  1. Stevenson wanted to order a 'Code Red'

    Mar 5, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    Jason Terry will miss time due to a broken orbital bone, and it was all thanks to the powerful elbow of one Corey Brewer. But Terry’s teammate DeShawn Stevenson has a bigger lament than JET’s missed court time. From Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News:  “The only thing I’d like for us is to…

  2. Exploring the Nuggets' need for another big man

    Mar 5, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    There isn’t a roster in the league that you could look up and down and say “Ehh, they couldn’t use another big man.” That’s the very reason that the Big Z-Cleveland release-and-catch is so offensive to so many teams; the move doesn’t seem like it should be legal, sure, but those who have been the…

  3. Bryant knows Wade's pain, also knows irony

    Mar 5, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant has been there. He’s played Atlas with the Lakers world on his shoulders. Dude carried a team that started Smush Parker and Kwame Brown to the playoffs. That, frankly, was his MVP year. He looks at Dwyane Wade and understands. “He had 14 assists, but there’s still too much on him,” Bryant said…

  4. Stoudemire isn't really looking for a long-term relationship right now, y'know?

    Mar 5, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Look, maybe if Amar’e Stoudemire was another All-Star power forward with another set of circumstances, things would be different. But this is who he is right now and this is what he’s going through, and with free agency just on the horizon, Stoudemire isn’t looking for anything serious from the Suns. Commitment weirds him out…

  5. Bill Walker is not the Knicks savior, but he is fun

    Mar 5, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Now comes the time in the Knicks season when the media works to pit Donnie Walsh and Mike D’Antoni against each other, and rather than bother that pair all it does is freak out James Dolan.The whole thing is about as pretty to watch as the Knicks on the court. What we need is a…

  6. Brook Lopez might need some conditioning

    Mar 5, 2010, 10:29 AM EDT

    Using the phrase “bright spot” and “Nets” in the same sentence just feels wrong. We’re not going to do that. One of the less dark spots for the Nets this season has been Brook Lopez, who has established himself as a legitimate center in the NBA. He’s giving the Nets 19 points, 9 boards and…

  7. Stephen A. Smith: Iverson has a drinking problem

    Mar 5, 2010, 9:49 AM EDT

    As if Allen Iverson did not have enough problems, Stephen A. Smith of the Philadelphia Inquirer adds this one to the mix. According to several NBA sources with knowledge of the situation, Iverson has been troubled by excessive drinking. Smith puts that note in the middle of the laundry list of personal and professional issues…

  8. Shannon Brown slam dunk to be a free agent

    Mar 5, 2010, 9:25 AM EDT

    LetShannonGetANewContract.com. Yea, doesn’t quite have the same ring, does it? Still, high-flying Shannon Brown — well, except during the dunk contest — is expected to join this summer’s free agent class. Brown has a player option to stay with the Lakers for $2.1 million next season (second year of a bi-annual exception deal). Brown and…

  9. Curry could play Saturday for Knicks

    Mar 5, 2010, 8:53 AM EDT

    Well, this will solve all the Knicks problems. Enigmatic big man Eddy Curry is close to suiting up for New York. It could be as soon as Saturday, as the big man wouldn’t mind a soft spot to get started and there are no softer spots than playing the Nets. Although, it could be a…

  10. Mike James not at Flip Saunders fan

    Mar 5, 2010, 8:35 AM EDT

    Why didn’t it work out for Mike James in Washington this year? Why did the quintessential journeyman — nine teams in eight NBA seasons — only get on the court for four games with the lowly Wizards? Maybe it was the fact he shot just 30 percent from the field this season. No, that’s not…

  11. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 5, 2010, 2:44 AM EDT

    Our game recaps from Thursday, or what you missed while getting geeked about the return of Tecmo Bowl… Heat 114, Lakers 111 (OT): Just was just a fun one to watch –there was a duel between Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade, there was spots of good defense but better offense, there was a playoff feel.…

  12. Finley will be a Celtic

    Mar 4, 2010, 6:43 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:45 pm: It’s about as official as it gets when it is on NBA.com, reported by David Aldridge — Finley and the Celtics have reached terms on an agreement, according to Finley’s agent Henry Thomas. Finley will join the Celtics this weekend. “There were others, but they [the Celtics] were the most aggressive and…

  13. Big Z's agent says he wants to be a Cavalier

    Mar 4, 2010, 6:38 PM EDT

    In news about as shocking as Guinness sales will be up on St. Patrick’s Day, the agent for Zydrunas Ilgauskas says he wants to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. There are a couple reports on twitter from Cavaliers insiders reporting that Big Z’s agent, Herb Rudoy, is saying the center wants to return to the…

  14. Darko says he still plans on returning to Europe

    Mar 4, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

    Former #2 overall pick Darko Milicic still plans on returning to Europe, according to an Associated Press report. Milicic has been in the rotation for the Minnesota Timberwolves since getting traded by the Knicks, but that has not been “enough to change Milicic’s mind,” according to the AP report. Milicic was once thought to have…

  15. Jennings, this isn't a "slump"

    Mar 4, 2010, 4:37 PM EDT

    Remember THAT Brandon Jennings. The one that seemed an unstoppable force at the beginning of the season. The one with a legendary 55 point game that turned heads. We all miss that Brandon Jennings. Of late he has been stoppable. Very stoppable. And he knows it, just not why it is happening. “I actually don’t…

  16. LeBron moonlights at point guard

    Mar 4, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    Delonte West and Daniel Gibson were both inactive for the Cleveland Cavaliers last night. Mo Williams went to the bench early in the first quarter with two quick fouls. That meant LeBron James was left to play point guard against the league’s worst team. The results were impressive. In the 13 minutes James was on…

  17. The Suns' streaks, by the numbers

    Mar 4, 2010, 4:09 PM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns have had a bit of an odd season. First they were unstoppable, going 14-3 to start the season. Then they weren’t very good at all, going 12-18 over the course of two months. Since January 28th, the Suns are 13-3.  Bright Side of the Sun’s Seth Pollack has a post up today…

  18. Rasheed Wallace and three-point futility

    Mar 4, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace likes shooting threes. He likes shooting threes more than a lot of people like just about anything. This much we know. We also know that Rasheed Wallace’s accuracy from beyond the arc is not commensurate with his love of shooting threes. Rasheed currently shoots 4.4 threes per game, which is about one three…

  19. Garnett inching closer to 100 percent

    Mar 4, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    It’s no secret that Kevin Garnett hasn’t looked like his old self this year. The veteran forward has played well over 1,000 NBA games in his career, and it looks like it may be catching up with him. Garnett, who once missed three games over the course of a six-year span when he was in…

  20. Ilgauskas' feelings are hurt. Cue violin music.

    Mar 4, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    Poor Zydrunas Ilgauskas. After a dozen years in the NBA, he was traded by a team that desperately wants — needs — him back, but the sting of that brief separation may be too much. That’s what his agent is selling, anyway. Ilgauskas has drawn interest from several other teams, including the Atlanta Hawks. (Big…
