  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Kendrick Perkins second technical rescinded by league, he will play in Game 6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 The league has rescinded Ed Rush’s technical foul called on Perkins late in the second quarter of Game 5.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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 5: Does one good game deserve another?

    May 27, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Here’s what we learned after the game last night: Stan Van Gundy hates Rasheed Wallace in a good way, the Magic get how hard Game 6 will be, and Big Baby is always a little bit loopy.  

  11. Tampering of a different kind: LeBron, Wade and Johnson to discuss plans together

    May 27, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    It’s a whole different kind of collusion, and there is nothing the league can do about it. Some time next month, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Joe Johnson are all going to sit down together and talk free agency plans, Wade told the Chicago Tribune. All before the July 1 official start to free agency.…

  12. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic: Game 6 or bust for Boston

    May 27, 2010, 9:13 AM EDT

    Give credit to the Magic — a lot of teams would have just rolled over after losing three straight games and meekly surrendered their season. I’m looking at you, Atlanta. The Magic showed some fight, caught a couple breaks and won Game 4 in overtime. Then they came out and threw a knockout punch. A…

  13. NBA Draft: Blazers admit they are looking to move up, but just a little

    May 27, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Portland has been one of the teams mentioned as a possible trading partner for the Minnesota Timberwolves at for or the Sacramento Kings at five. Maybe not. Blazers left-hanging-in-the-wind General Manager Kevin Pritchard told the Portland Tribune the Blazers are looking to move up from their No. 22 position on the draft board, but not…

  14. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 5: Magic find their form, pull within game of Celtics

    May 27, 2010, 12:08 AM EDT

    You can talk about Perkins’ suspension. You can talk about Rajon Rondo’s second consecutive sub-par game. You can talk about Garnett and Pierce both struggling from the field. But the biggest reason the Orlando Magic won game five of the Eastern Conference Finals is that they played like the team who won 59 games in the regular…

  15. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 5: The Celtics are banged up, but not the ones you'd suspect

    May 26, 2010, 11:42 PM EDT

    Coming into the playoffs, the big question about the Boston Celtics was health. Would Ray Allen have his legs? Would Paul Pierce’s shoulder and knee respond? Would KG’s knee hold up after giving out last year? The Big Three were the question. And when the Celtics ripped off eleven wins in 14 games, they looked…

  16. Zach Randolph implicated as major marijuana supplier in Indianapolis

    May 26, 2010, 11:04 PM EDT

    Zach Randolph, drug kingpin? That is the charge coming out of Indianapolis — he has been implicated as a major marijuana supplier in the Indianapolis area. Randolph has not been arrested or charged, but he is currently in the middle of a police investigation in Indiana. Randolph was born and raised in Marion, Indiana, about…

  17. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 5: Get ready to hear a lot about Kendrick Perkins and technicals

    May 26, 2010, 11:01 PM EDT

    These playoffs had way too little controversy. Luckily, Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals supplied us with all we’re going to be needing for a while. In the first quarter, Paul Pierce drove after a perimeter whistle was called. Gortat double fouled him and sent him to the ground. Kendrick Perkins reached down to…

  18. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics: Rashard Lewis not feeling good on, off court

    May 26, 2010, 6:56 PM EDT

    Rashard Lewis has not been right in the Eastern Conference Finals, he has averaged 7 points a game on 29 percent shooting. He is key — the Magic need him to stretch out the Celtics defense. And he has not been right. Maybe because he has not been feeling right. Lewis has been fighting a…

  19. Barack Obama talks basketball

    May 26, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    Earlier today we gave you the highlights of Barack Obama talking basketball with Marv Albert, but fresh off the White House’s own YouTube channel here is the entire interview. What I want now more than anything is a Barack Obama basketball with the presidential seal on it (watch the video). However, I fear breaking into…
