  1. The good ol’ days: When John Salley got punched by teammates

    Mar 30, 2011, 5:10 PM EDT

    salley_bad_boys

    Turns out, the old Detroit Bad Boys were pretty bad. John Salley was being interviewed and telling stories over at Pistons.com (via Piston Powered) and he had some great tales. Including the time as a rookie he got punched by his own teammates in practice. “OK, now it’s the next day. Rick Mahorn and Sid…

  2. Elgin Baylor’s lawsuit against Donald Sterling shot down by jury

    Clippers Donald Sterling is still a despicable human being. A man with a laundry list of offenses of offenses from the serious (racial housing discrimination) to just screwing up his NBA team. This has not changed. But he has won key court battle. A jury Wednesday rejected a $2 million lawsuit brought by former Clippers…

  3. Spurs, Celtics slouching towards playoffs; count them out at your own peril

    Mar 30, 2011, 3:38 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    Back at the All-Star break, a Celtics vs. Spurs finals seemed like a good bet. Sure, it made the guys who count the profits at ABC/Disney nervous — you know they want Lakers/Heat, and they really don’t want the Spurs — but the Celtics and Spurs were playing the best basketball by far. That matchup…

  4. Video: Cooking for LeBron, he eats better than you

    Mar 30, 2011, 1:40 PM EDT

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    I love cooking shows. Love. Them. Honestly, when basketball isn’t on my television, it’s a cooking show. Maybe some cool old-school Iron Chef (from Japan, the American version is a poor imitation), maybe just Jamie Oliver cooking at home. I miss the Two Fat Ladies. As cooking videos go, this one is not going to…

  5. Carlos Boozer was Prince’s landlord. This is what it sounds like when Doves cry.

    Mar 30, 2011, 1:09 PM EDT

    Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival 2008 - Day 2

    So just we have the roles understood: Carlos Boozer plays the role of Ralph Furley the cranky landlord, and Prince plays Jack Tripper, the renter who has crazy shenanigans happening around him all the time. And since we’re talking Prince, no doubt there were plenty of rotating women to complete the Three’s Company circle. Turns…

  6. Grant Hill likes Phoenix but keeping his free agent options open

    Mar 30, 2011, 12:06 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Grant Hill is nearing retirement — and if there is one thing you can find plenty of in Phoenix it’s retirees. Warm, dry weather is easy on the joints, you know. Plus, lots of places you can have dinner at 5 and still make it home for Jeopardy. Hill will be a free agent at…

  7. Wizards’ rookie Booker done for season with crack in foot

    Mar 30, 2011, 11:38 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Washington Wizards

    Trevor Booker had developed into a fun little surprise in Washington. The rookie out of Clemson dropped 26 and 13 on Toronto a couple weeks ago and had a double-double against Denver earlier in the week. Plus he was just fun pounding away inside, which seemed a good balance with John Wall. And it looks…

  8. PBT Wednesday morning one liners

    Mar 30, 2011, 11:02 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Orlando Magic

    It’s cool because he gets to use the phrase “Magic Nuggets.” But Tom Ziller also has an interesting plan — what if the NBA did away with conferences and just took the best 16 teams and threw them in a bracket? Here’s what it looks like. And it looks pretty good. Eddy Rivera over at…

  9. Timberwolves Kevin Love expected to return Wednesday

    Mar 30, 2011, 10:26 AM EDT

    kevin love rebound

    After he injured his groin there was talk Kevin Love might shut it down for the season. Groins can linger, the Timberwolves were only playing for pride, why push it? But he’s pushed, and he practiced Tuesday and is expected to play Wednesday against the Bulls, he told the Star Tribune. “I feel good,” he…

  10. Nets part owner Jay-Z could end up paying for Kentucky visit

    2011 NBA All-Star Game - Performances And Celebrities

    Jay-Z is a hoops fan, just with a lot more access than the rest of us. Because what doorman anywhere is stopping Jay-Z when he walks up? Like the doorman at an NCAA tournament game. After Kentucky’s win over North Carolina Sunday to send them to the Final Four, Jay-Z was in the locker room…

  11. Video: Watch Monta Ellis, Golden State force OT in OKC

    Mar 30, 2011, 8:51 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Golden State was down six points with 13 seconds to go. It was all but over. Until a Reggie Williams three. Then a terrible inbounds pass and Monta Ellis calmly ducking a player then draining another corner three. Suddenly everything looked like overtime. The Warriors lost in OT (although Ellis got a pretty good look…

  12. Report: Jalen Rose arrested for drunk driving

    Mar 30, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    17th Annual ESPY Awards - Red Carpet

    Jalen Rose landed in some hot water for comments surrounding his Fab 5 ESPN documentary, but he apparently has a more pressing problem to deal with. Rose was arrested for drunk driving in West Bloomfield Township, Michigan, back on March 11, the Associated Press reports. TMZ spoke with Rose’s Los Angeles based attorney Keith Davidson,…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Thunder almost give one away, Warriors almost take it

    Mar 30, 2011, 7:22 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook

    What you missed while checking out what Super Mario would look like as a first-person shooter… The Cavaliers beating the Heat with an inside game was our game of the night. Thunder 115, Warriors 114 (OT): The Thunder had this one, up 10 inside five minutes and up six with 13 seconds to go. Just…

  14. Anaheim approves $75 million bond to lure Kings to city

    Mar 30, 2011, 2:01 AM EDT

    The Maloof brothers now have done pretty much everything but drive the moving trucks up to the Kings offices. Tuesday night one of the final hurdles in the path of the Kings relocating to Anaheim was cleared when the Anaheim City Council unanimously approved a lease for an NBA tenant in the Honda Center and…

  15. Cavaliers win could be blueprint for Heat playoff trouble

    Mar 29, 2011, 11:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Baron Davis and his swagger are a great storyline and a Heat killer. The cathartic feeling for Cavaliers fans makes headlines and the legions of Heat haters happy. Heat fans will rightfully counter this is one relatively meaningless game. And they’re right, this one game doesn’t matter. Rather, what should worry Heat fans is how…

  16. LeBron skips player introductions on return to Cleveland

    Mar 29, 2011, 10:21 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    UPDATE 10:21 pm: In his post game interview, James said he was using the restroom during the introductions. Certainly a legitimate reason. We’ll just say again — and even Kevin McHale said the same thing on NBA TV — with all the games I’ve watched over decades I don’t remember that happening to anyone else.…

  17. Heat don’t expect Udonis Haslem back anytime soon

    Mar 29, 2011, 9:01 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_g_haslem1_sw_576-thumb-250x140-15204.jpg for post 2933

    The Miami Heat could really use Udonis Haslem. They could use the depth, the strength inside, the rebounding, the defense. The Heat had hoped to get Haslem back from the torn ligament in his left foot by the start of the playoffs, but before tonight’s game in Cleveland Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Haslem wouldn’t…

  18. Coach K stirs up Duke vs. Fab 5 issue again. Ugh.

    Mar 29, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Michigan v Duke

    Grant Hill and Jalen Rose hugged it out. Or talked it out. Or tweeted it out. So finally we can put this whole Fab 5 vs. Duke thing to bed…. Then here comes Mike Krzyzewski. Like your grandfather that just heard about this Lady Gaga person and wants to tell you she can’t sing, he…

  19. LeBron’s entourage gets turned away from Cleveland arena

    Mar 29, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    There was a time — just a mere 11 months ago — when LeBron James and his crew had the run of Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Some say they ran the place. If they wanted an ice sculpture of a Harley-Davidson waiting on their arrival for each game, it was there. No more. When…

  20. UCLA, USC stars among those declaring for NBA Draft

    Mar 29, 2011, 4:32 PM EDT

    UCLA v Florida

    A number of college underclassmen are lining up to enter the NBA draft, lockout or no. Well, most are really testing the waters — if they don’t sign with an agent they do not lose eligibility and can return to college. But there are some names to watch and here are some of them. Tyler…
