  1. Jeanie Buss: "Phil will be coaching next year, somewhere"

    Apr 29, 2010, 2:45 AM EDT

    Forget The Real Housewives of Orange County. Heck, forget the South Fork Ranch and Dallas. The Buss family soap opera is far more delicious and entertaining. In our latest episode, Jeanie Buss — the daughter with the business mind and the posed-for-Playboy body, who is dating the head coach of daddy’s franchise — told ESPNLosAngeles…

  2. NBA Playoffs: Denver executes on offense, stays alive against Utah

    Apr 29, 2010, 2:04 AM EDT

    The Nuggets aren’t going to win this series on the strength of their defense. That much is clear. In order to make that strategy work, they need to play a near-perfect offensive game for a full 48 minutes. On Wednesday night, they did just that to stave off elimination.  The Nuggets started the game out…

  3. NBA Playoffs, Bucks Hawks game 5: Atlanta fears the deer now

    Apr 29, 2010, 1:01 AM EDT

    Atlanta fears the deer now. This was supposed to be easy. The Hawks have athletes all over the floor, they are the more physically gifted team in this series. The Bucks were without Andrew Bogut. But the Hawks play like Nuke LaLoosh — million-dollar arm and a five-cent head. With game five — and maybe…

  4. Let the LeBron James silly season begin: LeBron to Charlotte? Really?

    Apr 28, 2010, 8:07 PM EDT

    I’d like to say that the idea of LeBron James going to play for the Charlotte Bobcats next year is the silliest LeBron James rumor/theory we are going to hear in the next three months. It’s not. I’m leaning toward a “he is leaving America to play for FC Barcelona” rumor to win out. I…

  5. Dwight Howard gets $35,000 fine for calling out referees

    Apr 28, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    We told you this was coming. It was obvious. It was just a matter of when. Today. The league announced a $35,000 fine for Dwight Howard for criticizing the referees on his blog. What did he write that was (apparently) worth $35,000? “Ya’ll know that that series against Charlotte drove me crazy. I mean, it…

  6. Jerry Sloan was ready to fight Chris Webber (and we'd take Sloan)

    Apr 28, 2010, 4:58 PM EDT

    Chris Webber has become the weekly NBA guy on Fox Sport Radio’s Petros and Money show. There is the potential for good stuff here because Matt “Money” Smith knows his NBA. He used to be part of the Lakers radio team (before they switched stations this season) and provided the all-to-rare smart basketball talk on…

  7. Deron Williams thinks he's the best point guard in the league

    Apr 28, 2010, 4:24 PM EDT

    Deron Williams speaks the truth. Debatable truth, but truth. He did it at shootaround today, before his Jazz try to eliminate the Nuggets tonight. He told the Denver Post and other assembled media: “I think I’m the best point guard in the league. … I thought I was the best point guard in the league…

  8. NBA Playoffs, Bucks Hawks game 5: Mike Woodson, it's your move to save your defense

    Apr 28, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

    NBA playoff matchups are really a chess match. Every once in a while there is a queen with limitless powers on the board — your LeBron James, Dwyane Wade guys — but for the most part a coach’s pieces have limits. Can only move in an L-shape, can only move diagonally, can’t shoot from the…

  9. Rick Mahorn latest 90s forward to file bankruptcy

    Apr 28, 2010, 2:52 PM EDT

    This is the third NBA player to go belly up in recent weeks. It’s not funny, it’s all quite sad. The latest is one of the key Bad Boys, Rick Mahorn, according to the Detroit News. Mahorn, 51, and his wife filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy because of failed investments, the plummeting value of their Rochester…

  10. Ben Gordon has surgery on ankle

    Apr 28, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    Ben Gordon would pretty much like to forget about last season. The injuries, the losing, the shooting stroke gone awry (eFG dropped from 52 percent to 47 percent, three point shot from 41 percent to 32 percent). But before he could put it in the past, he had to get some ankle surgery. It went…

  11. LeBron James wants to be like Mike, own NBA team

    Apr 28, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    LeBron James is not trying to be the next Michael Jordan, he’s trying to be the first LeBron James. Just ask him. He admires Mike, but it’s not like he is trying to be like him… Well, except for owning a team someday, just like Mike. That’s what he told FanHouse. James, whose path to…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Nuggets limited by defensive execution, but also offensive scheme

    Apr 28, 2010, 12:58 PM EDT

    There’s no question that Denver’s inability to play defense is a big reason why they find themselves on the brink of elimination, but TrueHoop’s Kevin Arnovitz has discovered something of an oddity in the Nuggets’ deliberately inefficient offense: The Denver Nuggets have a secret arsenal of nearly unstoppable plays. There’s only one hitch headed into…

  13. Vinny Del Negro to twist in the wind while Bulls management pretends to think about decision

    Apr 28, 2010, 12:47 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro’s Bulls put up a fight. They did not back down from the mighty Cavaliers. LeBron James talked about their energy, and said the Bulls were well coached. Sure, the Bulls only won one game, but they were completely overmatched. All you can ask in that situation is to see some fight, and…

  14. Quote of the day, Dwyane Wade and losing do not mix

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    “This will be my last first-round exit for a while, I’ll tell you that.” –Dwyane Wade, after his Miami Heat were eliminated from the playoffs by the Boston Celtics. (Via TrueHoop). Take that for what it’s worth, you can read a lot into it, but the smart money is still on the help coming to…

  15. LeBron says he's worried, but fans shouldn't be

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    About that elbow… Relax. Nothing to worry about. Oh, sure, it’s some random thing that nobody knows what it is but his arm just goes numb at times, but why worry about that? What is wrong with you people. Don’t take my word for it, here are the words of LeBron James himself.   There…

  16. Kobe Bryant still king of NBA Jersey sales, LeBron is queen, Celtics fans will buy anything.

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant. Love him or hate him, you buy his gear. Admit it. The Lakers sudden defensive stopper topped the sales chart at NBA.com and the NBA Store in Manhattan for the second straight year, according to a league announcement Wednesday. LeBron James was second, because really the NBA is all about LeBron and Kobe…

  17. As the Larry Brown coaching saga turns: Philadelphia will talk to him, Charlotte plans for change

    Apr 28, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    This is starting to make federal financial reform look simple. The latest in the Larry Brown coaching saga is that the Philadelphia 76ers do want to talk to him, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. But only about being their coach, nothing more. The 76ers are poised to contact Larry Brown about their coaching vacancy, but…

  18. Sign of the future? Michael Beasley sits entire second half.

    Apr 28, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    With their season on the line, with the Miami Heat needing their best players on the floor, Michael Beasley sat. He did not start the second half of game five against the Celtics; he did not touch the court for the most crucial 24 minutes of the Heat’s season. Udonis Haslem played the entire half,…

  19. One of these days, Jamario, straight to the Moon

    Apr 28, 2010, 8:52 AM EDT

    It was Cleveland’s night. Chicago made the effort, but the Cavaliers have too much. For example, on a fast break, you best have a couple guys ready to stop LeBron James, but that opens up other opportunities.

  20. Scott Brooks has finally gotten through to Serge Ibaka with words, not gestures

    Apr 28, 2010, 7:55 AM EDT

    Serge Ibaka comes from a different world than any other NBA player. Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo to be specific. A world of refugees and war crimes. He was born number 15 out of 18 siblings. Yes, you read that right, 18. For him, basketball was a real escape. He came to the NBA with…
