    Mar 30, 2011, 11:49 PM EST

    Reebok Pump 20th Anniversary

    UPDATE  11:49 pm: The attacker turns out to be a former NBA referee (1997-2001), but apparently this was about money allegedly owed. Isn’t it always? From the Atlanta Journal Constitution: Rashan S. Michel, 36, was arrested and charged with one count of simple battery following the incident, Officer K.Y. Jones with Atlanta police told the…

  2. Joe Johnson day-to-day with thumb injury

    Mar 27, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams, Atlanta Hawks

    Joe Johnson suffered a sprained thumb in the Hawks’ playoff-clinching win over the Nets Saturday night and will miss Sunday’s game in Cleveland at least while being evaluated. Afterwards, Johnson was pretty clear on the fact he wouldn’t be rushing back from injury this late in the season, especially after clinching the playoffs. “Maybe if…

  3. Heat’s Anthony breaks nose in two places, will not miss time

    JAnthony_jumper

    Joel Anthony thinks he’s a hockey player. The Heat’s shot blocking center off the bench (the Heat have about 48 centers on the bench at last count) broke his nose in two when Miami faced Atlanta after being head-butted by Zaza Pachulia, reports Michael Wallace of ESPN on twitter. Pachulia head butted Wallace and caused…

  4. Video: C.J. Watson does his best Derrick Rose imitation at rim

    Mar 23, 2011, 12:58 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    Derrick Rose has an ability to knife through the defense and find a way to get off a shot when none seems to exist that is second to none. Bulls backup point guard C.J. Watson has been watching that all season and apparently it has rubbed off a little. Take a look at this shot…

  5. Jordan Crawford can do more than just dunk on LeBron

    Mar 21, 2011, 10:07 PM EST

    Jordan Crawford Wizards

    You remember Jordan Crawford? He’s the Xavier college player that dunked on LeBron James in a pickup game after LeBron’s skills camp back in the summer of 2009. Which would have been no big deal — LeBron tried to rotate over on defense and was a little late in a pickup game, it happens —…

  6. Stumbling to the playoffs in the East

    Mar 19, 2011, 8:00 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Atlanta Hawks

    Interesting post put up at Hoopdata, simply looking at playoff team’s records since the All-Star Break (coming into Saturday’s games). What you notice is some team’s stumbling to the finish line in the East. Chicago 11-3 Philadelphia 10-4 Boston 8-5 Orlando 8-5 New York 7-7 Miami 6-7 Indiana 6-9 Atlanta 5-9 We knew the Bulls…

  7. Josh Powell arrested in traffic accident prior to Hawks game

    Mar 12, 2011, 10:31 PM EST

    Atlant Hawks v Golden State Warriors

    Atlanta Hawks forward-center Josh Powell was arrested by Atlanta police prior to the Hawks’ game versus the Blazers. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Powell was arrested for failure to obey an authorized officer directing traffic, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, and obstruction. Apparently Powell was trying to get around downtown Atlanta following the…

  8. Bulls coach says Carlos Boozer out a few days to a week

    Mar 10, 2011, 3:13 PM EST

    Carlos Boozer injured

    Carlos Boozer had some swelling in his ankle and will be out a few days to a week, according to Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. He is officially listed as day-to-day. That is the official line (as tweeted by K.C. Jones of the Chicago Tribune and Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald). Aggrey Sam of CSN…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Lakers just keep on rolling

    Mar 9, 2011, 3:24 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while laughing at the best mugshot ever…. The Trail Blazers handing the Heat their fifth consecutive loss was our game of the night. Lakers 101, Hawks 87: The Lakers defense remains the engine of a train that has now won eight in a row (heading against a desperate Miami team Thursday). The…

  10. Atlanta nightclub sues LeBron James

    Mar 8, 2011, 1:10 PM EST

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    Pretty much wherever LeBron James goes, there is a party. In many cities where the Heat play, there are parties at clubs, ones where LeBron is paid to attend (and his friends end up making some money on the deal, think the show Entourage). But now the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that a deal over…

  11. Kevin Durant will play Friday night against Hawks

    Mar 4, 2011, 7:28 PM EST

    Kevin Durant dunks

    UPDATE 7:28 pm: Kevin Durant will start for the Thunder against the Hawks Friday. He did not miss a game. Recently twisted ankles, where things are a little more loose, are the most likely to be quickly re-injured. Hopefully Durant can get through this uninjured and playing at his usual level. 3: 44 pm: Kevin…

  12. Coach calls Durant doubtful for Thunders’ Friday game

    Mar 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Kevin Durant dunks

    Kevin Durant says he can go Friday for the Thunder against the Hawks. Coach Scott Brooks called him doubtful after Durant sat out practice Thursday. Take the coach in this one. Nothing has been decided, according to the Oklahoman, and Durant was walking around practice without a protective boot. But as he is the franchise…

  13. It’s official, Mike Bibby is a member of the Heat

    Mar 3, 2011, 12:50 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    No surprise here, but it became official, Mike Bibby has signed with the Miami Heat the team announced. “We want to welcome Mike Bibby as we continue to move into the direction of our championship dreams,” said Heat President Pat Riley. “We feel Mike, with his vast postseason experience, long range game and point guard…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Chicago gives one up to Atlanta

    Mar 3, 2011, 9:36 AM EST

    Bulls Hawks Basketball

    What you missed because you have tiger blood…. Atlanta 83, Chicago 80: Chicago was going to win ugly — this was not a pretty game as both teams struggled to score. However, the Bulls raced out to a 14-0 lead to start the game and held that lead for the first 47:31 of this game,…

  15. Winderman: It’s time for built-in buyouts in NBA contracts

    Mar 2, 2011, 1:17 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Miami Heat

    One of the prime sticking points in the negotiations for a new NBA collective-bargaining agreement is maximum contract length. Currently, players can be signed for up to six seasons. Management wants far shorter terms. Based on the machinations at the buyout deadline, the players certainly are fueling management’s argument. Even with time left on the…

  16. Report: Wizards buy Mike Bibby out; he’ll sign with Heat

    Feb 28, 2011, 3:30 PM EST

    Mike Bibby Wizards

    UPDATE 3:30 pm: According to Sam Amick, Bibby intends to sign with the Miami Heat once he clears waivers. Amick also notes that Bibby will take about $6 million less to get out of his current deal. Miami seems a good fit for what Bibby brings to the table — floor-spacing three-point shooting. That’s about…

  17. Clippers buyout Rasual Butler, veteran buyout wave starts

    Feb 27, 2011, 10:15 PM EST

    rasual butler

    Rasual Butler is the first, but you are going to see a rush of these stories in the next few days, followed up with speculation about where they will land. Now is when teams try to negotiate buyouts of contracts for veterans that the team is not going to play. The player takes a little…

  18. Mike Fratello to coach Ukrainian national team

    Feb 25, 2011, 8:59 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    The Czar (of the telestrator) is headed to the old Soviet bloc. Mike Fratello, the former NBA coach and current TNT color commentator, will coach the Ukrainian national team at the European Championships this summer, according to the Associated Press. Hopefully they like slow it down, grind it out, defensive basketball that Fratello was known…

  19. Mike Bibby wants a buyout in Washington, likely to be disappointed

    Feb 25, 2011, 10:55 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    Atlanta did the right thing — they needed Mike Bibby gone and any other point guard in. Kirk Hinrich is an upgrade. But it’s easy to see why Bibby is unhappy — he went from the starting point guard on a playoff team to being John Wall’s understudy on a lottery team. Bibby wants a…

  20. Hawks trade for Kirk Hinrich

    Feb 23, 2011, 7:48 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Multiple sources are reporting that the Atlanta Hawks have agreed to trade Mike Bibby, Mo Evans, rookie Jordan Crawford, and a #1 pick to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong. This deal fills an obvious need for the Hawks. Mike Bibby is still a sharpshooter, but he has contributed in…

  21. Lakers remind fans why maybe they shouldn’t worry so much

    Feb 23, 2011, 3:15 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Those looked like the Lakers everyone expects to see. The Lakers who showed up at Staples Center Tuesday night were up double-digits in the first quarter on a pretty good Hawks team. Those Lakers cruised to a 104-80 win. Those Lakers looked nothing like the ones that dropped three straight games at the end of…

  22. Ramon Sessions draws interest from Knicks, Hawks, Blazers

    Feb 17, 2011, 4:26 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    We’re members of the Ramon Sessions fan club. He’s not going to make you forget about Chris Paul, but he’s a quality point guard who plays within himself. He’s quick (clearly a lot quicker than Derek Fisher and Steve Blake after dropping 32 on the Lakers Wednesday), he’s good in transition and impressive on the…

  23. The Atlanta Hawks are a bit of a mess

    Feb 9, 2011, 7:31 PM EST

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    Even with their best player out of action, the Atlanta Hawks had no business being completely eviscerated by the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night. Philly is a solid team, but Atlanta is supposedly superior. They’re supposedly worthy of their decent seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, even if their efficiency differential puts them just…

  24. Video: Get out of Al Thornton’s way

    Feb 6, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    Al Thornton

    Al Thornton can get up. As proof, we bring you this. We should add that apparently Zaza Pachulia is not intimidating anyone from going to the rim. But this is one of the better dunks of the season. It might even crack Blake Griffin‘s top 10.

  25. Blake Griffin shows Al Horford he could start for Steelers Sunday, loses game

    Feb 5, 2011, 9:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    In a development that’s certain not to spark useless debates between people regarding the words “excessive,” “soft,” and “good hard fouls,” Blake Griffin fouled the ever loving mercy out of Al Horford on a last second game-winning drive attempt. Griffin went straight up, kind of, rose both arms to block the shot, made a play…
