Rajon Rondo received a warning for his flop against the Hawks, which might have been the worst we’ve seen all season.

NBA front offices already have the UConn head coach on their list of people to call.

The Spurs have solidified themselves atop the NBA — if your team is going to win an NBA title they need to clear that bar because the Spurs aren’t coming back to the pack.

Joel Anthony may consider free agency this summer, but no one is going to pay him more than he’d get by simply taking the player option on the final year of his deal.

The Bulls ball movement was crisp and that led to Taj Gibson throwing down all over

Rajon Rondo was sidelined for a night, so he stepped into the broadcast booth and did a little color commentary. He was nice to everyone but didn’t give out any “Tommy points.”

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.…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while telling your wife to be you want to spend $3,000 to live tweet your wedding… LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. Aldridge returns to the lineup and the struggling Blazers rattle off three straight wins. It’s not a coincidence. Aldridge finished with 28 points (10-of-20…

I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

Rajon Rondo is being held out of back-to-back contests by the Celtics this season, in order to be extra-cautious with the team’s franchise player who’s coming off of serious surgery, and playing in what is nothing more than a rebuilding year for the organization. That little wrinkle allows Rondo to be available for things he wouldn’t…

San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

Then he won’t mind this post.

Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love work well together lifting Timberwolves past Mavericks. Also, Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks just keep on rolling.

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…

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.

Rondo tries to take the blame for Boston’s overtime loss to the Pelicans. But he wasn’t the one guarding Anthony Davis.
Mar 17, 2014, 10:51 AM EDT
He’s insanely good. And he’s just 21.

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;…

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…

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.…

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…

Why to the Boston Celtics need a St. Patrick’s Day uniform? Good question. But they have one now, with sleeves.
Mar 10, 2014, 12:59 AM EDT
A career-high 42 points on just 18 shots. Not bad.
