  1. NBA Power Rankings: How would you feel about a Spurs/Celtics NBA finals?

    Jan 31, 2011, 2:29 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kobe Bryant

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where we’re thinking that the finals could be Spurs and Celtics because no teams are executing anywhere near their level right now in crunch time. 1. Spurs (40-7). They are now 7.5 games ahead of the second place Lakers in the Western Conference (and 4 ahead of Boston for the…

  2. Kevin Durant calls Chris Bosh “a fake tough guy”

    Jan 30, 2011, 7:07 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Kevin Durant and Chris Bosh had some words today in the Thunder’s loss to the Heat, and then spoke some even stronger words to the press post-game. In the first quarter, the two were involved in a small altercation of words that resulted in double technicals for both stars. Bosh says the altercation was the…

  3. MRI reveals elbow bruise for Dwyane Wade, Wade listed as day-to-day

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Miami Heat

    UPDATE SATURDAY 4:50 p.m. EST: Heat fans, you can exhale. An MRI came back negative for Wade’s elbow, and he’s listed as day-to-day. What that means for the Heat’s game against the Thunder Sunday is anyone’s guess, but at least it’s not time for abject panic.   So Dwyane Wade was ruled out of Friday…

  4. Wade to miss game with wrist sprain

    Jan 28, 2011, 7:24 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    According to Ira Winderman of the Flordia Sun-Sentinel, Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat will miss tonight’s game against the Detroit Pistons due to a right wrist sprain he suffered in the second half of the Heat’s loss to the New York Knicks on Thursday. Wade scored 34 points on 14-22 shooting against the Knicks,…

  5. Pistons without Stuckey, Wallace and Hamilton Friday against Heat

    Jan 28, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey injured

    We knew Rip Hamilton was not going to play Friday night for the Pistons against the Heat. He’s officially out with the stomach flu but even if he were officially at the arena and ready to play he’d be benched by coach John Kuester because… we don’t know. But he would be. However it’s much…

  6. Dunk of the Night: Turns out that LeBron guy is pretty athletic

    Jan 28, 2011, 8:59 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The pace of the Knicks game against the small ball Heat was not as fast as you’d think (90 possessions, which is 6.6 possessions slower than the average Knicks game and even one slower than the average Heat game). Particularly in the fourth quarter. But when the teams did get out and run we got…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Don’t fear the Heat

    Jan 28, 2011, 2:26 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    What you missed while getting ready for the Angry Birds television series…. Knicks 93, Heat 88: It seems weird to say this, but the Knicks won this with defense. They clearly came in with a plan to focus on LeBron James, not let him beat them. He finished with 24 points but on 7-of-24 shooting.…

  8. Miami Heat help Tim Hardaway out with his not-so-little tax problem

    Jan 27, 2011, 8:56 PM EDT

    Tim Hardaway #10

    One of my theories in life is it’s good to know rich people. Because sometimes they can help you out when things seem pretty hopeless. Like if you owed the IRS $120,000 to the Internal Revenue Service and weren’t sure how to pay it. That’s the spot former NBA and Miami Heat star Tim Hardaway…

  9. Wade plans to wear dark goggles to reduce migraines, league officials say otherwise

    Jan 27, 2011, 7:15 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    UPDATE (7:15 PM EST): It appears Wade won’t be wearing dark glasses after all. According to the Associated Press, the goggles Wade was planning to wear have been deemed a “competitive advantage” by the league office, and will not be allowed for tonight’s game. I don’t see how wearing sunglasses at night really tips the…

  10. LeBron, Wade love Madison Square Garden (just not enough to sign with the Knicks, apparently)

    Jan 27, 2011, 3:21 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Madison Square Garden remains one of the iconic buildings in the NBA. It’s New York — Concrete jungle where dreams are made of. Visitors get pumped up to play there — which for a long time meant guys like Kobe Bryant were going to drop a big number on the hapless Knicks. The Knicks are…

  11. PBT Thursday morning one liners

    Jan 27, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    New feature here at PBT — which we are stealing from ProFootballTalk, and if we get the chance we’re going to take Florio’s lunch money, too —  that is a collection of links from things we find interesting (but didn’t turn into a full post). James Johnson likely will be assigned to the D-League by…

  12. Stoudemire: “Nobody’s afraid of the Miami Heat”

    Jan 27, 2011, 9:45 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    The New York Knicks have lost both meetings with the Miami Heat this season and come into Thursday’s showdown just 3-7 in their last 10 overall. But you have to like this about Amar’e Stoudemire — he is defiant (as reported by ESPN New York). “Nobody’s afraid of the Miami Heat.” The Heat squad that…

  13. Knicks pass Lakers as league’s most valuable franchise

    Jan 26, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire high five

    The return of the Knicks to prominence has led to a 12 percent jump in the value of the franchise, vaulting it over the Lakers into the top spot on Forbes’ rankings of NBA franchise value. The Knicks jumped from a worth of $586 million to $655 million, based on increased season ticket sales and…

  14. Chris Bosh looks mahvelous on Maxim photo shoot video

    Jan 26, 2011, 4:31 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Of Miami’s triad of stars, Chris Bosh is the one really enjoying the turn at celebrity. Not that he was a nobody before, but this is a whole new level of famous. The people from Maxim do not call guys from the Toronto Raptors for sunny, poolside photo shoots. They called Bosh. Maxim released a…

  15. Bosh has high ankle sprain, could miss another week, more

    Jan 25, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is not the best player on the Miami Heat. He may be the most indispensable — with Udonis Haslem out, the drop off among bigs after Bosh is dramatic. They have nobody else who comes close to bringing what Bosh brings to the table. And Bosh is going to be out a little…

  16. Mario Chalmers takes over as Heat starting point guard

    Jan 24, 2011, 4:08 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    Carlos Arroyo is out as the Heat’s starting point guard. Mario Chalmers is in. But it really doesn’t make that big a difference. These two remain interchangeable parts used depending on the situation. And there is a good chance next season it will be someone entirely new at the point in Miami. The fantastic Kevin…

  17. Erik Spoelstra explains LeBron and Wade in pie charts

    Jan 24, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Erik Spoelstra is a detail guy. The pregame whiteboard in the Heat locker room is likely the most detailed, organized one in the league — two columns of diagrammed favorite plays of the opponents, a column of sets the Heat want to run, reminders of the night’s focus on offense and defense down the middle.…

  18. D’Antoni not that worried about Knicks six-game losing streak

    Jan 24, 2011, 10:36 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    When a hitter is in a slump in July — let’s say, hypothetically the entire Dodgers roster — there seems to be a game or two where he starts hitting the ball hard but still can’t buy a hit. You can feel the slump’s about to end, it just won’t. Mike D’Antoni sounds that way…

  19. Denver’s other big problem: Nene

    Jan 23, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Beyond the ongoing, never-ending, painfully unresolved saga of Carmelo Anthony lies the dread and doom of another situation. If you check Denver’s books, you’ll notice that Nene has an ETO (Early Termination Option) for 2011, meaning he can jump ship and enter free agency should he elect to do so. Nene loves Denver and wants…

  20. Bosh out, Wade questionable as Miami tries to stop skid

    Jan 22, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    The Heat are now on a four game losing streak, and the easy answer is injury, which has kept at least one of the Triad out since their first loss of this streak against the… ahem… Clippers. And against Toronto in Miami this evening, it would appear they’re going to be short at least one…

  21. Are we going to see LeBron’s post-up game?

    Jan 21, 2011, 6:45 PM EDT

    LeBron Post

    At 6-9 and an estimated 270 pounds, LeBron James is the same size as Blake Griffin and Karl Malone. He usually has at least 30 or 40 pounds on anybody who guards him. He is one of the strongest players in the league, and has no problem finishing inside with either hand. All of those…

  22. Phil Jackson thinks the Celtics will win the East

    Jan 19, 2011, 5:41 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    Legendary coach Phil Jackson has never been shy about using the media to take not-so-sly shots at rival teams, players, and coaches, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to stop any time soon. In an interview with ESPN 710′s Max Kellerman earlier today, Jackson said that he thinks the Boston Celtics will win the…

  23. Lil’ Wayne smacks LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Jan 19, 2011, 2:12 PM EDT

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

    Rapper Lil’ Wayne is one of the handful of those lucky Americans who can afford courtside NBA seats — thank you very much “Lollipop.” But when you’re paying for those seats, say to see the Miami Heat take on the New Orleans Hornets, you expect a little respect. Especially when everyone else was smacking LeBron…

  24. Bosh out; LeBron and Wade likely in for Heat Tuesday

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:04 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is out for the Miami Heat Tuesday night against the Hawks, the result of a sprained ankle suffered against the Bulls. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are officially game time decisions, neither took part in shootaround, but according to a tweet from our own Ira Winderman (of the Sun Sentinel) both are expected…

  25. Thibodeau defends Asik’s play

    Jan 17, 2011, 6:25 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    After Chris Bosh got injured in a collision with Chicago Bulls forward Omer Asik during Saturday’s game, he was critical of Asik after the game for diving after a loose ball that was close to Bosh’s legs. Asik didn’t come all that close to the ball, but he did end up making contact with Bosh’s…
