    Are you into conspiracy theories and NBA basketball? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Late Tuesday night, a link began circulating on Twitter to a page on the NBA’s online store that would allow you to buy a New Jersey Nets t-shirt, as if Dwight Howard — of the Orlando Magic currently, but…

  2. Dwight Howard says he wants to stay, finish season with Magic

    Mar 13, 2012, 11:55 PM EDT

    Magic center Howard walks off the Magic's home basketball court after their NBA game against the Heat in Orlando

    Do the Orlando Magic feel like gambling? After the Orlando Magic came up with a dramatic 104-98 win over the Miami Heat, Dwight Howard said he wants to play the rest of the season with Orlando. Not sign an extension and stay — he wants the Orlando Magic to “roll the dice” on him. Here…

  3. Warriors reach deal to send Ellis to Bucks for Bogut, Jackson

    Mar 13, 2012, 9:03 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis, Chris Singleton

    What happened to the Golden State franchise that would only trade Monta Ellis to Orlando if they got Dwight Howard back? This isn’t that. In the first of the deadline trades this year, Golden State will send Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown to the Milwaukee Bucks for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson. Adrian Wojnarowski…

  4. Report: Brandon Jennings won’t be traded

    Mar 13, 2012, 8:28 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 7

    As Thursday’s NBA trade deadline looms, there are certain players who can expect to hear conflicting reports as to what’s really going on with their status. Dwight Howard, based on his own actions, is certainly at the top of that list. Brandon Jennings, however, wasn’t expecting to hear his name at all. But as several…

  5. Stan Van Gundy has had it with the Dwight Howard rumors

    Mar 13, 2012, 7:16 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Stan Van Gundy knows the Orlando Magic have a huge problem on their hands. No, not the one you’re thinking of. He’s thinking of tonight’s game against the Miami Heat. And in his pregame press conference the Magic coach was on fire about all the rumors — like the one that Howard was told if…

  6. With nobody offering enough, Blazers may keep Felton

    Mar 13, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Ray Felton

    Point guard Raymond Felton is not meshing with the slow-it-down, grind-it-out style of Nate McMillan’s Portland Trail Blazers. That’s why he was on the trade block. But the Blazers aren’t just giving him away, either. Unless the landscape changes or the offers get better in the next couple days, Felton may just stay a Blazer,…

  7. Report: Bulls trying to engage Lakers in Pau Gasol trade talks

    Mar 13, 2012, 5:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol of Spain fights for a rebound with Boston Celtics' Paul Pierce during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The feeling among Bulls fans is they have a good team — one built for the regular season but one that cannot get by the Heat in the playoffs. Not as the teams stand now. I don’t think the gap between the two teams (when healthy) is that great, but the Heat do look the…

  8. Derrick Rose fined $25,000 for comments about officials

    Mar 13, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Rose tosses the ball in front of Los Angeles Clippers' Paul after the Bulls turned the ball over during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    We told you this was coming, and here it is. Derrick Rose has been fined $25,000 by the league for comments made about officials after the Bulls beat the Knicks Monday night. Yes, the Bulls won but Rose was still frustrated. What did Rose say that was so egregious? Well… “I’ve got to be the…

  9. Dwight Howard update: Magic want to talk to Lakers, Howard wants Nets

    Mar 13, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    There are two sides to where things stand with Dwight Howard less than 48 hours before the NBA trade deadline. One is what the Magic are doing and thinking. The other is what Howard wants. What the Magic are doing is having GM Otis Smith keep fielding offers and look for deals while ownership decides…

  10. Report: Knicks trying to trade Toney Douglas. Good luck with that.

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:41 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    One of the fun parts of the NBA trade deadline is the garage sale aspect of it — “we have no use for broken record player, but maybe somebody will buy it for 50¢.” It’s essentially the Washington Wizards entire trade strategy. And the Knicks are getting into that mode to — Toney Douglas has…

  11. Winderman: Why Orlando has to trade Dwight Howard

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:17 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    That’s a pretty impressive piece of trivia that Stan Van Gundy is about to be attached to, if you believe the scuttlebutt: the first NBA head coach to be fired by both Shaquille O’Neal and Dwight Howard (if you accepted the speculation back in December 2005 with the Heat). But if we actually decide to…

  12. Video: Bismack Biyombo with game-winning block for Bobcats

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:07 PM EDT

    Bismack Biyombo,  Chris Kaman

    I know, we should have a policy of running Bobcats video every time they win. I really need to work on that. For now, settle for my favorite play from Monday night — Bismack Biyombo with the game winning block. The Bobcats and Hornets had everything you would expect from two of the worst teams…

  13. Magic deny report Howard can decide fate of coach, GM

    Mar 13, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Stan Van Gundy

    It’s nothing new for a star player to have sway over who gets chosen as coach or in the front office. Magic Johnson pushed Paul Westhead out to door after they had won a title, and the Clippers were rumored to make that pitch to LeBron James a couple of years ago (but I’m sure…

  14. Report: Warriors owner kills Monta Ellis to Orlando

    Mar 13, 2012, 1:07 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Do the Orlando Magic want to acquire Monta Ellis in a desperate effort to prove to Dwight Howard how they want to keep him and put real talent around him? You bet they do. But it takes two teams to make a trade, and reports out of the Bay Area have consistently said they would…

  15. Report: Like Knicks fans, ‘Melo unhappy with D’Antoni

    Mar 13, 2012, 12:23 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jeremy Lin, Mike D'Antoni

    The scapegoats of the week in New York are Carmelo Anthony and Mike D’Antoni — clearly they are the reasons the Knicks have lost six in a row. And now, we bring you the next phase of the Knicks implosion — infighting and blaming the coach. From Marc Berman of the New York Post. There…

  16. Tuesday And-1 links: Rondo’s pregame meal? Sushi.

    Mar 13, 2012, 11:20 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo celebrates during their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Los Angeles

    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). Rajon Rondo’s pregame meal? Sushi, of course. (I was in the locker room last night and can confirm this.) What would life be like if…

  17. Frustrated Derrick Rose criticizes referees, fine coming soon

    Mar 13, 2012, 10:55 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    Derrick Rose is a smart man, he knew as he was ripping the referees after the Bulls win over the Knicks Monday night that a fine would be forthcoming. But the man with the new big contract with the Bulls — not to mention a new big deal with Adidas — seemed to think the…

  18. Magic may want to land Ellis, but trade complicated, unlikely

    Mar 13, 2012, 10:33 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis, Chris Singleton

    It looks more and more like the Orlando Magic are going to go with the Jerry West philosophy and call Dwight Howard’s bluff — go ahead and leave us and that guaranteed $30 million on the table. (Which is not really $30 million, really, but we’ll get to that.) What’s more, they are trying to…

  19. Danny Ainge: “Rondo’s not being traded”

    Mar 13, 2012, 8:37 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo (9) shoots over Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    Danny Ainge was unequivocal as you can be in speaking with A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com before the Celtics took on the Clippers Monday night. “Rondo’s not being traded,” Danny Ainge, Boston’s president of basketball operations, told CSNNE.com prior to the Celtics facing the Los Angeles Clippers. “I don’t know how many times I have…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another day, another Knicks loss

    Mar 13, 2012, 7:56 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Chandler is defended by Chicago Bulls' Asik, Gibson and Butler during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while getting Michael Jordan’s likeness shaved into your hair… Celtics 94, Clippers 85: The Celtics sucked all the fun out of Lob City, and it worked for them in our game of the night. Timberwolves 127, Suns 124: It was a shootout in the desert, and our own Brett Pollakoff was there.…
