Bosh would give up more than $35 million to leave Miami for Houston, but maybe LeBron James’ departure convinces him to do so
Rockets can’t keep Dwight Howard, James Harden and Chandler Parsons and give Chris Bosh max contract
Jul 9, 2014, 10:32 PM EDT
Has Bosh decided on signing with Houston if LeBron James leaves Heat anyway?

Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh are reportedly Houston’s backup options
Jun 15, 2014, 1:59 PM EDT

Is it time to have Howard cover Aldridge?

Lance Stephenson was second, Anthony Davis third, but they were well back of Dragic.

What does this mean for Carmelo Anthony?

Nine combined spots on the ballot go to eight different players, and none of our winners made the other two’s top three

There is no timetable, but it looks like the Rockets will have
Mar 28, 2014, 1:31 PM EDT
The Rockets’ starting point guard going to get a second opinion, but if he is out for the playoffs that is not good news for a team on the cusp of contention. It means more Jeremy Lin, but he’s not the defender Beverley is.

Dwight Howard has been healthy this season, and with that played like the guy the Lakers thought they were getting a year ago. Houston has looked good and improving with him in the paint. But he was out Monday night against Utah with an ankle strain suffered against Miami on Sunday. Now he is going…

At a panel during the Sloan Conference, Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers described the arduous process of acquiring Andre Iguodala. The Warriors had no cap room last summer, so Myers faced a two-sided task to land the free agent. Not only did he negotiate with Iguodala, Myers discussed trades with other teams to…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Jimmy Fallon, Idina Menzel (or Adele Dazeem if you prefer) and The Roots sing “Let It Go”… Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder. Tell me again how this team is better off without him? Westbrook had a triple double — 13 points, 10 rebounds…

Houston passed the first test. The Rockets NBA’s have the best record since Jan. 1 (19-6 coming into Tuesday night) but a lot of that came against soft competition. That was the easy part, the next couple weeks come a series of tests against the league’s best — from that we’ll get a better sense…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while freaking out that their are flying snakes (and not just those aboard a plane with Samuel L. Jackson)…. LeBron James, Miami Heat. LeBron James does bleed — we have now all seen it — blowing up the alien conspiracy theories out there. He also…

Not a whole lot went right for the Minnesota Timberwolves against the Rockets Monday night, and it wasn’t a great night for Alexey Shved. But he did do this. While wearing a mask. Terrence Jones tries to rotate over to help, but he is late and just ends up in the picture. Not sure I…

The Rising Stars Challenge kicks off the All-Star weekend festivities that Friday night, and features a mix of the game’s top rookies and sophomores competing in the exhibition. Teams used to be separated by seniority, which often times meant a blowout victory for the second-year players. But the league has since created a draft of…

The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…
Michael Carter-Williams, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard all in All-Star Weekend Rising Stars Challenge
Jan 29, 2014, 5:45 PM EDT
While the All-Star Game itself is an exhibition for the biggest names in basketball, a sneaky fun part of All-Star Weekend is always the Rising Stars Challenge — watching the games best young players put on a little show. And there are plenty of good young players to showcase this season. Last season’s Rookie of…

It was the best of halves, it was the worst of halves. Unfortunately for the Rockets the worst of halves was the second one. That’s when Houston went ice cold from three (0-of-9), shot just 19.4 percent overall and put up 19 points. It was that half that makes you realize how far this Rocket…
