  1. Bucks make it official, Larry Sanders out for the rest of the season

    larry sanders

    This was pretty much the only way Larry Sanders’ season was going to end. Poorly.

  2. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs, Clippers are your clear top two

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Derrick Favors

    The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

  3. Bobcats bench Gary Neal over ‘internal team matter’

    Mar 12, 2014, 9:02 PM EST

    gary neal bobcats

    The Bobcats are a playoff team in the East at the moment, but that position is relatively tenuous. Every game counts toward that goal, obviously, so willingly sitting down one of your rotation players has to have happened for a good reason. We don’t yet know exactly what that reason is, but we do know…

  4. Commissioner Adam Silver says what is happening in NBA is rebuilding, not tanking

    Mar 12, 2014, 7:03 PM EST

    adam silver

    Is there tanking going on in the NBA this season? Depends on how you want to define taking. However even if you define it broadly it’s not as bad as many seem to think it is. New NBA commissioner Adam Silver defines it more narrowly and says there is no tanking going on right now.…

  6. O.J. Mayo suspended one game for punching Pelicans’ Greg Stiemsma in the throat (VIDEO)

    Mar 8, 2014, 3:01 PM EST

    oj mayo

    O.J. Mayo has been suspended one game without pay for “forcibly striking” Greg Stiemsma in the throat during Friday night’s loss to the Pelicans, the league announced on Saturday via official release. This comes as no surprise, as Mayo’s teammate Ersan Ilyasova received a similar suspension for even less of an offense that occurred in…

  7. Bucks’ O.J. Mayo ejected for punching Pelicans’ Greg Stiemsma (VIDEO)

    o.j. mayo bucks

    It’s been a frustrating season in Milwaukee, and it’s gotten to the point where the team’s players are taking out those emotions violently against their opponents. Ersan Ilyasova received a suspension for the punch-shove combo he delivered to Reggie Evans, and we can expect the same punishment to be handed down to O.J. Mayo, who…

  8. Bucks’ Ersan Ilyasova suspended one game for punch to Kings’ Reggie Evans (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2014, 4:25 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    You can’t do that. Go ahead and argue that what Milwaukee’s Ersan Ilyasova really did was shove the Kings’ Reggie Evans if you want, you still can’t do that. The two were battling for rebounding position and after the play Ilyasova turned on Evans punch/shoved him and knocked him to the ground. I have checked the NBA…

  9. The one where Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn’t have cab fare so runs to Bucks game

    Mar 5, 2014, 5:55 PM EST

    2014 BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge

    When teams go into the NBA draft the question isn’t “who is the best player now?” it’s “who is the best player three years, five years from now?” The Bucks may have won that this draft with Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak has all sorts of raw talent and that leads to some amazing plays, but…

  10. Pat Riley says Caron Butler wanted a role that Heat couldn’t promise

    Mar 4, 2014, 7:09 PM EST

    Pat Riley

    It remains to be seen to a certain extent, but Caron Butler appears to be the one player made available during the NBA’s unofficial buyout season that has a true chance of impacting his new team’s playoff chances. That team is the Oklahoma City Thunder, who apparently had more to offer in their sales pitch…

  11. Giannis Antetokounmpo blocks shot, gets behind-the-back assist in transition

    Mar 4, 2014, 1:30 PM EST

    ANTETOKOUNMPO, MAHINMI

    Giannis Antetokounmpo ranks: Just below Raymond Felton and just above Mo Williams in PER Just below Andrea Bargnani and just above E’Twaun Moore in win shares Just below Toney Douglas and just above Luc Mbah a Moute in win shares per 48 minutes So, why does everyone go gaga over the Greek Freak? 1. He’s…

  12. Monday night NBA grades: Masked LeBron James is a bad mutha (Shut your mouth)

    Charlotte Bobcats vs Miami Heat

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Lionel Messi be Lionel Messi…. Masked LeBron James, Miami Heat. The rest of the teams may petition the NBA asking that LeBron not be allowed to wear any mask again. In the three games since coming back and wearing a mask he is…

  13. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  14. Giannis Antetokounmpo shows off some soccer skills, too (VIDEO)

    Mar 3, 2014, 1:59 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Indiana Pacers

    Giannis Antetokounmpo, is there anything he can’t do? The most exciting rookie in this year’s class — and maybe in a few years the best player in this class — swung by a Milwaukee Wave indoor soccer league game and turns out the Greek Freak has some soccer skills, too. He showed off a little…

  15. Report: Caron Butler to sign with Thunder, not Heat

    Feb 28, 2014, 11:04 AM EST

    Caron Butler, Nate Wolters, Markieff Morris

    Oklahoma City, looking for depth and a good spot up shooter to round out their roster for a playoff run, may have found one in veteran swingman Caron Butler. Despite early reports Butler was going to sign in Miami and backup Dwyane Wade (which means a lot of starts considering his knee maintenance plan), Butler…

  16. Report: Jimmer Fredette “strongly leaning” toward Bulls

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:05 PM EST

    Jimmer Fredette

    Jimmer Fredette can shoot the ball. The Chicago Bulls could use some guys to bring them points. It looks like the two sides will get together. Fredette was officially bought out by the Kings and waived on Thursday. When he clears waivers this weekend it looks like he is heading to the Windy City. First,…

  17. Report: Thunder join Heat as frontrunners to sign Caron Butler

    Feb 27, 2014, 1:58 PM EST

    Bucks Butler Basketball

    When word leaked out that Caron Butler and the Milwaukee Bucks were working on a buyout, it was almost instantaneous with reports he would land in Miami. There’s some logic to that — Butler played in Miami and was very popular in the locker room (Dwyane Wade is a fan) and in the community, plus…

  18. Report: Sacramento Kings to sign Royce White

    Feb 27, 2014, 11:41 AM EST

    Royce White

    It’s easy to forget now, but Royce White was the No. 16 pick in the 2012 NBA draft for a reason. He projected to have enormous upside thanks to his ball-handling and passing ability for his size, and he still had big-man skills to form the full package as a prospect. Before Giannis Antetokounmpo, there…

  19. Bucks buy out Caron Butler

    Feb 27, 2014, 9:21 AM EST

    Caron Butler, Nate Wolters, Markieff Morris

    All along, Caron Butler was expected to be waived by the Bucks and signed by the Heat. Step one is now complete, and step two remains quite possible, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: Caron Butler has reached a contract buyout agreement with the Milwaukee Bucks, league source tells Yahoo Sports. — Adrian Wojnarowski…

  20. Bucks to buy out Caron Butler, who is expected to then sign with Heat

    Feb 26, 2014, 10:14 AM EST

    Caron Butler

    Caron Butler was part of the trade that sent Eric Bledsoe to the Suns this past offseason, but he wasn’t in Phoenix for very long. He was dealt to Milwaukee in exchange for Ish Smith, a move that was expected to work for both sides, with Smith being an uptempo fit for Phoenix and with…

  21. Report: Bucks in buyout talks with Caron Butler

    Feb 25, 2014, 8:28 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks Media Day

    Apparently Thomas Wolfe was right, you can’t go home again. It was a great story to see Caron Butler going home to Wisconsin (he was born in Racine) to play for the Bucks to end his career. Except the Bucks season has turned into an unmitigated disaster and at this point a veteran like Butler…

  22. Report: If Granger bought out Spurs have interest, maybe not Heat

    Feb 25, 2014, 7:10 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    We are still waiting to see if the Philadelphia 76ers and Danny Granger are going to be able to come to a buyout agreement. While talks are ongoing, a few teams are circling like vultures just in case Granger is going to be a free agent. The timeline is March 1 — if the Sixers…

  23. O.J. Mayo ties his shoe during live action instead of playing defense (VIDEO)

    Feb 21, 2014, 9:31 AM EST

    O.J. Mayo

    O.J. Mayo is a talented offensive player, but there’s a reason he’s found himself on a different team in each of the last three seasons. Mayo makes some questionable decisions at times that tend to drive his head coaches mad — like this one in Thursday night’s 11-point home loss to the Nuggets. Some might…

  24. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  25. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…
