  3. D-League: Taping over the Swoosh

    Mar 6, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    The NBA’s D-League — you know, where your team’s rookie that can’t see the court goes to get a little burn — is an Adidas league. Adidas sponsored jerseys, sweats everything. That includes shoes. Every team gets plenty of Adidas shoes, and players are supposed to wear them. Except that some — many? — of…

    Mar 6, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    New Yorkers have the equation backwards: New York needs LeBron James more than he needs New York.

    Mar 6, 2010, 1:07 PM EDT

    The Lakers weren’t moving the ball well as a team last night, so Kobe Bryant just gave himself an assist, rebound and basket all on one play. Do not try this at home.

  8. Don't worry, Jennings is going to keep shooting

    Mar 6, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings is not shooting well. He calls it a slump, it seems to be something more. But the man is frustrated. Understandably frustrated. And frustrated, angry people say stupid things (just listen to sports talk radio for proof). Like Jennings saying Wednesday night he doesn’t “even know if he wants to shoot the ball,”…

  12. Mysterious William Wesley to go mainstream

    Mar 6, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    William Wesley is to the NBA what the Smoking Man was to the X-files — a shadowy figure who seemed to control everything. He has been a close confidant of LeBron James. He has Michael Jordan on speed dial. He is very tight with John Calipari. He was the guy who ran out and grabbed…

  15. Durant doesn't think he'll win scoring title

    Mar 5, 2010, 7:36 PM EDT

    At 21, Kevin Durant is already one of the best scorers in the NBA. He can drive the ball to the basket, hit the outside shot with ease, and has great shot selection and a wonderful bag of tricks on the offensive end.  This season, Durant trails LeBron James by a hair for the title…

  17. Camby doesn't want to feel left out, gets injured

    Mar 5, 2010, 5:59 PM EDT

    If I were a Portland Trail Blazer center, I would be more paranoid than Cary Grant in North by Northwest. Friday afternoon Marcus Camby became the latest Portland big to get injured, according to the Oregonian (and they were there, so they know). During a intrasquad scrimmage, Camby ran into the basketball standard and was…

  20. Nash's body betraying him

    Mar 5, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

    There are still the brilliant no-look passes. The step-back threes. The ability to hold on to his dribble as well as anyone who has ever played the game. The understanding of the angles. Steve Nash can still ball. He remains an elite point guard. But right now, at age 36 and nearly five months into…
