    Milwaukee Bucks v Dallas Mavericks

    Brandon Jennings is getting a chance to show more of his all-around game, with Monta Ellis able to pick up the scoring and newly-acquired J.J.

  2. Joakim Noah says Bulls coach Thibodeau ‘doesn’t understand the whole rest thing’

    Mar 3, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    The questions about how hard Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau rides his starters have been asked countless times, and the answers are always the same: That’s how he chooses to do it, the players can handle it, and the results have been mostly successful. That doesn’t mean that they’re going to stop, especially when the…

  3. Michael Jordan chooses between LeBron and Kobe (VIDEO)

    Mar 3, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Jordan talks with Bryant

    The quotes were everywhere a couple of weeks ago, broadcasting to the heavens that Michael Jordan picked Kobe Bryant over LeBron James when asked to choose between two of the game’s best players. As is often the case with these types of things, there’s nuance involved, and it isn’t as easy as simply choosing one…

  4. Metta World Peace says his style of play is aggressive, but not dirty

    Mar 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    It can be extremely frustrating to watching Metta World Peace continually make violent plays that are meant to instigate or agitate his opponents, and then hear him try to explain away his actions afterward. It’s not that World peace is lying or being disingenuous. He truly believes that plays he’s been penalized for — such…

  5. Warriors blow 16-point lead, lose fourth straight to Sixers

    Mar 2, 2013, 11:52 PM EDT

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    The Warriors rode a five-game losing streak into the All-Star break, but as a team, were trying to keep things positive. The streak reached six, before Golden State briefly righted the ship and rattled off three straight wins, but as the schedule toughened, the losses have begun to pile up once again. A 16-point second…

  6. LeBron’s shooting in February was the best by any player in the last 30 years

    Mar 2, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    In case you needed an additional reminder of how awesome LeBron James is, here’s a little something to put what we’re seeing from him this season into historical context. From Marc Stein of ESPN.com: The final tally for LeBron’s ridiculously accurate shooting in the month of February was 139 makes in 217 attempts from the…

    Mar 2, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    When we last heard from Delonte West, he had changed his mind about playing in the D-League, which might be the only way to work himself back on to an NBA roster. Now that 10-day contract season is upon us, and with the playoffs less than two months away, it appears that West is now…

  8. Kevin Durant with the incredibly acrobatic reverse layup against the Nuggets (VIDEO)

    Mar 2, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant has the ball bounce off his shoulder after he scored past the Denver Nuggets in their NBA basketball game in Denver

    This is the rare highlight where the replays from multiple angles really don’t do it justice. Watching the original play at the beginning of this clip from Kevin Durant as it occurred in real time, it doesn’t even seem like making this shot was possible. The force with which Durant flies by the basket wouldn’t…

    Mar 2, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Larry Drew, Josh Smith, Kyle Korver

    PHOENIX — Atlanta Hawks head coach Larry Drew was at a loss as to why his team, which had won four straight and six of its last seven, played so poorly against the Suns and lost 92-87 on Friday in Phoenix. He needed only to take a walk through his postgame locker room to find…

    Tony Parker

    It looked bad when it happened and the word from Marc Spears at Yahoo is not good. Spurs say guard Tony Parker is expected to be out for approximately four weeks with a Grade 2 left ankle sprain. — Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) March 2, 2013 What a Grade 2 sprain means is there is partial…

  12. Magic Johnson offers LeBron James $1 million to participate in slam dunk contest

    Mar 2, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    The irrational love fans have for watching the game’s best player do what he does best is perhaps beginning to get a little out of hand. And the media seems more than happy to be complicit in stoking that fire. LeBron James is not going to enter the dunk contest. Ever. Simply put, he doesn’t…

  13. Ty Lawson hits the game-winner to beat the Thunder (VIDEO)

    Mar 2, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets' Lawson celebrates game winning basket over Oklahoma City Thunder in NBA basketball game in Denver

    It all came down to this. Game tied at 103, Nuggets ball, less than 10 seconds remaining. Ty Lawson gets isolation on the wing against Thabo Sefolosha, who is known as an above-average defender. Sefolosha plays Lawson for the drive, which isn’t a bad idea considering Lawson’s rep as one of the speediest guards in…

  14. Tony Parker suffers ankle sprain, going to be out “a while”

    Mar 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Tony Parker

    That wasn’t pretty. The Spurs have the ability to keep winning when anybody misses time, but this is going to be another whole new level of challenge — Tony Parker sprained his ankle late in the third quarter and had to be helped off the court. He didn’t return. How bad is it? Here’s the…

  15. Heat overcome off night from LeBron to beat Grizzlies for 13th straight win

    Mar 2, 2013, 12:05 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's James dribbles against Memphis Grizzlies' Pondexter in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    One streak was going to come to an end in Miami on Friday, with the Grizzlies having won eight in a row and the Heat riding a 12-game winning streak of their own. It wasn’t surprising that the Heat were the ones that left victorious by pulling away late for a 98-91 victory, the team’s…

  18. Aaron Brooks bought out by Kings, likely to join Rockets

    Mar 1, 2013, 7:29 PM EDT

    Aaron Brooks, Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley

    Kings GM Geoff Petrie was a believer an Aaron Brooks. The Kings had Isaiah Thomas and Tyreke Evans as ball handlers, but Petrie believed in Brooks. Coach Keith Smart saw him play and Brooks fell out of the rotation in Sacramento. You have to earn it to fall out of the rotation in Sacramento. When…

  19. Iguodala says JaVale McGee is too smart for his own good

    Mar 1, 2013, 5:53 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee, Earl Clark

    JaVale McGee is a walking highlight. He is athletically gifted like few in the league and he can make plays that make your jaw drop. He can have just monster nights. Or, he can make a mental blunder that is a reason he is a regular on Shaqtin’ a Fool. There have been a lot…

  20. Greg Monroe not expecting Pistons contract extension, thinking 2014 free agency

    Mar 1, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe

    This summer the draft class of 2010 is eligible for contract extensions — teams with a star they want to lock up can do what the Thunder did with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, what the Clippers did with Blake Griffin, and so on. Give your franchise player the max. So who from that draft…
