    Drew Gooden, Nick Young

    It started with Drew Gooden, who had been frustrated with the perceived lack of calls going his way. There was 2:14 left in the eventual Wizards 117-107 win over the Lakers Friday night when Gooden got tangled up with the Lakers’ Nick Young and the Wizards forward wrapped up Young’s arm and yanked it as Gooden…

    Golden State Warriors v Portland Trail Blazers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching your bracket go up in flames on the first day… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. Credit the Milwaukee Bucks, they would not roll over, they fought and made Golden State work for it. Stephen Curry was the guy that was not going to…

  7. John Wall wants Wizards to become Bullets again

    Mar 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Washington Wizards

    In 1997, The Washington Bullets became the Washington Wizards (though not directly due to the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, as many believe). Wizards, a corny nickname with no local significance, hasn’t really caught on among the city’s passionate basketball fans. But it won’t change back to Bullets for two main reasons: 1. Most fans have…

  8. Tuesday NBA grades: LeBron reminds Cleveland what they’re missing

    Mar 19, 2014, 2:44 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking it’s crazy that “Lost” is 10 years old… LeBron James, Miami Heat. Nobody likes it when their ex-girlfriend walks into the party looking smoking hot. LeBron pretty much did that to the Cavaliers on Tuesday night — he had 25 points in the…

    Manu Ginobili, Derrick Favors

    The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

  13. Paul Pierce mocks the unnecessary screaming of Wizards’ Trevor Booker (VIDEO)

    Mar 15, 2014, 10:30 PM EST

    Paul Pierce

    There are plenty of players who make exaggerated vocal noise during the course of an NBA game, with Carlos Boozer of the Bulls perhaps heading up that very long list. While it’s accepted to a certain extent, it’s also nice to see a veteran of the game point out just how ridiculous it is. During…

  14. John Wall fined $15,000 for comments on officials/Kemba Walker

    Mar 13, 2014, 4:55 PM EST

    John Wall, LeBron James

    “I didn’t touch him. All he did was scream. The ref gave him calls all night because he was screaming.” That was from John Wall talking about Kemba Walker after the Bobcats beat the Wizards Wednesday night. The league is not fond of people questioning their officials’ integrity (regardless of cause) and on Thursday came down…

  15. John Wall: Kemba Walker gets calls because he screams

    Mar 13, 2014, 11:45 AM EST

    John Wall, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    With the Bobcats clinging to a three-point lead over the Wizards midway through the fourth quarter Wednesday, Kemba Walker rose for a corner 3-pointer. John Wall appeared to contest the shot cleanly, but the refs called a foul. Why? Wall, via J. Michael of CSN Washington: “I didn’t touch him. All he did was scream,”…

    Marcin Gortat; DeMar DeRozan

    “Quick, 15-20 seconds, throw few punches, then referees jump in and break this thing up.”

  19. Wizards’ Martell Webster gets past Giannis Antetokounmpo for the fast break slam (VIDEO)

    Mar 9, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Martell Webster

    This wasn’t exactly a dunk on the Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, but he was certainly in the vicinity. Martell Webster got loose on the break, and was quick enough to the rim to avoid the long rookie, but threw the dunk down with such force that he landed somewhat awkwardly on his backside.

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Pharrell Williams loves the Arby’s hat… • Roy Hibbert got a new…

  21. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EST

    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…

  22. Bobcats waive Ben Gordon after deadline for him to join playoff roster

    Mar 2, 2014, 3:30 PM EST

    Ersan Ilyasova, Ben Gordon

    A year ago, the Charlotte Bobcats tried to trade Ben Gordon – and apparently couldn’t. A week ago, they tried to buy out Gordon – and apparently couldn’t. But they could waive him. Bobcats news release: Charlotte Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins announced today that the team has requested waivers on guard Ben…

    Feb 28, 2014, 3:05 AM EST

    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…

  24. Wizards go to triple-overtime to beat Raptors

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:04 AM EST

    Washington Wizards v Toronto Raptors

    This is why you buy NBA League-pass, so that while everyone else is stuck watching masked LeBron James beating up on the hapless Knicks, you can flip over and watch Washington’s John Wall do this to Toronto’s Kyle Lowry to force a second overtime. There would go on to be three overtimes in what was…

  25. Washington Wizards reportedly tried hard to trade for Jameer Nelson

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:12 AM EST

    Jameer Nelson, Jonas Valanciunas

    It was no secret the Washington Wizards needed point guard help behind John Wall. It’s also no secret the rebuilding Orlando Magic are no longer a great fit for 32-year-old Jameer Nelson. The two teams would have made sense as trade partners before last week’s deadline. In fact, the Wizards reportedly really wanted to be…
