  1. Nets just want you to know they're already forgetting this year

    Mar 10, 2010, 10:06 PM EDT

    We’ve seen some great franchise rehabs over the past few decades. The Trailblazers reformed themselves into a young, talented core of versatile players while becoming largely transparent in personality, save for Greg Oden in between limping. The Pacers have shed themselves of the Malice at the Palace imagery by submarining into epic mediocrity. But the…

  2. Pistons should protect Stuckey at all costs

    Mar 10, 2010, 9:12 PM EDT

    UPDATE 9:12 pm: Stuckey has been cleared to practice by team doctors. However, no date has been set yet for when he will return to game action 11:54 am: Nobody quite knows what’s ailing Rodney Stuckey physically, and that’s a frightening thing. Professional basketball players, like professional athletes of any kind, put their bodies through…

  3. Why are the Bobcats pissing everyone off?

    Mar 10, 2010, 8:33 PM EDT

    A few weeks ago, Stephen Jackson got into it post-game with Paul Pierce after a Bobcats loss to the Celtics. Jackson made references to the Celtics not respecting the Bobcats as men. Okay, no big deal. The Celtics have quite the history of being pompous and abrasive. That kind of thing is their bag, baby.…

  4. British comedian doesn't get NBA, LA

    Mar 10, 2010, 6:47 PM EDT

    British comedian Russell Brand is big in his native land because he hosted a sister show to Big Brother (you know, the reality show that nobody here cares about each summer). You might know him best from his forgettable role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall (I say you might know him because I didn’t bother to…

  5. Ryan Hollins suspended two games

    Mar 10, 2010, 5:39 PM EDT

    Minnesota’s Ryan Hollins has been suspended for two games for his two incidents with Dallas Maverick players on Monday, the NBA league office announced today. Those suspensions start tonight, when the Timberwolves take on Denver. Which only seems fair since Denver’s front line is so banged up as well. Hollins got in a little scuffle…

  6. Kevin Martin can see the future, likes it

    Mar 10, 2010, 5:21 PM EDT

    Prediction: Next year, Kevin Martin will be an All-Star. Next year, those passes into the post that are going to Luis Scola will be going to Yao Ming. That means on the kick-outs Martin should be getting some open looks. And he can bury open looks all night long. So Martin’s numbers should be good.…

  7. Winderman: Free agent lust drives coaching changes

    Mar 10, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

    NBCsports.com’s Ira Winderman sent us his thoughts on the recent changes — and potential future changes — in the NBA coaching ranks. I am posting them for him. With clocks about to spring ahead this weekend, it only makes sense that the NBA is tending to its own brand of spring cleaning. Mike Dunleavy is…

  8. Eddie Jordan's seat getting very hot

    Mar 10, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:31 pm: And as predictably as the tides comes the denial from ownership that they have even thought about this. Of course they haven’t it’s all just a media creation. Nobody else has talked about Jordan getting fired. Peter Luukko, president and COO of Comcast-Spectacor, said Wednesday morning that Sixers management hasn’t already decided…

  9. What if the NBA's elite took a European vacation?

    Mar 10, 2010, 2:12 PM EDT

    Now starting at forward for your FC Barcelona… LeBron James. Fans of Olympiakos, welcome… Kobe Bryant Sound far-fetched? Yes. Why would the NBA’s elite go play in Europe? Because crazy, crazy things are coming. Because their contracts expired at the same time as the Collective Bargaining Agreement (if they play them out), and the players…

  10. JJ Redick is a grinder

    Mar 10, 2010, 1:19 PM EDT

    If you are Duke’s all-time leading scorer, you automatically get defined as a guy with a pretty game, a pretty shot. And JJ Redick’s jumper can be a thing of beauty. That and $3 will get you a cup of coffee in the NBA. Defenders like Shane Battier or Matt Barnes or Trevor Ariza care…

  11. Barnes, Odom still going at it on twitter

    Mar 10, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

    This makes it official — I want a Lakers/Magic NBA Finals. Only because I want more Lamar Odom and Matt Barnes on the same court as soon as possible. Let’s take you all the way back to Sunday (you remember, you woke up hungover with those stamps on your hand), when after Orlando beat Los…

  12. Lakers add new wrinkle to home court advantage at STAPLES

    Mar 10, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    Last night’s game between the Lakers and the Raptors was an absolute doozy. Toronto attacked, attacked, and attacked, and the once mighty Laker defense looked absolutely pitiful at times. Jarrett Jack got to the rim at will, Chris Bosh just put a stamp on his typically excellent production, and Andrea Bargnani threw in 21 points…

  13. Quote of the day

    Mar 10, 2010, 12:31 PM EDT

    “I’m throwing this s%#$ in the garbage. Our defense in Orlando was much better. The effort we had in Orlando will make it tough for teams to beat us four times in a series. This thing tonight was garbage.” –Kobe Bryant, on what he thought of the Lakers win over Toronto and his dramatic last-second…

  14. Yes, Kevin Durant still likes OKC

    Mar 10, 2010, 12:13 PM EDT

    Not every NBA superstar is enamored by the mythology of the big city. Kevin Durant combines the smoothness of his game with incredibly evident passion on the court, but off of it? KD’s just a chill bro. From Mike Baldwin of the Oklahoman: “I was watching the Larry Bird-Magic Johnson documentary the other day,” Durant…

  15. Jordan actually present this time around, and it's not a good thing

    Mar 10, 2010, 11:07 AM EDT

    Michael Jordan’s majority ownership of the Charlotte Bobcats was announced just over a week ago, but his approach is already drastically different. Namely, it seems like he actually cares. I’m not necessarily sold that he does, but for once, post-retirement Jordan is trying to sell us on himself the way he’s always tried to sell…

  16. LeBron already selling Knicks season seats

    Mar 10, 2010, 10:57 AM EDT

    Truly hope is an audacious thing. That, or Knicks fans are completely delusional. The more I think about it, I’m going to go with door number two here. CNBC’s Darren Rovell explains the latest delusion. In just a couple of weeks, the New York Knicks have taken deposits on 1,800 new season tickets. For those…

  17. Bulls temporarily fall out of playoff picture

    Mar 10, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    The bottom half of the Eastern Conference playoff teams may not be the best teams in the world (especially compared to their cross-conference counterparts), but each is surprisingly competitive and quite entertaining on some level or another. Plus, if you’re privileged to have NBA League Pass, you’ll be able to watch five capable, hungry teams…

  18. Alston says he left to be with suicidal sister

    Mar 10, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    Rafter Alston was not happy about losing his starting job, but that is not why he just went AWOL from the Miami Heat last week. It was about being told he was no longer going to play and deciding that looking after a twin sister who tried to take her life just a few days…

  19. Clippers do the right thing, but that's not bringing LeBron

    Mar 10, 2010, 8:41 AM EDT

    There were parts of this move that were still vintage classless Clippers. Like Mike Dunleavy saying he learned he was fired from the Internet and people calling him, not the Clippers (they said they called but didn’t get him). Or the players learning about it after the game just seconds before the media came in.…

  20. Kobe does it again

    Mar 10, 2010, 8:12 AM EDT

    Kobe Bean Bryant hits his seventh buzzer beating game winner. This season. That is a heck of a career for most, it’s a season for him. Sick.
