    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    You know what will help the Blazers get their feet under them? This. OK, so that probably wont’ help them get their feet under them. There’s been a lot of talk about Marcus Camby potentially being unhappy in the Blazers’ locker room. This probably will not help the estimation of where he’s at mentally. That’s…

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the first half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    J.R Smith can get in trouble anywhere, not just China. Thursday J.R. Smith tweeted a picture of a scantily clad woman — model Tahiry Jose in a thong, with Smith commenting on the view of her backside — from his hotel room in Milwaukee. He took it down not long after, but that’s just not now…

  3. LeBron, Wade talk about passing off the game-winning shot

    Mar 10, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    One week ago against the Jazz, LeBron James drove for a potential game-winning shot and when two defenders came to him he passed off to Udonis Haslem, who missed the shot. NBA fans screamed, “Why didn’t he take that shot? Why is he afraid of the big moment?” On Wednesday night in the final minute…

  4. The crazy schedule could really mess with playoff seeding

    Mar 10, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Our own Ira Winderman writing at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel points out that changes this week to remove divisional opponent record from tie-breaker procedures for playoff seeding don’t go far enough. Because the imbalanced schedule impacts record as well. But if the Board wanted to carry out the process to its natural conclusion in the…

  5. Andrea Bargnani might be back this weekend. Maybe not. But could be. Theoretically.

    Mar 10, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors Andrea Bargnani reacts after hitting a shot during their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    Funny cycle. Team is stingy and non-committal with information regarding updates on player’s return from injury. Fans get anxious, rail on writer for not providing updates on player they are interested in regarding return from injury. Writer responds by asking team about player’s return from injury. Team is stingy and non-committal with information regarding updates…

    Mar 10, 2012, 2:19 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio shoots a free throw during their NBA game against Los Angeles Clippers

    Both Chris Mannix of SI.com and Jerry Zgoda of the Star-Tribune report that Ricky Rubio suffered a torn ACL as previously indicated by Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski during the Wolves’ loss to the Lakers last night. Well, hell. The news is devastating for the Timberwolves and basketball fans, as Rubio’s play had electrified the league and…

  7. The fall of the Portland Trail Blazers

    Mar 10, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Every person is going to have their individual sticking point. The one thing that they’ll point to, keep coming back to. For most, it will be Brandon. If Brandon Roy’s knees had held up, if he he had meniscus left in just one of his knees, it would have been different. Others will go to…

  8. Jason Terry says “it’s time for a change” when it comes to the Mavs

    Mar 10, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Less than a day after a loss to the Suns on national television in which he was angry over being benched late, Jason Terry was outspoken again Friday night. This time he didn’t mince words about the state of the Mavericks after a loss to the Kings. I say again, the Kings. (A game, I…

  9. No surprise, the Wizards are open for firesale business. Everything but Wall must go.

    Mar 10, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    That the Wizards are terrible should not surprise you. A terrible team looking to change its personnel should not surprise you. But when any team declares itself completely open for business outside of one player, yeah, that’s worth at least a look. From the Washington Post’s Michael Lee:   Source just told me #wizards have…

  10. Ricky Rubio may have torn ACL, would be done for season

    Mar 10, 2012, 12:56 AM EDT

    Rick Rubio

    It looked like just two knees colliding when it happened, but it appears something much more serious may have happened to Timberwolves rookie Ricky Rubio. With 16.4 seconds left in the game against the Lakers Friday night — and the Timberwolves up one —Rubio ran over to trap Kobe Bryant when the Lakers’ closer got…

  11. Video: Thunder with three blocks and a dunk

    Mar 9, 2012, 10:33 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka, Russell Westbrook

    There are teams that execute better than the Oklahoma City Thunder, but there are none as athletic and long — and that leads to fun highlights. Like this one against the Cavaliers. Three Serge Ibaka blocks, one Kevin Durant block and a Russell Westbrook and James Harden fast break. It’s the most fun you’re going…

  12. Lakers offensive system not the problem, it’s the shooters

    Mar 9, 2012, 9:06 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers are frustrated. They are talking about wanting to run more triangle sets and less of Mike Brown’s east-to-west motion offense. I’ve said it’s less about the offense than the execution — the Lakers need to be an inside-out team, but are you when Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol combined take just 1.7 more…

  13. Winderman: The “Take my Turkoglu, please” trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu

    The shame of the NBA trading deadline is that it does not follow the post-Christmas “Boxing Day” tradition of Canada and other countries, where you spend the day after sorting out the junk from the actual gifts. In the NBA, it remains an all-in-one process, which is why, in this space over the past few…

  14. Orlando’s Turkoglu suspended one game for touching referee

    Hedo Turkoglue

    We told you earlier today we expected this to come down, now it is official. Orlando forward Hedo Turkoglu has been suspended one game for making contact with an official, the league has announced. He will sit Sunday when the Magic take on the Pacers. During Thursday night’s game against the Bulls, Turkoglu disagreed with…

  15. The time Robert Parish refused to put up with Michael Jordan

    Mar 9, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    robert parish Bulls

    There is a fantastic story up at ESPNBoston.com looking at the end of the first “Big Three” in Boston — Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish. McHale and Bird finished their careers as Celtics, but people often forget that Parrish spent two years in Charlotte then went on to the 1996-97 Chicago Bulls —…

  16. Boston might trade one of “Big Three” but price is steep

    Mar 9, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Danny Ainge likes to tell the story about how when he was a Celtic Red Auerbach said he could have traded Boston’s legendary “big three” of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish at the end of their careers but didn’t — and that Ainge wouldn’t make the mistake. Ainge felt holding on to them…

  17. Wizards might trade you McGee… if you take Blatche, too

    Mar 9, 2012, 3:38 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche, JaVale McGee

    UPDATE 7:38 PM: It’s not just McGee you can have if you take on Blatche, Michael Lee of the Washington Post tweets. Source just told me wizards have informed teams they can have any player except John Wall if they are willing to take Andray Blatche That is how bad the Wizards want Blatche out…

    Mar 9, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    Dwight Howard was joking around before his team went out and beat the Bulls Thursday night and gave his scouting report on the team — while doing an imitation of Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley. Watch this or we’ll just give you another Dwight Howard trade rumor. Don’t make us do that. We feel like…

    Mar 9, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Julian Demalleville

    Don’t you go sleeping on Weber State — they have sent eight guys to the NBA, most recently Lance Allred and Eddie Gill. And they have a lottery-level prospect this year in point guard Damian Lillard. However, those of you who like to do your NBA draft scouting during the NCAA Tournament are out of…

  20. Jason Terry not happy with coach’s decision to bench him late in loss to Suns

    Mar 9, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    After the Mavericks had allowed an 11-point third quarter lead to become an 11-point fourth quarter deficit late Thursday night in Phoenix, they were able to gather themselves and make one final push in the game’s final three minutes. Dallas had fought back to within two, and had possession of the ball with 15.4 seconds…
