  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.…

  4. 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…

  5. 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quick penetrating point guard that struck fear into the hearts of teams across the land and led the Spurs to titles has been replaced by a slower, not quite as good shooting version.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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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.…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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,…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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,…

  14. Evans generating some serious political capital

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    Maybe political strategists have been wrong all along. The key to bipartisanship isn’t offering an olive branch, finding balance, or making compromises. It’s just finding the best damn rookie on the planet and parking him in your city (are you taking notes, Ernie Grunfeld?). Former NBAer and current mayor of Sacramento Kevin Johnson teamed up…

  15. Crisis in China: Yao's baby could be American

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    Want to know what the celebrity gossip is in China? Of course you do, who doesn’t? One of my goals in life was always to be a Chinese gossip columnist, so here goes: Yao Ming’s baby could be born in America — and that would be a national disgrace. Yao and his wife Ye Li…

  16. Reggie Evans: NBA's dirtiest player

    Mar 3, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    You’ll get no argument from Chris Kaman. Sports Illustrated polled 173 NBA players — secret ballot, of course, that’s how we do things in America — and found that Toronto’s Reggie Evans is considered the dirtiest player in the NBA (winning 21 percent of the vote). If you want to know why, check out the…

  17. Phil Jackson likes Jordan the owner

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:47 AM EDT

    In what can only be described as the opposite of a stunning revelation, Phil Jackson has said good things about Michael Jordan. This time it was about Jordan the team owner. “I think it’s a great opportunity for him,” Jackson said before the Los Angeles Lakers’ game against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday. “I think…

  18. You can never get enough Durant dunking

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:24 AM EDT

    If there is one thing that if fun to watch, it is Oklahoma City in transition.

  19. Cleveland, Ilgauskas start inevitable dance

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:08 AM EDT

    Like the guy in the red uniform that beams down with Captain Kirk and Spock to the planet, we all know how some things are going to end. (Poorly for that guy.) Same with the the Zydrunas Ilgauskas courtship. The Boston Celtics — desperate to add anyone, to the point they are seriously talking to…

  20. Knicks think LeBron isn't coming

    Mar 3, 2010, 8:57 AM EDT

    The smart money has always been on LeBron staying in Cleveland. That’s about as exciting as rose bush pruning, but it’s the truth. We in the media don’t write about it much because speculation of him shaking up the NBA with a move is a lot more fun — and gets a lot more hits.…
