The United States has imposed sanctions against seven prominent Russians and four Ukrainians with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Though Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov is close with Putin, he has not been sanctioned. He will show his loyalty to Russia, though. Reuters: Mikhail Prokhorov, owner of the Brooklyn Nets, had said before…

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…

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…

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.

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.

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…
