  1. Report: Dwight Howard mocked Kobe Bryant in All-Star locker room

    Feb 19, 2013, 11:56 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Let’s start out right here — take this report with a grain of salt. Actually, a handful of kosher salt. I say that because there was no buzz about this in Houston. I say take the salt because every NBA reporter in America who breaks these kind of stories was in Houston and it leaked…

  2. Dennis Rodman talks Celebrity Apprentice, Jerry Buss with Leno (VIDEO)

    Feb 19, 2013, 11:13 AM EDT

    Dennis Rodman

    Dennis Rodman, wearing a jacket that would make Craig Sager jealous, swung by the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday night. He talked about his new children’s book and what he’s been doing. But when asked about Dr. Jerry Buss, Rodman almost breaks down in tears, saying he was like his dad. They also…

  3. Detroit made its big trade already, don’t expect another

    Feb 19, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    Jose Calderon

    The Detroit Pistons have made a big move — Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye are out, Jose Calderon is in (part of the three team Rudy Gay trade). So as the trade deadline approaches, Pistons fans shouldn’t expect another big move, reports the Detroit Free Press. One source even said: “You have already had the…

  4. Sixers not looking to make big trade as they wait for Bynum

    Feb 19, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    The plan in Philadelphia before the season started was to put Andrew Bynum on the court with Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner and see what they’ve got. That’s still the plan. Eventually. Bynum’s still not back so the most basic questions the Sixers have remain unanswered. So don’t expect the Sixers to go making a…

  5. The smaller deals: A trade rumor update as deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    We told you, the big deals we love to talk about are not as likely to happen this year. There’s a lot of buzz about the Celtics but if you were around Kevin Garnett at all All-Star weekend you saw a guy adamant he is not waiving he no trade clause. The Lakers are not…

  6. Fear of tax may make this slower-than-usual trade deadline

    Feb 19, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Phoenix Suns

    All-Star weekend usually signals the official start of a frenzied week of rumors and eventually trades in the NBA. Everybody is in town — this year Houston — and general managers are talking face-to-face rather than texting and by Tuesday trades are picking up steam. But maybe not this year. If there was a buzz…

  7. Jeremy Lin says he’s “thankful” he wasn’t voted as All-Star starter

    Feb 19, 2013, 2:08 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    It came down to about 45,000 votes. That’s how much separated eventual NBA All-Star Game MVP Chris Paul from being replaced as a starter by Jeremy Lin (who finished with 883,809 votes, more than 400,000 than teammate James Harden). Now that the All-Star weekend circus has moved on from Houston, Lin can be honest —…

  8. Odd report Trail Blazers shopping J.J. Hickson

    Feb 19, 2013, 1:31 AM EDT

    J.J. Hickson

    The Portland Trail Blazers have given J.J. Hickson more minutes than anyone had before and the result has been not only more points but more efficiency — 12.7 points on 56.6 percent shooting, 10.3 rebounds and a PER of 20.2 this season. If you believe in the idea of selling high on a player then…

  9. Report: Celtics exploring Josh Smith trade ideas (which might mean Pierce)

    Feb 18, 2013, 11:21 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    If one big name is going to move at the NBA trade deadline Thursday it is Josh Smith. The question is where — the Buck, Rockets, Spurs, Nets and… really it might be faster to list the teams that have not had contact with the Hawks about Smith. Now comes the report that the Celtics…

  10. Lakers will remain in Buss family. But now a new legacy begins.

    Feb 18, 2013, 8:32 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    Lakers fans have always felt uneasy talking about the reality that hit the team today — life for the organization after Jerry Buss, who passed away Monday morning. The Hall of Fame Lakers owner was the man with the vision and plan that made the Lakers the most successful franchise in the NBA of the…

  11. Jerry Buss’ Hall of Fame induction speech

    Feb 18, 2013, 8:02 PM EDT

    Jerry Buss Hall of Fame

    It seems like he should have been in earlier, but in 2010 the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame inducted Lakers owner Jerry Buss into its ranks. He’s earned it. Not just for guiding the franchise to 10 titles and making the finals 48.4 percent of the years he owned the team, but for how he…

  12. Derrick Rose plays 5-on-5 in practice

    Feb 18, 2013, 6:06 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Coming back from an ACL injury, even the smallest feats can feel like big ones. For what is believed to be the first time since the injury, Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose participated in 5-on-5 drills with his teammates at practice. Rose has been sidelined from game action since April 28th of 2012, the night…

  13. Add the Sacramento Kings to the list of teams unlikely to deal before the trade deadline

    Feb 18, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Francisco Garcia, Isaiah Thomas, Tyreke Evans

    It’s hard to care too much about what happens on the actual court for the Sacramento Kings right now. With the ownership and relocation drama looming over the team at all times, there are bigger fights to be had than regular season games. It’s a difficult situation for everyone — members of the organization, players,…

  14. Chris Paul talks about winning All-Star Game MVP (VIDEO)

    Feb 18, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    Chris Paul is the best player in the NBA at orchestrating the game. Other guys — LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant — are more athletic and can take a game over with their skills, but CP3 is be more of a conductor. He can score, but he wants to control the game mentally and…

  15. Report: Jazz assistant coach Sidney Lowe arrested for not paying state taxes

    Feb 18, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Sidney Lowe

    The government doesn’t mess around when it comes to getting its money. Which is what former NBA player and current Utah Jazz assistant coach Sidney Lowe found out when they came knocking at his door this week, reports WRAL Sports out of North Caronia (where Lowe lives in the off-season). Sidney Lowe, former head men’s…

    Jerry Buss

    The following is just a small sampling from the reaction around the Internet (and around the world) on the passing of Lakers owner Jerry Buss. “We not only have lost our cherished father, but a beloved man of our community and a person respected by the world basketball community… (He) showed his amazing strength and…

  17. Philadelphia 76ers to sign guard Jeremy Pargo for rest of season

    Feb 18, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Jeremy Pargo

    The Philadelphia 76ers have struggled with injuries and they’ve struggled finding a useful backup point guard this season. Maalik Wayns had his shot…and shot 26 percent from the field with a PER of 2. Royal Ivey hasn’t been a whole lot better with a PER of 8.9. Although he wasn’t great on his 10-day contract…

    Feb 18, 2013, 1:46 PM EDT

    Matt Bonner

    Nobody does NBA humor videos like the guys at The Basketball Jones. And I’m not just saying that because they let me play some pickup ball Sunday with them in Houston, I thought that before they let me float around on the wing and waive my arms trying to get a pass. They went around…

    The Celtics have been hit hard with the injury bug lately, losing both Rajon Rondo and Leandro Barbosa for the season to knee injuries. It’s the latter injury, to Barbosa, that has the Celtics exploring their options on the wing, looking for a swingman who could soak up some minutes. It seems the player they’re…

And at least two of the team’s key players are confident the team will get back on track once the regular season resumes on Tuesday.
