  1. Meyers Leonard did not respect his elder, dunked on Andre Miller (VIDEO)

    Feb 28, 2013, 3:54 PM EST

    Meyers Leonard

    These kids today, they have no respect anymore. Not for their elders, not for the guys with some great old man game. Andre Miller may have the best old man game in the league — he is just smart out there on the court — but even his young man game was not going to…

  2. North Korea wanted Jordan, eventually settled for Rodman

    Feb 28, 2013, 3:32 PM EST

    Retired U.S. NBA basketball player Rodman is welcomed by Son, Vice Chairman of North Korea's Olympic Committe, as he arrives in Pyongyang

    If you had to choose between Michael Jordan and Dennis Rodman… why am I even asking this? We’d all make the same choice. North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is the same way — he’s actually an NBA fan, particularly the 1990s Bulls just like his late father (Kim Jong Il). Seriously. Vice Media sent…

  3. NBA beer costs: Suns, Knicks most expensive; Thunder, Spurs the cheapest.

    beer, bud light, drinks, fans, holiday

    If you are suffering through Suns games this season, you could use a beer or two. But it’s going to cost you. Cork Gaines Business Insider put together a list of the beer prices at stadiums around the NBA and found that the Knicks and Suns were at the top of the list charging $9…

  4. Report: Four teams have conversations with Amundson

    Feb 28, 2013, 2:36 PM EST

    Lou Amundson

    Around this time of year, with the playoffs looming and growing closer, teams start to think about adding a little bit of veteran depth to the roster. Guys that will not get a lot of run but can be trusted in small roles, plus will be professional in practice and preparation. That’s where Louis Amundson…

  5. Report: Cavs, Casspi talking buyout, Rockets could grab him

    Feb 28, 2013, 1:52 PM EST

    Omri Casspi

    Omri Casspi just hasn’t worked out in Cleveland. The forward from Israel showed promise early on in Sacramento but had fallen out of the Cavaliers rotation this season, and that was before his appendectomy recently that will have him out a month at least. So the Cavaliers are talking about a buyout, reports Marc Stein…

  6. Pierce says he’s just going to have to play through neck pain

    Feb 28, 2013, 1:06 PM EST

    Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce has a pinched nerve in his neck. So yes, that hurts. The hope is that the Celtics mini-vacation from the schedule makers — after their Monday win over Utah the only other game for a week is Friday against the Warriors (Avery Bradley on Stephen Curry should be fun) — would help Pierce’s…

  7. Now you can finally get that Mike Conley debit card you always wanted

    Feb 28, 2013, 11:55 AM EST

    Mike Conley Debit Card

    The real question is, who DOESN’T want a Goran Dragic or Mike Conley debit card? The fine folks at Card.com have some funky pre-paid debit cards you can order — James Dean, Betty Paige, Brett Favre, the Three Stooges — and in their latest batch is Phoenix’s Goran Dragic and Memphis’ Mike Conley. Thanks to…

  8. Kenyon Martin says it was humbling to be left on NBA sidelines

    Feb 28, 2013, 11:33 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Kenyon Martin was back on an NBA court Wednesday night, playing his first game as a member of the New York Knicks. He played just five minutes and had zeros across the box score, but with the news that Rasheed Wallace is out for the rest of the regular season (at least) the odds Martin…

  9. Off the court, Stoudemire remains committed to youth literacy

    Feb 28, 2013, 11:09 AM EST

    Amare Stoudemire

    Amar’e Stoudemire didn’t read a lot in his youth. Which means he was like most young people today — in a digital, video-game world getting children to read regularly is not an easy thing. Especially when those kids don’t relate to the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” or the other books out there. Stoudemire wanted…

  10. Beno Udrih latest to pile on Scott Skiles coaching style

    Feb 28, 2013, 10:44 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Phoenix Suns

    Not many players would have been happy being shipped from a playoff bound Milwaukee Bucks to an Orlando Magic team that got routed by the Sacramento Kings Wednesday night. But such was the atmosphere with the Bucks under former coach Scott Skiles that Beno Udrih is happy with the trade. And he wasn’t just saying…

  11. Steve Nash says he wouldn’t change thing about his decision

    Feb 28, 2013, 9:15 AM EST

    Steve Nash, Darren Collison

    Steve Nash is not one for regret. When he decided to leave Phoenix to chase a ring the last couple years of his career he had plenty of suitors — the Knicks really wanted him in Manhattan, Toronto back in Canada, and other teams had inquired. But Nash chose the Lakers to be close to…

    New York Knicks' Felton comes down on Golden State Warriors' Curry after trying to block his shot in their NBA basketball game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the rest of the legendary “pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?” commercial…. Knicks 109, Warriors 105: Stephen Curry was the story… except for the part where his team didn’t win the game. That’s not on him — 54 points…

  13. Watch Stephen Curry knock down shot after shot against Knicks (VIDEO)

    Feb 28, 2013, 7:59 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors' Curry dances down court after he hit a three-point shot against New York Knicks in their NBA basketball game in New York

    Stephen Curry put on a show for the ages at Madison Square Garden — he was playing in Jordan/Kobe/LeBron air on the big stage. He only needed a sliver of daylight to knock down a three (11-of-13 from beyond the arc) and he could put the ball on the floor and create space to shoot…

  14. Three Stars of the Night: It’s Stephen Curry’s world

    Feb 28, 2013, 2:24 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    This was the most exciting night of NBA action this season. That sadly meant a lot of good performances get left off the list — Monta Ellis had 27 points and the game winner, DeMar DeRozan dropped 33, Tyson Chandler had 28 rebounds, and the list goes on. But these guys finished on top —…

  15. Stephen Curry scores a career-high 54 points as Warriors lose to Knicks

    Feb 28, 2013, 12:09 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors' Curry and New York Knicks' Anthony wait for a rebound in their NBA basketball game in New York

    There are nights when guys get hot, and there are nights where guys are simply on fire. Stephen Curry gave us an exciting taste of the latter on Wednesday, pouring in a career-high 54 points while absolutely shooting the lights out, knocking down 11 of his 13 attempts from three-point distance. Curry’s amazing performance wasn’t…

  16. Monta Ellis hits an incredible game-winner to beat the Rockets (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 11:03 PM EST

    Monta Ellis

    It wasn’t the most efficient nights for Monta Ellis, but when it was all said and done, it will go down as one of his more effective. Ellis shot just 9-24 from the field, and made only two of his six attempts from three-point distance. But he finished with game-highs in points (27), assists (13),…

  17. Dwight Howard surprises fans at adidas photo shoot (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 10:19 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    It’s always cool when fans are surprised and get to meet one of the biggest stars who plays for their hometown team, and that’s what adidas pulled off in Los Angeles during a photo opportunity with Dwight Howard. Fans lined up to take pictures, but had no idea Howard would be there inside to pose…

  18. Wizards broadcaster mistakes an airball for the game-winning shot (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 9:35 PM EST

    Nene, Bradley Beal, Randy Wittman, Trevor Ariza, Martell Webster

    It was so close. The Wizards trailed the Pistons by a single point with just over 12 seconds remaining on Wednesday, and as the ball went to Trevor Ariza in the corner with the game clock winding down, he launched what at first glance appeared to be a game-winning three-pointer that looked like it went…

    Feb 27, 2013, 7:46 PM EST

    East All-Star Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers competes in the three-point contest during the NBA basketball All-Star weekend in Houston

    Kyrie Irving is sitting out the Cavaliers game against the Raptors on Wednesday, which was to be expected. When he missed Tuesday’s game we told you that this was likely. But in announcing he is out there is an interesting note from Bob Finnan of the News Herald on twitter. Cavs guard Kyrie Irving had…
