  1. Great news: West's season has been quiet

    Mar 26, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Delonte West is completely unique in every conceivable way. Beyond his personality, though, West’s life has some equally unique — at least by NBA standards — challenges; West was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a fact which became public in the aftermath of a pretty bizarre incident involving West, a motorcycle, and three guns. The memory…

  2. More than one way to win in 2010 free agency

    Mar 25, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    As teams around the league in an attempt to clear cap space for this summer’s historic free agency period, the long-standing sentiment is that for many of these teams, it’s LeBron, Wade, Bosh or bust. From a ticket-selling perspective, that’s probably true; a lot of fan bases will consider anything less a failure, and may…

  3. Jerrells called up from D-League, but not

    Mar 25, 2010, 1:03 PM EDT

    The San Antonio Spurs have kinda sorta been committed to Curtis Jerrells since training camp. He’s been a Spur even though he wasn’t a Spur. Catch my drift? They paid him some serious coin in training camp ($75,000, according to ShamSports), presumably to stick around with San Antonio’s D-League affiliate, the Austin Toros. So he…

  4. Frank looking ahead, hopeful for another coaching gig

    Mar 25, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets are Lawrence Frank’s team. Or at least they were. But Lawrence Frank is a basketball coach, and coaches coach teams. They are defined by what they do, and what they do is coach. So is he still a coach if he doesn’t have a team? Does the coach, the person, have…

  5. Bosh has never had the chance he deserves

    Mar 25, 2010, 11:54 AM EDT

    If last night’s 26-point loss to the Jazz (and seventh loss in their last ten games) didn’t make it painfully obvious, I’ll spell it out for you: the Toronto Raptors are not a particularly good basketball team. They have some talent at the top of their roster, but are painfully thin at some positions and…

  6. Ginobili not looking to play across the pond

    Mar 24, 2010, 8:07 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili may have had an opportunity to be the first legitimate NBA star to jump (back) into a league overseas, but that won’t be the case. From Don Harris of Manu Ginobili’s agent Herb Rudoy tells News 4 WOAI that the Spurs star guard will finish his career in the NBA. Internet reports…

  7. Arenas can't even play virtual basketball

    Mar 24, 2010, 6:56 PM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas will not be playing any more professional basketball this season. Hey may not be playing next season, either, and his playing future is very much up in the air. Plus, to make matters worse, he won’t even be available for video game basketball next year. EA Sports has been conducting online fan voting…

  8. Paul still wants to give it a go for Team USA

    Mar 24, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

    The FIBA World Championships will kick off in August, which means it’s far too early for Team USA to have solidified its 12-man roster. That said, Chris Paul, provided he’s healthy enough to play, is a lock. He’s still interested in playing alongside America’s finest, and he’s the best point guard in the game today.…

  9. Did Bucks lend helping hand to a division rival?

    Mar 24, 2010, 5:48 PM EDT

    Intra-division trades are fairly rare. They happen when teams are desperate for a change, or have eyes for a player they can’t pass up, but otherwise, teams are generally reluctant to face the possible consequences of divisional dealings four times a year. It’s one thing to see one of your former players find prosperity elsewhere,…

  10. Martin progressing, slowly but surely

    Mar 24, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    The Nuggets desperately need to be healthy for the playoffs, and that desperation begins with Kenyon Martin’s recovery from patella tendinitis. His size and defense are going to be crucial if Denver plans on crashing the post-season party, and Joey Graham just isn’t going to cut it. Neither is Johan Petro. The Nuggets are a…

  11. Jackson suffering, along with Bobcats' playoff hopes

    Mar 23, 2010, 11:59 PM EDT

    The lesser teams in the Eastern Conference playoff race — Miami, Charlotte, Toronto, and Chicago — have set themselves up for plenty of intrigue over the season’s closing stretch. The competition between the four squads for just three playoff spots has been incredibly competitive, and no team has any games to spare at this point.…

  12. Wizards' honeymoon with Blatche 2.0 apparently over

    Mar 23, 2010, 11:39 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche has never been questioned because of his frame or his basketball skills. His talent level hasn’t been doubted, because he’s capable of being an elite power forward. That is, if he could put that frame and those skills to good use. Blatche’s biggest limitation has always been the goings-on between his ears, as…

  13. The NBA's forgotten demographic

    Mar 23, 2010, 7:05 PM EDT

    The NBA makes all kinds of concerted efforts to account for and appeal to their target demographics. There are ticket packages designed for families with young children, dance teams that draw in the ogling masses, and sponsorships that often speak to very particular audiences. The league is even willing to fiddle with its uniforms for…

  14. Wolves make roster moves for playoff push

    Mar 23, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    After dropping 13 of their last 13 games, the Minnesota Timberwolves knew it was time to make a change. So they’re bringing in the big guns, and likely re-signing two-time MVP Brian Cardinal for the home stretch. The Wolves are just 28 games out of the final playoff spot in the West, meaning that Cardinal’s…

  15. Anthony only the latest to be featured in Knick rumors

    Mar 23, 2010, 1:27 PM EDT

    Pick an All-Star. Any All-Star. Okay, are you ready? The Knicks want him. Badly. And they are going to wait as long as it takes for him to become a free agent, and then sign him. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get to the specifics. Specific as in an actual…

  16. What does the future hold for Manu Ginobili?

    Mar 23, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    Of all the relevant names involved in FREE AGENT FRENZY 2010, Manu Ginobili’s hardly gets the play it deserves. He’s a former All-Star, a two-time champion, and has posted six straight seasons with a PER of 22 or better (including this one, which is supposedly a down year). He’s 32 years old, and that can’t…

  17. Iguodala is hurting, playing through pain

    Mar 23, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    It’s not easy being a Sixers fan. Philadelphia’s record makes most of their games at this point in the year pretty irrelevant, as they’re safely out of the playoff hunt but not bad enough to secure a high lottery pick. At 24-47, the Sixers are 12th in the East and lead only the Nets in…

  18. Moore in the process of hypnotizing and duping another team

    Mar 23, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    Mikki Moore has magical powers. I’m convinced. How else would you explain the fact that he has actually persuaded NBA teams to pay him money to play basketball? There was a point where Moore was decent. He was hard-working, and somehow developed a reputation for being ‘rugged’ despite being a pretty poor finisher inside and…

  19. Terry ditches the mask, doctors be damned

    Mar 23, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    Jason Terry was mask-less for the first time last night since having surgery to repair a broken orbital bone. According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas, doctors had recommended that Terry wear the mask for the rest of the season, but JET insisted he would ditch it “as soon as the feeling returned to the…

  20. Shaq apparently taking his rehab seriously

    Mar 22, 2010, 12:56 PM EDT

    Signs that you know Shaquille O’Neal and his team are still in the honeymoon phase: He actually shows on screens when the coaching staff asks him to. (Well actually…) He hasn’t completely ripped the team’s star player. (If you think he won’t one day rip LeBron, you weren’t paying attention when he left Phoenix. If…

  21. Oh happy day: the Warriors are officially for sale

    Mar 22, 2010, 12:37 PM EDT

    The number of NBA teams with truly abysmal futures is dwindling by the day. Mike Dunleavy and the Clippers went their separate ways, and they have cap space, a high draft pick, and Blake Griffin’s return to look forward to. The Nets, despite their woeful record, have a young, growing core and fancy themselves contenders…

  22. Carter is finding Lawson's former role 'just right'

    Mar 22, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    Ty Lawson has been cleared to play by team doctors after missing three weeks of action with a shoulder injury, but he’s finding that his Denver home isn’t quite how he left it. Sure, everything looks okay on the outside. The Nuggets are still in second place in the West, and though they’ve faced some…

  23. Breaking news: Mike D'Antoni doesn't totally hate defense

    Mar 22, 2010, 11:51 AM EDT

    The consumption of sports is so widespread that broadcasts often create inbred opinion; two different people watch the same broadcast, inevitably assume some of the ideas and views expressed by broadcasters as their own, and mistake the other person’s confirmation of that view as legitimate when in fact they’re merely confirming on the basis of…

  24. D-League standout standing out for the Wiz

    Mar 19, 2010, 12:59 PM EDT

    Alonzo Gee, who was tearing it up for the Austin Toros just over two weeks ago, is tearing it up for the Washington Wizards. As such, he’s earned his second 10-day contract from the Wiz, and could remain a fixture with the team beyond that if he continues to impress. Gee exemplifies what has been…

  25. Tyler cuts phase one of the 'amateur pro' experiment short

    Mar 19, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    Jeremy Tyler made history this season when he left his high school as a highly-touted senior prospect to play professionally in Europe. Now, he’s made history again by setting the record for the longest trip of shame back to the United States with his tail between his legs. Tyler has called it quits on playing…
