  1. Brook Lopez out a while longer as CT scan reveals another “small crack”

    Mar 25, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Brook Lopez

    On the list of guys who you should feel bad for regarding this season, Brook Lopez has to be one of the bigger candidates. Imagine if your job kept working with you to get you back at work from an injury, but you knew the only reason they were is that they want to use…

  2. Arron Afflalo suspended for elbow to head of Gordon Hayward

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:35 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo

    If you saw the play — or even watched the video above — you knew this was coming. Denver’s Arron Afflalo has been suspended one game for throwing an elbow to the head of Utah’s Gordon Hayward during the third quarter of the Jazz’s win Friday night. Afflalo was ejected from that game and will…

  3. LeBron James and a story of humanity you should probably read

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:30 AM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    There are going to be comments below and tweets about this story that are going to make you question whether we shouldn’t just abandon society and live as separate lives as we can, because we’re truly vile. As an incredibly funny man once said, “We’re a virus with shoes.” But the story needs to be…

  4. Video: J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert go double-alley-oop on Detroit

    Mar 25, 2012, 9:35 AM EST

    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

    The Knicks are feeling it right now. Undefeated since giving Mike D’Antoni the boot and riding the scapegoat momentum express, they won again Saturday over Detroit in a laugher. How much of a laugher was it? Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith pulled off something which is the kind of thing you can only shake your…

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    The Bulls won a game over Toronto 102-101 that they probably should have lost by all accounts, not only for the fact that the Raptors outplayed them for most of the game and had about 700 things go against them down the stretch, but mostly because the Bulls were without two of their best players…

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett reacts during their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers as the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan looks on in Los Angeles

    It’s been a really interesting season in the legacy of Kevin Garnett. Boston folks can’t stop talking about how much production he’s giving teams, how well he’s playing, how he’s been the best player on the team. The rest of us keep noticing that while his production is there and he’s still as crafty a…

  7. Bulls owner was willing to go into luxury tax to get Pau Gasol… generous bajillionaire he is

    Mar 24, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    So that Pau-Gasol-to-Chicago rumor before the dealing fell apart pretty quick because, to be honest, the idea of anyone saying “Heck yeah, we want Carlos Boozer!” right now is like the joke in a trailer for one of those teen romcoms. You know it’s coming and though it is technically humorous, it’s not actually funny.…

  8. It’s OK if there’s no mania behind Jimmer

    Mar 24, 2012, 1:47 PM EST

    Jimmer Fredette , Kurt Thomas, Nolan Smith

    “The first time he didn’t play [on Feb. 2 against Portland], people were calling the paper and pitching their theories,” said Jason Jones, the Kings’ beat writer for The Sacramento Bee. “People don’t want to believe that he might not be ready to play. They want to believe Keith has it in for him.” The…

  9. Video: Kevin Durant, Kevin Love put on show in OKC

    Mar 24, 2012, 12:44 PM EST

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    In case you missed one of the most entertaining games of the year last night, we bring you some highlights from the Minnesota Timberwolves at Oklahoma City Thunder. Like above, when at the end of regulation Kevin Durant and Kevin Love traded threes. Below, watch Durant send the game into double overtime, where the Thunder…

  10. Mickael Pietrus injured after hard fall, released from hospital

    Mar 24, 2012, 12:15 PM EST

    Mickael Pietrus

    UPDATE March 24, 12:15 pm: This has to be taken as good news — Pietrus stayed behind the team and spent the night in Philadelphia, but not in the hospital. He now has been cleared to return to Boston, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Which is very good news. He may miss a game…

  11. Chris Kaman sticks with Hornets, which is fine. For now.

    Mar 24, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Chris Kaman, Nene

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein:   Players waived by 11:59 PM ET tonight eligible for playoffs w/another team, but ESPN sources say NOH & Chris Kaman still NOT talking buyout — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) March 23, 2012 So… real quick. Taking on the rest of the year for Kaman isn’t bad. He still makes plays (he blocked…

  12. Report: Wait, Jason Smith actually killed the Chris Paul Lakers trade? Pack it in, civilization ends here.

    Mar 24, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Chris Paul

    Yes, we’re still talking about this. Forgive me, I’m just as tired of it as you are. But for the unrighteously indignant… So one more time with feeling, the Lakers, Rockets, and Hornets had agreed on a trade last December. Chris Paul goes to the Lakers, Pau Gasol goes to the Rockets and magically solves…

  13. Doc Rivers says Celtics want Kevin Garnett back next season

    Mar 23, 2012, 8:48 PM EST

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett reacts during their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers as the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan looks on in Los Angeles

    The question is not want. As always the question is money. But know that the Celtics would like to have Kevin Garnett back next season, in large part because he has played better than expected this season. His contract is up at the end of this year, he is a free agent. Still, some in…

  14. Ray Allen scratched from Celtics/76ers due to ankle sprain

    Mar 23, 2012, 7:41 PM EST

    Ray Allen, Jeff Teague, Tracy McGrady

    Friday is the biggest game of the regular season for the Celtics — well, maybe not their fans, they want to beat the Lakers more than anything — if they beat the 76ers they take over first place in the Atlantic Division. Which means a jump from the seven seed (Miami in the first round…

  15. Mike Brown relents to reason, will start Ramon Sessions

    Mar 23, 2012, 5:46 PM EST

    Ramon Sessions

    It didn’t take a scout’s eye the last few games to realize that when Ramon Sessions was on the floor, the Lakers offense was much, much better. We’ve covered all this before — with Sessions on the floor the Lakers offense has been as good as any in the league. That situation led to calls…

  16. Hornets’ Jason Smith suspended two games for hit on Griffin

    Mar 23, 2012, 4:40 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Vinny Del Negro

    We all knew a suspension was coming for that hit, the question was for how long? Jason Smith will be suspended for two games by the league for his hockey check of Blake Griffin during the Hornets victory over the Clippers Thursday night, the league has announced. He will miss a game Sunday against the…

  17. Video: Timberwolves karaoke “sings” Britney Spears

    Mar 23, 2012, 4:26 PM EST

    Nikola Pekovic

    Got to hand it to the Timberwolves video team, who have pulled off some good stuff this year. Their latest is to get some suckers players to “sing” the Britney Spears classic “Hit me baby one more time.” And by the way, I use the word “classic” very loosely here. Michael Beasley sings like he…

  18. Spurs sign Boris Diaw for rest of season

    Mar 23, 2012, 3:49 PM EST

    Boris Diaw

    We told you yesterday that the Spurs were the frontrunners to land the services of Boris Diaw — because everybody is clamoring for guys the Bobcats waive — and now that has become a reality. San Antonio has reached a deal with Diaw for the rest of this season, reports Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo. In…

  19. Winderman: Wade, Heat, could no longer keep silent on Trayvon Martin

    Mar 23, 2012, 2:55 PM EST

    Miami Heat hoodie photo

    Civic activism tends to be muted in the NBA to almost the same degree as political activism. As Michael Jordan previously and famously noted during his playing days, sneaker consumers come in all shapes, sizes, colors and political affiliations. But to Dwyane Wade, when civic activism turned to parental activism, he no longer could remain…

  20. Wade posts picture of himself in hoodie in support of Trayvon Martin

    wadehoodie

    The photo you see to the right is from Dwyane Wade’s Facebook page, a picture of him in a hoodie in support of the Trayvon Martin case. That shooting in Florida has sparked national debate and interest. Martin, a black 17-year-old man, was unarmed when he was shot and killed in a confrontation with neighborhood…
