    Mar 22, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Duke v Mercer

    A poor outing in the NCAA Tournament and his being benched at the end of the game by Mike Krzyzewski alerted America to what NBA scouts already knew — Jabari Parker doesn’t play defense. In the latest edition of the PBT Podcast myself and Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio cover bring in Ed Isaacson…

    Memphis Grizzlies vs Miami Heat

    Memphis is not going far come the playoffs without Marc Gasol. Which is why him spraining his ankle and leaving the game against the Miami Heat on Friday night was not good news. Nor was this. Gasol leaving American Airlines Arena in a walking boot— Ronald Tillery (@CAGrizBeat) March 22, 2014 These days the walking…

  8. Phil Jackson to Knicks could work. It probably won’t, but it could.

    Mar 15, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Jackson

    Ultimately Thomas Wolfe will be proven right, you can’t go home again. Not even Phil Jackson. It’s easy to sit back and list the reasons Jackson’s return to the team that drafted him, taking over basketball operations of the New York Knicks, will not work: James Dolan; Jackson has never had any front office experience before;…

    Mar 7, 2014, 5:46 PM EDT

    New York Knicks vs Miami Heat

    According to every reliable source, Carmelo Anthony is going to opt out of the final year of his contract this season and look either to re-sign a five-year deal with the Knicks or move on to another team to be part of a contender. If Anthony wants to jump ship and go somewhere like oft-mentioned…

  10. Report: Lakers will wait for 2015 free agents like Kevin Love unless they can get LeBron (Sorry, Melo)

    Mar 5, 2014, 10:45 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Jordan Hill, Wesley Johnson

    The Lakers are poised to make a big free agent splash this summer or the next, and Steve Nash is the lynchpin to the decision. If the Lakers want to go big this offseason, they’ll use the stretch provision on Nash, spreading the amount they owe him across the cap the next three years. But…

  11. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder, Heat on top coming up to trade deadline

    Feb 8, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Sacramento Kings

    With Marc Gasol back in the line-up and great fit on the perimeter in Courtney Lee, the Memphis Grizzlies look like a threat in the West again.

  13. LeBron says he should be Defensive Player of the Year

    Feb 7, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    Heat vs. Spurs

    It’s going to be Roy Hibbert. If you were going to bet on one sure thing out of the NBA’s awards this season, you should bet on Roy Hibbert being named Defensive Player of the Year. More than Durant as MVP or Michael Carter-Williams as Rookie of the Year, Hibbert is a lock for DPOY.…

  14. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

  15. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

  16. Doc Rivers lobbied other coaches to vote DeAndre Jordan an All-Star. It won’t be enough.

    Jan 30, 2014, 2:26 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Boston Celtics

    Later on Thursday the NBA All-Star Game reserves will be announced — and in the Western Conference frontcourt a couple deserving guys will get snubbed.

    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.…

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

  20. The Extra Pass: The best possible nickname jerseys; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Jan 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    If you missed it last week, the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets played with nicknames on the back of their jerseys instead of their last names. Once I was able to shush the crotchety old man that sometimes takes over my brain, I really enjoyed it. Ray Allen‘s “J. Shuttlesworth” jersey, a nod to his…

  25. NBA says there’s been no increase in rate of ‘significant’ injuries this season

    Dec 30, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Unless you’re a hardcore fan of one of a small group of five NBA teams, the injuries sustained this season to many of the league’s star players have made this a dismal campaign thus far. The Thunder are one of the five, but we’ve seen them have to deal with missed time from Russell Westbrook,…
