  1. Making the advanced statistics movement relevant to players

    Mar 2, 2012, 9:21 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Ronnie Brewer, Taj Gibson

    There is a fantastic, must read post over TrueHoop by Henry Abbott, timed to coincide with the start of the SLOAN Conference — THE sports statistics conference — going on at MIT in Boston this weekend. Abbott’s point is a good one: It’s one thing for a front office to have a bunch of advanced…

  2. Video: Dwyane Wade’s no look ally-oop to LeBron James

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    Miami Heats LeBron James shares a laugh with teammate Dwyane Wade during the fourth quarter of the Heats NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were putting on a clinic in Portland on Thursday night. They combined for 71 points on just 55 shots, they were forces of nature on defense and the Trail Blazers really stood no chance. And in the open court, there is nothing like these two guys. That is one heck…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another day, another Thunder comeback

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:22 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Ryan Anderson

    What you missed while taking Google to court because their “street view” map option caught you urinating in your front yard…. Miami 107, Trail Blazers 93: This score doesn’t do justice to how much the Heat dominated this game, which we broke down as our game of the night. Thunder 105, Magic 102: Who says…

  4. Relentless Miami Heat wear down, blow out Trail Blazers

    Mar 2, 2012, 2:28 AM EST

    LeBron James

    Portland came out with a real energy Thursday night — they were up for this one. Their All-Star, LaMarcus Aldridge, had a dozen first quarter points and the Blazers seemed to hit everything they put up. The Heat have been a juggernaut and for 12 minutes the Blazers matched it. But the Heat are relentless.…

  5. Video: David Stern talks Lin, lockout, more with Bob Costas

    Mar 1, 2012, 10:40 PM EST

    David Stern

    David Stern swung by Costas Tonight (on the NBC Sports Network) to do an interview that felt like old times — Bob Costas and Stern talking was a regular thing back in the NBA on NBC days. As you would expect, it’s a good interview. They covered everything from Jeremy Lin to the Hornets sale…

  6. Video: Wojnarowski talks Knicks potential (and trade deadline)

    Mar 1, 2012, 8:26 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    The Knicks scored 71 points  in the second half of Wednesday night’s win and they looked like what Knicks fans — and Mike D’Antoni — hoped to see: a powerful offense that can play a little defense. Yahoo Sports Adrian Wojnarowski was on NBC SportsTalk on Thursday and talked about the potential of these Knicks…

  7. Stein: Odom to play in one D-League game before returning

    Mar 1, 2012, 6:46 PM EST

    Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Vince Carter

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein: Lamar Odom latest: Sources tell ESPN that Odom likely to play one game (Saturday) for Mavs’ D-League affiliate to “get his legs back” Odom has missed the last three games for the Mavericks due to personal reasons, all of which the Mavericks have lost. Odom has struggled this season, and is…

  8. JaVale McGee trying to adjust to benching

    Mar 1, 2012, 6:24 PM EST

    JaVale Planking Freezer

    The Washington Post’s Michael Lee has the report: After he bit on a pump fake, left his feet and fouled Milwaukee center Drew Gooden on a three-pointer with one second left in the first half on Tuesday, JaVale McGee had to wait nearly 29 minutes of game action before he got the chance to play again for…

  9. Celtics President Ainge says he anticipates Rondo “being here for a long time”

    Mar 1, 2012, 5:50 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    The Rajon Rondo trade rumors have started up again, but Celtics President Danny Ainge is doing his best to downplay them. The Boston Herald has the report: Danny Ainge, despite another wave of Rajon Rondo trade speculation, said this afternoon that he expects the all-star point guard to still be a Celtic following the March…

  10. Chris Bosh to miss next two Heat games for personal reasons

    Mar 1, 2012, 4:32 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Miami Heat

    Our condolences go out to Chris Bosh, his grandmother has passed away. You are in our thoughts. Because of that, Bosh will be missing the Heat’s Thursday game against Portland and Friday against Utah. He is expected to return Sunday when the Heat travel to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers. The Heat will…

  11. Report: Pierce, Allen drawing more trade interest than Rondo

    Mar 1, 2012, 4:07 PM EST

    paul-pierce--ray-allen-game-4-of-the-2008-nba-finals

    All the buzz today on your television and sports talk radio has been the idea that the Boston Celtics are ready to move Rajon Rondo. And they are — GM Danny Ainge isn’t “shopping” Rondo in the sense he is not calling around desperately trying to trade Rondo for a couple role players, the Celtics…

  12. Dwight Howard may land a lot of places, but not with Knicks

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:47 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Any time a superstar is on the move via free agency, there are a couple teams that just automatically come up in the conversation. Whether there is anything to it or not. Fans will bring it up, rumors will get flowing, logic be damned. Like Dwight Howard to the Knicks. New York already has a…

  13. Report: Odom meets with Cuban, will return to Mavs soon

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:34 PM EST

    Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Vince Carter

    Personal issues surrounding an illness with his father have kept Lamar Odom away from the Mavericks since before the All-Star break. But it’s more than just that — the entire fit with Dallas has been poor this season. Odom has not seemed happy and he is not one of those players who can compartmentalize his…

  14. Kobe thinks someone will score 100 points in a game again

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:03 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    Friday is the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain scoring 100 points in a game. A feat that is shrouded in legend and myth, but in actuality was a bit bogus as teammates fouled the opposing team at the end of a blowout game to stop the clock, send them to the line and get the…

  15. Hawks pick up Dampier as insurance for rest of season

    Mar 1, 2012, 1:23 PM EST

    Erick Dampier

    Eric Dampier isn’t brining a lot to the Atlanta Hawks the rest of this season. But the journeyman center provides some depth at a ravaged position in Atlanta. The Hawks have picked up Dampier for the rest of the season, Marc Spears of Yahoo tweets. Right now Zaza Pachulia is the starting center while everyone…

  16. Newest New York Ranger says Jeremy Lin can punch him

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:45 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v New York Knicks

    This is why you should be reading ProHockeyTalk… The New York Rangers have a new enforcer, John Scott. (For you hoops fans wondering what an enforcer does, think Charles Oakley if the NBA let him fight.) Before he was a Ranger he played for the Chicago Blackhawks. He and some Blackhawk teammates had taken in…

  17. Magic try to bring in players like Nash not ship Howard out

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:26 PM EST

    Steve Nash Dwight Howard

    Orlando is not ready to trade Dwight Howard. They may not be by March 15, but they certainly are not right now. In fact, multiple reports have them working the phones trying to bring in more talent to put around Howard rather than ship him out. And they know to keep him they can’t just…

  18. Barack Obama knew about Jeremy Lin before you did

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:01 PM EST

    President Barack Obama

    It’s part of being President of the United States — you get information before everyone else. Of course, most of that is about things like the nuclear capabilities of Iran and other such actually important matters. But he gets basketball information, too. Like about Jeremy Lin, the Harvard-graduate Knicks sensation. He told Grantland’s Bill Simmons…

    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). What is the most miserable sports city in the United States? Forbes says it’s Atlanta — thanks Hawks for doing your part to get them…

  20. Clippers ask long-time fan Clipper Darrell to stop using that name

    Mar 1, 2012, 11:04 AM EST

    clipper darrell

    This is about brand image and money getting in the way of passion. It’s about misguided loyalty. It’s about the Clippers still being the Clippers. You know Darrell Baily as Clipper Darrell — the most passionate, long-time fan the Clippers have ever had. The guy with the blue-and-red suit (and car to match). He was…
