  1. Allen Iverson says he wants another shot in NBA but not through D-League

    Jan 29, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    The Texas Legends came calling but Allen Iverson has politely declined. The Answer took to twitter on Tuesday to say he will not be going the D-League route to return to the NBA. I thank Donnie and Dallas for the consideration and while I think the D-League is a great opportunity, it is not the…

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we analyze a potential deal between the Grizzlies and Raptors.  The recent reports linking Rudy Gay to Toronto aren’t all that surprising. It’s no big secret around the league that Raptors…

  3. Pau Gasol says he’ll accept bench role, will not ask for trade

    Jan 29, 2013, 9:12 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers power forward Pau Gasol listens to Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Chicago Bulls in Chicago

    It’s amazing what a balm winning a couple games can be over a team’s troubles. A week ago the Lakers were on a death spiral down to the seventh level of hell, then two wins where they go away from Mike D’Antoni’s offense and put Kobe Bryant at the point and suddenly Lakers fans are…

  4. Harrison Barnes throws it down, Aaron Gray gets in poster (VIDEO)

    Golden State Warriors Harrison Barnes goes up for a slam dunk past Toronto Raptors Aaron Gray during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    I don’t know if Harrison Barnes is getting invited to the NBA All-Star Weekend Dunk Contest, but he should be on the short list. This rookie can just flat out throw it down. This is far from the first time he’s ended up in his own big highlight. In this case, Aaron Gray decides to…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Crazy endings all across the league

    Jan 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    George Hill, Andre Miller, Andre Iguodala

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were getting your last Whopper Jr. — and I mean last Whopper Jr…. Nuggets 102, Pacers 101: It was the last game of a six-game road trip for the Pacers against an up-tempo Nuggets squad, and Indy was down 13 in…

  6. Report: Grizzlies talking to Raptors about possible Gay trade

    Jan 29, 2013, 1:00 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    It’s still not likely that the Memphis Grizzlies are going to trade Rudy Gay before the trade deadline, but don’t confuse that with totally DOA when other teams call. Multiple reports have said the Grizzlies phones are still ringing and they are still answering, even after a three-for-one bench player swap that eased their short-term…

  7. Three Stars of the Night: All Purpose Big Man Edition

    Jan 29, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    Marc Gasol, Darrell Arthur

    Defense. Rebounding. Points in the paint. Toughness. When you think of an NBA big man, these are likely the qualities you’re looking for. You want the guy who can get your team baskets close to the rim, stop the other team from doing the same, and do it all while giving your team a sense…

  8. Isaiah Thomas floater earns Kings win in Washington (VIDEO)

    Jan 28, 2013, 11:38 PM EDT

    Francisco Garcia, Isaiah Thomas, Tyreke Evans

    This was an unexpectedly fun game between two of the teams at the bottom of the standings, and with everything on the line it was the smallest guy on the court making the play. Tie game with 7.9 seconds left and the Kings inbound the ball to point guard Isaiah Thomas, who doesn’t use the…

  9. Stephen Curry rolls ankle, forced to leave game with “mild sprain” (VIDEO)

    Jan 28, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Golden State finally had some good news on the ankle front — Andrew Bogut returned from ankle surgery and looked pretty good with 12 points and 8 rebounds in 23 minutes — then this happened. Stephen Curry rolled his surgically-repaired right ankle during the third quarter. It was described as a mild sprain at first,…

  10. Andrew Bynum dunking, still plans return soon after All-Star break

    Jan 28, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    The dynamic around Andrew Bynum’s return to the 76ers has changed. Before it was something to watch as Philly brass thought about what kind of contract to offer him this summer. But with the injury to Rajon Rondo and the Sixers just 2.5 games back heading into Monday night, a playoff spot seems possible again.…

  11. Optimistic Ainge thinks Rondo could be back by next training camp

    Jan 28, 2013, 7:08 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Part of the theory on why the Celtics may want to start revamping their roster is that Rajon Rondo’s knee injury is not only going to put him out this season but it would make him miss part of the next one, too. Then, when he did come back, he wouldn’t quite be himself for…

  12. Real test for Lakers starts Wednesday — keep it up on the road

    Jan 28, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers players huddle after a breakdown in defense playing against the Oklahoma City Thunder during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    For two games, the Lakers have had success going away from Mike D’Antoni’s system. They have slowed the pace down (93 possessions against the Thunder, 90 against the Jazz, both below their 97 a game average). Kobe Bryant is running the point, drawing the double team and making the pass (and you can bet when…

  13. Don’t take my word for it: NPR money people say LeBron underpaid

    Jan 28, 2013, 5:05 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Like a lot of news programs, National Public Radio has taken to trying to explain the complexities of the economy to people like me with a new segment — Planet Money — that breaks it all down into layman’s terms. Their piece on Friday — how LeBron James is underpaid at $17.5 million, but that…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs back in the saddle again

    Jan 28, 2013, 4:29 PM EDT

    Tony Parker

    You know the consistently good Spurs are going to climb into the top spot a couple times during the season. The top four remain the same but we see some teams fall farther down the list while teams like the Wizards and Hornets climb. 1. Spurs (36-11, last week ranked No. 2). They have won…

  15. Heat visit the White House, LeBron calls Obama “coach” (VIDEO)

    Jan 28, 2013, 2:58 PM EDT

    Barack Obama, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade

    Monday was the annual NBA champions visit to the White House, with the standard speeches about coming together as a team and how that can inspire a nation — you know, the kind of things politicians from all political stripes say but rarely do — plus the presentation of a jersey. But the best part…

  16. Andrew Bogut may play for Warriors Monday night against Raptors

    Jan 28, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut has appeared in just four games for the Warriors this season, thanks to a broken left ankle that has been slow to recover after undergoing surgery last April. It has been Bogut’s decision all along to come back to the court when he feels ready, and that time may be upon us as…

  17. Jeff Van Gundy rips Dwight Howard during nationally televised game between Lakers and Thunder (VIDEO)

    Jan 28, 2013, 2:06 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers

    During Sunday’s nationally televised game between the Lakers and Thunder — one where Kobe Bryant racked up 14 assists in helping his team to a much-needed win — color commentator Jeff Van Gundy had some strong words for Dwight Howard. Howard has been up and down this season, and is clearly not all the way…

  18. Report: Rick Adelman returns to Timberwolves

    Jan 28, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Rick Adelman

    For the past three weeks, Rick Adelman has been away from the Minnesota Timberwolves, being with his ailing wife. Terry Porter has served as the interim coach. But he is back now, reports the Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because Adelman had yet to publicly address the…

  19. The time Charles Barkley jumped into a Phoenix weather report (VIDEO)

    Jan 28, 2013, 12:52 PM EDT

    Charles Barkley

    Charles Barkley did a very Charles Barkley thing Sunday — he jumped in a Phoenix area weather broadcast on the local ABC affiliate, and proceeds to try and lay out the weather for the Phoenix Open golf tournament (which apparently is going to be quite nice). Barkley doing weather is not… smooth. According to the…

    Jan 28, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    In a move that could force J.J. Redick to turn in his man card, he was seen at the Justin Bieber concert in Orlando last week. You better have a good explanation for that Redick, and the Orlando Sentinel asked him for one. Redick spent a precious Orlando Magic off-night at the Bieber concert, but…
