  1. Steven Adams shakes his own hand after Byron Mullens snubs him (VIDEO)

    Nov 22, 2013, 11:10 AM EDT

    Steven Adams

    Byron Mullens is frustrated and falling out of the Clippers rotation — he played less than five minutes against the Thunder on Thursday night. The reason is when he is on the court the Clippers’ defensive numbers are a disaster. Can’t really fault Doc Rivers there. But Mullens was on the court at the end…

  2. Billy Hunter suit says Kobe and his agent pushed him to take 50/50 labor deal

    Yao Ming & Kobe Bryant Attend NBA Fans Appreciation Day

    In case you forgot, ousted National Basketball Players Association (NBPA, the players’ union) executive director Billy Hunter is suing the union and its president Derek Fisher in an effort to make sure he gets paid well on his way out the door in the interests of justice. Remember Hunter was voted out by the players…

  3. DeAndre Jordan’s monster rejection of Russell Westbrook (VIDEO)

    Nov 22, 2013, 10:03 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    There is no more athletic center in the NBA than DeAndre Jordan (maybe JaVale McGee, it’s close). He’s fast and leaps out of the building. Which why he has some spectacular blocks, like this one on Russell Westbrook Thursday night. Best part of this? Jordan didn’t swat it into the third row, rather it stayed…

  4. Owner James Dolan opens up about Knicks: Woodson is safe, and yes, he thinks they can win it all

    Nov 22, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    Knicks’ owner James Dolan talks to the media about as often Halley’s Comet swings by earth — it had been six years since he did a sit down interview with a media member. Until this week, when he sat down with the New York Post to talk all things Knicks. Dolan comes off as a…

  5. The Extra Pass: Busting myths surrounding Blake Griffin, and Thursday’s recaps

    Nov 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    In his first season playing in the league, Blake Griffin crushed any and all expectations. Now, just a few years later, he can’t seem to get out from under the weight of them. Without diving in too deep as to why that is, it’s probably fair to say that Griffin isn’t treated as even-handedly as…

  6. Thursday night NBA Grades: The Thunder bench was niiiice

    Nov 22, 2013, 2:31 AM EDT

    Thunder hudle

    A few grades from the two NBA games Thursday night, or what you missed while you were watching Ron Burgundy sing Loverboy tunes… Oklahoma City Thunder bench. The starters staked the team a lead but the Thunder bench carried that over and got the win over the Clippers Thursday night. Jeremy Lamb had 11 points…

  7. Thunder race out to early lead, get comfortable win over Clippers

    Nov 22, 2013, 1:17 AM EDT

    Reggie Jackson Thunder

    If you watched Thursday night’s Thunder win over the Clippers, and compared it to the first time these two teams met — at least up to the point in that first game when Serge Ibaka was ejected — you could come away saying that the Thunder are just flat out better than the Clippers. At…

  8. Another game, another Thunder fan hits $20,000 half court shot (this one got Jay-Z hand shake)

    Nov 21, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder- Game One

    Do the fans in Oklahoma City just head to the gym and practice half-court shots? For the second straight game a Thunder fan hit a half-court shot to win $20,000. That is five made in the last 22 home games in OKC. Seriously, I’m not sure Stephen Curry hits that high a percentage from half…

  9. Clippers’ Matt Barnes to have surgery to repair retinal tear, out two weeks

    Nov 21, 2013, 9:14 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    The Clippers need Matt Barnes off the bench — he’s about the only guy off the bench who could be considered a plus defender — but they are going to be without him for a couple weeks. Barnes is going to have surgery to repair a retinal tear in his left eye, the team announced…

  10. After missing two games, Dwyane Wade likely back on court Saturday

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

    d wade

    The Miami Heat are big on preventative maintenance with Dwyane Wade’s knees this season — he sat out the second game of the season. He also sat out the last two (both Heat wins). But he is expected back Saturday, reports Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a…

  11. J.R. Smith doesn’t think it’s too early to hit Knicks’ panic button

    Nov 21, 2013, 6:49 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    It’s too early to hit the panic button with the Knicks. Yes, they are off to an ugly 3-8 start, but it’s too early to panic. First, they will get Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton back healthy. Second, the offense will come around once those two are back — last season the Knicks had the…

  12. Dwight Howard fined $25,000 for flipping ball at heckler

    Nov 21, 2013, 6:14 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    We told you this morning a fine was likely coming for this — the league gets very protective of the fans in the high-priced seats. While the Dallas Mavericks were making their fourth quarter comeback Wednesday night, a frustrated Dwight Howard tossed the ball at a fan heckling him. It wasn’t thrown, nobody got hurt,…

  13. LeBron talking to David Beckham about bringing MLS team to Miami

    Nov 21, 2013, 4:54 PM EDT

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    David Beckham wants to bring a Major League Soccer franchise to Miami. All he needs is a place for the team to play, a bunch of investors who think bringing a soccer team to Miami is a good idea, and then it’s just a simple matter of building an entire professionals sports franchise from the…

  14. Kobe Bryant sat out Thursday Lakers practice with mild Achilles soreness

    Nov 21, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    The expectations in Los Angeles are out of control. The reality is that no matter your will power or conditioning, a ruptured Achilles tendon is tough to come back from. It can be done, but the process is not smooth, it has fits and starts. Even for Kobe Bryant, who practiced Tuesday and Wednesday with…

  15. Mavericks’ new “Hulk” promo is awesome (VIDEO)

    Nov 21, 2013, 3:08 PM EDT

    Incredible hulk

    That may be my new favorite in-game promo ever… and it’s pretty much what the Mavs did to the Rockets in the fourth quarter Wednesday. In case you are not familiar that is a modified scene from “The Avengers” where the usually rampaging Hulk is a little more focused for a minute on the bad…

  16. League executives talk ‘Melo, say he’s not the alpha dog on a title team

    Nov 21, 2013, 2:43 PM EDT

    carmelo Antnony

    The New York Knicks No. 1 offseason goal: re-sign Carmelo Anthony. That is also goal No. 2, 3, and 4. Maybe 5 as well. To do that they are going to sell hope — they have no cap space this summer, no draft pick in 2014, they have to sell him that in 2015 (when…

  17. Vince Carter on Dwight Howard: “The biggest crybaby I know”

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Dallas Mavericks

    Well, at least Dwight Howard didn’t toss a ball at Vince Carter… that we know of. Everyone has been piling on Dwight Howard this season — Shaq on TNT, Mark Cuban, Lakers fans, pretty much everyone outside Houston… And now you can add Vince Carter to the list. That is former teammate and fellow off-season…

  18. Rumor: If Woodson is in trouble, look for push to make Calipari next Knicks coach

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Texas-Arlington v Kentucky

    “I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part!” —Otter, Animal House He may well have been talking about James Dolan and the New York Knicks. However, this is what happens with a 3-8 start in New York — speculation. No doubt that if the Knicks…

  19. Could the Atlantic Division winner have a losing record?

    Nov 21, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    In a thrilling tussle for first place, the Raptors beat the 76ers on Wednesday to move atop the Atlantic Division. Losers of four straight, the 76ers had valiantly held control of the division until the juggernaut that is the  5-7 Raptors finally overtook them. So far this season, the NBA’s Atlantic puts NFC East jokes…

  20. Cavaliers’ fans boo No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett. Really Cleveland?

    Nov 21, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Anthony Bennett

    Cavaliers’ fans have a right to be frustrated. Owner Dan Gilbert pumped up this team and the fan base talking playoffs yet they are 4-8 to start the season with the second worst offense in the NBA (94.1 points per 100 possessions). They look like a lottery team. Again. They look like a team searching…
