    There may never have been a better pure shooter to play the game than Reggie Miller. That’s the kind of player that should end up in the Hall of Fame. And he might, Miller appears the most likely NBA player for induction on the ballot for the Naismith Hall of Fame, with the players nominated…

  2. How DeMarcus Cousins is securing Paul Westphal’s job

    Nov 30, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Paul Westphal

    There are problems with the Sacramento Kings — they are not good and seem to be getting worse. They are a terrible shooting team that has the fourth worst offense in the NBA despite having Tyreke Evans in it. Their defense isn’t much better — and it’s all slipping, they are 1-9 in their last…

  3. Larry Brown expects Stephen Jackson to just keep getting technicals

    Nov 30, 2010, 11:36 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Orlando Magic

    Stephen Jackson got ejected in the first quarter Saturday night for arguing with the referee. This was not one of those lame new “respect the game” technicals where he got T’d up for a fist pump or accidentally glancing in the direction of a referee — Jackson thought he was fouled on a drive and…

    Last night after beating the Wizards, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade spoke and said they felt far more comfortable playing along side each other, that they are learning. Watch the video below.

    Nov 30, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    Delonte West

    Delonte West went under the knife Tuesday morning so doctors could surgically repair his broken wrist, according to ESPN Boston. Afterwards we should have a better recovery timeline for West.

    The Miami Heat miss Udonis Haslem, who is out with a broken foot. They miss his rebounding. They miss his versatility on the defensive end. Those are things they will really need come the playoffs, and Haslem hopes to be back by then. He hopes to be back by April he told Tim Reynolds of…

  7. Kings assign Hassan Whiteside to the D-League

    Nov 30, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

    whiteside

    This is exactly how NBA teams should use the D-League. Hassan Whiteside is just a ridiculous athlete, but he’s still figuring out how to play basketball at the NBA level. He needs time on the court, something Paul Westphal can’t really give him in Sacramento right now. So Whiteside has been assigned to the D-League’s…

  8. Heat organization, Spoelstra in particular standing up to LeBron

    Nov 30, 2010, 8:47 AM EDT

    James_tired

    We mentioned something that seemed quite clear in our post about Heat players being unhappy with Erik Spoelstra — that leak had to come from either LeBron James camp or CAA, the agency that represents all of the Heat’s big three. Just people trying to protect their players by shifting blame to the coach. Adrian…

  9. Monta Ellis is tearing it up

    Nov 30, 2010, 8:14 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Golden State Warriors

    There may be no more entertaining player to watch in the league right now than Monta Ellis. There are better ones, but few people are putting on a show every time they hit the court quite like Ellis this season. Warrior fans finally have owners trying to figure out how to make it work the…

    What you missed while trying to figure out if NASA has discovered a form of extraterrestrial life… Heat 105, Wizards 94: Dwyane Wade had 22 in the second half and the big three of the Heat combined for 76 of the team’s points. The Heat were balanced and their big guns attacked and got to…

  11. Game of the night: The Thunder are getting their groove back

    durant-dunk_2

    Teams don’t really win games when they shoot 37.8 percent for the night. However, Oklahoma City did  Thursday, and did it with defense. Or at least a spurt of good defense, when the went on a late 13-0 run and pulled out the 95-89 win against the Hornets Monday. That the Thunder won this and…

  12. LeBron James, Erik Spoelstra have pregame meeting

    Nov 29, 2010, 9:30 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    Officially, no air was cleared. We all know that’s what it was — a clear the air meeting — but officially no. Erik Spoelstra and LeBron James had a 30-minute closed door meeting before the team’s game against the Wizards Monday, talking about their relationship and the team. And probably about having fun. “I call…

  13. Everything about Dwight Howard’s free throws is wrong

    Nov 29, 2010, 7:54 PM EDT

    Howard Free Throws

    Dwight Howard is a bad free throw shooter. We all know this. Howard is a career 59.6% free throw shooter, and this season Howard is only making 53.8% of his free throws. If you’ve watched any Magic games this season, you know that Dwight now takes a really, really long time to shoot his free…

  14. Wall, Yi will miss Miami game with injuries

    Nov 29, 2010, 7:11 PM EDT

    John Wall Practice Dance

    According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, both John Wall and Yi Jianlian will miss tonight’s Heat-Wizards tilt due to knee injuries. Wall has missed five of his last seven games, and he had his worst performance as a pro in his most recent game. Yi has missed the last seven Heat games. This is a bummer…

  15. Quote of the Day: LeBron says that everything is completely relatively fine between him and Spoelstra

    Nov 29, 2010, 6:53 PM EDT

    Spoelstra_cringe

    “”I didn’t realize. I don’t think Coach realized it either, until it was brought up to our attention. Incidental contact.” – Heat forward LeBron James on the “bump” that recently occurred on the court between James and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. LeBron and Spoelstra then went on to say some semi-reassuring things about the state…

    According to ESPN Chicago’s Nick Friedell, Bulls forward Carlos Boozer practiced for the first time in two months on Monday and may be ready to play against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday: Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau liked what he saw of Boozer in practice. “He looked fine. He was very active,” Thibodeau said. “He didn’t…

  17. DeMarcus Cousins kicked out of Sacramento practice

    Nov 29, 2010, 6:21 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    Remember how at Summer League a lot of people were watching DeMarcus Cousins play and saying, “how did he drop all the way to No.5?” (I’m sheepishly raising my hand…) Well, um, the rumors of him being difficult to deal with are apparently more than rumors. DeMarcus Cousins was kicked out of Kings practice today…

  18. Dwyane Wade in the middle of everything wrong with Miami

    Nov 29, 2010, 5:59 PM EDT

    Wade_Mavs

    Dwyane Wade remains the beating heart of the Miami Heat. He remains the focus, the center of the storm. The Heat are struggling in part because he is struggling — with his shot, with how to play along side LeBron, with the offense, and maybe with this coach. And until he figures it out, the…

    Nov 29, 2010, 5:10 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    The NBA has seen a lot of fantastic rebounders in its history, but never before has the the league seen so many prolific board men grace its courts at one time. Even during the all-or-nothing days, the Vanishing Point days, the Dirty Mary Crazy Larry days, the NBA typically boasted just one or a few…
