  1. Video: See Jared Dudley broadcast a badminton game

    Jan 10, 2012, 2:04 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Suns swingman Jared Dudley is one of the more fun guys to talk to around the league, a guy kind of up for anything. Like making fun of the future broadcasting career we all know he has. Best part of this is the end when Dudley tries to broadcast a youth badminton game. Yelling “miss”…

  2. Spencer Hawes worked out with Shawn Kemp this summer

    Jan 10, 2012, 1:36 PM EDT

    shawn_kemp

    Stop laughing. This is not a joke. There was a time when everybody was a Shawn Kemp fan. Back in the days of his high-top fade he was as ferocious a dunker as the league has ever seen and force in the paint, a guy with the skills to grab the rebound and go coast-to-coast.…

  3. Andrew Bogut returns to Milwaukee lineup Tuesday

    Jan 10, 2012, 12:54 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Good news for a Bucks team that desperately needs a little lift — Andrew Bogut is expected back Tuesday night when Milwaukee hosts San Antonio, reports the Journal Sentinel (via SLAM). Bogut had a family issue to attend to back in his native Australia and had an excused absence from the team. There is no…

  4. Ricky Davis Among Former NBA Stars In Action During Day 2 Of D-League Showcase

    Jan 10, 2012, 12:15 PM EDT

    Ricky Davis

    The 2012 NBA Development League Showcase started off solidly on Monday in lovely Reno, Nev., as it included a little bit of everything — the first in-season call-up of the season, standout performances from several players around the league and everyone’s favorite NBA executive — Daryl Morey of the Houston Rockets  — sounding excited about…

  5. Jeff Green had successful heart surgery Monday

    Jan 10, 2012, 11:46 AM EDT

    Jeff Green

    Good news out of the Boston area — Jeff Green had successful heart surgery Monday. Green was to be a key part of the Celtics bench until a routine preseason physical found an aneurysm — an abnormal ballooning of an artery near the heart — that required surgery. That surgery went well, according to CSNNE.com.…

  6. Tuesday And-1 links: LaMarcus Aldridge coming to Portlandia

    Jan 10, 2012, 11:16 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol

    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). Confession: I love Portlandia (the IFC comedy show). I really am going to love the episode where LaMarcus Aldridge makes a cameo. Kevin Garnett tells…

  7. Wizards need more than just better talent, need culture change

    Jan 10, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    John Wall, Trevor Booker, JaVale McGee

    There’s a reason, beyond just good scouting, that the San Antonio Spurs seem to find guys deep in the draft who can contribute. It’s a culture thing, a character thing. They have built a culture of responsibility and accountability around that franchise — no matter who you are you fit the system and play your…

  8. Baron Davis expected back around end of January

    Jan 10, 2012, 10:19 AM EDT

    baron davis

    Here is why we have some doubts about the Knicks: They are waiting for the backcourt of Baron Davis and Iman Shumpert to save them. Knicks fans are not wrong to hope — their team’s backcourt play has been bad enough that the enigmatic Davis and rookie Shumpert provide the best hope. It’s just that,…

  9. Teams undefeated in third game of back-to-back-to-back

    Jan 10, 2012, 8:15 AM EDT

    Keith Smart, DeMarcus Cousins

    These were supposed to be scheduled losses. The third game of the back-to-back-to-backs thrown at teams in this lockout-induced condensed schedule were supposed to be games where the players walked around, coaches threw up their hands and the season ticket holders wondered why they came. Instead, teams are 6-0 in that third game so far…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Knicks love their ‘Melo iso

    Charlotte Bobcats' Diaw fouls New York Knicks' Anthony during their NBA basketball game in New York

    What you missed while waiting for LSU to score…. 76ers 96, Pacers 86: This was our game of the night, you can read about it here. Knicks 91, Bobcats 87: Every good team has a bad team that just gives them fits. Maybe the Bobcats are that for the Knicks. Or, maybe we are overestimating…

  11. Sixers beat Pacers… can Philly win the Atlantic division?

    Jan 10, 2012, 1:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jeff Foster, Lance Stephenson, Tyler Hansbrough

    We’re only eight games into the season — about 12 percent of the way —so drawing broad conclusions is tough. But it was hard not to look at a couple games Monday night and not have one particular question pop up. The game first was the 76ers taking on the Indiana Pacers, two of the…

  12. Brandon Costner Highlights Top Performers In D-League Showcase’s First Day

    Jan 10, 2012, 12:17 AM EDT

    Brandon Costner

    The NBA Development League Showcase has 16 games scheduled over the next four days in Reno, Nev., but as the name implies, the entire point of the D-League’s annual affair is for players to showcase themselves in front of the plethora of NBA decision makers in attendance. As Brandon Costner and the Los Angeles D-Fenders…

  13. Kwame Brown wants some credit for Andrew Bynum’s success

    Jan 9, 2012, 9:17 PM EDT

    andrew-bynum-kwame-brown-flex

    Andrew Bynum is blowing up this season — averaging 18.8 points and 15.7 rebounds per game, he is putting up numbers that are making Lakers fans rethink their Dwight Howard fascination. He is showing more polish and power, getting more shots right at the rim (7.7 attempts per game) and he is a beast on…

  14. Dwyane Wade utters two scary words: plantar fasciitis

    Jan 9, 2012, 7:11 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    Dwyane Wade has sat out three consecutive games with what has been described as a bruised foot, but in talking with Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel Monday he used some scary language. “I don’t know, man, it’s just hurting. It could be three different things. (Plantar fasciitis is) one of them. The bruise is…

  15. Video: Watch Barack Obama joke around with Mavericks

    Jan 9, 2012, 5:44 PM EDT

    U.S. President Obama hosts 2011 NBA champions Dallas Mavericks at the White House in Washington

    Mark Cuban twisted arms and bench schedules to get his champion Dallas Mavericks a date at the White House. The league did not schedule the Mavericks to make a stop in Washington D.C. as part of the shortened post-lockout schedule but Cuban found a way. Obama jokes around with Dallas, saying the veteran team was…

  16. Kevin Love says he is the best power forward in the game

    Jan 9, 2012, 5:12 PM EDT

    Kevin Love, Tim Duncan

    Kevin Love is a pretty special player. A double-double machine who on offense has smooth moves around the rim to go with shooting range out to the three-point line. He’s as good a rebounder as there is in the game. So mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the best power forward of them all?…

  17. San Antonio Spurs Call Up Malcolm Thomas From D-League Showcase

    Jan 9, 2012, 4:44 PM EDT

    Malcolm Thomas

    The NBA Development Showcase tipped off on Monday morning and, just two games into the four-day affair, the event has already shown why it’s useful. The San Antonio Spurs have decided to call-up Malcolm Thomas from the Los Angeles D-Fenders, Pro Basketball Talk has learned from sources close the situation. It’s an interesting first in-season…

  18. Video: LeBron takes hard-hitting questions from children

    Jan 9, 2012, 4:19 PM EDT

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    We’ve all got questions for LeBron James. Lots of them. But the ones that the children of Liverpool have for him are a little different. “Are you taller than my dad?” “Are you taller than a giraffe?” And my personal favorite: “Shouldn’t your first name be James?” When in Liverpool — remember he is part…

  19. Yi Jianlian recalled by Mavericks, solving all their problems

    Jan 9, 2012, 3:12 PM EDT

    Yi Jianlian

    The Dallas Mavericks don’t just want one low-cost project big man to fill out their rotation. They want all of them. Dallas’ signing of Ian Mahinmi last summer has paid off nicely this year, and in an effort to find a similarly successful player on an equally affordable salary, the Mavs signed former lottery pick…

  20. Wizards deny any spat between Rashard Lewis, Sam Cassell

    Jan 9, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Rashard Lewis, Glen Davis

    Rashard Lewis did not play for the Washington Wizards Sunday night and was not on the bench for the game. But on Monday everyone around the team has denied that it was due to fight between Lewis and assistant coach Sam Cassell that led Lewis to walk away for a night, as reported by CSNWashington.com.…
