  1. Tuesday And-1 links: We talk LeBron’s steak house eating habits

    Feb 21, 2012, 11:23 AM EDT

    Heats' James looks around after an opponent's free throw went through the basket during their game against the Magic in Miami

    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). When he dines out at a fine steak house, LeBron James apparently likes apple martinis, his steak well done and he wants it cut up…

  2. Kenyon Martin talks about George Karl talking too much

    Feb 19, 2012, 8:59 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    For seven years, Kenyon Martin was a Nugget. For six of those, George Karl was his coach — and those were some pretty good Nuggets teams. But you don’t have to like someone to work with them. Martin and Karl are not on each other’s Christmas card list. Karl has remarked multiple times about how…

  3. Heat keep blasting their way through the NBA; today’s victim: Orlando

    Feb 19, 2012, 7:36 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    The season series is tied. The Magic controlled the first game, won it handily, the final score not reflective of how well they played. So why does the Heat’s 90-78 win over the Orlando, a 12-point margin, same as the Magic’s in the first game, feel so much more important, so much more reflective of…

  4. LeBron has a new PR handler

    Feb 19, 2012, 2:04 PM EDT

    Sweat rolls down the face of Miami Heat's James during a break in play against Milwaukee Bucks in their NBA game in Milwaukee

    LeBron James is loathed by many, still. His negative PR is lessening as people begin to move on with their lives, but after last year,it was clear that James had struggled with how to handle his public perception. He took a bad situation, lit it on fire, and then dropped it off a cliff into…

  5. LeBron James says he has not reached out to Dan Gilbert

    Feb 18, 2012, 6:24 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Remember when our Blogger-in-Chief Kurt Helin was like: LeBron is going to be a member of the Heat for years. He can’t predict what will be happening in his life and the NBA five years from now no more than you or me or anyone else can. So he tried to leave a door open.…

  6. LeBron happy in Miami, was “truthful” about Cleveland

    Feb 17, 2012, 1:44 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    The day after LeBron James offered an olive branch to Cleveland and opened the door a little on his possible return to play for the Cavaliers someday, you knew there would be a day of follow up questions. Because it’s LeBron and Cleveland and perspective goes out the window when those two things meet. LeBron…

  7. Jeremy Lin added to Rising Stars All-Star Weekend game

    Feb 16, 2012, 8:29 PM EDT

    Knicks guard Lin smiles during player introductions before the start of the Knicks' NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Minneapolis

    How about Jeremy Lin throwing ally-oops to Blake Griffin? You got it. Thanks to a late add by the NBA and some drafting prowess by Shaquille O’Neal, Lin and Griffin will be playing together the Friday night of All-Star weekend at the Rising Stars Challenge (formerly the Rookie/Sophomore Game). Lin was not on the original…

  8. Winderman: LeBron says NBA becoming point guards’ league

    Feb 16, 2012, 6:54 PM EDT

    derrick Rose LeBron James

    So what does LeBron James want? By now we’ve learned that simply is a matter of interpretation, other than he doesn’t want to be blamed for your kids’ cartoons not being on or the store being out of milk (from that memorable postgame session in Orlando a week ago). Then, Thursday, there were the seemingly…

  9. LeBron says he would consider return to Cavaliers. Someday.

    Feb 16, 2012, 2:45 PM EDT

    LeBron James Cavaliers

    LeBron James, peacemaker with Cleveland. Not that the wounds there can ever be fully healed, but he’s trying. He extended an olive branch Thursday, again saying he handled leaving poorly and he would someday consider returning. At least he’s trying to say all the right things. The Heat are in Cleveland to take on the…

  10. Shumpert, Williams headline All-Star Dunk Contest field

    Feb 16, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    Blake Griffin will not be back to defend his All-Star Dunk Contest crown, and you can bet no Kia cars will be on the court this time. He wasn’t the only big name to stay away — all the stars are staying home. There are some quality dunkers in the field but all the names…

  11. NBA announces All-Star Three-Point Shootout lineup

    Feb 15, 2012, 5:24 PM EDT

    anthony morrow

    The NBA has just announced the lineup for this year’s 3-point shooting contest at All-Star Weekend in Orlando. It is part of the Saturday night events Feb. 25 (along with the Dunk Contest and the tedious Skills Contest). Here are your contestants: James Jones: The defending champion. Jones has seen his minutes go way down this…

  12. Wednesday And-1 links: Jeremy Lin notes… and other stuff

    Feb 15, 2012, 11:11 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin; Anthony Carter

    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). Great stuff on why Jeremy Lin and Carmelo Anthony will work out from Bethlehem Shoals at GQ. Mike D’Antoni talks Linsanity, and blending Carmelo Anthony…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami gets third win in three nights

    Feb 15, 2012, 8:09 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    What you missed while watching the Chipotle ad that was the best thing during the Grammys… Knicks 90, Raptors 87: What else can you say? The legend of Lin just keeps on growing. This was our game of the night. Heat 105, Pacers 90: Miami was playing their third game in three nights, Indiana had…

  14. Tuesday And-1 links: Zach Randolph is back at practice

    Feb 14, 2012, 11:44 AM EDT

    zach-randolph-game-6

    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). Zach Randolph has been cleared by doctors for non-contact practices and is expected to return to the Grizzlies in early March. That would be huge…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas can still close out games

    Feb 14, 2012, 7:35 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    What you missed while wondering why a man would try to rob a store wearing only chocolate and peanut butter… Mavericks 96, Clippers 92: What do you need to do to win in tight fourth quarters in the NBA? Execute. For example, don’t turn the ball over — the Clippers has seven fourth quarter turnovers.…

  16. Hawks Josh Smith ticked about All-Star Game snub

    Feb 13, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Josh Smith of the Atlanta  Hawks walks off the court against the Chicago Bulls during the second half of Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Josh Smith should have been an All-Star. He has stepped up his play with Al Horford out and is giving the Hawks 15.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.1 blocks per game, and the Hawks are your four seed in the East at 18-10. Hard to look the other way. But the reserve All-Star…

  17. LeBron, heckler reportedly had words in Washington

    Feb 13, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    LeBron James’ talent may have moved to South Beach, but he still fills the arenas. However, the sound he hears in those arenas is a lot different than he heard a few years ago. Then he was the wunderkind carrying the Cavaliers on his back, now he is the villain leader of the Heat. He…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami crushes faith in Atlanta

    Feb 13, 2012, 2:10 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    What you missed while wondering what the heck Nicki Minaj was doing at the Grammys…. Celtics 95, Bulls 91: No Derrick Rose but the Bulls made a late rally and a game of it, in our game of the day. Lakers 94, Raptors 92: The Lakers are still a disorganized mess at the end of…

  19. Miami’s big three tell John Wall to work hard, stay positive

    Feb 11, 2012, 10:04 PM EDT

    John Wall, Wizards, Heat

    There was a time when LeBron James was trying to figure out how to get the Cleveland Cavaliers into the playoffs, when Chis Bosh was not near enough to get Toronto over .500, when Dwyane Wade was trying to figure out how to fit is game into the NBA. Basically, a time when those three…

  20. Mike Brown compares, Kobe, LeBron: It’s about the rings

    Feb 11, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    Mike Brown is different from the last Lakers coach in a lot of ways. For example, when you ask him a direct question he’ll answer it. Even if he probably shouldn’t wade into those waters. For example, the whole “Kobe or LeBron” debate. Brown talked about it to CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger and talked about it…

  21. Video: Dwyane Wade with the ally-oop to LeBron

    Feb 10, 2012, 9:39 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Your Comcast announcer is correct — being the lone defender back on a 2-on-1 break and seeing it is LeBron James and Dwyane Wade is about as bad as it gets.

  22. Wizards would like an actual home-court advantage

    Feb 10, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    John Wall, Trevor Booker, JaVale McGee

    There are about 30 NBA towns where MVP chants for Kobe Bryant have rung out. Pretty much the same for LeBron James and Derrick Rose. But it’s been different for the Washington Wizards — their home games have sounded more like road games at times. Combine the fact that the Wizards are not a real…

  23. Winderman: The fuzzy line of NBA talk, tampering

    Feb 10, 2012, 1:11 PM EDT

    APTOPIX NBA All Star Basketball

    Sorry, just not sure how this works anymore, when it comes to what is tampering what is innocent conversation, and, frankly what is NBA protocol and civility. Perhaps because Kobe Bryant and LeBron James aren’t impending free agents, it’s all simply viewed as innocuous. So Larry Bird, in his role as Pacers president, talks freely…

  24. Kevin Love says he will compete in three-point contest

    Feb 10, 2012, 9:40 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves' Love high-fives fans after defeating San Antonio Spurs in their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    Kevin Love is an All-Star, selected by the coaches as a reserve. He earned it and there was no suspense about whether he would make it. But Love has other plans for All-Star Weekend, too, tweets Jerry Zgoda of the Star-Tribune. Love says he also will compete in three-point shooting contest at All Star Game….…

  25. Your NBA All-Star reserves announced, coaches went safe

    Feb 9, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The fans picked the five starters, but this week the coaches voted to name the reserves to the All-Star Game in Orlando. And the coaches played it safe. They went with the old names they new not the future stars. They went with veteran Joe Johnson and left out Rajon Rondo. They left out Paul…
