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

    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…

  2. Pistons fire coach John Kuester. Finally.

    IL: Detroit Pistons v Chicago Bulls

    The sale of the Detroit Pistons to Tom Gores has finally gone through, and he has taken only a few days to start the process of rebuilding the franchise. That starts by firing coach John Kuester, as reported by a number of sources including ESPN. “Decisions like this are difficult to make,” team president Joe Dumars said. “I…

  3. Chris Bosh returns home to Dallas looking to spoil party

    Jun 5, 2011, 2:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Dallas has already made this series uncomfortable for Chris Bosh. Primarily covered by Tyson Chandler, Bosh has struggled, as Tom Haberstroh detailed at ESPN. This isn’t just a product of missing midrange jumpers. While he’s shot just 3-for-11 this series on long 2s, the real issue is the chip shots around the basket. Inside 10…

    Miami Heat Dwayne Wade goes for a slam a

    The series is tied, and teams are 11-0 when winning the third game of a 2-3-2 series tied 1-1. The Heat have looked unstoppable and then collapsed. The Mavericks have looked overwhelmed and then charged back to victory. Anyone who thought this series was going to be quick or easy has had a lesson in…

  5. Report: Wizards not among “active teams” in pursuit of Derrick Williams

    Jun 5, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    This is probably going to be a trade-heavy draft. The picks don’t have the value to make them invaluable. And with so many teams looking to improve, there’s going to be movement. But as of right now, a report says the Wizards moving up for Derrick Williams is not one of them. From the Washington…

  6. Brad Miller out until January after microfracture surgery

    MILLER_BRAD

    Out of nowhere, Brad Miller showed up at a Sacramento event in support of the fans on crutches. When asked by media about the injury, Miller revealed that he had microfracture surgery. So there’s that. Miller is out until at least January, which is just more bad news for the Rockets. Miller can’t really afford…

  7. Video: Heat, Mavericks Talk About Game 3

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Game 2 ended in as dramatic a fashion as any NBA finals game ever. But can the Mavericks carry that momentum over, or did the Heat just take their foot off the gas? Heat players didn’t talk about the stagnant offense at the end of the game, they talked about being flat on defense. At…

  8. Expect LeBron, Wade, and the rest of the Heat to keep right on “celebrating”

    After the Mavericks made their incredible comeback in Game 2,  erasing all of a 15-point Miami lead with just over seven minutes remaining, there were some in the media who were looking to make something out of nothing. The storyline that was concocted was that the “celebration” that went on in front of the Mavericks’…

  9. Hornets GM denies CP3 trade talk because it never existed

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Here’s an annoying trend. Everyone wants Chris Paul. The Magic, the Lakers, the Knicks, the Thunder, the Wolves, the Harlem Globetrotters, the Saskatchewan River Buffalo, everyone wants Chris Paul. So what happens is every team thinks they could maybe get him since he was unhappy last summer. So they talk about trying to get him,…

    Kurt Rambis may have no idea what is going on with his job, but apparently other people do. He may be staying on board for another year. J. Michael Falgoust of the USA Today tweeted this Friday night. I’m told by a source that #Twolves will bring back #KurtRambis but force him to retool his…

  11. Gilbert Arenas to give away all the shoes he wore while watching Jameer Nelson this year

    Gilbert Arenas, Stan Van Gundy

    Gilbert Arenas is back on Twitter, which is great news for everyone who either a. loves Gil or b. loves making fun of Gil. It’s a win-win, really. Those two groups have a pretty high crossover on the ol’ Ven diagram as well. Not only is Arenas back on Twitter, but he’s giving away shoes!…

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Whoops. That didn’t go how the Heat planned, I’m betting. So Saturday at Heat practice, Erik Spoelstra has to regroup the Heat mentally and emotionally to prepare them for a Game 3 that’s pretty much insanely important. (“OMG NO TEAM HAS EVER WON/LOST THE FINALS AFTER LOSING/WINNING GAME 3 IN A 2-3-2 FORMAT AFTER SPLITTING…

  13. What’s on their mind Saturday: Dallas Mavericks

    Jun 4, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Mavs have done what they set out to do. Well, okay, not really. They probably wanted to win both games in Miami, devastate their spirits ans set up a sweep. Easy is always better in such things. But a more realistic goal was to split the two games in Miami and regain homecourt advantage. Which…

  14. Mavs’ Brendan Haywood questionable for Game 3

    Jun 3, 2011, 9:42 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Mavericks backup center Brendan Haywood is questionable for Game 3 Sunday after injuring his right hip flexor in Game 2. Officially Haywood is day-to-day and Dallas coach Rick Carlisle was playing everything close to the vest as coaches do in the playoffs. ESPNDallas has the quotes. “We’ll know more tomorrow. He was not feeling…

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    It doesn’t work like this. So don’t believe it. But we will first report the official news — Isiah Thomas told ESPN multiple times he does not want to be president of the New York Knicks in the wake of Donnie Walsh being pushed out of the job. “I have no desire to return as…

    You didn’t expect Shaquille O’Neal to totally shut the door, did you? He left it open a crack when talking with our man A. Sherrod Blakely with CSN New England in a one-on-one after his farewell press conference Friday. So Shaq, could you make a comeback? “Probably not,” O’Neal told Comcast SportsNet moments after announcing…

  17. Rambis has no idea what is happening with Wolves either

    Jun 3, 2011, 4:41 PM EDT

    Kurt Rambis

    Kurt Rambis is still the coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. That’s all he knows. Rambis finally broke his media silence following workouts for potential draftees at the Target Center — but that didn’t really clear anything up about who will coach the team next year. Because he’s only had “minor conversations” with sGM David Kahn…

We care about you that way. Shaq was funny and just enjoying the experience, pretty much like he played his career. He…

  19. Donnie Walsh out as Knicks president in shocker

    Donnie Walsh

    UPDATE 4:16 pm: According to Howard Beck at the New York Times, another sticking point of negotiations was Dolan’s insistence that Walsh take a 40 percent paycut, from $5 million down to $3 million. Yes, it’s still a boatload of money, but what if your boss asked you to take a 40 percent paycut? It’s…

    Donnie Walsh, the consummate professional who never speaks ill of ownership in public, said all the right things in his phone conference call Friday about him leaving as president of the Knicks. Well, the right things if you’re Knicks owner James Dolan. Nobody bought a word of it, but Walsh went through the motions, as…
