  1. Tyson Chandler thinks the Knicks could still win the title

    Feb 1, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler, Norris Cole

    I like to think that if Scarlett Johansson just hung out with me and got to know me — to really experience my sparkling personality and deep blue eyes — I’d have a real shot at her. Along those same lines, Tyson Chandler thinks if things break the right way, the New York Knicks could…

  2. Report: Rockets in lead to trade for Chris Kaman

    Feb 1, 2012, 4:28 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    The Houston Rockets have gone after every center with a heartbeat that has come on the market since the lockout ended, and they may finally be getting one. A pretty good one. The Rockets are in the lead to land Chris Kaman, reports Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated. The Houston Rockets have had extensive discussions…

  3. Baron Davis’ back flares up, did not practice Wednesday

    Feb 1, 2012, 3:58 PM EDT

    baron davis

    Tuesday night, the Knicks didn’t look like they needed a savior. Carmelo Anthony was back, the Knicks were scoring the paint and knocking down threes, they looked like what everyone had kind of expected before the season. Which is good, because the other savior may be a while. Baron Davis sat out practice Wednesday, tweets…

  4. Television ratings show you people like the Clippers. A lot.

    Feb 1, 2012, 3:27 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    You can add the Clippers to the list of teams people are tuning in to watch. The NBA sent out notes to say that ratings are up. So again, what lockout? NBA TV has broadcast 34 games this season and ratings are way up — 74 percent over last year on total views, 78 percent…

  5. Joakim Noah admits expectations of big contract got to him

    Feb 1, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

    Joakim Noah is making a lot of money this year — $12 million. It’s the first year of the extension to his rookie deal he signed last year, meaning he has gone from making what you and I think is a lot of money to making what other NBA players think is a lot of…

  6. Video: Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki go “BIG”

    Feb 1, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    It’s not an all-time favorite, but I am kind of liking the NBA’s new “BIG” advertising campaign. So, here are the two latest ads, featuring Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Durant. Enjoy. You’ll probably see these a lot as commercials during games in the coming weeks.  

  7. This is LeBron James’ best start to a season ever

    Feb 1, 2012, 1:26 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James has been a statistical beast this season. He is averaging 29.2 points per game, 8.3 assists and 7.1 rebounds. He is shooting 55.1 percent, the best of his career, because he’s cut down on his three pointers and long twos and instead is playing more out of the post and closer to the…

  8. Rondo says he will skip All-Star game if not healthy

    Feb 1, 2012, 12:33 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo expects to be back from his wrist injury somewhere around the All-Star break. Thursday night, the starters for that All-Star Game will be announced and in the East Derrick Rose and Dwayne Wade will get that nod (from the fans, you all voted on this). But Rondo is third in the voting and…

  9. Dirk Nowitzki says he plans to play at least two more years

    Feb 1, 2012, 12:07 PM EDT

    Mavericks forward Nowitzki is defended by Spurs forward Blair during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    At age 33, how much longer is Dirk Nowitzki going to play? Well, a couple years at least. We know that for two reasons. One, he has two more years on his contract totaling $42 million and he’s not walking away from that. Because nobody would. The other is that he said so. Nowitzki was…

  10. Tuesday And-1 links: Judge tells Allen Iverson to pay up

    Feb 1, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Here is our daily 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). A judge has reached into Allen Iverson’s bank account to pay a jewelry store where Iverson bought more than $300,000 in bling but never paid…

  11. Rasheed Wallace to the Lakers? That would be interesting.

    Feb 1, 2012, 10:46 AM EDT

    rasheed_wallace

    Fun little note from Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports. If the Lakers don’t sign Kenyon Martin, they could have interest in adding Rasheed Wallace, who contacted the team several weeks ago, a league source said. Wallace retired after the 2009-10 season, but has told friends he’s interested in returning to the NBA. We told you…

  12. Lakers, Clippers, Heat among teams in Kenyon Martin chase

    Feb 1, 2012, 10:08 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    In a few weeks, the Chinese Basketball Association season will come to an end and a few quality free agents — Kenyon Martin, Wilson Chandler and J.R. Smith — will alter the balance of power in the NBA. Martin (who left his team and is stateside but cannot sign until the season ends over there)…

  13. Bynum suggests Lakers need wins or trades may follow

    Feb 1, 2012, 9:36 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum, Byron Mullens

    The next couple weeks are going to tell us a lot about the Lakers — they are 2-7 on the road and are now heading out for two weeks away from Staples Center so the Grammys can take over the building. Talking about the road trip after the Lakers throttling of the Bobcats Tuesday night,…

  14. Magic GM: Dwight Howard’s trade list remains unchanged

    Feb 1, 2012, 9:07 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    There are no Chicago Bulls on the list. No Los Angeles Clippers, no Boston Celtics or Golden State Warriors. While other teams keep trying to fill the Dwight Howard trade rumor void, Howard’s original list has not changed, Orlando GM Otis Smith told the Sun Sentinel. Magic General Manager Otis Smith told the Orlando Sentinel…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: ‘Melo is back, Knicks cruise

    Feb 1, 2012, 8:37 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Tayshaun Prince, Jason Maxiel

    What you missed while getting arrested for attacking people and police with a toy light saber… Knicks 113, Pistons 86: Carmelo Anthony returned, he had 25 efficient points while playing his best game in weeks, and the Knicks cruise to an easy win. Coincidence? Well, kind of. This win was really about the Knicks defense…

  16. Pacers George Hill out indefinitely with chip fracture in ankle

    Feb 1, 2012, 12:58 AM EDT

    George Hill, Darren Collison

    Pacers backup shooting guard George Hill will not travel with the team for an upcoming road trip and is out indefinitely with a chip fracture in his left ankle, the team announced after Tuesday’s game. The injury occurred in the third quarter against the Nets, when Hill went up for a jumper and Nets center…

  17. Deron Williams says he is keeping all his options open

    Jan 31, 2012, 10:00 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    We are a long ways away from Deron Williams having to make his decision about next season. He could opt out of the last year of his deal and become a free agent then leave for Dallas or other destinations. He could become a free agent then re-sign with New Jersey (likely because Dwight Howard…

  18. Kings deny GM Geoff Petrie’s job in danger. Of course.

    Jan 31, 2012, 7:59 PM EDT

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    This is the cycle of things. First comes the report yesterday that the Kings — or at least part of the Kings management — has started to look at potential replacements for general manager Geoff Petrie. Now, comes the routine denial. From co-owner Joe Maloof via the Sacramento Bee. “No, this is not true,” Maloof…

  19. Carmelo returns to Knicks lineup Tuesday night

    Jan 31, 2012, 7:07 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    From the New York Times’ Howard Beck, via Steve Adamak: Report from @bergenadamek at the Garden: Carmelo is back in the lineup tonight vs. Detroit. Anthony’s struggles this season have been well-documented: he is currently behind only LeBron James and Kobe Bryant in usage rate, but he’s shooting just 39.4% from the floor and 30.3% from beyond…

    Jan 31, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    M. Thompson

    According to multiple sources, the Cleveland Cavaliers will start undrafted rookie Mychel Thompson tonight in place of Anthony Parker, who is out with a back injury. Mychel (not Michael) Thompson is the son of Mychal (not Michael or Mychel) Thompson, the former #1 overall pick who won two championships with the Trail Blazers over the…
