  1. Jackson to renew his tour for a coaching gig this summer

    Mar 19, 2010, 11:34 AM EDT

    Mark Jackson still wants to make the jump from NBA broadcaster to NBA coach, and in the long and proud tradition of former players finding jobs with clipboards somewhere in the L, he’ll likely get it. The rumored candidates for his services, per Ken Berger of CBS Sports, are the Nets and the Clippers: One…

  2. Howard moves one step closer to suspension

    Mar 19, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Last night, Dwight Howard picked up a technical foul with the Magic nursing a two-point lead in overtime against the Heat. Not good. Orlando lived, because the Magic are a better team with better chemistry and more depth. That one point the Heat gained off of the technical free throw bore only fleeting significance, as…

  3. Lawson eyes return next week

    Mar 19, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    The Denver Nuggets are in an odd place. They’re championship contenders, but conditional ones; if they’re going to compete for a title, they need to be clicking and they need to be healthy. Kenyon Martin still has some more time on the shelf, but the Nuggets could take a big hop towards a full rotation…

  4. Harden to miss 2-4 weeks with strained right hamstring

    Mar 12, 2010, 1:21 PM EDT

    According to Darnell Mayberry, James Harden could be out for the next four weeks after straining his right hamstring. Harden’s injury has some pretty significant playoff implications for the Thunder, though it shouldn’t affect their claim to a post-season berth; OKC is a full six games ahead of 9th place Memphis, meaning it would take…

  5. No surprise: Green wants to stay in OKC

    Mar 12, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Is there anyone in OKC who doesn’t want to stay with the Thunder? They’re the closest thing the NBA has to an “it” team: a young, talented core, a smart, upcoming coach, a new NBA city with an energized fan base, and what could, should, and likely will be the first playoff appearance in Thunder…

  6. NBA's statistical revolution bringing real change, more winning

    Mar 12, 2010, 11:48 AM EDT

    Advocates for the use of statistical analysis in basketball are called many things: stat geeks, dorks, nerds, people who JUST NEED TO WATCH THE GAMES!!!, etc. Jokes are made about pocket-protectors, mothers’ basements, and middle-aged virgins. And for what? The field and the data are hardly assuming of anything other than numerical findings, and best…

  7. Expectation a tricky thing for Karl's battle with cancer

    Mar 12, 2010, 11:03 AM EDT

    George Karl’s current battle with throat cancer will have some fairly profound implications. The most notable of which will likely have nothing to do with basketball at all. But that hasn’t stopped Karl from keeping his eye to a potential return to the Nuggets later this season, optimally in time for Denver’s postseason run. From…

  8. The waiting game has paid off for OKC

    Mar 11, 2010, 11:56 AM EDT

    Many, many moons ago, Oklahoma City stole away a basketball team. But a couple of moons before that, they borrowed one for awhile. The New Orleans Hornets, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, needed a temporary home and a temporary fan base. So they went local, traveled to the nearby (relatively) OKC, and set up…

  9. Stoudemire may not have a foot out the door after all

    Mar 11, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    It’s been all but assumed that when free agency opens this summer, Amar’e Stoudemire will already be on a flight out of Phoenix headed toward another team. Maybe Miami, maybe not. But his future seemed set for any team with cap space that wasn’t the Suns, a move which would leave Steve Nash as the…

  10. Wizards to play five games in six days

    Mar 11, 2010, 10:43 AM EDT

    The NBA knows what you want. That’s why it’s FANtastic! So when Commissioner Stern searched through the deepest, darkest recesses of the collective fan unconscious, and has given every basketball enthusiast what they really, truly desire: a ton of Washington Wizards game in as short of a stretch as possible. Michael Lee of the Washington…

  11. Pistons should protect Stuckey at all costs

    Mar 10, 2010, 9:12 PM EDT

    UPDATE 9:12 pm: Stuckey has been cleared to practice by team doctors. However, no date has been set yet for when he will return to game action 11:54 am: Nobody quite knows what’s ailing Rodney Stuckey physically, and that’s a frightening thing. Professional basketball players, like professional athletes of any kind, put their bodies through…

  12. Lakers add new wrinkle to home court advantage at STAPLES

    Mar 10, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    Last night’s game between the Lakers and the Raptors was an absolute doozy. Toronto attacked, attacked, and attacked, and the once mighty Laker defense looked absolutely pitiful at times. Jarrett Jack got to the rim at will, Chris Bosh just put a stamp on his typically excellent production, and Andrea Bargnani threw in 21 points…

  13. Yes, Kevin Durant still likes OKC

    Mar 10, 2010, 12:13 PM EDT

    Not every NBA superstar is enamored by the mythology of the big city. Kevin Durant combines the smoothness of his game with incredibly evident passion on the court, but off of it? KD’s just a chill bro. From Mike Baldwin of the Oklahoman: “I was watching the Larry Bird-Magic Johnson documentary the other day,” Durant…

  14. Jordan actually present this time around, and it's not a good thing

    Mar 10, 2010, 11:07 AM EDT

    Michael Jordan’s majority ownership of the Charlotte Bobcats was announced just over a week ago, but his approach is already drastically different. Namely, it seems like he actually cares. I’m not necessarily sold that he does, but for once, post-retirement Jordan is trying to sell us on himself the way he’s always tried to sell…

  15. Bulls temporarily fall out of playoff picture

    Mar 10, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    The bottom half of the Eastern Conference playoff teams may not be the best teams in the world (especially compared to their cross-conference counterparts), but each is surprisingly competitive and quite entertaining on some level or another. Plus, if you’re privileged to have NBA League Pass, you’ll be able to watch five capable, hungry teams…

  16. Sheed stops shooting threes, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse arrive

    Mar 9, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    It’s either a delightful happenstance or a sign of the impending apocalypse: after shooting blanks from the arc all season long, Rasheed Wallace has finally stopped chucking threes at a ridiculous rate. From Zach Lowe of CelticsHub: Rasheed Wallace has taken 3 three-pointers combined in the last three games. This is not quite as infrequent…

  17. Jamal Crawford is finally playoff-bound

    Mar 9, 2010, 10:42 AM EDT

    Look, he’s a veteran. He knows the tricks of the trade, the ins and outs, the goings-on. He’s been around the block once or twice, and at almost 30 years old, this isn’t exactly his first rodeo. Only, this is his first rodeo. Or will be, rather. After a long career of playing for teams…

  18. The other Lopez is growing up

    Mar 9, 2010, 10:27 AM EDT

    Robin Lopez was able to play alongside his brother, Brook, at Stanford before both were drafted into the NBA in 2008. But while Brook’s production has skyrocketed him to a near-elite class of NBA centers (albeit while playing for the worst team in the league) during his short NBA career, Robin was buried behind Shaquille…

  19. Barnes among those looking to get paid this summer

    Mar 8, 2010, 5:12 AM EDT

    Matt Barnes played some terrific defense in Orlando’s 96-94 victory over the Lakers, he stood toe-to-toe with one of the game’s fiercest competitors, and he pump faked a ball in Kobe’s face. That’s more than enough to dub Monday, March 8th, something of a Matt Barnes appreciation day, particularly among the internet’s sometimes vicious anti-Kobe…

  20. What to buy the NBA player who has everything

    Mar 5, 2010, 1:26 PM EDT

    NBA players make money, and a lot of it. They bring home the bacon, the big bucks, the Benjamins. They get paid. As such, most players — unless they’re former NBA MEGA-star and greatest-of-all-time candidate Antoine Walker — have enough coin to snatch up all of the material goods they need and then some. That…

  21. Stevenson wanted to order a 'Code Red'

    Mar 5, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    Jason Terry will miss time due to a broken orbital bone, and it was all thanks to the powerful elbow of one Corey Brewer. But Terry’s teammate DeShawn Stevenson has a bigger lament than JET’s missed court time. From Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News:  “The only thing I’d like for us is to…

  22. Exploring the Nuggets' need for another big man

    Mar 5, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    There isn’t a roster in the league that you could look up and down and say “Ehh, they couldn’t use another big man.” That’s the very reason that the Big Z-Cleveland release-and-catch is so offensive to so many teams; the move doesn’t seem like it should be legal, sure, but those who have been the…

  23. Stoudemire isn't really looking for a long-term relationship right now, y'know?

    Mar 5, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Look, maybe if Amar’e Stoudemire was another All-Star power forward with another set of circumstances, things would be different. But this is who he is right now and this is what he’s going through, and with free agency just on the horizon, Stoudemire isn’t looking for anything serious from the Suns. Commitment weirds him out…

  24. Iverson's wife files for divorce

    Mar 4, 2010, 1:08 PM EDT

    Just days after separation with the Philadelphia 76ers and a week after stepping away from the NBA to be with his sick daughter, Allen Iverson is lucky enough to have another personal struggle added to an already trying week. Iverson’s wife, Tawanna, has filed for divorce, citing describing her marriage as “irretrievably broken.” The latest…

  25. Bosh to return to action tomorrow

    Mar 4, 2010, 12:34 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh has missed the last six games due to injury. All was good and well during the first two games of that stretch, when the Raptors’ opponents were the Nets and the Wizards. But once met with some solid competition, the outmatched Raps crumbled in the subsequent four games. Toronto’s average margin of defeat…
