    Chris Paul

    I’m thankful for a lot of things today. I’m thankful for a job that lets me watch as much basketball as I want. I’m thankful to live in a country where this is possible (and I’m thankful for the people who defend it). I’m thankful for a family that is the best part of my…

    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded.

    Derrick Rose is done for the year and when he went under the knife the Bulls championship dreams for this year went under as well. Does it have to? Can the Bulls retool and make a run this year? No. I’ve been asked that a couple times (via email and on a sports talk radio…

    Nov 27, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Washington Wizards

    John Wall has played pretty well lately. In his last three games, he’s averaging 33.0 points on 61.4 percent shooting, 6.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.7 steals per contest. The Wizards are 2-1 in that span. It’s a fantastic three-game stretch, but let’s not get carried away. Aw, shoot, let’s get carried away. "I'm the…

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki, welcome to the club. That’s the club of star players who have gotten a warning from the league about flopping.

    Nov 23, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins, as we all know, has a short temper. The Clippers, as we all know, aren’t above trying to get under a player’s skin. Put the two together, and you get some fireworks. After the Clippers squeaked out a win at home over the Kings, Cousins wasn’t afraid to show his displeasure with the result.…

  8. Report: Chris Wilcox is Clippers’ backup choice to Lamar Odom

    Nov 22, 2013, 4:28 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Lamar Odom, who recently met with Doc Rivers, clearly is the Clippers’ No. 1 choice to fill their 15th roster spot. But there are no guarantees Odom will be ready by the end of the season, so they can’t bank on him. Marc Stein of ESPN: Lamar Odom remains the leading candidate to be signed…

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  10. Memphis’ Tony Allen suspended one game for kick to Chris Paul’s face

    Nov 19, 2013, 5:20 PM EDT

    Tony Allen

    Tony Allen said as much and I believe him — I don’t think he intentionally tried to kick Chris Paul in the face. I think he got badly burned leapt to cut off a pass that wasn’t coming, realized he was beat and tried to kick the ball to stop the play or foul Paul.…

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

    Kick a guy in the face, you get ejected. That’s what happened with Memphis’ Tony Allen, arguably the best perimeter defender in the league — Chris Paul was driving the lane, Tony Allen leapt and got caught in the air, threw his leg out and it kicked CP3 right across the face. At first glance…

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  23. The Extra Pass: Boxed out and Thursday’s Recaps

    Nov 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    You probably already know what I’m going to say about Shane Battier before I even say it. For 12 seasons, Battier has largely defied conventional box scores by doing all the things that don’t show up there. It’s been a long-standing feud between Battier and the box score, really, but it’s a feud that Battier…

    Nov 7, 2013, 10:16 PM EDT

    d wade

    LeBron James is in the rare situation of being widely recognized as the game’s best player, and few would argue his position in those rankings. But what makes the Miami Heat a championship level team is the star talent surrounding James, and that starts with a healthy Dwyane Wade. Wade is still able to impact…
