    Syracuse v Wake Forest

    Jim Boeheim, who coached Carmelo Anthony at Syracuse, discussed Melo’s pending free agency with Jim Rome (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball). Boeheim: What I’d tell him is what I would tell any NBA great player. If you’re a great player in the NBA, for you to be recognized as a great player,…

    Feb 13, 2014, 2:33 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Golden State Warriors

    It looked seconds before like Stephen Curry was going to be the hero — he drove the lane and got an and-1 lay-up that had the Golden State Warriors up by 2 with time running down. But it’s still LeBron James‘ world. I love that Eric Spoelstra didn’t call a timeout — if you have…

  3. Report: If you want Rajon Rondo or Jeff Green then Celtics want a lot in return

    Feb 12, 2014, 9:53 PM EDT

    rondo

    This is exactly what Flip Saunders was talking about when he suggested this will be a slower than expected trade deadline because teams are not willing to part with picks in perceived good drafts. There is buzz out of Boston that GM Danny Ainge is shopping around just about everyone on the roster —Rajon Rondo…

    Feb 12, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    It’s been the barstool debate of the day around the NBA — who is on your Mt. Rushmore of the NBA? LeBron James gave his (Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson) then awakened the legions that want to hate him by saying when his career was over his face should be on that…

  5. LeBron gets the steal, finishes with windmill slam against Suns (VIDEO)

    LeBron James

    LeBron James turned in an MVP-level performance in Phoenix on Tuesday, finishing with 37 points, nine rebounds, three assists and five steals. Almost all of the steals were like this one — jumping the passing lane to create a live ball turnover, which resulted in a thunderous slam in transition. This dunk was actually the second…

  6. Monday night NBA grades: Time to stop shoveling dirt on Anthony Bennett

    Feb 12, 2014, 3:09 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking this may be the best soccer goal celebration ever…. Anthony Bennett, Cleveland Cavaliers. You don’t know how a draft pick is going to pan out for three years. You just don’t. Some guys start fast but never really develop beyond that (Tyreke Evans,…

  7. Heat grind out a win against pesky Suns

    Feb 11, 2014, 11:57 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Kevin Durant may very well win the MVP this season, due to a combination of the incredible individual performances he’s strung together along with the voter fatigue that surrounds LeBron James. But it won’t be because James has slipped, even in the slightest. Tuesday night in Phoenix, LeBron put together a performance that reminded us…

  8. LeBron James says when he’s done he’ll belong on NBA’s Mount Rushmore

    Feb 11, 2014, 9:06 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    It’s one of those bar stool sports debates — name the Mount Rushmore for your team. Who are the four players/coaches/owners/whoever that had the biggest impact on this franchise? ProFootballTalk did it with every NFL team. You can certainly do it with the NBA as well. LeBron James sat down with NBA TV  for an…

  9. LeBron puts on dunking exhibition after practice that probably bests All-Star Dunk Contest

    Feb 10, 2014, 4:21 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is never going to be part of the All-Star Weekend Dunk Contest. That window is closed, more risk than reward for him in that event. But he can throw it down. After Heat practice Monday in Phoenix (the Heat take on the Suns Tuesday) LeBron put on a little dunking exhibition and… damn.…

  10. Report: Steve Nash told friends he plans to retire after season. He says he’s not stopping.

    Feb 10, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Lakers

    While this is the dream of some Lakers fans and has some logic to it, let me caution you to take this report with a grain of salt. And if you were really fans of Steve Nash and basketball you’d be cheering for it not to be true. But a report out of New York,…

  11. Report: There is little to no chance Luol Deng re-signs in Cleveland

    Feb 7, 2014, 8:15 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Dallas Mavericks

    We already told you there were reports Luol Deng was dismayed at what he saw in Cleveland — as he should be. Of course, he came out and publicly denied this but what players say to the media when the mics are on and what they tell their friends are as different as what happened…

  12. 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.…

  13. LeBron says he and Wade questioned their fit together during first season in Miami (VIDEO)

    Feb 7, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    LeBron James,Dwyane Wade

    With three straight trips to the Finals and a fourth potentially looming this season, it’s easy to say now that LeBron James joining Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat in free agency was the right decision. But it didn’t start out that way. There was a real backlash against the Heat in that first season,…

  14. 2014 Slam Dunk Contest the most star-studded ever

    Feb 7, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Paul George

    It’s been 14 years since the Slam Dunk Contest has featured multiple All-Stars. Heck, in the last two years, no All-Stars have participated. But after years of pleas, the NBA has finally assembled a Dunk Contest field that includes the game’s top talent. Paul George, Damian Lillard and John Wall headline the 2014 event –…

  15. Mario Chalmers fined $5,000 for flop against Blake Griffin (VIDEO)

    Feb 6, 2014, 6:59 PM EDT

    chalmers

    That play from Wednesday night worked for Mario Chalmers — he drew and offensive foul on Blake Griffin. He also flopped — and that’s the second time this season he’s been caught flopping so the league came down on him with a $5,000 fine this season. Yes, a whopping $5,000. To be clear, do the…

  16. Giannis Antetokounmpo to compete in Skills Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend

    Feb 6, 2014, 6:14 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Typically, rookies don’t get noticed. Typically, players from overseas need more time to build an American following. Typically, Milwaukee Bucks are ignored. Giannis Antetokounmpo is definitely atypical. “The Greek Freak” has wowed fans all season with his long arms, diverse skillset and outward happiness. He’s been so impressive, he’ll be competing in Skills Challenge –…

  19. Raptors Kyle Lowry called for offensive foul on made three, ejected for reaction (VIDEO)

    Feb 6, 2014, 11:26 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Portland Trail Blazers

    That was a bad call. A kind of obviously bad call. Down six and going for a three in the final 30 seconds of the Raptors eventual loss to the Kings, Lowry was freed up for a catch-and-shoot three and got called for the offensive foul. What the referee misjudged was something they were specifically…

  20. LeBron gets the impressive chasedown block against Clippers (VIDEO)

    Feb 6, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    Wednesday night’s contest between the Heat and the Clippers was so entertaining that we could honestly drop a half-dozen highlights here that would all be worthy of your time. Instead, we’ll focus on this defensive gem from LeBron James, who was able to close incredibly quickly and perfectly time his chasedown rejection of Darren Collison…

  21. Clippers should get Chris Paul back on court Sunday

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The Clippers have gone 11-6 since Chris Paul went out Jan. 3 with a separated shoulder. It’s been an impressive run, with Blake Griffin stepping up and showing off a more well-rounded game. In those 17 games the Clippers have averaged 111.7 points per 100 possessions, best in the NBA. It makes you wonder how…

  22. 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,…

  23. Heat start hot then hang on to beat Clippers

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:13 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    This was a nationally televised against a top-four team in the West in the Clippers — these are the kind of games that shake the Heat out of their mid-season malaise. And when the Heat play like they did early Wednesday night it is a beautiful thing. Miami’s first quarter was as good as they…

  24. Detroit Pistons finally alter starting lineup

    Feb 5, 2014, 6:02 PM EDT

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Singler

    After weeks and weeks of everyone clamoring for the Pistons to change their starting lineup, they’ve finally done it. But Josh Smith, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond – who excel in pairs, just not as a trio – will still be starting together in the frontcourt. Instead Kyle Singler will replace Kentavious Caldwell-Pope at shooting…

  25. Report: If LeBron decides to leave Miami he knows he can land anywhere he wants

    Feb 5, 2014, 2:02 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    We’re only talking about this because it’s LeBron James, the best player on the planet right now. And we’re talking about this because general managers are allowed to dream — and they dream of LeBron opting out of his contract this summer (he has that option) and forcing his way to their team. The hard…
