  1. Monday And-1 Links: SNL cast member Taran Killam has NBA Jams arcade game in his office

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than we loved the Breaking Bad finale (and we liked that a lot)….…

  2. Ten free agents still out on the market

    Sep 3, 2013, 9:16 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls shooting guard Hamilton questions a call against the Charlotte Bobcats during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    At this point, the free agent cupboard is pretty bare, and a number of teams have filled out their rosters anyway. Let’s just be honest — if you’re still on the free agent market there is a reason. Still, there are a few teams still looking to add player 14/15 to the roster off minimum…

  3. John Wall’s season turned around after Emeka Okafor got in his face

    Apr 10, 2013, 5:54 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

    Once John Wall returned to the Wizards lineup following knee surgery during training camp, you knew it would take a little while for him to find his groove. But it took a little more than that — it took a veteran getting in his face. Wall told the story to the Wall Street Journal. It…

  4. Gibson sprains knee, Bulls lose to Wizards. Not a good night for Chicago.

    Apr 2, 2013, 11:10 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    If the Bulls had designs on moving out of the six seed — and you know Tom Thibodeau wants to win every game with a white hot passion — this was not a good night. First, the Bulls fell to the Wizards 90-86 in a game where Chicago had no answer for John Wall (27…

  5. Report: John Wall expected to make season debut in the next two weeks

    Jan 6, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Washington Wizards

    The Wizards, at 4-27 on the season, will take any good news they can get. This would most certainly qualify. John Wall has been practicing with the team and is expected to make his season debut within the next two weeks, according to a report from Chris Mannix of SI.com. Wall has been out the…

  6. Wizards sign point guards Shelvin Mack, Garrett Temple

    Dec 26, 2012, 10:26 AM EDT

    George Hill, Shelvin Mack

    The biggest problem with the Wizards recent moves at point guard is that it does not involve the name John Wall. Until it does, the Wizards are spinning their wheels, stuck in the mud with the worst offense in the NBA. Washington did make some changes at point guard — Shaun Livingston is out (he’s…

  7. Wizards waive Barron, Livingston; Look for another move soon.

    Dec 23, 2012, 3:31 PM EDT

    Shaun Livingston Deron Williams

    The Wizards made a move that in and of itself would barely ripple the NBA waters — on Sunday they waived guard Shaun Livingston and center Earl Barron. Both were on non-guaranteed contracts. Yawn. Both guys saw very limited minutes and there contributions were minimal. (For the Lakers fans and others that will inevitably tweet…

  8. Wittman says John Wall is “weeks” away from practicing

    Dec 10, 2012, 4:07 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    The original timeline had John Wall back on the court for the Washington Wizards somewhere around Thanksgiving. Now we are getting to the point you need to start your Christmas shopping and he is not on the practice court, he’s not running, he’s nowhere near back. When the Wizards are asked about a timeline, they…

  9. Wizards beat Heat because they care while Heat don’t (about defense)

    Dec 4, 2012, 10:44 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Miami has been coasting this season and it shows on defense. Yes they were 12-3, but they had the 19th ranked defense in the NBA on points per possession (via Hoopdata). They play a style based on aggression, on using their athleticism and length to pressure you into mistakes. If you play that going half-speed,…

  10. The streak is dead — Wizards win first game of season. But they made it hard on themselves.

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:34 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Washington Wizards

    Break up the Wizards. Okay, maybe we’re not there yet. But Washington’s 12-game losing streak to start the season came to an end at home with an 84-82 win over Portland. They did it with 19 points from Jordan Crawford off the bench, with Trevor Ariza being efficient (14 points on 6-of-9 shooting) and with…

  11. Could 0-12 Wizards reach NBA record of 0-18 start?

    Nov 27, 2012, 8:48 AM EDT

    Trevor Booker, Martell Webster, Trevor Ariza

    It is the NBA record for early-season futility — in 2009 the Lawrence Frank coached Nets started the season 0-18 (Frank was gone after 16 of those, Kiki Vandewighe came in). It was ugly and bested the 1988-89 Heat and 1998-99 Clippers who had started 0-17. It was just part of the history the Nets…

  12. Wizards sign Shaun Livingston, cut Jannero Pargo

    Nov 15, 2012, 5:03 PM EDT

    Shaun Livingston Deron Williams

    John Wall is still out and the idea that he could be back around Thanksgiving is about as done as you’re turkey is going to be next Thursday — there is no timetable for his return. The Wizards had brought in Jannero Pargo to help out with Wall out, but they have changed course on…

  13. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  14. Deron Williams, A.J. Price have some words (and a push)

    Oct 16, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Brooklyn Nets

    A.J. Price was back in his native New York (he’s a Long Island guy) last night as the starting point guard of the Washington Wizards. He’s only starting because John Wall is injured, but he was starting nonetheless and he had some of friends in the Barclays’ Arena in Brooklyn for a preseason game against…

  15. Notes from Sunday’s NBA preseason games

    Oct 8, 2012, 2:46 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    It doesn’t matter who won or lost, so while the scores are listed below just consider those just a little headline so you know who we are talking about. What we want to know in preseason is who stood out — like Eric Bledsoe and Ty Lawson did in the Clippers/Nuggets game Saturday in Las…

  16. Friday And-1 links: Kobe misses practice, other camp notes

    Oct 5, 2012, 9:26 PM EDT

    Lakers guard Kobe Bryant smiles during an interview at NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

  17. Wizards sign Pargo to come in while Wall is out

    Oct 1, 2012, 11:53 AM EDT

    Jannero pargo AP

    It was expected the Wizards were doing to look around for some depth at the point guard position with John Wall out for a couple months (let us hope it is only a couple months), but they moved faster than had been expected. The Wizards have signed Jannero Pargo to a one-year deal, his agent…

  18. With John Wall out for a while, what is Plan B in Washington?

    Sep 29, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    John Wall, Wizards, Heat

    By Thanksgiving, maybe Washington can get back to what they pictured their offense would look like this season — John Wall running the break, Wall passing to Nene on the block, Wall driving and kicking out to Trevor Ariza, and of course Wall scoring a lot. But due to a stress fracture on his patella…

  19. NBA Season Preview: Indiana Pacers

    Sep 25, 2012, 7:55 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Tim Duncan

    Last season: The Pacers made moves to become a top-tier team in the East and they worked out. Roy Hibbert and Paul George both took some big steps forward, while David West added the consistent scorer they were looking for and George Hill provided balance with Darren Collison, though the two didn’t work well together.…

  20. Wizards sign point guard A.J. Price to one-year deal

    Jul 24, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    A.J. Price

    A.J. Price played well as a rookie in Indiana, but his play slipped and he was squeezed out of minutes in Indiana as George Hill became the point guard the team wanted. Now, Price is getting a second chance to prove his worth as a backup. He has inked a one-year deal to play with…

  21. Pacers showing trade interest in Jamal Crawford, Chris Kaman

    Mar 8, 2012, 9:24 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    Indiana is a team you can expect to be busy around the trade deadline. There are a couple of reasons, for one they have a ton of cap space so they can take on contracts and not have to send back equal value (something teams trying to shed payroll covet). Secondly, they are a good…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls keep winning without Rose

    Feb 17, 2012, 8:07 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Garnett and Chicago Bulls' Boozer react to a call during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while you were fascinated with the photo of a shark eating another shark…. Bulls 89, Celtics 80: The Bulls are now 3-1 without Derrick Rose and, as they have through this run (and really the last two seasons), they won this one with defense. Chicago held Boston to 39.7 percent shooting overall…

  23. A.J. Price injures knee, will undergo surgery, out 'a couple of months'

    May 23, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    So the good news is that there are more embarrassing ways to get injured. Snowboarding. Moped accidents. Slipping in the shower. But A.J. Price, who was coming off a very promising rookie season, has suffered a significant injury doing something which shouldn’t lead to an impact on his career. Price was injured during a celebrity…
