  1. Report: Russia’s CSKA Moscow interested in Krstic

    KRSTIC_NENAD

    There’s a lot of talk from NBA players about going to play in Europe if there is an extended lockout, although most of it is fantasy not reality. Do you think a quality European club is going to sign an NBA player for half a season? But free agents, that may be a different story.…

  2. Kareem writes open letter to Pippen about LeBron, Jordan

    May 31, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    Everyone has climbed all over Scottie Pippen in recent days for putting LeBron James on the same pedestal with Michael Jordan, calling Jordan the best scorer of all time but LeBron a potentially better all around player. At best it felt a little premature. In Chicago that was blasphemy. Now Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has entered the…

  3. Referees announced for Game 1 of NBA finals

    May 31, 2011, 1:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Dallas Mavericks

    Your crew of referees for Game 1 of the NBA finals has been announced: Steve Javie, Mike Callahan and Bill Kennedy. Bill Spooner is the alternate. That’s a solid crew, one that should by reputation be pretty even handed. It also lacks the name that will turn the stomach of Mavs fans — Bennett Salvatore.…

  4. NBA finals Game 1 preview: It’s more than LeBron and Dirk

    May 31, 2011, 12:53 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    It’s one thing to watch the tape and read the report. Dallas knows it has to turn Dwyane Wade and LeBron James into contested jump shooters, not let them drive or get going in transition. Miami knows it needs to front Dirk Nowitzki, force him to put the ball on the floor going right and…

  5. Are the Mavericks the real villains in the NBA?

    May 31, 2011, 12:24 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Hating the Heat is very trendy now. LeBron James going to Miami touched a nerve with fans and that has turned whomever they are playing into America’s team. Miami’s collection of talent just seems unfair to some, and players deciding to play together seems like cheating to them. The Heat are being blamed for ruining…

  6. Report: Howard, Magic talking two-year extension

    May 31, 2011, 11:41 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Dwight Howard keeps talking about how he wants to win in Orlando, how people shouldn’t be talking about him moving on. But the only way silence the rumors is to sign an extension. Howard and the Magic are talking about a two-year extension and it only awaits his signature, according to Orlando’s Local 6 Sports…

  7. Dirk Nowitzki’s workouts unconventional to say the least

    May 31, 2011, 11:13 AM EDT

    Mavericks' Nowitzki looks on during practice as they prepare for the NBA basketball finals in Miami

    Dirk Nowitzki hits everything. In the playoffs, every time a shot leaves his hand you think it is going in, no matter how awkward his body position looks. And it feels different than other players who do the same thing. You see Kobe Bryant hit a leaning one-legged three pointer and you think “he probably…

    T-Mobile Magenta Carpet At The NBA All-Star Game - Arrivals

    If you are looking for some over-the-top, ridiculous hatred of the Heat, start with this link. Having an age limit has not reduced the number of draft busts. Moving the age limit to 20 won’t help either. And it’s just plain wrong. A look at where things stand one month from the start of the lockout.…

  9. Thunder want Kendrick Perkins to get healthy this summer

    May 31, 2011, 10:06 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Four

    Some people in Oklahoma City blamed Kendrick Perkins for the fall of the Thunder in the conference finals to Dallas. Those people are wrong. Perkins was not causing Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant to miss shots at the end of games. Jeff Green would not have saved them (people continue to overvalue him). Perkins was…

  10. PBT’s plethora of Heat vs. Mavs previews — plus a live chat

And there is more to come — including a live chat tonight during Game 1 (starting about 9 pm Eastern). Come on back by PBT tonight at chat during the game, starting…

  11. Jazz coach Corbin says blame AAU for the Miami Heat

    May 31, 2011, 8:54 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    You heard it right after LeBron James talked about where his talents were going — other older players jumped up and said they would not have done this. They would not have willingly joined forces with other superstars to chase rings. Former NBA player and current Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin gets that. He told the…

  12. Dwight Howard tells Orlando fans he’s not Shaq

    May 31, 2011, 8:37 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Dwight Howard may have gotten mad at the Orlando Sentinel for it, but the speculation is everywhere — talk about where Howard will play next is rampant. He can opt out of his current deal in the summer of 2012 and that means if he wants he can put the Orlando Magic in the same…

  13. The Miami Heat’s season in controversy

    May 30, 2011, 8:45 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Celebration

    Ever since “The Decision,” the Miami Heat have been a lightning rod for controversy, and every PR misstep the Heat have made has been turned into a full-blown news item. Some of the controversies were legitimate, and some of them were just silly, but they were all a part of the NBA season. The Palm…

    Glen “Big Baby” Davis, welcome to the world of blogging. We welcome you with open arms even if we are fairly sure you are not in your underwear in your mother’s basement. (And if you are, well, we don’t really want to picture that.) Davis has started blogging about his offseason workout regimen at his…

  15. Nazr Mohammed hopes to return to Oklahoma City

    May 30, 2011, 6:08 PM EDT

    Nazr Mohammed

    Earlier today, free agent center Nazr Mohammed tweeted that he hopes to remain a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder next season. The 33-year old center was traded from the Bobcats to the Thunder in February. Mohammad has been something of a journeyman in his NBA career, having played for the 76ers, Hawks, Knicks, Spurs…

    What’s going to help you get through the end of Memorial Day weekend? Dunks. Big dunks in big games. With that in mind we present for your entertainment the best dunks of the NBA conference finals. Dunks that changed games or just rocked rims. Something to look forward to with the NBA finals starting Tuesday…

  17. Dwyane Wade practices, says he is not hurt

    May 30, 2011, 4:37 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    Dwyane Wade has sounded more like a guy getting ready for the NHL Stanley Cup finals rather than the NBA finals — he refuses to discuss an injury. He’s had a heat pack on his shoulder. He’s had a guy stretching it out during games. His numbers were way down against the Bulls. But ask…

  18. Larry Hughes giving away free gas

    May 30, 2011, 3:47 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    Larry Hughes has a passion for organ donors and organ transplants. His younger brother Justin got to live nine years longer thanks to one and the Larry Hughes Foundation works to promote organ donation and works with the families of recipients and donors. And, the foundation gives away gas. At least it did Sunday, according…

  19. Mavericks not superstitious, stay in same hotel as 2006

    May 30, 2011, 1:20 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    NBA players — and entire franchises — can be very superstitious. Very. But not the Dallas Mavericks. After what happened last time they played Miami in the NBA finals — winning the first two games then dropping the next four when Dwyane Wade took over — the Mavericks would change things up. But no, they…

    mark_jackson_250_080306

    Would you hire a man who says “Mamma, there goes that man” as your head coach? A guy who says “give me better offense any day” every game? The Golden State Warriors are apparently considering it. Former player and current ESPN/ABC analyst Mark Jackson is a finalist for the Warriors head coaching job, according to…
