  1. Howard, Stoudemire, Parsons, Shumpert, more star in fantastic fake movie trailer (VIDEO)

    Feb 12, 2014, 4:52 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Houston Rockets

    The first thing you need to know is that there is a company called Relativity Sports which represents a whole lot of NBA players. Dan Fegan is the head man of their basketball operations. That operation includes a marketing team, which put together this funny fake movie trailer. Which is pretty amusing. They got Dwight…

  2. Report: Warriors looking to make trade to bolster bench

    Feb 12, 2014, 11:47 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Warriors owner Joe Lacob has made it clear: The organization’s goal for this season was a top four seed in the West and home court in the first round of the playoffs. At 31-21, the Warriors are the six seed currently but are closer to Memphis in the nine seed out of the playoffs (2.5…

  3. Monday night NBA grades: Time to stop shoveling dirt on Anthony Bennett

    Feb 12, 2014, 3:09 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking this may be the best soccer goal celebration ever…. Anthony Bennett, Cleveland Cavaliers. You don’t know how a draft pick is going to pan out for three years. You just don’t. Some guys start fast but never really develop beyond that (Tyreke Evans,…

  4. Report: Suns would have ‘serious interest’ in Rudy Gay if he becomes a free agent

    Feb 8, 2014, 5:00 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Houston Rockets

    Rudy Gay can become an unrestricted free agent this summer, should he choose to opt out of the final year of his contract which will pay him $19.3 million next season. The majority of players like to sign for as many guaranteed years as possible as soon as the option is available, both to secure…

  5. Ben McLemore may attempt a 720 dunk in the Slam Dunk Contest

    Feb 8, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

    Kings McLemore McCallum Basketball

    The video above shows a player getting about as close to a 720-degree dunk as we’re likely to see. Getting enough hangtime to perform two complete spins before throwing it down is a tall task, but one that Kings’ rookie Ben McLemore may attempt in the Dunk Contest in New Orleans next weekend. From SBNation’s…

  6. Kings’ Isaiah Thomas calls Celtics’ Jerryd Bayless a ‘fake tough guy’ after on-court incident (VIDEO)

    Feb 8, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

    thomas bayless

    This is yet another example of why you don’t give a max contract to a player with the temperament of DeMarcus Cousins without the presence of any veterans on the roster to help with the team’s leadership. But this is only about him tangentially, so we’ll revisit this in a moment. Late in the fourth…

  7. Anthony Davis selected to fill Kobe Bryant’s All-Star slot in West

    Feb 7, 2014, 3:22 PM EST

    New Orleans Pelicans v Cleveland Cavaliers

    We told you earlier in the week it was coming down to two guys: Anthony Davis of the Pelicans or Goran Dragic of the Phoenix Suns. Kobe Bryant was voted an All-Star starter by the fans but can’t play due to his fractured knee, so the league office picks the replacement — meaning new commissioner…

  8. 2014 Slam Dunk Contest the most star-studded ever

    Feb 7, 2014, 8:46 AM EST

    Damian Lillard, Paul George

    It’s been 14 years since the Slam Dunk Contest has featured multiple All-Stars. Heck, in the last two years, no All-Stars have participated. But after years of pleas, the NBA has finally assembled a Dunk Contest field that includes the game’s top talent. Paul George, Damian Lillard and John Wall headline the 2014 event –…

  9. The Extra Pass: Handicapping the All-Star Saturday events

    Feb 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Denver Nuggets

    A week from now the eyes of the basketball world will be on New Orleans for the NBA’s Damian Lillardapalooza. … er, I mean the NBA’s All-Star weekend. While Sunday’s All-Star Game is the big show, I’ve always found Saturday night’s series of skill contests more fun than the no-D exhibition that is the All-Star…

  10. Wall, Lillard, George headline new look All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:55 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    If all of us — red state, blue state, regardless of religion or skin color — could come together and agree on just two things they would be: 1) Kevin Durant’s new puppy is really cute. 2) The NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest needed some life injected into it. The NBA has heard you on…

  11. Reports: Dunk contest field headlined by George, Wall, Lillard

    Feb 6, 2014, 5:58 PM EST

    Paul George

    We let you know last night that Damian Lillard said he was in for the dunk contest (and maybe much more). He’s not the only star. Multiple reports (including Yahoo, CSNWashington.com and ESPN) have given us what we expect to be the six-man dunk contest field: Paul George (Indiana Pacers) Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)…

  12. Rudy Gay says he’s unsure if he will test free agent market this summer

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:10 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    Rudy Gay has looked at home in Sacramento. The notoriously inefficient Gay has changed in the California capital, averaging 20.8 points a game with a spectacular true shooting percentage of 60.8 percent (it was 46.8 percent in Toronto) and a PER of 22.2 (14.9, right at the league average in Toronto). The question now on…

  13. Raptors Kyle Lowry called for offensive foul on made three, ejected for reaction (VIDEO)

    Feb 6, 2014, 11:26 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Portland Trail Blazers

    That was a bad call. A kind of obviously bad call. Down six and going for a three in the final 30 seconds of the Raptors eventual loss to the Kings, Lowry was freed up for a catch-and-shoot three and got called for the offensive foul. What the referee misjudged was something they were specifically…

  14. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

  15. Rudy Gay: ‘At this point, I know who I am’

    Feb 5, 2014, 2:57 PM EST

    Rudy Gay, Aaron Gray, Samuel Dalembert

    Rudy Gay has gone from one of the NBA’s most divisive players – the litmus test for the eye test vs. advanced stats debate – to someone observers of persuasions believe is too inefficient. The Grizzlies traded him and reached the conference finals. The Raptors traded him and are surging. It doesn’t take any fancy…

  16. Mike Dunleavy responds to DeMarcus Cousins’ clown comment with off-base stereotype of clowns

    Feb 5, 2014, 12:26 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins, Mike Dunleavy

    DeMarcus Cousins called Mike Dunleavy a clown after the Kings beat the Bulls on Monday, the latest – but not first – run-in between the two. Dunleavy isn’t letting the feud end there, taking a couple retaliatory shots at Cousins. Dunleavy, via Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com “He called me a clown?” Dunleavy said after Tuesday…

  17. Kings’ Derrick Williams goes for off-the-backboard dunk… and misses (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2014, 10:46 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Sacramento Kings

    If you’re going to fail, fail big. Late in the Kings’ blowout win over the Chicago Bulls Monday night Sacramento’s Derrick Williams makes the steal and has the breakaway dunk, so he decides to showboat a little and pass off the backboard to himself for the big throwdown. And he fails. Big. How bad was…

  18. DeMarcus Cousins on Bulls’ Mike Dunleavy: ‘He’s a clown’

    Feb 4, 2014, 8:46 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Sacramento Kings

    The Kings beat the Bulls by 29 points on Monday, in a physical contest that got chippy at times. Joakim Noah was ejected after cussing out every referee on the floor, and apparently there were some exchanges once again between DeMarcus Cousins and Mike Dunleavy Jr. We say once again, because these two have a…

  19. The Extra Pass: Central heat, plus Monday’s recaps

    Mike Brown

    No NBA head coach has been fired yet this season. Of course, “yet” is the key word there. Given the performances and the high expectations of a few teams in the Eastern Conference’s Central Division, that could be changing soon. Here’s a look at the tenuous positions of three coaches from that division, in order…

  20. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Adam Silver signs the balls, Kevin Durant keeps shooting them

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:21 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

  21. Who should get Kobe’s All-Star spot: Goran Dragic or Anthony Davis?

    Feb 3, 2014, 8:44 AM EST

    New Orleans Pelicans v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Whatever new NBA Commissioner Adam Silver does, he’s going to make some people angry, while others will say he’s an idiot. (He should get used to it, pretty much everything he does in the big chair will turn out that way.) Who does he choose for Kobe Bryant’s All-Star spot? Kobe is still out with…

  22. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

  23. Lance Stephenson leads list of three biggest All-Star Game snubs from each conference

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:38 PM EST

    Boston Celtics  v Indiana Pacers

    There are only 12 All-Star Game roster slots per conference, and there are more than 12 deserving players. Somebody is going to be left off — we like to call it a snub, but most of the time it’s more like splitting hairs between good players. You pull on of these guys off the coach’s…

  24. John Wall, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard lead NBA All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 30, 2014, 7:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    The fans had their say last week naming the NBA starters. This week coaches have their say getting to vote in the All-Star reserves — seven from each conference. Next the fun part comes, picking out who got snubbed. The reserves are voted on by the coaches (who only vote in their own conference and…

  25. Doc Rivers lobbied other coaches to vote DeAndre Jordan an All-Star. It won’t be enough.

    Jan 30, 2014, 2:26 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Boston Celtics

    Later on Thursday the NBA All-Star Game reserves will be announced — and in the Western Conference frontcourt a couple deserving guys will get snubbed. The fans voted in Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love as the starters. There likely will be four (maybe five) front court replacement players from a group including LaMarcus…
