    Jonny Flynn

    The Lakers and Knicks are starting to act like that balding guy with the shirt unbuttoned a little too far trying to hit on every girl in the bar as it gets closer to the 2 a.m. closing time. You can smell the desperation on them. They both need a point guard so badly they…

  7. Winderman: Bulls should look at Knicks before going all-in for Dwight Howard

    Jan 31, 2012, 4:04 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Ah, the mega-trade, the all-for-one and the hope that the one is the end-all. As the Magic continue to stagger, and as it becomes clearer that Dwight Howard did not sign up for this, the only remaining issue seems to be how “all in” a trade partner might go. And that, to a degree, brings…

  10. Knicks talk defense, Lakers play it and win handily

    Dec 30, 2011, 2:39 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Matt Barnes, Pau Gaso

    The talk coming into the season was how Tyson Chandler was going to change the Knicks defense. He might, eventually. But Mike Brown has brought new energy and physicality to the Lakers defense right now — the Knicks shot 31.7 percent Thursday night (and for the season opponents are shooting only 38 percent against the…

    Renaldo Balkman (L) of Puerto Rico fight

    Monday’s game between Venezuela and Puerto Rico at the FIBA America’s Tournament carried a lot of weight – Puerto Rico is fighting for one of the two 2012 Olympics berths from the event, Venezuela is battling with Canada and Uruguay to get fifth place and the invite to the pre-Olympics qualifying tournament next year.

    AHarrington_Nuggetintro

    Al Harrington was brought in to Denver to provide some depth on the front line, to be the healthy big man while Kenyon Martin and Chris Anderson get their bodies right. So much for that plan. Harrington will miss at least the rest of the preseason with a partially torn plantar fascia in his left…
