  1. Kris Humphries says he wants to stay in Boston

    Jan 21, 2014, 12:09 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    In a few weeks, close to the trading deadline, Kris Humphries could be playing in another uniform in another city. Humphries is upping his trade value with his play since becoming a starter in Boston, averaging 9.7 points and 9.1 rebounds a game plus doing all the dirty work inside he is known for. Actually,…

  2. Deron Williams returns, chooses to come off the bench in Nets’ blowout win over Knicks

    Jan 20, 2014, 6:58 PM EDT

    deron williams knicks

    NEW YORK – The last time the Nets faced the Knicks, they were without Deron Williams and Paul Pierce due to injury, and a fully healthy New York squad thumped Brooklyn back on Dec. 5 at Barclays by a 30-point margin. A little more than a month later, things have completely changed for both sides. The…

  3. Carmelo Anthony says he has no problem with Kevin Garnett

    Jan 20, 2014, 5:03 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s been about a year since Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett spent a long stretch of a Knicks-Celtics game jawing back and forth. Melo was so upset, he even waited for Garnett outside the Boston bus. But it seems Melo and Garnett are past what will always be remembered – accurately or inaccurately – as…

  4. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

  5. Kevin Garnett: ‘I would do anything for’ Rajon Rondo

    Jan 20, 2014, 11:20 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    It can be a little difficult keeping track of the feuds among the members of the Boston Celtics’ last title team. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce don’t like Ray Allen. Doc Rivers reportedly tried to fight Rajon Rondo. Rondo said he “didn’t feel anything” when Garnett and Pierce were traded. It’s dizzying. But between Garnet…

  6. Kobe includes Rajon Rondo when discussing future Hall of Famers who played for 2010 Celtics

    Jan 18, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant is still a spectator these days, not expecting to return from the fractured bone in his knee until sometime in February. With his Lakers taking on the Celtics in Boston on Friday, memories of better times were brought to the surface, and Bryant was among those sad to see the Paul Pierce and…

  7. Rick Adelman to Minnesota Timberwolves: ‘If you think you’re a playoff team, why don’t you just forget it?’

    Jan 17, 2014, 12:52 PM EDT

    Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic, Rick Adelman

    Before the season, all five of us predicted the Minnesota Timberwolves would make the playoffs (and I didn’t include that link just to point out I was the only one to predict the Trail Blazers would make it, but check that out as long as you’re on the page). The Timberwolves had a star (Kevin…

  8. Rondo returns to Celtics Friday. With a minutes restriction, but he returns.

    Jan 17, 2014, 11:42 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Vs. Boston Celtics At TD Garden

    Rajon Rondo is back. For about five minutes a quarter, but he is back. After missing basically a year with a torn ACL, the Celtics’ All-Star point guard is set to return Friday against the Lakers to the Boston lineup — a lineup that is very different than the one he was last on the…

  9. Andrei Kirilenko draws the double, dishes to Garnett for the finish (VIDEO)

    Jan 17, 2014, 10:13 AM EDT

    Andrei Kirilenko

    The Nets led by as many as 33 points before settling on a 127-110 victory over the Hawks in London on Thursday, and in a game that lopsided, there were more than enough highlights to choose from. We’re going with this high-IQ play from Andrei Kirilenko, who backs down his initial defender in the post,…

  10. Mikhail Prokhorov defends Jason Kidd… and by the way he watches the games

    Jan 16, 2014, 6:51 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Mikhail Prokhorov is paying a lot of money for the Brooklyn Nets — pushing $190 million in salary and luxury tax alone — so you’d expect he’d want to watch his team play. Which is why he was in London, for the Nets win Thursday at the 02 Arena over Atlanta 127-110, behind 29 from…

  11. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  12. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

  13. Nets snap Warriors’ 10-game winning streak (VIDEO)

    Jan 8, 2014, 10:48 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Brooklyn Nets

    The Warriors had a chance to do something no team in NBA history had on Wednesday, and that was end a seven-game road trip with an undefeated record. But the Nets have a little something going these days, and even without Deron Williams were able to get a hard-fought 102-98 victory that brought Golden State’s…

  14. Whether with Celtics or youth and fitness, Brandon Bass is trying to lead by example

    Jan 8, 2014, 2:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    It’s a tough year in Boston. Players are fighting through snow banks to get to a practice facility or games, but once inside it doesn’t feel a lot warmer. They are part of a 13-22 team that has lost eight of nine and as of today wouldn’t even make the playoffs is a sad Eastern…

  15. Kevin Garnett explains Joe Johnson’s nickname: ‘Joe Jesus’

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Kevin Garnett used to play with someone nicknamed Jesus Shuttlesworth, but Garnett has tried to erase Ray Allen from his life. Now, Garnett is playing with a new teammate he calls Jesus: Joe Johnson. “He might not be there when you call on him, but he’s there when you need him,” Garnett said in the…

  16. Nets get $5.25 million disabled player exception approved for injured Brook Lopez

    Jan 8, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s been well-documented that the Nets will have the league’s highest payroll this season when including luxury tax costs, a bill that will total in the neighborhood of $180 million when all is said and done. The league offered Brooklyn a small amount of relief on Tuesday, granting the Nets a disabled payer exception worth…

  17. Keith Bogans frustrated by lack of playing time this season with Celtics

    Jan 2, 2014, 8:21 PM EDT

    Keith Bogan

    Keith Bogans may not be a household name in the NBA, but in recent years he’s become a serviceable veteran that a team could trust on the floor for around 19 minutes per contest. Bogans appeared in 74 games for the Nets a season ago, and started in 23 of them. He was included in…

  18. Kevin Garnett admits his rhythm off in Nets system

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Brooklyn Nets

    Putting players in a position to do what they do well and succeed is one of the biggest jobs as a coach. Look at the best — Gregg Popovich, Phil Jackson — and you find systems designed to get guys to do what they do well and not play to their weaknesses. Conversely, there is…

  19. Report: Kidd frustrated, calls out Nets; Garnett backs him

    Dec 26, 2013, 9:20 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Brooklyn Nets

    Shocking news, the Brooklyn Nets have a dysfunctional locker room. I’m not going to spend a lot of time kicking this dead horse, we’ve done that plenty in these parts, but we have to pass along this report. After the Bulls thumped the Nets on Christmas Day in front of a national television audience, Jason…

  20. Latest NBA All-Star balloting released; LeBron, Durant leading vote getters

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

  21. Deron Williams: Brooklyn Nets’ season ‘a nightmare’

    Dec 26, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    When he traded Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge explained how he got enough assets to make the deal worthwhile to Boston. Ainge, via Mike Petraglia of WEEI: “Brooklyn showed a great deal of interest in putting the ‘Dream Team’ together, with expense…

  22. Jason Kidd, Brooklyn Nets come up empty against Chicago Bulls

    Dec 25, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    Reggie Evans

    The Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls woke up early, left on their sleeved Christmas pajamas and opened the NBA’s Christmas Day slate. Jason Kidd probably wishes he never got out of bed. A game after blasting his team for “kind of getting comfortable with losing,” Kidd oversaw Brooklyn’s 95-78 loss to Chicago on Wednesday, an…

  23. Chicago Bulls-Brooklyn Nets is NBA’s worst Christmas Day matchup since…

    Dec 25, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    The NBA has built a Christmas Day empire by featuring the league’s top teams and players on Dec. 25. It’s become an honor to play this day, and those in the league recognize the accomplishment of getting on the schedule. Fans see it too, annually expecting to see the NBA at its regular-season best. That’s…

  24. Lessons of Celtics 2007 draft taught Suns GM not to tank for picks

    Dec 24, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    While from the outside it looked like the Suns were going bad to get good this season, they never saw it that way. Young new GM Ryan McDonough traded for Eric Bledsoe and believed in the Goran Dragic/Bledsoe backcourt when few did. He was right. More than that he stockpiled picks and also went and…

  25. Jason Kidd says Nets “getting very close to just accepting losing”

    Dec 24, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v. Philadelphia 76ers

    First it was Mike D’Antoni lashing out at Lakers fans, then Sacramento’s Mike Malone smacking his team around, now Jason Kidd doing the same with the Nets. Apparently NBA coaches took the Festivus “Airing of Grievances” part very seriously. Kidd was frustrated after his team played a close first half then just got blown out…
