  3. Kevin Martin's high praise for Aaron Brooks

    Mar 2, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    I’m honestly very, very happy for Kevin Martin and Aaron Brooks.

  6. Denver desperate to add a big

    Mar 2, 2010, 10:33 AM EDT

    Coach George Karl likes to say that the Nuggets are half a body short of the Lakers. Presumably that is a very big body that could spend some time covering Andrew Bynum or Pau Gasol. Now they are looking at what is left at the bottom of the barrel to fill that role. According to…

    Mar 2, 2010, 9:17 AM EDT

    Some try to make it sound complex when you’re talking about the NBA, but simple fact is the labor debate between NBA owners and players is the same as the crux of every labor dispute — management wants to keep salaries down, the workers (players) want to make more. Along those lines, NBA Players Association…

    Yes there was a huge Lakers/Nuggets tilt going on, but I kept flipping between it and the USA/Canada hockey game Sunday afternoon. And I taped the hockey game, so I could go back to it later. I miss hockey. While I was always a hoops guy first I used to play ice hockey with a…
