  1. David Lee's historic triple double

    Apr 3, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    David Lee is one of the polarizing guys for barstool pundits in the NBA. Half the people think he can’t defend, has benefited from Mike D’Antoni’s run and gun (even if the pace-factored stats suggest otherwise), and simply isn’t that good. His supporters think that he possesses a unique set of skills you rarely see…

  2. REPORT: Hurley Sr., Karl Malone, Scottie Pippen will be announced to Hall of Fame

    Apr 3, 2010, 8:39 AM EDT

    UPDATE 7:00PM EST: The Boston Globe is reporting that Dennis Johnson, who should have been inducted years ago, is also among the class. (via FanHouse) The Newark Star Ledger is reporting that Bobby Hurley Sr., Scottie Pippen, and Karl Malone will be announced as inductees to the Basketball Hall of Fame Monday during the NCAA…

  3. KG profanely upset with pro-Durant reffing

    Apr 1, 2010, 2:08 AM EDT

    So long story short, Kevin Garnett was so upset about the officiating last night in Boston’s 109-104 loss to the Thunder in Boston last night that he dropped an F-bomb in his post-game presser (Warning: NSFW, courtesy of Red’s Army). He said he felt like they were playing “Michael (expletive) Jordan,” referencing Kevin Durant shot…

  4. Baseline to Baseline, where we had ourselves a heck of a night

    Apr 1, 2010, 12:18 AM EDT

    What happened Wednesday while you were challenging Akinator… Cavs 101 Bucks 98: The Bucks are terrible at drawing fouls, fifth worst in the league, actually. Cleveland’s very good. So while the Bucks can probably rightfully complain about a 45-9 free throw advantage, they can’t complain too much. This team looked like they were willing to…

  5. A tale of two contenders

    Mar 31, 2010, 11:46 PM EDT

    The Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers are the crown jewels of the league. Both lead their respective conferences, both will have homecourt advantage through their conference Finals, both are elite. And Wednesday they provide a fascinating cross-examination of one another. The Lakers mailed one in in Atlanta, getting wiped off the map by the…

  6. LeBron may be 'too busy' for Team USA this summer

    Mar 31, 2010, 7:34 PM EDT

    LeBron James was a huge reason the United States took home the gold in Bejiing. Makes sense, since he’s the best basketball player on the planet and all. It was a great experience for him, for the team, for the country, and the banner yet waived. But this summer? It’s a whole other deal. LeBron…

  7. Phil Jackson has a 'Machine' problem

    Mar 31, 2010, 7:11 PM EDT

    Sasha Vujacic doesn’t matter. Let’s be clear on that. He was marginally okay two season ago during the Lakers run to the Finals, and was subsequently abused in all sorts of ways by Ray Allen. He regressed back to form last year, and has stayed about there. He’s a streak shooter that picks up too…

  8. Did Antoine Wright run smack about THE Michael Jordan?

    Mar 30, 2010, 9:49 AM EDT

    Antoine Wright isn’t a bad player. Good defender, that will likely get better with age, and he can knock down some shots. But he’s not really considered elite. Which makes the fact that he was apparently “running smack” about the GOAT more than a little surprising. Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports that Bobcats…

  9. NBA Playoffs: If the Lakers are inevitable, do you want them early or late?

    Mar 29, 2010, 1:58 AM EDT

    Take a look at our NBA’s Race to the Playoffs. Go on. Acquaint yourself. It’s a mess. Particularly the Western Conference. There are seven teams that could end up in the 8th spot, staring down the Lakers (we’re tossing out the Grizzlies, love them as I do. No way anyone’s going in the tank like…

  10. Baseline to Baseline: 'Manu Ginobili wins at life' edition

    Mar 29, 2010, 12:47 AM EDT

    What happened while you were putting a snake in your mouth… Spurs 94 Celtics 73: Such a good game at the half. Such a demolish in the second half. Yikesabees. You may remember these Celtics from such hits as “Christmas Through Two Weeks Ago” and “That Time The Nets Beat Them.” The Celtics had 30…

  11. NBA Draft: Say hello (and goodbye) to Ekpe Udoh

    Mar 28, 2010, 7:58 PM EDT

    The Baylor Bears were downed by the Duke Blue Devils behind the same thing that helped the Mountaineers sink the Kentucky Wildcats. Killer three-point shooting. But in the midst of that, the Bears showed that most likely they, not the Coach K’s crew, had the most NBA ready talent in star guard LaceDarius Dunn and…

  12. Carlos Boozer thinks homecourt will make this year different for Jazz

    Mar 28, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    Utah made the 2007 Western Conference Finals, which seemed to validate the foundation of this Jazz team as a championship contender. Lost in that picture was that they faced the Tracy McGrady led (and therefore doomed) Rockets in the first round, then caught the biggest break ever when they got to face the Golden State…

  13. Joe Dumars will try to work some magic with the MLE

    Mar 28, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    Joe Dumars busted the bank open last summer, hoping to land significant improvements on the top free agents while everyone else was waiting on 2010. The results have been an absolute disaster. Ben Gordon, even when he’s healthy, is not the dynamic instant-offense he was in Chicago. Charlie Villanueva has not flourished with a different…

  14. Cavs going all out to welcome Z back

    Mar 28, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    The Cavs host the Kings at 3PM EST, in a routine regular season game devoid of much drama. Tyreke Evans will miss the game with lingering concussion problems. The Cavs have locked up their division and are within reach of locking up the division, so they have little to play for. The Kings are playing…

  15. Hornets officially eliminated from playoffs contention

    Mar 28, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Two years ago, the New Orleans Hornets were entering the playoffs as a young, up and coming team. Led by Chris Paul, the Hornets featured a young, dynamic lineup, and surprised everyone by not only advancing to the second round, but pushing the Spurs to the brink of elimination in a seven game series, losing…

  16. NBA Draft: What did we learn about the Wildcats' draft stock?

    Mar 28, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Another day, another upset. This time, the Kentucky Wildcats fell, losing to a West Virginia team that shot the lights out. As NBA fans, we have to look at this ridiculously loaded Wildcats team and ask if we saw anything on their way out that changes our consideration of their draft stock. Here’s what we…

  17. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 27, 2010, 9:14 PM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were setting fire to the urn containing the ashes of your bracket you already burned… Jazz 103 Wizards 87: The Jazz were everywhere defensively in the second and third quarters. Stretch and swarm, repeat. Against a pretty bad offensive squad. The Wizards did make a nice run in the late…

  18. What does Gasol's return mean for Thabeet?

    Mar 27, 2010, 8:14 PM EDT

    Our Race to the Playoffs tell you that the Grizzlies still have an outside shot at the playoffs. If they’re going to keep that hope alive, they’ll need Marc Gasol who has missed five games with a partially torn neck muscle. Luckily, the normally iron-clad Gasol is making a fast comeback. Even with the torn…

  19. Wizards intend to bring Arenas back

    Mar 27, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld said Saturday that the team will not attempt to void Gilbert Arenas’ contract next year, saying “people forget that he’s still one of the best players in this league.” The Washington Post Arenas was sentenced Friday to probation, but no jail time for charges stemming from his infamous altercation involving guns…

  20. No seriously, the Wolves think Darko is part of the answer

    Mar 27, 2010, 3:36 PM EDT

    After our little talk this morning about whether the Wolves are worse than the Nets this season, we have an interesting look at what they’re thinking long-term. Sure, their draft was a complete bust, Al Jefferson has been clashing with management, Kevin Love is the best player in the doghouse at this moment, and Corey…

  21. With a new financial reality, Bobcats turn to the future

    Mar 27, 2010, 2:46 PM EDT

    People were mystified when the Bobcats canceled their summer league team last year. That team, with nothing but big, bad contracts for middle-age (NBA-wise) players needed to develop their young guys more than anyone. But owner Bob Johnson was feeling the hammer of the economy and the Cats just couldn’t justify the expense. There were…

  22. Amar'e doesn't like McGrady professionally or personally

    Mar 27, 2010, 1:03 PM EDT

    The N.Y. Post has a tidbit this morning regarding Amar’e Stoudemire. Apparently when Stoudemire was in high school, debating making the leap to the NBA, he approached McGrady at a football game to ask some advice, and McGrady brushed him off. Not a good move, bro. Stoudemire told the post he doesn’t like McGrady as…

  23. NBA Draft: Where is the Evan Turner train at now?

    Mar 27, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Evan Turner had a rollercoaster season. Started out with a dominant run that opened eyes. Then he broke his back on a dunk gone bad. Literally. Kid broke multiple vertebrae. He actually came back from that injury, and not only did he come back, he came back in half the time he was supposed to.…

  24. Nets avoid being worst ever in history, proving they may not be worst this season

    Mar 27, 2010, 10:25 AM EDT

    Way back in November, the New Jersey Nets lost to the Miami Heat on a Saturday evening. It was Jersey’s tenth loss to start the season, capped by a dagger from Dwyane Wade at the buzzer. One of those incredible shots that only the top players in the league can usually hit. And while we…

  25. NBA Draft: Xavier versus Kansas State ramifications

    Mar 27, 2010, 8:07 AM EDT

    It was a ridiculous game. Back and forth, double-overtime, hanging on every shot, up and down, pure madness, Gus-Johnson-joygasm, loony-tunes ridiculous game. Xavier and K-State played one of the finest games in the history of the tournament Thursday night, with K-State advancing to the Elite 8 after a 101-96 victory in double overtime. So what…
