    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat - Game One

    Kemba Walker made James Jones look bad.

  2. Charlotte is scrappy but Heat have too much in comfortable 99-88 win

    Apr 20, 2014, 6:58 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh

    Bobcats were scrappy, but with Al Jefferson hurting Miami just had too much LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

  3. Paul Pierce’s move to power forward adds twist to his career, Brooklyn Nets’ season

    Mar 8, 2014, 6:00 PM EDT

    Amir Johnson; Mirza Teletovic; Alan Anderson

    BOSTON – On Paul Pierce’s first defensive possession as the Brooklyn Nets’ full-time starting power forward, Serge Ibaka backed him down on the block. Pierce bodied Ibaka, keeping him out of the paint, and Ibaka threw the ball away. On the Oklahoma City Thunder’s next possession, Ibaka posted up Pierce again. Pierce hardly yielded an…

  4. Josh McRoberts with an incredible behind-the-back pass to set up Chris Douglas-Roberts for three (VIDEO)

    Mar 8, 2014, 12:02 AM EDT

    Josh McRoberts

    This pass was incredible in two distinct ways. First, the ability shown by Josh McRoberts to recognize that his teammate was wide open behind the three-point line from his position in the paint was fantastic. But the pass? It wasn’t just daring to attempt, but the physical level of skill required to get it there…

  5. Pablo Prigioni could start, Knicks may go “small” against Nets

    Jan 20, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    This is a move that will be met with applause — if not shouts of “finally” — by Knicks fans. With the return of Pablo Prigioni Monday, Knicks coach Mike Woodson may start him and go small with his lineup. That according to the New York Post (hat tip Eye On Basketball). Prigioni will make…

  6. The Extra Pass: Busting myths surrounding Blake Griffin, and Thursday’s recaps

    Nov 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    In his first season playing in the league, Blake Griffin crushed any and all expectations. Now, just a few years later, he can’t seem to get out from under the weight of them. Without diving in too deep as to why that is, it’s probably fair to say that Griffin isn’t treated as even-handedly as…

  7. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Orlando Magic

    Tobias Harris

    Last season: It was a season of transition. The Magic started out near .500 (12-13) but when Glen Davis got injured things fell apart. The Magic won 8 games the rest of the year and by the trade deadline they had fully embraced the rebuild, meaning J.J. Redick was the first out the door in…

  8. James Southerland gets a training camp invite from the Bobcats

    Aug 24, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Syracuse forward Southerland dunks against Michigan in the second half of their NCAA men's Final Four basketball game in Atlanta

    James Southerland is a 6’8″ forward who averaged 13.3 points per game in his senior year at Syracuse, while knocking down almost 40 percent of his shots from three-point distance. Southerland went undrafted, though he had an offer from the Spurs to take him late in the second round if he agreed to spend this…

  9. Report: Josh McRoberts reaches deal to re-sign with Bobcats

    Jul 5, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    Josh McRoberts

    Midseason Josh McRoberts was traded from Orlando to Charlotte for Hakim Warrick as two of the worst teams in the league rearranged the deck chairs on the Titanic. But McRoberts liked what he got in Charlotte — a starting role and nearly double the minutes. It showed on the court as he averaged what would…

  11. Winners and Losers from the Trade Deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

  12. Hakim Warrick to Orlando headlines small trades at deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 5:28 PM EDT

    Hakim Warrick, Jason Thompson

    We didn’t get any blockbuster trades at this year’s NBA trading deadline. We saw Rudy Gay moved a few weeks before and J.J. Redick did get moved just before the deadline. But a lot of what happened at the deadline was smaller deals that slid under the radar. Here is a quick wrap-up of those…

  14. LeBron takes ‘walking the dog’ to an entirely new level (VIDEO)

    Jan 1, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    With under two minutes remaining in overtime of Miami’s game against the Magic on Monday, the Heat were trailing, and wanted to preserve every precious second on the clock to ensure enough possessions were available for the team to come back and get this victory. They got it down the stretch, but time ended up…

  15. Magic’s Glen Davis could be out a while with shoulder injury

    Dec 20, 2012, 9:01 AM EDT

    Glen Davis

    The play itself doesn’t look like much — Glen Davis is going hard to the rim and Emeka Okafor fouls him, getting him across the arms as Davis tries to go up with the ball. But Big Baby is almost instantly on the floor grabbing his shoulder in a lot of pain. Those kind of…

  16. Orlando center Gustavo Ayon to miss at least two weeks

    Oct 24, 2012, 4:45 PM EDT

    Amir Johnson,  Gustavo Ayon

    The losses just keep piling up for the Magic, and the season hasn’t even started yet. It was bad enough having to fire Stan Van Gundy, who is undoubtedly one of the game’s best strategic minds, because of some overblown drama caused by a petulant star. It was even worse having to trade Dwight Howard…

    Lakers new guard Steve Nash of Canada smiles as he walks past Kobe Bryant during NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

    Last Season: Failure. For a team that measures success in terms of championships, especially when it has enough talent on paper to compete at that level, 2012 just wasn’t good enough. The Lakers struggled with depth and exited the playoffs in the second round for the second straight year, this time to a younger, more…

  18. Orlando is far from done trading, plenty of guys available

    Sep 1, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Two

    Dwight Howard is gone, but that is just knocking down one wall in the major rebuilding project that is going on in Orlando. GM Rob Hennigan is rebuilding the entire house and there is a lot more work to do. That means he is not done trading. Pretty much everyone on the roster is available.…

  19. What was in Rockets offer for Dwight Howard depends on whom you ask

    Aug 15, 2012, 10:13 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Rob Hennigan, the Orlando Magic’s new on the job general manager, and the entire Magic organization is taking a lot of incoming fire — that’s all you got for Dwight Howard? What they got in a four-team deal that landed Howard with the Lakers was a quality wing in Arron Afflalo, veteran forwards Al Harrington…

  20. It’s official: League approves four-team deal, Howard a Laker

    Aug 10, 2012, 1:42 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Some Lakers fans were convinced David Stern was going to try to kill this blockbuster, balance changing trade. And you could bet if he really could have some owners (*cough*Mark Cuban*cough*) would have pressured him to do so. But the league had no real standing to block this trade — because it can be justified…

  21. Did the Lakers just become the NBA’s best team? Looks like it.

    Aug 10, 2012, 12:57 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Four years ago at the trade deadline, the Los Angeles Lakers made what was considered a blockbuster move — they traded a package centered around Marc Gasol (although at the time we thought it was Kwame Brown) for Pau Gasol. Pairing him with Kobe Bryant led the Lakers to three straight finals and two NBA…

    Russell Westbrook, Matt Barnes

    The playoff race is heating up and with the Lakers battling for the division and the third seed and the Thunder haggling with the Spurs over the top seed in the West, Sunday’s game is the rare late season meeting with meaning. The Lakers need to get a win to lock in no-worse than fifth…

  24. Mike Brown taking Andrew Bynum’s latest ejection in stride

    Apr 7, 2012, 9:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers coach Brown celebrates with Bynum during their NBA game against Boston Celtics in Los Angeles

    Andrew Bynum was ejected early in the fourth quarter of the Lakers loss to the Rockets on Friday, and by all accounts, it was a situation that should have been completely avoided. Bynum already had picked up one technical foul, and after scoring on a strong post move inside, he turned to the Houston bench…

  25. Bynum leaves Lakers game with “moderate” ankle sprain

    Apr 1, 2012, 11:45 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum, Gary Vitti

    Well, at least now Andrew Bynum has a good excuse for not being Mike Brown’s huddle… Bynum sprained his ankle late in the first quarter of the Lakers game Monday against the Warriors when he landed on teammate Josh McRoberts’ foot. Bynum left the game and went back to the locker room soon after it…
