This quote from Steve Nash himself, can’t be good for Laker fans to hear:
“I think three or four weeks ago, people would have said, ‘Oh, it will get better, right now, I definitely don’t think there’s a guarantee it will, so the only remedy is to continue to work hard and give yourself a chance for it to get better….
“I obviously think with time — and that might mean...
While many media members buddy up with Dwight Howard because of his outgoing personality, Jeff Van Gundy is not falling for the act.

Steve Nash and Metta World Peace have only been teammates for a few games but already their bond is tight. Perhaps a bit too tight.
During the Lakers recent loss to the Rockets, Nash needed to dry off a bit which included his sweaty, damp, and probably smelly armpits. Not a problem, any athelete needs to dry off. It is understandable but what isn't is when same player hands...
Apparently this video was made to spread the word about Canada Basketball’s 90th Anniversary as Spurs’ sharp shooter Matt Bonner shows off an arsenal of trick shots in the team’s practice facility in addition to some pretty epic celebration moves.

After failing to break out of their road funk despite Tony Parker's heroics, the San Antonio Spurs look to continue their dominance at home.
The Spurs appear primed to get back in the win column and capture their 12th straight home victory Sunday night when they meet the slumping Minnesota Timberwolves.

This is one of my favorite non-basketball moments during an NBA broadcast (my favorite is still the “good job, good effort” kid).
For those who don’t know, the NBA has scheduled TV time-out in every game somewhere within the 5:00 and 2:00 marks (and 8:00 marks in then 2nd and 4th quarters). At 5:09, there was some confusion as to whether a time out should have been a TV time...
