    Joel Anthony may consider free agency this summer, but no one is going to pay him more than he’d get by simply taking the player option on the final year of his deal.

  8. Four remaining games the Sixers can win

    Mar 28, 2014, 12:35 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

  9. 2014 Rising Stars Challenge rosters set; Anthony Davis taken with first overall pick

    faried rising stars

    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…

  10. PBT Extra: PBT does its own Rising Stars Challenge draft; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…

  11. Michael Carter-Williams, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard all in All-Star Weekend Rising Stars Challenge

    Jan 29, 2014, 5:45 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Sacramento Kings

    While the All-Star Game itself is an exhibition for the biggest names in basketball, a sneaky fun part of All-Star Weekend is always the Rising Stars Challenge — watching the games best young players put on a little show. And there are plenty of good young players to showcase this season. Last season’s Rookie of…

  12. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Injuries start to shape the rankings

    Nov 25, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs

    The top of our rankings remain solid this week, but after a bad weekend of injuries there were a few shakeups farther down with more to come. 1. Spurs (12-1, Last Week No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row and are doing it with great defense, good offense, not much Tim…

  13. Don’t look now but Celtics have won four in a row, lead Atlantic Division

    Nov 12, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    The Boston Celtics have won four in a row, improved to .500 (4-4), and right now that is good enough to lead the Atlantic Division (tied with Philadelphia). After a 0-4 start I didn’t think I’d be writing that sentence. It certainly beats even Celtics’ fans expectations. There are things we can pick apart with…

  14. The Extra Pass: Five observations from the East and Monday’s recaps

    Pacers' Hibbert looks down court during Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    After a busy Monday night in the NBA, let’s swing around the Eastern Conference for a few observations. Indiana: If Roy Hibbert keeps getting that “verticality” respect from officials, it’s goodnight, Irene time for all of the other the Defensive Player of the Year candidates. Look at these numbers: Per 36 minutes on his career: 2.6…

    One week down, 23 more to go. Let’s look at some of the emerging storylines from the first week of the season. A Sneaky MVP Candidate Emerges There’s a real struggle to discern what’s real and what isn’t in the early part of the season, and the standings are almost a totem of sorts. If…

  16. NBA.com GM survey predicts another big season for Heat, LeBron James

    Oct 22, 2013, 11:22 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    The annual NBA.com GM survey is pretty much a spot check on the conventional wisdom around the NBA. It’s not the place you see daring picks or gain deep insight. It’s generally a lot of guys picking the favorite. This year’s survey shows the conventional wisdom is “good luck beating LeBron James the Heat.” In…

  17. Jeff Green blocks D.J. Augustin’s shot as he hurdles him (VIDEO)

    Oct 9, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    More Jeff Green for the Celtics this season is going to mean more of this — he is wildly athletic and it leads to some dynamic plays. Like hurdling Toronto’s D.J. Augustin on the break while blocking his shot during Sunday night’s game. More Jeff Green will also mean more lines like he had in…

  19. Expect to see some Kris Humphries as center in Boston

    Sep 23, 2013, 9:02 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    Kris Humphries isn’t a center but he can play the spot in a pinch — last season in Brooklyn he played 2 percent of the team’s minutes at the five (according to 82games.com). He was about average on offense, a little below average on defense, but he’s not terrible at the spot. The season before…

  20. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Last season: For the first half of the season Boston — with veterans like Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — looked like that team everyone wants to avoid in the first round. Remember, the year before they had taken Miami seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Maybe this version of the Celtics wasn’t going…

  22. Jordan Crawford says Celtics teammates starting to look at him as leader. Okay then.

    Sep 13, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    The Boston Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team now. Well, unless they trade him, but heading into camp this is unquestionably Rondo’s team. However, if he’s not back at the start of the season (we have no timeline) then others may have to step up. There are respected veterans in that locker room such as Brandon…

    The 2013 FIBA Americas Championship tournament will wrap up this week, but the important part was concluded on Sunday when the semifinalists were finalized.

  24. FIBA Americas schedule features Canada vs. Brazil on Sunday

    Sep 1, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Axier Sucre, Diego Bareiro

    The FIBA Americas tournament enters Day 3 on Sunday after a solid first two days of action. Sunday’s games don’t feature the marquee matchups that littered Friday and Saturday, but the first contest of the day should be worth watching. Canada and Brazil are both in the conversation for the Final Four next weekend, a…
