  1. Wednesday And-1 links: Calipari to Wizards, other rumors

    Mar 14, 2012, 11:56 AM EDT

    NCAA Men's Final Four - Kentucky v UConn

    Here is our daily 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). John Calipari to coach the Wizards after Kentucky loses in the NCAA Tournament finals? Let’s just say it is out there and the guy who…

  2. Derrick Rose fined $25,000 for comments about officials

    Mar 13, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Rose tosses the ball in front of Los Angeles Clippers' Paul after the Bulls turned the ball over during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    We told you this was coming, and here it is. Derrick Rose has been fined $25,000 by the league for comments made about officials after the Bulls beat the Knicks Monday night. Yes, the Bulls won but Rose was still frustrated. What did Rose say that was so egregious? Well… “I’ve got to be the…

  3. Frustrated Derrick Rose criticizes referees, fine coming soon

    Mar 13, 2012, 10:55 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    Derrick Rose is a smart man, he knew as he was ripping the referees after the Bulls win over the Knicks Monday night that a fine would be forthcoming. But the man with the new big contract with the Bulls — not to mention a new big deal with Adidas — seemed to think the…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another day, another Knicks loss

    Mar 13, 2012, 7:56 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Chandler is defended by Chicago Bulls' Asik, Gibson and Butler during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while getting Michael Jordan’s likeness shaved into your hair… Celtics 94, Clippers 85: The Celtics sucked all the fun out of Lob City, and it worked for them in our game of the night. Timberwolves 127, Suns 124: It was a shootout in the desert, and our own Brett Pollakoff was there.…

  5. Dwight Howard just wants to win. Which is why he’s refusing Chicago, still. Obviously. Because that makes sense.

    Mar 11, 2012, 9:40 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Derrick Rose

    Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the Magic finally have a team they’re willing to trade with, who wants Dwight Howard. One problem, he doesn’t. Howard has long said that all that matters to him is winning. That that’s what’s important. Which is made clearly by the fact he doesn’t want to go to… Chicago?…

  6. Video: Dwight Howard scouts Bulls imitating Shaq, Barkley

    Mar 9, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    Dwight Howard was joking around before his team went out and beat the Bulls Thursday night and gave his scouting report on the team — while doing an imitation of Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley. Watch this or we’ll just give you another Dwight Howard trade rumor. Don’t make us do that. We feel like…

  7. Report: Magic seek package similar to ‘Melo deal for Howard

    Mar 9, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard;  Jerryd Bayless ; Chris Duhon

    Orlando still has not decided that they are going to trade Dwight Howard — in fact, they seem to be leaning toward keeping him through the trade deadline and the end of the season — but if they do move him they are letting teams know what they want: A haul like Denver got last…

  8. Video: Derrick Rose beats the buzzer for three

    Mar 9, 2012, 8:25 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    The Bulls may not of have won Thursday night, but Derrick Rose still put on quite a show. That includes this buzzer beater just before halftime from about 30 feet out. By the way, Joakim Noah got an assist on this play… pretty generous score keeping but okay. The Bulls could have used a little…

  9. Orlando tries to send message to Howard: Look, we can beat Bulls

    Mar 9, 2012, 12:19 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Everything Orlando does for the next 6 days is colored by Dwight Howard trade talk. That includes their 99-94 win over Chicago Thursday night — the Magic are trying to convince Howard that they can be contenders with him in tow if they just make a couple tweaks. Beating the actual contenders from Chicago and…

  10. Derrick Rose is just like you — sick of Dwight Howard talk

    Mar 8, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Derrick Rose

    Are you sick of all the Dwight Howard rumors and talk? Derrick Rose is. Many Bulls fans have an odd obsession with Howard — they are offended Chicago is not on his list of preferred destinations because they see a Rose/Howard pairing as a cornerstone that can contend with the Heat. They see Howard as…

  11. Do you need a closer to win in NBA? George Karl says no.

    Mar 8, 2012, 7:21 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    It looks great when Derrick Rose makes the sweet crossover and drains the jumper to win the game. Hero ball makes heroes when it works. But the league’s best “closers” miss more of those shots than they make. As we start to get more and more information that look at situations and players we learn…

  12. Is Tony Parker the fastest point guard in the NBA?

    Mar 8, 2012, 5:50 PM EDT

    Parker of the Spurs competes in the skills competition during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando, Florida

    It’s a great barstool or blog comment debate: “Who is the fastest point guard in the NBA?” Derrick Rose? John Wall? Russell Westbrook? Kyrie Irving? Nope, try Tony Parker. Advanced stats are trying to answer all our debates — who is the best guy to trust with a game-winning shot? — and one of them…

  13. Thursday And-1 links: Derrick Rose Don’t Dance

  14. Stephen Jackson would love to play for Bulls, but really just wants to play

    Mar 8, 2012, 10:29 AM EDT

    Stephen Jackson

    Stephen Jackson is one name that is going to come up in a lot of trade rumors in the next week for two reasons: One, the guy has a long history of being able to put the ball in the basket, and at the end of the day that is still the name of the…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the living game-winning shot

    Trevor Booker

    What you missed while realizing you figured out who is going to win the Darwin Award this year…. Sixers 103, Celtics 71: This battle for the top spot in the Atlantic division — and the four seed at least in the playoffs, allowing a team to avoid Miami and Chicago in the first round —…

  16. Video: Jordan Farmar with game-winning three to beat Clippers

    Mar 8, 2012, 12:54 AM EDT

    Kris Humphries, Jordan Farmar

    In looking at Derrick Rose‘s game winner for the Bulls Wednesday, I questioned the wisdom of Milwaukee not doubling him and making any other Bull beat you. The Clippers did that — they started to gravitate toward Deron Williams and if he had gone to shoot two or three defenders would have been there to…

  17. Video: Derrick Rose with game-winning dagger against Bucks

    Mar 8, 2012, 12:12 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    How do you stop that? What you see above is Derrick Rose with the wicked crossover on Brandon Jennings to create space then the step-back jumper to give Chicago a 106-104 win. The Bucks decided not to trap Rose and make him pass the ball — make any other Bull beat them but the reigning…

  18. Bulls catch break: Hamilton day-to-day with shoulder bruise

    Mar 6, 2012, 5:19 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    There was a lot of worry around the Chicago Bulls when Richard Hamilton left the game Monday night — he had missed more than half of the Bulls games this season and this latest shoulder injury seemed like it could be one that kept him out a while. But the Bulls catch a break. Here…

  19. Tuesday And-1 links: Kyrie Irving will not play for Australia

    Mar 6, 2012, 11:08 AM EDT

    Cavaliers Irving reacts to making a three point basket in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    Here is our daily 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). Kyrie Irving is not going to be on Team USA in London in 2012, but he had a standing offer from Australia (he was born…

  20. Rip Hamilton injures shoulder, could be out a while

    Mar 6, 2012, 10:14 AM EDT

    Richard Hamilton

    Well, on the up side the Bulls are used to playing without Richard Hamilton in the lineup. And they may be for a while — Rip injured his shoulder in the Bulls win Monday over the Pacers. There are not a lot of details but what Aggrey Sam found out for CSNChicago.com doesn’t make it…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kevin Love outduels Blake Griffin

    Mar 6, 2012, 7:43 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is fouled by Los Angeles Clippers forward Reggie Evans in Minneapolis

    What you missed while buying way more Girl Scout cookies than you really should… Thunder 95, Mavericks 92: Oklahoma City scored the final eight points to win another close contest, which was our game of the night. Timberwolves 95, Clippers 94: With all their mistakes late, I have no idea how the Timberwolves pulled this…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s the Deron Williams show

    Mar 5, 2012, 5:18 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while suing your college because your dorm roommate had too much sex… Celtics 115, Knicks 111 (OT): Rajon Rondo dominated Jeremy Lin, put up a monster line — 18 points, 20 assists, 17 rebounds — and got the Celtics a big win in one of our games of the day. Lakers 93,…

  23. Newest New York Ranger says Jeremy Lin can punch him

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:45 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v New York Knicks

    This is why you should be reading ProHockeyTalk… The New York Rangers have a new enforcer, John Scott. (For you hoops fans wondering what an enforcer does, think Charles Oakley if the NBA let him fight.) Before he was a Ranger he played for the Chicago Blackhawks. He and some Blackhawk teammates had taken in…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls look every bit the contender

    Mar 1, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Ronnie Brewer, Joakim Noah

    What you missed while realizing that it’s time to turn off the autocorrect on your phone before someone gets hurt…. Bulls 96, Spurs 89: That is why the Chicago Bulls are contenders. They played a fantastic game behind Derrick Rose, who had 29 points and made all the big plays at the end, including a…

  25. Report: Celtics “aggressively” shopping Rajon Rondo

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:23 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo (9) shoots over Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    You know changes are coming to the Boston Celtics over the next few months — if not at the trade deadline certainly over the summer. The logical progression seemed to be the older “Big Three” — Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett — would be on their way out and Rajon Rondo would be…
