    What is it about New Orleans that they get all the best celebrity introductions? A few weeks ago it was Will Ferrell. Now on Thursday night when Chris Paul and the Clippers come to New Orleans it will be Samuel L. Jackson, reports the Times-Picayune. The Oscar-nominated actor, in town to shoot Quentin Tarantino’s “Django…

  2. Wednesday And-1 links: Who are the NBA’s best floppers?

    Mar 21, 2012, 11:10 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Who are the NBA’s best floppers? These guys. But Chris Paul is really…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Heat hotter than the Suns

    Mar 21, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem drives to the basket against the Phoenix Suns in the first half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while wondering why someone whose job it was to smuggle cocaine into the United States would get the personalized license plate “SMUGLER”… Heat 99, Suns 95: It looked like the Suns had a road upset in their pocket — they led most of the fourth quarter and were up 10 with just…

  4. Could ‘Melo’s role with D’Antoni cost him a spot on Team USA?

    Mar 20, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd, Olympics

    Mike Krzyzewski and the coaches of Team USA have some very tough decisions ahead of them as they trim the list of 20 candidates down to 12 who get to suit up in London this summer for the Olympics. Look at the power forward spot. You only really need three and the guys on that…

  5. Clipper Darrell will continue to be Clipper Darrell

    Mar 19, 2012, 7:08 PM EDT

    clipper darrell

    Well, our relatively short local unpleasant dream is over. Darrell Bailey, a Clippers super-fan who has been in the news lately when the Clippers sought to ban him from calling himself “Clipper Darrell” when he made public appearances, will continue to use the name “Clipper Darrell.” From ESPN Los Angeles’ Arash Markazi: [Bailey and the…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Suns are rising, Spurs climb too.

    Mar 19, 2012, 2:27 PM EDT

    John Lucas III, Carlos Boozer

    Trade deadline moves aren’t changing the top of the rankings much, but we will see Portland and some other teams fall in the coming weeks. And we don’t know what the Nets are thinking either, so don’t ask. 1. Bulls (37-10, last week ranked number 1). They beat the Heat without Derrick Rose in the…

  7. Video: Blake Griffin takes seat in front row, drives up drycleaning bills

    Mar 19, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    I suppose if you can afford front row seats to an NBA game, you can afford the dry cleaning bill that is going to come with Blake Griffin spilling beer all over you. Now, whether you can afford another beer at the Staples Center prices is another matter. (Why is it you pay more for…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bosh looks good in Heat victory

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:10 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while thinking a new study proves your children are brilliant…. Heat 91, Magic 81: Everybody talks about the big man the Heat could use. We often underestimate Chris Bosh — he had 23 points on 13 shots. Dwyane Wade owned the fourth quarter with 14 of his 31 coming then, when the…

  9. Video: Another day, another monster slam from Blake Griffin

    Mar 18, 2012, 12:02 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin is going to end his career mentioned with Vince Carter, Shawn Kemp and the other great in-game dunkers of the NBA at his peak. Because he does things like this every game. It helps to have Chris Paul feeding you and all, but this guy is a monster. Whether he finishes his career…

  10. LeBron says we shouldn’t compare his free agent decision to Dwight Howard’s

    Mar 16, 2012, 10:13 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard and Miami Heat forward LeBron James talk during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Orlando

    After a great deal of deliberation, Dwight Howard decided to opt-in for the additional year on his contract, staying in Orlando for at least one more season. It obviously was a difficult decision, evidenced by the fact that Howard changed his mind seemingly a thousand times before signing the necessary paperwork to stay with Magic.…

  11. Who has the best hesitation move in the Association?

    Mar 16, 2012, 9:01 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose LeBron James

    Fun video from the fine folks at NBA.com. I tend to agree it is Chris Paul or Derrick Rose, but they both use them so differently. With CP3 it’s like in that split second he soaks everything in then makes the best play for the team. Rose just uses it to blow by you before…

  12. Clippers hold hour-long, closed-door meeting after ugly loss

    Mar 16, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin

    The Clippers blew a 12-point fourth quarter lead at home to a Phoenix Suns team playing without Steve Nash or Grant Hill. That is pretty much the textbook definition of an ugly loss. The Clippers have had a number of losses lately, most accompanied by some poor end-of-game execution. Take the ball out Chris Paul’s…

  13. Don’t expect the Hornets to buy out Chris Kaman

    Mar 16, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman, Nene

    The usual pattern goes like this: Team tries hard to trade overpriced veteran player, then if they find no takes they buy him out after the trade deadline. Then he signs elsewhere for the minimum (or fades into the sunset) That’s not going to be the pattern with Chris Kaman of the Hornets. New Orleans…

  14. Friday And-1 links: Did Wade mock Dwight Howard’s loyalty?

    Mar 16, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard

    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). Was Dwyane Wade mocking Dwight Howard’s loyalty to the Magic? Kind of looks that way to me. Rudy Gay has cleared the league concussion protocols…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Clippers collapse leads to a lot of talk

    Mar 16, 2012, 9:04 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    What you missed while watching your NCAA bracket go up in flames…. Suns 91, Clippers 87: Phoenix was on the second night of a back-to-back-to-back so coach Alvin Gentry decided to rest Grant Hill and Steve Nash — and the Suns still rallied from 12 back in the fourth quarter to win. The Suns have…

  16. Video: Kenyon Martin still has some hops left

    Mar 16, 2012, 8:26 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    There was a time when Kenyon Martin was one of the more feared dunkers in the league. Enjoy the video above as we travel back to that time… wait, what? This was Thursday night? But he’s 34 now? apparently watching Blake Griffin has rekindled a little of Martin’s ferociousness around the rim.  It’s fun to…

  17. Surveying trade deadline landscape: League’s second tier got better

    Mar 16, 2012, 12:56 AM EDT

    Nick Young

    As you survey the NBA landscape in the aftermath of the storm that is always the NBA trade deadline, and a couple things leap out: First, the title contenders did not change — and they all stood pat. In the East, the path to the finals goes through Miami and Chicago and nobody really moved…

  18. Video: Pau Gasol, happy to still be with the Lakers

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:25 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol drives between Boston Celtics Brandon Bass and Celtics Jermaine O'Neal in the first half of their NBA basketball game at TD Garden in Boston

    It was a rough first half of the season for Pau Gasol. Ever since training camp, when he was included in the trade that would have sent him out of town in exchange for Chris Paul, except that it was vetoed … well, it was never really agreed to by the Hornets’ ownership, so technically…

  19. NBA trade deadline report cards: Portland gets an “A”

    Mar 15, 2012, 8:04 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace, Raymond Felton

    Dwight Howard didn’t get traded and neither did any of Boston’s big three. But there were plenty of moves at the deadline. Here are our grades for each team. Atlanta Hawks: They wanted to move one player to get themselves under the luxury tax line (they are $440,000 over it). They couldn’t do it. So…

  20. Denver trades Nene to Wizards in three-team deal with Clippers

    Mar 15, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison, Nene

    When the lockout ended, Nene was maybe the most coveted free agent out there — a true big man who is a borderline All-Star theoretically entering his prime. Denver was able to keep him with a five-year, $67 million contract. However, he has spent a chunk of this season injured and not putting up his…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls beat Heat even without that Rose guy

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James is guarded by Chicago Bulls' John Lucas and Luol Deng during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while waiting for Dwight Howard to change his mind again…. Bulls 106, Heat 102: This just shows the different mentalities of these two teams. No Derrick Rose, no Richard Hamilton and yet the Bulls just brought it with fantastic energy. They defended, guys like John Lucas III (24 points) and Jimmy Butler…

  24. Report: D’Antoni wanted to trade ‘Melo for Deron Williams

    Mar 14, 2012, 5:04 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    We know that now-former New York Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni and team owner James Dolan met Wednesday morning and came out of that meeting deciding to resign because of differences in how they saw the future of the organization. Those differences were major — D’Antoni wanted to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Nets for Deron…

  25. Winderman: Why Orlando has to trade Dwight Howard

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:17 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    That’s a pretty impressive piece of trivia that Stan Van Gundy is about to be attached to, if you believe the scuttlebutt: the first NBA head coach to be fired by both Shaquille O’Neal and Dwight Howard (if you accepted the speculation back in December 2005 with the Heat). But if we actually decide to…
