  1. It’s safe to watch Hornets again — Davis cleared to return to team Friday

    Nov 9, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis, Monty Williams

    If you want to know just how much the Hornets missed Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers in the lineup, go back and New Orleans’ loss to Philadelphia from Wednesday. If you can stomach it. The Hornets scored 62 points total and had more turnovers (24) than made baskets (23). So this is good news —…

  2. Carmelo Anthony delivers food and supplies to hurricane victims

    US forward Carmelo Anthony celebrates af

    The NBA mandates a certain amount of community involvement from its teams and players through the league’s NBA Cares program. It’s a solid way for the athletes to give back to communities in need, without having to go through the trouble to organize these efforts themselves. It’s even better when a player, especially a superstar…

  3. Don’t blame Princeton. If Lakers turn it around it’s all about turnovers.

    Nov 9, 2012, 11:39 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Don’t blame Princeton. National pundits and Lakers fans are hammering Lakers coach Mike Brown and the Princeton offense — Charles Barkley said he wants his accountants from Princeton, not his offense. It’s to the point Brown’s job could be threatened if the Lakers don’t have a strong home stand. All this even though it was…

  4. Report: Mike Brown’s job in ‘immediate jeopardy’ if Lakers upcoming homestand is unsuccessful

    Nov 9, 2012, 11:10 AM EDT

    Mike Brown, Kobe Bryant

    UPDATE, Nov. 9 1:21 p.m. ET: Welp. The Lakers’ 1-4 start has had fans clamoring for Mike Brown to be replaced as head coach, and with somewhat good reason. While the team has given Brown a public vote of confidence, it seems that the time for being patient will come to an end should the…

  5. LaMarcus Aldridge doesn’t think he’s shooting too many jumpers, but thanks for asking

    Nov 9, 2012, 10:43 AM EDT

    Lamarcus Aldridge Wesley Matthews

    The Blazers have a new head coach, a lower overall talent level, and a couple of rookies who they’re going to get as much experience as possible in what is slated as a rebuilding year in Portland by just about everyone’s standards. The team still has Nicolas Batum, Wesley Matthews and LaMarcus Aldridge, of course,…

  6. Really, Lakers fans? Mike Brown’s son gets death threat.

    Nov 9, 2012, 10:26 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike Brown

    You keep hearing that Lakers fans are really freaking out about the team’s 1-4 start and how they are blaming Mike Brown for it all. He’s not Phil Jackson, he brought in the Princeton offense (at Kobe Bryant’s urging, but still) and he has a track record of not being able to take a young…

  7. New Celtics learn the hard way: Driving in Boston sucks

    Nov 9, 2012, 9:04 AM EDT

    boston gridlock

    If you’re not from Boston and you visit there (and you should), I have two words for you: Mass Transit. Take the T. Walk, Boston is a very walkable city. Take cabs. Take the dang Duckboat. But think twice about driving. I’m from Los Angeles and I don’t like driving in Boston. There are a…

  8. Heat’s ball movement has team talking hockey assists

    Nov 9, 2012, 8:41 AM EDT

    Heat forward James looks to pass under pressure from Celtics forward Bass during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    LeBron James gets the ball on the wing and drives, blowing past his man and toward the lane and quickly the rotations start and the defense collapses on him. LeBron draws the defense in then kicks it out to Dwyane Wade who quickly makes the extra pass to Ray Allen in the left corner. He…

  9. Video: Meyers Leonard was throwing it down on Clippers

    Nov 9, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    You don’t get a Los Angeles Clippers game without some monster dunks. We know what to expect, and we got it… From Meyers Leonard. Wait, what? Yup, it was Trail Blazers rookie Meyers Leonard who got four of his eight points on the night with powerful dunks. I’m not sure this game was exactly a…

  10. Three Stars of the Night: Two Clippers and a certain someone from OKC

    Nov 9, 2012, 2:30 AM EDT

    jamal crawford clips

    Only two games on the slate on TNT Thursday, but we still managed to find three stellar performances nonetheless. And they all had dominant offensive performances. Third Star: DeAndre Jordan (21 points on 8-of-10 shooting, 8 rebounds, in 28 minutes) I was a bit disgusted with the way DeAndre Jordan handled himself on the bench…

  11. Clippers 103, Blazers 90: DeAndre Jordan and Jamal Crawford get the job done

    Nov 9, 2012, 1:52 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    After dismantling the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, the Clippers trip to Portland the very next night would seem to be a vacation by comparison — and it certainly started out that way. But Portland fought back from a 26-point first-half deficit to get within four in the final period, before L.A. stabilized and pulled…

  12. Oklahoma City 97, Chicago 91: Kevin Durant cares little for your defense

    Nov 8, 2012, 11:34 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    For roughly 45 minutes of gametime, the Oklahoma City Thunder looked awful. The Thunder led the NBA in turnovers last year, and in front of a national audience tonight, they showed why they might do it again this year, coughing the ball up 22 times on the evening. There were silly plays and overly ambitious…

  13. Video: Kevin Durant does a great Dirk Nowitzki impression to seal Thunder’s win over Bulls

    Nov 8, 2012, 11:04 PM EDT

    Thunder's Durant is guarded by Bulls' Deng during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    The Bulls had an answer for what the Thunder wanted to do offensively for most of the night, but ultimately, there was no answer for this. Kevin Durant drained this one-legged fadeaway — Dirk Nowitzki style, from 17 feet out with 19.5 seconds left — to seal the 97-91 win for OKC. Chicago came into…

  14. Marcus Camby to make season debut for Knicks

    Nov 8, 2012, 10:39 PM EDT

    Knicks Media Day Basketball

    The Knicks haven’t shown any signs of a team struggling to deal with injuries. On the way to a 3-0 start that has New York as the league’s lone remaining undefeated team, the Knicks have allowed an NBA-best 85.3 points per game, and have shown similar success on the defensive end even when adjusting for…

  15. Nets to be without Gerald Wallace for Friday vs. Magic

    Nov 8, 2012, 9:45 PM EDT

    Gerald Wallace

    The Nets really missed Gerald Wallace on Wednesday night — if you’re going to be without your best wing defender for a night the Heat are not the team you want to face. The Nets will again be without Wallace on Friday night due to the same sprained ankle, the team announced Friday. The good…

  16. Rajon Rondo doesn’t like anyone, has no time for friends

    Nov 8, 2012, 9:37 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo is in the top tier of the league’s most competitive players, so the comments he made that we’re about to bring you shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Rondo is traditionally very quiet with the media, so when he talks about things like his competitive drive or how he values his teammates…

  17. Thomas Robinson says all the right things after receiving two-game suspension

    Nov 8, 2012, 8:26 PM EDT

    Thomas Robinson

    The elbow from Kings’ rookie Thomas Robinson on Wednesday — you remember, the one that connected with the throat of Jonas Jerebko and earned Robinson a well-deserved two-game suspension — was brutal and unnecessary, and has no place at all in a basketball game played at the professional level. Thankfully, after receiving his punishment for…

  18. Kobe reacts after watching clip of his ‘death stare’ at Mike Brown (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2012, 7:41 PM EDT

    Mike Brown, Kobe Bryant

    After the Lakers practiced in El Segundo on Thursday, Kobe Bryant was asked about his supposed “death stare” at head coach Mike Brown that came as L.A. was getting rolled in Utah at the hands of the Jazz for the team’s fourth loss in five tries to open the season. The glare is above, and…

  19. Wade, LeBron say Brooklyn now more attractive to free agents

    Nov 8, 2012, 6:54 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Now that the Nets are in Brooklyn, do they stand a chance of landing a superstar free agent? LeBron James and Dwyane Wade said yes. Could they land LeBron or Wade in 2014 when the Heat stars can opt out of their deals? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Wade and LeBron both told…

  20. Thunder unveil new alternate uniforms

    Nov 8, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    okc alt uniforms

    The Thunder have arguably one of the worst logos in the league, especially when contrasting it with how exciting the product is on the court. The colors aren’t bad, but the logo the team went with seems like it was chosen from a contest between third-graders to submit their best designs. There’s a new uniform…
