    Just sad, terrible news out of Florida for the Knicks’ Amar’e Stodemire. His brother Hazell has been killed in a car crash in Florida, reports TMZ. There as of now are not a lot of details about the incident. The accident happened on Route 27 in Lake Wales. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Stoudemire…

  3. Chris Bosh is okay with the fact you don’t love him

    Feb 6, 2012, 10:05 AM EST

    Heats' Bosh moves around Raptors' Davis during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Chris Bosh is going to make the All-Star team. The coaches (who choose the reserves) will put him on the squad, no question. He’s one of the best forwards in the game and deserves to be in Orlando at the end of the month for the big showcase. But you the fans didn’t vote him…

    Feb 6, 2012, 8:03 AM EST

    Mike D'Antoni, Bennie Adams

    Knicks fans may think a change in coach is long past due, what with the 9-15 record in a season that held so much promise, but Knicks management continues to be patient. For once. Echoing other reports from inside the team over the past month, Newsday reports that Mike D’Antoni’s job is safe. For now.…

    Feb 6, 2012, 12:26 AM EST

    hornets Carl Landry

    In a season with few bright spots in New Orleans, Carl Landry has been something solid off the bench for them. Or was, he will be out three to for weeks with an MCL sprain, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. He got it against the Pistons when he and Jason Maxiell banged knees. I’d say…

    Feb 5, 2012, 8:30 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett dunk

    What you missed while preparing the chili to take to your Super Bowl party…. Celtics 98, Grizzlies 80: Vintage Kevin Garnett showed up for this game — 24 points on 12 shots, 9 rebounds and tremendous energy on defense — and that helped overwhelm a Grizzlies team that is showing how much they miss Zach…

  8. Kevin Garnett doesn’t want you to question his three ball

    Feb 5, 2012, 4:26 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    For three straight games, Kevin Garnett has knocked down a three point shot. Like he’s Ray Allen or something. He’s always had a midrange shot but the deep ball is not his game, he’s no stretch four. But he’s gotten a little Brian Scalabrine in him the last week. Not that you should ask him…

  9. Clippers will attempt to continue to stockpile talent by pursuing J.R. Smith

    Feb 5, 2012, 3:30 PM EST

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    The L.A. Clippers have had maybe the most impressive offseason of any team in the league. Already sitting in second place in the Western Conference standings, and with their latest acquisition, Kenyon Martin, joining the team in Orlando on Sunday, they will look to get even deeper by going after J.R. Smith, reports Brad Turner…

  10. Luol Deng and the cruel tutelage of Tom Thibodeau

    Feb 5, 2012, 2:26 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Bulls fans have been perplexed by Tom Thibodeau’s management of minutes. For the reigning Coach of the Year, a man who has transformed the Bulls into a defensive juggernaut, the East’s best regular season team and a Conference Finalist, it’s really one of the handful of criticisms you can make against Thibs. He routinely plays…

  12. Jeremy Lin came to play Saturday night, and for a night was the point guard the Knicks need

    Feb 5, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks tried Toney Douglas. They tried Iman Shumpert. They’re waiting on Baron Davis. But for a night, they got the dynamic, slashing, pick-and-roll point guard they’ve needed so badly. And the result was a win over the Nets behind Jeremy Lin‘s 25 points and 7 assists, not to mention stellar defense on Deron Williams.…

  13. Mark Cuban continues to put his money where his mouth is

    Feb 5, 2012, 11:30 AM EST

    Mark Cuban

    Mark Cuban badgers officials. He needles the league office. He antagonizes opposing players and fans. He recently advised me on Twitter to notify him when I got a clue after a crack about Vince Carter. But he walks the walk. Cuban notoriously matches every fine he gets from the league for whatever acerbic thing he…

  14. Video: What are NBA players bringing to Super Bowl parties?

    Feb 5, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    How do I get invited to Nicolas Batum‘s party? The clever gentlemen at The Basketball Jones asked a number of NBA players what snacks they were bringing to Super Bowl parties — you had better like chips. And that’s from the ones who didn’t say their wives were going to handle it. Except for Batum.…

  15. The implications of rumors regarding the disintegration of Dwight Howard’s interest in the Lakers by the top dog Kobe Bryant

    Feb 5, 2012, 9:30 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    OK, I’m going to tell you a story, and at the end of it, we’re going to try and make heads or tails out of what’s actually going on. Because it in no way can be what is reportedly going on because if it is, then Metta World Peace is no longer the craziest individual…

  16. Michael Redd calls surprise start “one of the proudest moments of his career” after Suns beat the Bobcats

    Michael-Redd-suns

    Michael Redd arrived at the US Airways Center in Phoenix more than four hours before his Suns were set to face the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday. The reason, he said, was just to get some extra work in and to keep himself prepared for when his time would come to play more minutes. He found…

  17. Seattle officials are moving on bringing an NBA team back to Seattle by fall. And the Kings are being discussed.

    Seattle_Supersonics_Logo

    There have been better separations of cities from teams. But the move of the Seattle Supersonics from Seattle to become the Oklahoma City Thunder remains the worst in the history of the NBA. It’s not just the forty years of history, the success of the franchise, the passion of the fans, it’s the way the…

  18. Kevin Love may have intentionally stepped on Luis Scola’s face (video)

    Feb 4, 2012, 10:32 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love doesn’t have a reputation as a dirty player, but that may change a bit depending on how you view the play above from Saturday night’s game between the Timberwolves and the Rockets. After a frustrating offensive trip for Love on the previous possession, and after Luis Scola turns it over and hits the…

    Jerry Sloan wants to put the whole thing behind him. But the circumstances surrounding his departure from the Utah Jazz keeps coming up, as it did when Karl Malone did a lengthy interview with the Salt Lake City Tribune about it. Today Sloan responded with a public statement, which is pretty much the public relations…

    Andrew-Bynum-and-Dwight-Howard-806-306x248

    From CBSSports.com: Despite assertions to the contrary, the Lakers remain firmly on Howard’s list of three teams he’s asked to be traded to, along with the Nets and Mavericks, multiple people familiar with the situation said.
