    air-jordan-2011-3

    Michael Jordan hasn’t suited up for an NBA game in seven seasons, and it’s been a dozen since anything meaningful (sorry Wizards fans). Yet Jordan and the Air Jordan line still have a virtual monopoly on the basketball shoe market. So we bring you this sneak peak at the 2011 version — courtesy Counterkicks —…

    Dec 13, 2010, 1:15 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where if it were a seven-game series we’d take any of the next three teams below Dallas to come out on top, but when you win 12 in a row you get to keep the top spot. 1. Mavericks (19-4). They’ve won an even dozen in a row now. In…

    Teams are shooting 68.3 percent at the rim against the Phoenix Suns this season, the second highest percentage in the league. The other teams in the top five? Sacramento, Washington, Detroit and Minnesota. Four other teams you don’t want to be mentioned in the same sentence with. The return of Robin Lopez to protecting the…

  4. Ball boy humbles Terrence Williams, gets him headed right direction

    Dec 13, 2010, 11:24 AM EST

    Terrence Williams

    Terrence Williams got a timeout in the D-League recently, sent down as a wake up call to start showing up to practice and shootarounds on time. The Nets turned the D-League into the equivalent of sending your kid to your room. But that’s not what got through to him, it was a ball boy, a…

    When Carmelo Anthony stepped on the court at Madison Square Garden Sunday, announced as part of the visiting team, cheers rained down on him like he was Willis Reed.

  7. Baseline to Baseline Weekend Edition: The hits just keep on coming

    Dec 13, 2010, 9:34 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    What happened while you were falling backwards into the endzone…. Friday Bulls 88 Lakers 84: I’m just saying. At some point, maybe, if the Lakers are in a one-possession game with less than 40 seconds remaining, two-for-one or no, maybe the Lakers should work for a quality shot instead of giving Kobe Bryant the ball…

    Russell Westbrook, Eric Maynor

    Even the fans in Oklahoma City were shooting better than the Cleveland Cavaliers, who were in town to take on the Thunder. Robert Yanders hit a halfcourt shot to win $20,000 at the Thunder game Sunday. The Cavaliers shot 33.8 percent as a team. We’re just sayin’. Looking at my Christmas shopping list, I could…

    Dec 13, 2010, 8:40 AM EST

    John Wall Practice Dance

    John Wall’s sweat does not come cheaply on the open market. Particularly when said sweat is attached to the jersey he wore in his first game as a pro. This season the NBA opened up a site auctioning off game-worn jerseys from this season, with the money going to charity. Among the items up for…

    Remember how last week Tyreke Evans said he was going to see a foot specialist, which doesn’t sound good? But then the MRI came back and it was all just a mild case of plantar fasciitis. Which hurts like someone was stabbing your heel with every step — but no fracture, so yea!! The pain…

    Dec 12, 2010, 10:13 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant with Michael Jordan

    In a story that’s sure to invite no comments below, Avery Johnson today essentially said he believes Kobe Bryant to be “as great” as Michael Jordan. From the New York Post: “[Bryant] could arguably be 1. In some polls, he’ll be 2,” the Nets coach said yesterday about the players he has seen since he…

    Phoenix Suns v Orlando Magic

    With the season now in full swing, teams are starting to think they need to make a move. There’s a feeling that maybe someone else could help your team.

  14. Nets rookie Damion James out with broken foot

    Dec 12, 2010, 2:31 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Avery Johnson has been trying to see what his young players have got, and so Damion James has been getting some run — at least 15 minutes in 8 of the last 9. Not that he has been giving them a not of production — 35 percent shooting and too many turnovers, but the rebounding…

    Dec 12, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

  16. J.J. Hickson: From savior to trade bait in 30 days

    Dec 12, 2010, 10:45 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    When the season started for the Cavaliers, it was all about J. J. Hickson. He was the young buck power forward, physical and tough, who would lead them into the future. He was underhyped, overproducing, basically everything LeBron James wasn’t. Now just a month into the season, Hickson is on the block. The News-Herald reports…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    “I don’t think any of us can speak frankly about pain until we are no longer enduring it.” -Arthur Golden. My wife’s biggest problem with being pregnant has nothing to do with the nausea. She’s not bothered by her increasing lack of balance, nor the fact that she now craves fried food as if she…

    Dec 11, 2010, 9:55 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

    Our first quarter is over, so it’s time for that time honored cliche, first quarter MVPs, which usually have nothing to do with four-quarter MVPs. But instead, for our Saturday Starting Five, we’ll be covering those players who haven’t lived up to what their teams have needed, or paid, them to be. Sure, there are…
