  1. Three potential NBA Draft busts (but we hope not)

    Jun 25, 2012, 4:24 PM EDT

    West Virginia v Connecticut

    I hate the idea of calling a guy a bust before the draft. You simply can’t say a guy will not pan out before he steps on the court for even a Summer League game. Let alone for an NBA game. Some guys rise to the challenge of stiffer competition. Some guys take a few…

    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    Not that they really need an excuse to party down in South Beach, but they’ve had one for a few days. LeBron James brought his talents there and it resulted in an NBA title. And that means a parade through the streets of the city, as is the tradition. Miami’s parade was today and above…

  3. Five NBA Draft sleepers to watch

    Jun 25, 2012, 3:13 PM EDT

    Iona v Brigham Young

    Admit it, this is one of your favorite parts of the NBA draft — picking out the guy nobody is watching because you think he’s got that special something. You want to find the next Isaiah Thomas. You know he can help your team. And you pull for him because you want to be right,…

  4. Just a reminder, teams can use amnesty for week staring July 11

    Jun 25, 2012, 1:48 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    There are a whole lot of interesting amnesty clause questions out there this season — will the Heat use it on Mike Miller? Will the Lakers use it on Metta World Peace? How quickly will the Suns use it on Josh Childress? Here is a quick reminder of how the Amnesty Clause works. • Teams…

    So you’re in the hotel getting ready for the biggest day of your life — your wedding day — and through the lobby strolls newly crowned NBA champion and MVP LeBron James.

  6. Report: Rockets going hard after Dwight Howard

    Jun 25, 2012, 12:55 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    When it comes time to trade Dwight Howard this summer — and make no mistake, new Magic general manager Rob Hennigan will have to move him because he will not re-sign in Orlando — the Magic are not going to give a crap about Howard’s wishes. Howard may want to land in Brooklyn or some…

According to multiple league sources, there is mutual interest between Allen and the Heat. The most…

  8. Amare Stoudemire apologizes for using gay slur on twitter

    Jun 25, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    I don’t think agents and team officials can remind players of this enough — if you say it on twitter it is like saying it to a reporter. Even if you send a direct message to a fan. Amare Stoudemire forgot this for a second and sent a fan a gay slur on twitter, something…

    Like Chevy Chase leading the Griswolds, Mark Cuban is leading the Dallas Mavericks on a European vacation. Kind of.

On Oct. 5 the Boston Celtics play its first-ever game overseas against five-time…

    Steve Nash, Grant Hill

    The party is still going on in Miami — they will be parading through downtown with the Larry O’Brien trophy on Monday and a whole lot of people are going to be “sick” from work to get down and be part of the festivities. But in the Miami front office, there is no break. They…

  12. Report: Knicks target Ray Allen, Jason Terry, shooters

    Jun 25, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    Apparently, the Knicks want some shooters to put around their roster. And they hope they can convince a good one to come to New York on the cheap. While they wait to see if J.R. Smith stays or if he ops for free agency, they will target shooters in the upcoming free agency period, according…

  13. Draft-day trades are coming, which ones are most likely?

    Jun 25, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    More than any year in recent memory, it feels like we are going to see a lot of trades, a lot of moves in the days, hours and minutes leading up to the draft. While the consensus may be this a deep draft, some teams are willing to move to out while other teams are…

The Atlanta Hawks have…

    Jun 25, 2012, 12:14 AM EDT

    Daryl Morey

    This really shouldn’t really be a surprise — ever since Daryl Morey took over as general manager of the Rockets they have been one of the more active teams on draft day. Right now they pick No. 14 but they want to move up, according to ESPN. Sources say that Houston has discussed deals with…

  16. Thunder GM calls idea of Jackson, Van Gundy as coach “rubbish”

    Jun 24, 2012, 9:49 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Four

    When we told you this rumor was out there — that Phil Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy were on the list as potential coaches of the Thunder if Scott Brooks wasn’t brought back — we told you to take it with a grain of salt. Or, actually an entire box of kosher salt (we only…

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Jun 24, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    Well, Anthony Davis is No.1 and Thomas Robinson will go in the top five. That’s a pretty good start for the bigs in the 2012 NBA draft. After that, things get really interesting. Of the top bigs: Andre Drummond, Jared Sullinger, John Henson, Meyers Leonard, Tyler Zeller, Perry Jones, and if you want to throw…

  19. Report: Tony Parker needed eye surgery, Olympics still likely

    Jun 24, 2012, 3:12 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    This might help you understand why Tony Parker was frustrated enough to file a $20 million lawsuit. He had to have surgery or he could have lost an eye injured as a bystander in a TMZ dream fight in a club in New York, and in a couple weeks he’s flying back to the United…

    Bobcats GM Rich Cho comes at his job differently than the other 29 guys who have these gigs. Cho was an engineer for Boeing who left that to attend Pepperdine law school, then parlayed that into a job with the Sonics. One of his big projects with the Bobcats has been create a comprehensive player…
