  1. Report: Raptors more interested in moving Lowry than Calderon

    Jan 27, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    On paper Jose Calderon seems like a prime trade piece for Toronto — 11.1 points and 7.4 assists per game, shooting 43.4 percent from three, he is solid and plays smart, plus he is in the final year of a $10 million contract. But that’s not the point guard they are looking to move, reports…

    Nike Basketball unveiled the All-Star editions of the signature shoes for LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant earlier this week, and the style and color choices will undoubtedly be coveted by sneaker collectors worldwide.

    Jan 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    The lack of depth at the point guard position is pretty far down the list as far as reasons the Lakers have had trouble stringing together a series of wins this season. Nevertheless, any help would be more than welcome at this point, and it appears that some will be on the way early next…

    Jan 27, 2013, 12:04 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers guard Holiday shoots past the defense of the New York Knicks Chandler during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    Jrue Holiday was one of five Eastern Conference players named as an All-Star reserve on Thursday who will be making their first career appearance in the NBA’s midseason exhibition. Someone should have told him he already earned the honor. Holiday exploded for a career-high 35 points, to go along with five rebounds and six assists…

  5. Gerald Henderson hits the game-winning three as Bobcats beat Timberwolves (VIDEO)

    Henderson_Gerald

    This was a pretty insane sequence, and an appropriate one to result in the Bobcats snapping their 16-game home losing streak, which was just two shy of the NBA record held by the 1993-94 Dallas Mavericks. The Bobcats almost turned it over on this series more than once, but ultimately Kemba Walker chased down the…

  6. Kyrie Irving hits the game-winner to send Cavs past Raptors (VIDEO)

    Jan 26, 2013, 10:12 PM EDT

    Omri Casspi; Kyrie Irving

    Let’s just get this out of the way right now — that was absolutely horrible defense by the Raptors. Kyrie Irving hit the game-winning shot from three-point distance with just 0.7 seconds remaining to give his Cavaliers the 99-98 victory in Toronto. The win was Cleveland’s third straight and fourth in its last five games.…

    Royce White

    The Rockets have reinstated rookie Royce White, the team and player announced together via a joint release. White was suspended by the Rockets back on Jan. 6 for “refusing to provide services as required by his Uniform Player Contract,” with a refusal to report for a D-League assignment right at the top of the list. It…

  8. Chris Bosh says he’s a lock to make the Hall of Fame

    Jan 26, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    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.…

  9. How much is Josh Smith worth? He thinks he’s a max player.

    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…

  10. Marv Albert says it seems like Celtics are pumping in artificial crowd noise

    Jan 26, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    marv albert tnt

    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. Albert essentially said during the telecast that he believes the…

    2010 nba all star dallas

    The 2010 NBA All-Star game was hosted by the Dallas Mavericks, but was held in Arlington, Texas in the massive football stadium that was built as the new home for the Dallas Cowboys. A record crowd of 108,713 showed up to watch the midseason exhibition, and it was truly an amazing event — one that…

  12. Stan Van Gundy puts chances at ’50-50 or worse’ that the Lakers can retain Dwight Howard after this season

    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…

  13. Reggie Evans not happy Grizzlies put starters back in during blowout win over Nets

    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…

  14. Bulls VP Paxson says team’s only deadline move will be to get Derrick Rose back

    Jan 26, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    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.…

  17. Heat fan hits half-court shot to win $75K, gets tackled by LeBron James (VIDEO)

    Jan 25, 2013, 10:58 PM EDT

    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…

  18. Kevin McHale has some fun with New Orleans’ new Pelicans nickname (VIDEO)

    Jan 25, 2013, 9:46 PM EDT

    Assistant coach Kevin McHale of the Rook

    The reactions to the news that the New Orleans NBA franchise — the basketball artist currently but soon to be formerly known as the Hornets — will be changing its name to the Pelicans effective next season has been all over the map in terms of love-it or hate-it responses. Go ahead and count Rockets…

  19. Cuban says Delonte West not coming back to Mavericks

    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…

  20. Ricky Rubio apologizes to acting coach Terry Porter for complaining about fourth quarter benching

    Jan 25, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    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. Barea, who was making things happen for the Timberwolves in a somewhat close game down the stretch. Rubio is still on a minutes limit as he makes his way back from knee surgery, and had already…
