  1. Ben McLemore: I called Mario Chalmers’ ‘miracle shot’ in Game 7

    Jun 26, 2013, 5:32 PM EDT

    NBA Draft Basketball

    NEW YORK – If you thought LeBron James was in the zone during Game 7 of the NBA Finals, Ben McLemore says he wasn’t far behind. McLemore, while rooting for LeBron and the Heat, said he had a pretty good performance of his own. First of all, he predicted Miami would win. And then he…

  2. Unlike everyone else, Otto Porter wouldn’t be surprised if Wizards don’t draft him

    Jun 26, 2013, 3:55 PM EDT

    Otto Porter Jr.

    NEW YORK – It’s difficult to find a credible NBA Draft projection that doesn’t have Otto Porter going No. 3 to the Wizards, and it makes a lot of sense. The Cavaliers at No. 1 seem to be eying a big man like Nerlens Noel or Alex Len, and Porter has never really been seriously…

  3. Trey Burke ready to compete with new teammate point guards right now

    Jun 26, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Michigan v Louisville

    NEW YORK – When Trey Burke committed to Michigan, the Wolverines still had Darius Morris. Though Morris’ NBA success as a Lakers second-round pick has been moderate at best, he was a star at Michigan. Morris left early for the NBA before Burke arrived in Ann Arbor, but Burke’s preparation for playing with Morris could…

  4. Report: Nerlens Noel probably not slipping past Magic at No. 2

    Jun 25, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    The NBA Draft is in two days, and we still don’t know who will be the No. 1 pick. Nerlens Noel has been the favorite, but every hour that passes without the Cavaliers tipping their hand, the more likely it seems they’ll pick someone else. Noel, at least publically, hasn’t fretted about that possibility. Maybe…

  5. Report: Hawks trying to trade into top five, maybe for Shabazz Muhammad

    Jun 25, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Shabazz Muhammad

    Sometimes, we hear what type of move a team wants to make. Sometimes, we even hear about potential trade partners for that team. Sometimes, we hear which player a team wants to draft. Here’s a juicy rumor that combines all three. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports: The Atlanta Hawks are dangling their two first-round…

  6. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope also invited to NBA Draft green room

    Jun 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

    Remember the reported 10 players invited to the NBA Draft green room? Add one more to the list. Chris Haynes of Comcast Sports Northwest: Georgia guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is one of the top, select NBA prospects to have been invited to the green room at the NBA Draft on June 27, a league source informed…

  7. Chris Andersen ‘absolutely’ wants to re-sign with Heat, says agent

    Jun 24, 2013, 10:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    Not long ago, Chris Andersen was seen as a pariah. He was banned from the NBA for at least two years for violating the NBA’s drug policy in 2006, and, though he never faced charges, he was investigated for child pornography last year (that turned out to be an apparent extortion attempt). But the Heat…

  8. 76ers to interview Spurs assistant Brett Brown

    Jun 24, 2013, 7:00 PM EDT

    Brett Brown Spurs

    Brett Brown is suddenly a very popular man. He interviewed with the Nuggets, and if that didn’t work out, he appeared in line to become Gregg Popovich’s lead assistant in San Antonio with Mike Budenholzer headed to the Hawks. Now, Brown has yet another suitor. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: the Philadelphia 76ers have sought…

  9. NBA wronging Kevin Garnett by preventing Celtics-Clippers trade

    Jun 24, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Chicago Bulls

    Kevin Garnett worked hard, played well and won big. That earned him a no-trade clause written into his contract, a rare privilege extended currently only to Garnett, Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant and Dirk Nowitzki. David Stern has, in effect, taken it away from Garnett. The Clippers tried to trade for Garnett at the trade deadline,…

  10. Ten players reportedly invited to NBA Draft green room

    Although not a definitive list of the players who will go in the top 10 picks of the NBA Draft, Chad Ford of ESPN has the 10 players the NBA invited to the green room for the draft: Nerlens Noel Victor Oladipo Otto Porter Alex Len Anthony Bennett Ben McLemore Trey Burke Michael Carter-Williams C.J.…

  11. Chandler Parsons talks daily with Dwight Howard about signing with the Rockets

    Jun 22, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard goes up to shoot under pressure from Houston Rockets Chandler Parsons during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Rockets are trying to clear cap space in order to pursue Dwight Howard, and he reportedly views that favorably. It’s one of the subtle ways teams are allowed to communicate, indirectly obviously, with free agents before July 1. Of course, teams can use impermissible methods, too. But there’s also another way Houston is getting…

  12. Pelicans taking No. 13 pick, Shawn Marion off Mavericks’ hands?

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Hornets Mavericks Basketball

    The Mavericks have been shopping the No. 13 pick to clear cap space, and maybe they’ve found a taker who will also accept the final year of Shawn Marion’s contract, which owes him $9,316,796. Fletcher Mackel of WDSU TV: REPORT don't be surprised if Pelicans acquire 13th pk from Mavs, select Giannis Adetokunbo. NOLA also…

  13. Clippers talk contract with Byron Scott and Brian Shaw

    Jun 22, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Byron Scott

    Maybe this is part of an elaborate bluff or misdirection or… Maybe the Clippers are just moving on from Doc Rivers. Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times: Clippers actually talked contract with Byron Scott after meeting with Sterling Tuesday night; Clips also talked contract with BShaw also— Brad Turner (@BA_Turner) June 22, 2013 BShaw…

  14. Spurs’ run finally over? An annual question

    Jun 22, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-PRACTICE

    Tim Duncan is 37. Manu Ginobili is 35. Tony Parker, the youngest of the Spurs’ famed trio, is 31. All three have significant mileage from NBA regular seasons, long playoff runs and international play. Are they over the hill to the point San Antonio’s run finally ended? It sure seems so, but I also realize…

  15. Warriors general manager Bob Myers hints team might buy draft pick

    Jun 22, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    Just three teams don’t have picks in the upcoming NBA Draft: the Heat, Raptors and Warriors. The Heat, though every team could use draft picks, are doing just fine. The Raptors, according at least one prominent report, sent out cash in the Rudy Gay trade and the Collective Bargaining Agreement limits how much money a…

  16. Ben McLemore the next Ray Allen? Victor Oladipo the next Dwyane Wade? How they answer could be telling

    Jun 22, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Ben McLemore

    Ben McLemore and Victor Oladipo are the consensus top two shooting guards in the 2013 NBA Draft, but for very different reasons. McLemore is seen as a potential superstar who needs more on-court aggressiveness to really shine. Oladipo is seen as a great role player who maximizes his talent. Even a couple seemingly benign quotes…

  17. Report: Doc Rivers tried to fight Rajon Rondo after Celtics point guard swore at him

    Jun 22, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Rajon Rondo

    Most reports have said Doc Rivers might not want to return to the Celtics because he’s wary of rebuilding, but is there another factor? Chris Sheridan of Sheridan Hoops: A source close to the Celtics tells Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com that Rondo droopped an F-bomb on Rivers in the locker room during a team meeting,…

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha of Switzerland, celebrates with teammate Russell Westbrook after a Westbrook scored against the Houston Rockets in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Playoffs basketball game

    Charlie Bright, as explained by Royce Young of Daily Thunder, took Rachel Haycraft on their first date to a Thunder game.

  19. Report: Chris Paul unhappy after Doc Rivers-to-Clippers fails to materialize

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    Chris Paul didn’t like Clippers owner Donald Sterling insinuating Paul had Vinny Del Negro had fired. Then Paul asked the Clippers to acquire Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett, which probably isn’t happening (though I won’t rule it out until the Clippers hire a coach or Rivers directly announces his intentions to coach Boston next season). How…

  20. Report: Nuggets offered draft pick for Doc Rivers, will settle for Lionel Hollins or Brian Shaw

    Jun 21, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers

Sports: Shortly after firing George Karl, the Denver Nuggets offered the Boston Celtics a first-round draft pick as compensation to pry coach Doc Rivers out of…

  21. LeBron James matches Magic Johnson’s NBA Finals mark

    Jun 21, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    LeBron James won NBA Finals MVP, but that honor, which must be given to someone each year no matter how much or how little he elevates his game above his peers, doesn’t give the Heat star his full due. LeBron dominated these Finals. His all-around game on as full a display as ever, he led…

  22. Heat survive most pressure-packed season of all time

    Jun 21, 2013, 3:16 AM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 7

    LeBron James wandered around the American Airlines Center court in an apparent stupor – receiving congratulatory handshakes hugs and from Spurs players, surviving a bear hug from Juwan Howard and sharing a moment with Gregg Popovich. If LeBron looked tired, it’s because he was. LeBron said he couldn’t sleep the night before Game 7 victory,…

  23. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade stick together to lead Heat to championship

    Jun 21, 2013, 1:14 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    LeBron James stood on the American Airlines Arena stage and clutched the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP trophy. To his left, Dwayne held the the Larry O’Brien Championship trophy and rubbed it in amazement.

  24. LeBron James’ clutchiest jumper sends Heat to Game 7 victory, third championship (video)

    Jun 20, 2013, 11:50 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    LeBron James scared to take the big shot? I don’t think so. In the final minute of Game 7 of the NBA Finals, LeBron declined what would have been a good pass to an open Mario Chalmers. Instead, LeBron pulled up for the jumper himself and absolutely buried it. The shot put Miami up by…

  25. Mario Chalmers banks in 30-foot 3-pointer to beat third-quarter buzzer

    Jun 20, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Mario Chalmers, who knows something about making buzzer-beating 3-pointers in winner-take-all games, inbounded the ball with 5.2 seconds left in the third quarter, immediately got a pass back from Ray Allen and dashed upcourt unimpeded. Then, he pulled up from 30 feet to bank what has so far been the biggest shot of the biggest…
