    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    All-Star Weekend is in the rear view mirror, the NBA trade deadline is just more than two weeks away (March 15), so now the focus of the NBA world becomes this: Where will Dwight Howard be playing March 16? There are 8 million rumors out there in the naked city right now, here is where…

  2. Video: One last look back at All-Star Game highlights

    Feb 28, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    Today the second half of the NBA season tips-off, but before we go there — and into the realm of Dwight Howard trade rumors — let us take one last look back at some highlights from the 2012 NBA All-Star Game. This is the “phantom” style video from the fine folks at NBA.com, where they…

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports sits down to talk about the All-Star Game, the repercussions of Dwyane Wade‘s foul on Kobe Bryant, how the Mavericks can make a run at Deron Williams and Dwight Howard, and if Steve Nash could head to… Orlando?

    Heat's Wade and James watch teammate Chalmers compete in three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    With no games after Thursday, we don’t have a lot of movement in the standings this week, but we tie in some All-Star Weekend notes and look ahead at the second half for teams. 1. Heat (27-7, last week ranked 1). LeBron James’ All-Star performance is what fans seem to expect from him — 36…

  5. Winderman: Sacramento arena win just first step for Kings

    Feb 27, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    The victory by the Sacramento Kings over a new arena and long-term franchise stability is an encouraging one for small markets throughout the NBA. The Kings, thanks to the efforts of Kevin Johnson, the nation’s best ball-handling mayor, now will have a stable home for years to come. But a building only ensures residency, not…

  6. Momma says: Dwight Howard’s mom reportedly wants him to stay in Orlando

    Feb 27, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Dwight Howard has a big decision on his hand. He reportedly hasn’t retracted his trade demand, nor has he decided where he explicitly wants to go. The Magic haven’t decided to actively pursue offers, choosing to wait and see what happens after they offer another extension after March 1st. So in general, nothing new to…

  7. Video: What super powers would NBA players want?

    Feb 27, 2012, 10:34 AM EDT

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    The Baketball Jones guys kill it again. All through All-Star Weekend you have to suffer through players answering terrible questions (same thing happens at the Super Bowl). Jeremy Lin does a press conference on Friday and the first question is about his NBA 2K12 score and what he thinks of it. Ugh. But if you…

  8. Recapping PBT’s coverage of All-Star weekend from Orlando

    Feb 27, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    After four exciting and exhausting days in Orlando for All-Star weekend, it’s time for PBT to get out of town. The weather was good, and the city itself might be great, but we wouldn’t know due to spending the entire time shuttled between hotels, convention centers, and of course, the Amway Center downtown. Speaking of…

  9. Monday And-1 links: All-Star Weekend notes edition

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    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). All weekend Deron Williams got asked about Jeremy Lin again and again — not his favorite topic, as you might guess — but he did…

  10. Deron Williams says Nets ready for weeks of speculation

    Feb 27, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    It’s about to become the only think anyone talks about. Through All-Star Weekend, Dwight Howard was able to keep a lid on the speculation about whether or not he will be traded. But that is about to change. The Magic players and front office staff are going to be asked constantly about whether or not…

  11. Your 2012 All-Star Game winners and losers

    Feb 27, 2012, 12:01 AM EDT

    NBA/

    It’s an exhibition, but it’s still a competition. Someone has to win (the West, 152-149). Someone has to lose. We’re here to sort it all out for you. The winners. The losers. And even how you can be both. Winner: Kevin Durant. The game MVP did it all — he had maybe the best dunk…

  12. Kevin Durant wins 2012 All-Star MVP, West beats East 152-149

    Feb 26, 2012, 11:56 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    The 2012 NBA All-Star game started off as a blowout, but ended up being competitive to the final possession. Kevin Durant and LeBron James tied for the game-high in scoring with 36 points each, but Durant got the MVP nod as his West squad held on to win in exciting fashion, 152-149. Durant started off…

  13. Dwight Howard isn’t talking trade, but everyone else is

    Feb 26, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    Three times on Friday and Saturday I heard a reporter try to broach the topic of trade demands and where he might play in the future with Dwight Howard, and every time he has responded that he is not talking about anything past All-Star Weekend. “The situation we are in right now is All-Star Weekend.…

  14. Your Lakers trade rumors and speculation of the day

    Feb 26, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum, Byron Mullens

    I’m just going to put this one out there, and let you decide how you feel about it. Peter Vescey of the New York Post, yes, him,  has a post describing the Dwight Howard situation and the Lakers’ involvement. Apparently there’s been an offer, and apparently it was shot down. From the Post: “I can…

  15. Video: Paul George’s glow-in-the-dark dunk from All-Star Saturday night

    Feb 26, 2012, 11:22 AM EDT

    paul-george-glow-in-the-dark

    The 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk contest seemed to be all about gimmicks, and Paul George of the Indiana Pacers was the one who led the charge. This glow-in-the-dark dunk wasn’t a bad idea in theory, but he didn’t glow nearly enough for us to get a good enough look at that athletic, 360 windmill jam…

  16. Grading Dunk Contest dunks: Evans and Budinger get an A

    Feb 25, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    It was not a great contest, and worst of all it felt scripted, like the Kardashian “reality” shows. But I guess that’s where we’ve gotten to with the All-Star Dunk Contest. It’s style over substance. And only a couple dunks really impressed We’ve graded all 12 dunks from the contest (from A to F, like…

  17. Jeremy Evans wins 2012 Slam Dunk Contest

    Feb 25, 2012, 11:57 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz was a late addition to the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk contest, only getting in after the Knicks’ Iman Shumpert bowed out due to injury. But he made the most of it, and the best of his three dunks — a leap over a seated Gordon Hayward, who threw two…

  18. David Stern defends Dwight Howard’s right to leave Orlando

    Feb 25, 2012, 8:46 PM EDT

    David-Stern-all-star-2012

    NBA commissioner David Stern held his annual All-Star weekend press conference from the Amway Center in Orlando on Saturday, and not surprisingly, one of the first questions that came up was about Dwight Howard. Howard, as you may have heard, is an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, and he’s gone back…

  19. The league was nice enough to pair Dwight Howard up on a community service trip with Deron Williams

    Feb 25, 2012, 1:35 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Practice

    The Nets want Dwight Howard. And not in the “well, if you’re available, we’d love to have coffee with you” way. More in the “blurting out ‘I love you’ on the first date and talking about how easy you are to get into bed” way. The only way this gets more intense is if Mikhail…

  20. Dunk Contest gives Evans, others chance to make name for themselves

    Feb 25, 2012, 9:50 AM EDT

    Jeremy Evans

    There is no Blake Griffin. No Dwight Howard. Not even a Nate Robinson. The NBA’s All-Star Saturday Night Dunk Contest is a showcase event this year filled with a bunch of names that had casual fans saying, “who is that?” But for Jeremy Evans, it’s a chance. Evans is a human pogo stick — the…

  21. As expected, Dwight Howard dances around trade questions

    Feb 24, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    “The situation we are in right now is All-Star Weekend. That’s the only thing that matters right now. This is for the fans and we’re going to enjoy ourselves.” “All that stuff can go on after the All-Star break.” That is pretty much what you knew Dwight Howard was going to say when asked about…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs look good at the rodeo

    Feb 24, 2012, 9:44 AM EDT

    DeJuan Blair, Al Harrington

    What you missed while on a red-eye flight to Orlando for the All-Star Game (wait, that was me)….. Heat 102, Knicks 88: Jeremy Lin and Baron Davis combined to shoot 1-for-18 on the night, do that against the Heat and you know the result. Brett broke this out for us as a game of the…

  23. Don’t expect Dallas to make a trade deadline deal. Unless…

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    The defending NBA champions started slow — we’ll call it a championship/lockout hangover — but have found their footing of late. Despite all the roster changes this summer they look good — Dirk Nowitzki is healthy again and their offense is clicking. But the Mavs don’t as good as Oklahoma City in the West. Or…

  24. Oscar Robertson tells Dwight Howard to “keep mouth shut”

    Feb 23, 2012, 2:59 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    What LeBron James did, what Carmelo Anthony did, what Dwight Howard is doing — that does not sit well with an older generation of players. Say, for example Oscar Robertson. Mr. I averaged a triple-double for an entire season. One of the game’s 50 greatest players (easily). Robertson — one of the trail blazers of…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lin, ‘Melo play together well

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    What you missed while stacking 2.5 feet of pancakes… Warriors 106, Suns 104: We have other details, but you really should just click this link to see Monta Ellis’ game winning shot. Knicks 99, Hawks 82: It was just a second game with everyone healthy on the Knicks, but you could see an improved chemistry.…
