  1. Dwight Howard trade still in neutral

    Jan 9, 2012, 11:07 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Omer Asik

    I’d be surprised if Dwight Howard is traded before the All-Star game the last weekend of February. That is if he gets moved at all — Howard said he may not to Yahoo Sports. “I don’t think they are going to do anything right now because we’re winning,” Howard said after a 104-97 victory over…

  2. Deron Williams says Nets offense “sucks.” He just noticed?

    Jan 9, 2012, 9:59 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets' Williams, Humphries and Brooks sit on the bench during their loss to Miami Heat in their NBA basketball game in Newark

    Deron Williams has noticed what the rest of us have known for nine games now — the Nets are terrible on offense. Here is the quote, via the New York Post. “The offense sucks,” he said. “It’s not very good right now. We’re not playing good. We’re not shooting good, I’m not shooting good, we’re…

  3. Video: Check out Charles Barkley on Saturday Night Live

    Jan 9, 2012, 8:36 AM EST

    Shaquille O'Neal

    In case you have a life and were out Saturday night (and forgot to set your DVR), Charles Barkley was at 30 Rock hosting Saturday Night Live. Since you were out having fun, we thought you should see the highlights, like him making fun of Shaq above. Although, best part of that skit is Bill…

  4. Michael Redd likely to see his first action with the Suns later this week

    Jan 9, 2012, 8:30 AM EST

    michael-redd-phx

    Michael Redd signed with the Suns back on Dec. 29, and at the time, the message was clear that there would be no rush in getting him to the court. But after 10 days of workouts with the team, it appears that his time is almost here. “I think he’s almost to the point where…

  5. Rashard Lewis fights with Sam Cassell, refuses to play

    Jan 9, 2012, 7:58 AM EST

    Rarshard Lewis jumper

    How could the 0-8 Washington Wizards come off as more dysfunctional? Well…. Rashard Lewis got into a pregame fight with assistant coach Sam Cassell and refused to play in the Wizards loss to Minnesota Sunday, reports to CSNWashington.com. He was not on the Wizards bench during the game (officially because of a sore knee, but…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Spurs look old

    Jan 9, 2012, 1:33 AM EST

    Tony Parker, Kendrick Perkins

    What you missed while watching Tim Tebow resurrect after three games…. Lakers 90, Grizzlies 82: This was our game of the night, where the Lakers flaws are showing and it doesn’t matter. Thunder 108, Spurs 96: Both teams were tired — third game in three nights for Oklahoma City, fourth game in five nights for…

  7. Warts and all, the Lakers still better than Grizzlies Sunday

    Jan 9, 2012, 1:18 AM EST

    Marc Gasol, Pau Gasol, Gasol brothers

    The Laker have flaws. Unless it improves, their point guard play is going to come back to haunt them. Same with their depth issues. That night was not Sunday night against Memphis. The Lakers deficiencies were on display but could not be exploited by a Memphis team trying to find its way without Zach Randolph.…

  8. Jerry Sloan hints he may return to coaching

    Jan 8, 2012, 8:43 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    Jerry Sloan is a legend. After so many years in the NBA, at some point you’re in it so long, it’s impossible to walk away. And it would appear that after a year of being away from the game, Sloan is re-engaged and ready to get back on the horse. From SI.com: So as the…

  9. Jason Kidd out at least two more games with back pain

    Jan 8, 2012, 7:59 PM EST

    Jason Kidd

    Finally the Dallas Mavericks seemed to have found a groove, winning three of their last four including Saturday night over what is left of the Hornets. A win they got with Delonte West starting in place of Jason Kidd. Which is something they had better get used to as he will be out another two…

  10. Otis Smith says nothing has changed with Dwight’s situation. Oh, and he’s receiving threats from fans.

    Jan 8, 2012, 5:39 PM EST

    Otis Smith, Orlando Magic

    Orlando General Manager Otis Smith sat down with the Orlando Sentinel this weekend, and as far as Dwight Howard‘s situation, which rumors had suggested Howard having rescinded his trade request, uh… yeah, status quo: Sentinel: Has anything changed with Dwight’s situation? Smith: No. Sentinel: Has he pulled back the trade request? Smith: No. Sentinel: Has…

  11. Update: Eric Maynor out for season with knee injury

    Jan 8, 2012, 5:26 PM EST

    Russell Westbrook, Eric Maynor

    UPDATE 5:26 pm: The Thunder have announced that Eric Maynor is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate that will require surgery. After watching the video below, that should not seem like a huge shock. It was nasty. This is a blow to the Thunder. Sure, Russell Westbrook is young and can play…

  12. Report: Wolves set to do the obvious, offer Kevin Love max extension

    Jan 8, 2012, 2:39 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    The timing is perfect. For the first time, the organization looks to be headed in the right direction. For the first time, he has a star next to him. For the first time, they have a coach who loves him. For the first time, the Wolves can capitalize on momentum, forget the mistakes of the…

  13. Delonte West can’t attend White House ceremony, goes on Twitter rant against media

    Jan 8, 2012, 10:33 AM EST

    Delonte West pushing car

    Wow, there hasn’t really been a lot of Delonte West news this year, has there? Things have been pretty quiet. Yup, guess he’s put all that drama behi… oh. OK, maybe not. So first off, a pretty good quote from West, who it turns out thanks to his weapons charge from several years ago, you…

  14. Someone call Ersan Ilyasova’s mom. He’s been Blake Griffin’d.

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Blake Griffin hadn’t really had that dunk yet. Not really. I mean, he’s had some nice ones. Some great ones, really. But not the “Oh, my dear Lord, what just happened to that young man who Blake Griffin dunked on?” Not the “That dude got dunked on so hard it left a black mark on…

  15. Beasley out three games with foot sprain

    Jan 7, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    The AP reports that Michael Beasley will miss three games with a foot sprain he sustained in Minnesota’s Friday night loss to the Cavaliers. Presumably, Derrick Williams will start in his place. Beasley has taken a huge step backwards this season after a promising 2011 campaign. He’s shooting just 39 percent from the field and…

  16. Grizzlies’ Selby charged with misdemeanor marijuana offense

    Jan 7, 2012, 6:12 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Memphis Grizzlies

    From the Memphis Commercial-Appeal: Grizzlies rookie guard Josh Selby is facing a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge after police found probable cause during an Oct. 5 incident at the University of Maryland. The 20-year-old Selby has been summoned to appear in a Maryland district court Jan. 25. “I have no comment about it,” Selby said. “It…

  17. The Imperative: Kobe Bryant and the variance of injury

    Jan 7, 2012, 4:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant chews on his jersey during NBA game in Los Angeles

    The imperative is an element of urgency based off of observation with some evidence to back it up. But like most anything in the NBA, the imperative is rarely black and white, cut and dried. Basically I’m hedging in case Bryant averages 35 points per game over the next seven games.  Kobe Bryant scored 39…

  18. Suns head coach Gentry cares not for your three-point field goal defensive statistics

    Jan 7, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    nash-gentry-preview

    The Phoenix Suns, just like most teams in the league, pay a fair amount of attention to all kinds of statistical data. And, just like most teams in the league, they have their favorites. It’s safe to say that three-point field goal defensive statistics are not one of them. Before Friday night’s win over the…

  19. Weekend Observations: 25 things from the week that was

    Jan 7, 2012, 2:16 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.  1. Ramon Sessions is not shooting well, but he’s drawing a lot of contact and his assists are up this year. He’s got a 19.5 PER and can’t get over 25 minutes per game on the Cavaliers. He’s much more of…

  20. DeMarcus Cousins is only responsible for being DeMarcus Cousins

    Jan 7, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins Royals

    We tend to treat NBA players as action figures. Fun to look at and watch do whatever actions they do, ultimately hollow, and easily classifiable. “This one is a hero.” “This one is a villain.” The problem is that these are people. I’m not imploring you to be more considerate of their feelings; that’s a…
