  1. Marcus Camby to make season debut for Knicks

    Nov 8, 2012, 10:39 PM EST

    Knicks Media Day Basketball

    The Knicks haven’t shown any signs of a team struggling to deal with injuries. On the way to a 3-0 start that has New York as the league’s lone remaining undefeated team, the Knicks have allowed an NBA-best 85.3 points per game, and have shown similar success on the defensive end even when adjusting for…

  2. Nets to be without Gerald Wallace for Friday vs. Magic

    Nov 8, 2012, 9:45 PM EST

    Gerald Wallace

    The Nets really missed Gerald Wallace on Wednesday night — if you’re going to be without your best wing defender for a night the Heat are not the team you want to face. The Nets will again be without Wallace on Friday night due to the same sprained ankle, the team announced Friday. The good…

  3. Rajon Rondo doesn’t like anyone, has no time for friends

    Nov 8, 2012, 9:37 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo is in the top tier of the league’s most competitive players, so the comments he made that we’re about to bring you shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Rondo is traditionally very quiet with the media, so when he talks about things like his competitive drive or how he values his teammates…

  4. Thomas Robinson says all the right things after receiving two-game suspension

    Nov 8, 2012, 8:26 PM EST

    Thomas Robinson

    The elbow from Kings’ rookie Thomas Robinson on Wednesday — you remember, the one that connected with the throat of Jonas Jerebko and earned Robinson a well-deserved two-game suspension — was brutal and unnecessary, and has no place at all in a basketball game played at the professional level. Thankfully, after receiving his punishment for…

  5. Kobe reacts after watching clip of his ‘death stare’ at Mike Brown (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2012, 7:41 PM EST

    Mike Brown, Kobe Bryant

    After the Lakers practiced in El Segundo on Thursday, Kobe Bryant was asked about his supposed “death stare” at head coach Mike Brown that came as L.A. was getting rolled in Utah at the hands of the Jazz for the team’s fourth loss in five tries to open the season. The glare is above, and…

  6. Wade, LeBron say Brooklyn now more attractive to free agents

    Nov 8, 2012, 6:54 PM EST

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Now that the Nets are in Brooklyn, do they stand a chance of landing a superstar free agent? LeBron James and Dwyane Wade said yes. Could they land LeBron or Wade in 2014 when the Heat stars can opt out of their deals? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Wade and LeBron both told…

  7. Thunder unveil new alternate uniforms

    Nov 8, 2012, 6:26 PM EST

    okc alt uniforms

    The Thunder have arguably one of the worst logos in the league, especially when contrasting it with how exciting the product is on the court. The colors aren’t bad, but the logo the team went with seems like it was chosen from a contest between third-graders to submit their best designs. There’s a new uniform…

  8. Kings’ Robinson suspended two games for elbow to neck of Pistons’ Jerebko

    Nov 8, 2012, 5:42 PM EST

    Kim English, Jonas Jerebko

    We told you Wednesday night when it happened a suspension was very possible for Kings rookie Thomas Robinson, and the league has come down pretty hard on the rookie. Robinson has been suspended two games (without pay) for throwing an elbow to the neck of Jonas Jerebko of the Detroit Pistons, the league announced Thursday. Robinson was…

  9. Warriors to shut down Andrew Bogut for at least 7-10 days

    Nov 8, 2012, 4:10 PM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut desperately wanted to get on the court and help his Golden State Warriors from the moment the season tipped off… and he there on the court opening night in the starting lineup. Helping? That’s up for debate. (I mean, he’s still better than Andris Biedrins.) But he clearly was not moving well following…

  10. Teams are adjusting, now James Harden must adjust, too

    Nov 8, 2012, 3:49 PM EST

    James Harden, Kenneth Faried

    For a couple games, nobody knew what to expect of James Harden in a Houston Rockets uniform. We knew he could play — Sixth Man of the Year, Olympic gold medalist — but the setting with him as the man and not a playmaking third option was going to be very different. The result was…

  11. Stay classy L.A.: Lakers fan pepper sprays Jazz fan after game

    Nov 8, 2012, 3:08 PM EST

    pepper-spray

    Wherever the Lakers travel around the nation (and around the globe), there are always some Lakers fans in the crowd. Even in rivalry cities like Boston. Or Utah. And those fans are as frustrated with the Lakers 1-4 start as the people in Los Angeles. And some handle their anger just about as well —…

  12. Hornets’ Anthony Davis says he feels better, could play Friday

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:02 PM EST

    Anthony Davis

    This is encouraging, but could ultimately be meaningless. The Hornets No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis has missed the last two games for the Hornets with a concussion he got when teammate Austin Rivers inadvertently elbowed him in the head. But Davis could be back Friday, reports Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune. Anthony Davis says…

  13. Zeller trying to pass concussion tests; Varejao’s knee “not serious”

    Nov 8, 2012, 12:37 PM EST

    Tyler Zeller Cavaliers

    Cleveland did not look like same team in a loss to Golden State Wednesday as they did beating the Clippers Monday. Because they weren’t. No Anderson Varejao and his 15 points and 16 rebounds a game so far this season, he tweaked his knee against the Clippers. No backup big man Tyler Zeller and his…

  14. Mehmet Okur announces his retirement from basketball

    Nov 8, 2012, 11:48 AM EST

    Mehmet Okur

    Mehmet Okur, the Turkish big man with a soft outside shot but who also could bang inside, has announced his retirement after 10 seasons in the NBA (the last couple marred by injuries). Sportando had the story from NTV Spor in Turkey. Mehmet Okur announced his retire from basketball at 33….Okur decided to retire because…

  15. Kobe Bryant is frustrated, Dwight Howard wants him to chill

    Nov 8, 2012, 11:04 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant was angry. Frustrated and pissed off that the Lakers fell to 1-4 in Utah, he was showing everyone. He argued with referee Ed Malloy, he gave Mike Brown a death stare, he stormed off the court after the game, and when asked about it by reporters Kobe basically said he didn’t want to…

  16. Video: Clippers Crawford nutmegs Spurs De Colo

    Nov 8, 2012, 10:14 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    DeAndre Jordan loves this play. LOVES IT. Nutmeg is an old-school term, believe it or not. Seriously. The stuffy Oxford English Dictionary says the term (when not talking about the food) is first seem “in the 1870s which in Victorian slang came to mean ‘to be tricked or deceived, especially in a manner which makes…

  17. Video: Denver’s Kenneth Faried with the vicious alley-oop finish

    Nov 8, 2012, 8:55 AM EST

    Kenneth Faried

    It was a monster night for Kenneth Faried — 16 points and 16 rebounds as the Nuggets picked up a quality win. We at PBT already broke that all down for you. But we had to show you this monster finish — that is a tough pass to make and a crazy finish by Faried.…

  18. Lakers owner Jim Buss gives Mike Brown vote of confidence

    Nov 8, 2012, 8:08 AM EST

    Mike Brown

    After what is arguably the Lakers ugliest loss of the season in Utah — although it’s really hard to pick just one, they have all been so ugly — the heat from fans and the media is back on coach Mike Brown and his Princeton offense. But not from Lakers ownership. Jim Buss preached patience…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs lose and we have a DeAndre Jordan sighting

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while you were watching the first episode of the new season of Top Chef and thinking you could make an omelet…. Jazz 95, Lakers 86: Well, that was about as ugly as the Lakers have looked this season. Utah’s front line…

  20. Three Stars of the Night: Bombs Away

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:38 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Charlotte Bobcats

    Chicks dig the long ball, right? Well, for tonight’s Three Stars we’ve got some sharp shooting goodness from behind the arc, a man who’s getting awful comfortable in this space, and an off the bench performance that sunk the struggling Lakers. Third Star: Randy Foye (17 points, 5-9 three pointers) It wasn’t so much the…
