  1. Andrew Bynum says he has setback with knee, timetable unchanged

    Nov 16, 2012, 7:36 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Ugh. Watch the video above and you can see Andrew Bynum no longer has his hair straitened. That’s almost the biggest news. He also talks about a setback with his knee rehab. Which is scarier than his hair for Sixers fans. Well, probably scarier. Earlier this week it was announced he would not return to…

  2. Raptors GM Colangelo talks about not drafting Andre Drummond

    Nov 16, 2012, 6:39 PM EST

    Andre Drummond

    How much does raw talent versus personality and concerns about work ethic when drafting someone? We all are great at looking back at a draft three or five years later and saying “how did we pass on player X” when at the time it’s not that simple. To use an easy example, any GM that…

  3. Report: 76ers near deal to buy Utah Flash as D-League affiliate

    Nov 16, 2012, 3:49 PM EST

    A number of NBA teams have been buying D-League franchises, turning them into more of a true minor league — it’s never going to be like baseball because only a guy or two at a time might benefit from D-League style seasoning. But it makes sense if you are building a team to have that…

  4. The Knicks are legit. If they can keep this up is another question.

    Nov 16, 2012, 1:25 PM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The Knicks are 6-0, the last undefeated team in the NBA — and it’s not a fluke. They are defending better than anyone in the league, giving up just 93.6 points per 100 possessions, via Hoopdata. (Anyone who says they just started defending this year wasn’t watching last year.) Their offense with Carmelo Anthony at…

  5. Three Stars of the Night: Two Knicks’ guards… and LeBron.

    Nov 16, 2012, 2:48 AM EST

    Jason Kidd, Raymond Felton

    We should just name one of these stars after LeBron at this point. Aside that, the story of the night was the Knicks dramatic comeback win, so the two guards that led that charge are getting stars tonight. Third Star: Jason Kidd (14 points, 4-of-6 from three) His line isn’t that impressive, but it’s really…

  6. Three Stars of the Night: Three huge games, one huge hairdo

    Nov 15, 2012, 2:00 AM EST

    Andrew Bynum hair

    There were some fantastic performances on the court Wednesday night, but if you want to know what people were buzzing about on twitter it was that photo to the right — Andrew Bynum’s hair. Which I can’t describe, but it’s buzz worthy. I think the face of the guy to Bynum’s left really says it…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s all about the Boston offense

    Nov 13, 2012, 8:40 AM EST

    Brandon Bass, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Jason Terry

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while being scared by the idea of a Hillary Clinton decorating show…. Jazz 140, Raptors 133 (3OT): Utah got its first road win but the Raptors made them really work for it — they needed the second three of Al Jefferson’s…

  8. Bynum says not practicing until December not a setback, he’s on schedule

    Nov 12, 2012, 8:57 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

    So, apparently he was just on a much, much slower schedule than anyone realized. Andrew Bynum is not going to able to practice with the Sixers until around Dec. 10, and it will be a couple of weeks after that before he is back on the court. So we’re talking maybe Christmas. But he says…

  9. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:12 PM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  10. Andrew Bynum could be out until around Christmas

    Nov 12, 2012, 12:06 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    It’s a pattern that just feels all too familiar for him — the timetable for Andrew Bynum’s debut with the 76ers has been pushed back as he recovers from knee issues. After a fresh MRI, the Philadelphia 76ers announced Monday that Bynum would not be cleared to be involved with “normal basketball activity” — what…

  11. Sixers not providing updates on status of Andrew Bynum

    Nov 11, 2012, 6:01 PM EST

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    When the Sixers traded away Andre Iguodala in a deal that brought them All-Star center Andrew Bynum, they envisioned an improved team anchored by a big man that would be a foundation in Philadelphia for seasons to come. The future may still be a bright one for Bynum there, but he has yet to make…

  12. Firing Mike Brown not just the right decision, it was the only decision

    Nov 9, 2012, 5:18 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike Brown

    When the Lakers relieved head coach Mike Brown of his duties on Friday morning, legitimate questions about the timing of such a major decision were certain to arise. Why now? Isn’t the team overreacting a bit after just five games? The short answers are one, because it was clear that this was going to get…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs lose and we have a DeAndre Jordan sighting

    Nov 8, 2012, 7:34 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while you were watching the first episode of the new season of Top Chef and thinking you could make an omelet…. Jazz 95, Lakers 86: Well, that was about as ugly as the Lakers have looked this season. Utah’s front line…

  14. Obama spent part of election day playing hoops with Pippen

    Nov 6, 2012, 6:15 PM EST

    100316_obama_basketball_ap__regular

    You know how in college you woke up after about two hours of sleep before the 9 a.m. test you were cramming for most of the night before, and when you got out of bed you were kind of resigned to a “I’ve tried, whatever happens now happens” attitude. Sounds like Barack Obama is there…

  15. Jason Richardson says photographers don’t belong on the baseline after suffering ankle sprain

    Nov 6, 2012, 2:58 PM EST

    Jason Richardson

    Less than two minutes into the Sixers’ loss to the Knicks on Sunday, Jason Richardson stepped on a cameraman out of bounds along the baseline, and sprained his ankle in the process. The video clip above tells the story, and it was nothing out of the ordinary, really — the cameraman was where they always…

  16. Adventures in offense, featuring Nick Young

    Nov 6, 2012, 12:26 PM EST

    Ronnie Brew, Kurt Thomas, Nick Young

    Nick Young‘s detractors would say that he’s a gunner with a low basketball IQ who shoots without conscience, and without a regard for consequences. And if they watched even just the first quarter of the Sixers’ blowout loss to the Knicks on Monday, they would likely have sore necks this morning from nodding in agreement…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs, Knicks remain undefeated

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:42 AM EST

    Rasheed Wallace, Tyson Chandler

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while you were finding out where Superman’s home planet Krypton actually was…. Spurs 101, Pacers 79: Don’t look now, but the Spurs are defending again this year. Which is how they crushed the Pacers. We broke it down.…

  18. Dwight Howard doesn’t like center being taken off All-Star ballot

    Nov 5, 2012, 9:29 PM EST

    Dwight Howard All-Star

    When you get around to doing your NBA All-Star voting this year, it will be a little different — you will vote for two guards and three frontcourt players per conference. The NBA wisely decided to get rid of the center position on the ballot because it simply didn’t fit with today’s game — do…

  19. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EST

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  20. Doug Collins hopes to go Bagger Vance on Evan Turner

    Nov 5, 2012, 8:40 AM EST

    Doug Collins, Evan Turner

    Evan Turner needs something — he is averaging 5 points a game on 28.6 percent shooting so far this season. That is a slump… let’s hope it’s a slump. For Turner’s sake lets hope he can turn it around Sixers coach Doug Collins told CSNPhilly.con’s John Finger that he has an idea of how to…

  21. Knicks continue impressive start by taking care of Sixers

    Nov 4, 2012, 3:30 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Thaddeus Young

    A tip-off time of 12 noon in the NBA can often be trouble for both teams. It’s a quirk in the schedule for a league whose players are used to gearing up to perform at their peak sometime after 7:30 p.m., so the broken routine can result in some rough basketball during those early afternoon…

  22. Winderman: Trying to make sense of rookie contract extensions

    Nov 1, 2012, 2:56 PM EST

    Daryl Morey, James Harden

    On many levels it makes sense that the NBA’s deadline for rookie-scale extensions is Oct. 31. Because while there are many treats (for the players involved), there also can be more than a few tricks (down the road when it comes to teams’ salary caps and luxury taxes). James Harden? He deserved as much as…

  23. Jrue Holiday signs $41 million contract extension with Philly

    Nov 1, 2012, 9:24 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers Jrue Holiday and Thaddeus Young celebrate a win over the Denver Nuggets during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    The Philadelphia 76ers like the idea of a core built around Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner and Andrew Bynum. Now comes the time the have to start to pay to keep that core together. It starts with Holiday, who at the last minute before the Wednesday night deadline reached terms for then signed a four-year, $41…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Lakers defense sucks, too

    Nov 1, 2012, 4:13 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Jodie Meeks

    Our nightly recap of every gamegaround the NBA. It’s what you missed while buying dive bar T-shirts…. Trail Blazers 116, Lakers 106: In the season opener, Dallas scored at a 108.7 points per 100 possessions pace on the Lakers (for comparison, only five teams in the NBA averaged giving up more points per 100 last…

  25. Iguodala can’t go home again. Not and win, anyway, Philly beats Denver.

    Nov 1, 2012, 12:05 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers center Spencer Hawes blocks a shot by the Denver Nuggets Wilson Chandler during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    Andre Iguodala returned to Philly and got booed. Lustily. Then got a standing ovation after a tribute video. Then largely became irrelevant (he had 11 points) as it became the Spencer Hawes show. It was just that kind of anticlimactic game. I wouldn’t say Philly won this game as much they were less ugly —…
