  1. Avery Johnson is playing footsie with the Hornets

    Mar 4, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Avery Johnson, or, “The Little General” as he’s known in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 circles, has been out of the coaching gig for a bit. A nice comfy studio gig and no reporters questioning his every small-ball lineup. But Sam Amico writing for Pro Basketball News brings word that Johnson’s agent will be…

  2. Bulls are raking in profits if not wins

    Mar 4, 2010, 10:36 AM EDT

    Location. Location. Location. And a favorable stadium deal. In the world of profit and loss, the Bulls are your NBA champions. Last season, the Bulls made a profit of about $51 million. Over the last three years that sum is $165 million. Over the last decade the Bulls have made owner Jerry Reinsdorf $474 million…

  3. The Bobcats have become Mr. Grumpy Pants

    Mar 4, 2010, 10:24 AM EDT

    The Bobcats really did look like this was going to be the year. A playoff appearance, some silencing of the incessant critics who said this team was not only horrible, but would be horrible for the next five years, maybe a slight reprieve of all the negativity that’s devoured them pretty much since inception. And…

  4. Nets fans boo LeBron

    Mar 4, 2010, 9:44 AM EDT

    At Madison Square Garden, half the fans were there to cheer LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers. The other half had signs begging James to become a Knick next year. Nets fans used to hold out hope James would come to their team this summer. Now, they just boo him like any other team’s superstar.…

  5. Buy Boom Dizzle's beard

    Mar 4, 2010, 9:26 AM EDT

    If you want to look like Baron Davis, you need to buy his beard. If you want to play like Baron Davis, just jack up pull-up three pointers in transition (don’t worry about making them).

  6. Durant should get a max deal this summer

    Mar 4, 2010, 9:11 AM EDT

    July 1 is the first day the Oklahoma City Thunder can offer to extend the contract of their rising superstar Kevin Durant. They can offer a contract that kicks in after his rookie deal, potentially locking him up for five years beyond the one he has left (plus a potential qualifying offer). And if they…

  7. Bobcat's Jackson says Celtics talk too much

    Mar 4, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    For one half last night, the current Celtics looked like the old Celtics (of a couple years ago). They flat out dominated Charlotte, holding them to 35 points and pushing them around on defense while Paul Pierce had the hot hand at the other end of the court. And they talked a lot of trash.…

  8. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 4, 2010, 1:24 AM EDT

    What happened Wednesday, while you were celebrating your new Ghostbusters prints… Celtics 104 Bobcats 80: Or, “How The Celtics Got Their Groove Back.” The Bobcats hung for a half, giving the Celtics all they could handle. Then the Celtics broke it open and never looked back. 35 points total for the Cats in the second…

  9. Winderman: Cap holds change free agent equation

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:10 PM EDT

    Hold on. No, seriously, hold on. Because all is not as it appears when it comes to the heavy hitters and free agency this summer. With the passing of the trading deadline and now the passing of this week’s waiver deadline for postseason eligibility, we have a much better read on where teams stand entering…

  10. Magic tell Barnes to chill with his Twitter profanity

    Mar 3, 2010, 10:01 PM EDT

    Some players really like Twitter. It’s a way to communicate with their friends and family, expand their brand, and generally talk about when they’re going to take their pre-game nap. But sometimes, players also tend to go a little too far. It should come as no surprise that Matt Barnes is one of those guys.…

  11. Celtics taking on interesting variations of former selves

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:05 PM EDT

    The Celtics defined their 07-08 championship run with high-character players who understood their role built around the big three. That was what made the 2008 team so dominant, the perfect management of ego and talent. A combination so brilliantly naturally dynamic even Doc Rivers couldn’t screw it up. But since then, they’ve started to take…

  12. Tony Parker may take a summer vacation

    Mar 3, 2010, 6:03 PM EDT

    Tony Parker has been pretty good this season, he just has not been The Tony Parker. The quick penetrating point guard that struck fear into the hearts of teams across the land and led the Spurs to titles has been replaced by a slower, not quite as good shooting version. Sort of like the second…

  13. The people of Charlotte have spoken

    Mar 3, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    The best thing about the NBA is it is a democracy, where the fans voices are always heard and carefully considered by ownership before any decisions are made… Right. And bacon is good for your arteries. Still, we can dream. The fine folks at the Charlotte Observer have dreamed, and asked the people of Charlotte…

  14. Darko expected to start tonight

    Mar 3, 2010, 3:01 PM EDT

    Consider it a showcase for the European scouts whose teams will be bidding on his services for next season — Darko Milicic is expected to be in the starting lineup for the Timberwolves tonight against Dallas. The reason for the sudden promotion is Al Jefferson is serving a two-game suspension for a drunk driving arrest.…

  15. Noah to miss three weeks

    Mar 3, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    Despite all the advances of modern medicine, there remains but one cure for plantar fasciitis: rest. That’s what Joakim Noah is about to get — the Bulls are shutting him down for three weeks of rest. Noah has been bothered by plantar fasciitis in his left foot for some time now. Plantar fasciitis is the…

  16. Nets to break ground on new arena next week

    Mar 3, 2010, 1:55 PM EDT

    No. Sleep. To Brooklyn. The New Jersey Nets will hold a ground breaking ceremony next Thursday for the new Barclays Center in New Jersey, according to Nets Daily. That will come just a couple weeks after the last of the major legal hurdles was cleared. If you’ve never been to a ground breaking ceremony, man…

  17. Maybe LeBron has a plan for the summer

    Mar 3, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    The conventional wisdom is that LeBron James has yet to decide where he is going to play next year. He’ll decide this summer after seeing how far Cleveland can get in the playoffs, and weighing what other big free agents do. Or, maybe he has a plan. That’s what Chris Douglas-Roberts hinted to Douglas-Roberts,…

  18. Kevin Martin faces old team tonight

    Mar 3, 2010, 1:06 PM EDT

    Kevin Martin is tearing it up as a Rocket — in his last two games he has scored 60 points combined on 62 percent shooting and has hit 7 of 10 from beyond the arc. Take that Geoff Petrie. He also loves his new point guard partner, Aaron Brooks, the guy who Martin said, “is…

  19. Thabeet adjusts to life in the D-League

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:54 AM EDT

    On the court, the game is still the same. As Coach Norman Dale taught us, the basket is 10 feet high and the free throw line is 15 feet away from it, whether you play in Madison Square Garden or North Dakota. On the court, Hasheem Thabeet showed some of the flashes of promise that…

  20. Please welcome the flood of LeBron speculation

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:32 AM EDT

    There have been discussions of it for years. It’s slowly been increasing; a major article here, a random rumor there. But now, with July and the free agency period just four months away, we’ve finally come to it. Everyone and their momma has an idea on what LeBron’s going to do. Now, to be clear,…
