  1. Ryan Anderson in walking boot, says ankle looks “like a softball”

    Apr 3, 2012, 6:19 PM EST

    Ryan Anderson

    From the Orlando Sentinel’s Joshua B. Robbins: Ryan Anderson says his right ankle still looks like a “softball.” He’s wearing a walking boot. The 23-year old Anderson, who was once a throw-in in a trade that sent Vince Carter to the Magic, has been enjoying a breakout season for the Magic — his PER is…

  2. David Stern still wants to add a year to the age limit

    Apr 3, 2012, 6:11 PM EST

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    From the AP: The league wasn’t able to change its draft eligibility rules during collective bargaining last year. The rules require an American player to be 19 years old and a year out of high school. The players’ association would only agree to form a committee to discuss changes, and it is unlikely to consent…

  3. Wade to miss tonight’s game with knee injury

    Apr 3, 2012, 5:55 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade

    The Heat have announced that Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade will miss tonight’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers with a knee injury. According to the Heat, Wade is “day-to-day.” This will be the 10th game the 30-year old Wade has missed this season. When healthy, Wade has been amazing — he’s currently averaging 22.8 points…

  4. Report: Lakers fine Andrew Bynum for “numerous infractions”

    Apr 3, 2012, 5:16 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    This shouldn’t be a shock with a Lakers team trying to establish the power of coach Mike Brown — and the rebellious Andrew Bynum having all the leverage — but you have to wonder how it will play out long term. The Lakers have fined their All-Star center Bynum, reports Dave McMenamin at ESPNLosAngeles.com. Bynum…

  5. Gilbert Arenas as Kevin Durant stopper? Sure, for a night.

    Apr 3, 2012, 4:39 PM EST

    Gilbert Arenas

    The Memphis Grizzlies beat the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night while you were watching Anthony Davis, and we all chalked it up to being a sandwich game (the Thunder beat the Lakers, Heat and Bulls in the last 8 days and have the Heat again Wednesday). We missed the obvious — Kevin Durant can’t…

  6. Where does Anthony Davis fit in the NBA? Anywhere he wants.

    Apr 3, 2012, 4:12 PM EST

    Kentucky Wildcats' Davis goes to the hoop against Kansas Jayhawks' Withey during the second half of their men's NCAA Final Four championship college basketball game in New Orleans

    On a crucial play with 24 seconds left in the NCAA national championship game, Kentucky’s Anthony Davis had both feet in the lane when Kansas’ Elijah Johnson popped out off a screen out behind the three point line on the left side and took a pass for a standard catch-and-shoot three. Make it and this…

  7. Video: Kobe, LeBron featured in new NBA “BIG” ads

    Apr 3, 2012, 3:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    Still none of these have been as good as the first one — Rajon Rondo chasing the ball with some Primus providing the soundtrack. But the NBA has decided to pull out the big guns for the newest iterations — Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. Personally, I like the Kobe one a little better. Maybe…

  8. Mavs’ Haywood jokes he’s training with Mayweather after punch allegation

    Apr 3, 2012, 3:12 PM EST

    Bobcats forward Maggette drives on Mavericks center Haywood during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    Stan Van Gundy is ticked. Dwight Howard missed one game (and is a game-time decision Tuesday vs. the Pistons) due to back spasms he and his center claim comes from Brendan Haywood “double punching” Howard in the back during the third quarter of the Magic/Mavericks game. Van Gundy sent the film to the league office.…

  9. Eric Gordon to return to Hornets Wednesday against Nuggets

    Apr 3, 2012, 2:29 PM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Eric Gordon — the key piece moving East when New Orleans sent Chris Paul to the Clippers — played in just two games at the start of the season before a knee injury sent him to the sidelines. Gordon is set to return to the lineup on Wednesday, according to Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune.…

  10. Video: Using overdubbed ’70s movies sell tickets in Minnesota

    Image (1) timberwolves_logo-thumb-250x185-14283.gif for post 6281

    It was a long winter in Minnesota, where the creative types were locked up inside for too long going a little stir crazy. That’s our best explaination for the Timberwolves latest advertising campaign. It is sort of a riff on Mystery Science Theater 3000 — or really, a direct rip of Woody Allen’s “What’s Up…

  11. Clippers defending their way to six straight victories

    Apr 3, 2012, 12:59 PM EST

    Randy Foye, Caron Butler, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, J.J. Hickson

    On paper, the Clippers might be the second-best team in the West — a couple of elite stars with some quality role players around them, decent roster balance — but they haven’t played like it for long stretches of this season. Their offense has been inconsistent and their defense has never impressed… Well, until the…

  12. Shaq talks NBA’s all-time greatest (and Kazaam) with GQ

    Apr 3, 2012, 11:55 AM EST

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Shaquille O’Neal really doesn’t talk clothing in his interview with GQ. Which is fine, my guess is that Shaq doesn’t really fit into anything off the rack anyway. We shop for clothes in very different worlds. But he does talk with GQ about a number of other things, from his girlfriend (they are still together,…

  13. Durant says Thunder better when Westbrook shoots more

    Apr 3, 2012, 11:32 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Skip Bayless’ job at ESPN2 is to get people to watch him. He’s good at it — saying often outrageous things will get people to watch to see what you will say next. (His ultimate goal is no different than this blog or anywhere else in the media, our job is to get you to…

  14. Tuesday And-1 links: What college coaches could transition to NBA?

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • What college coaches would make good NBA coaches. We hear a lot of…

  15. Through all the drama, ‘Melo keeps eye on playoff spot

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony comes down after stuffing ball against Toronto Raptors in NBA game in New York

    Just another day in New York with the Knicks. Jeremy Lin had surgery and was tweeting photos from the hospital. Baron Davis was trying to stay healthy enough to carry the load left to him as the point guard. Meanwhile reports surfaced suggesting the Knicks may have held off on announcing that Lin needed surgery…

  16. Deron Williams sounds ready to test free agent market

    Apr 3, 2012, 9:28 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    Don’t pull out the “loyalty” card on Deron Williams. Some Nets fans have tried it on twitter as a way to convince D-Will to stay in New Jersey — actually, make that Brooklyn — and not opt-out this summer. Williams will have none of it. He keeps saying his loyalty is to winning. What Williams…

  17. Another Minnesota point guard down: Ridnour sprains ankle

    Apr 3, 2012, 8:09 AM EST

    Luke Ridnour

    The good news is the Timberwolves are about get J.J. Barea back, because they are hurting again at point guard. Luke Ridnour went down Monday night with what appeared to be a severe ankle sprain. It was an innocent play where he stepped on Jimmer Fredette’s ankle, but the twist was nasty. No word yet…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Mayo sticks dagger in Thunder

    Apr 3, 2012, 2:58 AM EST

    O.J. Mayo

    What you missed while watching Kentucky win the national title they seemed destined to win…. Memphis 94, Oklahoma City 88: Apparently the Thunder are not comfortable on top of my (and everybody’s) power rankings. This was always a dangerous letdown game for the Thunder — they beat the Heat, Lakers and Bulls in the eight…

    Apr 2, 2012, 11:45 PM EST

    J+J+Redick+Orlando+Magic+v+Atlanta+Hawks+Game+Qr7Spoqsx_Kl

    This is not exactly what LeBron James listens to before games to work up a little froth. Milo Greene — and if you ask which one is Milo you sound like your grandfather asking, “which one is Pink?” — is harmonic, up-tempo folk band. J.J. Redick is a big fan. Huge fan. And this is…

  20. Tom Thibodeau confirms Rose will return before season ends

    Apr 2, 2012, 10:18 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    When will Derrick Rose be back? He is sitting out his 11th straight game Monday night, and the Bulls have not been pressured to put him back in the lineup too soon because the Miami Heat have put it in cruise control and not pressured Chicago for the top seed in the East. But at…
