  1. Why did Warrior fans boo?

    Mar 20, 2012, 10:36 AM EDT

    Joe Lacob

    The timing was uncomfortable for everyone — it was supposed to be a night about Chris Mullin. One of the legends of the Golden State Warriors, the Hall of Fame player and former team GM, getting his number retired. But instead, it will be known as the night Warriors fans unloaded on team co-owner Joe…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bulls are beating everybody

    Mar 20, 2012, 9:08 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Joakim Noah

    What you missed while getting emails from your dead friend…. Bulls 85, Magic 59: Chicago is now 10-4 this season when Derrick Rose sits and now have beaten the Heat and Magic without him in the last week. Credit where credit is due — they have been playing the best basketball in the NBA for…

  3. Video: Point guards with huge slams on Monday night

    Mar 20, 2012, 8:28 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    We’ll let you decide who you think had the better dunk. Clearly Deron Williams above showed some power and athleticism with that throwdown above. But I like Jeff Teague over Ray Allen better.  

  4. Nuggets Danilo Gallinari breaks thumb, could be out month

    Mar 20, 2012, 3:34 AM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari

    In a tight Western Conference the Denver Nuggets are only a game and a half out of the nine seed — and missing the playoffs entirely — and this is not going to help their cause. Danilo Gallinari — the leading scorer on the Nuggets with 15.6 points per game — broke the thumb on…

  5. Warriors fans hijack Mullin number retirement to boo owner

    Mar 20, 2012, 1:59 AM EDT

    Lacob Chris Mullin AP

    I’ve never seen a number retirement ceremony go badly before. I have now. Chris Mullin was having his number retired by the Golden State Warriors Monday night, but when owner Joe Lacob took the microphone — right after Mullin — fans unleashed a torrent of boos. You can see it in the video above. Why?…

  6. Report: Celtics, Heat in lead to get Ronny Turiaf’s services

    Mar 19, 2012, 10:39 PM EDT

    Ronny Turiaf

    Ronny Turiaf headed west on the trade deadline — well, that’s not accurate, his contract headed West. His contract followed JaVale McGee from Washington to Denver (with Nene headed the other direction) but the Nuggets had no intention of keeping him and he is being waived and bought out as we speak. He will be…

  7. Rockets Patrick Patterson fined for tweet ripping referees

    Mar 19, 2012, 8:35 PM EDT

    Patrick Patterson

    Note to NBA players: Putting something out twitter is pretty much the same as telling something to a reporter after the game. At least it is in the eyes of the NBA league office. Most importantly, it is the same thing in the eyes of NBA VP Stu Jackson, the guy doles out the fines.…

  8. Clipper Darrell will continue to be Clipper Darrell

    Mar 19, 2012, 7:08 PM EDT

    clipper darrell

    Well, our relatively short local unpleasant dream is over. Darrell Bailey, a Clippers super-fan who has been in the news lately when the Clippers sought to ban him from calling himself “Clipper Darrell” when he made public appearances, will continue to use the name “Clipper Darrell.” From ESPN Los Angeles’ Arash Markazi: [Bailey and the…

  9. Report: Memphis close to signing Gilbert Arenas

    Mar 19, 2012, 6:51 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Memphis is the five seed in the West, a good team who just got Zach Randolph back in the lineup after missing most of the season with a knee injury. This is a team that knocked the Spurs out of the playoffs and pushed the Thunder hard last year — and is now better. A…

  10. Gooden, Bynum named players of the week

    Mar 19, 2012, 6:36 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    From NBA.com: The Milwaukee Bucks’ Drew Gooden and the Los Angeles Lakers’ Andrew Bynum today were named the Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Monday, March 12, through Sunday, March 18. Gooden, Milwaukee’s second consecutive Player of the Week winner (Ersan Ilyasova), led the Bucks to a 3-0 week…

  11. Shane Battier would welcome anti-flop regulations, but wants offensive floppers penalized as well

    Mar 19, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Kane Fitzgerald

    A lot of NBA fans hate “flopping,” or the practice of a defensive player falling back like he was knocked clean out after an offensive player so much as touches him, with a passion. There has even been talk of passing some rules that would penalize a “flop.” Shane Battier, who is among the league…

  12. Jermaine O’Neal to undergo season-ending wrist surgery

    Mar 19, 2012, 5:35 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    From the Boston Herald’s Steve Bulpett: Jermaine O’Neal will have season-ending surgery on his left wrist. The 33-year old Boston Celtics center was once considered one of the game’s best big men, but O’Neal, who was drafted out of high school, aged quickly, and has not been a truly effective center for some time, although…

  13. Kings buy out J.J. Hickson

    Mar 19, 2012, 5:05 PM EDT

    Hickson Kings

    From Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski: JJ Hickson has completed a buyout with the Kings, league source tells Y! The 23-year old Hickson was drafted 19th overall by the Cavaliers in 2008 after his freshman year at North Carolina State. Hickson is a tremendous athlete, showed flashes of brilliance with Cleveland, and even started for the Cavaliers before…

  14. Chris Bosh starts talking to himself again, has big game

    Mar 19, 2012, 4:28 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Miami Heat

    FOX Sports’ Chris Tomasson has the story: MIAMI — Chris Bosh was talking Sunday night and nobody was answering. That’s the way his teammates like it. You see, the Miami forward speaks to himself during games. And one of the apparent problems during his recent slump was he hadn’t been chattering enough. “Somebody said I wasn’t talking…

  15. Warriors to retire Chris Mullin’s number Monday night

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    chris-mullin

    Chris Mullin was a mix of players — part gym rat (that outside shot), part New York playground. He blended that together into a Hall of Fame career as a player who had his greatest years as part of Run TMC in Golden State. He’s a Bay Area hoop icon. Finally, Golden State is rewarding…

  16. NBA Draft returning to New Jersey even though NBA isn’t

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:34 PM EDT

    Irving stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    There is another summer of major renovations coming to Madison Square Garden — which means the NBA Draft is on the move again. It’s returning to New Jersey and the Prudential Center. Even though the NBA isn’t. Newark Mayor Cory Booker tweeted this Monday: Thrilled 2 announce #Newark will host the #NBAdraft + Fanfest for…

  17. Michael Jordan returned to the NBA 17 years ago today

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    Got a great reminder today from the guys at basketinside.com — they do a good job covering all that his happening in Europe — that it was March 19, 1995, that Michael Jordan returned to the Bulls after a couple of seasons swinging and missing at curve balls in the minor leagues. Seventeen years ago…

  18. NBA Power Rankings: Suns are rising, Spurs climb too.

    Mar 19, 2012, 2:27 PM EDT

    John Lucas III, Carlos Boozer

    Trade deadline moves aren’t changing the top of the rankings much, but we will see Portland and some other teams fall in the coming weeks. And we don’t know what the Nets are thinking either, so don’t ask. 1. Bulls (37-10, last week ranked number 1). They beat the Heat without Derrick Rose in the…

  19. Antoine Walker has to sell championship ring due to bankruptcy

    Mar 19, 2012, 1:41 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat  - Game 4

    Antoine Walker’s financial troubles are gigantic. Like $12.7 million in debts forcing bankruptcy gigantic. Gambling addictions can do that to you. And it led to this note — Walker was forced to sell the championship ring he won as a member of the 2006 Miami Heat, according to TMZ. According to court docs, Walker had…

  20. Report: Odom asked Mavericks to buy him out last month

    Mar 19, 2012, 1:10 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Evan Turner, Lavoy Allen

    Lamar Odom is not a player that does a great job compartmentalizing his personal life from basketball. What happens off the court impacts him on it. With a host of personal issues — a car he was riding in last summer hitting and killing a boy in New York, a health scare with his father,…
