    chris bosh all-star hall of fame

    Miami Heat center Chris Bosh was selected to the All-Star team as a reserve by the coaches, marking the eighth time he’s received the honor in his 10 NBA seasons. That, along with the championship ring he earned a season ago might mean he’s already assured himself a spot in the Basketball Hall of Fame.…

    Jan 26, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith is a free agent this summer. He will be one of the biggest names out there — 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds a game, a borderline All-Star level player, a guy with the athleticism and potential to be one of the best bigs in the game. If you’re looking for a big who…

    Marv Albert called the nationally televised broadcast between the Knicks and the Celtics in Boston on Thursday, and believes there may have been some funny business going on in terms of the sound he heard from inside the arena while the game was in progress.

    Jan 26, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    The Lakers momentarily stopped the bleeding on Friday, playing smart and together in an easy 102-84 home victory over a decent Utah Jazz squad. The team will need a lot more performances like that one just to sneak into the playoffs this season, and the way the rest of the year plays out will have…

    Jan 26, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Reggie Evans, Zach Randolph

    The Grizzlies took care of the Nets on Friday, and did so swiftly and easily. The game was over by halftime, when Memphis had built a 67-44 lead over a Brooklyn team that simply didn’t have it in them to compete on this night. Just because the Nets had packed it in late in the…

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Bulls have done an excellent job remaining more than relevant with Derrick Rose sidelined for the entire season to this point, as he works his way back from a knee injury. Chicago is just a half-game behind the Nets for third in the East, a game and a half behind a Knicks team the…

    Jan 26, 2013, 12:44 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    The Celtics suffered one of their most painful losses of the season on Friday, and it’s tough to see where the team goes from here. Boston led by 27 points in the first half in Atlanta, only to give all of it back and then some before ultimately losing 123-111 to the Hawks in double-overtime.…

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Plenty of teams in the NBA offer an opportunity each home game for a fan to hit a shot from half-court to win a ridiculous prize. Some teams, like the Lakers, offer a progressive jackpot of sorts, with the prize increasing throughout the season with each game that goes by without someone draining the improbable…

    Jan 25, 2013, 8:37 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Dallas Mavericks

    The Dallas Mavericks — an organization with about the most player-friendly reputation there is in the Association — had Delonte West on their team last season and in camp this past fall. They suspended him twice in camp and eventually let him walk. West is now in the D-League, playing for the Texas Legends, the…

    Ricky Rubio, Deron Williams

    Ricky Rubio was benched during the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s loss to the Nets, in favor of J.J.

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    If you learned one thing from the time the Maloof family tried to move the Kings to Anaheim it should have been this — Sacramento fans, led by mayor Kevin Johnson, will not give up without a fight. While the Maloof family has reached an agreement to Sacramento Kings to a group headed by hedge…

  15. Raptors’ Bargnani, Valanciunas could return in couple weeks

    Jan 25, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Denver Nuggets

    Raptors fans, you could be getting Andreas Bargnani back soon. You feel good about that? Toronto was 4-17 when he played and 12-10 since he went down. It’s not hard to guess how Toronto fans feel about him and his return. Nonetheless, Bargnani is getting closer to a return from the elbow injury that has…

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    The Buss family was once described to me as a Shakespearian drama — the strong patriarch and beloved king holds the family and kingdom together, but someday the fight for power among his children will potentially destroy everything their father built. Right now, Jerry Buss still owns the Lakers. His son Jim runs the basketball…

    Bucks general manager John Hammond just got a three-year contract extension. He’s also the guy that brought together the Brandon Jennings/Monta Ellis backcourt. So, you expect them to break it up at the deadline? In talking with Bucks.com, Hammond said that is not the plan. “We like our team, we really like Brandon and Monta.…

    Dwight Howard

    In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I sit down to discuss the Thursday night TNT matchups, where the Knicks took care of the Celtics, and the Suns surprised a Clippers team playing without Chris Paul.

    Delonte West couldn’t land an NBA gig this season — despite giving them solid guard play and 9.6 points a game last season the Mavericks let him go and nobody has picked him up. So to prove his worth, we told you he put his name in the D-League player pool. And who grabbed him?…
