  1. On the pseudo-campaigning for LeBron James as Defensive Player of the Year

    Nov 3, 2010, 5:12 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    The media megaphone gives NBA players, coaches, front office officials, and owners a chance to call and respond. We’ve seen players poke at one another both jokingly and pointedly, coaches attempt to jar their players, opponents take shots from across the wall, and almost every conceivable combination of parties make comments of every ilk. In…

    Kevin Garnett has responded to Charlie Villanueva’s claim that Garnett called him a “cancer patient” during Tuesday night’s game. In a statement released through the Celtics, Garnett denies making the statement. “I am aware there was a major miscommunication regarding something I said on the court last night. My comment to Charlie Villanueva was in…

  3. Kevin Garnett talks trash. The league should do nothing about it.

    Nov 3, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    If you’ve ever sat near the court for a Kevin Garnett Celtics game, you know this — the man talks a lot of trash. A lot. Some genuinely nasty, personal stuff. He uses it to intimidate and to fire himself up. Charlie Villanueva thought KG crossed the line last night and called him on it,…

  4. Rashad McCants’ future with the Legends still uncertain

    Nov 3, 2010, 3:38 PM EDT

    Rashad McCants

    Nothing is ever easy with Rashad McCants. After spending last season outside the NBA looking in, McCants signed a non-guaranteed contract with Dallas late in the preseason, and was cut almost immediately after. From a media perspective, the Mavericks’ intentions seemed rather obvious. However, McCants reportedly was told he would have a chance to make…

  5. Pistons would “strongly consider” trading Rip Hamilton for Josh Smith. Ya think?

    The Detroit Pistons have not looked good. At all. They are 0-4 and sniping at each other and the coach already. Things are going to change in Detroit. One way or another (especially with the coming ownership change) — either there will be a lot more wins or a roster shakeup. Now enter all the…

  6. A 200-word summation of Michael Beasley, by Kevin Love

    Nov 3, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Kevin Love, cult icon, borderline religious figure, and rebounding savant, has begun blogging for GQ. These are exciting times. In Love’s second post, he introduces those surely to be blog regulars: his teammates. Jonny Flynn, Darko Milicic, and Wesley Johnson area all introduced to Love’s audience, but his true masterwork as a writer to date…

  7. Carlos Boozer gets cast off, still expected back at end of the month

    When Carlos Boozer fractured his hand — he just tripped over a bag, stop asking! — it was expected he would be out until the end of November. Today he got his cast off, which means he should be back… about the end of November. Sometimes those predictions are pretty accurate (unless Andrew Bynum or…

  8. The good, and the so bad it’s ugly surprises of the NBA season

    Nov 3, 2010, 12:31 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    We’re a week into the NBA season and some things are what we expected — the Lakers, Heat and Celtics are good; the Sixers are not; John Wall is dynamic; Kobe won’t talk about his injuries; and the Grizzles are making bad contract decisions. But there are surprises, and not to go all Forest Gump…

  9. Antawn Jamison’s knee becoming a bigger issue

    Nov 3, 2010, 11:03 AM EDT

    Antawn Jamison did not play for the Cavaliers Tuesday night in a loss to Atlanta, resting a gimpy left knee that has bothered him since the start of training camp. That’s not good on a few levels. It’s not good for a Cavaliers team that has now fallen to 1-3 on the young season. The…

  10. Coach calls 0-4 Pistons out. Prince says “right back at ya.”

    Nov 3, 2010, 10:08 AM EDT

    Kuester_yells

    Unfortunately for the Pistons, the new season has picked up right where the old one left off — lots of injuries and losses. And now, the infighting. After the Pistons were manhandled by the Boston Celtics Wednesday, coach John Kuester called out his players for a lack of leadership, as reported by the Detroit Free…

  11. Kobe Bryant tells Coach K he’ll be there in London if wanted

    Nov 3, 2010, 9:28 AM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Mike Krzyzewski is all about recruiting. College basketball ultimately is about recruiting, and you don’t get to Coach K’s status without being very good at it. He’s already started recruiting — and landing top players — for his side gig as USA Basketball head coach for the 2012 Olympics in London. First up, Kobe Bryant,…

  12. John Wall dougies his way to 29 and 13

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/rL5_pS9sUJ0?version=3" height="204" width="320" /]

    The reason to watch this is to watch NBA rookie John Wall do the dougie during introductions. Oh, he’s pretty good at the basketball thing, too.  

  13. Charlie Villanueva says Garnett called him a “cancer patient,” and CV is ready to fight

    Nov 3, 2010, 8:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    Kevin Garnett talks a lot of smack on the court, sometimes going a little over the top with it all. The Piston’s Charlie Villanueva has had enough and tweeted about it after the game. KG talks a lot of crap, he’s prob never been in a fight, I would love to get in a ring…

  14. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Where the Lakers, Heat and Celtics dominate.

    What you missed while you were watching the election results roll in, then drinking to celebrate or drown your sorrows… Sixers at the Wizards — better known as No. 1 John Wall vs. No. 2 Evan Turner — was our game of the night, get the details here. Magic at the Knicks was postponed due…

  15. Game of the Night: John Wall vs. Evan Turner turns out to be about Andray Blatche

    Nov 3, 2010, 3:43 AM EDT

    Wall_celebrates

    We tuned in to see John Wall matched up on Evan Turner — and we got a little of that late in the game. But it ended up being about a lot more. It ended up being about Andray Blatche finding the guy from the end of last season. It ended up being about whether…

  16. NBA Players Halloween costumes

    Nov 2, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/xsuCot4ge7U?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    The NBA was kind enough to put together a montage of the, um, best of them. Maybe best isn’t the word, but they are plenty scary. And not all in a good, Halloween way. Enjoy.

  17. Clippers Craig Smith to appeal flagrant II foul, any fines. He shouldn’t.

    Nov 2, 2010, 8:45 PM EDT

    GHill_injured

    Word comes from the twitter account of Lisa Dillman at the Los Angeles Times that the Clippers Craig Smith is going to appeal his flagrant II foul and any fines that come from the league from his tackling of George Hill last night. If you didn’t see the highlight, Rhino lived up to his nickname…

  18. Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley says he got his man with Conley deal

    Nov 2, 2010, 8:09 PM EDT

    Most of us have been pretty dumbfounded by the Mike Conley five-year extension by the Grizzlies. Grizzlies’ owner Michael Heisley is good with it. He got the man he and his coach wanted, as he told FanHouse. “If you go back and look at Mike Conley the last month of last year, he really came…

  19. Durant none to thrilled with Thunder’s defense

    Nov 2, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    Image (1) durant.jpg for post 425

    There are certain players and certain teams where what happens at one end of the floor really impacts what happens at the other end. When the offense goes sideways, the defense follows suit. The Oklahoma City Thunder did that over the weekend when the Jazz blew them out. And Kevin Durant told the team reporter…

  20. Amar’e Stoudemire can’t try to carry the weight of the Knicks by himself

    Nov 2, 2010, 5:17 PM EDT

    Stoudemire_knicks

    Amar’e Stoudemire is the face of the Knicks franchise, but he has to stop carrying the weight of it himself. That’s basically what Mike D’Antoni told Newsday — Stoudemire has been trying to do too much. “I think he’s trying to do a little too much,” D’Antoni said. “We talked about it. Just slow it…
