  1. Sports Illustrated names LeBron “Sportsman of the Year”

    Dec 3, 2012, 11:10 AM EDT

    LeBron Sportsman of the Year

    When we reflect back on him in 20 years, we may remember 2012 as the year LeBron James started to fulfill his potential. And he can now add Sports Illustrated “Sportsman of the Year” to his list of accolades from 2012 that include NBA champion, NBA regular season MVP, NBA finals MVP and leading Team…

  2. Hornets’ Anthony Davis to be out at least another week

    Dec 3, 2012, 10:50 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Houston Rockets

    Anthony Davis has already missed the Hornets’ last seven games and he’s going to be out a while longer, coach Monty Williams told the Times Picayune. “If I have to guess, I think he’s a week away from us thinking about him ramping up his conditioning; let alone playing,” Williams said. “So I just think…

  3. Knicks’ Felton has bone bruise on non-shooting hand

    Dec 3, 2012, 10:08 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New York Knicks

    Well, it could have been worse. It’s not broken. Raymond Felton suffered the hand injury in the fourth quarter against the Suns Sunday. The Knicks say an MRI revealed it to be a bone bruise, reports the New York Daily News. While it’s not his shooting hand, the severity of the injury would impact his…

  4. Steve Nash out at least another week, says he has “small improvement”

    Dec 3, 2012, 9:16 AM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash’s return is not going to be the cavalry charging over the hill to save the Lakers day that some fans (and maybe a certain head coach) seem to think it will be. Not when their defense gave up 31 points in the last 6 minutes of the game to lowly Orlando and Lakers…

  5. Dwight Howard still sounds like guy staying in LA

    Dec 3, 2012, 8:46 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard’s arrival in Los Angeles has stumbled out of the gate on the court — missed training camp due to back surgery recover, missed free throws, missed opportunities. But he still sounds like a happy guy. One who isn’t going anywhere. Dwight Howard will be a free agent this summer but pretty much everyone…

  6. Is Miami finding its defensive footing? If so, watch out.

    Dec 3, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Miami has been getting it done with offense. It has the best record in the Eastern Conference, it has won six in a row and it’s mostly been because LeBron James is LeBron James and Chris Bosh is having a very efficient season. But the last couple games, the Heat’s defense has started to come together. They…

  7. Video: Metta World Peace drives by half the Magic for dunk

    Dec 3, 2012, 2:19 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Believe it or not Lakers fans, there were highlights out of the game Sunday night. Well, not from the fourth quarter. And not of Dwight Howard at the free throw line. But they did exist. Like this one — Metta World Peace blowing by half the Magic players for a dunk in the first quarter…

  8. Magic get ultimate revenge on Dwight Howard, beating the Lakers and humiliating him in the process

    Dec 3, 2012, 12:47 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Glen Davis, J.J. Redick

    There really is nothing that could happen in one game for the Orlando Magic that could possibly make up for what Dwight Howard put them through a season ago, considering the way he forced his way out of town and left the franchise in a full-blown rebuilding situation. But for a single night, the Magic…

  9. Sebastian Telfair flops after hitting Pablo Prigioni in the face (VIDEO)

    Sebastian Telfair, Brandon Rush

    The league has begun to crack down on flopping this season. Players who are caught in the act will first receive a warning, before then receiving fines escalating in value for each subsequent violation. Sebastian Telfair may find himself on the league’s radar, after this play that occurred during the Knicks’ win over the Suns…

  10. MRI reveals Rip Hamilton suffered torn plantar fascia, which is actually good news

    Dec 2, 2012, 8:43 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    In the third quarter of the Bulls’ win over the Sixers on Saturday, Rip Hamilton was forced to leave the game with a foot injury, the severity of which was unknown at the time. Hamilton returned in the game’s closing seconds to ice it for his team at the free throw line, but afterward, his comments…

  11. Tim Duncan can still dunk, does so over Marc Gasol (VIDEO)

    Dec 2, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan spreads his arms during a stop in play during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    Tim Duncan has been nicknamed the “Big Fundamental” for a reason, one that is showcased nicely in this highlight from the Spurs’ overtime win over the Grizzlies on Saturday. The spin move and the up and under on the way to the dunk were almost more impressive than the slam itself. Duncan isn’t a leaper…

  12. Trade talk for Anderson Varejao expected to heat up

    Dec 2, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    The Cavaliers aren’t exactly having a great season, but if nothing else they play hard just about every time out under head coach Byron Scott. Once Kyrie Irving returns from injury things should improve a bit, but even in his absence, Anderson Varejao is making an impact in every one of his court appearances. Varejao…

  13. Celtics ‘wary’ of bringing in Kenyon Martin to fill team’s roster spot

    Dec 2, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The Celtics need help on the boards, and could use an experienced big man to fill the team’s open roster spot. Someone like Kenyon Martin, maybe, who is out there and waiting to be picked up by any team that will have him. Boston has always been a team sensitive to the personalities it brings…

  14. Video: Rasheed Wallace gets ejected for yelling “ball don’t lie”

    Dec 2, 2012, 3:12 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New York Knicks

    The NBA is just more interesting when Rasheed Wallace is in it. Wallace picked up  his first ejection of his return to the NBA today and did it in classic Sheed fashion. Wallace picked up the first technical foul for some after-the-whistle contact on Luis Scola on a foul call. It was a classic Sheed…

  15. Suns’ turnovers, Knicks’ offensive rebounds earn New York win

    Dec 2, 2012, 3:04 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New York Knicks

    In the seminal NBA advanced stats book “Basketball on Paper,” Dean Oliver identifies his four factors in winning a basketball game. At the top of the list is the most obvious thing — shooting. It represents 40 percent of the outcome, Oliver said. The Suns shot better than the Knicks in a Sunday matinee at…

  16. Brandon Jennings’ three seals Bucks win over Celtics (VIDEO)

    Dec 2, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    The Celtics were playing in Milwaukee on Saturday without Rajon Rondo, who was serving the second game of his two-game suspension for starting the altercation with the Nets’ Kris Humphries on Wednesday. Boston won the first without Rondo in blowout fashion over the Blazers on Friday, and was on pace to do it again after…

  17. Nicolas Batum with the double-overtime game-winner (VIDEO)

    Dec 2, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    Nicolas Batum, Greg Stiemsma

    This clip of Nicolas Batum highlights (and lowlights) from Saturday night’s double-overtime win over the Cavaliers is great, because we get to experience the struggle before the ultimate redemption. It begins with two missed dunks in the first and second quarters, shots that Batum (and most NBA players with his skill set) can usually get…

  18. Mark Cuban says David Stern was right to fine Spurs

    Dec 2, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    Mavericks owner Cuban argues a call during NBA basketball game against Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    Mark Cuban sticking up for David Stern. Maybe the Mayans were right, the end of the world might be nigh. That said, Cuban will be quick to remind you that the NBA is a business. And the first rule of business is “the customer is always right.” When Gregg Popovich sat Tim Duncan, Tony Parker…

  19. Popovich ‘disappointed’ by league’s fine against Spurs

    Dec 2, 2012, 9:34 AM EDT

    Gregg Popovich

    After the NBA fined the Spurs $250,000 for resting four healthy starters for Thursday’s game in Miami against the defending champs, plenty of people weighed in on the decision. Saturday night before the Spurs faced the Grizzlies, it was Gregg Popovich’s turn. And while he didn’t use very strong words when explaining his feelings about…

  20. Dwight Howard says it will be “weird” to face Magic Sunday

    Dec 2, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard All-Star

    Dwight Howard looked like a guy getting healthy Friday night, like a guy finding his footing with a new team in a brand new offense — 28 points and 20 rebounds. He started to look like the best center in the game. And now on Sunday night he gets to take another step against a…
