    Thaddeus Young

    Monday night was an easy win for the Sixers — they raced out to a 22-6 lead and really the rest of the game was pretty sloppy and ugly — but it came with a price for Philly: They lost Thaddeus Young to a hamstring injury. You can see what happened in the video above…

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

    Let’s get this out of the way first — this is not a setback. I know people can get skittish when you talk Andrew Bynum and knees, but things are still on track. This was planned, it was the next step in the process and the timeline for Bynum to finally make his debut with…

    The dynamic around Andrew Bynum’s return to the 76ers has changed. Before it was something to watch as Philly brass thought about what kind of contract to offer him this summer. But with the injury to Rajon Rondo and the Sixers just 2.5 games back heading into Monday night, a playoff spot seems possible again.…

    Tony Parker

    You know the consistently good Spurs are going to climb into the top spot a couple times during the season. The top four remain the same but we see some teams fall farther down the list while teams like the Wizards and Hornets climb. 1. Spurs (36-11, last week ranked No. 2). They have won…

  9. So who gets Rajon Rondo’s All-Star slot?

    Jan 28, 2013, 8:29 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    Don’t we all just love it when David Stern and the league office get to put their fingerprints all over the All-Star Game? But with Rajon Rondo now out with a torn ACL in his right knee, it falls to Stern to make changes to the East roster for the Feb. 17 game in Houston.…

    Kenneth Faried

    That would be “Manimal.” Also known as Kenneth Faried. A whirlwind of energy and an absolute beast on the boards. One of the hardest working players in the NBA.

    Philadelphia 76ers guard Holiday shoots past the defense of the New York Knicks Chandler during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    Jrue Holiday was one of five Eastern Conference players named as an All-Star reserve on Thursday who will be making their first career appearance in the NBA’s midseason exhibition. Someone should have told him he already earned the honor. Holiday exploded for a career-high 35 points, to go along with five rebounds and six assists…

  12. Boston’s offense is problem, fixes may have to come from within

    Jan 25, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Rajon Rondo

    Boston is two games below .500 and it’s become evident this isn’t a problem isn’t gong away easily. Boston’s offense is 21st in the NBA scoring just one point per possession (100 per 100 possessions, via Hoopdata, well below the league average of 102.7). Thing is, that’s slightly better than the 98.7 the Celtics averaged…

  13. 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…

    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.

    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.…

  21. 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…

    Jan 19, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    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…

  25. 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…
