  1. Report: Anthony Randolph requests trade from Knicks

    Jan 17, 2011, 4:22 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Milwaukee Bucks

    The Knicks have reportedly been shopping Anthony Randolph around, seeking a first-round pick they could use in Carmleo Anthony trade. Of course, it’s looking more and more likely that there will not be a ‘Melo trade for the Knicks as the Nets have become clear front runners (if owner Mikhail Prokhorov can get ‘Melo to…

  2. LeBron, Wade, Bosh all sit out Heat practice

    Jan 17, 2011, 3:18 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    What would the Justice League look like without any of its Super Friends? What would the Miami Heat look like without any of their big three? The Cleveland Cavaliers? Worse? It is possible — if unlikely — that we find out Tuesday night. Monday afternoon Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James all sat out…

  3. Garnett says Celtics should learn lesson from Patriots loss

    Jan 17, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    You’d think fine people in Boston would be used to losing sporting events to teams from New York by now. But apparently not as most of New England is in stunned silence about the Patriots loss to the loudmouth New York Jets on Saturday. Kevin Garnett, writing on his blog in China (for his shoe…

  4. NBA Power Rankings, the mid-season report edition

    Jan 17, 2011, 2:04 PM EST

    Shawn Marion,  Tim Duncan

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, with a focus on the first half of the season and what to look forward to. So for you Cavs fans, we should start talking draft. 1. Spurs (35-6). Well, that first half couldn’t have gone much better. We knew the Spurs would be good, they always are, but one…

  5. Blake Griffin, Lamar Odom ejected after tussle over hustle

    Jan 17, 2011, 12:33 PM EST

    James Capers, Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, Randy Foye, Ryan Gomes, Blake Griffin

    The game was over, in any real sense of the word. It was 99-90 Clippers with 5.7 seconds left. Randy Foye would shoot his free throws, the Lakers would dribble out the clock and the Clippers would have beaten their second elite team in a week. But it didn’t end quietly. As Foye shot and…

  6. Tyrus Thomas suspended for elbowing Emeka Okafor’s face

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:46 AM EST

    Tyrus Thomas

    With two and a half minutes left in the Bobcats loss Saturday to the Hornets, Tyrus Thomas went up for a rebound, came down with the ball and his elbows out, then, in trying to create space, swung his left elbow directly into the face of Emeka Okafor. He got the flagrant two foul for…

  7. Video: Turns out, Lou Williams can rap

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:29 AM EST

    Lou Williams Jumper

    There are no shortage of NBA players who think they are rappers (and no shortage of MCs who think they can ball). Usually, this ends in disaster. Right, Kobe? But the Sixers sixth man Lou Williams…. not bad. Not bad at all.

  8. John Wall’s injuries holding him back

    Jan 17, 2011, 10:47 AM EST

    Kevin Love, John Wall

    John Wall has been solid — he’s averaging 15.3 points and 8.9 assists per game — but he has not been what everyone hoped. We expected a guy who was going to be the next great point guard in the league and to show that from day one, but he plays like a guy still…

  9. Trailer for Kobe’s Nike movie leaked

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:55 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    He plays in Los Angeles, it was just a matter of time before the acting bug bit Kobe Bryant. He just won’t have to wait tables at California Pizza Kitchen while he waits for his big break. Bryant and director Robert Rodriguez (“Sin City,” “Spy Kids”) have teamed up to make a full-fledged movie for…

  10. Rudy Fernandez loves Portland and doesn’t want to be traded. Why would you think that?

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:14 AM EST

    Rudy Fernandez

    Rudy Fernandez loves Portland. Loves playing basketball there. He told the Oregonian he doesn’t want to be traded he just wants to keep on being a Blazers. Why would you think otherwise? Oh yea, this summer when his agent demanded a trade and even threatened a holdout at one point. Fernandez’s people demanding a trade…

  11. Carlos Boozer out Monday with sprained ankle

    Jan 17, 2011, 8:52 AM EST

    Carlos Boozer, Antawn Jamison

    While we were all listening to Chris Bosh whine about his ankle being sprained, Carlos Boozer walked out of the United Center Thursday night with a boot over his left foot due to a sprained ankle. Boozer will be out Monday afternoon when they take on the Grizzlies, according to Sam Smith on Bulls.com. If…

  12. Weekend Baseline to Baseline: Up, down, and all around

    Jan 17, 2011, 8:00 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    Friday Night Hornets 110 Rockets 105 (OT): A fun little romp, but also yet another in a seemingly endless case of Houston working hard in a mad scientist’s lab to discover new ways to lose games. This time it was letting David West take over down the stretch, then playing zero defense in the extra…

  13. Carmelo Anthony: “I don’t want to talk to nobody.”

    Jan 17, 2011, 4:18 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    As we told you previously, Carmelo Anthony has been offered freedom to talk to the New Jersey Nets about going East as part of a massive three-team trade… Except, for the record, he doesn’t want to talk to anyone. That’s what he said Sunday night, as reported by the Denver Post. “I don’t want to…

  14. Nets granted permission to speak with Melo

    Jan 16, 2011, 9:51 PM EST

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    Throughout this entire, bizarre process, there have been some who kept questioning if any of this was true or just a fabrication of the New York media. After all, Carmelo Anthony never said he wanted to be traded from the Nuggets. And technically that could still be true. But a big piece fell into place…

  15. Kevin Garnett set to return Monday against Magic

    Jan 16, 2011, 6:30 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic

    The Celtics have been struggling without their defensive and emotional leader, Kevin Garnett, since he was sidelined with a calf injury (which looked a lot worse at first glance). Garnett provides them offensive balance in the post as well as his patented defensive lunacy. He’s been expected back for about a week now, but of…

  16. There is literally no end to Donald Sterling’s audacity

    Jan 16, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    City of Hope's Music and Entertainment Industry's Spirit of Life Gala

    Okay, it’s an NBA owners meeting sometime last year. You’re Donald Sterling. I’ll wait while you vomit at that idea. Okay, you’re Donald Sterling. You are certifiably the worst owner in the history of professional sports. In addition to being an alleged slum lord, an alleged racist, having been alleged as having committed sexual harassment…

  17. Michael Jordan’s feasting table consists of the ruin of his opponents. Kinda.

    Jan 16, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    Michael Jordan has to live on the coolest stuff. Because he’s Michael Jordan. So it should come as no surprise that his dining room table? It now serves as a reminder of every point he scored in the NBA. From TBD: Nevertheless, Sirvet, a local sculptor who works in metal, knew that he would be…

  18. Phil Jackson’s not drinking the Kool-aid just yet

    Jan 16, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    From the Los Angeles Times: “I’m not comfortable with either of the two games (Sunday) or Monday,” Jackson said Saturday at the Lakers’ facility in El Segundo. “It’s why we had a practice today. We’re concerned. We didn’t think we played well last night, but we got away with a win anyway. There’s a natural…

  19. Paul Millsap, the model for offensive improvement

    Jan 16, 2011, 10:00 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Golden State Warriors

    From the Salt Lake Tribune: Millsap attributes his improvement to “just knowing the offense,” saying that expanding his offensive game was a product of studying Jazz power forwards of the past, Karl Malone and Boozer. Actual shooting practice is also a big part of the equation. “He recognized where the shots were going to come…

  20. Chris Bosh leaves game with sprained ankle; not considered serious

    Jan 16, 2011, 7:50 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Chris Bosh left the Miami Heat’s game against the Bulls Saturday in the fourth quarter and did not return to action. Postgame X-rays showed no damage and the sprain is considered not serious, according to ESPN, but he likely will have an MRI soon just to confirm that. No word on whether or not he…
