  1. Video: Blake Griffin takes seat in front row, drives up drycleaning bills

    Mar 19, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    I suppose if you can afford front row seats to an NBA game, you can afford the dry cleaning bill that is going to come with Blake Griffin spilling beer all over you. Now, whether you can afford another beer at the Staples Center prices is another matter. (Why is it you pay more for…

  2. Derek Fisher still wants to play, is seeking contenders

    Mar 19, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    Derek Fisher has gone through the waiver process — no team was going to absorb his full $3.4 million salary — and now has agreed to a buyout of his contract with the Houston Rockets. The Rockets got him in a trade deadline deal for Jordan Hill and a pick but Fisher asked to negotiate…

  3. Kevin Love, J.J. Barea have to be separated on bench

    Mar 19, 2012, 9:28 AM EDT

    Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves competes in the three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    Minnesota was a frustrated team Sunday — they were losing to the Kings, playing poorly and it outing like this that will have the Timberwolves on the outside looking in at the playoffs. And that caused everything to bubble over — during a fourth quarter timeout Kevin Love and J.J. Barea had to be separated…

  4. National attention on the way for a Suns team that’s earned it in recent weeks

    Suns owner Robert Sarver made a rare appearance at Alvin Gentry’s pre-game media session before Sunday night’s game against the Rockets, which the head coach traditionally holds in a very relaxed atmosphere in his office. Sarver was in good spirits and wanted to joke around a little, and with the way his team has played…

    Mar 19, 2012, 8:12 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    “I thought we were going to get Gasol, Bynum and Kobe. But they turned down the second-round draft pick we offered.” — Celtics coach Doc Rivers, joking about the insanity of the rumors around the trade deadline. Thing is, you know somebody tried to work this out on the trade machine. Quote via IamaGM.com.

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bosh looks good in Heat victory

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:10 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while thinking a new study proves your children are brilliant…. Heat 91, Magic 81: Everybody talks about the big man the Heat could use. We often underestimate Chris Bosh — he had 23 points on 13 shots. Dwyane Wade owned the fourth quarter with 14 of his 31 coming then, when the…

  7. Video: Donte Green, Jeremy Pargo with dunks of the day

    Mar 19, 2012, 12:27 AM EDT

    Donte Green

    Since you spent your Sunday watching the state of Ohio dominate college basketball (four of the Sweet 16) I wanted to bring you a couple of the dunks you missed from the NBA. But I couldn’t decide between Donte Green’s reverse for the Kings (above) or Jeremy Pargo making a Kevin Seraphin poster. So, we’re…

  8. Nuggets sign Wilson Chandler for five-years, complete Ujiri’s master plan of athletic wing army

    Mar 18, 2012, 8:37 PM EDT

    Wilson Chandler, Kobe Bryant

    Took them long enough, but Denver got their guy. The Denver Post reported Sunday that the Nuggets have signed free agent Wilson Chandler: Chandler spent the year in China expecting a prolonged lockout, then was released from his contract when his team was eliminated from play in the CBA and allowed to return stateside. There…

  9. Derek Fisher bought out by Rockets

    Mar 18, 2012, 6:46 PM EDT

    Derek Fisher

    As expected, the Rockets have reached a buyout with Derek Fisher, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski. Fisher will likely have a deal with a contender soon. A new rule in the collective bargaining agreement doesn’t allow him to get bought out after a trade and re-sign with the Lakers this season. Fisher had a…

  10. Gerald Green comeback takes another step, Nets sign him for remainder of season

    Mar 18, 2012, 5:49 PM EDT

    Gerald Green

    The Nets signed Gerald Green for the remainder of the season Sunday. The man most known for his dunk contest performance in 2008 has actually played really well (and dunked amazingly) this year in 11 games for the Nets, averaging 19 points per 36 minutes on 52 percent shooting. The Nets can use as much…

  11. Kobe understands Fisher trade better than some Lakers fans

    Mar 18, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    It’s a cold business with little room for sentimentality. Derek Fisher was part of the problem for the Lakers at the point guard spot. If the Lakers were going to have any shot at a ring they needed an upgrade — Ramon Sessions is an upgrade. A big upgrade. Steve Blake is a solid backup.…

  12. Weekend Observations: 25 notes about the trade deadline

    Mar 18, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We’re thee days past the trade deadline. Some players have already landed and played a game with their new teams, some haven’t even arrived in their new destinations (does Hasheem Thabeet really have that busy of a calendar?). But we’re starting to recover from the shock of a still-nuts-if-quieter-than-last-year deadline that saw two coaches let go…

  13. A small part of why the Nuggets traded Nene: Kenneth Faried

    Mar 18, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    kenneth-faried

    So many trades are made for singular reasons. A team will need to change its identity. A relationship between a player and a coach will become toxic. A player will be leaving in free agency. But there are often times trades that “make sense, ” as the popular phraseology goes, because they’re good for multiple…

  14. Video: Another day, another monster slam from Blake Griffin

    Mar 18, 2012, 12:02 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin is going to end his career mentioned with Vince Carter, Shawn Kemp and the other great in-game dunkers of the NBA at his peak. Because he does things like this every game. It helps to have Chris Paul feeding you and all, but this guy is a monster. Whether he finishes his career…

  15. USA Basketball coaches suddenly have extra time to prepare for Olympics

    Mar 17, 2012, 7:29 PM EDT

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    Jim Boeheim should be nervous. Let’s just say, I’m not betting on Syracuse next week. It’s been a tough week for three of the four coaches that will lead Team USA this summer in the 2012 Olympics in London — Mike Krzyzewski, Mike D’Antoni and Nate McMillan. Head coach Krzyzewski’s Duke Blue Devils screwed up…

  16. Of course Michael Heisley is in talks with Larry Ellison, things were going too well

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    Best season in franchise history from an overall success and excitement standpoint. First playoff game victory. First playoff series victory. Significant improvements in fan interest and long-term viability of on-court production. Things have been going really well in Memphis, Tennessee when it comes to the Grizzlies. So, of course, this is happening. From the Memphis Commercial-Appeal:…

  17. Reports indicate that the Hornets understand the rebuilding process

    Mar 17, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Bismack Biyombo,  Chris Kaman

    I’m about to bring up The Veto again. I don’t want to. I think I’m pretty clear on where I stand on the whole thing. (To catch you up if you don’t read regularly or follow on Twitter, Lakers trade for Paul was bad for both the Hornets and Rockets, but especially the Hornets who…

  18. In case you needed it, more proof Dwight’s decision making Wednesday night was absurd

    Mar 17, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    I’m about to share with you a few paragraphs from a must-read piece on the Dwight Howard debacle of this week by ESPN”s Michael Wallace, and then we’re going to talk about it for a minute. But 86-year-old Magic owner Rich DeVos confirmed Friday that an 11th-hour conference call he had with Howard on Wednesday…

  19. Quote of the Day: B-Easy is a six-year-old, apparently

    Mar 17, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley on what he was doing at the NBA Trade Deadline while rumors swirled around him regarding a potential trade to the Lakers which never came through: “I know exactly what I was doing: I watching Fanboy and Chum Chum, eating pizza, French fries and lemonade,” he said, referring to a Nickelodeon cartoon and…

  20. The Warriors aren’t exactly ‘all-in’ with Stephen Curry, would have traded him for Bogut if necessary

    Mar 17, 2012, 10:37 AM EDT

    stephen curry

    The Warriors really wanted Andrew Bogut. You can argue about whether they should have wanted the 27-year-old injured center who has said his elbow will never recover fully from the horrific fall it suffered and who is currently out with an ankle fracture. But for the Warriors, the trade this past week of Monta Ellis and…
