  1. Amid rumors of Devin Harris trade, Nets cancel practice

    Feb 22, 2011, 4:11 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New Jersey Nets

    The Nets don’t have a game until Friday so they have a few practices to integrate… well, guess not. But while the ‘Melodrama has moved on there are plenty of trade rumors swirling around the Nets — particularly around point guard Devin Harris. He is going to Atlanta. Or Portland. Or Dallas. Or… It’s a…

  2. Tyreke Evans out at least three weeks after foot procedure

    Feb 22, 2011, 3:50 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    You know that shock-wave thing your uncle had to break up his kidney stones a decade ago? That’s pretty much what Tyreke Evans had done to his left foot today. And that’s going to keep him out at least three more weeks, according to a tweet from Marc Spears at Yahoo. Evans has been battling…

  3. DeMar DeRozan is done with the prop dunk contest

    Feb 22, 2011, 3:23 PM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    DeMar DeRozan came out and really rocked it last weekend. Not like Lenny Kravitz, we mean in a good way. He came out for the dunk contest Saturday and threw it down old school. Forget the cars and the second backboard and stuffed animals hanging from the rim. He came out and just dunked. He…

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    Congratulations, Mr. Dolan! You’ve landed your prize! You have two, count ‘em two, stars to fill the seats in Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony joins Amar’e Stoudemire for the Knicks and the star power is through the roof now in New York. You have successfully acquired a second NBA All-Star, which is difficult to do…

  5. The scent of an All-Star

    We bring you a brief break from the post ‘Melodrama drama…. To talk about scents. You all know about Unbreakable, the new scent by Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. Heck, you’re probably wearing it right now. Admit it. We won’t think any less of you. What if other players were to start their own line?…

  6. Now what for the Nets? Relax, have a vodka shot, stop with quick fix.

    New Jersey Nets Owner Mikhail Prokhorov Meets with Jay Z

    It’s just not that easy. All the swagger of a Russian billionaire playboy and a hip-hop icon and mogul can not instantly transform an NBA franchise. It cannot get free agents to walk through the door, let alone knock it down. The Nets Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z made a good pitch to LeBron James, but…

  7. Nuggets plan to keep Felton

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:25 PM EST

    image

    Carmelo Anthony’s move to the Big Apple may be taking up all the headline real estate, but Raymond Felton’s departure is also quite notable. He was neither a star nor a New York establishment, but like former-Knicks, now-Nuggets Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, Felton is a quality player and a legitimate starter. However, the Anthony…

  8. With Anthony and Billups, does the Knicks offense really get better?

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:22 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    On a very basic level, the question seems almost absurd. Does the Carmelo Anthony trade make the Knicks offense better? The gut first reaction is “Of course it does. ‘Melo is a scorer going to a system where they just ask guys to get out and score. Match made in heaven.” Then you look at…

  9. PBT Tuesday morning one liners (non-‘Melo trade rumors edition)

    Feb 22, 2011, 12:39 PM EST

    Devin Harris, Zach Randolph, Tony Allen

    The Atlanta Hawks have interest in Devin Harris. They should. They should have interest in any point guard that doesn’t suck. Dallas and Portland also have interest interest in Harris. Cleveland is thinking trades and thinking long-term picture. Terrance Williams wants out of Houston. The Bulls worked out four D-League guys who could step in…

  10. Danilo Gallinari to the…. Clippers?

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:47 AM EST

    Image (1) Gallinari_celebrates-thumb-250x166-20310.jpg for post 6298

    Danilo Gallinari is a Denver Nugget. Right now. Right now, anyway. He came to the Rocky Mountains from the Knicks in the deal that sent Carmelo Anthony to where the bright lights will inspire him. But no source we spoke with expects the Nuggets to hang on to Gallinari. Maybe they should — he is…

  11. Carmelo Anthony has his legacy in his hands in New York

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Carmelo Anthony gets mentioned as one of the game’s elite scorers. As he should. Few players can average 25 points a season consistently. Few players in the league can fill it up — from anywhere on the court, creating their own shot — like Anthony. He doesn’t do it terribly efficiently (his shooting percentage is…

  12. Can the Knicks play any defense now?

    Feb 22, 2011, 10:08 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    The New York Knicks were not a good defensive team on Monday morning — they were 20th in the league giving up 106.3 points per 100 possessions (via Hoopdata). Because they like to run that means giving up an average of 106 points per game, second worst in the league. They were 21st in the…

  13. Carmelo Anthony is gone, who else is Denver likely to move

    Feb 22, 2011, 9:35 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony was just the first domino in Denver. His trade will be followed by host of moves in the next 48 hours — then again next summer — as virtually the entire roster gets overhauled. Denver has from a team that thought it had a chance to push the Lakers to one that is…

  14. Tyreke Evans has another MRI on foot, will sit out Tuesday

    Feb 22, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Tyreke Evans

    After sitting out All-Star weekend, Tyreke Evans foot was still bothering him to the point that he had another MRI done, and is visiting another foot specialist in Los Angeles. That means he will miss Tuesday night’s game against the Heat, according to a tweet from Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee. This will be…

  15. Knicks not contenders with ‘Melo, but they have hope

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:29 AM EST

    FIBA Semifinals: USA v Puerto Rico

    Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. —Shawshank Redemption Today the New York Knicks are not title contenders. They got their man — Carmelo Anthony has been acquired to go with Amar’e Stoudemire. But they are still a long way away from the goal.…

  16. Report: Celtics deal for Shane Battier not happening

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:10 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Phoenix Suns

    Feb. 22, 1:10 am: According to friend of the site A. Sherrod Blakely this trade is not happening. Which makes sense. As we discuss in the post below there just isn’t much the Celtics could really offer that would entice the Rockets — nobody is going to take on Jermaine O’Neal’s deal if they are…

  17. Winderman: ‘Melo trade means Knicks now target Chris Paul, Dwight Howard

    Feb 21, 2011, 11:31 PM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    Don’t even think about exhaling. The trade of Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks does not, finally, put the focus back on the court. Not in today’s NBA, or, more specifically, in tomorrow’s NBA. Think these past months were lessons in abject cruelty in Denver? Then consider what now follows…

  18. Carmelo Anthony traded to Knicks. Finally.

    Feb 21, 2011, 10:26 PM EST

    carmelo anthony

    Carmelo Anthony has been traded to the New York Knicks. Finally. A saga that started this summer when Anthony and his representatives told Denver officials he would opt out of his contract and leave as a free agent if not traded — and that he would only sign an extension with the Knicks — has…

  19. Report: Nuggets coach George Karl likes the Knicks deal best

    Feb 21, 2011, 8:41 PM EST

    Image (1) anthony_Karl-thumb-250x181-21662.jpg for post 6222

    Coaches often make the worst general managers. They are notoriously bad at structuring trades. Coaches fall in love with players they think give them the best chance of winning right now. GM’s need to think big picture. So not all that surprising that while the Nuggets brass prefers the promise of Derrick Favors and picks…

  20. It’s official, Joakim Noah to play for Bulls Wednesday

    Feb 21, 2011, 7:05 PM EST

    Joakim Noah told us this was the target date weeks ago, but now it is official. Noah will return when the Bulls take on the Raptors Wednesday, coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed to ESPN Chicago. Nothing shocking here, but it’s not official. The Bulls went 22-8 in the 30 games Noah sat out, but make no…
