  1. Report: Clippers interested in Ray Allen

    Mar 4, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Clippers have struggled without Chauncey Billups, missing their legitimate shooter at 2-guard and his ability to help manage the offense alongside CP3. (Who would have thought he’d need help?) So the Clippers have started showing up in trade rumors, and the latest one is both intriguing and bizarre.…

  2. Mavs support Odom’s return as he has a good game in win over Utah

    Mar 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Lamar Odom drives on Phoenix Suns Grant Hill near guard Steve Nash during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    After Dirk Nowitzki was done dropping 40, after the Jazz went quietly into the night, after Lamar Odom had returned just hours before to the team instead of beginning an assignment with the D-League, it was a time for reconciliation. And the Mavericks, as teams with good, quality guys do, were ready to stick up…

  3. Video: J-Smoove throws it down on Serge Ibaka

    Mar 4, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith is an underrated in game dunker — he doesn’t get as many chances as he should in the Hawks offense, but the man can be fierce. Just ask Serge Ibaka. J-Smove got up and threw it down on Ibaka during the Hawks upset win over the Thunder Saturday. It was a big dunk…

  4. Kobe says he has no active rivals left in NBA

    Mar 3, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Donte Greene

    Dwyane Wade and LeBron James will be fired up when the Heat take on the Lakers Sunday afternoon in a nationally televised game. Not because the Lakers are particularly threatening this season, but because of Kobe Bryant. He is the measuring stick for all the great players in the NBA right now — five-time champion,…

  5. Report: Stern done after 2014

    David-Stern-all-star-2012

    The New York Daily News reports that the current plan is for Stern to inform the owners that he will step down after two more seasons, presumably after the 2013-14 season. From the Daily News: Insiders say that David Stern is planning to tell NBA owners at their April Board of Governors meeting that he’s good…

  6. Baron Davis could eventually replace Jeremy Lin as Knicks starting point guard

    Mar 3, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    As the media were allowed into Knicks practice on Friday, they saw something unexpected: Jeremy Lin and Baron Davis playing on the floor together, on the same team, with the rest of the starting unit during a scrimmage. It’s certainly an interesting idea, and one that would be even more interesting to see in a…

  7. The Celtics are really committed to telling you everything’s fine

    Mar 3, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The Celtics have been in trade rumors, progressively more and more as the weeks have gone on and finally on Friday, they snapped a little bit and went on a media binge to try and quell talks about Rarjon Rondo. Danny Ainge essentially went on every outlet in the Boston area and blasted the idea.…

  8. Nene totally might have possibly gone to Houston if a trade that didn’t happen had happened. This is a thing, for some reason.

    Mar 3, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Nene nuggets

    I’m begging you to let this story die. No one’s happy with how the first Chris Paul trade fell apart. The NBA shouldn’t have owned the team, so that it wouldn’t have been in a position to turn down the trade as the owner (not the league; to say otherwise is basically twisting reality and…

  9. The Hawks and Celtics held ‘exploratory’ trade talks, Woj says. Don’t get excited.

    Mar 3, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    Yahoo’s Woj says that the Celtics and Hawks held “exploratory” trade talks about a swap but there’s nothing doing.This comes after a New York Daily News report indicated the two had held trade talks centered around Josh Smith for some package of the Boston Big 3. Woj says the Hawks don’t want to move Smith…

  10. Lamar Odom to skip D-League game, play for Mavs Saturday

    Mar 3, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Evan Turner, Lavoy Allen

    That whole “Lamar Odom is going to play a game in the D-League to get his legs back before returning to the Mavericks” thing? Forget about it. He is coming straight to the Mavericks and will play Saturday when Dallas tries to stop its four-game losing streak when they take on the Jazz (who just…

  11. Blake Griffin says teams are allowed to be more physical with him than with others

    Mar 3, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Blake Griffin had a tough outing against the Suns on Friday, and had to earn every single one of his 17 points and seven rebounds. Those numbers had little impact on the game, however, and his 4-of-14 shooting through three quarters were a true indication of just how much of a struggle it was for…

  12. Why you should and should not care about LeBron’s whole “passing in the clutch” thing

    Mar 3, 2012, 9:10 AM EDT

    jamesheat

    To review, in last night’s game, the Miami Heat came from behind to lead the Utah Jazz, only to watch Al Jefferson take the lead with a hook shot. At that point, the Heat had time for one final possession. Remember when LeBron passed up the final shot and everyone gave him huge grief about…

  13. Suns shut down Blake Griffin, win ugly over the Clippers

    Mar 3, 2012, 3:39 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Channing Frye, Grant Hill

    As the starting lineups took the floor Friday night in Phoenix for a nationally televised contest between the Clippers and the Suns, the matchup that looked to be far and away the most favorable for L.A. was Channing Frye against Blake Griffin. Griffin, after all, leads the league in dunks, and is so athletically gifted…

  14. Video: With game on line LeBron passes. Again. Heat lose

    Mar 3, 2012, 2:05 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks off the court after the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Utah

    It was like reliving the All-Star Game. LeBron James was at the heart of a comeback from 18-points down for the Heat — he had 19 points in the second half and controlled a lot of the key plays. He had another great game. But with the Heat down one with 4.5 seconds left LeBron…

  15. Report: Kings trying hard to trade J.J. Hickson

    Mar 2, 2012, 10:43 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    When the Kings and Cavaliers made a trade that sent the athletic J.J. Hickson to Sacramento (and Omri Casspi to Cleveland), it seemed a great fit. The athletic wing seemed a guy who could fit in well with Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins. Hasn’t worked out that way at all. Hickson’s game has taken a…

  16. Doc Rivers none too thrilled with Celtics trade rumors

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:48 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    You’ve heard all the rumors — the Celtics are going to blow up the roster, that they aggressively shopping Rajon Rondo, that the real interest is in Paul Pierce and Ray Allen — and probably a few more. The latest hot rumor is Kevin Garnett to Atlanta for Josh Smith. Celtics coach Doc Rivers has…

  17. Kyrie Irving out for Cavaliers Friday night

    Mar 2, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    Cavaliers Irving reacts to making a three point basket in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    Consider this the “Ramon Sessions trade showcase” game now. Kyrie Irving is out for the Cavaliers Friday Night game hosting the Bulls Friday night. Officially the Cavaliers are only saying he is ill, according to the Plain Dealer’s Cavs twitter account. This moves Sessions into the starting lineup. He already has been drawing a lot…

  18. Mavericks coach Carlisle says “patience has worn thin” with Lamar Odom

    Mar 2, 2012, 6:58 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Vince Carter

    Lamar Odom was given away for virtually nothing by the Lakers to the defending champion Mavericks before the season even began, after Odom expressed a desire to be dealt once his name surfaced in legitimate trade rumors. With Odom being the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, this seemed like an absolute steal for Dallas…

  19. The Knicks are winning, but now they can’t sleep

    Mar 2, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v New York Knicks

    From Newsday’s Al Iannazzone: GREENBURGH, N.Y. — The Knicks don’t just play in the city that never sleeps, they have become the team that has trouble sleeping. All the excitement that Jeremy Lin has generated around New York and inside Madison Square Garden has given some Knicks players a rush of adrenaline that has stayed with them long after…

  20. Stein: Lakers may be interested in Kirk Hinrich. Laker fans, you may now be depressed.

    Mar 2, 2012, 5:40 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein: Keep an eye on Atlanta Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich. If the Lakers can’t make a splashy move for the elite point guard they crave — a long shot at best at this point — and can’t swing a deal for top fallback choice Ramon Sessions, taking Hinrich and his $8.1 million salary…
