  1. Calderon may become Toronto starter

    Mar 15, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    Toronto plays no defense. That is what gets them beat. That is why they have lost five straight games and have fallen to eighth in the East (and would be out entirely if not for the Bulls recent play). Wanted that to be clear so one person isn’t blamed for the woes. But Jarret Jack…

  2. Carmelo Anthony to Los Angeles (sort of)

    Mar 15, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Ladies and gentlemen, start your speculation: Carmelo Anthony bought a home in Los Angeles. It’s nicer than that cave you live in, by the way. Anthony and fiancé LaLa Vazquez own the home and may live in it in the off-season. A lot of players live in LA in the off-season – great weather, plenty…

  3. Indiana gets creative with injuries

    Mar 15, 2010, 10:41 AM EDT

    To have a season crash and burn as badly as Indiana’s has recently, you have to have some creativity. You can’t just have a players that don’t mesh with the system or the usual rash of knee and ankle injuries. You have to do better than that. Mike Dunleavy knows this, so he got creative.…

  4. Don't boo, Portland — be thankful

    Mar 15, 2010, 10:16 AM EDT

    Last summer, there was deal was in place to bring Hedu Turkoglu and his stretch four game to the Portland Trail Blazers — he was to be team’s next step in evolving into a Western Conference Power. You all saw what he did in the playoffs, right? He killed the Lakers. So of course the…

  5. Quote of the day

    Mar 15, 2010, 9:31 AM EDT

    “I cannot be afraid of ghosts because I was abducted by aliens.” –Utah’s Kyrylo Fesenko, when asked about the team staying in an allegedly haunted hotel in Oklahoma City.

  6. The Sixers are trying, they just suck

    Mar 15, 2010, 9:10 AM EDT

    It is as big a March tradition as picking Murray State to win in the first round of the Big Dance only to be let down — NBA teams tanking for more lottery ping pong balls. And the Philadelphia 76ers are just 2 and 8 in their last 10, so they must be tanking, right?…

  7. Davis on thumbing it with Shaq

    Mar 15, 2010, 8:34 AM EDT

    He smacked it then grabbed it, yes. Boston’s Glen Davis was no baby about owning up grabbing and pulling on Shaquille O’Neal’s thumb, something that led to surgery and is keeping The Big Whatever He Is This Week on the shelf until about the playoffs. Sunday Davis tried to plead the case down to thumb-slauter…

  8. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 15, 2010, 1:10 AM EDT

    What happened to Sunday while you were filling out your brackets completely for fun with absolutely no wagers involved… Cavs 104 Celtics 93: We already told you about the Celtics getting run around a bit, but I wanted to follow up with Antawn Jamison. Jamison finished with 15 points on 6 of 17 shooting which…

  9. The Don Nelson Firing Manifesto

    Mar 14, 2010, 11:11 PM EDT

    Tim Kawakami has laid out the entire thing. Ten reasons one by one, to ditch the Don. It is a hit job glazed in dynamite. This isn’t a criticism, Nelson’s been calling for it. The reasons are detailed but succinct. But if you want the biggest reason Nelson needs to go, it’s outlined in #2.…

  10. No getting around it: Celtics outclassed by Cavs again

    Mar 14, 2010, 8:05 PM EDT

    Well, that did not go well for Boston. The Celtics were outclassed again in Cleveland. They actually managed to tie the game with 5:00 to go in the third. Then the Cavs just… outclassed them. Outran, outworked, out-gunned, out-manned them. It’s not that everything fell apart for the Celtics or that the effort wasn’t there.…

  11. 'Winning Time' doc on Pacers-Knicks premieres tonight

    Mar 14, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    If you have not heard about the “Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. the New York Knicks” documentary for ESPN’s 30 for 30 series, um, where you been? The documentary screened at Sundance to widespread acclaim and the celebrations have been the same since. They showed it at Conseco Fieldhouse and the fans were giddy. They…

  12. Nets don't want your sympathy

    Mar 14, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    Rob Peterson at FanHouse has been following the worst team in the league as they seek to avoid being the worst team in history. Today he checks in with a piece on the general attitude of the Nets. The summary? The Nets don’t want you to pity them. Empathize, understand, but they are not feeling…

  13. Chris Bosh is not a happy dude

    Mar 14, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    The Raptors lost to the Warriors last night, and are now just 2-8 in their last 10. They’ve been a bad defensive team all season, but last night really showed the totality of their futility lately. They’re playing like the incomplete, mediocre team they were early in the season, rather than the red-hot team that…

  14. Sean Marks done for the season

    Mar 14, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Like the Hornets needed more injuries. The Hornets’ back-up big man Sean Marks will have surgery Tuesday on a bum shoulder and miss the rest of the season. While Marks isn’t a pivotal cog or anything, it’s still an impact on the Hornets’ depth, which is near-non-existent as is. The Hornets aren’t the most injury-plagued…

  15. Celtics make themselves feel better by laughing at Lakers

    Mar 14, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    The Celtics have not had a smashing month. They’ve bullied, beaten, out-ran and bludgeoned. They’ve seemed lifeless, shiftless, bored, and anything but a title contender. They lost to the Nets, for crying out loud. Wednesday, the Memphis Grizzlies, who haven’t been playing great lately, absolutely blasted the Celtics like they were a D-League squad. So…

  16. Bobcats dodge bullet, Wallace MRI negative

    Mar 14, 2010, 11:37 AM EDT

    Gerald Wallace rolled his ankle pretty badly on Friday night, and it was still pretty swollen the next day, prompting an MRI. You could literally hear the Bobcats’ breath collectively inhaling like an industrial strength vacuum. A long-term injury to the ‘Cats All-Star would sink their chances for not only doing anything of note in…

  17. If Gay is the big prize this summer for Knicks, something went horribly wrong

    Mar 14, 2010, 10:02 AM EDT

    The New York Post continued its crusade Saturday to convince its readers that anyone, anyone, anyone would be willing to play in New York next year because, well, it’s a really big city and MSG is cool and um, NEW YORK! The latest was after the Grizzlies worked over the Knicks completely Friday night. The…

  18. Money isn't everything, but it better be for Granger

    Mar 14, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    Danny Granger signed a massive extension before last season. He hadn’t been to the playoffs, but the Pacers had drafted well, had a good core in place, and it was, you know, a ton of money. An epic load of money. And that money? Still good. Still buying batcaves. But the rest of the team…

  19. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 14, 2010, 3:16 AM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were watching Pacquiao do work… Magic 109 Wizards 95: So it wasn’t the epic beatdown we were fearful of, which is a good thing. Washington actually led after the first, but then the fact that it was their third game in three nights caught up with them. Either that or…

  20. Hinrich suspended one game for bumping ref

    Mar 13, 2010, 10:21 PM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich blew his lid in the Bulls’ loss to Miami last night, and he’ll be losing some time and money over it. The league suspended Hinrich today for one game after he bumped an official while protesting a call late in the game. So assuming Derrick Rose’s wrist doesn’t magically heal itself to playing…
