    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…

    Jan 23, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    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…

  3. Report: Nuggets’ Gallinari has ACL surgery, done for season

    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…

  4. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. Denver makes video trying to get people to vote Ty Lawson for All-Star Game

    Jan 13, 2014, 4:34 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Lawson celebrates a three-point shot against Golden State Warriors in their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    Not bad Denver Nuggets, not bad. Ty Lawson likely isn’t getting invited to New Orleans for the NBA All-Star game — he’s not in the Top 10 vote getters in the Western Conference backcourt so far this season — but Denver is pushing his candidacy with this video, making light of Lawson’s speed. To me,…

  13. Larry Sanders ejected for elbow to Thunder’s Steven Adams (VIDEO)

    Jan 12, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    larry sanders

    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…

  14. Report: Knicks interested in trading for Andre Miller

    Jan 11, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    The Knicks have been playing better lately, winning four of their last five despite the fact that they’re dealing with injuries to the likes of Pablo Prigioni and Tyson Chandler, along with the internal team suspension of J.R. Smith. New York needs a talent upgrade somewhere to continue this recent uptick, and even if the…

  15. 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…

  16. Streaky Nuggets run past sleepy Thunder for easy win

    Jan 10, 2014, 3:01 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Remember just a week or so ago when the Denver Nuggets had lost seven in a row and looked like a team destined to fall far out of the playoff picture in the West? Now the Nuggets have turned it around with four straight wins, and while they are not in a playoff spot yet…

  17. Report: Kings offer Marcus Thornton or Jimmer Fredette for Andre Miller

    Jan 9, 2014, 12:34 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    We already knew a couple parts of the equation. First and foremost, we knew the Denver Nuggets have been trying to trade Andre Miller, and wanting that to happen sooner rather than later. We also knew the Kings have been very aggressive in trying to land Miller. They are aggressive on the trade market in…

  18. 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…

  19. Andre Drummond runs back on offense with Pistons still on defense

    Jan 7, 2014, 9:00 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    If JaVale McGee gets a hard time for this: Andre Drummond deserves a little chastising for this. (hat tip: commenter ProBasketballPundit for the video) Amar’e Stoudemire squares up shoots a jumper with 9:58 left in the second quarter of Tuesday’s Pistons-Knicks game. Drummond runs out to contest it. Then, Drummond backs away as the shot is…

  20. Report: Warriors among teams interested in trading for Kirk Hinrich

    Jan 7, 2014, 5:42 PM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    It would be a mistake to use the word “tank” with any Tom Thibodeau coached team, because he would not allow his teams to roll over like that. However, with the trade of Luol Deng it is clear Bulls management has moved on from trying to win this year (they brought the band back to…

  21. Report: Denver hopes to move Andre Miller in next 48 hours, Kings aggressive in talks

    Jan 6, 2014, 7:37 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets

    It looks like Andre Miller has played his last game as a Denver Nugget. That the Nuggets and coach Brian Shaw can’t make it work with a crafty veteran guard popular with his teammates is an interesting dynamic, but not the one we are focused on right now. Everyone knows the Nuggets want to move…

  22. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Golden State climbing rankings fast

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The top two teams in the East are the top two teams on PBT’s Power Rankings, but with their current nine-game win streak Golden State has moved in as the top ranked team in the West. If they keep defending like this they are legitimate contenders come playoff time.   1. Pacers (27-6, Last Week…

  23. Report: Nuggets actively trying to trade Andre Miller

    Jan 6, 2014, 10:11 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    Andre Miller was suspended two games by the Nuggets following a public confrontation with first year head coach Brian Shaw that occurred on the sidelines during a loss to the Sixers. The team later rescinded the suspension, but only as a peace offering to Miller so he would paid for the two games he missed.…

  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. Nuggets rescind Andre Miller’s suspension. Not that he is getting on the court.

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets

    The Denver Nuggets had suspended Andre Miller two games after his consecutive games played streak was snapped at 239 games with a DNP-CD by Brian Shaw — Miller lashed out at his coach on the bench. Friday the Nuggets chose to rescind that suspension. But don’t read too much into that, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of…
