As has been expected since the day he stepped on the Kansas campus, Andrew Wiggins has declared for the NBA Draft. He is in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick.

The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while telling your wife to be you want to spend $3,000 to live tweet your wedding… LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. Aldridge returns to the lineup and the struggling Blazers rattle off three straight wins. It’s not a coincidence. Aldridge finished with 28 points (10-of-20…

That makes 38 games in a row that Kevin Durant has scored at least 25 points — that streak and his consistency this season is the reason he will take home the MVP. He scored 31 Sunday and made it look easy going 9-of-13 from the field against the Utah Jazz as the Thunder cruised…

Blake Griffin left Saturday’s game with back spasms, which isn’t at all a good sign for his team’s postseason chances.

Kevin Durant and Dirk Nowitizki put on a real show Tuesday night, one that couldn’t be contained in regulation. Durant finished with 43 points (on 27 shots) as he was getting to the basket and knocking down threes, generally looking like the best scorer in the game. Nowitzki finished with 32 points (on 23 shots) and…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while breaking down the science of the three point shot… Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks. It wasn’t perfect — he had 6 turnovers and shot 2-of-8 from three. But when they needed him vintage Dirk Nowitzki showed up for Dallas scoring 7 of his team-high 32…

When Kevin Durant is putting on the kind of show that will win him the MVP award, as he was doing Tuesday night, the Thunder are very hard to beat. Dallas did just that though. They did it behind a vintage night from Dirk Nowitzki (well, except he continued to struggle from three going 2-of-8),…

Goran Dragic is playing nearly 35 minutes a night for the Suns and would like to rest this summer, but that means letting down his national team.

The Thunder are playing Russell Westbrook less than ever. They’re even sitting him in some back-to-backs. It’s all designed to maximize his availability for the playoffs. Oklahoma City is a legitimate championship contender. There’s no sense risking Westbrook’s health until it matters most. But given how serious every hit to the knee Westbrook absorbs seems,…

Greg Oden is playing it down, but he will start against the team that drafted him No. 1 all those years ago. It will be emotional.
Mar 24, 2014, 1:41 PM EDT
San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?
Mar 24, 2014, 10:18 AM EDT
I can’t see how these next two years could go wrong for the Lakers.
Mar 23, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT
Kevin Durant had his latest technical foul rescinded, but two more and he’ll receive a one-game suspension.
Mar 21, 2014, 10:44 PM EDT
Kevin Durant turned in yet another performance worthy of MVP consideration.

Anthony Davis said the speed and physicality of the NBA game are the hardest adjustments.

Then he won’t mind this post.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching your bracket go up in flames on the first day… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. Credit the Milwaukee Bucks, they would not roll over, they fought and made Golden State work for it. Stephen Curry was the guy that was not going to…
Mar 21, 2014, 12:30 AM EDT
Kevin Durant got a technical foul for this?
Mar 20, 2014, 4:47 PM EDT
Ugh. Their first tweet war just before the 2007 NBA Draft.
Terrence Ross says Kevin Garnett NBA’s best pick-setter ‘because he sets illegal screens but he never gets caught,’ wants Nets in playoffs
Mar 19, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT
Maybe Garnett will fight him. Ross is a guard.

If only it weren’t for Kevin Durant and LeBron James…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to explain how a python ate your family pet… J.J. Hickson/Kenneth Faried, Denver Nuggets. Let’s be clear — Denver snapped the Los Angeles Clippers 11-game win streak because the Clippers were tired and off. The back-to-back with the second game in Denver trap…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching the King of the Hill/True Detective mashup… Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors. Early in the third quarter Houston took an 18 point lead over Golden State and seemed to be in complete control. Then the shots from Warriors backcourt started to…

The Sixers are currently riding a 20-game losing streak, but for better or for worse, no one inside the Philadelphia organization is deluding themselves as to what’s going on there this season. Call it tanking, or as the NBA’s new commissioner Adam Silver prefers, rebuilding. But either way, there’s going to be a whole lot…
