    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    NBA playoff history is filled with teams who got blown out one game who bounced back the next game and won. Games and series can take dramatic swings. But after watching Game 1, when the Heat rolled the Knicks behind a big game from LeBron James, you have to wonder if the Knicks can do…

    Paul Silas

    After leading a Bobcats team to the worst winning percentage in NBA history, the Charlotte Bobcats announced they are not bringing back coach Paul Silas, team president Rod Higgens said.

    The students at the historic Stuyvesant High School in New York knew who they wanted as their graduation speaker — Jeremy Lin. He’s the idol of the smart set in New York now. And this is a pretty big honor as Stuyvesant is a New York public school known for the math and science but…

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    No sooner did the forearms of Tyson Chandler meet the force of LeBron James then the referees in Game 1 of Heat-Knicks huddled to come up with what has been the consensus answer for flagrant fouls this season: Assume the worst and allow the video to sort it out. With all Flagrant Foul 2 calls…

    Apr 30, 2012, 11:34 AM EDT

    Bulls Rose is helped off the court after getting hurt during their NBA quarter-final playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Chicago

    It has sounded like someone with a terminal illness around the Chicago Bulls since Derrick Rose blew out his ACL at the end of the Bulls Game 1 win over Philadelphia Saturday. Everyone (including myself) has said they are fine for now — they can still get past the Sixers — but the writing is…

    Metta World Peace has a lot of time on his hands right now, what with the seven game suspension for elbowing James Harden‘s head and all. So, he’s been putting up videos on the Web. Like this one, joking about the Lakers offense. I’m willing to bet Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol found this a…

    Rose injury

    Back in January USA Basketball released a list of 20 players, a pool from which the United States basketball team for the London Olympics would be chosen.

    Apr 30, 2012, 4:36 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Marc Gasol, Caron Butler

    When things went wrong for the Clippers for the first 39 minutes of Game 1 against Memphis, they went terribly wrong. They were able to come back from most of that and get the win. But one thing will linger — Caron Butler has a broken left hand and will be out at least a…

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks - Game One

    Rajon Rondo has the right to be frustrated with this call by referee Marc Davis, it was a bad call. All the Celtics should be frustrated with their team’s play Sunday in a loss in Game 1. But you cannot bump an official. Ever. Under any circumstances. Rondo said after the game that he didn’t…

    Josh Smith

    After years of watching the Atlanta Hawks operate within a zone of improbability, you’d think we might be better prepared to see them again best a sure favorite. Yet here we are, as dumbstruck as the now 0-1 Boston Celtics. Atlanta didn’t stumble into a revelation of efficiency or make a crucial late-season addition. They…
