  1. Clippers ask long-time fan Clipper Darrell to stop using that name

    Mar 1, 2012, 11:04 AM EDT

    clipper darrell

    This is about brand image and money getting in the way of passion. It’s about misguided loyalty. It’s about the Clippers still being the Clippers. You know Darrell Baily as Clipper Darrell — the most passionate, long-time fan the Clippers have ever had. The guy with the blue-and-red suit (and car to match). He was…

  2. Report: Celtics “aggressively” shopping Rajon Rondo

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:23 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo (9) shoots over Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    You know changes are coming to the Boston Celtics over the next few months — if not at the trade deadline certainly over the summer. The logical progression seemed to be the older “Big Three” — Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett — would be on their way out and Rajon Rondo would be…

  3. Report: Howard won’t sign extension with Lakers, but they are not out of it

    Feb 29, 2012, 12:41 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s all about the money. And it’s not necessarily as big a deal as Lakers fans think. But it might give the Lakers front office pause. Lakers radio play-by-play man (and long-time Los Angeles sports personality) John Ireland reported on Tuesday that Dwight Howard’s agent Donald Fegan told the Lakers his client will not sign…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Time to fear Brook Lopez?

    Feb 29, 2012, 6:30 AM EDT

    Deshawn Stevenson

    What you missed while you were spilling beer on the German Chancellor…. Nets 93, Mavericks 92: Dallas, you did a terrible job of trying to impress Deron Williams and make him want to join your roster. Starting late in the third quarter the Mavericks went on an 0-13 shooting streak, they didn’t have a field…

  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. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Video: Chris Paul with off-the-backboard ally-oop to Durant

    Feb 26, 2012, 11:54 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Chris Paul‘s passing makes every dunk just a little bit better. (Ask Blake Griffin if you don’t believe me.) Here Paul takes the outlet lob (can’t really call that a pass) and sets up Kevin Durant for one of the better dunks of the night. Next year for the All-Star Dunk Contest, Chris Paul should…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.…

  13. The bizarre dichotomy of the NBA All-Star Game

    Feb 26, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Sunday night, 24 players will amble into the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. Many of them will be hungover, sleep-deprived, or both from a night of partying at all the hot spots during the biggest nightlife year for the NBA universe. They will casually go through the media requirements, slowly get dressed, do some casual…

  14. Grading Dunk Contest dunks: Evans and Budinger get an A

    Feb 25, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    It was not a great contest, and worst of all it felt scripted, like the Kardashian “reality” shows. But I guess that’s where we’ve gotten to with the All-Star Dunk Contest. It’s style over substance. And only a couple dunks really impressed We’ve graded all 12 dunks from the contest (from A to F, like…

  15. Video: A Kia dunks over Blake Griffin

    Feb 25, 2012, 3:44 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    One year ago today (give or take), Blake Griffin won the NBA Dunk Contest jumping over the hood of a Kia while Baron Davis threw him the ally-oop out  of a sunroof. As part of a Kia commercial from Funny or Die, now a Kia tries to do a dunk over him. Griffin has a…

  16. Dunk Contest gives Evans, others chance to make name for themselves

    Feb 25, 2012, 9:50 AM EDT

    Jeremy Evans

    There is no Blake Griffin. No Dwight Howard. Not even a Nate Robinson. The NBA’s All-Star Saturday Night Dunk Contest is a showcase event this year filled with a bunch of names that had casual fans saying, “who is that?” But for Jeremy Evans, it’s a chance. Evans is a human pogo stick — the…

  17. NBA’s Rising Stars know exhibition drill, put on dunk fest

    Feb 24, 2012, 11:58 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Give the people what they want. Nobody tuned in to the BBVA Rising Stars game Friday night of All-Star weekend to watch defense — they wanted to see dunks, crazy passes and guys carpet bombing threes. Then more dunks off ally-oops. Then Jeremy Lin. In that case, the fans got their money’s worth. Friday night…

  18. Kyrie Irving scores 34 points, named MVP of the Rising Stars Challenge

    Feb 24, 2012, 11:55 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Kyrie Irving was the number one overall pick in last year’s NBA draft, but he was largely selected there for his ability to create for his teammates first, with his scoring being an afterthought. In the Rising Stars Challenge, which kicked off All-Star weekend on Friday, he showcased what’s possible for him offensively, scoring 34…

  19. Video: Ricky Rubio dribbles between defender’s legs, finishes with lob to Blake Griffin for the dunk

    Feb 24, 2012, 10:36 PM EDT

    ricky-rubio-rising-stars-challenge

    The Rising Stars Challenge on All-Star weekend’s opening night was largely an abomination, with players going half-speed, playing zero defense, and only occasionally producing the kind of highlights one would hope to see in an exhibition game. But there were a few noteworthy moments, and this one, started by Ricky Rubio dribbling between the legs…

  20. Blake Griffin dishes out some dunk contest advice

    Feb 24, 2012, 5:25 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin car dunk

    Blake Griffin won last year’s dunk contest in an exciting and memorable way that most think will be difficult to top by any of the contestants participating in the event this year.  Jumping over a car isn’t something we see every day, and last year, JaVale McGee said he had no shot to top it…

  21. Chris Paul confirms he will stay with Clippers next season

    Feb 23, 2012, 7:20 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    When Chris Paul was traded to the Clippers, it was with the understanding that he would give them a couple years — this season, and he would opt-in for next season. Opt in for a cool $17.8 million. But there was a concern he would opt-out after this season, either to go play with someone…

  22. Warriors willing to trade Monta Ellis, but only for superstar

    Feb 23, 2012, 2:26 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    In an annual tradition like Meryl Streep getting an Oscar nomination, the Monta Ellis trade rumors have started to swirl. Golden State likes Monta Ellis for all the same reasons you covet him for your team — there are few better pure scorers in the league. At the end of the day, putting ball in…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lin, ‘Melo play together well

    Feb 23, 2012, 5:58 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    What you missed while stacking 2.5 feet of pancakes… Warriors 106, Suns 104: We have other details, but you really should just click this link to see Monta Ellis’ game winning shot. Knicks 99, Hawks 82: It was just a second game with everyone healthy on the Knicks, but you could see an improved chemistry.…

  24. Charles Oakley pretty much thinks that everybody is a wimp

    Feb 21, 2012, 5:26 PM EDT

    Charles Oakley

    Charles Oakley was on Jim Rome’s radio show today, and the former Bulls big man had some choice words for Kevin Garnett, Charles Barkley, and Kendrick Perkins. Here are the highlights, courtesy of Larry Brown Sports: “Garnett left Minnesota and hollered and screamed and all that but hes not a tough guy,” Oakley said as Sports…

  25. Report: Lakers interested in trading for Michael Beasley

    Feb 21, 2012, 10:57 AM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    The Lakers need scoring, they need someone who can create his own shot not on the perimeter not named Kobe Bryant, they need depth. And they are desperate enough to consider Michael Beasley. No, this is not a Pau Gasol trade — come on, nobody is that stupid — but there have been talks, according…
