  1. Michael Jordan played some one-on-one with Bobcats

    Dec 12, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    He’s not quite the same explosive player he was, even from his Wizards days, but it’s safe to say that even at age 49 Michael Jordan’s post footwork right now will best a lot of the Charlotte Bobcats. A few of them got to find out first hand as Jordan waded into a team practice…

    Premiere Of  Summit Entertainment's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" - Arrivals

    Terrell Owens can’t get an NFL contract right now (39-year-old receivers rarely do), so he’s looking at some other career options. Like the NBA. Maybe not officially, but he’s been around the Clippers and their workout facility. Blake Griffin was talking about him on the Dan Patrick Show (which you can see on the NBC Sports…

  3. Report: Mike Bibby working out for the Grizzlies

    Dec 12, 2012, 2:12 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby

    The Lakers are in desperate need of point guard help, and are rumored to be weighing the Delonte West option for some immediate assistance until Steve Nash and Steve Blake are healthy enough to return to action. L.A. is a disaster at this point in the season, so the desperation is understandable. It’s a little…

    Dec 12, 2012, 1:51 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion, J.J. Hickson

    Shawn Marion has missed the last two games with a groin strain, one he suffered in his team’s win over the Suns in Phoenix last week. Marion’s team has managed just fine without him, however, winning a tough one in Houston before coasting to an easy one at home against the horrendous Sacramento Kings. Dallas…

    zaza pachulia

    Zaza Pachulia received an official warning for violating the league’s anti-flopping policy, it was announced on Tuesday.

  6. Jason Terry has no hard feelings toward Mavs, but he wants to beat them

    Dec 12, 2012, 1:04 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    Jason Terry is an NBA veteran, and league veterans tend not to take the business of the Association too personally. So Jason Terry harbors no ill will toward Dallas, something he said as he and his Celtics teammates face Dallas Wednesday night. But that doesn’t mean he wasn’t disappointed Mark Cuban decided to take the…

    tim duncan west all star

    When the league made changes to the All-Star voting process for this season, it was largely referred to as the Tim Duncan rule. There is no more designation specifically for the center position, one which the Spurs famously lobbied for Tim Duncan — who, for the most part, plays at center — to be excluded…

    Omer Asik

    Omer Asik received a warning for flopping against Tim Duncan during the Rockets loss to the Spurs on Dec. 10, the league announced. This is a good one, especially in slow motion. As the shot goes up, Asik battles Tim Duncan for rebounding position. Duncan uses his forearm to keep Asik from the ball, and…

  10. Video: Clippers with four huge dunks in two minutes on Bulls

    Dec 12, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin

    You’ll have to forgive the Clippers announcers hyperbole through this (or you can just turn the sound down — they shouldn’t be comparing Blake Griffin to Michael Jordan inside the United Center), but this was still must see video. The Clippers are still lob city, they still put on an arial show night after night.…

  11. Cousins responds to Mayo saying he had “mental issues”

    Dec 12, 2012, 11:26 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    O.J. Mayo was ticked when DeMarcus Cousins elbowed him below the belt — because all guys are ticked or worse when we get hit there. Cousins said it wasn’t intentional, but Mayo fired shots at him postgame, saying, “”That guy has some mental issues, man…. He’s immature, man. Big maturity problem.” Cousins responded, speaking with…

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    Report: Lakers considering adding Delonte West, other point guard There are no easy answers for the Lakers, because their problems are not tied to just one thing.

  14. Video: Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving put on a show

    Dec 12, 2012, 9:18 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving

    It really felt like the Kyrie Irving and Kobe Bryant show at points Tuesday night. And it was damn entertaining. When the two went head-to-head Kobe got the best of the battle, but Irving and the Cavaliers fot the win. Both guys put up big lines but both were efficient, too — Kobe had 42…

  15. Report: Wizards’ owner rejected trade for James Harden

    Dec 12, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    James Harden

    James Harden — his playmaking skills, his 24.7 points per game and his beard — could have been members of the Washington Wizards. But owner Ted Leonsis balked at the cost. That according to a Washington Post report: The Washington Wizards turned down a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder for James Harden this summer…

    Dec 12, 2012, 2:29 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony reacts after he scored past Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace in NBA game in New York

    This was one of those nights when a number of guys could have made the three-stars list — Blake Griffin had 22 points and 10 rebounds; Carlos Boozer had 24 points and 13 rebounds; Ty Lawson with an impressive 26 points; and there were others in consideration. Even Andray Blatche. But in the end, these…

  18. Raptors’ Amir Johnson gets off light, one game suspension

    Dec 12, 2012, 1:28 AM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus, Amir Johnson

    Generally, if you get in a wrestling match over a ball with a referee then, when ejected, you take your mouthpiece and throw it at him, you are lined up for more than one game of suspension. But the Raptors Amir Johnson admitted afterward that he was “childish” and apologized, and with that he got…

  19. Kyrie Irving is back and sends Lakers to new low, new loss

    Dec 11, 2012, 11:34 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard is fouled by Cleveland Cavaliers Tyler Zeller during the first quarter of their NBA basketball game  in Cleveland

    If you’re a Lakers fan you have to believe that at some point they reach rock bottom and start to bounce back. It’s just that they hadn’t reached it yet. The Lakers offense took a vacation and their defense had no answer Kyrie Irving and the result of all that is the Lakers falling to…
