  1. Whatever Adam Silver does it will not be enough for some, but his hands are somewhat tied

    Apr 28, 2014, 10:15 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers NBA basketball team owner Donald Sterling attends the Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills

    A lot of people want a big punishment for Sterling, but the league constitution limits what commissioner Adam Silver can do.

    Apr 14, 2014, 2:14 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    Official word could come very soon

  7. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Spurs set the bar while Pacers fall like a rock

    Apr 7, 2014, 3:13 PM EST

    Greg Popovich

    The Spurs have solidified themselves atop the NBA — if your team is going to win an NBA title they need to clear that bar because the Spurs aren’t coming back to the pack.

  8. PBT Power Rankings: Spurs running away at top, but a new team in cellar

    Mar 31, 2014, 1:00 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    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.…

  9. Tuesday NBA grades: Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant in a duel

    Mar 26, 2014, 2:53 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while breaking down the science of the three point shot… Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks. It wasn’t perfect — he had 6 turnovers and shot 2-of-8 from three. But when they needed him vintage Dirk Nowitzki showed up for Dallas scoring 7 of his team-high 32…

  10. PBT Power Rankings: Streaking Spurs on top, streaking Sixers on bottom

    Mar 24, 2014, 1:41 PM EST

    Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker

    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?

  11. 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.

  12. The Extra Pass: Talking “Summer Dreams” with producer of Summer League documentary

    Mar 14, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Wizards Warriors Basketball

    I’m a big fan of the NFL/HBO series “Hard Knocks,” which each year follows a team through training camp and the drama of season-ending injuries and the cut downs — guys are playing for their livelihood and there is inherent drama in that. It’s great television. But thanks to guaranteed contracts you can’t do the…

  13. Arron Afflalo hits a three to beat the halftime buzzer (VIDEO)

    Mar 9, 2014, 9:30 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo

    Tim Duncan probably regrets forcing that pass.

  14. Glen Davis says there’s a ‘supernatural belief’ surrounding the Clippers

    Mar 8, 2014, 9:30 PM EST

    glen davis clippers

    Glen Davis has only been a member of the Clippers for four games, but he’s already sensing something special about his new team. Davis was bought out by the Magic and signed with Los Angeles less than two weeks ago, but played for Doc Rivers in Boston during his first four NBA seasons. He was…

  15. Is Carmelo Anthony’s smart play to opt in and play out contract with Knicks?

    Mar 7, 2014, 5:46 PM EST

    New York Knicks vs Miami Heat

    According to every reliable source, Carmelo Anthony is going to opt out of the final year of his contract this season and look either to re-sign a five-year deal with the Knicks or move on to another team to be part of a contender. If Anthony wants to jump ship and go somewhere like oft-mentioned…

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Pharrell Williams loves the Arby’s hat… • Roy Hibbert got a new…

  17. Report: Joe Dumars, frustrated with criticism, expected to be out as Pistons’ general manager

    Mar 5, 2014, 11:07 AM EST

    Joe Dumars

    Joe Dumars might not be replaced by Isiah Thomas, but it still seems unlikely Dumars will return next season as the Detroit Pistons’ general manager. Dumars is in the final season of his contract. Ownership superseded him to fire his chosen head coach. And he didn’t make a move at the trade deadline. All signs…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. Sunday night NBA grades: Tony Parker is back and looks good

    Mar 3, 2014, 2:12 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking “I really should see that movie”…. Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs. In case you forgot, he’s really good at basketball. He wasn’t really getting going in transition yet, but he was dominant in the half court, scoring 10 of the first 17 Spurs…

  21. PBT Podcast: Your twitter questions get us talking Clippers’ moves, Knicks’ future

    Mar 1, 2014, 12:30 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Clippers

    We’re back with the latest PBT Podcast and today you set the topics — myself and  Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio discuss your twitter questions. First up we discuss the Clippers moves at the buyout deadline — I think getting Glen Davis is huge, Danny Granger on the other hand is not better than Jared…

  22. It’s official: Danny Granger is a member of the Los Angeles Clippers

    Feb 28, 2014, 6:31 PM EST

    Portland Trailblazers v Indiana Pacers

    Doc Rivers realized earlier this season that this Clippers roster was not going to be enough to contend in the West. Now during buyout season he’s gone and added some talent. Glen Davis as the third big will be the most important addition — he’s solid and that makes him a massive upgrade over Ryan…

  23. The Extra Pass: Is the second tier in West ready to challenge Thunder, Spurs?

    Feb 28, 2014, 8:51 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    We know Oklahoma City is a contender — despite their little three-game blip as they re-adjust to Russell Westbrook in the lineup, they are still 21-7 when Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook both play this season, they have a top-10 offense and defense when you look at points per possession. The same is true of…

  24. Reports: Danny Granger will sign with Clippers when he clears waivers Friday

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:27 AM EST

    Danny Granger

    Doc Rivers has been looking for some help at the three — Jared Dudley has not panned out as hoped and Matt Barnes is solid as a reserve but not the guy who starts on a contender. Rivers even tried Hedo Turkoglu in that role. Now Danny Granger is going to get a chance. Granger,…
