    Cleveland Cavaliers' Zydrunas Ilgauskas rests his head on the shoulder of LeBron James in Cleveland

    LeBron James, to nobody’s surprise, is the all-time leading scorer in Cleveland Cavaliers history. Who’s No. 2? Zydrunas Ilgauskas, one of the most underrated of the previous generation of NBA players. Ilgauskas overcame serious injuries to claim the Cavaliers’ franchise record for games played and made two All-Star games. He possessed a nice touch around…

    Mar 3, 2014, 7:22 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade hasn’t played more than six straight games in 2014, and that won’t change tonight. Wade has played in each of Miami’s last six contests, averaging 21.4 points on 62 percent shooting with 5.8 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game. If the Heat get this Wade in the playoffs, they’ll likely be…

    Jason Collins, ZaZa Pachulia

    The Brooklyn Nets already made history. Now they’re going to make a roster move. The Nets signed Jason Collins to a 10-day contract, making him the first openly gay athlete to play in a major North American team sport. That contract expires Tuesday, so Brooklyn will reportedly give him another deal. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

    Mar 3, 2014, 2:33 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Courtney Lee, Andre Drummond

    Chauncey Billups has been a star, a role player and a buried bench player. He’s played for winners and losers. He’s been young and old. He’s seen it all, and as one of the NBA’s smartest players, he’s learned it all. So, he knows where his career is headed. Billups, who recently had knee surgery,…

    Mar 3, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Warriors Raptors Basketball

    Imagining how previous NBA drafts would play out in hindsight is always fun, an instant debate starter for basketball fans. I’m sure we’ve all wasted a countless hours analyzing questions like: Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh No. 3 behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2004? Do half the top-eight picks in 2013 remain in…

    Mar 3, 2014, 11:30 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Carmelo Anthony, Jimmy Butler

    (video via CSN Chicago) Asked what he thought of a “Melo to Chicago” sign in the stands during the Knicks’ loss to the Bulls on Sunday, Carmelo Anthony didn’t simply pass on the question like most in his situation would have. “It was a good sign,” Melo said with a laugh. “It was a good…

  8. Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown unsure whether his team will win again this season

    Mar 3, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Brett Brown

    On Jan. 30, the Milwaukee Bucks held a 6.5-game “lead” over the Philadelphia 76ers for the NBA’s worst record. The Bucks seemed primed to run away with the league’s best lottery odds. Never underestimate the 76ers, though. Since, Philadelphia has ripped off a 14-game losing streak – the NBA’s worst skid of the season –…

    Evan Turner, Chris Johnson

    With starting point guard George Hill out injured the last two games, the Indiana Pacers have undertaken an interesting experiment: using Evan Turner at point guard. Turner, a wing by trade, played point guard at Ohio State and dabbled at the position in Philadelphia. In Indiana, he was expected to take Danny Granger’s minutes as…

  10. Phil Jackson on returning to Lakers (‘I don’t think so’) and coaching Rockets (‘I mean. Um’)

    Mar 3, 2014, 10:00 AM EDT

    Memorial Service For Los Angeles Lakers Owner Dr. Jerry Buss

    Only one thing will end rumors of Phil Jackson returning to coaching: His death. But Jackson is still kicking, answering questions at age 68 about when and where he might coach next. Of course, the Lakers – with whom he was a candidate before they ultimately hired Mike D’Antoni – came up first. Jackson’s 11…

  11. Pistons deny interest in Isiah Thomas

    Mar 3, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Isiah Thomas

    Breath easy, Pistons fans. Isiah Thomas – reported to be a top contender to replace Joe Dumars as Detroit’s general manager – is not being considered, the team says. David Mayo of MLive: A spokesman for Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores called a report that the team is wooing Isiah Thomas as its next general…

  12. Jimmy Butler runs length of court through stands during play

    Mar 2, 2014, 6:30 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert, Jimmy Butler

    Leaping over a row of seats to save a loose ball isn’t easy, but players typically get a running start on the court first. Getting back onto the court, starting with no momentum and in a crowd, can prove a little more difficult. The Bulls’ Jimmy Butler definitely found a creative solution in Chicago’s win…

  13. Mark Cuban wants elite basketball prospects in the D-League, not college

    Mar 2, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    The NCAA treats top-level basketball players terribly. A cartel system keeps their compensation artificially low and binds them to needlessly restrictive rules. But there’s no great alternative. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban wants to change that. Cuban, via Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com: “I think what will end up happening — and this is my opinion,…

  14. Bobcats waive Ben Gordon after deadline for him to join playoff roster

    Mar 2, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Ersan Ilyasova, Ben Gordon

    A year ago, the Charlotte Bobcats tried to trade Ben Gordon – and apparently couldn’t. A week ago, they tried to buy out Gordon – and apparently couldn’t. But they could waive him. Bobcats news release: Charlotte Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins announced today that the team has requested waivers on guard Ben…

  15. Report: Pistons considering hiring Isiah Thomas as general manager

    Mar 2, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Isiah Thomas

    Isiah Thomas, as general manager of the New York Knicks, built loser after loser, pulverized the team’s cap structure and exposed Madison Square Garden to an eight-digit sexual-harassment lawsuit. Just the man who deserves another chance to run a team. That’s reportedly the logic of Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores, who could be weeks from…

  16. Scott Brooks not concerned with Thunder contesting lowest rate of jumpers in NBA

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:30 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving, Serge Ibaka

    After hearing Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brook say he’s “concerned about making sure that every shot is contested,” NBA.com’s John Schumann tested the numbers. Turns out, the numbers say the Thunder contest the lowest percentage of jumpers in the NBA. First, the definition Schumann uses: SportVU defines a jump shot as any shot out…

  17. Report: Bulls and Cavaliers interested in Jimmer Fredette

    Feb 27, 2014, 2:31 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Sacramento Kings

    Jimmer Fredette, who will soon be bought out by the Sacramento Kings, doesn’t run an offense well, and he’s too small to play shooting guard regularly – though he defends both backcourt positions poorly, anyway. There’s a reason the Kings didn’t pick up the fourth-year option on his rookie contract and are buying him out…

  18. Knicks switching D-League affiliate from Pennsylvania to White Plains, N.Y.

    Erie Bayhawks Springfield Armor Basketball

    There’s such an abundance of basketball fans in New York, even these sad Knicks have filled Madison Square Garden to complete capacity this season. The Knicks have been through so much turmoil over the last decade, and they still can’t shake supporters. It seems that will never change. Now, those area fans will have another…

  19. Report: NBA general manager concerned Dante Exum will force his way to Lakers

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:08 PM EDT

    NBL Rd 18 - Melbourne v Adelaide

    A draft prospect who grew up overseas really wanted to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. But a team drafting before the Lakers also wanted the player. So, the player threated to sign with a foreign team if he couldn’t go to the Lakers. Safe to say, the Nets wish they had called Kobe Bryant’s…

  20. Report: Sacramento Kings to sign Royce White

    Feb 27, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    Royce White

    It’s easy to forget now, but Royce White was the No. 16 pick in the 2012 NBA draft for a reason. He projected to have enormous upside thanks to his ball-handling and passing ability for his size, and he still had big-man skills to form the full package as a prospect. Before Giannis Antetokounmpo, there…

  21. Washington Wizards reportedly tried hard to trade for Jameer Nelson

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:12 AM EDT

    Jameer Nelson, Jonas Valanciunas

    It was no secret the Washington Wizards needed point guard help behind John Wall. It’s also no secret the rebuilding Orlando Magic are no longer a great fit for 32-year-old Jameer Nelson. The two teams would have made sense as trade partners before last week’s deadline. In fact, the Wizards reportedly really wanted to be…

  24. Extra Pass: Cleveland Cavaliers built playoff-caliber team, but that won’t mean enough

    Feb 27, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Luol Deng, Kevin Durant

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are a playoff-caliber team that is extremely unlikely to make the playoffs. With a 114-104 win Wednesday, the Cavaliers extended Oklahoma City Thunder’s losing streak to a season-high three games. Unlike the previous two teams to defeat the Thunder, the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland is fancied by nobody as a…

    Feb 26, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Channing Frye

    The Minnesota Timberwolves just can’t win close games. Trailing the Phoenix Suns by eight points in the fourth quarter Tuesday night, Minnesota exploded for a  24-6 run in a 110-101 win. Yet, the Timberwolves remain 1-12 in games decided by four or fewer points – by far the worst mark in the NBA. If only they…
