  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. With only seven players, things somehow get worse for Cavaliers

    Jan 15, 2011, 10:37 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Cavaliers only had eight players available tonight for their game in Denver. Daniel Gibson, Christian Eyenga, Anthony Parker, Anderson Varejao, Joey Graham, and Leon Powe are all out with injuries. The Cavs lost by 50 to the Lakers the other night. Things can’t get worse, right? Mo Williams left the game and went to…

  9. LeBron sits out against Bulls Saturday night

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:34 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    UPDATE 7:35 pm: It’s official, LeBron is out for a second straight game due to his sprained ankle suffered against the Clippers last Wednesday night. This really shouldn’t be a surprise, Miami is expected to be cautious during the regular season when it comes to injuries with its big three. It just puts more on…

  10. ‘Melo says it’s all about winning. Trade to Nets moves closer. Do those two things go together?

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:32 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    It’s getting close. The Nuggets, Nets and Pistons are still negotiating, hammering out the final details of a proposed blockbuster trade, something the Denver Post and multiple other sources are reporting. The details could be finalized the first part of next week, after the Nuggets finish their road trip Sunday night. Then it all falls…

  11. Jermaine O’Neal seeks second opinion before deciding on surgery

    Jan 15, 2011, 6:35 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    I’ve had three family members go through cancer in the last few years. So the fear of an athlete when he goes to a doctor to find out if his season is over or not doesn’t exactly pull as much on my heartstrings as it used to. But just because it pales in comparison to…

  12. Dwight Howard is saying all the right things, which is not good for Orlando

    Jan 15, 2011, 4:35 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    Free agency and the years prior to it will never be the same after “The Decision.”  We heard LeBron James say all the right things. “I love Cleveland.” “I love our fans.” “I would love to win a championship here.” But what was missing was James ever giving the words that would bind him to…

  13. Dirk may return against Grizzlies Saturday

    Jan 15, 2011, 4:30 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    The Mavericks need Dirk Nowitzki back, like for real, like now. And on Saturday, if CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger is on point, they could get him back. Berger reports that Rick Carlisle admitted Saturday they could see the Big German Machine back in action after the Mavericks have lost seven of nine without him, tumbling from…

  14. Stern’s right-hand man says a lockout isn’t inevitable as he plays good cop

    Jan 15, 2011, 2:30 PM EST

    Las Vegas To Host 2007 NBA All-Star Game

    Well, isn’t Adam Silver a ray of sunshine in an otherwise bleak and grey post-apocalyptic CBA negotiating world? Silver spoke to reporters prior to Houston’s game against New Orleans Friday night and as opposed to Commissioner Stern’s devout pessimism and overtly dour stance on the CBA position, Silver painted a much nicer portrait of where things…

  15. How do contending teams perform in the fourth quarter?

    Jan 15, 2011, 12:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Always Be Closing. That’s the name of the game, isn’t it? Great teams close out strong. They finish well together. They’re able to end games with finality. It’s that ability to lock down in the fourth quarter and finish teams off that separates the men from the boys. Young, weak teams can’t get it done,…

  16. Memphis may not blow it up after Conley extension

    Jan 15, 2011, 10:30 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Sacramento Kings

    As we mentioned Friday night, Chris Broussard of ESPN reported Friday night that the Nuggets are not interested in the deal the Knicks were trying to put together which would land them Carmelo Anthony, with O.J. Mayo going to Denver. It’s a major sigh of relief for Grizzlies fans who would have been doubly-screwed in such…

  17. Great news! Even if there’s a lockout Summer League will go on!

    Jan 15, 2011, 8:30 AM EST

    NBA Summer League in Las Vegas

    Sure, the lockout could devastate the league in its biggest year since Jordan retired and leave fans without professional basketball until possibly as late as fall of 2012, but there is some good news. You’ll still get to see fringe NBA players diving across the floor and missing baseline jumpers in half-empty gyms while they…

  18. ‘Melo calls New York the “ultimate dream.” Doesn’t say Brooklyn or Manhattan.

    Jan 14, 2011, 11:15 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    This much has always been clear — Carmelo Anthony wants to play in New York, to come back home to the city he grew up in. He echoed that again to ESPN Friday. “That’s like the ultimate dream at the end of the day,” Anthony said. “Who wouldn’t want to go back home to play?”…

  19. Jason Richardson would rather play for the Chicago Blackhawks

    Jan 14, 2011, 8:40 PM EST

    Jason Richardson, Epke Udoh

    Jason Richardson, who has spent his basketball career in such cold-weather climates as Phoenix and now Orlando, grew up in Saginaw, Michigan. And when he was a kid, he wanted to be…. Jarome Iginla? Or maybe Mario Lemieux? He wanted to play in the NHL more than the NBA. That’s what he told the Orlando…

    Yao Ming

    Here’s the report, courtesy of the Associated Press: HOUSTON – The NBA has granted a disabled player salary exception to the Houston Rockets in the wake of Yao Ming’s latest season-ending injury.
