  1. Will the Jazz trade a key player to keep Boozer? Probably not.

    May 10, 2010, 11:41 AM EDT

    The Utah Jazz will get some offseason help thanks to Isiah Thomas — he traded them the Knicks first round pick this year. But who to draft will be the easy question for the Jazz, the bigger question is what to do about free agent to be Carlos Boozer. Sign him? A sign-and-trade with another…

  2. Can the Atlanta Hawks afford to revamp and remodel?

    May 10, 2010, 11:11 AM EDT

    After a pathetic game three performance by the Atlanta Hawks — one that followed two other ugly losses to the Orlando Magic, which followed them getting pushed seven games by the Milwaukee Bucks — there are calls to break up the Hawks. There are calls to fire Mike Woodson (that one we’re down with). There…

  3. The Boston Celtics: This is Rajon Rondo's team now

    May 10, 2010, 9:57 AM EDT

    The Big Three. KG, PP and Ray Allen. The veteran All-Stars who got together to return Boston to glory. The men that hung a new banner in the Garden two years ago. Three men now part of Celtics lore. This is not their team any more. This is Rajon Rondo’s team. If they are going…

  4. Sixers continue effort to interview everyone on planet, Bill Laimbeer and Sam Mitchell are latest

    May 10, 2010, 9:40 AM EDT

    Philadelphia may or may not be any closer to finding a new head coach — that knowledge is only in the head of general manager Ed Stefanski and that is not a place I want to go — but they are getting their money’s worth out of the interview process. According to the Associated Press,…

  5. Rajon Rondo avoids being another LeBron James highlight, makes his own

    May 10, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT

    In the first game of the season, way back in October, Rajon Rondo had what looked like a breakaway layup, but instead it became a highlight chasedown block by LeBron James, who caught up with him and swatted it off the backboard. Fool me once… In the same situation in Game 4 Sunday, Rondo made…

  6. Ricky Rubio leads Barcelona to Euroleague title, says blowing off Minnesota was right call

    May 10, 2010, 8:31 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio is a basketball rock star. At 19 he just led Barcelona to the Euroleague championship Sunday, making some shots but mostly creating for others with natural gifts that have NBA Scouts drooling. He is the best point guard in Europe. Last summer — at 18 — he held his own against America’s best…

  7. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs Game 4: The deed is done.

    May 10, 2010, 1:15 AM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns just swept the San Antonio Spurs. The Phoenix Suns just swept the San Antonio Spurs. The Phoenix Suns just swept the San Antonio Spurs. Maybe if I type that phrase enough times, the basketball gods will tie my precious typing fingers into knots for my blasphemy. In what universe could the Suns…

  8. Joe Johnson backtracks on his comments on fans. Sort of. Not like they are keeping him anyway.

    May 9, 2010, 10:08 PM EDT

    Joe Johnson and his teammates were booed after game three. Well deserved, by the way, they quit. After the game Johnson said of the fans the kind of thing that a free agent to be says on his way out of town: “It’s about us in this locker room. We could care less if they…

  9. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 4: Rajon Rondo puts on a show while LeBron James doth defer too much

    May 9, 2010, 6:03 PM EDT

    We finally got a close one. And the Celtics finally have a hero besides Rajon Rondo. Tony Allen came in and played a huge game for the Celtics, who evened the series at 2-2 after a 97-87 win in Boston. Allen had 18 points off the bench and finished consistently off Rajon Rondo’s drive and…

  10. NBA Playoffs: Shaq, Duncan, Kobe, and the one for the thumb

    May 9, 2010, 3:12 PM EDT

    At Spurs blog Pounding the Rock, a discussion for today’s Game 4 centers around a plea from a fan to not allow the Spurs’ dynasty to die. But a line caught my eye. “I don’t want it to be over. I so desperately want to see Tim (Duncan) get his fifth ring (before Shaq, before…

  11. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs Game 4: With blood in the water, Phoenix will go for the quick kill

    May 9, 2010, 2:38 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker have become a basketball establishment in their eight seasons together. They’ve captured three titles, made it to the postseason in each of those eight seasons, and lost in the first round of the playoffs only once. They also have never, in the time that the three have been…

  12. NBA Playoffs Jazz Lakers: Carlos Boozer, the 75% All-Star

    May 9, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer has been a staple in Utah. The main frontcourt player. The big free agent brought in to lead them to prominence. Boozer regressed considerably last year, and looked very much expendable, prompting the Jazz to sign Paul Millsap to a longterm extension. Then, Boozer miraculously responded! Posted near career numbers! In no way,…

  13. The 1980 NBA Finals: Back when the Sixers were good, but Magic was better

    May 9, 2010, 1:09 PM EDT

    Just for fun Mother’s Day Sunday trip down memory lane. Here is a look back at the 1980s NBA Finals. It gave us two iconic moments, one the Dr. J behind the backboard scoop shot, and then Magic Johnson’s Game 6 at center. Relax and enjoy a little trip back down memory lane to when…

  14. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 4: The beginning of the end or the end of the beginning

    May 9, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    Look, there’s two ways this can go. If the Cavs come out and blow doors off hinges and win this game, the series is essentially over. Boston’s veteran crew knows better than to waste valuable vacation days, no matter what cliches they throw out about taking it one game at a time. or, Boston can…

  15. NBA Playoffs Hawks Magic Game 3: So, Mike Woodson's probably done

    May 9, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    The story’s the same, be it from Chris Sheridan or Tim Povtak. Yesterday was likely a must-win for Mike Woodson to keep his job. Yeah, 50 wins, playoffs the last three years, significant progress, down the tubes. Because after yesterday’s embarrassing 30 point loss to the Magic, that’ll pretty much be a wrap on Woodson…

  16. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs: Pace may have been the red herring

    May 9, 2010, 4:15 AM EDT

    If both the Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs are reduced to the most basic tenets of their respective basketball philosophies, it’s easy to paint them as foils. Steve Nash stands as something of an iconoclast in the Church of Popovich; even if Steve’s professionalism, leadership, and continued excellence don’t stray too far at all…

  17. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Jazz Game 3: The Jazz get everything they want, except the win

    May 9, 2010, 12:51 AM EDT

    What if? Not just what if Deron Williams nailed the crossover 22-footer, a favorite move of his and a shot he has buried so many times before? Not what if Wesley Mathews tip chance off that shot had gone in? But for the Utah Jazz, what if you do basically everything you want to do,…

  18. NBA Playoffs, Magic Hawks Game 3: Magic dominate Hawks, remain undefeated

    May 8, 2010, 8:31 PM EDT

    Well, so much for Atlanta turning into a completely different team on their home floor. The Hawks were 19-22 on the road this season and 34-7 at home, so it wasn’t completely unreasonable to expect them to be more competitive on Saturday than they were in the first two games of the series. Unfortunately for…

  19. Miami Heat tell players, their wives and girlfriends to stay away from VH1's "Basketball Wives."

    May 8, 2010, 7:53 PM EDT

    First the disclaimer: I have not watched Basketball Wives on VH1. Don’t plan to. Could not care less that the show exists. Just know I am not coming from a place of knowledge about the show. However, I do find it interesting what a reporter for the NBC affiliate in Miami found out — the…

  20. Raptors GM Colangelo on the hot seat?

    May 8, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Bryan Colangelo was considered a can’t miss GM when the Raptors hired him, coming from the Suns who he helped build into a playoffs, if not championship, juggernaut. But things haven’t gone so well north of the border, as the team actually seems to have regressed significantly since losing to the Magic in 2008. And…
