  1. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar basically questions Andrew Bynum’s love of basketball

    Dec 29, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Andrew Bynum

    When the Los Angeles Lakers first drafted Andrew Bynum they brought in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as his personal coach — people forget Kareem was about as fundamentally sound a center as the game had seen. He seemed a good fit with the very raw Bynum. Kareem tried to work with Bynum, but they clashed. It was…

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Chicago Bulls

    How big is Christmas Day to the NBA? Look at it this way: Last year’s Christmas Day game between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder drew more viewers (9.6 million people) than all but one playoff game prior to the NBA Finals (that was Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals between Miami and…

    Nets Bulls Basketball

    In the early days of mixed martial arts, there were quite a few athletes who would refuse to submit in the ring. Their arm could be on the verge of snapping, but it didn’t matter – they wouldn’t give up. They would rather break their arm. I remember holding these athletes in such high regard,…

    Dec 20, 2013, 4:47 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Atlanta Hawks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching my Long Beach State 49ers beat USC (at least that’s what I did with part of my night)… Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. He led his team to an easy win and how about this for a line: 32 points on 13-of-20 shooting,…

  7. No stars, no problem: Spurs reserves too much for Warriors in 104-102 win

    Dec 20, 2013, 2:55 AM EST

    Stephen Curry, Warriors, Spurs

    When the Spurs rest Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili they still are pretty darn good. Ask the Heat — last year Gregg Popovich and the Spurs were fined $250,000 by the league for late notice resting the big three for a Thursday night showcase game in Miami. What people forget is the Spurs…

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s Golden State’s Elevator screen play: The “Elevator” screen is one of the most aesthetically pleasing plays you’ll see in the league, particularly when it’s run by Golden State. That’s in large part because any possession that ends in a…

  10. Jordan Farmar out at least another week for Lakers

    Dec 18, 2013, 6:47 PM EST

    jordan farmar

    The Lakers are playing without any healthy point guards at the moment, which is making things difficult on the team overall, but especially on Kobe Bryant. Bryant leads the league in turnovers with 5.7 per contest, and while he’s only played six games, it’s substantially more than Stephen Curry‘s 4.2 per game for the season.…

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:15 PM EST

    LeBron James

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    To answer your first question: I am fighting off a cold, that’s why I sound like that. Raspy voices are in, I hear. As for the topics… If you’re a basketball purist who thinks the All-Star Game should be filled with the players who performed the best the first half of the season… well life…

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    In Eric Bledsoe’s final game with the Los Angeles Clippers last season, he played nine minutes and 28 seconds.

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:05 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while laughing at LeBron James’ recent outfit… Kevin Love, Minnesota Timberwolves. He could be here for the 30 points on 21 shots. He could be here for the 9 rebounds (which is a little off his pace a little), But he is here because a…

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s your game fans. The NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition filled with the players you vote to see.

    John Henson

    By D.J. Foster All over the league, we’ve seen young teams fighting against the tank. If the playoffs started today, the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns would be in the playoffs. This was unfathomable a few months ago. It wasn’t just about their rosters being bad – they were supposed to be bad. The Milwaukee…

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:21 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    Dec 6, 2013, 9:23 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Ray Allen couldn’t do it. Neither could Reggie Miller or Stephen Curry or any of the other three-point marksman you can name. Kyle Korver has now made a three in 90 consecutive games, breaking the record Dana Barros set in 1996. He did it midway through the first quarter from above the break on the…
