  1. Maloofs shut down latest Sacramento arena plan

    Mar 27, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    Well, that didn’t take long. After a plan had been submitted that was supposed to save Sacramento from the Kings’ relocation to Anaheim, including a funding source, the Maloofs have already gone and rejected the proposal, because the money wasn’t there and called for renovation, not a new arena. “A representative of the Maloofs listened…

  2. Jalen Rose and Grant Hill bury the hatchet

    Mar 27, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    After the controversy surrounding Jalen Rose’s comments about Grant Hill in the Fab Five documentary for ESPN (along with Jimmy King’s comments about Hill being a female dog), it would appear things are on their back to recovery for the two’s friendship. Hill tweeted on Saturday: Had a great talk with @jalenrose today. We remain…

  3. Julian Wright refuses to enter game for Raptors, apologizes

    Mar 27, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Golden State Warriors

    Julian Wright never seems to have understood that the problems he’s faced in his NBA career are not the work of the bogeyman. He’s not the victim of a conspiracy to keep him off the floor. He struggles with basic flow on both sides of the ball and has never been able to apply his…

  4. Joe Johnson day-to-day with thumb injury

    Mar 27, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams, Atlanta Hawks

    Joe Johnson suffered a sprained thumb in the Hawks’ playoff-clinching win over the Nets Saturday night and will miss Sunday’s game in Cleveland at least while being evaluated. Afterwards, Johnson was pretty clear on the fact he wouldn’t be rushing back from injury this late in the season, especially after clinching the playoffs. “Maybe if…

  5. Zydrunas Ilgauskas to return to Heat Sunday

    Mar 27, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Friday we let you know of reports indicating Zydrunas Ilgauskas was on his way back to recovery from that grotesque foot injury he sustained when he stepped on a nail. Now comes word that ESPN reports Ilgauskas is expected to return to action Sunday against Houston for the first time in eight games. Ilgauskas’ return…

  6. If you take Deron Williams’ temperature on Jersey, bring something to keep warm

    Mar 26, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    Deron Williams is the future of the Nets. He’s the star that Mikhail Prokhorov has been searching for since he took over ownership of the team. Thwarted in the lottery for John Wall, thwarted in the biggest free agency period in history, thwarted in the pursuit of Melo, the Nets finally landed a superstar, and…

  7. Phil Jackson isn’t a big fan of the Kings’ Anaheim relocation plan

    Mar 26, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    Phil Jackson’s not exactly what you would call a friend to the NBA small market. He played in New York, coached in Chicago and then Los Angeles. He’s supported contraction, despite growing up, attending high school, and college in small market areas, albeit ones without NBA teams. But Jackson has been surprisingly supportive of Sacramento…

  8. Iggy says LeBron has peeled back on his intensity, physically

    Mar 26, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Andre Iguodala was asked Friday if he’d noticed any changes in LeBron James‘ game since joining the Heat. His answer wasn’t what you’d expect: “I’ve only noticed one small thing,” Iguodala said before taking time to find the right words. “I shouldn’t say he doesn’t jump as high, because he does jump as high,” Iguodala…

  9. Prospective lease agreement between Kings, city of Anaheim released

    Mar 26, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Gavin Maloof's Exclusive Housewarming Party

    There’s a deal on the table to kill professional basketball in Sacramento. Anaheim city officials Friday released an unsigned lease proposal between the city and the Sacramento Kings involving owners the Maloof brothers, and Honda Center operator Henry Samueli. From SBNation.com: The centerpiece of the agreement is an upfront $50 million loan to the Maloofs,…

  10. Jared Sullinger won’t be available in 2011 draft, will return to Ohio State

    Mar 26, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Kentucky v Ohio State

    Derrick Williams should be hearing cash register sounds in his head right about now. The 2011 NBA Draft is not slated to be terrific. It’s a weak class to begin with, shallow, with no “locks” at the top. Throw in the effect of a potential lockout on the process and you’re looking at a draft…

  11. Boston’s hit that special time of year where they don’t care again

    Mar 26, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Boston Celtics

    Ah, the early weeks of spring. Winters still lingers at the edge, nipping at heels. The NCAA tournament provides all sorts of drama. And the Celtics completely and totally stop giving a flying crap about their effort in regular season games. It’s become a yearly tradition to see the powerhouse contender tail off their efforts,…

  12. Wade’s stat stuffing brings Heat closer to 2nd seed

    Mar 26, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    The Heat brought it in the fourth against what you may not know is a surprisingly good Philadelphia 76ers squad in a 111-99 win. Sure, they’re not going to be headlining any Sunday afternoon nationally televised romps, but Doug Collins has put together a good team with solid chemistry, role players that can produce and…

  13. The Atlanta Hawks will soon be a playoff lock

    Mar 25, 2011, 10:30 PM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams, Atlanta Hawks

    With a win tonight, the Atlanta Hawks have a chance to lock up a spot in the playoffs. As we know, merely making an appearance in the postseason cures all ills; no malady can withstand the tide of good feelings that comes from playing in bonus basketball games, and the Hawks will be reborn again…

  14. Hornets’ head coach Monty Williams discusses moving forward without David West

    Mar 25, 2011, 9:59 PM EDT

    monty-williams-david-west-injury

    The loss of David West for the season due to a torn ACL injury was a devastating blow to a Hornets team that currently sits seventh in the Western Conference playoff picture. Head coach Monty Williams talked about it with the assembled media for the first time since the diagnosis became official Friday afternoon, as…

  15. Tyson Chandler sees home loss to San Antonio as a turning point for the Dallas defense

    Mar 25, 2011, 9:30 PM EDT

    108364400_crop_340x234

    Last Friday, the San Antonio Spurs went into Dallas and rocked the Mavericks on their home court. The final margin was just six points after a late-game flurry from the Mavs, but the Spurs were in control throughout. San Antonio put together an impressive offensive showcase, as the Spurs’ “Big Three” combined for 80 points…

  16. Rudy Gay has successful surgery on his left shoulder

    Mar 25, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    107532506_crop_340x234

    The Memphis Grizzlies have announced that Rudy Gay, who was injured during a game against the Sixers last month, has undergone surgery to reset his partially dislocated shoulder, per the Associated Press. Gay’s plan to have surgery was announced earlier this week, but the actual procedure was performed today, and has brought a complete termination…

  17. Hornets sign Patrick Ewing Jr. to a 10-day contract

    Mar 25, 2011, 7:37 PM EDT

    Patrick Ewing Jr.

    David West’s season is over, and thus, the Hornets’ season is over. New Orleans will still likely hold onto their playoff spot (though with West sidelined, a tough schedule ahead, and Houston on a roll, maybe we shouldn’t even take that much for granted), but even the slim chance the Hornets had to make it…

  18. Ilgauskas still recovering from infection, gauging progress on day-to-day basis

    Mar 25, 2011, 6:31 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Zydrunas Ilgauskas has missed six straight games with a foot injury, albeit one quite different than the myriad of foot ailments that have hindered him throughout his career. A wound to Ilgauskas’ foot — some reports claim that he stepped on a nail, while others cite a mere blister — opened up an opportunity for…

  19. Jermaine O’Neal set to return by the end of the month

    Mar 25, 2011, 5:50 PM EDT

    jermaine-oneal1

    Kendrick Perkins is gone, but the sky isn’t falling for Boston’s defense. Even with only one true center (if Nenad Krstic even qualifies) in the rotation, the Celtics have posted two fantastic defensive performances in a row, holding both the Grizzlies and the Knicks to under 97 points per 100 possessions. That’s a remarkable level…

  20. Hornets’ David West out for the season with torn ACL

    Mar 25, 2011, 5:22 PM EDT

    david-west-torn-acl

    The Hornets’ David West went down in a heap Thursday night, with what the team officially described as “left knee trauma” at the time. Further tests on Friday revealed the injury to be a torn ACL (according to multiple reports) which will rule West out for the remainder of this season. While the team might…
