    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    In our game recaps you could see the video of Rudy Gay‘s windmill dunk during the Grizzlies loss to Portland Tuesday night. But really, you need to see the play before the play to appreciate it. So enjoy Gay getting some dunking practice. Via The Basketball Jones.

  2. Kings Arena Update: Critical Sac City Council meeting postponed at last minute

    Jan 25, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    ProposedKingsArena

    It’s been a while since we checked into the Sacramento Kings’ arena situation, which almost faced another crucial moment on Tuesday when the Sac City Council meeting was set to turn into a shootout at the Cowbell Corral. On one side, arena opponent and council member Sandy Sheedy was ready to force debate on whether…

  3. Report: Stern clears way for Hornets to offer Eric Gordon four-year deal

    Jan 25, 2012, 8:08 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Eric Gordon went with a nice leveraged move Tuesday — he went public with the information he had been told that any potential extension to his rookie deal was in the lap of David Stern. (Remember that the league owns the Hornets right now, so Stern gets the final say on these kind of things.)…

  4. Suns won’t offer contract extension to Robin Lopez

    Jan 25, 2012, 3:16 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns, Game 4

    Wednesday’s Jan. 25 deadline for the Suns to offer a contract extension to center Robin Lopez will come and go without any action by the team, according to a report from Fox Sports Arizona: “We reached out to (Lopez’s agent) Arn Tellem and let him know that we were willing to engage in discussions to…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: ‘Melo is off but Knicks aren’t

    Jan 25, 2012, 3:16 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Tyrus Thomas

    What you missed while calling 911 asking to fight a cop…. Raptors 99, Suns 96: The biggest upset of the night was our game of the night. Knicks 111, Bobcats 78: Carmelo Anthony wondered if he shot too much after the Knicks loss to the Nuggets, then he sat down with Amar’e Stoudemire and talked…

  6. Andrea Bargnani returns, scores season high 36 points to lead Raptors past Suns

    Jan 25, 2012, 2:44 AM EDT

    Andrea+Bargnani

    The Toronto Raptors came into Tuesday’s game against the Suns having lost eight straight, the last six of which came with their best player, Andrea Bargnani, sidelined due to injury. The Suns were playing in Phoenix after a five-game, eight-day East coast road trip that concluded just the night before with a loss in Dallas.…

  7. Kevin Love says no deal yet, but reports swirling

    Jan 24, 2012, 10:42 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    I’m going to go with what Kevin Love says about the current state of his extension. A report came from Pioneer Press Tuesday night that Love and the Timberwolves had agreed to a four-year, $62 million extension to his rookie deal. That is reportedly about what the Timberwolves had been offering, but short of the…

  8. Video: Painting Yao Ming portrait using basketball as brush

    Jan 24, 2012, 8:42 PM EDT

    Yao Ming

    I find this fascinating — a woman paints a portrait of Yao Ming, in Rockets red (or China red, if you prefer), using a basketball as a brush. It’s technically impressive, and a good portrait. All sorts of questions here. Why? Is it better to use a synthetic ball because the paint adheres better than…

  9. Details emerge of league’s new revenue sharing plan

    Jan 24, 2012, 7:22 PM EDT

    AP Money Found

    Revenue sharing was a big part of this summer’s Collective Bargaining Agreement talks, but the most secretive part. The owners wanted it to be something separate from the CBA itself, the players wanted it included, but what was going to be included was vague. Even when the deal was finalized and the lockout lifted, the…

  10. Quote of the Day: Dwight Howard zings Big Baby

    Jan 24, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Asked what Glen Davis brings to the Magic… “Food. Drinks. By the time he brings the food, there’s no food left. He usually eats it before he brings it to the table.” —Dwight Howard, talking about the former Celtic and his penchant for enjoying a good meal. A large good meal. From WEEI, via The…

  11. Cuban calls NBA players in Olympics “epitome of stupidity”

    Jan 24, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    In the ongoing “club vs. country” debate that rages through soccer, basketball and other sports, Mark Cuban has long been clearly on the side of the clubs. Which makes sense because he owns one. He pays a lot of money, hypothetically, to a tall German forward who went and played for his national team this…

  12. Flip Saunders talks “disappointing” end to Wizards tenure

    Jan 24, 2012, 4:23 PM EDT

    File photo of Washington Wizards coach Saunders during an NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Flip Saunders was frustrated. Diplomatic, usually, but frustrated. Considered a players coach most of his career (and more passive, not a yeller), he was brought into Washington to coach a veteran team with Caron Butler, Gilbert Areas — a team that had made the playoffs the year before. Then in one instance of stupidity, the…

  13. Luol Deng out “for a while” with torn wrist ligament

    Jan 24, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    The Chicago Bulls have no one player who brings everything that Luol Deng does to the table, and now they are going to be without their glue guy “for a while.” Deng spoke to the media on Tuesday and confirmed he has a torn ligament in his wrist, the same wrist injury now on his…

  14. NBA quarter pole awards: Yes, LeBron is the MVP

    Jan 24, 2012, 2:37 PM EDT

    Miami Heats' LeBron James plays against the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    We are a quarter of the way into the NBA season, which is far too early to start talking about end of the season awards, playoffs or much of anything else. I’m going to anyway. Here are the awards in a few categories as we reach the quarter pole. We’ve got a long back stretch…

  15. Video: Magic’s Jason Richardson sneaks off bench into play

    Jan 24, 2012, 1:41 PM EDT

    Jason Richardson, DeShawn Stevenson

    You were not the only one falling asleep during the Celtics blowout of the Magic on Monday night, so were the referees. At the start of this play there are only four Magic players in the game, and when veteran Jason Richardson recognizes it he gets up and just goes in and makes a defensive…

  16. Dwyane Wade out Tuesday, probably Wednesday, too

    Jan 24, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Miami Heat shooting guard Wade looks on from bench as Miami Heat plays against San Antonio Spurs during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    It’s official, Dwyane Wade will not suit up for the Miami Heat on Tuesday night when the Cleveland Cavaliers come to Florida for a game, tweets our man Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. Sorry fans of Deeeeeetroit bas-ket-ball, but you probably won’t see Wade in uniform in the Motor City Wednesday either. Smart move…

  17. Cuban admits he didn’t think Steve Nash would last this long

    Jan 24, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    It worked out for Dallas — they let Steve Nash walk, breaking up a pairing with Dirk Nowitzki that created some of the best offenses the NBA has ever seen, but they still got their title last year. Which is probably why he was comfortable enough to admit that he made a mistake — he…

  18. Washington Wizards fire coach Flip Saunders

    Jan 24, 2012, 11:50 AM EDT

    Flip Saunders

    Ownership told Flip Saunders to play kids in Washington and that they understood losses would follow. But when the Wizards started 2-15, without discipline, consistent effort or signs of improvement it was too much. The Wizards have fired Saunders, first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. CSNWashington.com confirmed the move. Current Wizards assistant and former…

  19. Tuesday And-1 links: Learn about the Van Gundy brothers

    Jan 24, 2012, 11:22 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 2

    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). Tonight (Tuesday), HBO’s Real Sports will profile the Van Gundy brothers — broadcaster (and former coach Jeff) and current Magic coach Stan. They talk about…

  20. Dirk Nowitzki could be out more than four games

    Jan 24, 2012, 11:02 AM EDT

    Mavericks forward Nowitzki sits on the bench during the first half an NBA basketball game against the Jazz in Salt Lake City

    The fine folks in Dallas continue to say it’s not his knee, it’s conditioning and strength issues that have Dirk Nowitzki out for a week. Not sure I buy it, but that’s what they are selling. But this little note from ESPNDallas.com turned our head — he could be out longer. Depending upon the progress…
