Hornets’ Rivers breaks hand

The New Orleans Hornets lost more than just a game to the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night. They’ve likely lost Austin Rivers for the season. The rookie guard will miss four to six weeks with a broken hand. Rivers jammed his hand on the body of teammate Greivis Vasquez while going for a...

Lakers make epic comeback

  The Lakers looked awful for three and a half quarters at New Orleans. They were down as much as 25 points. It got to the point where I looked elsewhere on NBA League Pass. I then tuned back in with the Lakers trailing 102-88. Little did I know, the Hornets wouldn’t score again....

  I love to say I told you so….. On Sunday, from All-Star Weekend in Houston, I reported that the Golden State Warriors were eager to make a move after losing five straight games. Today we learn that significant talks between them and the New Orleans Hornets are indeed taking place. The Warriors are talking...

Report: Hornets may trade Gordon

  The New Orleans Hornets are showing a willingness to engage in talks for Eric Gordon, according to a rival executive. Gordon’s agent, Rob Pelinka, has been more than open to the idea of a trade for his client as well. His client signed with the Phoenix Suns last summer and his comments after the Hornets...

The Hornets are on the rise

  The only bad thing about the New Orleans Hornets lately is that they haven’t changed their name to the ‘Pelicans’ yet. Hopefully the Charlotte Bobcats will slide them some royalties later. NOLA has been quietly racking up wins on your NBA League Pass, winning 7 of their last 11 games. That stretch also featured a 4-game winning streak,...

Three guys under the radar

  While most of the NBA world has been concerned with how the Knicks are playing so well and why the Lakers are, well, not…three doghousehold names are emerging as difference-makers early in this season. If you’ve tuned in to a Hornets game this year to checkout #1 pick Anthony Davis, you may have noticed rookie point guard Brian...

I Like Tom Benson Already

  I admit, I’m not a fan of NFL owners buying NBA teams. No disrespect to Paul Allen and Stan Kroenke (NBA owners that bought NFL teams) but I live by one simple rule: there’s basketball and then there’s everything else. The NBA, to me, is a sacred fraternity unlike any other league in...

Hornets Sold to Benson

The New Orleans Times-Picayune is reporting that the New Orleans Hornets have been sold to Tom Benson, owner of the Saints…the price reportedly being a cool $338 million. For those of you in the market, the going rate for an “average” NBA franchise has been in the low to mid 300′s. This assures that...

Real Talk: Jason Smith vs. Blake Griffin

  The NBA’s two-game suspension of Jason Smith was a joke. At the time of the incident I thought that even a one-game penalty may be to severe. It was a spilt-second play with two brahma bulls running full speed downcourt…..either you get dunked on (again) or you go for the body block. From...

The Paul Saga: What Did We Learn?

The Paul Saga: What Did We Learn?

NBA fans will always remember where they were when Chris Paul was traded…both times. The saga has ended, mercifully. It was a rollercoaster ride with twists and turns that would have made even Manu Ginobili dizzy. It also taught us a few lessons about the NBA….. David Stern is a great General Manager. If...

Stern, NBA Holding Paul For Ransom

Stern, NBA Holding Paul For Ransom

It has become painfully apparent that David Stern and the NBA office think very highly of point guard Chris Paul…to the point where they are asking the world for him in every single trade discussion. It’s a ‘king’s ransom’…and it ain’t even Lebron James (ah, 2010, what a year). The only problem is, they...

David West Is Overrated

  The Indiana Pacers have done what we all knew they would months ago…they signed power forward David West. After platooning guys into that 4-spot all of last season, they will now have a former All-Star manning the position. The deal is for 2 years and $20 million according to Yahoo Sports…..and the best thing...

The Los Angeles Lakers have pulled out of the Chris Paul talks and will trade forward Lamar Odom to the Dallas Mavericks. They will receive the trade exception acquired in the Tyson Chandler deal. The Lakers are now focusing their attention on trading for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard (Marc Stein, ESPN).

L.A. Story: Gasol, Paul, Bynum, & Howard

L.A. Story: Gasol, Paul, Bynum, & Howard

Howard in, Bynum out…..trade Pau for Paul….. It must be great to be Mitch Kupchak. As General Manager of the Los Angeles Lakers he gets ultimate respect from the other 29 GM’s in the league. Whenever a ‘big name’ player hits the rumor mill (currently Dwight Howard & Chris Paul) he gets an automatic...
