  1. Kobe Bryant talks with Jim Buss, reiterates ‘selfish’ desire for Lakers to contend next two seasons

    Mar 24, 2014, 10:18 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    I can’t see how these next two years could go wrong for the Lakers.

  2. Bobcats ask Charlotte for $34.1 million to upgrade NBA’s third-newest arena

    Mar 21, 2014, 11:44 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Charlotte Bobcats

    In 2001, Charlotte voters rejected a proposal to use public money on a new basketball arena. In 2002, the Hornets moved to new Orleans. That obviously wasn’t a coincidence. Across the country, professional sports teams hold cities hostage, seeking public welfare for a very private enterprise. Until cities routinely say no, teams will keep requesting…

  3. Maurice Williams passes between Drew Gooden’s legs for a Thomas Robinson dunk

    Mar 21, 2014, 10:45 AM EDT

    Drew Gooden

    Whatever value Drew Gooden provides the Wizards offensively, he’s still an absent-minded defender. (hat tip: Zach Harper of Eye on Basketball)

  4. Mickael Pietrus focused on 2014-15 NBA comeback

    Mar 21, 2014, 10:15 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Portland Trail Blazers

    Former member of the Raptors, Celtics, Suns, Magic and Wariors is passing on overseas offers.

  5. John Wall wants Wizards to become Bullets again

    Mar 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Washington Wizards

    In 1997, The Washington Bullets became the Washington Wizards (though not directly due to the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, as many believe). Wizards, a corny nickname with no local significance, hasn’t really caught on among the city’s passionate basketball fans. But it won’t change back to Bullets for two main reasons: 1. Most fans have…

  6. Timofey Mozgov’s revenge (sorry, Josh Smith)

    Mar 20, 2014, 12:08 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Timofey Mozgov

    Timofey Mozgov, most famous for getting dunked on by Blake Griffin, can dunk a little bit himself. Just ask Josh Smith. This wasn’t totally Smith’s fault –  who was Greg Monroe defending on that pick-and-roll? – but there’s no coming back from that. Smith was ejected later in the game.

  7. Steve Nash might play again this season. Wait, what?

    Mar 20, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Houston Rockets

    Mike D’Antoni reverses course on Nash’s prognosis.

  8. Kyle Lowry regrets how he handled time with Houston Rockets

    Mar 20, 2014, 11:20 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Kyle Lowry

    Rockets replacing Rick Adelman with Kevin McHale caused friction.

  9. Quote of the Day: Erik Spoelstra has no advice for Phil Jackson’s coach

    Mar 20, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra coaches his team against the Chicago Bulls during Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference semi-final basketball playoff in Miami

    On working for  a once-great coach who’s now team president: “I started working with Pat 19 years ago. For two or three years, he didn’t even know my name.” -Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, who began his career as a video coordinator. Presumably, Phil Jackson will better know his next coach from jump street.

  10. Dwyane Wade-Udonis Haslem combo returns, but any dividends put in escrow

    Mar 19, 2014, 11:51 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Udonis Haslem

    BOSTON – Dwyane Wade had barely crossed halfcourt when Udonis Haslem streaked past him and all the way behind the defense. Wade tossed the ball toward the rim, and Haslem grabbed it and dunked, hanging on the rim an extra beat. The Celtics called timeout, on their way to a 14-point deficit midway through the…

  11. Derrick Rose’s next games coming with Team USA rather than Chicago Bulls? Tom Thibodeau is on board

    Mar 19, 2014, 1:51 PM EDT

    Bulls vs. Cavaliers

    The last summer Derrick Rose played for Team USA, he won a gold medal and then, in the ensuing NBA season, became the youngest MVP of all-time.

    Coincidence?

  12. NBA investigates Phil Jackson (Knicks) and Jeanie Buss (Lakers) for conflict of interest

    Mar 19, 2014, 11:46 AM EDT

    Former Los Angeles Lakers coach Jackson sits with Lakers Executive Vice President of Business Operations Buss during the NBA basketball game against the Dallas Mavericks in Los Angeles

    Now engaged, Phil Jackson and Jeanie Buss have dated since 1999. Their relationship surely got awkward at times during the 11 years Jackson worked for the Buss family business, the Los Angeles Lakers. With Jackson coaching and Jeanie Buss working in the front office, there definitely could have been conflicts of interest. There surely were…

  13. Mark Cuban: Lakers might never be the Lakers again

    Mar 19, 2014, 11:04 AM EDT

    Mavericks' Cuban reacts as Carter guards Lakers' Bryant during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    There are a lot of incredible stats about the Lakers’ historic greatness, but this one is my favorite: Between 1949 and 2010 – a 62-year stretch – the Lakers appeared in half of all NBA Finals. Half! That is just astonishing. And for the second half of that run, Jerry Buss owned the franchise. Sometime…
