  1. Rick Carlisle confronted DeShawn Stevenson about Facebooking. Too bad DeShawn doesn’t have Facebook.

    DeShawn Neck Tattoo

    Rick Carlisle heard some disturbing rumors about DeShawn Stevenson running his mouth on Facebook, calling out Lebron James. Makes sense, Stevenson has a long-standing history with James and has said his fair share of comments during these Finals, including saying James “checked out” of Game 4. So the coach confronted Stevenson. One problem. Stevenson isn’t…

  2. Video: Heat, Mavericks talk about Game 6

    Jun 11, 2011, 8:12 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    This is “now or never” LeBron. A real now or never. Dallas enters Game 6 with a chance to end the series, while the Heat look to force a Game 7. Below is a video of guys from both teams looking ahead to Game 6. But wait, there’s more! For that same fantastic low price,…

  3. NBA finals: Miami will execute at the end of Game 6 or the season ends

    One stat sums up why we are one more Mavericks win away from seeing David Stern hand the Larry O’Brien trophy over to Mark Cuban: In the final six minutes of Games 2 through 5, Dallas has outscored Miami 60-26. These have been incredibly close games, but with everything on the line Dallas and its veteran lineup…

  4. The flaw in the idea of embracing the ‘competitive market’ in the NBA

    2010 NBA Draft

    ESPN.com reports what has been rumored for ages, that part of the union’s proposals to the league in the current CBA negotiations includes a provision to provide struggling teams with more draft picks. The idea is that the worst teams would receive more picks in the first round while some of the better teams would…

  5. Dirk Nowitzki says LeBron and Wade were “childish, ignorant” when mocking his illness

    Jun 11, 2011, 4:01 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Dirk Nowitzki of Germany, who has flu, wipes his nose during an interview for the NBA Finals basketball series against the Miami Heat in Dallas

    Big news, people. I’m not talking about the potentially impending doom facing the Miami Heat on Sunday, when they could very well lose their fourth game in six tries against the Dallas Mavericks in these Finals, and the NBA title right along with it. No, this is far bigger of a story apparently, considering it’s…

  6. LeBron James is a little unsure of whether the pressure is getting to him

    Jun 11, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Let’s get right down to it, shall we? The Miami Herald asked LeBron James if the pressure was “getting to him” whatever that means. His answer was clear, decisive, forceful. And by that I mean it was none of those things: “No, I don’t think so,” James said. Self-correction. “I don’t believe so,” James said. One…

  7. Knicks’ shooting guard options could make for their own reality show

    Jun 11, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    One consequence of the super-teams is that you’re always going to be shopping for second-rate players to “fill in the blanks” as Donnie Walsh put it on his conference call when he stepped down. You’re simply never going to have a great amount of options because of how tight your cap is. That can only…

  8. Character matters, but let’s not go too far, draft personnel.

    Jun 11, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Brandon Knight Kentucky

    Look, I’m no friend to the college game. 30% shooting, sloppy ball-handling, perimeter-pass-perimeter-pass-perimeter-pass-contested-jumper ball is not my forte (even if that sounds a lot like the Finals… zing!). I think that just because you look like a great player in college means squat at the next level. The NBA is simply that much more competitive,…

  9. Mike Dunleavy Sr. awarded $13 million in arbitration hearing

    Jun 10, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Mike Dunleavy

    Well, it looks like at least one of notoriously cheap Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s cost-cutting measures has failed. Courtesy of the Los Angeles Times’ Lisa Dillman, here’s the story: An arbitrator has awarded former Clippers general manager and coach Mike Dunleavy slightly more than $13 million in compensation. The Clippers had quit paying Dunleavy immediately…

  10. Video: Jimmy Kimmel pranks Ron Artest

    Ron Artest Parade

    Jimmy Kimmel has been a consistent source of NBA-related entertainment throughout the playoffs. Ron Artest is a consistent source of entertainment all the time. When Artest guested on Kimmel’s show, you knew something good was going to happen. Kimmel took advantage of Artest’s well-documented humanitarian streak and had him film a PSA for a fake…

  11. Nate Robinson arrested for public urination

    Nate Robinson

    Nate Robinson of the Oklahoma City was recently arrested for doing something he should have done somewhere else, namely a toilet. Lohud.com has the report: WHITE PLAINS — NBA point guard Nate Robinson made quite a splash on Main Street early Friday when police said he was spotted urinating on the sidewalk outside the City…

  12. Is Brandon Knight sliding down everyone’s draft board?

    Jun 10, 2011, 5:14 PM EDT

    Brandon Knight Kentucky

    This year’s NBA draft gets interesting at No. 3. Because Cleveland will take Kyrie Irving No. 1 overall and Minnesota — or somebody, your trade window is wide open — will take Derrick Williams No. 2. But No. 3? The consensus is that the Jazz would take Kentucky point guard Brandon Knight third. They need…

  13. Mark Cuban was right, depth mattered plenty

    Jun 10, 2011, 2:48 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is shown on the court before the start of play between the Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Dallas

    Time for some crow. I prefer mine braised with a nice port wine reduction, but nonetheless it is time to eat some. Back before the start of the season, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was talking about his team’s depth and how that was going to make things different this year. This is a really, really…

  14. Report: Monta Ellis no fan of David Lee

    Jun 10, 2011, 2:26 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    There are a few good reasons the Warriors want to move Monta Ellis — the Stephen Curry and Ellis back court has run its course, they need to get bigger and more defensive and Ellis is good trade bait, and… Maybe Ellis and David Lee do not get along. Lee is reportedly tight with owner…

  15. Stan Van Gundy wonders if Pippen was actually great

    Jun 10, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Chicago Bulls

    Scottie Pippen is one of the NBA’s official 50 Greatest Players of All Time. He is a Hall of Famer. He has six rings. But is he overrated? There are a lot of people who think he is, and Pippen has always chaffed at that idea, that he was Robin to Jordan’s Batman. You can…

  16. Leandro Barbosa considering leaving NBA for Brazil

    Jun 10, 2011, 12:37 PM EDT

    Leandro Barbosa, Tyrus Thomas

    For all his speed and promise, Leandro Barbosa has never been able to find comfortable footing in the NBA. And now the current Raptor is thinking about leaving the NBA behind and returning to play in his native Brazil, where he is a legend. Barbosa has a $7.6 million player option for next season with…

  17. Video: LeBron, Wade mock sick Dirk… it’s not a big deal

    Jun 10, 2011, 12:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The NBA world is watching and talking about this video today, in the brilliant words of SBN’s Tom Ziller it is blowing up like a meth lab. So we bring it to you. This news broadcast below — taken BEFORE Game 5 — has video of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade walking out of the…

  18. History says Miami has a real chance to win this

    Jun 10, 2011, 11:27 AM EDT

    Lebron James (6) of the Miami Heat makes

    The odds favor the Dallas Mavericks — up 3-2 they need to win just one of the final two games in Miami to win the first title in the franchise’s history. Plus, the way they have been executing at the end of games, they must be considered the favorites. But history says Miami has a…

  19. LeBron James was good, but we expect more of him

    Jun 10, 2011, 10:49 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The Miami Heat did not lose Thursday night because of LeBron James. But they didn’t win because of him either. That is ultimately the challenge that lies before him — he cannot be merely good, not if he is to meet the expectations put upon him,  ones he encouraged and welcomed — he needs to be…

  20. Add Kelvin Sampson to list of frontrunners for Pistons job

    Jun 10, 2011, 10:10 AM EDT

    Chicago State v Indiana

    If you are a betting man, Mike Woodson remains the smart place to put your money on becoming the next head coach of the Detroit Pistons. (Although, if you are actually betting on who will be the next coach of the Pistons, it may be time to seek some help.) But now another name has…
