John Wall Sprains Foot

    Nov 13, 2010, 11:13 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Chicago Bulls

    A Rookie of the Year candidate may have a little problem. In the third quarter of Washington’s game against the Bulls, John Wall left the game with a foot injury. It’s been diagnosed as a sprained foot, via Michael Lee. Wall had 13 and 5 when he left the contest after it bothering him for…

  16. NBA scouting director takes a ride for charity

    Nov 13, 2010, 7:32 PM EDT

    It’s easy to get wrapped up in the business of basketball. Basketball is a full-time job, and due to the extreme pressure and expectations, people can lose sight of the rest of the world. It’s good to see that a prominent member of the NBA front office if above that. Dave D’Allessandro of NJ.com reports…

  17. Say “So long” to Baron Davis for a while

    Nov 13, 2010, 4:38 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Los Angeles Clippers

    Well, he was overweight to start with, then got hurt, then got benched, and now he’s just going to be absent for a while. The LA Times reports that Vinny Del Negro is keeping Baron Davis out until after Thanksgiving to rest his injured knee. The Clips are in a bad spot with Davis. It’s…

  18. Report: DeMarcus Cousins’ behavior is garnering offers, not caution

    Nov 13, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    So you’d think that getting fined by your team for clashing with coaches would be a bad thing. Turns out DeMarcus Cousins has really only improved his stock by being, you know, DeMarcus Cousins. After getting fined earlier this week for what Marc Stein described as a series of clashes leading to “tension” in the…

  19. Saturday Starting 5: Revel in the Great Point Guard Era

    Nov 13, 2010, 10:42 AM EDT

    dwillpaul

    Hey, so, you’re stuck with me on the weekends, so I thought we’d put together something you can count on. Every weekend here at PBT we’ll have the Saturday Starting Five. Five elements, chosen thematically (so I’m not just basically vomiting words onto a screen for you) and brought for discussion about the NBA. Today’s…

  20. Brandon Roy doesn’t need surgery because his knees have no cartilage

    Nov 13, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    BRoy_Celebrates

    Well, good news Blazers fans — Brandon Roy doesn’t need surgery on his sore knees. The bad news is, well, the reason he doesn’t need surgery, as reported by Jason Quick at the Oregonian. There’s no meniscus left to operate on in Roy’s left knee. “Nah. None. Not in my right, either,” Roy said Friday.…
