  2. Did McMillan Want Morrison over Roy?

    Mar 8, 2010, 5:58 PM EDT

    Thanks to some struggles with injury, Brandon Roy hasn’t been quite as great this season as he was last season. However, the 25-year old Washington product is still considered one of the best young players in the NBA. Adam Morrison, the former Gonzaga star who was drafted ahead of Roy, is not considered one of…

  3. Doctors talk, Kenyon Martin waits

    Mar 8, 2010, 5:56 PM EDT

    UPDATE 3/8 5:53 pm: According to the twitter account of Nuggets beat writer Benjamin Hochman, one source said Kenyon Martin will return this season. That is one anonymous source, so please sprinkle that tweet heavily with salt, but it does run contrary to the conventional wisdom on Martin. 3/6 9:55 pm: In what seems to…

  4. Thabeet is back

    Mar 8, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    It appears that Hasheem Thabeet’s brief sojourn into the D-League has come to an end. According to the twitter of Yahoo! Sports scribe Marc Spears, Thabeet has been recalled by the Grizzlies. In six games with the Dakota Wizards, Thabeet averaged 13.8 points, 11.2 rebounds, 3.17 blocks, and made 50% of his shots. His offensive rebounding was particularly…

    Mar 8, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    Dominique Wilkins, a two-time dunk contest champion and current broadcaster for the Atlanta Hawks, thinks that LeBron James should quit worrying about what everybody will think and just dunk already. According to CNBC’s Darren Rovell, Wilkins was quoted saying the following at a recent event: “I’d love if all the big names got involved again.…

  6. Big Baby could have been Blind Sided

    Mar 8, 2010, 4:56 PM EDT

    Pop quiz hotshot: Do you want to star in a major motion picture or win an NBA ring? What do you do? What do you do? Turns out, Glenn “Big Baby” Davis sort of had that choice. At the request of some friends, he sent in an audition tape to play Michael Oher in “The…

  7. Biedrins to undergo hernia operation

    Mar 8, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    Let us all hope that the doctor who will operate on Andris Biedrins in the coming days has better form with a scalpel than Biedrins does on the free throw line. According to the twitter account of Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News, Biedrins is going to have an operation to repair the…

  8. Garnett got way in Blatche's head

    Mar 8, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    The Celtics game of intensity and intimidation isn’t working as well this year as it did two years ago. In 2008, they could bark and the Lakers backed down in the NBA Finals. Now, most teams bark back. But for six minutes Sunday, it was 2008 again (except Avril Lavigne wasn’t on the radio all…

  9. Was Stuckey simply dehydrated?

    Mar 8, 2010, 2:54 PM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey is undergoing a joy most of us won’t get until we’re in our 60s if we’re lucky — a whole couple days of being poked and prodded by doctors trying to figure out why we don’t feel well. They didn’t find anything in Cleveland with many of these same tests, but what’s the…

  10. Parker out six weeks, no surgery

    Mar 8, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    The doctors have spoken: San Antonio’s Tony Parker does not need hand surgery. His post-basketball career as a hand model remains safe. However, he is going to miss the next six weeks while the fourth metacarpal bone in his right hand heals, according to Mark Spears of Yahoo (via twitter). That bone, for the handful…

  11. Report: Iverson gambling, too

    Mar 8, 2010, 1:16 PM EDT

    Stephen A. Smith made a lot of noise last week when he reported Iverson has a drinking problem, so he has gone back to that well to mention there is a gambling problem, too. Allen Iverson is in trouble, folks, deep trouble. The combination of alcohol and gambling – and a once-promising career in tatters…

  12. Should the Mavs forget about homecourt before they even start?

    Mar 8, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    Eddie Sefko isn’t so much with the “Mavs can do it!” camp regarding the Mavs overcoming the Lakers for top seed in the West. All I can say is that they in no way should start getting a fast pulse over the prospects of catching the Lakers for the No. 1 seed in the Western…

  13. NBA power rankings

    Mar 8, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Our weekly NBA rankings, where we have a new number one, but I kind of think the second ranked team would win a seven-game series between the two. 1. Mavericks (43-21) Eleven wins in a row. Next year when some talking head says deadline trades really don’t do much for a team, remember this. However,…

  14. Yi out, because the Nets need more problems

    Mar 8, 2010, 12:04 PM EDT

    Swear to god this is true — the Nets have won three in a row on the road. Look it up. That has been interspersed with a plethora of home losses, but the last three road games (Knicks, Celtics and Bobcats) have been wins. So there are high hopes as the team heads out of…

    Mar 8, 2010, 10:58 AM EDT

    You can own the Memphis Grizzlies, all you need is a spare $250 million or so. Start checking the cushions in the couch for some spare change, you’re just about there. Owner Michael Heisley is willing to sell, if the price is right, he said in a recent interview with the Commercial Appeal. I’m 73…

  16. Rafter Alston healthy, still not with Heat

    Mar 8, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    Rafer Alston remains in exile — whether you think of it as self-imposed or if the Heat put him out like Napoleon on Elba is a matter of perspective. The only new thing we know is he feels fine. Alston has had limited contact with close associates but has notified them his health is not…

  17. Barnes fakes, Kobe doesn't flinch

    Mar 8, 2010, 10:11 AM EDT

    I may start rooting for a repeat Lakers/Magic NBA Finals, just so we can get more Matt Barnes and Kobe Bryant. That was the best part of Sunday’s game (unless you are a big Magic fan, then you might go with Barnes dagger three after Kobe sagged off him and the Magic getting some revenge…

  18. It's the Birdman's world…

    Mar 8, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Chris Anderson owns the paint, and JR Smith can finish on the break. In case you needed any reminders…

  19. Tyreke Evans now coaching, too

    Mar 8, 2010, 9:18 AM EDT

    The Sacramento Kings are now Tyreke Evans’ team.  Might as well have him do the coaching as well. Sam Amick notes the beginning of the takeover. Nocioni and Evans exchanged words during an official timeout midway through the fourth quarter, with the rookie taking exception with the veteran’s play. Nocioni – who took just two…

  20. Pau Gasol wants the damn ball

    Mar 8, 2010, 8:53 AM EDT

    Maybe he should start That seems to work. Kobe Bryant was relatively pleased after the Lakers loss to Orlando, saying that after a couple of sloppy efforts the Lakers really turned it on in this one and were just a couple of breaks away from the win. Of course he thought that — he…
