  1. Their fans may but Spurs are not going to panic

    Apr 1, 2011, 2:03 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    For the first time since Tim Duncan came to San Antonio, the Spurs have lost five games in a row. Right before the playoffs. In the season when it looked like they had found the fountain of youth, when they were back to being elite. The season maybe they could get one for the thumb.…

  2. Lockout might keep Marcin Gortat from being hammer for Poland

    Apr 1, 2011, 1:32 PM EDT

    Marcin Gortat, VInce Carter

    Poland, like many countries this summer, will be playing in a tournament trying to earn a spot in the 2012 Olympics. In this case, it is EuroBasket 2011, where the Polish team is a long shot but at least they are in the dance and can dream like VCU. Except Poland may not have its…

  3. NBA Draft and the Final Four, here’s a few guys to watch

    Apr 1, 2011, 1:04 PM EDT

    Arizona v Connecticut

    Your bracket is toast. Don’t lie to me and say you had Butler in the Final Four, let alone VCU. You’re not winning any money in the office pool this year, that is going to the guy three cubicles over who hasn’t watched a college hoops game in years and made his picks based on…

  4. Dennis Rodman to have jersey retired by Pistons Friday

    Apr 1, 2011, 11:46 AM EDT

    Dennis Rodman

    This is overdue. That doesn’t mean there isn’t drama. There is always drama when Dennis Rodman is involved. The former Piston rebounding and defensive machine that was a key part of the Pistons’ Bad Boy title teams will have his No. 10 retired by the Pistons in a ceremony Friday night. The only concern was…

    Apr 1, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    kyrie-irving

    Duke’s Kyrie Irving missed most of the college season with a foot injury, came back in the NCAA Tournament and quickly established himself as the best player on the Blue Devil team again. That was good enough for scouts — he is pretty much the consensus No. 1. He’s the one guy in this draft…

  6. PBT Friday morning one liners

    Apr 1, 2011, 10:42 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Miami Heat

    Denver’s Gary Forbes talks about living with diabetes. Chris Webber ripped the Mavs and called them “soft” on the TNT broadcast after their loss to the Lakers Thursday. Breaking down the Lakers improved defense of late, which dominated the Mavs last night. The Sixers are making their playoff push and Evan Turner got a DNP-CD…

    Apr 1, 2011, 10:11 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    It will be one final, desperate plea from Sacramento that will fall on deaf ears. But it’s going to happen. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson has been granted the chance to speak to the NBA Board of Governors — made up of the NBA owners — when they meet April 14-15 in New York, he said…

  8. Video: Manu Ginobili with the playground fake on Kevin Garnett

    Apr 1, 2011, 9:05 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    There were not a lot of highlights for the Spurs out of the loss to the Celtics Thursday. San Antonio got it’s big three back, the Celtics still don’t have a center, yet Boston won with room to spare. But there was this. Manu Ginobili put on a playground move and Kevin Garnett totally bit.…

    This has happened twice now. First the representatives of Pistons owner Karen Davidson — who has tried to sell the team for the past 15 months after the passing of her husband Bill — entered into exclusive negotiations with Mike Ilitch to sell the team. But after he got a closer look at the books…

    Celtics

    What you missed while watching the Hangover 2 trailer…. Celtics 107, Spurs 97: The Celtics ultimately will go as Rajon Rondo goes. He’s been injured and slumping. He’s back, and if he is the Celtics are back with him. You know the Celtics are going to defend well (they still need a stabilizing presence in…

    Memphis Grizzlies v Boston Celtics

    UPDATE 11:51 pm: The Celtics announced that Krstic will undergo an MRI on his knee on Saturday, after the Celtics return to Boston. You can count him out for Friday night’s game against the Hawks in Atlanta for sure, as well as Sunday against Detroit. Somewhere in between there we should learn how long he…

    Mar 31, 2011, 8:55 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    Earlier today, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Shaquille O’Neal might not really be ready to go for a while and his recovery could bleed into the playoffs.

  15. Kobe’s China smart car commercial. You read that right.

    Mar 31, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT

    Kobe China

    I have no doubt that the BRABUS smart car is pretty roomy. I bet my six-foot frame would slide in quite comfortably. I still would have loved to see Kobe try to squeeze into the small smart car for the filming of this Chinese commercial (via Ball Don’t Lie). You can make your own jokes…

    Mar 31, 2011, 5:58 PM EDT

    Jordan Bentley

    The front of the Nike Air Jordan 21 was designed to look like the front of Michael Jordan’s customized Bentley Continental GT Coupe. Because, if you are Michael Jordan you can have a multinational corporation design a shoe based on your car. Jordan has now sold the car Volo Auto Museum, reports CSN Chicago. The…

  17. Kings’ relocation: Follow the television money to Anaheim

    Mar 31, 2011, 4:35 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    That lease deal the city of Anaheim approved and is now awaiting a Maloof signature is not a great one for the Kings. Not really close. They take on more debt — a $50 million loan — and don’t get all the luxury box money, and just a percentage of concessions, parking and other incomes.…

    Gasol_brothers

    Don’t be shocked if there is an upset in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. The top four teams — the Spurs, Lakers, Mavericks and Thunder — are all a notch above the teams below them. But the teams below them are hot. They each create some matchup problems and have been exploiting…
