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

    Jan 12, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    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,…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kobe drops another 40

    Jan 12, 2012, 7:58 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while you tried to shame your kid into behaving…. Clippers 95, Heat 89: The game where the rims were afraid was our game of the night. Lakers 90, Jazz 87 (OT): The Lakers might not have gotten to the overtime without Kobe Bryant dropping 40 points — but when Kobe went cold…

  3. Bulls’ Derrick Rose sits due to sprained toe

    Jan 11, 2012, 9:47 PM EDT

    Anthony Randolph, Luke Ridnour, Derrick Rose

    If you wondered just what happens to the Chicago Bulls offense when Derrick Rose isn’t there to create everything, watch Wednesday night’s game. Rose did not suit up against the Wizards and John Wall due to a sprained big toe. “It’s a pain tolerance thing. It’s a sprain. He’s gotten a lot of treatment. He…

  4. Bulls make Mike James second NBA call-up from D-League Showcase

    Jan 11, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    Mike James

    The NBA Development League Showcase is designed to allow its top players a chance to show NBA decision makers that they’ve developed enough to make in the NBA. Erie BayHawks point guard Mike James came into the league without much developing left, but he took full advantage of having NBA decision makers witness his comeback…

  5. Larry Brown wants “badly” to coach again, not sure it happens

    Jan 11, 2012, 12:15 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    Aggrey Sam sums it up well in one line of his interview with Larry Brown — the legendary coach “likely forgotten more basketball than anybody reading this has ever seen.” He’s won an NBA title with the Pistons, an NCAA title with Kansas, took UCLA to the final four and even took the pre-Griffin Clippers…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nate Robinson beats the Heat

    Jan 11, 2012, 7:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while being addicted to cracking your knuckles… Wizards 93, Raptors 78: The Wizards win! Theeee Wizards win! Warriors 111, Heat 106: This was another Miami route, they were up 17 late in the third quarter, but then Nate Robinson happened. And then Dorell Wright happened. And suddenly Mark Jackson and the rebuilding…

  7. Report: Team USA sets 19 players for preliminary Olympic roster

    Jan 10, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    The USA will send 12 men to London this summer to suit up and defend America’s gold medal from the last Olympic games. And that dozen will come from these 19 guys, according Chris Sheridan at SheridanHoops.com who broke the story of the preliminary roster. We’ve broken them out by position (they are alphabetical in their…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Knicks love their ‘Melo iso

    Jan 10, 2012, 6:39 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats' Diaw fouls New York Knicks' Anthony during their NBA basketball game in New York

    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…

  9. Report: Four 2008 Team USA members on the out, roster to mix 2008 and 2010 gold medal teams

    Jan 7, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Beijing Olympics

    Team USA begins its preparation for the 2012 Summer Games this month. It will release the 18-man roster under consideration for final inclusion as the 2012 U.S men’s basketball team and ESPN reports that there will be some changes from the 2008 squad that won gold in Beijing. The new team will reportedly feature combined…

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

    Jan 5, 2012, 4:14 AM EDT

    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. Gerald Henderson took it to Landry Fields at every turn. The Charlotte Bobcats outworked a Knicks team that has a lot of talent but looks…

  11. Courtesy of a technical difficulty: A brief, precious symphony of basketball

    Jan 4, 2012, 7:03 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Every Tuesday, Turner Sports allows NBA fans worldwide to decide which game will be broadcast — in glorious high definition — nation-wide on their basketball-only network, NBA TV. “Fan Night” is the channel’s most overt catering to the game’s faithful, and a nice treat for basketball fans that, for whatever reason, opt not to invest…

  12. Rip Hamilton back in Detroit… but as a Bull. That’s weird.

    Jan 4, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    I’m still not used to it. Richard Hamilton is a Chicago Bull now and — when healthy and in the lineup — a key part of the diversification of the Chicago offense. He’s fitting in well. But it still seems a little weird to see the facemask and headband with a Bulls uniform, not a…

  13. NBA releases All-Star ballot, here are my early votes

    Jan 4, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    All-star-nba-logo0103_rdax

    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.…

  14. Wednesday And-1 links, where Wade is eating plant food

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    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). Dwyane Wade is eating Chlorophyll as part of his new diet. Seriously. Is Zach Randolph’s knee injury worse than the Grizzlies first let on? We…

  15. Ugly but exciting, Bulls come from 19 down to beat Hawks

    Jan 4, 2012, 1:38 AM EDT

    Jimmy Butler, Luol Deng, Taj Gibson, Carlos Boozer

    There were moments in the second quarter — when at one point the Bulls were 1-of-12 shooting and the Hawks 3-for-13 — when this contest made you want to weep for the game of basketball. The art of shooting felt like it had been set back 50 years. Then the ending redeemed all that is…

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

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    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…

  17. LeBron thinks London Olympic team compares to Dream Team, too

    Jan 3, 2012, 2:21 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Beijing Olympics

    Team USA is not backing away from filling the big shoes. Last week USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo said he thought the upcoming USA Olympic team was a “fair comparison” with the 1992 Dream team that featured Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and others. LeBron James thinks Colangelo is right,…

  18. Dwyane Wade says 2012 will be his last Olympics

    Jan 2, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade Team USA Olympics

    Dwyane Wade is considered one of the locks for the 2012 USA Basketball roster for the London Olympics. He has Olympic experience helping the USA get the gold medal in Beijing, he is probably the best two guard in the game today and in what should be an up-tempo affair he is one of the…

  19. Monday And-1 links: More LeBron hairline jokes

    Jan 2, 2012, 11:14 AM EDT

    LeBron James Hairline Getty

    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). Happy birthday LeBron, you’re bald. Michael Beasley’s finger injury Sunday seemed pretty bad — especially the part on television where you could see him say…

  20. Dwyane Wade compares Ricky Rubio to Steve Nash

    Jan 2, 2012, 10:40 AM EDT

    Timberwolves Rubio Arrives Basketball

    There’s a long way to go in Ricky Rubio’s career — he’s just 21. We feel like we’ve been hearing about him forever because he burst on the scene at the highest level of Spanish basketball at age 16, but he is still very young. Even at 21 he has the court vision and sense…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Denver makes lay-ups, beats L.A.

    Jan 2, 2012, 2:38 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while breaking your New Year’s resolutions already… Nuggets 99, Lakers 90: Best game of the night and there was a little fire to this one — second nights of a home-and-home often carry over some tension. Denver jumped out early with Kobe Bryant shooting only 1-of-10 in the first half and the…

  22. 100 early season observations

    Dec 31, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    We lost basketball this year. Precious, sweet basketball. And even though most of the lockout happened in the offseason, those days were still slogs through disappointment and frustration. So to mourn those days and celebrate the first week of professional basketball this season, here are 100 observations on the early season. 1. Lob City’s a…

  23. Rip Hamilton feels like it’s sweet home Chicago

    Dec 31, 2011, 8:30 AM EDT

    Richard Rip Hamilton

    Richard Hamilton is feeling comfortable with the Bulls. Not completely with his teammates yet, that’s a work in progress (albeit one that is making great strides). No, Hamilton is comfortable with the expectations in Chicago — title expectations. “I love it because this is what it’s supposed to be,” Hamilton said after he had 16…

  24. Clippers put on a show, Bulls play defense and get victory

    Dec 31, 2011, 2:17 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Rose tosses the ball in front of Los Angeles Clippers' Paul after the Bulls turned the ball over during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Clippers are pure Los Angeles now — entertainment with some basketball thrown in as a bonus. The Clippers are a show and Staples Center was filled and buzzing like a movie premiere — people want to see Chris Paul throwing lobs to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. They wanted and got Derrick Rose vs.…

  25. Report: Rose on verge of $250 million deal with Adidas

    Dec 30, 2011, 9:55 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose Playing Fans at 'Run with D Rose'

    Derrick Rose said at the press conference for his recent contract extension that he really doesn’t know how much money he makes. Let me help you out a bit Derrick — you are about to make mountains of cash. Adidas is about to give Rose a lifetime contract worth about $250 million, according to ESPN.…
