  1. D-League to start calling technical for flopping in game, see if that works

    Feb 19, 2014, 1:25 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Paul Pierce, flop

    The D-League is where the NBA likes to try out rule changes first to see how they work. For example, this season the D-League uses quicker timeouts and is using the international goaltending rule (once the ball hits the rim it is live and can be knocked off). Now the D-League is going to try…

  2. LeBron, Kobe lead Forbes top 10 list of NBA endorsers

    Lebron James,Kobe Bryant,  Andre Iguodala

    Forbes released its top 10 list of off-the-court NBA earners this week, and not surprisingly, a couple of the game’s biggest stars lead the pack. Before we get to the complete list, something stands out when looking at the dollars the top NBA athletes rake in, especially when compared to other sports’ stars. Thanks to…

  3. Tuesday night NBA grades: LeBron had no All-Star weekend hangover

    Heat Mavericks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while listening to Sir David Attenborough narrate curling for the BBC as if it were Planet Earth…. LeBron James, Miami Heat. A lot of us — players and some of the media (myself included, damn Sazerac) — have been fighting off a post New Orleans…

  4. Clippers’ J.J. Redick out indefinitely with bulging disc in back, other injuries

    Feb 18, 2014, 9:08 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    UPDATE: 9:08 pm: The Clippers have made it official, saying J.J. Redick is out “indefinitely with a bulging disc in his lower back.” While he certainly has a variety of injuries, it is the back that is the most serious. They still expect to have him back for the playoffs. 7:45 pm: This is pretty…

  5. Mohawk to no-hawk: “Birdman Chris Andersen shaves his head

    Feb 18, 2014, 8:54 PM EDT

    via @IraHeatBeat

    Yes Birdman's Mohawk is no more. "Less maintenance," he said. http://t.co/FG7RV7Dbes— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) February 18, 2014 This is going to take a little getting used to. I am the last person on the planet that should be commenting on someone’s hair, but I am going to pass this along — Miami’s Chris Andersen has…

    Celebrities Attend The 63rd NBA All-Star Game 2014

    LeBron James has dodged the free agency questions this season, refusing to broach the topic when asked. He’s more artful about it than the season before he left Cleveland, but he has avoided the topic. Until an interview on NBA TV that ran Monday night. In an interview with Steve Smith (the same one that…

  7. The Extra Pass: Clearing out my All-Star notebook, including fixing the dunk contest

    2014 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Four days in New Orleans left me about 20 pounds heavier (at least it feels that way, time to mix in a salad) and with a notebook full of thoughts and tidbits that didn’t find their way into other posts. So, here is a notebook dump. • Paul George said after the All-Star Game Frank…

  8. All-Star 2014: The Standouts

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:40 AM EDT

    NBA-All-Star-Game-2014-starters

    First, the obvious: The NBA All-Star Game is different from a normal basketball game. Apathy often reigns supreme, especially on defense, in this yearly exhibition, and there’s a premium on flashy play instead of solid, efficient basketball. For some players, it’s a dream format, while it’s less than ideal for others. In short, how a…

  9. Kyrie Irving wins MVP of 2014 NBA All-Star game

    NBA All-Star Game 2014

    NEW ORLEANS – At halftime of what was a record-setting 2014 NBA All-Star game, Kyrie Irving wasn’t on anyone’s radar as far as the game’s MVP award was concerned. By the time it was finished, he was the obvious choice. Irving finished with 31 points, five rebounds and 14 assists, and was the catalyst for…

  10. Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony shoot East to win in highest scoring NBA All-Star Game ever

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:18 AM EDT

    2014 NBA All-Star Game

    NEW ORLEANS — The NBA All-Star Game is never exactly a defensive showcase, it’s an exhibition. But this year’s version was an analytic lover’s dream: Three pointers and dunks. A lot of them. In the highest-scoring NBA All-Star Game ever, the East beat the West 163-155. This was the kind of showcase of athleticism the…

  11. LeBron’s monster windmill alley-oop dunk in All-Star Game (VIDEO)

    Feb 16, 2014, 9:18 PM EDT

    2014 NBA All-Star Game

    I’m not even sure what to call that dunk. Well, except for sick. LeBron James finished off an alley-oop with a windmill/hook shot dunk in the first quarter of Sunday’s All-Star Game, a play that woke up the crowd as LeBron raced out to 10 first quarter points. LeBron started that play by blocking an…

  12. Kevin Durant extremely tired of LeBron James comparisons

    Feb 16, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    Kevin Durant and LeBron James have pulled away from the field, setting up what could be a thrilling head-to-head finish down the stretch for Most Valuable Player. Durant is having the better season so far. There’s little question about that. With Russell Westbrook out, Durant has put the Thunder on his back, raising his game…

  13. Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert says he doesn’t regret “The Letter”

    Feb 16, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert, Mike Brown

    When LeBron James left Cleveland for Miami nearly four years ago, emotions were obviously running pretty high. A lot of things that probably shouldn’t have been said were said. Media, fans, LeBron — it wasn’t handled all that well by anyone. But let’s make one thing clear: no one handled himself as poorly as Cavs…

  14. Chris Bosh on winning Shooting Stars back-to-back: ‘That’s what champions do. We just find a way.’

    Feb 15, 2014, 10:18 PM EDT

    bosh shooting stars

    NEW ORLEANS – The Sears Shooting Stars event is obviously the lightest of appetizers to the more hearty All-Star Saturday Night courses of the Three-Point and Slam Dunk Contests. But the winning team has to make a half-court shot in a timely fashion to finish each of the event’s two rounds, and Chris Bosh hit…

    NEW ORLEANS – Adam Silver met with the media before the All-Star Saturday night festivities began, and addressed a wide variety of topics during his first official press conference as the NBA’s new commissioner. A polarizing point of conversation among fans has been the sleeved jerseys that debuted last season, and have seen increased exposure…

  16. Carmelo Anthony says that “without a doubt” he’d accept less money to help Knicks

    Feb 15, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    Carmelo Anthony has been making the rounds during All-Star weekend, and as you’d expect, the focus of the questions are primarily on his pending free agency decision. But to Anthony’s credit, he hasn’t shied away from it or been vague. Instead, he’s cleared the air on why he’s entering free agency, he’s stated what his…

  17. John Wall on LeBron: “I don’t think he is a big dunk contest person”

    Feb 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is stepping up his game. He admitted Friday when speaking to the media before the All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest that in games he holds back — his fear of missing and embarrassing himself makes him go the safe route rather than to show off. Saturday night he’s in the dunk contest and he…

  18. Barack Obama says LeBron James “has a chance to be as good as anybody”

    courtesy TNT

    While I find the LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan debate to get tedious quickly, that’s where we are with LeBron — we are watching him at his peak and wondering where he will rank all time when all is said and done. And when you compare someone with the all-time greats, Michael Jordan is the…

  19. Lakers GM says no regrets about Nash. What else is he going to say?

    Feb 14, 2014, 10:59 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    When Steve Nash played in his 10th game of the season this week — which took the medical retirement off the table, his $9.5 million will be paid by the Lakers one way or another now — there were a number of Lakers fans upset with that. They thought Nash was selfish for not putting…

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    All-Star weekend is upon us. While the rest of the PBT crew gets to eat beignets and earn beads for showing a little skin (that’s how that works, right?), some of us will be stuck at home watching the celebrity game and reevaluating our life choices. Not that I’m bitter or anything. Not at all.…

  21. LeBron James: Kevin Durant will feel title pressure ‘when I retire’

    Feb 13, 2014, 4:03 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder vs Miami Heat

    A statistical projection developed by John Hollinger pegs the Oklahoma City Thunder as this season’s most likely NBA champions. So does Kevin Pelton’s formula. The Thunder of have the the league’s best record (42-12_, best player (Kevin Durant) and arguably best No. 2 once he returns (Russell Westbrook). They’ve been to the Finals before and…

  22. Wade unsure if he can go in All-Star Game due to foot injury

    Feb 13, 2014, 10:45 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    For the 15th time this season, Dwyane Wade sat out a Heat game on Wednesday. That’s not really a surprise. A lot of those were to rest his knees, part of the Heat’s maintenance program, but on Wednesday night it was what he called a “bizarre” left foot injury. One that could keep him out…

  23. Jim Boeheim tells Carmelo Anthony to leave Knicks (basically)

    Feb 13, 2014, 10:00 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 12, 2014, 9:53 PM EDT

    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…
