    Eventually, Charlotte Bobcats general manager Rich Cho will stop just interviewing guys and actually make a choice for the team’s next coach. But we’re not there yet. As had previously been reported would happen, the Bobcats met with Lakers assistant coach Quin Snyder on Monday, reports the Associated Press. The report said they would meet…

  2. Clippers GM change not expected to change Griffin situation

    Jun 5, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Whoever gets brought in to replace Neil Olshey as general manager of the Los Angeles Clippers has one big job — make Chris Paul happy. Paul can leave as a free agent next summer and the GM has to keep him happy and get him to commit to LA. That means get him players to…

  3. Woodson says Lin is Knicks starting point guard. For now.

    Jun 5, 2012, 10:09 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin, Mike Woodson

    Coaches or general managers talking about their team’s roster right now should come with an asterisk. Rosters are going to undergo shifts this summer, from minor to major, and what is true today could be wrong by July 15. So put an asterisk on what Knicks coach Mike Woodson is saying about Jeremy Lin right…

  4. It wasn’t about money, GM Olshey chose Portland over L.A.

    Jun 5, 2012, 8:46 AM EDT

    Neil Olshey

    When the Clippers — with general manager Neil Olshey at the helm —acquired Chris Paul, I kept saying that the only thing that could really screw them up now was owner Donald Sterling. With the excitement and winning on the court, we tend to think the Clippers as an organization have changed — they are…

  5. Video: James Harden and the step-back three dagger

    Jun 5, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs - Game Five

    Down the stretch, when San Antonio kept making the runs of a champion that will not surrender, James Harden kept sticking them with daggers. I though it was over when he hit the and-1 three about a minute before this, but the shot above was the clincher. Listen to the crowd when that shot goes…

  6. Kevin Durant has his Thunder one win from the Finals

    Jun 5, 2012, 1:26 AM EDT

    durant-game-5-spurs

    In the press conference following the Thunder’s huge Game 5 win over the Spurs in San Antonio, one that now has Oklahoma City just a single home victory away from advancing to the NBA Finals, Kevin Durant was asked a question that seemed silly on the surface. It referenced the fact that teams seemingly needed…

  7. Thunder-Spurs Game 5: Oklahoma City won like battle-tested veterans

    Jun 5, 2012, 12:41 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, James Harden

    The conventional wisdom coming into this series was that the younger, less experienced Thunder might well not stand up to the level of play the battle tested Spurs were at. But the Thunder have plenty of experience, too. We thought all season they were the team to beat in the West, that didn’t change until…

  8. Video: Russell Westbrook’s rim-rattling alley-oop finish

    Jun 5, 2012, 12:21 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook

    Russell Westbrook knows how to finish. Monday night, so did the Oklahoma City Thunder. San Antonio came out to start the second half Monday night on a tear, playing like they were fighting for their playoff lives. Which they essentially were. The Thunder withstood the storm and made their own comeback to take the lead…

  9. Lakers pick up option on Bynum. Now things get interesting.

    Jun 4, 2012, 11:04 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    There was never a question whether or not the Lakers would pick up their $16.1 million option on Andrew Bynum. He was a lock to stay. The question has always been what is next? The Lakers made it official Monday that they picked up Bynum’s option for next season. It’s not the smart move, it…

  10. Sudden reversal: GM Olshey leaving Clippers for Trail Blazers

    Jun 4, 2012, 9:13 PM EDT

    Neil Olshey

    This was a fast 360. First rumors circulated that Clippers general manager Neil Olshey had met with Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen about that franchise’s open general manager’s position. The Clippers responded by talking to Olshey and announcing last week they had reached a “deal in principle” with him to stay in Los Angeles. But…

  11. Anthony Davis “long shot” to make U.S. Olympic Team

    Jun 4, 2012, 7:53 PM EDT

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    Anthony Davis got the Golden Ticket, the invite to the ball — he got an invite to the USA Basketball Training Camp. He got in the door due to injuries — Dwight Howard is out, LaMarcus Aldridge may well be out and Team USA could use some size to deal with the Spanish front line.…

  12. Report: Walsh out of running, Magic GM search down to five

    Jun 4, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    There have been rumors the Magic are very close to naming a new general manager. If that is true, it will not be former Knicks and Pacers GM Donnie Walsh taking the helm. That according to David Aldridge at NBA.com (in his must-read Monday column). Walsh pulled himself out of the running, and is not going…

  13. Rivers says if Chris Bosh is back Miami’s offense improves

    Jun 4, 2012, 5:52 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    Miami may have Chris Bosh back on Tuesday for Game 5. It’s huge in a series where the Heat offense has struggled against a good Boston defense, because the Heat’s pick-and-roll is about to become a lot more dangerous. Right now the Heat have shown limited respect for the damage Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem…

  14. Report: Dallas may make futile run to get Roy Hibbert

    Jun 4, 2012, 4:44 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Dallas has apparently learned a valuable lesson — having a big shot-blocking center in the paint is very important if you are into the whole “winning a title” thing. They missed Tyson Chandler, so they may make a run at Pacers center free agent Roy Hibbert. Even though they will not get him. This from…

  15. Names for pre-draft Adidas EuroCamp announced

    Jun 4, 2012, 4:05 PM EDT

    adidas Eurocamp 2012 Logo - Vertical

    While the 2012 NBA draft may be one of the deepest on record, it is not as deep in European talent as has been there in recent years. But there is still some real talent there. France’s two guard Evan Fournier is likely a pick in the last third of the first round. There are…

  16. Video: John Wall finishes off alley-oop from Chris Brown

    Jun 4, 2012, 3:07 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    This is John Wall in his natural habitat, looking like a stud in a summer exhibition game. And that is Chris Brown — as in rapper/dancer/actor/dating hotter women than you C breezy — pushing the ball on the break and lobbing the pass. This is from the Drew League in LA, which opened up recently.…

  17. Thunder-Spurs Game 5: San Antonio needs to find its offense

    Jun 4, 2012, 2:27 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Four

    San Antonio needs to find its offense to win Game 5 tonight, or this series will be over in a couple days. It falls to the Spurs’ big three — Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili need to get free and penetrate the lane to break down the Thunder defense, Tim Duncan just has to play…

  18. Video: Dirk Nowtizki plays tambourine with Avett Brothers

    Jun 4, 2012, 1:22 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (41) reacts after hitting a three point shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz  in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Last summer after winning a title, Dirk Nowitzki celebrated his way across America and Germany. This summer after the Mavericks were knocked out in the first round he is… Showing up on stage with the indie favorites the Avett Brothers at their show last weekend in Grand Prairie, Texas. I have not consulted the Guinness Book…

  19. What was with Miami’s final play? A Wade isolation three? Ugh.

    Jun 4, 2012, 12:38 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    Dwyane Wade is shooting 29.2 percent from three in the playoffs. Which is better than he shot during the regular season. It is not what he does well. So the fact Miami’s final play of overtime devolved into a Wade pull-up three to win it was poor. Bad design, not great execution, just not putting…

  20. It’s official, Randy Wittman to be retained as Wizards coach

    Jun 4, 2012, 11:41 AM EDT

    Randy Wittman

    We’ve known this is coming for days now, but Washington is about to make official they are making the safe play. Monday afternoon the Washington Wizards will host a press conference to announce Randy Wittman will have the interim tag removed as coach and he will return with a two-year deal. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…
