    Deron Williams, "Jay-Z" Sean Corey Carter , Beyonce Knowles

    Deron Williams, welcome to the front line of the recruiting wars. If you’re going to win in the NBA, you need a few stars together in one place — and that means you’re going to have to sell. You’re going to have to recruit like Gene Chizik. Especially if you are not Boston/Los Angeles/New York/Miami.…

  2. Video: Derrick Rose turns John Wall around with between legs assist

    Mar 1, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is playing well for a rookie point guard. Derrick Rose is playing well for anyone. Monday night on a fast break Rose turned Wall around with the sick assist between his own legs to Joakim Noah for the dunk. Just teaching the rookie a couple of things (on the Bulls way to a…

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    The Maloof brothers have a little more time to negotiate and think things through. The NBA’s Board of Governors — the owners — has granted the Sacramento Kings an extension until April 18 to file for relocation next season, according to a tweet from CNBC’s Darren Rovell.

    NBA Finals Game 4: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    UPDATE 12:16 pm: We have the financial figures — $34.8 million over four years, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. That works out to an average of $8.7 million a year and is about $12 million more than Boston could offer. Boston was hamstrung with its offer because it is over the salary cap, which…

  5. Call him Dropkick, Troy Murphy is going to Boston

    Mar 1, 2011, 12:10 PM EDT

    Troy Murphy

    And his new nickname will be “Dropkick.” Troy Murphy is going to go to Boston, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Marc Stein, who spoke with Murphy. A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England confirms Murphy is Boston bound as well. So the Notre Dame graduate Irish kid chose Boston. Suppose we should have seen…

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    The final Works column at FanHouse. I am really going to miss Shoals and Freeman (and Ziller) doing this every day. Former Celtic Al Jefferson is as perplexed by the Kendrick Perkins trade as the rest of us are. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau calls Luol Deng his “glue guy.” (Also, he seems pretty shocked by…

    Just 24 hours ago Boston felt pretty good about getting some more help along their front line in the form of Troy Murphy, the veteran stretch four bought out by the Warriors. Then Pat Riley and the Heat got involved. Things are up in the air with a decision expected Tuesday, according to CSN New…

    Channing Frye Steve Nash

    Two nights in a row Channing Frye gets free and knocks down the game-winning three for the Suns, this time in overtime in New Jersey. Kris Humphries makes the defensive mistake of going for the pass not staying with Frye (his man), and because of that he gets hung up on Marcin Gortat’s massive screen.…

    There are not many things we can say for sure about the new Collective Bargaining Agreement that the players and owners are hammering out. Or will hammer out, right now they are just posturing. No actual work has taken place. But we know two things are pretty much certain. The owners will want less money…

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Denver pushed hard to make sure they got Danilo Gallinari as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal, but they’re not going to get much out of him for a week or so. Gallinari sat out Monday night’s Nuggets win against the Hawks and will miss the next week to 10 days because of a broken…

    Knicks fans should robbed. Kelenna Azubuike was potentially a great fit in Mike D’Antoni’s system. But the torn patellar tendon that robbed him of most of last season with the Warriors (he came east in the David Lee trade) has kept him off the court this entire season. Monday night the Knicks bought out his…

  16. If Mike Bibby or Troy Murphy is in, who is out in Miami?

    Feb 28, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    Lots of talk about the Miami Heat picking up another aging veteran on a minimum salary. Because they don’t have enough of those. But Troy Murphy and Mike Bibby are out on the markets due to buyouts and both are looking at the Heat as an option. Most likely it appears Bibby is South Beach…

    During All-Star weekend, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich kept saying he was waiting for the other shoe to drop. His core players — Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Richard Jefferson and DeJuan Blair — had not missed a game all season. Popovich knew he’d been lucky. Up until now. Tony Parker will be out two…

    How bad are things in Detroit? Follow this link to the video of coach John Kuester getting ejected Friday night.

  20. Clippers to celebrate Black History Month. In the wrong month.

    Feb 28, 2011, 2:58 PM EDT

    Clippers Black History Month

    There is a newfound hope in Clippers Nation. Blake Griffin’s skill and motor have changed the culture of that team. Eric Gordon can ball and is a perfect complement. There is a young core, draft picks coming (two first rounders in 2012) and a manageable cap right now. And yet, they are the Clippers. Doing…
