  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

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

    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…

  5. 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.…

  6. Jeopardy contestants draw a blank on an all-time NBA great

    Not everyone watches basketball. I get that. Yet there are certain players — certain names, even — that are so big they transcend the fan population. Tim Duncan is one such player. Duncan is the best of his generation, a perfect marriage of efficient offense and stifling defense. He’s hit every statistical milestone one could…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where we watch Pistons/Clippers so you don’t have to

    Nov 13, 2010, 3:47 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while being blinded by Oregon’s home court this season… Timberwolves 112, Knicks 103: We talked about Kevin Love’s 31-31 night that sparked the come-from-behind win. Michael Beasley also dropped 35 in this one. He had 42 the other night. We’re far from convinced with him, but we’re watching now. Jazz 90, Hawks…

  8. All you need is Love — Kevin gets 31 points, 31 rebounds

    The Detroit Pistons were in the visiting locker room at Staples Center, having just beaten the Clippers, when all of a sudden Tracy McGrath just let’s out a “day-am” that turns heads when he saw it on his phone, according to Eric Incus of HoopsWorld. Rudy Gay was tweeting about it. Even for other NBA…

  9. Heat considering starting lineup changes, but options limited

    Nov 12, 2010, 11:54 PM EDT

    LeBron James,  Dwayne Wade, Joel Anthony, Chris Bosh, Carlos Arroyo

    It is way too early to panic in Miami. If you thought it was as simple as just rolling out the basketball, well, you’re one of those people that thinks Phil Jackson has just been lucky. Eleven times. It was going to take time to figure out how to activate both LeBron James and Dwyane…

  10. Why you don’t want to walk a mile in Andray Blatche’s shoes, and what he did to earn it

    Nov 12, 2010, 6:59 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/9thi8tBbC6Q?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    It’s one of the more legendary locker room pranks, a move that crosses pretty much every line of decorum, which makes it especially gross or funny — or both — depending on how you view things. It was vintage Gilbert Arenas. It’s a story Michael Lee told in the Washington Post in the wake of…

  11. Cousins’ attitude a problem in Sacramento?

    Nov 12, 2010, 6:05 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    ESPN.com’s Marc Stein has some disturbing news for Kings fans regarding rookie power forward DeMarcus Cousins: Word is that handling rookie forward DeMarcus Cousins is proving to be an even bigger job for coach Paul Westphal and his staff than expected, even after the Kings hired Cousins’ high school coach (Otis Hughley) in hopes of…

  12. Allen Iverson says he’s not ready, Turkey debut delayed

    Nov 12, 2010, 5:13 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Iverson was supposed to debut for Istanbul’s Besiktas in Turkey on Friday, bringing his unique brand of American isolation basketball to the backwards, ball-sharing Europeans. Enlightening them. But not so fast, he’s not ready, according to the Associated Press. Team manager Murat Murtezaoglu told The Associated Press the 11-time NBA All-Star “did not feel ready”…

  13. David Lee to miss a couple weeks because of this

    Nov 12, 2010, 4:12 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/9LaVM5cIVsE?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Wilson Chandler thinks he’s a hockey player. His reaction to losing a couple teeth was more Rangers than Knicks. And you thought Mike D’Antoni’s teams were soft. David Lee? He will miss a couple weeks due to an infected elbow, according to Jeff Goodman from Fox Sports. Both his elbow and bicep were swollen, called…

  14. Heat’s Mike Miller wants to be back for the Lakers on Christmas

    Nov 12, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    MMiller_heat

    While the rest of us are filled with a slight dread thinking about Christmas — unless you’re one of those organized a—— who has finished their shopping already — Mike Miller is counting down the days like a six-year-old. He’s set that day as the new goal for his return to the Heat lineup. The…

  15. Keith Smart says rebounding key to Warriors start

    Nov 12, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    DLee_Rebound

    Golden State is different this season. You can see it in the 6-3 record, you can see it in better effort — well, any effort — on defense. But coach Keith Smart told KNBR in San Francisco (via Sports Radio Interviews) that the biggest difference has been in rebounding — the Warriors are one of…

  16. Warriors sale approved, becomes official

    Nov 12, 2010, 3:19 PM EDT

    Image (1) warriors_logo_classic.jpg for post 2295

    In practice, the changes were already underway with the Warriors — Don Nelson was out, Keith Smart was in. A lineup of only shooters was being replaced by grittier, more physical players. But now the change in ownership that precipitated all of that is official — Joseph Lacob and Peter Guber have been unanimously approved…

  17. Oklahoma City winning at the free throw line

    Nov 12, 2010, 3:05 PM EDT

    durant_FT

    Oklahoma City has not been right so far this season. The offense ends up in too much isolation for Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. The defense lacks the tenacity it had last season, teams are shooting well against them. OKC is not creating turnovers and converting those into the spectacular transition points we expect. But…

  18. Joakim Noah won’t be oppressed by shirts, pesky social norms

    Nov 12, 2010, 2:09 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Joakim Noah is a weird dude. Seriously. He’s productive, unbridled, effective, wild — you can take your pick of frenetic adjectives and chances are, they apply. Noah’s career has been marked equally by his production and his energy, and it’s safe to say that regardless of what Noah does, he’ll do it in his own…

  19. Timberwolves make it official, sign Sundiata Gaines

    Nov 12, 2010, 1:33 PM EDT

    Sundiata Gaines

    We told you yesterday they were thinking about it, today the Minnesota Timberwolves made it official, signing Sundiata Gaines to help fill their depleted back court. Gaines is a stop-game measure due to injuries —Luke Ridnour and Jonny Flynn are expected back next week, Martell Webster and Wayne Ellington could help some but they are…

  20. The evolution of Tony Parker

    Nov 12, 2010, 1:16 PM EDT

    Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich

    The Tony Parker that kept opposing coaches up at night because of his scoring is still out there. He can still hit the accelerator coming around a high pick, be in the lane in a flash and even though your help defender recognized it in time he is helpless as Parker puts up a pretty…
