    Chuck Person

    ESPN Los Angeles’ Dave McMenamin has the report: LOS ANGELES — After meeting with new Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike Brown on consecutive days late last week to interview for an assistant coach position, Chuck Person is keeping his options open. Person traveled to Houston on Sunday and will interview with the Rockets for a position on new…

    Sixers Happy Family Time

    Jimmy Kimmel has been a constant source of NBA-related entertainment this post-season, and the fun continued on his show last night. Kimmel invited LaMarcus Aldridge and Greg Oden of the Portland Trail Blazers and Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala on his show to play the “Team-Mating Game,” an NBA version of “The Newlywed Game” (or,…

  3. Don’t be surprised if Knicks stay in house for new GM

    Isiah Thomas will not be the next president and general manager of the New York Knicks. That is very different than saying he will not have influence, but he will not have the job and the title and the desk. Just ask him. Who will? Probably a few of the guys already in the building…

    It’s very early in the process of finding a new coach for the Detroit Pistons and although you know Joe Dumars has been thinking about this for a ling while there are a lot of twists and turn the road could still take. But the first names out of the shoot will not thrill Pistons…

  5. Mavs Brendan Haywood questionable for Game 4

    Jun 6, 2011, 2:58 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Dallas missed Brendan Haywood in Game 3, as he sat out with a hip injury. When Tyson Chandler got some rest, Ian Mahinmi came in and picked up two points, one rebound and five fouls in eight minutes and was a -6. And that line makes it sound better than it looked. It leads to…

  6. Report: Mark Jackson is the frontrunner for Golden State

    People who have met with new Warriors owner Joe Lacob have described him as an out of the box thinker. Which is pretty much a cliché statement in and of itself at this point, but we’ll go with it. Because it sounds like he is close to doing something very out of the box, according…

  7. LeBron, Wade able to share “alpha dog” role just fine

    Jun 6, 2011, 1:38 PM EDT

    Heat's James congratulates Wade after scoring against the Mavericks during fourth quarter in Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Miami

    Because some people just need to criticize LeBron James no matter what he does, there were ridiculous columns out about LeBron James shrinking from the spotlight after the Heat won Game 3. Questions LeBron just shot down in his press conference. But, this situation in Miami is different than what we saw with the Lakers…

  8. Report: If Wolves draft Williams No. 2, Beasley moves to trade block

    Jun 6, 2011, 12:26 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    It is known around the league that Minnesota will trade you the No. 2 overall pick if you are willing to send them a veteran big man in return. Problem is, in this draft nobody really wants to give up a decent veteran big man for what they can get at No. 2. If things…

  9. Baron Davis helping set up lockout workouts for Cavs

    Jun 6, 2011, 12:02 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Baron Davis, team leader? Some people in Clippersville are shaking their heads (with reason, he did not do this stuff in Los Angeles) but Davis is looking like a good, veteran leader in Cleveland. For example, come the July 1 lockout (and there will be one, the only question is for how long) teams will…

  10. Mario Chalmers dramatic shot shouldn’t have counted. Maybe.

    Jun 6, 2011, 11:23 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    UPDATE 11:23 am: Or, maybe we have it wrong and the shot should have counted. According to Refcalls.com, it’s an unclear area of the rulebook, however the way they read it because Chalmers leapt in the air to get the pass then landed in the front court he was neither in the front or back…

    Dallas Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki (C) drives through Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem (L) and Chris Bosh (R) during Game 3 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Dallas

    At the end of Game 2 it was Chris Bosh on Dirk Nowitzki, at the end of Game 3 it was Udonis Haslem. The different outcomes are not all that simple, but it’s a big difference to start with. Good on Ekpe Udoh, who has returned to Oklahoma to work with victims of recent tornadoes.…

  12. Ron Artest taking mental health push to new reality show

    Jun 6, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    If we just told you Ron Artest was going to have a reality show, you’d just nod. He’s the kind of offbeat personality that works for those shows. Except, this isn’t “Khloe & Lamar Part II,” Artest’s new reality show that is in the works is not about him at all, according to TMZ.com. Artest…

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    Miami has gotten in trouble this series when they have gone to LeBron James or Dwyane Wade in isolation. When it became hero ball as they tried to knock down the long jumper or drove headlong into the teeth of the defense. And in the biggest moment of the series you wondered if they may…

  14. Dirk needs help if Dallas is going to get a ring

    Jun 6, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks go

    Going into this series Dallas’ bench was going to be a huge factor. Well, they have been, just not in the way anybody was picturing. While single game +/- stats (how a team scores with a player on the court) can be misleading, we have an unmistakable trend broken out by Jeff Fogel at HoopData.…

  15. NBA Finals: Miami endures, wins Game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead over Dallas

    Jun 6, 2011, 1:23 AM EDT

    Screen shot 2011-06-06 at 12.07.46 AM

    Game 3 of the 2011 NBA Finals was a 48-minute spectacular. It was a heartbreaker and a series changer. It was valiant, defeating, and entertaining, and it was decided by an incredibly slim margin. With a single bucket — a Chris Bosh baseline jumper, to be exact — Miami topped Dallas, 88-86, in a riveting…

  16. Dallas finally runs out of comebacks in Game 3 of the Finals

    Jun 6, 2011, 1:04 AM EDT

    dirk-haslem-game3

    The Mavericks have made a living off of big comebacks to get to this point in the postseason, but at some point, constantly fighting back from behind gets to be too much. That point may have been reached in Game 3 of the Finals on Sunday, when Dallas, for the second consecutive game, erased all…

  17. NBA Playoffs: Miami gets home-court back with erratic performance

    Jun 6, 2011, 12:43 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    For a little while, it looked like the Miami Heat’s 88-86 win over the Dallas Mavericks to give them a 2-1 lead in the series was going to be a repeat of Dallas’ dramatic Game 2 comeback victory. The Heat came out in attack mode and put the Mavericks on their heels early, attacking the…

  18. Mike D’Antoni isn’t concerned about his job security

    Jun 5, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    With Donnie Walsh out in New York, immediately the questions turned towards the future of Mike D’Antoni. Yes, D’Antoni was part of the Knicks’ resurgence. Yes, D’Antoni was instrumental in their playoff run. And yes, he has several years left on his contract. But this is the Knicks we’re talking about and if anything, they’re…

  19. Report: Mavericks will try to bring back Chandler, Barea

    Jun 5, 2011, 5:01 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    There’s been a lot of talk that this run is Dirk Nowitzki’s last chance at a ring, because of his age and the makeup of the team. I’m not buying the age thing — I watched Game 2 of the finals. And the entire playoffs. The guy is averaging 28.1 points per game and shooing…
