  1. Video: Eric Gordon returns to Hornets, scores 24 in win

    Dec 30, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    It’s going to take more than one game to make the fans of the New Orleans Hornets forgive Eric Gordon for signing an offer sheet with Phoenix last summer and saying publicly that is where he wanted to play, which combined with his injuries made it seem like he wanted out of New Orleans. But…

  2. Report: Rockets assign Royce White to D-League

    Dec 30, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Royce White

    Royce White, the No. 16 pick from the last draft, has been away from the Rockets since just a couple weeks into the season as he clashed with the team over the best way to deal with his anxiety disorder. Now it looks like he may start out his career in the D-League — Houston…

  3. Former NBA player Jerome Whitehead found dead at 56

    Dec 30, 2012, 3:47 AM EDT

    JEROME-WHITEHEAD

    Jerome Whitehead, who stared in college at Marquette and went on to have a 12-year NBA career, has died at age 56. He was found dead in his home in El Cajon, Calif;, (near San Diego) back on Dec. 20, reports the Chicago Tribune and multiple other outlets. He was discovered by his sister and…

  4. Three Stars of the Night: An Odd Scoring Battle

    Dec 30, 2012, 2:36 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez, Kyrie Irving

    With 22 teams in action, you’d expect the usual suspects to be the big scorers of the night. Guys like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and James Harden. The guys battling Kobe Bryant for the scoring title. Those guys. Nope! Saturday was a little bit wild and crazy, and as a result we had Luis Scola…

  5. The Heat go cold at the wrong time, lose big to the Bucks

    Dec 30, 2012, 12:44 AM EDT

    Bucks guard Jennings drives to the basket against Heat center Harrellson in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee

    Dwyane Wade returned, but Miami’s road woes traveled right along with him to Milwaukee. After losing to Detroit and the Will Bynum show last night, Miami collapsed in the fourth quarter tonight, falling to the Bucks, 104-85. Believe it or not, Miami appeared to be in firm control with a little over two minutes left…

  6. Brandon Roy issues statement regarding his future

    Dec 29, 2012, 8:16 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Earlier today, it was reported that Minnesota Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy was considering retirement due to multiple setbacks with his troublesome knees. Roy was able to play in just five games this season before he was forced to undergo knee surgery. Roy has more medical issues than you can count, and the post-surgery setbacks were thought to…

  7. Report: Phil Jackson to get first shot at Nets job… if he wants it

    Dec 29, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson answers questions at a post-game news conference following Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final basketball playoff against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas

    Does Phil Jackson really want to coach the Brooklyn Nets? I’m far from sold he does, but he’s going to get the first shot, reports Howard Beck at the New York Times. The Nets have firmly targeted Phil Jackson — the man with the 11 championship rings, the Zen maxims and the geometric offense —…

  8. Chris Paul puts Gordon Hayward on skates (GIF)

    Dec 29, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The Clippers were down 19 to the Utah Jazz about halfway through the third period, and the 15-game winning streak looked like it was finally coming to a close. Utah was getting easy buckets inside, and the Clippers offense had turned to mush. But what do you know? Chris Paul suddenly snapped into attack mode,…

  9. Hornets guard Eric Gordon activated and expected to make debut

    Dec 29, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    After playing in just nine games last season and zero so far this year, Eric Gordon is finally set to return tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats. It’s been so long that it’s easy to forget just how good Gordon was with the Clippers two seasons ago. The stocky shooting guard averaged 22 points a game…

  10. Report: Andrea Bargnani “a lock to be moved”

    Dec 29, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors Andrea Bargnani reacts after hitting a shot during their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    It sounds like the Toronto Raptors are finally ready to give up on Andrea Bargnani. The first pick of the 2006 draft has displayed tantalizing potential and has put together short bursts of production throughout his seven seasons in Toronto, but his deficiencies as a defender and a rebounder have become increasingly more difficult to…

  11. Report: Antawn Jamison is frustrated by lack of playing time, seeks explanation

    Dec 29, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison, Lamar Odom

    Antawn Jamison came to the Lakers to play an important role in the pursuit of winning an NBA championship. He took less money — signing for the minimum — because he saw the Lakers as his best shot to be a key contributor on a winning team after toiling on the hapless Cavs for the…

  12. Jarrett Jack throws Dorell Wright’s shoe into the crowd (VIDEO)

    Dec 29, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Jrue Holiday

    One of the nice things about Dwyane Wade‘s integrity coming into question this week was that we all got to happily remember the time Wade threw Mike Bibby’s shoe out of bounds. It was pure comedy gold. From Wade’s subtle toss not to arouse suspicion, to Bibby’s “come on bro” expression afterward, to Wade’s taunting backpedal…it’s just…

  13. Brandon Roy has setback with knees, not playing Saturday or soon

    Dec 29, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    I just feel bad for Brandon Roy at this point. His recovery from his latest knee surgery (number seven, but who is counting?) progressed to the point he had planed to practice Friday and if there were no setbacks suit up for the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday. There were setbacks, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

  14. Heat issue statement supporting Wade in face of suspension

    Dec 29, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat

    Guys get suspended all the time for something the league deems dangerous to another player, most deserved but some not. The team and the player ususally take their punishment and move on without a word. But after Wade was suspended by the league for kicking the Bobcats’ Ramon Sessions in the groin — a suspension…

  15. Report: New York Knicks want Amar’e Stoudemire to come off the bench initially

    Dec 29, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire waits to take a foul shot against the New Orleans Hornets in the second half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Let’s add everything up. The Knicks are 21-9 without Amar’e Stoudemire this season. Carmelo Anthony is having the best year of his career and is a legitimate MVP candidate, all while playing most of his minutes at Stoudemire’s position. But now Stoudemire is close to returning, and the Knicks are finally presented with the potential…

  16. Report: Maloofs reluctant to trade Cousins; Celtics among teams interested

    Dec 29, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Ever since the Kings organization suspended DeMarcus Cousins — for fighting with Keith Smart, the coach hired because it was thought he had a good relationship with the young big man — other teams have started poking around to see if the Kings are willing to trade Cousins. Among the teams very interested are the…

  17. Video: Kings’ Johnson hits game-winning three to beat Knicks

    Dec 29, 2012, 8:08 AM EDT

    James Johnson, Aaron Brooks

    Now that is drama. The Knicks almost completed an amazing comeback win — down 27 in the second quarter they came all the way back to lead by two points with less than 20 seconds to play. One basket probably seals the win but DeMarcus Cousins reads the Knicks play — Jason Kidd and Tyson Chandler…

  18. Will Bynum is an unstoppable force (for a night), leads Pistons over Heat

    Dec 29, 2012, 12:18 AM EDT

    Will Bynum

    Will Bynum is an unstoppable force of nature. Okay, that’s not true. But he is a guy capable on a given night of just lighting it up and taking over an NBA game. Like when he dropped 35 on the Hawks a couple of nights ago. He can do it against anyone — including the…

  19. Video: Kyrie Irving’s crazy buzzer-beater at end of first half

    Dec 28, 2012, 11:16 PM EDT

    Cavaliers Irving reacts to making a three point basket in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    Kyrie Irving = fun to watch. The  Cavaliers are just flat out entertaining when Irving is playing. They’re not good — they lost to the Hawks in this game 102-94 — but they are a lot of fun. Someday they’ll be more fun when they have some talent around him. And Kyrie Irving can hit…

  20. Report: Jeff Van Gundy interested in Nets job, but won’t meet with team while interim coach is in place

    Dec 28, 2012, 9:19 PM EDT

    Jeff Van Gundy

    Jeff Van Gundy was an NBA head coach for 11 years with the Knicks and the Rockets, but hasn’t held that job title since the 2006-07 season. It appears that may change as early as next year, but only if the Brooklyn Nets are willing to wait that long to secure Van Gundy’s services. From…
