Kevin Martin

  1. Thunder have some adjustments to make with Kevin Martin

    Oct 30, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Martin, De Andre Liggins

    For years, Kevin Martin was a player I hoped would land on a bigger stage. He was maybe the most efficient scorer in the NBA, a guy who could shoot the three, had a deceptively good handle and knew how to get to the line. He scored more than 20 points a game for five…

  2. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  3. Four teams that could head off a Lakers vs. Heat NBA final

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    It’s the consensus of prognosticators (and me as well) — the NBA finals will be the Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James. You can already sense David Stern drooling like a Pavlovian dog thinking about the television ratings. What teams could destroy David Stern’s dream? There are four. While we…

  4. Harden reportedly “devastated” by trade. I can think of 25 million reasons he’ll get over it.

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:51 PM EDT

    James Harden

    James Harden didn’t want to be traded from the Thunder. He said as much. He was having fun on a contending team that he had kind of grown up in the NBA on. But business is business. Harden earned his right to get paid — the Thunder reportedly offered four years, $52 million (an offer…

  5. Wade “shocked” by Harden trade, still thinks Thunder are best in West

    Oct 29, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat Wade jumps to the basket on top of Oklahoma City Thunder Harden during Game 3 of the NBA basketball finals in Miami

    Everyone was shocked. I mean, a few people had suggested that maybe James Harden could be traded after the season or maybe closer to the deadline in February, but not before the season. Yet it happened. Dwyane Wade was shocked like everyone else. But he doesn’t think the Thunder took much of a step backwards.…

  6. Oklahoma City’s big mistake was Perkins trade, extension

    Oct 28, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins, James Harden

    We all have at least a little bit of stubbornness in us. Not asking for directions? A common mistake rooted in pride. Going down a random, unmarked dirt road for five miles after not asking for directions? A little more foolish. Ending up out of gas in the middle of a field hoping the hills…

  7. Thunder weaken title chances to save almighty dollar

    Oct 28, 2012, 1:45 AM EDT

    James Harden

    Mark Cuban once said that there are two kinds of NBA owners: Those that want to win and those that want to make money. We know where the Thunder owners fall. Oklahoma City traded their Sixth Man of the Year and best playmaker James Harden — the guy with the sweet beard who often had…

  8. Thunder trade James Harden to the Rockets

    Oct 27, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    Mavericks Thunder Basketball

    Well, this was unexpected. After contract talks broke down, with the Thunder failing to come through with a max contract extension offer for last season’s Sixth Man of the Year in James Harden, Oklahoma City’s GM Sam Presti decided to pull the plug altogether, and has traded Harden to the Houston Rockets. Adrian Wojnarowski of…

  9. NBA Season Preview: Houston Rockets

    Oct 25, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Kevin McHale, Jeremy Lin

    Last Season: Riding a deep roster and the creativity of a coaching staff and front office to cover up their weaknesses with in-season trades, the Rockets were in the playoff hunt into the season’s final days only to fall short and finish 9th in the West. They battled injury, illness, and the transition to new…

  10. Five players that need a change of scenery

    Oct 23, 2012, 9:41 PM EDT

    Kevin Martin

    Breakups are never fun, but sometimes it just has to be done. Maybe there’s someone new, or things have become stale, or both parties just need to go a different direction. The following is a list of five talented players who could really use the “it’s not you, it’s me” speech from their current teams.…

  11. Kevin McHale talks fitting together Rockets’ pieces

    Sep 4, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v New Orleans Hornets

    The Rockets are not the most talented team in the NBA this season, which was kind of the plan. Well, the first plan was to get Dwight Howard, but when that fell apart the plan was to be pretty bad and get a high draft pick next year and rebuild that way. That’s not fun…

  12. A quick look at your top free agents for 2013 (as of now)

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:50 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    After a summer of rebuilding and trying to put a team together, there are a few teams out there that are clearly looking at next summer as the chance to remake their lineup. Yes, we’re looking at you, Dallas. But you are not alone. So, who are next summer’s big potential free agents? Here is…

  13. The Inbounds: How the West will almost-but-not-actually be won

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:52 PM EDT

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    Parity has become something of a naughty word around intelligent conversation about the NBA. Because parity is another word for “competitive balance” and that was the word the owners and league used to justify killing off 20 percent of the season last year. (When in truth the hard cap wouldn’t help a damn bit with…

  14. The Inbounds: Houston, We Have A Solution

    Aug 24, 2012, 5:54 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Maybe no team will have the kind of predicted-win variance from fans and experts this season than the Houston Rockets.…

  15. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  16. Report: Rockets sign Carlos Delfino to two-year deal

    Aug 13, 2012, 8:50 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Carlos Delfino reacts after making a three point basket against the Boston Celtics during the first half of a NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    The Rockets successfully filled their “underrated Argentinian player who drives opposing fans insane and seems to score way more than he should be capable of” gap left vacant when they waived Luis Scola using the amnesty clause. The Houston Chronicle reports the Rockets have signed Carlos Delfino to a two-year deal, with a team option…

  17. Is Daryl Morey following the Danny Ainge playbook?

    Jul 31, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    Daryl Morey

    For the past few years, the Rockets have been stuck in a rut of mediocrity — not terrible, fighting for a bottom playoff seed and either way ending up with a pick in the middle of the first round somewhere. Not a bad team, not a contender, just a team riding along in the middle.…

  18. The Inbounds: Daryl Morey and the point of no return

    Jul 20, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Daryl Morey

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Someone asked me two weeks ago why it was that everyone thought Daryl Morey was so good at his job.…

  19. Jeremy Lin a good fit in Houston, but don’t expect playoffs

    Jul 18, 2012, 6:23 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    As Knicks fans are slowly coming to grips with, when the NBA season tips off next fall Jeremy Lin will be a Rocket. Maybe he wanted to stay, doesn’t matter. Marketing people are already making the switch — bootleg No. 17 Lin rocket shirts are already out on the market, and the not bootleg ones…

  20. Rockets task Olajuwon with re-signing Dwight Howard if they pull off the trade

    Jul 14, 2012, 9:48 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The Rockets have a dream. And to keep the dream, should they get the dream, they’re going to use the Dream. Fox Sports Florida spoke with Hakeem Olajuwon regarding the Rockets’ prospective acquisition of Dwight Howard, and the Hall of Famer confirmed that should Houston pull off the biggest trade in franchise history (and there…

  21. Houston Rockets going hard after Dwight Howard dream

    Jul 13, 2012, 9:49 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey is going all-in. He is pushing his chips in and trying to win the bracelet. Or in this case, the ring. To win titles in the NBA you need to have a franchise anchor, a true superstar. Since 1980, one team has won a title without at least one of those…

  22. Report: Rockets looking to move Scola, just about anyone else

    Jun 30, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    Image (1) scola-thumb-275x203-14834.jpg for post 2836

    It’s not a fire sale. But it does feel like a clearance sale. Rockets GM Daryl Morey is clearly looking to make some big moves and shake up the Rockets roster. He brought in three picks in the top 20 from the NBA Draft — and tried to do a lot more — and now…

    Locate the refresh button on your browser now, because this is where you are going to want to be for the entire 2012 NBA Draft. Every pick will be discussed here, from Anthony Davis at No. 1 to the next Isaiah Thomas at No. 60 (last year’s final pick who turned out to end the…

  24. Rockets trade 14 pick, Dalembert to Bucks for 12 pick, parts

    Jun 27, 2012, 4:05 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    The Houston Rockets keep making moves and trading up the draft board, and you know they are aiming for something bigger. And the Milwaukee Bucks helped them out with a trade I don’t really get for them. The unstoppable force that is Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports broke the trade on twitter and it goes…

  25. Report: Kevin Martin will not re-sign in Houston. Think trade.

    Jun 27, 2012, 1:52 PM EDT

    Kevin Martin

    In all the buzz about the Rockets trading Chase Budinger to get the No. 18 pick — a move clearly a precursor to other moves — there was a lot of talk about who might get moved with a pick so Houston can move up. It may not be now, but look for Kevin Martin…
