  2. Wolves GM Kahn: Rubio will come to Minnesota

    Mar 1, 2010, 6:21 PM EDT

    After the Minnesota Timberwolves drafted superstar international prospect Ricky Rubio, Rubio elected to stay in Spain for at least another season. Many believe that he never intends to play for the Timberwolves, and is waiting for his rights to be traded to a team in a more favorable market before coming to the NBA.  Timberwolves…

  3. Welcome aboard ProHockeyTalk

    Mar 1, 2010, 5:32 PM EDT

    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…

    Mar 1, 2010, 5:19 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics guard Nate Robinson sat down with WEEI in Boston recently to talk about how things were going in New York, how he likes being a Celtic so far, and, of course, the Dunk Contest. It wasn’t until the end of the interview that Robinson talked about the event that has given him the…

    Mar 1, 2010, 5:12 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:06 pm: Reports are coming in. Two serious contenders, Cleveland and Denver will not have anything to do with Finley. The Mavericks will take a pass as well.

    Mar 1, 2010, 4:59 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks guard Michael Redd will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair a torn ACL in his left knee.

  7. LeBron, No LeBron Cavs ticket prices going up

    Mar 1, 2010, 4:55 PM EDT

    Here’s a sign the economy is turning around — the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to raise ticket prices next year. Well, that or it’s a sign that Cleveland’s management took the brown acid despite repeated warnings. The fine people at the Sports Business Journal have the details. Season-ticket prices will go up about 3 percent…

  8. Iverson out at a club this weekend

    Mar 1, 2010, 3:53 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson was not with the Philadelphia 76ers this weekend. He was not at home either, but rather at a club and event in Charlotte. Sports by Brooks has the twitter and other evidence. Iverson remains on leave from the Sixers to deal with the undiagnosed illness of his four-year-old daughter. Through all the time…

  9. Pacers suspend Jones for one game

    Mar 1, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    Solomon Jones has earned a one game suspension for the dreaded “conduct detrimental to the team.” The easy joke here is “Jones’s play has been detrimental to the team” although that’s not really true. It hasn’t been great by any stretch, but it hasn’t been detrimental (especially compared to the rest of the Pacers this…

  10. Good to know Tracy McGrady is completely delusional about LeBron

    Mar 1, 2010, 2:51 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady is getting lots and lots of attention in New York for a guy who is barely able to get time because of injury. But good for him! He’s been quieted by Houston, and now he’s out and wants to soak it in a bit. Good to be chatty, and the media loves them…

  11. Pacers waive Diener, Trail Blazers grab him

    Mar 1, 2010, 2:39 PM EDT

    Apparently everybody wants them some Travis Diener. At least somebody does. I don’t get it either, I just report the facts. The facts are that Diener has missed most of this season with a foot injury and has played in just four games for the Pacers. He came back from injury to find rookie A.J.…

  12. Michael Jordan gets beat at HORSE. Twice.

    Mar 1, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan is the kind of owner who can just stroll into practice and have a little fun. That’s what he did Monday. The new — well, technically soon-to-be, the lawyers are still “earning” their $800 an hour on this —  owner of the Charlotte Bobcats strolled in to watch his team at shoot around…

  13. No slowing down Andray Blatche

    Mar 1, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    To say that Andray Blatche is on a roll wouldn’t be telling the half of it. He’s been a woefully inconsistent player during his time in the NBA, but with the benefit of a bit more playing time and a bigger role within the Wizards’ offense, his season (and his career) have absolutely taken off.…

  14. Brooklyn Arena another step closer to reality

    Mar 1, 2010, 1:02 PM EDT

    Great news Brooklyn — you’re that much closer to having a six-win team play in your back yard. Break out the champagne and Beluga caviar. State development officials can seize properties in the footprint of developer Bruce Ratner’s Atlantic Yards project through eminent domain, a state court ruled on Monday morning, removing the most significant…

  15. Paul Westphal and Spencer Hawes: the best of friends

    Mar 1, 2010, 12:47 PM EDT

    Things have been pretty heavy in Sacramento lately, between the seemingly petty benching of Spencer Hawes over a harmless comment about playing time, head coach Paul Westphal’s head-on collision with the trials of real life, and a constant struggle to get back to the Kings’ early season glory days. In some cases, events such as…

  16. NBA power rankings

    Mar 1, 2010, 12:18 PM EDT

    Our weekly NBA rankings, where we would like to think there is a good reason to believe the Mavericks or Magic could beat the Lakers or Cavaliers in a seven-game series. But we’re not there yet. 1. Lakers (45-15) They play in cruise control most o the time, but when they focus — like they…

  17. Jason Kidd, Dwight Howard adjusting the record books

    Mar 1, 2010, 12:13 PM EDT

    Two players destined for the Hall of Fame did their part to etch their names into history a bit early this weekend. Jason Kidd, who is already 2nd in NBA history in career assists, moved past Maurice Cheeks for sole ownership of the 4th spot on the NBA’s all-time steals list. John Stockton currently sits…

  18. Mark Blount waived by Minnesota, world yawns

    Mar 1, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Let’s see just how desperate some teams are for an extra big man down the stretch. Marc Stein is twittering the Minnesota Timberwolves have waived Mark Blount today, freeing him in time so that another team can pick him up and have him on their playoff roster. Blount is a seven-foot, 230 pound big body,…

  19. Nuggets didn't get the memo on Ilgauskas

    Mar 1, 2010, 11:35 AM EDT

    Zydrunas Ilgauskas is a fine basketball player. He’s been as solid as a rock for Cleveland over the years, and though his old, tired legs aren’t quite the injured, tired legs they used to be, he’s still a worthy contributor for a team that’s going places. But make no mistake: that team that’s going places…

  20. Kobe plays down J.R. Smith's Twitter jab

    Mar 1, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    J.R. Smith got a fair bit of attention when he said, via his Twitter account, that “kobe is great but not when he play me.” Rightfully so. It’s quite the statement for a hot-scoring guard but mercurial problem child, especially considering that on the other side of his tweet lies one of the greatest players…
