    It was the right call. Which sucks because everyone outside of the five boroughs wants to give him a little something for the effort. But Chauncey Billups did travel before hitting this fantastic shot. But we’re going to show it to you anyway. Because we can.

  2. Lakers shopping for short-term backup center

    With Andrew Bynum still a few weeks away, Theo Ratliff out for a month or more after knee surgery, Lamar Odom’s sore foot and so on, the Lakers may be looking for some help. So that Pau Gasol doesn’t have to play 43 minutes, like he did against the Bucks Tuesday. Phil Jackson said the…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where Denver, Portland and Derrick Rose dominate late

    Nov 17, 2010, 5:27 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    What you missed as you were wowed by artistic satellite images of earth… The Lakers offense was an unstoppable force, beating the Bucks in our game of the night… Nuggets 120, Knicks 118: For three-plus quarters this looked like every recent Knicks game — they just don’t have the shooters. You would think they should…

  4. Game of the night: Where the Bucks didn’t want a shootout with the Lakers

    Nov 17, 2010, 4:01 AM EST

    Corey Maggette, Pau Gasol, Matt Barnes

    This was supposed to be strength-on-strength. Los Angeles versus Milwaukee. The League’s best offense so far (the Lakers) versus the best defense so far (the Bucks). The Lakers were scoring 116.7 points per 100 possessions, the Bucks were giving up just 96.9. Something had to give. The Bucks gave. Not just gave, collapsed. Reverted to…

  5. Stephon Marbury’s world of fantasy, where D’Antoni is on the hot seat

    Nov 16, 2010, 11:45 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    In Stephon Marbury’s matrix, his thoughts on the Knicks really matter. They do not in any of ours, for us they are pure entertainment from a guy headed to China to play. That said, we like entertainment, so here is what he told the New York Post (just some highlights of a story you should…

  6. George Karl says he wants to coach next season, but health will determine

    Nov 16, 2010, 10:42 PM EST

    Image (1) anthony_Karl-thumb-250x181-21662.jpg for post 6222

    In one sense, George Karl is just like Carmelo Anthony, Kenyon Martin and JR Smith — who knows if they will be back with the Nuggets next season. Except Karl is for a refreshingly non-monetary reason, as he told the Associated Press before the game. It’s all about his health. “At the end of the…

  7. One book that will not be a love letter to LeBron

    James_chalk

    Scott Raab of Esquire is harder on LeBron James than just about anyone – when it was announced that LeBron was nominated for the TIME Man of the Year award, he mentioned that Hitler was nominated for it once. Or, you can get a feel for his take on James by reading this latest piece…

  8. Poll: Can any team in the West keep the Lakers from the finals?

    Nov 16, 2010, 8:13 PM EST

    Lakers_lineup

    The New Orleans Hornets started 8-0. The Dallas Mavericks beat the Hornets (and Boston too) and have looked good. The Spurs have won seven in a row despite a slumping Tim Duncan. The Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns have already done it once in the regular season. Before the season started the consensus was that…

  9. Rodrigue Beaubois inching toward return

    Nov 16, 2010, 6:50 PM EST

    roddybeaubois

    The Mavs are faring well without Rodrigue Beaubois, but Dallas’ long-term success is certainly tied to the development of their young, dynamic scoring guard. At one point, Beaubois was aiming for a return by late in the preseason. Then he circled opening night on his calendar. Then the Mavs stopped giving possible timetables altogether, but…

  10. Suns sign Earl Barron to fill in for Robin Lopez

    Nov 16, 2010, 6:14 PM EST

    Earl Barron

    In an effort to avoid going from the worst defensive rebounding team in the league to the worst defensive rebounding team in the league by an even bigger margin (it’s already pretty sizable), the Phoenix Suns have signed free agent big man Earl Barron to fill in for injured center Robin Lopez. Marc J. Spears…

  11. New date asbestos Knicks/Magic game set

    Hold your tickets. If you had seats for the Orlando Magic’s visit to Madison Square Garden Nov. 2 — the game cancelled because stuff believed to be asbestos fell from the building ceiling onto the playing surface area — we have your new game information. The contest is set for March 28 at 7:30 p.m.…

  12. Updated Report: Tony Parker and Eva Longoria divorce back on

    UPDATE 11/17, 9:45 am: And now it is all back on, she has filed divorce papers. UPDATE 5:26 pm: TMZ is now backtracking from the story. 4:46 pm: Basketball’s most famous second most famous couple have filed for divorce, according to TMZ as rumors swirl that Tony Parker and Eva Longoria are on the outs.…

  13. What really matters is the Heat are blowing out bad teams. Seriously.

    Nov 16, 2010, 4:12 PM EST

    Heat_handgesture

    It’s an interesting NBA statistical trend — how many 15 points blowout wins a team gets a season is a better indicator of how they will do in the playoffs than how many less-than-5-point wins they gutted out. It’s counter-intuitive, good teams are supposed to win close games, right? We’ve been told that forever. But…

  14. Iguodala, still nursing Achilles, will sit Tuesday against Cavaliers

    Nov 16, 2010, 3:07 PM EST

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala has a lingering right Achilles tendon issue that has kept him out of a couple of games and some practices lately. You can add Tuesday night’s Sixers/Cavaliers matchup to the list. He had to leave practice early because of soreness Monday and will now sit out Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. Andres…

  15. Tim Duncan slumping because his midrange game has deserted him

    Nov 16, 2010, 2:36 PM EST

    Duncan_followthrough

    Tim Duncan has not scored in double digits for three straight games. For Duncan, that is career first. It’s shocking. The guy is an automatic double-double machine, one of the best basketball players walking the face of the earth — even if people don’t know his name. But this season he has been off, and…

  16. Lakers’ Theo Ratliff has knee surgery, out 4-6 weeks

    Nov 16, 2010, 2:05 PM EST

    Ratliff_Laker

    Theo Ratliff was supposed to be some insurance for the Lakers, a veteran big man they could use a few minutes a game until Andrew Bynum returned, a guy who could get rebounds and body up (read: foul) opposing bigs in some matchups. But not for the next month or so. Ratliff had his knee…

  17. Mark Cuban and Miami Heat schadenfreude

    Nov 16, 2010, 1:02 PM EST

    Image (1) cuban-thumb-250x166-11958.jpg for post 2059

    Mark Cuban may not know what the word schadenfreude means, but he knows the feeling. This what he said to ESPN Radio Dallas (via Sports Radio Interviews). “Hallelujah, boys, is that great or what? … How cool is that? Now, they could still turn it around and win out for all that matters, but you’re…

  18. Mike D’Antoni isn’t going anywhere. Right now, anyway.

    Nov 16, 2010, 12:37 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni

    By and large, Knicks fans bought in to what team president Donnie Walsh was selling about Mike D’Antoni — you couldn’t judge him on the first two seasons. The roster had to be gutted to clear out cap space. He didn’t have the players to win regardless of system. This is the first season you…

  19. Dysfunction in Detroit: Tayshaun Prince and coach John Kuester have words. Again.

    Nov 16, 2010, 12:19 PM EST

    Kuester_huddle

    If the NBA has a soap opera this season, it may be set in Detroit. Monday night came the most public of this season’s spectacles — Tayshaun Prince and coach John Kuester had words on the bench. Very public, very heated words. Kuester had pulled Prince in the second quarter for feeling he had not…

  20. David Stern takes on Colbert Nation

    Nov 16, 2010, 11:32 AM EST

    You think Bud Selig would go on the Colbert Report? If for no other reason, that’s why you have to love David Stern — he can go on a show designed to mock, hold his own and get his point across. The man’s gift as a negotiator and public speaker is undeniable. No new ground…
