    Aaron Brooks, Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley

    Kings GM Geoff Petrie was a believer an Aaron Brooks. The Kings had Isaiah Thomas and Tyreke Evans as ball handlers, but Petrie believed in Brooks.

    JaVale McGee, Earl Clark

    JaVale McGee is a walking highlight. He is athletically gifted like few in the league and he can make plays that make your jaw drop. He can have just monster nights. Or, he can make a mental blunder that is a reason he is a regular on Shaqtin’ a Fool. There have been a lot…

    Greg Monroe

    This summer the draft class of 2010 is eligible for contract extensions — teams with a star they want to lock up can do what the Thunder did with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, what the Clippers did with Blake Griffin, and so on. Give your franchise player the max. So who from that draft…

    Mar 1, 2013, 2:06 PM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    Welcome to the Sixers nightmare. Their worst-case scenario was to trade Andre Iguodala and other young players and get nothing from Andrew Bynum because his nagging knee injuries flared up.

    Golden State Warriors' Thompson moves with the basketball while Indiana Pacers' George defends him during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Klay Thompson is 23, a part of the young core of the Golden State Warriors, a guy who already is considered one of the league’s better shooters. He’s still on his rookie deal, so he’s “only” going to make $2.2 million this season, and not much more next season. He’s going to make a little…

    Mar 1, 2013, 11:57 AM EDT

    Olympics Day 6 - Basketball

    Back surgery last year had Dwight Howard watching the USA Olympic Men’s Basketball Team win gold in London the same way you did — from your couch.

    Mar 1, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Thursday night in the Lakers win Dwight Howard didn’t put up monster numbers against Nikola Pekovic (who left early injured) and the Minnesota Timberwolves — 11 points, 13 rebounds — but you could see he was moving much better, particularly on the defensive end of the court. He’s healthier, his back is bothering him less, and…

    Doug Collins

    Tuesday night after an embarrassingly bad performance by the Sixers, old-school coach Doug Collins went off in an 11-minute press conference talking about effort. About being a professional.

    Mar 1, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    The last couple weeks, Ricky Rubio is starting to look like his old self. Thursday night that wasn’t enough to get Minnesota a win (the Lakers got that handily) but it was enough for Rubio to use a behind the back move that burned Kobe Bryant. Not only that but Rubio shoots so quickly and…

    Seattle skyline

    Seattle’s ownership group has plenty of money with the Microsoft CEO as the No. 2 guy (and a $30 million deposit to buy the Kings), an arena with approvals and on to the environmental stage, an energetic fan base, and most importantly an agreement with the current owners to buy the Sacramento Kings to move…

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Lakers

    There haven’t been many of these games for the Lakers this season — Kobe Bryant icing his knees in the fourth quarter, guys joking around on the bench and nobody really stressed about the outcome.

    Chicago Bulls' Joakim Noah grabs a rebound from Philadelphia 76ers' Spencer Hawes during their NBA game in Chicago

    You knew going in to Thursday night’s nationally televised contest between the Bulls and the Sixers that it was going to be a rough one to watch.
