  1. Report: Anthony Davis, other Kentucky stars to declare for draft Tuesday

    Apr 16, 2012, 8:48 PM EDT

    Final Four Kentucky Kansas Basketball

    Not even the most die-hard Kentucky fan — say, Ashley Judd — really thought Anthony Davis or the rest of the top players on Kentucky were coming back for another year. That will become reality Tuesday when Davis (the lock No. 1 overall pick and likely franchise player) as well as Terrence Jones, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist,…

  2. Rose is “sick and tired of people trying to take cheap shots”

    Apr 16, 2012, 1:03 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose looked more like he had been in a Blackhawks playoff game than a relatively meaningless, end-of-the-regular season Bulls game. Rose drove the lane in the fourth quarter and journeyman forward Charlie Villanueva gave Rose a hard foul — right across the bridge of his nose. Rose was bloodied, Villanueva got a flagrant foul…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers win fourth in a row without Kobe

    Apr 16, 2012, 8:09 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    What you missed while going on Craigslist to try and find the guy who got you pregnant at that Motorhead concert…. Heat 93, Knicks 85: This potential first-round matchup proved that the Heat’s three stars — they accounted for all but 20 of the Heat’s points on the day — were better than the Knicks…

  4. Video: Derrick Rose jumper sends Bulls into OT vs. Pistons

    Apr 15, 2012, 11:54 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    You can argue if you want the Bulls should not have had to work this hard to put the Pistons away, but there are just days like that in the NBA. Plus, the Pistons will put up a fight at home, have a few quality players and are really the best bad team in the…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Vintage Tim Duncan alert

    Apr 13, 2012, 10:02 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol

    What you missed while debating if you would give up sex for internet access… Bulls 96, Heat 86 (OT): Neither team looked like a playoff title contender, but this win moves the Bulls four games up on the Heat and pretty much cements them in as the top seed in the East. Our own Brett…

  6. Wednesday morning one liners: Golden State eyeing Odom?

  7. Luol Deng to lead trio of NBA players on British Olympic team

    Apr 10, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Great Britain is not a basketball powerhouse. But as the Olympic games are in London this year their usually forgotten national basketball team — overshadowed by the likes of Spain, France and Greece — gets a spot in the big dance. British hoopsters are Olympics bound. And they will have three NBA players on the…

  9. NBA Power Rankings: Who forgot to tell Spurs they are old?

    Apr 9, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Jackson, Gary Neal

    Can you picture a San Antonio vs. Miami finals? It’s not that hard, if you try. 1. Spurs (40-14, last week ranked number 2). Eleven wins in a row and they are percentage points ahead of the Thunder (and one ahead of them in the loss column). Are they title contenders? They have four rings…

  10. Dwight Howard out for Magic Monday, maybe Tuesday

    Apr 9, 2012, 12:23 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    This has nothing to do with his ongoing issues with coach Stan Van Gundy and everything to do with his ongoing problem with back spasms. Dwight Howard will not play for the Magic Monday night when they take on the Pistons (and a quality young center in Greg Monroe), the team announced. Howard is questionable…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls win another without Rose

    Apr 6, 2012, 8:57 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng

    What you missed while watching your kid freak out about the Easter Bunny… Knicks 96, Magic 80: The Knicks are feeling confident and finding their stride as the Magic are coming apart at the seams. The other key — Tyson Chandler is one of the few centers who can match up with Dwight Howard. It…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Turns out LeBron can score a lot

    Apr 4, 2012, 8:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's James drives to the basket as his team plays against the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while watching Baylor win the national title and thinking Brittney Griner can flat out ball…. Heat 99, Sixers 93: The Heat needed a win and they had LeBron James in a scoring mood — those things go together like Oreos and milk for Miami. The result was James putting up a season…

  14. Rip Hamilton could return to Bulls lineup Friday

    Mar 30, 2012, 12:07 PM EDT

    Richard Rip Hamilton

    Bulls fans are not going to believe it until they see him and his mask walk out on the court — and even then they may not be sure. But Richard Hamilton could return to the Bulls lineup Friday night. The Bulls are being their usually overly-cautious selves regarding discussing injuries, but here is what…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Fear Kevin Love

    Mar 29, 2012, 9:17 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Eduardo Najera

    What you missed while tweeting pictures of your food rather than eating it… Knicks 108, Magic 86: It was pretty much a perfect storm for the Knicks, and they need more like it. We broke it all down here. Minnesota 88, Bobcats 83: Kevin Love is in full on NBA2K12 beast mode — he had…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami malaise means another loss

    Mar 27, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwayne Wade and LeBron James talk during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    What you missed while being freaked out by 9-pound Gambian rats…. Knicks 89, Bucks 80: It wasn’t pretty. Actually, it was put-a-bag-over-it ugly. But with this win the Knicks are far more likely to make the playoffs, and it was our game of the night. Pacers 105, Heat 90: I don’t want to go all…

  18. Video: Rodney Stuckey drains game winner for Pistons

    Mar 27, 2012, 2:09 AM EDT

    Kevin Seraphin, Jan Vesely, Rodney Stuckey

    We can debate how the Wizards defended this if you want, but the fact is Rodney Stuckey played it right and drained the shot that gave the Pistons a win in Washington after an impressive comeback. The Wizards blew a double-digit lead in this game, just like they have in their last three losses. Detroit……

  19. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder move up to second spot

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant leaves the court after their NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City

    Some shifting around near the top as the Thunder go up, the Heat drop down and the Spurs hold steady. So do the Bobcats at the bottom. It’s not March Madness, but it is March setting up for a run to the playoffs. 1. Bulls (40-10, last week ranked number 1). With an undefeated week…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Five in a row for the Knicks

    Mar 22, 2012, 9:03 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jrue Holiday

    What you missed while being thankful a rogue boulder didn’t destroy your home and car… Knicks 82, Sixers 79: This was the ugliest win for the Knicks on their five-game winning streak, but it may also be the best. Not the best because it moves them within three games of the struggling Sixers in the…

  21. Video: JaVale McGee game winning putback dunk

    Mar 22, 2012, 3:13 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    JaVale McGee had quite the debut with the Denver Nuggets — 15 points on the night including these two, which won the game. The Nuggets were down 3 to Detroit — mostly because Ben Gordon had gone off for 45 points — when Arron Afflalo made a spinning layup with 5.6 seconds, and drew the…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: Suns are rising, Spurs climb too.

    Mar 19, 2012, 2:27 PM EDT

    John Lucas III, Carlos Boozer

    Trade deadline moves aren’t changing the top of the rankings much, but we will see Portland and some other teams fall in the coming weeks. And we don’t know what the Nets are thinking either, so don’t ask. 1. Bulls (37-10, last week ranked number 1). They beat the Heat without Derrick Rose in the…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bosh looks good in Heat victory

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:10 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while thinking a new study proves your children are brilliant…. Heat 91, Magic 81: Everybody talks about the big man the Heat could use. We often underestimate Chris Bosh — he had 23 points on 13 shots. Dwyane Wade owned the fourth quarter with 14 of his 31 coming then, when the…

  24. Weekend Observations: 25 notes about the trade deadline

    Mar 18, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We’re thee days past the trade deadline. Some players have already landed and played a game with their new teams, some haven’t even arrived in their new destinations (does Hasheem Thabeet really have that busy of a calendar?). But we’re starting to recover from the shock of a still-nuts-if-quieter-than-last-year deadline that saw two coaches let go…

  25. Reports indicate that the Hornets understand the rebuilding process

    Mar 17, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Bismack Biyombo,  Chris Kaman

    I’m about to bring up The Veto again. I don’t want to. I think I’m pretty clear on where I stand on the whole thing. (To catch you up if you don’t read regularly or follow on Twitter, Lakers trade for Paul was bad for both the Hornets and Rockets, but especially the Hornets who…
