  1. Butler already a starter in Dallas

    Feb 15, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Well, that didn’t take long — Maverick’s coach Rick Carlisle has already told Jason Terry he would be coming off the bench and Caron Butler would start. The move could be a potential concern to the Mavericks, because Terry was on the bench to start the year but struggled in that role. He was moved…

  2. All-Star Game Highlights

    Feb 15, 2010, 7:50 AM EDT

    You didn’t watch the All-Star Game last night because it was Valentine’s Day and you didn’t want to sleep on the couch last night? Or because you were hooked on the Olympics and wanted to watch men’s moguls? We get that, so here are the highlights from last night in Dallas.

  3. Dwight Howard nails three-pointer

    Feb 15, 2010, 1:48 AM EDT

    We don’t watch the All-Star Game to see a good game, we… wait, we got one? Didn’t see that coming. Well, then the other reason we watch the All-Star Game is because players try the ridiculous. Like say, Dwight Howard hitting a three pointer. It happened — we have video proof.

  4. Wow, the All-Star Game was actually good

    Feb 14, 2010, 11:54 PM EDT

    The NBA got what it wanted — more people than ever watched a basketball  game live, setting a new world’s record in the new Cowboy’s Stadium. Sure, a bunch of the 108,713 people basically watched the game on the world’s largest television, but it’s a really cool television so the record stands. And will stand,…

  5. All-Star halftime: East 76 West 69

    Feb 14, 2010, 9:58 PM EDT

    Really, the highlight so far is the Batman outfit Usher wore pregame. That or the few minutes of Steve Nash/Jason Kidd backcourt, just so Dallas fans could be reminded what they had in 1997. Aside that, pretty standard All-Star game first half. The crowd has not seemed totally into it. Maybe because they are sitting…

  6. Harrington to Bulls back in the rumor fires as NBA trade deadline approaches

    Feb 14, 2010, 9:13 PM EDT

    The Tyrus Thomas to New York rumors were thought dead as time went on, but Ken Berger of is reporting the deal is experiencing a ‘Thriller’ like revival, with the same pieces in place. Al Harrington provides a two-birds, one-stone combination for the Bulls. His scoring ability at the forward position may not be…

  7. Cavs' Amar'e talks highlight power plays

    Feb 14, 2010, 6:59 PM EDT

    Oh, what a tangled web we weave. As you can imagine, NBA All-Star Weekend isn’t about the festivities, or the quotes, or the MCs throwing free stuff to fans. No, it’s about talk. Business talk, strategy talk, and naturally, lots and lots of trade talk. And as ESPN’s rumor section lays out, some of that…

  8. Stunning revelation: Magic Johnson had sex

    Feb 14, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    The best NBA novelist on the planet — Roland Lazenby — has a new book coming out in a few weeks on the life of Jerry West. Of course, the first parts of the book to get leaked publicly are the most salacious. That brings us to Bob Wolfley of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (as picked…

  9. Stern using economy as hammer: $400 million in losses

    Feb 14, 2010, 2:01 PM EDT

    Why did the owners submit the first proposal in the new Collective Bargaining Negotiations a full 18 months out from when the current deal ends? (That’s providing the owners opt out of the deal by the end of the year, which they will.) Because they want to negotiate right now. Today. In this economy. Because…

  10. Cavaliers/Suns trade revisits Shaq and Amar'e failure

    Feb 14, 2010, 11:27 AM EDT

    There were so many things wrong with Steve Kerr moving to bring Shaquille O’Neal to the run-and-gun Phoenix Suns a few years ago that it’s hard to remember them all. But fans and management in Cleveland should remember this one as the Cavs close in on a deal with the Suns: Amar’e Stoudemire was not…

  11. Howard sets world record sitting down

    Feb 14, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard has set a worlds record, and he didn’t even have to stand up to do it. The people from the Guinness Book of World Records were on hand  — by the way, what a great job traveling the globe doing things like tasting the world’s largest cherry pie — and they did the…

  12. Coach K to Nets: "Nyet"

    Feb 14, 2010, 9:49 AM EDT

    If incoming Nets owner and Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov wants to make a big splash with his first coaching hire, he’s not going to do it with Duke and Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski. In fact, coach K thinks the whole thing is pretty funny. “The guy is Russian. You think he’d hire a Polish…

  13. Nate Robinson wins sleepy dunk contest

    Feb 13, 2010, 11:29 PM EDT

    Next year — Please. Nate Robinson has won his third dunk contest — more than Dominique Wilkins or Michael Jordan — but he was able to do it Saturday without near the flair it would have taken to beat those other legends. There was one inspired dunk all night — a pass of the…

  14. Winderman: Mavs moves about next year, too

    Feb 13, 2010, 9:25 PM EDT

    Considering the way Josh Howard had fallen out of favor and how Drew Gooden has never been more than a flavor of the month at any of his NBA stops, an argument could be made that Dallas made its move for Caron Butler and Brandan Haywood with the present in mind. Arguably, the Mavericks are…

  15. Caron Butler officially a Maverick

    Feb 13, 2010, 9:06 PM EDT

    How big is the trade that became official today, sending Caron Butler and Brandan Haywood to Dallas? Ask the guy the trade was made to beat, Kobe Bryant. Kobe, does the trade put the Mavericks on par with the Lakers? “No question,” Kobe said Saturday when asked by our girl Gina Miller whether the trade…

  16. NBA All-Star dunk contest/3-point shootout live blog

    Feb 13, 2010, 8:20 PM EDT

    Final note to David Stern: This night only works if you have a couple athletic dunkers and a couple stars. You need Dwight. You need LeBron. You need the stars to make it work. Love Shannon and DeMar, need the star power. Especially in LA next year, where it is all about the stars. Everyone…

    Feb 13, 2010, 5:27 PM EDT

    LeBron James, a former teammate of Brown’s and his opponent in the 2003 High School Dunk Contest, thinks Brown will win this year’s contest.

  19. Westbrook to replace Rose in Skills Challenge

    Feb 13, 2010, 5:02 PM EDT

    The day after his 40-point performance in the Rookie-Sophomore Challenge, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook was named a participant in the Skills Challenge.  Westbrook will replace Derrick Rose, who will miss the contest with a bruised right hip. Westbrook is blindingly fast, and could have an excellent shot at winning the competition.  The problem for Westbrook…
