    Apr 14, 2014, 2:14 PM EDT

  9. Bobcats use “Big Al’s Paint” to promote Al Jefferson for All-NBA Teams

    Apr 3, 2014, 7:56 PM EDT

    Bobcats Al Jefferson paint

    Charlotte was clever in pimping Jefferson for the All-NBA teams (and he should get consideration).

  10. PBT Power Rankings: Spurs running away at top, but a new team in cellar

    Mar 31, 2014, 1:00 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

  11. Wednesday NBA grades: The Indiana Pacers we remember reappeared

    Mar 27, 2014, 3:33 AM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while hating on the idea of Monopoly “house rules”…. Indiana Pacers. It wasn’t pretty, but what mattered was the fight in the team. And the win over Miami, but more than that the fight it took from them to get there. Indiana had been slogging through the season,…

  12. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs, Clippers are your clear top two

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Derrick Favors

  13. Paul Millsap on Utah Jazz fans: ‘They should boo me’

    Mar 10, 2014, 12:13 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    As a member of the Jazz, Al Jefferson once encouraged Utah fans to boo their own team. When he returned to Utah in December as a Charlotte Bobcat, Jazz fans cheered him. Now, another former Utah big man, Paul Millsap, is encouraging Jazz fans to boo him when he returns with the Atlanta Hawks. Paul…

  14. Is Carmelo Anthony’s smart play to opt in and play out contract with Knicks?

    Mar 7, 2014, 5:46 PM EDT

    New York Knicks vs Miami Heat

    According to every reliable source, Carmelo Anthony is going to opt out of the final year of his contract this season and look either to re-sign a five-year deal with the Knicks or move on to another team to be part of a contender. If Anthony wants to jump ship and go somewhere like oft-mentioned…

  15. Wednesday night NBA grades: Another night, another Joakim Noah triple-double

    Mar 6, 2014, 3:31 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Detroit Pistons

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while suing a casino for letting you bet big while drunk…. Joakim Noah, Chicago Bulls. Friend of this site Coach Nick called watching Noah play “coach porn” — he plays with a high IQ, he is focused on defense, he can pass, he moves off…

  16. Dominique Wilkins is not impressed with LeBron’s 61-point performance

    Mar 4, 2014, 8:02 PM EDT

    Reebok Pump 20th Anniversary

    Dominique Wilkins was an elite NBA scorer who played 15 seasons and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006. As someone who played the game and was able to take it over at times, his opinion holds a certain amount of weight — and Wilkins wasn’t all that impressed with the 61 points…

  17. Monday night NBA grades: Masked LeBron James is a bad mutha (Shut your mouth)

    Mar 4, 2014, 3:37 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats vs Miami Heat

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Lionel Messi be Lionel Messi…. Masked LeBron James, Miami Heat. The rest of the teams may petition the NBA asking that LeBron not be allowed to wear any mask again. In the three games since coming back and wearing a mask he is…

  18. Serge Ibaka sends Al Jefferson’s shot into the crowd

    Mar 3, 2014, 1:24 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Oklahoma City Thunder

    That’s an emphatic block. Al Jefferson has more post moves than you can count, but Serge Ibaka was ready for this one and blocked the shot. Hard. I mean it only went into the first row because he had to send it deep across the court first. That’s as big a block as you will…

  19. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  20. Charlotte upgrades backcourt depth, trades for Gary Neal, Ridnour from Bucks for Sessions

    Feb 20, 2014, 1:18 PM EDT

    Gary Neal Bucks

    Charlotte may not have planned to be in the playoff picture before the season started, but now that they are they want to stay there. Their home-and-home sweep of the Pistons the last two nights was a good start on that road, the Bobcats now have a 2.5 game cushion over the Pistons (3 games…

  21. Tuesday night NBA grades: Carmelo Anthony loves playing in New Orleans

    Feb 20, 2014, 5:29 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Orleans Pelicans

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while worrying about our national clown shortage… Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks. New York picked up a win in New Orleans because of Carmelo Anthony (who seems to play well in that city as he had monster numbers in the All-Star Game, too). He poured…

  22. Tuesday night NBA grades: LeBron had no All-Star weekend hangover

    Feb 19, 2014, 2:29 AM EDT

    Heat Mavericks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while listening to Sir David Attenborough narrate curling for the BBC as if it were Planet Earth…. LeBron James, Miami Heat. A lot of us — players and some of the media (myself included, damn Sazerac) — have been fighting off a post New Orleans…

  23. Pau Gasol to Charlotte? That’s not likely, nor is any other Pau Gasol trade

    Feb 18, 2014, 12:34 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak is trying. He doesn’t want to lose Pau Gasol for nothing. The Lakers are talking to teams about moving Gasol at the trade deadline. However, finding a team that wants to rent a guy making $19.3 million (he is a free agent after this season) and give the Lakers anything of…

  24. Monday night NBA grades: Time to stop shoveling dirt on Anthony Bennett

    Feb 12, 2014, 3:09 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking this may be the best soccer goal celebration ever…. Anthony Bennett, Cleveland Cavaliers. You don’t know how a draft pick is going to pan out for three years. You just don’t. Some guys start fast but never really develop beyond that (Tyreke Evans,…

  25. The Extra Pass: The Minnesota Timberwolves are on the clock

    Feb 11, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    10 days before the trade deadline. 30 games left in the season. One contract year remaining. To say this is one of the most important time frames in the history of the Minnesota Timberwolves franchise isn’t overly dramatic or hyperbolic. It’s reality. Minnesota has never won a championship. 25 years, no rings, and an overall…
