  1. Heat’s Mike Miller has no concussion, skips game as precaution

    Feb 16, 2011, 9:15 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat’s Mike Miller had three blows to the head in five days, one in each of the Heat’s last three games. The good news is, a CT scan and other tests showed no damage according to the Associated Press. He was released from an Indiana hospital. Miller asked to join the team for…

  2. Others in praise of Bill Russell

    Feb 16, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    President Obama Honors Medal Of Freedom Recipients

    Bill Russell is a legend. A legend in a way we so rarely see athletes be anymore — a powerful force off the court for his beliefs as well as on it. Today taking a stand might get in the way of endorsement deals, so most players (particularly elite ones) steer clear of controversial topics.…

  3. Heat’s Miller taken to hospital with concussion concerns

    Feb 15, 2011, 11:59 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    Tuesday night, for the third consecutive game, Miami’s Mike Miller took a blow to the head. Tuesday night it was an inadvertent Jeff Foster elbow during the third quarter (he left the game at that point). Last Sunday he was dazed after running into a hard screen by Kevin Garnett. Two days before that, on…

    President Obama Honors Medal Of Freedom Recipients

    Celtics legend Bill Russell was given Medal of Freedom today at the White House by President Barack Obama. Here is what Obama had to say about Russell: “Bill Russell, the man, is someone who stood up for the rights and dignity of all men. He marched with King; he stood by Ali. When a restaurant…

  5. Delonte West may return to Celtics lineup Wednesday… or not

    Feb 15, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    Delonte West

    UPDATE 2:09 pm: West got hit on his surgically repaired wrist during Tuesday’s Celtics practice, hard enough that the team has taken him for X-rays, according to a tweet by Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston. Those likely will turn out to be nothing serious, but it might be enough to keep him out of the lineup…

  6. How much money could corporate logos on an NBA jersey bring?

    Feb 15, 2011, 12:17 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Manchester United has an AON logo across the front of their jersey and nobody blinks. Newcastle United has Northern Rock and its not thought twice about (but it was cooler when the Newcastle Brewery sponsored them). Would NBA fans feel the same way? What about a replacing the Lakers logo with Target? Or replace the…

  7. Paul Pierce’s MRI negative, he will play Wednesday

    Feb 14, 2011, 3:09 PM EDT

    PPierce_celebrate

    The MRI on Paul Pierce’s left foot and ankle has come back negative, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England (on twitter).  Pierce did have a big bag of ice on his sprained wrist Monday. Blakely adds that Pierce is expected to play Wednesday against the Nets despite the injuries. Before you ask…

  8. Where is all the trade chatter?

    Feb 14, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz, Game 6

    It’s 10 days until the NBA trade deadline, and usually right now the chatter among NBA teams about potential deals is ramping up to a huge wave fans everywhere just try to ride. This season, it’s a ripple in a pond. Mark Cuban said this is a pretty standard year. “Relative to other years in…

    Feb 14, 2011, 10:05 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    Remember, Chris Bosh returns to Toronto on Wednesday night. Adrian Smith was the MVP of the 1966 All-Star Game and got a Ford Galaxie convertible as the prize — which he still owns and drives. In case you didn’t notice, Derrick Rose played good defense on Chris Paul Sunday. Take that Nicolas Batum. Yes, Rajon…

  10. Celtics Paul Pierce to get MRI on foot

    Feb 13, 2011, 7:29 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 4

    Paul Pierce was not Paul Pierce on Sunday, shooting 0-for-10 from the field. We thought it was the wrist on his shooting hand that he sprained Saturday, combined with the fact the Heat’s perimeter defenders are pretty athletic. But it was more than that — Pierce said after the game he was going to get…

  11. LeBron James misses free throw as Celtics top Heat for third time

    Feb 13, 2011, 4:06 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    If you hate LeBron James, as much of the Western world does, today was quite a day for you. After being largely the only reason the Miami Heat were even in the game against the Boston Celtics, James clanged the first of two free throws down two with ten seconds left, then failed to save…

  12. The implications of Heat-Celtics III

    Feb 13, 2011, 12:43 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    For the first time this season, the Miami Heat will face the Boston Celtics with a better record.  But in the third meeting between the two best teams in the East, the Heat will need a significant amount of progress across all fronts in order to come away with their first victory over the Celtics.…

  13. More Ray Allen love from the game’s elite shooters

    Feb 11, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    Friday has been a day of tributes to Ray Allen — and he deserves it. Guy’s a legend. An icon. Now the greatest three point shooter in the history of the NBA. One of the more interesting ones comes from A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. He went and talked to the five other active players…

  14. Video: Ray Allen becomes king of the three

    Feb 11, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Image (1) Allen_pure-thumb-250x301-13052.jpg for post 2373

    Ray Allen has as pure a stroke as the Association has ever seen. The three-pointer he drained Thursday night to pass Reggie Miller and become the NBA’s all time leader in three pointers made was a classic Ray Allen play. He filled the lane on the break, stopped up at the arc and when the…

  15. Lakers ride out Boston’s emotional high to get win they want

    Feb 11, 2011, 12:47 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    In the end, the Boston fans got what they came to see — they witnessed history. Ray Allen has now made more 3-pointers than anyone else in NBA history. But the Lakers left with what they wanted — a win over a quality opponent. It reinforces that their play of late has not been just smoke and…

  16. Ray Allen is the NBA all-time three-point leader

    Feb 10, 2011, 8:52 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    It was a wide-open transition three, where the form was perfect. It seemed fitting. With 1:45 left in the first quarter Allen took the pass from Rajon Rondo in transition, set his feet and had a wide open look, knocking down his 2,561st three pointer as a professional. That moved him past Reggie Miller into…

  17. Tonight is Ray Allen’s record night. Maybe.

    Feb 10, 2011, 2:59 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    Ray Allen needs to drain just two more threes to become the NBA’s all-time leader in three-pointers made. It’s hard to picture a more perfect setting to break the record than tonight: At Boston Garden in a nationally televised game against the Los Angeles Lakers with Reggie Miller, the current record holder, an analyst on…

  18. Lakers to measure themselves against Celtics: What to look for

    Feb 10, 2011, 1:13 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers are the two-time NBA defending champions. They have the newest shiny rings and the banner has barely had time to gather dust. Every time they step on the court they are the team the opposition wants to measure itself against. Except Thursday night. Then the roles will be reversed — the Lakers will…

  19. Danny Ainge confirms Celtics are looking for deadline trade

    Feb 9, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    If Marquis Daniels had not suffered a freakish, scary injury last week, the Boston Celtics very likely would have ridden out the trade deadline and watched every other team try to match what they already have. Right now, Boston is the rabbit every team is trying to catch (even San Antonio, Boston scares teams more…

  20. Are the Chicago Bulls contenders? They aren’t even thinking about it.

    Feb 9, 2011, 12:42 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Charlotte Bobcats

    NBA fans, most of them anyway, don’t list the Chicago Bulls among the contenders in the East. It’s Miami and Boston. (Sorry Orlando, have to earn your way back onto that list.) The Bulls being left off that list is really keeping Carlos Boozer up at night. “That’s okay, we believe in ourselves,” Boozer told…

  21. PBT Tuesday morning one liners

    Feb 8, 2011, 10:54 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Things that make me happy — Shaun Livingston earning playing time, getting run in crunch time and leading the Bobcats to a win over the Celtics. (No offense to D.J. Augustin or the Celtics, but we root hard for Livingston around these parts.) A fantastic statistical breakdown of what makes Manu Ginobili good. Very good.…

  22. Spike Lee thinks Kevin Garnett needs to calm down

    Feb 8, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v New York Knicks

    Spike Lee is an institution at Knicks games, sitting courtside rocking the Landry Fields jersey. Jawing back and forth with players. Talking smack. And it’s all in good fun. Well, except when Kevin Garnett was in town recently, Lee said to ESPNNewYork. That guy lost it. This is really surprising, and this is all true.…

  23. Pau Gasol is not turning into Kevin Garnett anytime soon

    Feb 7, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s amazing how many people want Pau Gasol to be something he’s not. He is not a traditional, back-to-the-basket, power game center (and some Lakers fans criticized him for it). He doesn’t have a big ego and demand the ball, he gently reminds guys he’d like to touch the ball more (he gets criticized for…

  24. Good news: Marquis Daniels let out of hospital

    Feb 7, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Image (1) mdaniels-thumb-250x166-16455.jpg for post 3284

    Some good news, the Celtics Marquis Daniels has been released and come home from the hospital. According to the official Celtics twitter account, “He was reported to have been joking and in good spirits.” Daniels collapsed early in the second quarter Sunday in the Celtics victory over the Magic. Daniels was trying to post up…

  25. NBA Power Rankings: Antonio McDyess’ tip keeps Spurs on top

    Feb 7, 2011, 2:06 PM EDT

    Antonio McDyess, Manu Ginobili, Richard Jefferson, Gary Neal

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where the Heat and Mavericks are hot, but are they really better than the Spurs and Celtics 1. Spurs (42-8, Last Week #1). They are on the annual rodeo road trip (a rodeo kicks them out of their arena for a couple weeks) and early on they got a quality…
