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

    Nov 5, 2010, 5:01 PM EDT

    [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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Knicks fans, media dream of Steve Nash

    Nov 5, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    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…

  7. 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.

  8. Portland needs another center, bringing in everyone tall for workouts

    Nov 5, 2010, 1:01 PM EDT

    Image (1) blazers_logo-thumb-250x275-12376.png for post 2181

    Fabricio Oberto has joined the long and storied tradition of Portland Trail Blazer big men who can’t play for them right now — Greg Oden, Joel Pryzbilla, Jeff Pendergraph. It’s not really funny, but if you can’t laugh about this run of luck you’d just be curled up on a corner of your bed crying.…

  9. Kobe Bryant hears the Call of Duty, brings Mamba gun

    Nov 5, 2010, 12:23 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZB1JQ_tfbHM?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    Kobe Bryant has a cameo in the new commercial for Call of Duty: Black Ops. The fact they have Kobe in a commercial like this one shows you how much money is in video games, but that’s a discussion for another day. For now, watch Kobe blow things up.

  10. Mickael Pietrus, Stan Van Gundy argue over playing time. Van Gundy will win.

    Nov 5, 2010, 11:46 AM EDT

    Image (1) SVan_Gundy-thumb-250x166-11630.jpg for post 1965

    Wednesday night against Minnesota, Mickael Pietrus played just three minutes. It was a blowout win and he could not get on the court. He was not happy about it and let coach Stan Van Gundy know, which led to a shouting match on the bench, according to the Orlando Sentinel. “MP was unhappy about when…

  11. Quote of the day: Kevin Garnett is a little Chihuahua

    Nov 5, 2010, 10:58 AM EDT

    Image (1) Garnett_Odom-thumb-250x346-12955.jpg for post 2348

    “I’d love to see Charlie (Villanueva) and KG (Kevin Garnett) in the ring. I’d pick Charlie  I’ve seen KG get his ass whupped. … He’s always barking, and when it’s time to get physical, he’s always been a little chihuahua…. I ain’t never seen him bark up a bear. He’s always being a little chihuahua.…

  12. Report: Bulls considering trading James Johnson to Charlotte

    Nov 5, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    Image (1) bulls_logo-thumb-250x239-11450.gif for post 1919

    James Johnson has found a bit of a place in Tom Thibodeau’s rotation in Chicago — Thursday night he got 8:16 off the bench. But the Bulls are exploring trading him to Charlotte, according to Mark Stein of ESPN. Exactly what they would get that they need out of this transaction remains unclear. Chicago also…

  13. Suns, it’s time to bench Turkoglu and start Warrick

    Nov 5, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    Warrick_suns

    Look at the comparison of two power forwards playing almost the exact same minutes per game: Player A is scoring 12.3 points per game, hitting 57.1 percent of his shots and getting to the line five times a game, pulling down 5.5 boards and has a PER of 21.7. Player B is scoring 8.5 points…

  14. It’s Danny Ainge’s turn to stick up for Kevin Garnett

    Nov 5, 2010, 9:12 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Just when you were hoping the whole Kevin Garnett/Charlie Villanueva/”cancer patient” controversy had run its course, Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge jumps in the fay. Ainge has a weekly radio show on WEEI in Boston and — shockingly — backed his player Garnett 100 percent, as transcribed by ESPNBoston. “There’s one thing that I know…

  15. Sonics mascot Squatch shows up for Thunder game, carries “homeless” sign

    Nov 5, 2010, 8:17 AM EDT

    Squatch_Sonics

    Lest you think the people of Seattle have forgotten, they have not. Oh, they have learned to live with the Sonics leaving for Oklahoma City, with owners who betrayed them. But don’t think they are over it. For example, the former Sonics mascot “Squatch” walked around Portland’s Rose Garden — with a “homeless” sign —…

  16. Games of the Night: Where Derrick Rose had really good seats for the ending

    Nov 5, 2010, 3:17 AM EDT

    Noah_Turiaf

    Knicks 120, Bulls 112: Bulls fans are going to get all over rookie coach Tom Thibodeau for not putting Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah back in when the team was on a run and pulled within nine late. Instead, the Bulls two best players sat the entire end of the contest. That was not where…

  17. Isiah dreams of coming back to the Knicks, says he could have signed LeBron

    Nov 5, 2010, 2:51 AM EDT

    Image (1) ithomas-thumb-250x140-15464.jpg for post 3017

    Isiah Thomas may have been spurned by the Knicks, but he is not over her. He wants another shot at the relationship. We kind of knew that, but he misses her more than we thought. And like anyone spurned and wanting back in a relationship, he is a little bit delusional about what really happened.…

  18. Heat fly jerk…er, fan down to Miami for a game…or not

    Nov 4, 2010, 11:30 PM EDT

    Image (1) heat_LeBron_jersey-thumb-250x151-16928.jpg for post 3379

    UPDATE 11:30 pm: The Miami Heat have changed their mind. Matthew Bellamy is not going to a Heat game unless he pays his own way. Here is the team statement, via The Heat Index: “An invitation was prematurely extended to [Bellamy] prior to the approval process being completed,” according to a Heat team statement released…

  19. Andrew Bynum could return to practice court next week, will start when returns

    Nov 4, 2010, 10:43 PM EDT

    Image (1) Davis_Bynum-thumb-250x348-13367.jpg for post 2464

    It’s not like the Lakers are struggling, they are 5-0 and with one of the best point differentials in the league. Kobe is clearly 100 percent, playing in the World Championships has Lamar Odom in midseason form, Gasol is Gasol, and Steve Blake and Matt Barnes are fitting in well. But it is all about…

  20. Marvin Williams suffers right knee bone bruise, out one game

    UPDATE 9:32 pm: Tests showed Williams has just a bone bruise. We say “just” but those things hurt. Still, no structural damage and while he will sit out Friday he could be back as soon as Sunday. 4:33 pm: The undefeated Atlanta Hawks will be without starting forward Marvin Williams for Friday’s game against the…
