Three months from today, July 10, is the end of the moratorium period. It is that "dead zone" after the NBA draft that lets teams get their ducks in a row and start looking toward which free agents will help them rebuild or reload. On July 11, after what will be about nine solid days of rumors and source-driven "[player] intends to sign with [enter team name here]," players will actually begin to sign.   This summer, "[player]" was supposed to be "[game-changing superstar],"  but two of those guys, Chris Paul and Dwight Howard, each picked up their player options rather than opt out. That leaves Deron Williams as the only player at that superstar level left, which means other guys will undoubtedly slide in. Enter Eric Gordon and Roy Hibbert. Gordon is a very good player who has been a bit underrated because he played on the Clippers before anyone really cared to watch them. This year, he has been dealing with injuries, which, coupled with p...

Hornets' Jack out remainder of season

Hornets starting point guard Jarrett Jack will miss the rest of the season because of a stress fracture in his right foot. Jack had missed the Hornets' last three games before the club announced on Monday, hours before hosting the Los Angeles Lakers, that Jack would not recover in time to play before the season ended. Jack moved into a starting role when Chris Paul was traded...

Metta World Peace's horrible inbound pass

Metta World Peace throws the most questionable inbound pass that I have ever seen during Monday night’s 93-91 win over the New Orleans Hornets. Metta has done some weird things over the years but this has to be one of the craziest things I’ve seen from the NBAer formally know as Ron-Ron. “Only in the wild world of Peace” -Jalen Rose

Pacers get back on track, hold on against Raptors

Man that was close. After leading for most of the game and 10 points with 1:43 left in the game, the Raptors went nuts from downtown, hitting four 3-pointers, including three in the last 27 seconds. Fortunately, the Pacers kept their composure and George Hill and Paul George finished them off. Final score, 103-98.The most noteworthy thing to take from this game is that Darren Collison...

Hornets G Jack to miss rest of season with foot injury

New Orleans Hornets guard Jarrett Jack will miss the remainder of the season with a stress fracture in his right foot. The 22nd overall pick of the 2005 draft, Jack averaged 15.6 points and 6.3 assists for the Hornets this season. Greivis Vasquez will continue to start in his place for New Orleans, which sits in the basement of the Western Conference.

Pacers-Cavaliers Preview

Though the Indiana Pacers are firmly entrenched in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, they will not look ahead to the postseason. The Pacers hope to continue their April success by trying for a third consecutive road victory Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Indiana (35-22) concluded March by losing two of three, but won four in a row to begin April and five...

Comments from the other side - Pacers 4/7

These are so much more fun when we win.  The refs were atrocious in this game.  You know the refs are bad when the other team is talking about how many bad calls are going their way.  Loved that the Celtics won even playing 5 on 8 at times and didn't let the bad calls take them out of their game.  Tommy was in rare form last night about all those bad calls.  Obviously, the...

NBA Preview: Lakers at Hornets

The last time the Lakers and Hornets met, Kobe Bryant had by far one of the worst games of his career. He missed his first fifteen shots and went scoreless through the first three quarters, and yet it wasn’t enough for the Hornets to come out victorious. Kobe delivered in the fourth quarter, doing just enough down the stretch to save the Lakers from a disastrous home loss....

Raptors lose 3rd straight, Pacers prevail: 103-98

The Toronto Raptors visited the Indiana Pacers and their former teammate Leandro Barbosa, but came up on the losing end 103-98.The  Pacers seemed to have control throughout the game and had a 10 point cushion most of the way. The Raptors got within 3 points by a Calderon 3 pointer with 7.9 seconds left, making it 101-98, but the Pacers had final possession and put the game away...
