    New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin shakes hands with MInnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love before game

    Just go out and play. Let God and the universe take care of the rest of it. That is the battle Jeremy Lin says he fights daily now — not trying to live up to the expectations of others, not trying to control everything, but just going out and playing basketball. Lin — a devoutly…

  5. Samuel Dalembert gets benched as message from McHale

    Feb 7, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Minutes — that is the most effective thing a coach can hold over a player’s head in the NBA. Kevin McHale did that Monday night — he didn’t like the activity level out of his big men against Denver, so he benched them. Samuel Dalembert and Jordan Hill played the first seven minutes of the…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls on top after quarter of season

    Jan 23, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Believe it or not, we are about a quarter of the way through the condensed NBA season already. And with that, these rankings are starting to take some solid shape. Which is bad news for Celtics and Knicks fans. But it’s all good in Chicago. 1. Bulls (15-3, last week ranked No. 1). If Derrick…

    Samuel Dalembert

    What you missed while being thankful this wasn’t your fifth grade teacher… Heat 98, Lakers 87: Miami looking like contenders and the Lakers looking lost was our game of the night. Rockets 90, Hornets 88 (OT): The most entertaining game of the night was the one almost nobody watched. Houston led from the opening tip…

    Miami tripped up out West and the Bulls ran over them on the way to the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Meanwhile, jump on the Sixers bandwagon while you can. 1. Bulls (12-2, last week ranked No. 2). Five wins in a row and their next five games are against teams under .500, so…

  10. Weekend Observations 1.14.12: The Nightmarejao Effect

    Jan 14, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.  1. Gregg Popovich’s talk about defense isn’t just his usual grousing. The Spurs were brilliant the first handful of games defensively but their regression has seemed very emblematic of last year’s team. They are slipping further and further away from what…

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant chews on his jersey during NBA game in Los Angeles

    Kobe Bryant is still going to be Kobe Bryant when the Lakers take the floor Tuesday against the Rockets. To think that his 6-for-28 shooting night in a loss to Denver Sunday was going to change him was to think that arrests were going to change Lindsay Lohan. Some people are what they are. In…

  13. Knicks snatch up Jeremy Lin, which might be a good fit for him

    Jeremy_Lin_Warriors

    Jeremy Lin came out of Harvard with a fearless game — he attacked the rim at every opportunity. Even the times he shouldn’t. But his aggressiveness and some good finishes made him a fan favorite in Las Vegas at the Summer League a couple years ago. He’s quick but his game is a bit raw.…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks fall, Heat race into top spot

    Dec 26, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Only one third of the teams in the NBA have played a game, but it was enough to move some teams around and give us a new No. 1. 1. Heat (1-0, last week ranked No. 2). They had 100 possessions in their opening game, nine more than they averaged last season. If they do…

    Samuel Dalembert

    Samuel Dalembert is the best free agent big out there on the market right now. Problem for him is the market is shrinking and he may not get paid like he hoped. The Houston Rockets are out of the running, tweets David Aldridge of TNT and NBA.com. Sources: Rockets, at the moment, taking a pass…

    Dec 19, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes

    In the wake of what happened with Jeff Green of the Celtics last week, we can only hope that this isn’t as serious or at least is as treatable. In a surprise move the Sacramento Kings have voided the free agent contract of Chuck Hayes, the team announced, as reported by CSNBayArea.com. He had abnormalities appear…
