    You can vote — and not just if you’re a Republican in Iowa. The NBA opened All-Star Game voting to the fans on Wednesday, so you can pick who will not play any defense in Orlando Feb. 26. Fan voting picks the starters, the coaches for the teams help pick the rest of the squad.…

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    What you missed while worried about what a bad year this was for elephants… Oklahoma City 98, Memphis 95: This playoff rematch was our game of the night.

    Lou Williams Jumper

    From Williams’ twitter account (by way of Larry Brown Sports and Ball Don’t Lie): Almost got robbed today.. But homie said he recognized me and the good I’ve done for his hood so that made him change his mind… WOW After the game Williams detailed the incident, saying he took the man to a local…

  4. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks fall, Heat race into top spot

    Dec 26, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Only one third of the teams in the NBA have played a game, but it was enough to move some teams around and give us a new No. 1. 1. Heat (1-0, last week ranked No. 2). They had 100 possessions in their opening game, nine more than they averaged last season. If they do…

    Brook Lopez had successful surgery Friday to fix the stress fracture in his fifth metatarsal (the long bone above the little toe) in his foot, the team announced. What really matters to them is they expect him back in six to eight weeks, in mid to late February. Which is before the March 15 trading…

  7. The Sixers and a question of patience on the path to greatness

    Dec 18, 2011, 7:53 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Star power is an abject must in this league, from any angle. It’s not just about the fact that this is a player-driven league or that “good players are good.” It’s that they drive ticket sales and those players are essential to winning a title. Detroit is the only real team in the last… long,…

  8. Report: Lakers to find salvation in Troy Murphy

    Dec 17, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Troy Murphy

    The Lakers have had a downright disastrous offseason, and it only lasted a week. Jerry Buss was in the hospital. A trade for Chris Paul was blocked by the league. The fallout resulted in Lamar Odom being traded to Dallas for essentially nothing. They spent money on Jason Kapono. Kobe Bryant‘s wife is divorcing him.…

    Dec 15, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    kobe-lakers-preview

    Last season: 57-25, second seed in the Western Conference playoffs. The trip to the postseason was shorter than usual for the then-back-to-back defending champs, as they were unceremoniously swept out of the second round by the eventual champion Mavericks. Head Coach: Mike Brown takes the helm in his first season with the Lakers after Phil…

    Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday

    Last season: 41-41, resulting in a competitively uncompetitive first-round loss to the Miami Heat. Head Coach: Doug Collins, who still wants to be your friend. Need a ride to the airport, Thaddeus? He’s your guy. Need someone to help you move, Elton? Please, you don’t even have to ask. Dog-sitting? His pleasure! Creating a stable…

    The Lakers are already a little thin along the front line after sending out Lamar Odom — although getting Josh McRoberts was a nice pickup — and this is not going to help matters. Second year player Derrick Caracter has torn the meniscus on his left knee and is set to undergo surgery on Wednesday…

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. Steve Kerr absolutely rips Dan Gilbert. And he’s right.

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. Don’t be shocked if the Chicago Bulls try to get in the Dwight Howard mix, but it is a longshot. If you read on thing today it should be this: Lakers trainer Gary Vitti…

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least.

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  19. Report: Dwight Howard giving Orlando chance to improve

    Dec 8, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Any reports that leak out of these intense meetings like the Orlando Magic had with Dwight Howard Monday need to be taken with a grain of salt. Or a handful. That said, the report out of Hoopsworld about where Dwight Howard stands with the Magic makes some sense. First, because it notes he is not…

  20. Reports: Lakers reach deal to sign Jason Kapono

    Dec 7, 2011, 8:10 PM EDT

    Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout

    Two years ago the Lakers needed better outside shooting. They brought in Steve Blake, but that didn’t work. In new coach Mike Brown’s twin-towers offense (with Kobe drawing doubles in the post as well) the Lakers will need much better long-range shooting. So they have reached a handshake deal to sign Jason Kapono, according to…

  24. New suggested Sixers mascots are… um… unimpressive

    Dec 6, 2011, 1:44 AM EDT

    Sixers_Mascot_Choices

    I don’t think there were many ideas that would make Sixers fans long for the return of Hip Hop. If you forgot, Hip Hop was the Sixers mascot that nobody really liked. So much so that after polling season ticket holders about the game-day experience the new Philadelphia owners axed him. But they commissioned new…

    CNBC’s sports business expert Darren Rovell gives a great synopsis of the NBA’s labor deal and how it effects players and player movement.
