Derrick Rose

  1. June draft will be biggest NBA story of 2014

    Jan 1, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    The beauty of sports is that our predictions are often off the mark — like life itself it goes in directions we can’t predict. Still, we have some ideas of what we will look back on in a year as the biggest stories in the NBA for 2014. If the Miami Heat three-peat it will…

  2. NBA says there’s been no increase in rate of ‘significant’ injuries this season

    Dec 30, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Unless you’re a hardcore fan of one of a small group of five NBA teams, the injuries sustained this season to many of the league’s star players have made this a dismal campaign thus far. The Thunder are one of the five, but we’ve seen them have to deal with missed time from Russell Westbrook,…

  3. LeBron James strains groin, questionable for Saturday vs. Portland

    Dec 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    If you were looking forward to a full strength Miami Heat team taking on the Trail Blazers Saturday, you may be disappointed. LeBron James strained his groin in the second quarter of the Heat’s loss to the Kings Friday night and is questionable for the anticipated Saturday showdown, so reports Ethan Skolnick of Bleacher Report.…

  4. Mark Cuban didn’t like sleeved Christmas jerseys, but they didn’t really impact shooting

    Dec 27, 2013, 1:11 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    It was the first question about all the games on Christmas Day: What did you think of the Christmas Day NBA sleeved jerseys? Personally, not a huge fan. It’s not the sleeves, those don’t bother me (I know some people hate sleeves, I just see Patrick Ewing at Georgetown). However, the oversized logos and the…

  5. Latest NBA All-Star balloting released; LeBron, Durant leading vote getters

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

  6. Christmas night NBA grades: Durant is on the nice list, the Nets get a lump of coal

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:26 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that “Christmas Jammies” song out of your head….  Brooklyn Nets not named Deron Williams. If you want to blame everyone in a Brooklyn uniform (ugly, Christmas Day sleeved uniform) for that disaster of a loss, I can’t blame you. They were…

  7. Thunder put on show under bright lights, rout Knicks at Madison Square Garden

    Dec 25, 2013, 5:56 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    This was as bad as Knicks fans have feared. Before the tip the Knicks learned that leading scorer and guy they can’t do without Carmelo Anthony was in fact going to be out due to the sprained ankle suffered Monday. Then once the ball went up for that tip the Oklahoma City Thunder looked every…

  8. Jason Kidd, Brooklyn Nets come up empty against Chicago Bulls

    Dec 25, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    Reggie Evans

    The Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls woke up early, left on their sleeved Christmas pajamas and opened the NBA’s Christmas Day slate. Jason Kidd probably wishes he never got out of bed. A game after blasting his team for “kind of getting comfortable with losing,” Kidd oversaw Brooklyn’s 95-78 loss to Chicago on Wednesday, an…

  9. Carmelo Anthony out with sprained ankle, will not play Christmas Day vs. Thunder

    Dec 25, 2013, 1:52 PM EDT

    NBA: Knicks v Magic

    The best laid plans of mice and David Stern… have been blown up by injuries. In another blow to the NBA’s Christmas Day showcase lineup, Carmelo Anthony will not play due to a sprained ankle suffered Monday night. Anthony wanted to go, came to the arena and met with the team’s medical staff, but the…

  10. Chicago Bulls-Brooklyn Nets is NBA’s worst Christmas Day matchup since…

    Dec 25, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    The NBA has built a Christmas Day empire by featuring the league’s top teams and players on Dec. 25. It’s become an honor to play this day, and those in the league recognize the accomplishment of getting on the schedule. Fans see it too, annually expecting to see the NBA at its regular-season best. That’s…

  11. Bull’s D.J. Augustin takes out a referee

    Dec 20, 2013, 1:28 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin GIF

    Plenty of NBA players have wanted to knock down a referee. D.J. Augustin now of the Bulls (he just signed with them in the wake of the Derrick Rose injury) did so Thursday night, albeit unintentionally. Oklahoma City’s Reggie Jackson and Augustin were chasing down a loose ball and Jackson went for the soccer play…

  12. Report: Bulls not looking to trade Luol Deng. Why would you think that?

    Dec 20, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Luol Deng isn’t going anywhere fast — and we don’t just mean because he’s in a walking boot right now trying to rest his Achilles (he hopes to be back Christmas Day). We mean on the trade market. Ever since Derrick Rose went down injured it has been the conventional wisdom that the Bulls would…

  13. The Extra Pass: Chicago’s never-ending story, plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Nets Bulls Basketball

    In the early days of mixed martial arts, there were quite a few athletes who would refuse to submit in the ring. Their arm could be on the verge of snapping, but it didn’t matter – they wouldn’t give up. They would rather break their arm. I remember holding these athletes in such high regard,…

  14. Thunder remain undefeated at home with easy win over undermanned Bulls

    Dec 19, 2013, 11:22 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant is seen in the second half of their Game 1 NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game against Memphis Grizzlies in Oklahoma City

    Before the season began, an inter-conference matchup between the Thunder and the Bulls seemed like a tasty affair, and one that would be worthy of its mid-December nationally televised time slot. But after Derrick Rose once again went down for the season with an injury, and with Luol Deng missing this one with a sore…

  15. Chicago columnist hammers Derrick Rose as no longer humble star

    Dec 19, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Derrick Rose is loyal. Don’t believe me? Remember when he said he wanted to roll with with Keith Bogans as his two guard rather than recruit other guys to shake up the roster? It’s just who he is. Then came the report out of the New York Daily News (not a local source) that Rose…

  16. LeBron, Kobe top NBA jersey sales list during holidays

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    He’s the reigning NBA MVP, won the last two NBA titles, earned the last two the Finals MVPs… And not surprisingly, LeBron James sells a lot of jerseys. The NBA released the top selling jerseys from the start of this season (October through December this year), which includes the holiday buying rush, and not surprisingly…

  17. Bulls still struggling to space floor without Derrick Rose

    Dec 18, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    John Henson, Marquis Teague, Ersan Ilyasova

    The Bulls shoot 55 percent in the restricted area (29th in the NBA) and 32 percent on 3-pointers (28th in the NBA). That’s a bad combination, and it goes a long way toward explaining why Chicago scores just 95.7 points per 100 possessions, the league’s third-worst mark. But if there’s a bright side for the…

  18. Google’s most searched NBA player in 2013? LeBron. Top trending team? Do you have to ask?

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Google search records are not the best way to test the popularity of something, but it is a pretty democratic way. Bottom line is you find out who people want to find out more about. As a fun little NBA treat, Google released Tuesday their most searched NBA players… and if you have to guess…

  19. Rajon Rondo to make call on Rajon Rondo’s return date

    Dec 16, 2013, 9:36 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The doctors will get their word in — they will have to clear him. But at the end of the day, Rajon Rondo gets to decide when Rajon Rondo returns, something coach Brad Stevens said before the Celtics game Monday night, as reported at Celticsblog.com. “I don’t see how it could be anything else,” Stevens…

  20. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  21. Derrick Rose reportedly worried that Bulls will choose rebuilding over championship contention

    Dec 14, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Entering this season, the Bulls were mentioned in the same conversation with the Pacers and the defending champion Heat as legitimate title contenders in the East. The season-ending injury to Derrick Rose obviously and immediately changed that perception. Rose wants the team to stay intact with the talent it has in guys like Luol Deng,…

  22. Gilbert Arenas wants another NBA chance, notices Knicks, Nets could use help

    Dec 13, 2013, 1:23 PM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas china

    Gilbert Arenas last stepped on an NBA court on May 13, 2012, as a lightly used backup guard for the Memphis Grizzlies. After the last couple years of his career and at age 32, let’s just say it’s a long shot we get to The Hibachi back in an NBA uniform. But he’s hoping for…

  23. Thursday And-1 Links: LeBron James praises Andre Drummond

    Dec 12, 2013, 7:51 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    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. • LeBron James had a lot of good things to say about Andre Drummond:…

  24. Danny Granger now not expected to return Friday. But soon.

    Dec 12, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    We don’t need to tell you the Pacers are doing just fine without Danny Granger — they have the best record in the NBA (19-3) and knocked off the Miami Heat this week. Yet with Granger, they either will improve or they will have a potential trade piece to shop around at the deadline (or…

  25. Tom Thibodeau to the Knicks? Well…

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    Tom Thibodeau is represented by Creative Artists Agency. We have to start there. CAA and the Knicks enjoy an extremely harmonious relationship. The Knicks actually made Mike Woodson fire his agent and retain CAA, according to Howard Beck of Bleacher/Report. Ken Berger of CBSSports.com: Once Woodson switches his representation to CAA, the agency will control…
