NBA 24/7 365:
Los Angeles Lakers
Portland Trail Blazers
New York Knicks
Ball Don’t Lie: Steve Nash may want to consider bottling his pit stank and marketing it as cologne. He’s already got one prospective customer who could double as a famous spokesperson in teammate Metta World Peace. The product would likely fly off the shelves considering the great influence of the Los Angeles Lakers, an organization that has popularized such things as Matt Barnes’ wife.
The Basketball Jones: For god’s sake, people, stop driving your cars into LaMarcus Aldridge’s black Ferraris and limited edition Mercedes Benzes!
Hoop Chalk: NBA247365.COM contributor Jacob Frankel goes into great detail regarding Minnesota’s devastating Pek-and-roll. I know, I know, I’ve hammered this subject to death, but Jacob actually provides diagrams and stuff. I mostly just pretend Pekovic is a mythological character with superhuman physical abilities.
USA Today: For some reason, the Grizzlies seem determined to trade Rudy Gay for a collection of lesser players. Rumored destinations for Rudy include pretty much everywhere, but two that I’ve heard mentioned repeatedly are Phoenix (Jared Dudley, picks) and Toronto (Jose Calderon). Both deals would appear to be salary dumps.
Sheridan Hoops: Phil Jackson tells Chris Sheridan that he has “no intention” to coach another game of NBA basketball. Congratulations, PJ Carlesimo. Sorry, everybody else.
8 Points, 9 Seconds: Paul George was an absolute beast against the Heat last night, scoring 29 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. He was so good, in fact, that ESPN’s resident Pacers blog gave him a grade of A+ for his efforts. Let me assure you, folks, George was insanely impressive in this game. Remember when LeBron basically shut him down for the duration of a playoff series? Yeah, well, George was dribble driving right by him, posting him up… just doing all sorts of things. Considering how well he’s played over the past month and half, this performance truly demonstrates the player he’s become.
TMZ: Ty Lawson tells an amateur camera man that he told Kobe “it is what it is,” and that the Nuggets were “going to bust [the Lakers'] ass, and they gon’ deal with it.” While the Nuggets did indeed bust the Lakers’ ass, I have a hard time believing that Ty Lawson said that to Kobe. Mostly because Ty Lawson never would’ve lived to tell that tale.
The Awesome Boston: New, more exciting footage of Carmelo Anthony’s postgame spat with Kevin Garnett has emerged. In this clip, the two players can he heard hurling obscenities at each other over a crowd of 15 or 20 people, rather than just standing around doing nothing. What, you didn’t think they were actually going to lay a hand on one another, did you? C’mon son! These two are as fugazy as they come.
The Point Forward: Andre Iguodala, Chuck Hayes, Nick Young, Jared Dudley, and Will Barton talk about some fun stuff, such as their recollections of their first slam dunks. According to Swaggy P, his first jam came at the expense of his big brother.
Twitter: Well, fans, so much for that Gerald Green vs James White dunk contest. According to Zach Lowe, Gerald ain’t gonna enter. This, to me, is a disappointment of catastrophic proportions. WE WERE THIS CLOSE!

Steve Nash is known for dishing out some nasty assists — hence the phrase, ‘make it Nashty.’ This time, however, the word “nasty” is taken in its literal sense.
During last night’s loss to the Houston Rockets, Nash was wiping off the sweat from his body in a timeout and, without even thinking about it, Nash threw his armpit sweat-covered towel to teammate Metta World...
Man, it seems nothing is going right for the Lakers as of late. As mentioned previously, the Lakers dropped the squad’s fourth-straight game on Tuesday, losing to the Houston Rockets. Now comes video of a somewhat unsettling occurrence during the same game.
During a break in the action, perspiring point guard Steve Nash took a moment to dry himself off with a towel. Once he...
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...
Reality is slowly beginning to set in for the Lakers. Firing Mike Brown wasn’t the answer, Kobe and Dwight are fighting on and off the court, and the floundering Lakers are in danger of missing the playoffs.
While some still hold out hope that things will turn around in time for a magical ride through the playoffs, Steve Nash is not so optimistic. In speaking to the LA Times, Nash...
The majority of basketball fans wish bad things upon Metta World Peace, but hoping the Laker gets armpit sweat rubbed all over his face is a little much — and quite disturbing.
But, since it did happen, let’s all take a moment to watch video evidence and laugh at the artist formerly known as Ron Artest.

The walk to the team bus was short but still left eons for Steve Nash to ponder the imponderable.
Will the Lakers miss the playoffs?
"I think about it every day," he said in a quiet moment after their latest loss, Wednesday in San Antonio. "We've got to make some serious ground up here quickly. We're in deep, and we've got to find a way to scratch and...

The Mike D'Antoni error is in full swing in the Los Angeles. Remember when Steve Nash's return was going to save the Lakers? Ah, seems like only yesterday. Well, it was only about two weeks ago. And now we have reports that Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard almost got into it in the locker room. Welcome to LA, the land of soap operas.Since Steve Nash returned from his leg injury...

If you’ve ever wanted to see a bear try to slam dunk while being attacked by a gang of sharks, now’s your chance.Conan O’Brien put together a dunk contest of mascots that should never dunk, and it’s … almost majestic. The aforementioned bear takes on a giant thing of non-dairy creamer, the Olive Garden never-ending pasta bowl, a CD discount bin, and more. I won’t spoil...
The Suns have long been associated with the "Seven Seconds or Less" offense that Mike D'Antoni brought in when he was hired as head coach. That has become synonymous with the Suns.
Since D'Antoni was let go, there have been several coaches trying to bring a different tact and add a little defense to the team to get them over the top. It worked to some extent in...
