  1. Michael Jordan is giving top golf pros advice

    Mar 12, 2013, 4:42 PM EDT

    Quail Hollow Championship- Pro Am

    When you’re Michael Jordan you get to play rounds of golf with Tiger Woods, Luke Donald, Ernie Ells and pretty much anyone else you want to. Because you’re Michael Jordan. And he talks to them. About winning. And golf. Over at Golf World Tim Rosaforte got some of golf’s biggest names talk about it, and…

  2. Derrick Rose has no return date, says he just needs to feel “normal”

    Mar 12, 2013, 3:36 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Some people want there to be a conspiracy — Derrick Rose isn’t playing yet for the Bulls because he’s mad at management about the roster, or it’s adidas, or he’s in Rome voting on the new pope. Well, we can rule out the last one for sure because Rose was in Sacramento with the Bulls…

  3. Knicks may make roster move but Rasheed Wallace is safe

    Mar 12, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace

    Rasheed Wallace has played 20 games for the Knicks this season and after foot surgery is not likely going to make it back with the team this season. The Knicks are toying with the idea of adding some depth to their banged-up roster as they enter the final stretch of the season, but with a…

  4. Kobe Bryant talks Lakers drama, Howard, MVP race

    Mar 12, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard hugs Kobe Bryant after they defeated the Chicago Bulls during their NBA game in Los Angeles

    Kobe Bryant was on the Dan Patrick Show Tuesday and it sounded at points like a cheesy corporate on leadership styles, but then when it comes to advice to Dwight Howard heading into Orlando it is “go kill ’em.” Aside that Kobe talks Derrick Rose, retirement, and yoga. Kobe’s not a yoga guy.

  5. Dennis Rodman heads to Vatican, wants to meet with new pope

    Mar 12, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    Dennis Rodman, George Stephanopoulos

    Dennis Rodman, international ambassador? Apparently, that’s how he pictures himself. Fresh off a trip to North Korea — where he looked the fool upon his return singing the praises of Kim Jung Un to anyone who would listen — he now plans to go to the Vatican and meet with the new Pope. Once they…

  6. After everything else, Pistons had to take cold shower after loss to Jazz

    Mar 12, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Brandon Knight, Andre Drummond

    I’m not sure what the Pistons players did in their past lives to deserve this karma, but it must have been something. Not only have they lost six in a row, not only is star rookie Andre Drummond still out, not only did Brandon Knight get dunked on then sprained his ankle and will be…

  7. Dwight Howard returns to Orlando, which will be fine without him

    Mar 12, 2013, 12:47 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    Tuesday night will be cathartic for some Magic fans — Dwight Howard returns to Orlando and they will get to lustily boo the guy who left them. The guy they feel screwed them and the franchise over. Magic fans can sing “Forget You” at the top of their lungs. They can boo the Lakers as…

  8. Andre Iguodala hasn’t decided about picking up option for next season

    Mar 12, 2013, 11:48 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Jeff Adrien, Wilson Chandler, Jeffery Taylor

    At the end of this season, Andre Iguodala can walk away from the Nuggets. He has an early termination option, he can get out of his deal and become a free agent. He could re-sign a longer deal with the Nuggets. Or he could stay put for another season and make a cool $16.2 million…

  9. Russell Westbrook tried to draw foul on halfcourt shot mid-game (VIDEO)

    Mar 12, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Charlotte Bobcats

    Hey Russell Westbrook, you realize you’re pretty much never going to get that call, right? He tried. Westbrook was coming up the court with just under 2:30 left in the second quarter and Gary Neal steps up to apply some early pressure. And Westbrook — who was in a gunner mode for long stretches of…

  10. ‘Melo says nobody can tell him what is up with his knee

    Mar 12, 2013, 10:29 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony grimaces as he leaves the court after injuring himself when falling at midcourt during the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers

    After missing three games Carmelo Anthony was back in the Knicks lineup Monday night against Golden State and he looked… slow. Part of it was just conditioning and needing to get his legs back. He had 14 points (on 4-of-15 shooting) and 10 boards on what was a generally terrible night for any player in…

  11. Kawhi Leonard with steal, move, slam over Perkins (VIDEO)

    Mar 12, 2013, 9:54 AM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    As much as one play can, this play pretty much sums up why the Spurs beat the Thunder Thursday night. There was the defense — from the start of the second quarter on the Thunder had 12 turnovers, like this steal by Kawhi Leonard, and shot just 39.3 percent. There was the energy — the Spurs…

  12. JaVale McGee dunks on Hamed Haddadi, bows to him afterward (VIDEO)

    Mar 12, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee, Hasheem Thabeet

    One never knows exactly what goes through the mind of JaVale McGee on the court, but whatever it is, it makes for some entertaining highlights. This ridiculous one-handed finish off of the alley-oop pass from Corey Brewer was Clipper-like in both the amount of hangtime, as well as the complete posterization of his defender, Hamed…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Knicks take night off (except they had a game)

    Mar 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were hacking Donkey Kong to make Pauline the hero… Spurs 105, Thunder 93: The Spurs depth was too much for the Thunder — San Antonio made its big runs when it was bench-on-bench (mostly). Part of that was that the Thunder…

  14. Three Stars of the Night: Unlikely heroes edition

    Mar 12, 2013, 2:44 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs Stephen Jackson, Tim Duncan, and Tiago Splitter of Brazil celebrate after they defeated the Los Angeles Lakers during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Most nights, we have the game’s biggest stars lighting up the scoreboard while leading their teams to victory. That wasn’t the case on Monday, as the leading scorers on the winning side of things were largely unheralded players. Third Star: Kosta Koufos (Game-high and career-high 22 points, 10 rebounds in win over Suns) Koufos isn’t…

  15. Knicks J.R. Smith ejected for foul on Harrison Barnes (VIDEO)

    Mar 12, 2013, 1:31 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Smith walks off the floor after missing a shot in their NBA basketball game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in New York

    On the scale of Flagrant II fouls, J.R. Smith‘s on Harrison Barnes Monday was not as bad as many. But Joey Crawford and the referee corp saw the replay above and decided the foul was “unnecessary and excessive” — the threshold that has to be met for the Flagrant II and automatic ejection. As Mike…

  16. Spurs sure look like contenders in 12-point win over Thunder

    Mar 12, 2013, 12:21 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    There are two, slightly contradictory take aways from this game: 1) There are a lot of people that watched the Spurs look great in the regular season the last couple years but then look very beatable in the playoffs who think this Spurs team is like those. But there is a key difference — this…

  17. Ty Lawson finds Kenneth Faried for the alley-oop from beyond halfcourt (VIDEO)

    Mar 11, 2013, 11:53 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge 2013

    PHOENIX — The game between the Suns and the Nuggets has largely been sloppy and played without much intensity, and essentially devoid of any highlights. It’s partly due to Phoenix throwing out seemingly random lineups during the team’s player development phase it’s going through, and partly due to Denver being mentally checked out to start…

  18. Brandon Knight’s week gets worse, leaves game against Jazz with ankle sprain

    Mar 11, 2013, 10:03 PM EDT

    Brandon Knight, Tyson Chandler, Jason Kidd

    Brandon Knight seems like a nice enough guy, but perhaps that wasn’t the case in a previous life. It’s been a rough season for Knight, with Sunday night’s obliteration at the hands of DeAndre Jordan leading the list of events that haven’t exactly gone his way. Players will always take embarrassment over injury, however, so…

  19. Lou Amundson says after Bulls deal ends he’s a Hornet

    Mar 11, 2013, 8:33 PM EDT

    Lou Amundson

    Those 10-day contracts a bunch of teams are handing out are technically two-way streets — not only is the team seeing if the player is a fit for them, the player is checking out the team as well. Except that usually the player doesn’t really have another option and are willing to latch on regardless…

  20. Monday And-1 links: Should we be praising Brandon Knight for trying to make a play on DeAndre Jordan?

    Mar 11, 2013, 7:12 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Brandon Knight

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Brandon Knight became a trending joke on twitter after the Clippers DeAndre Jordan…
