  1. Dominic McGuire joins the "out for the season" crowd

    Mar 30, 2010, 10:54 AM EDT

    There’s something very ominous about saying a player is out for the season. It’s as if every injured player is Michael Redd, losing another season of their career in semi-tragic fashion. Then you realize that every player that’s been declared “out for the season,” for non-playoff teams at least, is really just missing about eight…

  2. Quote of the day

    Mar 30, 2010, 10:25 AM EDT

    “I love D’Antoni, he’s the dope. Spending time with him in the Olympics, his offensive mindset is unbelievable. He’s got the best plays I’ve ever been around — on a whim. It’s like rappers when they come out on the top of the dome with quotes. He’s got plays in the back of his head…

  3. Did Antoine Wright run smack about THE Michael Jordan?

    Mar 30, 2010, 9:49 AM EDT

    Antoine Wright isn’t a bad player. Good defender, that will likely get better with age, and he can knock down some shots. But he’s not really considered elite. Which makes the fact that he was apparently “running smack” about the GOAT more than a little surprising. Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports that Bobcats…

  4. PBT now on Facebook

    Mar 30, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    I, and the rest of the team here at ProBasketballTalk, are really twitter people at heart. Not sure what that really says about us, other than we like short sentences. Really. Short. But I are open to all the Web has to offer (except YouTube cat videos). So now we have the ProBasketballTalk Facebook page.…

  5. Jeff Van Gundy appears leader to coach Nets

    Mar 30, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    Now that the Nets have 10 wins, let’s start talking about what really matters — next season. The next big day on the calendar in New Jersey is May 18, John Wall Day. What you call the NBA draft lottery. It could be a huge day in franchise history if the math goes their way,…

  6. Joey Dorsey waived by Sacramento Kings

    Mar 30, 2010, 8:55 AM EDT

    In the flashes we have seen, it seems like Joey Dorsey can play at the NBA level. It’s hard to judge, though, when a guy gets so little burn. Even on a Sacramento team that could seem to use him. Dorsey has been cut loose, waived by the Kings. The writing was on the wall…

  7. Kenyon Martin fears he could be done for season

    Mar 30, 2010, 8:32 AM EDT

    Last night, Dirk Nowitzki went off on the Denver Nuggets, putting up a triple double. He got to the spots on the floor he wanted, got the shots he wanted and finished with 34 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Kenyon Martin’s physical play is normally Denver’s answer to Dirk, but Martin had to watch…

  8. Baseline to Baseline, the "you can't stop the Nets" edition

    Mar 30, 2010, 3:24 AM EDT

    What you missed around the NBA last night while wondering what it would be like to see Doc Rivers snap like that hockey coach… Mavericks 109, Nuggets: 93: Dallas won this one with their forwards. The obvious part of that is Dirk Nowitzki’s triple-double — 34 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists. Usually Denver puts Kenyon…

  9. New Jersey Nets, you're not the worst ever, congratulations

    Mar 29, 2010, 10:59 PM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets have reached their goal of just being a kind of average very bad. The Nets picked up win number 10 on the season in style, defeating traditional power San Antonio. Except that these Spurs were without Manu Ginobili (easily the Spurs best player the last few weeks) and Tony Parker. So…

  10. Nets owner, fan to have bag-lunch summit

    Mar 29, 2010, 7:48 PM EDT

    First, Nets owner Brett Yormark made himself look bad when he yelled at a fan who wore a paper bag over his head while attending a Nets home game. After that, Yormark realized that when you’re the owner of a team as bad as the Nets, having a sense of humor might not be the…

  11. Dorell Wright latest NBA player to be exposed on twitter

    Mar 29, 2010, 7:40 PM EDT

    UPDATE 7:45 pm: Wright made a public apology for the photos through a released statement. “I’d like to apologize to my family, friends and the Heat organization for this embarrassment. The photos were taken roughly one year ago in what I thought was a private conversation. I lacked judgment and was naive about the Internet.…

  12. Baron Davis to miss road trip

    Mar 29, 2010, 7:26 PM EDT

    According to the Associated Press, Los Angeles Clippers guard Baron Davis will miss the team’s upcoming three-game road trip due to back spasms. The Clippers are coming off an embarrassing blowout at home against the Golden State Warriors, and have only won three games in March. The Clippers only have one more game on the road after…

  13. Top NBA Prospects Named AP All-Americans

    Mar 29, 2010, 7:09 PM EDT

    Some players are great in college but can never quite seem to cut it in the NBA. Then there are the guys who don’t set the world on in college, but end up becoming great NBA players. This season, however, the best college players were also the guys expected to be selected with the first…

  14. Eddy Curry out for the rest of the year

    Mar 29, 2010, 6:32 PM EDT

    According to the Associated Press, Eddy Curry will miss the rest of the season with a right calf injury. All that really means for Curry will be watching games while wearing a suit instead of a uniform, as Curry hasn’t played a minute for the Knicks since December 17th, 2009. Curry has played 62 minutes…

  15. Warriors' Don Nelson: Reggie Williams has a gift

    Mar 29, 2010, 5:06 PM EDT

    No team is having the success with D-League call ups that the Golden State Warriors are. Guys who were playing in Sioux Falls just a couple months ago are leading Don Nelson toward setting the NBA record for most coaching wins in a career. When things started to tighten up late Sunday night (a lead…

  16. Manu Ginobili out tonight with back spasms

    Mar 29, 2010, 4:25 PM EDT

    Insert your own joke about carrying the team on his back here. Manu Ginobili will not suit up for tonight against the New Jersey Nets due to lower back spasms, according to the Spurs official twitter account. Of late Ginobili has been the best player for San Antonio, averaging 22 points a game on 51…

  17. Robin Lopez out, Phoenix Suns down

    Mar 29, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns won last night. They’ve been doing that a lot lately. They are 21-5 in the last 26, and Amare Stoudemire is playing the best ball of his career, which is making rims afraid. The offense is great, the defense is passable and the Suns are back to being the entertaining Suns. But…

  18. NBA Draft: Cole Aldrich not going to be in Kansas anymore

    Mar 29, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    Cole Aldrich noticed that all the other teams upset in the NCAA Tourney had their guys declare for the draft, and he didn’t want to miss out on the party.

  19. NBA power rankings, where the Nets are up to 28th

    Mar 29, 2010, 1:17 PM EDT

    This week, each of the top teams have a loss they regret, so we balance things out by not tinkering with the top… but the Spurs and Suns are climbing fast. And the Nets are 28th.1. Cavaliers (58-16) The true sign of a quality team – they get a little bored this time of year…

  20. Randy Foye the latest to suffer the curse of the Wizards

    Mar 29, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    According to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, Randy Foye will miss the next 7-10 days with a left wrist sprain and could very well be done for the season. I consider this evidence that the basketball gods, wherever they are, are merciful entities indeed. If only all of the Wizards’ mainstays were so lucky.…
