  1. Getting tough with the Cavaliers' 13-game win streak

    Feb 12, 2010, 7:57 PM EDT

    It may strike some NBA fans as odd that the team with the NBA’s best record at the All-Star break is also one of the most active teams in trade talks. Not only do the Cavaliers hold the league’s best record, but they appear to be rolling at the moment. They’re on a 13-game winning…

  2. Anthony Morrow promises revenge, lefty three

    Feb 12, 2010, 6:26 PM EDT

    If you’ve watched the Warriors, you know this: Anthony Morrow doesn’t miss open threes. It doesn’t happen. An undrafted rookie, Morrow made the Warriors after hitting 17 of his 23 (74%!) attempts during his first summer-league stint. He’s barely slowed down after that, leading the league in three-point percentage his rookie season and making 45%…

  3. Who are the NBA's best statistical defenders?

    Feb 12, 2010, 6:04 PM EDT

    Just like in baseball, properly measuring defense has been the fly in the ointment of the NBA’s statistical revolution. Tracking blocks and steals is as incomplete of a defensive measure as counting errors in baseball, and +/- based stats have serious holes as well. Since good defense prevents things from happening instead of causing them…

  4. RIP: Fred Schaus, first LA Lakers coach

    Feb 12, 2010, 5:38 PM EDT

  5. Trade deadline buyers wait on league financial update

    Feb 12, 2010, 5:13 PM EDT

    Plenty of trade talk, but so far no trade action. What is going on, not going to be one of those trade deadline bust years is it? It may be more about waiting until David Stern tells them the real picture with league finances this weekend in Dallas. The public will get commissioner David Stern’s…

  6. 'Shaq Vs.' returns, America cringes

    Feb 12, 2010, 3:39 PM EDT

    According to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Shaquille O’Neal’s…shall we say, interesting reality show, Shaq Vs., will be returning for a second season on ABC. It’s the perfect show for that 7’2”, attention-crazed NBA star in your life, but for everyone else? Well, it’s a bit silly. I’m sure Shaq has a lot…

  7. Joe Johnson to get starting nod for East

    Feb 12, 2010, 3:08 PM EDT

    Stan Van Gundy has apparently made his choice — Atlanta’s Joe Johnson is going to get the open starting spot for the Eastern Conference on Sunday. Reports are popping up all over the Web. Johnson is a much more deserving starter than Allen Iverson, the person he replaces, the person voted in by fans who…

  8. Add Sacramento to Troy Murphy's growing list of suitors

    Feb 12, 2010, 2:34 PM EDT

    The trade deadline is a bit like multi-million dollar window shopping in that teams suddenly see and want things they never really knew they needed. Antawn Jamison becomes available, and all of a sudden every team in the league is desperate for his scoring at the 4. Caron Butler’s on the block, and everyone desperately…

  9. Rondo, Team USA have "miscommunication"

    Feb 12, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Everything is good now between Rajon Rondo and USA Basketball, it was all just a Three’s Company episode. That is what the Boston Herald is saying on its Celtics Blog (the paper  stole that name, by the way): “There may have been a little miscommunication on that one,” (USA Basketball big cheese Jerry) Colangelo said.…

  10. Most experts think LeBron stays in Cleveland

    Feb 12, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    There is nothing quite as much fun as speculating on where LeBron might go this summer. New York? New Jersey? Chicago? However, the smart money has always been on Cleveland. When Sports Illustrated’s Ian Thompson asked 12 team executives, seven said he was staying for sure and three more said it was a 50/50 call.…

  11. Dream Team headlines Hall of Fame Nominations

    Feb 12, 2010, 1:11 PM EDT

    The 1992 Olympic Dream Team — Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley — was more than just the greatest collection of basketball talent ever on one team, they helped change the international game.

  12. Celtics now deny Jamison, Butler for Ray Allen

    Feb 12, 2010, 1:07 PM EDT

    Update 1:04 pm Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge is now denying that these talks are taking place at all. This deal is apparently now dead. Much to the dismay of Celtics fans. 10:07 am Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge is not afraid of the big move. Heck, that’s how the Celtics got here in the…

  13. The Bucks are buyers. Seriously.

    Feb 12, 2010, 12:04 PM EDT

    The Milwaukee Bucks are buyers in a bear market. Yes, those Bucks. They are 7-3 in their last 10 games and now sit ninth in the east, just one game back of Chicago in the last playoff spot. The Bucks want to go to the dance this year and they want to make a move…

  14. CBA Negotiations at the NBA All-Star party

    Feb 12, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    It’s a big show in Dallas — more than 90,000 people, high flying stars, a dunk contest the night before, no expense spared for the NBA’s biggest weekend. Ignore that dark cloud over the proceedings. Today in frigid Dallas (well, for Dallas), the owners and players representatives will sit down for their first talks on…

  16. Bosh not following anyone this summer

    Feb 12, 2010, 9:22 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh does not want to be LeBron James’ sidekick. Dwyane Wade’s either. “That’s a good question,” Bosh said when asked by ESPN The Magazine’s Ric Bucher if he’s bothered by the widespread perception that he’s determined to follow either LeBron James or Dwyane Wade by signing on with one of the teams they choose…

    Feb 12, 2010, 9:07 AM EDT

    The rich are about get richer. Leon Powe, the athletic 6’8″ forward, has passed some key running and stress tests and may start practicing with the Cleveland Cavaliers soon.

  18. Nets may go after Coach K

    Feb 12, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

    Rick Pitino was never in the picture for the Nets. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo, they appear to be trying to reel in a much, much bigger fish. After the Toronto Raptors ownership exercised the 2010-11 option on general manager Bryan Colangelo’s contract this week, there’s a growing belief that Prokhorov could be turning…

  19. Shaq on Howard: "Superman my ass"

    Feb 12, 2010, 8:13 AM EDT

    Feb 12, 2010, 2:51 AM EDT

    Our game recaps from Thursday, or what you missed while driving around to find the Kogi truck.
