The biggest pushing match of the NBA season thus far took place on Tuesday night between the Indiana Pacers and Golden State Warriors at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The fracas started between Roy Hibbert and David Lee and ended up with almost every player on the court in a tangled mess of pushing and elbowing all the way into the stands. Technical fouls were handed out to Hibbert, Lee, Thompson, David West and Stephen Curry. Roy Hibbert was the only player ejected in the melee for his role in pushing Stephen Curry to the ground during the fight.

Even though the Lakers are three games under .500 right now, Kobe Bryant doesn't sound worried. For a piece that appears in the new issue of Sports Illustrated, writer Jack McCallum had the audacity to ask KB24 if he thought the Lakers were going to make it to the playoffs this season. And, Kobe responded by saying that there's not an "if" in his mind right now. "It's not a question of if we make the playoffs," he replied. "We will." [Read More]

It all started last Sunday when Lil Wayne was reportedly kicked out of a Miami Heat home game vs. the Los Angeles Lakers for rooting for his out of town squad (The Heat say this is untrue). Weezy went off on Twitter and made it public that he had no love for the team that houses stars like Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Well, now it seems that the die-hard sports fanatic has been banned from all NBA games and events. Last night, at an All Star after party in Houston, Weezy went off the NBA and Miami Heat. He claims the Heat had a hand in his ban. He cursed out the team’s star players and even said he had extramarital affairs with Chris Bosh’s wife. Of course, his words weren’t as nice. So of course our friend Charlamagne Tha God gave him Donkey Of The Day on Power 106 -- listen to both audio clips after the jump. [Hear More]

LeBron James continues his quest to be the most lovable man in the NBA. Not too long ago, we saw him give a huge hug to a fan who hit a halfcourt shot and now he's playing catch with a dude in the stands. Now I'm just waiting for him to pick up a kid during the finals and play a game with the kid riding piggyback the whole time. Enjoy.

Another week, another highlight reel dunk by J.R. Smith. Last week, Smith threw down a nasty reverse alley-oop slam. Today, J.R. put Ian Mahinmi of Indiana on the receiving end of a poster. It's a good thing dude threw down this facial jam because it will draw attention away from that damn headband. Enjoy.

Now you see him… now you don't. That's the gist of this new Spike Lee-directed NBA commercial featuring Chris Paul, Magic Johnson, and Steve Nash. It features CP3 pulling a "disappearing act" right before our eyes. You know who we feel bad for here, though? Mike Conley Jr. Why'd you have you do him like that, Spike?!?
