The Al Jefferson Effect: Now that the Bobcats are playoff-bound, how they want their big man to help next

What affect will Jefferson have on the development of Kemba Walker, Bismack Biyombo, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Cody Zeller?

The good news for Brooklyn guard Jorge Gutierrez is he just got picked up for the rest of the season — the Nets had picked him up March 6 on a 10-day contract, gave him another one and now he is part of the team for the rest of the season on a minimum contract…

The Chicago Bulls, at least on some level, aren’t totally concerned with how they fare this season. Derrick Rose is already out for the year, and no matter how well everything else comes together, the superstar’s injury limits the Bulls’ upside in 2014. They already traded Luol Deng for zero assets that will help them…

Blake Griffin was out knocking down midrange shots against the Bobcats but don’t worry Clipper fans, there were still some big dunks. DeAndre Jordan took care of business with this powerful throw down on the Charlotte Bobcats. Of course the dunk of the game almost went to Cody Zeller, but… oh, just short.

After all the times Blake Griffin put guys in posters over the past few years this would have been some Karma… And Charlotte’s Cody Zeller clanked it off the front rim. Check out the reaction of the Bobcats bench. It makes a great GIF. Thanks to SBNation for that.

The last couple years, it has felt going into the season that the road to an NBA title went through Miami. And it wasn’t going any farther. This year it feels far more wide open. Make no mistake, the road goes through Miami and they are saying all the right things about defending their title,…

To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

Last season: Remember when the Bobcats started the season out 7-5 and we all kind of did a double take? That really happened, there was a moment where we wondered if this team wasn’t as terrible as we all thought. Then reality hit. The Bobcats went 14-56 the rest of the season. Charlotte had the…

LaMarcus Aldridge is a two-time All-Star who last season averaged 21 points and 9 rebounds a game. He has a variety of moves he can use to score from the post, has a turnaround jumper that is deadly and unblockable, he has a midrange game you have to respect (he shot 42 percent from the…

Roster consistency is a good thing. Look at the final four teams left standing in the NBA last season — Miami, Indiana, Memphis and San Antonio. Every one of them is consistent. You have to make some moves to get the talent you need, but after that there is really something to be said for…

James Southerland is a 6’8″ forward who averaged 13.3 points per game in his senior year at Syracuse, while knocking down almost 40 percent of his shots from three-point distance. Southerland went undrafted, though he had an offer from the Spurs to take him late in the second round if he agreed to spend this…

There’s a formula for who often wins the Rookie of the year. They have to be a good player, certainly. More than that, he needs to be a player with the ball in his hands and on a team where he is going to be asked to take on a lot of responsibility. Damian Lillard…

I’ll admit that I didn’t really like Cody Zeller going at No. 4 to the Bobcats (soon to be Hornets) when it happened in the draft, that seemed too high. It may still be. But he looked good at Summer League, he was more comfortable away from the basket than I had expected having only…

On the right, that’s Victor Oladipo, the first round pick of the Magic out Indiana, who has some real promise as part of the rebuilding going on in Florida. That is the Oladipo who was posterizing his fellow rookies and likes to wear Google Glass. On the left, that’s Kay Adams, who you certainly know…

Clearly, rookie photo day is taken very seriously. As part of the fun Indiana teammates last year Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller set it up so Oladipo could dunk all over his fellow rookies — on a trash-can rim with what I guess is a NERF ball. Doesn’t matter, getting dunked on is getting dunked…

As we’ve been telling you, Tuesday was Rookie Photo Shoot day in the NBA — we’ve brought you some fun images and a couple good dunks. Tomorrow we’ll have some other fun stuff from the day. But for now here are some of the official photos of the day that I liked. No. 1 pick…
