Kobe Bryant was all smiles when he talked about his $48.5-million contract extension in November 2013, saying he would "run through a wall" for the Lakers to prove they were right and everybody who doubted them was wrong.
LaMarcus Aldridge is heading to the All-Star Game for the fourth straight year, but unlike last season he won't be joined by teammate Damian Lillard.

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson is chosen as a Western Conference reserve for the NBA All-Star game at Madison Square Garden.
Eww Two years ago, Roy Hibbert was a young franchise cornerstone center who absolutely torched the Knicks. Now he is a bit of an overpaid joke...who still torches the Knicks. Hibbert, who bullied New York's frontcourt to the tune of 18 points and 10 rebounds, took over from the opening tip of the second half, as the Indiana Pacers turned a close game into a laugher with a 35-12 third quarter en route to a 102-82 victory. Lou Amundson celebrated his new contract with 17 points, but he and the other New York bigs were absolutely dominated on the glass. Langston Galloway had perhaps his worst...
Magic center Nikola Vucevic has posted impressive statistics this season. The numbers just weren't good enough to land him his first spot in the NBA All-Star Game.
Only the bluest-and-orangest diehards were privileged to witness tanking at its finest tonight. The Knicks were gorgeous through one quarter, competitive through two, and then...my God, and then...what a then! In the annals of the 2015 Knick methods of losing, tonight was one of their classic "silencer" losses. There was no ominous sign it was coming, no single moment nor brilliant opponent performance that did them in. This was one of those losses where they're in the game - in this case, even leading most of the first half - then you blink or take a piss or wonder why we park on driveways...

The absences of Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng make defeating Dallas a tall order. When the Miami Heat went into Dallas Nov. 9, built a 22-point lead and won 105-96, it seemed like the Heat had recovered well from LeBron James' departure. Luol Deng scored 30 points on 13-of-19 shooting from the field, and Dwyane Wade had 20 points and 10 assists that night. Since that night, injuries have depleted the roster and made this season a disappointment. And Deng and Wade will not play Friday night at 8 p.m. against the Dallas Mavericks. Dwyane Wade (hamstring) and Luol Deng (calf) have both been...
The Nuggets set season lows in points, FG% and 3FG% in route to a 99-69 mauling by the Memphis Grizzlies. Tonight's matchup between the Denver Nuggets and the Memphis Grizzlies was billed as the rematch between the fiery rookie, Jusuf Nurkic, and the talented All-Star, Mark Gasol. Both players talked to the media about being anxious for the matchup. Gasol seemed set on getting revenge for Nurkic's taunting in their first meeting and Nurkic looked to prove once again that he could hang with the league's best. Unfortunately, their matchup played out as a footnote in a disappointingly...
