  1. Dwight Howard wants to stay in Orlando but things must change

    Jun 13, 2011, 11:16 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    It’s really the same message he’s been sending for a while now, but in its most clear form yet. Dwight Howard would love to stay a member of the Orlando Magic, but he is going to test the free agent market in 2012. If Orlando does not win a title or make a big step…

  2. The Miami Heat will be back. Sorry, it is true.

    Jun 13, 2011, 10:50 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    People around the nation are celebrating at the demise of the Miami Heat. The narrative that it is poetic justice for a team of veterans that played smart and was better than the sum of their parts would defeat the Heat seemed like poetic justice for many. But Miami will be back. They are only…

  3. Video: Jason Terry takes over in Game 6

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:51 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dirk Nowitzki was having one of those nights. Dallas needed to win Game 7 (they didn’t want to give Miami life) and their star and best scorer couldn’t find his rhythm. Enter Jason Terry. The former Sixth Man of the Year came in and started to light it up, hitting everything on his way to…

  4. League to review tape of Heat, Mavs altercation

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:42 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The good news is nobody is getting suspended from Game 7. But the league is going to review the tape from an altercation that started between DeShawn Stevenson and Udonis Haslem in the second quarter. If someone did leave the bench to enter the fray they could face a fine and be suspended at the…

  5. LeBron has a few arrogant words for those who hate him

    Jun 13, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    It seemed like most of America was rooting against LeBron James. The Decision. The pep rally. The air of arrogance around him and the team coming into the season. It turned people off. A lot of people. Most of America. When asked after the game (in an interview broadcast on NBA TV) about how it…

  6. In Dirk Nowitzki’s moment

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:41 AM EST

    Screen shot 2011-06-13 at 2.34.22 AM

    Dirk Nowitzki will never hear the end of the question. In the ensuing days, weeks, months, and even years, he’ll be posed the same inquiry over and over, so many times that his answer will grow repetitive but never robotic. The very thought will always invoke the same emotion he felt on this night, this…

  7. Dallas won the title, Miami didn’t lose it

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The story was not the Dallas Mavericks and their incredible shooting, it was the Lakers collapse. Then it was how the Thunder were not ready. Now, it was how the Miami Heat lacked discipline, could not execute at the end of games and how LeBron James faltered. That’s not what the story should be. The…

  8. Dan Gilbert, Mo Williams enjoy the Heat loss too much

    Jun 13, 2011, 1:51 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The wounds are not healed in Cleveland. And watching LeBron James and the Heat lose was cathartic for many in Ohio. Or people who used to be in Ohio. Or people who just felt burned by LeBron. Or actually most of America. That includes Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, he of the comic-sans LeBron rant from…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Heat’s lack of discipline ends their season

    Jun 13, 2011, 12:37 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The Miami Heat were the most talented team in the NBA this past season. They were two fourth-quarter collapses away from sweeping the NBA Finals. None of that matters after they lost Game 6 by a final score of 105-95, and the series by a final score of 4-2. Miami’s losses in Game 2 and…

  10. Dallas may have won last old-school title for while

    Jun 13, 2011, 12:07 AM EST

    APTOPIX NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Dallas won it all. They earned it. They get the banner and the rings (if they do rings) and the bragging rights. They earned them. But everybody wants to be Miami. Not the fans. Outside of South Florida the Heat the Heat are despised, treated with the same venom usually reserved for politicians who text…

  11. Dallas Mavericks are your new NBA Champions

    Jun 12, 2011, 11:12 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dallas was the best team. The Dallas Mavericks got contributions from their superstar Dirk Nowitzki, but they also got a huge game from Jason Terry, solid play from everyone — even Brian Cardinal and Ian Mahinmi in Game 6 — and they won 105-95 to take the NBA finals 4-2. Mark Cuban — who turned…

  12. Ramon Sessions could be done in Cleveland. There will be buyers on the market.

    Jun 12, 2011, 4:06 PM EST

    SESSIONS_RAMON

    Ramon Sessions has had a weird career. He has a knack for winding up in places where he’s not needed, so even though he plays well, he’s never a priority. It happened in Milwaukee, and now it’s happening in Cleveland. From Ohio.com: Sessions’ agent, Chubby Wells, hasn’t asked the Cavaliers for a trade yet. That…

  13. Several internationals may pull out of NBA draft

    Jun 12, 2011, 3:32 PM EST

    LucasNogueira

    By Monday, players have to decide if they are in or out of the NBA draft… well, not college players because the NCAA makes them decide much earlier rather than working out for and getting good information from NBA teams before they make their decision. But that’s another issue. For the international players, they have…

  14. Charles Barkley wants to own an NBA team

    Jun 12, 2011, 1:22 PM EST

    Barkley, representing the 1992 United States Olympic "Dream Team"  in the Basketball Hall of Fame class of 2010, speaks in Springfield

    And you thought David Stern had to get used to Mark Cuban… imagine Charles Barkley, NBA owner. The Round Mound of Rebound and current analyst for TNT spoke on a conference call to promote the American Century Championship golf tournament — right here on NBC July 15-17 — and was asked about the potential sale…

  15. NBA Finals: Three things to get LeBron James going

    Jun 12, 2011, 12:03 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    There’s a lot of scrutiny on LeBron James‘ intangibles. How much effort he’s put in during these Finals. How much patience. How much intensity. How much focus. Is his head right? It goes on and on and on, ignoring the fact that the Mavericks have game-planned for James about as well as you can. They’ve…

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

    Jun 12, 2011, 10:03 AM EST

    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…

  17. Video: Heat, Mavericks talk about Game 6

    Jun 11, 2011, 8:12 PM EST

    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,…

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

    Jun 11, 2011, 7:38 PM EST

    jason-terry-game-5

    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…

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

    Jun 11, 2011, 6:00 PM EST

    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…
