    Dec 19, 2011, 3:29 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets

    B.J. Mullens is a guy who can’t get off the Thunder bench — he’s played in just 26 games over two years. He’s going to get his chance now — Mullens has been traded to the Charlotte Bobcats to help out their depleted frontcourt, reports the Oklahoman. The Bobcats are sending back a second-round pick.…

    Welcome to our inaugural power rankings for the 2011-12 NBA season (a regular Monday feature at PBT). These are fun if ultimately meaningless — in the NBA we have a playoff system to decide who is best (are you listening college football?). This is a preseason ranking, so remember that when you get mad about…

    Kevin Durant, Richard Jefferson

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT.

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    We thought things didn’t sound good, and they are not for the Celtics. Jeff Green — expected to be Boston’s sixth man — will miss the entire season after surgery to fix an aortic aneurysm, the Celtics announced on Saturday. The important thing is that Green is expected to make a full recovery. This can…

  5. Can the Dallas Mavericks repeat as NBA champions?

    Dec 16, 2011, 5:16 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    After a trying, decade-long run that consistently placed them along the title’s periphery, the Dallas Mavericks finally claimed their first ever NBA championship last June. The fact that Dirk and the Mavs are the reigning champs still seems like a hazy dream — a vision almost too similar to a storybook to be real, and an…

    Dec 15, 2011, 6:20 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    2010-11 record: 55-27 Head Coach: Scott Brooks, who his players really like. Significant Departures: Robert Vaden? Significant Additions: Reggie Jackson, a personal sleeper favorite in the draft at PBT. Best-Case Scenario: The slimmed-down Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka are one of the best defensive frontcourts in the league.  Russell Westbrook continues to be one of…

  8. Jeff Green re-signs with Boston for one-year, $9 million. Which is weird. And kind of genius.

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:51 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green was spoken of as part of the Celtics future, as the big building block to put beside Rajon Rondo. The acquisition of Green for Kendrick Perkins was highly controversial in Boston, made only worse by his performance last season and in the playoffs (though he had a few moments). Green was supposed to…

    COOK_DAEQUAN

    According to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, the Oklahoma City Thunder have signed 24-year old 3-point specialist Daequan Cook to a 2 year, $7.5 million extension.

  11. Reports: Lakers reach deal to sign Jason Kapono

    Dec 7, 2011, 8:10 PM EDT

    Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout

    Two years ago the Lakers needed better outside shooting. They brought in Steve Blake, but that didn’t work. In new coach Mike Brown’s twin-towers offense (with Kobe drawing doubles in the post as well) the Lakers will need much better long-range shooting. So they have reached a handshake deal to sign Jason Kapono, according to…

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo wants to be a Celtic. And he wants some clarity. That’s what his agent, Bill Duffy, told A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Duffy had a conversation with Celtics GM Danny Ainge Friday, and you can bet trade rumors that had Rondo being shopped for Chris Paul — something that is not going to…

    LeBron NFL commercial

    Last night Team LeBron James beat Team Kevin Durant in their flag football game. While the only score that mattered was zero torn ACL’s, it was LeBron’s team that won on the gridiron. That included him having a pick six where he went with the Stevie Johnson ‘Plaxico’ celebration. Which we bring you now. Next time…

  16. Danny Ainge: No plans to trade Rajon Rondo

    Dec 1, 2011, 2:20 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Okay Celtics fans, you can stop now with plans for your 10-team trade where the Celtics send out Rajon Rondo and get back Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard and Rudy Gay. Rajon Rondo is going to stay a Celtic, Danny Ainge said Thursday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. Danny Ainge says he has no plans…

    Dallas Mavericks v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Three

    You can add Nate Robinson to your list of free agents that fans love way more than GMs do. Not officially, yet. Officially and through Dec. 9 Robinson is a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder set to make $4.5 million next season. But the two sides are working on a buyout, tweets J. Michael…

    Nov 30, 2011, 2:08 PM EDT

    1211-GQ-FASU01.01

    Nothing goes together like fashion and dunks. Well… maybe chocolate and peanut butter, but that’s it. Which is why a new photo spread in the pages of GQ goes so well together. NBA players Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Andre Iguodala, JaVale McGee and Shannon Brown talk dunks and get their pictures taken dunking in suits.…

  21. Reports: Chris Paul won’t sign in Boston; Pacers talk to Celtics

    Nov 30, 2011, 11:23 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    There is a lot of smoke around the Chris Paul to the Celtics rumors, enough to make you think there is some fire. But that is a very, very different thing than saying this trade is going to happen. More likely it is not. Why? For one, take this tweet from Chris Broussard of ESPN.…

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The NBA player charity game season is coming to an end fast, but Baron Davis still had his in Los Angeles on Sunday night. And there were a lot of great passes from Davis and James Harden, but it always seemed to be DeMar DeRozan on the receiving end. He is all over these highlights.…

  24. New “Derrick Rose Rule” will make a few rookies rich(er)

    Nov 27, 2011, 11:03 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Players on their rookie deals remain one of the great values to owners — they get players who often can contribute a lot but at a fraction of the salary of a veteran who does the same thing. Those rookie deals remain untouched in the new collective bargaining agreement. Except for one change — if…

    Just like NBA fans, NBA players were shocked and excited early Saturday morning. (No, not like that. What is wrong with you people?)
