  1. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 25, 2010, 12:46 AM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were remembering there is no spoon, nor floating kitty… Hawks 86, Magic 84: Best. Finish. Ever. Of The Season. Words are inadequate. Seriously. Just watch the video. This felt like a second round playoff matchup because both teams played very good defense. Atlanta got a signature win, a confidence booster.…

  2. Nets exec decides to make lemonade out of raw sewage

    Mar 24, 2010, 9:07 PM EDT

    We told you a little tale of the Nets CEO getting into a shouting match with a fan with a bag over his head. That was pretty ugly. So with the Nets facing the Kings in a “must-win” game for the team vying to avoid being the worst ever, the frustrated front office man, Nets…

  3. Is the league trying to shove Warriors owner Cohan out the door?

    Mar 24, 2010, 8:42 PM EDT

    The Mercury News reports that the Warriors have hired Galatioto Sports Partners to facilitate the sale of their franchise. GSP is an outsourced sports finance and management firm that can help organize the sale in a professional manner. But as the Mercury News points out, there’s something spooky about the involvement of GSP. Not only…

  4. Gilbert Arenas may have pressured Javaris Crittenton into cover-up

    Mar 23, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

    In the sentencing memo by U.S. prosecutors for Gilbert Arenas’ case, a wrinkle has been revealed. Prosecutors outlined a text sent to Crittenton which they say was forwarded on behalf of Arenas, telling Javaris Crittenton not to mention their dispute over a card game which sparked the debacle. That Arenas isn’t facing further charges for…

  5. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 22, 2010, 1:35 AM EDT

    What happened while you were partying/rioting about health care reform… Hawks 119 Spurs 114: This was a classic. Two teams that had answers for every big shot the other one hit. Al Horford was considered a strange All-Star pick but he looked like it in this game. Monster plays down the stretch including a massive…

  6. Would the Wolves choose Darko over Kevin Love?

    Mar 21, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    The Wolves have made their fair share of interesting decisions in the first year under David Kahn. Drafting Ricky Rubio when there were indications he may not elect to cross the ocean. Then drafting another point guard in Jonny Flynn. Then signing another point guard in Ramon Sessions. And that’s before you get into signing…

  7. LeBron makes rare public statement regarding 2010

    Mar 21, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    If you’re a fan of athletes handling their marketing well, you have to be impressed with how LeBron James has handled the questions surrounding his future this summer in the Free Agency Summer of Doom. Even if you’re absolutely convinced one way or the other on him leaving or staying, he’s done a fantastic job…

  8. Deron Williams: Chicken Dancer

    Mar 21, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

    And now, apropos of nothing, is Deron Williams doing the chicken dance. Let’s set the stage. The Jazz put an outright beatdown on the Hornets last night, especially since David West was ejected after a questionable flagrant two and Chris Paul’s still not back. So Deron Williams got to ice his shoulder and arm, and…

  9. Ilgauskas able to re-sign with Cavs Monday

    Mar 21, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Zydrunas Ilgauskas comes home this week. Using one of the most controversial loopholes in NBA dealings today, the Cavs traded Ilgauskas to Washington in return for Antawn Jamison. After being bought out by the Wizards, Ilgauaskas could have signed with any team outside the Cavs or waited till March 22nd. March 22nd is tomorrow, and…

  10. How much did Kansas loss hurt Aldrich and Collins' draft stock?

    Mar 21, 2010, 11:06 AM EDT

    Yesterday was not a banner day for the University of Kansas basketball team. They fell from being the prohibitive favorite to win the title to being the victim of what many are calling the biggest upset in NCAA history. Their star, Sharron Collins leaves shrouded in failure after winning the title in 2008, but failing…

  11. The players' union ain't buying what Stern's selling

    Mar 21, 2010, 9:37 AM EDT

    At All-Star Weekend, Commissioner Stern delivered his state of the league address. In it, he fired the opening salvo in the battle that will be fought in the boardroom and in the media over the 2011 CBA, by claiming on behalf of ownership that they will lose $400 million this year. The union, however, is…

  12. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 21, 2010, 1:26 AM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were setting your bracket on fire… Bulls 98 Sixers 84: Welcome back, Derrick Rose. The Bulls snapped a ten game losing streak behind Rose, who Jrue Holiday couldn’t stop if he was Doctor Octupus. The good news for the Sixers is Marreese Speights got some burn and showed up with…

  13. Are the Celtics "back"?

    Mar 20, 2010, 9:29 PM EDT

    It’s been four games since the Cavaliers outran the Boston Celtics, since the “When are they going to turn it on?” panic button hit its zenith. Four games. Four wins. The last two actually matter, road games against two Texas teams, including a come from behind win over a Mavericks team at full strength Saturday…

  14. Kelenna Azabuike will likely not opt out

    Mar 20, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Matt Steinmetz of CSN is reporting that Kelenna Azubuike will not opt-out for next year, keeping him with the Warriors for approximately $3.3 million. Azubuike told Steinmetz, “That’s the logical thing to do.” It’s a deep free agency class, and Azubuike could end up getting lost in the shuffle, even with as many teams with…

  15. Free Agency 2010: The LeBron-Johnson possibility

    Mar 20, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Ric Bucher of ESPN has a report today including information from a source discussing LeBron James and the 2010 Free Agency Summer of Doom. The source contends that Hawks guard Joe Johnson may be the King’s preferred partner in crime if he heads beyond the sunny gates of Cleveland. Bucher outlines how Johnson would absorb…

  16. More good news: No tear for Bynum's Achilles

    Mar 20, 2010, 4:13 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum hasn’t made it through a season the past two years without a major injury. It looks like he may have dodged a bullet and be on his way to a (mostly) full season. We told you last night Bynum suffered what was diagnosed as a strained Achilles tendon. The sound you hear whooshing…

  17. Indianapolis, Kansas City, and the changing arena economy

    Mar 20, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    What do you look at to tell if a team is doing well? Attendance, right? After all, the way to tell how good a team is if they have fans coming to games.  Low attendance means you’re not making money. Sure, the Clippers are the exception, but it’s L.A. Everything’s overpriced. But attendance is still…

  18. Good news: X-rays negative for Evans' jaw

    Mar 20, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    The NBA world had one eye on next year’s rookies today and one eye on the probably Rookie of the Year this year. Last night we let you know about Tyreke Evans’ concussion and other head injuries sustained against the Bucks. There was rampant concern that the Kings were going to announce that Evans was…

  19. The most predictable game, ever

    Mar 20, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    We all knew the Lakers were going to slaughter the Wolves last night. You, me, your cousin Vinny, your mailman, the stoner who changes your oil at Jiffy Lube, your third grade science teacher, and this guy. What’s funny is that reading ye old blogosphere this morning is how resoundingly according to form the game…

  20. Amar'e Stoudemire… is back

    Mar 20, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    It’s a sign of how quickly public perception moves that Amar’e Stoudemire was considered a liability as soon as just two years after he was an MVP candidate. Stoudemire had a rough run from the time GM Steve Kerr brought in Shaquille O’Neal, and was considered so much of a trade asset that his value…

  21. Jerry Sloan shoves official, may face suspension

    Mar 20, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Ah, late March. When winter gives its last gasp, the flowers begin to bloom, baseball season starts to ramp up, and the Jazz start coming apart at the seams. The Jazz, after going on an absurd run throughout the first two months of the year, have returned to their home planet. After a thrilling, come-from-behind…

  22. Is the Pritchard Blazer empire crumbling?

    Mar 20, 2010, 9:54 AM EDT

    The Blazers were in ruins. The ‘Jailblazers’ moniker was firmly etched upon them. They needed a complete overhaul, and hope seemed lightyears away. Then Kevin Pritchard entered on a rainbow riding a unicorn. He spread his magic across the land and brought in stellar acquisition after stellar acquisition through the draft (with a little bit…

  23. Pacers next team in the clearance aisle

    Mar 19, 2010, 3:58 PM EDT

    Michael K. Ozanian of Forbes is reporting that the Indiana Pacers owner Herb Simon will receive and offer for $230 million or less in the next two months. While Simon will still make a killing on the investment after purchasing the team for $10 million back in ’83, when you look at the standard rate…

  24. Luol Deng will not be joining us for some time

    Mar 18, 2010, 10:07 PM EDT

    The Bulls lost Luol Deng last season late and a short-term injury wound up costing him the rest of the year. This year Deng suffered a much less severe injury, a strained calf, but is still having trouble getting back on the floor. The Bulls thought Deng might be back by Saturday, but after tweaking…

  25. Boston's got a hard road to hoe

    Mar 18, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    Boston’s been shrugging off accusations that their problem isn’t a lack of effort but a lack of talent against top teams for months. They’ve said the phrase “these games don’t matter” about a million times in the last month. But if the Celtics want to avoid facing one of the top teams in the first…
