    New York Knicks' Stoudemire celebrates a basket against the Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Back in the summer of 2010, Amar’e Stoudemire was going to be part of the Team USA squad that went on to Turkey and the FIBA World Championships and won gold (qualifying the team for the 2012 Olympics). But then he signed an uninsured $100 million deal with the Knicks — nobody would insure Stoudemire’s…

  2. However you build it, U.S. Olympic team will be very good

    Jan 17, 2012, 2:10 PM EST

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    We don’t know exactly what the U.S. Olympic team will look like in London. We know the pool of players — the 20 finalists — the roster will come from. And we know a couple other things: Mike Krzyzewski and staff have some hard choices ahead of them. This team will be very, very good.…

  3. Video: Andrea Bargnani’s underground All-Star anthem

    Jan 17, 2012, 1:27 PM EST

    Raptors Bargnani reacts to a missed basket against the Nets during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Brilliant. We told you Andrea Bargnani is having a career year in Toronto (which, along with the Raptors improved defense, should have people using the words “Dwane Casey” and “coach of the year” in the same sentence). He’s actually defending as well as giving Toronto 22 points a game, and he’s doing it more efficiently…

  4. Dwight Howard keeps his cool as trade rumors swirl

    Jan 17, 2012, 12:01 PM EST

    Magic's Howard listens to the National Anthem before their NBA basketball game against the Kings in Sacramento

    It’s the Clippers. No, it’s still the Nets. No, the Lakers. And Orlando still loves you! Rumors are swirling around Dwight Howard like he’s an honorary Kardashian, but he is keeping his cool, keeping his head down and winning games. And for now that is working. The latest rumor to come up was that the…

    Brandon Roy

    Welcome to our 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). Portland’s 166 game sellout streak is in danger of coming to an end. Which speaks more to the condensed schedule and the economy than it does…

  9. Full slate of NBA on tap for Martin Luther King day

    Jan 16, 2012, 10:51 AM EST

    martin-luther-king-jr

    The NBA has tried to make Martin Luther King Day it’s sporting day — and it’s a good fit (well as good as any sporting attempt to claim the day). The NBA has become a league about inclusion on a lot of levels: If you can ball well enough it doesn’t matter if you are…

  10. Carmelo Anthony doubtful for Saturday vs. Thunder

    Jan 13, 2012, 4:37 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    One of the biggest shows of the year is coming to Oklahoma City Saturday night — Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. But it looks like the part of Carmelo Anthony will be played by Bill Walker. Anthony did not practice with the Knicks on Friday and is doubtful for the game, tweets Howard…

    Welcome to our morning 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). Kevin Love vs. Sumo wrestler. Who ya got? Is there even such a thing as a “clutch player?” Our own Rob Mahoney argues no, there…

    Carmelo Anthony — the fulcrum of the Knicks offense, not to mention the team’s leading scorer at 26.7 points per game as — had to leave Thursday night’s game after rolling his ankle in the third quarter. It happened during a scramble for the ball, which was at his feet (as you see above). He…

  15. Dwight Howard leads everyone in first All-Star ballot returns

    Jan 12, 2012, 2:58 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    You didn’t love Dwight Howard as much as Derrick Rose and LeBron James when it came time to award the MVP last year (I know you didn’t get to vote on that, neither did I, but sentiment on this site ran heavy to Rose among commenters). But you love him now. Howard, the Magic’s center,…

    What you missed while waiting for LSU to score…. 76ers 96, Pacers 86: This was our game of the night, you can read about it here. Knicks 91, Bobcats 87: Every good team has a bad team that just gives them fits. Maybe the Bobcats are that for the Knicks. Or, maybe we are overestimating…

  19. Sixers beat Pacers… can Philly win the Atlantic division?

    Jan 10, 2012, 1:00 AM EST

    Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jeff Foster, Lance Stephenson, Tyler Hansbrough

    We’re only eight games into the season — about 12 percent of the way —so drawing broad conclusions is tough. But it was hard not to look at a couple games Monday night and not have one particular question pop up. The game first was the 76ers taking on the Indiana Pacers, two of the…

  20. Weekend Observations: 25 things from the week that was

    Jan 7, 2012, 2:16 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.  1. Ramon Sessions is not shooting well, but he’s drawing a lot of contact and his assists are up this year. He’s got a 19.5 PER and can’t get over 25 minutes per game on the Cavaliers. He’s much more of…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bobcats and Knicks have the same record

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while watching West Virginia score more first half points than 15 the NBA teams playing last night (seriously)…. Bobcats 118, Knicks 110: Boris Diaw outplayed Amare Stoudemire.

    You can vote — and not just if you’re a Republican in Iowa. The NBA opened All-Star Game voting to the fans on Wednesday, so you can pick who will not play any defense in Orlando Feb. 26. Fan voting picks the starters, the coaches for the teams help pick the rest of the squad.…

  23. ‘Melo’s late three against Raptors not a shot D’Antoni loved

    Jan 4, 2012, 2:32 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    With 17.7 seconds left Monday night the Knicks were down three to the Toronto Raptors. With Amare Stoudemire out, everyone west of the Mississippi knew that the ball would be in Carmelo Anthony’s hands. They isolated him on the right side, and he went with the quick pull-up contested three. He missed, Raptors win. That…

  24. Winderman: Meet the new Kobe, same as the old Kobe

    Jan 4, 2012, 10:37 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Courtney Lee, Kyle Lowry

    At the conclusion of Tuesday’s play, only one NBA player was averaging more than 19 shots per game. That player, in fact, was averaging 22.3, essentially putting him in a league of his own. Which, of course, is where Kobe Bryant long has considered himself. The question now is whether 22.3 is too many, whether…

  25. The Nets, “Community,” and the darkest timeline

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:29 PM EST

    darkesttimeline

    In the Community (Thursdays this…. sometime in the coming months… on NBC!) episode “Remedial Chaos Theory,” the writers took the ol’ alternate timeline theory and spread it out like a Nuggets fast break. The concept is simple. The cast of man characters are at an apartment, sitting around a table. The door buzzer buzzes with…
