  1. What will Avery Johnson's Nets look like defensively?

    Jun 21, 2010, 12:42 PM EST

    Unfortunately, the entirety of what we know about Avery Johnson as a coach comes from his experiences with essentially one roster and one team. There were roster moves — the Devin Harris-Jason Kidd trade being the most notable — but he was still working with essentially the same core throughout his tenure with the Mavs.…

  2. No arbitrary deadlines, conflicting reports over Doc Rivers' future in Boston

    Jun 21, 2010, 12:20 PM EST

    The Cleveland Cavaliers have conducted the most high-profile and widely publicized coaching search for two reasons. First and foremost, because the Cavs are fighting for LeBron’s services, and whichever coach they pick needs to be both palatable to James and suitable for life in the doomsday scenario. Second — and this is related to the…

  3. Pau Gasol and David Spade are the best of friends

    Jun 19, 2010, 6:00 PM EST

    Pau Gasol appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno as part of his post-Championship rounds, and apparently is now the buddy of co-guest David Spade. Or possibly a professional soccer player. I’m not really sure what to believe anymore.

  4. NBA draft: Even if the 76ers' decision is already made, they're continuing workouts

    Jun 19, 2010, 3:55 PM EST

    The Sixers posted a pretty interesting graphic on their website to entics season ticket buyers, and the internet a’sploded with something we kind of already knew: the team with the No. 2 pick in the draft seems set to select (gasp) the seemingly clear-cut second best prospect in the bunch. This is all very shocking,…

  5. Manute Bol passes away at 47

    Jun 19, 2010, 3:02 PM EST

    Former NBA player Manute Bol has reportedly passed away due to acute kidney failure and skin disease. He was just 47 years old, but Bol will forever be immortalized in NBA lore. Manute wasn’t exactly one of the league’s biggest stars, but he was one of its biggest stars. His long, lanky frame drew plenty…

  6. LeBron James actually makes an appearance at one of the rallies held in his honor

    Jun 19, 2010, 2:38 PM EST

    From Los Angeles to New York City, fans of teams with cap space from all around the country are mounting guerilla movements to entice LeBron James. Fans are practically pledging everything from their eternal fandom to their first-born children as payment for James’ services, and they’re holding parades, rallies, and animal sacrifices (just guessing on…

  7. Larry Riley denies that he's shopping Anthony Randolph

    Jun 19, 2010, 12:42 PM EST

    Anthony Randolph has been rumored to be on the Warriors’ trading block from pretty much the very second he arrived in Oakland. Even if the jury’s still out on whether or not an actualized Randolph is a realistic possibility, his combination of athleticism and skills would make him an appealing prospect to just about any…

  8. NBA Draft: Likely second-rounder Greivis Vasquez invited to attend

    Jun 18, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    It’s not always easy for a prospect to create legitimate buzz this close to the draft, but Maryland’s Greivis Vasquez seems to be doing just that. After weeks of draft speculation put Vasquez as a mid second-rounder, he could be climbing out of the first round entirely to nab one of the first round’s prized…

  9. Gilbert Arenas is getting back into shape with help from Tim Grover

    Jun 18, 2010, 1:02 PM EST

    I would say that Gilbert Arenas is running out of extra lives in the NBA, but the reality is that not many teams are willing to put a player of Gil’s pedigree and salary in Marbury-like exile. It was never going to be a realistic possibility for the Wizards to banish Arenas. Not with over…

  10. Fabricio Oberto to suit up for Argentina this summer

    Jun 18, 2010, 12:40 PM EST

    Soon-to-be ex-Wizard Fabricio Oberto has never been a major player on the domestic basketball scene, although he was a good complimentary piece in the Spurs’ 2007 title team. That said, he does has value as something of an elder statesman for Argentina’s national team. Fab is an important part of the Argentine big man rotation,…

  11. Ron Artest mythology may soon have a life of its own

    Jun 18, 2010, 12:35 PM EST

    Tales of Ron Artest’s zany exploits are hardly new to the NBA scene, but it seems that now that he’s a certified NBA champion, they’ll spiral brilliantly out of control. In the best possible way, of course. After a relatively quiet season for all things Ron, Artest busted out everything that makes him so endearing…

  12. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 7: Captain Obvious is reporting that Boston missed Kendrick Perkins

    Jun 18, 2010, 2:58 AM EST

    It’s not all that difficult to figure out how the Lakers won the NBA title while shooting an impressively awful 32.5% from the field. With the Laker bigs as active as ever on the offensive glass, L.A. managed 12 more field goal attempts and 20 more free throw attempts than the Celtics. Those are free…

  13. Steve Kerr claims that money wasn't the motivating factor in his departure

    Jun 16, 2010, 1:03 PM EST

    Steve Kerr’s departure from the Suns was a bit curious…until Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski chimed in with the punchline: Robert Sarver asked Kerr to take a 10% paycut. Typical Sarver, typical Suns. There’s just one catch: publicly, both Saver and Kerr deny that the money played a significant part in Kerr and the Suns’ divorce. From…

  14. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics: After all the hoopla, the technical foul subplot was irrelevant

    Jun 16, 2010, 11:53 AM EST

    When both Kendrick Perkins and Rasheed Wallace picked up six technical fouls in the playoffs, it seemed only a matter of time before Perk’s cursing and scowling Sheed’s tantrums disqualified one or both of them from a crucial playoff game. Only it never happened, and now with Game 7 the only one left on the…

  15. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 7: Kendrick Perkins is reportedly ruled out

    Jun 16, 2010, 10:52 AM EST

    Kendrick Perkins’ status for the series finale is a game-changer, and could quite literally decide the championship. This isn’t to say that the Lakers can’t beat the Celtics while Perkins is in the lineup or that the Celtics can’t win without him, but should Perk be forced to watch from the sidelines, the scale tips…

  16. Ding-dong, the Izzo saga is dead: Tom will stay at MSU

    Jun 15, 2010, 7:37 PM EST

    It’s done. After days of deliberation, more deliberation, and even more very public deliberation, Tom Izzo has decided to stay at Michigan State University and decline a rather substantial contract offered by the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Good riddance. At this point, the pros and cons have been…

  17. Jarrett Jack reportedly wants to be traded, but nobody bothered to tell Jarrett Jack

    Jun 15, 2010, 1:34 PM EST

    We know Hedo Turkoglu wants out of Toronto, we think Chris Bosh wants out of Toronto, and we thought we knew that Jarrett Jack wanted out of Toronto. It turns out the latter isn’t exactly true, as rumors of Jack’s discontent with the Raptors organization appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely fabricated.…

  18. Raymond Felton's future with the Bobcats as uncertain as ever

    Jun 15, 2010, 12:09 PM EST

    While it’s incredibly clear that guys like LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will be paid top dollar this off-season, establishing the market for the moderately-skilled free agents is a bit more complex. There will certainly be some teams looking to spend their cap room this summer, regardless of whether that’s on James, Joe Johnson, Carlos…

  19. Orlando Magic decide to get really creative, change up their logo

    Jun 15, 2010, 11:24 AM EST

    A logo change for the Magic has been in the works for some time now, but images of Orlando’s new logo have finally surfaced today. I could tell you it was revolutionary, a beautifully creative design etched by the hands of a visionary. Or, I guess, I could just show you this wonder of modern…

  20. Bargain-hunting Bobcats hold free agent "mini-camp"

    Jun 15, 2010, 10:54 AM EST

    Two teams are still alive and vying for the title, but the other 28? They’re taking Tom Izzo out for steak dinners, preparing for the NBA draft, and trying to figure out ways to leave nameless, non-specific messages on LeBron James’ voicemail. Or in the case of the Bobcats, doing what just about every NBA…

  21. NBA draft: Ankle injury ends Avery Bradley's workout plans

    Jun 14, 2010, 8:00 AM EST

    According to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express, possible lottery pick Avery Bradley has suffered a “mild to medium soft left ankle sprain” that will effectively end his pre-draft workout tour. This isn’t good news for Bradley. His injury hardly appears to be serious, but group workouts are exactly the kind of setting that would showcase…

  22. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics: Odom is as Odom does

    Jun 11, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    Lamar Odom is a perplexing player. He possesses an enviable skill set and considerable talent, but after a career’s worth of opportunities, roles, teams, and coaches, no one has quite found the magic button that would turn Odom into a superstar. Juxtapose the ongoing Odom conundrum with Andrew Bynum, who is more of a conventional…

  23. Sixers hire Austin Toros' coach Quin Snyder as head of player development

    Jun 11, 2010, 11:15 AM EST

    The 2009-2010 season was already a fantastic one for the D-League, with a record number of NBA call-ups, incredible success for individual players like Reggie Williams and Anthony Tolliver, and record attendance and viewership. It seems the 2010-2011 season will pick up right where this year left off, as there’s already one notable D-League call-up…

  24. The Wizards aren't even working out Evan Turner

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:59 AM EST

    John Wall is a can’t-miss prospect. He’s going to be a star in the NBA for a long, long time, and he’s immensely talented. So much so that the only suspense between the draft lottery and the draft itself concerned whether or not the Wizards could possibly talk themselves out of taking Wall with the…

  25. Leonsis won't be bringing back the 'Bullets' moniker

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:28 AM EST

    UPDATE 11:09 AM: Leonsis further clarified his stance on a potential name-change on his blog (also courtesy of Mike Prada): “In regards to a name change of the team, we have a lot of work to do right now on re-crafting the team itself, focusing on the draft, our number 1 pick, free agency, selling…
