    Jun 16, 2010, 9:01 AM EDT

    Steve Kerr’s job number one this summer is to re-sign Amare Stoudemire. Make that was job number one. His new job number one is to work out that contract with TNT. Job number two is to stay out of his wife and kids way — they have a routine set. So what happens to the…

  2. Quote of the Day: Big Baby's motivation speech

    Jun 16, 2010, 8:10 AM EDT

    “We went through too many ups and downs to lose like this,” Davis said. “Out of all the teams in the league we were the one that struggled. We were the one that went through the bumps and bruises. We went through the, ‘we’re old.’ We went through the ‘oh, they can’t play, they’re going…

  3. NBA Finals, Lakers Celtics: Role Players turn game six into a blowout

    Jun 16, 2010, 1:33 AM EDT

    In games four and five, the main difference between the Lakers and the Celtics was that the Celtic role players played like they were ready to win an NBA Finals, and the Laker role players played like they were terrified to be playing in an NBA Finals.  You can talk all you want about what…

  4. NBA finals Lakers Celtics Game 6: Blogbook thinks the C's have 'Tremors'

    Jun 16, 2010, 1:29 AM EDT

    A collection of thoughts on Lakers-Celtics Game 6… You’re all familiar with “Tremors“, right? Classic mid-90′s comedy horror film about gigantic sand-worm-like creatures that come up from the ground and suck people into the earth, eating them? Yeah, the Lakers were a lot like that tonight. They overwhelmed Boston from the beginning, and you could…

  5. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 6: Perkins goes out, Celtics go down. But is it for the count?

    Jun 16, 2010, 1:23 AM EDT

    Boston did not lose this game at the 5:30 mark of the first quarter. When Kendrick Perkins went down the Lakers were already up 6 points, L.A. had been dominating the boards, they were shooting better, they were playing with energy and getting to the 50/50 balls. But that moment may have cost them Game…

  6. NBA finals Lakers Celtics Game 6: Lakers bench arrives just in time

    Jun 16, 2010, 12:20 AM EDT

    Something about home cooking. Does the bench body good. There’s been a high level of complexity to the results of the NBA finals thus far. Everything from the Lakers’ ball movement to the Celtics rebounding have influenced the outcome. But a consistent factor in deciding these games has been the output of the respective benches.…

    Jun 15, 2010, 10:27 PM EDT

    This was supposed to be a close series.  It has been pretty much, up until this half. The Lakers played much better defense than the last couple games, holding Boston to 34 percent shooting, 2 of 10 from three and just 31 first half points. Meanwhile the Lakers converted those misses into a lot of…

  8. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 6: Pregame notes

    Jun 15, 2010, 8:22 PM EDT

    A few notes from inside Staples Center to tide you over until game time — and our live chat. Which you are coming back for, right? Right?!? * Phil Jackson said to expect some action with Kobe moving off the ball to get free, and less pick-and-roll action. That is smart. * He also said…

  9. Avery Johnson optimistic in introductory conference

    Jun 15, 2010, 8:15 PM EDT

    Now updated with some video highlights at the end.

    Jun 15, 2010, 7:37 PM EDT

    It’s done. After days of deliberation, more deliberation, and even more very public deliberation, Tom Izzo has decided to stay at Michigan State University and decline a rather substantial contract offered by the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Good riddance. At this point, the pros and cons have been…

  11. NBA Finals, Lakers Celtics: How Boston can end the season tonight

    Jun 15, 2010, 7:16 PM EDT

    Nobody gave Boston much of a chance heading into these playoffs, mostly because they hobbled and sleptwalked their way through the regular season. Ever since the playoffs started, the Celtics and their ultra-powered defense have taken their game to a whole other level, and now they’re one win away from being NBA champions. However, getting…

    Jun 15, 2010, 6:56 PM EDT

    The Lakers are 48 minutes away from losing their second NBA Finals in three years. They’re also 48 minutes away from forcing a game seven in their building. Their backs are against the wall at the current moment, but this is a 57-win team who has only lost one home game in these playoffs. And…

  16. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 6: For Lakers, it is back to the beginning

    Jun 15, 2010, 3:27 PM EDT

    What do you do when things aren’t working? Because things are not working for the Lakers. In a series that was going to be decided inside, Boston is wining the war. The Lakers shot just 47 percent (8 of 17) at the rim last game. That is 47 percent on layups and tip ins. The…

  17. Your NBA Finals complaining stats

    Jun 15, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

    NBA referees call lots of fouls and violations over the course of a game. The players those fouls and violations are called on often disagree with the rulings made against them. This much we know. But which players are the biggest whiners when a whistle doesn’t go their way? Any NBA fan curious about that…

    Jun 15, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

  19. Avery Johnson may hire Sam Mitchell as an assistant

    Jun 15, 2010, 2:26 PM EDT

    Fired ex-coaches stick together. Apparently. Because according to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, new Net’s head man Avery Johnson is interviewing former Raptors head coach Sam Mitchell for an assistant’s job. Always a smart thing to have a former Coach of the Year on the sidelines. And it’s good to see Mitchell get another chance. Other assistant…
