Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
The Denver Nuggets waived Ronny Turiaf as part of the trade that sent Nene to the Wizards in return for Turiaf and JaVale McGee. Now it looks as if Turiaf is set to join the Miami Heat. Turiaf only played in four games with the Wizards this season as he suffered a broken hand. Turiaf [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday that the Miami Heat agreed to sign 6-foot-10 power forward Ronny Turiaf for a pro-rated amount of the veteran’s minimum. Turiaf’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, said that the contract will include a player option for next season, unusual for buyout players.
This move makes sense on many levels. The recent absences of Chris Bosh...
The Miami Heat pick up free agent Ronny Turiaf in an effort to bolster their front line. Turiaf, 29, is a 6’10 forward/center who will bring a lot of energy to Miami. Ronny is a good enough to hold his own on both ends of the floor. A strong defender who is good enough on the offensive end not to be a liability. Joel Anthony is a better defender than Turiaf, but his lack...
The Denver Nuggets say reserve guard Rudy Fernandez will undergo surgery on his lower back that will sideline him for the rest of the regular season.
The team did not announce a date for the procedure.
Fernandez has been bothered by a strained lower back that caused him to miss a dozen games earlier this season. He recently returned to the lineup, only to have the ailment surface...
HE GOT GAME
Speculation has already started that it is very likely the Miami Heat will be very aggressive in its pursuit of the Celtics guard.
Wait, what?? It’s seems a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska, Ralston, is in Denver pleading for the Denver Nuggets franchise to set up a D-League affiliate in Nebraska. Ralston’s mayor and other city officials will travel Wednesday to Denver to pitch a plan to bring a development league team affiliated with professional basketball’s Nuggets to the [...]

LeBron James is in year 2 of his quest for 8 rings. The Miami Heat superstar has settled in nicely in Miami, and is having one of his best seasons yet. He’s also meeting plenty of fans…or is this case, a girl who is possibly more than a fan? We received a tip claiming LeBron is involved with the girl above. As to the level of involvement...
DENVER, March 22 – JaVale McGee scored in the last 5 seconds of the game last night, pushing the Denver Nuggets 116-115 over Detroit.
The Nuggets led by as many as 25 points in the second period, but then had to stage a late comeback to close out their nine-game homecourt series with a win.
It’s not like Detroit came up weak in any area and this game felt like at one point...
LeBron James looked like a real tough guy last night in the Heat's win over the Suns. Sort of. He collided with Grant Hill when both were going for a loose ball and took a shoulder in the head for his efforts. He supposedly was shaken up, but stayed in the game after some well rehearsed theatrics (such as laying prone on the floor.) Earlier in the game, he took a hard foul and...
Zach Lowe, the mastermind behind The Point Forward, wrote this magnificent article Tuesday, entitled New-look Nuggets face bumpy road, in which he speaks on how the Nene trade, Gallo’s injury, and the acquisition of JaVale Mcgee and Wilson Chandler won’t cement Denver to a long playoff run. I ABSOLUTELY AGREE!!! It’s not a huge surprise, I don’t just view Denver from [...]
Here's an update on the Celtics pursuit of a power forward/center. Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld throws Josh Powell's name into the mix:
The Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns are among the teams expressing interest in unrestricted free agent Josh Powell, according to sources close to the situation. The 29-year-old signed in China during the lockout, but now he’s back in...
The Miami Heat are the best team in the NBA. At least they are ate home, with a record of 20-2. Their 20th win came against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night, but it was far from easy. The Heat have dominated plenty of teams this year, and while the Suns coming to town might seem like an easy victory, Miami was in big trouble throughout the game.
Chris Bosh was the most consistent...
The Denver Nuggets are currently in playoff position in the tightly-packed Western Conference, though the Utah Jazz are closing in quickly.
Utah seeks its sixth straight victory Friday night when it hosts Denver, which begins a season-high seven-game road trip.
The Jazz (25-22) won their season-best fifth consecutive game Thursday, 103-102 at Sacramento after Al Jefferson scored...

MIAMI - When LeBron James was growing up and Grant Hill played at Duke, James wasn't a fan.
"No one liked Duke," James said.
But after Hill entered the NBA in 1994 and joined the Detroit Pistons, it became much cooler in his Akron, Ohio, neighborhood to dig him. And James went all out.
"I had his shoes when I was younger...
Two of the Celtics targets, Ronny Turiaf (Miami) and JJ Hickson (Blazers) are off the market. Boris Diaw (not that we really want him) has the Spurs and Suns at the top of his list.
When Portland signed JJ Hickson, they also waived Mehmet Okur, who might make a good target for the Celtics. Rumors are that the Celtics are also interested in Kyrylo Fesenko. He has been out...
MIAMI, March 20—The Miami Heat just don’t lose at home. Think that statement is wrong? After coming from behind in the fourth and going on a 17-0 run, they took out the Phoenix Suns 99-95
Out of the “Big 3,” it was once again Chris Bosh that anchored the team. His 29 points lead the group, followed by LeBron James’ 20 and Dwyane Wade’s 19. Udonis Haslem’s 15 was the...
