  1. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 6: Celtics banged up but most will go

    May 27, 2010, 6:11 PM EDT

    At the end of Game 5 Wednesday night, Doc Rivers had to wonder just how many players he was going to be able to suit up for Game 6 Friday. By Thursday afternoon, things looked a lot better. Glen “Big Baby” Davis, who suffered a concussion when hit with an inadvertent Dwight Howard elbow, looks…

  2. Add the Clippers to Kelvin Sampson's suitors

    May 27, 2010, 5:50 PM EDT

    The Bucks’ successful season was sure to raise the individual stock of a number of the principals involved (Think John Salmons earned himself a few bucks in free agency with his tear?), and assistant coach Kelvin Sampson appears to be the first to reap the benefits. Not only do the Cavs seem to have legitimate…

  3. Quote of the Day: Louis Williams on super-teams

    May 27, 2010, 5:36 PM EDT

    “Shoutout to Lebron, d-Wade, Joe Johnson, and chris bosh for trying to create a NBA2k team. Lol. (they would win 80 games)” 76ers guard Louis Williams, via his twitter, in response to the reported upcoming players-only free agency summit between LeBron, Wade, and Joe Johnson. 

  4. Grizzlies GM still backs Randolph

    May 27, 2010, 4:44 PM EDT

    Well, at least somebody still likes Zach Randolph. For now. The day after word came out that Z-Bo has been implicated as a major marijuana supplier to the Indianapolis area, and just hours after word came out from Los Angeles that Z-Bo’s posse (at least) were involved in beating up a man at a strip…

  5. Denver's Birdman has knee surgery

    May 27, 2010, 4:21 PM EDT

    Chris Andersen was not the Birdman during the playoffs. He was battling knee pain and the intimidating, high-flying blocks and dunks were virtually nonexistent. Which really hurt the Nuggets against an undermanned Jazz front line Denver did not exploit. Not surprisingly, he has just undergone knee surgery, according to the Denver Post. He had a…

  6. A few notes from the NBA draft combine

    May 27, 2010, 4:17 PM EDT

    The NBA draft combine doesn’t get nearly as much coverage as the NFL draft combine, mostly because it’s a much worse predictor of future success in the pros. While plenty of football players can be effective without ever needing to actually touch the football, thus making their physical abilities more important, NBA players need skills…

  7. Rondo: "I feel like I'm the best at what I do"

    May 27, 2010, 3:52 PM EDT

    Up until games four and five of the Magic series, Rajon Rondo had been absolutely dominating the 2010 Playoffs. He absolutely destroyed the 61-win Cavaliers with transition play, pick-and-roll action, pinpoint passes, and suffocating defense on Mo Williams; even though the Cavs had the MVP on their side, Rondo often looked like the best player…

  8. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 5: Forget the bright shiny offenses, this one is all about the defense

    May 27, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    It’s not about Kobe Bryant seemingly scoring at will this series. Or Pau Gasol in the post. It’s not about Amare Stoudemire or the awakening of the Suns bench. It’s about defense — that is what has decided every game in this series up to now, it is what will decide Game 5 tonight at…

  9. Zach Randolph allegedly involved in strip club beating

    May 27, 2010, 2:35 PM EDT

    Say what you will about Zach Randolph’s defense, but the man knows how to steal headlines, if nothing else (hyuk, hyuk, hyuk). Just hours after it was reported that some fun evidence was discovered linking Randolph to large amounts of marijuana, TMZ (I know, I know) reported that Zach has also been implicated in a…

  10. Cavaliers interested in Kelvin Sampson?

    May 27, 2010, 2:33 PM EDT

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Cleveland Cavaliers have some interest in former college coach and current NBA assistant Kelvin Sampson. As of right now, the Cavs are reportedly just doing some “fact-finding” on Sampson, and have not yet zeroed in on Sampson as their next head coach.  Sampson was a college coach…

  11. Today is the day: The Clippers' LeBron James parade

    May 27, 2010, 2:29 PM EDT

    If you’re in Los Angeles and not chasing around the Kogi trucks, then maybe you want to swing by Staples Center/LA Live around 3 p.m. today for futile ad fascinating Clippers Fans LeBron James parade.

  12. Hawks owner Gearon the latest to be fined for "tampering"

    May 27, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    Well, at least the league is being consistent. Hawks owner Michael Gearon is the latest person to be fined by the league for publicly admitting that he has the common sense to want LeBron James on his basketball teams. The $25,000 fine was assessed because of Gearon’s comments in a recent Atlanta Journal-Constitution article, when…

  13. No three-year deals this time for LeBron, Wade

    May 27, 2010, 1:27 PM EDT

    It was a brilliant bit of strategy by LeBron James last time he was a free agent — with a six-year deal offered, he negotiated it down to just three years (about $60 million over the three years). It was brilliant because kept his options open. It kept pressure on the Cavaliers organization to build…

  14. Kendrick Perkins second technical rescinded by league, he will play in Game 6

    May 27, 2010, 12:57 PM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins gets to play another day. The league has rescinded Ed Rush’s technical foul called on Perkins late in the second quarter of Game 5. This means Perkins can play in Game 6 in Boston Friday night. However, if he picks up one more technical foul during the playoffs he will be suspended for…

  15. Michael Jordan to grace the cover of NBA 2k11

    May 27, 2010, 12:54 PM EDT

    The idea of a cover athlete for a sports video game is simple: brainstorm a list of current popular athletes — with emphasis on those with recent relevance — in the target sport, narrow them down based on willingness, costs, marketability, and other factors, then wash, rinse, and repeat every year. With Chris Paul set…

  16. Rudy Fernandez isn't drinking the Blazer Kool-Aid these days

    May 27, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    A long, long time ago, things were undeniably pleasant in Blazerland. Brandon Roy’s rise to stardom had invigorated an already fervent fan base, LaMarcus Aldridge was well on his way to becoming an impact player, and a collection of young talent spearheaded by the imminent Rookie of the Year, Greg Oden, looked set to take…

  17. Throw it down big man! Bill Walton is back in the booth.

    May 27, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Now you have another reason to watch Sacramento Kings games besides the mesmerizing game of Tyreke Evans — Bill Walton will be in the booth. It’s not every Kings game, but he will be a color analyst for some, according to the Sacramento Bee. He’ll attend the Kings games at Staples Center (both Lakers and…

  18. Dwyane Wade is not going back to Chicago

    May 27, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    Earlier we talked about the upcoming Apalachin Meeting with all the top NBA free agents conferring with each other. But in that same Chicago Tribune article where Wade spilled the beans on the meeting, he also pretty much ruled out returning to his hometown of Chicago to elevating the Bulls to elite. It sounds as…

  19. Lakers owner Jerry Buss is not talking about Phil Jackson

    May 27, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    Everybody has been talking a lot about the future of Phil Jackson, save for the couple people at the center of the debate. At each and every press conference, Jackson dances around the questions, revealing little. Well, except that he is going to wait until the season is over to decide, that he will have…
