  1. NBA Free Agency: Did the Heat clear too much space?

    May 23, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    The Miami Heat had big plans for this summer. First order of priority was to create enough room to re-sign Dwyane Wade, who loves Miami like its his mother, to max contract. The next step was adding another max free agent to prove to Wade he could win another championship in Miami after the last…

  2. So what's the deal with the Chris Bosh free agency list?

    May 23, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    On Friday, we told you about the report from Chad Ford of ESPN concerning a list of teams Chris Bosh’s agent had provided the Raptors. The list was for teams he was looking to sign with, and included the Heat, Knicks, Bulls, and Lakers, so that the Raptors could begin considering a sign and trade.…

  3. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 3: Glen Davis is the harbinger of doom

    May 23, 2010, 1:08 AM EDT

    Glen Davis plays like a drunk seal, often falling over on routine shots, belly flopping like he’s trying to earn a cracker. He’s a thick-fingered power forward with minimal elevation and low athletic upside. He shot 43.7% from the floor this season and was criticized for not having his focus ready. Well, the seal’s grown…

  4. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 3: Celtics somehow manage to outdo themselves

    May 22, 2010, 10:50 PM EDT

    There is no point in playing Game 4. None. If there was any way, I think the Magic would actually be okay with a mercy rule and just calling it a three game sweep. Because they clearly have no interest in trying at all. It’s a struggle to find a hook to explain this game.…

  5. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 3: Celtics dominating Magic, reaching for brooms

    May 22, 2010, 9:48 PM EDT

    Can we end this series now? Are we going to force ourselves to go through a Game 4? At the half, the Orlando Magic, facing an 0-2 deficit with little hope, their backs against the wall with their playoff lives on the line, are getting destroyed 51-34 by the Boston Celtics. This series could not…

  6. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 3: J.J. Redick's schizophrenic series

    May 22, 2010, 5:27 PM EDT

    We told you J.J. Redick would be a part of this series. And for better AND for worse, he has been. Redick put his mark on Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals moreso than any playoff game in his career. It was Redick who scored 16 points and added five rebounds and four assists,…

  7. NBA lowers the boom on Cuban for tampering comments about LeBron James

    May 22, 2010, 4:41 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban can’t be surprised he was fined today, but nonetheless, he’ll be feeling a frown on his face when he gets the bill. Less than two days after word broke that Mark Cuban had told CNN Money that the Mavericks would be interested in James if he were to opt-out and enter free agency…

  8. Report: Dirk Nowitzki will opt-out, become free agent

    May 22, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    No matter how reasonable the Mavericks will try and make this move and no matter how likely they willl say it is that he re-signs, the fact is today’s move will send tremors throughout the NBA landscape examining this summer’s free agency. The move? ESPN’s Marc Stein reports that Dirk Nowiztki is expected to opt-out…

  9. NBA Draft: Yet more reasons to freak out about John Wall

    May 22, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    I’d probably come to your attention that John Wall is kind of a big deal. He’s been the anticipated No.1 overall selection since the start of the college basketball season, and has become one of the most hyped picks of the last decade. His upside is based not only on his ridiculous athleticism and talent,…

  10. Report: Chris Bosh gives Raptors five teams he wants to play for, wants to play with LeBron James

    May 22, 2010, 9:52 AM EDT

    UPDATE 5/22 9:52 am: Bosh’s agent has denied there is a list to our own Ira Winderman (writing for the South Florida Sun Sentinel). “I haven’t closed the door on anything,” (Henry) Thomas insisted. “I haven’t given Bryan any lists. There is no list. This is a process that is ongoing.” Nobody believes that, especially…

  11. Report: Nuggets in talks to extend Carmelo Anthony

    May 22, 2010, 12:03 AM EDT

    The Denver Nuggets aren’t going to wait around to find out if they’re going to be Cleveland’d or Toronto’d next summer when Carmelo Anthony hits the free agent market a year behind his famous friends. Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the Nuggets have scheduled face to face meetings with Melo’s representatives in the next…

  12. New Wizards owner thinks the NBA gives its owners too much rope to hang themselves with

    May 21, 2010, 4:22 PM EDT

    Ted Leonsis is going to make buddies with his NBA owner peers very quickly. Leonsis spoke to reporters on Friday and said that the NHL (whose Capitals are also owned by Leonsis) is currently “stronger” because their Collective Bargaining Agreement prevents owners from ingesting “stupid pills” as he put them, referring to large contracts which…

  13. After the NBA Lottery screwed them, where do the Nets go from here?

    May 20, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    So, that didn’t go so well for the Nyets. The franchise savior will be headed to Washington, or, if they lose their minds, Philadelphia. The odds of landing LeBron, Wade, Bosh have just shrunk to tiny proportions, and they’re looking at the third pick in a two-superstar-pick draft. That’s a pretty big fall on the…

  14. Celtics reserve Marquis Daniels' stepfather tasered, arrested during Celtics Magic Game 2

    May 19, 2010, 6:43 PM EDT

    From the department of messed up stories involving the parents of NBA veterans in the NBA Conference Finals: Celtics’ reserve Marquis Daniels’ stepfather Willie L. Buie was involved in a disturbance last night during the Celtics’ win over the Magic. The responding officers attempted to remove Buie, which he then fought, yelling profanities and swinging…

  15. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 2: Rajon Rondo may or may not have mastered the fine art of ninjitsu

    May 19, 2010, 1:02 AM EDT

    I would ask that you pay very close attention to what I am about to say. Imagine that you had just come to this planet from another world before the playoffs began. You have come on a mission to observe human culture, specifically, sporting events, specifically, professional basketball. You have no frame of reference for…

  16. Boston Celtics place foot to the throat, take 2-0 lead over Magic in Orlando

    May 18, 2010, 11:36 PM EDT

    Getcha brooms ready. Paul Pierce said last year while the Lakers were rolling the Magic in the Finals that the Celtics were Rottweilers and the Magic were poodles. So far the Celtics have bit the Magic in the throat and in Game 2 they shook the life out of them. But don’t misunderstand, the Magic…

  17. Sixers get No.2 pick in NBA Lottery, are changes afoot?

    May 18, 2010, 9:19 PM EDT

    The Philadelphia 76ers may not have won the John Wall sweepstakes, depending on what the Wizards do, but they still lucked out. They had a 6% chance at the No. 2 overall pick and stuck the landing. What’s interesting is that now the Sixers face a conundrum of their own if the Wizards select John…

  18. NBA Lottery: Let the debate begin, Wall or Turner for Wizards?

    May 18, 2010, 8:43 PM EDT

    This one won’t be a no-brainer. John Wall is a near consensus #1 overall player. His vision, athleticism, natural skill and length have drawn lofty phrases as strong as “best draft prospect since Carmelo Anthony.” And now the Wizards have the opportunity to select him with the first overall pick. Only problem? They already have…

  19. Washington Wizards win NBA Lottery

    May 18, 2010, 8:31 PM EDT

    From punchline to prominence. The Washington Wizards have gotten the break they needed to restart their franchise. The Wizards won the NBA lottery and will have the top pick in June’s draft. They will now face a world of options as to how to approach the future of their franchise. Gilbert Arenas is their starting…

  20. What a NBA lottery win would mean for five teams

    May 18, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    With the NBA Draft Lottery upon us, we thought we’d prognosticate upon five teams with a wide range of chances to gain the best choice tonight. New Jersey Nets: They have more on the line than any other team in tonight’s drawing. Drawing the top slot gives them not only the best player in the…

  21. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: Everything coming up Celtic Green

    May 16, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

    If they keep playing like this, who’s going to stop the Boston Celtics? Certainly not the Orlando Magic, who walked into Game 1 against the Celtics as heavy favorites, having swept their first two series of the playoffs only to get blownout for thrre quarters, make a furious comeback that came up short, and eventually…

  22. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1 Halftime: Celtic defense smothering all light from universe

    May 16, 2010, 4:34 PM EDT

    The Celtics lead 41-32 at the half of Game 1 behind a defensive performance that was stunning. If you’re going to write a book on playing championship level defense, you want to start by looking at what the Celtics did for a long stretch from the opening tip until about the seven minute mark of…

  23. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: The Redick-ulous Ray Allen matchup

    May 16, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    One is arguably the best jump shooter in the NBA, one of the best pure shooters in history, and one of the top five guys you want with the ball in his hand and an open look with the clock ready to expire. He’s an NBA champion, a roundball legend, and a primary component for…

  24. Can the Pistons make a gamechanger move by trading Rodney Stuckey?

    May 16, 2010, 10:11 AM EDT

    Remember when Joe Dumars was considered arguably the best general manager in the league behind maybe R.C. Buford in San Antonio? Seems like a lifetime ago. After signing Charlie Villanueva and Ben Gordon last summer, effectively vaporizing their 2010 cap space and a chance at a major impact signing this July, Dumars watched the team…

  25. NBA Playoffs Suns Lakers Game 1: The Lakers will have no part of Arizona immigration politics

    May 16, 2010, 10:08 AM EDT

    Those Lakers, always the marketing machine. The Suns last month made a public stand against the Arizona immigration law that has pretty much everyone up in arms one way or another. Following up their public statements of protest, the Suns wore their “Los Suns” jerseys against the Spurs for Game 3 of their playoff series.…
