    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…

  5. 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…

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    Larry Hughes has a passion for organ donors and organ transplants.

  7. 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…

    David Robinson Spurs

    On Memorial Day, a day set aside for remembering the sacrifices people have made for our freedom and the chance to do things like watch NBA games, it seemed fitting to look back at NBA players who served in the military. Because the NBA was formed after World War II, the NBA does not have…

  10. Rick Adelman wouldn’t mind being Trail Blazers GM

    May 30, 2011, 11:06 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Apparently, Rick Adelman has no interest in long-term job security. We told you before that long time coach Rick Adelman has interest in moving into a front office job. On Sunday he expressed interest specifically in doing that for Portland, a team that has fired two respected general managers in 10 months. That is what…

  11. Report: Knicks, Donnie Walsh to finally get deal done

    May 30, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    Remember all the drama about whether Donnie Walsh was going to have the extension on his contract picked up or be let go by the Knicks? Then it turned out he didn’t have the extension picked up because they planned to give him a new deal instead? Except, he’s been on the job without a…

    The coming out of Suns CEO Rick Welts as a gay an — and the simple acceptance of that around the league — has led to the next question: What would happen if an active player came out as gay? Steve Nash doesn’t think it would be as big a deal inside the locker room…

    May 29, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Nene

    The Denver Nuggets have a lot of offseason work to do.

Top of that list,…

  16. Jason Kidd has no intention of hanging up the sneakers any time soon

    May 29, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    First off, does anyone still say sneakers? “Shoes” is too generic, “kicks” makes it sound like I’m trying to bring the 2000’s back into prominence (watch me as I blast Hoobastank’s second album), sneaks is just obnoxious, j’s makes me think of jumpers, and Jordans is assuming that Jason Kidd wears Nike, which he does…
