  1. Lakers all kiss Kobe's a–

    Mar 18, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant can dominate the ball and take the Lakers out of their offense. In other breaking news, the sun rises in the East and Kirstie Alley may have put on a few pounds. So Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles asked the Lakers shooting coach Craig Hodges if anyone stands up to Kobe on this team,…

  2. D-League team beats Hornets

    Mar 18, 2010, 8:52 AM EDT

    Don Nelson threw a D-League team out on an NBA floor Wednesday night. Almost literally. Anthony Tolliver was playing in Idaho in January. Reggie Williams was playing for Sioux Falls last month. Chris Hunter was playing for Fort Wayne when the season started. Three guys who were sharing hotel rooms, flying in coach, carrying all…

  3. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 18, 2010, 2:48 AM EDT

    What happened Wednesday, while you were asking “What’s That Song?“… Bobcats 100 Thunder 92: Raymond Felton is probably better than you think he is. He’s been a huge part of the Bobcats’ success this year, and his ability to create chaos in the offensive set now that teams can’t collapse because of Stephen Jackson is…

  4. Leaner, meaner Amare

    Mar 17, 2010, 11:42 PM EDT

    Since the All-Star Game, Amare Stoudemire has been Beasting. With the capital “B.” Like Kobe/LeBron level Beasting. In the last 10 games he is averaging 28 points, 9 rebounds, shooting 54.6 percent and attacking the rim so he gets 10 free throws a game. He and Steve Nash are running an unstoppable pick-and-roll like they…

  5. Rajon Rondo is not lacking for confidence

    Mar 17, 2010, 9:37 PM EDT

    There’s a fine line between the confidence you need to carry yourself with in order to achieve greatness, and a hubris that belies an arrogance that will get you bit in the ass. Rajon Rondo is taking a whiz all over that line. In an interview with HoopsTV, Rondo had some things to say about…

  6. Ron Artest can still defend

    Mar 17, 2010, 7:09 PM EDT

    The scales must be balanced. If not for the sake of justice and Karma, then at least because I’ll be at the Lakers game and talking to Ron Artest this weekend, and I don’t want him angry at me. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. Earlier today as part of our seemingly daily bit…

  7. Drafting the NCAA Tourney: Washington's Quincy Pondexter

    Mar 17, 2010, 5:03 PM EDT

    We all love the NCAA tournament, but as NBA fans we watch it with a different eye — who is going to be coming out of this showcase and on to the NBA. This is part of a series looking at future NBA players you should watch this weekend. Every draft you hear this from…

  8. Winderman: Jordan not playing with OPM anymore

    Mar 17, 2010, 3:54 PM EDT

    Even those not familiar with advance stats have been quick to notice how Michael Jordan has flourished over the years with OPM. Now, with Wednesday’s ownership approval from the NBA’s Board of Governors, that figures to change. Jordan’s success with other people’s money, be it Jerry Reinsdorf’s, Abe Pollin’s or even Bob Johnson’s, no longer…

  9. The Spurs painful Splitter

    Mar 17, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    Watching the Spurs this season, it is painfully obvious they need an infusion of youth. Well, not the last couple weeks, when Manu Ginobili has apparently found a fountain of the stuff. But for most of the season the Spurs have just looked old and slow. They could use a guy like Tiago Splitter. The…

  10. Celebrating the NBA's Irish, like Lamar O'do'm

    Mar 17, 2010, 2:35 PM EDT

    I’ve struggled all day to think of the best way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day NBA style. Leave it to the boys at The Basketball Jones to celebrate the NBA’s Irish legends in song — famed players like Fabricio O’Berto and Greg O’Den. Enjoy.

  11. Drafting the NCAA Tourney: Butler's Gordon Hayward

    Mar 17, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    We all love the NCAA tournament, but as NBA fans we watch it with a different eye — who is going to be coming out of this showcase and on to the NBA. This is part of a series looking at future NBA players you should watch this weekend. Certainly there is no reason to…

  12. The official PBT NCAA "office pool"

    Mar 17, 2010, 1:41 PM EDT

    What, you think you know more about college basketball than me? Well, actually you probably do. My wife will likely beat me in this year’s pool, and she was confused as to where UCLA was in the bracket and why she couldn’t find it. (For the record, and so I’m not sleeping on the couch…

  13. Tyreke Evans is better than you

    Mar 17, 2010, 1:19 PM EDT

    Baron Davis is wrong. Not just about his penchant for pull up threes rather than running the offense, but also about league-wide awards. Davis said yesterday that Brandon Jennings should be Rookie of the Year because his team is winning more. Baron, I know you’re pumping up your fellow SoCal boy, but you are wrong.…

  14. Brandon Roy searches for his inner Kobe

    Mar 17, 2010, 1:09 PM EDT

    Larry Bird, killer. Michael Jordan, killer. Kobe Bryant, killer. Brandon Roy… meh. At least it was that way, until Roy took a hard look at himself after a recent Portland loss to Denver and told Yahoo’s Mark Spears things had to change. I look back at [Michael] Jordan, and Kobe recently. Those guys try to…

  15. It's official: Jordan owns the Bobcats

    Mar 17, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    It was a done deal — he has been sitting on the end of the bench annoying his team now for a couple weeks — but there had to be a formal vote that approved Michael Jordan as the owner of the Bobcats. How did you think that vote was going to go? Of course,…

  16. Brackets! Fill out your brackets right here!

    Mar 17, 2010, 11:42 AM EDT

    UPDATE: You can join the official PBT NCAA pool, follow this link for the details. We’ve been trying to help out by telling you some future NBA prospects to watch in the NCAA Tournament, but really that’s not the best part of the NCAA Tournament. The best part is filling out your bracket, watching the…

  17. Mike Brown gets in LeBron's face, isn't fired

    Mar 17, 2010, 11:21 AM EDT

    Rule number one in Cleveland: Keep LeBron James happy. Rule number two in Cleveland: Keep LeBron Happy. There are no other rules. So when coach Mike “hey LeBron, what do you want to do here?” Brown got in the MVP’s face Tuesday night, it was a surprise. To say the least. But Brian Windhorst saw…

  18. Quote of the day

    Mar 17, 2010, 11:06 AM EDT

    “I’ve had some bad games the last five games – I’m not doing it on purpose, I’m really not.” –Chris Kaman of the Los Angeles Clippers (via the LA Times)

  19. Raptors might be one of worst defenses in playoff history

    Mar 17, 2010, 10:24 AM EDT

    The Toronto Raptors give up 105 points a game. That’s kind of a lot. But hey, no big deal, teams are giving up 100 on average this season anyway! And besides, there are a ton of teams that have given up 105 points a game and made the playoffs. So you know, there’s not much…

  20. Drafting the NCAA Tourney: Gonzaga vs. Florida State

    Mar 17, 2010, 9:48 AM EDT

    We all love the NCAA tournament, but as NBA fans we watch it with a different eye — who is going to be coming out of this showcase and on to the NBA. This is part of a series looking at future NBA players you should watch this weekend. Gonzaga against Florida State — this…
