  1. Friday And-1 links: What is Allen Iverson’s legacy?

    Aug 31, 2012, 9:33 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Republicans love bashing Obama… well, maybe not that much. • Just how…

  2. And at long last, the NBA goes to sleep for a month

    Aug 12, 2012, 9:57 PM EDT

    James of the U.S. hugs teammate Durant after their game against Lithuania at their men's preliminary round Group A basketball match at the Basketball Arena during the London 2012 Olympic Games

    The lockout had a lot of effects. One beat writer told me last week that because of the frequency of the games, stacked on top of each other, it didn’t feel like a 66-game season, but a 120-game season. Then there were the playoffs, with back-to-backs in the second round. The conference finals whizzing by…

  3. Bobcats cut Augustin loose, Pacers sign him to deal

    Jul 12, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Darko Milicic

    So Indiana just traded Darren Collison then paid $1 million a year more to have D.J. Augustin backup George Hill? Interesting decision. But that’s what the Pacers have done (and got backup center Ian Mahinmi in the process). Here’s how it went down. On Wednesday the Pacers traded Collison to Dallas for Mahinmi. On Thursday,…

  4. Bobcats reach deal with point guard Ramon Sessions

    Jul 12, 2012, 2:16 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    The lowly Bobcats just got better. The Bobcats have come to terms on a deal for point guard Ramon Sessions, according to Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports and the Charlotte Observer. This is a good move, it gives the Bobcats a more known, steady entity to pair with Kemba Walker at the point. Sessions is…

  5. Report: Bobcats target Sessions, Haywood in free agency

    Jul 12, 2012, 10:29 AM EDT

    Bobcats forward Maggette drives on Mavericks center Haywood during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    The Bobcats have some holes to fill on their roster. Stop with the joke about 15 holes, it’s too easy. They are trying to build, but in the short term they need to put together a roster that is less embarrassing than the one that rolled out there last season. So they are targeting a…

  6. 50 Observations about NBA Free Agency

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    From time to time, I drop random observations because it’s too long for a tweet and too short for a full post. Also because it allows me to crack jokes, which is really the reason I’m here. That and the money. Mostly the money. Anyway, it’s been a crazy week of free agency. Here are…

  7. It’s come to this: Mavericks looking at Sessions, maybe Brand

    Jul 6, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s not the end of the world for the Mavericks that this summer hasn’t gone according to plan. Not in the least. But that is not going to make this coming season any prettier. Jason Terry joins the long list of departed from the Dallas title team. The Mavericks are now chasing guys not on…

  8. Lakers not moving Gasol after Nash trade. Nor should they.

    Jul 5, 2012, 12:55 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol walks off the court after a season-ending loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder during Game 5 of the NBA western conference semi-finals in Oklahoma City

    Once Lakers fans realized that they had not imbibed so much on the Fourth of July that they hallucinated their team had signed Steve Nash… well, first they went and got another drink. But not long after another question came up: Do we keep Pau Gasol or still try to trade him? Lakers management has…

  9. Report: Lakers quietly enter chase for Steve Nash

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:53 PM EDT

    Steve Nash Kobe Bryant

    Can Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant co-exist? While the gut reaction may be “no, there is only one basketball allowed on the court at any given time” the reality is these are two high hoops IQ players who would do whatever it takes to win another ring. And Kobe would get better looks. While the…

  10. Free Agency Rundown 7.1.12: The movers, they are a shaking

    Jul 1, 2012, 10:31 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Here’s what’s going on with free agency news and rumors as the moratorium period began Sunday night at 12:01 a.m..Do not, by any means, consider this comprehensive. There’s so much going on, we’re just trying to get you an overview. (HT: Hoopshype, IAmAGM.com) Atlanta Hawks Well, for starters, they’re exploring a deal for Joe Johnson…

  11. Lakers owner Jim Buss says don’t expect big moves

    Jun 20, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Two straight years the Lakers have been ousted in the second round. They still have Kobe Bryant and while he’s closer to the back end than the front end of his career he still was almost the league scoring champion. They have two All-Star caliber big men, maybe it is time to move one and…

  12. Sessions opts out, becomes free agent; Lakers need a PG again

    Jun 19, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    That turned out to be the definition of a rental… Lakers point guard Ramon Sessions — who the team picked up at the trade deadline, sending their first-round pick to Cleveland — has opted out of his deal and will become a free agent, reports Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times. He was to…

  13. Jim Buss was “very disappointed” in Lakers finish

    Jun 1, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike Brown

    I will say this for Jim Buss (the son of Lakers owner Jerry Buss who now runs the franchise): he is getting out and talking to the media more. He realizes he needs to have a presence with the fans (like his sister Jeanie does). So he went on a the Lakers flagship radio station…

  14. Ramon Sessions says it’s very different being a Laker

    May 28, 2012, 9:49 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Ramon Sessions spent the first five-and-a-half years in the NBA’s small markets — Milwaukee, Minnesota, Cleveland (post LeBron era). It means half-empty arenas, meaningless games (Sessions didn’t see the playoffs his first five years) and some level of anonymity. Then he got traded to the Lakers. ESPN’s John Hollinger once said that Lakers players don’t…

  15. Report: Deron Williams has Lakers on his list (behind Nets)

    May 23, 2012, 3:18 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    A Deron Williams and Kobe Bryant backcourt, with Andrew Bynum in the paint. That team could be very dangerous. Apparently, Deron Williams has thought about it. In an article where he says the Lakers and Magic need to do a Bynum for Dwight Howard swap, Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated drops some interesting knowledge about…

  16. And-1 links: Adam Morrison is looking better than ever

    May 23, 2012, 12:03 PM EDT

    After a one day hiatus, we return our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • That’s Adam Morrison to the right, going with the…

  17. Lakers need big changes — which means trading a big man

    May 22, 2012, 11:34 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol walks off the court after a season-ending loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder during Game 5 of the NBA western conference semi-finals in Oklahoma City

    It’s obvious the Lakers need changes. Big changes. The Oklahoma City Thunder are younger, deeper, more athletic and just flat out better. And they are not going anywhere for a few years. That’s not to mention up-and-coming contenders like the Clippers in the West that are passing where the Lakers seem stuck on the side…

  18. Something weird was up with the court at Staples Saturday, but the arena says situation normal

    May 20, 2012, 10:07 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Three

    You know those situations where you know something is wrong, but there’s no physical evidence to suggest as such? We’ve got one of those. Saturday night during Lakers-Thunder Game 4, there was something wrong with the court. The most notable example came before the half, when Russell Westbrook, a pretty agile guy, turned to run…

  19. Lakers-Thunder Game 3: L.A. wins free throw contest by a lot, wins game by 3

    May 19, 2012, 3:15 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Three

    Forty-two free throws is a lot of free throw attempts. Forty-one free throws made is a lot of makes. The Lakers got one, made the other, and walked out of Staples with a win in Game 4, 99-96. We can talk about a lot of things. The way that the Lakers attacked the Thunder defensively,…

  20. Lakers-Thunder Game 2: A Thunder magic trick, a Lakers disappearing act, and a change of the guard

    May 17, 2012, 1:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    In Game 1, everything went wrong for the Lakers, everything went right for the Thunder. Thunder won. In Game 2, for 46 minutes, at least some things went right for the Lakers, everything went wrong for the Thunder. The pace was slow. The defense was incredible for the Lakers. The Thunder weren’t hitting jumpers. A…

  21. Lakers-Thunder Game 2: Let’s try this again, Lakeshow

    May 16, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    So what do the Los Angeles Lakers need to do to improve in Game 2 vs. the Thunder? A brief list: 1. Do not be terrible 2. Defend jumpshots better 3. Have Pau Gasol act like an NBA player 4. Work the ball inside to draw more contact and get to the line 5. Again,…

  22. Lakers-Thunder Game 1: Lakers suffer a Thundertality

    May 15, 2012, 1:24 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    This was a beating. A smackdown. A trouncing. A demolition. A boat race. A blowout. A “hit ‘em in the head with a shovel and drag their team to an unmarked grave,” “nail ‘em with a 2X4, watch them stagger around and then slam the door on them on the way out,” downright unavoidable-to-say butt…

  23. Lakers-Thunder Western Conference Semifinals Preview: No longer a feel good story

    May 14, 2012, 4:42 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Matt Barnes

    Two years ago, the Oklahoma City Thunder faced the Los Angeles Lakers in the first-round of the 2010 NBA Playoffs. It was supposed to be a nice learning experience for a team on the rise, a quick lesson from the reigning champs as to how the playoffs work. Instead, the world was introduced to the…

  24. Nuggets blow out Lakers to force a Game 7

    May 11, 2012, 2:17 AM EDT

    kobe-game6-nuggets

    Denver more than held serve on its home court in Thursday night’s Game 6 against the Lakers; the team made a statement. Facing their second elimination game of the series, the Nuggets made sure this one was never in doubt, opening the game on a 13-0 run and leading by as many as 28 points…

  25. Lakers are going to have to pony up to keep Sessions, Hill

    May 7, 2012, 4:03 PM EDT

    Jordan Hill

    When the Lakers traded for Ramon Sessions, the thought was long-term not short. They knew he could opt out at the end of this season and become a free agent and that they might have to pay to keep him. But the surprising play they have gotten from Jordan Hill these playoffs has given them…
