    Apr 12, 2011, 12:35 PM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Butler v UConn

    Two-and-done? While the age limit should be a side issue to the upcoming NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement — percentage of basketball related income is the real number to watch — it looks like it could be another little battleground. Billy Hunter from the players union said that he didn’t think it was appropriate to keep…

  2. Delonte West injured again, Shaq set for playoffs return

    Apr 12, 2011, 11:41 AM EDT

    Delonte West, Rajon Rondo

    Is there a M*A*S*H* unit that follows the Celtics around? It just seems it would be cost efficient at this point. Boston picked up another injury Monday, but just one so it may be under their daily quota. This time it was Delonte West spraining his ankle, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New England.…

    An idea emailed to me by reader Vincent that is an interesting longshot: This summer LeBron can opt out of or renegotiate his Nike shoe deal, according to reports. Recently one of Nike’s star shoe designers publicly ripped LeBron and his entourage for their lack of focus (and having too many voices in the process)…

  5. Playoff scenarios: The East is set, the West we need Stephen Hawking to explain

    Apr 12, 2011, 9:54 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

    Back East they have their act together. They’ve planned in advance and they know what they want to do for the playoffs. Out West they have procrastinated. Always waiting to the last second. And the whole thing is complicated. Trigonometry complicated. Bring in Stephen Hawking and Brian Green to explain it complicated. So we’ll start…

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while signing up for Bacon Camp… Heat 98, Hawks 90: The Heat came out playing with real energy — they wanted to win this and take care of the second seed. Miami got help early on because Atlanta just played lazy defense in the first half. Hawks players did not fight over…

    Apr 11, 2011, 11:53 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva Ryan Hollins fight

    Soon to be new Pistons owner Tom Gores was in the building. Charlie Villanueva has an interesting way of impressing him. What ended as one of the craziest moments of the year — with police trying to stop a locker room fight — started on the court with 5:45 left in the fourth quarter. The…

  9. The decision on Keith Smart is no decision. For now.

    Apr 11, 2011, 10:40 PM EDT

  10. Celtics Sit Starters, Choose Rest Over Playoff Seeding

    Apr 11, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    celtics-benched

    Any Celtics fans in the D.C. area who bought tickets to Monday’s game in hopes of seeing Boston prepare for the postseason with a thrashing of the home-town Wizards is going to be disappointed.  Boston may still very well beat Washington, because the Wizards, in the simplest of terms, just aren’t very good. But the…

    Apr 11, 2011, 5:47 PM EDT

    Perry Jones

    According to Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick, sources close to Perry Jones are saying that the Baylor freshman will return to school next season instead of declaring for the 2011 NBA Draft. Jones’ averages of 13.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game were relatively modest, but he was projected to be a top-five pick in next…

  13. Danny Granger might have been wise not to anger the Bulls

    Apr 11, 2011, 5:43 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    There is little hope for Indiana in it’s first round, one-versus-eight matchup against Chicago. The debate is really can they win one game or not. But Pacers star Danny Granger was honest with the Indianapolis Star and in doing so made sure Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau had some bulletin board material to work with. “Boston’s…

  14. Gregg Popovich no fan of that new-fangled three point line

    Apr 11, 2011, 4:11 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    We all knew Gregg Popovich was old school. We just didn’t know how old school Like 1970s old school. Like Steve Martin doing King Tut on Saturday Night Live old school. Like The Who when they still had Keith Moon as their drummer old school. (Actually, that last one is not a bad school to…

  15. Keith Smart thinks Keith Smart should keep his job

    Apr 11, 2011, 3:42 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Golden State Warriors

    Keith Smart’s job was in danger the moment he signed a contract without a guaranteed second year. Not that he had a lot of choice. And Smart knew if he did well enough he would be back. But there are plenty of people in the Bay Area that do not think he has done near…

    Apr 11, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    Eddy Curry — bought out by the Knick and having been working out in Chicago to get in NBA shape — got his chance. The Miami Heat brought him in for a series of workouts. The Heat need a viable big man, Eddy Curry once was a viable big man. (Don’t laugh, the Heat and…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Chicago finishes regular season as No. 1

    Apr 11, 2011, 2:36 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Chicago Bulls

    Our final rankings make for an interesting playoff comparison — the top three come in as the hottest teams going into the playoffs, but the next three more veteran squads. Who do you take when it really matters? (We lean to the second three, but the Bulls may prove us wrong. Again.) 1. Bulls (60-20,…

  19. Reality: Lamar Odom admits father was heroin addict

    Apr 11, 2011, 12:49 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    If anyone asks, you’re saying didn’t watch Khloe & Lamar Sunday. There was Boston and Miami in the NBA and the Masters and you don’t watch that crap anyway. If you secretly watched it, we won’t tell anyone. We won’t tell anyone you ate chocolate covered strawberries while you watched it, either. But in case…

  20. Kendrick Perkins brings big, bad screens to Thunder offense

    Apr 11, 2011, 12:12 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Phoenix Suns

    Ron Artest hounds Kevin Durant like few defenders in the league. Durant’s preferred catch-and-shoot is often taken away and Durant has to put the ball on the floor more (which he did well getting into the lane Sunday in the Thunder’s win). But Durant got some better looks Sunday because of the offensive contributions of…
