  1. Report: Odom meets with Cuban, will return to Mavs soon

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:34 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Vince Carter

    Personal issues surrounding an illness with his father have kept Lamar Odom away from the Mavericks since before the All-Star break. But it’s more than just that — the entire fit with Dallas has been poor this season. Odom has not seemed happy and he is not one of those players who can compartmentalize his…

  2. Kobe thinks someone will score 100 points in a game again

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:03 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Friday is the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain scoring 100 points in a game. A feat that is shrouded in legend and myth, but in actuality was a bit bogus as teammates fouled the opposing team at the end of a blowout game to stop the clock, send them to the line and get the…

  3. Hawks pick up Dampier as insurance for rest of season

    Mar 1, 2012, 1:23 PM EDT

    Erick Dampier

    Eric Dampier isn’t brining a lot to the Atlanta Hawks the rest of this season. But the journeyman center provides some depth at a ravaged position in Atlanta. The Hawks have picked up Dampier for the rest of the season, Marc Spears of Yahoo tweets. Right now Zaza Pachulia is the starting center while everyone…

  4. Newest New York Ranger says Jeremy Lin can punch him

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:45 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v New York Knicks

    This is why you should be reading ProHockeyTalk… The New York Rangers have a new enforcer, John Scott. (For you hoops fans wondering what an enforcer does, think Charles Oakley if the NBA let him fight.) Before he was a Ranger he played for the Chicago Blackhawks. He and some Blackhawk teammates had taken in…

  5. Magic try to bring in players like Nash not ship Howard out

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Steve Nash Dwight Howard

    Orlando is not ready to trade Dwight Howard. They may not be by March 15, but they certainly are not right now. In fact, multiple reports have them working the phones trying to bring in more talent to put around Howard rather than ship him out. And they know to keep him they can’t just…

  6. Barack Obama knew about Jeremy Lin before you did

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    President Barack Obama

    It’s part of being President of the United States — you get information before everyone else. Of course, most of that is about things like the nuclear capabilities of Iran and other such actually important matters. But he gets basketball information, too. Like about Jeremy Lin, the Harvard-graduate Knicks sensation. He told Grantland’s Bill Simmons…

    Here is our daily 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). What is the most miserable sports city in the United States? Forbes says it’s Atlanta — thanks Hawks for doing your part to get them…

  8. Clippers ask long-time fan Clipper Darrell to stop using that name

    Mar 1, 2012, 11:04 AM EDT

    clipper darrell

    This is about brand image and money getting in the way of passion. It’s about misguided loyalty. It’s about the Clippers still being the Clippers. You know Darrell Baily as Clipper Darrell — the most passionate, long-time fan the Clippers have ever had. The guy with the blue-and-red suit (and car to match). He was…

  9. Nowitzki leaves game with back pain, questionable for Friday

    Mar 1, 2012, 10:23 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki played just 10 minutes on Wednesday — scoring one point on one shot attempt — before heading to the locker room with back pain that kept him out the rest of the night. While this does not appear to be anything serious or long-term, his status for the Mavericks game Wednesday is up…

  10. Add neck pain to list of Kobe Bryant injuries

    Mar 1, 2012, 9:44 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant neck

    Arthritic finger? Check. Torn ligament in wrist? Check? Broken nose? Check. Knees that require fancy German blood procedure? Check. Sore neck? Add that to the list. Kobe Bryant has neck pain that is requiring special treatment as well, he told the Orange County Register. “Feels like it’s just constant throbbing at the base of my…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls look every bit the contender

    Mar 1, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Ronnie Brewer, Joakim Noah

    What you missed while realizing that it’s time to turn off the autocorrect on your phone before someone gets hurt…. Bulls 96, Spurs 89: That is why the Chicago Bulls are contenders. They played a fantastic game behind Derrick Rose, who had 29 points and made all the big plays at the end, including a…

  12. Kobe says not to blame Dwyane Wade for injury

    Mar 1, 2012, 8:20 AM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It isn’t the type of play you normally see in an All-Star Game, where there is normally as much defense played as you see in a 100-yard dash. At the start of the second half the All-Star Game both Dwyane Wade and LeBron James tried to pick up the defensive intensity and get the East…

  13. Report: Celtics “aggressively” shopping Rajon Rondo

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:23 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo (9) shoots over Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    You know changes are coming to the Boston Celtics over the next few months — if not at the trade deadline certainly over the summer. The logical progression seemed to be the older “Big Three” — Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett — would be on their way out and Rajon Rondo would be…

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    I think Kevin Hart was in more places All-Star Weekend than Dwight Howard. He was MVP of the Celebrity Game. He was the hardest working man in show business promoting his new movie, “Think Like a Man,” coming to a theater near you soon. With that guy who played Turtle in Entourage. Here is a…

  15. NBA owners not going to make profit this season, league says

    Feb 29, 2012, 8:01 PM EDT

    David-Stern-all-star-2012

    If you believe the league’s numbers — and we’re still skeptical, to put it kindly — the NBA was a long way from turning a profit, they predicted a $300 million loss last year. A few months into the new collective bargaining agreement that is far more favorable to the owners (no matter what Mark…

  16. Video: Kobe Bryant’s turn as 70′s Italian exploitation film star

    FirefoxScreenSnapz019

    Kobe Bryant always seemed like a cool enough cat to save the world. In this promo from Nike Basketball, we get to see what that might look like, 70′s exploitation style. From Nike Italy’s YouTube channel: “Enzo G. Castellari, cult Italian director of 70′s exploitation movies, introduces us to a hidden treasure taken from his…

  17. Trade offers for Nash may keep coming, but Suns’ plan to keep him hasn’t changed

    Feb 29, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Nothing has changed regarding the Phoenix Suns and Steve Nash. The team remains optimistic that it can convince their two-time MVP point guard to re-sign for another couple of years this summer, and Phoenix is not going to trade him before then unless Nash himself asks the team to do so. The organization’s seemingly firm…

  18. Jackson: Curry will not play in tonight’s game against the Hawks

    stephen curry

    According to Comcast Sports Net Bay Area’s Matt Steinmetz, Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry will miss tonight’s game against the Atlanta Hawks with a foot injury. Curry has averaged 16.5 points and 6.2 assists per game for the Warriors this year, but this will be his 11th missed game of the season because of…

  19. Broussard: Lakers turned down Michael Beasley offer

    Feb 29, 2012, 6:19 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    ESPN.com’s Chris Broussard has the report: The Minnesota Timberwolves offered to trade Michael Beasley to the Los Angeles Lakers for a first-round draft pick, but the Lakers turned them down, according to a league source. While Beasley, a talented and athletic small forward, would fill one of the Lakers’ greatest needs, the Lakers rejected the offer because they do not want…

  20. Charles Barkley thinks that 20% of NBA fans “should be shot.” Oh, Charles.

    Feb 29, 2012, 5:53 PM EDT

    Barkley, representing the 1992 United States Olympic "Dream Team"  in the Basketball Hall of Fame class of 2010, speaks in Springfield

    Charles Barkley has never been shy about speaking his mind, and TV/Radio personality has never prevented athletes from speaking their mind when they appear on one of his shows. So when the former NBA superstar and current TNT personality Charles Barkley went on Rome’s radio show earlier this morning, the chances of Barkley saying something…
