  1. Pat Riley says David Stern “The No. 1 reason why this league is where it is today”

    Jan 27, 2014, 1:27 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    This is David Stern’s final week as NBA Commissioner — the power exchange to Adam Silver comes over the weekend. Feb. 1 is the final day for David Stern on the job, and we all know the final day on a job you’re just screwing around and cleaning out your desk anyway. Stern is taking…

    the Washington Wizards host the Boston Celtics

    When USA Basketball announced its pool of players being considered for the World Championships this summer (and the Rio Olympics in a couple years) the list included the best point guards in the NBA: Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, Kyrie Irving, and Damian Lillard. John Wall was not on that list. His…

    NBA All-Star Bryant of the Lakers and All-Star Anthony of the Knicks laugh during the NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    by Brett Pollakoff NEW YORK – When Carmelo Anthony scored a jaw-dropping 62 points in a win over the Bobcats on Friday, he didn’t just set a Knicks franchise record. He took something that belonged to Kobe Bryant. The Madison Square Garden arena record, since the building opened its fourth incarnation in 1968, was set…

  4. Sunday night NBA grades: Stephen Curry leads Warriors to big win

    Jan 27, 2014, 2:15 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering why the Grammy officials thought a classical pianist with Metallica was a good idea…. Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. Turns out he can shoot the ball. Not his best day shooting but he had 23 in the first half and finished the game…

  5. Kyrie Irving says he plans to defend his All-Star Weekend Three Point Contest title

    Jan 24, 2014, 4:18 PM EDT

    Foot Locker Three-Point Contest

    Kyrie Irving is going to be a little busier this weekend in New Orleans for the All-Star Game, what with the fans voting him a starter and all. But he wants to defend his Three Point Contest title. Irving beat Matt Bonner in the final round last season, he was a bit of a surprise…

  6. LeBron, Curry, Kobe voted All-Star Game starters — but Kobe doesn’t want to play

  7. Kevin Durant takes twitter questions, is a Stephen Curry fan

    Jan 23, 2014, 3:45 PM EDT

    Oklahoma Thunder v Utah Jazz

    Kevin Durant had a little time to kill on Thursday. The Thunder are off for the night, which means Durant will only score 25 tonight. He’s that good. With that down time, Durant decided to answer some twitter questions. A few interesting things here — including a question about Stephen Curry and a couple of…

  8. LeBron, Durant lead Team USA roster pool for 2014 World Championships, 2016 Olympics

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    When Team USA takes the court in Rio in 2016 to defend its gold medal, you can expect to see somethings old and somthings new — guys who won gold in London and Beijing will be mixed with newcomers who got their real first taste of USA Basketball this coming summer in Spain for the…

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Some names leaked yesterday for inclusion on the 2014-16 USA Basketball men’s national-team roster – the pool of players who will be considered for upcoming international events. That includes the World Cup of Basketball this summer, possibly 2015 Olympic qualifiers  – and, of course, the 2016 Rio Olympics. Marc Stein of ESPN beat today’s official announcement with…

    NBA All-Star Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers holds up the MVP trophy after the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    Chris Paul is still out of action for the Clippers with a shoulder injury, but the initial timetable for his return would have him back some time near All-Star weekend, which will take place Feb. 14-16 in New Orleans. As Paul continues the recovery process, he told reporters he would love to play in the…

  11. PBT Extra: Who should be All-Star Game reserves?

    Jan 22, 2014, 6:05 PM EDT

    Lance Stephenson

    Thursday night the starters for the 2014 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans will become official, but we pretty much know who they will be — the East has no close races and the West is seeming settled. Here is who almost certainly gets announced. EASTERN CONFERENCE Backcourt: Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat), Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers)…

  12. Report: Dwight Howard to play for Team USA at World Championships, maybe Olympics

    Jan 22, 2014, 4:59 PM EDT

    USA's Dwight Howard grans the ball durin

    The last time Dwight Howard played for Team USA he was a 22-year-old helping the United States win gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. But that appears likely to change this summer with the World Championships in Spain, Howard will be in the pool of players coach Mike Krzyzewski and USA Basketball will choose from,…

  13. Let’s actually set criteria for selecting All-Stars

    Jan 22, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Toronto Raptors

    Has Dwyane Wade or Kyle Lowry had a better season? Lowry smashes Wade in win shares (6.4 to 3.1) and tops him in Estimated Wins Added (6.5 to 5.7), too. There’s value in staying on the court, and because Wade has been hobbled by knee issues this year, it’s clear Lowry, an impressive and consistent…

  14. Andre Iguodala hates playing in nationally televised games

    Jan 22, 2014, 12:03 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    When you are a team that draws eyeballs — like the Golden State Warriors with Stephen Curry — you end up on national television broadcasts a lot. For Golden State, it’s 17 times this season — that’s more than 20 percent of their games. And that’s fewer than the Heat, Lakers (despite their play), Thunder…

  15. The Extra Pass: Why the Knicks are starved offensively; plus Monday’s recaps

    Jan 21, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    As the New York Knicks were serenaded with a mix of boos and chants of “Brooklyn! Brooklyn!” at Madison Square Garden during an embarrassing 23 point home loss to the Nets, it felt like rock bottom. Again. For about the seventh time. That’s the thing about the Knicks this season. When it looks like it…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    After selecting the Eastern Conference All-Star reserves on Friday, it’s time to tackle the Western Conference. Once again, we’ll defer to the last ballot returns for our starters, which are decided solely by fan vote. Here’s the projected Western Conference starters: West Starters (Fan Vote) Backcourt: Kobe Bryant, Stephen Curry Frontcourt: Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin We’ll…

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

  20. Does trading Joel Anthony mean Heat are going after Andrew Bynum? Maybe.

    Jan 15, 2014, 7:59 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It was obvious why Golden State wanted Jordan Crawford as the centerpiece of the three-team trade that went down Wednesday — Stephen Curry has played more minutes than any point guard in the league this season and they need to get him some rest the second half of the season (not to mention the whole…

  21. PBT Extra: Talking trade, Warriors with CSNBayArea’s Monte Poole

    Jan 15, 2014, 6:58 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Orlando Magic

    The Golden State Warriors made a trade Wednesday to get Jordan Crawford out of Boston, upgrading their depth behind Stephen Curry — the kind of trade contenders make. On today’s PBT Extra myself and Monte Poole, the Warriors insider for CSNBayArea.com discuss that trade and what it means for Golden State — he thinks this sets…

  22. Report: Warriors add Jordan Crawford for guard depth in three-team trade with Celtics, Heat

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    Golden State has been looking to add depth behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson all season — the offense has been down just slightly this season, and Warriors missed the spark Jarrett Jack brought off the bench last season (not to mention wanting to get Curry some reduced minutes in the second half of the…

  23. Denver makes video trying to get people to vote Ty Lawson for All-Star Game

    Jan 13, 2014, 4:34 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Lawson celebrates a three-point shot against Golden State Warriors in their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    Not bad Denver Nuggets, not bad. Ty Lawson likely isn’t getting invited to New Orleans for the NBA All-Star game — he’s not in the Top 10 vote getters in the Western Conference backcourt so far this season — but Denver is pushing his candidacy with this video, making light of Lawson’s speed. To me,…

  24. The Extra Pass: Klay Thompson’s interesting statistical season; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 13, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry gets most of the headlines, and he earns them. Just remove Andre Iguodala from the rotation and the Warriors become pedestrian (as we have seen). Andrew Bogut anchors it all down. However we shouldn’t leave Klay Thompson off the list. When you start to look at the Sports VU camera data from the…

  25. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…
