    It’s Drake Night in Toronto as the Raptors host the Nets on Saturday, and the Canadian recording artist who has taken the job of rebranding the franchise pulled out all the stops when getting his personal wardrobe together for the special occasion. Here’s another shot of Drake’s retro Vince jersey inside his suit jacket. pic.twitter.com/IVeECCQtpb…

  2. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

  3. The Extra Pass: Quiet Jazz and Tuesday’s recaps

    Gordon Hayward

    For the most part, the Utah Jazz typically fly under the radar. Occasionally they’ll pop up after unexpectedly beating a contender, like they did last night with a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. But other than that? You won’t hear much out of Utah. No real trade rumors, no murmurs of unhappiness, no headline…

  4. Kobe Bryant thinks you should be voting younger guards into All-Star Game

    kobe all-star 2013

    You want Kobe Bryant to start in the All-Star Game… well, maybe not you personally, but people do. Like that guy in front of you in line at Starbucks this morning. Blame him. Fan voting has Kobe Bryant well out in front as a starting guard for the West in the 2014 All-Star Game. Chris…

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Lakers’ reporter Mike Trudell posted this — for the first time since his knee fracture Kobe Bryant was back in the gym taking shots. Notice these are not the kind of shots you take in a game (no lift, just standing jumpers) but it’s a start. Bryant can’t rush the bone healing process, plus he’s…

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

  7. Nowitzki is happy for Kobe, but his next contract will be different

    Nov 26, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Dallas Mavericks

    He’s the face of the franchise and the heart of the team’s marketing, but also an aging veteran in the final year of a massive contract, one that will determine what and how the team can move forward the next couple of years. Kobe Bryant? No. We’re taking Dirk Nowitzki with the Dallas Mavericks. But…

  8. Vince Carter says he was joking around about Dwight Howard “crybaby” crack

    Nov 22, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Dallas Mavericks

    Predictably, the Internet loved it when Vince Carter said Dwight Howard was the biggest crybaby he knew. After two years of drama as he left Orlando for Los Angeles, the L.A. for Houston, it’s safe to say fans outside H Town are pretty much done with all things Dwight. And Carter’s comments fit right into…

  9. Dwight Howard fined $25,000 for flipping ball at heckler

    Nov 21, 2013, 6:14 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    We told you this morning a fine was likely coming for this — the league gets very protective of the fans in the high-priced seats. While the Dallas Mavericks were making their fourth quarter comeback Wednesday night, a frustrated Dwight Howard tossed the ball at a fan heckling him. It wasn’t thrown, nobody got hurt,…

  10. Vince Carter on Dwight Howard: “The biggest crybaby I know”

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Dallas Mavericks

    Well, at least Dwight Howard didn’t toss a ball at Vince Carter… that we know of. Everyone has been piling on Dwight Howard this season — Shaq on TNT, Mark Cuban, Lakers fans, pretty much everyone outside Houston… And now you can add Vince Carter to the list. That is former teammate and fellow off-season…

  11. Kevin Love is putting up historically great numbers to begin the season

    Nov 9, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    A healthy Kevin Love was expected to make a world of difference for the Timberwolves this season, and through the first six games that’s been exactly what’s happened. Minnesota is off to a 4-2 start to the season, and Love’s dominance in multiple statistical categories is a big reason why. Love’s numbers aren’t just great…

  12. Vince Carter suspended one game for elbow to Steven Adams’ head

    Nov 8, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Vince Carter

    When this happened we told you Vince Carter could expect a league-mandated vacation, and that has come to pass. Dallas’ Carter has been suspended one game for throwing an intentional elbow to the head of Oklahoma City rookie Steven Adams. Carter will be out Friday night when the Mavericks take on the Timberwolves Carter was…

    Mavericks Thunder Basketball

    Vince Carter can expect a league-mandated one-game vacation for this, or at the very least he will pull out his checkbook. The veteran Mavericks guard was ejected for the third quarter play you see above. Oklahoma City’s Steven Adams caught Carter with an inadvertant elbow getting an offensive rebound, and Carter responded with an intentional…

  14. Wednesday Night NBA Grades: Larry Sanders out of action, and Tony Parker’s big fourth quarter

    Nov 7, 2013, 1:06 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    Our grades from Wednesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while securing funds in advance of twitter’s IPO … Larry Sanders. Apologies for starting things off on a negative note, and even more so for discussing someone who didn’t even play in Wednesday night’s action. But signing a contract worth a guaranteed $44 million…

  15. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 23, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Last season: For the first time in his career, Dirk Nowitzki missed a chunk of the season due to major knee surgery. Dallas started 12-15 without their star German then promptly dropped 8-of-9 after his return, putting them in a deep hole. The result was the players grew “.500 beards” they let grow like they…

  16. Mark Cuban thinks Monta Ellis will pass more, change game to win

    Oct 7, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Ah, preseason. It’s a time of unbridled optimism for fans, front office people, coaches and even owners. In Dallas they have put together an interesting but kind of ragtag roster — Dirk Nowitzki is the star, Jose Calderon the point, Monta Ellis to score points then guys like Shawn Marion, Vince Carter and Samuel Dalembert…

  17. Jae Crowder stops drinking beer and caffeine, eating bread and greasy food – and you’ll never guess what happens

    Oct 4, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    Jae Crowder

    Jae Crowder played power forward at Marquette, though at 6-foot-6, it seemed he’d have to switch positions in the pros. Quite often, players of that mold go undrafted. But Crowder plays with so much energy and displayed a decent 3-point shot, the Mavericks chose Crowder high in the second round last summer. Crowder had a…

  18. Retirement is not on Vince Carter’s mind

    Oct 4, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Vince Carter

    Midway through this coming NBA season (Jan. 26, to be exact) Vince Carter will turn 37. That’s a grandpa in NBA years. The guys once known for his explosiveness has found his groove as a veteran role player off the bench in Dallas. They needed a scorer, an instant-offense guy off the bench and that…

  19. Amir Johnson really, really, really loves Toronto

    Oct 4, 2013, 10:25 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    Understandably, Raptors fans are a little fearful of being jilted again. Chris Bosh, Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady all left Toronto via free agency or by forcing a trade. When the team’s top players – probably uncoincidentally Americans – all flee for the states, that’s no longer just a coincidence. And it doesn’t sit well…

  20. Mavericks plan to play Nowitzki, Carter about the same minutes as last season

    Sep 30, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

    Vince Carter

    Last season Vince Carter played just less than 26 minutes per game for Dallas, the season before almost the same. For a player who will turn 37 this season is that too many? And what should Dallas do with Dirk Nowitzki who played more than 31 minutes a game last season and will be age…

  21. Harrison Barnes hopes to participate in this year’s dunk contest

    Sep 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Harrison Barnes had more than his fair share of amazing slam dunk highlights during his rookie season with the Warriors — just check out the clip above, or this collection of the team’s best plays from last year for visual confirmation. It’s rare that we get the best in-game dunkers wanting to participate in All-Star…

  22. Tracy McGrady, reflecting on his career, says he wishes he would have stayed in Toronto

    Sep 14, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    tracy mcgrady vince carter raptors

    Tracy McGrady‘s NBA career didn’t really begin to blow up until after his third season, but most who observed his game closely knew it was coming. That was unfortunate for the Toronto Raptors, the team that drafted McGrady with the ninth overall pick in 1997, but who would lose him to Orlando in free agency…

    Tracy McGrady, one of the best and most versatile scorers of his generation, has decided to hang up his NBA sneakers. McGrady made the announcement on ESPN’s First Take.

  25. DeJuan Blair, Mavericks enforcer? It’s what Carlisle wants

    Aug 21, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    DeJuan Blair

    Rick Carlisle wants the Dallas Mavericks to be tougher this season. The man for the job is… DeJuan Blair? Coach Rick Carlisle says so, speaking at Blair’s introductory press conference, as reported by ESPNDallas.com. “DeJuan was a really important acquisition for us because Elton Brand didn’t return,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. “We need that…
