Jason Kidd says all his critics are just jealous of his longevity. Yea, that’s it.

Here’s a breakdown of all 19 offensive rebounds the Chicago Bulls got in Game 1 against the Heat.

LeBron James in the playoffs is still pretty much LeBron James.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have never improved their draft position thanks to the NBA Draft Lottery. The good news: This season they don’t need to improve it, just not give up ground.

Doc Rivers is having a non-cancerous growth surgically removed from his throat today. The upshot is he cannot talk for two weeks. ““My wife will be the happiest person in the room about that.”

John Smallwood at Philly.com puts forward the theory that while Suns CEO Rick Welts coming out and saying he is gay is nice, the dialogue about being gay in sports will not move forward until a star player comes out while active.

Dirk Nowitizki thinks he’s playing well. He’s right about that.

Dwyane Wade talking NBA playoffs.

Gregg Popovich does not think Jerry Sloan is done coaching and would talk to the Lakers. (Maybe, but that would be a tough mix of off-the-court cultures.)

    Lakers have a snowball’s chance in hell of hiring Sloan. First off, because he’s really done. Second, because the Lakers, Spurs, and Bulls are the reason he retired without a ring. I don’t think he’d be too keen on returning to coaching for one of his biggest rivals.
