    Mike D'Antoni, Bennie Adams

    Knicks fans may think a change in coach is long past due, what with the 9-15 record in a season that held so much promise, but Knicks management continues to be patient. For once. Echoing other reports from inside the team over the past month, Newsday reports that Mike D’Antoni’s job is safe. For now.…

    hornets Carl Landry

    In a season with few bright spots in New Orleans, Carl Landry has been something solid off the bench for them. Or was, he will be out three to for weeks with an MCL sprain, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. He got it against the Pistons when he and Jason Maxiell banged knees. I’d say…

    Kevin Garnett dunk

    What you missed while preparing the chili to take to your Super Bowl party…. Celtics 98, Grizzlies 80: Vintage Kevin Garnett showed up for this game — 24 points on 12 shots, 9 rebounds and tremendous energy on defense — and that helped overwhelm a Grizzlies team that is showing how much they miss Zach…

  4. Kevin Garnett doesn’t want you to question his three ball

    Feb 5, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    For three straight games, Kevin Garnett has knocked down a three point shot. Like he’s Ray Allen or something. He’s always had a midrange shot but the deep ball is not his game, he’s no stretch four. But he’s gotten a little Brian Scalabrine in him the last week. Not that you should ask him…

  5. Clippers will attempt to continue to stockpile talent by pursuing J.R. Smith

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    The L.A. Clippers have had maybe the most impressive offseason of any team in the league. Already sitting in second place in the Western Conference standings, and with their latest acquisition, Kenyon Martin, joining the team in Orlando on Sunday, they will look to get even deeper by going after J.R. Smith, reports Brad Turner…

  6. Luol Deng and the cruel tutelage of Tom Thibodeau

    Feb 5, 2012, 2:26 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Bulls fans have been perplexed by Tom Thibodeau’s management of minutes. For the reigning Coach of the Year, a man who has transformed the Bulls into a defensive juggernaut, the East’s best regular season team and a Conference Finalist, it’s really one of the handful of criticisms you can make against Thibs. He routinely plays…

  8. Jeremy Lin came to play Saturday night, and for a night was the point guard the Knicks need

    Feb 5, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks tried Toney Douglas. They tried Iman Shumpert. They’re waiting on Baron Davis. But for a night, they got the dynamic, slashing, pick-and-roll point guard they’ve needed so badly. And the result was a win over the Nets behind Jeremy Lin‘s 25 points and 7 assists, not to mention stellar defense on Deron Williams.…

  9. Mark Cuban continues to put his money where his mouth is

    Feb 5, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Mark Cuban badgers officials. He needles the league office. He antagonizes opposing players and fans. He recently advised me on Twitter to notify him when I got a clue after a crack about Vince Carter. But he walks the walk. Cuban notoriously matches every fine he gets from the league for whatever acerbic thing he…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    How do I get invited to Nicolas Batum‘s party? The clever gentlemen at The Basketball Jones asked a number of NBA players what snacks they were bringing to Super Bowl parties — you had better like chips. And that’s from the ones who didn’t say their wives were going to handle it. Except for Batum.…

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    OK, I’m going to tell you a story, and at the end of it, we’re going to try and make heads or tails out of what’s actually going on. Because it in no way can be what is reportedly going on because if it is, then Metta World Peace is no longer the craziest individual…

    Michael Redd arrived at the US Airways Center in Phoenix more than four hours before his Suns were set to face the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday. The reason, he said, was just to get some extra work in and to keep himself prepared for when his time would come to play more minutes. He found…

  13. Seattle officials are moving on bringing an NBA team back to Seattle by fall. And the Kings are being discussed.

    There have been better separations of cities from teams. But the move of the Seattle Supersonics from Seattle to become the Oklahoma City Thunder remains the worst in the history of the NBA. It’s not just the forty years of history, the success of the franchise, the passion of the fans, it’s the way the…

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love doesn’t have a reputation as a dirty player, but that may change a bit depending on how you view the play above from Saturday night’s game between the Timberwolves and the Rockets. After a frustrating offensive trip for Love on the previous possession, and after Luis Scola turns it over and hits the…

    Jerry Sloan wants to put the whole thing behind him.

    Andrew-Bynum-and-Dwight-Howard-806-306x248

    From CBSSports.com: Despite assertions to the contrary, the Lakers remain firmly on Howard’s list of three teams he’s asked to be traded to, along with the Nets and Mavericks, multiple people familiar with the situation said. The Lakers’ clear preference is to trade Pau Gasol in a Howard deal and not Andrew Bynum, who was…

    During the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ win over the Nuggets on Friday, Matt Barnes swung his elbows a bit to clear some space, while he had possession of the ball and with Rudy Fernandez closely defending.

    Disneyland 50th Anniversary Celebration

    A year ago, Karl Malone was critical of how things went down with the resignation of Jerry Sloan. He said that there was no way Sloan would have quit, intimating that he was forced out. He also publicly asked for the coaching job, despite not having the credentials for it. The wound was re-opened this…

  20. Report: If Nash requests a trade, Suns would oblige

    Feb 4, 2012, 10:45 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    It’s really bizarre and exceptionally rare, but the truth is that the fans want better for Steve Nash than he himself wants. Nash has repeatedly said he has no desire to ask for a trade, no plan to ask for a trade, no inclination to ask for a trade. He is content to finish his…
