    Nov 8, 2013, 6:47 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo GQ

    In a world seemingly obsessed with celebrity culture, people care and follow what players do off the court. Gaming, fashion, music — fans want to know what players are into. So the NBA has launched a new site to give the people what they want called “Off the Court” and one of the first features…

  2. Steve Nash to sit Friday, still says he plans to play this season and next

    Nov 8, 2013, 6:28 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash has outraced Father Time for years, but early this season he seems as if he might finally be getting passed. Nash is meticulous and committed to taking care of his body, but the hours he puts in now are not leading to the same productivity on the court — he is averaging 7.6…

  3. Three things to watch this weekend: Can Pacers stay unbeaten?

    Nov 8, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We here at PBT don’t believe in “days off” or “sleep” or any of the rest of that pansy stuff — we will be here all weekend giving you NBA content. Still, we want to give you some NBA storylines to watch over the weekend as you bounce between your regular Saturday pickup game and getting…

  4. UPDATE: Bobcats’ coach Steve Clifford out Friday after spending night in hospital

    Nov 8, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    Steve Clifford

    UPDATE 4:17 pm: Steve Clifford will sit out the Bobcats home game against the Knicks on Friday night, the team announced on Friday afternoon. Here is part of the team’s official statement. While at dinner last night, Bobcats Head Coach Steve Clifford suffered chest pains. He went to the hospital and was later admitted. After…

  5. James Harden officially day-to-day with bruised foot

    Nov 8, 2013, 3:47 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    No, this is not an excuse for how flat-footed and slow his defense has been this season. However it appears James Harden is hurt — he is day-to-day with a bruised foot tweets Jonathan Feigen of the the Houston Chronicle. Those tend not to keep people out long if at all, and against the Lakers…

  6. Carmelo Anthony led closed door meeting with Knicks’ players after Bobcats loss

    Nov 8, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    There are dark clouds over Madison Square Garden right now (figuratively, the Weather Channel makes it sound like a normal fall day there). The Knicks are 1-3 to start the season, lost to the Bobcats at home in their last game, and now will be without Tyson Chandler — one of the two guys they…

  7. Kevin Seraphin has a remote control helicopter that is pretty sweet (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2013, 2:05 PM EDT

    Kevin Seraphin

    Ever since Snakey got away, Wizards’ big man Kevin Seraphin has been looking for something else to occupy his time. Like a remote control helicopter. This video is a promo for NBA TV’s “Inside Stuff,” and we get to see that Seraphin is good enough as a pilot to almost hit the cameraman. Nice. Hat tip to Lang…

  8. 1991 Scottie Pippen sandwich commercial is best/worst ad ever (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    This was bouncing around the interwebs today and it is simply too good not to pass along — a 1991 ad for Mr. Submarine sandwich shop featuring Scottie Pippen. “Ladies, let’s have a party.” From the shorts to the teased out 1990s hair on the cheerleaders to the large phallic sandwich that the girls get…

  9. Pistons asking Greg Monroe to work on elbow jumper

    Nov 8, 2013, 12:13 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe

    Greg Monroe is putting up numbers again — 17.3 points and 11 rebounds per game. He’s efficient doing that, as evidenced by a PER of 19.1 (a borderline All-Star kind of number). Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks wants more — he wants a midrange jumper. Monroe has taken 36 shots this season inside 8 feet (hitting…

  10. Vince Carter suspended one game for elbow to Steven Adams’ head

    Nov 8, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Vince Carter

    When this happened we told you Vince Carter could expect a league-mandated vacation, and that has come to pass. Dallas’ Carter has been suspended one game for throwing an intentional elbow to the head of Oklahoma City rookie Steven Adams. Carter will be out Friday night when the Mavericks take on the Timberwolves Carter was…

  11. Another non-update update: Kobe says he is at “challenging,” “tedious” part of rehab

    Nov 8, 2013, 10:07 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Let’s answer the big question first: No, there still is no timetable. Nobody knows when Kobe Bryant will be back on the court with the 3-3 Los Angeles Lakers. That includes Kobe Bryant. He traveled with the Lakers to Houston and no matter what he said you know he, Pau Gasol and Mike D’Antoni savored…

  12. Vintage Dwyane Wade drops 29 on Clippers (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 6

    When LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are all playing well Miami remains very, very difficult to beat. That’s what the Clippers ran into Thursday night — specifically vintage Wade. He had 29 points and 7 assists, carving up J.J. Redick (and Jamal Crawford) with both drives to the baskets and pull up jumpers.…

  13. The Extra Pass: Boxed out and Thursday’s Recaps

    Nov 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    You probably already know what I’m going to say about Shane Battier before I even say it. For 12 seasons, Battier has largely defied conventional box scores by doing all the things that don’t show up there. It’s been a long-standing feud between Battier and the box score, really, but it’s a feud that Battier…

  14. Thursday night NBA grades: Steve Blake, Ty Lawson come up big late

    Nov 8, 2013, 3:42 AM EDT

    Dwayne Wade, Erik Spoelstra, David Fizdale

    Our grades from Thursday night around the NBA, or what you missed while playing Call of Duty Ghosts like everyone else…. Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat. For two straight games now we have had vintage Wade show up, which has to make Heat fans happy. He was attacking J.J. Redick on post ups or blowing past…

  15. While world watches Dwight Howard Lakers bench earns win over Rockets

    Nov 8, 2013, 2:49 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    The narrative was all about Dwight Howard taking on the Laker team he bolted last summer after a tumultuous season — and if Lakers fans were looking for some schadenfreude they got it. Howard wasn’t impressive. He finished with 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting but just 5-of-16 from the free throw line. He missed key…

  16. Steve Blake knocks down game-winning three, lifts Lakers over Rockets (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2013, 1:19 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    While the narrative will be about the revenge of the Lakers on Dwight Howard, that’s not what really decided the Lakers 99-98 win. This game was about the backcourt: The Rockets starting guards were 10-of-34 shooting (29 percent), which falls short of the 38 percent the Lakers backcourt shot, but neither team was impressive. However…

  17. Blake Griffin with the dunk past LeBron James and Chris Bosh (VIDEO)

    Nov 7, 2013, 11:33 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Scott Machado, Derrick Favors

    The Clippers dropped their nationally televised matchup against the Heat on Thursday, but Blake Griffin had by far the best statistical effort for his team, as well as one of the better highlights. Miami’s defensive rotations broke down on this particular play late in the fourth, and Griffin took advantage by soaring past LeBron James…

  18. Dwyane Wade helps Heat pull away for win over Clippers

    Nov 7, 2013, 10:16 PM EDT

    d wade

    LeBron James is in the rare situation of being widely recognized as the game’s best player, and few would argue his position in those rankings. But what makes the Miami Heat a championship level team is the star talent surrounding James, and that starts with a healthy Dwyane Wade. Wade is still able to impact…

  19. Photos of the NBA’s sleeved Christmas Day jerseys

    nba christmas day sleeved jerseys

    The NBA and the fine folks at adidas have gotten more aggressive in their jersey marketing strategy recently, adding a version with sleeves to the rotation last season and expanding that offering to more teams during the current campaign that just began. Christmas Day is often viewed as the time that the game’s more casual…

  20. Andrew Bynum admits to considering retirement while continuing to work his way back from injury

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum,Reggie Evans

    Andrew Bynum is far from your typical NBA player. His interests are varied, and he’s one of the few in the league who treat the occupation as a job more than as his life’s true passion. Bynum didn’t play at all last season in Philadelphia due to injury, which obviously caused some consternation among that…
