  1. Monday And-1 links: Who is Lakers second scoring option?

    Jan 9, 2012, 11:29 AM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Welcome to our morning 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). Who is the Lakers second scoring option after Kobe? Well, Kobe Bryant says it’s Andrew Bynum. Kwame Brown thinks he deserves some of the credit…

  2. Report: Warriors “aggressive” suitor to rent Dwight Howard

    Jan 5, 2012, 5:42 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Dwight Howard gave the Magic a list of places where he would sign an extension (New Jersey, Dallas, the Los Angeles Lakers). The Magic said they would listen to offers from teams willing to “rent” Howard for this season without the guarantee he would opt in for another year at least (as Chris Paul did)…

  3. Stephen Curry clearly shaken by latest sprained ankle

    Jan 5, 2012, 4:06 PM EST

    nba-lockout-curry

    For those of us watching at home, when Stephen Curry sprained his ankle on Wednesday night it looked like the two other times he did it in the last three weeks. Or all the times he did it last season when the issue lingered. But it didn’t feel that way to Curry. He was far…

  4. Thursdays And-1 links, where Lakers fans are just wrong

    Jan 5, 2012, 10:52 AM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Welcome to our morning 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). In this poll, 56 percent of Lakers fans would rather have Andrew Bynum as their starting center over Dwight Howard. Those fans are fools. I’m…

  5. Stephen Curry rolls right ankle, leaves game. Again.

    Jan 5, 2012, 8:32 AM EST

    Stephen Curry, Nicola Vucevic, Lou Williams, Jrue Holiday

    Off-season surgery to tighten the ligaments. Rest. New shoes. Just about every tape job imaginable. Stephen Curry has tried everything. And yet, he rolled his right ankle again in the third quarter Wednesday night and had to leave the game, reports Matt Steinmentz at CSNBayArea.com. This is the third time in the last three weeks.…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bobcats and Knicks have the same record

    Jan 5, 2012, 4:14 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while watching West Virginia score more first half points than 15 the NBA teams playing last night (seriously)…. Bobcats 118, Knicks 110: Boris Diaw outplayed Amare Stoudemire. Gerald Henderson took it to Landry Fields at every turn. The Charlotte Bobcats outworked a Knicks team that has a lot of talent but looks…

  7. Winderman: Meet the new Kobe, same as the old Kobe

    Jan 4, 2012, 10:37 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Courtney Lee, Kyle Lowry

    At the conclusion of Tuesday’s play, only one NBA player was averaging more than 19 shots per game. That player, in fact, was averaging 22.3, essentially putting him in a league of his own. Which, of course, is where Kobe Bryant long has considered himself. The question now is whether 22.3 is too many, whether…

  8. Reports: Warriors close to signing Nate Robinson

    Jan 3, 2012, 7:21 PM EST

    NBA Finals Game 2:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Because they needed another guard off the bench… wait, no they didn’t, but the Golden State Warriors may be adding one anyway. The Warriors are close to signing Nate Robinson, according to Marcus Thompson of the Contra Costa Times. He said the signing may happen Wednesday and Robinson could be in uniform by the weekend.…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the living upsets

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:55 AM EST

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks during a time out in the closing minutes of his team's loss to the Atlanta Hawks in their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while watching Oregon and Wisconsin score another touchdown…. Hawks 100, Heat 92: Miami was zoned out again. The Hawks went to a zone defense a lot starting in the second quarter and it stalled out the Heat, who shot just 37 percent in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Tracy McGrady alone had 13…

  10. Mark Jackson wants Warriors to “speed up the process”

    Jan 3, 2012, 1:04 AM EST

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    Mark Jackson has a calm, yet demanding presence as head coach of the Golden State Warriors that seems like it could work long-term if the team continues to add pieces and improve from a raw talent standpoint. But as a former player who wants to make a more immediate impact, Jackson’s patience will be tested.…

  11. Kobe shooting woes sign of changes coming to Lakers

    Jan 2, 2012, 5:06 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant looks on against the New York Knicks during second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Kobe Bryant was ice cold last night, shooting 6-of-28. That of course has led to the standard black or white Kobe discussion on the internet — his defenders act as if he can do no wrong, his detractors think he shoots for his ego not because he’s one of the game’s great all time shooters.…

  12. NBA Power Rankings: Blazers climb, Heat on top of mountain

    Jan 2, 2012, 1:35 PM EST

    Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James

    Lots of big moves up and down as the rankings start to shake themselves out a little. In college football they should hold off doing polls through those early weeks because said polls impact the postseason, but as the NBA has a playoff to determine who is best let’s dive in. 1. Heat (5-0, last…

  13. 100 early season observations

    Dec 31, 2011, 10:08 AM EST

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    We lost basketball this year. Precious, sweet basketball. And even though most of the lockout happened in the offseason, those days were still slogs through disappointment and frustration. So to mourn those days and celebrate the first week of professional basketball this season, here are 100 observations on the early season. 1. Lob City’s a…

  14. Monta Ellis out Saturday for Warriors, Curry questionable

    Dec 30, 2011, 5:33 PM EST

    Monta Ellis

    Golden State’s scoring power could be very depleted when Philadelphia comes to town Saturday. Monta Ellis has been given permission to miss the game to attend the funeral of his grandmother who recently passed away in Mississippi, reports Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com. “Bottom line is he’s a family member going through something right now,” (coach…

  15. Jeremy Lin is eager to prove himself as more than a piece of NBA trivia

    Dec 29, 2011, 6:52 PM EST

    large_Lin

    A little known fact about Jeremy Lin, who was recently claimed off waivers by the New York Knicks: he actually has a pretty solid all-around game. He’s a big guard, racks up steals at an incredible rate, and is — at the very least — a solid straight-line driver. A better-known fact about Jeremy Lin:…

  16. Baseline to baseline recaps: Celtics fall, Knicks fall, Heat almost join them

    Dec 29, 2011, 9:39 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    What you missed while worried about what a bad year this was for elephants… Oklahoma City 98, Memphis 95: This playoff rematch was our game of the night. New Orleans 97, Celtics 78: Don’t hit the panic button yet, Celtics fans. Still too early. But if you want to feel uncomfortable and a little ill,…

  17. Report: Kyrylo Fesenko reaches deal with Golden State

    Dec 27, 2011, 6:27 PM EST

    FESENKO_KYRYLO

    Golden State is still looking to add size in the paint, and they may have found some. Ukrainian center Kyrylo Fesenko has reached a one year deal with the Golden State Warriors, reports CSNBayArea.com and Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated. It’s a one-year deal for about $1 million, using up the cap space Golden State…

  18. Stephen Curry tweaked ankle. Again. Will sit out Knicks game.

    Dec 27, 2011, 1:42 PM EST

    stephen curry

    UPDATE 1:42 PM: Stephen Curry is going to sit out the Warriors game against the Knicks Wednesday, his agent told the USA Today. This would be the smart thing to do, he’s rolled the same surgically repaired ankle twice in the past week. The good news out of this is that X-rays showed no serious…

  19. Baseline to baseline recaps: Dallas has some issues

    Dec 27, 2011, 7:48 AM EST

    Chris Andersen, Vince Carter,

    What you missed while out celebrating Boxing Day…. Kings 100, Lakers 91: We covered this one already in our game of the night. Nuggets 115, Mavericks 93: Mavericks forward Sean Williams threw up when subbed out in the fourth quarter of this game, which got a lot of laughs on the Mavs bench but pretty…

  20. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks fall, Heat race into top spot

    Dec 26, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Only one third of the teams in the NBA have played a game, but it was enough to move some teams around and give us a new No. 1. 1. Heat (1-0, last week ranked No. 2). They had 100 possessions in their opening game, nine more than they averaged last season. If they do…

  21. Monday And-1 links (formerly one morning liners)

    Dec 26, 2011, 11:24 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    New name, same drill. This is our morning 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 had experimental work done on his ankle last summer as well as his knee. At this point if you…

  22. Chris Paul is really good, which makes Clippers better than Warriors

    Dec 26, 2011, 6:44 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    For three-plus quarters, the Clippers did not look like the Golden Child, the team anointed to take over Los Angles, lob city, Western Conference contenders. Their half court offensive execution was unimpressive and Chauncey Billups suddenly had the shot selection of a rookie. Then Chris Paul took over the game. In the final 6:07 of…

  23. Previewing NBA’s Christmas Day tip-off

    Dec 23, 2011, 1:19 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose

    Time to unwrap the present of an NBA season — and just like the gifts under the tree there may be some assembly required. Condensed training camps and just two preseason games is going to mean some sloppy openers on Christmas day. But they are games, which are vastly superior to antitrust lawsuits. So let’s…

  24. Stephen Curry sounds optimistic about playing Christmas Day

    Dec 23, 2011, 8:46 AM EST

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    It wasn’t pretty when Stephen Curry sprained his ankle in a preseason game — the same one he had surgery on this summer. He was crawling around on the court on all fours then was carried by teammates back to the locker room. But the damage was not that bad, and it looks like he…

  25. Stephen Curry listed as day-to-day, could play Christmas Day

    Dec 21, 2011, 8:45 PM EST

    nba-lockout-curry

    Stephen Curry’s ankles remain a concern. Just not as big a one in the short term. After an evaluation on Wednesday, Curry’s ankle didn’t show any ligament damage and he is considered day-to-day, reports Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com. No decision has been made on if he will play Christmas night for the Warriors as they…
