Rather than spread his salary out over years, the Lakers are going to bring Steve Nash back, as well as Kendall Marshall. Mike D’Antoni… I wouldn’t bet on that one.

The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

On Feb. 5, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Lakers, who literally ran out of players. That was the low point for Cleveland, which had already made its big splash by trading for Luol Deng and still lost six straight to fall to 12th – behind Boston! – in a putrid Eastern Conference. The season…

Shawn Marion is one of just six players drafted in 1999 who are still in the NBA.* (That was 15 years ago, Mr. Boeheim.) *Elton Brand, Andre Miller, Jason Terry (barely), Andrei Kirilenko and Manu Ginobili are the others. It’s quite the impressive career for a player who has been so reliant on athleticism. Marion…

So you’re saying there’s a chance. If you’re a diehard Cavaliers fan you can believe there is still a chance your team makes the playoffs — Cleveland is 2.5 games back of an eighth-seed Hawks team in free fall, and the Knicks close out the season with seven straight games against +.500 teams. Cleveland needs…

The Portland Trail Blazers began the season a red-hot 31-9. Since, they’ve gone an underwhelming 17-18 – but that 35-game stretch has produced a better winning percentage than Portland had in either of the last two seasons. All success is relative. Though Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts is no longer the Coach of the Year…

Aaron Gordon, in some years, would be a top-three draft pick. Not 2014, though. In this loaded draft, Gordon hasn’t even broken into the consensus top six occupied by Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker, Julius Randle, Dante Exum and Marcus Smart. Instead, Gordon is hanging in the next tier with with Noah Vonleh, trying…

Well, at least he’s not in North Korea. Instead Dennis Rodman is in Argentina on an NBA legends tour that includes another Hall of Famer in Gary Payton and guys such as Latrell Sprewell. Rodman is still drawing attention to himself playing in the game with a spiked blond mohawk wig and wearing lipstick and…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while telling your wife to be you want to spend $3,000 to live tweet your wedding… LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. Aldridge returns to the lineup and the struggling Blazers rattle off three straight wins. It’s not a coincidence. Aldridge finished with 28 points (10-of-20…

That makes 38 games in a row that Kevin Durant has scored at least 25 points — that streak and his consistency this season is the reason he will take home the MVP. He scored 31 Sunday and made it look easy going 9-of-13 from the field against the Utah Jazz as the Thunder cruised…
