Vince Carter

  1. Magic GM Smith says no trades coming anytime soon

    Jan 31, 2012, 11:09 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Glen Davis

    Orlando has been a mess for the past couple weeks. Their offense has come apart at the seams — they scored 56 against Boston last week, just 69 against Philadelphia Monday, blew a 27 point lead in another Boston game and got blown out by the Hornets last week. They are struggling. Mightily. This is…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Orlando with another bad outing

    Jan 31, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, J.J. Redick

    What you missed while realizing that Homeland Security is monitoring your tweets…. Clippers 112, Thunder 100: There was a lot more to this than just Blake Griffin dunking on Kendrick Perkins, which is why it was our game of the night. Sixers 74, Magic 69: The Magic were just terrible shooting the ball in this…

  3. Cuban believes this year’s Mavs are better than last year’s

    Jan 19, 2012, 10:46 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Mark Cuban felt the heat after he let Tyson Chandler, J.J. Barea, Caron Butler, DeShawn Stevenson go. Brining in Lamar Odom has not worked out as planned and Dallas got off to a rocky 8-7 start after two heartbreaking losses in Los Angeles (veterans Derek Fisher and Chauncey Billups did them with game winners on…

  4. Thursday And-1 links: Glen Davis drops his shorts

    Jan 19, 2012, 11:27 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic

    Welcome to our look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Glen Davis, you need to keep your pants on when talking to the ref. It’s pretty much an automatic technical. What are the Sixers doing right…

  5. Wednesday And-1 links: Cuban is still spending on something

    Jan 18, 2012, 11:22 AM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Welcome to our look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Mark Cuban is going to spend about $1.4 million on Mavericks championship rings. He’ll do it without blinking. He’d gladly do it again next year, but…

  6. Vince Carter day-to-day after foot injury on final shot

    Jan 17, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    vince-carter-550

    Vince Carter was the guy who got the shot to try and tie the Lakers Monday night and send a dramatic yet sloppy game to overtime. He missed. And instantly after he landed he started limping. While the Lakers celebration raged on around them the trainers came out to check on Carter’s foot, even Mark…

  7. Video: Two fans just sit down on Mavericks’ bench

    Jan 11, 2012, 10:54 AM EDT

    fans on Mavs bench grab

    We’ve all done it. Left our not so great seats, gotten a beer and then when we walk back into the arena you move down to better seats that some company couldn’t give away to a client or secretary for the night. But there are limits to how far down you should go. Like, say,…

  8. Otis Smith says nothing has changed with Dwight’s situation. Oh, and he’s receiving threats from fans.

    Jan 8, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    Otis Smith, Orlando Magic

    Orlando General Manager Otis Smith sat down with the Orlando Sentinel this weekend, and as far as Dwight Howard‘s situation, which rumors had suggested Howard having rescinded his trade request, uh… yeah, status quo: Sentinel: Has anything changed with Dwight’s situation? Smith: No. Sentinel: Has he pulled back the trade request? Smith: No. Sentinel: Has…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the living upsets

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks during a time out in the closing minutes of his team's loss to the Atlanta Hawks in their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while watching Oregon and Wisconsin score another touchdown…. Hawks 100, Heat 92: Miami was zoned out again. The Hawks went to a zone defense a lot starting in the second quarter and it stalled out the Heat, who shot just 37 percent in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Tracy McGrady alone had 13…

  10. Report: Mavericks to add Yi Jianlian

    Dec 31, 2011, 10:27 PM EDT

    Jianlian_Yi

    The Mavericks continue to search out new ways to improve their team after getting their first win Friday over Toronto. ESPN.com reports that the Mavs will be adding Chinese forward Yi Jianlian. The deal is likely to be finalized within the next 48 hours, sources said. After looking mostly at centers to fortify their frontcourt…

  11. Baseline to baseline recaps: Kevin Durant is an assassin

    Dec 30, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder

    What you missed while watching an octopus pick the BCS matchups…. Lakers 99, Knicks 82: We broke this down as our game of the night. Thunder 104, Mavericks 102: This was easily the best game the Mavericks have played this season. The ball movement was back, the clever veteran plays were there. Delonte West said…

  12. Video: Kevin Durant’s ridiculous game winner over Mavs

    Dec 29, 2011, 11:34 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Seven

    Dallas played the best game they have all season. With a chance to take the lead late Dirk Nowitzki made a smart play drawing the defense in and kicking to Vince Carter for a wide open three. The Mavs were up 102-101 with 1.4 seconds left. Ballgame? Not after this Kevin Durant shot. Thunder win…

  13. What is wrong with 0-2 Dallas? A lot of things.

    Dec 27, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks have started out 0-2. An ugly 0-2. They have been blown out by the Heat and the Nuggets on their home court, losing by a combined 33 points (and it wasn’t really that close, garbage time runs have made it look better than it was). What in the name…

  14. Miami 105 Dallas 94: Heat unleash the Nightmare on Christmas for Mavs

    Dec 25, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    heat_mavericks2

    A three-part preface, to begin, before we cover the Heat’s shelling/drilling/slaughter of the Mavericks. It’s the first game of the season, and the first game of the season is never indicative of how the season will go for either team, even if it seems like it in retrospect. Th Celtics beat the Heat in the…

  16. Can the Dallas Mavericks repeat as NBA champions?

    Dec 16, 2011, 5:16 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    After a trying, decade-long run that consistently placed them along the title’s periphery, the Dallas Mavericks finally claimed their first ever NBA championship last June. The fact that Dirk and the Mavs are the reigning champs still seems like a hazy dream — a vision almost too similar to a storybook to be real, and an…

  17. Friday morning one liners (so long Brandon Roy)

  18. NBA Season Preview: Phoenix Suns

    Dec 15, 2011, 5:12 PM EDT

    nash-gentry-preview

    Last season: 40-42, good for 10th place in the West, and six games out of the playoff picture. Head Coach: Alvin Gentry Key Departures: Vince Carter was waived by the team and was picked up by Dallas. Aaron Brooks signed to play in China just before the lockout was resolved, and while the Suns still…

  19. NBA Season Preview: Dallas Mavericks

    Dec 15, 2011, 2:53 AM EDT

    Dallas players Carter, Marion, Nowitzki, Odom, Kidd, and Terry pose for photos during media day at the team's headquarters in Dallas, Texas

    Last season: 57-25, good enough for the third seed in the West, but then all the pieces clicked at the right time. The Mavericks rode a great post season from Dirk Nowitzki plus key contributions from Jason Terry, Tyson Chandler, J.J. Barea and others — they got a depth of contributions no other team could…

  20. The tangled web of Chris Paul, David Stern, and the blockbuster trade that wasn’t

    Dec 12, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    Chris-Paul-lakers-trade-killed

    Last Friday, David Stern — acting as some amalgam of both owner of the New Orleans Hornets and commissioner of the NBA — put the kibosh on a trade that would’ve sent Chris Paul to the Lakers, brought Luis Scola, Kevin Martin, and Lamar Odom to the Hornets, and shipped Pau Gasol to the Rockets.…

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. Don’t be shocked if the Chicago Bulls try to get in the Dwight Howard mix, but it is a longshot. If you read on thing today it should be this: Lakers trainer Gary Vitti…

  22. Suns training camp notes: High hopes for Telfair, improvement for Lopez, dealing with Pietrus

  23. Chicago Bulls making serious run at Rip Hamilton

    Dec 10, 2011, 11:56 AM EDT

    Rip Hamilton

    This comes as a surprise to just about nobody. But it also seems a good fit. And destined to happen. The Bulls are making a hard charge at Richard Hamilton to become their new two-guard, reports Aggrey Sam at CSNChicago.com. Rip Hamilton was bought out by the Pistons on Friday and is a free agent.…

  24. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

  25. Report: Vince Carter headed to Dallas Mavericks

    Dec 9, 2011, 9:34 PM EDT

    vince-carter-suns

    As expected, early on Friday the Phoenix Suns made it official and bought out Vince Carter’s contract. He was owed $18 million and he’s just not that guy anymore. So they bought him out for $4 million and Carter became a free agent. The only question was where would he land. How about Dallas? That…
