  1. Pau Gasol still trying to find his place in D’Antoni’s offense

    Nov 30, 2012, 12:07 PM EST

    BASKET-US-LAKERS-PACERS

    Pau Gasol is a unique talent in the NBA — he has the most polished, skilled post moves in the league with the ability to score with both hands going either direction, he also has a steady midrange game, and is a great passer if you want to have guys cutting off him while you…

  2. Andrew Bynum in nasty lawsuit with California neighbors

    Nov 29, 2012, 12:45 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Nothing brings out the best in people like disputes with neighbors. And by “best” I mean most petty, childish, scuzzy behavior possible. For seven years Andrew Bynum has owned a home in Westchester, an area of Los Angeles not too far from the Lakers practice facility (the Lakers traded him to Philadelphia last summer), and…

  3. Wednesday And-1 links: Who has the better Eurostep, Wade or Ginobili?

    Nov 28, 2012, 6:21 PM EST

    Marvin Williams, Paul Millsap, Manu Ginobili

    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 like Texans love barbecue. • Who has the better Eurostep move, Dwyane Wade or…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Sixers get win despite Vince Carter heroics

    Nov 28, 2012, 4:30 AM EST

    Dorell Wright, Shawn Marion

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching a Christmas lights show timed out to “Gangnam Style”… Pacers 79, Lakers 77: Sometimes you watch a game and think neither team deserves to win it. That was this game. It was ugly. But despite 40 from Kobe Bryant…

  5. Mavericks’ Carlisle frustrated enough with Collison to start Dominique Jones

    Nov 27, 2012, 7:25 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle has been frustrated with point guard Darren Collison this season — just the other day Carlisle ripped Collison’s defense. Offensively Collison’s overall numbers are pretty average for a starter — 12.9 points on 43.6 percent shooting, a PER right at the league average 15. That said, Collison is getting 30 percent…

  6. Tuesday And-1 links: Dwight Howard not that influential. Apparently.

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Memphis hangs on but Spurs, Heat charging

    Nov 26, 2012, 2:25 PM EST

    Lionel Hollins, Jerryd Bayless, Mike Conley

    If you ask me who was the best team in the NBA was last week, well, it was Denver. But they are fully capable of a winless week now, so we leave Memphis in the top spot this week. And Washington is still trying to find a win and a way out of the cellar…

  9. Luol Deng says Joakim Noah is best center in East

    Nov 26, 2012, 12:54 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    Who is the best center in the Eastern Conference right now? It’s moot now, but if this was the old NBA All-Star ballot and you had to vote for a center, who would it be. We can rule out Andrew Bynum indefinitely. How about Al Horford in Atlanta, not a classic center but has played…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics, Spurs need OT for wins

    Nov 26, 2012, 5:26 AM EST

    Manu Ginobili; DeMar DeRozan;

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while out buying a $4.2 million gold Christmas tree… Spurs 111, Raptors 106 (2OT): Now this is a close game — at the end of every quarter and the first overtime this was a one-point or tied game. Toronto needs to…

  11. Three Stars of the Night: All guard edition

    Nov 26, 2012, 12:05 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday stretches past Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett in Game 6

    Sunday’s slate of games was fairly uninspiring, with no marquee matchups to speak of; even the two games that went into overtime and double overtime ended up being won by the team that was expected to do so. But the players that shined the brightest might say otherwise, and the ones we’ve chosen as our…

  12. Andrew Bynum out indefinitely, no timeline to join Sixers

    Nov 24, 2012, 8:34 PM EST

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    Philadelphia rolled the dice this summer on making Andrew Bynum their future — they traded Andre Iguodala for him. They sold the fans on how they could build around him. It’s far too early to say it came up snake eyes, but at the very least this is not going to be an easy point…

  13. Pau Gasol benched in latest Lakers loss, wants more touches in the post

    Nov 24, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike D'Antoni

    The Lakers have lost two straight after winning their first with Mike D’Antoni in place on the sidelines, and in both of those games, the frontcourt combination of Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol was completely shut down. The home win over Brooklyn was solid, but the loss in Sacramento was embarrassing, and the loss in…

  14. Five early season NBA trends to be thankful for

    Nov 22, 2012, 4:29 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Shane Battier

    We are 10 games or so into the NBA season and one thing is clear — this is fun. Not everything is fitting neatly into the preseason prediction boxes and that is the best part of being a sports fan. We at PBT are thankful for a lot of things. All of you who read…

  15. Andrew Bynum speculation reaches new, ridiculous heights of stupidity

    Nov 21, 2012, 3:23 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    This shouldn’t even be a story. But we’re here discussing it because with Andrew Bynum nothing seems impossible, not even him needing another knee surgery and missing the rest of the season. And that combined with a doctor giving his opinion on a case where he has absolutely no direct knowledge of what is happening…

  16. Video: Nick Young’s ridiculous three. That falls, of course.

    Nov 21, 2012, 7:59 AM EST

    Nick Young was in fully Swaggy P mode Tuesday night, so that even when he takes a three pointer that would embarrass Kobe Bryant it goes in. Young was up against the shot clock here, still this shot had no right to go in. But it was that kind of night for Young.

  17. Three Stars of the Night: Kobe, ‘Melo and Swaggy P

    Nov 21, 2012, 1:39 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    Only three games tonight, so how about we give the three stars to the key players from each of the three winning teams. Sounds good to me. Third Star: Kobe Bryant (25 points, 5 assists, +20) Kobe Bryant has spent almost his entire career in Phil Jackson’s triangle, the only times outside it were in…

  18. Nick Young brings the swagger, the points, the Philly win

    Nov 21, 2012, 12:01 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers' Young celebrates with teammates Richardson and Holiday while playing against the Toronto Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    Nick Young brought the full Swagy P to this game. Young can be maddening. His swagger, his confidence can lead to bad decisions. The kind of shots Kobe regrets taking Young doesn’t fear. For example, in the first quarter against the Raptors Tuesday night Young was in the right corner when he got a high…

  19. Former teammate says no one likes basketball less than Andrew Bynum

    Nov 20, 2012, 3:33 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum hair

    Things haven’t been going well for Andrew Bynum since joining the Sixers. He has yet to make his debut for the team thanks to a bone bruise in his knee, and his timetable to return seems to be getting continually pushed back. And then there was the bowling. When star athletes struggle like this in…

  20. Cavaliers Kyrie Irving out for month with fractured finger

    Nov 19, 2012, 8:15 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    Take my word for it as someone who watches an inordinate amount of NBA League Pass, there was only two reasons to tune in to Cleveland Cavaliers games — Kyrie Irving and whoever they were playing against. Now the Cavaliers will be without Irving — he has a hairline fracture on his left index finger…

  21. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot goes walking in Memphis

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:23 PM EST

    Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant

    Memphis has moved into the top spot in the poll this week, but notice the top three are teams we kind of expected to be on the second or third tier in the NBA this season. The question remains can they keep it up. Oh, and at the other end the Wizards still suck. 1.…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston falls and fails in Detroit

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:34 AM EST

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rando look on from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while watching the Andrew Bynum bowling gif over and over. Lakers 119, Rockets 108: Two straight games with big point totals for the Lakers — 114 last game, 119 this one — and two wins. And that’s with Mike D’Antoni not even…

  23. Three stars of the Night: Kobe, Durant and a defensive gem

    Nov 19, 2012, 1:18 AM EST

    Kevin Durant

    Seeing names like Kobe and Durant on the three stars of the night can get a bit routine, even when they are both putting up a triple double. But we have a first at the three stars — someone making it because of their defensive efforts. And it’s well deserved. Honorable mention to DeMarcus Cousins…

  24. Andrew Bynum confirms he had knee setback due to bowling

    Nov 18, 2012, 5:26 PM EST

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    Well, at least he owned up to it instead of coming up with some lame excuse. That’s something. Andrew Bynum confirmed to the media Sunday he thinks his latest setback in recovery from a knee injury happened when he went bowling. Ugh. From the twitter account of John Finger of CSNPhilly.com. Bynum says he thinks…

  25. Report: Sixers think Bynum’s knee setback due to bowling

    Nov 18, 2012, 12:44 AM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    There is no denying Andrew Bynum’s talent, no denying how good he can be on the court when focused. He’s an All-Star for a reason. But the Lakers were willing to consider trading him in part because they had concerns about his maturity and about that focus. Which brings us to this report from Brian…
