    Feb 11, 2013, 3:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Nobody is questioning that Dwight Howard is playing through shoulder pain. What Steve Nash on the court Sunday and countless others off the court have questioned is why that means he can’t move his feet quickly? Once again on Sunday against the Heat Howard was solid — 15 points and 9 rebounds in 41 minutes…

    Charles Barkley says a lot of things that make you think “there’s Barkley being Barkley” but I liked his answer today when asked by Dan Patrick if having Jay-Z as a minority owner of the Nets is really a draw to the team. No. The most important thing a free agent wants is money. Second,…

    Feb 11, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Kings Rockets

    In the end it may not change the outcome, but what the Sacramento Kings fans did Sunday night was show how much passion there still is for NBA basketball in that market.

    If he had not needed surgery, Anderson Varejao would be packing his bags for Houston and the All-Star Game right now. Nobody was noticing because nobody was watching Cavaliers games before Kyrie Irving got back, but Varejao was averaging better than 14 points and 14 rebounds a game with a PER of 21.8. But what…

    Feb 11, 2013, 12:03 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Joakim Noah earned his way into the All-Star Game — he’s scoring 11.2 points and grabbing 11.9 rebounds a game, but it’s really his role as high-energy anchor of the Bulls defense that got him a spot on the roster. But Noah has missed three games recently as he battles through plantar fasciitis in his…

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:11 AM EDT

    Iman Shumpert

    Phoenix is rebuilding and they want to acquire young assets in that process. Guys like, say, Iman Shumpert of the New York Knicks. Which is why a proposed trade that sent Shumpert to the Suns and Jared Dudley or some other pieces to the Knicks made sense for Phoenix. Just not as much for New…

    Feb 11, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Feb 11, 2013, 1:15 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Atlanta Hawks

    Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov wants a contender. Badly. And he has to look at his Nets then look at the Heat and realize his side is not better than them. Or the Knicks. Or Pacers. Or Bulls (with Derrick Rose back). And so he has a team trying to swing a big deal for maybe…

    Feb 10, 2013, 9:39 PM EDT
