  1. Kobe Bryant starts annual playoff pushing of Pau Gasol

    Apr 18, 2011, 2:23 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Every late April the weather starts to warm, flowers start to poke their heads out of the ground, birds undertake their migrations and Kobe Bryant starts pushing Pau Gasol to be more aggressive. It is one of the rights of spring. It started Sunday night, when Gasol struggled to score or defend the pick-and-roll, two…

  2. NBA Playoffs: The Hornets stun the Lakers

    Apr 17, 2011, 8:02 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    You could hear a pin drop in the Staples Center. The Lakers were supposed to steamroll the short-handed New Orleans Hornets in the first round on their way to a potential three-peat, but the Hornets stunned the NBA world and took game one in the Staples Center. And unlike the Grizzlies’ win, the Hornets’ win…

  4. Chris Paul won’t rule out playing for Jordan in Charlotte

    Apr 12, 2011, 1:29 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Chris Paul — who is eyeing a future outside the Big Easy — knows that rule No. 1 is not to cut off potential opportunities. No matter the likelihood. With that in mind we bring you Chris Paul’s reaction to being asked by the Associated Press if he would return to his native North Carolina…

  5. Chris Paul had knee drained Tuesday

    Apr 7, 2011, 12:33 PM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul looked like, well, Chris Paul on Wednesday night. Houston’s Kyle Lowry was maybe the hottest point guard in the NBA the last few weeks and Paul dominated the matchup. The Hornets got the come-from-behind win. That came one day after Paul got fluid drained from his surgically-repaired left knee, according to the Times-Picayune.…

  6. Do the Hornets have the worst shot selection in the league?

    Apr 5, 2011, 6:23 PM EDT

    Trevor Ariza

    Ryan Schwan of Hornets 24/7 thinks so: Over at hoopdata.com there is a wonderful statistic called XeFG%… [The X] stands for “expected”.  Hoopdata keeps track of how well players shoot from different ranges and calculates the NBA average from each of those ranges.  Armed with that information, the site can determine what the expected eFG%…

  7. Hornets’ David West out for the season with torn ACL

    Mar 25, 2011, 5:22 PM EDT

    david-west-torn-acl

    The Hornets’ David West went down in a heap Thursday night, with what the team officially described as “left knee trauma” at the time. Further tests on Friday revealed the injury to be a torn ACL (according to multiple reports) which will rule West out for the remainder of this season. While the team might…

  8. With West out Hornets likely still make playoffs, just exit early

    Mar 25, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT

    David West

    We’re still waiting for the official diagnosis of David West, but if you’ve seen the video of his injury — if you heard his screams of pain on the game broadcast — you would realize it is not going to be good. He has a long rehab ahead of him, and some serious decisions to…

  9. Coach trying to convince David West to stick with Hornets

    Mar 22, 2011, 3:54 PM EDT

    David_west

    Monty Williams has proven a pretty good coach so far this season. He looks like a lot better coach when Chris Paul and David West are playing. He admits as much. Those also happen to be two guys who can opt out of deals the next two summers. So Williams has set to work. That…

  10. Report: Knicks will pick up option, may even extend Billups deal

    Mar 14, 2011, 11:05 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    Chauncey Billups may not be the ideal point guard for a Mike D’Antoni offense, but he’s the best point the Knicks has had in a long time. So the Newsday report that the team plans on picking up the $14.2 million extension for Billups next season is not a surprise. (The Knicks could buy him…

  11. Chris Paul returns to practice

    Mar 10, 2011, 5:53 PM EDT

    Paul_Chris

    According to the Associated Press, New Orleans guard Chris Paul is back at practice, but has not yet been cleared to play. Paul suffered a mild concussion last Sunday, and is scheduled to undergo a neurological exam on Friday. Paul’s injury puts the Hornets in a tight spot. The dangers of playing with concussions are…

  12. Race to MVP still has five players in the running

    Mar 9, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers, Game 5

    Derrick Rose is not your MVP. Not yet anyway. Dwight Howard is still making his case, while LeBron James’ candidacy is limping like the Heat the last five games. But that could turn around. Right now, we don’t know who the MVP is. Which is a good thing. A real race down the stretch is…

  13. NBA taking serious look at new concussion policy

    Mar 8, 2011, 9:04 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul left the court on a stretcher Sunday. He is still out due to a concussion. Last month, it was the Heat’s Mike Miller missing games (even though they said it was not a concussion). The NBA doesn’t have many formal policies regarding head injuries, something Milwaukee Bucks forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute…

  14. Chris Paul suffers concussion, leaves court on stretcher, but tests negative

    Mar 7, 2011, 12:19 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    That looked scary. It could have ended up much, much worse. In the third quarter us Sunday night Chris Paul drove the lane against the Cleveland Cavaliers, lost the ball, turned his head to find it as he slammed his head into the arm ad shoulders of Ramon Session. Paul collapsed to the floor and…

  15. Is Chris Paul becoming more John Stockton than Isiah Thomas?

    Mar 4, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul insists he’s healthy. He says his knee isn’t bothering him. But if you watched him in December and you watched him in March, you’re going to have a hard time buying it. The question is — will Paul ever be right? I mean right like he was three seasons ago? Maybe it doesn’t…

  16. Hornets want to see new CBA before deciding next step with Chris Paul

    Feb 28, 2011, 12:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    Utah watched the Carmelo Anthony circus unfold, they heard their star point guard Deron Williams talk about waiting to see about signing an extension, they realized that an extended lockout next season could mean little chance to move him. So they shocked the world and sent to New Jersey. Chris Paul could be a free…

  17. Chris Paul is no fan of the Deron Williams trade

    Feb 23, 2011, 2:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    There was a lot of shock going around the league when news broke that the Jazz had traded Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets. Fans, media and players were shocked — and that includes Deron Williams himself. Chris Paul was no fan of the deal, he wrote this on twitter: Utah traded DWill?? #EpicFail…

  18. Knicks not contenders with ‘Melo, but they have hope

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:29 AM EDT

    FIBA Semifinals: USA v Puerto Rico

    Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. —Shawshank Redemption Today the New York Knicks are not title contenders. They got their man — Carmelo Anthony has been acquired to go with Amar’e Stoudemire. But they are still a long way away from the goal.…

  19. Winderman: ‘Melo trade means Knicks now target Chris Paul, Dwight Howard

    Feb 21, 2011, 11:31 PM EDT

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    Don’t even think about exhaling. The trade of Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks does not, finally, put the focus back on the court. Not in today’s NBA, or, more specifically, in tomorrow’s NBA. Think these past months were lessons in abject cruelty in Denver? Then consider what now follows…

  20. Will LeBron James get booed at All-Star Game? (And other things to watch)

    Feb 20, 2011, 3:20 PM EDT

    West team members from left, Kevin Love

    Every road arena LeBron James has stepped into this season, he has been booed. Sometimes loudly, sometimes as a token, but always. Will the All-Star Game be any different? Fans — well, not fans in Cleveland but fans in most cities — seem to be moving on from the drama of the summer. And, this…

  21. Chris Paul fined $15,000 for words with referee

    Feb 11, 2011, 3:34 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    Chris Paul had a chance to win it. Down two on the final play of overtime against the Nets, the Hornets ran a play that got Chris Paul a good look at a three (because Jordan Farmar seemed very lost). The shot rimmed out, but Paul thought he was fouled on the legs. No call.…

  22. Dwight Howard: “I never said I wanted to leave”

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Already there is speculation about what Dwight Howard is going to do in the summer of 2012, with a report that he wants to find a way to the Knicks or Lakers. Dwight Howard himself is sick of it. He tweeted this: “I never said I wanted to leave stop reading the rumors. It’s really…

  23. Does Dwight Howard already have one eye on the door?

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:57 PM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    This is where we are now. When a player is a couple years away from free agency — as Dwight Howard is in 2012 — there will be stories about how if the team doesn’t win a title he is gone. The stories have started about Chris Paul as well, all in the wake of…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Other teams besides the Heat, Celtics and Lakers played Sunday, too

    Jan 31, 2011, 1:11 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    What you missed while falling asleep during the Pro Bowl…. Our man Matt Moore gave you breakdowns on the big games Sunday with the Heat beating the Thunder and the Celtics knocking off the Lakers. Suns 104, Hornets 102: The Suns were the better team for 47:40 but in those final 20 seconds they almost…

  25. Chris Paul thinks Hornets should be on national television. At least once.

    Jan 28, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    Voters — wise folks that you are — swept Chris Paul into a starting spot on the Western Conference NBA All-Stars. When asked about it by Art Garcia at NBA.com and the Hang Time blog he spit out the usual clichés — then he took a little swing at those setting the television schedule. “I…
