  2. Nate Robinson plans to exercise player option with Nuggets

    Mar 6, 2014, 11:33 AM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    The Nuggets got a pretty good bargain signing Nate Robinson to the bi-annual exception. But in exchange for paying Robinson such a low salary, they had to give him a player option for the second season of his two-year contract. That way Robinson wasn’t stuck being underpaid if he had a strong year, and he…

  3. Thursday night NBA grades: Wizards/Raptors have one game worth watching

    Feb 28, 2014, 3:05 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reminding yourself not to make love to a pizza…. Marcin Gortat, Washington Wizards. That is why Washington needed Marcin Gorat. It may have taken John Wall a while to realize it — there were some rough patches at the start — but Gortat has…

  4. Nate Robinson goes big in new Taco Bell commercial (VIDEO)

    Feb 26, 2014, 3:40 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    Following the latest move by Kevin Love, Nate Robinson has made a run for the border. Robinson is the latest NBA personality to appear in a Taco Bell commercial. It’s a pretty clever idea — undersized Nate Robinson achieving big in every aspect of his life from childhood on. Adding to the cute factor: Robinson’s son,…

    Feb 20, 2014, 5:41 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee hasn’t played since the sixth game of the NBA season due to a stress fracture in his left leg and it has showed on the defensive end for Denver — opposing centers are shooting 50.6 percent against the Nuggets and teams are averaging 45.2 points a game in the paint against them, 26th…

  6. Andre Miller possibly returning to Nuggets? Reports conflict

    Feb 16, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson, Andre Miller, Brian Shaw

    The Nuggets need a point guard. Ty Lawson has been out with a broke rib. Nate Robinson had season-ending surgery. And Andre Miller was sent home. Trying to plug along without those three, the Nuggets have, predictably, fared poorly. Their season net rating, according to nbawowy, is –1.5. Without any of those three point guards,…

  7. Blake Griffin leaves door open for Slam Dunk Contest return

    Feb 13, 2014, 7:15 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Ten of the 13 Slam Dunk Contest champions since Vince Carter have defended their title the following year. One exception was Nate Robinson, who bowed out after winning back-to-back Dunk Contests for for his second and third titles in the event. Another was Fred Jones, who was injured. The third? Blake Griffin. Griffin won the…

  8. Ty Lawson, who couldn’t sit up straight for days, expected to be out ‘a little while’

    Feb 11, 2014, 12:00 PM EDT

    Mark Ayotte, Ty Lawson

    Before the season, it seemed the Nuggets had a surplus of point guards: Ty Lawson, Andre Miller and Nate Robinson. But Miller was sent home. Robinson had season-ending surgery. And now Lawson is hurt. Lawson, the Nuggets’ top player, broke a rib in a loss to the Pistons on Saturday. He missed Monday’s loss to…

  9. Wall, Lillard, George headline new look All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:55 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    If all of us — red state, blue state, regardless of religion or skin color — could come together and agree on just two things they would be: 1) Kevin Durant’s new puppy is really cute. 2) The NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest needed some life injected into it. The NBA has heard you on…

  10. Report: JaVale McGee nowhere near return, could be out rest of season

    Feb 6, 2014, 12:38 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    The Denver Nuggets have struggled up front this season — opposing centers are shooting 50.6 percent against the Nuggets and teams are averaging 44.9 points a game in the paint against them, 25th in the NBA. A big part of the reason for that is JaVale McGee has only played five games for them this…

  11. Nuggets won’t reach out to Andre Miller, even after season-ending injury to Nate Robinson

    Feb 3, 2014, 10:44 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    The Nuggets lost Nate Robinson for the season after he underwent surgery to repair an ACL injury on Friday, but even that apparently isn’t enough for the team to attempt to reconcile with Andre Miller. Miller is a veteran point guard who clashed with first-year head coach Brian Shaw over playing time, and served a…

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play.

    SUPER BOWL XLVIII DENVER BRONCOS VS. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

    NBA players spent their Sunday afternoon the way you did — watching the Super Bowl with their friends, families and co-workers. They just tended to do it in much larger houses. Here is the reaction from around twitter, starting with Seattle native and Seahawks fan Nate Robinson. https://twitter.com/nate_robinson/status/430164922714959873 https://twitter.com/nate_robinson/status/430172840550084610 Caption with that picture: “I’m just…

    Jan 31, 2014, 10:31 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    Ugh. Another exciting player to watch down for the season.

  15. Denver’s Nate Robinson has sprained ACL, could miss some time

    Jan 30, 2014, 4:15 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    Nate Robinson had started for the Nuggets on Wednesday with Ty Lawson out, but he only played six minutes against the Bobcats when he seemed to tweak his knee, but then he jogged back to the locker room under his own power so it didn’t seem like much to worry about. But he didn’t return…

  16. Nate Robinson previews Super Bowl using pineapple in snow-covered parking lot

    Jan 29, 2014, 1:29 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    Nate Robinson, unabashed Seattle fan living and playing in Denver, was in a grocery store buying a pineapple and that became him on Instagram predicting what the Super Bowl will look like by throwing around the old pineapple skin in the snowy parking lot of said grocery store. I couldn’t have made that up if…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Durant powers Thunder to top slot

    Jan 27, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    No Russell Westbrook yet Kevin Durant has pushed the Thunder to the top of the West and the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Still strange to see the Celtics and Lakers near the bottom of the poll, but it’s where they belong this season.   1. Thunder (35-10, LW 4). Kevin Durant is making…

  18. Steven Adams exactly the player, personality Oklahoma City Thunder need him to be

    Jan 27, 2014, 2:57 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    BOSTON – Steven Adams arrived at Notre Dame Prep, as his first American coach put it, “with a guitar and a knapsack.” Ryan Hurd, who coaches the Massachusetts basketball powerhouse, knew his team needed a center, and the highly touted Adams certainly was one. Otherwise, Hurd didn’t know what to expect from Adams, a mid-year…

  19. Denver’s Nate Robinson remains a huge Seahawks fan

    Jan 27, 2014, 12:23 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    Nate Robinson is all about the 206. The Seattle native will hype his native city every chance he gets. He is a huge fan of all things Seattle — the Huskies (where he went to college), the Mariners, the Sounders… And the Seahawks. Who happen to be playing the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl…

  20. Nuggets have no answer for LaMarcus Aldridge, fall to Trail Blazers

    Jan 24, 2014, 4:22 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    This is how a coaching adjustment can change a game. In the first half, Ty Lawson was getting into the lane and carving up the Trail Blazers — he had 13 points, nine assists and led Denver to 67 first half points. Portland was getting its offense from LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 14 points in…

  21. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

  22. Dwight Howard declines invitation to participate in dunk contest

    Jan 16, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    dwight howard dunk contest

    Before Dwight Howard alienated fans with the ugly way he exited the Orlando Magic, followed by a severely disappointing stint with the Los Angeles Lakers, he was one of the game’s most popular players, and his participation in All-Star weekend’s slam dunk contest was the primary reason why. Howard pulled off the sticker dunk in…

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

    larry sanders

    In the second quarter of the Bucks’ loss to the Thunder on Saturday, Larry Sanders took himself out of the game. He delivered a couple of elbows above the neck to OKC’s Steven Adams, and the refs saw that activity and ruled it a flagrant foul. After video review, they determined it was a flagrant…
