  1. Like a Bosh, the video

    Nov 17, 2010, 1:57 PM EDT

    The guys at The Basketball Jones are just bloody brilliant. Because nobody could sum up Chris Bosh’s career in rap better than some white guys from Toronto… okay that sounds weird, but it really does work.

  2. Spurs sign Danny Green to deal

    Nov 17, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    danny-green

    The Spurs let Alonzo Gee go, which dropped their roster down to 12 players. League rules require a team to carry 13 players. Hello Danny Green. The Spurs have signed the former Tarheel swingman, according to a tweet from Jeff McDonald of the Express-News. This is really an extended tryout for Green more than anything.…

  3. This time they mean it: Eva Longoria files for divorce from Tony Parker

    Nov 17, 2010, 1:06 PM EDT

    parkerlongoria

    UPDATE 9:13 pm: Tony Parker commented briefly on his divorce before the Spurs game Wednesday night, trying to draw a distinction between his public and private lives. 1: 06 pm: Two days ago her people were denying it up and down, but today the papers were in court — Eva Longoria has filed for divorce…

  4. Thunder winning games, just not expectation game

    Nov 17, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    Durant_Westbrook

    The Oklahoma City Thunder are 6-4, which means they are on pace for about 49 wins this season. Kevin Durant leads the league in scoring. If the playoff started today after an absurdly short regular season, they would be the seven seed in the West. That coming after a season where they won 50 games,…

  5. Anthony Parker’s hustle and flow (and flip)

    Nov 17, 2010, 11:50 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/7aP8IhThSvc?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Anthony Parker made a coach’s play. This is the kind of little thing that gets you more burn next game. The kind of thing a coach remembers more than just another corner three. The Cavaliers are 5-5 and currently your sixth seed in the East because (in part) they are playing hard for Byron Scott.…

  6. His doctor says David Lee’s elbow still looks like he was in a bar brawl

    Nov 17, 2010, 11:08 AM EDT

    DLee_Rebound

    David Lee did what he had been trained to do since junior high — get the rebound. Use your big body, that is your ball. That space this time happened to include Wilson Chandler’s face. And teeth. Which is where Lee’s elbow landed. I know nothing about Chandler’s state of oral hygiene — it’s called…

  7. Dallas’ blueprint for corralling Rajon Rondo

    Nov 17, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    Rondo_Mavs

    Rajon Rondo is playing so well — assisting on half of his team’s baskets when he is on the floor, pitching in 10.8 points per game, playing great defense — that his name is mentioned in early MVP talks. It’s far too premature to talk about that, but Rondo has been amazing at adapting to…

  8. Troy Murphy spends a lot of time on the bench for a guy making $12 million

    Nov 17, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Nets_Murphy

    Troy Murphy is making $12 million this season, the Nets big summer acquisition that was going to bring some scoring punch from the four. He was going to mentor Derrick Favors. He would be a big part of the franchise — for a year, then the franchise would try to go get someone they really…

  9. Billups 75-footer waived off for traveling

    Nov 17, 2010, 8:55 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/KF1MCLLuc2g?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    It was the right call. Which sucks because everyone outside of the five boroughs wants to give him a little something for the effort. But Chauncey Billups did travel before hitting this fantastic shot. But we’re going to show it to you anyway. Because we can.

  10. Lakers shopping for short-term backup center

    Nov 17, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    With Andrew Bynum still a few weeks away, Theo Ratliff out for a month or more after knee surgery, Lamar Odom’s sore foot and so on, the Lakers may be looking for some help. So that Pau Gasol doesn’t have to play 43 minutes, like he did against the Bucks Tuesday. Phil Jackson said the…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where Denver, Portland and Derrick Rose dominate late

    Nov 17, 2010, 5:27 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    What you missed as you were wowed by artistic satellite images of earth… The Lakers offense was an unstoppable force, beating the Bucks in our game of the night… Nuggets 120, Knicks 118: For three-plus quarters this looked like every recent Knicks game — they just don’t have the shooters. You would think they should…

  12. Game of the night: Where the Bucks didn’t want a shootout with the Lakers

    Nov 17, 2010, 4:01 AM EDT

    Corey Maggette, Pau Gasol, Matt Barnes

    This was supposed to be strength-on-strength. Los Angeles versus Milwaukee. The League’s best offense so far (the Lakers) versus the best defense so far (the Bucks). The Lakers were scoring 116.7 points per 100 possessions, the Bucks were giving up just 96.9. Something had to give. The Bucks gave. Not just gave, collapsed. Reverted to…

  13. Stephon Marbury’s world of fantasy, where D’Antoni is on the hot seat

    Nov 16, 2010, 11:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    In Stephon Marbury’s matrix, his thoughts on the Knicks really matter. They do not in any of ours, for us they are pure entertainment from a guy headed to China to play. That said, we like entertainment, so here is what he told the New York Post (just some highlights of a story you should…

  14. George Karl says he wants to coach next season, but health will determine

    Nov 16, 2010, 10:42 PM EDT

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

    In one sense, George Karl is just like Carmelo Anthony, Kenyon Martin and JR Smith — who knows if they will be back with the Nuggets next season. Except Karl is for a refreshingly non-monetary reason, as he told the Associated Press before the game. It’s all about his health. “At the end of the…

  15. One book that will not be a love letter to LeBron

    James_chalk

    Scott Raab of Esquire is harder on LeBron James than just about anyone – when it was announced that LeBron was nominated for the TIME Man of the Year award, he mentioned that Hitler was nominated for it once. Or, you can get a feel for his take on James by reading this latest piece…

  16. Poll: Can any team in the West keep the Lakers from the finals?

    Nov 16, 2010, 8:13 PM EDT

    Lakers_lineup

    The New Orleans Hornets started 8-0. The Dallas Mavericks beat the Hornets (and Boston too) and have looked good. The Spurs have won seven in a row despite a slumping Tim Duncan. The Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns have already done it once in the regular season. Before the season started the consensus was that…

  17. Rodrigue Beaubois inching toward return

    Nov 16, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    roddybeaubois

    The Mavs are faring well without Rodrigue Beaubois, but Dallas’ long-term success is certainly tied to the development of their young, dynamic scoring guard. At one point, Beaubois was aiming for a return by late in the preseason. Then he circled opening night on his calendar. Then the Mavs stopped giving possible timetables altogether, but…

  18. Suns sign Earl Barron to fill in for Robin Lopez

    Nov 16, 2010, 6:14 PM EDT

    Earl Barron

    In an effort to avoid going from the worst defensive rebounding team in the league to the worst defensive rebounding team in the league by an even bigger margin (it’s already pretty sizable), the Phoenix Suns have signed free agent big man Earl Barron to fill in for injured center Robin Lopez. Marc J. Spears…

    Hold your tickets. If you had seats for the Orlando Magic’s visit to Madison Square Garden Nov. 2 — the game cancelled because stuff believed to be asbestos fell from the building ceiling onto the playing surface area — we have your new game information. The contest is set for March 28 at 7:30 p.m.…
