  1. Derrick Rose tries to distance himself from brother’s comments

    Feb 22, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose’s brother’s comments was fuel for a conspiracy theory in Chicago — some people think he hasn’t returned to the Bulls lineup yet not because he isn’t physically ready but because he doesn’t want to risk his career for what he sees as inferior lineup. The first spark was Rose himself saying he didn’t…

    Shaquille O'Neal

    “He gave me everything I wanted. I wanted one extension – he gave it to me. I wanted a second extension, he gave it to me.

    Feb 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Hawks forward Smith shoots past Heat Anthony and Wade in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    This really isn’t news, or at least the unexpected kind. It just shines a light on the decision the Hawks made on Thursday not to move Josh Smith in any trade, to get nothing back for him if he decides to leave as a free agent this summer. And he likely is going to leave.…

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul reacts as San Antonio Spurs Parker gets past him during first quarter of NBA game in Los Angeles

    Last playoffs, in the second round, the Spurs swept the Clippers out 4-0. It was a beat down, but the kind improving teams like the Clippers are supposed to learn and grow from. Thursday night it didn’t look like the Clippers learned a thing. San Antonio’s execution exposed Los Angeles’ defense, the Clippers could get…

    Feb 22, 2013, 1:52 AM EDT

    Rockets Heat Basketball

    Another Thursday night game against a challenger, another easy win for the Heat. Dwyane Wade had a good but not terribly efficient night with 17 points on 15 shots, but he did have one pretty spin move down the lane. Wade still has got it, and before you say he doesn’t just remember he is…

  6. Heat notch ninth straight victory with easy beating of the Bulls

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James goes to the basket against Chicago Bulls' Teague during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago, Illinois

    The Heat win plenty of games with flash and brilliance, and often times play an entertaining style of basketball that’s thrilling to watch even as they’re putting a beatdown on their opponent, perhaps even as expected. Miami’s 86-67 win over Chicago on Thursday was not one of those performances. The Heat surgically struck the Bulls,…

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The narrative of the NBA Trade Deadline 2013 is going to be that it was a dud. Fans seemed to think the Lakers were going to trade Dwight Howard. Or the Celtics were going to blow it up and trade Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. The fans expected blockbusters and some of the national media…

    Feb 21, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant has never lacked for confidence. And although his Lakers are three games below .500 and 3.5 games back of the eight-seed Houston Rockets, Kobe is sure the Lakers can make the playoffs. And has no doubt that once there they can do damage. Basically because Kobe has no doubt. From an interview with…

    There are plenty of Bulls fans who over the years have been frustrated by the fact their team will not spend big to win like other large markets (think Lakers, Knicks). Those fans were out talking on Wednesday when the Bulls did nothing at the trade deadline. We had them listed among our losers because…

    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

    Feb 21, 2013, 5:28 PM EDT

    Hakim Warrick, Jason Thompson

    We didn’t get any blockbuster trades at this year’s NBA trading deadline. We saw Rudy Gay moved a few weeks before and J.J. Redick did get moved just before the deadline. But a lot of what happened at the deadline was smaller deals that slid under the radar. Here is a quick wrap-up of those…

    Feb 21, 2013, 3:42 PM EDT

    Bobcats Magic Basketball

    There were plenty of rumblings about Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith going to Milwaukee in a blockbuster three-team deal with Orlando, but that trade died when Atlanta reportedly pulled out of the deal. That trade falling apart didn’t deter the Bucks from acquiring a piece to help them in their playoff push, however. Adrian Wojnarowski…

    Feb 21, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    Sebastian Telfair, Brandon Rush

    The Suns are in a full-fledged rebuild, and have no need for serviceable reserve players who would take minutes over the team’s young talent that needs to develop. As a result, Phoenix has agreed to send Sebastian Telfair to the Raptors in exchange for Hamed Haddadi and a protected second round draft pick, according to…

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Jordan Crawford, Iman Shumpert

    Well, anytime you can trade a guy with one functioning ACL for a guy with two, you have to do it. That’s obviously an oversimplification of things, but it’s hard to argue with the logic. The Boston Celtics needed a body in the backcourt, and to get it, they traded a player who was no…

After a while not even one-year deals for the veteran minimum were available.…
