  1. NBA Playoffs Bucks Hawks Game 7: Hawks too strong, too good, too much to fear the deer

    May 2, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    In the playoffs, how you advance doesn’t matter, as long as you advance. And while the Milwaukee Bucks have nothing to be ashamed of, putting on a great performance in spite of missing Andrew Bogut, the Hawks will move on to face the Orlando Magic. Lucky them. The Hawks defeated the Bucks 95-74 to advance…

  2. George Karl suffers setback, admitted to hospital

    May 2, 2010, 4:13 PM EDT

    Things had been going well for George Karl. Well, not for his team — that got pretty ugly as the undisciplined Nuggets were ousted by the masters of discipline from Utah — but in his battle with cancer. However, according to AP, Karl’s life partner and mother of his child said on her blog that…

  3. Andrew Bynum will start for Lakers, how long he goes remains to be seen

    May 2, 2010, 2:53 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum is going to give it a shot in game one, and Phil Jackson is going to start him, he said in his pregame press conference. “Andrew is prepared to play…” Jackson said. “If he’s limited in what he can do. His ability to run, pull out, if it’s something that’s going to hamper…

  4. Bulls might be reeling Del Negro in off the hook

    May 2, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    The Bulls are going to fire head coach Vinny Del Negro, right? I mean, it’s been talked about for months. And there was actually a physical confrontation between Del Negro and VP Paxson. There’s no way he survives through Tuesday. ..OR IS THERE?! Sorry, been watching old mysteries all weekend. The Chicago Daily Herald reports…

  5. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Jazz game 1: Phil Jackson and Jerry Sloan get together, again

    May 2, 2010, 12:34 PM EDT

    Did Phil Jackson and Jerry Sloan even bother to look at the advanced scouting reports for this series? These two coaches — running the exact same systems — have been going at it since the mid 1990s. There are no secrets here. No surprises, no new counters that have not been tried multiple times before.…

  6. Avery Johnson will likely be coaching somewhere next year

    May 2, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Unraveling the truth about Avery Johnson’s coaching ability is a tricky gig. He’s 194-70 all time, which is pretty amazing. He’s also known for two of the most disappointing postseasons in NBA history, failing to cash in twice on the Mavericks when they were the best team in the league, even being ejected in the…

  7. NBA Playoffs: Bucks Hawks Game 7: We've got drama

    May 2, 2010, 11:10 AM EDT

    Drama. This series has had plenty of it. More than it has had beautiful basketball, it has had drama. Games seven are by their very nature, dramatic. This is going to be fun to watch. Pretty? Probably not. But entertaining. The strategy here is pretty simple, it’s played out over the series. In their three…

  8. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 1: Elbow this

    May 1, 2010, 10:41 PM EDT

    Everything was going so well for Boston. Shaq missing chippies. Rajon Rondo dominating. Kendrick Perkins protecting inside. Kevin Garnett playing as well as he has this season. A lead, in Cleveland, and just a quarter and a half to close. Plus, LeBron’s elbow was making him timid. Elbow this. (Click here to see PBT’s first…

  9. NBA Playoffs Celtics Cavs Game 1 Halftime: Celtics have all the answers so far

    May 1, 2010, 8:32 PM EDT

    For all the improvements the Cavs were supposed to have made, in Game 1, the Celtics looked like they had all the answers. The Celtics lead 54-43 at the half, Rajon Rondo has 19 points and 8 assists, LeBron James looks hurt and the Cavs look lost. The Cavs worked to get inside position on…

  10. Andrew Bynum has 'small' cartilage tear

    May 1, 2010, 7:46 PM EDT

    Kid cannot get healthy. Just can’t do it. Mike Bresnahan of the LA Times is reporting that Andrew Bynum has a “small tear” in the front cartilage of his right knee. According to the Lakers’ medical staff, the tear is asymptomatic, with Bynum being completely unaware of the tear. Unfortunately, the tear started as what…

  11. The Bulls have double the (cap) space in mind

    May 1, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    The thought was that the Bulls, though undoubtedly having some front office troubles and suffering with a lack of scoring, were in pretty good shape. They have the cap space to sign a max free agent (if possible, Dwyane Wade, if not, Chris Bosh, and the last plan is likely Joe Johnson). And one of…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Jackson, Brooks talk the series that was

    May 1, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

    Well, the Coach of the Year ran into the Coach of the Century and the old timer won. But you have to say it was a hell of a series for both teams. Here’s a selection of both coaches’ post game comments.    http://nbcprobasketballtalk.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/33399740

  13. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 1: The rematch begins

    May 1, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    It’s right that it should go this way. These two never faced one another last year, and now that the Celtics are at full strength and the Cavaliers are ruling the roost, we need to settle this. The 2008 Champions, seeking to regain what they feel is their rightful title. And the Cavaliers, aiming to…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Grant Hill is moving on for the first time

    May 1, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns, despite what they will tell you, must be feeling a sense of dread. They’ve seen this script so many times, it’s etched into their memory like a bad family movie stuck on repeat. Robert Horry. The hipcheck. The Duncan Three. Parker bloodying Nash’s nose. Michael Finley. Burce Bowen. The hipcheck. The hipcheck.…

  15. NBA Playoffs: The end of the Oklahoma road

    May 1, 2010, 9:35 AM EDT

    Bet you never thought you’d wind up missing Oklahoma. Oklahoma City brought something else to these playoffs. The crowd was part of it. A sea of blue (and once, white) that wrought a college atmosphere with an NBA intensity. A full house, stocked to the brim of maniacs, devoted under one cause, the continued survival…

  16. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Thunder game 6: The Thunder learn some hard lessons, are eliminated by Lakers

    May 1, 2010, 4:46 AM EDT

    Chin up, Oklahoma City. Sure, losing sucks, we get that. But you have to learn how to win in the NBA playoffs — people remember Michael Jordan the champion, not the guy who lost to the Detroit Pistons three straight years on the playoffs. Enjoy the ride, you have a fun team, a special team.…

  17. NBA Playoffs: Nuggets collapse down the stretch as the Jazz clinch the series

    May 1, 2010, 1:30 AM EDT

    Near the end of the first half, it looked like the Jazz were well on their way to rolling over the Denver Nuggets and clinching the series. They were up double-digits midway through the second quarter and the crowd was going crazy. Not only that, but Denver’s vaunted offense was stalling.  Then Joey Graham showed…

  18. NBA Playoffs, Bucks Hawks Game 6: Ugliest playoff game of the year, but Atlanta will take it.

    May 1, 2010, 12:04 AM EDT

    That was about as much fun to watch as a 1998 Knicks playoff game. There was nothing pretty about it. The Atlanta Hawks don’t care; they won 83-69 to force a game seven Sunday in Atlanta. Atlanta had an offensive rating of 98.8 (points per 100) possessions, Milwaukee 82.2. (The Nets on the season had…

  19. Chris Bosh asks on twitter where he should go, fail whale unleashed

    Apr 30, 2010, 11:23 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh must love to see the twitter fail whale. That or he has been able to buy part of the company and wanted to drive up the traffic numbers. Those reasons make more sense than he actually wanted the advice of the public when he tweeted:  “Been wanting to ask. Where should I go next…

  20. Could Michael Beasley be traded to the Wizards?

    Apr 30, 2010, 7:36 PM EDT

    Our own Ira Winderman has suggested that the Miami Heat would be best off dumping Michael Beasley for cap space, and if they can get a rack of shootaround basketballs out of it, that was gravy. He’s not alone in South Beach — people are basically done with Beasley. (Well, not Heat coach Erik Spoelstra.)…
