    kyrie-irving

    Kryie Irving is leaving Duke after his freshman year to enter the NBA draft. It’s official. This wasn’t really a surprise to anyone except delusional, hard-core Duke fans who refuse to believe anyone is going to leave their heaven-on-earth campus, but reality intrudes once again. Irving likely will be the top overall pick. Start trying…

    Apr 6, 2011, 5:36 PM EST

    The LeBrons

    As we mentioned earlier, LeBron James‘ web series, “The LeBrons,” premiered today. Here are a few thoughts from the seven-minute premier episode: – “The LeBrons” is available for free on the internet, and doesn’t have any commercial breaks. How does it pay for itself? Blatant product placement! In the first episode, Nike, HP, Beats By Dre, and…

  5. Bucks claim “honors” as NBA’s most injured team. Congratulations!

    Apr 6, 2011, 4:19 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Milwaukee Bucks

    Yes, we know. Your team would have done so much better if it weren’t for the injuries. Just know that there is always some team that had it worse. Unless you’re a Milwaukee Bucks fan. Over at Basketball Prospectus, friend-of-the-site Kevin Pelton did the heavy lifting and compiled the lists of man games lost to…

  6. Shorthanded Wizards bringing in Larry Owens from D-League

    Apr 6, 2011, 3:24 PM EST

    larry-owens

    Remember yesterday when we told you that five key Washington Wizards were done for the rest of the season? (Of course you do, you commit every story here to memory. What else have you got to do?) That leaves nine guys on the Wizards roster — a roster that has won three in a row…

  7. Derrick Rose thinks Bulls are ready to win it all this year

    Apr 6, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose wouldn’t be Derrick Rose without his swagger. His confidence. So it shouldn’t be a shock that when asked if the Bulls — who have yet to get out of the first round — can suddenly jump to winning to winning a title, his response was yes. From the Waddle and Silvy show on…

  8. Bulls fan curses at, spits on Grant Hill… wait Grant Hill?

    Apr 6, 2011, 1:55 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Grant Hill is about the least offensive guy in the NBA. Even Jalen Rose gets along with him now. Hill doesn’t trash talk, was an elite player,  has fought back from devastating ankle injuries to be a key player again, and David Stern loves him because he doesn’t scare the rich corporate CEOs in the…

  9. Lakers say stop calling Pau Gasol soft

    Apr 6, 2011, 1:15 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Them’s fightin’ words to the Lakers. Well, at least verbal fighting. A couple people have taken swings at Pau Gasol and used the soft word recently, as ESPNLosAngeles.com reports, starting with the Knicks Amar’e Stoudemire. “He’s still soft,” Stoudemire said with a grin and a shrug. “But, he’s a good player, you know what I…

    the_lebrons_family

    “The LeBrons” — now with een more LeBron! Below is the first episode of The LeBrons, the animated spinoff of a commercial. Because if there is one thing we need more of its spin offs of commercials, like turning the GEICO caveman into a sitcom. How’d that work out? But this is going to be…

    Apr 6, 2011, 12:16 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Clippers

    Ben Wallace has one more season on what will almost certainly be his last NBA contract, he is set to make nearly $2.3 million. And that might not be enough to bring him back. Wallace has reached the end of a frustrating season in Detroit — one where his game regressed and the team was…

  12. If you believe in the Orlando Magic, just clap your hands

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    “Do you believe in fairies? Say quick that you believe. If you believe, clap your hands!” —J.M. Barrie, from The Adventures of Peter Pan. Apparently, the Orlando Magic work on the same principles as fictional fairies like Tinkerbell. They’ll die if you don’t believe in them. There’s plenty of cynicism around the Orlando Magic and…

  13. Nets want to re-sign Kris Humphries (then maybe trade him)

    Apr 6, 2011, 11:04 AM EST

    Kris Humphries

    Kris Humphries is an unrestricted free agent but says wants to come back to the Nets and be there when they move to Brooklyn. The Nets want Kris Humphries back. Well, at least until they trade him. But we’ll get to that later. Humphries had a break out season — credit The Kardashian Effect —…

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Atlanta’s Jason Collins’ sprained his ankle Tuesday night but it is being called “mild” by the team. Which is good if you’re a Hawks fan, he is the key to your chances against Orlando in the first round. By the way, Josh Smith sat out for the Hawks but coach Larry Drew said after the…

  15. Mike D’Antoni lets his frustration with Knicks play slip

    Apr 6, 2011, 10:13 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Because Mike D’Antoni likes coaching the New York Knicks, he doesn’t say bad things to the media about his boss, owner James Dolan. It was Dolan who pushed the Carmelo Anthony into the form it finally took in the end, he wanted the deal and was willing to give up players. Team president Donnie Walsh…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs hold home court, Cleveland gets company on the bottom

    Apr 6, 2011, 9:08 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed watching one wild bike race from Chile… Spurs 97, Hawks 90: Huge win for the Spurs because along with the Lakers loss this basically sews up home court for the Spurs in the West. As for why they won what was at times a sloppy game, they attacked inside and controlled the…

  17. Video: Tony Allen with the Windmill dunk of the night

    Apr 6, 2011, 8:31 AM EST

    tony allen

    In a game featuring Blake Griffin somebody else had the dunk of the night. It was Tony Allen on the breakaway, with time to put a little flourish on it. Make the home crowd happy. Didn’t really help the Grizzlies win, they fell to the Clippers. But it was fun.

  18. Spurs win, Lakers lose — top seed in the West rests in San Antonio

    Apr 6, 2011, 2:21 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    I hope y’all like Tex Mex, because the road to the NBA finals in the West runs through San Antonio. Sure, the two seed Lakers and top seed Spurs play next Tuesday, but now people will want to see that game about as much as they want to listen to a new Go-Go’s album. Or…

  19. Nuggets Mozgov leaves with ugly knee, ankle injury

    Apr 5, 2011, 10:51 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    We don’t know an official, final diagnosis — sometimes these things are not as bad as they look. And for Timofey Mozgov we hope that is true. Denver center Mozgov had to be helped off the court after suffering a knee injury late in the first quarter Tuesday night. The Thunder’s Nick Collison fell taking…

  20. Dwight Howard’s jump shot is solid, thank you very much

    Apr 5, 2011, 8:40 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Dwight Howard’s game has evolved. There was a time when it was fair to criticize him for having nothing but power moves. Those days are gone. Now Howard has a bag of tricks to reach into and it shows as he uses a team high 27.1 percent of the possessions but still has a high…
