    Feb 11, 2013, 12:37 PM EDT

    Anderson Varejao

    If he had not needed surgery, Anderson Varejao would be packing his bags for Houston and the All-Star Game right now. Nobody was noticing because nobody was watching Cavaliers games before Kyrie Irving got back, but Varejao was averaging better than 14 points and 14 rebounds a game with a PER of 21.8. But what…

  2. Noah’s foot issues could limit or keep him out of All-Star Game

    Feb 11, 2013, 12:03 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Joakim Noah earned his way into the All-Star Game — he’s scoring 11.2 points and grabbing 11.9 rebounds a game, but it’s really his role as high-energy anchor of the Bulls defense that got him a spot on the roster. But Noah has missed three games recently as he battles through plantar fasciitis in his…

    Feb 11, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Al Jefferson

    There are a lot of sellers on the trade market right now — Atlanta, Orlando, Utah — but it looks more and more like the Phoenix Suns might be trying to be buyers. First there were the reports the Suns were going after Iman Shumpert of the Knicks (that’s not likely to happen) and now…

    Lacoste/GQ Super Bowl Party

    Rapper Lil Wayne hasn’t given up on the Lakers (which may be more than we can say for Dwight Howard, but that’s another post). Wayne wasn’t at the Grammys Sunday, he was in Miami for the start of the Lakers game against the Heat Sunday. But he wasn’t there at the end of the game.…

  6. Report: Knicks trading Shumpert to Phoenix “unlikely”

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:11 AM EDT

    Iman Shumpert

    Phoenix is rebuilding and they want to acquire young assets in that process. Guys like, say, Iman Shumpert of the New York Knicks. Which is why a proposed trade that sent Shumpert to the Suns and Jared Dudley or some other pieces to the Knicks made sense for Phoenix. Just not as much for New…

    Feb 11, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    PHOENIX — The Suns are a team in complete disarray at this point in the season, and while the Thunder are clearly one of the league’s best, the disparity was magnified after the teams met for the second time in three days on Sunday. While game two was a lower scoring affair than the first…

  10. Report: Nets going hard after trade for Josh Smith

    Feb 11, 2013, 1:15 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Atlanta Hawks

    Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov wants a contender. Badly. And he has to look at his Nets then look at the Heat and realize his side is not better than them. Or the Knicks. Or Pacers. Or Bulls (with Derrick Rose back). And so he has a team trying to swing a big deal for maybe…

  12. Pacers may get Danny Granger back this week

    Feb 10, 2013, 9:39 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    The Pacers have managed to do just fine to this point of the season without Danny Granger, who was by far the team’s leading scorer a season ago. They may not have to be without him for much longer. Granger practiced on Sunday, and Indiana may get him back into the lineup as early as…

  13. Magic’s Nicholson to replace Drummond in Rising Stars game

    Feb 10, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

    Andrew Nicholson, Mirza Teletovic

    It was sad to see Detroit’s Andre Drummond go down for a month with a bad back, he was one of two guys who had a chance to chasing down Damian Lillard for Rookie of the Year (Anthony Davis is the other). Drummond was also supposed to be part of the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge…

  14. LeBron, Wade both dominant in Heat’s win over Lakers

    Feb 10, 2013, 6:34 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    There were stretches during Sunday afternoon’s contest between the Heat and the Lakers where L.A. appeared to be coming together, and seemed capable of challenging Miami on its home floor. The Lakers found themselves tied at halftime, and were getting solid performances from multiple players, while taking good shots and limiting their turnovers. Even if…

  15. Blake Griffin throws down the alley-oop against the Knicks (VIDEO)

    Feb 10, 2013, 6:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    The Clippers had it working from the very beginning during their win over the Knicks on Sunday, and Blake Griffin helped get things going with this highlight slam off of the perfect alley-oop pass from Lamar Odom.

    Feb 10, 2013, 4:31 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Carmelo Anthony tried — he took over the game in the third quarter, put up 42 points for the game and lifted the Knicks to the lead. But the Clippers took control of the game again when their bench returned to start the fourth — Los Angeles got 48 points from their bench on the…

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    There is the buzz — the Philadelphia 76ers are testing the trade waters for Evan Turner. Maybe just to gauge his market value, but they are asking around. There is the reality — Turner is in the middle of a shooting slump. In his last five games he is averaging 7.2 points a game on…

  18. The time George Karl decided to float a crazy trade rumor just because

    Feb 10, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    George Karl

    It’s my annual warning this time of year — when you hear a trade rumor think, “which team would benefit from that going public?” Usually that will lead you to where it was leaked. And no team is going to make a trade unless it benefits them — both sides need to see it as…

    Mark Jackson

    The Warriors have been a nice surprise this season, playing better than most expected while winning enough games early to be in solid playoff position for essentially the entire year.
