  1. Michael Redd works out for the Suns

    Dec 29, 2011, 12:14 AM EDT

    Michael-Redd-suns

    The Suns, after suffering their first 0-2 start since the 1996-97 season following a blowout loss to the Sixers on Wednesday, are in desperate need of a reliable scorer. Michael Redd, a former All-Star and 11-year veteran shooting guard who at one time consistently averaged better than 20 points per game, is an unrestricted free…

  2. Video: LeBron James dunk blocked by opponents head

    Dec 28, 2011, 11:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James looks downcourt between plays against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    This is the best block of the year. Guaranteed. Even though it should have been a bucket. LeBron James‘ powerful dunk is blocked by the head of the Bobcats Gerald Henderson. The ball went through the basket as Henderson tried to go for the traditional block but it hits his head and bounces out. The…

  3. Grizzlies Mike Conley rolls ankle, does not return to game

    Dec 28, 2011, 11:15 PM EDT

    Conley_memphis

    Mike Conley has become the glue that holds the Grizzlies together. He feeds the ball inside to Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol, helps Rudy Gay pick his spots and is the floor general for the team. Which is was why it was trouble when just seconds into the Grizzlies playoff rematch with Oklahoma City the…

  4. Dwyane Wade leaves with a foot injury, returns to hit the game-winner (video)

    Dec 28, 2011, 8:48 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    UPDATE: All seems to be well now, as Wade checked back in with 1:23 left in the third. He still didn’t look to be 100 percent, but managed to bank home the game-winner with two seconds left to give the Heat a hard-fought, and very entertaining win over the Bobcats. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• The Miami Heat were…

  5. Report: Andrew Bynum moves really fast… off the court

    Dec 28, 2011, 8:33 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks - Game Four

    The suspension at the start the season for Andrew Bynum needs to end before he can’t drive himself to the Staples Center anymore. Andrew Bynum has been a hot target of the fine Los Angeles Police Department the last few days, reports TMZ.com (via Inside Hoops). Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Bynum was pulled…

  6. Photo of the day: Russell Westbrook’s Air Jordan rollerskates

    Dec 28, 2011, 7:15 PM EDT

    air-jordan-iii-true-blue-roller-skates-russell-westbrook-1

    You can put skates on just about anything with a soul. My in-line skates are a pair of old CCM ice skates (yea, I used to play some hockey, what of it?) I had converted over. But Russell Westbrook did me one better. Did everyone one better. He converted a pair of Air Jordan III…

  7. Making the case for Rajon Rondo as a franchise player

    Dec 28, 2011, 6:20 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    We keep hearing rumors that Rajon Rondo is on the trade block — it had been for Chris Paul but the Celtics will listen to other offers, too. They are not going to move him for just anyone, but he’s not the easiest player to get along with and Boston is keeping its options open.…

  8. Derrick Rose says he must assert himself early. Too.

    Dec 28, 2011, 5:14 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Derrick Rose came into this season trying to pull a bit of a Kobe Bryant from recent years — feed the other guys early, get them going, then take over late. Except, the result has been sluggish starts for the Bulls. (Kobe would be happy to commiserate.) The Bulls had to come from 11 points…

  9. Bucks Shaun Livingston says knee “80-90 percent”

    Dec 28, 2011, 4:22 PM EDT

    Shaun Livingston

    The fact that Shaun Livingston is back on the court and playing in NBA games is in and of itself a miracle. He suffered as gruesome an on-the-court injury as any of us have ever seen in 2007 with the Clippers. It tore his anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate and lateral meniscus, his knee joint was…

  10. Don’t expect zone defense to suddenly be Heat stopper

    Dec 28, 2011, 3:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    The NBA is a copycat league — what works for one team will be copied by others. Almost instantly. So when the Boston Celtics threw a pure zone at the Heat and climbed back into the game Tuesday night, scouts took notice. You can be sure that the Heat are going to see a lot…

  11. Jeff Green hanging with Celtics, happy he’ll get to play again

    Dec 28, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green could be devastated, sitting around his house cursing the fates and wondering what might have been. He was to be a key cog for a Celtics team looking to hang a banner, instead he is out for the season following heart surgery. Instead, Green is in a pretty good place. He spoke with…

  12. Report: Joel Przybilla drawing interest from multiple teams

    Dec 28, 2011, 1:58 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Houston Rockets, Game 6

    The next sentence may tell you all you need to know about the supply and demand for true big men in the NBA. Free agent center Joel Przybilla is drawing interest from the Milwaukee Bucks, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers, according to a report in the Journal Times. The paper’s Gery Woefel spoke to…

  13. Alex Rodriguez got treatment on knee in Germany on Kobe’s advice

    Dec 28, 2011, 1:37 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    I’m trying to picture how this conversation went down. “Hey, Kobe, it’s Alex Rodriguez. You know, your counterpart from baseball as the most hated guy in the league.” “That Kris Humphries now.” “Oh, sorry. How’s the family?” Silence. “Anyway, wanted to ask you a quick question about that knee treatment you got done in Germany…”…

  14. Tyson Chandler not shocked at Mavericks 0-2 start

    Dec 28, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    The Dallas Mavericks have gone from hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy to getting blown out two games in a row on their home floor to start the season. It’s ugly. Younger teams ran the Mavs into the ground and Dallas’ transition defense was nonexistant. It should get better, but it’s ugly now and next up…

  15. Welcome Norris Cole, your new fan favorite in Miami

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:55 PM EDT

    Norris Cole Getty

    Norris Cole was fearless. Fans can sense that and love it. Cole became the new fan favorite (behind the big 3) in Miami by scoring 14 fourth-quarter points to stave off a Boston comeback and keep the Heat perfect on the young season. Cole, the rookie out of Cleveland State, was the man knocking down…

  16. Deron Williams wants some help in New Jersey. Ya think?

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:09 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Reading Deron Williams‘ comments in the New York Times, you get the idea that Williams likes living in New York. He is living in SoHo with his family and commuting to New Jersey, plus doing charity work in Brooklyn. He’s happy there. He was at a party Tuesday night in SoHo to celebrate his partnership…

  17. Wednesday And-1 links, where Nets fans want Dwight Howard

    Dec 28, 2011, 11:07 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Welcome to our morning 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). Nets fans started a chant of “we want Howard” at the team’s home opener Tuesday. No, Deron Williams did not start it. As far as…

  18. Kobe Bryant on 1-2 start: “Shoulda won all three”

    Dec 28, 2011, 10:36 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant remains Kobe Bryant. He keeps sounding like Patrick Swayze in Roadhouse — “pain don’t hurt” — and believing that he can carry the Lakers to a title regardless of the roster. So is anyone shocked at his post-game comments Tuesday, reported by the Orange County Register, after the Lakers finally got in the…

  19. Video: NBA’s top 10 plays from Tuesday

    Dec 28, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    In case you weren’t flipping around on league pass Tuesday night, here are the top 10 plays of the night, as compiled by NBA.com. Best of the bunch may be the two blocks by Dwyane Wade, who may well be the best shot-blocking point guard ever to play the game. But any time this high-flying…

  20. Report: Magic want veterans, not to rebuild after Howard

    Dec 28, 2011, 8:08 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Right now, the Dwight Howard soap opera is on hiatus. The Magic have stopped all trade talk and are focusing on this season and convincing Howard to stay in Orlando. I’m pretty sure opening day did not help their cause. In the least. Eventually Orlando is going to have to trade Howard. His demand is…
