  1. Stephen Curry heads list of NBA All-Star Game snubs

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry, sorry. It sucks. Every year there are a couple of guys right on the bubble, guys you can argue should have made the NBA All-Star Game as reserves voted in by the coaches, but didn’t make the cut. (If you have a problem with the starters, blame yourself — the fans vote those…

    Jan 24, 2013, 7:39 PM EDT

    East All-Star Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat (L)  battles West All-Star Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder

    The 2013 NBA All-Star reserves were announced Thursday, and while there will always be a few players who fans will argue should have made it, it’s tough to disagree with the ones the coaches selected. In the Western Conference, Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden were the guards selected, and big men Tim Duncan,…

    Jan 23, 2013, 10:20 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    We told you how the rumor mill had started — Dwight Howard trade talk is heating up everywhere. Except with the Lakers. They are not interested at all. Yet. The Lakers brought in Dwight Howard to be the latest in the long line of great centers to play for the organization and keeping him long…

    Brooklyn Nets' Johnson shoots three-point shot over New York Knicks' Smith and Kidd in NBA game in New York

    Some guys put up big numbers on Monday — Philly’s Evan Turner (18 points, 12 boards, 7 assists), Carmelo Anthony (29 points), Nene (24 points, 9 rebounds), DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 13 rebounds) — and maybe none better than Nicolas Batum’s triple-double (12 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds). But none of them make the cut.…

  9. Brandon Jennings doesn’t like his All-Star chances

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    PHOENIX — Brandon Jennings, and to a lesser extent, Monta Ellis, are on the bubble in terms of potential players who could be named to the All-Star team as a reserve. We discussed this on the podcast this week — once you get past Kyrie Irving, there really aren’t any locks to make the team…

  10. Jrue Holiday with the layup to send Sixers to overtime against Raptors (VIDEO)

    Jan 19, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    Jrue Holiday is doing his best to remind coaches that he deserves a spot on the Eastern Conference All-Star team this season. Holiday finished with a career-high tying 33 points, to go along with 14 assists while scoring all 12 of his team’s overtime points to lead the Sixers to a 108-101 win over the…

  11. These guys should be the NBA All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 17, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook drives by San Antonio Spurs' Parker during the second half of Game 6 of the NBA Western Conference basketball finals in Oklahoma City

    The fans have done their job — you all picked the NBA All-Star Game starters. And well done. While I could quibble with a choice I might have made differently, there are no egregious errors (read: Jeremy Lin is not a starter). Now it falls to the coaches to pick the seven reserves for each…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the offensive outbursts

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking about what a jump to hyperspace in the Millennium Falcon would really be like… Lakers 104, Bucks 88: Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard each had 31 points, but the real key for Los Angles was their defense — Kobe was on…

  13. Deron Williams doesn’t think he deserves to be All-Star

    Jan 15, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Just a couple years ago Deron Williams was an All-Star automatic — if the fans didn’t vote him in, the coaches would. And should have. In 2010 he averaged 18.7 points and 10.5 assists per game with a PER of 20.6. He got mentioned next to Chris Paul in the “best point guard in the…

  14. Nuggets’ Mozgov thinks he could be traded by deadline

    Jan 15, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Timofey Mozgov is out of George Karl’s rotation in Denver. He has played in just two of the team’s last five games and in the two he played he got a total of 14 minutes. Combine that with him being in the last year of his contract and Mozgov being 7’1” and you have the…

  15. Don’t look for Sixers to make moves at trade deadline

    Jan 14, 2013, 8:53 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76er Bynum walks past a teammate before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Toronto Raptors in Philadelphia

    Philadelphia general manager Tony DiLeo doesn’t know really what cards he’s been dealt. Last summer he made a bold move — he shipped out Andre Iguodala and rebuilt the team around Andrew Bynum. There are not many athletic, true centers in the league and Philly landed itself one. Bynum averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds…

  16. Andrew Bynum walks out on court, takes shots. Standing still, but it’s a start. (VIDEO)

    Jan 14, 2013, 3:26 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Only with Andrew Bynum in Philadelphia would a guy walking out on the court and taking a couple stand-still jumpers, working up a couple of beads of sweat, merit a celebration. But Bynum was the guy Philly was excited to see play this summer, the real center they went and traded Andre Iguodala for (in…

  17. James Harden goes behind the back and through the legs before getting the bucket against the Sixers (VIDEO)

    Jan 13, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Detroit Pistons

    The Rockets couldn’t beat the Sixers in Philadelphia on Saturday, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying on the part of James Harden. Harden finished with 29 points on 10-19 shooting, to go along with nine rebounds and six assists. But none of his baskets were as pretty as this one that he converted…

  20. Report: Sixers explored trade for Thunder’s Eric Maynor

    Jan 8, 2013, 8:59 AM EDT

    Eric Maynor

    The one position you would think the Philadelphia 76ers are set is point guard — Jrue Holiday has taken a huge step forward and is a borderline All-Star this season. But Philly apparently was looking for some depth there, tweets John Mitchell of the Philadelphia Inquirer. According to a source with the knowledge of the…

  21. Andrew Bynum says he is progressing, running is “coming soon” (VIDEO)

    Jan 7, 2013, 6:58 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    I know you all couldn’t wait for another Andrew Bynum update that is pretty much a non-update, so finally here it is. Bynum said that soon he could start doing some running, taking stand-still shots on the court and other steps toward recovery. The video is above, but for those of you who prefer the…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, but it’s close

    Jan 7, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Atlanta Hawks

    To be honest, you could have ranked the top three in this week’s PBT NBA Power Rankings and been fine. I’m giving the top spot to the Thunder this week because I think they’d beat the Clippers or Spurs in a seven game series right now. But not easily. 1. Thunder (26-7, Last week ranked…

    Philadelphia 76ers v Dallas Mavericks

    We’ve already seen some, and in the next 24 hours your are going to see a lot more moves of guys who have barely gotten any run — then you are going to start to see 10-day contract guys fill their place on the bench. The deal is that by today at 5 p.m. (Eastern),…

  24. J.R. Smith believes an All-Star spot is within reach

    Jan 5, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    J.R. Smith has been lauded for his play in New York this season, coming off the bench to provide a solid scoring punch at 16.6 points per game, while giving the team an active defensive presence on the perimeter. Smith’s name, along with that of the Clippers’ Jamal Crawford, has been widely mentioned when discussing…

    Jan 3, 2013, 4:01 PM EDT

    APTOPIX NBA All Star Basketball

    Apparently, you folks have no concern whatsoever for Charles Barkley’s feelings. The day after Barkley said Dwight Howard and Kevin Garnett have not played well enough to be part of the All-Star starters, they are both in. Howard solidly, he’s a lock, and Garnett has stretched out his lead over Chris Bosh. Basically, nothing has…
