Video: Howard 'Jump-Starts' 'Big Baby'

A Dim Light For The Bobcats

A year ago, Kemba Walker was preparing for a major conference battle against No. 7 Villanova. Connecticut was 15-2 and the eight-ranked team in the country. He was battling with his teammates on Connecticut for a chance to win the Big East, something the team would do in a memorable run to the conference title, and eventually a national championship. Walker scored 24 points, grabbed...

The Starting Five: Spurs Embarrassed, CP3's Impact, & Orlando As Buyers

Every morning, we'll give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day. 1:  "We should be embarrassed." That's San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich after his team blew a 17 point third quarter lead against the Miami Heat.  Oh, and it was part of a 39-12 Miami third quarter en route to a 120-98 demolition of the Spurs.  In less than 24...

Dwayne Wade sprained his right ankle on Friday against the Denver Nuggets. He hasn't practiced since sustaining that injury, and as a result the Miami Heat announced late Tuesday morning that Wade will be not be participating in Tuesday night's clash with the San Antonio Spurs.

Patrick Ewing's Advice For Dwight Howard

With all the trade talk flying around about where Dwight Howard is going to end up, it seems highly unlikely that the Orlando Magic big man will stick around southern Florida. One of the teams Howard is asking to be traded to is the New Jersey Nets, who will be the Brooklyn Nets soon enough, but someone who knows a thing or two about playing under the bright lights of the Big Apple...

USA Basketball Announces Finalists For 2012 Olympics In London

It was only about a decade ago when NBA All Stars seemed to avoid Olympic participation like the Great Plague of 14th Century Europe. Two consecutive gold medals later though, including a first place Olympic finish in 2008 by the NBA's elite, and it's now cool again to play for Team USA in international competition. Everybody's doing it these days too, or at least everybody...

Kendrick Perkins Tried To Put 'Emotional Breakdown' Behind Him In Return To Boston

 When it comes to homecomings on Monday night, Lamar Odom stole Kendrick Perkins’ thunder – or Oklahoma City Thunder in this case.  But while Odom’s Dallas Mavericks fell to the Los Angeles Lakers in his first return to the Staples Center since being sold up the river to the  Mavs, it’s clear Boston still belongs to Perkins and the Celtics no doubt miss a little bit of...

Lamar Odom on Being Traded By Lakers: "It Hurt My Feelings"

Even in professional sports, where the greatest athletes in the world are compensated like CEO's of Fortune 500 companies to play a child's game, sometimes feelings still get hurt for reasons that have nothing to do with bank accounts. Lamar Odom was once figured to be a key piece in a trade that sent Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers. That trade didn't happen, but...

Video: Duncan's 'Pythons' Are Sick

The San Antonio Spurs have largely been labeled as a bland team.  Tim Duncan shows close to no emotion on the court, and the team as a whole is so mechanical that they rarely provide highlight-worthy plays that will make fans ohh and ahh.But this latest commercial starring the Spurs' "Big 3" of Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili shows the lighter side of the trio...

Knicks Eyeing Return For Davis

I guarantee when the season started, the New York Knicks didn’t think they’d be 6-6 after 12 games. After acquiring Tyson Chandler in the offseason to go along with Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire, the Knicks looked like they could contend for one of the top spots in the East. Now, after a disappointing .500 start to the season, the Knicks are hoping Baron Davis can...

The Los Angeles Clippers' point guard corp is getting thinner as Chris Paul is the latest to be hit with the injury bug.

Kobe Bryant Is On A Mission... But What Is It Exactly?

Kobe Bryant is, as they say, on fire.  For three straight games, Kobe Bryant has launched 31 shots towards the rim.  For three straight games, enough of those 31 shots have fallen to give him at least 40 points.  He has scored a total of 120 points, going 47-93 from the field, 5-13 from 3, and 31-34 from the line.  The Lakers have won all three of those games.   The Lakers...

'Can't Get No Worse' For The Knicks? It Just Did

The ascent of the New York Knicks back into national relevancy (not manufactured relevancy) hit a road bump early on this season. With Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler in the front court, New York had some girth on the front court to go with the offensive genius of Mike D'Antoni. New York's start has been less than fast. For D'Antoni it must...

Gerald Wallace Is Not Looking For Extension This Season In Portland

That headline specifically does not mean that Gerald Wallace doesn't want to play in Portland, is unhappy on the Blazers, or wouldn't eventually re-sign with them either. Even though he doesn't want to talk about a possible contract extension with team officials anymore. It just means that the new CBA suggests the more financially beneficial decision is to not agree...

Iman Shumpert Is Not Shy About Shooting (But He Should Be)

It's safe to say Knicks fans were excited about Iman Shumpert coming into this season.  And why not?  He's athletic and he can do a little bit of everything out there.  But he's doing a lot of one thing:  shooting.  And a relative lack of success doing so is tempering a little of the enthusiasm in New York.  Shumpert is 10-35 in his last two games.  Last night...

OK so maybe the Boston Celtics haven't gotten out of the gates on the right foot in this shortened season but Celtics' GM Danny Ainge is not pleased at all with the team's performance so far. So displeased is Danny that he has threatened to make roster changes if Boston doesn't show marked improvement before the trading deadline. “I’m committed to the guys as...

It didn't look good for Al Horford and his Atlanta Hawks when the All Star big man went down during the first quarter of Wednesday's game at Indiana. It looked pretty bad actually. Reports released by the Hawks medical staff today don't look good either, as the team has announced that arguably their best player will be set to miss upwards of four months recovering from...
