    Feb 19, 2014, 2:58 PM EDT

    Pau Gasol

    It was always a long shot anyway, but the idea of the Lakers trading big man Pau Gasol at the deadline — most likely to Phoenix, but there were other talks including with Charlotte — always seemed to have the caveat that other teams wanted to see him healthy and back on the court. Not…

    With just more than 48 hours left until the NBA’s trade deadline, it feels like the biggest deals may be behind us — Rudy Gay and Luol Deng have already been moved. Rumors are swirling, but the feeling around the league is it is all a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. Still there…

    Feb 18, 2014, 7:16 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Golden State Warriors

    Kings fans love Isaiah Thomas and with good reason. We can all relate to the undersized guy picked dead last (60th) in the draft who has sliced his way to an impressive NBA season — 20.2 points and 6.3 assists a night, with a true shooting percentage of 56.8. He’s great at taking angles off…

    NEW ORLEANS – At halftime of what was a record-setting 2014 NBA All-Star game, Kyrie Irving wasn’t on anyone’s radar as far as the game’s MVP award was concerned.

    Carmelo Anthony has been making the rounds during All-Star weekend, and as you’d expect, the focus of the questions are primarily on his pending free agency decision.

  22. Dwight Howard Instagrams photo of himself dunking on Kobe Bryant

    Feb 14, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    If someone ever photographed me dunking on someone – an impossibility, considering my hops have most commonly been compared to Bill Laimbeer’s, and I’m not 6-foot-11 – I’d be tempted to send that picture to the dunk victim every single day. If the dunked-on were my friend, I probably would. If he weren’t a friend,…

    WASHINGTON WIZARDS VS. HOUSTON ROCKETS
