The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

One sounds more serious than the other.

San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

J.J. Hickson becomes the latest member of the Nuggets to go down with a season-ending injury.

Timofey Mozgov, most famous for getting dunked on by Blake Griffin, can dunk a little bit himself. Just ask Josh Smith. This wasn’t totally Smith’s fault – who was Greg Monroe defending on that pick-and-roll? – but there’s no coming back from that. Smith was ejected later in the game.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to explain how a python ate your family pet… J.J. Hickson/Kenneth Faried, Denver Nuggets. Let’s be clear — Denver snapped the Los Angeles Clippers 11-game win streak because the Clippers were tired and off. The back-to-back with the second game in Denver trap…

The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

Kenneth Faried showed why the Nuggets would have been crazy to trade him at the deadline, as he helped send the Heat to their fifth loss in six games.

Because the Lakers haven’t been embarrassed enough lately… That is Jodie Meeks just getting dropped by Ty Lawson‘s crossover during the Nuggets 134-126 win over the Lakers Friday night in a real defensive struggle. Lawson threw a series of moves at Meeks and got him off balance before dropping the hammer (then making the dish…

The Nuggets got a pretty good bargain signing Nate Robinson to the bi-annual exception. But in exchange for paying Robinson such a low salary, they had to give him a player option for the second season of his two-year contract. That way Robinson wasn’t stuck being underpaid if he had a strong year, and he…

Kenneth Faried? Sure, Kenneth Faried. He’s not the first person to pop into your mind on the list of “guys who pass off the backboard to themselves.” But he did that early on Wednesday night. Most times you see this it leads to a dunk but Faried couldn’t pull that off, he got the tip…

Plenty of teams break out throwback jerseys from time to time, but the one that the Nuggets chose to wear for a home game on March 17 bears some significance that goes beyond just fashion. In the playoffs that year, Denver became the first eight seed to knock off a one seed. The Seattle Supersonics…

Ty Lawson seemed to lose balance slightly while crossing over Corey Brewer, but that’s nothing compared to what happens to Brewer. (hat tip: Ben Golliver of Point Forward)

The Denver Nuggets were 24-24 and hanging in the outside range of the playoff race when Ty Lawson broke his rib. The good news: Lawson is returning. Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post: Ty Lawson (rib) says he will return to action tonight be Minnesota. #Nuggets— Chris Dempsey (@dempseypost) March 03, 2014 He has participated…

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…

Imagining how previous NBA drafts would play out in hindsight is always fun, an instant debate starter for basketball fans. I’m sure we’ve all wasted a countless hours analyzing questions like: Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh No. 3 behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2004? Do half the top-eight picks in 2013 remain in…

A year ago, the Charlotte Bobcats tried to trade Ben Gordon – and apparently couldn’t. A week ago, they tried to buy out Gordon – and apparently couldn’t. But they could waive him. Bobcats news release: Charlotte Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins announced today that the team has requested waivers on guard Ben…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reminding yourself not to make love to a pizza…. Marcin Gortat, Washington Wizards. That is why Washington needed Marcin Gorat. It may have taken John Wall a while to realize it — there were some rough patches at the start — but Gortat has…

It was no secret the Washington Wizards needed point guard help behind John Wall. It’s also no secret the rebuilding Orlando Magic are no longer a great fit for 32-year-old Jameer Nelson. The two teams would have made sense as trade partners before last week’s deadline. In fact, the Wizards reportedly really wanted to be…

Following the latest move by Kevin Love, Nate Robinson has made a run for the border. Robinson is the latest NBA personality to appear in a Taco Bell commercial. It’s a pretty clever idea — undersized Nate Robinson achieving big in every aspect of his life from childhood on. Adding to the cute factor: Robinson’s son,…
