    A player of the Harlem Globetrotters dun

    Now that is how you shatter a backboard. That is former University of Cincinatti star and current Harlem Globetrotter Darnell Wilks with the truly impressive dunk during a Globetrotters game in Ecuador. In the USA there are breakaway rims and major arenas have another backboard set up in back to be wheeled out and put…

    Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo shouts instructions from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second half of their NBA basketball game in New York

    The suspension is coming. Probably a long one. But the league is doing its due dilligence before rendering a verdict out of the fight between Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries, between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night. Rondo met with league officials Thursday, tweets A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. #Celticstalk: Rondo spoke with…

  3. Gerald Wallace gets flopping warning for move on ‘Melo

    Nov 29, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Yup, that’s a flop. Brooklyn’s Gerald Wallace was trying to get back into the play and harass Carmelo Anthony, Wallace made contact and Anthony used his elbow to create some space, but the Wallace sold it like he was going for an Oscar nomination. This is Wallace’s first warning. There is no fine, unless he…

  4. Mavs Carlisle thinking of starting Fisher, benching Collison

    Nov 29, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    fisher-kaman-flagrant-2

    Texas was not one of the states that passed legalized marijuana. Right? Because I’m generally a pretty big Rick Carlisle fan, I think he makes smart decisions as a coach. And I get he is frustrated with Darren Collison and his play, particularly on defense. And Collison is battling a finger injury. Collison was benched…

  5. Brook Lopez out two games (at least) with foot sprain

    Nov 29, 2012, 1:56 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Andray Blatche, it’s time for your close-up. Blatche will become the Nets starting center the next two games because Brook Lopez will be out with a mild sprain of his right foot, tweets Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News. This could be a bigger blow if Kris Humphries is suspended for his part…

    Toronto Raptors v Dallas Mavericks

    The Troy Murphy era in Dallas lasted 14 games. The Mavericks are expected to release Murphy on Thursday, reports ESPN Dallas and multiple other sources.

  7. Andrew Bynum in nasty lawsuit with California neighbors

    Nov 29, 2012, 12:45 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Nothing brings out the best in people like disputes with neighbors. And by “best” I mean most petty, childish, scuzzy behavior possible. For seven years Andrew Bynum has owned a home in Westchester, an area of Los Angeles not too far from the Lakers practice facility (the Lakers traded him to Philadelphia last summer), and…

  8. Hasheem Thabeet’s strange ejection, then reversal by refs

    Nov 29, 2012, 11:39 AM EDT

    Hasheem Thabeet, James Harden, Omer Asik

    Hasheem Thabeet was taking part in the block party the Thunder were bringing to James Harden on Wednesday night (Russell Westbrook had the best Harden block with Serge Ibaka a close second.

  9. Doc Rivers: “We’re a soft team; we have no toughness”

    Nov 29, 2012, 10:50 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Wednesday night after another Celtics loss, Doc Rivers was relaying a lesson most of us learned somewhere along the way: It’s not the tough guys that get in fights. The Celtics have lost three of their last five, were pushed around by the Nets and more importantly are a bottom 10 defensive team in the…

  10. Lead referee explains what they saw, decisions on Nets/Celtics fight

    Nov 29, 2012, 10:09 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    NBA officials rarely speak to the media after games (there actually is a guard outside their dressing room door), but they make exceptions in special cases. The fight between the Celtics and Nets — the one started when Rajon Rondo went at and shoved Kris Humphries and spilled out into the stands — is a…

  11. Video: Stan Van Gundy, Chris Mannix talk Pau Gasol trade

    Nov 29, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol

    Former Magic coach Stan Van Gundy knows a thing or two about fitting in with Dwight Howard, and like most coaches around the league he realizes that talent wins. He also realizes Pau Gasol is talented. And so when asked by NBC Sports Radio host Erik Kuselias about it Van Gundy sounds like a coach…

  12. Expect Rajon Rondo to get lengthy suspension for fight

    Nov 29, 2012, 8:33 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    The NBA league office doesn’t take kindly to its players fighting on the court. It really doesn’t take kindly to said fights spilling over into the very-expensive seats of people who sit courtside at NBA games. That’s what happened when a fight broke out between the Celtics and Nets Wednesday night, when Rajon Rondo came…

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    The New York Knicks have the best offense in the NBA right now, scoring 111.5 points per 100 possessions — they are shooting the ball well and turning it over on fewer possessions than any other team in the Association. And they are doing it all with Carmelo Anthony playing the four. The power forward…

    Jerry Stackhouse

    Mark Morrison is not one of our Three Stars of the Night, mainly because he does not play professional basketball. For those unfortunate souls who are unfamiliar, Morrison is a singer who made a name for himself way back in 1996 with the hit single “Return of the Mack.” While Mark Morrison and that awesome…

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching a guy do a backflip on a surfboard…. Thunder 120, Rockets 98: Welcome back to Oklahoma City James Harden.

  17. Derek Fisher to sign with the Mavericks

    Nov 28, 2012, 11:06 PM EDT

    Derek Fisher

    Derek Fisher was unceremoniously traded from the Lakers to the Rockets last season, before ultimately signing with the Thunder in mid-March. He played meaningful minutes while in OKC, and averaged over 22 minutes per game in the team’s Finals loss at the hands of the Miami Heat. Fisher’s services were not retained by the Thunder,…

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:34 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Washington Wizards

    Break up the Wizards. Okay, maybe we’re not there yet. But Washington’s 12-game losing streak to start the season came to an end at home with an 84-82 win over Portland. They did it with 19 points from Jordan Crawford off the bench, with Trevor Ariza being efficient (14 points on 6-of-9 shooting) and with…

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:29 PM EDT

    Jared Dudley, Brandon Knight, Tayshaun Prince

    It isn’t easy to lose big in the NBA. You have to really work at it, the same way you need to work at securing a victory by even the smallest of margins, especially on the road. But the Suns found a way in Detroit on Wednesday, losing by 40 points to a Pistons team…
