  1. Delonte West talks about, denies “that rumor”

    Feb 29, 2012, 1:49 AM EDT

    Delonte West, Roy Hibbert, Danny Granger

    At PBT, up to now I’ve avoided doing a post about “that” Delonte West rumor. You know the one. Because I never believed it — no source I trusted ever confirmed it and those closest to the team always said it was not true. Yet it was out there and will not go away —…

  2. All-Star Weekend draws great ratings

    Feb 28, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    The NBA has sent out a series of press releases on the overnight ratings for its All-Star Weekend events, which were very strong across the board. The format change to the “Rising Stars Game” — which went to a “Team Shaq vs. Team Chuck” format this year, as opposed to the traditional rookies vs. sophomores…

  3. Orlando fans make a music video asking Dwight Howard to stay in Orlando

    Feb 28, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    I’ll let Page 2’s Patrick Dorsey explain this video: On Friday we made the case for Orlando as a suitable metropolis for Magic center Dwight Howard, and included a video from local musician Jeff Wilson and the Orlando Sentinel. Now we have an updated version of the video, from local lawyer/superfan Dennis Salvagio, a.k.a. The Fat Guy,…

  4. Miami players talk about Wade’s hard All-Star Game foul on Kobe

    Feb 28, 2012, 5:50 PM EDT

    kobe-bryant-all-star

    During Sunday’s All-Star game, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade delivered a hard foul on Kobe Bryant that resulted in Bryant breaking his nose. Today, the Heat’s “Big Three” all talked about the foul and the resulting injury. Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel says that Wade has apologized to Bryant for injuring him, but does say…

  5. Tuesday And-1 links: Let the trade rumors begin

    Feb 28, 2012, 11:46 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    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). The Golden State Warriors have their eye on Brook Lopez (if that whole “trade for Dwight Howard” thing doesn’t work out for the Nets). Ramon…

  6. First half of NBA season awards, second half predictions

    Feb 28, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dribbles the ball in the first half of their NBA basketball game against the New York Knicks in Miami

    So much for the little rest stop in Orlando. It was fun. The breakneck pace of the NBA’s condensed post-lockout season picks up again Tuesday night. The pedal goes to the metal and we head for the playoffs. Before the engines fully rev up again, we’re going to take stock. But rather than just give…

  7. Video: Kobe plans to play through concussion, Nash could be on the trade block. 5 Questions with Adrian Wojnarowski

    Feb 27, 2012, 9:08 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports sits down to talk about the All-Star Game, the repercussions of Dwyane Wade‘s foul on Kobe Bryant, how the Mavericks can make a run at Deron Williams and Dwight Howard, and if Steve Nash could head to… Orlando?

  8. What LeBron James did in All-Star Game just doesn’t matter

    Feb 27, 2012, 6:15 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Not to go all Bill Murray in “Meatballs,” but: It just doesn’t matter. What LeBron James did at the end of regulation in the All-Star Game — deciding to try and make a pass with 1.9 seconds left rather than make the aggressive play and take a shot over Kobe Bryant (who was yelling at…

  9. NBA Power Rankings: All-Star Weekend edition

    Feb 27, 2012, 4:50 PM EDT

    Heat's Wade and James watch teammate Chalmers compete in three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    With no games after Thursday, we don’t have a lot of movement in the standings this week, but we tie in some All-Star Weekend notes and look ahead at the second half for teams. 1. Heat (27-7, last week ranked 1). LeBron James’ All-Star performance is what fans seem to expect from him — 36…

  10. Recapping PBT’s coverage of All-Star weekend from Orlando

    Feb 27, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    After four exciting and exhausting days in Orlando for All-Star weekend, it’s time for PBT to get out of town. The weather was good, and the city itself might be great, but we wouldn’t know due to spending the entire time shuttled between hotels, convention centers, and of course, the Amway Center downtown. Speaking of…

  11. Video: Russell Westbrook’s power dunk in All-Star Game

    Feb 27, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    West All-Stars Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma Thunder dunks as East All Stars LeBron James and West's Kevin Love looks on

    We could run dunk highlights from the All-Star Game all day long Monday (and there will be more) but this was one of our favorites. Not only because it’s a powerful slam by Westbrook, but look at the photo (below) and check out LeBron James‘ reaction.

  12. Your 2012 All-Star Game winners and losers

    Feb 27, 2012, 12:01 AM EDT

    NBA/

    It’s an exhibition, but it’s still a competition. Someone has to win (the West, 152-149). Someone has to lose. We’re here to sort it all out for you. The winners. The losers. And even how you can be both. Winner: Kevin Durant. The game MVP did it all — he had maybe the best dunk…

  13. Kevin Durant wins 2012 All-Star MVP, West beats East 152-149

    Feb 26, 2012, 11:56 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    The 2012 NBA All-Star game started off as a blowout, but ended up being competitive to the final possession. Kevin Durant and LeBron James tied for the game-high in scoring with 36 points each, but Durant got the MVP nod as his West squad held on to win in exciting fashion, 152-149. Durant started off…

  14. Video: LeBron’s nasty windmill dunk from All-Star Game

    Feb 26, 2012, 8:59 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    The first half of the NBA All-Star Game Sunday saw more — and more creative — dunks than we saw in the actual Dunk Contest Saturday night. One of the best was the windmill from LeBron James. By the way, LeBron had five first half dunks, one ahead of Blake Griffin‘s four, as they had…

  15. West sets All-Star game record by scoring 88 points in the first half

    Feb 26, 2012, 8:54 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    The 2012 All-Star game hasn’t been filled with a ton of memorable highlights just yet, but here in Orlando at halftime, one of the teams has accomplished something worth noting. The West is out to an 88-69 lead over the East, and the 88 points is a record for the most scored in a half.…

  16. Kevin Durant wants LeBron, Westbrook, star power in Dunk Contest

    Feb 26, 2012, 7:15 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dunks against the Chicago Bulls during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    We can all admit it — Saturday night’s NBA Dunk Contest was sad. It was scripted and felt stiff. Jeremy Evans deserved the win for a legitimately impressive dunk, and a lot of people liked Paul George’s black-light dunk (more than I did). But overall, not good. Kevin Durant is thinking exactly what you are…

  17. David Stern defends Dwight Howard’s right to leave Orlando

    Feb 25, 2012, 8:46 PM EDT

    David-Stern-all-star-2012

    NBA commissioner David Stern held his annual All-Star weekend press conference from the Amway Center in Orlando on Saturday, and not surprisingly, one of the first questions that came up was about Dwight Howard. Howard, as you may have heard, is an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, and he’s gone back…

  18. LeBron James might try the dunk contest … if the winner received a million dollars

    Feb 25, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dunks against the Chicago Bulls during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    LeBron James in unquestionably one of the most violent dunkers in the game today, and could easily compete with anyone in the league in a slam dunk contest if that’s something he wanted to do. But up until this point, despite empty promises and a tease from time to time, he hasn’t decided to commit.…

  19. Jeremy Lin talks D’Antoni system, overcoming bias

    Feb 24, 2012, 9:27 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    The Mavericks’ Jason Terry said what a number of people — a decreasing number every day, but they are out there — have said about Jeremy Lin: He is a system guy. Mike D’Antoni’s offensive system is designed to give the point guard numbers, and Lin is a product of it more than anything else.…

  20. All-Star 2012 interview: Miami Heat rookie Norris Cole

    Feb 24, 2012, 4:50 PM EDT

    Norris Cole

    Miami Heat rookie Norris Cole has made an impact early this season, despite playing alongside veteran superstars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. We caught up with him Friday morning at the practice session for the Rising Stars challenge, and discussed what it’s like to play with that kind of star power, how he and his…

  21. Oscar Robertson tells Dwight Howard to “keep mouth shut”

    Feb 23, 2012, 2:59 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    What LeBron James did, what Carmelo Anthony did, what Dwight Howard is doing — that does not sit well with an older generation of players. Say, for example Oscar Robertson. Mr. I averaged a triple-double for an entire season. One of the game’s 50 greatest players (easily). Robertson — one of the trail blazers of…

  22. Heat have a plan for Jeremy Lin… and it’s not who you think

    Feb 23, 2012, 11:31 AM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Jeremy Lin vs. Joel Anthony. That is the matchup that will determine the highly anticipated showdown between the Miami Heat and New York Knicks Thursday night in South Beach. Not LeBron James or Dwyane Wade — although they will both get their say — but rather Joel Anthony. Let me explain. (Tom Haberstroh at ESPN…

  23. LeBron says he expects to cover Jeremy Lin some Thursday

    Feb 22, 2012, 3:08 PM EDT

    Miami Heats LeBron James looks on during their NBA basketball game against his former team the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    Jeremy Lin has stood up pretty tall to every test he’s faced the past few weeks — the Knicks haven’t won every game, but he’s not wilted in the spotlight. However, the Miami Heat’s defensive energy and athleticism on the perimeter is a whole different ballgame. And Lin is going to get all of it…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs take vacation in Portland

    Feb 22, 2012, 10:05 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Tim Duncan Spurs

    What you missed while filling out your Oscar pool…. Trail Blazers 137, Spurs 97: Gregg Popovich decided to sacrifice the Spurs 11-game win streak on the alter of rest. He sat Tony Parker and Tim Duncan (Manu Ginobili is already out with an oblique strain). The result was kind of what you’d expect with the…

  25. Video: LeBron James with block, 60-foot ally-oop pass

    Feb 22, 2012, 5:02 AM EDT

    Heat forward James and guard Wade laugh during the closing minutes against the Mavericks in Dallas, Texas

    LeBron James and Dwyane Wade know how to put on a show. This is not really as good as the baseball-pass ally-oop from Wade to LeBron earlier in the year, but it comes close thanks to the block by LeBron at one end and the acrobatic finish by Wade at the other. The Heat rack…
