  1. How Kevin Durant almost played for North Carolina

    Mar 26, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    kevin durant texas

    Kevin Durant in Carolina blue rather than Texas burnt orange? I have trouble picturing it, but it almost happened, apparently. The New York Post’s Peter Vecsey had a story Sunday primarily about how Kevin Love and Kevin Durant are good friends going way back to seventh grade. How Durant has been over to Love’s family…

  2. Mickael Pietrus out indefinately with concussion after fall

    Mar 26, 2012, 10:20 AM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    Friday night it looked scary for Mickael Pietrus — after an awkward fall in Philadelphia where his neck snapped a little (but his head never hit the floor) he had to be taken off the court on a stretcher. He was released from the hospital but did not travel with the team back to Boston.…

  3. Yes, Kobe Bryant sat a key stretch of fourth quarter. So?

    Mar 26, 2012, 9:35 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    With 5:45 left in Sunday night’s game and the Lakers down 14 points, coach Mike Brown sat Kobe Bryant Sunday night. He sat for the next 3:53 of a game where the Lakers were within striking distance of the Grizzlies (but never closed the gap and lost 102-93. This has caused consternation among Lakers fans…

  4. Video: Dwyane Wade drains three-quarter court shot at buzzer

    Mar 26, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    It was about the only thing the Heat seemed to do right in the second half. To beat the buzzer at the end of the third quarter Sunday night, Dwyane Wade launched a three-quarter court shot. And drained it. The Thunder still ran away with the game, but the shot is worth seeing so we’re…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Are the Hawks and Jazz still playing?

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:37 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams

    What you missed while welcoming Don Draper back into your life… Thunder 103, Heat 87: Kevin Durant outdueled LeBron James (making a nice MVP case), but the bigger concern for Miami should be that Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka combined to drop 35 on them. Matt Moore has a lot more as this was our…

  6. Thunder roll on Miami as Heat roll over

    Mar 26, 2012, 1:36 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Miami Heat 103-87 Sunday night behind Kevin Durant‘s 29 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. It was an MVP performance by Durant and a statement game for the Thunder. For the Heat, it was yet another in a long series of headache-inducing performances in which the Heat faced the…

  7. Spurs list Tim Duncan as “DND – OLD”

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:19 PM EDT

    spursboxdndold2

    The Spurs are the funniest team in the league you don’t know is funny. From their HEB commercials to Popovich clowning Shaq with a Hack-A-Shaq two seconds into the game, they come off as a boring club, but really, they’re pretty entertaining. On the official roster that each team submits before the game, the Spurs…

  8. 5 Things to Watch: Heat-Thunder, a potential Finals preview worth playing

    Mar 25, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

      Best in the East vs. best in the West. Nope, that’s not right. The two clearly best teams in the league. Well, no, not really with how open the West is. OK, how about just: A more-probable-than-on-average chance that these two teams will meet in the Finals. There. Sufficiently hedged. The Miami Heat and…

  9. Cavs might bring back Jamison next season

    Mar 25, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    When the Cavaliers traded for Antawn Jamison, it was supposed to be the move that brought them a championship, the final piece of the puzzle for LeBron James to bring a title to Cleveland. Instead, Jamison never showed the ability he had when he was younger, couldn’t adjust to the system fast enough, and had…

  10. Brook Lopez out a while longer as CT scan reveals another “small crack”

    Mar 25, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    On the list of guys who you should feel bad for regarding this season, Brook Lopez has to be one of the bigger candidates. Imagine if your job kept working with you to get you back at work from an injury, but you knew the only reason they were is that they want to use…

  11. Arron Afflalo suspended for elbow to head of Gordon Hayward

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:35 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo

    If you saw the play — or even watched the video above — you knew this was coming. Denver’s Arron Afflalo has been suspended one game for throwing an elbow to the head of Utah’s Gordon Hayward during the third quarter of the Jazz’s win Friday night. Afflalo was ejected from that game and will…

  12. LeBron James and a story of humanity you should probably read

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    There are going to be comments below and tweets about this story that are going to make you question whether we shouldn’t just abandon society and live as separate lives as we can, because we’re truly vile. As an incredibly funny man once said, “We’re a virus with shoes.” But the story needs to be…

  13. Video: J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert go double-alley-oop on Detroit

    Mar 25, 2012, 9:35 AM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the first half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The Knicks are feeling it right now. Undefeated since giving Mike D’Antoni the boot and riding the scapegoat momentum express, they won again Saturday over Detroit in a laugher. How much of a laugher was it? Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith pulled off something which is the kind of thing you can only shake your…

  14. Video: Luol Deng with the putback for the win

    Mar 25, 2012, 12:47 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    The Bulls won a game over Toronto 102-101 that they probably should have lost by all accounts, not only for the fact that the Raptors outplayed them for most of the game and had about 700 things go against them down the stretch, but mostly because the Bulls were without two of their best players…

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett reacts during their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers as the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan looks on in Los Angeles

    It’s been a really interesting season in the legacy of Kevin Garnett. Boston folks can’t stop talking about how much production he’s giving teams, how well he’s playing, how he’s been the best player on the team. The rest of us keep noticing that while his production is there and he’s still as crafty a…

  16. Bulls owner was willing to go into luxury tax to get Pau Gasol… generous bajillionaire he is

    Mar 24, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    So that Pau-Gasol-to-Chicago rumor before the dealing fell apart pretty quick because, to be honest, the idea of anyone saying “Heck yeah, we want Carlos Boozer!” right now is like the joke in a trailer for one of those teen romcoms. You know it’s coming and though it is technically humorous, it’s not actually funny.…

  17. It’s OK if there’s no mania behind Jimmer

    Mar 24, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette , Kurt Thomas, Nolan Smith

    “The first time he didn’t play [on Feb. 2 against Portland], people were calling the paper and pitching their theories,” said Jason Jones, the Kings’ beat writer for The Sacramento Bee. “People don’t want to believe that he might not be ready to play. They want to believe Keith has it in for him.” The…

  18. Video: Kevin Durant, Kevin Love put on show in OKC

    Mar 24, 2012, 12:44 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    In case you missed one of the most entertaining games of the year last night, we bring you some highlights from the Minnesota Timberwolves at Oklahoma City Thunder. Like above, when at the end of regulation Kevin Durant and Kevin Love traded threes. Below, watch Durant send the game into double overtime, where the Thunder…

  19. Mickael Pietrus injured after hard fall, released from hospital

    Mar 24, 2012, 12:15 PM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    UPDATE March 24, 12:15 pm: This has to be taken as good news — Pietrus stayed behind the team and spent the night in Philadelphia, but not in the hospital. He now has been cleared to return to Boston, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Which is very good news. He may miss a game…

  20. Chris Kaman sticks with Hornets, which is fine. For now.

    Mar 24, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Chris Kaman, Nene

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein:   Players waived by 11:59 PM ET tonight eligible for playoffs w/another team, but ESPN sources say NOH & Chris Kaman still NOT talking buyout — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) March 23, 2012 So… real quick. Taking on the rest of the year for Kaman isn’t bad. He still makes plays (he blocked…
