Is this the Miami Heat’s Los Angeles Lakers imitation? The Miami Heat will be without three starters — Dwyane Wade, Greg Oden and Mario Chalmers — plus sixth man Ray Allen for Friday night’s game in Detroit, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN. So if LeBron James didn’t think he was already carrying enough load……

Dirk Nowitzki will be a free agent this summer but you don’t hear his name tossed around because he has already said he will re-sign in Dallas, and at a significantly reduced rate. He’s hinted at signing for a couple more years then walking away. However his German mentor, Holger Geschwindner (the guy that came…

Hakeem Olajuwon was in Houston Thursday night to watch the Sixers make history. I guess he likes to watch bad basketball. Anyway, he signed a ball which was thrown into the crowd for one lucky fan. That fan turned out to be former Major League baseball player Tuffy Rhodes (hat tip Deadspin) who then turns around and…

To this point, Fred Hoiberg has done nothing but be loyal to Iowa State and build up that university’s basketball program (they are on to the Sweet 16 this year). He has shot down every query from other institutions or teams that have come his come his way. However, because he has NBA experience —…

The Rockets’ starting point guard going to get a second opinion, but if he is out for the playoffs that is not good news for a team on the cusp of contention. It means more Jeremy Lin, but he’s not the defender Beverley is.

UCLA’s Zach LaVine is what scouts could call “bouncy.” The 6’5” swingman has real hops and athleticism, some solid handles and he shot 38.4 percent from three this season — and he is taking his game to the NBA next season, his father told the Los Angeles Daily News.

The Philadelphia 76ers’ rebuild is all about timing. Right now, they’re in the stage of acquiring elite young talent. They drafted Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel last summer, and as long as neither player is yet good enough to lift the 76ers from the NBA’s basement, Philadelphia is eyeing even more elite young talent. This…
