  1. Winderman: The “Take my Turkoglu, please” trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 7:30 PM EST

    Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu

    The shame of the NBA trading deadline is that it does not follow the post-Christmas “Boxing Day” tradition of Canada and other countries, where you spend the day after sorting out the junk from the actual gifts. In the NBA, it remains an all-in-one process, which is why, in this space over the past few…

  2. Do you need a closer to win in NBA? George Karl says no.

    Mar 8, 2012, 7:21 PM EST

    Derrick Rose

    It looks great when Derrick Rose makes the sweet crossover and drains the jumper to win the game. Hero ball makes heroes when it works. But the league’s best “closers” miss more of those shots than they make. As we start to get more and more information that look at situations and players we learn…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the living game-winning shot

    Mar 8, 2012, 9:24 AM EST

    Trevor Booker

    What you missed while realizing you figured out who is going to win the Darwin Award this year…. Sixers 103, Celtics 71: This battle for the top spot in the Atlantic division — and the four seed at least in the playoffs, allowing a team to avoid Miami and Chicago in the first round —…

  4. Video: Jordan Farmar with game-winning three to beat Clippers

    Mar 8, 2012, 12:54 AM EST

    Kris Humphries, Jordan Farmar

    In looking at Derrick Rose‘s game winner for the Bulls Wednesday, I questioned the wisdom of Milwaukee not doubling him and making any other Bull beat you. The Clippers did that — they started to gravitate toward Deron Williams and if he had gone to shoot two or three defenders would have been there to…

  5. Monday And-1 links: Anthony Morrow to honor Drazen Petrovic

    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). Anthony Morrow is going to wear a Drazen Petrovic Nets throwback jersey during the All-Star Three Point Contest next weekend in Orlando. Petrovic was a…

  6. Nets, Grizzlies continuing pursuit of Mayo trade

    Jan 15, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    O. J. Mayo

    O.J. Mayo is moving past last season’s disaster which featured a fist fight on a plane with a teammate, a suspension for PEDs, and the first benching of his since he started playing basketball at the competitive level. He’s played well on and off ball, has been more coachable and has rediscovered his scoring knack.…

  7. Thursday And-1 links: “Kobe really wants that MVP”

    Gerald Wallace, Kobe Bryant

    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). After the Clippers win over the Heat, in the Clippers locker room a player (to remain nameless as this was not an on the record…

    What you missed while you tried to shame your kid into behaving…. Clippers 95, Heat 89: The game where the rims were afraid was our game of the night. Lakers 90, Jazz 87 (OT): The Lakers might not have gotten to the overtime without Kobe Bryant dropping 40 points — but when Kobe went cold…

    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). Happy birthday LeBron, you’re bald. Michael Beasley’s finger injury Sunday seemed pretty bad — especially the part on television where you could see him say…

  10. Did Jay-Z approve this? Nets to sign DeShawn Stevenson.

    Dec 22, 2011, 9:44 AM EST

    DeShawn Stevenson

    DeShawn Stevenson was once dissed in a Jay-Z song because of the players running feud with LeBron James (something that flared up again during the NBA finals last year when Stevenson was with the Mavericks). Soon, Stevenson will play for Jay-Z and his Nets. Stevenson has reached a contract deal with the New Jersey Nets,…

  11. Report: Casspi signs to play with Maccabi Tel Aviv

    Nov 15, 2011, 8:07 AM EST

    Omri Casspi

    There are going to be a lot of NBA players looking to go overseas and a lot of players are going to be surprised that there are not a lot of spots. But a few guys are going to get spots. And Cavs forward Omri Casspi (remember the Kings traded him on draft night) is…

  12. Video: Jordan Farmar talks playing in Israel

    Nov 9, 2011, 8:09 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets' Farmar reacts to missed shot at buzzer as Dallas Mavericks win their NBA basketball game in Newark

    The World from Public Radio International sat down (well, actually stood up) and talked to Jordan Farmar about playing in Israel, where he is during the NBA lockout. Farmar is a Los Angeles boy, born and raised, who went on to win a couple of rings with the Lakers before going to the Nets. Moving…

  13. Apparently Humphries/Kardashian marriage is not perfect. Shocking.

    Oct 27, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Kardashian Kollection Launch Party

    They really need to end the lockout. Soon. So we can talk about basketball. In that absence we bring you this bit of shocking news — things may not be “happily ever after” for free agent forward Kris Humphries and reality star Kim Kardashian. First came reports that former Nets forward Humphries is weary of…

    New Jersey Nets' Farmar reacts to missed shot at buzzer as Dallas Mavericks win their NBA basketball game in Newark

    Jordan Farmar — one of the handful of Jewish players in the NBA — will play during the lockout for Maccabi Tel Aviv, essentially the Yankees of the Israeli league and a European powerhouse. And they are pretty excited to have him there — this is video of his arrival at the airport. (hat tip…

  15. Europe’s best teams still hesitant to sign NBA stars

    Aug 9, 2011, 3:07 PM EST

    Deron-Williams

    We keep hearing rumors that there is going to be a flood of NBA players signing overseas soon — including some All-Star level players. If it happens — and that’s a big if — they still will not be signing with the best teams in Europe. They will be signing with the also-rans of the…

  16. Farmar, Ilyasova, Wright three latest to sign in Europe

    Aug 3, 2011, 2:46 PM EST

    Jordan Farmar

    David Stern is so, so concerned about how players signing overseas might impact the players union. He is such an empathetic guy. Don’t think there’s anything self-centered about his comments at all. Nope. He’s not saying that hoping to divide the union. It’s only out of genuine, heart-felt concern. But outside of D-Will, only one…

  17. Jordan Farmar in talks to play in Israel for Maccabi Haifa

    Aug 2, 2011, 1:08 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    Looks like the Nets may have both of their point guards playing overseas during the lockout. Deron Williams will be playing in Istanbul, and now his backup Jordan Farmar is in serious talks to play for Maccabi Haifa in Israel, reports Mark Stein at ESPN. Farmar has one more year left on his deal with…

  18. Sundiata Gaines to miss rest of season with fractured hip

    Mar 25, 2011, 3:05 PM EST

    Sundiata Gaines Nets

    Just last week, the Nets signed Sundiata Gaines through the remainder of this season and into the next one (whenever that is). Now Gaines is out for the rest of the season with a fractured hip, the team reported on twitter. Gaines will be on crutches for six-to-eight weeks and then begin rehab. Gaines jammed…

  19. Even in the NBA right place, right time gets you a job

    Mar 23, 2011, 2:59 PM EST

    Sundiata Gaines, Stephen Curry

    We live in a fantasy world where we like to believe that making it to the NBA is a meritocracy — only the very best get there because of skill and effort, not luck. But why should the NBA be any different than where you work? You’re telling me the hierarchy at your office is…

  20. Deron Williams to miss next two games for birth of child

    Mar 8, 2011, 2:04 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets' Deron Williams (C) drib

    It’s one of those little things we tend not to think about when breaking down trades — Deron Williams life was uprooted and he was shipped across the country while his wife was 8 months pregnant. If you’ve ever had a pregnant wife, you can imagine with me just how well this news might have…

  21. London Calling: Nets land in England for weekend games

    Mar 1, 2011, 8:19 PM EST

    Image (1) london-thumb-250x163-17376.jpg for post 6260

    The Nets have landed in London and they have a few days to get used to doing things in England before they play. Like what side of the bus to get on (watch the video, that makes more sense then). The Nets and Raptors play a back-to-back at the O2 Arena in London Friday and…

  22. The Nets have a cornerstone, now the building starts

    Feb 25, 2011, 3:58 PM EST

    Deron Williams presser

    There is — for the first time in recent memory — a palpable buzz about a New Jersey Nets game Friday. That’s what bringing in a superstar can do. And the Nets got a superstar in Deron Williams. Knicks fans flip out at the idea, but the Nets got the better player, they bested the…

  23. Report: Devin Harris likely headed to Dallas

    Feb 23, 2011, 10:09 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Boston Celtics

    Devin Harris became enough of a star in Dallas that the Nets thought they were getting something of real value in the Jason Kidd deal a few years back. Now, looks like New Jersey has seen enough Harris and he is headed back tot Big D. Harris is going to get moved and Dallas is…

  24. The Lakers don’t just look slow, they are slow

    Jan 4, 2011, 4:27 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    There was going to come a day when the Lakers missed Jordan Farmar, and that day has arrived. I’m serious. Hear me out. In all the talk of what is wrong with the Lakers (2-4 in their last six and the SKY IS FALLING!) has been some discussion of “are the Lakers athletic enough?” The…

  25. Nets Devin Harris only has knee strain, will miss several games

    Dec 1, 2010, 1:22 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Boston Celtics

    If you watched what happened to the Nets offense when Devin Harris went out in the third quarter against the Nets last night, you know how badly they need him in the offense. So you know why there were sighs of relief when an MRI showed just a knee strain, the team announced Wednesday. Harris…
