    Barea of Puerto Rico and NBA team Dallas Mavericks celebrates with his teammates after their win over Mexico during their men's final basketball game at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara

    Welcome to our morning 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). Who are the guys in the NBA not nearly as tall as listed? Well, if J.J. Barea is 6’0” then I am looking down on…

  2. Thursday And-1 links (with some Portland love)

    Dec 29, 2011, 10:46 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers forward Gerald Wallace reacts to his team's loss against the Dallas Mavericks in Portland, Oregon

    Welcome to our morning 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). They love them some Gerald Wallace in Portland, and he is learning to love it there. With Wallace and LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland could be very,…

  3. Baseline to baseline recaps: Celtics fall, Knicks fall, Heat almost join them

    Dec 29, 2011, 9:39 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    What you missed while worried about what a bad year this was for elephants… Oklahoma City 98, Memphis 95: This playoff rematch was our game of the night. New Orleans 97, Celtics 78: Don’t hit the panic button yet, Celtics fans. Still too early. But if you want to feel uncomfortable and a little ill,…

  4. Jeff Green hanging with Celtics, happy he’ll get to play again

    Dec 28, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green could be devastated, sitting around his house cursing the fates and wondering what might have been. He was to be a key cog for a Celtics team looking to hang a banner, instead he is out for the season following heart surgery. Instead, Green is in a pretty good place. He spoke with…

  5. Wednesday And-1 links, where Nets fans want Dwight Howard

    Dec 28, 2011, 11:07 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Welcome to our morning 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). Nets fans started a chant of “we want Howard” at the team’s home opener Tuesday. No, Deron Williams did not start it. As far as…

  6. Andray Blatche wants you all to calm down, he’s not mad at coach

    Dec 27, 2011, 4:10 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Houston Rockets

    It’s all so simple. Andray Blatche just wants the ball in the post. So he says we shouldn’t read his comments after last night’s game as calling out his coach. And teammates. Here is the quote. “I said that I need the ball in the paint to be effective. You can’t keep having me pick…

  7. Andray Blatche calls out his coach, wants ball in the post more

    Dec 27, 2011, 9:29 AM EST

    Andray Blatche

    Andray Blatche is not happy with how the Wizards are using him. The only real surprise there is it came after only one game rather than midway through the season. After the Wizards come-from-ahead loss Tuesday against the Nets (how do you blow a 20-point lead against the Nets?), Blatche said he needs the ball…

  8. Baseline to baseline recaps: Dallas has some issues

    Dec 27, 2011, 7:48 AM EST

    Chris Andersen, Vince Carter,

    What you missed while out celebrating Boxing Day…. Kings 100, Lakers 91: We covered this one already in our game of the night. Nuggets 115, Mavericks 93: Mavericks forward Sean Williams threw up when subbed out in the fourth quarter of this game, which got a lot of laughs on the Mavs bench but pretty…

  9. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks fall, Heat race into top spot

    Dec 26, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Only one third of the teams in the NBA have played a game, but it was enough to move some teams around and give us a new No. 1. 1. Heat (1-0, last week ranked No. 2). They had 100 possessions in their opening game, nine more than they averaged last season. If they do…

  10. Monday And-1 links (formerly one morning liners)

    Kobe Bryant

    New name, same drill. This is our morning 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). Kobe Bryant had experimental work done on his ankle last summer as well as his knee. At this point if you…

    Dec 19, 2011, 12:07 PM EST

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

    Welcome to our inaugural power rankings for the 2011-12 NBA season (a regular Monday feature at PBT). These are fun if ultimately meaningless — in the NBA we have a playoff system to decide who is best (are you listening college football?). This is a preseason ranking, so remember that when you get mad about…

  14. Josh Howard signs on with Utah Jazz

    Dec 15, 2011, 9:07 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Utah Jazz have decided to Roll the dice on Josh Howard. Howard has signed with the Jazz for this season (ESPN’s Chris Broussard broke the story). Utah has C.J. Miles at the small forward but a healthy Howard brings a lot more offensive weaponry and points to the picture. Healthy is the question mark…

    walljohn_davidliamkyle_getty

    Last season: 23-59, the fourth lowest win total in the entire league. Head Coach: Flip Saunders, who may or may not be the best fit for this talented but undisciplined group of young players. Key Departures: None yet, although Nick Young, who improved offensively last season, is a restricted free agent. Michael Lee of the…

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. The 50 worst haircuts in NBA history. Vladimir Radmanovic is way too low at No. 12. Despite the reports to the contrary, the Nets do not have a deadline to get Dwight Howard or…

    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…

  19. Dwight Howard wants out of Orlando because they didn’t let him run the team badly

    Dec 12, 2011, 8:00 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    See, here’s my problem. Carmelo Anthony had it right. For all his ego, for all the manipulation, for holding the Nuggets and the news cycle hostage for six months, he had it right. It was quiet. He never committed to the Nuggets, kept it quiet, didn’t make it worse. Melo knows it’s a business and…

    NBA basketball spaulding

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least.

    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…

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not other posts here at PBT. What if the Hornets traded Chris Paul to the Magic? That would be interesting. The Nets are going very hard after Nene. New Orleans has made bringing back David West its top priority. The Lakers might consider Delonte West…
