  1. Bucks, Rockets “win” contest for most injured team

    Jan 12, 2011, 1:16 PM EST

    Caron Butler

    So far this season the Milwaukee Bucks have been without key players — such as Andrew Bogut — for 77 man-games due to injury, including 56 to what would be their starting five in an ideal, bubble-wrapped, injury free world. The Rockets are right on their tail with 59 games lost and 51 for starters…

  2. Erik Spoelstra says Heat don’t need to make trades

    Jan 12, 2011, 12:52 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    It’s the time of year when a young fan’s fancy turns to trades… but coach Erik Spoelstra says Heat fans shouldn’t bother. Sounding like a guy whose team has won 21 of 22, Spoelstra said the Heat don’t need to make any trades right now, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. “(Pat Riley)…

  3. ‘Melo gives New Jersey a star, does not make them winners

    Jan 12, 2011, 11:21 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    It’s plainly obvious why New Jersey wants Carmelo Anthony — they need a big star to sell their new Brooklyn home (opening in 2012, didn’t you see the pictures?). You don’t sell those luxury suits when the building’s doors open, you sell them this coming summer, a year out. Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov needs his…

  4. Jerry Sloan swears a lot (and it’s funny)

    When you think funny, cutting edge team videos, the Utah Jazz are not exactly the team that pops to mind. This may be the most button-down organization in the league, with old-school hard-ass Jerry Sloan as coach. Yet there it is. A pretty funny video (via Ball Don’t Lie) put out by the Jazz in…

  5. Chauncey Billups, Rip Hamilton talking about reuniting (and it feel so good)

    Jan 12, 2011, 9:31 AM EST

    NBA Finals Game 3: San Antonio Spurs v Detroit Pistons

    Chauncey Billups and Rip Hamilton won a ring together. Just a few years back they were the heart of one of the league’s elite teams, with Billups directing the show and Hamilton running off screens for mid-range catch-and-shoots. They bonded. They cried together when Billups was traded to Denver (for Allen Iverson, a move that…

  6. LeBron James calls Cleveland 55-point loss “karma”

    Jan 12, 2011, 9:10 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    It was a historic, epic loss by the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night. They didn’t just lose to the Lakers, they were an embarrassment. James Naismith was rolling over in his grave. The final score, 112-57, had people shaking their heads. Except for LeBron James, who tweeted this late Tuesday night: Crazy. Karma is a b****..…

  7. Report: Amar’e Stoudemire reaches out to Carmelo Anthony

    Jan 12, 2011, 8:52 AM EST

    FIBA Semifinals: USA v Puerto Rico

    The New York Knicks and their fans have not given up hope that by March, Carmelo Anthony will be wearing the blue and orange, talking to Spike Lee during warmups and running the floor with Amar’e Stoudemire. Stoudemire wants that too, and he read the quotes earlier this week when Anthony suggested the Knicks may…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The night of the living blowouts

    Jan 12, 2011, 8:11 AM EST

    John Wall

    What you missed while planning to be one of the Joker’s henchmen… The Cavaliers historically bad performance against the Lakers is our Anti-Game of he Night. The Hawks hosting the Bucks was postponed due to snow and will be played on March 15. Wizards 136, Kings 133 (OT): This was more roller coaster than basketball…

  9. Anti-game of the night: Lakers beat Cavaliers by 55 points

    Jan 12, 2011, 1:43 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Samardo Samuels, Andrew Bynum

    So, what happens when the defending two-time champions play the worst team in basketball when the champions are at home and the worst team in basketball has suffered major injuries? One of the worst beatdowns in recent memory. From the opening tip, the Cavaliers never had a chance against the Lakers. Los Angeles started the…

  10. Report: ‘Melo undecided about signing an extension with Nets; says wife not driving choices

    Jan 12, 2011, 1:19 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    At the end of the day, Carmelo Anthony holds the hammer. And he wants to make it clear it is his hammer, not his wife’s. That hammer is in the form of his signature on a three-year, $65 million extension sitting on the table in front of him. Just like it has been since this…

  11. Byron Scott has “no regrets” about taking Cleveland job

    Jan 11, 2011, 10:09 PM EST

    Byron Scott

    Things haven’t gone so well for Byron Scott this year. He took over as head coach of the Cavaliers with no knowledge of whether or not LeBron James was going to return to the team, but he was confident that he could have success whether James stayed or left. LeBron left, of course, and the…

  12. Carmelo Anthony trade delay holding up other deals

    Jan 11, 2011, 8:38 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    There are 15 players — and maybe more — who would be changing teams if the proposed Carmelo Anthony trade moves out of its current state of limbo and becomes reality. That’s a lot of players, and the Anthony trade has become a dam, holding up a number of other smaller trades, according to multiple…

  13. Sacramento Kings to play in “Power Balance” Arena

    Jan 11, 2011, 7:53 PM EST

    Image (1) arco-thumb-250x140-20914.jpg for post 4291

    Well, the arena in Sacramento is older, but starting next year we know it’s less likely to fall over. Maybe. Sactown Royalty broke the story (later confirmed by the team) that as of next season the ARCO Arena will be known as the Power Balance Arena. ARCO had a 25-year naming rights deal that will…

  14. Report: George Karl to return to Nuggets regardless of trade

    Jan 11, 2011, 6:54 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Would you think that George Karl, who will turn 60 next season after 22 years of NBA coaching, might not want to take on a rebuilding project. But apparently he does, telling the team he would stay even if they gut the team as part of the Carmelo Anthony trade, according to Chris Tomasson at…

  15. Stephen A. Smith says Rasheed Wallace will return to Celtics

    Jan 11, 2011, 5:08 PM EST

    Image (1) nba_wallace_250.jpg for post 1262

    UPDATE #2, 5:08 pm: Rasheed Wallace’s agent is now the latest to say his return does not appear likely, although like a good agent should Bill Strickland left the door open a crack when talking to FanHouse: “I don’t think that’s the case — for now anyway,” Strickland told FanHouse. “He has a period of…

  16. Avery Johnson says don’t expect trades during Nets’ road trip

    Jan 11, 2011, 4:41 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Another sign that the Carmelo Anthony trade is not on the fast track… Starting Wednesday night the Nets head out on one of those grueling four-games-in-six-days road trips to the West Coast. Johnson said his roster likely will not be shaken up during the trip. “This is the team that will be playing on the…

  17. Chauncey Billups could play on moon, prefers Denver

    Jan 11, 2011, 3:52 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Denver Nuggets

    Chauncey Billups is a Denver native happily getting to play out the end of his career in his hometown. Well, either that or the swamps of Jersey (and maybe Brooklyn in a couple of years). Billups has been swept up in the momentum of the Carmelo Anthony trade rumors — he would be moved to…

  18. Video: Carmelo Anthony speaks after practice

    Jan 11, 2011, 3:42 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Sacramento Kings

    You may have seen the quotes and read the latest updates, but really, you should hear it from the man himself. Courtesy our friends at NBCNewYork.com (where Josh Alper is killing it) we have video of ‘Melo’s post-practice comments from Tuesday. The interview where he says this is going to take some time and aside…

  19. Report: If not ‘Melo, Knicks to target Marc Gasol this summer

    Jan 11, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    Image (1) marc-gasol-thumb-250x210-17949.jpg for post 3610

    Target number one for the New York Knicks remains Carmelo Anthony. He is their one true love, but with the tide of events pushing Anthony into the arms of the Nets, the Knicks are going to need an ending like The Graduate to kill this marriage (“It’s too late.” “Not for me.”) But if the…

  20. Hawks, Bucks game snowed out

    Jan 11, 2011, 2:23 PM EST

    U.S. South Hit By Crippling Winter Storm

    As we said might happen, due to unusually heavy snows that have essentially shut Atlanta down, the league has decided to postpone the Haws/Bucks game scheduled for Tuesday at Phillips Arena. The game has been rescheduled for March 15 Philips Arena in Atlanta. This is probably the smart move — last night the Bobcats hosted…
