  1. NBA tells LeBron to ditch the black mask and wear a clear one instead

    Mar 1, 2014, 1:08 PM EDT

    New York Knicks vs Miami Heat

    UPDATE 1:08 am: LeBron James will not wear his black mask Saturday night when the Miami Heat will go against the Orlando Magic. Instead, he will choose from a series of league-approved options with various levels of tint but all somewhat clear, reports Michael Wallace of ESPN. The team had not reached out to the…

  2. Fan runs on court to talk to Kyrie Irving, gets tackled, arrested by security (VIDEO)

    Mar 1, 2014, 12:54 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Cleveland Cavaliers

    This is getting disturbing — three times in the past year a fan has gotten on the court in Cleveland. First there was the “LeBron come back guy” last season, then there was the guy who ran out wearing the Kyrie Irving don’t leave shirt earlier this season. Friday night another person ran out on…

  3. Kyrie Irving shows fun personality, good Bane impersonation in interview (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2014, 7:33 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Who knew Kyrie Irving did an impressive Bane impersonation? It’s better than his Stewie Griffin interview, both of which he breaks out in this interview on “The Pete Holmes Show.” This is a fun side of Kyrie with his guard down, thought it was worth passing along.

  4. Report: Bulls and Cavaliers interested in Jimmer Fredette

    Feb 27, 2014, 2:31 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Sacramento Kings

    Jimmer Fredette, who will soon be bought out by the Sacramento Kings, doesn’t run an offense well, and he’s too small to play shooting guard regularly – though he defends both backcourt positions poorly, anyway. There’s a reason the Kings didn’t pick up the fourth-year option on his rookie contract and are buying him out…

  5. Kyrie Irving drops Thabo Sefalosha with crossover (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2014, 11:12 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Houston Rockets

    That is a sick crossover. Early on in what ended up being an interesting Cavaliers win over the Thunder, Kyrie Irving reminded us he has got some wicked moves. Thabo Sefalosha is a good on ball defender and Irving dropped him with a crossover. Just dropped him. Irving went on to score 31 and had…

  6. Extra Pass: Cleveland Cavaliers built playoff-caliber team, but that won’t mean enough

    Feb 27, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Luol Deng, Kevin Durant

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are a playoff-caliber team that is extremely unlikely to make the playoffs. With a 114-104 win Wednesday, the Cavaliers extended Oklahoma City Thunder’s losing streak to a season-high three games. Unlike the previous two teams to defeat the Thunder, the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland is fancied by nobody as a…

  7. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about that Kyrie Irving?

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:05 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

  8. Report: Knicks will sign Shannon Brown, Earl Clark to 10-day contracts Thursday

    Feb 26, 2014, 11:49 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Portland Trail Blazers

    With the Miami Heat next up on the schedule, the New York Knicks are looking to bring in some guys who can defend on the perimeter. As opposed to what they have now which is essentially orange traffic cones to dribble around on your way to the lane. Enter Earl Clark (who we told you…

  9. Report: Knicks close to deal with Earl Clark

    Feb 25, 2014, 5:12 PM EDT

    Earl Clark, Miroslav Raduljica

    The New York Knicks are looking for defensive help. As they should be if you’ve watched any of their games recently. Which is why they are close to bringing in free agent Earl Clark. A deal is near, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The New York Knicks are finalizing an agreement with free-agent forward…

  10. Report: Kyrie Irving’s camp has made it known for years he wants to play somewhere else

    Feb 25, 2014, 2:30 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cavaliers have been an unmitigated disaster this season, and we may be seeing just the beginning of the team’s problems if they can’t figure out what to do with their All-Star point guard, Kyrie Irving. It’s a bit premature to be discussing his status, considering that Cleveland can hang onto him for two more…

  11. Tom Thibodeau refuses to play your speculation game

    Feb 24, 2014, 3:19 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    Tom Thibodeau is a very good basketball coach. Tom Thibodeau has had his run-ins and disagreements with Chicago Bulls management over the years, including concerns recently about the Luol Deng trade. Other teams are known to covet Thibodeau as a coach. The New York Knicks are said to be one of those teams. What the…

  12. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Heat on the top, Sixers fall to very bottom

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:49 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors vs Miami Heat

    We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

  13. Achilles injury may have influenced teams against trading for Luol Deng

    Feb 23, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Jimmy Butler, Luol Deng

    It became clear shortly after Luol Deng arrived in Cleveland that his stay with the team wouldn’t extend beyond this season. Deng was reportedly shocked by the internal chaos going on with the Cavaliers, so much so that any chance of him re-signing there as an unrestricted free agent this summer completely disappeared once he…

  14. Sixers waive Earl Clark, he’ll become a free agent

    Feb 21, 2014, 2:46 PM EDT

    Earl Clark, Miroslav Raduljica

    This was expected and it didn’t take long. The Philadelphia 76ers picked up Earl Clark from Cleveland as part of the Spencer Hawes trade. With all the players Philly picked up in a flurry of moves at the deadline they had 16 players on the roster, one more than the league maximum. Someone had to…

  15. The Extra Pass: What’s behind the slow trade deadline

    Feb 21, 2014, 8:06 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    That makes two years in a row. There was more activity at the 2014 NBA trade deadline than in 2013 (25 players got moved this year), but once again the deadline was about shifting around bench players and cap space, there were no difference makers moved. Of the 25 players who changed teams at this…

  16. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  17. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  18. Sixers trade Spencer Hawes to Cavaliers

    Feb 20, 2014, 10:05 AM EDT

    Spencer Hawes

    The Cavaliers continue their quest to try to recover from a series of unsuccessful moves that were all meant to propel the team into the playoffs this season. Cleveland has acquired Spencer Haws from the Sixers in exchange for two second round draft picks, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. CSNPhilly.com…

  19. Trading for a star mid-season to make an immediate impact? Don’t count on it

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony

    The Luol Deng trade gave us something we hadn’t seen in three years – a star dealt mid-season. The trade might even give us something we haven’t seen in even longer – a star dealt mid-season actually improving his new team. Teams make mid-season trades for several reasons, but we’re going to examine one archetype…

  20. Tuesday night NBA grades: Carmelo Anthony loves playing in New Orleans

    Feb 20, 2014, 5:29 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Orleans Pelicans

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while worrying about our national clown shortage… Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks. New York picked up a win in New Orleans because of Carmelo Anthony (who seems to play well in that city as he had monster numbers in the All-Star Game, too). He poured…

  21. Report: Luol Deng won’t sign extension with any team, limiting Cavaliers chances of trading him

    Feb 19, 2014, 6:18 PM EDT

    Jimmy Butler, Luol Deng

    The Cavaliers were so desperate to make the playoffs this season, they traded for Luol Deng without any guarantee he’d stay with Cleveland this summer. Deng’s production has fallen off, though the Cavaliers were so deficient at small forward, he’s actually helped them (8-10 with him, 13-23 without him). Still, Cleveland is three games out…

  22. Wednesday And-1 links: Trade rumor updates, mostly bad news if you want trades

    Feb 19, 2014, 5:59 PM EDT

    Grizzlies' Tony Allen celebrates on the bench during the third quarter in Game 3 of their NBA Western Conference final playoff basketball series against the San Antonio Spurs in Memphis

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Today we start off with a heavy dose of trade rumor updates. • Talks between Memphis and Minnesota on…

  23. Report: Nets agreed to deal to get Marcus Thornton from Kings; Nets near adding Hill from Lakers

    Feb 19, 2014, 2:25 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Sacramento Kings

    We passed along the report this trade was being discussed yesterday. Apparently it’s about to be much more than discussed, and with that the Nets continue to laugh at the NBA’s new, stiffer luxury tax. The Nets and Kings have agreed in principle to a trade that would send Marcus Thornton to the Nets in…

  24. Report: Cavaliers testing trade market for Luol Deng

    Feb 19, 2014, 11:31 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Dallas Mavericks

    Cleveland brought in Luol Deng because owner Dan Gilbert laid down a “playoffs or bust” mandate and then GM Chris Grant realized they were more bust — even in the lowly East — so he tried to add an All-Star level player at their weakest spot. That likely will not work (Cleveland is three games…

  25. Dion Waiters leaves with injury after throwing down monster dunk against Sixers (VIDEO)

    Feb 19, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    dion waiters

    Dion Waiters is known for being a bit of a chucker if you’re the glass-half-empty type, or perhaps as a deadly outside shooting threat if you’re feeling more positive. On this play from Tuesday night’s win over the Sixers, however, he showed that he has the athleticism to attack the rim with the best of…
