The rivalry continues.
Clippers’ Dahntay Jones fined $10,000 for bumping into Warrior’s Draymond Green during television interview

That’s an expensive bump.

Last season: It was the end of an era. Josh Smith‘s final season in Atlanta ended the only way it really could: with plenty of ill-advised shot attempts, tons of highlight-reel plays, and probably most importantly, another early playoff exit. After a first round loss to the Indiana Pacers in six games, it was fair to yet…

At this point, the free agent cupboard is pretty bare, and a number of teams have filled out their rosters anyway. Let’s just be honest — if you’re still on the free agent market there is a reason. Still, there are a few teams still looking to add player 14/15 to the roster off minimum…

For the owners, pretty much half the reason for the lockout last year was to put in place an economic system that prevents stars from doing what the Miami Heat did with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. (Technically they still could have done that because they stripped the roster all the way down…
Are Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson ‘the greatest shooting backcourt in the history of the game,’ as Mark Jackson says?
Apr 25, 2013, 4:44 PM EDT
Warriors point guard Stephen Curry just completed the best 3-point shooting season of all time (3.6 3-pointers made per game, 45.3 3-point percentage), and Golden State shooting guard Klay Thompson had a pretty good year outside the arc, too (2.6, 40.1). Mark Jackson even called them “the greatest shooting backcourt in the history of the…

Kobe Bryant tried to play on his sprained ankle Friday night, because he’s Kobe. But that led to 12 minutes of playing, 0-4 shooting as he had no elevation or separation from defenders, and then the next morning his ankle was worse. So he sat out Sunday night, a Lakers win over the Kings at…

In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I discuss Thursday night’s games, which included a throwback performance from Tim Duncan to lead the Spurs past the Mavericks, and a big night from Damian Lillard to get the Blazers a win over the shorthanded Knicks. We then discuss the injury situation surrounding New York,…

There’s not a lot new here in terms of substance — the night Kobe Bryant went down with a sprained ankle and was saying it was a dirty play by Dahntay Jones, Jones was on twitter defending himself. Then Jones went on the radio and defended himself. Friday he was on the Dan Patrick show…

If you’re talking NBA on Thursday you’re talking Kobe Bryant, his ankle and what it all could mean for the Lakers playoff chances. That’s where Kay Adams and I start our conversation. I think their chances of making the playoffs is still pretty good — not because the loss of Kobe doesn’t hurt them (their…

The NBA’s league office agrees with Kobe Bryant. Not that it does any good. Kobe said after the game that Dahntay Jones intentionally stepped under him, didn’t give him room to land and that led to Kobe getting a sprained ankle. Kobe said Jones should have been called for a foul. The league issued a…

Dahntay Jones has been hearing it from everyone today — Kobe Bryant has vociferous defenders online and in the media, and when he sprained his ankle then said and tweeted he felt it was intentional, the attack dogs came out. And a lot of people such as TrueHoop’s Henry Abbot (certainly not always a Kobe…

Just when you thought the Lakers were past the injury bug that plagued their early season. Kobe Bryant is out indefinitely with severe ankle sprain suffered in the closing seconds of the Lakers loss in Atlanta Wednesday, according to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell. Kobe said after the game this was as bad a sprain as…

The idea of Paul Pierce in an Dallas Mavericks uniform just seems… wrong. Yet apparently it was closer to happening than we knew. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was listening to offers and talking about maybe blowing up Boston and restarting, but the conventional wisdom was he wouldn’t go through with it. But he almost did,…

A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

We didn’t get any blockbuster trades at this year’s NBA trading deadline. We saw Rudy Gay moved a few weeks before and J.J. Redick did get moved just before the deadline. But a lot of what happened at the deadline was smaller deals that slid under the radar. Here is a quick wrap-up of those…
