    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    UPDATE 4:50 PM: This really isn’t a surprise if you saw the play — Stephen Curry has been diagnosed with what the team called a “mild concussion” and he will not play Wednesday. I’m not a fan of the word “mild” when it comes to brain injuries (I have concerns about how the “warrior mentality”…

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis.

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot?

  8. Oddsmakers say Wizards’ Wittman favorite for first coach to be fired

    Nov 14, 2013, 6:51 PM EST

    Randy Wittman

    It doesn’t take much to see why Washington’s Randy Wittman is the guy many see as the coach on the hottest seat. His team is 2-6 but with playoff aspirations. His star player is writing “playoffs” on his shoes every game (and shooting 37.9 percent). His team’s owner Ted Leonsis has talked playoffs a lot…

    Jamaal Tinsley

    The Utah Jazz brought in veteran point guard Jamaal Tinsley to provide a little stability with rookie Trey Burke out with an injured finger. At least that was the plan.

  17. Eric Bledsoe hits the game-winning three to send Suns past Jazz (VIDEO)

    Nov 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Eric Bledsoe, Reggie Jackson

    When watching Eric Bledsoe dribble down the clock with the game tied before taking the final shot, I kept thinking that he was waiting to long, and that he needed to initiate the play sooner than he actually decided to. I had no idea, obviously, that Bledsoe had no intention of driving to the basket.…

    Andrew Wiggins

    On the day the NBA season tips off, one of the big stories is tanking. David Stern (and Adam Silver) has to feel just a little nauseous about it.
