Beyond Lowry, those are many marginal players, and none of them are Carmelo Anthony

Why salary-cap math says Indiana should keep Lance Stephenson – and maybe even rebuild a leaner roster around him

Some words, some shoving, but nothing beyond that.

The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

If the Lakers were going to make a run to the playoffs once Kobe Bryant returns from injury, Steve Blake would have played a key role. A quality outside shooter who competes defensively, Blake added to that roster. Of course, the Lakers were never going to make the playoffs this season. That’s why they traded…

It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

This game played out pretty much exactly as expected. Dwight Howard made his return to Staples Center and was lustily booed by Lakers fans. Then the game tipped off and the Rockets went out of their way to feed Howard in the post — he scored the Rockets first six points and had eight points,…

With the Lakers season having spun so far out of control that all has essentially become lost in Los Angeles, there’s no reason for them to hold onto anything remotely resembling an asset that the team isn’t committed to keeping beyond this season. Steve Blake (when healthy) has been more than serviceable at the guard…

Steve Nash played his 10th game for the Lakers Tuesday night (maybe now some Lakers fans will finally let go of the medical retirement stuff that was never going to happen anyway). And he aggravated his nerve root injury. Again. Nash tried to play through it but that didn’t work. He said the back issue…

If the season ended today, the Lakers would have the seven or eight pick (they are tied with Cleveland, there would be a coin flip). They are also currently 12 games back of the eight seed and the playoffs in the West, ground they are not going to make up. Those facts have a lot…

The Lakers, already far and away leading the NBA in man-games lost to injury, continue to pad that lead. Not that they want to. Just as they got pretty much their entire point guard rotation back from injury, they have lost Nick Young for at least two weeks with a “non-displaced fracture of the patella…

Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering why anyone would live in a dumpster for a year, voluntarily… Dwight Howard, Houston Rockets. The NBA game is in large part about exploiting mismatches. With all due respect to the solid season Miles Plumlee is having, him trying to cover Dwight Howard…
