  1. Heat and Spurs haven’t seen much of each other

    Jun 5, 2013, 10:28 AM EDT

    French guard Tony Parker (L) challenges

    For a moment, let’s put aside key players like Chris Bosh, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard and just look at the Heat’s and Spurs’ top two players. In the last three years, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker have shared the court for just 45:57. They could, theoretically, pass that total in…

    Jun 5, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    File of Mavericks guard Kidd watching from the bench against the Spurs  during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Mark Cuban was mad Jason Kidd left the Mavericks to sign with the Knicks, and the Dallas owner didn’t hide his feelings. Between saying “I was pissed” and “It hurt my feelings, period,” Cuban also said “I’m sure I’ll get over it at some point.” That day has come. Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning…

  3. Masai Ujiri might not keep Dwane Casey, after all

    Jun 5, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Raptors head coach Casey gestures to his players during game against the Bulls in Toronto.

    Despite a report earlier in the week that Dwane Casey would return as coach of the Raptors, new Toronto general manager Masai Ujiri wasn’t so resolute in his public statements on the matter. Mike Ganter of the Toronto Sun: Ujiri stopped well short of guaranteeing that Casey will be his head coach heading into next…

  4. Report: Larry Brown contacted by Nets, 76ers and third mystery team

    Jun 4, 2013, 9:54 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    Larry Brown has run out of NBA teams to coach, so now he’s apparently on his second go-round. The former Nets coach and former 76ers coach has been contacted by both those teams, according to Adam Zagoria of The Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia 76ers have both “contacted” SMU coach Larry Brown about their…

  5. Patrick Ewing to interview with Bobcats for lead assistant

    Jun 4, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Patrick Ewing

    Immediately after the Bobcats hired Steve Clifford, Patrick Ewing emerged as his likely lead assistant.

    The Dallas Mavericks are reportedly looking to trade the No. 13 pick so they can clear enough cap room to sign Dwight Howard, but if the Mavericks want to avoid the cap hold that comes with the pick, they have another option. As detailed by ESPN’s Chad Ford, Dallas could draft a player and delay…

  7. Did Hawks tamper by mentioning Dwight Howard and Chris Paul in ticket-sale e-mail?

    Jun 4, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Atlanta Hawks

    Dwight Howard and Chris Paul will become free agents on July 1, but they’re not free agents yet. So the Hawks probably shouldn’t be using those two to sell tickets. Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: The letter, obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, was sent via e-mail from one member of the ticket sales department.…

  8. Gregg Popovich once deemed Tony Parker too soft to draft

    Jun 4, 2013, 6:00 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    When naming the NBA’s toughest players, Tony Parker probably doesn’t crack the list. But when naming players with question marks about their toughness, Parker certainly doesn’t make that list, either. For player as skilled as Parker, that’s a big deal. He doesn’t have to be Charles Oakley to succeed. He just must be tough enough…

  9. New Bucks coach Larry Drew fines wife at introductory press conference

    Jun 4, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

    Larry Drew

    Whenever I attend a news conference, I set my phone to vibrate. Then, while waiting for the news conference to begin, I check my phone again to make sure I set it correctly. And if the wait is long enough, I check my phone a few more times to make sure I didn’t imagine my…

  10. Chris Paul would ‘look pretty good in a Sacramento Kings uniform,’ says new Kings coach

    Jun 4, 2013, 4:49 PM EDT

    Isaiah Thomas, DeMarcus Cousins, Chris Paul

    Chris Paul will be a free agent off-season, and reports that he’s angry with the Clippers have fans of every team  looking for reasons why Paul would sign with their team. The Kings’ recently hired coach, Michael Malone, gives Sacramento fans their reason. Malone was an assistant with the Hornets when Paul played for them.…

  11. USA Basketball invites player who ‘fouled the s—’ out everyone last time to minicamp

    Jun 4, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    As part of the USA Select Team in 2012, DeMarcus Cousins didn’t exactly impress. Carmelo Anthony said Cousins “fouled the s— outta everyone,” and USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo said Cousins “has a lot of growing up to do.” Even Coach Mike Krzyzewski, who offered the most optimistic take on Cousins, said “His time here,…

  12. Heat rise to the occasion in NBA’s biggest game of the year

    Jun 4, 2013, 2:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's James celebrates with the Eastern Conference championship trophy after they defeated the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    You will read plenty of stats that explain why the Heat beat the Pacers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Miami outrebounded Indiana for the first time this series. The Pacers turned the ball over more than any other game this series. Indiana hadn’t shot so poorly on both 2-pointers and 3-pointers in…

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    With Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals long decided and the bench players running out final moments of the Heat’s win over the Pacers, Norris Cole and Jeff Pendergraph were ejected. Pendergraph shoved Cole as Cole attempted to fight through a Pendergraph screen, and both postured at each other to indicate they weren’t afraid…

    Jun 3, 2013, 11:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James runs downcourt after scoring against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    The Miami Heat’s 99-76 win over the Indiana Pacers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals tonight – a 23-point margin – was the biggest Game 7 win in the conference finals or Finals since the Magic beat the Pacers by 24 in 1995. The only other Game 7 win this deep into the…

  15. LeBron skies to finish alley-oop (video)

    Jun 3, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    LeBron James didn’t attempt a shot in the first 7:15 of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Heat didn’t have an assist in the first 13:45, either. If solving both those issues were as simple as it looked on that alley-oop, Miami should have run the play much sooner.

  16. Big Three give Heat big lead over Pacers at halftime of Game 7 of Eastern Conference Finals

    Jun 3, 2013, 9:50 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    The Heat’s Big Three is looking like a Big Three again. LeBron James has 18 points, two rebounds and two assists. Dwyane Wade, showing a lot more fluidity, has 10 points and four rebounds. And after starting 1-for-8, coincidentally his shooting line in Game 6, Chris Bosh made his next two shots – including a…

  17. LeBron’s putback dunk puts Heat on top in Game 7 (video)

    Jun 3, 2013, 9:37 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James slam dunks against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    The Heat might not be shooting well early in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but as long as they keep pulling in offensive rebounds as frequently as they have been, it might not matter. And when LeBron James can do that, it really doesn’t matter. That basket capped a 9-2 run that got…

  18. Dwyane Wade makes sweet move to dunk in transition (video)

    Jun 3, 2013, 9:27 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    LeBron James won’t have to cut off any questions about Dwyane Wade’s health if Wade keeps making moves like the one he put on Lance Stephenson in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Wade’s insistence on getting more shots won’t be an issue, either. With six first-quarter points, Wade looks like he’s finally on…

  19. Chris Bosh apologizes to Heat

    Jun 3, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers' Hibbert drives on Miami Heat's Bosh during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    Chris Bosh apologized to Heat teammates for his poor play against the Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals, according to Tom Haberstroh of ESPN. Bosh’s problems have shown most noticeably on offense – where he’s averaging just 11 points on 41 percent shooting – but I believe those issues are largely due to his defensive…

  20. Nets formally request permission to interview Lionel Hollins

    Jun 3, 2013, 6:03 PM EDT

    Lionel Hollins

    Lionel Hollins reportedly has permission to interview with other teams, but the Nets are crossing their Ts and dotting there Is, because those tampering fines can get expensive. (Brooklyn’s luxury-tax bill will cost enough.) Marc Stein of ESPN: Brooklyn Nets, according to NBA coaching sources, have today formally requested permission to interview Grizzlies coach Lionel…

  21. Win or lose against Heat in Game 7, Pacers deserve recognition among NBA’s elite franchises of last 20 years

    Jun 3, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    When the Indiana Pacers hired Larry Brown in 1993, he said “I’d like to win an N.B.A. championship for the Indiana Pacers.” Twenty years later, the Pacers are still searching for their first NBA title. (They won three in the ABA.) But they’ve still belong among the league’s most successful franchises. Here are the leaders…

  22. Heat aren’t infallible, and it’s unfair to treat them as such

    Jun 3, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Ray Allen, Dwyane Wade

    When LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami, critics decried the end of competitive balance. They saw LeBron’s “Not one, not two, not three…” remark not as a hopeful boast, but as the inevitable. The Heat would win the championship every year from then on, and there was nothing anyone could do…

  23. NBA salary cap to rise only slightly

    Jun 3, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    O.J. Mayo, Dwight Howard

    The NBA’s salary cap and luxury-tax line are determined by the league’s Basketball Related Income. The more money the league makes, the higher the salary cap and luxury-tax line. Early estimates indicate the NBA didn’t generate as much revenue as expected this season. Marc Stein of ESPN: Hearing early projections given to GMs and owners…

  24. Report: Brian Shaw wants to coach the Clippers

    Jun 3, 2013, 12:43 AM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    It seems four teams with winning record this season will hire new coaches: Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers. The Hawks already hired Mike Budenholzer, a Spurs assistant whom several other teams pursued. With their rosters, the Nets, Grizzlies and Clippers teams will also have significant leverage to lure the prime…

  25. Young Pacers on verge of history

    Jun 2, 2013, 1:02 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    Larry Bird was the reigning MVP. David Robinson hadn’t yet been drafted. Julius Erving was still an active player. That’s how long it’s been since a team as young as the 2012-13 Indiana Pacers made the NBA Finals. Thanks to their 91-77 win over the Miami Heat tonight, the Pacers are only one win from…
