You put your money where your heart is, and your heart clearly follows LeBron James and the Heat.

Spurs close out the season on top, but can they beat the Thunder in a playoff series? Can the Thunder get through the gauntlet in front of them to get a showdown with the Spurs?

Rondo complements the way fans have supported the Celtics, but it hasn’t been a real factor in players choosing to sign in Boston.

Kyle Lowry received a warning from the league for this blatant flop he performed on Wednesday against the Sixers.

Rajon Rondo received a warning for his flop against the Hawks, which might have been the worst we’ve seen all season.
Apr 7, 2014, 3:13 PM EDT
The Spurs have solidified themselves atop the NBA — if your team is going to win an NBA title they need to clear that bar because the Spurs aren’t coming back to the pack.

Rajon Rondo was sidelined for a night, so he stepped into the broadcast booth and did a little color commentary. He was nice to everyone but didn’t give out any “Tommy points.”

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while telling your wife to be you want to spend $3,000 to live tweet your wedding… LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. Aldridge returns to the lineup and the struggling Blazers rattle off three straight wins. It’s not a coincidence. Aldridge finished with 28 points (10-of-20…

I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

Rajon Rondo is being held out of back-to-back contests by the Celtics this season, in order to be extra-cautious with the team’s franchise player who’s coming off of serious surgery, and playing in what is nothing more than a rebuilding year for the organization. That little wrinkle allows Rondo to be available for things he wouldn’t…

Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love work well together lifting Timberwolves past Mavericks. Also, Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks just keep on rolling.
Mar 18, 2014, 2:34 PM EDT
You can’t win titles in the NBA without elite talent. Superstars matter. It is the nature of the sport. However there is more to it than that, nobody ever just rolled the ball out and won a ring. Franchises have to put those stars in a system that benefits them but more importantly benefits the…

Rondo tries to take the blame for Boston’s overtime loss to the Pelicans. But he wasn’t the one guarding Anthony Davis.

Ultimately Thomas Wolfe will be proven right, you can’t go home again. Not even Phil Jackson. It’s easy to sit back and list the reasons Jackson’s return to the team that drafted him, taking over basketball operations of the New York Knicks, will not work: James Dolan; Jackson has never had any front office experience before;…

The Boston Celtics and Rajon Rondo have had better days behind them. In front of them too, they hope. Boston will miss the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons, and Rondo missed the All-Star Game for the first time in four years. To avoid repeating either outcome, Rondo must get fully healthy. That’s…

A career-high 42 points on just 18 shots. Not bad.
Mar 9, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT
Just like old times at Oak Hill Academy?
Mar 9, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT
But are the Knicks that patient?
Mar 7, 2014, 5:46 PM EDT
According to every reliable source, Carmelo Anthony is going to opt out of the final year of his contract this season and look either to re-sign a five-year deal with the Knicks or move on to another team to be part of a contender. If Anthony wants to jump ship and go somewhere like oft-mentioned…

Last season before his injury, Rajon Rondo shot 24 percent from three. The season before that 23.8 percent. Before that 23.3 percent. His career high season was 31.3. Until now — Rondo is taking more than twice as many as he has before and his hitting a very respectable 36.4 percent of them this season.…

Every player says it. Carmelo Anthony is saying it. It’s is some variant of “I’m not about the money, I’m about winning.” Then the money goes on the table and it’s all about the money. That’s the choice facing Carmelo Anthony this summer — a big payday from the Knicks and trust them to rebuild…
Report: Lakers will wait for 2015 free agents like Kevin Love unless they can get LeBron (Sorry, Melo)
Mar 5, 2014, 10:45 AM EDT
The Lakers are poised to make a big free agent splash this summer or the next, and Steve Nash is the lynchpin to the decision. If the Lakers want to go big this offseason, they’ll use the stretch provision on Nash, spreading the amount they owe him across the cap the next three years. But…

The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…
Mar 3, 2014, 1:16 PM EDT
This would be the definition of playing to the fan base. Although I’m sure Kobe Bryant believes it. There has been plenty of schadenfreude around the league — from other front offices to other fan bases — as the Lakers have fallen into being a hot mess this season. They entered the season with a…
