Take the $19.3 million next season or go for the security of a longer deal (and leave Sacramento)?

Too often we take the Spurs and the beauty of how they play basketball for granted. We shouldn’t.

The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

Shawn Marion is one of just six players drafted in 1999 who are still in the NBA.* (That was 15 years ago, Mr. Boeheim.) *Elton Brand, Andre Miller, Jason Terry (barely), Andrei Kirilenko and Manu Ginobili are the others. It’s quite the impressive career for a player who has been so reliant on athleticism. Marion…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while eating a $250 hamburger… Jarrett Jack, Cleveland Cavaliers. Earlier on Sunday the Atlanta Hawks had lost and so the Knicks had real motivation at the Garden vs. the Cavaliers — win and NY is just two games back of the last playoff spot in…

Kevin Durant had his latest technical foul rescinded, but two more and he’ll receive a one-game suspension.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking it’s crazy that “Lost” is 10 years old… LeBron James, Miami Heat. Nobody likes it when their ex-girlfriend walks into the party looking smoking hot. LeBron pretty much did that to the Cavaliers on Tuesday night — he had 25 points in the…

The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

In ESPN’s Fab Five documentary, Jalen Rose discussed how he felt about Duke while playing at Michigan. Rose: I hated Duke, and I hated everything I felt Duke stood for. Schools like Duke didn’t recruit players like me. I felt like they only recruited black players that were Uncle Toms. To many, that’s still the…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing table tennis against a robot… Paul Pierce, Brooklyn Nets. In a game against LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, The Truth was the best player on the court. He couldn’t seem to miss on his way to 29 points on 9-of-12 shooting including 5-of-7…

Normally posting video of one player dropping another with a crossover if it only leads to a missed shot is a bit gauche, but in this case, it’s worth making the exception. Tony Wroten seems to mystify Kings rookie Ray McCallum here, and McCallum trips over himself trying to keep up. Again, Wroten should have…

Is there tanking going on in the NBA this season? Depends on how you want to define taking. However even if you define it broadly it’s not as bad as many seem to think it is. New NBA commissioner Adam Silver defines it more narrowly and says there is no tanking going on right now.…

Carl Landry appeared in a career-high 81 games for the Warriors last season, and was a key reserve who averaged 10.8 points and six rebounds on a team that made it to the second round of the playoffs. The Kings haven’t sniffed the postseason in eight years, but signed Landry to a four-year deal worth…

Rudy Gay was inefficient as a Toronto Raptor. This is not up for debate. He attempted 17.6 shots per game in Toronto, making just 42.8 percent of the 2-pointers and 41.1 percent of all attempts. The only remaining question was whether Gay, who’s clearly not too fond of stats, knew he was inefficient as a…

Taj Gibson grew up in Brooklyn and attended USC. Mike Dunleavy graduated from a college-prep school in Oregon and attended Duke. They didn’t exactly have the same upbringings, but the Bulls teammates formed a bond years ago. On the New York City subway. Late at night. Once Dunleavy was already in the NBA. Gibson on…
