    Blazersedge: Blazers' Bill Simmons: Blazers PF LaMarcus Aldridge Is 'One Of The Worst All-Star Snubs Of All Time'
    "He's one of the worst All-Star snubs of all time. I don't think he's going to make it. The Yao Ming -- It's going to be either him or Love. Either one of them is a travesty but what can you do? It's a 13-player team."

    ESPN: Power Rankings
    "The breakdown for the one Blazer seemingly impervious to the league's worst injury plague: Portland is 12-5 when Aldridge scores at least 25, 8-4 when he scores between 20 and 24 ... and 7-15 when he's held below 20."

    The Basketball Jones: StackJack gets techs because he wants to
    “I get techs because I want to. I don’t care,” Jackson said Sunday. “I’m not getting techs for no reason. It happens.”

    Oregon Live: NBA notes: Bulls, thanks to Derrick Rose's MVP-worthy play, are becoming a road attraction
    "Chicago ranks No. 4 in the NBA in attendance at away games at 18,058. The Bulls trail only the Heat - with their star-studded roster - and two traditional powers, the Celtics and Lakers. In 2007-08, the season before Chicago drafted Rose with the No. 1 pick, the Bulls ranked No. 14 in away attendance. "

    Oregon Live: NBA notes: Frustration boils over for former UO star Aaron Brooks, who is suspended by Rockets
    "On Sunday, the Rockets suspended Brooks for their Monday game at Denver, leaving for the trip without him. The suspension will cost Brooks about $22,600 in salary.''

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 2.7 (Weekend Recap)
    "Aaron Brooks (2/5): 2-6 FG (33%), 2-2 FT (100%), 6 Pts, 2 Reb, 2 Ast, 3 TO; Brooks’ insufferable season has hit a new low: after walking off the court early in Saturday’s game, the struggling point guard has been suspended for tonight’s game. Brooks is clearly frustrated with his diminished role and minutes this season. He’s remains worth stashing if possible, but it’s unclear how this mess will be sorted out."

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "I thought Rondo took the third over," Garnett said. "Second half, Rondo controlled the game, controlled the tempo, and I thought he and Paul [Pierce] were aggressive early on and we just fed off that."
