  1. Charles Barkley doesn’t think fans should be voting for All-Star starters

    Jan 3, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Tahoe Celebrity Golf

    Charles Barkley thinks you’re wrong. Probably about a lot of things, but in this case he’s talking about your All-Star voting. Each and every one of you. For years the NBA has had the fans vote in the starters for each conference at the All-Star Game — and Barkley thinks you have got it all…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nets, Warriors get statement wins

    Jan 3, 2013, 8:01 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets' Williams drives against Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while figuring out what’s in and what’s out for 2013… Nets 110, Thunder 93: Well, P.J. Carlesimo has his signature win and for a night the Nets looked like the team from the first weeks of the season. Oh, they’re…

  3. Three Stars of the night: Getting your team wins against elite

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:58 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There were so many people who could have made three stars of the night tonight we could have done 10 stars of the night. But, for the sake of my sanity (such as it is) we are keeping it at three. So how do you separate the top three? It’s not just numbers, but who…

  4. Blake Griffin has awkward fall after flagrant foul by Ezeli (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2013, 1:08 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Blake Griffin starts his drive from the top of the key, goes right and blows by Festus Ezeli and as he starts to elevate for the shot Ezeli hooks his arm. The result is an awkward and ugly foul that earned Ezeli a flagrant one foul. Griffin laid on the ground for a little bit grabbing his head…

  5. Kevin Durant ejected late in Thunder’s home loss to Nets (VIDEO)

    Jan 2, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant reacts after not getting a foul call against the Miami Heat in the fourth quarter during Game 2 of the NBA basketball finals in Oklahoma City

    With under two minutes remaining and a home loss to the Nets almost certainly at hand, Kevin Durant let frustration get the best of him. He argued an illegal screen call on teammate Kendrick Perkins, and was issued two quick technicals from the nearby official, which resulted in an automatic ejection. For almost anyone else…

  6. Quincy Douby scored 75 in Chinese league game (VIDEO)

    Jan 2, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Quincy Douby

    There was a time, way back in 2007, when there was hope for Quincy Douby to become a solid NBA contributor for the Sacramento Kings. Well, Kings fans didn’t really think that but Reggie Theus did the coach. Which explains a lot about Reggie Theus the coach. Douby has taken his gunner game to China…

  7. Mo Williams to undergo surgery on thumb, will miss at least six weeks

    Jan 2, 2013, 8:55 PM EDT

    Mo Williams

    The Utah Jazz have lost Mo Williams for at least six weeks due to a thumb injury that will require surgery, the team announced on Wednesday. Williams has started all 24 games he’s appeared in this season before suffering the injury back on Dec. 23 during his team’s loss to the Heat. From the official…

  8. Wednesday And-1 Links: Is Serge Ibaka the NBA’s most improved?

    Jan 2, 2013, 8:22 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Ibaka plays against San Antonio Spurs during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Kevin Durant for NBA Most Improved Player? Over at Sports Illustrated, Rob Mahoney…

  9. No surgery needed, Tyreke Evans could play next week

    Jan 2, 2013, 7:08 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Tobias Harris

    Finally, some good news for Kings fans. Tyreke Evans, who has missed eight games with a sore knee, got a second opinion on said knee that concurred with the first — no surgery is needed and he could be back soon, the team announced. The second opinion on the sore left knee of Sacramento Kings…

  10. Snowed out Bulls at Pacers game rescheduled for Feb. 4

    Jan 2, 2013, 5:42 PM EDT

    Christmas Weather

    When a blizzard shut down a lot of the transportation in Indianapolis the day after Christmas, the NBA decided to postpone the Bulls game vs. the Pacers that night. The decision seemed the right one (from my warm seat thousands of miles away) but was odd only in that the Bulls had gotten into town…

  11. Pistons’ Villanueva fined $25,000 for foul on Kings’ Thomas

    Jan 2, 2013, 5:34 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    You kind of knew this was coming — once Charlie Villanueva was ejected for a flagrant two foul on the Kings’ Isaiah Thomas Tuesday night you had to expect a fine to follow. It did, the league announced a $25,000 fine for Villanueva on Wednesday. To not fine Villanueva would violate standard NBA procedure and…

  12. Steve Nash says Sixers Jrue Holiday should be an All-Star

    Jan 2, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Jrue Holiday

    Is Jrue Holiday an All-Star player? Holiday wants to be and after he dropped 26 points and 10 assists on the Lakers Tuesday night Steve Nash told the Los Angeles Times he thinks Holiday should be. (Insert your own joke about playing like an All-Star against Steve Nash’s defense here.) “Obviously they’re a different team…

  13. Quote of the Day: Derrick Favors not Kevin Love’s biggest fan

    Jan 2, 2013, 4:52 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    “(Kevin Love is) just like any other stretch 4 in the league…probably a better rebounder but pretty much like every other stretch 4.” —Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors, talking about Kevin Love with Timberwolves radio play-by-play guy Alan Horton.  If you want to debate whether Love is really a guy you can build a franchise…

  14. Denver signed JaVale McGee $44 million last summer. Kosta Koufos starts.

    Jan 2, 2013, 3:17 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets

    Last season, the Denver Nuggets were willing to move a quality (if often injured) big man in Nene for JaVale McGee. Then last summer they inked McGee to a four-year, $44 million contract to be part of the future in Denver. If you have watched a Nuggets game recently — or even looked at a…

  15. Stephen Jackson not exactly complimentary of Bucks organization

    Jan 2, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    stephen-jackson-spurs

    Saying that Stephen Jackson didn’t enjoy his brief time in Milwaukee a season ago would be an understatement. He appeared in just 26 games, before a falling out with Bucks head coach Scott Skiles had him riding the bench and not traveling with the team while a trade to send him out of town was…

  16. NBA’s top 10 circus shots of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Jan 2, 2013, 2:06 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Okay, this is the last of the 2012 retrospective videos… probably. It’s a fun compilation from NBA.com and includes some big stars, although I’m not sure it’s fair to put Kobe Bryant on there because he probably practiced that shot 500 times one summer. Not sure I would have had Darren Collison on top, I…

  17. Stan Van Gundy says John Wall not good enough for Wizards to build around

    Jan 2, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    The Wizards are unquestionably the worst team in the league this season. At a record of just 4-25, Washington has four fewer wins than the Bobcats team that just finished up an 18-game losing streak. Things are not only dismal in Washington, but few see any sign that the franchise has even begun to put…

  18. JaVale McGee hits first ever three, celebrates by trying to cool off hot hand (VIDEO)

    Jan 2, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    This should have been the moment Clippers fans realized the streak was about to die — JaVale McGee had never hit an NBA three pointer before but he drained this one. But my favorite part is the celebration — blowing on his fingers to cool them off. Classic JaVale. By the way, I love the…

  19. Grant Hill hopes to be playing for Clippers later this month

    Jan 2, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    A lot of NBA coaches wish they had Vinny Del Negro’s problem — too many talented players to give minutes to. Because the Clippers are winning there is little grumbling, but it’s a challenge Del Negro and others have admitted to. Soon there will be another wing player demanding minutes on the active roster. Grant…

  20. Report: If Nets don’t land Phil Jackson they may stick with Carlesimo for season

    Jan 2, 2013, 11:34 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    This much we know — the New Jersey Nets big plan to replace Avery Johnson starts with Phil Jackson. They want the biggest name out there, the guy with 11 championship rings, to come in and make the whole better than the sum or its parts with this Nets team. I still don’t think he…
