    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    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…

    Mar 3, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Warriors Raptors Basketball

    Imagining how previous NBA drafts would play out in hindsight is always fun, an instant debate starter for basketball fans. I’m sure we’ve all wasted a countless hours analyzing questions like: Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh No. 3 behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2004? Do half the top-eight picks in 2013 remain in…

    Washington Wizards v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reminding yourself not to make love to a pizza…. Marcin Gortat, Washington Wizards. That is why Washington needed Marcin Gorat. It may have taken John Wall a while to realize it — there were some rough patches at the start — but Gortat has…

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    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…

  14. Jordan Hamilton to Rockets, Aaron Brooks headed to Denver in trade

    Feb 20, 2014, 2:12 PM EDT

    Aaron Brooks

    Ever since Andre Miller was banished by coach Brian Shaw, Denver has been looking for a solid point guard to play behind Ty Lawson. They finally found one on the Houston Rockets. Houston will send Aaron Brooks to Denver in exchange for Jordan Hamilton, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Hamilton, a 6-foot-7 wing player,…

  16. Andre Miller possibly returning to Nuggets? Reports conflict

    Feb 16, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson, Andre Miller, Brian Shaw

    The Nuggets need a point guard. Ty Lawson has been out with a broke rib. Nate Robinson had season-ending surgery. And Andre Miller was sent home. Trying to plug along without those three, the Nuggets have, predictably, fared poorly. Their season net rating, according to nbawowy, is –1.5. Without any of those three point guards,…

  17. John Wall: People see me as a No. 1 pick who hasn’t done anything

    Feb 11, 2014, 4:22 PM EDT

    John Wall, LeBron James

    Professional athletes love to talk about all the people who don’t believe in them, even if everyone believes in them. Some get creative. Throughout his NBA career, Michael Jordan referenced a high school coach cutting him. That was because nobody really doubted Jordan during his time at North Carolina and with the Chicago Bulls. But…

  18. Ty Lawson, who couldn’t sit up straight for days, expected to be out ‘a little while’

    Feb 11, 2014, 12:00 PM EDT

    Mark Ayotte, Ty Lawson

    Before the season, it seemed the Nuggets had a surplus of point guards: Ty Lawson, Andre Miller and Nate Robinson. But Miller was sent home. Robinson had season-ending surgery. And now Lawson is hurt. Lawson, the Nuggets’ top player, broke a rib in a loss to the Pistons on Saturday. He missed Monday’s loss to…

  19. Toronto Raptors reportedly wary of paying Kyle Lowry in $40 million range

    Feb 10, 2014, 5:54 PM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    Kyle Lowry’s value has never been higher. It might never get higher. With Lowry heading into free agency this summer, this could be the exact right time to trade him. The Raptors could get substantial long-term assets in return, positioning themselves to truly contend down the road. However, a Lowry trade would almost certainly undermine…

  20. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  21. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    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,…

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

    Nate Robinson

    Ugh. Another exciting player to watch down for the season.

  24. Denver’s Nate Robinson has sprained ACL, could miss some time

    Jan 30, 2014, 4:15 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    Nate Robinson had started for the Nuggets on Wednesday with Ty Lawson out, but he only played six minutes against the Bobcats when he seemed to tweak his knee, but then he jogged back to the locker room under his own power so it didn’t seem like much to worry about. But he didn’t return…

    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.
