  3. Joakim Noah has sprained thumb, will play through it for Bulls.

    Mar 7, 2014, 11:08 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Detroit Pistons

    Joakim Noah is playing the best basketball of his career the past few weeks and the Bulls are the third best team in the Eastern Conference. With Derrick Rose down and Luol Deng traded Noah has become the fulcrum of the Bulls offense, and it’s working as Noah has had a triple double in two…

  4. Report: Derrick Rose wants Bulls to sign Carmelo Anthony

    Mar 7, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s connect the dots. Joakim Noah is reportedly recruiting Carmelo Anthony to the Bulls. Melo has a son named Kiyan, who turns 7 years old today. Happy Birthday, Kiyan! Kyian’s favorite player is reportedly Derrick Rose. The missing dot: Derrick Rose. What does he think about all this? Chris Broussard of ESPN: One source also…

  5. Report: Joakim Noah recruiting Carmelo Anthony to Chicago Bulls

    Mar 6, 2014, 10:36 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Joakim Noah, Carmelo Anthony

    Reports Carmelo Anthony could sign with the Chicago Bulls this offseason are nothing new. Even Melo has stoked the flames of the rumors. But most published work on the subject has focused on where Melo desires to play. Sure, by trading Luol Deng for Andrew Bynum and draft picks, the Bulls signaled a greater interest…

    Mar 5, 2014, 8:47 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    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. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Pharrell Williams loves the Arby’s hat… • Roy Hibbert got a new…

  7. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  8. Kobe Bryant says Lakers’ revenge will be “sweet” and “quick”

    Mar 3, 2014, 1:16 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Press Conferences-Media Availabilty 2014

    This would be the definition of playing to the fan base. Although I’m sure Kobe Bryant believes it. There has been plenty of schadenfreude around the league — from other front offices to other fan bases — as the Lakers have fallen into being a hot mess this season. They entered the season with a…

  9. The Extra Pass: Recapping the 2014 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference

    Mar 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…
