    Miami Heat's LeBron James dunks against the Chicago Bulls during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    When watching LeBron James finish what seems like the 400th alley-oop he’s received from Dwyane Wade on a fast break, the age-old question comes to mind: If a highlight happens against the Kings, is it really a highlight at all? Oh, come on, we kid the Kings. But what caught my eye while watching the…

  2. Mark Cuban says he won’t trade Dirk Nowitzki

    Jan 13, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban, Dirk Nowitizki

    Dirk Nowitzki was a bit critical of Mark Cuban’s plan for the Mavericks recently, as Dallas has found itself struggling in the two seasons following the team’s title run in 2011. Cuban chose not to bring back certain key pieces of the championship team, including defensive standout Tyson Chandler, while opting instead for financial flexibility…

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Detroit Pistons

    The Rockets couldn’t beat the Sixers in Philadelphia on Saturday, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying on the part of James Harden. Harden finished with 29 points on 10-19 shooting, to go along with nine rebounds and six assists. But none of his baskets were as pretty as this one that he converted…

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    It has been a whirlwind of a week for Kings fans and the Sacramento Kings relocation story in general.

    Miami Heats LeBron James looks on during their NBA basketball game against his former team the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    We all remember how LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers in free agency. It wasn’t pretty, and he even later said he would do things differently if he had the chance. Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert was famously critical of the way LeBron left the franchise, feeling as though James owed the team that drafted him…

  6. Blake Griffin goes off for 30, and don’t think they’re all dunks (VIDEO)

    Jan 13, 2013, 2:51 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    It wasn’t enough — the Orlando Magic snapped the Los Angeles Clippers 13-game home winning streak. Mostly because the Clippers defense — which has been stout all season — took the night off. But Blake Griffin had a big game for Los Angeles — 30 points on 15-of-22 shooting. Here are the highlights. Yes, there…

    Jan 12, 2013, 10:42 PM EDT

    John Wall, Louis Williams

    John Wall made his long awaited season debut on Saturday, scoring 14 points and dishing out four assists in 21 minutes off the bench to help the Wizards to a 93-83 win over the Atlanta Hawks. Washington notched just its sixth win in 34 tries on the season, but the vibe around the team may…

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

    Grant Hill, Josh McRoberts

    The Orlando Magic are just 13-23 on the season, but they have some surprising signature wins that give the fan base hope as the team rebuilds without a superstar on the roster, and with a first-year head coach running the show. Saturday afternoon’s come-from-behind 104-101 win over a Clippers team that held a share of…

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James rubs his jaw after being fouled during the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis

    LeBron James appeared at a charity dinner in Sacramento on Friday, as a guest of the city’s mayor and former NBA player Kevin Johnson. With the Kings once again in crisis, Johnson playfully asked James if he might be interested in purchasing Sacramento’s NBA franchise. James played along, and a good time was seemingly had by all.

    Jan 12, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    The Knicks have struggled a bit as of late, and have had seemingly nothing but bad news on the injury front. Mike Woodson changed all that after the team practiced on Saturday when he told reporters that Iman Shumpert has been cleared by doctors, and could make his season debut later this week. From Jared…

  11. Damian Lillard drops a career high 37 on the Warriors (VIDEO)

    Jan 12, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Isaiah Thomas

    These are some pretty tasty Damian Lillard highlights from the Blazers loss on Friday night at the hands of the Warriors. Lillard essentially goes bonkers from distance, pulling up from long range time and time again and draining three-pointers as if they were 15-foot jumpers. He went 7-of-12 from behind the arc, and was 15-of-25…

  12. Grant Hill to make season debut for Clippers Saturday vs. Magic

    Jan 12, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    If you were looking for a reason to tune in for an afternoon contest between the Clippers and the Magic, Grant Hill making his season debut for Los Angeles is as good a reason as any. Hill was said to be a game time decision after practice on Friday, but Vinnie Del Negro told reporters…

    Jan 12, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Lionel Hollins, Jerryd Bayless, Mike Conley

    The trade talk surrounding Rudy Gay has begun to heat up recently, and for a variety of reasons, it isn’t likely to stop until mid-February’s trade deadline has come and gone. The Grizzlies struggled through a brief 2-4 stretch, but have recovered nicely to win four straight, including Friday night’s overtime home thriller against the…

  14. Steve Novak calls Nate Robinson ‘Little Nathan’ after Robinson mocks his three-point celebration

    Jan 12, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Steve Novak

    Steve Novak has adopted the “discount double check” as his go-to celebration for hitting big three-pointers. It’s the same one Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has made famous on the football field, and then even more so after appearing in a series of insurance commercials. The celebration is weak by NBA standards, but hey,…

  15. Gerald Wallace goes down hard, leaves game with injury (VIDEO)

    Jan 12, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Gerald Wallace

    Gerald Wallace has earned the nickname “Crash” over the years for a reason. He consistently and fearlessly takes flight around the rim, with little or no regard for his own personal safety. Early in Friday night’s win over the Suns, Wallace went up for a basket, but was fouled by P.J. Tucker in mid-air, and…

  16. Be warned: This year’s Thunder are better than last year’s

    Jan 12, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Serge Ibaka, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Kevin Durant is a better player today than he was when the Thunder lost Game 5 of the NBA finals last season. His ball handling has improved allowing him to take on more playmaking. His defense is better. He is rebounding more. Russell Westbrook is more of a floor general. His play seems crisper, more…

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich, Manu Ginobili

    The Memphis Grizzlies were up four with 12 seconds to go when Rudy Gay missed two free throws and left the door just a little open. San Antonio came down and Stephen Jackson hit a three. Memphis inbounded and Zach Randolph was fouled and hit two free throws with three seconds left to put the…

    “I told the team that the biggest thing is that our season starts Sunday,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said after the latest in a parade of losses. “And we have got one run and have one shot at it and they need to get ready mentally and physically.” That is the sound of a desperate…

  19. Lakers reserve big Jordan Hill needs hip surgery, out for season

    Jan 11, 2013, 11:54 PM EDT

    Jordan Hill, Kris Humphries

    Friday night Jordan Hill showed up in street clothes to Staples Center and didn’t look good limping down the hall. Slowly. It hurt to watch him walk. Turns out it was with good reason — he needs hip surgery and will be out for the season, the Lakers reported. After seeing the team doctor and…
