  • Steve Nash was realistic about the current situation of the Lakers, from Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles: “The 38-year-old Nash also admitted he has seriously considered the possibility that the Lakers, despite all their preseason hype and championship aspirations, might not even make the playoffs this season. “That motivates me every day,” Nash said. “There’s no guarantee [that the Lakers make the playoffs]. I think three or four weeks ago, people would have said, ‘Ah, it will get better.’ Now I definitely don’t think there’s a guarantee it will, so the only remedy is continue to work hard and give yourself a chance for it to get better. “I obviously think with time, and that might mean through the summer, we can get better. But for this season, it’s definitely going to be a challenge to turn this around. … We got a number of things we got to try to improve on to get better, but one thing that we can’t accept is to take our foot off the gas and accept things. We got to continue to fight.”
  • Mark Cuban was fined by the league for his rant about referees on twitter, from NBA.com: “Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has been fined $50,000 by the NBA for publicly criticizing the officiating. Cuban, who has been fined more than $1.5 million by the league during his 13 years owning the Mavs, expressed his frustration with the officiating on his Twitter page following the Mavericks’ 99-96 overtime loss to New Orleans on Saturday. Cuban apologized to fans in the tweet, saying that he’s “tried for 13 (years) to fix the officiating in this league and I have failed miserably” and asking for their suggestions. An NBA spokesman confirmed the fine Tuesday. The league did not announce the penalty.”
  • Brandon Jennings wasn’t too happy with the Bucks for having to hear about Scott Skiles’ situation through him directly, from Todd Rosiak of Journal Sentinel: “Scott Skiles was my coach for four years. He was my first NBA coach. He was the guy who put the ball in my hands as a rookie and just told me to go, so I have nothing negative to say,” he said. “I’m real shocked. The only thing was a little bit upset about is I had to hear from him first and not from the team. Scott called me last night and we talked for about 15-20 minutes. He was the first one to tell me that he wouldn’t be coming back. “It was tough on me a little bit, but I slept on it and I know it’s part of the business. So we just have to move on. But he told me to keep in contact with him, and I will. “To go out like this and the fact we’re still at .500 and No. 7 in the Eastern Conference is just a total shock to me. It’s going to be different for me, but I’m going to be ready.”… “I mean, the team didn’t tell me. Scott told me,” he said. “I think that’s why I was a little frustrated at first — just the fact that I had to hear it from my own coach and not from the team. If I’m supposed to be the franchise player, why don’t I hear the news first?”
  • Scott Skiles denied rumors that he hated the players on his team, from Charles F. Gardner of Journal Sentinel: “Former Bucks coach Scott Skiles is out the door and he’s not firing back. But he does want to set the record straight on a few issues. How about that one circulating on social media Monday that he “hated his team.” “That’s an absolute lie,” Skiles said. “If (the writer) has that information, it was given to him by somebody to demean me.”… “There’s always the normal coach-player friction that goes on,” Skiles said in an interview Tuesday afternoon. “Guys at this level are great players. This is, as NBA teams go, this is a good group of guys.”… “Ultimately if you’re some place three, four, five years, unless you enter into a full rebuilding mode, you will be judged on wins and losses,” Skiles said. “It wasn’t good enough.”
