  1. Arenas avoids jail time

    Mar 26, 2010, 4:53 PM EDT

    UPDATE 7:08 pm: Gilbert Arenas’ lawyer, Ken Wainstein, released this statement: “Judge Morin’s decision was fair and measured; it reflected a deep understanding of the relevant facts … Mr. Arenas is grateful to the court and looks forward to serving the community and once again being a force for good in the District of Columbia.”…

  2. Steve Nash's assist to high-five ratio way off

    Mar 26, 2010, 3:10 PM EDT

    This is so why I need an intern, so I can assign them trivial, labor intensive and mildly entertaining tasks. Like tracking the number of high fives Steve Nash gives in a game. I assure you, your guess is too low.

  3. No sympathy for Turkoglu in Toronto

    Mar 26, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    It’s really not hard to follow the line of thinking: Hedo Turkoglu was the big off-season acquisition for Toronto; Toronto has had a horrible season that is crumbling right as the playoffs start; ergo, Turkoglu the problem Doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. It’s easy logic, and we like easy. So when Turkoglu had…

  4. LeBron says he could win the scoring title if he wanted. Is that news?

    Mar 26, 2010, 1:42 PM EDT

    In post game comments after the Cavaliers win last night, LeBron James said something that has gotten picked up by the media and blogsphere to day. We’ll take Brett Pollakoff’s version from FanHouse (because he and I think alike on this): “If I really wanted to,” James said, “if I really wanted to be the…

  5. Wade, Andy Roddick to play H-O-R-S-E, tennis doubleheader

    Mar 26, 2010, 12:46 PM EDT

    I firmly believe Dwyane Wade can do anything. Why, just a few years ago I saw him carry Shaquille O’Neal and the Heat to an NBA title. He makes the MyTouch phones look as cool as an iPhone. Almost. He can leap tall buildings in a single bound, or at least he can leap Anderson…

  6. Jefferson not shy in his praise of Howard

    Mar 26, 2010, 12:37 PM EDT

    In the NBA (and all professional sports for that matter), players have a fine line to walk when discussing their opponents. Don’t give them enough credit, and they feel wronged and the comments become bulletin board material. Give them too much credit, and there’s a perceived psychological shift and the comments become bulletin board material.…

  7. Great news: West's season has been quiet

    Mar 26, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Delonte West is completely unique in every conceivable way. Beyond his personality, though, West’s life has some equally unique — at least by NBA standards — challenges; West was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a fact which became public in the aftermath of a pretty bizarre incident involving West, a motorcycle, and three guns. The memory…

  8. New Nets owner not exactly Internet savvy

    Mar 26, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    NBA players are products of their generation — they communicate heavily via text and send emails, all from their cell phone. Often doing it while at a VIP table in the back of a bar while drinking Gray Goose. New Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov may find it a challenge to relate to his players (via…

  9. OMG Gentry luvs 2 text

    Mar 26, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Alvin Gentry is the king of social media among NBA coaches. Which is a very, very small hill to climb — can you really picture Phil Jackson trying to fit his comments in 140 characters? But credit Gentry, he’s on top of it. In addition to having his own twitter account, he’s a texter, he…

  10. Nowitzki doesn't really understand ejection

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:54 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki is no Rasheed Wallace. Rasheed does not appreciate the subtle musical mastery of David Hasselhoff. Nowitzki rarely says anything to referees that will get him a technical. He did Tuesday night, getting two quick ones from Bill Kennedy and getting tossed. Nowitzki tells the Star Telegram he doesn’t know exactly what he did.…

  11. Paul Allen issues statement, says nothing

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    UPDATE 10:13 am: The Oregonian’s John Canzano tried to get more information out of Paul Allen last night. Didn’t go so well. But I asked him at the end of the first half, as he headed into the room he uses as an office, if he’d mind going stronger with the comments on Pritchard. The…

  12. Steve Kerr may stick around in Phoenix

    Mar 26, 2010, 9:52 AM EDT

    Steve Kerr’s first couple months on the job in Phoenix in 2008 really can only be called an unmitigated disaster — the Shaquille O’Neal trade, sending Mike D’Antoni away and trying to take a team that was a title contender and change it on the fly. Bad idea jeans. But things are better now —…

  13. Colangelo: Individual agendas hurt Raptors

    Mar 26, 2010, 8:54 AM EDT

    Toronto is a bad team. Have been for more than a month. The Raptors would have fallen out of the playoffs by now if the Bulls were worse. Since the All-Star Game, Toronto is 6-12. General Manager Brian Colangelo told Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star that individual agendas have gotten in the way of…

  14. Heat make D-League call-up

    Mar 26, 2010, 8:17 AM EDT

    Looking to add a little front-line depth, the Miami Heat today will call up maybe the most promising big man in the D-League, Alade Aminu. Ridiculous Upside broke the story, adding that since a mid-season trade to Bakersfield Aminu has averaged 19.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. It was expected someone would…

  15. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 26, 2010, 3:07 AM EDT

    What you missed while watching Gus Johnson go Gus Johnson… Heat 103, Bulls 74: Miami’s offense looked great. Chicago’s game plan — a very logical one — was to take Dwyane Wade out, do not let him beat you with his shot. So he passed, and finished with 10 assists. The Heat pounded the soft…

  16. Price set for sale of Wizards, Verizon Center

    Mar 25, 2010, 7:22 PM EDT

    Unlike the sale 3,000 miles away in the Bay Area, there are no real secrets about the sale of the Washington Wizards. When owner Abe Pollin died it was already agreed his estate was going to try to sell the team and the building to Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis. Today they cleared one of…

  17. Bucks sign Darnell Jackson

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:51 PM EDT

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski’s legendary twitter feed, the Milwaukee Bucks have signed recently waived Cavaliers forward Darnell Jackson. Jackson is a solidly built forward who played four years at Kansas, winning a national championship with the team in 2008. He showed promise in his rookie season with the Cavaliers, but was out of the rotation…

  18. Prokhorov to appear on "60 Minutes"

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:32 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov might be the enigmatic billionaire who will save the Nets. He’s a Russian Oligarch. He’s been described as a “wild child.” He once spent $19,000 on a lunch. He does tricks on a jet ski. He’s been called the “Russian Mark Cuban,” although that label might be restrictive. Soon, American audiences will have…

  19. Tyreke Evans out at least two more games

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans — the guy who should be rookie of the year, sorry Jennings — is going to miss the Kings only visits this year to Cleveland and Boston. That is on doctor’s orders. Evans suffered a concussion back on March 19 against the Bucks and is still feeling the effects of that, as reported…

  20. Is Kevin Durant having the best free-throw shooting season ever?

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

    The free throw line is the easiest place to get points in the NBA. However, there’s a bit of a paradox inherent in free-throw shooting. The guys who get to the line the most — gigantic centers like Dwight Howard and Shaq, along with bruising perimeter players — tend to be the worst free-throw shooters…
