    Kobe Shaquille O'Neal Lakers

    Sometimes lost in all the clowning, all the injuries of the last few years, people seemed to have forgotten what an unstoppable force of nature Shaquille O’Neal was on the court in his prime. A lot of that prime was in Los Angeles, paired with Kobe Bryant. They could not have won those titles without…

    Mike D'Antoni

    Almost as soon as news got out yesterday evening that the Toronto Raptors had let go of Jay Triano as coach, the rumors started in New York. Particularly from the anti Mike D’Antoni factions. Maybe the Raptors would come after him and steal him. After all, Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo was the Suns GM when…

    Keith Bogans had minor knee surgery, but that’s really the least of his questions this offseason. Bogans, the Bulls starting two guard for all 82 games, had arthroscopic surgery to clean out his knee, according to the Chicago Tribune. Nothing major, this was just the kind of thing that virtually every veteran NBA player has…

    There are a lot of Europeans near the top of this year’s draft. NBA teams are interested in part due to the looming lockout — draft a big man project and he can play overseas through a lockout, develop some more then bring him over in a year. Meet Jan Vesely, who falls into that…

  15. Raptors let go of coach Jay Triano

    Jun 1, 2011, 6:05 PM EDT

    Jay Triano

    You can question if he got as many wins as one could out of the talent given him (which wasn’t much). You can’t question that the Raptors have been an abject disaster defensively for two years running. That has led to Toronto not picking up the option on coach Jay Triano’s contract for next season.…

  16. Shaq retires and will be missed

    O'NEAL

    I’m going to miss having Shaquille O’Neal around the NBA. It’s the end of an era — Kyrie Irving, the top pick in this coming draft, was born the year Shaq entered the league. But it feels like more than that. I’ll miss him in part because he was a reminder that this is a…

    As we said before, outside of failing his physical or showing up to his team interview with Cleveland wearing an “I love the Taliban” T-shirt, Kyrie Irving is going to be selected No. 1 overall by the Cavaliers come June 23. So why work out for anyone else? He may not, his agent implied to…
