    What Portland did at the trade deadline was start to wipe the slate clean… or mostly clean. There are guys you want to keep on the roster — LeMarcus Aldridge, to be obvious — and guys that still need to be moved (Raymond Felton). But Portland now has a lot of picks and some cap…

    Glen Davis, Ivan Johnson, Vladimir Radmanovic

    Well, at least this time he kept his pants on. Orlando’s Glen Davis has been fined $35,000 by the league for making an obscene gesture. In the second quarter of the Magic’s game Monday in Toronto, Big Baby was caught on camera… um… let’s just say he was suggesting that the Raptors fan are number…

  4. Report: Kobe will push to bring Fisher, Odom back to Lakers

    Mar 28, 2012, 3:13 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    There is a reason players — even elite players — should not get to play general manager, too. With that thought in mind we bring you this news on the eve of Derek Fisher making his return to Los Angeles as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder — Kobe Bryant wants him back. And…

  5. Mark Cuban: Still a fan of putting ads on NBA Jerseys

    WNBA Sue Bird Ad jersey

    I hate to tell you this, but it’s going to happen someday — there will be corporate advertising on NBA jerseys. How soon may be decided when the Board of Governors (read: the owners) meet next month to discuss league business. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has been pushing for the idea for a while…

  6. Winderman: 2012 Mavericks are what Heat should have been in 2007

    Mar 28, 2012, 12:55 PM EDT

    Mavericks forward Marion, guard Kidd, guard Terry and forward Nowitzki stand with the Larry O'Brien Championship trophy before their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Heat-Mavericks wasn’t what it was cracked up to be on Christmas Day, and it won’t be on Thursday night either. At least when cast as an NBA Finals rematch. Oh, the Heat still start the same lineup they started in Game 6 in the 2011 NBA Finals, the night the Mavericks won the NBA championship…

  7. Wednesday And-1 links: Weird Jeremy Lin dances sweeping the globe

    Mar 28, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Honestly, I have no idea what to make of this odd Jeremy Lin…

  8. Nowitzki ready for Mavericks to look ahead, not back at title

    Mar 28, 2012, 11:36 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    It’s going to come up a lot the next couple days — Thursday night the Dallas Mavericks will take on the Miami Heat in Miami. That’s the place last June they won the NBA title. Dirk Nowitzki spent the summer celebrating that win, to the point he showed up to camp out of shape. The…

  9. Knicks announce Stoudemire out 2-4 weeks, Lin out Wednesday

    Mar 28, 2012, 10:33 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Amare Stoudemire will not have surgery on the bulging disc in his back and will be out two-to-four weeks, the team announced Wednesday morning. Other reports out of New York suggest leaning toward the long-end of that scale, which means he basically will be back for the playoffs. Until then it’s Carmelo Anthony’s job to…

  10. Cavaliers’ Daniel Gibson out for season with foot injury

    Mar 28, 2012, 10:01 AM EDT

    Daniel Gibson

    Daniel Gibson has been battling injury issues all season long. He’s played in just 35 games due to a host of neck and foot issues. And now one of those foot issues — a torn tendon — has the shooter down for the season. The team thought it was a sprained ankle suffered back on…

  11. Andrew Bynum’s turn to be benched by Mike Brown after taking three

    Mar 28, 2012, 9:27 AM EDT

    bynum-flagrant-beasley

    Everyone made a big deal out of Kobe Bryant being “benched” a few games ago during crunch time. That wasn’t really a benching. What happened with Andrew Bynum Tuesday night, that was a benching. And because Bynum acted like a three year old told he couldn’t have another lollipop, this issue could linger. It all…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Drama with the Lakers? Shocking.

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while thinking you don’t hate your job as much as this guy… Lakers 104, Warriors 101: What’s a Laker win without more drama? During the game the drama was the Lakers not pulling away against an undersized Golden State side, then the Warriors fighting back from a double digits deficit in the…

  13. David Stern takes a shot at the NCAA when asked about “one and done” players in college basketball

    Mar 28, 2012, 3:28 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Weekend

    David Stern has some ideas about how to solve the problem of so-called “one and done” players at the college level — you know, guys who go to school for just one year simply because the NBA’s age limit makes it impossible to declare for the draft straight out of high school. But they aren’t…

  14. David Stern says league will discuss adding goaltending calls to instant replay list

    Mar 28, 2012, 2:08 AM EDT

    photo-18

    NBA commissioner David Stern wants the NBA to do away with goaltending as we know it, and adopt the international rule which would allow players to touch the ball as soon as it hits the rim. The competition committee has fought him on this issue, and it’s not one that’s likely to change anytime soon.…

  15. Magic Johnson group to buy Los Angeles Dodgers for $2 billion

    ESPN Films "The Announcement" Los Angeles Premiere

    Around Los Angeles, a lot of people were rooting for the Magic Johnson group to win the bidding war for the Dodgers. Well, mostly what Dodger fans wanted was Frank McCourt out of the picture and replaced by anyone not named Jamie McCourt. But if they got to choose a replacement, Magic was at the…

  16. Raptors’ Jerryd Bayless out for rest of season with torn oblique

    Mar 28, 2012, 1:06 AM EDT

    BAYLESS_JERRYD

    Jerryd Bayless had been playing pretty well for Toronto a couple of weeks ago — he dropped 29 on the Bobcats. And to prove he could score against an actual NBA defense he also dropped 28 on the Memphis Grizzlies. He’d been looking good. But now he is out for the season with a torn…

  17. The time Michael Beasley had to wear Kevin Love’s shoe

    Mar 27, 2012, 10:12 PM EDT

    Luke Ridnour, Kevin Love, Michael Beasley

    Sunday Michael Beasley was questionable in a game against the Nuggets due to a sprained big toe, but he went out and played anyway and scored 11 points in the game. You’ve probably been wondering, “How did he do that?” Okay, no you didn’t. Neither did I. Nobody did. But it turns out the story…

    Mar 27, 2012, 8:36 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 8:36 pm: Carmelo Anthony was making the media rounds on Tuesday (doing a number of national radio and local television and radio interviews) and mostly said nothing of interest, except telling a New York radio show that he will play Wednesday against the Magic. Here is a tweet from Howard Beck of the New…

    You can add this to the list of things that may be causing the Heat to be in a bit of a funk. LeBron James may have injured — maybe dislocated — the ring finger on his left (non-shooting) hand, according to Chris Broussard at ESPN. The severity of the injury is not known at…
