    DeMarcus Cousins, Harrions Barnes

    Know this — the scenario about to be laid out tells you what DeMarcus Cousins and his people are thinking and hoping for. What it does not do is tell you the reality of the situation. Not in the least. The reality here is a complex dynamic that starts with Cousins firing his long-time agent…

    Dallas Mavericks head coach Carlisle reacts to call from officials NBA basketball game against Boston Celtics in Boston

    Dallas has lost six in a row and nine of their last 10 now. It hasn’t been pretty, especially the two losses to the Spurs where Dallas was barely even a threat.

    How’s that for a showcase game? With trade winds swirling around DeMarcus Cousins, the big man went out and put his skills on full display for Celtics GM Danny Ainge to get a good long look at in a huge 118-96 win at home. This wasn’t the prettiest triple-double game you’ll ever see — Cousins…

    Dec 31, 2012, 2:14 AM EDT

    Ryan Anderson, Caron Butler

    Four games, three stars on a Sunday night. As always there are some honorable mention guys left out — Tony Parker with his 21, Monta Ellis with 30 points and 9 assists, and Al Jefferson with 30 against the Clippers front line almost made the cut. But instead, it’s an all-perimeter guys three stars tonight.…

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    They say you make your own luck, but in the month of December, the Clippers have had little need to manufacture much of it. They’ve blown out most of their opponents, coasting to victory easily and often sitting their starters the entire fourth quarter. For a franchise that many thought was legitimately cursed once upon…

    Vince Carter

    There were not many highlights for Dallas out of Sunday night — the Mavs were lackluster and the Spurs were their usual efficient selves. The final result was 111-86 San Antonio. But there was Vince Carter channeling his 2002 self with an impressive spinning dunk over just returned Kawhi Leonard. So enjoy that Mavs fans.…

    Charlotte Bobcats v Brooklyn Nets

    After the Brooklyn Nets fired Avery Johnson, we heard all the big names come up. Phil Jackson. Jeff Van Gundy. Jerry Sloan.

    Roy Hibbert, Tim Duncan

    Last night in a loss to the Atlanta Hawks, Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert played just 20 minutes.

    Blake Griffin, Tony Parker, flop

    Tony Parker? Flop? Well, I never! The NBA has officially warned Parker, Royal Ivey and Gustavo Ayon today for violating the anti-flopping policy established this season.

    Jarrett Jack, Jrue Holiday

    Golden State Warriors point guard Jarrett Jack and Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul have a long-standing friendship. The two floor generals have known each other since they were teenagers on the AAU scene, and that carried over into a friendly ACC rivalry at Georgia Tech (Jack) and Wake Forest (Paul). When Jack was traded…

    Royce White

    For a second time this season, the Houston Rockets have assigned Royce White — the No. 16 overall pick from the last draft — to their D-League team. And for the second time he has refused the assignment. And from here it’s just hard to see him ever playing a moment for the Rockets. After…

    Monta Ellis, Tristan Thompson

    So the Bucks had a really great win against the Miami Heat last night. Monta Ellis had 14 points, 9 assists and 5 steals. Decent night. He shot a lot of shots, 18 to be exact, but that’s kind of what Ellis does. Well, he does that, and apparently he also gives ridiculously awesome interviews. And apparently…

    Dec 30, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    It’s going to take more than one game to make the fans of the New Orleans Hornets forgive Eric Gordon for signing an offer sheet with Phoenix last summer and saying publicly that is where he wanted to play, which combined with his injuries made it seem like he wanted out of New Orleans. But…
