  1. Video: John Wall throws punch at Big Z, leads to ejections

    Mar 30, 2011, 10:52 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    We already told you what happened, but you should see it for yourself (via our friends at CSNWashington.com) Zydrunas Ilgauskas had the ball in the high post guarded by John Wall (on a little scramble play, obviously that was not the regular matchup). Ilgauskas used his elbow to create a little space, Wall was trying…

  2. LeBron James says Derrick Rose is MVP

    derrick Rose bulls

    I’m not sure there’s really an MVP debate, at least one where the outcome is in doubt. Derrick Rose is going to win it. Like it or not. Complain it’s about the narrative and not the play, or counter Rose is clearly the man leading the best team in the game, make no mistake about…

  3. John Wall, Juwan Howard, Zydrunas Ilgauskas all ejected

    Wall_John

    John Wall, Juwan Howard, and Zydrunas Ilgauskas have all just been ejected from the Heat-Wizards game. The initial incident occurred when Ilgauskas was holding the ball in the high post. Wall was attempting to swipe at the ball, and Ilgauskas gave Wall two quick elbows to the face for his trouble. In retaliation, Wall fired…

  4. Noah to sit out Wednesday due to sprained ankle

    Joakim Noah

    UPDATE 7:46 pm: It’s official, Noah will sit out the game against the Wolves — where he would have been handy against Kevin Love — due to the sprained ankle. Kurt Thomas starts in his place. 2:27 pm: Because God forbid we have all the Bulls players fully healthy for any extended stretch… Joakim Noah…

  5. League sends last season’s financial data to union. Baby steps.

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    At this point, any little step towards the NBA owners and players union actually sitting down and having a serious conversation should be taken as a good sign. So, in that vein, we tell you that the owners have sent the union the league financials from last season, as Ken Berger at CBSSports.com reports. The…

  6. Should the “rip” move be legal?

    Mar 30, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Kevin Durant may be the nicest superstar in the NBA, and he certainly has the most squeaky-clean public image. He doesn’t say the wrong things, he’s a quiet assassin on the court, he’s young, he’s exciting to watch, and he plays for a small-market team with great fans. In fact, the only time you’ll ever…

  7. The good ol’ days: When John Salley got punched by teammates

    Mar 30, 2011, 5:10 PM EDT

    salley_bad_boys

    Turns out, the old Detroit Bad Boys were pretty bad. John Salley was being interviewed and telling stories over at Pistons.com (via Piston Powered) and he had some great tales. Including the time as a rookie he got punched by his own teammates in practice. “OK, now it’s the next day. Rick Mahorn and Sid…

  8. Elgin Baylor’s lawsuit against Donald Sterling shot down by jury

    Clippers Donald Sterling is still a despicable human being. A man with a laundry list of offenses of offenses from the serious (racial housing discrimination) to just screwing up his NBA team. This has not changed. But he has won key court battle. A jury Wednesday rejected a $2 million lawsuit brought by former Clippers…

  9. Spurs, Celtics slouching towards playoffs; count them out at your own peril

    Mar 30, 2011, 3:38 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    Back at the All-Star break, a Celtics vs. Spurs finals seemed like a good bet. Sure, it made the guys who count the profits at ABC/Disney nervous — you know they want Lakers/Heat, and they really don’t want the Spurs — but the Celtics and Spurs were playing the best basketball by far. That matchup…

  10. Video: Cooking for LeBron, he eats better than you

    Mar 30, 2011, 1:40 PM EDT

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    I love cooking shows. Love. Them. Honestly, when basketball isn’t on my television, it’s a cooking show. Maybe some cool old-school Iron Chef (from Japan, the American version is a poor imitation), maybe just Jamie Oliver cooking at home. I miss the Two Fat Ladies. As cooking videos go, this one is not going to…

  11. Carlos Boozer was Prince’s landlord. This is what it sounds like when Doves cry.

    Mar 30, 2011, 1:09 PM EDT

    Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival 2008 - Day 2

    So just we have the roles understood: Carlos Boozer plays the role of Ralph Furley the cranky landlord, and Prince plays Jack Tripper, the renter who has crazy shenanigans happening around him all the time. And since we’re talking Prince, no doubt there were plenty of rotating women to complete the Three’s Company circle. Turns…

  12. Grant Hill likes Phoenix but keeping his free agent options open

    Mar 30, 2011, 12:06 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Grant Hill is nearing retirement — and if there is one thing you can find plenty of in Phoenix it’s retirees. Warm, dry weather is easy on the joints, you know. Plus, lots of places you can have dinner at 5 and still make it home for Jeopardy. Hill will be a free agent at…

  13. Wizards’ rookie Booker done for season with crack in foot

    Mar 30, 2011, 11:38 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Washington Wizards

    Trevor Booker had developed into a fun little surprise in Washington. The rookie out of Clemson dropped 26 and 13 on Toronto a couple weeks ago and had a double-double against Denver earlier in the week. Plus he was just fun pounding away inside, which seemed a good balance with John Wall. And it looks…

  14. PBT Wednesday morning one liners

    Mar 30, 2011, 11:02 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Orlando Magic

    It’s cool because he gets to use the phrase “Magic Nuggets.” But Tom Ziller also has an interesting plan — what if the NBA did away with conferences and just took the best 16 teams and threw them in a bracket? Here’s what it looks like. And it looks pretty good. Eddy Rivera over at…

  15. Timberwolves Kevin Love expected to return Wednesday

    Mar 30, 2011, 10:26 AM EDT

    kevin love rebound

    After he injured his groin there was talk Kevin Love might shut it down for the season. Groins can linger, the Timberwolves were only playing for pride, why push it? But he’s pushed, and he practiced Tuesday and is expected to play Wednesday against the Bulls, he told the Star Tribune. “I feel good,” he…

    2011 NBA All-Star Game - Performances And Celebrities

    Jay-Z is a hoops fan, just with a lot more access than the rest of us. Because what doorman anywhere is stopping Jay-Z when he walks up? Like the doorman at an NCAA tournament game. After Kentucky’s win over North Carolina Sunday to send them to the Final Four, Jay-Z was in the locker room…

  17. Video: Watch Monta Ellis, Golden State force OT in OKC

    Mar 30, 2011, 8:51 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Golden State was down six points with 13 seconds to go. It was all but over. Until a Reggie Williams three. Then a terrible inbounds pass and Monta Ellis calmly ducking a player then draining another corner three. Suddenly everything looked like overtime. The Warriors lost in OT (although Ellis got a pretty good look…

  18. Report: Jalen Rose arrested for drunk driving

    17th Annual ESPY Awards - Red Carpet

    Jalen Rose landed in some hot water for comments surrounding his Fab 5 ESPN documentary, but he apparently has a more pressing problem to deal with. Rose was arrested for drunk driving in West Bloomfield Township, Michigan, back on March 11, the Associated Press reports. TMZ spoke with Rose’s Los Angeles based attorney Keith Davidson,…

    Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook

    What you missed while checking out what Super Mario would look like as a first-person shooter… The Cavaliers beating the Heat with an inside game was our game of the night. Thunder 115, Warriors 114 (OT): The Thunder had this one, up 10 inside five minutes and up six with 13 seconds to go. Just…

    The Maloof brothers now have done pretty much everything but drive the moving trucks up to the Kings offices. Tuesday night one of the final hurdles in the path of the Kings relocating to Anaheim was cleared when the Anaheim City Council unanimously approved a lease for an NBA tenant in the Honda Center and…
