  1. Your NBA All-Star reserves announced, coaches went safe

    Feb 9, 2012, 7:24 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    The fans picked the five starters, but this week the coaches voted to name the reserves to the All-Star Game in Orlando. And the coaches played it safe. They went with the old names they new not the future stars. They went with veteran Joe Johnson and left out Rajon Rondo. They left out Paul…

  2. Enjoying the Jeremy Lin ride, which may get bumpy

    Feb 9, 2012, 1:58 PM EST

    Jeremy Lin

    We need to be honest — the three defenses that Jeremy Lin has carved up as the starting point guard for the Knicks are three terrible defenses. All three are in the bottom 10 in the league in defensive efficiency, and the best one (Utah) has slow bigs who are awful against quick guards —…

  3. Wilson Chandler says he will re-sign with Denver after China

    Feb 9, 2012, 9:55 AM EST

    Wilson+Chandler+Atlanta+Hawks+v+Denver+Nuggets+Ym_wkv-B6Cgl

    Kenyon Martin is back from China and was in a Clippers uniform last night. But there are still three quality names set to return to the NBA when their teams’ seasons end in China — Wilson Chandler, J.R. Smith and Aaron Brooks. There are a lot of teams around the NBA who need some help…

  4. Amar’e Stoudemire out until next Monday

    Feb 8, 2012, 11:57 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Charlotte Bobcats

    The Knicks will be shorthanded — or, if you prefer, the Jeremy Lin show will continue — through the weekend. Amare Stoudemire will remain in Florida through the weekend and will rejoin the Knicks for practice next Monday, tweets Mark Berman of the New York Post. That would have him missing three games — the…

  5. D’Antoni tells Knicks fans to get a life, stop booing Jeffries

    Feb 7, 2012, 8:21 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni

    Knicks fans have it in for Jarred Jeffries, a guy they see as stealing the midlevel exception for the past few years. He is emblematic of the bad years the Knicks are trying to move past in some fans mind, a guy overpaid for little production. Jeffries came back on a new deal but the…

  6. It’s official, Chauncey Billups out for season with torn Achilles

    Feb 7, 2012, 6:58 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    After watching Chauncey Billups have to be helped off the court Monday night, everyone feared the worst but was coming but hoping against hope it wasn’t true. It is. Chauncey Billups out for the season with a torn left Achilles tendon, the team announced Tuesday afternoon. Usually these injuries take 12 to 18 months to…

  7. New York riding the wave of Jeremy Lin… but it will hit shore

    Feb 7, 2012, 2:57 PM EST

    Jeremy Lin

    You know how you can be working hard on a really hot day, spending hours helping your friend move (including getting that couch up three flights of twisting stairs), and you really could go for a beer. When it’s all done, someone hands you a cold Bud Light and it tastes like the best beer…

  8. Carmelo Anthony out 1-2 weeks with groin strain

    Feb 7, 2012, 11:53 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    The good news is that Carmelo Anthony‘s groin strain is not serious. The bad news is this is a slow injury to heal and it has to be fully healed or it is easy to re-aggravate. The Knicks announced that Anthony will be out one-to-two weeks to heal the injury, reports Howard Beck of the…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Jeremy Lin is king of New York

    Feb 7, 2012, 8:58 AM EST

    Jeremy Lin Knicks

    What you missed while thinking that even though you didn’t love Madonna’s halftime show at the Super Bowl, it was better than the Black Eyed Peas doing Tron or whatever it was the year before…. 76ers 95, Lakers 90: It was the Kobe Bryant and Lou Williams show, and it was our game of the…

  10. Carmelo Anthony strains groin, may miss games

    Feb 7, 2012, 2:38 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    Already without Amar’e Stoudemire, who was away from the team following the unexpected death of his brother, the Knicks lost Carmelo Anthony on Monday night to injury. Midway through the first quarter the Jazz turned the ball over and Anthony started running up court when he pulled up hobbled. A pass was thrown to him…

  11. Chris Bosh is okay with the fact you don’t love him

    Feb 6, 2012, 10:05 AM EST

    Heats' Bosh moves around Raptors' Davis during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Chris Bosh is going to make the All-Star team. The coaches (who choose the reserves) will put him on the squad, no question. He’s one of the best forwards in the game and deserves to be in Orlando at the end of the month for the big showcase. But you the fans didn’t vote him…

  12. So… Carmelo Anthony says he’s afraid of cats. Can we talk about this, right meow?

    Feb 4, 2012, 2:30 PM EST

    Knicks forward Anthony reacts to the Bulls missing a free throw attempt in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Knicks blog Posting and Toasting shared this  Knicks video, another in a series called kid reporters. The Knicks haven’t made it embeddable, which is a shame, because it’s pretty much amazing all the way through. So go click that link and come back. I want to call your attention to the part where they discuss…

  13. Weekend Observations 2.4.12: Where corn don’t grow

    Feb 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.    1. Blake Griffin is not human. 2. Denver’s a really great team this season, they’re just not so impressive you know you can count on them in the WCF. The lack of star power is going to continue to be…

  14. Friday And-1 links: Even the Mavs realize OKC is very good

    Feb 3, 2012, 11:25 AM EST

    Kendrick Perkins, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Dallas’ Jason Terry says what we all already knew: Oklahoma City is the team to beat in the West. Lou Williams and the art of…

  15. Jerry West says teams should call trade demand bluffs

    Feb 3, 2012, 8:44 AM EST

    Jerry West

    Last season it was Carmelo Anthony. This season it’s Dwight Howard. Players who hold the threat of walking as a free agent over a team to force a trade to a destination they prefer. Jerry West wants none of it. He says teams should call the player’s bluff — make him leave the money on…

  16. Kobe, LeBron, Howard lead NBA All-Star starters

    Feb 2, 2012, 7:20 PM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    Well fans, you got the game you wanted. And it should be a good one (as defenseless exhibitions go). Good on ya. The NBA has announced the starters for the All-Star game, as voted in by the fans. Usually there are a painful choice or two, but this year it’s a solid group. We can…

  17. Tyson Chandler thinks the Knicks could still win the title

    Feb 1, 2012, 5:00 PM EST

    Tyson Chandler, Norris Cole

    I like to think that if Scarlett Johansson just hung out with me and got to know me — to really experience my sparkling personality and deep blue eyes — I’d have a real shot at her. Along those same lines, Tyson Chandler thinks if things break the right way, the New York Knicks could…

  18. Baron Davis’ back flares up, did not practice Wednesday

    Feb 1, 2012, 3:58 PM EST

    baron davis

    Tuesday night, the Knicks didn’t look like they needed a savior. Carmelo Anthony was back, the Knicks were scoring the paint and knocking down threes, they looked like what everyone had kind of expected before the season. Which is good, because the other savior may be a while. Baron Davis sat out practice Wednesday, tweets…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: ‘Melo is back, Knicks cruise

    Feb 1, 2012, 8:37 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Tayshaun Prince, Jason Maxiel

    What you missed while getting arrested for attacking people and police with a toy light saber… Knicks 113, Pistons 86: Carmelo Anthony returned, he had 25 efficient points while playing his best game in weeks, and the Knicks cruise to an easy win. Coincidence? Well, kind of. This win was really about the Knicks defense…

  20. Carmelo returns to Knicks lineup Tuesday night

    Jan 31, 2012, 7:07 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    From the New York Times’ Howard Beck, via Steve Adamak: Report from @bergenadamek at the Garden: Carmelo is back in the lineup tonight vs. Detroit. Anthony’s struggles this season have been well-documented: he is currently behind only LeBron James and Kobe Bryant in usage rate, but he’s shooting just 39.4% from the floor and 30.3% from beyond…

  21. Today in “The Knicks really need a point guard” news: Douglas to replace Shumpert

    Jan 31, 2012, 6:09 PM EST

    Douglas_Toney

    From the New York Post’s Marc Berman: HOUSTON — The Iman Shumpert starting point guard experiment ended last night for the Knicks. Toney Douglas was promoted to starting point guard last night for rookie Shumpert, but then played so poorly he got benched for third-string Jeremy Lin for the final 20 minutes of the Knicks’…

  22. Winderman: Bulls should look at Knicks before going all-in for Dwight Howard

    Jan 31, 2012, 4:04 PM EST

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Ah, the mega-trade, the all-for-one and the hope that the one is the end-all. As the Magic continue to stagger, and as it becomes clearer that Dwight Howard did not sign up for this, the only remaining issue seems to be how “all in” a trade partner might go. And that, to a degree, brings…

  23. ‘Melo, Knicks players have Mike D’Antoni’s back. Verbally.

    Jan 31, 2012, 1:42 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    If Carmelo Anthony really wanted to help Mike D’Antoni out, he would get back on the court and when he does try moving the ball quickly not stopping and going into isolation so often. But that’s not happening — Anthony is not expected to play Tuesday night (he did not take part in shootaround that…

  24. Baron Davis not playing, but he is selling a sitcom

    Jan 30, 2012, 2:48 PM EST

    Baron Davis, Jason Richardson, Corey Maggette

    The Cavalry will not come charging over the hill to save the Knicks on Tuesday, it appears. Both Carmelo Anthony and Baron Davis did not practice with the team Monday and appear out for Tuesday’s game against the Pistons, according to Howard Beck of the New York Times. Coach Mike D’Antoni called Anthony “doubtful” due…

  25. Dwight Howard open to playing with Derrick Rose, Bulls

    Jan 30, 2012, 11:08 AM EST

    Dwight Howard Derrick Rose

    And the “Dwight Howard said he would play here” tour has moved on to Chicago. This has all the meaning of a Kardashian wedding vow, but here is the quote from the Chicago Tribune when Howard was asked if he would be open to playing in Chicago with Derrick Rose. “If I could play with…
