  1. Three Stars of the Night: Upset Edition

    Nov 3, 2012, 1:47 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Scott Brooks

    So, who had the Bobcats, Magic, Bucks and Knicks all winning tonight? Of course you did. There were lots of upsets around the league, but who are the PBT Three Stars of the Night? Who is hanging out with Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan in the record books? And where in the world is Carmen…

  2. Sessions says he was worried the Lakers would trade him if he re-signed

    Oct 13, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Ramon Sessions

    The Lakers didn’t want Ramon Sessions back as a free agent, at least not for what he was asking. That’s a rough thing to deal with, but they wanted to land a difference maker, they were gearing up for one more run with Kobe and Pau, and Sessions had a rough playoffs. They got Steve…

  3. NBA Preview: Charlotte Bobcats

    Oct 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Last season: Worst. Team. Ever. Literally, no team has ever finished with a worse winning percentage than the 7-59 Bobcats. That had to sting owner Michael Jordan. They were the least efficient team in the league on offense and defense (they both scored the fewest and allowed the most points per possession in the league).…

  4. How Jordan is stepping out of Bobcats basketball decisions

    Sep 10, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    The Bobcats started out a mess under Michael Jordan, which was a problem because he took over a mess from the owner before him. And on the court last season, things did not look a lot better as they went 7-59. But it was a mess for very Jordan reasons. And there should be legitimate…

  5. Friday And-1 links: What is Allen Iverson’s legacy?

    Allen Iverson

    Here is our regular 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 more than Republicans love bashing Obama… well, maybe not that much. • Just how…

  7. Josh Selby shows he’s closer to reaching potential at NBA Summer League

    Jul 18, 2012, 12:34 AM EDT

    josh selby

    LAS VEGAS — Josh Selby earned a vote for the NBA’s All-Rookie Third Team this past that many in the media felt wasn’t deserved. While that may have been the case, there’s a good chance he cemented himself a spot on the All-Summer League roster following Monday evening’s performance at the Cox Pavilion in lovely…

  8. NBA Summer League: Where Chris Copeland comes to shine

    Jul 16, 2012, 12:51 AM EDT

    chris copeland

    The NBA Summer League season continued on Sunday with seven more games of players looking to reach the next level by way of a couple solid exhibition games in lovely Las Vegas. It doesn’t seem like anyone is a can’t miss signee quite yet, but the odds began to favor a few players that have…

  9. Bobcats cut Augustin loose, Pacers sign him to deal

    Jul 12, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Darko Milicic

    So Indiana just traded Darren Collison then paid $1 million a year more to have D.J. Augustin backup George Hill? Interesting decision. But that’s what the Pacers have done (and got backup center Ian Mahinmi in the process). Here’s how it went down. On Wednesday the Pacers traded Collison to Dallas for Mahinmi. On Thursday,…

  10. Bobcats reach deal with point guard Ramon Sessions

    Jul 12, 2012, 2:16 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    The lowly Bobcats just got better. The Bobcats have come to terms on a deal for point guard Ramon Sessions, according to Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports and the Charlotte Observer. This is a good move, it gives the Bobcats a more known, steady entity to pair with Kemba Walker at the point. Sessions is…

  11. Report: Brian Shaw prefers Orlando, Snyder could get Bobcats

    Jun 15, 2012, 1:16 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson, Brian Shaw

    With Jerry Sloan pulling himself out of the running for the Bobcats head coaching job — for whatever reason — it left just Brian Shaw and Quin Snyder walking around the one chair and waiting for the music to stop. But Shaw could be eyeing a chair across the room — the Magic are reportedly…

  12. The New Orleans Hornets and a matter of serendipity, not conspiracy

    Jun 2, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Dell Demps

    Maybe they’re right. Maybe the league, in the face of unfathomable depths of reason to avoid the concept like the plague (which I have outlined here), really did rig the 2012 NBA Lottery in order to help the Hornets after a rough year, or dot the i’s on the sale of the team to Tom…

  13. Point guards Irving, Rubio lead NBA All-Rookie team

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…

  14. Paul Silas out as Bobcats coach. Is that really a surprise?

    Apr 30, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Paul Silas

    After leading a Bobcats team to the worst winning percentage in NBA history, the Charlotte Bobcats announced they are not bringing back coach Paul Silas, team president Rod Higgens said. Yes, real shocker there. Charlotte went 7-59 under Silas last season, and while he certainly deserves some blame the fact is that  owner Michael Jordan…

  15. Bobcats lose 23rd straight, fall to Knicks to set record for futility

    Apr 26, 2012, 11:43 PM EDT

    Knicks Bobcats Basketball

    The Charlotte Bobcats are the worst team in NBA history. Charlotte fell to the Knicks by 20 points, 104-84, on a night when the Knicks basically gave their best players a night off. On a night the Bobcats should have played with desperation, they were passive and just missed good looks. It was their 23rd…

  16. Coach of ’72-73 Sixers says Bobcats have less talent

    Apr 24, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Derrick Brown, Gerald Henderson, Kemba Walker

    Until this year, the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers were the model of futility — 9-73. A .110 winning percentage. A team led by Fred Carter and John Block (when Block was healthy) that had a lot of role-playing veterans on the downside of their career. But if Charlotte loses its final two games — at Orlando…

  17. The Nine Circles of Bobcats Hell

    Mar 31, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    hellrufus

    The Bobcats are in Hell. Not literally. They’re still alive. They still get paid. They’re operational. They’re not tortured with fire. Other than that, though, yeah, pretty hell like. The team is on pace for historic levels of failure. It is literally just about as bad as it can get. There is nearly no reason…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Fear Kevin Love

  19. Charles Barkley says Kentucky could beat Toronto, Charlotte

    Mar 26, 2012, 1:02 PM EDT

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    This happens every year right before the Final Four. Some loudmouth says that the best college team in the land could beat the worst NBA team. This year’s loudmouth is Charles Barkley. Guess we shouldn’t be shocked by that. Here is what he said, via our sister (brother?) blog CollgeBasketballTalk, which you should be reading…

  20. March Madness NBA prospects to watch: South Regional

    Mar 14, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    The NCAA Tournament is prime NBA draft scouting time (and it normally doesn’t fall right on the trade deadline — thanks again, NBA lockout). It’s a chance to see guys against good competition and under pressure. For NBA fans looking at the standings and realizing they could be drafting high, the South Regional is the…

  21. Reports: Portland shopping Crawford to Clippers, Bobcats

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    Jamal Crawford and his up-tempo, shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later style has not meshed with the grind it out ways of Nate McMillan in Portland. It hasn’t been fun for him. What could possibly be worse. Charlotte. On the other hand, he could land with everyone’s new favorite team the Clippers. There are a few different reports out there.…

  22. Jeremy Lin added to Rising Stars All-Star Weekend game

    Feb 16, 2012, 8:29 PM EDT

    Knicks guard Lin smiles during player introductions before the start of the Knicks' NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Minneapolis

    How about Jeremy Lin throwing ally-oops to Blake Griffin? You got it. Thanks to a late add by the NBA and some drafting prowess by Shaquille O’Neal, Lin and Griffin will be playing together the Friday night of All-Star weekend at the Rising Stars Challenge (formerly the Rookie/Sophomore Game). Lin was not on the original…

Execute. For example, don’t turn the ball over — the Clippers has seven fourth quarter turnovers.…

    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). Patriot tight end Rob Gronkowski and a number of his teammates were at the Lakers/Celtics game Thursday. Kobe Bryant told Gronkowski to go play for…

  25. Griffin, Irving headline pool of players for Rising Stars game

    Feb 8, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Rookie John Wall, of the Washington Wiza

    The NBA is trying to change the fortunes of what used to be the overlooked and uninteresting All-Star weekend Rookie Challenge (where the rookies played the sophomores). This year TNT’s Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal are picking teams playground style (Team Shaq and Team Chuck) from a pool of rookies and sophomores — and the…
