  1. NBA owners forced to choose between Maloofs and Sacramento in remake of Major League

    Dec 5, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    George Maloof

    Every good story needs a villain, but the NBA probably doesn’t want to remake the movie Major League in order to sell its product. Indeed, George Maloof and his brothers have done their best Rachel Phelps impression, complete with bottom-four payrolls over the past four seasons and little-to-no improvement to the franchise whatsoever. In the…

  2. Dwight Howard says it will be “weird” to face Magic Sunday

    Dec 2, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard All-Star

    Dwight Howard looked like a guy getting healthy Friday night, like a guy finding his footing with a new team in a brand new offense — 28 points and 20 rebounds. He started to look like the best center in the game. And now on Sunday night he gets to take another step against a…

  4. Rajon Rondo suspended two games for fight with Nets; Wallace, Garnett fined

    Nov 29, 2012, 4:59 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo got off lighter than many expected, apparently because the fight Wednesday between the Celtics and Nets was a lot of pushing without an actual punch thrown. Rondo has been suspended two games by the league for the incident, Celtics GM Danny Ainge first announced on WEEI radio in Boston then confirmed by the…

  5. Kevin Love, DeMarcus Cousins called for a block and a charge on the same play (VIDEO)

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:55 AM EDT

    Nikola Pekovic, DeMarcus Cousins, Kevin Love

    This was an odd play to say the least, but one that ultimately resulted in the officials doing the right thing. With 8:57 to play in the third quarter of Tuesday night’s game between the Kings and the Timberwolves, DeMarcus Cousins came down the lane and collided with Kevin Love on his way to attempting…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Sixers get win despite Vince Carter heroics

    Nov 28, 2012, 4:30 AM EDT

    Dorell Wright, Shawn Marion

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching a Christmas lights show timed out to “Gangnam Style”… Pacers 79, Lakers 77: Sometimes you watch a game and think neither team deserves to win it. That was this game. It was ugly. But despite 40 from Kobe Bryant…

  7. DeMarcus Cousins says referee cursed at him before ejection

    Nov 27, 2012, 12:42 PM EDT

    kings-cousins

    Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins was ejected Saturday night, and that barely causes a ripple in the pond anymore. Cousins was called for a foul on Utah’s Enes Kanter, then after the whistle stopped play Cousins slapped the ball out of Kanter’s hands and that earned him his first technical. Shockingly, Cousins’ disagreed with a…

  8. Kings’ Aaron Brooks fined $25K for mouthpiece toss

    Nov 26, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    Aaron Brooks, Jamaal Tinsley

    Aaron Brooks was frustrated. Which is something he has in common with the entire Sacramento fan base, but that’s another topic. The Kings had just fallen to the 104-102 to the Utah Jazz and Brooks was ticked — with 15 seconds to go he had driven the lane and thought he was fouled but nothing…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: Memphis hangs on but Spurs, Heat charging

    Nov 26, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Lionel Hollins, Jerryd Bayless, Mike Conley

    If you ask me who was the best team in the NBA was last week, well, it was Denver. But they are fully capable of a winless week now, so we leave Memphis in the top spot this week. And Washington is still trying to find a win and a way out of the cellar…

  11. Gordon Hayward hits the game-winner to drop the Kings (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Gordon Hayward

    The Kings led the Jazz by 13 points with eight and a half minutes to play, but funny things tend to happen in Utah, especially to a team that’s now 3-9 on the season with the worst record in the Western Conference. This game-ending play was one of them, as Gordon Hayward somehow finds himself…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers, Celtics both lose; it’s not the ‘80s anymore

    Our nightly recap of the games from around the NBA. Or, what you missed while going out tonight because you have to deal with your family tomorrow… Thunder 117, Clippers 111 (OT): Nobody stops Chris Paul, but the Thunder did a better job of slowing him down than anyone has this season and that’s how…

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rando look on from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while watching the Andrew Bynum bowling gif over and over.

  14. Three stars of the Night: Kobe, Durant and a defensive gem

    Nov 19, 2012, 1:18 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Seeing names like Kobe and Durant on the three stars of the night can get a bit routine, even when they are both putting up a triple double. But we have a first at the three stars — someone making it because of their defensive efforts. And it’s well deserved. Honorable mention to DeMarcus Cousins…

  15. Kings hold players-only meeting after loss to Hawks

    Nov 17, 2012, 6:01 PM EDT

    Rodney Motte, DeMarcus Cousins

    The Sacramento Kings fell to 2-7 on the season after dropping a lopsided game at home to the Hawks on Friday. The team’s record isn’t a surprise to the league pundits who predicted yet another rough season in Sacramento, but the players who have to live with it day in and day out are already…

  16. DeMarcus Cousins releases statement, union appeals suspension

    Nov 14, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Klay Thomspon, DeMarcus Cousins, Andrew Bogut

    DeMarcus Cousins has sat out his league mandated two-game suspension for an angry confrontation with Spurs broadcaster Sean Elliott — he tried to appeal it but the league denied his request to even reconsider the appeal. So now the players union is taking up his case and appealing — he can’t get the games back…

  17. League upholds two-game suspension of DeMarcus Cousins

    Nov 14, 2012, 8:38 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Harrions Barnes

    Kings center DeMarcus Cousins sat out Tuesday night as his team lost to the Trail Blazers, serving the second of a two-game suspension by the league because the league denied his appeal of the suspension, reports Sam Amick of the USA Today. The original incident took place after the Kings loss to the Spurs last…

  18. Players union appeals DeMarcus Cousins suspension

    Nov 12, 2012, 9:28 PM EDT

    dcousins

    DeMarcus Cousins did an immature thing — he heard Spurs broadcaster Sean Elliot was hard on him during the telecast and came out of the locker room in his uniform to confront him “in a hostile manner.” The league is not fond of players confronting media partners like that, so Cousins got a two-game suspension,…

  19. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  20. Keith Smart talks about maturity and DeMarcus Cousins

    Nov 12, 2012, 11:15 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut, James Capers, DeMarcus Cousins

    My friends say I should act my age. What’s my age again? What’s my age again? —Blink 182 DeMarcus Cousins acts a lot like of 22-year-olds. Stretches of maturity followed by lapses in judgment. And learning lessons the hard way. He’s been in the spotlight so long, since his days at Kentucky, that we expect…

  21. Lakers cruise to another win as nobody talked about the game

    Nov 12, 2012, 1:13 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol, Francisco Garcia

    What were people talking about at Staples Center Sunday night? Phil Jackson. Is he coming to the Lakers in the next 24 hours? Does he really want the job? How does he implement the triangle with Steve Nash and no training camp? You know the fans want him because midway through the second quarter they…

  22. Three Stars of the Night: Two big names and a role player

    Nov 12, 2012, 1:05 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, James Johnson

    On any given night, anyone can step up to be the difference maker that leads his team to a victory. Typically, it’s the team’s best player or one of their key starters that does it. That’s why they’re paid the big bucks, after all. Sometimes, though, it’s a role player that comes out hitting shots…

  23. DeMarcus Cousins suspended two games over incident with Spurs broadcaster Sean Elliott

    Nov 11, 2012, 7:42 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended two games without pay for confronting San Antonio Spurs announcer Sean Elliott in a hostile manner following Friday night’s game, the league announced in an official release. Cousins will miss Sunday night’s game against the Lakers in Los Angeles and Tuesday night’s home game against the Blazers. The original incident…

  24. NBA reviewing incident between DeMarcus Cousins and Sean Elliott

    Nov 11, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut, James Capers, DeMarcus Cousins

    We told you about the words exchanged between DeMarcus Cousins and Spurs broadcaster Sean Elliott during (and apparently after) Friday’s game between the Kings and the Spurs. The short version is that Elliot said some very Elliot things on the broadcast, Cousins heard what he said, and let him know (probably as politely and professionally…

  25. DeMarcus Cousins responds to Sean Elliott ripping him on the Spurs broadcast

    Nov 10, 2012, 9:45 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Harrions Barnes

    Sean Elliott is pretty much the definition of a “homer” when he’s working as an analyst on the Spurs television broadcast. His commentary is one-sided, which is probably fine if you’re a Spurs fan, but for those who aren’t, it makes it a little difficult to listen to. We’re just interested observers, though. Imagine how…
