    Feb 1, 2014, 1:31 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Denver Nuggets

    That. Is. A. Dunk. The Raptors’ Terrence Ross got a steal and was off in transition. To his credit, Denver’s Kenneth Faried got back and went for the block. He ended up in Terrence Ross’ poster. One of the dunks of the year.

  2. Nuggets’ Nate Robinson has ACL surgery, out for season

    Jan 31, 2014, 10:31 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    Ugh. Another exciting player to watch down for the season. Denver’s Nate Robinson had surgery to repair his torn ACL in his left knee on Friday and he is done for the season, the team reported Friday. “It’s always tough to see one of your players go down with an injury,” Nuggets General Manager Tim…

  3. Denver’s Nate Robinson has sprained ACL, could miss some time

    Jan 30, 2014, 4:15 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    Nate Robinson had started for the Nuggets on Wednesday with Ty Lawson out, but he only played six minutes against the Bobcats when he seemed to tweak his knee, but then he jogged back to the locker room under his own power so it didn’t seem like much to worry about. But he didn’t return…

  4. Report: Philippines wants to naturalize JaVale McGee, Andray Blatche before World Championships

    Jan 30, 2014, 12:07 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Boston Celtics

    Because the JaVale McGee, Andray Blatche pairing worked so well before in Washington…. The FIBA World Cup (what you used to call the World Championships) is coming to Spain this summer and the Philippines team will be there, having qualified as the No. 2 team in FIBA’s Asia tournament (behind Iran, surprisingly). The Philippines were…

  5. PBT Extra: PBT does its own Rising Stars Challenge draft; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…

  6. Nate Robinson previews Super Bowl using pineapple in snow-covered parking lot

    Jan 29, 2014, 1:29 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    Nate Robinson, unabashed Seattle fan living and playing in Denver, was in a grocery store buying a pineapple and that became him on Instagram predicting what the Super Bowl will look like by throwing around the old pineapple skin in the snowy parking lot of said grocery store. I couldn’t have made that up if…

  7. Marco Belinelli confirms he’ll participate in All-Star weekend’s three-point contest

    Jan 29, 2014, 10:13 AM EDT

    Marco Belinelli

    All-Star weekend in New Orleans is a little more than two weeks away, and we’ll be getting official word on all of the events’ participants soon enough. The reserves for each All-Star team will be announced on Thursday (though we already know Joakim Noah is in), and the fields for the dunk contest and three-point…

  8. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Durant powers Thunder to top slot

    Jan 27, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    No Russell Westbrook yet Kevin Durant has pushed the Thunder to the top of the West and the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Still strange to see the Celtics and Lakers near the bottom of the poll, but it’s where they belong this season.   1. Thunder (35-10, LW 4). Kevin Durant is making…

  9. Steven Adams exactly the player, personality Oklahoma City Thunder need him to be

    Jan 27, 2014, 2:57 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    BOSTON – Steven Adams arrived at Notre Dame Prep, as his first American coach put it, “with a guitar and a knapsack.” Ryan Hurd, who coaches the Massachusetts basketball powerhouse, knew his team needed a center, and the highly touted Adams certainly was one. Otherwise, Hurd didn’t know what to expect from Adams, a mid-year…

  10. Denver’s Nate Robinson remains a huge Seahawks fan

    Jan 27, 2014, 12:23 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    Nate Robinson is all about the 206. The Seattle native will hype his native city every chance he gets. He is a huge fan of all things Seattle — the Huskies (where he went to college), the Mariners, the Sounders… And the Seahawks. Who happen to be playing the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl…

  11. The Extra Pass: Kobe’s thoughts on Carmelo Anthony to L.A. speculation, plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 27, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Bryant of the Lakers and All-Star Anthony of the Knicks laugh during the NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    by Brett Pollakoff NEW YORK – When Carmelo Anthony scored a jaw-dropping 62 points in a win over the Bobcats on Friday, he didn’t just set a Knicks franchise record. He took something that belonged to Kobe Bryant. The Madison Square Garden arena record, since the building opened its fourth incarnation in 1968, was set…

  12. Watch LaMarcus Aldridge drop 44 on Denver (VIDEO)

    Jan 24, 2014, 1:10 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    LaMarcus Aldridge was good in the first half Thursday night, scoring 14 points but needing 14 shots to get there. So at the half Denver coach Brian Shaw decided not to make any changes, leaving J.J. Hickson (primarily) on an island with Aldridge. That strategy backfired. In the second half Aldridge dropped 30 points on…

  13. Damian Lillard splits Denver defense, then throws it down. Hard. (VIDEO)

    Jan 24, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    Denver is not exactly a good defensive team, they miss JaVale McGee or anyone who might protect the rim. Damian Lillard took advantage of that Thursday night with a monster dunk. Denver’s players had a front row seat for what was the dunk of the night. Portland went on to win 110-105.

  14. Nuggets have no answer for LaMarcus Aldridge, fall to Trail Blazers

    Jan 24, 2014, 4:22 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    This is how a coaching adjustment can change a game. In the first half, Ty Lawson was getting into the lane and carving up the Trail Blazers — he had 13 points, nine assists and led Denver to 67 first half points. Portland was getting its offense from LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 14 points in…

  15. LeBron, Durant lead Team USA roster pool for 2014 World Championships, 2016 Olympics

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    When Team USA takes the court in Rio in 2016 to defend its gold medal, you can expect to see somethings old and somthings new — guys who won gold in London and Beijing will be mixed with newcomers who got their real first taste of USA Basketball this coming summer in Spain for the…

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Some names leaked yesterday for inclusion on the 2014-16 USA Basketball men’s national-team roster – the pool of players who will be considered for upcoming international events. That includes the World Cup of Basketball this summer, possibly 2015 Olympic qualifiers  – and, of course, the 2016 Rio Olympics. Marc Stein of ESPN beat today’s official announcement with…

    Jan 21, 2014, 3:42 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Gallinari reacts after making a shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    The cavalry — in the form of one of the better shooting power forwards in the game — will not be riding over the hill to save the Denver Nuggets this season. Danillo Gallinari is out for the season. Not that he has played so far this season, but his return was expected. Gallinari has…

  18. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

    Jan 16, 2014, 8:08 PM EDT

    Former Los Angeles Lakers guard Javaris Crittenton appears in Los Angeles Superior Court for an extradition hearing with attorney Brian Steel in downtown Los Angeles

    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. • This is just sad, he had potential — former NBA player Javaris Crittenton…

  20. Dwight Howard declines invitation to participate in dunk contest

    Jan 16, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    dwight howard dunk contest

    Before Dwight Howard alienated fans with the ugly way he exited the Orlando Magic, followed by a severely disappointing stint with the Los Angeles Lakers, he was one of the game’s most popular players, and his participation in All-Star weekend’s slam dunk contest was the primary reason why. Howard pulled off the sticker dunk in…

  21. 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…

  22. Danilo Gallinari says he is not sure when, or if, he returns this season

    Jan 15, 2014, 3:14 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari celebrates a score past the Toronto Raptors in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in Denver

    Denver has been a roller coaster this season — lose eight in a row, win the next five, then get blown out by lowly Utah — and part of that is they miss the consistent scoring (and threat) that is Danilo Gallinari. Last season he was averaging 16.2 points a game and spacing the floor…

  23. Lance Stephenson’s alter ego “Sir Lancelot” wants you to vote for his man for All-Star Game (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

    Lance Stephenson

    Sir Lancelot is emphatic. If nothing else. A lot of players have gone to the Web with attempts at viral videos to get you to vote for them for the All-Star Game (Ty Lawson in Denver was the latest) but most are about as funny as Carrot Top. Lance Stephenson hit it out of the…

  24. J.J. Hickson threw it down hard and Derrick Favors couldn’t stop him (VIDEO)

    Jan 14, 2014, 11:43 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz

    The Suns’ Gerald Green got a lot of play last night for his impressive reverse throwdown on a breakaway, but there were no defenders in his way on that one. That’s why I think J.J. Hickson had the best dunk of the night — the Nuggets’ big man went up as the Jazz’s Derrick Favors…

  25. 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…
