    KBogans

    Keith Bogans had minor knee surgery, but that’s really the least of his questions this offseason. Bogans, the Bulls starting two guard for all 82 games, had arthroscopic surgery to clean out his knee, according to the Chicago Tribune. Nothing major, this was just the kind of thing that virtually every veteran NBA player has…

    Jun 1, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    12

    There are a lot of Europeans near the top of this year’s draft. NBA teams are interested in part due to the looming lockout — draft a big man project and he can play overseas through a lockout, develop some more then bring him over in a year. Meet Jan Vesely, who falls into that…

  5. Video: Shaq’s one three-pointer

    Orlando Shaq

    As Dave McMenamin pointed out earlier today, the newly retired Shaquille O’Neal made all of one three in his 19-year career. Darius Soriano was able to track down the video, and here it is in all of its glory: Shaq, playing for the Magic, banking in a desperation 35-footer as the quarter was ending. As…

  8. Raptors let go of coach Jay Triano

    Jun 1, 2011, 6:05 PM EDT

    Jay Triano

    You can question if he got as many wins as one could out of the talent given him (which wasn’t much). You can’t question that the Raptors have been an abject disaster defensively for two years running. That has led to Toronto not picking up the option on coach Jay Triano’s contract for next season.…

  9. Shaq retires and will be missed

    Jun 1, 2011, 5:07 PM EDT

    O'NEAL

    I’m going to miss having Shaquille O’Neal around the NBA. It’s the end of an era — Kyrie Irving, the top pick in this coming draft, was born the year Shaq entered the league. But it feels like more than that. I’ll miss him in part because he was a reminder that this is a…

    Daniel Gibson

    After the Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference Finals, LeBron said that “I wanted to team up with some guys that would never die down in the moment.

  13. Kyrie Irving may work out only for Cavaliers

    Jun 1, 2011, 3:31 PM EDT

    kyrie-irving

    As we said before, outside of failing his physical or showing up to his team interview with Cleveland wearing an “I love the Taliban” T-shirt, Kyrie Irving is going to be selected No. 1 overall by the Cavaliers come June 23. So why work out for anyone else? He may not, his agent implied to…

    Jun 1, 2011, 2:12 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    It’s a glass half full or half empty kind of thing. The facts are that Game 1 of the NBA finals Tuesday — Miami’s 92-84 win over Dallas — drew a 10.7 rating nationally, the highest rating for a Game 1 since the 2004 NBA finals (the Pistons vs. the Lakers of Shaq, Kobe, Karl…

    New York Knicks v Golden State Warriors

    Let’s just start this out with the needed disclaimer — this all starts because of speculation from a newspaper columnist, an idea that got picked up and ran with all over the Web Wednesday morning. (Tell me again how bloggers start all the rumors?) Understand it all started with a guess that may be off…

    Ron Artest

    Ron Artest is really trying to live up to that citizenship award he got. Artest was leaving a Hollywood club last weekend when he came upon a man and a woman about to get into a fight, according to TMZ.com. So Artest stepped in and broke it up. Because 6’7” 265 pound guys with minimal…

  17. Miami shredded the Dallas zone in Game 1

    Jun 1, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Dallas has counted on its zone defense as more than just a change of pace. In a series where Tyson Chandler might have to chase Chris Bosh out on the perimeter, the zone could be a way to keep Chandler in the paint protecting the rim. But in Game 1, the Heat just shredded it.…

    Wednesday, representatives of the NBA owners and the Players Association will sit down in a room together and talk about a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
