That NBA Lottery Pick:
For today’s ESPN on ABC Sunday telecast between the Los Angeles Lakers/Chicago Bulls, former NBA referee Steve Javie joined Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy to call the game.
In the first quarter, a graphic was produced showing the three biggest myths of officiating according to Javie.
One of them happened to be superstar calls and well, below the video of Javie saying that they don’t exist:

BEST OF MAXIM

Kendall Marshall may not be the highest leaper in the league but that doesn’t stop him from being effective.
Marshall’s shot is so strange-looking and always seems vulnerable to being blocked, though he’s stroking the three very efficiently: He was 3-for-3 from deep on Sunday and is on track to the be NBA’s leader in three-point field goal percentage.
5TH QUARTER MAG 5TH QUARTER MAG - Exclusive sports rumors and gossipSteve Nash missed 32 games last season due to injury. This season, he has only played in 9 total games..Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash could retire at the end of this season
With Steve Nash getting hurt once again against the Chicago Bulls the other night, it seems pretty clear to everyone except Nash, that he should hang them up. It’s sad that it has come to this for this once prolific player, but this is how it typically goes for most players, be they superstars or ordinary players. Father time is still undefeated, and no more is it clear than it...
Steve Nash left the Chicago Bulls-Los Angeles Lakers game in the third quarter after a collision that led to some kind of leg injury. Though the seriousness of the injury is unknown at this point, it is the same spot on the left leg which Nash had surgery on last season. This is yet another setback for 40-year-old Nash, who was in the midst of a comeback after missing most of the...
What words come to mind when you think of the Los Angeles Lakers this season? I would have to include: sad, resourceful, injured, old, or any of the like. They’re hard to watch, but the hardest part is that you have no idea which team you’re going to see. Not one Laker has played in every single game this season, so I guess we could add “changing” to that running list.
The failure of the Marquis Teague experiment has yet to affect the Bulls.
The impact is coming this summer, though.
After drafting Teague in 2012 to be the backup point guard to Derrick Rose, the Bulls traded him last month. With Rose injured, that has left them with Kirk Hinrich and D.J. Augustin, both of whom will be eligible for free agency this offseason.
The good news is...
After receiving consistent playing time in all three games of the Los Angeles Lakers' 2-1 trip, Chris Kaman admitted that it was the first time he had fun playing basketball in a long time.
But he also admitted that if he doesn't make it past the upcoming Feb. 20 trade deadline and finish out the season as a Laker, it won't faze him.
"I don't care, I honestly...
Who knew that Joakim Noah was an expert at jab stepping and pump faking? Well, he may not be, since Chris Kaman isn’t exactly the best defender in the NBA, but this sure was a beautiful move. Noah sold the shot fake to Kaman and then beat him to the basket for an emphatic one-hand finish.
Noah’s having his best season of his career in Derrick Rose’s absence and should sustain...
Mediocrity met it’s match. The Chicago Bulls have been on Western Conference road trip for more than a week now and it’s showing in the results. The Bull only won one of their games this week. Their All-Star Joakim Noah, was ejected and got lucky to not be suspended during one of their three losses. Even worse...
Steve Nash is just old and breaking down.
Not much else you can say.
“I just took a knee to the spot where I broke my leg,” Nash said. “Ever since I did that I’ve had a lot of nerve issues there and it just really flared up on me. I don’t think it’s going to be a long-term thing at all. Hopefully it’s something that can just settle down this week, hopefully by Tuesday...
Steve Nash will evaluate his nerve irritation injury on Monday after being hit in the exact same spot by Kirk Hinrich in Sunday's loss to the Chicago Bulls.
"I just took a knee to the spot I broke my leg," Nash told reporters. "It just really flared up on me. I don't think it's going to be long-term thing."
Nash has dealt with nerve issues over the...
Most of you will remember very well the shock that we had almost a year ago today when the news that Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss had passed away due to his fight with cancer. The news was brought with such sadness due to the man that he was and what he had achieved for himself, his family, friends and of course the game of basketball.
It had been a fairly well...
Poor Lakers. They just keep getting their games flexed since everyone is hurt including Kobe Bryant.
This is the right move though if you want to watch a better game. The Lakers are always entertaining though.
Lakers-Nets on Feb. 23 will no longer be on ESPN. Instead the game will be Rockets-Suns.

You don't need to be a parent to know that this picture of Los Angeles Lakers teammates Nick Young and Jordan Farmar at the USC vs. UCLA game Saturday night with the kiddos is hands down the cutest picture that will be taken at an NCAA basketball game this season.Loading...
Videobombing has become an art for some teams and fans, but I don't think there has been one quite like the one this evil leprechaun succeeded in pulling off after the Lakers lost to the Bulls Sunday. Hey, with the way the Lakers are playing fans have to get creative when it comes to having fun at games!@cjzero/TwitterLoading...
