Would you rather have Harrison Barnes or Draymond Green?

Here’s a trade rumor that has no basis in fact.

Love’s people are pushing hard for a deal now. Minnesota, it can wait.

Could Carmelo Anthony command a max contract in 2015? That question is at the heart of how he should proceed.

Would Timberwolves really send No. 13 pick to Golden State as part of deal?
Jun 18, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT
Denver in the mix? Apparently someone likes their offer.
May 20, 2014, 2:58 PM EDT
Warriors would move David Lee, Harrison Barnes, maybe Draymond Green, but hesitant about Klay Thompson in a Love deal.

David West gets high marks for the Pacers. Their coach… not so much.

As Golden State should
Apr 18, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT
With Andrew Bogut the Warriors outplayed the Clippers this season, but Golden State will be without him and that is trouble.

San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

BOSTON – Game-planning for the Golden State last season, the Phoenix Suns wrote “Finesse” on their whiteboard. “Be physical with them, and they tend to back away,” said Jermaine O’Neal, who played for Phoenix last year. Now a Warrior, O’Neal didn’t hesitate to share the observation of their defense with his new teammates. “I told…

Today’s PBT NBA Power Rankings — brought to you by the technology of airplane wi-fi — will talk about the All-Star weekend past and the trade deadline coming up, as there weren’t many other games to speak of. 1. Thunder (43-12, Last Week No. 1). Their addition at the trade deadline is simply getting Russell…

We all know that slow-motion makes everything much more dramatic and generally way cooler. It’s science. That’s a good thing, because last night’s dunk contest was all sort of a weird blur. Harrison Barnes attempted a layup (no, seriously) in the freestyle dunk period. Paul George did some cool stuff we couldn’t properly react to.…

Let’s get this out of the way: that was an awful, awful dunk contest. Despite one of the most star-studded fields in years and some phenomenal athletes, the 2014 dunk contest was a complete dud. Most of the blame probably lies with the new contest format which, at the risk of recycling adjectives, was unforgivably…

NEW ORLEANS – John Wall‘s final dunk of the night won the 2014 Slam Dunk Contest for the team representing the Eastern Conference, but the drastic format changes to the event, and not any of its dunks, are what will be remembered most from this year’s All-Star Saturday showcase. “I think it was cool,” Wall…

All-Star weekend is upon us. While the rest of the PBT crew gets to eat beignets and earn beads for showing a little skin (that’s how that works, right?), some of us will be stuck at home watching the celebrity game and reevaluating our life choices. Not that I’m bitter or anything. Not at all.…

Warriors owner Joe Lacob has made it clear: The organization’s goal for this season was a top four seed in the West and home court in the first round of the playoffs. At 31-21, the Warriors are the six seed currently but are closer to Memphis in the nine seed out of the playoffs (2.5…

It’s been 14 years since the Slam Dunk Contest has featured multiple All-Stars. Heck, in the last two years, no All-Stars have participated. But after years of pleas, the NBA has finally assembled a Dunk Contest field that includes the game’s top talent. Paul George, Damian Lillard and John Wall headline the 2014 event –…

The Rising Stars Challenge kicks off the All-Star weekend festivities that Friday night, and features a mix of the game’s top rookies and sophomores competing in the exhibition. Teams used to be separated by seniority, which often times meant a blowout victory for the second-year players. But the league has since created a draft of…

If all of us — red state, blue state, regardless of religion or skin color — could come together and agree on just two things they would be: 1) Kevin Durant’s new puppy is really cute. 2) The NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest needed some life injected into it. The NBA has heard you on…
Feb 6, 2014, 5:58 PM EDT
We let you know last night that Damian Lillard said he was in for the dunk contest (and maybe much more). He’s not the only star. Multiple reports (including Yahoo, CSNWashington.com and ESPN) have given us what we expect to be the six-man dunk contest field: Paul George (Indiana Pacers) Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)…

The Warriors pretty much did this to the Clippers all night long (ninth game in 14 days for the Clippers and they looked tired). The Clippers were trying to get back in transition and were a step slow, Jordan Crawford drove the lane then passed back to Harrison Barnes and… Boom goes the dynamite. Golden…
