  1. Randy Wittman admits he’s not motivating Washington Wizards

    Jan 24, 2014, 8:39 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Losing to the Boston Celtics isn’t embarrassing. Boston is 15-29 this season – hardly great, but definitely not a record indicative of a team that can’t compete. But losing to the Celtics when they don’t have Rajon Rando, Avery Bradley and Jerryd Bayless? When they outscore you by four points in the six minutes their…

  2. Josh Smith on pace for worst 3-point-shooting season in NBA history, but only because he’s playing smarter

    Jan 24, 2014, 3:57 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons  v Indiana Pacers

    Josh Smith is on pace for the worst 3-point-shooting season in NBA history. That was the case recently made by Sean Corp of Detroit Bad Boys and backed by Kyle Wagner of Deadspin. There are varying potential cutoffs, but here’s how it stacks up: In NBA history, players have attempted at least 200 3-pointers in…

  3. LaMarcus Aldridge thinks he should have been an All-Star starter

    Jan 24, 2014, 2:53 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Portland Trail Blazers

    If the NBA coaches and players were voting for who got to be an All-Star Game starter, LaMarcus Aldridge would be a lock in the West. But the fans wanted to see other guys (Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love is your West starting frontcourt) so Aldridge will again be selected by the coaches…

  4. The Extra Pass: Ranking all 28 2016 U.S. Olympic Basketball Team candidatles

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Some names leaked yesterday for inclusion on the 2014-16 USA Basketball men’s national-team roster – the pool of players who will be considered for upcoming international events. That includes the World Cup of Basketball this summer, possibly 2015 Olympic qualifiers  – and, of course, the 2016 Rio Olympics. Marc Stein of ESPN beat today’s official announcement with…

  5. Celtics’ Gerald Wallace with game-winning layup in OT (VIDEO)

    Jan 23, 2014, 4:55 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    With the game tied 111-111 and 10 seconds left in overtime, we didn’t really expect Boston’s Gerald Wallace to be the guy bringing the ball up the court. And when he did, we expected he would start to drive and pass it off. If not, he would settle for a pull-up jumper. But Wallace kept going,…

  6. Wednesday night NBA grades: Kevin Durant=Slim Reaper (and other guys with a good night)

    Jan 23, 2014, 4:30 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while getting absorbed in the “Swingers” oral history…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. Twitter has dubbed him the “Slim Reaper” and I, for one, like the new nickname. He dropped 36 points tonight on the Spurs, including a couple of clutch threes late and rather…

  7. Let’s actually set criteria for selecting All-Stars

    Jan 22, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Toronto Raptors

    Has Dwyane Wade or Kyle Lowry had a better season? Lowry smashes Wade in win shares (6.4 to 3.1) and tops him in Estimated Wins Added (6.5 to 5.7), too. There’s value in staying on the court, and because Wade has been hobbled by knee issues this year, it’s clear Lowry, an impressive and consistent…

  8. The Extra Pass: Mark Cuban happy to have his friend Nowitzki around longer; plus Tuesdays’ recaps

    Jan 22, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    NBA: Pelicans v Mavericks

    To them this is more than a business — Mark Cuban and Dirk Nowitzki are friends. Technically they are boss and employee, but neither sees it that way. “I kick his ass whenever I’ve wanted to,” Cuban said last week, joking around about his friend the way you ride yours. “It’s kind of like we…

  9. Celtics’ Avery Bradley sprains ankle, could miss some time

    Jan 21, 2014, 11:22 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    There haven’t been a lot of bright spots in the Celtics’ season, Avery Bradley has been one of them — healthy in his fourth NBA season he has broken out to average 14.8 points a game, shoot 36.5 percent from three and as always be a pesky, impressive defender on the perimeter. But now he…

  10. Greg Oden blocks Jeff Green’s dunk attempt (VIDEO)

    Jan 21, 2014, 9:46 PM EDT

    greg oden jeff green

    That is Greg Oden, the injury-riddled Heat big man who debuted with the team last week, starting to look like the guy the Heat hoped they were getting. The guy who can make a defensive difference in the paint. In the second quarter of the Heat/Celtics game Tuesday night, Boston’s Jeff Green got the ball…

  11. Celtics to be without Jerryd Bayless at least a week due to toe injury

    Jan 21, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    Since coming over from Memphis Jerryd Bayless has averaged almost 20 minutes a night for Boston, averaging 7.1 points (on just 38 percent shooting) and three assists a night. However Bayless sprained his toe, is out Tuesday night against Miami and will be out 7-10 days, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Right now Rajon…

  12. Kris Humphries says he wants to stay in Boston

    Jan 21, 2014, 12:09 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    In a few weeks, close to the trading deadline, Kris Humphries could be playing in another uniform in another city. Humphries is upping his trade value with his play since becoming a starter in Boston, averaging 9.7 points and 9.1 rebounds a game plus doing all the dirty work inside he is known for. Actually,…

  13. Rondo on Celtics-Heat: ‘It’s not a rivalry. But I still don’t like those guys.’

    Jan 21, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo has returned from injury, but he’s the only star veteran remaining from a team that won a championship in 2008, and had many memorable playoff battles in the years that followed — including against the Miami Heat. While there may no longer be a rivalry between the two teams based on the talent…

  14. Paul George says dunk contest competition will determine his participation (so, he’s probably out)

    Jan 20, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    Paul George

    Paul George reportedly said he he doesn’t want to participate in the dunk contest, but he’s at least leaving the door open, if just a crack. George, via Scott Agness of Pacers.com (hat tip: Zach Harper of Eye on Basketball): When asked whether he had declined the offers, George said, “No, I haven’t declined. I’m…

  15. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

  16. Kevin Garnett: ‘I would do anything for’ Rajon Rondo

    Jan 20, 2014, 11:20 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    It can be a little difficult keeping track of the feuds among the members of the Boston Celtics’ last title team. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce don’t like Ray Allen. Doc Rivers reportedly tried to fight Rajon Rondo. Rondo said he “didn’t feel anything” when Garnett and Pierce were traded. It’s dizzying. But between Garnet…

  17. Rajon Rondo on aftermath of first game back: ‘I’m alive’

    Jan 20, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    If the Boston Celtics are going to trade Rajon Rondo, they need him to prove he’s healthy. Though the Celtics could theoretically be willing to sell low, NBA teams are typically too risk-averse to trade for a player in Rondo’s condition. He needn’t be the same player he was pre-injury, but he at least must…

  18. Report: GMs around the league expect Celtics to trade Rondo

    Jan 19, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo made his return to the court on Friday in Boston’s loss to the Lakers, so now that he’s back playing, the reports have already begun to ramp back up that the Celtics will look to trade him as soon as the right offer comes along, largely because he won’t fit into the team’s…

  19. Kobe includes Rajon Rondo when discussing future Hall of Famers who played for 2010 Celtics

    Jan 18, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant is still a spectator these days, not expecting to return from the fractured bone in his knee until sometime in February. With his Lakers taking on the Celtics in Boston on Friday, memories of better times were brought to the surface, and Bryant was among those sad to see the Paul Pierce and…

  20. PBT Podcast: Is Lance Stephenson an All-Star?

    Jan 17, 2014, 5:49 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets vs Indiana Pacers

    Lance Stephenson‘s 28 points on the Knicks — and how he plays with a real flair — has a lot of people around the NBA asking if he is an All-Star? That’s the first topic in the latest edition of the ProBasketballTalk Podcast, featuring myself and Brett Pollakoff of PBT, plus Eytan Shander of NBC…

  21. Rondo returns to Celtics Friday. With a minutes restriction, but he returns.

    Jan 17, 2014, 11:42 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Vs. Boston Celtics At TD Garden

    Rajon Rondo is back. For about five minutes a quarter, but he is back. After missing basically a year with a torn ACL, the Celtics’ All-Star point guard is set to return Friday against the Lakers to the Boston lineup — a lineup that is very different than the one he was last on the…

    Jan 16, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox Victory Parade

    Jamie Young is from Indiana and attended college in Illinois, but he’s definitely a Massachusetts guy now. Young is in his 13th season with the Boston Celtics, lasting through the Jim O’Brien and Doc Rivers regimes and surviving into the Brad Stevens era. He’s held a variety of roles and is now an assistant coach.…

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

  24. Wednesday night NBA grades: Greg Oden is back — that is a story worth celebrating

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering what kind of Little League coach sues one of his 14-year-old players… Greg Oden, Miami Heat. He made it back, and that is the story. Tonight he had six points on 2-of-3 shooting in 8:24 on the court — what matters is that…

  25. Keith Bogans ‘excused’ from team activities with Celtics

    Jan 15, 2014, 11:28 PM EDT

    Keith Bogan

    Keith Bogans is a veteran playing in his 11th NBA season, and as such, isn’t exactly thrilled to be riding the bench as part of a rebuilding situation with the Boston Celtics. Bogans vented publicly and extensively a couple of weeks back about his role with the team, and while it was viewed as nothing…
