    If we have learned one thing from videos this summer, it is that youth under age 15 or so cannot guard an NBA player.

  5. Report: Raptors trade Steve Novak to Utah Jazz

    Jazz get a shooter, the Raptors get cap space.

  6. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Heat and a lot from out West at the top

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:03 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    The Eastern Conference has two elite teams — Indiana and Miami — and they are on top of the PBT Power Rankings for this week. Then you don’t see another team from the East until No. 12, which speaks to the depth of the West and the drop off after the East elite.   1.…

  7. Harrison Barnes hopes to participate in this year’s dunk contest

    Sep 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    Harrison Barnes

    Harrison Barnes had more than his fair share of amazing slam dunk highlights during his rookie season with the Warriors — just check out the clip above, or this collection of the team’s best plays from last year for visual confirmation. It’s rare that we get the best in-game dunkers wanting to participate in All-Star…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Knicks take night off (except they had a game)

    Carmelo Anthony

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were hacking Donkey Kong to make Pauline the hero… Spurs 105, Thunder 93: The Spurs depth was too much for the Thunder — San Antonio made its big runs when it was bench-on-bench (mostly). Part of that was that the Thunder…

  9. Players explain dunks they had ready in case they advanced to the final round of the Dunk Contest

    Feb 17, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Gerald Green

    HOUSTON — Only two contestants out of the field of six advanced to the final round of the Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday, and Terrence Ross and Jeremy Evans were the ones who earned their way there to get a shot at this year’s title. That means we had other capable dunkers who had to…

  10. Three best dunks of All-Star Dunk Contest

    Feb 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    This isn’t a dunk contest that is going to go down in history with the greats. Well, unless you’re a Raptors fan. It was up and down, plenty of misfires and missed dunks no doubt. But there were some jaw dropping moments, too. Terrence Ross won because he had a few of them. Then there…

  11. Jeremy Evans dunks over covered picture, reveals it to be painting of him performing the dunk (VIDEO)

    HOUSTON — Jeremy Evans didn’t win this year’s dunk contest, but it certainly wasn’t due to a lack of creativity or effort on his part. Terrence Ross took home the trophy as the 2013 Sprite Slam Dunk champion, and was definitely deserving of the honor. But Evans wins at least in terms of creativity, based…

  12. Raptors’ Ross wins dunk contest with Toronto tributes

    Feb 17, 2013, 12:03 AM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Terrence Ross pulled out the Vince Carter Raptors throwback jersey, then did a throwback Vince Carter dunk. Then he did a not-very-far throwback dunk of Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan. Then he dunked over a kid. All the while Toronto’s own Drake was jumping around in the first row like a giddy 12-year-old boy. It all worked.…

  13. Ty Lawson with crossover and dish, Faried with finish (VIDEO)

    Feb 8, 2013, 8:40 AM EST

    Ty Lawson

    It looked like this all night — Denver playing with energy and finishing possessions with dunks, Chicago standing around and watching those dunks. Denver routed Chicago Thursday night and had a lot of fun doing it. And they put on quite a show in the process. Here Ty Lawson shows off an impressive crossover, then…

  14. 2013 Slam Dunk Contest: Jeremy Evans will defend title against Green, Bledsoe, Ross, Faried, and James White

    Feb 7, 2013, 7:14 PM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Utah’s Jeremy Evans — the human pogo stick — will be back to defend his All-Star weekend Sprite Dunk Contest title. But a repeat will not be easy because the NBA has lined up some high flyers to step up to challenge him — Gerald Green of the Pacers, James White of the Knicks, Eric…

  15. Top 10 NBA dunks of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    WIth 2012 officially in the books, it’s time to look back on the top 10 dunks of the past year. And just as we all expected, Byron Mullens makes the list and kicks things off at number 10. Yeah, I don’t know either. But his flying jam down the lane after getting his own rebound…

  16. LeBron says he will never do All-Star Dunk Contest

    Dec 24, 2012, 9:41 AM EST

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is a powerful in-game dunker. Sometimes those kinds of dunkers don’t translate well to the showy exhibition that is the NBA’s Dunk Contest All-Star weekend. Think Shannon Brown. Heck, Jazz forward Jeremy Evans told Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida he could beat LeBron in the contest because we’ve never seen LeBron in…

  17. How to win the preseason

    Oct 20, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    Marvin Wiliams, Al Jefferson, Paul Milsap

    No one has ever accused the Utah Jazz of being too trendy. Just like John Stockton defiantly ignored the whole “wearing shorts that allow circulation to the rest of your leg” thing late in his career, Utah has completely avoided the recent trend of slimming down and going small. The Jazz will start four players…

  18. Video: Another day, another CP3 to Griffin ally-oop dunk

    Oct 18, 2012, 10:53 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul celebrates with Griffin after Griffin scored against the Memphis Grizzlies during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    What does it say about us as fans that this kind of play between two of the league’s superstars is so routine as to make us think “that was nice, but they’ve done much better?” Anyway, here is Chris Paul‘s ally-opp to Blake Griffin in transition from Wednesday night against the Jazz. Monster jam. Yawn.…

  19. Video: Jeremy Evans with the block on one end, dunk on other

    Oct 18, 2012, 1:33 AM EST

    Matt Barnes, Jeremy Evans

    If you’re looking for the “play of the preseason” I think this may be your winner. The human pogo stick Jeremy Evans is freakishly long and can jump out of the building, which makes him good at blocking shots and dunking. (It’s the other stuff that holds him back.) Here he gets Ronny Turiaf twice,…

  20. Report: Jazz still interested in bringing Josh Howard back

    Sep 18, 2012, 11:51 AM EST

    Jazz forward Howard tries to get position on Spurs forward Leonard during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    The Utah Jazz have a lot of youth on the wing, but they still want to add one veteran to the mix to balance it out. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the Jazz have interest in bringing back Josh Howard for another season (even though he is looking around and worked out for the…

  21. Welcome to NBA signing day tracker: Griffin, Nash, more ink deals

    Jul 11, 2012, 9:05 PM EST

    Blake Griffin arrives for a news conference announcing the players selected for the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Las Vegas

    It’s official, Steve Nash is a Los Angeles Laker. And Blake Griffin is a very rich Clipper. All the deals that have been reported in the past 10 days — such as Deron Williams re-signing with the Nets — go from “agreement reached” to “pen on paper” today. The league has a 10-day moratorium on…

  22. Jeremy Evans agrees to terms to remain with Jazz

    Jul 6, 2012, 10:06 AM EST

    Jeremy Evans

    He’s won the NBA Dunk Contest. He’s called the “human pogo stick.” He’s got plenty of NBA highlights but his game is not at the point he’s racking up a lot of NBA minutes. Now Jeremy Evans is going to get three more years to prove he can be a part of an NBA rotation.…

  23. Orlando is in trouble now because it’s not good at drafting

    May 14, 2012, 6:38 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    More and more research is showing, if you want to build a sustainable winner in the NBA you need to do it on draft day. Look at the teams still playing. Miami had to draft Dwyane Wade, which made it possible to bring in Shaq to get them one title (and LeBron James doesn’t come…

  24. Thursday morning one liners: Grant Hill could return Friday

    Apr 12, 2012, 11:28 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Look for Grant Hill to return to the Suns Friday. They really could…
