    Feb 6, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    Baron Davis, Jason Richardson, Corey Maggette

    Baron Davis is no exactly a guy who has been battling injuries for years (and doesn’t have the best reputation on rehab efforts). Now he’s dealing with a bulging disc in his back, the kind of injury that can mean a slow recovery with setbacks in the best of situations. So, maybe we shouldn’t be…

    Miami Heat's James prepares to make a shot against Milwaukee Bucks during their NBA game in Milwaukee

    Miami moves back into the top spot — but the Clippers have now cracked the top three, which had been the domain of the Heat, Bulls and Thunder for a while. Oh, and the Bobcats still suck. 1. Heat (18-6, last week ranked No. 2). They’ve had a few uninspired wins (like Sunday against the…

    Feb 6, 2012, 12:08 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Jeremy Lin is just another guy going from Harvard to Manhattan to make it big. Okay, his path is a little different. Lin has gone from the star of the often-overlooked Harvard basketball team to the starting point guard of the often-overanalyzed New York Knicks. Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said Lin would get the start…

    Heats' Bosh moves around Raptors' Davis during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Chris Bosh is going to make the All-Star team. The coaches (who choose the reserves) will put him on the squad, no question. He’s one of the best forwards in the game and deserves to be in Orlando at the end of the month for the big showcase. But you the fans didn’t vote him…

    Feb 5, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    For three straight games, Kevin Garnett has knocked down a three point shot. Like he’s Ray Allen or something. He’s always had a midrange shot but the deep ball is not his game, he’s no stretch four. But he’s gotten a little Brian Scalabrine in him the last week. Not that you should ask him…
