  1. Stephen Curry heads list of NBA All-Star Game snubs

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry, sorry. It sucks. Every year there are a couple of guys right on the bubble, guys you can argue should have made the NBA All-Star Game as reserves voted in by the coaches, but didn’t make the cut. (If you have a problem with the starters, blame yourself — the fans vote those…

  2. Report: Lakers not looking to trade Dwight Howard. Yet.

    Jan 23, 2013, 10:20 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    We told you how the rumor mill had started — Dwight Howard trade talk is heating up everywhere. Except with the Lakers. They are not interested at all. Yet. The Lakers brought in Dwight Howard to be the latest in the long line of great centers to play for the organization and keeping him long…

  3. Andrew Bynum update: He went through shootaround (VIDEO)

    Jan 22, 2013, 10:42 AM EDT

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    After a whole lot of non-update updates about Andrew Bynum, finally something of substance — plus a Sixers training equipment update. Andrew Bynum went through a shootaround and says he is not feeling any pain, he told CSNWashington.com. “My knees feel good and I’m not feeling any pain, so it’s all good,” Bynum said. That’s…

  4. Nuggets’ Mozgov thinks he could be traded by deadline

    Jan 15, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Timofey Mozgov is out of George Karl’s rotation in Denver. He has played in just two of the team’s last five games and in the two he played he got a total of 14 minutes. Combine that with him being in the last year of his contract and Mozgov being 7’1” and you have the…

  5. Don’t look for Sixers to make moves at trade deadline

    Jan 14, 2013, 8:53 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76er Bynum walks past a teammate before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Toronto Raptors in Philadelphia

    Philadelphia general manager Tony DiLeo doesn’t know really what cards he’s been dealt. Last summer he made a bold move — he shipped out Andre Iguodala and rebuilt the team around Andrew Bynum. There are not many athletic, true centers in the league and Philly landed itself one. Bynum averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds…

  6. Andrew Bynum walks out on court, takes shots. Standing still, but it’s a start. (VIDEO)

    Jan 14, 2013, 3:26 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Only with Andrew Bynum in Philadelphia would a guy walking out on the court and taking a couple stand-still jumpers, working up a couple of beads of sweat, merit a celebration. But Bynum was the guy Philly was excited to see play this summer, the real center they went and traded Andre Iguodala for (in…

  7. Report: Sixers explored trade for Thunder’s Eric Maynor

    Jan 8, 2013, 8:59 AM EDT

    Eric Maynor

    The one position you would think the Philadelphia 76ers are set is point guard — Jrue Holiday has taken a huge step forward and is a borderline All-Star this season. But Philly apparently was looking for some depth there, tweets John Mitchell of the Philadelphia Inquirer. According to a source with the knowledge of the…

  8. Andrew Bynum says he is progressing, running is “coming soon” (VIDEO)

    Jan 7, 2013, 6:58 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    I know you all couldn’t wait for another Andrew Bynum update that is pretty much a non-update, so finally here it is. Bynum said that soon he could start doing some running, taking stand-still shots on the court and other steps toward recovery. The video is above, but for those of you who prefer the…

  9. Three Stars of the night: Getting your team wins against elite

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:58 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There were so many people who could have made three stars of the night tonight we could have done 10 stars of the night. But, for the sake of my sanity (such as it is) we are keeping it at three. So how do you separate the top three? It’s not just numbers, but who…

  10. Steve Nash says Sixers Jrue Holiday should be an All-Star

    Jan 2, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Jrue Holiday

    Is Jrue Holiday an All-Star player? Holiday wants to be and after he dropped 26 points and 10 assists on the Lakers Tuesday night Steve Nash told the Los Angeles Times he thinks Holiday should be. (Insert your own joke about playing like an All-Star against Steve Nash’s defense here.) “Obviously they’re a different team…

  11. Top 10 NBA dunks of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    WIth 2012 officially in the books, it’s time to look back on the top 10 dunks of the past year. And just as we all expected, Byron Mullens makes the list and kicks things off at number 10. Yeah, I don’t know either. But his flying jam down the lane after getting his own rebound…

    JaVale McGee

    As we count down to the new year, let’s relive some of the lighter NBA moments of 2012 that we were fortunate enough to experience. At 10, we have Lamar Odom saying he’s with the Lakers in his first season with the Clippers. Wishful thinking, my friend. At 9, we have Omer Asik tipping the…

  14. No changes atop latest All-Star voting, but Lin and Bosh could sneak in

    Dec 27, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    NBA fans around the globe love Kobe Bryant. Stunning, I know. The latest update on the NBA All-Star voting is out and there are no changes among the starters for either conference — but it’s starting to get close for a few guys. What is different is that Kobe moved past LeBron James as the…

  15. No real change: Andrew Bynum can increase activity but no return timetable

    Dec 21, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    It’s another non-news update for Andrew Bynum. You think we all would be used to that by now, but Bynum himself had said a new MRI and meeting with a specialist afterwards on Thursday would give some direction to what was next. That update is Bynum can start to increase his activity level, however there…

  16. Jrue Holiday returns, says he will play Friday vs. Atlanta

    Dec 21, 2012, 12:11 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday stretches past Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett in Game 6

    Jrue Holiday — who has been the focal point of the Philadelphia offense for most of the season — has missed the last four games with a sprained foot. That he’s not totally sure how he got. Nonetheless the result has been four 76ers losses. The good new is he and Evan Turner told media…

  17. Jrue Holiday likely out, what Sixers really need is free throws

    Dec 18, 2012, 3:37 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    After taking some shots at shootaround Tuesday morning, Jrue Holiday told Dei Lynam of CSNPhilly.com that his injured foot hurt more than it did on Monday morning. That was the morning after he worked out before the Sixers lost to the Lakers. Nothing is official, but draw your own conclusions on him playing Tuesday night…

  19. NBA Power Rankings: Right now, Clippers are second best in West

    Dec 17, 2012, 2:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin and Chris Paul run off the bench to celebrate a basket against the Toronto Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    What we see in December is not always a great predictor of what we see in the playoffs, but the Clippers look very good lately. Better than their more talked about roommate in Los Angeles. 1. Thunder (19-4, Last week ranked No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row. I still think…

  20. Quote of the Day: Like all of us, Kobe is confused by Bynum’s hair

    Dec 17, 2012, 10:05 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum hair

    “I don’t know what he’s doing with that perm.” —Kobe Bryant‘s comments on Andrew Bynum, via Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register. The comments came after the Lakers win Sunday evening over the 76ers. It was also after Bynum suggested playing with Kobe stunted his growth as a player and might do the same…

  21. Andrew Bynum has advice for Dwight Howard: Get used to not touching the ball with Kobe around

    Dec 17, 2012, 8:03 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum

    Dwight Howard tried to avoid talking about Andrew Bynum when the topic came up, and what he did say what right out of the “NBA cliché handbook.” Bynum on the other hand had no problem talking about Howard and the Lakers. He says he understands Howard’s challenges, because it’s not easy getting used to playing…

  22. Dwight Howard shuts down Andrew Bynum questions in advance of Lakers next game against Sixers

    Dec 15, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Andrew Bynum

    The storylines are predictable anytime one team is set to face another that features one of its former players. The new player will be asked about the old one, and that’s especially true when those players were All-Stars who were swapped for one another in a deal that anyone would classify as nothing short of…

  23. Jrue Holiday out with sprained foot

    Dec 14, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    HOLIDAY_JRUE

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday isn’t sure how he sprained his foot, but we should be able to safely eliminate “bowling injury” from the list. Holiday has been an absolute workhorse for the 76ers this season, leading the team in scoring (19), assists (9), and minutes (38.5). That type of court time is creeping…

  24. Nothing shocking here: Kobe, LeBron lead All-Star ballot early returns

    Dec 13, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    We don’t exactly need Nate Silver to break down these voting returns and trends — the players in the lead early in the NBA All-Star balloting almost always stay on top. Occasionally guys close small gaps, but generally what you see now is what you get. In which case — good job public. No glaring…

  25. More Sixers injury woes? Holiday to have MRI on foot.

    Dec 13, 2012, 1:40 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    Haven’t the basketball gods already had enough fun with Sixers, dealt the enough of an injury woe for one season in the knees of Andrew Bynum? Apparently not. After racking up some heavy minutes recently, Jrue Holiday is getting an MRI on his sore foot and it sounds like he could miss at least the…
