    Raptors head coach Casey directs his team against the Warriors during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    As the words were coming out of his mouth, Toronto coach Dwane Casey knew he was going to get fined, and he was just too angry to care after his team lost 93-92 to Atlanta. “I’m tired of this,” Casey said. “I’m tired of losing games because of missed calls at the end of the…

    LeBron James

    Do you want to see LeBron James in the dunk contest so badly you would donate your own money to see it? A guy named Chris Thomas does and he wants you to join him. He has gone on GoFundMe.com — an online fundraising website where people raise money for medical care, funerals, local youth…

    Gregg Popovich has earned the spot as head coach of the Western Conference All-Stars, thanks to the Spurs’ win over the Bobcats on Wednesday.

  5. Brandon Roy has another knee setback, still hopes to play this season

    Jan 31, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Ugh. Brandon Roy’s attempted comeback from knee problems with the Minnesota Timberwolves lasted all of five games before he needed another knee surgery. Recovery from said surgery has not gone quickly or smoothly but the former All-Star guard isn’t ready to give up on his dream of returning to the NBA. Then today comes this…

    Jan 31, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    Rudy Gay is on his way to Toronto. The deal is done. But he will not report to the team until Friday afternoon and that means he will not play Friday night when the Raptors host the Los Angeles Clippers, tweets Eric Koreen of the National Post. The Raptors next game is Sunday against the…

    Jan 31, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    Let’s get this out of the way first — this is not a setback. I know people can get skittish when you talk Andrew Bynum and knees, but things are still on track. This was planned, it was the next step in the process and the timeline for Bynum to finally make his debut with…

  8. Tim Duncan says he expects to return Saturday

    Jan 31, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    He could have probably gone Wednesday night… but the Spurs were playing the Bobcats. And the Spurs are a cautious bunch with their stars. But Tim Duncan said he will return to the lineup for the Spurs Saturday when the Wizards come to town, according to Spurs.com. Duncan has missed four games resting a sore…

  9. Rodman’s children’s book is available now. He’s a great role model.

    Jan 31, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony - Red Carpet

    As a parent who has had to suffer through too many of them, let me say most celebrity children’s books suck. There are exceptions — Josie Bissett’s “Tickle Monster” is one of my girls’ favorites — but by and large you can skip the genre. But can you skip anything Dennis Rodman does? His children’s…

  10. Is Reggie Evans right? Should Heat’s title have asterisk?

    Jan 31, 2013, 11:35 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    It’s easy to dismiss Reggie Evans because he’s Reggie Evans. NBA “tough guy” who’s built like a tank but has earned fines for flopping. A guy who comes up on every list when you talk about dirtiest players in the league. He doesn’t exactly have the NBA’s most impressive resume. But his comments about the…

    New York Knicks' forward Carmelo Anthony drives to the basket between Orlando Magic defenders in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The Knicks are a charter member of the NBA, a franchise founded in 1946 that has always played in Madison Square Garden and always been at the heart of New York Basketball. When you set a Knicks franchise record, you are overcoming some real history. Which is what Carmelo Anthony did Wednesday in the Knicks…

  12. LeBron ticked he, Heat will not get to watch Super Bowl

    Jan 31, 2013, 10:12 AM EDT

    LeBron James Football

    The NBA isn’t stupid — they don’t schedule any games directly up against the Super Bowl. But it’s close enough this year that LeBron James and his Miami Heat teammates are not going to get to see the San Francisco 49ers make Ray Lewis cry and beat the Baltimore Ravens. (Well, Ray will cry either…

    Sacramento Kings v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking you may have finally found the perfect job… Suns 92, Lakers 86: Ouch.

    Jan 31, 2013, 4:59 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant

    PHOENIX — Dwight Howard re-aggravated the injury to his right shoulder in Phoenix on Wednesday night, and it didn’t look to be anything minor either on the court or in the locker room afterward. While there was no speculation by anyone that Howard would be forced to miss time, it was clear that he was…

    Orlando Magic v Brooklyn Nets

    Already in a rebuilding year where they have lost seven straight and 17 of their last 19 games, what else could go wrong for the Orlando Magic?

  18. Three Stars of the Night: Be Easy

    Jan 31, 2013, 2:25 AM EDT

    beasley_8503_1

    This is catnip for the Lakers haters out there. The Lakers had all this positive momentum, Kobe Bryant was a new man, and all they had to do was keep it going against Phoenix. Easy, right? But instead, in what has to feel like rock bottom, the Lakers were put away by Michael Beasley. Yes,…
