    Dec 6, 2013, 6:04 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant decided to stay home from Sacramento, but he will be in the Lakers lineup Sunday night against Toronto. Steve Nash went with the Lakers up to Sacramento after a week of limited practices but nobody has any idea when we will see him. Or even if we ever will. Nash spoke with reporters…

  2. Kobe Bryant returning Sunday against Raptors

    Dec 6, 2013, 5:23 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant’s jersey has faced snow, rain and wind. Yet, it’s endured. That’s the lesson I took from the above video, which Kobe posted to Facebook today. Oh, and that Kobe will return Sunday against the Raptors. I guess he’s been through a lot, too. Sunday will mark just 240 days since he tore his…

  3. Kevin Love out Saturday vs. Heat due to death in family

  4. Mike D’Antoni: Chances “pretty good” Kobe plays Sunday… he sold that short

    Dec 6, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    UPDATE 5:37 pm: Kobe Bryant will make his return on Sunday night — he made the announcement in a Facebook video. Apparently he owns some FB stock. 3:22 pm: The Lakers are in Sacramento tonight. Kobe Bryant will be at his home in Newport Beach, trying to get his daughters to turn off the “Muppets…

  5. Kyle Korver will fire from arc Friday to set new NBA all-time three point streak

    Dec 6, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Dana Barros, a little point guard out of Massachusetts who got to play for the Celtics as part of a 14-year NBA career, and while there he set a record: Eighty-nine consecutive games with a made three. If Kyle Korver knocks down a three Friday night when the Hawks host the Cleveland Cavaliers Korver will…

  6. Report: Rockets stepping up efforts to move Omer Asik

    Dec 6, 2013, 2:19 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    I would say the fact Houston has put Omer Asik on the trade block is the worst kept secret in the NBA, except it’s not a secret. Everybody knows it. The only questions are when he gets moved and where he lands. Talks have not progressed all that quickly because while other teams come in…

  7. Nate Robinson fined $25,000 for saying officials hate him

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:54 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    “They hate me, they hate me. I don’t know why, but it is what it is. I already know I’ve got the target on my back, but I’ll play through it; I don’t care. I really don’t. It doesn’t bother me none. If I get a call, I get a call. If I don’t, I…

  8. Rumor: Carmelo Anthony recruiting Rajon Rondo to come to New York in 2015

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Two

    The USA Today has a fantastic feature speaking to Rajon Rondo’s high school coach, Steve Smith (not the player Steve Smith, different guy). It’s well done, you can learn about Rondo as a young player. Then came this interesting tidbit when Smith was asked if he thought Rondo could bounce all the way back from…

  9. Glen Davis says he’s at his lowest weight since eighth grade

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks

    Apparently Glen Davis was a big child. Very big. Big Baby just returned to the lineup for the first time since last January, when he broke a bone in his foot that took two surgeries to repair properly. He’s looked pretty good since coming back — he had 33 points in the game against Philadelphia…

  10. Report: Heat shopping Joel Anthony, seeking depth behind Wade

    Dec 6, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    Joel Anthony

    Dwyane Wade is going to be taking a lot of games off this season as the Heat try to rest his knees for the playoffs. It started in the second game of the season and it will continue as he has been out 5 of the Heat’s 19 games (he missed the Bulls game Thursday…

  11. Brook Lopez says this Nets season “more bizarre” than 12-win campaign

    Dec 6, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    Brook Lopez’s second season in the NBA the Nets went an ugly 12-70 (with him as their best player). This wasn’t a team trying to tank for the draft — the Nets got the third pick thanks to the lottery and chose Derrick Favors, who was moved in the Deron Williams deal — this was…

  12. Bargnani blows by Garnett for dunk (VIDEO), later gets ejected for trash talking him

    Dec 6, 2013, 11:12 AM EDT

    kg-bargnani

    When the Knicks got Andrea Bargnani the sales pitch from the pro-Bargnani side was he could do things Steve Novak couldn’t — play some defense in the post and put the ball on the floor and blow by guys. Whether those skills are really worth $23 million over two years is now a moot question,…

  13. LeBron not wearing new LeBron 11s, Nike “redefining” shoe for him

    Dec 6, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    LeBron 11

    LeBron James doesn’t like wearing his new shoes. I mean literally his shoes — the LeBron 11s by Nike. Usually if you have a signature shoe you wear it, and in LeBron’s case when he slips on the shoe it’s a lot of free promotion considering the spotlight on him. LeBron outsells any current player…

  14. Man pops out of inflatable mascot to propose to Bulls dancer (VIDEO)

    Dec 6, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    As Holly MacKenzie and plenty of other women will tell you, proposing to your girlfriend at a sporting event is your idea of a cool proposal, not hers. But if your girlfriend is a “Luvabulls” dancer in Chicago (that’s what they are called, it’s not my name) you can get away with it if you borrow…

  15. The Extra Pass: The shot that won’t fade away, and Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Mike Scott

    Over the years, Dirk Nowitzki has cemented his status as one of the most unguaradable players in NBA history. There have been better scorers, and there have been better shooters, but Nowitzki is second-to-none when it comes to getting his shot off. It would be easy to peg Nowitzki’s 7-foot frame as the sole reason…

  16. Thursday night NBA Grades: Mike Woodson is allowed to exhale

    Dec 6, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    Our nightly grades from around the NBA, or what you missed while singing Doe, a deer, a female deer… Ray, a drop of golden sun… Mike Woodson, coach New York Knicks. For a night, the Knicks looked pretty good and so Woodson can sleep without the Sword of Damocles hanging over his head. The core…

  17. Boozer, Bulls too much for Heat (VIDEO)

    Dec 6, 2013, 2:11 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    This is the Chicago Bulls that are hard to beat, Derrick Rose or no Derrick Rose. Since Rose went down with a torn meniscus the Bulls have struggled at both ends of the floor — they had been giving up 13 more points per 100 possessions defensively than they had with Rose. That was just…

  18. Knicks snap nine-game losing streak by crushing depleted Nets

    Dec 5, 2013, 11:21 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony reacts after scoring against Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    NEW YORK — In a game that was supposed to be a lively and competitive rivalry contest between two teams who share a city and began the year sharing aspirations of contending for a title, the end result was to fans what the entire season has been for both the Knicks and the Nets —…

  19. Kevin Garnett and Andrea Bargnani get tangled up, receive double technicals (VIDEO)

    Dec 5, 2013, 10:38 PM EDT

    kg-bargnani

    NEW YORK — The Knicks ended their nine-game losing streak with a blowout win over the Nets in Brooklyn, and early in the fourth with the game already decided Kevin Garnett and Andrea Bargnani got into a brief scuffle that resulted in both players being assessed technical fouls. Garnett is normally the one to blame…

  20. Marcin Gortat jokes Otto Porter so small he “might get destroyed”

    Dec 5, 2013, 9:53 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    Otto Porter could make his Washington Wizards debut this weekend. He has been out since before training camp with a hip flexor injury, but the No. 3 pick overall could get some NBA action soon. And teammate Marcin Gortat is worried about him. Jokingly. But Porter’s slight frame (6’9, 198 pounds) became a joke, as…
