The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while hating on the idea of Monopoly “house rules”…. Indiana Pacers. It wasn’t pretty, but what mattered was the fight in the team. And the win over Miami, but more than that the fight it took from them to get there. Indiana had been slogging through the season,…

Ryan Anderson has been out of the Pelicans’ lineup since January 3 due to a herniated disc in his neck, an injury suffered in a game against the Celtics.

San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

Rondo tries to take the blame for Boston’s overtime loss to the Pelicans. But he wasn’t the one guarding Anthony Davis.

He’s insanely good. And he’s just 21.

The 2012 draft already looks like it will go down as one of the NBA’s stronger ones ever. Andre Drummond is incredibly promising. Damian Lillard won Rookie of the Year and is even better this season. But there’s no doubt, if the draft were re-done, Anthony Davis would remain the No. 1 pick. Days like…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching the King of the Hill/True Detective mashup… Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors.

In ESPN’s Fab Five documentary, Jalen Rose discussed how he felt about Duke while playing at Michigan. Rose: I hated Duke, and I hated everything I felt Duke stood for.

Sixers mum on if it’ll come to pass.

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…
