  1. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  2. Lakers handling of Phil Jackson, coaching search a jumbled mess

    Nov 12, 2012, 9:06 AM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    You can make a good case why not to hire Phil Jackson as the Lakers coach right now — maybe he wanted too much money, or he wanted too much control over the roster, or the triangle offense was not a good mid-season replacement for the Lakers (it is too hard to pick up on…

  3. Bradley Beal’s flagrant foul on Monta Ellis downgraded

    Nov 11, 2012, 4:15 PM EDT

    Bradley Beal, Monta Ellis, Brandon Jennings, Trevor Booker

    Bradley Beal was part of the Wizards duo (along with Trevor Booker) that committed a hard foul on Monta Ellis late in Friday’s game against the Bucks. The contest had already been decided in Milwaukee’s favor, which is what made the contact look so bad at the time. Milwaukee’s Brandon Jennings took exception to the…

  4. Lakers meet with Phil Jackson, job is his if he wants it

    Nov 10, 2012, 7:06 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson answers questions at a post-game news conference following Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final basketball playoff against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas

    The Lakers and Phil Jackson sat down on Saturday to discuss the team’s head coaching vacancy, according to multiple reports. While no job offer was made at the conclusion of the talks, the understanding is that the job is Jackson’s to have if he decides he wants it. There are plenty of other wrinkles and…

  5. Brandon Jennings, Bradley Beal ejected late in Bucks’ win over Wizards (VIDEO)

    Nov 10, 2012, 5:45 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Anthony Davis and Byron Mullens weren’t the only ones mixing it up on Friday, but this altercation from the Bucks’ win over the Wizards was a little more serious. With the clock running down under 24 seconds, and the Bucks holding a nine-point lead that essentially had the game already in the win column for…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  7. Byron Scott says clock started late, Jennings’ game-winner should not have counted

    Nov 4, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    We showed you the game-winner from Brandon Jennings, an incredible launch from the top of the three-point arc with 0.7 seconds left to beat the Cavaliers as time expired. Cleveland’s head coach, Byron Scott, was less excited about Jennings’ heroics than the rest of us. He told reporters afterward that the clock started late, so…

  8. Brandon Jennings beats the Cavs at the buzzer (VIDEO)

    Nov 4, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    There was no contract extension for Brandon Jennings by the Oct. 31 deadline, for a variety of reasons. Two games into the season, it seems like Jennings has every intention of making Milwaukee pay, quite literally, for that decision. In Friday’s win over the Celtics, Jennings notched a career high in both assists (13) and…

  9. Bucks Mbah a Moute to miss at least two more weeks

    Nov 2, 2012, 4:20 PM EDT

    Mbah a Moute

    The Milwaukee Bucks miss Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. They want him back, the healthy Mbah a Moute from a couple seasons ago. The one that is near the top of wing defenders in the league. The one that does the little things on offense, cutting baseline off the ball while the defense is still focused…

  10. Report: Brandon Jennings unlikely to receive contract extension

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:51 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    With Wednesday night’s deadline to extend rookie contracts rapidly approaching, go ahead and count Brandon Jennings among the players who will become restricted free agents when the season ends. From Charles F. Gardner of the Journal Sentinel: Brandon Jennings is not expected to receive a contract extension from the Bucks before Wednesday night’s deadline. Discussions…

  11. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  12. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  13. NBA Season Preview: Houston Rockets

    Oct 25, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Kevin McHale, Jeremy Lin

    Last Season: Riding a deep roster and the creativity of a coaching staff and front office to cover up their weaknesses with in-season trades, the Rockets were in the playoff hunt into the season’s final days only to fall short and finish 9th in the West. They battled injury, illness, and the transition to new…

  14. Five players that need a change of scenery

    Oct 23, 2012, 9:41 PM EDT

    Kevin Martin

    Breakups are never fun, but sometimes it just has to be done. Maybe there’s someone new, or things have become stale, or both parties just need to go a different direction. The following is a list of five talented players who could really use the “it’s not you, it’s me” speech from their current teams.…

  16. NBA season preview: Golden State Warriors

    Oct 18, 2012, 5:36 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, David Lee, Andrew Bogut

    Last Season: The Warriors hope that last season was one where the decisions the franchise made put the team in position to compete for years to come — starting now. First year head coach Mark Jackson didn’t have much to work with, and Stephen Curry‘s ankle problems that allowed him to play only 26 games…

  17. Bucks rookie John Henson out two weeks with knee sprain

    Oct 17, 2012, 5:56 PM EDT

    John Henson

    It’s a little early to have to deal with a rash of injuries, but that’s where the Milwaukee Bucks are at. That starts with first-round draft choice John Henson, who it looks like will be out two weeks, which is right when the season starts. Here is the official report from the Bucks: John Henson…

  18. Odds on NBA MVP (yes, LeBron leads), Rookie of Year

    Oct 17, 2012, 2:23 PM EDT

    James of the U.S. hugs teammate Durant after their game against Lithuania at their men's preliminary round Group A basketball match at the Basketball Arena during the London 2012 Olympic Games

    If you don’t have LeBron James, Kevin Durant on top of your “most likely to win the MVP” list you’re doing it wrong. Professional odds makers don’t do it wrong. So when the guys at offshore book Bovada put together a list, you know who is at the top. But the real value is farther…

  19. Report: Sixers talking contract extension with Jrue Holiday

    Oct 8, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday stretches past Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett in Game 6

    Philadelphia knows who it wants to be its core guys going forward — Andrew Bynum in the paint, Evan Turner on the wing, and Jrue Holiday at the point. Of course, that means keeping some guys under contract, like Andrew Bynum getting a new deal after this season. And then there is Jrue Holliday who…

  20. A question of point guard extensions starring Ty Lawson, Brandon Jennings, and Jrue Holiday

    Oct 6, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Ty Lawson

    October brings with it a rush of NBA news. Training camp starts, teams begin assessing if they need to make a pre-season trade, injuries unfortunately occur, preseason games begin and everyone is in the “best shape of their careers” on teams “ready to compete for a championship.” October is Hopetober for the NBA and outside…

  21. Brandon Jennings wants to steal some moves from Nash

    Oct 5, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Brandon Jennings waits to enter the game against Toronto Raptors in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Everyone steals moves in the NBA the way novelists openly admit they steal techniques and ideas from other writers. The key — if you’re going to steal, steal from the best. Which is what Brandon Jennings has been doing this past summer. In an effort to boost his field goal percentage — a career best…

  22. Gooden says guys who draw charges will pay flopping fines

    Oct 5, 2012, 1:12 AM EDT

    Paul George, Drew Gooden

    Mark Cuban doesn’t love it. Neither does Blake Griffin. And Dirk Nowitzki. While a lot of players have said they like the NBA’s new policy of fines for flops and hope that it starts to curtail the embellishment of contact in the NBA, not everyone does. There are concerns about enforcement, about unintended consequences, about…

  25. The Inbounds: Ellis and Jennings and the cliff of compromise

    Sep 26, 2012, 5:57 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Something’s gotta give in Milwaukee. (Check out our Bucks season preview here.) The Bucks traded their often-injured-but-still-awesome-when-he-played center Andrew Bogut last season to Golden State and took on Monta Ellis. Ellis was a promising young star. Then he was the guy who got injured in the moped accident. Then he was a terrific player again.…
