  1. Wednesday And-1 Links: LeBron has his own flavor of Sprite now

    Mar 19, 2014, 6:27 PM EDT

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    Of course LeBron James helped design his own flavor of Sprite. You expected otherwise?

  2. Phil Jackson promises return of system basketball to New York, wants ‘Melo to be part of it

    Mar 18, 2014, 2:34 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    You can’t win titles in the NBA without elite talent. Superstars matter. It is the nature of the sport. However there is more to it than that, nobody ever just rolled the ball out and won a ring. Franchises have to put those stars in a system that benefits them but more importantly benefits the…

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

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Derrick Favors

    The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

  4. Rajon Rondo after latest Celtics loss: ‘I pretty much blame this on myself’

    Mar 17, 2014, 11:39 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Rondo tries to take the blame for Boston’s overtime loss to the Pelicans. But he wasn’t the one guarding Anthony Davis.

  5. Watch Anthony Davis go for 40 points (he had 21 rebounds, too)

    He’s insanely good. And he’s just 21.

  6. Phil Jackson to Knicks could work. It probably won’t, but it could.

    Mar 15, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Jackson

    Ultimately Thomas Wolfe will be proven right, you can’t go home again. Not even Phil Jackson. It’s easy to sit back and list the reasons Jackson’s return to the team that drafted him, taking over basketball operations of the New York Knicks, will not work: James Dolan; Jackson has never had any front office experience before;…

  7. Rajon Rondo won’t play back-to-backs rest of season

    Rajon Rondo, Deron Williams, Joe Johnson

    The Boston Celtics and Rajon Rondo have had better days behind them. In front of them too, they hope. Boston will miss the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons, and Rondo missed the All-Star Game for the first time in four years. To avoid repeating either outcome, Rondo must get fully healthy. That’s…

  8. Andrew Bynum looked good in his Pacers debut. Now can he do it again?

    Mar 12, 2014, 10:52 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Indiana Pacers

    Andrew Bynum looked good against the Celtics Tuesday. It was simple and clear. When basketball coaches say “you can’t teach height” Bynum showed exactly what they mean — matched up on Jared Sullinger and Brandon Bass, Bynum just grabbed rebounds and made shots right over the top of them. He was too big, too physical.…

  9. Tuesday night NBA Grades: San Antonio with another impressive statement

    Mar 12, 2014, 2:33 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Chicago Bulls

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking I never had teachers like that… San Antonio Spurs offense. The Bulls defense has forced everyone they have faced lately into an ugly, grappling fight on the ground that favors Chicago. Even Miami fell victim to it. San Antonio rose above it with…

  10. Celtics unveil new St. Patrick’s Day green uniforms. With sleeves.

    Mar 11, 2014, 2:50 PM EDT

    Why to the Boston Celtics need a St. Patrick’s Day uniform? Good question. But they have one now, with sleeves.

  11. Sunday NBA grades: All hail the unstoppable Jodie Meeks

    Mar 10, 2014, 12:59 AM EDT

    Jodie Meeks, Kevin Durant

    A career-high 42 points on just 18 shots. Not bad.

  12. Josh Smith fantasizes about playing with Rajon Rondo again

    Mar 9, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    Just like old times at Oak Hill Academy?

  13. Paul Pierce’s move to power forward adds twist to his career, Brooklyn Nets’ season

    Mar 8, 2014, 6:00 PM EDT

    Amir Johnson; Mirza Teletovic; Alan Anderson

    BOSTON – On Paul Pierce’s first defensive possession as the Brooklyn Nets’ full-time starting power forward, Serge Ibaka backed him down on the block. Pierce bodied Ibaka, keeping him out of the paint, and Ibaka threw the ball away. On the Oklahoma City Thunder’s next possession, Ibaka posted up Pierce again. Pierce hardly yielded an…

  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. Don’t look now but Rajon Rondo has a steady three point shot

    Mar 5, 2014, 2:50 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Last season before his injury, Rajon Rondo shot 24 percent from three. The season before that 23.8 percent. Before that 23.3 percent. His career high season was 31.3. Until now — Rondo is taking more than twice as many as he has before and his hitting a very respectable 36.4 percent of them this season.…

  16. Report: Carmelo Anthony’s camp doesn’t want to wait for 2015 Knicks rebuild

    Mar 5, 2014, 1:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Every player says it. Carmelo Anthony is saying it. It’s is some variant of “I’m not about the money, I’m about winning.” Then the money goes on the table and it’s all about the money. That’s the choice facing Carmelo Anthony this summer — a big payday from the Knicks and trust them to rebuild…

  17. Report: Lakers will wait for 2015 free agents like Kevin Love unless they can get LeBron (Sorry, Melo)

    Mar 5, 2014, 10:45 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Jordan Hill, Wesley Johnson

    The Lakers are poised to make a big free agent splash this summer or the next, and Steve Nash is the lynchpin to the decision. If the Lakers want to go big this offseason, they’ll use the stretch provision on Nash, spreading the amount they owe him across the cap the next three years. But…

  18. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  19. Kobe Bryant says Lakers’ revenge will be “sweet” and “quick”

    Mar 3, 2014, 1:16 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Press Conferences-Media Availabilty 2014

    This would be the definition of playing to the fan base. Although I’m sure Kobe Bryant believes it. There has been plenty of schadenfreude around the league — from other front offices to other fan bases — as the Lakers have fallen into being a hot mess this season. They entered the season with a…

  20. Celtics’ Gerald Wallace has torn meniscus, likely done for season

    Feb 28, 2014, 12:48 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Sacramento Kings

    Gerald Wallace, who brought a declining game but genuine nightly effort to the Celtics, has a torn meniscus and is likely done for the season. That is what coach Brad Stevens announced Friday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Stevens said Wallace had been playing through pain for some time and an MRI discovered the…

  21. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about that Kyrie Irving?

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:05 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

  22. Celtics choosing to move past Rondo’s unexcused absence

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:01 AM EDT

    New Boston Celtics Head Coach Stevens smiles during a news conference at the Celtics training center in Waltham

    Rajon Rondo skipped his team’s trip to Sacramento late Friday night, preferring to stay in Los Angeles to celebrate his 28th birthday with friends and family instead. Rondo hasn’t been playing on the second night of back-to-backs since returning from injury this season, and wasn’t scheduled to play Saturday night against the Kings. But he…

  23. Rajon Rondo skips Celtics trip to Sacramento without permission, may face team discipline

    Feb 25, 2014, 10:55 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo hasn’t been playing in second games of back-to-backs for the Celtics, as he continues to gain strength after missing most of last season and the first part of this one with a knee injury. That little detail, along with the fact that friends and family were in Los Angeles to celebrate his birthday…

  24. Carmelo Anthony admits his optimism is being tested. What about desire to stay in New York?

    Feb 24, 2014, 12:52 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Orlando Magic

    With 26 games left to go in the season, the New York Knicks are 5.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the East. Let that sink in for a second. The eight seed Atlanta Hawks are on pace to win 39 games this season, to get there the Knicks need to go 18-8…
