  1. Tuesday And-1 links: Zach Randolph is back at practice

    Feb 14, 2012, 11:44 AM EDT

    zach-randolph-game-6

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Zach Randolph has been cleared by doctors for non-contact practices and is expected to return to the Grizzlies in early March. That would be huge…

  2. Video: Talking “Linsanity” with Amar’e, ‘Melo and Lin

    Feb 14, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin is congratulated by teammates Jordan and Fields after win against Timberwolves in Minneapolis

    Tonight Linsanity — AKA the New York Knicks — goes north of the border to Toronto. Amar’e Stoudemire will be back in the starting lineup and he talks about liking what he sees. Of course he does, he’s got a PG who can run the pick-and-roll again. We told you already Carmelo Anthony is happy…

  3. There’s a lot of money to be made off Jeremy Lin

    Feb 14, 2012, 8:50 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    The NBA is a business. First and foremost. If you ever forget that, think back to early November when we should have had the start of the NBA season and instead had lawyers in suits hammering out a labor agreement. Jeremy Lin is the kind of player, the kind of story that can make you…

  4. Boxer Floyd Mayweather says Lin hype about race

    Feb 13, 2012, 11:39 PM EDT

    Floyd Mayweather

    Floyd Mayweather rarely holds his tongue. Or shy away from racist remarks. Just ask Manny Pacquiao. (Not that it has got them together for a fight.) So maybe we shouldn’t be shocked when Mayweather tweeted today: “Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian. Black players do what he…

  5. Carmelo says playing with Lin will be “dream come true”

    Feb 13, 2012, 7:08 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    Reportedly, it was Carmelo Anthony — in street clothes due to a pulled groin — going to Mike D’Antoni at halftime of the Knicks game against New Jersey and suggesting to play Jeremy Lin more that kicked off “Linsanity.” Monday, the guy who came to New York to see himself on the back pages of…

  6. “Linsanity” came when Lin stopped trying to play for others

    Feb 13, 2012, 5:23 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin shakes hands with MInnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love before game

    Just go out and play. Let God and the universe take care of the rest of it. That is the battle Jeremy Lin says he fights daily now — not trying to live up to the expectations of others, not trying to control everything, but just going out and playing basketball. Lin — a devoutly…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs advancing, Heat still on top

    Feb 13, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    I’m beginning to wonder: Will the Eastern Conference Finals be the real NBA finals this year? Feels that way some days. 1. Heat (21-7, last week ranked 1) The Magic and Knicks combined to shoot 85 threes against the Heat in two nights. The Heat’s defensive energy does that to teams, makes them settle (although…

  8. Video: The rise of Jeremy Lin

    Feb 13, 2012, 2:41 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Because you can’t get enough Jeremy Lin…. Great video looking back at his rapid rise from obscurity to the king of New York basketball, a guy who crosses John Wall and puts up 38 on the Lakers. Hat tip to SLAM.

  9. Stoudemire, ‘Melo return and things change for Jeremy Lin

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:49 PM EDT

    Knicks guard Lin smiles during player introductions before the start of the Knicks' NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Minneapolis

    It is the sentence I never expected to type and nobody ever expected to read: Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony are about to be back in the Knicks lineup, but how do they blend them in? It should be a no brainer fitting the Knicks two best players back in with their new point guard…

  10. Why the bottleneck on NBA trades? Calendar and Howard.

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    We’re a couple months into the NBA season, and there have been very few trades. Before the season we had some biggies — Chris Paul to the Lakers, er, Clippers — but once the season started, that has dried up. And you can expect things to stay pretty much dry past the All-Star game at…

  11. Monday And-1 links: The (largely) Jeremy Lin edition

    Feb 13, 2012, 11:25 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin is congratulated by teammates Jordan and Fields after win against Timberwolves in Minneapolis

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). The picture you have been waiting to see — the couch in Landry Field’s place where Jeremy Lin slept. The real question: Why all the…

  12. Ben Wallace to set NBA record for most games by undrafted player

    Feb 13, 2012, 10:55 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Clippers

    Sorry Jeremy Lin, but Ben Wallace is about to become the NBA’s new king of the overlooked players. When  entered the game for the Pistons late in the first quarter Sunday against Washington it was his 1,054 game, tying him with Avery Johnson for the most games ever played by an undrafted player since the…

  13. Video: “Nick of Time,” the latest Jeremy Lin tribute song

    Feb 13, 2012, 10:26 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    Well, it’s better than half the stuff on the Grammys last night. (Which is the very definition of damning with faint praise.) Jeremy Lin is inspiring “Lin-sanity” all through New York, and that is including the city’s musicians. There was already “Lining,” which was worse than just about everything on the Grammys, but was the…

  14. Jeremy Lin comes back to earth, but inspires Knicks win

    Feb 12, 2012, 1:11 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio, Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks would not have won this game two weeks ago. And that is the true measure Linsanity — it is not just the points and assists that Jeremy Lin brings anymore, it’s about the energy and fight he has brought out of this roster. Two weeks ago the Knicks would have rolled over and…

  15. Spike Lee texts Mark Jackson “thanks” for cutting Jeremy Lin

    Feb 11, 2012, 7:58 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Linsanity cannot be stopped in New York… well, until Carmelo Anthony comes back and takes the ball out of Jeremy Lin’s hands. But we’re not going to worry about that yet. The legend of Lin grew Friday night when he dropped 38 on the Lakers and led the Knicks to their fourth straight win while…

  16. Video: Chris Paul drains game winner in Philly

    Feb 11, 2012, 11:59 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is good. Ridiculously good. Andre Iguodala played about as good of defense as you can on Chris Paul on the final play in Philadelphia last night, and Paul twisted, turned then faded away and drained the game winner for the Clippers like a cold-blooded assassin. There should be no debate about who is…

  17. Video: All he does is Lin

    Feb 11, 2012, 9:54 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    The Lakers were going to be the first real test, the first good defense Jeremy Lin had to face. Well, 38 points and 7 assists later, he’s made a statement.

  18. Kobe Bryant not down with “Linsanity.” Not yet anyway.

    Feb 10, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If you are going to impress Kobe Bryant, you’re going to have to do a lot more than have three good games in February. A lot more. Jeremy Lin is a sensation, “Linsanity” is sweeping New York as Kobe Bryant and the Lakers come to town Friday night. Two weeks ago the Knicks looked lost,…

  19. Warriors, Rockets feel regret about letting Jeremy Lin go

    Feb 10, 2012, 9:02 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Golden State had Jeremy Lin for a full season last year, but decided he just wasn’t going to work for them. Monta Ellis handles the ball a lot, Stephen Curry is the starter at the point and Golden State went another direction with his backup. The Rockets had Lin earlier this season, but they also…

  20. Kevin McHale (briefly) blames Rockets’ record for Kyle Lowry’s All-Star snub

    Feb 9, 2012, 8:48 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v New Orleans Hornets

    The reserves for the 2012 NBA All-Star game were announced on Thursday, and in Phoenix, where the Rockets were in town to face the Suns, the results were of particular interest. Both teams had players who were deserving on some level in Steve Nash and Kyle Lowry, but while Nash was selected, Lowry missed the…

  21. Your NBA All-Star reserves announced, coaches went safe

    Feb 9, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The fans picked the five starters, but this week the coaches voted to name the reserves to the All-Star Game in Orlando. And the coaches played it safe. They went with the old names they new not the future stars. They went with veteran Joe Johnson and left out Rajon Rondo. They left out Paul…

  22. Jeremy Lin says Tim Tebow has been an inspiration to him

    Feb 9, 2012, 4:41 PM EDT

    Divisional Playoffs - Denver Broncos v New England Patriots

    There are some similarities to the Jeremy Lin and Tim Tebow stories — and not just that they both throw bounce passes. Both had built in followings but were not expected by most experts to make much of an impact at the professional level. Both have. Both still have some people expecting them to fall…

  23. Jeremy Lin can move off his brother’s couch now… or not

    Feb 9, 2012, 4:06 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Jeremy Lin has been living the life of an NBA nomad — a guy who went to camp with Golden State, was cut and ended up with Houston for a while, but he never saw the court there (they have Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic at the point already) so he was released. Then he…

  24. Enjoying the Jeremy Lin ride, which may get bumpy

    Feb 9, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    We need to be honest — the three defenses that Jeremy Lin has carved up as the starting point guard for the Knicks are three terrible defenses. All three are in the bottom 10 in the league in defensive efficiency, and the best one (Utah) has slow bigs who are awful against quick guards —…

  25. Thursday And-1 links: Kevin Durant raps

    Feb 9, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Kevin Durant is laying down the lyrics — he is in a rap video with Privaledge and sounding pretty good. Normally we’d run the video,…
