  1. The Extra Pass: Vince Carter had a front row seat for the “Miracle on Hudson” plane crash

    Jan 16, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

  2. Clippers end wild game on 11-0 run to come back, beat Mavericks

    Jan 16, 2014, 2:45 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    LOS ANGELES — If the ball hadn’t been orange with David Stern’s signature on it rather than red, white and blue I would have sworn this was an old ABA game. It was fast paced with all kinds of offense, questionable defense, a ton of threes, some chippy play, and huge runs — the Los…

  3. Wednesday night NBA grades: Greg Oden is back — that is a story worth celebrating

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering what kind of Little League coach sues one of his 14-year-old players… Greg Oden, Miami Heat. He made it back, and that is the story. Tonight he had six points on 2-of-3 shooting in 8:24 on the court — what matters is that…

  4. Suspended North Carolina guard P.J. Hairston headed to D-League

    Jan 14, 2014, 5:15 PM EDT

    North Carolina v Kansas

    UPDATED 5:15 pm: It’s official, P.J. Hairston is a member of the D-League’s Texas Legends, the team has announced. Hairston becomes the first player ever to start the season in college and jump to the D-League, and while North Carolina could use him the NCAA declared him ineligible. “We are excited to add a player…

  5. Mark Cuban good with NBA admitting referee mistakes, wish it would happen more

    Jan 14, 2014, 11:22 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    The Dallas Mavericks have benefitted from two late game bad calls by the referees this season — the one above where Monta Ellis clearly fouled Austin Rivers on the final shot, and one earlier in the season that wasn’t quite as egregious but still a foul, when Shawn Marion clipped Kevin Love on the arm.…

  6. The Extra Pass: Rudy Gay taking control of his own story in Sacramento; plus Monday’s recaps

    Jan 14, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    NBA: Sacramento Kings at Miami Heat

    The Memphis Grizzlies traded Rudy Gay and reached the Western Conference Finals. The Toronto Raptors traded Gay and are streaking toward home-court advantage in the first-round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Regardless of anything Gay did, his perceived value dropped considerably in the last two years. But might Gay be taking control of his own…

  7. Larry Bird beat J.R. Smith to shoelace stunt

    Jan 13, 2014, 8:18 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    J.R. Smith was put through the ringer last week for untying Dwight Howard’s shoe, untying Shawn Marion’s shoe and gesturing to untie Greg Monroe’s shoe. Smith was fined, benched, told to grow up by his coach and shamed by the NBA’s most powerful writer. So why didn’t Larry Bird get the same treatment after his…

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    Here are the weekly PBT power rankings, with some improving teams out of New York. For you fans in Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, Minnesota and Memphis — teams with dreams of the Western Conference playoffs — know that the pace right now is 47-48 wins just to get the 8 seed.

    The Mavericks hung on for a 110-107 win over the Pelicans on Saturday, and Monta Ellis hacked the heck out of Austin Rivers on the game’s final play to ensure that would be the case. No foul was called by the officials at the time, however, and a day later, the league issued a statement…

    In the second quarter of the Bucks’ loss to the Thunder on Saturday, Larry Sanders took himself out of the game. He delivered a couple of elbows above the neck to OKC’s Steven Adams, and the refs saw that activity and ruled it a flagrant foul. After video review, they determined it was a flagrant…

  12. The Extra Pass: J.R. Smith’s ‘joke gone wrong’ has him questioning his Knicks future

    Jan 10, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    J.R. Smith

    NEW YORK – J.R Smith hasn’t played well enough this season to deserve either the minutes he’s been given, or the simple benefit of the doubt. And on Thursday night before a nationally televised game against the defending champion Miami Heat, Knicks head coach Mike Woodson finally did something about it. Speaking to reporters more…

  13. Knicks coach Mike Woodson says he’s done talking about J.R. Smith, who may have been benched vs. Heat

    Jan 9, 2014, 9:01 PM EDT

    Woodson JR Smith

    NEW YORK – J.R. Smith has been a distraction for the Knicks this season, not only because his play has been nowhere near the level it was a season ago when he took home Sixth Man of the Year honors, but also because of some nonsense that’s garnered the team the wrong kind of attention.…

  14. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  15. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

  16. Knicks J.R. Smith fined $50,000 for trying to untie players’ shoes

    Jan 8, 2014, 1:23 PM EDT

    J.R. Smith

    J.R. Smith got caught Sunday untying Shawn Marion’s shoe Sunday during the Knicks win over Dallas — watch the video above, where during Dirk Nowitzki’s free throws Smith bends over, pretends to check his own shoes and unties Marion’s. He got a warning from the league but there was no fine for it. However our…

  17. Kevin Garnett explains Joe Johnson’s nickname: ‘Joe Jesus’

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Kevin Garnett used to play with someone nicknamed Jesus Shuttlesworth, but Garnett has tried to erase Ray Allen from his life. Now, Garnett is playing with a new teammate he calls Jesus: Joe Johnson. “He might not be there when you call on him, but he’s there when you need him,” Garnett said in the…

  18. J.R. Smith untied Dwight Howard’s shoelace before Shawn Marion’s, then reportedly blames Howard for inspiring trick

    Jan 8, 2014, 11:10 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

    J.R. Smith has some nerve. He got got caught untying Shawn Marion’s shoelaces, talked his way out of a fine and then pretended to pull the same stunt against Greg Monroe (though I can buy the possibility Smith was joking when he reached toward Monroe’s shoe and had no true intention of grabbing the lace).…

  19. The Extra Pass: Quiet Jazz and Tuesday’s recaps

    Gordon Hayward

    For the most part, the Utah Jazz typically fly under the radar. Occasionally they’ll pop up after unexpectedly beating a contender, like they did last night with a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. But other than that? You won’t hear much out of Utah. No real trade rumors, no murmurs of unhappiness, no headline…

  20. J.R. Smith warned but not fined for untying opponent’s shoes, tries it again anyway (VIDEO)

    Jan 7, 2014, 9:31 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    You’ve got to love J.R. Smith, at least to a certain extent. During Sunday’s win over the Mavericks, Smith untied Shawn Marion‘s shoe while the two were lining up to rebound a free throw attempt. Multiple reports, including this one from Marc Berman of the New York Post, say that the league issued a warning…

  21. Mavericks’ “Anchorman” video is pretty funny

    Jan 6, 2014, 4:07 PM EDT

    Ron Burgundy Participates In KXMB TV Bismarck Newscast

    This is almost funnier than “Anchorman 2.” The latest from the Mavericks’ marketing department has Dirk Nowitzki, Shawn Marion, Samuel Dalembert and even Jose Calderon doing a little take on Anchorman. Complete with mustaches and bad blazers. As noted by Kelly Dwyer at Ball Don’t Lie, this video of the Dallas “starting five” features six…

  22. Samuel Dalembert suspended by Dallas Mavericks for oversleeping, arriving late to workout

    Jan 6, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert, Mike Dunleavy

    Samuel Dalembert overslept, keeping him from a Dallas Mavericks practice. Samuel Dalembert overslept, keeping him from a Dallas Mavericks practice. This is not a recording. The center slept too long and was late to a Mavericks workout, which caused Dallas to suspend him for its 92-80 loss to the New York Knicks on Sunday, according…

  23. Kobe Bryant thinks you should be voting younger guards into All-Star Game

    Jan 6, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    kobe all-star 2013

    You want Kobe Bryant to start in the All-Star Game… well, maybe not you personally, but people do. Like that guy in front of you in line at Starbucks this morning. Blame him. Fan voting has Kobe Bryant well out in front as a starting guard for the West in the 2014 All-Star Game. Chris…

  24. The Extra Pass: Why D’Antoni is the right man for the job; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 6, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni and Dwight Howard react on the sidelines as the Lakers trail the Los Angeles Clippers, and after Howard fouled out of the game, during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    You may consider this curious timing to take up for Mike D’Antoni, considering his Lakers just gave up 137 points at home to a Denver Nuggets team that can best be described as “meh.” Believe it or not, though, pulling the wool over your eyes isn’t my intention here. Let’s be truthful: D’Antoni’s teams really…

  25. Watch J.R. Smith untie Shawn Marion’s shoe during game (VIDEO)

    Jan 6, 2014, 12:36 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    Classic. Watch the video above — not Dirk Nowitzki taking free throws, but on the left watch J.R. Smith bend down like he’s checking his shoes and untie Shawn Marion‘s shoe while the free throw is taking place. Marion goes down and plays the defensive possession out then you can see him as the team…
