  1. Dwyane Wade returned to Heat lineup Tuesday

    Jan 10, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    In the balancing act of how patient the Miami Heat want to be with Dwyane Wade versus the need to have him on the court, the scales have tipped in the other direction. Wade was back in the starting lineup for the Heat against the Golden State Warriors Tuesday night, reports our own Ira Winderman…

  2. Greg Ostertag On NBA Comeback: I Just Want To Play

    Jan 10, 2012, 10:12 PM EDT

    Greg Ostertag

    RENO, Nev. — Greg Ostertag was the first big-name veteran to sign with the NBA Development League when he decided to embark on a comeback with the Texas Legends a few weeks ago. The longtime Utah Jazz center wasn’t impressive in his initial appearances, but the consensus was that as long as he was able…

  3. Video: Still not buying Kevin Love as league’s best four

    Jan 10, 2012, 9:17 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    I like Kevin Love‘s attitude — he thinks he is the best four in the NBA and you want a star player to think that. Although, do you want him to say it? CSN New England’s Donny Marshall says no — and neither he nor I think Love is the best four in the league,…

  4. Jimmer Fredette gets first start Tuesday in Philadelphia

    Jan 10, 2012, 7:45 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette , Kurt Thomas, Nolan Smith

    Jimmer fever has finally reached the starting lineup. Jimmer Fredette got his first start with the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, due to Marcus Thornton suffering a bruised thigh. He had been averaging 24 minutes a game off the bench but played almost the entire first quarter of this one. Fredette has shown potential but is…

  5. Mark Cuban will be on your television during Super Bowl

    Obama Welcomes NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks To White House

    Are there going to be any NBA players on your television during the Super Bowl? Well, LeBron James will not be on the sidelines (the Heat play at home that day). Maybe he or Kobe Bryant show up in an ad, maybe not. But there will be one NBA owner — Mark Cuban. Selling Skechers.…

  6. Report: Team USA sets 19 players for preliminary Olympic roster

    Jan 10, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    The USA will send 12 men to London this summer to suit up and defend America’s gold medal from the last Olympic games. And that dozen will come from these 19 guys, according Chris Sheridan at SheridanHoops.com who broke the story of the preliminary roster. We’ve broken them out by position (they are alphabetical in their…

  7. Don’t tell anyone, but Andrea Bargnani is playing well

    Jan 10, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Raptors Bargnani reacts to a missed basket against the Nets during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    It’s seems weird to write this but… Andrea Bargnani is playing really well this year. Raptors blogs are noticing. Everyone watching them is noticing. He’s shooting better (52.7 percent overall and 37 percent from three), scoring more (22.8 per game) while taking fewer shots, rebounding more, turning the ball over less and has an All-Star…

  8. Miami is not better without Dwyane Wade. Stop it.

    Jan 10, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade has sat out three games with a sore foot. The Miami Heat have won those three games. LeBron James has looked like the LeBron of the Cleveland era the past couple of games because he has to take on much more of the offense. So of course, some people looking to stir the…

  9. Kobe not having experimental procedure on wrist after all

    Jan 10, 2012, 2:37 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant can’t go to Germany right now, and Germany is not coming to Los Angeles. Kobe wanted to but is not going to have the experimental procedure done on his wrist that he had done on his knee this summer, according to the Los Angeles Times. Of greatest importance, the German doctor whom Bryant…

  10. 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”…

  11. 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.…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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,…

  18. 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…

    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…

  20. 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…
