  1. Warriors fans hijack Mullin number retirement to boo owner

    Mar 20, 2012, 1:59 AM EDT

    Lacob Chris Mullin AP

    I’ve never seen a number retirement ceremony go badly before. I have now. Chris Mullin was having his number retired by the Golden State Warriors Monday night, but when owner Joe Lacob took the microphone — right after Mullin — fans unleashed a torrent of boos. You can see it in the video above. Why?…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. The Warriors aren’t exactly ‘all-in’ with Stephen Curry, would have traded him for Bogut if necessary

    Mar 17, 2012, 10:37 AM EDT

    stephen curry

    The Warriors really wanted Andrew Bogut. You can argue about whether they should have wanted the 27-year-old injured center who has said his elbow will never recover fully from the horrific fall it suffered and who is currently out with an ankle fracture. But for the Warriors, the trade this past week of Monta Ellis and…

  5. NBA trade deadline report cards: Portland gets an “A”

    Mar 15, 2012, 8:04 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace, Raymond Felton

    Dwight Howard didn’t get traded and neither did any of Boston’s big three. But there were plenty of moves at the deadline. Here are our grades for each team. Atlanta Hawks: They wanted to move one player to get themselves under the luxury tax line (they are $440,000 over it). They couldn’t do it. So…

  6. Spurs trade Richard Jefferson to Warriors for Stephen Jackson

    Mar 15, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    stephen-jackson-spurs

    The Spurs have acquired Stephen Jackson from the Warriors in exchange for Richard Jefferson, according to a report from Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. Golden State will also receive a conditional first round draft pick as part of the deal, according to Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group. Jackson wasn’t with the Warriors…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls beat Heat even without that Rose guy

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James is guarded by Chicago Bulls' John Lucas and Luol Deng during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while waiting for Dwight Howard to change his mind again…. Bulls 106, Heat 102: This just shows the different mentalities of these two teams. No Derrick Rose, no Richard Hamilton and yet the Bulls just brought it with fantastic energy. They defended, guys like John Lucas III (24 points) and Jimmy Butler…

  9. Warriors may shut down Stephen Curry, can look forward to questions about tanking if they do

    Mar 14, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    stephen curry

    Stephen Curry has had a hard time staying healthy. He’s tweaked his surgically repaired right ankle more times this season than we’d like to count, including in Phoenix back on Feb. 22, and most recently in a win over the Mavericks on March 10. With the Warriors making the deal Tuesday that sent Monta Ellis…

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

    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…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Hope in Orlando… maybe

    Mar 14, 2012, 9:26 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard and Miami Heat forward LeBron James talk during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Orlando

    What you missed while suddenly caring about what happens to Western Kentucky’s basketball team…. Magic 104, Heat 98 (OT): Let’s not read too much into one game. I know Dwight Howard is talking about wanting to stay and contend with this team, but I’m not on board with them as contenders yet. That said, they…

  12. Warriors reach deal to send Ellis to Bucks for Bogut, Jackson

    Mar 13, 2012, 9:03 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis, Chris Singleton

    What happened to the Golden State franchise that would only trade Monta Ellis to Orlando if they got Dwight Howard back? This isn’t that. In the first of the deadline trades this year, Golden State will send Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown to the Milwaukee Bucks for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson. Adrian Wojnarowski…

  13. Report: Warriors owner kills Monta Ellis to Orlando

    Mar 13, 2012, 1:07 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Do the Orlando Magic want to acquire Monta Ellis in a desperate effort to prove to Dwight Howard how they want to keep him and put real talent around him? You bet they do. But it takes two teams to make a trade, and reports out of the Bay Area have consistently said they would…

  14. Magic may want to land Ellis, but trade complicated, unlikely

    Mar 13, 2012, 10:33 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis, Chris Singleton

    It looks more and more like the Orlando Magic are going to go with the Jerry West philosophy and call Dwight Howard’s bluff — go ahead and leave us and that guaranteed $30 million on the table. (Which is not really $30 million, really, but we’ll get to that.) What’s more, they are trying to…

  15. Report: Magic working on three-team deal to get Monta Ellis

    Mar 12, 2012, 5:37 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    I am starting this post off with a disclaimer: Take this actual report with a grain of salt. It is a long, long way from reality. I bring you this more as a way of discussing the mindset in Orlando. A report from Real GM (via IamaGM) has the Orlando Magic working hard on a…

  16. Report: Injured or not, Warriors may make run at Andrew Bogut

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:06 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bogut may not be available until the playoffs at best. The Golden State Warriors are not making the playoffs. (Sorry Warriors fans, I know it’s mathematically possible, but you need to accept it. You can’t keep the same mediocre roster and expect different results.) Still, the Warriors are looking to make a run at…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls, Heat own top two spots. Again.

    Mar 12, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The trade deadline could really shake up the power rankings… but probably not. 1. Bulls (34-9, last week ranked number 1). The Bulls keep winning while they are banged up — Joakim Noah is back Monday for the Knicks but Luol Deng and Richard Hamilton are out. Those wins are really impressive. But the big…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: What kind of team are the Knicks?

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:07 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    What you missed while thinking if you are going to have two wives you may want to get off Facebook…. Lakers 97, Celtics 94: This rematch of a couple recent finals — which looked like those finals if you squinted really hard — was our game of the day. Sixers 106, Knicks 94: How this…

  19. Wednesday And-1 links: Kobe’s black facemask disappears

    Mar 7, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    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). Kobe Bryant in a black facemask was an idea that died on his 1-6 shooting start Tuesday night. Not that he got a lot better…

  20. Catching up with Lenny Cooke, the former can’t-miss kid

    Mar 6, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Lenny Cooke

    So many things can happen to high-school phenoms. Kobe Bryant is a five-time NBA champion. LeBron James is a two-time MVP. Dwight Howard is the best center in basketball. Sebastian Telfair is a mediocre backup point guard who has bounced around the league. Jeremy Tyler is currently trying to pay his dues in the D-League.…

  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. Report: Nuggets put “Birdman” Chris Andersen on trade block

    Mar 5, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    CAnderson_necktat

    At the San Francisco Chronicle, they have done a detailed team-by-team breakdown of trade options for the Warriors. For example, they say Golden State doesn’t want to do a Stephen Curry for Rajon Rondo swap with Boston (the Celtics wouldn’t do that one either). But when it got to Denver there was an interesting note:…

  23. Monday And-1 links: A couple rumors, Kobe’s mask, more

    Mar 5, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Pau Gasol

    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). The Clippers and Timberwolves have some interest in Jamal Crawford of Portland and trade talks may follow. Crawford was brought in after the Brandon Roy…

  24. Video: Monta Ellis with circus layup against Toronto

    Mar 5, 2012, 10:08 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Monta Ellis is one of the most entertaining scorers in the league and this 360 reverse layup from Sunday’s game against the Raptors is a must see. With the Warriors scoring just 28 points in the second half, it pretty much took shots like this for them to get buckets. And it’s nice to see…

  25. Magic try to bring in players like Nash not ship Howard out

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Steve Nash Dwight Howard

    Orlando is not ready to trade Dwight Howard. They may not be by March 15, but they certainly are not right now. In fact, multiple reports have them working the phones trying to bring in more talent to put around Howard rather than ship him out. And they know to keep him they can’t just…
