  1. Failed Bobcats bidder may not be done with NBA yet

    Feb 27, 2010, 12:34 PM EDT

    George Postolos’ bid to become an NBA owner was foiled late last night as Michael Jordan rallied investors to become majority owner. But that doesn’t mean the Texas businessman (and former Rockets CEO) is done with his ownership pursuits. In a statement to the pres (via the Charlotte Observer), Postolos said: “I remain committed to…

  2. Durant extends latest 25+ scoring streak to one game

    Feb 27, 2010, 11:31 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant did it again. Durant scored 25 points in the Thunder’s thriller laugher abject demolition of the Wolves Friday night, extending his latest streak of games of 25 point or more to one. It is the longest such streak for him since his streak ended two days ago. After the Spurs ended the fun…

  3. With Wade out again, Miami may be bleeding itself out

    Feb 27, 2010, 10:09 AM EDT

    Our own Ira Winderman’s Tweet confirms the bummer for Heat fans. Dwyane Wade will miss Saturday’s game against the Bucks with his injured calf, and Sunday is “iffy.” It will be the fourth game Wade has missed with this injury, and the Heat are 1-2 without the man they call Flash. What’s worse, the team…

  4. Andrew Bogut is entering the top tier

    Feb 27, 2010, 8:35 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut has been thought of as a nice player for a couple of years. A big man with touch, but who suffered on a poor team and lacked the necessary components to be part of a winning formula. This year, all that’s changing. Bogut’s points are up significantly (16.2 from 11.7), and he’s averaging…

  5. Michael Jordan buys Bobcats

    Feb 27, 2010, 2:25 AM EDT

    He still is Michael Jordan. He still has that aura. How else can you explain him pulling in the needed investors to buy the Charlotte Bobcats, as AP is reporting? There’s a recession, team revenues are down, minority investors around the league’s other smaller-market franchises are trying to bail out, and there’s a looming work…

  6. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Feb 27, 2010, 2:02 AM EDT

    Our game recaps from Friday, or The Night of the Living Overtime… Mavericks 111, Hawks 103 (OT): We’ve already talked about The Play. Personally, I give this win to Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle. For the fourth quarter, down 15 with 8 minutes to go, he broke out the zone defense, and the Hawks turned into…

  7. Jason Kidd draws the contact. From Atlanta's coach.

    Feb 27, 2010, 12:47 AM EDT

    Jason Kidd is a clever a%($hole. At least his play was, drawing a technical on Atlanta coach Mike Woodson. Smart play. Good strategy. Got a technical free throw (made by Dirk), a point that helped send the game to overtime where his team went on to win. Still an a*#$hole move. Check out the video.…

  8. D'Antoni warns Gallinari becoming Darko

    Feb 26, 2010, 8:06 PM EDT

    For the past few weeks, Danilo Gallinari has faded away — he is scoring 5 fewer points a game, hitting far fewer of the shots he’s taking and generally seeming like he is back in Sant’Angelo Lodigiano. Mike D’Antoni has seen this before — from Darko Milicic. “The rookie wall? Did he hit it?” D’Antoni…

  9. Who should the Grizzlies have drafted?

    Feb 26, 2010, 7:14 PM EDT

    Behind every disastrous NBA draft selection there’s usually some solid logic at work. Detroit already had Tayshaun Prince at small forward, and were such a good team that a long-term prospect made more sense than a guy who would provide an immediate impact. When Atlanta drafted Marvin Williams over Chris Paul, plenty of reputable experts…

  10. Andrew Bynum fined $25,000

    Feb 26, 2010, 6:52 PM EDT

    The second the words came out of Andrew Bynum’s mouth, you knew this was coming. “It’s hard to play 8 on 5…When I asked one of the officials, how did you call a travel? He said, “I didn’t see a travel.” “The guy who called it looked me in my eyes and said “I didn’t…

  11. Report: Ilgauskas to re-sign with the Cavaliers

    Feb 26, 2010, 6:42 PM EDT

    UPDATE 6:42 PM:  Looks like the gun may have been jumped just a bit. According to David Aldridge, Ilgauskas’ agent says that the report Ilgauskas has chosen the Cavs is “Absolutely not true!”  ORIGINAL 6:23 PM:  According to the twitter account of Brian Windhorst, Michael Reghi of WKNR 850 is reporting that recently traded center Zydrunas…

  12. Heat's Arroyo arrested

    Feb 26, 2010, 6:03 PM EDT

    According to the Associated Press, Miami Heat guard Carlos Arroyo has been arrested for resisting arrest. Here’s the full AP story: “CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Miami Heat point guard Carlos Arroyo has been charged with resisting arrest after police say he was pulled over for driving suspiciously. The Coral Gables Police Department reports that…

  13. Rose happy with my coach Vinny

    Feb 26, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro has a French revolution’s worth of people calling for his head. But his star point guard Derrick Rose is not one of them, according to “Oh definitely, if he comes back I’ll be happy,” Rose said on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “If not, that’s not really up…

  14. Shaun Livingston joins Clippers reunion in DC

    Feb 26, 2010, 2:57 PM EDT

    Shaun Livingston — the former number four pick overall and owner of the most horrific knee injury in NBA history — is getting another chance. The Washington Wizards have picked up Livingston on a 10-day contract according to the Washington Posts’s amazing Michael Lee’s twitter account. Livingston started the season with the Thunder but could…

  15. Curry shakes, bakes Birdman

    Feb 26, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    Golden State is not a good team, but they are a fun team to watch. Stephen Curry is a lot of the reason why.

  16. Butler bitter about no straw policy

    Feb 26, 2010, 1:58 PM EDT

    Pig Miller played pretty much his entire career with a toothpick in his mouth, but suddenly Caron Butler’s straw chewing is a safety issue so big that the NBA league office needs to weigh in. Sure it is. Butler is not happy about the new banning of straws policy, and he told Jim Rome about…

  17. Crittenton wants to put gun incident behind him

    Feb 26, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    Javaris Crittenton hasn’t been doing a lot of public appearances lately, and when he does he apologizes a lot. Which is exactly what happened when his former college coach Paul Hewitt got him on his radio show on 790 The Zone in Atlanta and asked him what he wanted to say to the public about…

  18. Timberwolves set to lose $25 million

    Feb 26, 2010, 1:09 PM EDT

    Minnesota has decided to rebuild — to gut their roster, build through the draft, and lose some games in the process — in the middle of a recession. Smart basketball. Bad business. The Wolves have won only 14 of 59 games this season, and while their attendance is up over last year’s anemic figures, the…

  19. Praise, and an appraisal, for Dwight Howard

    Feb 26, 2010, 12:14 PM EDT

    Let me start by saying that despite what Mike Bianchi’s headlines would have you believe, Dwight Howard is not as great, as valuable, or as dominant as LeBron James. No one is. But that doesn’t mean that Dwight isn’t great, valuable, or dominant in his own right. Dwight Howard is, without a doubt, the most…

  20. Talking Jerry West, part two

    Feb 26, 2010, 12:09 PM EDT

    Roland Lazenby, one of the best basketball writers of our time, has penned a new book: Jerry West, the life and legend of a basketball icon. West is one of the most compelling and complex figures in basketball, and the book is a detailed look at the conditions that formed him and how that affected…
