Golden State Warriors

  1. Hornets find some interest in Kaman trade, but not much

    Jan 30, 2012, 11:54 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman

    Chris Kaman is going to be sitting on the Hornets bench until he is traded. He could be sitting a while. The Hornets have gotten some calls from teams interested in acquiring the veteran center, reports the Times Picayune. That is different from saying those teams are making offers New Orleans has any interest in.…

    Jayson Williams

    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). Former Net Jayson Williams is now the “Moses of Rikers.” Can you blame all the problems in your life on Minnesota GM David Kahn? Maybe.…

  3. Kevin Durant: “Who cares who’s better, Westbrook or me?”

    Jan 28, 2012, 9:27 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Kevin Durant honestly doesn’t get why people think he and Russell Westbrook can’t coexist. They have had some friction, but so has every team that won a title. You think it was a bowl of cherries to practice with Michael Jordan? Durant genuinely could not care less who scores the most points, who gets the…

  4. Blake Griffin heads 2012 rookie deal extension class

    Jan 27, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin slam dunks against Memphis Grizzlies Hamed Haddadi of Iran and Dante Cunningham during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook got theirs. Kevin Love got a deal, as did Danilo Gallinari. Eric Gordon and Brook Lopez did not. And nobody seriously considered giving Michael Beasley one. It’s the first extension to the rookie contract — the first chance for NBA players to make serious, serious money. But as we saw…

  5. Friday And-1 links: Would you bet on Giants/Knicks to pull a title double?

  6. Video: Painting Yao Ming portrait using basketball as brush

    Jan 24, 2012, 8:42 PM EDT

    Yao Ming

    I find this fascinating — a woman paints a portrait of Yao Ming, in Rockets red (or China red, if you prefer), using a basketball as a brush. It’s technically impressive, and a good portrait. All sorts of questions here. Why? Is it better to use a synthetic ball because the paint adheres better than…

  9. Michael Jordan is mentoring Gerald Henderson

    Jan 22, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    Michael Jordan’s legacy as a “teacher” or someone who passed the game on isn’t exactly sterling. He pretty much killed Kwame Brown‘s soul, and has never been known to take a special interest in any of his players on the Wizards or Bobcats. Jordan is known to have ridiculously high standards, keeps a close circle…

  10. NBA admits refs missed a huge call at the end of the Pacers’ win over the Warriors

    Jan 21, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    George Hill, Darren Collison

    Kevin Love‘s big shot to beat the Clippers may have been the big story in the NBA on Friday, but there was another play near the end of regulation in the game between the Pacers and the Warriors that was just as exciting. Only with that one, the NBA admits the officials made a horrible…

  11. Friday And-1 links: JaVale McGee’s mom loves her son

    Jan 20, 2012, 11:10 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Welcome to our 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). JaVale McGee’s mom loves her son, even if her defense of him shows a few blind spots. As a parent, I can relate… except my kids…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s Bizzaro World night in NBA

    Jan 19, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

    Andray Blatche Wizards

    What you missed while watching the Australian Open and thinking “I need to go to vacation there”…. Wizards 105, Thunder 102: Yes, you are reading that right. The worst team in the NBA (1-12 entering the game) just beat a title contender (12-2 before this started). It gets weirder — Oklahoma City shot 48.1 percent…

  13. It may seem like it, but lockout does not equal more injuries

    Jan 17, 2012, 5:36 PM EDT

    Curry injured AP

    You knew this would come — the talk around the league that the lockout and shortened training camps had led to more injuries, more sprained ankles and more traumatic injuries. anecdotal evidence seems to back that up. Al Horford is down for the season after surgery to repair his pectoral muscle Tuesday, a similar injury…

  14. Tuesday And-1 links: Portland’s sell out streak in jeopardy

    Jan 17, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Welcome to our 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). Portland’s 166 game sellout streak is in danger of coming to an end. Which speaks more to the condensed schedule and the economy than it does…

  15. Draft class of ’08 not getting many contract extensions

    Jan 16, 2012, 9:02 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Pop quiz: How many players out of the 2008 NBA draft have gotten the early extensions to their rookie deals as of now? Answer: One. Derrick Rose. That could change a little over the next 10 days — Jan. 25 is the deadline to do an early extension — but only a little. As David…

    Jan 16, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose listens to coach Tom Thibodeau during their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Chicago

    Miami tripped up out West and the Bulls ran over them on the way to the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Meanwhile, jump on the Sixers bandwagon while you can. 1. Bulls (12-2, last week ranked No. 2). Five wins in a row and their next five games are against teams under .500, so…

  17. Monday And-1 links: Schedule wearing everyone down

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to our 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). Is fatigue setting in for the Chicago Bulls? Maybe a little, but it is the same for every team. Yao Ming is getting into politics in…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Who needs Manu?

    Jan 16, 2012, 1:41 AM EDT

    Steve Nash Tony Parker

    What you missed while thanking you deity of choice that we don’t have to see any more “discount double take” commercials the next three weeks. Please tell me we don’t….. Spurs 102, Suns 91: Even without Manu Ginobili, the Spurs have more depth than the Suns, and that came through in this game. Tim Duncan…

  19. Ish Smith out, Earl Barron in for Golden State

    Jan 13, 2012, 10:53 PM EDT

    Ish Smith

    Kwame Brown got hurt in Golden State, and that has had the trickle down impact to other guys on the roster. Ish Smith, who had played well in limited minutes for Golden State this season, has been let go, reports the Contra Costa Times. He had not played much has a PER of 17.6 (above…

  20. Magic, Warriors GMs meet, Dwight Howard doesn’t care

    Jan 13, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    What did Magic General Manager Otis Smith and Warriors GM Larry Riley talk about when they had lunch together Thursday in Oakland? Probably how much they hate random Internet speculation. Nonetheless, that’s what we’ve got. The two did meet for lunch, reports Matt Stenmetz of CSNBayArea.com. And as we know from last week the Warriors…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: it’s a free throw-a-palooza

    Jan 13, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    What you missed while trying to beat up a police officer with a stuffed monkey…. Cavaliers 101, Suns 90: Kyrie Irving had his best game ever matched up against Steve Nash. Our own Brett Pollakoff broke it down as our game of the night. Magic 117, Warriors 109: Mark Jackson decided the best strategy was…

  22. Dwight Howard sets record with 39 free throws in game

    Jan 13, 2012, 2:00 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    New Warriors coach Mark Jackson set the strategy — hack-a-Howard. Golden State intentionally fouled Dwight Howard all game long. In addition to the times they just fouled him as he attacked the rim — the Warriors tried to single-cover him with David Lee and other players who just are not big enough The result was…

  23. Kwame Brown to have shoulder surgery, out three months

    Jan 12, 2012, 4:50 PM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    Kwame Brown, the Warriors new starting center and key to their defensive presence in the paint, will be out at least three months if not the rest of the season due to shoulder surgery, reports Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com. The surgery will repair a torn muscle in his shoulder suffered on a hard foul by…

    Jan 12, 2012, 2:28 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant chews on his jersey during NBA game in Los Angeles

    It’s the question Lakers fans are asking Thursday — can Kobe Bryant sustain this? He scored 48 against the Suns Tuesday and 40 against the Jazz and long-time nemesis Raja Bell on Wednesday. Kobe now leads the NBA averaging 30.3 points per game. He is using nearly 40 percent of the Lakers possessions when he…

  25. Curry gets a second opinion on ankle, nothing changes

    Jan 11, 2012, 3:17 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Nicola Vucevic, Lou Williams, Jrue Holiday

    So, it’s a sprain. Stephen Curry has rolled his ankle three times this young season and is out a while to rest it. But since he had surgery on this same ankle, he decided to go back and have the surgeon — Dr. Bob Anderson — take a look at it. Basically he saw what…
